Time, Where Did It Go?

“When they say time fly’s, they’re not kidding.”

The older I get the quicker time goes by.
Every Monday, It was back to school. I remember thinking when I was young how quick the weekend went and how I wished it was Friday again. Now at 60 years old, I wished that time stood still.

It is so Important to embrace and cherish each and every minute. It’s all about family and the memories we create along the way.


In the last year, my mother passed away and I lost my job, but I’m grateful to still be alive and healthy. I have a new way of looking at life. I try not to concentrate on things I cannot control.

I believe it’s not about the adversities that happen in life but more on how you pick your self up and continue to move forward. I believe this is how determined successful people think and look at life.

I have been blessed to find at 60 years young to have found an Industry that I love and can’t get enough of.  It’s called Internet marketing. It consumes me.

Google is always transforming, changing , undulating and shifting no different than today’s internet consumer. I love all things digital and am fascinated by the Information that the Internet provides. To me it’s like having your own private Library in your home.

People use the word Google like it’s been around for 100 years.  Google was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University, they incorporated Google as a privately held company on September 4, 1998. An initial public offering (IPO) took place on August 19, 2004, and Google moved to its new headquarters in Mountain View, California,

From Wikipedia. Alexa, a company that monitors commercial web traffic, lists Google.com as the most visited website in the world. Several other Google services also figure in the top 100 most visited websites, including YouTube and Blogger. Google is the most valuable brand in the world but has received significant criticism involving issues such as privacy concernstax avoidanceantitrustcensorship, and search neutrality. Google’s mission statement, from the outset, was “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, and its unofficial slogan was “Don’t be evil“. In October 2015, the motto was replaced in the Alphabet corporate code of conduct by the phrase “Do the right thing”.
