So, 2015 Sure Started Out Weird…

I’m not sure I even know where to begin… I was asleep when the ball dropped – woke up when the kids all called for rides home at the same time. It took me three trips, and I drive a mini-van. That’s a lot of drunken 20-somethings… That old saw about “how you ring in […]

Budget Is a Bad Word…

Posted by Les Becker on October 26, 2014 in Debt Elimination, Penny-Wise, Prepaid Living |

Nobody likes that word. Budgets hurt. They’re limiting. They make us feel poor. They’re necessary. If you’re in debt right now, the reason you are is that you didn’t write a budget BEFORE you started cranking up those credit card balances. If you’re in debt, and don’t have a clue how to start getting out […]

Summer Daydream

Ky’s finally sleeping again, and is back to school for her morning classes, which is good.

Birds on a Wire

In the movie, “Blow”, George’s dad tells him that money isn’t real. “It doesn’t matter, Georgie…” My dad would have disagreed with that one. I sure as hell disagree with that one. I am about to embark on a legal battle of epic proportions. Well… Epic for me. The Sire has gone AWOL. That still […]

Sometimes, Wishing is Enough…

Hello World!

Posted by Les Becker on April 15, 2008 in J.O.B., Real Life, School, Wasted Time... |

Okay, it’s just been so damned long since I’ve posted that it feels like a brand new blog. And what you see above is pretty much what everything that I’ve been up to to keep me from blogging boils down to (Holy ol’ shit, but that’s a lot of “to”s!). In other words: a whole […]

So, Is India the New World Power, Now?!

Posted by Les Becker on January 29, 2008 in J.O.B., School, Wasted Time... |

Lost in Translation? Okay, I’m having trouble following… I’m unemployed. The last thing I want is to have to go back to retail. Well, no, actually, the last thing I want is to have to go back to a call center – but retail is pretty freaking close behind… I just went back to school […]
