Was a little disappointed to see Indiana in the list of 15 states that did not contribute enough. (20160826) I stand corrected Indiana is one of 15 states that do contribute enough to their pension funds. I misread it originally.

http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/24/retirement/state-pension-shortfall/index.html?iid=SF_River
Just 15 states are paying enough into their public pension funds to both pay promised benefits to retirees and pay down pension debt.

I dont even know what to say to this, why would a wedding even be a target, unless the intended getting married, was higher up in the ranks of any given militant group....or I guess someone that was in attendence was directly associated to a militant group.....Hmmmmm never mind, just answered my own question; http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-37146531 Regardless I believe "Barbaric"was an appropriate choice of words.
An explosion at an outdoor wedding party in the southern Turkish city of Gaziantep kills at least 30 people and injures 94 more, the region's governor says.

Cars are big things. You wouldn't think they would get lost, but they do. The Zus - Smart Car Locator and USB Charger will stop this from happening. It will let you charge two devices at once and it will also let you find your car when you lose it. You can use this with any 5v device tha

Ill be honest. I have never been a large proponent of 401k Plans. They simply do not offer the level of investment assets that are or would be beneficial to the employee. That is why I found this article particularly interesting; http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/19/retirement/morgan-stanley-401k-lawsuit/index.html?iid=hp-stack-dom
Morgan Stanley was hit with a class action lawsuit Friday, filed on behalf of 60,000 workers. It claims that the company mismanaged their retirement plans by offering poorly performing funds and charging excessive fees.

Introduction
One early morning, in the year 2010, I found myself restless, tossing, and turning.  As so many nights before and some many nights since, my subconscious slowly churned and bled provocative connotations into the conscious realms.   Fragmentation's followed by re-categorizations, and logical constructs, ensued, within this restless state.  An abrupt contextual construct, an epiphany tantalized the nightly regime, and presented its persistent nature to the foreground.  Several bouts of the subconscious to conscious interactions persisted.  The body's unwillingness to prevail quickly folded.  I was returned to the physical realm, jerked into an upright position. Confusion and uncertainty was my mental state.  As I surveyed the master bedroom my visual perception was merely a haze.   The clock elusively walked down its winding path, Slowly rubbing away the morning fog, I turned and stared at its large glaring, blocky, and intrusive characters; 2:30 am.  What seemed elusive was now perceived at great distances.  Verbal and auditorial faculties switched to an on state.  Softly my mouth moved and verbalized the following;

"The ever inquisitive, ever intrigued, ever engrossed in the meanderings we perceive, ever indulged in the simplistic and complex, if only to comprehend, if only to reflect."

At first I was uncertain as to what I had stated.  It sounded fragmented, at best.  In my half wakened state I performed what has become autonomic, I wrote it down and went back to sleep, believing I would somehow make sense of it later.  Imagine my delight as I had awakened hours later.  While sipping my morning's first cup of coffee, I sat and analyzed this rampant scribbling, this abrupt and violent construct.  I found myself smiling, I found myself delighted with what I now perceive as a contextual gift from the subconscious realms.  I found myself presented with a construct that undoubtedly depicts who I am and who I continuously strive to be, a construct that invariably summarizes my character, my state of existence, within this mortal coil.

So how, pre'tell, does this invasive albeit imaginative construct pertain to my life?  

Since the age of 8, my creative gestures, my imaginative aptitudes have consumed me.  Most if not all current hobbies encompass such behavioral aspects; whether it be drawing, oil painting, mixed mediums, reading, and or writing.  My imaginative aptitude sometimes stems from the unknown, may be perceived as a genetic disposition, or devised from the inane art of practice.  All can be attributed to a childhood muse, a woman who continuously encouraged me to strive for success, to learn from personal mistakes, and accept defeat for that is how we truly learn and grow.  What a wonderful grandmother she was; Doris Louis Johnson(Parks).  No formal training or higher education has either been achieved or received; however has been a long term goal.  An attempt to rationalize, hypothesize, and or logically categorize is likely fore not.  The only true answer, the only honest answer is simple.  It is my first love, my first passion, a world I can readily turn to when I do not understand the world about.  A realm that is mine to manifest, create, and mold into whatever I deem most appropriate.  It provides solice, serenity, and blissful solitude when none can be found.  This my dear reader is how this invasive contextual construct applies to my life.  My subconscious has awoken my inner-child.  To personally roam this mortal coil without, would be fruitless, costly, and mentally taxing.

My attempt at creating an online presence is quite simple; to capture an active and interested audience.  In essence, to provide a time-line or lineage of my personal creativity.  Long term I hope to build a vibrant and beautiful platform, one that will inspire others to seek the imaginative, to seek the creative; if only to enjoy the talents I treasure so dearly.

If you wish to contact me for known resources, knowledge sharing, general information, or to simply speak of the artistic realms, simply email me at edmundhaley@gmail.com.  If you wish to speak of a commissioned piece, please also contact me via personal email with the following subject line;  "Request Commissioned Piece" or "EverInquisitive ~ Inquiry".  In the matter of cost or price.  I do not have a set scale.  Such depends upon the complexity, materials, and time required to successfully produce a given piece.  Hopefully you will understand.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.  I look forward to speaking with you.

I enjoy Starbucks and occasionally treat myself either on the weekend or in the evening with a good book. Unfortunately I have not had much success with this particular store. There is an older woman that works the register who consistently short changes me. Today was the seventh time she has done this, over the course of two years. Now some might think oh, well 7 times out of two years; however I will divulge I probably have been in there a total of 7 times in those two years. I dont frequent the store as often as others. Needless to say, the third time it happened I brought it to her attention and she looked at my like I was clueless and initially stated that she did not; however I was rather insistent and showed her not only the change but the ticket as well. She reluctantly gave me the remaining change. The irritating thing is she has been doing this now for at least two years. I am certain I am not the only one who is experiencing this and it makes me wonder who else she has taken advantage of. This store needs to either speak to this woman or let her go. Stealing from customers is probably the poorest level of customer service possible. She is not doing the store any favors. Today is the last day I will visit. I wont be shortchanged again.

I find it unfortunate that I am having to write a poor review for Bethany Geyman. For the past 10 months the Bethany Geyman office could not find a way to work with my insurance company to process a claim. The fault lies both at the Insurance Company and at Bethany Geymans Office. The level of incompetence on both sides forced me to get involved and resolve the matter. When I finally knew what was going one I reacted immediately. Unfortunately it was not quick enough. I just received notice that the Bethany Geyman Office has returned the insurance check because they have already turned me into collections. All I have to say is, Ridiculous ladies and gentlemen. I will not be going back .

Not certain what to say here. Just traded in a extremely good vehicle for something a little more manageable on the pocket book; unfortunately has worked against me. Drove the new car off their lot and it was fine for a total of 5 days. Now the engine is dead and I am already having to take it to a mechanic to see what is going on. I fear I have traded in for a lemon. Will keep you updated as I figure out what is going on.

Late last Winter I found myself renting a another storage unit. The operating manager, Darnell, was professional, was considerate, was quite intelligent about the business process, and he is rather friendly and has a terrific sense of humor which made for good conversation.. I would highly recommend Darnell's Public Storage Location to anyone needing extra storage space.

I found myself on a Sunday and in dire need of a hair cut. Unfortunately the Salon I normally go to is closed on Sundays and well I am finding most seem to be closed on Sundays now. Needles to say, I say this Great Clips open and decided to drop by. I was able to walk in, sit down immediately, and had pleasant conversation with a stylist by the name of Marlena. She did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend her. I believe I have found a new stylist that has flexible hours. Stop on by ladies and gentlemen, they do a great job and are in a great location.

06/25/2014 - What I thought was the last straw Once again Ladies and Gentlemen the Saga Continues. The rental industry really has taken it to a whole new level. A year later ladies and gentlemen Willow Lake Apartments continues to haunt me and condone poor managerial practices. They are continuing to practice the art of defamation. Yes ladies and gentlemen, they are suggesting that I am not a viable tenant to other Apartment Complexes by suggesting that I was evicted from Willow Lake Apartments; which is furthest from the truth for I have hard-copies, documented proof that contradicts otherwise. Be extremely weary of renting from these crooks. They are not worth your time and precious money. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 06/15/2013 ~ Last Straw Well the saga continues ladies and gentlemen. In the course of 1 year and 8 months I can honest suggest this apartment complex is not worth the hefty rental price I pay each month. The grounds and landscaping has drastically deteriorated due to improper management. Several trees have been cut down due to such improper maintenance. I still have loose bathroom floor tiles that have yet to be fixed, since the first day of rental. I am finding other apartment complexes offering more competitive monthly rental rates with better grounds, for the same square footage. My personal advice don't rent from Willow Lakes Apartments or any affiliate of NTS Development Company. They are overpriced and any rental lease signed comes with a hefty price and ridiculous fees. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First Day ~ Its rather disparaging that I am... already having to write a review about an apartment complex. I recently signed a lease with Willow Lake Apartments with a move in date of Friday, October 7th, 2011. I have a rather extensive review process of how I research apartment complexes, whether I deem them appropriate living conditions, what type of neighborhood the complex resides in, et cetera. Willow Lake Apartments met all criteria and prior to signing the lease I was quite impressed. I worked all weekend, with the assistance of friends to load the moving truck in order to move in this morning, October 9th, 2011. Now as anyone who has moved before one would most likely back up the moving vehicle as close to the complex as possible, especially if you live on the second floor. I have been renting for more than 20 years and on moving day this has always been a welcomed OR acceptable practice. Unfortunately that was not the events that transpired this morning, at 10:00am. No sooner had I left the cab of the moving truck, one of the on-site staff had stormed over and proceeded to barate NOT ONLY myself but my friends, for parking so close to the building and strongly advised that I park further away from the building. After having done such she proceeded to storm back to what myself and my friends had perceived as her friends. Having not even spent a single night in this new complex I already feel discouraged and rather irritated with the unprofessional manner and lack of common etiquette this staff member portrayed. If I recall I am the customer. With being a customer you would hope for some level of professional courtesy or etiquette; especially given their monthly rates. A complaint has been filed with the Regional Manager and I have been reassured that this type of unprofessional behavior will not occur again.

I have been going to Ted's for some time now; however have never written a review for them. I know, not very polite of me. Regardless I stopped into my favorite steak house, after work, Friday last, and had the most pleasant experience. After a long work week, I wanted to try something different, try something new. Perusing the menu, I found what I felt was something new; the 14oz Delmonico, with a baked Sweet Potato, and asparagus. Upon making such a new selection, there was a choice of buffalo or beef. I chose buffalo and believe me, I do not think I will choose anything else from now on. It was the most exquisite, tender, succulent piece of ribyeye I believe I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend such a selection. I should also suggest Ted's ambiance is just as fair as its menu. Its employees are extremely friendly and attentive. It makes a great place to take a date, meet for drinks, or to simply treat yourself.
