After years of setbacks and negative distractions, I have finally done something I wanted to do for a long time; publish a book of poetry. 🙂 My first venture into the publishing arena is called “God is in Control“. In it you will find poems that will uplift you and caress your soul and let you know that those troubles you’re going through will not last forever. The enemy doesn’t want you to succeed, but with God you WILL succeed.
God is in Control
I hope this book meets your expectations and helps you in some way. Share it with a friend or co-worker. We all need encouragement from time to time and this resource is the perfect solution. I appreciate any and all support you can give. This will help me get past my current situation so I can provide a better life for my daughter Ashleigh. Help me so I can help many others.
Thank you and may God bless each and every one of my readers and followers.

America Saves Week is upon us. In today’s economy, it may be hard for a lot of us to find ways to save money, but we can. There may not be a lot to spend, but you can do things like turn off the lights, turn down the thermostat or stop making repetitive trips in the car (conserve gas). These are just a few of the ways you CAN save money, but by no means all.
Visit the website (www.americasavesweek.org) and make a plan to save and stick to it so that when the next recession hits you will say “What Recession?” 🙂
My previous post contains more information on America Saves Week.
I look forward to a very prosperous year for all of us in 2009.
Yours in prosperity in 2009,
Joseph R. Mays

One of my fellow MyBlogLog members sent me his blog address in a message today. I saw the blog before, and I was already interested because I love trains. A spark made me delve a little deeper into the page. He included an extremely important and useful widget on his page. The Google Translation widget. With it, you can translate the page/post into YOUR language of choice and read the page/post as if he wrote it in your native language. I thought this was a cool feature.
A couple of weeks ago, I saw the Google translate feature after I saw a blog post from Romania. I looked it up on Google and found out how you can view blogs written in a language other than your own. Her blog is called “AndiBob’s Blog“. It has some beautiful art on the front page and is well designed. Make sure you leave both of my friends a comment on their blog.
Thanks. Have a wonderful week and I’ll be back with another special find soon.
Yours in interesting blogs,
Joseph R. Mays

Today was to be the day that digital television was to make it’s mandatory debut all across the nation. However, President Barack Obama scored another victory by requesting the transition be delayed until June 12, 2009. Millions of people would have been affected by this transition. Many homes are unprepared as they don’t have the money to buy the digital converters to interpret the digital signal into a usable signal for analog television sets. The delay allows people time to get the converters and be ready when the transition takes place on June 12, 2009.
