Some great stuff here. makes me want to go on vacation right now. too bad I don’t have many days to take off… and the holidays are coming up so it will be just crazy hard to get a day off.

By the way, I will be doing some major updating here in the next month. Expect that if you are a regular visitor that you will be able to come here and see some specific things. For example, starting next month (and you may see some examples of this already) I will be posting most of my politically related stories on Sundays. Another example is that anything that has to do with autos will most likely be posted on Tuesdays. This will be a general rule but not always followed.

There will also be updates to the detail pages and more channel posts for those who just want to stop by on specific days to watch/read specific stuff. The same thing will be happening to my twitter channel of which will be sub-divided very shortly (general, lifestyle + travel, politics, tech and IMPORTANT

I am also VERY SLOWLY developing a site that is based off of what I am doing here but will be more large scale and more community based. More info on that as it comes.

The Buick Enclave – Kelley Blue Book’s Review

(I must have this car)

(no I am not old)

Quote from Kelly’s Blue Book:

Many people think Buick only makes cars that appeal to the oldest of drivers. But it may be time to reassess that opinion. With the Enclave crossover-SUV, Buick shows that its vehicles can not only be comfortable and quiet but also, dare we say, cool. The 2008 Buick Enclave isn’t Buick’s first foray into the world of crossover SUVs but it is the brand’s strongest effort yet. Upscale styling, a distinctive interior and an obsessive focus on noise reduction distinguish the 2008 Buick Enclave from the Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia, which share its underpinnings.

I really like this car. Fuel mileage is pretty good too for a SUV. Maybe I willget this instead of my Nissan Quest… naaaa I’ll just get both lol

Age is NO obstacle! On the internet or to becoming wealthy

Age is no obstacle to great wealth… I totally agree with How to Make 7 Million in 7 Years™ blog.

Whether its a blog, a company you started or tring to get into stock investing, it is never too late. While you may want to start as soon as you enter the workforce (and for some enterprising youngsters even before then), yu don’t HVAE TO start.

You know about Kentucy Fried Chicken (KFC) right? How old was the Kernal when he got his company started?

I am sure there are more examples, but the point will be the same; your future is up to you. This is literally the beginning of a new age and that age is the Information Age (as opposed to the Industrial Age). If you have the data and take that data and turn it into information and take that info and turn it into knowledge, they you got yourself a way to creating wealth for yourself.

This is the bottom line: What we all are facing is that we can no longer depend on a “finish school and find a job” mentality. A business will not pay for your retirement, medicade will probably have collapsed (along with social security), and that 1 Million dollar 401K paying you 30-50G a year may not be enough to live off of if inflation has its way.

I truly believe that we are headed back into the type of economy where people need to be entrepreneurs and business people who own their own business. You will not be able to depend on just getting a job to get you to the next level. We have 2 parents working just to maybe be able to afford a home with their 2 kids and they can’t spend time with their kids either. Education costs way more than it did when our parents were going to school and will cost incredibly more when our kids go. 2 million in our 401k and our Roth Ira’s might not be good enough when we have medical bills, medicine to buy and operations to stay alive… not to mention being alive 30 years after you turn 65 when you are almost expected to retire.
