You know, every time I pull up to a stop light and ask the guy in the expensive car beside me if he has any grey poupon, they always look at me like I'm crazy. for all the money these buggers with expensive cars have, you think they would share their grey poupon with me.

Blonde, you look like my 25 year old nephew in your pics! You must live well and happily!

I've made money, spent it, made it again, got it ripped off, made it again, thrived for a few years, then got embezzled, made more and moved myself up the ladder of success. With all that moving back and forth, it's a humbling experience to say the least! But it makes it easier to remain humble and avoid falling into the arrogance trap.

I'm an artist. It's genetic that I should be a dumba*ss when it comes to my money, but I never waste it, and I can squeeze water out of a penny. Mostly I blow it all on art supplies and equipment. I think I have maybe seven pairs of shoes to my name. That's "7," not 207!

But I miss the limelight, the buzz, the attention and the speaking engagements. I've been on hiatus for about 3 years and it's time to get busy again.

Let's hope this year will be a happy and prosperous one without any ulcers or angina. Just stay cool, to hell with the mustard, and enjoy life while you can.

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYBODY!!!
HONK, HONK!!! LOL

oh katie honk your horn for me katie ha ha ha ha

Hi Everyone!

Thanks BQ,

And I have to agree with you too my friend! I have a 100 percent retention rate with my staff and athlet's because of it also. Good to see that we agree what comes around, goes around! How true that is, having happy employee's are more productive employee's also. I am thankful too that I do not have to do the interview process allot or constantly, as I find that such a waste of valuable time and distracts from the normal day to day business also. Take care my friend and enjoy the New Year!


Thanks Miss Haddy 39 lady,

I have not spoken to you yet ma'am. If you are new here, Welcome! If you are not new to MM, I say hello and how are you doing. I also hope you are enjoying yourself here like the rest of us do too. Happy New Year! ttyl.


Hey Bob my griend,

You could also be a turtle instead of a cat. Granted a cat has nine lives, but a turtle lives a slow life and for hundreds of years too, lol. Just another thought to ponder also.

Einstein stated this so true, "Humans are but a speck in time". Relevent to the age of the earth and it's billion's of years old, we live an average of only 70 to 80 of those years- (A Speck In Time!). Have a Happy New Year my friend. And oh yeah, when are you coming shopping with us, lol?

I like the way you think about life, it's always interesting to hear how others think and feel about things. It is to be enjoyed to it's fullest because you only have one chance at it.

Hi Everyone!

Lady Di,

Gosh, I must sound like I am speaking to English Royality when I talk to you sweetie- Lady Di, lol. Thanks for the kind words, I thought I would be ducking a right hook or upper cut from my last statement I made to my friend Bob, LMAO.


Hi BQ,

Thanks for the intelligent and well stated words also. Yes, I have to admit that I have made allot of mistakes in life along with you and probably allot of others, hopefully we have learned not to make them again. One thing I have learned though is not to step into that same bucket twice, lol. That bucket can be smelly and gushie to say the least, lol. As for the seasoned CEO, I am a slave driver with my bull whip. NO my friend, I am just teasing you with that statement, but I just had to kid around with you, it is the lil tease in me you know, still lol. Actually, I have been told that I am a good boss by several of my staff and athlets, especially around the holiday's when they know the bonuses are coming, still lol. It reverts back to my statement of treating others in the same manner as I wish to be treated, life is too short for anything else or less!


Hey Bob,

I stated to you my friend that I will make room in the rear seat of my Mercedes for you to go shopping with us in Hollywood, lol. We are to old to be riding in the trunk now a days, lol. I remember when I was in my teens and I would watch some of my friends borrow their parents Cadilliac's and Continental's to sneak a half dozen or so people in their trunks to go to the drive in movies, still lolol. Oh the memories of those days. Those old Cadilliac's and Contrntinal's had an even bigger trunk than my Mercedes does, And my Mercedes has a huge trunk to say the least, LMAO!

Well Everyone, It has finally arrived- December 31st. It is 1:00 PM in the afternoon here and New Year's Eve is fast approaching. Where has 2005 gone, it went so fast this year!

Happy & Healthy New Year's to all!!!!!

You got that right and saves you a lot of time and stress.

Yes, i can imagine your employees being very excited for Chritsmas,,,$$$$$ it goes a long way for being appreciated as a CEO when you are fair with them. Sure goes a long way when you have happy people working for you.

Katie, this is what you wrote :With all that moving back and forth, it's a humbling experience to say the least! But it makes it easier to remain humble and avoid falling into the arrogance trap.

You perfectly said it...the arrogance trap is always there to ensnare you, glad you see the daylight.

Hi Everyone!

Ok Bob my friend,

It is how one who has it perceives it as I see it. Money comes very easy to me in life, I tend to spend it the same way. I almost never ponder spending it after the fact. One thing I have learned is that you can not take it with you. Enjoy life always. If you are happy, then you have suceeded with your pleasures and goals. But, do so wisely. There is a fine line to enjoyment and foolishness. You have heard the old statement- A fool and his money are soon parted? Hindsight and foresight apply here no matter how much wealth you have. Another such instance I have experienced is the two basic types of wealth- The old fashion type, the ones who have inheritated it, and the ones who have made it on their own. I am from the latter mostly. My parents are also from the latter also. But growing up as a child, I did have more than most, but I was limited by them to learn to know the values of its power and enjoyment. A very good lesson to learn. This is a gray area that seperates those who have, and those who do not. Being humble also plays an important role here. I obtained my first million by the time I was 21 years old, then lost a good portion of it in a few years by not doing the most important issue- managing it correctly. I thank my mother for having the insight to get me to invest a good portion of it so I did not lose all of it in my young and foolish years of life. I have come to see life differently as I grow older. I can have fun, spend within my means, and share it with others who do not. being generous is a good thing, but to a point. Living in Los Angeles is a good place to experience life, here we tend to live life in the fast lane, you can be on top of the world one day and in the slums the next. And living in Los Angeles we are listed as one of the three most expensive places to live in the world. Fortunately, as I grow older, I can accumulate it faster than when I was younger and foolish. My wants in life have changed, my desires have also become less, and impulsive desires are outweighed by experience and being wiser as a result. Some people live way beyond their means in that their outflow exceeds their incomming. You can only do that for so long until the P & L sheets go from the black into the red. And we all know the results of that scenario. So my point here is to enjoy life, but do so wisely no matter how much you have obtained. And do not be arrogant, you , I nor anyone else are better than anyone else in life, it is a privilage to have it, not a status that makes one better than another. I know I will probably get a black eye for stating these facts, but I have said my views as I see it, and I am happy for who I am in either case. I am always humble, considerate, and polite to others as a way of life, no matter who they are or their up bringing in life. One thing I have definately learned is to treat others the same way as you want to be treated in life, no more or no less!


Beautifully said BlondeLightning, admire your strenght to share it and your humility to admit it, you must be a real seasoned CEO. I've done some mistakes also.

I thought you drove a Grey Jeep Cherokee?
What's poupon? I've never heard of it.

Don't you know that many people put on a show of wealth with their house and vehicles and are in debt past their ears...they are tied to making the payments on these items and can't afford to take trips or do anything else.
