When I wrote about How To Procrastinate Filing Income Taxes, I had no idea that it had the potential to be rewarding. Over at My New Choice, I received an email from an H&R Block representative that was offering me a coupon code for a free copy of TaxCut plus e-file – a $64.95 value. […]


Paying It Forward

This morning I stopped to get gas on my way to work and as I pulled into the station there was a woman walking towards the car parked in front of mine and she flashed me a nice smile. Thinking that I must be looking rather handsome this morning, I realized I was wrong when […]


Earlier tonight I received an email from Danielle informing me that she had added me to her edition of the My Name Is My Domain list. In case you are not aware, this idea originated with Gary Lee’s creation of the My Name Is My Domain link train. To be fair to others that have […]

According to an article that I read over at TechCrunch, Yahoo Mail users will soon have free unlimited storage. In May 2007, Yahoo will be eliminating the 1GB storage limit on the free accounts and will be giving unlimited access to all mail user accounts. If you are one of the people that has paid […]


Finding Your Identity

As any new blogger has experienced, part of the beginning phase is finding your identity or niche in the blogosphere. When I started My New Choice, I had a very clear definition that I wanted that site to be focused on trying to help educate people on how to eliminate debt and live below their […]

As I just noted on My New Choice, I have had very little time the last week or so to keep active on the blogs and spend time with the family while meeting the demands being placed at work. If anyone would have an interest in writing a couple of posts as a guest blogger […]

After spending the entire day in the office yesterday, I spent the evening with some old friends playing a variety of card games and enjoying a few cold beers. It was good to see some of the people that I had not seen in a few years and many memories and stories were shared. As […]

As I was bouncing around the Interweb tonight I came across a site about the Nitto Scion tC, which is a sponsored car that has taken a Scion tC and modified it to the point that it is turning out 500+ horsepower. In reading the forums about this car, you can imagine that the biggest […]


Should I Be Using MySpace?

by derek on March 22, 2007 · 19 comments

A recent post by Oubipaws on a quick MySpace top friends trick got me thinking about MySpace and whether or not it holds a place for me. In the few times I have actually visited various MySpace pages, I am usually turned off by the completely obnoxious designs and music that starts playing on each […]


Visiting Atlanta

by derek on March 21, 2007 · 6 comments

With an upcoming business trip to Atlanta, I thought I would ask for feedback from all of you on recommendations for preferred restaurants and places that require a visit while in town. I’ve been to Atlanta a few times but it has been many years since my last visit, so I am not that familiar […]
