Q: “2050 Times?  Is this some kind of ‘blog of the future’ or something?”

A: “No.”

Q: “Then where did the name come from?”

A: “The name came from my daughter, who when asked by us parents how many times it we had to tell her to do ‘XYZ’, she’d respond with ‘Twenty fifty times.’  Twenty fifty was the biggest number she knew at the time.  So there you go.”

Q: “What is this blog about?”

A: “It’s about me, my family, our odd encounters and life experiences.  It is meant to be humorous and tongue-in-cheek.  Don’t be offended.”

Q: “What is with the letter “B” in front of some business names?

A: “Companies will use automated tools to search for blog posts that are negative in nature about their business.  In the past I received a couple of messages, one from a huge corporation and one from an activist group, giving me feedback about my blog post.  Really?  So to avoid that I replace the first letter with a “B” when applicable.  This doesn’t happen all the time as it depends on the topic.”
