About AtVins

Personal Blog is a personal blog that I have decided to create after long contemplation. Many of my friends and family have encouraged me to write a book over the years, as I have been fortunate enough to have had a lot of interesting experiences and learn a lot of things, mostly in part to surrounding myself with interesting and knowledgable people (which is another post all together). Anyway, despite everybody doing it, in order to stay with the times, I decided that writing a blog may be a better idea. As I let life change and adapt while time rolls along, as it sees fit, it seems to make better sense to share it as it’s happening. When when it becomes boring, I can periodically reach back and pull up plenty of stories, tales and anecdotes that will surely entertain and hopefully even educate somebody somewhere at sometime reading my personal blog.

If you’ve read this much of my personal blog, then it’s probably time for you to learn a little about who I am. Here is a third person perspective:

Vincent L. Jacques is a Professional Engineer in the Environmental Engineering Field, an entrepreneur, business owner, writer, photographer, angler, gardener, wine connoisseur, investor, philatelist, domainer, web-site developer, collector, diver, leader, husband and dad. Vincent has started and sold several different businesses over the years such as Kenyon Environmental Inc., New England Geotech, Alternative Technologies, Kinetic Capital Management and AvoidLines, and has had presence on the internet as early as 1993, when domain names were actually free. Boy, I missed the boat there, although that’s another great story I’ll tell in a future post. I don’t do well with that third party perspective stuff, but I like telling stories. Visit my personal blog often…You’ll be glad you did!

I currently serve as the New England Regional Manager for a large national environmental firm, which occupies approximately 60 hours of my time in any given week. As there are actually 168 hours in any given week, that leaves my plenty of time to do all of the other stuff I do, including this blog. As you’ll learn, I’m big fan of many artists and all kinds of music. One of my favorite songs is from Warren Zevon, “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead”. Life is very short folks and you really are only here for a very small amount of time in the grand scheme of things. Therefore, why are sitting here reading this? Get up, get out and Live! Just kidding. Poke around my personal blog first, then get up and go! Just kidding again.

Besides my personal blog, my latest business launches include FOAMPIX and Vin’s Domains. Both are new and while both are still evolving, they have each already had some great success.

Instead of playing X-box at night after work, I decided to spend some time on-line in the right places. I was able to learn how to develop my own websites very soon I was using what I had learned and started developing and monetizing some domain names. While I won’t retire anytime soon, I have developed a residual income, which is always a nice thing. Keep in mind, that all of these were created very recently with domain names I bought before I knew what I was doing and are all still being worked-on. Nonetheless, some interesting websites currently managed by Vins Domain’s include the following:

Mixed Drinks Weekly

Mixed Drinks Weekly Now as this site just launched, we hope you will bookmark us and check back often to see the various mixed drinks that you can experiment with on a weekly basis. Our goal is to publish a new article every week featuring a group of mixed drinks or a specific mixed drinks recipe that you can make and help yourself unwind, responsibly of course! A mixed drink is defined as a beverage in which two or more ingredients are mixed, with some containing liquor, creating alcoholic beverages, while others are non-alcoholic.
Interestingly enough, a cocktail is defined as a mixed drink that is typically made with a distilled beverage (i.e. vodka, gin, whiskey, tequila and/or rum) that is mixed with other ingredients. Now, as you may be aware, you can have the same drink in two different places and the drink can actually be quite different. This is because individual bar tenders typically add their own twist to a particular mixed drinks recipe, which causes variations from bartender to bartender and region to region.
There are so many different cocktails in the world and typically contain one or more types of liqueur, juices, fruits, sauces, milk, cream, honey, spices and various other flavorings. As such, it is unlikely that we will ever run out of mixed drinks recipes to share with you all.

Underweight A website devoted to educating the masses about being underweight. Hate being lean and thin? I can understand how you would. Everyone thinks you’re unhealthy, it can really affect your self image. Not only that, there are various health problems as a result of being underweight. Underweight is a fairly generic term, which can mean different things to different people, but there can be no denying the fact that being underweight is not a healthy weight range to be at, and something should be done about it.

One Direction

One Direction Love Created this one for my daughter, but it is getting popular. If you haven’t yet heard of the boy band sweeping the world, you obviously do not have a 10-13 year old daughter. Just kidding. In any event, one Direction is quite popular, with 3,350,000 [exact] global monthly searches!!!

Page Rank

PageRankImprovement – Search engines love constancy and that is THE feature they seek in domain names. They believe that a website only becomes trustworthy if it has been around for a long time. Google’s little bots analyze each individual page related to a domain name or website. The quality that ranks the highest is the exact age of the web “page” being evaluated. On the other hand, the age of the domain name is equally important. So, seriously think about purchasing an older domain name if you’re going to begin a new project. Even more seriously, think about rebuilding the old pages that existed long ago. You can get a lot more information on how to rank highly on popular search engines by checking out this site!

Okay, I’ve many more websites, buy that’s not what’s this personal blog is about. This personal blog is supposed to be about me. Now that you’ve read all of this and have explored some of my websites, you may have a little taste of what I’m all about. Not really. As can be seen by the pages I’ve created, this personal blog will be mostly about my hobbies, interests, lessons learned and of course close encounters. Would you believe I own a naughty corkscrew collection, baseball card collection, stamp collection and post card collection? Did you know I’m in a wine club, Vino Rosso, meeting at least once per month since 1997? Did you know I’ got to see exactly 150 Grateful Dead concerts back in the day, and I still have the tickets for the next six nights they never got to play? I’m sure you didn’t know I’m a certified PADI scuba diver or that I made a quick $10,000+ last year on Ebay selling “stuff”? Better yet, how about the fact that I’m currently working on a children’s educational app that will ultimately be my very best success story so far? Anyway, lots to say, pass along and share so I better end this one and begin another. I really hope you enjoy this blog and I really do appreciate you stopping by my personal blog, AtVins.

By the way, if you find any of this personal blog interesting, please book mark it or better yet, share it below! Thanks again.
