I am thinking of running again.
I did a half marathon about 5 years ago, I really enjoyed it, however, haven’t really run since. I have for quite a while, wanted to run with Team Diabetes. As you may know, I have had type 1 diabetes for about 5 years now, and would like to think that I was doing something to help raise money and awareness for it. In the past 6 months, I have run into two old friends, both of which were training for a marathon and half marathon. It got me thinking again! Then I read about Buzz Bishop running for Team Diabetes, and I was thinking about it even more!
Its a great feeling to run, its nice to be healthy and fit. And when I’m more active, I notice a huge improvement in my control of my diabetes. So why not?
I’m going to start slow, and get back into it. But look forward to some posts about my adventures of getting back into exercise in general and running
Y2Play Passes are now on sale for the 2010 season!
This is about a month earlier than normal. They are selling them early to get people up on the mountain for the Olympics. With the mountain being open 24/7 for the Olympics, they seem to be expecting lots of business!
The Pricing for this year are as follows:

What is Passive Income?
It is a source of income that is set up in a way where it continues to come in, with little or no work required. Something that is set up and then can be left to earn you money.
Some examples of this:
- Earnings from a business that does not require direct involvement from the owner or merchant;
- Rent from property;
- Earnings from internet advertisements on websites;
- Residual income, repeated regular income earned by a sales person, generated from the payment of a product or service, that must be renewed on a regular basis in order to continue receiving its benefits;
Recently I looked into an interesting Passive Income source. Owning Water Vending Machines. Its a water filtration system that filters on the spot. People can fill their water bottles of any size for 50 cents a gallon.
Naturally, with different locations being more productive than others, you may luck out and make more, or also the other way, not as much, however, the average income from one of these machines in $458.
Now, here’s the thing, the machines cost US $12,500. Minimum order of 10. They will, for a fee, do all the maintenance on them for you, so it could be a completely hands off business. Putting out $125,000 up front is a lot of money, but it has the potential to bring in a bit of cash. Lets say that your 10 machines average $400 a month, that’s $4,000 a month income. $48,000 a year. That’s not bad in my mind!
Now if only I had the initial money to put down.
Just found a Kitchen and Bath Store with my name in it!
Grimmett Kitchen and Bath.
Nowhere on the site does it actually say their name, but I’m assuming that because its a family business, its by some Grimmett’s!
I listen to the radio lots. I used to listen to it even more. I find it hard to listen now that I work in an atmosphere that isn’t catered towards radio playing, but still, in the car I tend to have the radio on.
Years ago, I used to work in Landscaping, working on my own, outside, with nothing but my ipod and the radio to keep me company. I ended up listening to the radio all day, every day.
The name Buzz Bishop came up in a blog post on the famous dot com pho.
Buzz Bishop came out to the first dot com pho of 2010. John Chow writes about it here.
I was intrigued to find that Buzz Bishop was a blogger too. However, what I enjoyed the most and want to shout out to is his work in raising money for diabetes. I have type 1 diabetes and have been wanting to run a marathon with team diabetes for a while now. I have done a half marathon, but have since stopped training as much. I think I will aim to start running again with the goal of eventually running with team diabetes!
Thanks Buzz Bishop!
For some time I have been into photography, I have a camera, I had one lense. I had taken a course and really enjoyed it, but never had really felt like I was using my camera enough.
In December, my wife bought me a new lense for my birthday. I 35mm 1.8 lense. Perfect for low lighting photography. One of my favorite things about photography is night time shooting and taking pictures without flashes!
My plan is to head out around the city on some evenings and capture some of the city sights. I really think that the next few months could create some great images with all the lights and displays for the Olympics in town.
I noticed that Tyler is thinking about this too! He is reviewing his past year compared to his goals at the beginning of the year.
How did you do compared to what you planned on from last year?
I have just started planning out my 2010. I am going to post my intentions and goals for 2010 and got to thinking, what are yours?
I want to take a look at your goals and invite you to reply to this post with a link to your site. I will write in the new year a speedlinking post linking to your site and your post on your goals for the new year!
As I have decided to give this blogging thing a go again, I’m slowly getting back into it. I am bringing myself slowly back up to date with the blogging world.
I was excited to see that John Chow visited my little site (and I mean little, with nothing on it:( )
And was also thinking that what other way to get back into the blogging world than going to dot com pho! And just realized that it was today! Not only did I miss it, but I also missed out on John Chow paying for everyone!
Maybe next time! haha…
A Quick Note to say:
Merry Christmas from David Grimmett dot com!
Hope you have a fantastic day!
