Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Chicago Tribune:

Cubs fans hoping for a World Series title before they die at least can be buried in a place that looks like Wrigley Field when they do.

Ground was broken for Beyond the Vines, an internment area at Bohemian National Cemetery on Chicago’s Northwest Side that will be built to look something like the ballpark’s ivy-covered brick center field wall.

Dennis Mascari, who purchased the plots to carry out the concept, said several people already have contacted him about placing their loved ones in urns in what he calls the “eternal skyboxes” that will be available at the cemetery.

“I’m trying to help with the bereavement process, because going through a cemetery—cemeteries are beautiful, but they’re still kind of gloomy,” Mascari said. “I’m trying to change that process.”

The memorial wall, which will stand about 14 feet high and 35 feet long, will have a stained glass window meant to recall Wrigley’s green scoreboard. There will be room for about 280 urns, and Mascari said he hopes to expand with an entire outfield if all goes well with center field.
