Pedestrian safety

Too many people are dying on our streets and I intend to educate people on how to stop it.

I am a caring, compassionate person, that actually gives a damn if you live or die, my area of expertise is driving knowledge and pedestrians are a major factor.

In recent weeks we have had 14 deaths in the Greater Toronto Area. It needs to stop.

People, as pedestrians are not looking, and people in cars are not either.

Please go to and read in detail what I have to say.
The Vaughan Citizen newspaper has reprinted it, yesterday's (January 28 2010) paper page 8.

Thank you, the life you can save may be your own.

Networking with Twitter

In the old days a network was done by snail mail and telephone
Sometimes even the fax
Now most networking happens via electronic media
It could be standard email
Or it could be Myspace, Facebook, or Twitter
The latter is by far the quickest and most direct way
To network yourself
The more people you connect to
The more will connect back
Every connection helps your network
Just how or when is the only question
If in the case of Sarah Fisher @SarahFisher67
Trying to get Ellen @Theellenshow to the Indy 500
Using the @ellen2indy500 address
Twitter for some reason suspended @ellen2indy for
Likely overuse
However, I see no difference between this use
And David Letterman's multiple mentions of Oprah
To make her come on his show
Frankly I think @sarahfisher67 will get @ellen2indy
Because what could be more fun for @theellenshow than
Riding around the Indy at 190mph
Help @sarahfisher67 out
Tell @twitter to give @ellen2indy back
Tell @theellenshow that she should answer
She's not Danica, she owns her team, Danica only drives.
You'd be surprised how many Twitters are actually me

My take on Chris Brogan's Three Words

I am not an internet marketing self empowerment guru
Nor am I an author that sells in great quantity ... yet.
I am not a celebrity that needs to do nothing to get 1 million Twitter followers
Nor am I a news agency telling you about events.

Chris Brogan (@chrisbrogan) picked three words (his twitter in link above as well)
For his purposes, those words mean something to him.

I am John Ross Harvey, father, draftsman, writer.

Are those my three words?

Focus: Not only is it my car, it is a great method of dealing with tasks.

Commit: I've been married for 14 years, I've been writing book material for 5, and been published during last 3. I will commit to write more even if I have to be as many as 4 or 5 other people to get noticed.

Twitter: To some this is a non-sensical place full of celebs and news, but many are missing how great a network you can create, the more connections you can make to people that can help you reach your goals the better off you will be.

There they are, Focus, Commit, Twitter.

What are yours?
