I've led a semi-retired lifestyle in Sarasota, Florida for more than 30 years. In late 1994 I bought a personal computer and and created the first digital "social networking" group. Within two years I enrolled over 4,000 members in more than 50 countries at $10 each, earning over $40,000. Today it is free (at EmailClub.com) and continues to get members. Most opt to remain anonymous and are never seen. Online friends are seen mutually only and profiles can be hidden, although searchable by keyword. Many who discover it appreciate and avail themselves of this unique online social group's privacy features.
When the first web-browser appeared in early 1995 I published what may have been the first online blog at my website, BigEye.com, that got attention in Newsweek Magazine of November 20, 1995.
Since aound 2005 I have spent considerable time investigating contradictions in America's main-line media "news" about "terrorists", "mass shootings", and NASA's space narratives. Around fifty years ago seven "trips to the moon and back" were pesented on network television as real news. Over a span of ten years I wrote 37 articles as a featured columnist for VeteransToday.com all of which were removed from that website in May 2017 without explanation. I've re-published on a separate website a few of those columns that probably most annoy certain individuals. The fact that they have been censored speaks for itself. If you are curious enough to read them, click this graphic and try to hang on to your sanity:
An early online marketer, I stuctured an attractive passive income for myself that gave me time to investigate and write about the more obvious hoaxes bruited by televisions' major networks. Over the years I have also written a few articles pertaining to personal financial planning, obtaining FINRA's Series-65 to enable me, as a "fiduciary" to legally critique stocks and bonds (paper "investments"). P & L objectives of financial corporations constitute a conflict of interest with savings and retirement interests of working men and women.
I miss family and friends who have departed life, especially my brother and a special lady. I greatly enjoy meeting new people and value friends I've made locally. I have been on the faculty advisory committee of Manatee Technical Instutute, a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee of WSLR Radio, a long-time member of Manasota Mensa, an active member of the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, and am a Founding and Sustaining member of WSMR, our community's outstanding classical music radio station that can be listened to anywhere in the world by clicking here.
