IntraState Meat Processing

Californian regulations, effecting other States, have made the news again; previously for their emission standards and forcing electric vehicles, and this time for how pork is to be processed in order to be sold in Californian stores. How can California have such a profound impact on other States with a moderate request on how their food is raised? What regulations are already in place that effect what foods are even in the super markets we frequent? Are there ways around certain regulations to be able to feed ourselves and our families?

What Happened to the Starter Home?

I woke up the other morning to the news asking where the starter home has gone. A question that has been asked several times for some time now. How do we choose where we'll live? What are some of the different factors that influence the prices on homes?

Everybody's Working for their Weekend

Everyone puts in hours at the office for the chance to earn just enough extra money to relax and unwind for their weekend. But should we just be aiming for those two days we see every week? How much effort are we willing to put in for our forever weekend: retirement?

Balancing the Grid

With the war in Ukraine still ongoing, the European Union is experiencing an energy crises, with California and their electric car mandate seeming to be not too far behind. How many dominoes are in the series of rising electricty costs or in the line of removal of not-so-Green energy?

Paying with a Sin Tax

Living in 2 different States has shown me different ways of tax utilization. Trash disposal is one of the bigger stark views I was able to see right off the bat. The cost of food is almost on par, but car registration is less. What level of societal contributions (taxes) do we endure to make sure our community is operating at a level we approve of?

Hopping Back on the Bicycle

I have been on a hiatus to move across the country, and it's time to hop back on the bicyle, and start this part of my journey back up again. I spend a quick moment bringing everyone up to speed of where I am at. I give a BIG thank you to the people who supported my efforts while I was gone and sent in financial support. Feel free to file this one under ramblings in my attempt to find my footing again.

Branding in a Name

How much of a “brand” is in a name? I see cars with the same name as one from years past, but are they the same car? Bands that change up members, at different levels of frequency, do they ever become not the initial band?

International Tensions

Russia has invaded Ukraine. The West has put heavy sanctions on Russia for its actions. Where is it our time and place to get involved with such disputes? Are we obligated due to financial or humanitarian reasons, or both?
