About

First a little about myself.  I am an independant game programmer living on a small island attached to Vancouver Island.

I am writing a blog mainly because I have stuff inside me that wants to get out.  That would be the stuff that you read on my blog.

Why "notabandwagon"?  I like think before I do things and I don't ever want anyone to follow me without thinking about it first.  If you find something of use in what I say then that is great but it is important to me that you make up your own mind.  Don't jump on my band wagon just because it is going by.

What about Happy, Healthy, Wealthy?

My number one goal in life is to be happy and to help as many others as possible happy.  I don't mean every second.  I speak in general rules and not in absolutes.  Being healthy or wealthy and not happy both sound like a bad situation.

My number two goal in life is to be healthy.  Wealth without health again sounds like a bad situation.

Third is of course wealthy.  Wealth can be about so much more than money.

So there you have it.  The three big things in life Happy, Healthy, Wealthy in that order.

Kirk McDougall's 3 Rules of Income

These are my 3 Rules of Income.

1 - You are spending more money than you are making.  You will eventually go bankrupt if this continues.

2 - You are spending as much money as you are making.  You will be doing the same thing forever if this continues.

3 - You are spending less money than you are making.  You will eventually be wealthy if this continues.

The third rule has helped me incredibly.  The first two... not so much.

My lovely wife Angelle made us Dim Sum today.It is a bit of a tradition with us.We would always go out to have Dim Sum on the weekends.One day Angelle learned to make Dim Sum and it is now a wonderful experience that we share at home.We use many of our souvenirs from our travels.It is just not our style to leave them sitting in a display case.


We spent almost two months in Asia on our honeymoon.One day in Hong Kong we happened by a little tea shop run by a lady name Stella Wong.Stella Wong is the best sales person I have ever met.She did not try to sell us anything.Stella invited my wife to sit down and have tea.She kept filling up Angelle’s cup every time it was empty.After many cups, finally, my wife did not finish her tea and Stella quit pouring so we looked around the shop.Angelle had moved quite quickly and picked out two tea sets.I kind of liked another red tea set with the dragons so Angelle suggested we buy that one as well.It is such a n…

Quit While You are Ahead

Quit While You are Ahead / Skiers' Denial
I like to try many different things.  I guess one of my biggest fears in life is that there may be something somewhere that I have not experienced.  So in keeping with that thought I once took up skiing.  Now this story is really not about me or even that much about skiing so feel free to skip to the next paragraph.  When I did learn to ski I took lessons and practiced on small hills in the city.  It was 15 minutes up the hill and 30 seconds down.  It took a long time to get little practice.  After a while I was ready for the mountains and what I found was that it was half an hour up and half an hour down.  I learned more about skiing on my first trip down the hill in the mountains than my entire practice time in the city.  Who knew?  Well... I guess every skier except for me and the people who told me to learn how to ski in the city.

Many skiers I talked to told me stories and one of the common threads was the one where they had a skiing a…
