New Year’s Mid-Life Crisis

A new year is upon us and I offer some thoughts on what went on during the course of the previous year and what’s ahead.

Another Early Work Day

An all-new One Lone Cat that I originally filmed on Wednesday where I go in to work much earlier than usual for the holidays. Also I talk about how my plans to look into Bitcoin and other ways to support this site and unveil a popular Instagram model as this week’s Woman Crush Wednesday.

 

Good-bye, YouTube. Hello Website

One Lone Cat is back in its new home on the site. While I fill in for my folks at the Rose Quartz Stand, I talk about why I decided to post videos to the site instead of YouTube and show off the Christmas decorations in town. Oh, and Crumb gets a new bed.

Filling In at The Rose Quartz Stand

It’s been a while since I wrote a post but so far, things have been going well.

For starters, I am sort of on a break from filming my vlog series One Lone Cat because nothing’s been going on. However, I have spent my downtime uploading my back catalog videos to the site through WordPress because YouTube decided to demonetize a chunk of my videos because they were not considered “advertiser-friendly.” And content-wise, there really isn’t anything that would be considered objectionable. But as far as I’m concerned, I think it’s safe to say that I might be posting videos to the site for the foreseeable future.

After all, I gained the ability to upload videos through WordPress to the site when I upgraded back in February.

It is located across the street from Burger King in Herkimer.

The Rose Quartz Stand sells geological treasures, crystals, stones and other assorted collectibles. I worked there last Saturday from 12 to 4 and I will be there next Saturday from 12 to 5.

Painting My Front Door

My first renovation project on my house: Painting my front door.

A post shared by Tim Haines (@blackcatloner6694) on

For the last couple of weeks, I have started the renovation of my house. I started with painting the front door of my house blue. This is basically the biggest project I have taken on at this point.

Then two weeks later, I painted the other side of my door as you can see below:

And then I got the idea that I would paint my back door by the kitchen the same color:

This is something that obviously won’t be done overnight but at least it’s a start as far as getting my house in order.

And in case you haven’t seen any videos from my daily vlog series lately, I have decided to take a little break, especially since now it’s fall and nothing has been going on. So that’s why I’ve been sharing more Instagram pics on the site lately.
