One of the best covers of this song I've ever heard.

Although this work is awesome as an orchestral piece, the sweeping vocals make this version legendary.

As we've entered a new year, I've been engaged in a thorough cleaning and gleaning, doing my taxes, crunching numbers to compile my 2014 accounting figures and putting together a financial plan and budget for 2015. I've set my mind toward a few goals for this year. One, is to put more emphasis on getting a better job. Two, to finish the novel my son and I have teamed up to do. Three, to travel more and get more out of life than I have been for the last few years. Four, to lose 5 pounds below what has been my "normal" weight.

Our novel, my first, is tentatively titled: "Nemesis: Shaped by Destiny." It is going to be a very gritty, realistic end-times book, which could be categorized as Christian fiction, but will also be able to cross-over into the secular market. It is going to have a lot of truth in it, based on over 35 years of research, and what is going on behind the scenes in this world.

We are living in dangerous times. America has found out what voting for Hope and Change has done to them. It has brought our country closer to Socialism, and the stage is being set for one-world government.

BEGINNING FRESH

Written by David Allen Rivera (2015)


As we end the year to begin anew,

Remember those things you have to do.

Never give up, never give in,

Because it’s never too late to begin again.

With baby steps, you may start small,

You may stumble and you may fall.

But persevere and continue to fight,

That is how you start the year right.

This was awesome, however, make sure that you don't send me any of the pens you dropped into the box at the end of the song. :)   Your customer service is fantastic, you're a great company, and it is really cool that you're like a large extended family. I worked for a place like that once, and I'd love to do it again.

Haha, noted ;) Those were actually mostly my pens or ones we all have around the office. No pens were harmed in the production of this vid ;) We had a lot of bubble wrap lining our giant box!! The team we have here is pretty great, and this video definitely shows that -Brian Goulet

I just have to share a very pleasant experience I had this weekend. A few days ago I found out that near where I live is a pen store. Yes, a store dedicated solely to pens. Fountain pens, rollerball pens, ballpoint pens, quill pens, as well as refills, inks, journals, seals/sealing wax and other things can be found there. For many years I have collected a few ballpoint pens (I've included a couple pictures of the pens in my collection), and just recently I discovered fountain pens and I've been doing research on them.

This store is a rare gem. It is an old-fashioned, traditional store in the mold of the many that existed in the first half of the twentieth century; and it is only fitting that it is in the heart of York's (Pennsylvania) historic district in an 1850-era structure that is write (right) beside the location where the U.S. Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation during the nine months York was the Capital of the United States (until June 27, 1778). The owner, Joan, was very accomodating, giving me plenty of guidance, so the very personal way she deals with customers is very refreshing. That is usually the case with small specialties stores like this. You don't get this kind of intimate customer service at OfficeMax or Staples.

I got a good deal on a Delta Unica (Italian-made) Fountain Pen (my special occasion, dress pen), and a Lamy Al-Star (German-made) Fountain Pen (my every day carry casual pen), which I have a pictured of here; as well as some extra ink. In addition, she put everything in a nice little bag with her business cards, a bookmark, a postcard, a thank you card and a couple sweet treats. Absolutely awesome!

I drove about 55 miles to get there, and it was a worthwhile trip; and I will be going back. If you are a lover of all types of pens, and history; and you want a unique shopping experience, then I highly recommend going to this store. I've included a couple pictures here that should give you a hint of what to expect. I was like a kid in a candy store.

Motto: "If you are pleased with us, please tell others. If you are not, please tell us."

Well, I'm telling others. There aren't too many of these types of stores around anymore; let alone one dedicated to pens. Yes...a pen store...how cool is that? We need to support stores like this that remind us of better times and an America that used to be.

Read about the pioneers of our “post-human” future and see how they're implanting technology into their bodies and brains.

This is an incredible vocal performance by Vann Johnson for one of Yanni's first non-instrumental songs.

It's about to get a lot more difficult for someone else to use your credit card. MasterCard and the biometric payment company Zwipe announced plans Friday to develop a payment card that allows you to make purchases by waving it over a payment terminal while placing your unique...
