Here’s the back-story: Before we married, Yeni bought her first car. An exciting time for Yeni, having just moved to the US, buying her first car was a pretty big deal. She chose a Nissan Versa, in bright blue, which was promptly named Bluecito. It’s a little car, but it’s a fun little car. Drives… Continue reading Not Choosing Nissan Again
I have a hate / hate relationship with ATT. A call I just had with tech support re-emphasized why I hate this company (and why we are leaving them in a month).

Of course, if you remember my FTC disclosure… If I get something for free and I write about it, I guarantee it… Continue reading Asterisk (The Definitive Guide) 4th Edition Review
Listen… I’m grateful for our relationship. I do not regret these past 7+ years. After all, you and I have shared some significant events. When we first got together I was single, had an amazing dog, and was finishing up my degree. You were great in helping me connect with other students in my classes… Continue reading Facebook: I'm Breaking Up with You

Yeni and I have been lucky enough to get to know John Spence. John is an amazing business resource and fortunately (for us) lives in Gainesville.
