Super Bowl 50Super Bowl 50 is fast approaching and will take place on February 7, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

Although it says that the game takes place in San Francisco, the stadium is actually located in Santa Clara around an hour away! (Levi’s Stadium is the home of the San Francisco 49ers.)

I find Kickstarter and other crowd-funding sites to be really interesting and a great way for innovators and creators to bring their ideas to market. However, I can’t say that I’ve backed a campaign.

A new carry-on just became the most funded luggage ever on Kickstarter, blowing away its intended funding goal. Continue reading The Most Funded Luggage Ever on Kickstarter

town for sale

Earlier in the year I wrote about a couple of options to become the owner of your own town! Sounds pretty cool and what’s more impressive than saying you own a town…
