Troppe Informazioni Martedì numero Cento e Settanta Due (TMI #172)

1. When you sleep with someone, how much or how little contact do you like to have?

Full on contact is cool. That’s how I sleep best.

2. What do you think there is a appropriate amount of time for a divorce parent to date before introducing the kids to the “new” “special” person in their life?

Yes, about 50 years. I think this has a lot to do with the actions of my father. When my mom died he waited a bit over a year to re-marry. Don’t get me wrong, Peggy was a wonderful woman. I just wasn’t ready to move on at that point.

Dad on the other hand cannot be alone. I find that funny since I value my alone time like you wouldn’t believe.

3. Which ONE do you wish you had more of in bed… romance, experimentation or foreplay?

Experimentation. Plenty of romance and foreplay but it just gets a bit dull sometimes.

4. What do you thinks makes a kiss great?

Good contact is one of the paramaters, but a good kiss is when both you and the person you’re kissing/is kissing you tune out the world for that kiss.

5. Describe your sex life in two words.

Fucking Awesome.

Bonus (as in optional): Do you remember a time when you were having sex that you smile or even laugh about now? Do tell….

The lost condom episode. Someone slipped the condom on inside out. Ooops.

And so it begins

Today I setup my business account at the bank. Once I get the debit card for the business account I’ll setup with the Sec. State’s office for my LLC.

It’s just a computer and business consulting firm. Thus far I’ve done my contract between the company and clients, then a non-disclosure/exclusivity contract between the company and consultants. I’ve also put together an advertising plan, a five year plan and much more.

What irks me most is that the state of Rhode Island charges businesses a minimum tax of $500 per year. Used to be $250 and before that nothing. But they’re getting desperate and I can see the minimum rising to $1,000 a year sooner than later.

This brings me to my rant against the government in Rhode Island. Our legislators cannot understand that small business is the bread and butter of the state. They’ll give away tax breaks and credits to businesses that least need it, such as Bank of America, or Fidelity. At the same time they give a paltry $300,000 to R&D projects in technology and sciences.

At the current time it is very much like an inverted triangle with those least in need getting the biggest bite. I say flip it and let them take the smallest bite.

I realize that the reasons behind the breaks for those who don’t need it is because of the lobbyists. BofA and Fidelity can afford the very best. What can small business owners really afford?
