Looking Ahead to 2013

January 1st, 2013 Comments off

2013In a few hours 2012 will be fading away and 2013 will be upon us. 2012 was a year of recovery for me after a couple of years of intense treatment. I can eat almost normally now and have not had anything major happen over the last year which is a big step for me. In looking to 2013 my hope is that I can bring some stability to my life and to my family’s lives. Life by itself is enough to deal with without being concerned for a loved one’s health.

In this new year I would like to get involved in a couple of activities that hopefully can get me out of the house. I would love to be apart of the Austin WordPress Meetup again and would love to be involved in my church again as well.  I would also like to do some money earning as well but we will have to see how things pan out.

I think if I would like to get anything out of 2013 it would be purpose. I have made it through a lot of really difficult situations in the past few years. I am still getting back on my feet but I know I went through those things for a reason. I would like to figure that reason out this next year and do something with it.

If anything, I have learned in 2012 that God can bring me through anything. I want to carry that thought into 2013 and apply it other areas in my life and help others do the same. If anything, I would like to share hope with others that may be in situations simliar to mine. Purpose and hope are powerful things, they helped to get me where I am today.

Here’s to 2012 and looking forward to 2013!

A Great Way to Practice Surfing

February 18th, 2010 Comments off

A guy I worked with out in California has come up with a product that lets you practice surfing at home.

It’s called the Goof Board.

Basically it looks like a skate board without wheels sitting on top of a ridged plastic tube. It is supposed to help learn to balance better which would ultimately make you a better surfer.

You can check it out at and/or the video below.

I Got the Facebook URL That I Wanted – Dan.Masters

June 13th, 2009 Comments off

facebook-small-logoI wasn’t planning on it but I happened to grab my computer a couple of minutes before Facebook opened up folks to get their vanity URL’s. I was able to get dan.masters and so my Facebook URL is now -

Honestly I am not sure how much good that is going to be for me but I got it none the less.

Whoo Hoo! WAMU has Been Bought by Chase

September 26th, 2008 Comments off

image So my wish has come true and the ailing Washington Mutual has been scooped up by other bank Chase (or JP Morgan Chase as they like to be called). It seems that the FDIC swooped in and shut them down and Chase bought up what was left (mostly the depositors like me).

With that my wife and I have around 15 accounts with WAMU JP Morgan Chase. Obviously we will hold on to the higher interest savings accounts that we have with WAMU and now I don’t need to open a new business account with Chase as my WAMU biz account will transfer over.

I would say that the only unfortunate things about the transition is that they say that the “systems” should be integrated by the end of next year.

Thank God B of A didn’t buy them.
