Un-employed – Check out Career Day with Todd

If you haven’t been exposed yet to Odd Todd, may I suggest that you visit his web-site.   (LINK)   Todd has done exceptional job of identifying the self-esteem, motivation, and psychological issues that one encounters when laid off , out of work and unable to find work…    As it turns out the real Todd, creating these comics (while unemployed) and posting them on his web-site has gained quite a following!  Likely a lot of un-employed folks (myself included) that too much time, and get distracted from sending out resumes and the like…

Looking for Love? Look at the Car!

ford-saleen-s72Will this Valentine’s Day have you looking for love? Maybe you just want to know more about your mate. Not only does the type of vehicle we drive say a lot about us, but so does the color. New research actually shows what kind of car you should look for to find the mate you’re looking for.   What Your Car or Truck Says About You ? 

Just because you might be in love with the Porsche 911 doesn’t mean you should be attracted to the driver. Its buyers are 86.8% male with the average age of 51. They make a lot of money and often give themselves big rewards for personal successes.

This might be good news if you’re not in the market for a soul mate. In that case, go ahead and drive something fast and sexy. For speed daters, a sports car is the way to go.

If you are looking to attract a woman, you may want to steer clear of women driving an SUV. Nearly 80% of all female SUV buyers are married.

If marriage is what you’re looking for, you may want to give off a mature, financially-responsible, and ready-to-settle-down vibe. Drive a hybrid. Save money, look modern, and score points for going green.

Not all cars or trucks were studied, but some psychologists think you can learn something from any vehicle.

Black cars denote an aggressive personality or someone who’s an outsider or rebel.
Silver cars indicate someone who’s cool, calm and slightly aloof.
Green cars can often be chosen by people with hysterical tendencies.
Yellow cars signify someone who is idealistic and novelty loving.
Blue cars are chosen by the more introspective, reflective and cautious driver.
Gray cars represent those who are calm, sober and dedicated to their work.
Red cars denote those who are full of zest, energy and drive and who think, move and talk quickly.
Pink cars are chosen by gentle, loving and affectionate drivers.
White cars represent status-seeking extrovert drivers.
Cream cars are the least likely to be involved in accidents and denote self-contained and controlled owners.

These are all generalizations, and many people say their car color does not reflect their personality. But it might just be worth thinking about if you’re thinking about love.

2008 Year in Review

In attempt to summarize 2008 in a very quick review, this is the best I could come up with, without boring all of you to death…  So if you have a “few” minutes, here is 2008 in review!

US plans for Iraq withdrawal – NOT ?

This should indeed prove to be interesting over the next few months.  Which will it be; 16 months, 3 years, or never?    Gee -we have this huge debate over bailing out the US auto companies for $13 billion, but spending another$10 billion a month in Iraq, not a problem…?   Maybe the banks that took that took the $350 billion could fund the Iraq war for the next 3 years!   They sure haven’t shared any of it towards  helping the US economy…  The BIG picture these days is hard to see!   We don’t seem to have a plan?    A ship at sea without anyone at the wheel… We have elected fools and thief’s for our leaders, so expecting much else is just not in the cards…   OK, I’ll get off my soap box now!

Who Wins? – You Decide!

from The Ogstylez

This is a refreshing break from the polls, the news accounts of who said what, the name calling, the half truths, etc…   I often thought as a child that wars should be decided by national leaders having it out in a one-on-one…   Why not!   It’s no less childish than what is going on now…   So who won?
