Double To A Million - Step 20 - Television

How To Double Your Way To A Million In 28 Steps
DTAMP - Double To A Million Plan Blog


Recently Dick Clark passed away.  It seems lately that many of the people that were a remote part of my life, and by remote I mean television, have been signing off the air permanently.

It is a different time in ones life when the people you have loved or even been entertained by begin leaving this earthly existence.  The world slowly becomes a more lonely place.  You never really see it coming nor can you prepare for it.  It sneaks up on you slowly.  One by one they go away.

As I thought about all the famous people I grew up with that were on television it occurred to me that television, at one time or another, also provided opportunities for "fame", with a small "F" and a small "ME", for the not so famous.

In speaking with my Mom about Dick Clark's passing she told me she had been on the television show American Bandstand with Dick Clark back in the Fifties dancing her little heart out.  She can still dance circles around me, I have no idea where she gets the energy.

My wife, when she was a tiny tyke was on the "Romper Room" television show in Chicago in the Sixties and I am certain she was the best "Do-Bee" of them all. ( I have to say that because she reads this Blog.)

As for me, I had my 15 minutes or less (probably closer to several minutes) of fame being on the "Uncle Gus Show" that was on WMUR-TV in the late Sixties or early Seventies, my memory is a bit hazy as the exact decade.  Of course, I stole the show, at least in my own young mind, by catching all the whiz-rings, naming all the States on the map and winning a few other things. When I left I had a huge armload of prizes!

Uncle Gus


Recently I had another small claim to fame , although not televised. As you will recall, I accidently blew up a Lithium battery in my eye and was rushed to the emergency room by the EMTs. A friend's daughter has been training to be an EMT and during one of the training sessions they were teaching how to set up a make shift setup for flushing out eyes. They said they recently had someone have a battery explode in their eye and they were teaching the procedure they figured out during the emergency. She immediately knew who it was they were talking about. It will now be apart of official procedures. I hope they call it the "Xinfinitum Procedure". :-)

DTAMP has been moving along very slowly. Hopefully a breakthrough will come one of these days.

Hi,

Just to let you know, the link to the report is no longer working. The error message indicates that the mail list is no longer active. Thanks and I find pennies on the sidewalk every month I go walking in my neighborhood.

Thank you for letting me know about the Report link and mailing list problem. It seems the person supplying that has discontinued and another option will need to be implemented.

Hi Edo,

Things have slowed down with Doubling over the Summer and Fall. Just small coin finds here and there that I haven't had a chance to update yet on the Blog.

I have been busy working on other projects and putting out fires that seem to be springing up all over the place. DTAMP is still going on behind the scenes but nothing big yet.

Thanks for asking and I hope things are going well with you!

Take Care,
Xinfinitum

I have just recommended your site in an interview I have done for a blog about credit. Hopefully it may get you a few more visitors. I hope that things are going well.

I am afraid I have giving up on the doubling and have found that making money through writing content for peoples blogs and websites makes me quite a good wage so have been doing that instead. I really should revisit doubling soon though.

Hi Rachel,

Good to hear from you!

Thank you for the recommendation, I appreciate it.

You have to be flexible and move to where the funds will come in. Doubling can be hard to keep going with, especially when life keeps throwing curveballs at you and it takes up all your time just trying to survive.

Take Care,
