Happy Fourth of July

Welcome to my new Blog

I decided that my Corporate Alien Blog was too specific, focusing mainly on social commentary. I needed a blog to express myself in a variety of other ways. If I find an interesting product or book, no matter what its category, I can use this blog to honestly review it. If I come across some interesting sights and take some unusual photos, I can use this blog to share them with the world.

I want this blog to be a daily blog. On some days there's just nothing to say. On the days I become blog-blocked, I've collected numerous quotes from the world's greatest minds and promise to, at the very least, post a different quote daily.

I'll try to keep it interesting. I hope you enjoy my latest attempt at net literature.
