Spend Lots of Money

Financial Advice from a Tightwad

Being cheap is expensive when it comes to buying everyday use items. Folks throw 1000’s of dollars down the drain in the name of frugality (being a tightwad). I’m guilty of this myself, but am learning. The list of some of those items below may help clarify.

Member of the Most Exclusive Club on Earth

Glory! glory!, Saddleback Leather is part of the club!!! It’s a great honor to be part of the most unique and exclusive club in the world, but it’s not any fun. It’s the only of it’s kind that every company wishes they were in, but none want to be invited to.

This club is free to join, but very expensive to be a part of. Some members pay millions of dollar per year in dues. Only the best and most popular are invited and they can’t say no.

Now don’t forget, I’m a man and so my list is, most likely, very different from what would be found on a woman’s. Am I the only man who enjoys these things? Do women enjoy them more? Feel free to add your own onto the end. Keep it PG-13 or under.

Two Unbreakable Laws

Two Unbreakable Laws

I spent a lot of my high school and college years underwater. And the way I got there was by jumping into it from really high cliffs and bridges. So, I feel like I have authority to speak about this unbreakable law with confidence.

Here you go. If you jump off something, then you’ll go downwards every single time. It’s called gravity. You can’t avoid it or get around it. Okay, so then here’s another unbreakable law that’s just as true as gravity and you can’t avoid it. God has established this law just like he did gravity. The cool thing about this unbreakable law is that you have some say in itIt can either really suck or be really great.

Tips On Making Roadtrips More Enjoyable

Tips For Making Road Trips More Enjoyable

Packing leather luggage and other tips

Well, I’m not the authority on how to enjoyably roadtrip even though I DID LIVE IN MY CAR FOR QUITE AWHILE AND HAVE DRIVEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MILES around almost the entire continent of North America . . . and I did it all for pleasure. Below are a few of my tips for making a road trip more enjoyable. I just learned the first one on this current trip.

Leather luggage in Moab, UT

I’ve rolled my car, crashed other peoples’, killed lots of things, slept in my car, truck bed, on the rack, alone, with my dog, under the stars, freezing in ice storms and hot and sticky with mosquitos. And I’ve slept with one eye open more than once. I’ve learned a couple of things along the way that may or may not be of value to you and maybe not. One thing I’m sure of though is that you probably have a couple of tips of your own. Feel free to help us out with one of your tips at the end.

Dave’s Christmas Gift Ideas That They’ll Use and Remember

Dave’s Gift Ideas That They’ll Use and Remember

Only My Very Favorite Things

Below is a Christmas list of the very best and coolest gifts that I’ve either given, received or wanted really bad. Notice I don’t suggest anything that I make. These are just things that’ll make you famous. An example, one particularly broke Christmas, I bought my nephews a 30 ft. length of thick rope for $12. They and all the neighborhood kids left their Christmas presents at home to play with that rope all Christmas day and into the night. To be the favorite around the Christmas tree this year.

Burrrrrrito or Berido?

When English speakers order a burrito at a local restaurant, should they pronounce Burrito as “Burrrrrrito” and roll their R like Speedy Gonzales or should they pronounce it “Berido” like all other non-Spanish speakers of the world? Perhaps it’s prudent for people to pass on pronouncing properly. Possibly? There are a number of reasons why I don’t use foreign accents for single words unless I’m in that country, and I can roll my R’s.

Psychologically Unemployable

So, you know how I spell BOSS backwards? Double S… O-B. I don’t like ’em. Never have, never will. Bunch of money hungry power starved Big fat ashpalt hole in Costa Ricaasphalt holes. Actually, I always like them at first, but it doesn’t take long for them to fall out of my good graces. They’re cool until the nagging and complaining and demanding starts, and then it’s all over. Well, there was this one guy who was cool for about 3 weeks, but he was the exception, not the rule.
