I've had a lot of help lately learning about wordpress, at lynda.com. I agree with Kindra, wordpress is perhaps the most popular, diverse and the most documented blogging utility / cms out there, I would recommend it as well. Follow…"

"I know many Millers but can't recall Lanny. I left Winfield in 2004 for Fairhope. Lost my 1st wife to cancer there then after remarrying just had to restart in a new place. Spent lots of weekends chasing Hamilton girls.
I know Winfield well.

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I'm 49 years old, owned a mini storage business 25 years that takes me 2-3 hours a week to operate on the blackberry. We are debt free except for the house. A few years ago I had a near fatal accident breaking many bones. I recovered and ride my bicycle 2 hours a day for physical and mental therapy. I love the beach and most outdoor things and traveling. I read a lot and read popular mechanics and love fixing things. Lost me 1st wife to cancer years ago and now remarried. I volunteered visiting Hospice patients for a while. I read your books. I suppose you get tired of this question. I feel like there is something I need to do to give back. I would love to make money doing it also. I'm trying my best to answer the question "What's my calling, purpose, my whatever?
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I'm a Newbie here but as I was just downloading the free book offer here I saw your question and thought I'd share this idea for your wife. I know that there are tons of people in need of a Private Nurse who can do home visits maybe your wife can start that kind of business. Also if she is into Natural Herbal Remedies that will be and excellent assistantance to what she already knows. Hope something works out. All the Best. Star Pratt
