Print-on-Demand Means Profit$ for Entrepreneurs

Print-on-demand has made a new niche of home business owners. Creating products on their computers with little to no cost and no inventory. Companies like Zazzle and Cafe Press make it easy for entrepreneurs to slip behind a keyboard, create some products and market them to the world all with a couple clicks of a mouse. I too have become one of these entrepreneurs.

I have a digital camera, write poetry and have a creative mind. I am combining all of these these things together to carve a new niche for myself. I can market my poetry and my pictures to items from mugs, T-shirts to embroidered bags.

To see my products go here.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Yours in living life and achieving the American Dream,

The World’s Biggest Hole is Located in Russia.

The world’s biggest hole is located in Russia. It is actually a diamond mine in Eastern Siberia near the town of Mirna Mirny at 525 metres deep and a diameter of 1.25 km. Imagine sitting on the edge of that hole and looking down! Go to “Scraps of Life” to see more on this story.

Yours in interesting articles,

A Beautiful Walk in the Park

Today was a wonderful and very beautiful day in the Washington DC area today. I visited a local park today in Grennbelt, Maryland and relaxed taking the smell of freshly fallen leaves on the ground and fed one of my furry friends. I also saw a buck (at least a four-point) which was with three does while I was in the woods. The buck and the does were staring me down for a while to see what I was and if I was a threat to them. They both (buck itself and the does as a group) finally moved so that I could take a picture of them. The buck was behind the trees where I couldn’t get a clear shot of him. The does were behind some trees as well and finally came out onto the main path. It was a beautiful culmination to a relaxing day. I have several pictures to leave you with. I’ll have more pictures of other things like moss, fallen trees, bracket fungi and other forest pictures later. Enjoy. 🙂

My Furry Friend

Yours in nature and relaxation,

Take Time Out to Smell the Roses

DSC_7557, originally uploaded by josephrmays.

A beautiful picture of a brilliant red rose. You can almost smell the fragrance through the screen. I love taking photos of nature in all her beauty and splendor. This heavenly creation was designed to warm the heart of that special girl of yours or to show appreciation for Mom.

I have taken thousands of photos and will be posting more photos on Flickr and on my blogs in the future.

Thank you for taking time out to look at my photo(s) at Flickr. Please feel free to leave a comment and/or share the post with friends and family. If you have some great pictures share them with me as well by leaving a link in the comments so that I, as well as my blog visitors, can see your work.

Yours in art, nature and beauty
