A few months ago I discovered the Amazon Warehouse, a section of the Amazon.com website for open box and slightly used items. Amazon does not generally include products from its warehouse in the general search results from it homepage. So, how do you find Amazon Warehouse Deals? The easiest way is to simply bookmark this link - Amazon Warehouse. As an Amazon Prime member, I do most of my online shopping at Amazon. What I love about the Amazon Warehouse is that I still get my Amazon Prime free shipping. Also, if I am unhappy with a purchase, I can... Read more →

by Robert G. Yetman, Jr., Managing Editor, The James L. Paris Report At what point would my insistence that I’m a cat, as opposed to a human being, be deemed as lunacy, rather than a rational position on social and personal identity? Would the sight of me uttering only “meows,” cleaning myself with my tongue, using a litter box, sharpening my fingernails on a tree, and running around on all fours chasing mice…prompt you to immediately call 911 to say you’ve stumbled upon a straight-up lunatic…or would you instead wrap your intellect, including your powers of reason, inside the cloaks...

One of the great things about Amazon is that it has EVERYTHING. This is also Amazon's biggest weakness as well. Many times people will find a site like Amazon more than a little overwhelming. If you are looking for a specific item, the large number of choices can make the process very confusing and time consuming. An additional problem for Amazon is that a niche site can easily rank higher in a given category in a search. For example, while Amazon does sell hammers, it would be much easier for a website that exclusively sold hammers to achieve a higher... Read more →


I am always on the lookout for unique opportunities, especially those that can represent a great part time income. There is a lady in my small town that does very well managing social media for a number of the local businesses. I have been looking around trying to find a good course on this topic that I can recommend. PaidSocialMediaJobs is a very interesting program. They even have a news segment from a local TV channel discussing the opportunity. Businesses owners understand that getting new customers today is no longer about buying an ad in the Yellow Pages, but having... Read more →

I have been a concealed weapons permit holder in Florida for several years. I grew up around firearms, and learned at a very young age about gun safety and how to discharge a weapon.

My parents bought me my first shotgun when I was just eleven years old. I still have that single shot 20 gauge to this day. As many of our regular readers know, I am a huge proponent of...

I just turned 50 and became eligible to join AARP. Yes, I am aware that they support a lot of liberal causes. For $16 I purchased a one year membership that covers both my wife and I. Why? Well, I love discounts, and AARP may be one of the very best groups to join for this purpose (and it is my only reason). Just as one example, the AAA discount at Denny's is 10%, but AARP offers 15%. AARP discounts are really quite amazing when you start to look at what's available. Another example is Outback Steakhouse, which offers a... Read more →
