Greetings, fellow skeptics. It is probably unfair to include all readers of this column as being like me and questioning essentially everything as either being agenda-driven, downright untrue or just plain bizarre.

You may find it hard to believe, but there are other important things to discuss.
Here we are in October and less than 30 days from the 2010 midterm elections. Two years ago, I thought it would never get here, and now I’m all a-twitter nervously awaiting the results of what I would classify as probably the most exciting election in my lifetime.
don't know about you, but I find all the news about our national debt and the debt problems in Europe quite frightening, to say the least.

Growing a business from the ground-up can be tough. We can’t all be lucky enough to win the lottery (like some HVAC companies have), but with the proper steps and work ethic, we don’t need to strike it rich. A business can be grown organically and see a fantastic level of success.
