Pay with Cash- Johnny Cash Mastercard

A perfect fit: a signature debit card for people that like to pay with cash, but want to enjoy the convenience of plastic. Johnny Cash symbolizes the hard knocks of life in his lyrics & his life. Virtually everyone qualifies for this card, since there is no credit check. You need a bank account to sign up for the card online, because you load the card with your own cash since it's a prepaid debit card, but it's accepted everywhere Visa & Mastercard are taken.
www.johnnycashmastercard.com give you the details. I'd have to think it would be a must for die hard fans as it guarantees buzz at the cash register with other fans.
I've always been intrigued with the mystique that Johnny created throughout his career. He was patently known as the man in black. His legendary shows in Folsom Prison (1968) and in San Quentin (1969) cemented him as the man of hard knocks. His rugged face that made me think he'd just got out of a bar fight added to his tough guy persona.

I doubt most people know if he ever served time in prison. He didn't. However, he did end up in jail 7 times for misdemeanors. It was more like a hotel stay since each incident only lasted one night.

Johnny made Rolling Stone's "Greatest Artist of All Time" list in 2004, Johnny ranked #31. After 50 million sold albums & an almost 50 year music career, most of his hits are familiar to every American: "Walk the Line, A Boy Named Sue, Ring of Fire," and if you didn't hear his remake of the Nine Inch Nails Song, "Hurt," I've included it below. The song sounds like it was made for him.

Grand Opening of the Cafe

It's about time I started a blog. It seems like everyone else is born with one, but I remember just a year or two ago, I had to look up the word 'blog' on the Internet. I found out it was a web/log. That helped a little, but I felt like I had to look up what a web/log was. I guess I'm just a late blogger, I mean... er, uh, bloomer.

Naming it the "Glen Woodfin Cafe" wasn't too hard since I consider coffee one of the major food groups: coffee, protein, carbs, a glass of wine & extra virgin cold pressed olive oil. Did I miss anything? I considered naming this blog the Glen Woodfin: Rants & Raves, Talking Points, Where in the World Is, the Latest Buzz, on the Edge & Diary. Okay, just kidding about the diary, since Lord knows, I don't have the discipline to keep a diary. Even Anna Nicole Smith kept a diary. Where does that leave me?

Typical topics will include, but not limited to: investing, real estate investing, entrepreneurship, mentors (gurus with products to sell), Internet marketing, motivation, how to, graphics, website design, art, politics, relationships, pets, current events, gadgets (anything that Q makes for 007), technology, computers, pets, health, nutrition, cycling, exercise, and by golly, my opinions & recommendations. The latter being the most important.

In other words, "Bem Vindo." If you don't speak Portuguese, "Welcome!"
