"Historic Photo" of the Week

A friend, Mike Oria a Brentwood photographer, stumbled across this banner and forwarded it to me. He said "it made me think of you." I like that. Thanks Mike.

I was actually riding off into the retirement horizon. Happy to play more golf, drink fine Kentucky bourbon and smoke cigars on the front porch. Content to do the newsletter and maintain some local websites for favored clients. Then "I got bit" by the responsive website bug. I know clients need it, it's very cool and now I'm hooked. Not to the extent I was but for slow and steady.

We'll be launching a couple new websites that I'm very proud of. We have more to do. But, they will have to wait. I need to improve the process of how we get work done first. I'm happy for the excitement of new frontiers and helping others but I refuse to take on unnecessary pressures.

I'm very fortunate to stay as busy as I am. With one new fully responsive website almost ready for launch, another one I hope to get design approval on today and another one waiting in the on deck circle I'm very happy and a grateful man. Clue to the one on deck. Can you guess who?

Two fine KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON WHISKEY'S if you know where to drink you can drink the good stuff for well prices. Take the 1792 on the left this is the top shelf bourbon at Mac's Old House in Antioch you get a pretty decent shot for $5. How can you beat that? The Bulliet Bourbon on the right is another fine whiskey just $5.75 for a fine shot at the 19th Hole Casino & Lounge in Antioch. This is my public service announcement for the week.
