Let’s Focus on Focus

Posted March 31st, 2006 by Mike Cherim

I surf around the web and check out all sorts of cool sites on any given day. And gladly I report I do see a greater number of accessible, usable sites that look great — a beneficial trend. I visit some really fine websites that qualify for an A or two. Being so, you might understand when I say that it strikes me as a bit of an oddity when I see no link focus. What’s up with that? I ask myself. It’s so simple to do.

Posted March 24th, 2006 by Mike Cherim

Posted March 10th, 2006 by Mike Cherim

In my early twenties I lived in northern Italy. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I spent three years in that country and had many adventures during that time.
