Book Review: Simpleology: The Simple Science of Getting What You Want

Simpleology: The Simple Science of Getting What You Want by Mark Joyner is a book I came across surfing through the RBdigital app (yet another source for checking out audio books from your local library.) I was a bit doubtful when the very first thing it instructed me to do was to go a URL that is no longer working. My BS detector was buzzing like crazy. It only got worse as the author started promising how to get what you want with the very least effort. It seemed like a setup for a bad infomercial. For some reason, I...

The Great War – a great series!

YouTube is not just for Fails and cats playing piano If you still think of YouTube as a collection of short stupid videos, well… you’re right…. BUT it is so much more as well! I was turned onto this series by a good friend. The Great War is the story of World War I told in a very unique way.

Each episode, host Indy Neidell reports events as they happened using clips,...

It was not exactly a sequel but rather an unpublished manuscript that was turned down decades earlier by publishers. There is even some conspiracy theorists who say the entire thing was a creation by Lee’s estate to cash in on her name. Regardless of when it was written, who...

What do you subscribe to?

The world has turned into one of subscriptions. No longer do people just purchase things… the subscription model has all but taken over nearly every aspect of our lives. I have subscriptions to: Storage Accounting Music Television & film Gaming Gifts Shopping Reading Business services and I’m sure one or two things I’ve forgotten It makes sense from the standpoint of a business in that it normalizes cashflow, builds customer loyalty, increases net spend, lowers accounting costs… tons of benefits. What about from the consumer point of view? It lowers the cost of individual items, lowers the ‘hassle’ factor,...

Book Review: The Name of God is Mercy

Once again seeing what someone else was reading on GoodReads has led me to pick up a book I never would have thought of before. The book The Name of God is Mercy by Pope Francis stuck me as an opportunity to learn a bit more about the Catholic view of mercy. My father grew up Catholic but we never went to church when growing up so my own religious education didn’t really happen until I took it upon myself.  During my teen years, I investigated the beliefs and practices of many sects – Catholic, Baptist, Jehovah’s Witness, Lutheran, Methodist,...
