The "Saturday" Customers

I've been working at my local Ford dealership for almost a year now. As with any job it has its ups and downs, but for the most part I enjoy it. While I do have a few successful side projects, such as my lawn company which serves Russell and Lee Counties in Alabama as well as Muscogee County in Georgia (yeah I just plugged myself, so what), I honestly couldn't see my self doing anything else full time for a living.

"43"


The number 43 will forever be iconic in the eyes of NASCAR’s ever-loyal fan base. Richard Petty is no doubt one of the greatest drivers to ever compete in a Winston Cup race, and I dare you to find someone who will argue that point with you. Like Dale Earnhardt Sr., another face on NASCAR’s Mount Rushmore, Petty’s son failed miserably to live up to his father’s reputation when the time came. Here in my 43rd installment on Chuck.0, I will explain to you why its successor will NOT be a letdown.

I’ve long felt that I am quickly outgrowing the limited platform that Blogger has to offer. I can’t do NEARLY as much as I’d like to with the limited amount of resources at my disposal. I’ve come to the realization that I can only grow and evolve so much until it either becomes cliché or crashes their puny server. The time has come to move on to a bigger and better platform. Therefore, I am happy to announce that ChuckJunior.com is on the way.

As for an official date, expect the new site to be up within the next year. As you all know, I am many things (automotive technician, blogger, lawn care specialist, professional pin-cushion) but web designer is not one of them. It is going to take a lot of time to get everything exactly the way I want it, but now that school is over for two more months I have a lot more free time on my hands than I had before to work on it. My ultimate goal is for the site to be more interactive than Chuck.0 could ever hope to be. My uncle’s website has come a very long way from where it was when I first started writing for him, and I really like what he’s done with it. While the new design isn’t necessarily focused on interactivity, the overall design is a major improvement from the original, and I see it as a good starting point for how I’d like mine to be laid out.
 
It’s a long work in progress, but a much needed upgrade is on the way. I really haven’t had as much free time as I’d like to have lately, but that’s all about to change. Until next time, stay winning.

Dust in the Wind


Given my abusive past, naturally you can understand why I don't take friendship lightly. Like the rest of you, I have friends who are closer to me than others, but losing a friend I rarely speak to is just as painful to me as losing one whom I talk to on a regular basis. Never once did I say I was a perfect human being. I have my flaws just like all life on God's Earth. But it seems like keeping friends these days is damn near as difficult as keeping gas in your tank - it doesn't last long and you're constantly having to refill your supply.
