Ever been to a “Flea Market”?

I miss those days when I was twelve, my father would take my younger brother and I to the San Jose Flea Market. We would walk every isle, stand to stand, eating hard candy or peeled cucumber in a cup. It was a sort of Sunday Father son outing which I cherished then, but I did not know it at the time.

Now that I am older, but no longer living in California. I miss those sunny California days of my youth and also the vast array of stands that would pop up every weekend.

Now that I live in Las Vegas, NV, I have visited and even bought a few things from the Broadacres Marketplace. Even though the name is fancy, it is still a “Flea Market” to me because it reminds me of my childhood and the assortment of color, smells, food, heritage, and memories long past. Although I do appreciate the effort that Broadacres brings to the Clark County scene, it still does not compare to the scene from back home.

So next time you pass a yard sale or an antique store, simply ask your self, “What memories can I recall, or what can I rememeber”.

Lending a Yelp-ing hand? Some think the review website should be paying you

I recently read an interesting article that has proven my thoughts about Yelp, for those of you who do use or rely on Yelp reviews for all your personal business rating. Yelp can have its positive and negative effects on local and international businesses. For the small Mom and Pop’s business, Yelp is a harmful business insight-er

I hate yelp

 because it gives the wrong impression of a business to viewers simply from one bad review.  Read this article as it will give you an insight as to why you should think about what you review.

“It’s better to…

“It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”
-Marilyn Monroe

I like this quote because it makes sense to me, if you are in a relationship that makes you unhappy then end it and be unhappy alone. This way you can be unhappy at peace rather than dealing with someone else and their drama.

“I’m selfish, i…

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”
-Marilyn Monroe

A perfect way to say what you will and what you want in order to understand who you are.
