If You Get a Call from (206) 496-0957, DON’T ANSWER IT!

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I have had the same cell phone number for a long time.

Amazon Replaced One of My Purchased E-Books With a Different E-Book

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

A while back, I purchased Brian Tracy’s “No Excuses” on my Kindle, which looks like this: I had read it and saved it in my archives. One day I went to the archives and I noticed a book cover that I didn’t recognize. It was for another book titled “No Excuses,” which looks like this: […]
