The idea of keeping a 9 – 5 job may seem impractical to individuals who are starting to succeed with their new microbusiness venture. I have always been well aware of the benefits of keeping a 9 – 5 job while owning a microbusiness, yet I did not have one when I started my first business because I was lucky enough to quickly find customers and earn enough to maintain a decent lifestyle with my wife.

As I am getting older, I have realized a 9 – 5 job suits my personality and my microbusiness ownership goals. Fortunately, I am working for an excellent company called ABRA Auto Body and Glass, and I completely identify with their vision. If you are like me and enjoy working for your company, here are five reasons you should keep your 9 – 5 job:

Cloud Wars – The Empires Strike Back:  The cloud computing wars started years ago, but, largely speaking, Amazon has been uncontested and has quietly become the dominant player in the space. In 2015, Amazon will face a multi-front war as Google will launch its assault on Amazon’s traditionally strong presence in the developer ecosystem, and Microsoft will combat Amazon in the…

All Of Samsung’s New Smart TVs Will Run Its Tizen Operating System

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

In its latest attempt to make the operating system happen, Samsung announced today that all of its smart televisions will include a Tizen-based platform in 2015.

In theory, this means that the new smart TVs will be able to sync with other Samsung devices that use Tizen, the company’s own open-source operating system. For example, they can stream content over wi-fi or connect automatically by Bluetooth. In its announcement, Samsung said its “Tizen’s compatibility with other devices establishes Samsung’s Smart TVs as the control center of any Smart Home.”

This, of course, means that Samsung will have to drum up developer interest in the OS, which was first announced in 2012, but so far as failed to emerge as a viable competitor to Android.

That hasn’t stopped Samsung rolling out products use Tizen. The decision to build Tizen into all of its smart TVs isn’t a surprise because Samsung has previously…

Frozen Frames


A door opens, a door closes;
In my mind, your pictures are frozen.

The time we’ve spent has been true.
The ups, the downs
Think of all we’ve been through.

I can still see your smile in the summer sun
I always knew I’d stay – you thought I’d run.

Frozen frames of you forever in my memory
I close my eyes – you’re all I see
I’m here to stay, it’s our destiny.

Our lives will pass like seasons
The bitter cold, summer’s demons.

The sun will rise, the sun will set
We’ll get lost, we’ll place our bets,
But it’s you I’ll never second guess.

A door opens, a door closes;
In my mind, your pictures are frozen.

The Bond Can’t Be Broken

I was stranded and alone
You came and raised me as your own
You lied for me, you’d die for me;
You’d do anything for your family.

Caught in the middle
Mother knows best
You solved every riddle
We put you to the test.

A mother by nature
Saving us from danger
The tables have turned;
It’s now our concern.

The bond can’t be broken
You were sent from above
It’s rarely spoken,
But I’m here for you, my love.

If You Could Go Back…

If you could go back,
Would you do it again?
If you could go back,
Would you change, my friend?

You may wish to live each path
While each day is pressing
Today’s the same, no aftermath
What could have been keeps you guessing

Be here today,
Disregard tomorrow
Sit down and stay;
Forget your sorrow.

You long to visit the past
You’d change this and that
Life: better by a million-fold,
But would you really be so bold?

Would it all be perfect?
Would it all work out?
Would it be worth it?
You have your doubts.

You’d still have to roll the dice
You’d still have to get it right
Life isn’t always agreeable
You must accept the unforeseeable….


The Deed Can’t Be Undone

A ramblin’ man
Gone tomorrow
With no plans

Travelling far, leaving for fun
He says goodbye to his son
One last time

Lost in the fog
His mind in a daze
Alone, he sobs

Memory fades, reality drains
Once a gifted boy
He’s now searching for his brain

Life passed him by
It can’t be undone
Like many, he’s living a lie

Wishes to go back
Look into his eyes, you see heartbreak
Deep down he owns his mistakes

What has he done?
He lost time
He lost his son.
