I have been privileged to have seen many places in my travels around the world. Some exotic; some historic; all of them a life experience I will cherish and be thankful I've had the opportunity to see…
There is one place, however, that I am drawn to; I constantly find myself yearning to return to its land of marsupials and platypi; of “Vegimite” and didgeridoos: Australia!
This wonderful landmass is about as unique as the Galápagos; here you will find animals and vegetation unlike any other place on earth – and most of it is publically accessible. Having just returned from there,... Read More
Auctions and charity raffles don't have to be boring. There are great little tricks you can use to jazz up your events. So throw away those boring raffle tickets.
One of the hottest trends for event raffles and give-ways is using ten liner strip cards. These cards work great for big auctions, events and galas. It’s easy to create a bonus game to give away coupons, drink tokens, gift cards, etc.
Instead of using boring raffle tickes, use the strip cards for raffles. Sell each line for a certain amount of money (make it easy - charge $5 or $10 per line but make sure you make money... Read More
1. Stroll the Highline. New urban oasis on an obsolete elevated railway on the westside. 2nd section opens this week on June 8th.
2. Visit MoMA; World class museum where you can impress your date with your infinite wisdom of Picasso's eating habits. Hours extend to 8 on Fridays, and 8:45 on Thursdays in July and August.
3. Kayak the Hudson or East River. Maybe not for a 1st date (unless you decide your date is a jerk in the first few minutes, and you want to take the chance on seeing them tip into the murky East River after a barge comes by) but brilliant for those who are outdoor-inclined.... Read More
The biggest question being tossed around lately at me is: Do you think that blogging will eventually die out? My answer to that is: As long as you’re staring into that beautiful screen of yours where you’re getting most of your information from, then “NO”, no way, of course not. Not only is blogging bringing in a little extra cash for some of you bloggers but also it’s become a social phenomenon. Today it’s a whole new universe, and at BlogCatalog we’re connecting not only to our readers but also to the people behind their blogs. Our own blog, on BlogCatalog, has become quite interesting...

Dear Talk About It,
I found out from a friend of mine who does exotic dancing that Charlie Sheen is open to bringing in another goddess in his home! I'm so excited I don't know what to do. I have watched all of his shows and all of his recent interviews and think he is so hot! I really want to be with him but I'm having a hard time deciding how I can capture his attention. My girlfriend knows this guy who knows one of Charlie's former bodyguards who can help give him something from me. What should I do?
Hot for Charlie <3

Although Philip Lucky Dube has left this crazy world, he is always remembered. Dube was gunned down on October 18, 2007. His untimely death will always brings heartbreaking memories. He was unjustly assassinated while the world still needed him to preach peace, freedom for all human beings. He was gunned down in the presence of his son and daughter, whom he had dropped off in Rosettenville, Johannesburg in what is assumed to be a car hijacking crime.
Although the Rastafarians in Jamaica do not believe in death, it is difficult for me to follow that tradition and simply state that, ‘Him... Read More
A few months ago marked the 1st anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death. A death that shocked the world to a certain degree. He left a legion of fans in mournful remembrance. Jackson’s death, like his life, was shrouded in conspiracy and bizarre events. Another Icon becomes the victim of fame. We should have seen it coming. History it seems, when it comes to popular Icons, revels on repetition. Think Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee and Kurt Cobain. So many of these Icons left us in their prime. So what went wrong and why the trend?
An Icon by definition is a devotional... Read More

Shaun you're probably nearer the mark than most. "mmm...right right" spoken with contemplative "yawn" inflection when you join a writers' group or dare blurt out in front of established writers (any writers) you tend to scribble, usually sending all...
Very interesting train of thoughts, but I found myself asking, what about those that write under a ghost name...is it to keep their privacy, or perhaps lack of ego...I actually can see both sides, especially when you are talking about writing fiction....
