There’s more to crowdfunding than you might think

The funding landscape has continued to shift and evolve over time. Traditional funding sources such as bank loans, angel investors, or venture capital still remain as prominent options for many, however, new avenues for startup funding have also emerged. One of the most notable is crowdfunding.


Books We Love: The Country Girls

I first discovered Edna O’Brien in a New Yorker article written by Emily Stokes February 26, 2018, covering her recent trip to New York City. (As distinguished from the controversial 2019 article written by Ian Parker.) 


The #TrumpCrimeFamily!

For the past year, Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani, and a number of other Republican operatives have been spreading the canard that the Bidens represent a criminal enterprise.  Seriously!  It’s time to pin the tail on the right donkey.  In fact, it’s an elephant!

Buyer Beware: Do you dare buy a Haunted House?

Would you buy a haunted house? Doors squeak open and slam shut. Sudden surges of cold air rattle windows in their old wood frames. Hazy apparitions are seen from the corner of your eye. Unexplained noises trill down the chimney. Icy wind kicks up in a conic burst, settling into strange wet spots under stairwells, in the back of closets and under the kitchen sink. Contents of drawers spill out. Your favorite things are lost, later found in strange, out-of-the-way places, and you know you didn’t put them there. In the middle of the night you do not walk alone into that dark, drafty room. 


It’s Time to Call it What it Is: “Treason”

It’s especially egregious (and punishable) when the perpetrator is the President of the United States.  He has betrayed his oath, his country, and the generations that have built it.
