Steve, Where Have You Been?

In answer to your e-mails, I'm just working.

Sorry I haven't been keeping up Menifee 24/7 the past few weeks. But I've keeping busy in other ways.

I publish about 30 other websites, all of which earn me income through advertisers, similar to the Google ads you here on Menifee 24/7. Menifee 24/7 alone earns only a fraction of what I need to pay our bills and feed our bellies. For the most part it's community service I provide, not just purely a business. And like any business, the recession that is now officially here has hit me as hard anyone else. That forces me to work on projects that earn me more money. And that's largely what's going on with me.

I also own a rental property in Renton, WA. Not too long ago, the renters that I had moved out. Earlier in November I drove up there and spent a week cleaning up the place and doing some small fixes. Since then I've been advertising the place, and ended up listing it through HUD, and finally got a renter via Section 8. But for a couple of months, I lost that rental income.

I'm also working on some new websites. A friend of mine that I ride motorcycles with is interested in blogging about the Temecula Wine country as well as his travels around the State. So, I'm designing some websites for him.

With Thanksgiving last month, Lisa and I spent a few days cleaning up the house in preparation for guests.

And I also spent last weekend on a motorcycle trip up to the southern Sierras. I went with a couple of friends. Here are my photos, one friend's photos, and the other friend's photos.

I did attend the city council meeting of November 18, and took down some meticulous notes. But I had gotten side tracked on other projects, and several days later when I got to thinking about publishing my notes for that meeting, it seemed like old news.

I plan on being at the city council meeting tonight, and plan on getting things back on track!
