The Most Important Work You Do

“Fortunes are NOT made in the boom times….That is merely the collection period. Fortunes are made in depressions or lean times when the wise man overhauls his mind, his methods, his resources, and gets in training for the race to come.” – George Wood Bacon Part of my daily routine involves an hour of self […]

You Have Got to Hustle.

“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.”  Abraham Lincoln I often find quotes from Abraham Lincoln to be the most inspiring.  Not only was he a man ahead of his time he had the ability to communicate in a simple, honest way.  The quote above is […]

2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC.

The new QLOCKTWO by Biegert & Funk is an all alphabet time piece.  No need to count, this wall mounted clock clearly […]

Cities XL

I have been playing Sim City since I was in college.  My roommate had the game on his computer and I was in love after I created my first road.  Over the years Sim City has changed, improved and spun off entire worlds meeting the needs of the God complex in each of us. New […]

Watch What Happens.

Anyone who knows me knows I am a fiend for watches.  I own many of them and I am always looking for the next awesome watch to add to my collection.  My latest object of unhealthy desire is the URWERK UR-CC1, coded named the King Cobra. URWERK is Felix Baumgartner (watchmaker) and Martin Frei (artist).  […]
