Thursday 30 December 2010 - St. Maarten Sailing Yacht Charters <--click for more
I'm not a big time fish lover. I do like to eat
it every once in a while, and I've been fishing in my lifetime, but it's
never been quite a thrilling experience. I've had friends who have gone
fishing on those excursions where you are in beautiful surroundings and
the weather is nice, and they tell me you can have a really great time.
I'm all for that. Which is why I might try it again one of these days. Excursion St. Maarten anyone?
What could possibly be wrong with this picture? You've got beautiful
turquoise water, you're in the Caribbean, the weather is simply perfect,
and the fish are actually biting. What more could you ask for? St. Maarten Sailing Yacht
Charters is definitely worth looking at, if you want to try your own
hand at fishing in paradise. Sounds good to me!
Tuesday 28 December 2010 - Emergency Preparedness Info <--click for more
There's been a lot of storms lately around my
neck of the woods. And I know that parts of the country are suffering some
extreme weather conditions. Many people had to sleep at airports during
Christmas because flights were cancelled. And a lot of people were stuck
in their homes because the snowfall was too heavy. What do you do in
situations like this? You make sure you have supplies. Enough water is
important as that is what you're going to need before food. And blankets
are important if the power goes out. It's really a daunting task trying to
figure out exactly what else you might need, which is where a website like
1-800-PREPARE.com comes in. Not
only do you get lots of info on how to deal with particular situations,
they are a one stop shop for all your emergency needs, such as survival
kits, flashlights, candles, cooking equipment, and more. Depending on
where you live in the country, you never know when a hurricane,
earthquake, blackout, or other emergency situation may arise. Actually,
sometimes you do know, but there's nothing you can do about it but sit
tight and wait it out. In cases like that, it's best to keep the Boy
Scout's motto in mind and be prepared.
Tuesday 28 December 2010 - Costa Rica Marketing <--click for more
A friend of mine spent his honeymoon in Costa
Rica. When I asked him how it was there, he said he loved it and can't
wait to go back. It's been about 3 years since he visited the place, but
he can't stop thinking about it. Wondering what the allure was, I did a
bit of research and came to the conclusion that he might actually have a
point. Along my googling adventures, I came across Don Halbert, a person
not native to Costa Rica, but someone who decided to make it home. He
specializes in Costa Rica
marketing and knows the place inside and out. If you are looking for
someone who knows what he's doing with SEO (search engine optimization) or
SEM (search engine marketing), he's got all bases covered. Also, make sure
you visit his wildly popular Costa Rica news website. If
you want to know what's going on in Costa Rica, this news site is updated
as news happens. And if you are looking to relocate, visit the Costa Rica property site.
Sunday 26 December 2010 - Pavement Engineering & Design <--click for more
There is a lot of road work going on near my
house. Most of it has to do with widening the freeway. We've got 4 lanes,
and it looks like we'll soon have 5. I can see by the sheer amount of work
that has been done that a lot of thought and effort has been put into the
planning stages. And this thought brings me to a Pavement Engineering & Design
firm in Austin, Texas called The Transtec Group. They do
projects all around the globe, and chances are, you've probably been on a
road or airport runway that they've designed, planned, or constructed.
Their services include pavement evaluation, design, specifications,
forensics, surface characteristics, value engineering, non-destructive
evaluation, quality assurance, and pavement management. If your
organization has any pavement needs whatsoever, this outfit is more than
capable of handling your project. They've won global awards and can
complete your project without breaking your budget.
Sunday 26 December 2010 - YouTube to MP3 <--click for more
Sometimes, there are
videos on YouTube that I would like to have a copy of on my hard drive.
I'm not always online, as I move around often, but there are some videos
that I'd like in order to share with others. The old school way of dealing
with this was to install an add-on in Firefox and download the videos.
Now, there's a much easier way. If you have the link for the video, simply
go to the YouTube to MP3 page and paste
the YouTube link in. You'll get an option for the quality level and then
your download will start. How cool is that? If you'd still like to use a
Firefox add-on, you have that option, but you can also just stick with the
converter options on their website. Nice and simple. If only more of the
world were like that...

Wednesday 23 December 2010 - Silly Poetry <--click for more
I've run across a new poetry website called Silly Poetry. If you like limericks
or playing with words in unusual ways, you might find this site amusing. I
have a copy of John Lennon's book In His Own Write, which has a lot of
clever lines written in a very fun way. So is it with this site. When I
was younger, I used to have a grand time tinkering with word construction
and trying to find innovative methods to connect ideas and phrases in
unusual ways. My mind has since matured, and no longer takes as much
pleasure in such fancy. However, every once in a while, I am overtaken by
the desire to inspire. But my flame of inspiration usually falls short.
Maybe if I venture to this site in such situations...
Wednesday 23 December 2010 - Rolex Watches <--click for more
Christmas is coming, and I still want a Rolex
watch. I haven't gotten one yet, but if you'd like to get me one, I know
the perfect place. There is a great selection of Rolex watches at Stein Diamonds. My favorite is
the Submariner. I once called a jewelry store and asked them if they had
one in stock. I really wanted it. Unfortunately, they did have it in
stock, so I had to tell them that I was really just "window" shopping and
wasn't ready to commit to a purchase. But, if about $8K all of a sudden
hit my lap, wouldn't it be fun to get one!
Sunday 19 December 2010 - Las Vegas Web Design <--click for more

do for you.
Sunday 19 December 2010 - Birthday Ecards <--click for more
Almost everyone I know
has received an e-card. This is partly due to the fact that I like to send
them. They are quick, and give you much more of a choice than the standard
cards you see on the rack in your local supermarket. But, after a while,
your choices start to get a bit limited, especially if you send a lot of
cards. What you need is an alternate to American Greetings and Blue
Mountain and the other ecard companies. One such alternate I've recently
found that has a great selection of birthday ecards is a website called ojolie.com. They offer beautiful
animated ecards with tasteful music, perfect for anyone you might want to
send to. You won't find these cards anywhere else. They are beautifully
illustrated by hand and will really make your recipient's day. They also
offer cards for major holidays, so consider them the next time you need to
send an ecard.
Sunday 19 December 2010 - Deal of the Day Tracker <--click for more
You've seen those places like Groupon and Living Social, right? They offer
deals that are hard to beat, and if you look around, there are lot of
these types of sites out there. What if you could find a place that has
all of these daily deals all in a single location? That would be cool,
right? Well, your wish has been granted. Check out the deal of the day tracker. If you
live in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, San Diego, or San Francisco,
they'll keep track of the cool deals in your area so you don't have to.
Bookmark them and visit once a day to see the current day's deal. New
deals are added every 24 hours, and if they don't cover your city yet,
they are planning on adding more cities, so keep checking.

Friday 17 December 2010 - P90X Fitness Training Review <--click for more
If you've watched any amount of television in
the past months, you'll probably know exactly what P90X is. If you
haven't, then suffice it to say that it's the ultimate system for getting
ripped in just 90 days. If you're looking to get that toned look and you
want washboard abs, this is what you need. And if you want to know where to buy
p90x, this is the place to do it. And if you order it here, you get a
special bonus of Tony Horton's "Fountain of Youth", which is a great yoga

Thursday 16 December 2010 - Travel in Italy <--click for more
The first time I went to Italy, it was with a
busload of 17-year old Swedes. I was a foreign exchange student from the
United States, and we were on our way to the south of France for a week of
fun in the sun. Crossing into Italy, our bus was stopped by over zealous
border guards with automatic weapons. They boarded the bus, most likely to
ogle the pretty Swedish girls. But then they saw me. I didn't quite look
Swedish, so with weapons in hand, they asked me to get out of the bus.
When asked, I showed them my passport, which made them even more
suspicious, because it was from the United States, not Sweden, and they
knew the bus was Swedish. So, they called for backup. After another 5
minutes, they figured there was nothing else they could do to detain me,
so they let me get back on the bus, and we continued our trip. Yes, this
was my first experience in Italy. Don't let yours be like this. Go
prepared! Visit Bric's USA
for the insider knowledge that will come in handy to make your visit to
Italy memorable in a good way. There is a lot more to Italy than
confronting guards with assault weapons. My second trip there proves that.
If you'd like to experience a really wonderful trip to Italy, then Bric
will be more than helpful. They'll make it possible for you to discover
places that most tourists miss out on. Check it out.

sound advice for training your dog, you need to check them out.
Wednesday 8 December 2010 - Christmas Gifts for Dad <--click for more
I don't know if you realize it or not, but
there are only a few more weeks left before Christmas. If you're going to
buy something online, you better get to it! Check out Christmas Gifts for Dad if
you are looking for something for your husband or your dad. They've got
plenty of ideas, and I should know. Everything from elegant yet
sophisticated watches, high tech gadgetry, tools, and more. Did I mention
tools? If you want a website that will help you brainstorm some great
ideas for the dads on your list, this is great place to visit.
Wednesday 8 December 2010 - Shopper Approved <--click for more
Do you or someone you know run an online store
or other such place on the Internet where people buy products or services?
You should check out Shopper
Approved, a great place where real customers review and rate their
buying experience. If you run a great store, why not let your own
customers spread the good word about it? People who buy from you can fill
out a simple customer satisfaction survey and help boost your consumer
ratings. After you join the service, you get to put up a "seal of
approval" that shows your customers' experiences. New visitors to your
site can click on the seal to see live statistics and read online reviews.
It's a great way to promote your business to a market that is becoming
more demanding and picky about where they want to spend their money.
Wednesday 8 December 2010 - Simply Superheroes <--click for more
When I was a kid, I loved dressing up as
characters from my favorite tv shows. My favorite of all-time was dressing
as Captain Kirk from Star Trek. I had the requisite yellow shirt with
captain stripes, black pants, and the black boots. Of course, I looked
nothing like William Shatner, but did that really matter? My best friend
at the time was a trekkie as well, and I still remember when we went to
Space Con 3 all decked out in our starfleet uniforms, waiting to get a
glimpse of Grace Lee Whitney, who played Yeoman Rand on TOS (The Original
Series). Well, I'm all grown up now, and I'd like to say I've put away
childish things, but that's not really the case. Instead, I now dream of
becoming a superhero. You know, like Superman or Batman. Well, there's a
place online where you can get the costume of your dreams. It's called Simply Superheroes, and your
kids might like the stuff they have there as well. But that's not to say
that you won't also like their collection of cool costumes and other
accessories. Dress like Spiderman, or wear a Boba Fett bounty hunter
t-shirt. I still remember my son's comment after a night of trick or
treating as Darth Vader. He was sweaty, tired, and really wanted to go
home and eat candy. When we were almost done for the night, he turned to
me and said, "you know, it's hard being on the dark side."
Wednesday 8 December 2010 - Best Way To Lose Weight <--click for more
If you are ready to start a new diet or weight
loss program, you need to find one that is actually going to work for you.
One that I've recently found that has a lot of merit is simply called The Diet
Solution. It was developed by Isabel De Los Rios, an expert in
nutrition and exercise. With over 10 years experience helping people lose
weight and become healthier in the process, she has what it takes to make
a difference. Her clients have overcome such health conditions as heart
disease and diabetes with her help. Check out her diet program to see if
it can help you.
Monday 6 December 2010 - The Power of Passive Investing <--click for more
Let's say you have a finite amount of money and
you want to spend as little time as possible making it grow. Do you put it
into the stock market? No, that takes way too much time to manage. For the
same reason, you want to stay away from the Forex market. Instead, what
you want is a way to invest that takes as little time as possible. What
you want is passive investing. Check out The
Power of Passive Investing: More Wealth with Less Work by Rick Ferri.
This 288-page book is filled with insight, advice, and resources for
helping you create a sound investment plan. People always think they can
do better than indexed funds. Well, statistically, that's almost never the
case. Instead of flipping stocks and incurring fees everytime you move
from one great company to the next, putting your money into index funds
might actually be a better choice, and leave you with a lot less
heartburn. Think about it.
Saturday 4 December 2010 - Photocopiers from Online Connect UK <--click for more
Office equipment can be boring. But if you work
on an office, there's nothing boring with a malfunctioning copier when you
need 5 collated sets of your latest document. And if you're running on a
tight deadline, you don't want problems. If you run an office in the UK
and are in need of a reliable photocopier or other office equipment, check
out photocopiers from Online
Connect UK. They offer sales and leases of new or used equipment. Their
options give you affordable solutions to your office equipment needs.
Friday 3 December 2010 - Epson ink cartridges <--click for more
There's almost nothing worse than going to
print an important document, only to find that you've run out of ink. It's
happened to me more times than I'd care to admit. But now, I try to keep
extra printer cartridges on hand so it doesn't happen anymore. If you own
an Epson printer like me, check out the Epson ink cartridges
available from Castle Ink. I own the Epson Stylus R200 printer, which I've
had for a long time. It's a great printer, but it sucks down ink like it's
going out of style. For this reason, I tend to keep a couple of each
cartridge in reserve, and with the decent prices at Castle Ink, it doesn't
have to be an expensive proposition.
Thursday 2 December 2010 - Link Tracking and Cloaking Software <--click for more
I've just found something that I've just signed up

Monday 29 November 2010 - Photo Books <--click for more
Would you like to commemorate
an event? Or, maybe you've just had a family gathering where lots of
pictures were taken. Why not make a photo book out of the photos? Think in
terms of a high school yearbook. Lots of photos in a keepsake format will
last a lot longer than indvidual snapshots. Photobookmart offers photo books
in a variety of formats, with a default size of 40 pages. It's a great way
to keep a permanent record of something important to you or your family.
And it will also make a great conversation piece for your next gathering.

very few people in the world of small business that have not heard of
Napoleon Hill. Maybe there's no one. He wrote that classic Think and Grow

and the Think

check out all the other books and products they have to offer. If you're

Trying to learn a foreign
language? It's a daunting task. I know. I've tried learning several
different foreign languages, none with much success. Except perhaps
Swedish. But that's another story. If you're trying to learn Spanish,
Italian, Portuguese, French, Catalan, or Galician, you're in luck. The Verb Practice website will make short
order of verb conjugations. It's a fun and quick way to learn, and you can
do it whenever you have some extra time on your hands. I've been brushing
up on my Spanish. And I'm going to have to brush for a very long time, as
it's been many years since I've practiced...
Sunday 28 November 2010 - Viral Might, Can you Digg It? <--click for more
Maybe you know what Digg is.
Maybe you don't. If you don't, you might want to check it out, especially
if you're trying to get exposure for your website or blog. It's basically
a social site, something like Twitter or Facebook, but it focuses on news
or newsworthy items of interest. Many people use Digg for marketing
purposes. Because millions of people visit Digg, it's a great place to get
exposure for your products or services. But just placing an article there
is not good enough. You need people to "digg" your article so that it
bubbles up to the surface where more and more people can actually see it.
That's where Viral Might comes in.
They will Digg your story and help it get to the top or at least give it
enough of a jumpstart to get it on its way. If you have a good story, just
this jumpstart can trigger a viral effect that can get it to the top in no
time. And because Viral Might uses real people to do their work, the
chances are much better that your story will go viral.
Saturday 27 November 2010 - DMV Web Design <--click for more
I get friends asking me for
help setting up their websites all the time. I don't mind helping, but my
skills are frozen in time, circa 1995 or so. That's when I stopped
learning html. I know things have progressed, so now I either tell people
to use wordpress or some such animal, or to hire someone if the website
they are working on is important enough. An outfit like DMV Web Design can handle just
about any type of website you need. I've seen enough bad design from my
friends to know that trying to do it yourself is just wrong. Leave it to
professionals. They have the tools, the know-how, and have done it enough
to get it right without wasting time.
Friday 26 November 2010 - Indulgent Bath and Body Care <--click for more
Welcome to Black Friday. This
is traditionally the day of the year where merchants go into the black on
their profit and loss sheets because of the amount of business generated.
'Tis certainly the season to get busy thinking about what presents to get
for those certain people on your list. Indulgent Bath and Body Care is a
great place to go for those people on your list who need extra pampering
this holiday season. They feature all sorts of bath products, such as bath
salts, natural soaps, oil, and more. Especially nice are the handmade
soaps. Check out some of the "flavors" they come in, such as coconut,
cucumelon, grapefruit margarita, and chery almond. You might not be able
to eat them, but you can certain indulge in the aroma while you're
pampering yourself in the bath.

We've got a kitchen floor that is in a constant state of chaos. Whether it
be spilled milk, cracked eggs, or some other wonderful mess the kids end
up making, there's always something to be cleaned up. And then trying to
keep it clean between spills is a chore. The Shark Steam Pocket
Mop is a handy tool for doing quick cleanups, and it's nice to keep it
on hand for those quick spills that life sends you. And, because it uses
steam instead of chemicals, you've got a floor safe for children and pets.

Looking to buy a horse? Or

From the looks of it, they've got horses for sale from all the different
United States, Canada, and some other parts of the world. They've also got
the horses categorized by breed, which makes it real easy to find exactly
what you are looking for. My daughter has been nagging me about a horse,
and the only reason I looked around was because I remember back when I
wanted a horse. It didn't last that long with me, but I'm not that sure
about my daughter. She has a friend who has horses, so I think it's only
going to be a matter of time before she wears me down. There are plenty of
places around us to keep a horse, so that won't be a problem. And now I
know where to look for one...
Saturday 20 November 2010 - Accessories Loft <--click for more
My anniversary is coming up,
and I'm looking for a good gift for my wife. The only problem is, we've
decided not to spend more than $10 on each other this year, which is going
to make it really hard to find something good. But, I did find Accessories Loft, a store that
has some really nice looking jewelry and other things women like, and all
at a really great price. I'm checking out the necklaces right
now, and they have five of them that are all under $10. Nice.
Saturday 20 November 2010 - Izigg Mobile Review <--click for more
Always on the lookout for the next
greatest thing, I stumbled across the Izigg Mobile Review website. If
you haven't heard of mobile phone marketing yet, you will. It looks to
be very big. After all, who do you know that doesn't have a mobile phone?
Most people do, and some families (like mine) have eliminated land lines
altogether. Text message is one of the most popular ways people use to
stay in touch with each other. Many mobile phone plans include unlimited
texting, and with its popularity, many more plans will begin to include it
as well. Izigg recognizes that the marketing potential of the text message
is really big and can reach billions each day. If you're interested in
this opportunity, check it out for yourself.
Saturday 20 November 2010 - Pain Management Back Pad <--click for more
My mom suffers from extreme back
pain. I've been doing a little research to see if there are any products
that can help ease the pain. One product that has bubbled up to the
surface is the Lepingo
Back Pad. What is does is help improve the circulation which releases
tension to the muscles and nerve endings, and that is supposed to reduced
the pain you feel. Wear it from about an hour a day and it should give you
good results. I'm going to get one for my mom and see how it works for
her. Lepingo Products makes
other pain management products, so if you're suffering from any other type
of pain, including head, neck, shoulder, or knee pain, you should check

Interested in helping a
neighborhood, or maybe even your own neighborhood? Check out the World Barrios website. It gives you a
way to get involved and help. It lists neighborhoods in over 15 different
countries. I looked for Sacramento, but it wasn't there yet. However,
Santa Barbara and Monterey are already listed. If you own a local business
and are concerned about bringing tourism dollars closer to home, you can
use this site to find ideas and share thoughts with others. Tell what
makes your community a great place to live or visit. Tell about upcoming

Getting married? Live in
the UK? I've got the perfect site for you! It's called 101 Honeymoon Ideas, and it's
basically a website that gives you ideas for your honeymoon. If you're
getting married, you're planning one, right? When my wife and I got
married, we actually took a whole month off (hence the moon part of
honeymoon) and visited such places as Disneyland, Seaworld, and Baja
California. If we lived in the UK, I'm sure we would have ventured to
similar places. Visit this site, and you'll find 101 pictures. Hover your
mouse over a picture, and it will show you more details. Not everything is
UK based. Most destinations are outside of the UK, like Greece or Kenya.
But, there are a few UK-based destinations like Cornwall and Sussex. Have
fun and make it memorable!
Tuesday 16 November 2010 - PDF Classic Books <--click for more
Where do you go when you
are looking for something no longer in print or too old for most
bookstores to carry? Where do you go if you want something out of the
ordinary or more interesting than what's on the New York Times bestseller
list? I just found a great new site called PDF Classic Books that has all
sorts of reading material in pdf format. Download and read on your
computer or whatever you have that can deal with pdf files. Something that
I have been looking for is Napoleon Hill's The
Law of Success in 16 Lessons. They've got it, along with Think and
Grow Rich and many other classic titles. They also have books for animal
care, cooking, hobbies, war, nature, parenting, and much more. If you want
to expand your reading choices, give them a visit and check out their

Every once in a while, I
try to inject culture into my soul. Usually, this is done by visiting an
art museum or browsing a site of poetry. Well, I found an interesting
poetry site the other day, and I'd like to share it with you. It's called
A Chance for Romance. The
poems have relationships as themes, which kind of struck a chord in me.
When I was in Sweden many years ago, I met a black South African poet.
This was during the time of apartheid, and we became good friends. He was
in Sweden to receive a literary prize of some sort, and at the time, I
wrote songs and played them on my guitar. He actually like some of my
songs and told me something that I still remember to this day. This is
what he said: "All poetry, songs, written word - it's all about
relationships. You might think you're writing about something else, but
you are only using it as a vehicle to express love." That's what he said,
and that's what I get from the poems on this site. They are expressions of
love, perhaps love lost, maybe even love gained, but always love.
Tuesday 16 November 2010 - Studio Graphics Monthly <--click for more
Let's face it. Most web
design is horrible, mine included. I've been meaning to spruce it up, but
I am by no means a web designer. I have friends who do it for a living,
but they don't have to time to help me out. So, I've been looking on the
Internet for help, and I found Studio Graphics Monthly.
It's not exactly what I wanted, but it certainly sounds interesting. What
they give you is access to professionally designed templates and graphics
that you can use as your own. Just put your name on it and upload it to
your host and start making money. They call it a business in a box,
because they give you everything you need. Each month, you get the full
package, including professional sales copy, high quality page design,
thank you page, and extra bonus items. Only 500 licenses to this content
will ever be sold, so if you're looking for a easy business to get into,
you may well want to check this opportunity out.
Monday 15 November 2010 - Fuzzy Wuzzy Anipals <--click for more
Do you remember your first stuffed
plush animal? Mine was an oversized bunny. I loved him so much that my mom
had to put him in the trash after about a year. I dressed him in clothes,
took him camping with me, lost him a few times in the wilderness, etc.
Now, I chastise my own kids when they abuse their plushy friends. And all
the while, I sort of wish I had another one of my own. I'd really take
good care of it this time. Promise! So, Fuzzy Wuzzy Anipals is what I
found today. They've got stuffed plushies of all types, from the usual
bunnies and dogs and kittens to the strange and unusual, like aardvarks,
turkeys, butterflies, giant microbes, and more. You've even got the
typical licensed merchandise, like Pooh and Dora. And the word is that
they are actively seeking a couple new companies to add to their already
extensive selection. Remember that Christmas is just around the corner, so
get your shopping done soon. Fuzzy Wuzzy Anipals is one of the most fun
sales sites I have seen in a very long time. It should make shopping for
the kid's fun for any occasion not just the Holiday Season. I would
recommend just going to hang out and read the descriptions, not to mention
looking at all the cuteness. And for the person who has everything, how
about the Giant
stuff plush rabies microbe?

If you're a beat maker,
you've got to check out Sounds
for Beats, which is an amazing site filled with tons of sound samples
you can use to create music using software such as FL Studio or Reason.
Some sites will sell you sound kit that might include lots of sounds
you're not even interested in, but this site will let you pick and choose
the exact instrument sounds you want.
Monday 15 November 2010 - Web Based Photo Booth <--click for more
I have a webcam that I'm playing
around with. It's kind of cool, as I can take pictures remotely. So, if
I'm at work, I can take a picture of my room at home to see who's been
eating my miniature Kit Kat bars. A service that acts like a web based photo booth allows me to take
snapshots and have them emailed to me or someone else, and I can download
the snapshots to my desktop. It's kind of cool, and I'm thinking of
setting up my own "weather cam" at the office that points out the window
and lets me check things from home, snapping pictures when I see a cool
sunset or something like that. The nice thing about Picanom is, the pictures it creates
don't have any logo imprints or ad texts, so they are nice and clean and
can be used wherever you like.
Monday 15 November 2010 - Remote Control Fishing Boat <--click for more
Do you have any fishermen on
your Christmas list? Think that it's going to be hard to find something
for them this year? Well, surprisingly, there's a gift you can get them
that I've never seen before. It's called the Remote Control Fishing Boat. Let's
say your fisherman goes fishing on a lake and he doesn't have his own boat
to get out where the fish might be. He can have the boat drive his fishing
line out to whereever he wants to try and then release it. Sometimes, you
just can't cast far enough, or there are other obstructions to getting
your line exactly where you want it, but with this RC Fishing idea, you can try
dropping your line places that used to be completely out of reach. And for
the kids, they can use the boat to actually pull fish in once they are
caught. So, whether the fisherman on your gift list is 6 or 60, this gift
will make fishing more fun that it already is.
Sunday 14 November 2010 - Scottsdale Real Estate <--click for more
I have friends that live in
Scottsdale, Arizona. They have a condo, but are looking to upsize and have
been looking at DC Ranch homes for sale . They told me they are in the
process of hiring a Realtor in the area. I told them to check out Barry
Cox's website. He is a realtor in their area and knows the DC Ranch area
very well. One thing I've found with house hunting is, you need someone
who knows the area better than you, because there are going to be things
only someone with inside knowledge will know that might make or break a
deal or open up opportunities that you would never find on your own. If
buying or selling Scottsdale real estate is in
your future, you should consider Barry Cox.

Remember my friend who asked
me about anti-aging cremes? She hasn't given up looking for the fountain
of youth. She asked me if I could find her a decent website with general
information on how to deal with skin care. So, I looked around and found
Anti Aging Skin Care
Products, a site that has a plethora of advice and tips regarding how
to deal with skin care. I was quite surprised, as it offered not only
tips, but candid reviews of products that may help with the anti aging
process. And these aren't just topical products, as the site covers things
you can eat and drink that may help. The site appears to get updated
frequently, so if you are looking for anti aging products and information,
you might want to bookmark this one.

the past that I'm sure you'll enjoy.

When I was a kid, I owned
a model railroad set. It was HO scale, and I had great fun with it. Now
that I'm all grown up, my railroad set has long since passed into other
hands, the victim of one my my mom's garage sales. I really don't have
space to set up a set nowadays, and my kids don't seem as interested as I
was. Except for Michael. He's 6, and he really does love trains. If you
love trains, check out Model

Tuesday 9 November 2010 - Surf Anonymously <--click for more
Ever wonder how many people or
organizations keep track of who you are and what you are doing? Believe
me, there are tons. If you worry about this, or if you worry about privacy
in general, then you should consider surfing the web anonymously. You can
do this by surfing through a proxy, which is a third-party ip address that
masks your own ip address, making it difficult if not impossible for
others to track who you are or what ISP you use. Am I being paranoid about
this? I don't think so. Did you know that depending on where you are, you
may or may not be able to access certain parts of the Internet? Also, if
you are using one of those nifty wireless Internet sticks to browse the
Internet, people are able to triangulate your position within a few feet
of where you are. Kind of scary, eh? Who needs it? Use a program like Hide IP Easy. Make it look like you
are in a complete different part of the country. Or even better yet, make
it look like your are in a completely different country. No one needs to
know your exact whereabouts, especially the people who want to do you
harm. There's a reason why you are asked for your zip code when you use
your credit card. If someone knows about where you live, and they grab
your credit card information (which happens much more than you think),
they probably now know your zip code. Play it safe. A product like Hide IP
Easy works to help you surf anonymously, and if you choose, can give you a
new IP address every ten minutes or so, if you choose, and even make it
look like you're in a different country. It's the protection you need in
this modern, confusing mess of a world we live in these days. I try not to
browse without some sort of protection, and Hide IP Easy is my anonymizer
of choice now. It's easy to use and takes care of the problem without me
having to fiddle with settings in my web browser or remember to change
things every ten minutes. The feature of changing your IP address every
once in a while is a feature that is worth all the gold in the world. I
set it and forget it. No product could be easier to use. If you want
surfing protection, check out Hide
IP Easy today. It's one of the best tools I've come across in a long
Saturday 6 November 2010 - Organic Gemstone Jewelry <--click for more
Always on the lookout for good
Christmas presents, I came across the website of a woman who makes organic style jewelry. Her
work is beautiful and elegant. She also uses pure silver as opposed to
sterling silver. She also uses 22k gold whereas many jewelers use 14k or
18k gold. Much of what she sells is for people who are marathon runners or
triathletes. Being a former professional tennis player, she has found the
pulse of other athletes and knows what they like. These are very personal
pieces that you can't get anywhere else. As with anything custom, you need
to allow enough time for delivery, especially if you want to have
something made in time for Christmas. If you are looking for something
really unique, check out the coin cuff
bracelets. Shop early and have fun looking at all of the quality
pieces she showcases on her website.
Saturday 6 November 2010 - The Alec Difrawi Project <--click for more
Most of you have probably never heard of Alec Difrawi. Neither did I until
I ran across the Alec Difrawi
Project. Basically, he's a person that has gone through a lot of ups
and downs. He has been in prison, started a multi-million dollar business
from scratch, and has been accused of many things. Some of those things
might actually be true, but others most likely aren't. It's an interesting
read, and no matter what you think after learning his story, I think
you'll agree with me that it's the stuff that movies are made of. There
have been plenty of famous people that have been in similar experiences,
and the only difference between them and Alex Difrawi is that they were
visible on radar for a lot more people. Maybe you've never started an
international modeling agency or successful Internet company, but you
don't have to in order to understand what kind of microscope that puts you
under. Look at the new movie about Facebook. We all know a lot more about
the founder of that company than anyone of us probably cares. It's all
interesting, and the Alex Difrawi story is no different.
Saturday 6 November 2010 - iPhone Repair <--click for more
I got a call today from a
friend of mine in Texas. He lives in Dallas and was working for Dell
before he got laid off. Now, he's doing odd jobs and keeps track of
everything with his iPhone. Unfortunately, he killed is iPhone one day
when he was out on a field call. Do you know how it feels to all of a
sudden be without a mobile phone? It happened to me once, and it was only
because I forgot it at home. Let me tell you, it's really uncomfortable if
you are used to having it all the time. My friend was a wreck when his
phone broke. Fortunately, he was able to ship it off to a company in
Austin, Texas, and they were able to fix his phone in no time flat. He was
back in business in only a matter of days. If you ever have a problem with
your iPhone, check out this iPhone
Repair company. They do good work and include a 30-day warranty on all
repairs. They can also unlock and jailbreak your iPhone and sell chargers
and other accessories.

I know I keep mentioning this
company, but since it's so close to Christmas, I've decided that it's time
to order some of their t-shirts for my family and friends. I've also got a
few ideas for some designs of my own and will see about get some
customized t-shirts made. They offer free shipping in the US and have over
500 existing designs to choose from. One of the cool t-shirts I'm going
to get for my oldest son is the "my shirt has words on it" and perhaps "i
do all my own stunts". There are some really funny cool t-shirts
like "marilize legijuana!". I especially like the men's cool t-shirts like
"i like my water with barley and hops". Want cheap cool t-shirts?
You'll find one here. At only $17.97 with free shipping, it's a great deal
no matter how you slice it.

unique wild look, unlike most domestic-looking cats. On the website,
you'll find pictures of the cats they use for breeding purposes and some
of the kittens. They really are a unique looking breed of cat, so if you
are looking to adopt a kitten, and you have the resources to go for the

It's amazing how much change

loose coins, I came across these reusable coin wrappers. The rolls are
actually made from recycled plastic milk containers and can be used many
times before being thrown out. And of course, they come in penny, nickel,
dime, and quarter sizes. Penny
Revolution sells these coin tubes at a great price. Check out their

Thursday 4 November 2010 - Brian Tracy on Goals <--click for more
Always looking for
the next good self-improvement website, I came across a site focusing on
Tracy Goals. Who is Brian Tracy? That's a good question. He is one of
those people who knows how to motivate people to do what they think is
outside of their realm of possibility. I feel like those people a lot.
Sometimes, the world simply overwhelms, and I feel like I can't achieve my
goals or even get close to making a dent in them. Part of the problem is
mindset. If you can fix your mindset, you can accomplish just about
anything. The article he writes on goals
hits the proverbial nail on the head. If you think you should start by
dreaming small, you've got it all wrong. Start off by dreaming big. Read
his insightful article for more details. I think you'll agree that he
gives good advice.

I'm not a big golf fan. I've
played only a few times in my life. But, I do have to say that I enjoyed
it greatly. And this is why I am seriously thinking of playing golf on my
next vacation. I know a lot of people do this kind of thing, as I see lots
of golf bags on the baggage conveyers at the airport. I've been thinking
about this so much lately, that I've decided to research it a bit. Perfect Golf Vacations is
a great website that I found. It's made it easy for me to do all the
research I need. They also offer customized discount golf packages, online
tee time booking at up to 70% off regular rates, golf destination
information, money-saving travel deals, reviews and recommendations from
golfers, and give you the opportunity to share your reviews,
recommendations, opinions and pictures with your travelers. Nice site, and
I encourage you to visit it if you are thinking about taking a golf
Thursday 4 November 2010 - Anti Aging Creme <--click for more
I've got a friend who
asked me what I knew about anti-aging cremes, and I said that I knew
absolutely nothing. So, then she asked me to research the topic for her,
as she's wondering if they would do her any good. OK, I said. I would do
that. Well, here's the result of my research. There are thousands of sites
out there that are devoted to making you look younger than you really are.
Anti-aging cremes are just the tip of the iceberg. But I also found out
that there are some cremes that actually work and there are some cremes
that are actually terrible for you because of the ingredients they
contain. This anti-aging creme
website has some of the most useful information on the subject. Check it
out if you're looking to start using it on yourself or you know of anyone

This company promised to get their house sold quickly, and in 26 days, it
was done. They got a cash offer that was very decent, and they were able
to close on a new home that had the extra room they needed for the new
baby. It worked out perfectly! If you live in the UK and need to sell your

Friday 29 October 2010 - Free Computer Repair and Advice <--click for more
Our communal home computer is on its last legs. Actually, it's on its last
legs of this particular install of Windows XP. It's kind of a nice Dell
running at 2.8ghz, but it seems much slower than that right now. The more
time passes, the slower the computer gets, until eventually, it just stops
working correctly. We're at this time now, so I'm looking for a good
resource to handle this situation, as I really do not want to reinstall
Windows XP one more time. I don't think I have the patience for tracking
down all the drivers I need, and backing up the stuff that must be backed
up if I decide to completely wipe the hard drive. So, I looked on the
Internet and found free computer
repair help that I am in the process of using to determine if the
situation can be saved. From what I can gather, the situation indeed can
be saved. The website has an excellent step-by-step procedure for dealing
with a slow computer, and I think it's going to work for me. If you need
help with your own computer, and it's running Windows, you should check

You see them everywhere. You know what I mean.
Those Kindles that people have. They use them to read newspapers, magazines, even books. Go in
a coffee shop and there's at least a few tables with Kindle users. The only problem seems to
be, how do you tell them apart? What if you are sitting at the table with a friend and you
both have Kindles? You both get up to pick up your drink orders and when you return, you can't
tell each other's Kindle apart. I've actually had this happen before. Not with a Kindle, but
with something similar. It's a rather rude surprise to come home and find out you've got
someone else's thing. And that they have yours. How about personalizing your Kindle? Kindle covers not only protect them from the hazards of the
day. They also differentiate them from each other, giving them personalities. It's the holiday
season. Christmas shopping starts soon. Why not get a Kindle
cover for that special person on your list. Or maybe even pick one up for yourself.

Maybe you have a resume all set to go out because you need a new job. But
what about the cover letter? Surprisingly, most people put their big
effort in doing a great resume and then end up doing the cover letter as

first thing someone in the HR department is going to see. If they aren't

bother with the resume? So, don't scrawl out a short note like "hey,

I just found a
really interesting blog that I'm planning on bookmarking. It's called Learn Simple
Ways to Self Improve and it's all about doing things for yourself that

his business card idea. Instead of exchanging business cards, why not
exchange cell phone numbers instead. That way, the number is right in your
phone, and you can text each other. Immediate and not something likely to
be thrown out or lost. Whenever someone asks for my number, I ask for
theirs, and then call it immediately. They get my number without typos and
can immediately save it to their address book. I know that the number I
called is accurate as well, and I save it. Little things like this really

problem. There is not one country that hasn't been hit with the economic
crisis that has overtaken us in these last few years. So, brushing up on
your job getting skills is more important now than ever before. There are
many places that will help you write resumes, but you need more than a
good resume. You also need to know how to interview well, because it's you
and hundreds of other potential candidates competing for that one measly
job that opens up. Any edge you can have over others is going to make it
all the easier for you to win the job you want. That's why career
counseling is so important. You don't just need help with your resume. You
also need help with cover letters, interview tactics, follow-up
strategies, and much more. There are places all over the world that offer
these kinds of services. Even in Greece, you can visit CV CLINIC. They offer help for people
in Greece, where the economic crisis has especially hit really hard.
Monday 18 October 2010 - Mold in Basement <--click for more
Over the weekend, I decided to do a little cleanup in my garage. What a
mess! And it's not exactly all ours. It appears that we are infected with
a virulent strain of mold that has grown from the ground up. Not knowing
the first thing to do about it, I checked the handy dandy Internet and
quickly found a site called Mold
in Basement. OK, so it's not our basement that has the problem, but I
figured, close enough. The site gives all sorts of good information for
how to deal with mold, describes the different types of mold that you
might have to deal with, and also gives tips and tricks for preventing
future outbreaks. The garage is not really well ventilated, and one of the
problems is, mold really likes to reproduce in places that are warm and
damp. If you have a mold problem, check this site out. You might find just
the remedy to your problem.

Wednesday 13 October 2010 - MrTEES <--click for more
OK, I admit it. I'm a sucker for
a funny t-shirt. I used to be a big
collector, until I entered the professional job scene. Then, I became a
super huge collector, but I don't wear any of them to professional
functions. Mostly, I wear them around the house. Always on the lookout for
cool t-shirts, I came across a site
called MrTEES. Yes, like in A-Team. The big guy who says the line "I pity
the fool!" You've got to check some of these designs out. They've got
everything from hilarious sayings to the downright rude. I'm not a big fan
of offensive t-shirts, but I know
quite a few people who are. The shirts are very affordable, at only
$17.97, and that includes free shipping inside the U.S. You'll find over
500 designs, so if you have many moods, you can get many t-shirts to fit
them. Check them out.

Do you have an
Internet-based business? Looking for ways to get exposure for your
website? There are plenty of ways of doing it, and I've come across many.
One I just recently came across is called Business Blogs where you can
submit a post related to your business. They publish your post and you get
exposure. Each post also gets broadcast to their social network. This
includes Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and more. It's a great service that
I am planning on using often. And best of all, it's entirely free!
Wednesday 13 October 2010 - Portland Colonics <--click for more
My mom is thinking about colonics. That's what she told me on the phone. So, I asked
her, what exactly is colonics? She said her doctor recommended it, but didn't know
and wanted me to find out for her. Actually, it's a procedure that's done to clean
out your colon. I looked it up on the Internet and found tons of information. Some
of the best information I got was from a site called Portland Colonics. They have a good FAQ
with information on what "colonic hydrotherapy" is and what you can expect it to do
for you. Basically, it is supposed to improve your health, and with how it is
explained on their web site, it makes complete sense. Visit the site and check out
the information. And if you are in the Portland, Oregon area, consider them if you
want to pursue colinic hydrotherapy.

Some say there are no surefire ways to win at gambling, that eventually, you will
lose your shirt. What if I were to tell you that there is a way, and that way has

Monday 11 October 2010 - The PLR Profits <--click for more
Always on the lookout for ways to make money online, I came across a site called The PLR Profits. You might ask, what
exactly is PLR? Well, it's an acronym for "Private Label Rights". It means that you
buy these products and you have the rights to resell them with very few
restrictions. It means you become a publisher and make money everytime someone buys
a report from you. And even better, if you buy these reports, you can use them
yourself to make some great money online. The techniques and tricks are worth a
whole lot more than the cost of admission. Some of the PLR products include "Social
Media Profits" where you discover how to make money using social media sites; "Auto
Yahoo" where you get a bunch of Yahoo visitors by asking questions or answer other
people's questions; "Blogging Cash System" where you learn to set up moneymaking
blogs. There's much, much more in this package, and the cool thing is, it's only
going to set you back $9. That's not a typo. It's only $9! Act fast before the offer
Monday 11 October 2010 - Photoshop Tools Tutorials (ToolTuts) <--click for more
I've never been very good at Photoshop.
I've got friends that have mastered it to such a degree that you can say things to
them like, "I went to a party, but my best friend couldn't make it, and when they
took photos, I really wished he could be there..." And their response is something
like, "No problem - show me a photo, and I'll add him in." How do you learn stuff
like that? To start, you make your way over to a site called Photoshop Tools Tutorials. They've got a
set of free tutorials on how to use all those nifty tools in Photoshop. The
tutorials are simple enough for me to go through them, and I'm learning some neat
techniques that I'm going to be using in my next batch of photos...

I'm always on the lookout for
good web design ideas and recently found a company called TechXpress. They offer IT Services,

t-shirt store, and I really liked what they did for the Aloha Shirt Shop.

page. Check out the video-based

Saturday 9 October 2010 - Free Stuff UK <--click for more
My friend Darren in the UK has
made me jealous. He pointed out a new site he just found which he refers
to as free samples uk because it
has information on how to get a bunch of free stuff, but primarily for
people in the U.K. I took a look, and it's nicely laid out, with the most
recent stuff first and the older stuff near the bottom. He's already
received a bunch of freebies and looks forward to receiving more goodies.
The site is updated daily and has information on things such as free
phones, free sim cards, free t-shirts, and much more. I don't know what it
takes to get that free iPhone 4, but I think Darren is looking into that
Saturday 9 October 2010 - Holiday <--click for more
I just saw a refreshingly good
movie last night. It's called Holiday and stars Cary Grant and Katharine
Hepburn. The basic premise is, boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love,
boy meets girl's sister, etc. However, what makes this a good movie is
that it promotes the idea of "money is not the be all and end all". What
if you could start married life on a holiday of a year or two? Wouldn't it
be a great time to discover life and all the possibilities that lie ahead
of you? While you're still young? Before you get married, make enough
money so that you and new mate can live fairly comfortably for a couple of
years without having to work. Take that time to explore, to notice the
beauty of it all. Don't we all want to do something like that, deep down
inside? Well, I guess not everyone, and that creates the tension in the
film. If you have a chance to check it out, give it a try. It's not as
quick and sharp as the movies of today, but I'm not a great fan of today's
movie-making. Also, it shows the fact that it started life as a play
because it lacks the visuals that you expect from movies. But I don't
care. I like it anyway, and I think a lot of people might also like it.
Give it a chance and let me know what you think.
Friday 8 October 2010 - Speech Machine <--click for more
Ever need to come up with
a speech and have only a day or even less time to work it all out? Never
had to give a speech and find yourself having to give one? What you need
is this free website called Speech
Machine. It makes coming up with a decent speech easy and fun. You can
brainstorm, customize, and publish a speech in only minutes. Even if
you've never given a speech in your life, you can use the point and click
interface on this website to come up with something that will make all the
eyes in the room fix on you as you deliver the goods. Don't believe me?
Visit the site and give it a try. Fill out some names to personalize the
speech. Then, pick the beginning, middle, and end portions of your speech
from a wide variety of examples. Try out several different versions of
each portion of the speech until you find one to your liking. Then, edit
it to make it truly personal. The whole process is easy as pie, and while
you're doing it, the website lets you know the estimated duration of your
speech. This is great. It beats making up a speech completely from
scratch, and if you're just not good at writing, who wants to go through
all that hassle? Like I said, it's completely free, and you'll actually
have fun coming up with just the right speech for the occasion.
Friday 8 October 2010 - Self Directed IRA or 401k? <--click for more
Remember when houses were selling for
more than they were worth? Yeah, the real-estate boom. Self Directed IRAs got big
during that time. But now that housing prices are down and stock are up, it's an
even better time to consider them. Whatever you want, be it an IRA or 401k, check
out CompleteIRA. These guys offer checkbook
control 401k and IRA plans, and have good information showing the differences
Thursday 7 October 2010 - Free High Converting Squeeze Page <--click for more
If you're wondering
what a squeeze page is, this site is probably not for you. A squeeze
page is where someone who wants to market something to you will ask
for some of your details so that information can be sent to you at a future
time. It is one of the most important tools in the online marketer's
arsenal, as building a high-quality list is a must if you want to be a
success. If selling products or services on the Internet is your thing,
this is a really good example of how to set up a squeeze page, and you owe
it to yourself to study how it's done and how you can replicate it for
your own purposes.
Wednesday 6 October 2010 - Enhancing Life's Journey <--click for more
Imagine a website that actually
does its utmost to improve your life, not only physically, but on a
spiritual plane. Man does not life by bread alone, and Satiama can help nurture those parts of you
that may feel ignored by societal norms and current trends. Make money,
live well, do lots of stuff they all say. But what is meant by all of
this? What happened to stopping to smell the roses, or explore those parts
of yourself that may not bring in the cash, but certainly affect your
ability to do so. No matter what you believe, you do have a metaphysical
aspect to your nature, and it needs to be nourished. This amazing website
has hundreds of guest articles, some truly beautiful videos, and an online
store featuring really cool products, including a hugely popular
collection of books for kids and teens. You should really visit this visionary resource and explore what it has
to offer. It has the possibility of changing your perspective. Maybe it
can even change your life.
Wednesday 6 October 2010 - The Wellness Directory NZ <--click for more
I was recently looking for
some medical information, specifically something about homeopathy, and I
encountered The Wellness
Directory NZ. It's a comprehensive information site based in New
Zealand. It includes a list of practioners from many different
specialties. Whether you are into massage, yoga, homeopathy, acupuncture,
or even if you are looking for a chiropractor, this is a great resource
for those of you in New Zealand. But even if you don't live there, there
is plenty of information that applies no matter where you call home. As
for my search for homeopathy
information, they not only describe what it is, but they offer a list
of conditions that it might be helpful in treating. My search was for
something that could help my son's eczema problem. If you find yourself
wanting basic information on various alternative wellness techniques,
you'll find a lot here. There are videos, articles written by registered
practitioners featured here, and much, much more. I can say without a
doubt that it is one of the most comprehensive directories of
health-related information I have seen!
Wednesday 6 October 2010 - Kitchen Cabinet Kings <--click for more
Cabinets can make or break a room's
look. If you've got shabby cabinets, it doesn't matter what you do. Your room is
going to look shabby. Since the kitchen is a major part of any dwelling, the
cabinets there are going to say a lot about the place in general. If you're not
happy with your cabinets, maybe it's time to think about getting new ones. A great
place to start is Kitchen Cabinet Kings. They offer a variety of discount kitchen cabinets and
bathroom vanities, and a gallery where you can see how things will look in the real
world. A design rep will even help you pick the exact right set of cabinets for your
particular situation. And don't worry about quality. This company sells cabinets
that are constructed with all plywood, not that particle board stuff. Order your
cabinets, and you can expect to get them in about 1 to 2 weeks.
Monday 4 October 2010 - Red Skinny Jeans <--click for more
There are plenty of fashion trends
out there. One which catches everyone's eye is Red Skinny Jeans, primarily because they
are bright and very visible in the humglum world of today. While the goth look
lingers, people are starting to utilize brighter more eye-catching colors. And isn't
red the most eye catching color of them all? But where do people get these jeans?
You can look all you want in your local Target or Wal-Mart, but good luck finding a
pair. No, instead, you have to use alternate resources. Want to know where you can
get some? Check out RedSkinnyJeans
where they are reviewed and compared. You'll find sources for both men and women
jeans, plus lots of other things. It's a retro fashion that will take you right back
to 1960s England, and isn't that where you want to be right now, instead of here in
the complicated light of modern technology?
Sunday 3 October 2010 - Wellness Home Biz <--click for more
Who is Wellness Home Biz? It is a
gigantic manufacturing company. You may have never heard of it, but it
actually competes against Proctor & Gamble, Colgate Palmolive, Johnson &
Johnson, Lever Brothers, and other manufacturing companies. They are
unlike Amway/Quixtar, Shaklee, Nuskin, Herbalife, Mary Kay, or Noni-Juice.
They are not an MLM, as they don't inventory, sell, deliver or touch other
people's products. They are a catalog shopping company and people order
through an 800 number or online 24 hours a day. As one of the fastest
growing companies in all of America, they are doing over $900 million in
annual sales and have have had over 100,000 people recently join the
company (that is over 1000 people a day on the average) in the last few
months. If you are looking for great products at Wal-Mart prices, and you
want to make some money to boot, you need to check them out.

It's a story as old as
time itself. People get together. People break up. When it happens to
someone else, it's a story to ponder, maybe even to share with others. But

Friday 1 October 2010 - Living With Small A-cup Breasts <--click for more
OK, I know that this doesn't really pertain
to me, but it does affect a lot of women out there, so I thought I'd put it up. If
you're not happy with the size of your breasts, and you don't want to resort to
surgery or other artificial means of enhancement, you should take a look at this
woman's website. It's a personal breast enhancement
experience through a journal. She shares with you all she had to go through in
order to deal with the situation. It's an intimate journey, and her courage to share
it with others is to be admired.
Thursday 30 September 2010 - Keeping Chickens Newsletter <--click for more
Ever thought about keeping chickens? It's
not as hairbrained as you think. Even if you just have a space in your backyard to keep a
chicken coop, you're almost there. Just make sure your neighbors don't mind if you have
roosters. This website has just about
as much as you'd ever want to know about chickens, and the free newsletter they provide has
been going for 3 years now. Take a look at a free issue and see for yourself
what a jam-packed resource it is. With today's economy, being even slightly more
self-sufficient is a great asset, and if chicken is to your liking, well, consider the
benefits of keeping them.
Monday 27 September 2010 - Honor The Date <--click for more
Quick. Think of a date that is important to
you. Of course there's your birthday, anniversary, and maybe even the birthdays of your loved
ones. But have you ever considered how many more you can celebrate? Or future dates like
vacations, weddings and retirement that you'd like to share with the world. That's the idea
behind HonorTheDate.com which offers mugs,
t-shirts, caps, and more with each date of the year printed on these items. Some folks wear
them to honor a birthday (their own or some special to them). Others buy them for
accountability (letting the world know you are quitting smoking or starting a diet on say
March 1 or any other date). A few companies have bought the t-shirts for their staff with the
launch date of their new product (to keep everyone on track). Whatever your reason for celebrating
a particular date, this company has some great products for making it happen with the visibility
you want. Check out their whole line of products at their website.

eCovers, whether they be for eBooks or videos, or whatever you need a cover for. The best part
of all of this is, your eCover is only going to cost you $37. That's a great deal for an
eCover, because people usually charge a lot more. Plus, he'll work with you to make sure you
are satisfied with the design. And even at the very end, if you're still not satisfied, you
get your money back.

Have you ever had the need to capture an
online video or audio while it was playing? There are some pieces of software that can allow
you to do that, but none of them have the power of Replay Media Catcher. If it's online, this

music as mp3, record a Skype conversation, grab streaming video and audio such as podcasts,
radio shows, XM and Sirius programming. You name it, this software can capture it. It can also

file is in a format of your choosing. Download a free trial copy and see for yourself how

Friday 24 September 2010 - Jody Coyote Earrings <--click for more
Who exactly is Jody Coyote? Legend has it that
she's a woman from Oregon who started crafting handmade earrings back in the 1970s. She was a
larger than life legend back in those days, mostly because there really was no person by the
name of Jody Coyote. At least, no one by that name who crafted handmade earrings in the
Pacific Northwest. Jody Coyote was a brilliant marketing gimmick devised by an Oregonian
businessman. But one thing is true: the earrings that have been produced all these years are
very cool. Especially nice are the handmade niobium earrings. They are
light, easy to wear, brilliantly colored, and hypoallergenic because they contain no nickel.
The JCEarrings.com website specializes in vintage
Jody Coyote earrings, and their selection is vast. Check them out if you'd like to get a pair
of something that is not your run-of-the-mill, either for yourself or for a gift.
Wednesday 22 September 2010 - Cheap Cigars Anyone? <--click for more
I'm not a super huge fan of smoking, but I do love a
good pipe of tobacco or a nice cigar every once in a while. It's a private pleasure. My goal
is to one day own a smoking jacket and a really nice chair to put in my library/den so I can
go there every once in a while and light up a really nice smoke and just relax the stress of
the day away. Smoking can be an expensive proposition, so it's important to find a good source
of quality product at an affordable price. That's what Cigar
Worlds offers. They offer reviews of the best cigars available, and the prices waver
around the $5 mark. Expect to pay anywhere from $4 to $6.50 for each cigar you purchase.
Ah yes, nothing better than a good cigar, a glass of jack, and a fine book...
Wednesday 22 September 2010 - Search Engine Optimization <--click for more
I'm always on the lookout for ideas on how to make
my website more visible, so I've frequently taken a look at search engine optimization, also
known as SEO. Those three letters spark fear in the hearts of weaker souls. People talk SEO
like they know all about it. And then you dig a little deeper, and you realize they know just
about as much as you do, maybe even less. Not with London SEO Expert. In my journeys to find more
information, I ran across their website, mostly lured in by the Free SEO Report. They actually know
what they're doing, and if you look at the contents of their website, you'll find lots of
useful material and information, not a lot of fluff. If you are based in the UK, or more
specifically, London, this is a great resource for you. But even if you're in Timbuktu, they
can still help you. In any case, you'll get a lot of use from the free resources here, and
don't forget to sign up for their free report. You won't regret it.
Tuesday 21 September 2010 - Monitored Medical Alert Systems <--click for more
Do you or someone you know have mobility
issues? Or maybe you live alone and might need assistance in the event of an
accident. If this is the case, you should check out True Med Alert. If you
are familiar with the "I've fallen and I can't get up" commercials, you know exactly
what I mean. These devices are true life savers. Some people may make fun of the
commercial, but the problem is serious and more frequent than you realize. A friend
of mine's mother fell walking to the kitchen from her bedroom. She ended up
fracturing her ankle and could not move. The pain was almost unbearable as she sat
there on the floor waiting for someone to come home. Fortunately, it was only 15 or
so minutes, but what if it was all day? The nice thing about the devices from this

spur you on to continue your weight loss plan. Try it without risk for 14 days and only pay

Friday 17 September 2010 - The Green Moving Box <--click for more
There's only one thing worse than having to
help someone move, and that is helping someone else to move right afterwards. It
must be my fate. I just recently helped my sister-in-law move from here to Texas,
which meant packing up her one bedroom apartment. I really had no idea how much
stuff could accumulate in a tiny one bedroom apartment over the course of 3 years.
It was a lot, and finding boxes to pack everything up was a chore. And of course,
there's the feeling guilty part, guilty that you're contributing to the clearcutting
of the rainforest with each set of boxes you buy from the moving store or WalMart.
OK, maybe they make some of the box from recycled material, but you can never know
exactly how much. If only I had found The Green
Moving Box company before all of this. They will rent you moving boxes made from
100% recycled plastic for your residential and office moves. And these are not
cheesy boxes. They are extremely sturdy and easy to stack. They'll deliver the boxes
1 week before your move and then arrange to pick them up 1 week after you get to
your destination. It's a great idea, and I really like the fact that their boxes can
be reused 500 times before they can no longer be used. Have you ever tried reusing a
cardboard box? Maybe twice and it starts falling apart. These really are green moving boxes and I heartily recommend them.

Thursday 16 September 2010 - Pink Guitars <--click for more
I went to my local Guitar Center the
other day to pick up some strings for my old Epiphone acoustic guitar. It had been a
while since I last ventured into a music store, so I was surprised at how flashy
instruments had become. As a matter of fact, they were really trying to go beyond
the plain, with lines of guitars in different shades and different shapes. It was
kind of amazing. And then I found this web site called Pink Guitars that offered nothing but, you
guessed it, pink guitars. We're talking electric guitars, acoustic guitars, guitars
for children, and even guitar accessories. Yeah, it's a niche, but it might actually
be a really big niche. After all, have you seen how many products are located in the
"pink" aisle at your local Target store? You know which aisle I mean. It's the one
with all the Barbie and Barbie-like products. There's a definite market out there,
and I think this site has found it.
Thursday 16 September 2010 - Toy of the Decade? <--click for more
Check out Toy of The Decade. It
promises to tell you about the most amazing toy that's debuting on September 30th.
It doesn't tell you much, but it gives a few clues, and if you are the least bit
curious (and you know you are), you'll want to visit the web site. They offer clues that are
available from Twitter and FaceBook, and they even have clues on the web site. Wow,
a toy that will have an impact on climate change? How cool is that? Personally, I
hope it's not the next Pet Rock or Breeding Sand. My guess is it's something that's
very cool and maybe retro, something that you or maybe even your kids will want to
play with all the time. You know you're curious, so go check them out!
Monday 13 September 2010 - Elite eBook Design <--click for more
Planning on writing an eBook? If so,
you need to give some thought to the cover. There's that old adage that a book is
judged by its cover. This is especially true in the electronic world, where people
try to get an impression of your book simply by gazing at its cover on some website.
What you present to them is important, so a good looking eBook Design is essential. It needs to
evoke professionalism and give the reader a good sense of what the book is about.
You've spent a good chunk of time writing a book, so don't skimp on the cover. Make
it really good. Make it as good as the contents of your book. Elite eBook Design will deliver you the
design your book truly deserves.
Monday 13 September 2010 - Hugo de Figueredo <--click for more
My friend in the UK is looking for a new
designer to help him revamp his website. He found Hugo de Figueredo, a designer in Switzerland.
He wanted me to tell him what I thought. I took a look at the website and the first
thing that caught my eye was the wide variety of work he has done. He deals with
XHTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, and more. And the websites he's done already are quite
impressive. He speaks French, English, and Portuguese, so communication is not a
problem. I told my friend that if his rates were decent, Hugo looks like a really
good designer that I myself would use. I would rate him a really good choice for any
web work, as his eye for design is sharp.
Sunday 12 September 2010 - Fisher-Price Learning Toys <--click for more
Remember the toys from your childhood? I still
remember some of mine. I got a lot of junk when I was a kid, but I also got some toys that
endured the test of time. You know the ones I mean. They were the ones that you went back to
after you tired of the new ones you just got. More likely than not, the name of the toy would
be Fisher-Price. That's because they know how to make toys that kids really want to play with.
Child Learning Toys not only
exercise the body, they also exercise the mind. They give kids a reason to play that becomes
exciting and fun. They don't just follow the movie lines from their favorite tv characters.
They actually interact with the toys, which in many cases, have no television or movie tie-in.
Check out the toys on the Fisher-Price Learning Toys website.
Maybe you'll see some blasts from the past. And if you wonder why they've lasted this long,
well maybe because they're good toys.

serious competition yet, I recently discovered a new web site with some of the latest and
greatest information regarding new tablet pc products coming out or that have just been
recently released. There's a news section, rumours section, and general information about most
of the currently available tablet pc's and ebook readers out there. If you are looking for a

They say that one of the best ways to promote your site is to have really good content. One of
the ways to have really good content is to have relevant articles on your website, but writing
articles is time-consuming and also takes basic writing skills. Not all of us are blessed with
the ability to write cool articles, so where can one turn? There are plenty of places on the
Internet where you can get free articles, and one I've just discovered is a site called Play It Forward, a free articles site where you can
submit your own articles or use the articles that have already been published. Articles are
available in many different categories and the site includes reviews, how-to's, guides, etc.
If you are looking for content, you will probably find it here. A tag cloud shows you the
current popular keywords, and there's a list of the latest 50 articles on the main page of the

everything from Business to Wedding Receptions. Check out the available articles. You'll
probably find exactly what you're looking for in order to round out the content of your latest
Monday 6 September 2010 - Learning Modern Meditation <--click for more
It seems like we live in a time where our days
become more and more stressful, no matter what we try. Welcome to the modern era. No matter
what we do, it just feels like there too big of a load to deal with and no matter how much we
think we're whittling down the list of things that need to get done, the list just keeps
getting bigger and bigger. What ever happened to being able to simply stop and smell the
roses? Can that kind of feeling even apply anymore? Of course it can. No matter what life
hands you, if you don't watch yourself, you're going to burn out and not be any good to
anyone. Meditation might help you in times like this. There's a great website that teaches you
how to meditate in a very practical manner. It's called Learning Modern Meditation and was
developed by Mike Skinner, whose picture you see above. The techniques used are easy, well
written, and absolutely free. No need to take months of exclusive time to learn any of this.
Fit it right into your busy modern lifestyle. And one of the really nice parts of the site is
the ability to contribute your own web pages which can then get published on the site. Share
your experiences or techniques with others. And if you'd like to go even further, enjoy the
book reviews and input from other readers.

Need Windows-based web hosting? Why not try
cloud hosting. Cloud is the big buzzword these days. Everything is in the cloud. What exactly
is cloud hosting? Ask 10 people and you might get 10 different answers. Basically, it's
virtual hosting that exists in a cloud composed of many different servers. The hosting exists
in the cloud and not on a specific server. This gives you the redundancy you need plus the
ability to scale your needs up or down depending on circumstance. If you need more resources,
they can be dynamically added. Need more RAM or CPU or hard disk space? No problem. Cloud Hosting gives you the flexibility and power to take
on any hosting project no matter how big it grows, and Pay
Per Cloud is a great choice if you are looking for Windows-based Cloud Computing.

Unless you've been living under a
rock for the past few years, you know who Lil Wayne is. That's the stage name for
Dwayne Michael Carter. He was born in New Orleans, LA and was a truly gifted
performer who went on to sell millions of records as a rap star. Interestingly, he
cited the rock band Nirvana as one of his major influences. There's a site that
specializes in selling Lil Wayne Posters
and you can find some pretty great deals there. Check it out. An interesting tidbit:
He doesn't go by the name Dwayne because that's the name of his dad, and since they
have no relationship, he didn't want to give him any credit, so he dropped the 'd'.

If you have a heavy construction company,
medical practice, or professional service company, and you are based in the New York
Metropolitan area, you need to find a good source for New York Computer Consulting. You don't need a
national company or an international company. You need a company that knows your
area, your specialties, and exactly what it takes to run the IT part of your
business. Zbrella is one such company. They offer
computer consulting in the New York City metropolitan area. Zbrella focuses on data
backup, electronic medical records, EMR systems, and computer systems for heavy
construction companies and construction job sites. Many companies are now
outsourcing their IT needs. It's sometimes too difficult to keep up with how quickly
things change, and maintaining a full-time person to work on it may not be
cost-effective. Consider an IT consulting company when IT support becomes a burden
and takes away from the main goal of your company, which is to provide an excellent
experience for your customers.

Know you need to start thinking about
investing for your future but don't know exactly where to start? Treading the murky
waters of investment options is risky business. No one wants to be another Bernie
Madoff victim. Besides yourself, who can you really trust? How about a company that
doesn't promise inflated claims and actually delivers the goods? What you need is a
really good investment advisor.
Portfolio Solutions is a low fee investment advisor that follows a tight fisted, low
fee, low cost strategy to keep money invested. Portfolio solutions aims to capture
market returns at the lowest possible cost. What that means to you is, solid returns
and little risk. The financial market may take years to completely recover. And many
companies will come and go. What you need is a company that's been through the
roughest part of the financial downturn and not only survived, but survived well.
This is one of those companies.
Thursday 2 September 2010 - EMR Electronic Medical Records Software <--click for more
We live in the 21st century. At least, that's what I thought last time I checked.
However, there appears to be a lot of the world that is still living in a part of
the dark ages where businesses or organizations still exchange information the old
fashioned way - by carrier pigeon. What happened to the great paperless society we
were supposed to find ourselves in? If you ask me, I think we generate more paper
today than ever before. EMR Software,
powered by Microsoft Office and provided by Glostream, is trying to change that, at
least for the medical profession. I find it kind of odd that for a lot of medical
practices, there is no clearcut solution for exchanging information. EMR systems are
now mandated by the federal government, who is providing stimulus incentive money
for doctors to adopt EMR systems. So, really, there is no excuse for your doctor or
any doctor to adopt new technology and start living in the 21st century with you.
Maybe they won't go back to making housecalls, but at least they'll be able to have
quick access to your records and know exactly what they are doing without looking
for a manila folder that may or may not have that latest test result.

Salvia Divinorum is a plant that grows
mostly in the Mazateca region of Mexico. Usually smoked, chewed, or brewed, its main
purpose is to give its user an altered state of consciousness. In other words, you
trip on it. Unlike marijuana, which is illegal in almost all parts of the USA,
Salvia Divinorum is legal most places. There are 13 states in the US that prohibit
its use, but that means that it's mostly fine to use in the other states. Like
alcohol, the effects of this plant should only be experienced in a safe place, such
as your home. Definitely do not drive or do anything dangerous. Like most drugs, the
trips you can take differ based on the quantity and potency you use. If you would
like to learn more about it, visit the Salvia Divinorum Information website.

Friday 27 August 2010 - The Blog of Brendan Pickering <--click for more
I've just started twittering. You know, Twitter, that
social web thing that everyone seems to be using these days? There are lot of interesting
people on there, twittering away their lives, or least doing their best to describe what's
happening in their lives in what appears to be real-time. How it works is, you try to find
people that have interests that you like or write about stuff you like or maybe have the
same gripes as you do. Then, you follow them so you can see what they write about all day.
I've found a few interesting people so far. One is Brendan Pickering. You can visit his twitter
page Here. Like me, he likes entrepreneurship and
coca-cola. Unlike me, he likes baseball. Like me, he's been in the USA and Canada. Unlike
me, he's been to India. And also unlike me, he has 70 followers and I have 2. And I'm not
quite sure how I got those 2. Brendan's tweets are interesting, so I've become one of his
followers, which means I get a tweet everytime he writes something. Sounds kind of strange
doesn't it? If you don't know twitter, it almost sounds fanatical. But you know what?
Sometimes the tweets from people are way more interesting than any soap opera you can watch
on tv, and maybe you'll learn something. Like that Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek TNG)
is one of his followers. How cool is that?

If you are suffering from sugar addiction, you should check out Conquer Sugar Cravings.
This plan is not about banishing sugar from your diet. There are dozens,
maybe hundreds of varieties of sugar found in our food, and not all of them

rice, and whole grains provide vital nutrients and energy that everyone needs
to grow and stay healthy.
This plan is about getting rid of the unhealthy
sugars like the ones that are killing you - the ones that keep you from
having the energy to care for your family, or even to stay awake after
dinner. Things like table sugar, high-fructose corn syrup, and the highly
refined carbohydrates you find in white bread and pasta.

consider a duvet. What is a duvet? Well, it's just another way of saying comforter. A duvet is
usually stuffed with down (bird feathers), which insulates really well. With a proper duvet,
there's no getting cold at night and very little need to put on layers upon layers of
blankets. To keep a duvet clean, you should use a duvet cover. They keep your duvet clean and
act as a barrier between you and possible allergens in the duvet itself. And it is much easier
to wash or replace a duvet cover. For more information on duvet covers, visit this helpful website.
Tuesday 24 August 2010 - Cool Kids Rooms <--click for more
When I was growing up, I had my
own room, and I had dreams of decorating it like the inside of a treehouse, complete
with wooden walls and vines hanging off of them. Of course, my mom did not
appreciate my thoughts on the matter, and I got racecar wallpaper instead. Oh, well.
Times have changed and now having a treehouse motif doesn't sound all that crazy. As
a matter of fact, having a really cool room is a dream that may actually come true
for kids these days. Check out Cool Kids
Rooms for ideas on what is possible. The site has some really great ideas for
decorating kids rooms, no matter the age range and no matter if it's a boy or girl,
or even an infant or toddler. They have lots of photographs of sample rooms and
suggestions for choosing colors, wall designs, and how to decorate windows. If you
want ideas for decorating a kids room, this is a site you have to visit.
Monday 23 August 2010 - SmartSmoker <--click for more
Have you heard of the electronic cigarette? It's a device that looks like
a real cigarette. You can inhale and get a buzz from the nicotine cartridge. You can even blow
"smoke rings". It looks and feels just like the real thing. But it's a lot cleaner. It doesn't
create real smoke, and what you inhale is a rather safe vapor that doesn't do the damage smoke
from real cigarettes can cause. As a matter of fact, if you are looking for a way to kick the
cigarette habit, these electronic cigarettes may be just what you are looking for. You get the
nicotine delivery without the downsides of a real cigarette. Also, they are legal to use in
places that cigarettes aren't allowed, such as bars, restaurants, etc. Want the plain tobacco
taste? Not a problem. How about menthol? You can get a cartridge for that as well. Each
cartridge lasts the equivalent of 10 to 15 cigarettes, and a pack of 10 cartridges is $18, so
it's even less expensive than smoking real cigarettes. I used to smoke when I was younger, and
I recently tried one of these electronic cigarettes, and you know what? It gives you all the
pleasure of smoking without any of the nasty side-effects. If you're looking for a better
alternative to real cigarettes, you've got a real option here.

Sunday 22 August 2010 - Turks and Caicos Islands <--click for more
I probably mentioned
earlier that one of my coworkers is going to a wedding in another state. Offhand, I asked him
if the bride and groom are going on a honeymoon, and he said yes, to a place called Turks and Caicos Islands. Huh? I've
never heard of it. Where is it exactly, I asked him. He didn't have a clue, either. So, I
looked it up on Google Maps:
View Larger Map
Scrolling out in
Google Maps, I saw that it was due north of Haiti. OK. Cool, I thought. Sounds like a really
nice place to go for a honeymoon. Especially after I read all about it here. Sounds like a perfect place to
take a Caribbean Vacation. Take a look at this Picture Blog for some great pictures,
and some nice insight on island life. I'm seriously thinking about a vacation there myself. It
sounds too good to pass up.

My son, the PowerPoint master just got off the
phone with the lead on his latest project. They need to share that nifty PowerPoint
presentation he just created with someone who doesn't have PowerPoint. And they need to do it
tonight. OK, time for PowerShow.com, a free
site for uploading, viewing, and sharing PowerPoint presentations. Check out this cool presentation for an
example of a PowerPoint show that is being shared right now.
Saturday 21 August 2010 - Templates for PowerPoint <--click for more
My son is doing a project for work which requires a presentation. He has access to Microsoft
PowerPoint, so that part of the problem is solved. The issue now is finding decent templates
to use for his presentation. This wasn't a problem for him, as he finds things quite easily on
the Internet, easier than me. He showed me a website with Royalty-free
PowerPoint templates and backgrounds that worked quite nicely for him. I look and saw that
they have over 20,000 templates to choose from, in a wide variety of categories from Animals
to Technology and a whole lot in between. Need a template that covers handshakes? They got it.
How about different holidays? They got those, too. If you need to liven up your presentations,
this is a really great place to go for templates. It's only $99/year to dowload as many
templates as you want. There's even a custom template option. And they have a template finder
you can download for free to use to find the exact template you are looking for.
Saturday 21 August 2010 - Bonsai Fun <--click for more
I don't have a green thumb. As a matter of
fact, I'd say my thumb was a shade of gray with a blotch of brown thrown in for good
measure. Because of this, I've never been very good at growing plants. Not that I
haven't tried. I gave it the college try in my school days, but I ended up throwing
out just about every plant I bought. One thing that always fascinated me was bonsai.
It was like having a miniature version of your favorite tree right on your desktop.
And I'm not talking about screensavers. Check out Bonsai Gardening
Secrets to get an idea of how cool it can be. This site claims to have the
secrets of growing bonsai with very little effort. I'm all for very little effort.

My co-worker is going out of state to another wedding. All of his friends have been
getting married. I guess it's that time of life for them, all twenty-somethings.
I've been married for 20 years now, and the last wedding I went to was a few years
back. I remembered they had some pretty cool wedding favors for all the guests. When
I asked about them, I found out they were all hand-made by the bride's mom. Wow.
That must have taken a lot of effort, but they really added a nice personal touch to

Friday 20 August 2010 - Recycling Made Painless <--click for more
I've never been very good at recycling.
And I kind of resent the fact that my trash company charges me to recycle things.
Shouldn't I get money for things I recycle? Or, shouldn't it at least be free? I
found a really cool site online called ecycler. It
basically connects discarders with collectors. If you have stuff to give away, you
are a discarder. If you want to collect stuff, you are a collector. Makes sense,
right? Instead of giving your recyclable items to the trash company, who charges you
for the privilege, why not give them away to someone who can then turn in the
recyclables for some extra cash. It's a win-win situation. You get your stuff taken
away for free, and someone else benefits from it. What's not to like about this
Friday 20 August 2010 - SEO Services <--click for more
So, my only problem is, I don't have any time. I have so little time, it's not even
funny. I want to do some SEO on my websites, and I'd like to learn how to do it
myself, but I just haven't got enough free time in the day. I asked around, and I
got a few places I could try that offers SEO services, so now I am checking out
packages. This company, SKG
Technologies, offers three basic packages to choose from. The nice thing about
their services is, they tell you exactly what they are going to do, and it appears
to cover all bases. They clean up your on-page SEO by making sure you have sitemaps,
a valid robots.txt file, etc. Then, they do off-page SEO by submitting your site to
different directories and writing articles based on the content on your site and
submitting them to various article submission sites. They even rewrite the articles
for each site, so they appear different in the eyes of google and other search
engines. Yes, you could do all of these things yourself, if you have the time. But a
quote on their website pretty much sums it up: "One rule of action more important
than all others consists in never doing any that someone else can do for you." And
that, my friends, was from former US president Calvin Coolidge. So, yes, I want to
give them all of my SEO-related work, so I don't have to deal with it.
Friday 20 August 2010 - Inside Greg's Mind <--click for more
I've got several sites set up right now
that I'm trying to make money with. Whether it be by posting other people's advertisements or
by trying to persuade people to try and/or buy a product, you can't get much done without
having visits to your site. How do you get visits? One of the buzzwords today is SEO. OK,
maybe it's not an actual word. It's an acronym that stands for search engine optimization.
It's the art of making your site score visits from people all over the Internet. And, I just
found a great place with all sorts of information on SEO. It's called Inside Greg's Mind and has loads of valuable
information on not only how to get listed on search engines but also get bumped up to position
number one for the keywords you want to target. I've signed up for the newsletter, which looks
like it's going to be providing lots of cool insights. And I'm in the process of going over
all the tips, tricks, and techniques on the website. It's definitely already come in handy,
and I've learned a few things that I didn't know before. Also, I should be getting a free
ebook shortly, which I am really looking forward to reading.
Friday 20 August 2010 - Social Steals <--click for more
I'm always looking for a good
bargain. How does up to 80% off sound? Certainly sounds good to me. There is a site called www.socialsteals.com
that offers just that. It doesn't cost anything. Just sign up with your email address and zip
code, and you'll be delivered new deals all the time. You get offers like discounts at
restaurants, bars, places that feature various activities, you name it. The deals change
daily, and the site is rapidly expanding. It's worth a visit every day to see what new deals
will be featured. It's like a box of chocolates: you just never know what you are going to get
Thursday 19 August 2010 - Pop Up Campers <--click for more
When I was younger, so much younger than today, my dad
told me about an opportunity I wish I had taken advantage of. The government was giving away
land. All you had to do was homestead it for a period of time. I forget exactly what the
requirements were, but it sounded like a great idea. Settle on some land and make a go of it.
He had an idea of getting a decent car and a trailer of some kind and roughing it. We went to
a boat and rv show and he showed me exactly what he thought would work. It was a pop up camper that you could attach to the
back of your vehicle. As soon as you got to where you wanted to hang out, you magically
expanded the camper, and it turned into something that you could actually sleep in, dine in,
etc. Had I really listened to him, I'd probably be the proud of owner of about 40 acres of
land somewhere in Montana or Alaska...
I recently found a site that talks about the pop up
camper phenomenon in great detail. You can view it at Pop-Up-ing. If you've ever wanted to know
all about the lifestyle surrounding this type of camping or living, it's a great site with
lots of valuable information. You can find stories that have been submitted by other readers
about their own experiences. Do you have a story to share? You can post it and have your
viewpoint available for all to see.

Hey, looking for a bit
of fun? Check out I Dropped My Apple. It's a
website featuring a collection of horror stories from people who have dropped their Apple
products, such as iPhones, iPods, and such. It includes a nice articles section with helpful information
on such things as how to repair a cracked screen on an iPhone. It even includes tips for non
Apple products, such as the Zune. I don't have an iPod myself, but my son let his mp3 player
slip out of his pocket and into the toilet when he leaned over too far, so I can relate to
some of the stories on this website.
Thursday 19 August 2010 - The Vintage Revolution <--click for more
My nephew from Seattle is coming to visit my older boys today. Last time he was here, he was
wearing one of those sherpa hats, and I'm kind of wondering what he's going to be wearing this
time. He likes retro clothing, and I guess I don't really blame him because a lot of it is
very comfortable and easy to wear. Check out the collection of scene clothing from The Vintage Revolution. When my older boys
tell me that someone is "so emo" I now kinda get what they mean. I used to wear military
fatigues when I was their age, so I guess we all have styles and trends we go through...
Thursday 19 August 2010 - Office Space in Bracknell <--click for more
My friend Darren has a web hosting company in the UK. Although he lives in Essex, his servers
are located in London. He's been deliberating over an expansion possibility and has looked at
office space in and around London. It would mean a move there for him, but it would be much
more convenient since he would be closer to the servers he manages. He's been looking at offices in Bracknell, which is
conveniently located near Heathrow Airport. It also features regular train service to London.
He wanted me to take a look at their website, which I did. It's amazingly slick, with animated
maps and very nice nagivation. The presentation makes this business park look not only
attractive but desirable. They have some heavy-duty companies there already, including Novell
and Braodcom. What better place to hobnob with the Internet elite and maybe score a few new

My mom just got one of those old-fashioned
ranges to replace her existing one. She bought it at a garage sale and spent several
afternoons cleaning it up. It's kind of beautiful. Like something out of a 50s
movie. However, she needs to get a new range hood for it. Of course, she wanted me
to do the research on range hoods, so I complied. And I found this website on range hoods. The ones they have there
are very nice looking. I'm just going to have to browse and see if I can find one
that matches her existing kitchen decor, and also her budget.
Tuesday 17 August 2010 - Make Free Invitations <--click for more
My daughter wants to have a
party and invite her friends over before school starts. The last time she
printed out invitations, she used a website that created them with
prodigious use of pink, and it sucked the ink dry out of our printer. I
told her that if she wanted to do invites again, she would have to talk to
me first. So, she talked to me and I had to find a better site than the
princess site she was using, so after investigating for a while, I found a
site that features free invitations to
print or email. There are a bunch of categories to choose from, and
she immediately found the one called "Children Party" and was downloading
a pdf file and printing out invitations in no time. I took my own look at
the site and couldn't believe how many different types of free templates
were available. Sometimes, the best things in life are really free.
Monday 16 August 2010 - Digital Photography <--click for more
I'm trying to get back into
photography. In my younger days, I used to shoot roll after roll of film and even develop it
myself. Nowadays, you can shoot as many pictures as you want, and it doesn't cost you a dime
in film or developing chemicals or paper. Well, maybe paper and ink if you want to print them
out. But if you just display them on your web site, you can really do it for very little cost.
I have a digital camera. It's one of those Nikon Coolpix models. It works fine, but I just
don't use it much. To get me motivated, I did a quick search for a website that catered to
digital photography and found a really nice one called Digital Photography Tricks. It was done
by someone who really wants to share his tricks and techniques for taking really good digital
shots. Lots of example of photographic techniques are given, including some really nice
resulting images. If you're interested in photography, give this site a look.
Monday 16 August 2010 - Poster Art on the Cheap <--click for more
My little kids are in the process of redecorating their
room. Right now, the walls are bare and in need of something. Looking online, I found a bunch
of poster sites, some of them with unbelievably low-priced posters. Can you really trust
something that only costs $1? I kept searching. I didn't mind paying extra, but I wanted to
make sure the product had quality. I finally came across a very nice cheap posters store with reasonable prices and what
looks like very good quality posters. The prices go anywhere from $5 (with rebates) to $15,
but they are not cheap prints that will fade within a year. They even sell movies and have a
clearance corner where you can buy things for up to 80% off. Check them out!

I'm not an especially great dessert
maker. My wife has some great recipes for desserts that got passed down from her
side of the family, including some very luscious Italian pastries and some downhome
recipes most likely concocted by some ancestor not too long ago. As for my side, I
didn't get much of anything passed down. However, I just discovered a great site
with dessert recipes that you can try
out. They've got recipes for everything from cake to biscotti to mousse and
brownies. Looking for a perfect cookie recipe? Have guests coming over next week?
Find a great fudge recipe. The list is almost endless. I hope you have as much fun
with this site as I did.

It's never too
early to start planning for Christmas. Ever had problems trying to think
of just the right present for some people on your list? Wouldn't it be
great if there were a site that had present suggestions categorized by
gender, age, and maybe even pocketbook? Well, look no more. Great Christmas Presents is
just such a site. You can find tons of ideas for absolutely everyone on
your list, plus maybe some great ideas for yourself... You'll find the top
gift ideas for 2010, and the categories include presents for children,
teenagers, men, and women. What a great idea.
Saturday 14 August 2010 - Palm Springs California Real Estate <--click for more
My mom has a friend whose mom lives in Palm Springs. She is thinking of moving to Palm Springs
to be near her own mom, so since I am always considered the Internet expert in the family, I
was asked to find a real estate agent in the Palm Springs area. So, I did. And believe you me,
there are plenty of agents there, as it still appears to be a good market, even in this
current climate. After much research, I came across Karen Stearns who makes her living selling
Palm Springs California Real Estate. We're talking
about houses that are over a half million dollars. She's been in the business over 25 years
and sells everything from condos to luxury homes. My mom's friend is looking for a condo, so
I'm going to put her in touch if she's serious about moving there.
Saturday 14 August 2010 - Cakes, cakes, and more cakes <--click for more
Do you like cakes? I certainly like cakes.
I'm not a big fan of heavily frosted cakes, but I do like the insides. I can't make up my mind
whether I like the insides with cream or fruit between the layers. They're both so good! If
you want to check out a website with all sorts of cakes, including wedding cakes and cakes of
unusual design, you've got to check out The Cake
Channel. I don't think I've seen so many cakes in one place before. And I never knew you
could top your cake with some of the things they are suggesting. How about a gazebo, or your
favorite type of pet (not the real kind but some sort of miniature porcelain facsimile). Or,
maybe you'd like to put a castle on the top of your cake. The possibilities are endless. There
are photo galleries, access to design videos, and much more. You can even submit pictures of
your own cakes. This is a great place to get an idea for a cake you need for a special event.
Saturday 14 August 2010 - Buying a laptop for yourself or your family <--click for more
As some of you already know, I'm in the process of researching a new laptop for
myself. My old Apple iBook G3 is in its last minutes of life, and I need to replace
it soon. I don't really want to replace it with another Apple, as I just don't have
that kind of money, so I'm willing to buy a Windows-based one. To help me with my
research, I found a place called
Laptop Computers Wiz. It's a really nice site, as it has unbiased, brand
independent reviews. They don't favor a particular manufacturer over another. You'll
find dozens of pages of information on everything from whta type of laptop is best
for your needs to how much you should spend based on your need level. Do you need
something right now? They recommend going out and buying the cheapest laptop you can
find. But if you have a bit more flexibility, they go through the ins and outs of
how to make your decision.
Saturday 14 August 2010 - SalsaBootCamp <--click for more
My wife has been wanting me to take her dancing. Um,
I'm not the greatest dancer. Actually, I think the last time we really danced was at our
wedding over 20 years ago. She wants to do something like square dancing or line dancing or
maybe even salsa. Ok, I said. I'll look into it. After browsing the web, I came up with dance lessons you can do in the privacy of your own
home. I figure, if I practice at home, I'll look less like a fool when we actually do go out
dancing. So, now I'm committed to taking salsa
lessons and bringing her out on a dancing date. My next step will be to find a place to
show off my moves. And you know what? I'm kind of actually looking forward to it!

When I was younger, I played frisbee a
lot. We lived near a huge park with a lot of space, and I had several friends who
liked frisbee as well, so we had lots of fun. Now I can live vicariously through
this frisbee site, a place that features a
really large collection of, you guessed it, ultimate frisbee videos. And if you're
interested in taking your frisbee playing to a higher level, there's an online store
where you can purchase super high quality frisbees. How serious are you? If you
still have that frisbee from your junior high days, then maybe you should go visit

Do you consider yourself a fairly good writer? Do you have a handle on the basics of
English grammar? Are you looking for a place to share content with other writers?
Then you might want to take a look at the Freelance Writers Club. When you are
looking at ways to drive traffic to your site, one of the obvious choices is
well-written articles. You can write them yourself, or you can have someone else
write them for you. And you want the articles to not only appear on your website but
also at external sites with links going back to your website. That gives you higher
search engine rankings with Google. This club was created to give freelance writers
a place to share not only their work, but also ideas and information related to
using articles as a way to drive traffic to websites. There is a lot of information
here, and if you have any interest in getting more hits on your own site, you owe it
to yourself to check them out.

it first came out, it later became a classic. Well, Monalle touts itself as the Positive Thinking Playground. It offers positive, uplifing,
inspiring, and empowering multi-media materials delivered on a daily basis. If you want a good
website on which to start your day, you might want to bookmark this one. You'll find cool new

Thursday 12 August 2010 - Natural Testosterone Replacement! <--click for more
On my many visits to the inner realms of the Internet, I recently found an
interesting website that teaches men how to increase testosterone levels naturally.
The site owner, who suffered from low testosterone himself, recommends seven, over
the counter libido supplements, that men should cycle on a daily basis.
His theory is, that when you cycle a supplement and take it only one day per week,
the product works much more effectively.
On the other hand, if you use any supplement, day in and day out, you'll quickly
build up a tolerance, and it will stop working entirely for you.
I haven't tried his cycling system myself, but I do have to say, it's sounds
interesting, and the reviews on the website are extremely positive.

Thursday 12 August 2010 - Constant Quest for Shirts <--click for more
On my constant quest for personalized items of clothing, I
ran across another website that does custom
t-shirts. And let me tell you something. I am impressed. This company was
started in 2006 by some classmates who shared a common thread of being in the same
tennis club. They wanted to make some t-shirts for their club, but they couldn't
find a local company to do the work at a decent price. So, one of them decided to
start his own t-shirt printing company, focusing on print quality and good customer
service. Their prices are extremely reasonable, and they offer free shipping if
you're not in a hurry. You can also get rush shipping if you need it sooner. And one
really nice thing is, you can design your shirt right online with their easy-to-use
design lab. It's very cool, and you get a great idea of what the final result is
going to look like. They're a California-based company with a telephone number and
good customer service, and from what I've seen on the web, they do a quality job.
They've been printing t-shirts and other items of clothing, such as sweatshirts and
athletic pants, for four years now, so they must be doing something right. I'm
impressed. Check out ooShirts for more
Wednesday 11 August 2010 - Magazine Subscriptions <--click for more
Someone said that
magazines were dead. Long live magazines! I still read them. It's certainly easier
to take a magazine into the restroom than your laptop, so if you think you can get
all you want from your computer, you're plain wrong. I buy single issues of
magazines that interest me and stick them in the magazine holder in the bathroom at
home. But that gets expensive, so I've been thinking about getting a subscription to
the magazines I really enjoy. I found this magazine subscriptions site online, and they've
got quite a decent collection to choose from. And prices are reasonable, certainly a
lot less than what you would pay for single issues. I'm thinking about subscribing
to National Geographic Traveler. Nothing better than fantasizing about cool places
to go while you're resting in the restroom...

keep track of your kids and guests when they all have the same cool tshirt on?
Tuesday 10 August 2010 - Making money on fiverr <--click for more
I ran across a site called Fiverr where people
will do numerous things for five bucks. You know, things like install software for
you, or mail a postcard to someone on your behalf, or take a picture from the top of
the Eiffel Tower. Things like that. $5 doesn't sound like much, but enough of these
$5 gigs can start adding up quickly. Especially if it only takes you a few minutes
to perform each task. Imagine doing 10 of these tasks in an hour and making $50. Not
bad, is it? Well, there's a book called
How to make money on Fiverr that explains just how to do that. If you are looking
at a quick way to make quick money, Fiverr is something you've got to check out, and

Makes sense to me.
Monday 9 August 2010 - Heal, Nourish, Rejuvenate Your Skin <--click for more
My son has problem skin. He's suffered from all sorts of problems ever since he
turned about 11. We've tried a bunch of things with him, but nothing seems to do the
trick. It always gets me searching the Internet for the next best product. I think I
might have actually found it this time. I came across a natural skin care product that looks very
promising. It's called Moor Mask and is
composed of 100 percent organic moor mud. You're probably wondering what moor mud
is. So did I, but thankfully, the website has an ingredient list, and there are
literally hundreds of things in it. I recognize many of the herbs from past
purchases, but this product seems to have them all covered. If you have problem
skin, it might just be worth a try.
Monday 9 August 2010 - Can you win at roulette? <--click for more
For the longest time, I've been
experimenting with roulette systems. Things as simple as the martingale method
(double your bet until you win or totally bust) to more complex systems. But I
haven't found anything that really works in the long term. Goodness knows I've
tried, as it looks like a puzzle with a solution, especially in this day of
high-powered computers. I've been searching for information online, and so far, the
most promising site I've found is Roulette Strategy That Works.
I've got it bookmarked now, and I'm looking forward to studying it in more detail.
Sunday 8 August 2010 - Making Friends and Learning English <--click for more
There are plenty of dating
sites and friend sites out there, but there doesn't appear to be a common thread
that would bond people. But now, there's a site where just your love of the English
language can help you find friends and perhaps even a love interest. Check out Learn English Online. This site really sounds
like a good idea. What better way to make friends than find a common interest such
as learning a language?
Friday 6 August 2010 - How About Some Photographs? <--click for more
When I was younger, I had dreams of being a professional photographer. I had the
whole nine yards: a couple of Nikon bodies, several different lenses, a tripod, flash,
special lighting, and even a whole darkroom setup. Remember back when we used to
use chemicals to develop film and print photographs? Which brings me to my point. I
was wandering around the Internet, as I often do, and I came across a rather nice
photography website. It's called Matt
Wier Photography and features some really good photos. And he has a Hasselblad!
I've only dreamt of playing in large format... Check out his portraits and make sure
you don't miss Boat girl Alexia Dox. She's got piercing blue eyes that Matt brings
out very nicely in his photography.
Thursday 5 August 2010 - Most Stolen Car? <--click for more
It doesn't really surprise me
that the Corvette is the most stolen car of 2010. After all, it's a nice looking
car, and people probably like to be seen driving it. The exact model of Corvette
that gets stolen most often is the Z06, which retails for around $41,000. If you'd
like to see the other cars being stolen, check out This
Web Site. It lists a total of 20 different vehicles and how much the insurance
claims cost on them. At the bottom end is the Volvo S80. I suppose it's true that
Volvo makes great cars, but as far as desirability, it's not as sexy as the
Corvette, or even the Cadillac Escalade. The most interesting tidbit is the fact
that the Ford F-250 truck made the list. A truck? According to the statistics, it's
higher up the food chain than the Saturn VUE and Mini Cooper. I don't know about
you, but I'd rather be seen in a Mini Cooper over a truck anytime.

I've used VLC Player on the Mac for quite some time. I didn't even know they had a

download it and give it a go. Same great interface! I can play all sorts of videos
and music all from one easy interface. Also, it can work in server mode and stream
stuff as well. How cool is that? If you want a clean, small app that can play a
bunch of video and music formats, download vlc player now. It's a great
little app, and I highly recommend it.

Check out Pop Art Portrait. I'm not

I've often thought it would be great to be able to give people a personalized gift

masterpiece for each of my friends to give to them for Christmas. That was a monster
of a bad idea. Instead, I should have gone to this place and had nice looking
portraits done for them instead. This company will take any photo you give them and
create a nicely designed painting of it. Had I know about this company before, I
would have definitely taken advantage of this service. Actually, Christmas does come

OK, I don't own a restaurant myself, but I used to own a coffee shop several years

I got all the details right, it was time to close up due to lack of business... That
can happen to anyone. To prevent it from happening to you, you should take the time
to build a decent web site for your restaurant, coffee shop, or other eatery. I
found a great online tool for doing just that. If you'd like to check it out, visit

You can put up a restaurant web site in a matter of minutes by following some simple
instructions. It's not that expensive, and you'll have a nice looking web site that
you'd be proud to show potential customers.
Thursday 29 July 2010 - Tesla Motors Again... <--click for more
I've talked about Tesla before, and now that they've gone public, I've been
wondering how they're doing. I ran across a blog posting at Armchair CEO
discussing Tesla and how they are going to fail, and guess what? I think he's right.
As much as I'd love to see the company flourish, I have a sinking feeling it's going
to be the next DeLorean. The cars are sexy, and if I had the bucks, I'd be on the
list to buy the sedan when it comes out, but unfortunately, I really don't think
that sedan is going to see the light of day. Do you?

whole lot of Classifieds yet, but I'm sure it's

Thursday 17 June 2010 - Igor Stravinsky <--click for more
was born on this day in 1882. He was a Russian composer famous for such
works as "The Rite of Spring" and "The Firebird". Part of the former was
featured in Disney's Fantasia. It has been said that John Williams might
have committed unintended plagiarism by lifting some of themes from "The
Rite of Spring" to use in his Jaws soundtrack. I don't know if there is
much credence to the accusation, but there it is.
Although he was born
in Russia, Stravinsky became a naturalized citizen of the United States in
1946, taking up residence in Los Angeles, California. There, he conducted
concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at times. During the 1960s he
became mentor to Warren Zevon, famous for such tunes as "Werewolves of

She also directs movies such as Then She Found Me. And did
you know that one of her first roles was as Murray Slaughter's daughter on
the Mary Tyler Moore Show?

Anne Frank was born

family died in a concentration camp during World War II...
She kept a
diary that became world-famous, The Diary of a Young Girl.
It has been translated into many languages and was also made into a major
motion picture. The diary chronicles her life from June 12, 1942 to August
1, 1944. The exact date of her death is not known, but it was in March
Friday 11 June 2010 - World Cup <--click for more
The World Cup is
currently going on. I'm not a big fan of soccer, but I know that it is one
of the most popular sports in the world, perhaps the most popular. For
those of you who are not familiar with the game, there are two teams, and
they take turns kicking a ball across a grassy field. The team who gets
the ball into the goal on the opposing side gets a point...
with the most points at the end of the game wins. You are not allowed to
use your hands unless you are the goalie, the person who is protecting the
goal from the opposing team. It's fairly simply, but it hasn't caught on
here in the United States. Some say it's because there's no easy way to
insert commercials into the game, as it is not designed to be played with
lots of breaks in the action. Well, in any case, there are a lot of teams
playing. After all, it's a big world.

Saturday 5 June 2010 - Simplify English? <--click for more
Should we simplify words in the English language? That was the thought
that drew a bunch of protesters to the annual Scripps Spelling Bee. You
can see an article about it HERE...
There are some people who would rather spell the word enough as enuf
and the word fruit as froot. We've got mega gallons of oil spewing into
the gulf right now, but this is the type of protest some people want to
draw attention to. I'm not the greatest writer in the world, but I do love
the English language for its quirkiness. If you can remember, a few years
back, they tried to create a universal language called Esperanto that
would make it easy to learn and easy to understand. And it took off like a
plane grounded by a lightning storm. If we're going to simplify English,
why stop at spelling? What about capitalization? How about punctuation?
Let's give ebonics another try, shall we?

government wanted to take the entire 10 acre farm, warning the owner that
he'd better sell it for $39,500 or else the doctrine of eminent domain
would be used to simply seize the land. It was not a popular plan, and the
government got absolutely no support from the locals. On top of that, the
border station was idle most of the time, so making any improvements to it
or spending any money on it was senseless. Score one for the little guy...

Danny Elfman was born
on this day back in 1953. He formed the band Oingo Boingo back in the

sounded pretty conventional, such as Fast Times at Ridgemont
High and Midnight Run.
But then you started to
hear his unmistakable style in such films as Batman and
The Nightmare Before Christmas. I am looking forward to
hearing what he did for The Green Hornet, which should be
out in theaters in 2011.

Is it me or are

reservations online and got confirmations sent to my yahoo.com email
address. And now, I've been seeing advertisements for this place
everywhere. I don't remember ever seeing them before. Kind of eerie. They
are even showing up on sites that aren't affiliated with yahoo.com, or
maybe they are and I just don't know about it. In any case, I've seen this
trend with other "coincidences" as well. So, I'm guessing that either
cookies or some other technique is being used to put very personalized ads
in front of me. Just me, not anyone else on the Internet.

Lena Horne recently
passed. I've been told she was a great lady. I don't know much about her,
except what I read in Wikipedia. There was one fact that got to me.
Although she appeared in numerous films in the 40s, there was a
possibility that her scenes would be edited out if the picture was shown
in a state where black performers could not appear...
So, most of her
scenes were standalone and didn't involve other cast members, because they
could not be integral with the plot of the picture. Wow. I'm glad it's not
like that anymore.

My trusty old iBook is on its last legs. It's gone through several

like it really wants to be pushing up the daisies right about now. I've
been thinking of what I would replace it with, and after doing a bit of
research, I found the Lenovo IdeaPad netbook.
It's one of the few 12" netbooks out
there. Netbooks are superlight, and this one's battery lasts around 6
hours, which would be great. It doesn't have a built-in DVD drive, but I
haven't used one in years, so it really wouldn't bother me. I could run
either Windows XP or Mac OS on it. You heard right. There are people who
have figured out how to get OS X running on standard off the shelf
hardware. One of the bigger movements is called Hackintosh. I'm seriously thinking
about something like this.

Thursday 6 May 2010 - Cell Ranger <--click for more
A few months ago, my family
decided to embark on a great telephone experiment. We would give up our
landline and do cell phones exclusively. So, now we have five cell phones,
two for my wife and I, and three more for our oldest sons. The phones work
great as long as you are not in our house...
There, the reception goes
from one bar to no signal at all. To remedy this situation, I have been
searching for solutions, and I found an interesting one the other day.
It's called The Cell Ranger
Cell Booster. You basically plug this antenna into any USB port on any
computer in your house, and it boosts the cell signal so you get better
reception. It doesn't require the computer to do anything except provide
the power, so I suppose you could even just find a USB to AC power adapter
and plug it into any outlet and it would work just as well. Simple enough.
So, I'm seriously thinking of ordering it, as I'm getting moans and groans
about having to go near the window in the dining room in order to make a
call or even receive one. People just don't know how good they have it.
Back when my great great great grandfather was a kid, they didn't even
have cell phones! They probably didn't even have regular phones. So, stop

I had to go shopping for a specific type of light bulb last night. It was
a compact fluorescent bulb, 18 watts, 4 pin plug in. Shouldn't be too hard
to find, right? I went to Lowe's and checked their shelf. No luck, so I
called for a customer service person. He showed up about 5 minutes later,
looked at my dead bulb, looked at what was on the shelf, and said, sorry,
they didn't carry it. Maybe I should try the "other" big box hardware
store. So, I went to Home Depot and the same thing happened there.
Unbelievable. So, now I have no light in the kitchen, and nothing I can do
until I can find a replacement bulb. Don't you love it when things like

OK, I've just joined an
interesting program. It's called MyWorldPlus, and it's a
program that can make you a lot of money, at least that's what I've been
told. The first thing it gives you is lots of discounts at local
retailers, so you can quickly make your membership pay for itself and then
give you savings over that...
Then, if you sign up people below you, you
can make money from them and anyone that signs up below them. I know it
sounds like a pyramid scheme or multi-level marketing thing, and maybe
that's what it is, but just the savings you get by being a member seems to
be reason enough to try it out. And if it doesn't work the way you think
it will work for you, you can cancel anytime. Check it out!
