Snail mail spam

Do you remember those old pyramid schemes?  The ones where you were sent a bulky letter in the mail, with a giant list of people and their addresses, and you were supposed to send like one dollar to the first ten or something like that, then add your name to the top of the list, […]

Another way to make money online – with affiliates

There are so many different ways to make money online.  If you have a product to sell, you can try your hand at your very own e-commerce site.  This often entails a lot of hard work – creating the product, photographing the product, deciding upon what you will sell the product for at retail, and […]

You won’t see this where I live

It’s a very pretty scene, isn’t it? But this is something we can’t see where we live unless we drive north for an hour at least. Snow is a once in a very rare blue moon kind of thing here, and even if it does get cold enough to drop snow, it doesn’t do much […]

Did they find Caylee?

Last night on the way home from the Christmas show that my husband and I went to, we heard on the news that a child’s body was found in Orlando, not too far away from the missing girl’s grandparents’ house. Hearing that, my heart sank.  I’ve held onto some hope that Caylee would be found […]

A new place to sell handmade wares

So I’ve been seeing on several blogs that there is this new website called Art Fire where artisans who make handmade items can put their products up for sale for one monthly fee. Right now for the first 5000 artisans who sign up, it will only be $7/mo for life – as long as they […]

I will admit it – we are credit card junkies, although we have gotten better about how many cards we carry balances on.  But at the same time, I always find myself trying to figure out ways to make a little extra money on the side so we can start paying down those vicious balances […]

Nifty Gmail themes

Google is rolling out cool new themes for Gmail. You will have to log out and log back in, but only if your current layout of Gmail tweaks just ever so slightly… If it looks different to you and you can’t quite put your finger on it (the normal blue color changes just a bit), […]

That lingering scent…

Why is it that every time I go to Subway for lunch, I can still smell the place on my clothes hours later? And while the smell inside the store is nice (mmm… fresh bread!), the after-smell doesn’t smell so great? (it’s like a sour bread-going-bad smell) It’s like walking into a restaurant or bar that […]

Thank goodness for Akismet

It’s been catching quite a bit of spam. Inappropriate spam.  And if you post inappropriate comments, then you know who you are. How do you like the spam purgatory?  It sure isn’t lonely there, you’ve got company for sure.  Enjoy your stay!
