Lincoln Named Most Dependable Brand

Who would've thought Lincoln would top the list of "most dependable" cars? I thought for sure it would be an import. Be sure and read the whole article to find how your favorite manufacturer was rated.
Brace yourself: Lincoln has just been named the most dependable nameplate among all brands, foreign and domestic by J.D. Power and Associates in its long-term dependability study.

Lincoln, Ford's near-luxury brand, has never placed at the top of the ranking before, J.D. Power says. After Lincoln comes Jaguar, Porsche and Toyota.

The study looks at reported problem in cars after three years of ownership -- these these were all 2008 models -- and ranks them best-to-worst based on problems reported per 100 vehicles (the industry average was 151).

Overall, the study said, vehicles are more dependable than ever. And imports still have en edge, but less of one, overall in fewer problems.

North Dakota Economy Booming

It's always good news when neighboring states enjoy prosperity, we could use a dose of that right here in Minnesota. Call me crazy, but if I were a Minnesota politician, I'd be in Fargo right now picking the city fathers brains for their formula for success. But, like I said, call me crazy.
North Dakota, the state with the nation's lowest unemployment rate, capped a decade of economic prosperity with dramatic population growth in its biggest cities.

Fargo added nearly 15,000 residents to hit a record population of 105,549, the Census Bureau reported Wednesday. Its fast-growing neighbor of West Fargo added an additional 11,000 residents to reach a population of 25,830.

What’s Up With Ebay?

I agree with the author. Ebay at one time was the bomb, at least for me. Over the past few years however, I go to it only as a last resort. Not many deals on Ebay anymore.

Many of you know that I used to work at eBay, and today seemed like a good day to share some of some thoughts with you on what’s happening over there. For a long time, it was a magical place.

Newspaper Ads Drop To A 25-Year Low

Newspapers as a whole are dying, the end is near. They just couldn't or more likely, wouldn't keep up with the times. Declining ad revenues are the tip if the iceberg.

I predict five years from now, 80% of the newspapers in the United States will be completely gone,  17% teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, 2% keeping their head above water, land only 1% making a profit. If I'm not spot on, I'm close.

iPad 3 Coming This Fall?

Nope, I didn't buy i Pad 2 when it came out. Being perfectly happy with my original i Pad, and watching my pennies,  I opted to wait fully expecting i Pad 3 in a year or so. From what I read, i Pad 3 is a "must have" and so far advanced it'll make mine look a dinosaur. Maybe I won't need to wait much longer.

Is The Rock Hall Nomination Process Flawed?

Myself like so many others, are of the belief the election process in recent years is seriously flawed. The problem is not with the artists in the hall. The problem is with the nominating committee.

A few years back, I interviewed Chubby Checker. I asked the Twist King why he is not in the hall? His reply was "the system is wrong" I dismissed his comment then, I believe it now.

Single Mothers Get Little Sympathy

I've always respected  single mom's. It's a tough job, and most do it well. Looks like I'm in the minority.
In a new Pew Research Center poll of American attitudes toward changes in the structure of the American family, researchers found that Americans were least forgiving of the rise in mothers raising children without a male partner to help them.
