Well, it has happened. I'm published.

Yes, you heard that correctly. I have just had my first article published in a real magazine. Is that too funny or what?

I am now on the staff of NAME IT! magazine- A fledgling publication here in the Baltimore area.

I am, apparently, their LIFESTYLE reporter. Whatever that's supposed to be. Actually, it can be anything that I want it to be. I have free reign here.

You cannot imagine how I felt opening up that magazine for the first time. There's even a photo of me at the top of my column. Did you get that? MY COLUMN.

They also published 3 photos, which I took to accompany the article. (I took 59 photos to begin with). The publisher was particularly impressed with the photography and suggested that I may want to do more for some of their other articles. Is he kidding or what?

Who knows where any of this may lead. In the meantime I better think of my next topic. Any suggestions?

What the hell WAS I thinking?

Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.

I think you should do an article on "Dave Mows Grass".
Or about Barbara and the great lifestyle changes FOR RETIRED FOLKS.
Or how to clean a Soft Shell Crab.
Congrats on a pretty cool Gig!

First of all I should say this is a wonderful topic. Thanks for that. But I give birth to study something around ED formerly and cant resolve what is better. As I can brood over there are a lottery of people who be familiar with about ED and its treatment. So can you humour facilitate me and publish to me what is better!!! To buy Viagra online or to buy Cialis online or to Levitra... This Canadian Pharmacy is fine for me. I unqualifiedly miss help. Apologetic for misguided subject-matter
