    Once again Jimmy reminds us just to laugh…be that at ourselves, our situation or life in general. What if these times and the so called “loss” of everything is just a universal way of saying “Roll With The Punches” and focus on what you LOVE to do, instead of what you thought you HAD to do to get ahead.

    A good article, and cetainly nothing I could disagree with, Jimmy has made a bundle and had a good time doing it. More power to him, and anyone else who can do the same, and anyone who wants me to “Share my wealth” can just kiss my gun clinging A$$!!
