Amicus curiae & Cicero

Interesting Street names for our previous custom built Cooper Mtn Home 1974-1988
home of 5 acres on top of Cooper Mountain, now developed to Renaissance Point.

We hand Dug that pool and had our friends come over to raise the sides and fill it with water. It was the second in ground hand dug pool our family worked together on. It was worth every shovel, but this is the bright side up.

Interview Like Your Dating?

Maybe. If you are at all finally getting the jest of why you may or may not be getting the jobs you are interviewing for, I find job searching is much like dating.

The tag “can’t live without it” has been on my mind recently after a few interviews. As an applicant, the employers have such intriguing qualities I want in my work environment. But, how do I woo them into hiring me and get what I need?

In dating, people are attracted to each other for all kinds of possibilities, just like an employer. Life, work, love is a concentric hub zone of people. When you find the right place, all the past obsessing comes to a close.

For men and women life is emotional, we all, on some level, sense chemistry. How we approach the “goodness of fit” or “badness”, that “right” gut instinct, the opposite of when abandon kicks in and just go with it. The abandon is the gut that didn’t listen or wasn’t paying attention.

The saying, “there are two sides to every story” is so apt. How you feel, how they feel, it all works, it’s all good until someone gets hurt. That agh of rejection, demoralizing, fragility. In love we have the Choice to say ya or nay.

Unlike dating, employment isn’t left with a choice to turn an opportunity down. But, when abandon pans out, it is all good.

Interviewing, like dating, references all the courtship like similarities. Checking out background, credentials, social connections, the buzz, only on a higher technical level. As recruiters try to pair up individuals, the social amortization affords a small window to the whole person. So, you look good on paper, they bring you in, your polished, sincere, evident, and the hiring manager wants to meet you.

The key like in a good relationship, is be honest. Start out with a great attitude, :-0) “gratitude”.

If anyone says life is perfect I hope I get to meet them someday, because that is not the norm and there will never be perfect, but an ideal can come pretty darn close. Why should we be penalized for breaking up with someone that wasn’t a good fit? To acknowledge the disconnect is better than arguing it was perfect. Move on. Hopefully the next “date” will have all the fan fare well deserved and you will make them feel unforgettable

When I did date, I loved putting on my best for “that guy”. There were butterflies and it all seemed so much fun. You know the one, the guy who takes all his dates to the same restaurant and the concierge gives the nod, because family is too close to the table for a rationale deduction of character in the early stages of a relationship. You got the nod because you treated them with respect and appreciation. It’s all about how you would treat a stranger in any situation, that shows good character. Kindness is a quality that will take you far and wide.

If you can get that feeling back professionally courting an employer, the best is yet to come.

The Irony in Words

Filed under: Uncategorized — crystalclearsolutions @ 2:43 am

I was just looking up the word boondoggle,

A boondoggle is a project that is considered a useless waste of both time and money, yet is often continued due to extraneous policy motivations.”

Then I see below that it is also associated with the “bolo” worn by Boy Scouts.  How ironic that much good work, by such young men, represented by their uniform “necktie” is considered useless and unproductive.  I hope they stop using “boondoggle” to associate that particular garment piece.   

Perhaps the item itself seems useless to the eye, but to the imagination it reams character, resilience, protocol, function, habit, utility and all that a great Scouts have in store for them.  

When you think of the uses this “useless” garment has, we can jump into the realm of

MacGyver – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

MacGyver is an American action-adventure television series created by Lee David Zlotoff. Henry Winkler and John Rich were the executive producers.

I Loved that show!! I know he would use the bolo to scale a zip line, apply a tourniquet, and a gazillion more uses.  How would you use a boonedoggle?

There Is No Such Thing As Privacy Anymore

Filed under: Uncategorized — crystalclearsolutions @ 9:53 pm

The media mongers have no respect, for themselves, of anything precious in the world, and least of all themselves.


In this day in age, there is no longer privacy anymore. The reason why I bring this up today, is that because of what happened to Duchess of Cambridge Kate and William. They were just enjoying their time together in a remote area where they were just relaxing, and the press takes shots of Kate topless. I mean where do we draw the line? Celebrities and Royal Family is entitled to their privacy too. Even with Prince Harry in Vegas. I mean leave them alone, they are entitled to have fun too and do what they like too. The media always has so much time on their hands that they want to cover news like this all the time. It shouldn’t happen. Peoples privacy is at stake. It is not cool to invade someones privacy. You always here, oh this celebrity is vacationing off this island, or this celebrity is…

Shame on Chase and Living Social! Why ‘Mission: Small Business’ is hurting small businesses more than helping them

Filed under: Uncategorized — crystalclearsolutions @ 5:16 pm

You nailed Shelly! Big sibling taking advantage of little sibling. Nice data mining technique beguiled. You did the math. Now, all those folks need to quickly disallow Chase into their profile information. While also remembering, not only should you be a frugal savvy shopper, but now you must be a well informed game player of social media.The one web site that comes to mind where small business are raising cash for their projects is on and does NOT “appear” backed by big business disguised, it is run by Fans contributing. I see one project raising 115k already. That’s worth the effort for posting your project. 250k is a mouth watering temptation, but now new small business might be more aware of what “lies” beneath the offer. Good Luck and Best Wishes to All.Good article and thank you.

May a 1000 BTU’s Light Your Way

Filed under: Uncategorized — crystalclearsolutions @ 6:45 pm

Smothering the light extinguishes the illumination.  “One if by land, and two if by sea” signal.  May those who are aware of thier light not let those who are in the dark extinguish their flame.  Limitation is a state of mind.
