Seattle Fire Battalion Chief Tamalyn Nigretto is a hero

Tonight I read an article in the Seattle Times about Seattle Fire Battalion Chief Tamalyn Nigretto and the possibility of the department holding her down on promotions. I grew up in Ballard. A friend to all at the old Station 18 and the new. As a youth, I was a huge supporter of the Last Resort Fire Department. Seattle Fire was in my blood. When I was old enough I …Read More

Navy Missile off of California – No Big Deal – Non Issue

The missile launch in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California a few days ago is no big issue. There is no conspiracy. The Navy is not conducting a mock attack on Los Angeles. There is however, a complex naval testing area called the Naval Warfare Testing Center Weapons Division at Point Mugu. In 1946, the Secretary of the Navy endorsed, and President Truman approved, the establishment of the …Read More

Is Fresh & Easy lying to its customers and employees about their closing?

Interesting chain of events over the past 24 hours including some inside information. Since Fresh & Easy opened in Nevada, over the years I became a big fan. Granted Sprouts gets the lions share of my grocery money, Fresh and Easy is next with Trader Joe’s third. Fresh n Easy is just down the street from me. They have branded products I like. I love their bread section and I …Read More

Lamar Odem could have been transported by helicopter to Las Vegas

Speaking as one who has spent over 30 years in search and rescue, with most of that time in helicopter rescue, I have an issue with the ground ambulance transportation of Lamar Odem from Nye County to a Las Vegas hospital.

Then all of a sudden, about 15 minutes ago the following was posted on his Facebok page: Wayne has left his body, passing away through the night. He always said he couldn’t wait for this next adventure to begin and had no fear of dying. Our hearts are broken, but we smile to think of …Read More

Le-Vel, a direct marketing company with a cloud-based business model

Have you ever driven through Utah on I-15 between Provo and Ogden? This is the “Red Light District” of nutritional network marketing companies. Large business campuses with overhead through the roof. Backlit logos on the sides of the buildings. Impressive! I have actually seen the inside of many of these buildings and manufacturing facilities. The sheer massive infrastructure to run these companies blows my mind. There are but a few …Read More

Zillow vs. Realtor.com and others

1) I am a consumer, sitting at home in my drawers, searching for houses. Unlike a few years ago when this search may have taken place on a Realtor’s website or by contacting a Realtor to find me a house or perhaps put me on a daily update from the MLS, I am using Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, Redfin or God knows what else to look for homes. Unless I have …Read More

Top Secret Sales Convention Held In The Open

Due to the NDS I signed, the names and the location have been changed. Imagine if you will, a major sales convention from a tech company being held at a major hotel and convention center, right in front of the other guests and nobody knows the company or the technology. The 4,000 attendees are wearing their oversize convention badges. On the badge are three things. The attendee name. A company …Read More
