During the past 2 years I have shot over 20,000 photos and videos, and made a decision to monetize them.
Along the way, I met other web developers, photographers, video shooters, music composers who are contributing from around the globe.
We will be making all of this content available for sale, as we continually create more content.
Therefore I am happy to announce that Kirby Stock Exchange is open for business!

So my choice today was,
1. Drive 35+ miles to mountain bike in an area where I’m pretty sure hunting season is happening with either a bow, shotgun or muzzle loader (Morris, Sussex, Passaic, Hunterdon counties) -OR-
2. Mountain bike closer to me, but it’s illegal, because hippiecrites in towns like Maplewood, Montclair, Berkeley Heights, don’t know how to share their tens of thousands of acres of parks and many miles of trails with bicyclists, so they pay police to impound bikes. -OR-
3. Don’t ride at all
I chose 1. Because life is short. And I’d rather die doing with I love, than sit in my butt and be safe doing nothing. I stuck to the main trail, wore tie dye clothes, bright red helmet, clamped a rattling device to my handlebars to announce my presence with noise. And I was fine.

“For America has developed powers and capacities greater and more wonderful than other nations. While it is true that its people have attained a marvelous material civilization, I hope that spiritual forces may animate this great body and a corresponding spiritual civilization be established. May the inhabitants of this country become like angels of heaven with faces turned continually toward God. May all of them become the servants of the Omnipotent One. May they rise from present material attainments to such a height that heavenly illumination may stream from this center to all the peoples of the world.”
