Happy New Year, 2009!


2009 is shaping up pretty well so far. I’ve migrated all of my old, obsolete web sites in to new and sleeker versions that will hopefully generate more interest, traffic, and with any luck, my reader base! I’ve started planning my long awaited book (for me anyway) on Africa, and really come a long way in diversifying my income streams. But to top it all off, my back fence neighbors took out their 40 ft palm tree that made a mess all over my vegetable beds, and started numerous baby palm trees in my back lawn for the past 8 years.

So far, so good, and now I’ll take another step by wishing you the same happy thoughts, and fewer irritations in your life for 2009!

A Day of Hope For Families This Thanksgiving!

A Day of Hope is a program of ASI, California State University, Stanislaus. We collaborate with public and community members in conducting fund raising events, working to raise money to purchase food for needy families. The food items are later assembled into baskets and are delivered to Stanislaus County families for the Thanksgiving holiday.

A Day of Hope is only three weeks away from its basket and turkey delivery day on Nov 23rd, and they’re working very hard to keep their commitment to feed 250 families in the Central Valley this Thanksgiving.

There’s a lot of ways to get involved, locally or through monetary donations.

Join A Day of Hope on Facebook and help those less fortunate have a Happy Thanksgiving!

BadMsM & The Tribes Casebook

Well, in case you’ve just gotten your copy of Tribes by Seth Godin, Seth has an extra bonus for you: a free PDF download of the Tribes casebook!

The casebook was compiled from the site on Ning. It was invitation only for the first few months, and I was very humbled to be included. There’s a lot of good things going on there.

FYI- my submission is on page 173!
