haha its a ghost! Lots of life changes lately (new house (and new gym :-), new job for wifey, etc,) but I'm still around. Hope everyone is going well. i was friends with him on FB but I couldn't find him, maybe ill try twitter then, tx!
Glad to see things are good man. I'm guessing by the email addy you've decided to lend your skills to the masses. On a completely random note, are those your pits on the website? So ferocious and mean looking.
haha yah its a project ill be starting up this summer. gonna do personal training and a portion of every session fee will go towards pit bull rescues and pit bull education programs. I just started the site development, but yah the pitties in the 'test article' images are my vicious dogs - you cant tell but they ate the cat in that one pic right after i took it :-p
Haha im sorry guys, I saw your PM last night as I got on Twitter on my iPhone but I will shoot you an email shortly, when I come into work I instantly jump into emails, then scan the forums quickly, pass off bug issues and fixes to developers, try to answer some posts and start threads, then right into working on new graphics, jquery images, then web design and development on the new pages that I am developing, starting work on the tutorial videos, doing some back end coding and brainstorming brand new ideas so I pretty much am just like in the zone as soon as I walk in and do the job of about 7 people haha.
But I am very glad that things are going well for you Josh especially new house, new gym and of course the new job for the wifey (makes it easier on life for the both of you which you cannot complain at all), I saw the pictures of your old house but I am guessing you left the old house in Philly and have moved somewhere else? (Which BLASPHEMY! Because you lived in a gorgeous area haha).
I think its hilarious that people think pit bulls are dangerous and vicious. It depends on how you breed and raise them because the pit bulls I know are sweethearts and just want love and attention (my friend who I lift with has a pit bull and she is an ultimate sweetheart) and I used to have a Chow (before a certain somebody took her) and people say Chows are vicious but mine just loved life and was as sweet as could be. Your pit bullls look like they would tear things apart and cause chaos! GRRRR! haha
But yea I will shoot you an email right now but just wanted to respond to your post buddy, sorry for taking so long.
Wake up at 6, get ready for work, get into work, nonstop work, get out of work, do work at the gym, get home at 8:30 or 9, make dinner and clean up and do work, then finally get relaxed by 10pm and then maybe play Xbox or watch netflix till 12 or 1am and then go to bed and start all over again, actually trying to get back into the groove of staying up till 3am or so and wake up a 6am as I used to so I can do more for JEFIT and answer more emails, forum posts, do graphics and make my life a tad bit easier haha.

haha you are crazy with that schedule man - I can barely function when I get 6 hours of sleep let alone 3 :-p And you hit the nail on the head, pits and other similar breeds are very eager to please their humans. So if you teach them to do bad, they will do it. If you teach them to do good, then they will be good animals. You ought to see how devastated mine are when they think they did something bad or when they get scolded. Its pathetic haha
Well I don't know what the situation is in the US, but in the UK pitbulls ended up being trophy animals or status symbols, largely with people involved in gangs. They were inevitably treated cruelly and were often trained to attack. The problem with a pitbull compared to many other dog breeds is that they can cause a lot of damage very quickly and after a number of very high-profile attacks on children the Government felt pressured into a knee-jerk reaction of adding them to the banned dangerous-dogs list. So now they are illegal in the UK and it is a criminal activity to breed them here.
Statistically speaking you are far more likely to be bitten by a jack russell terrier, which can be nasty little so-and-sos, and I never met a chihuahua that didn't snarl and snap, but the damage these dogs can do is correspondingly small and so they are not considered dangerous.
It's all a bit mad really, but the real irony is that their illegal status has made them all the more desirable as status-symbols/trophy animals for gang members, so now all the legitimate and well-looked after pits have gone and the only ones left on the streets are those with neglect-caused neuroses making them ticking-time-bombs should a child frighten them accidentally...
Personally I'm happy with my Alsatian/collie cross rescue-dog and I love him to bits!!!!
