Ornamental Education
"Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity." Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher The degrees we list on our resumes only suggest our worth; until we are tested they are, as Aristotle says, "ornaments". However, education of an...

In remembrance of my niece Jody who passed away last night from pancreatic cancer.

Our lives are so full these days we often have too little time for those who mean so much to us.

I love you Jody, rest in peace. Uncle Bill

I've been a "Big" to two actual brother "Littles", Aaron and Bailey, in the Big Brother/Sister program for the last 7+ years. Aaron, now 20, and his good friend Evan, just had their first single become available on iTunes.

No matter what type of music you enjoy it's nice to see young people work hard, pursuing their dream, while at the same time continuing their education (Aaron is in his first year of college, Evan starts next year.) Congratulations guys!

That's a very sad photo I have a horse myself.
I've not been able to get to him as I once used to I'm hating to part with him but I'm thinking it's only fair to him that I try to find him a great home he's 16 perfect age he is not getting the attention he so deserves from me any more
He's a beauty but when you do not spend the time they do begin to look raggedy
I have no doubt that him going to the right person he will get his looks back he's still nice looking but he is absolutely drop dead when taken care of daily
I'm thinking to out him up before summer do you have horses

SELF EVIDENT IS
"A fanatic is a man who consciously over compensates a secret doubt." Aldous Huxley 20th century British author The more someone attempts to convince me of something, including that I already accept as true, the more I doubt its validity.

Story
Tagline
William Matthies is the author "The 7 Keys to Change"
Introduction
William Matthies:

I am a serial entrepreneur, for the last 25 years in my own companies, no doubt having long ago become unemployable by others.

I enjoy planning and working with companies helping them develop strategy and tactics for new, profitable growth (anyone can grow unprofitably.)

Reading is also a top pastime for me, non fiction almost exclusively, as well as my continual quest to become proficient on guitar.  

Finally, I enjoy technology, often just for the sake of having the ability to do things I have no need to do, and listening to music, regardless of type.

My son and I were shopping for an 09 GTI, which we bought at GGVW. It's not that the other VW dealers were bad, in fact, they are generally a cut above car dealers overall. But GGVW was better. No insulting sales tactics, just accurate information and service. I suspect some if not all of the negative reviews here are posted by competitive dealerships and if true, I withdraw my comment about them being better than car dealers overall.
