Buy a coffee

I launched this blog in 1995. Since then, we have published 1603 articles. It's all free and means a lot of work in my spare time. I enjoy sharing knowledge and experiences with you.

Your support

Have you learned something new by reading, listening, or watching my content? With your help, I can spend enough time to keep publishing great content in the future.

A small slice of my data processing time each month

It's ongoing work running this site and what's really great is ongoing support. Here's a sense of what goes into this site: research topics for discussion. Manage the Tech stuff: website, SEO, graphics, email, back-end servers, DNS routing, edge servers. Create advertisements and load the campaigns in Google Ads. Manage the social media forums (Facebook, Reddit, Twitter). Write updates to the blog. Keep GitHub up-to-date.

$4.50 — A large cappuccino at my local

Things just work better with coffee! I like to take the kids to school then grab a cappuccino from my local on the way home before beginning the things that take mental energy.

$8.99 — A month of Netflix for some quiet nights in

A lot of the work on this happens after hours when I should be relaxing on the couch. Help me make it so and I promise to keep off the devices for a bit!

$11.50 — Fund a month of email delivery

This site sends out thousands of emails every month. For that volume and to ensure deliverability, I need to pay MailChimp.

$20 — Pay for one month of AWS storage fees

Websites are not free. The storage alone takes some cash. If you are willing to lighten the burden, we can keep this site up online.

$30 — One hour's pay for a graphics artist

Art doesn't create itself without a hand to guide it. I can't draw, so I need to pay others to help.

$45 — Pay a full-stack web developer for one hour

Much of the work on this site happens on weekends which means giving up time with the kids. Help me pay the developers so I can give my kids more time.

  1. If your husband is constantly withdrawn or quiet, it means he no longer feels loved or valued.

  2. Your husband is not a paycheck. So, don’t treat him like one.

  3. Sex is not just a release… but a way to connect with you on the deepest, most intimate level possible. It’s how he builds his emotional connection with you.

  4. Your husband should be a priority over your children.

  5. Don’t stop doing the things you did when you were dating just because you got married.

  6. You are not always right. And, you need to learn to admit that.

  7. When you mess-up, take accountability for it.

  8. When your husband comes to you with something and it makes you upset, don’t get defensive. And, don’t deflect what he’s saying back on to him.

  9. Constantly denying your spouse of the intimate attention that he needs, will cause him to feel rejected and unloved (and resentful).

  10. If your husband confides in you… Or, opens up about his feelings, do not judge him for it. Also, that is for no one else to know but you and him. Don’t go tell everyone and their mother about it. Furthermore, DO NOT use it against him later.

BONUS: Your husband is your teammate. Not your enemy. NewsFlash, you’re supposed to be on the same team!
