San Marcos Climbing Wall

MYHB acted as belayer for his son yesterday at the Solid Rock Gym in San Marcos.

We are still feeling the effects of Comic-Con, so after the climbing I asked an
employee for a picture to post here. I would enjoy this very much if MYHB were
in better shape. Still, belaying has some enjoyment to it.

Bob Knows How To Do A Mission!

This morning I will allow MYHB, Charles (Charlie) Hicks-Moore, to do a guest post.

Recently Tweet Geist Guy and I have been exploring and I know I speak for both of us when I say that I highly recommend it for networking.

I will explain more about it soon, but it is also a game, and part of that game is using the Empire Avenue currency to invest in each other. Empire Avenue’s currency is called Eaves. With the right methods you can emulate Tweet Geist Guy’s performance or come close. He turned 100,000 Eaves into 1 MILLION Eaves in just over 82 hours. Having those extra Eaves allowed him to invest in over 1000 people and helped him earn more Eaves faster to continue.

Around 11 am Pacific today I will start making phone contact with some of the connections. Around that same time Tweet Geist Guy’s 14th day on the site will begin.

Another way to earn Eaves is to do missions and I believe that you will come to the same conclusion we did after doing 40 or 50 missions:

Make them simple and pay us well.

Mission Preferences:

~ 5000 Eaves Minimum

~ Simple & Concise

Below is a great example and I will provide more examples in the future. I won’t necessarily be providing bad examples. We will simply stop doing those missions.

This mission was so easy! Click like on Facebook and receive 5000 Eaves! (I suggest signing up for Empire Avenue & then doing this mission if it’s still active. If you simply click on the Facebook page and then join Empire Avenue you won’t get credit, but you need to act fast!)

Keeping with the theme of simple and concise, here’s what the mission said:

5000e For a Little FB Love
The Details…
Rock and Roll Tuesday, Have a Great One!

Give the Bear Some Love Please..

Great job, Bob! Thank You!

Here’s Bob’s Empire Avenue profile:

Tweet Geist Guy’s profile:

Do Not Be Discouraged If The Price Of Your Shares Goes Down (At The End Of A Particular Day) At Some Point. It Happens To Everyone.

As Of This Moment It Hasn’t Happened To Tweet Geist Guy, But It Will At Some Point. It’s Inevitable For Everyone.

You can learn how to win this game and become a more successful networker and in doing that, increase your income and your prospects and the same can happen for those around you.

If you’re still trying to figure this out, I will soon have an email newsletter that you can subscribe to that gives tips and more! When there is enough interest I will start sending text messages as well.

What an excellent Saturday!

MYHB let me take control more often today.

We took quite a few pictures of humans in attendance in San Diego.

Hello Humans!

MYHB Took Me To Comic-Con Along With His Son The Last Two Days. Tomorrow it will be MYHB & I alone.

Today he and I both got an autograph from Bill Plympton.

Tomorrow I will post some pictures.

His human body is tired and he needs to get sleep if we are going to get there in time to get in line for the Game of Thrones panel.

He is very excited and can’t believe after two days that there are still three left!

I have enjoyed very much the sea of humanity I’ve experienced at the San Diego Comic-Con.

It is lonely in space and all those humans, female and otherwise, are a welcome sight!

Here is my Twitter –


Attention, Humans!

Now that I have been active on Twitter since 11/2012 I have enough followers (10K+) to perhaps justify a blog.

First, I wish to thank Charles Hicks-Moore, My Human Buddy, for allowing me to communicate through him.

In the beginning he obviously had no choice, but now we have worked out any differences and he chooses to allow me to remain in his brain.

To be fair, the situation is somewhat analogous to a Far Side Cartoon which is one of Charlie’s (referred to as MYHB from now on) favorites.  Although I have searched extensively the exact cartoon has not been found.

Picture a “mountain man” (I believe this is the correct term) explaining to his friend about the bear that is quite at home in his cabin.  At the end of one of the man’s arms is a hook in place of a hand and he says to his visitor something similar to this:

“She’s been with me for years.  Of course, we had to get some things straight between us.  She doesn’t follow me into town anymore and I don’t try to take her food bowl away before she’s done.”

Also of note is the social networking site, Empire Avenue, which I joined just over 48 hours ago.

I urge all who have even the slightest interest in social networking to join and become active.

After starting with 100K of the Empire Avenue’s “currency” I have 780K 2 days later.
There are 226 shareholders who have bought my “stock”.
From a starting point of 10 a share my stock is currently over 48.

The experience on Empire Avenue so far has been the tipping point in starting my own blog.

Happy Saturday!
