Snow at Biz611

We had our first real “flurry” of snow around Thanksgiving. I happened to be at the office (Biz611) working on Ionicware/SEOClerks tasks. It started snowing pretty hard and I love snow, so I got excited. Unfortunately, it melted by 9:00AM EST. Anyway, I took some really cool pictures from our Ionicware Office space at Biz611. …

Things that last a lifetime…

  We got Scarlett’s lifetime hunting and fishing (sportsman) license for NC the other day. Before she is 1 years old, we could purchase this for $200. While we were there (Walmart), we (my wife Mindy and me) also got our lifetime licenses for fishing. For us, just for fishing in North Carolina was $250 …

I don’t have Internet

I have no Internet right now. It makes me wonder, what did I do before Internet was mainstream? Should I go outside? Mow the grass again? Watch TV? Video game? Wash the cars? These thoughts were pleasant until I realized my phone still has the Internet, with the WordPress app no less!
