October 20, 2006

Hello and good morning everyone, I'm writing this update before I have to leave and go to work. I had a really relaxing 2 days off and now I'm pumped and ready to battle those timeshare owners with attitude again at work. I'm working the 1 to 9 shift today and tomorrow. I'm having some problems with my computer. For some reason all the sound files have disappeard and I can't seem to retreave them. I didn't know how much I depended on sound until I didn't have it and I'm really lost without it. I'm also having problems with Homestead. Homestead is who I have my website Gone-ta-pott.com with, so for those of you who visit my site each week to see the newsupdates.... (like Surfing News & Updates) will not see any new information because Homestead is down right now. That means that I cant get to my website to update and publish the pages. It is going to make me really behind and I will loose a bit of money from this but there is no choice in the matter. I have to say that I've been pretty lucky with Homestead though. This is the first time in 3 years that I've ever had a problem with it. I haven't been putting my attention into Auto-Surfing at all this month. I hear that e-businessonline.com sold and since I can't hear anybody else newscast I'm a bit out of the loop. I haven't had much time for reading because my main focus is always on Halloween for the month of October because believe or not the month of October and November are the months that I make the most money with my website each year. I usually have to put everything else on the backburner until I get passed the fall rush. I think the reason why this is, is because I have a really large Halloween Directory. -Because of the high cost of medicine these days, many people are researching "Natural Healing" so I've added a "Healing" section to the Directory that is getting a rush of hits right now. Interesting to say but because of the up count of the Wicca religion, my "Witch" pages are on the up as well. I expect that these two sections will continue to get above average hits all throughout the year. At least that's what my prediction is. Another reason why these sections are so big is because it's fall and I have a huge fall "Recipe" section of pumpkin recipes and spooky Halloween party recipes. These pages are only popular in October and November though. Before I sign off I would like to send out a big congrats to PamelaJ who I work with. She is a grandmother for the first time! I would also like to say.... Melanie you better think about me while your relaxing and sipping those tropical drinks on the cruise ship girlie! Happy Halloween Everyone! Pam

October 11, 2006

Hi Everyone, It's getting harder and harder for me to keep up all my links on my website..... all my emails and all the updates on all the pages that have to be made. Just having the time to write in my blog is quite a chore in itself. hahaha! I'm really glad to have the day off from my day job today so I could work on it. Making Money With the Internet Well it looks like CommandBravo is getting a lot of attention here lately. They seem to be talked about in a lot of locations on the Internet. In a good way that is. I checked out Jakes #26 Newscast and it was a good one. I guess his wife is going to be a regular visitor in it now. I also checked out Todds newscast today as well. It was his 1st one and it was good too. He had 2 spooky skull heads on each side of his desk as his .... mascots I guess. I also watched SSM Newscast #1. Mannnnnn I think were racking up on people doing newscasts now. Hey! Sounds good to me! I really like watching them myself. I haven't had time to listen to Freds podcast lately. I will try and work that in sometime tomorrow. He is such a pro at it I just love to hear him. If you want the links to them just go to my Surfing News and Updates page where I've listed them. It seems Denalisurf.com is another surf site that's getting a lot of attention too. I see that DailyROI is no longer a single program. Its now going to be referred to as the xROI. They have hyiproi, monthlyroi and roixtreme is the latest. I see that 15hitsdaily is still saying vote vote vote!! LOL! They put that in most of their emails. And lets see..... last but not least, I have not been paid by dadndaves or alientrust as of yet. Catsville Batman the cat has got in the habbit of biteing butt. Not the other 6 cats butt but, but my butt!!!! Dang that was a lot of but words wasn't it. I had to re-read it to make sure I put the right amount of them in the sentence. lol. Anyway, my Batman wants attention all the time and when he does he bites. The weird thing is that he doesn't bite your ankle, leg or arm like the other cats do. He bites your butt. If your sitting down in a chair he will go to any length to wiggle between you until he can touch your butt with his teeth and then he bits it. Ouch! He then looks up at you really fast and give a quick meow every single time. On the Home Front Stephen flew back home from his business meeting in Atlanta. He said he had a great time. It has cooled off a lot outside but it's still not cool enough to turn off the air conditioner. The nights are nice but the days are still very hot. I'm looking forward to Halloween and Im dragging out the decorations tomorrow. New page on website I've added a few new pages to the website. Here they are if your interested. healingchickennoodlesoup - pumpkin recipes - candlecolormeanings. That's it for now friends. Its after midnight and it's time to get some sleep. Take Care Everyone. Pam

October 2, 2006

Hello to everyone! Itsssss meeee.... I'm back! Vacation is over now and it was nice to take a short visit back home to see the family in Alabama. Mother has a new puppy named Cocoa who is just adorable. Eddie and Alan (my brothers) are still working hard as usual. I can't actually say that much went on while we were there. I had all of about 2 hours with each brother because our visit was in the middle of the week so they were working. Mother was getting ready for the cold winter and we noticed that all the stores were getting ready for Halloween. Money with the Internet Well...... the last 2 weeks I haven't had much progress with making money with the Internet. I did take the computer to Mothers house with me but found that the only connection I could get was dial up and in the area I was in....... it was soooooooooo terriblyyyyyyyy slowwwwww! I tried to Auto-Surf but that was a waist because it just wouldn't load. It's just as well though because through my reading of different blogs, not much in the Auto-Surf Industry was going on at all. I found that many sites had closed and most surfers are taking a break from the surfing or at least slowing down with it until the Industry picks back up. I watched the video clip of Jake from "Surfing Authority" and I saw where Todd was no longer doing the site with him. I guess Todd has started his own site now. I noticed also that Jakes wife has started being part of his news and is doing a bit of inspirational stuff as well. I tried to check my website and at least place my sales banners on the pages but that was taking forever to load it too. I had no success at all with any of it so I gave up. Yesterday I had a nice Google check in the mail. I do love it when those checks come in so I have to say that google is still working really well for me for my website. Halloween It's October everyone! I really love the fall season. Did you guys know that October is "National Dessert Month?" Yep it sure is! October and November means its pumpkin time too! hahaha! I really love pumpkin pies and did you know that you can put a layer of marshmallows in the bottom of a pumpkin pie, put the filling on top of the marshmallows and bake it. The marshmallows will come to the top of the pie and make it delishioussss! I always start cooking those pumpkin pies once October hits. Stephen lovessss pumpkin as much as I do so its a hit at our house. Now just so you know...... October is also "National Cookie Month" as well. That's why you always see so many Halloween Cookies at all the specialty shops. And all this time you thought it was just because it was Halloween didn't you. giggle~ No, really.... if you will notice you will find all kinds of special cookies in all the stores that your not able to find at other times of the year and it's all because it's National Cookie Month. I bet you didn't know that! I have a Halloween Section in my website and each year I have to update it and get it ready for a new year. This year I've added 10 new pages that would be fun to read if your interested. Here they are- ---- Scavenger Hunt / Scarecrow / Halloween History / Witch / Ghosts / Spells / Potions / Traditions / Jokes / Safety Tips Stephen has to dress up for Halloween at his work so he is trying to decide what he could be this year. My work does not allow dressing up for Halloween so I don't have to worry about it. This will be the first year that I don't get to dress up. :( how disappointing. Catsville The squirrels are working really hard right now getting ready for winter. They keep running up and down the fence with loads of nuts in their mouth and they are making many many trips of it. The cats are just going crazy watching them. They wish that they could catch one but they are in a fenced in area so they can't reach the fence. The squirrels like to stop near them and squeal. What a tease! ha ha ha! Well that's all for now everyone! Happy National Cookie Month, happy dessets and as always Happy Halloween! Pam

September 20, 2006

Hello Everyone, Don't you guys just love the coolness in the air? The days are still hot here in Florida but the nights are starting to turn cool. I really like that. Stephen and I are due for a vacation so we are taking the last week of this month off. That 's next week!!! yippppp-eeeee! Stephen gets the whole week off but I only get a long weekend so we can't actually go anywhere and relax really. We are going to go to Alabama to visit my family for a couple of day's. We are looking forward to getting away for a while and being able to take a few deep breaths. So having said that.... you wont see an update in my blog at all for next week. Making Money with the Internet The paid-to-surf Industry is at a all time low right now in my opinion. I haven't been paid by anyone at all lately and most I have joined have went belly up or either I didn't like how they changed their new polices so I've decided to lay low. My referrals have dropped down to an all time low as well. This let's me know that others are holding off on joining programs just like I am it seems. I haven't latched on a new sign up in over 2 weeks now and that is reallllyyyy bad. Also.... I'm not getting the click throughs into my site that I'm rotating like I once was. It seems like the whole aspect of the whole thing has slowed down for me right now and does not seem profitable at all. I can't seem to get my surfing finished at surf-down-under because this site called "agel" keeps taking over. I keep logging back into the site and starting the surf bar over again and in 3 or 4 rotations... that dang site takes over again. I'm tried of trying to surf it so I give up. *I'm reading a lot of stuff about all the changes with the Network sites. I just don't know myself. *You know solidtrustgroup.com has gone private now. The free members have until Sept. 30th to put some money into the program. With the new rules....you will only have to surf one day out of the month. They will let everyone know what day that will be but it looks like it will probably be the same day each month. *15hitsdaily is doing a lot of changing right now as well. When you upgrade with them you will begin to see their Corp. name which is "Tri-Star Media Group." They have also started a promotion called "15 weeks of Christmas." They are giving away gifts to random deposits in your VM. They also have launched their oun private forum that can be found at http://www.successtalkonline.com. I haven't heard any updates with my account at alientrust at all. I don't think they have started paying out after the closing. All these updates and more are found on our Surfing News & Updates page While reading my favorite websites..... I saw that Fred with EbusinessOnline is thinking of selling his website. I kinda hate to hear that because I like his personality and I really like to read his site and listen to his ipod each week. I joined SolidTrusts Paid-to-click but not much activity there yet. My A-Store with Amazon.com is doing good. I'm selling a book or two here and there. My clicks from google has went up for this month. I should be getting a check from them in the next few days. I have to say that Clickthru.com continues to be the best place for me to rotate my links right now as far as advertising goes. It's free and after all these years it continues to work well for me. Catsville All of the 7 cat's are doing great. Since we live in Fort Walton... we are always having military plains flying over because of the base that's next door. Well.... those sonic booms are hell! The cat's were all outside a few minutes ago and one of those sonic booms hit and scared the crap out of all the cat's. They were knocking each other down just trying to get inside the house. They are all hiding in boxes in the garage now and this is what they do each and every day when the sound hits. It's so loud that it even shakes my glasses in the kitchen cabinets. Our Website I have added a few new recipes to the website this month. I've also updated a few of the Halloween pages as well. I still have a long way to go in the Halloween section but I'm getting there. I've had an enormous amount of banner links that have changed so I've been typing like crazy trying to get them back active again. I do a lot of linking through Commission Junction and those links change all the time. My top pages that I'm getting the most clicks on is the Pirate Section. This is unusual but it must be because of the latest craze with the Pirate Movie with actor Johnnie D. "pirate of the Caribbean." All these clicks are coming from the search engines and I've noticed that many other websites have linked to my pirate food section as well. Well that's it for today everyone. Yall have a wonderful week and don't forget that we go on vacation next week so you wont see an update from me. Take Care all and Happy Surfing! Pam

September 14, 2006

Good Morning to you all, I'm sitting here listening to the coffee pot grunt and groan while it makes my coffee. Stephen is still in the bed fast asleep after working a double last night. Soon his alarm clock will go off and he will have to head back to work again. Me..... well I have the day off today and I plan on working on my website for most of the day. When the clothes in the dryer get finished drying.... I will take some time to iron up our work clothes. Sounds so exciting doesn't it. hahaha! The most exciting part of it all is the coffee part. Dadndaves.net / paid-to-surf It looks like David put out a long letter on his website. Here's what it said. Hi everybody, An update on the state of dadndaves. Many people are accusing me of neglecting dadndaves, and concentrating on 12by12daily, at the expense of dadndaves. Yes, guilty as charged. It seems that despite my attempts to give you the real picture over a period of many months, many people have not bothered to read, or do not understand the situation with dadndaves. I have already documented the reasons for the demise of dadndaves, but I will give you a brief rundown again. (You can still read the previous updates by clicking on the link on your members page) By now everybody has heard of the problems associated with Stormpay in the early part of this year. Apart from the actual loss of money in my Stormpay account, I lost all my investments in other autosurf programs which were affected, and either stopped paying or disappeared altogether. At that time I had about half a million dollars invested in various programs, which was bringing in (before February) around $8-900,000 per month. So, as you can see, not only did I lose the half million dollars I had invested, but I also lost a substantial monthly income which was used primarily for payouts at dadndaves. About a month later Paypal decided they no longer wanted to do business with me. This was despite a previously flawless payment record, and verbal assurances from Paypal that this would not happen. Despite these setbacks I continued to make payouts throughout February, March, and into April, and also paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in refunds, even shifting substantial sums of money from my bank account which I had been keeping in reserve. Eventually the reserve dried up. I then asked for your support, and I must say the response was great, many people offered to compound for a couple of months instead of requesting cashouts until I could get my cashflow running again, but what I really needed was a show of confidence and a substantial increase in the number of upgrades. Unfortunately this never came, so here I am with no money, substantial debts, and no way of paying. I had a number of options open to me. First option, close the site and disappear like so many others had before me. Not a good option. Second Option, close the site and offer refunds, pay a few refunds, and then disappear, like so many others had done. Once again, not a good option. Third option, Reset everybodys account to zero, and hope that you would continue to support me, as a couple of other sites had done. Once again, not a good option. The fourth and only option was to find a way of raising the money to pay my members and close the site down honourably. This is the option that I chose. On July 12th I opened 12by12daily.net, for the sole purpose of generating the funds required to pay out dadndaves members. Obviously with a site like that it is imperative that it runs properly and members at that site are paid first, or it would also fall over. I can tell you that 12by12daily members are being paid every day, being paid on time, and a lot of members are making a lot of money there. It has been a phenomenal success, and if you haven't joined yet, come on over. Could be a good way to revitalise your cashflow while waiting for your dadndaves cashout. Remember if you join under my link, all referral commissions I earn are going to payout dadndaves members. http://12by12daily.net/?ref=2 Only after operating 12by12daily for one month, and seeing that it was going to be as successful as I had hoped, did I make the announcement that dadndaves would close down. Since the opening, we have paid out around $700,000 to dadndaves members, and there is every indication that I will be able to honour my commitment to pay everybody what they are owed. Bear with me, this will take time, but over the period of the next year, before September 4th 2007, all members will be paid all their earnings. Bear in mind also, that if not for the success of 12by12daily, nobody at dadndaves would have been paid during this time. So, what is the situation now? Payouts are continuing every day. We are no longer giving priority to high flyers, but are paying everybody as we can. For a while I was paying those who emailed me, to get them off my back, but that is not fair on the members who suffer in silence. It is also no longer practical, as there are just too many emails about this subject to even read. If you email me, and ask "When am I going to be paid?" I cannot answer that. I do not know the answer myself. I have reverted to paying in order of receipt of the cashout request. Many of you who have been paid lately, or who are asking about payouts from August should be aware that there are still some members who have not been paid for May, so that is where I am paying from now. When I get to your account, you will be paid for everything you are owed up to the day I pay you. Please, no more emails about this. Everybody will be paid, in time. In a few days time I will be turning off the cahout button. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, when i get to your account you will be paid for everything you are owed up until the day I pay you so there is no need for further cashout requests. I will leave it on for a few days so that those members who do not have a pending cashout request can make one. Thank you for listening David As you can see, it looks like the payout are about 3 or 4 months behind. I highlighted it in red. I sure liked Dadndaves and we were always paid until lately. I hope people support his 12x12 so more funds can go toward what he owes his dadndave members. He has been a trusted admin over this year from my end.

September 13, 2006

Hello Hello Hello! Gosh I cannot believe how fast this month is flying by. September is well on it's way..... school is back in session and from reading all my favorite blogs this week it's obvious that all the sports are back as well. The TV is full of football and blogs are full of sports scores. Moms and Dads have send the kids back to school again and everyone is starting to get use to a new daily routine. Catsville IttieBittie the house cat somehow found his way out of the house and in the yard today. The little curious rascal got scared and nearly tore the window down trying to get back in the house. The poor little fellow was scared to death. He must of ran out the door when I went to take the trash out and I didn't see him. He's a sneaky little thing that's for sure. Paid-to-surf Guys this market right now is so flippy. This here today and gone tomorrow crap is driving me nuts and I'm getting so tired of it. I would really like for this industry to design a real long lasting business that we all can benefit from, that would actually function as a real business would function and not get ripped by hackers. I just don't want to have to worry about site's steeling our money all the time. Dreammmmm on right. Well.... I'm getting ate up by all the sharks in these surfing games and I'm finding that it's to much of a gamble at this time for me to spend any more than a few bucks in any of them. No more big ad buys for me until the Industry changes for the better. Yep call me scared of the water if you want. I'm swimming to shore and going to sit in the sand and watch the waves for a while myself. I sure hated to see reindeersurf.com close. I really liked this site and enjoyed surfing it. Let's see now.... they said temporarily closed didn't they... LOL. The last surf I joined was tf-surf.com. I still like the low % site solidtrustgroup.com. I'm still surfing 15hitsdaily.com. I don't know about goldndaily right now. I'm still surfing dadndaves.net but I'm still waiting waiting.... waiting to be paid. I'm still surfing surf-down-under. Gosh that site has been going for over a year now. Our Website Gone-ta-pott.com The newsletter is up and ready to read. My new associate store with amazon.com is doing fantastic! I titled it "Make Money with the Internet" and I've started putting this in my advertising rotations now. The Internet is just crawling with people wanting to know HOW to make money with the Internet and these books that are available are great for beginners and packed full of fantastic subject matters on how to make money with the Internet. I'm hoping this will give me some extra Christmas money since I don't seem to be making the money with paid-to-surf programs right now. winkkkkk~ I had to find another angle in here somewhere ya know. Make Money with the Internet. I really have to get myself busy on my Halloween pages. I'm falling behind on updating it for this year and I have to really get my butt in gear if I'm going to have it all ready by October 1st. It is unreal how many hits I get on those pages compared to all my other pages in my website. I really love Halloween and I look forward to it each and every year. I love it as much as Christmas! It's so much fun to work on this section of my website and the research for it is even better. I just have to find the time to get all my work done. I've updated the September Calendar page. Did you guys know that it's National Biscuit Month and National Honey Month? Well it is! Go to our page and read all the Holidays for September. There's a "Date Nut Recipe" on the page as well if your interested. I put it there in honor of Date Nut Day that was on September 8th. On the Homefront Stephen is working his butt off. He works so many hours a week and they could care less how tired he is. Unappreciatedddd for sure! I bet many of you know that feeling don't you? This damn world of retail that he's in is the pits. In this day and age everyone has to work their fingers to the bone just to make ends meet don't they? I only wish life didn't have to be that way but we were not born with silver spoons in our mouths so we work. It's getting the retail holiday season which is no holiday for those people who work retail. It's a holiday nightmare instead. Dealing with pissed off customers who fight for merchandise is terrible and not something that my hubby is looking forward to. Ya know.... it kinda spoils all the holiday spirit for him since he dreads it when the different holidays come around. My work has slowed down for now. Work is revamping the new winter schedule for the employees so I guess I will find out what the verdict of that will be come this Friday. I hope I get a great one. There's a chill starting to move in the air and I need to drag out the boxes of winter clothes. That's all for today, Take Care- Pam

September 6, 2006

Hello to everyone! It's been a good week this week and I have to say that I took the time to catch up on much needed housework. Yesterday I spent most all day washing clothes, ironing, cooking, mopping, sweeping, washing windows and scrubbing the toilets. Hubby cut the grass and then we went to Sam's to buy up some bulk items. Then we took off to the mall to check out the toaster ovens that were on sale at Sears. Our toaster over burnt itself out so we bought ourselves a new one. After all that was over we were starving. We ate at the "Olive Garden" and had a wonderful pasta dish with a nice blush wine to go with it. The hot bread sticks were yummie for sure!! We were so stuffed. And yes oh yes I scooped the cat poop yesterday as well. hahaha! Today I weeded the flower bed, took out the trash, balanced the check book, mailed the bills, shopped for the groceries and Cooked lunch for hubby. Now I'm tired so I'm settling myself in to some quiet time as I write this update. I think we all work harder on our off days than we do when we have to go to work don't we. It's starting to get dark outside and I think I'm going to put on a hot pot of coffee and enjoy something hot and sweet. Some caffeine will help me to stay awake so I can wait up on Stephen to come home from working late tonight. Surfing/Marketing/Making money with the Internet Things are really slow from my end when it come to auto-surfing or manual surfing for advertising. Dadndaves.net has not paid me yet. I sure don't feel good about this. And I tell you..... it has been nothing but pure heck to try and get the surfing done the last 3 weeks. My gosh I have spent all day long some days just trying to get the surf bar to surf. To many people surfing????? hummmm- I don't know about that but I do know that it has been annoying as heck to say the least. One good thing is that Dave always credits you. I don't know what good the credits are if you don't get paid for it though. Ya know...... I really think as far as just getting traffic to my website I still really love Clickthru.com the best. I have used clickthru for yearsssss and I get more traffic from this site than any other traffic exchange that I've ever used. I really have to be honest here...... doing the surfing for advertising and manual surfing has never really brought me much traffic to my website like I would like it to. I think most people just do the surfing for the money and since firefox is the perfect browser to use for surfing (because you can open a lot of auto-surfing sites at one time)..... it you actually want to advertise your site.... your almost wasting your time because you site is not going to be seen very much. Hey I love firefox so don't get me wrong. I'm just saying that if your real goal is to get clicks on your website.... it's best you use the manual surfing programs or the top traffic exchanges like clickthru and use the auto-surfing sites for putting a few pennies in your pocket. "Follow companies that are progressing with the goal of improving upon the product......Advertising." I sure like this sentence! The last time I blogged I put this sentence up and titled it "Favorite Sentence of the week." Did you guys recognize what blog it was taken from? Well it came from the blog at commandsurf- titled "Accept new changes for the Industry." Written on 9/2/06. I thought this was an interesting write up. Catsville I have 2 cats that are clept- toe-manics! Ohhhh yes I sure do. Its getting to where I either have to put these cat's in a room all to themselves or come back home and find they have taken the portable phone off of its receiver and I can't find it. My fear is that they are going to call Hong Kong or somewhere with it while they are dragging it around the house. I've started just unplugging it the last couple of days. I need to make a decision on how I'm going to fix this problem. Give the kitties a phone of their own maybe? hahahaha. One of my favorite jokes Lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address:

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel plans. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My loving wife

Subject: I've arrived Date: April 6, 2006

I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. sure is freaking hot down here!!!!!

That's all for now-See Ya- and take Care. Pam~

September 3, 2006

Hello Everyone! It's so good to be able to hop online and type you guys a few lines. I've been so busy lately and I know that I am behind on getting my newsletter set. We have a wonderful Holiday tomorrow! Wooo weeeee! Well that woo wee goes out to those people who actually have the day off. I have to go into work at 7:00 in the morning but at least I get off work before dark so I can still fire up the grill. Hummmm I wonder what shift the hubby is on tomorrow. I might not be firing up the grill afterall. Snakes and more snakes Hey Israel.... so how's commandcorps.com It's amazingggg how many snakes are in Florida! So it's possible its a "racer" ya think. I was talking with a few locals and they said the same thing. They also said it may be a black runner as well. It sounds to me like these 2 snake names may be the same kind of snake but I don't have a clue. I did find out some interesting facts about a black runner though. If you run toward them, they will run. But--- if you run from them.... They will CHASE you!! Wow!! They say that's why it was named a "runner." I knew black runners were in Alabama but I didn't know they were in Florida. Like you said.... There not supposed to be social. I do have an update to the snake looking in the glass sliding door. When I was outside yesterday, hoeing around the edges of the cement patio..... I moved a big potted plant over to the side. To my surprise I found a big deep hole in the ground at the back of it. I think I found where this big boy is living and it's just a few feet from the glass sliding door. That explains why he keeps looking inside now. Amazon Associate Store Well well well..... I thought I was the only person who had an Amazon.com -- Amazon Store and to my surprise..... So does Surfboard at SurfAdsInc. Heyyyyyy how come yours looks different then mine Surfboard. hummmmmmm - I don't have the search box and category list on mine. Mine starts with the Listmania. I must of missed that set up step when I did it. The subject I picked for my store was "Making Money with the Internet." I'm going to put the links on my Marketing pages of my website and on all the auto-surfing info pages as well. I've already set the link up on the surfing News & Updates page. This is a awesome Store Front guys that Amazon has come up with for all it's Affiliate members who want one. I think it's greattttt myself. It's something new that there doing and it's in the testing faze but so far it's working great for me. Favorite Sentence of the week Ok let's have some fun. For all you Auto-Surfers, Manual Surfers and Ad Advertisers. Your going to be the one's who understand this sentance. This is no dought my favorite sentence of the week. ""Follow companies that are progressing with the goal of improving upon the product.......Advertising."" So do any of you recognize this sentence? Where did you read it at? I will give you one clue.....It's from a blog. Well I will let you ponder over this one and I will tell you the answer tomorrow. What's for supper? Today I made a really good beef roast with carrots and potatoes and shared it with my work friends. I cooked it in a crock pot so it could slow cook for about 6 hours. I had a dynamite gravy for it and tonight me and the hubby will have just enough left over to make us each a plate. I'm going to make a few biscuits to go along with it so I can sop up that yummie gravy. Bye bye Internet friends, Have a wonderful Labor Day tomorrow! Pam

August 29, 2006

Hello ! My work week is over from the day job at the Resort and now I'm starting my Internet work. I had a really good week this week. The boss man and his wife went to Colorado for vacation and it was actually a relaxed week for all the employees. The scare of the hurricane sent many of our guests packing for home. The hurricane has turned now and headed in the other direction so it looks like there will be no problem for us this time. When ever we have bad weather it makes it impossible to do my work online. You see we have satellite and it alwaysssss goes down. Since storms are brewing because of the hurricane I'm expecting to have a problem getting all my work on my website published as it should be. That's why I'm typing as fast as I can this morning while the weather is ok. Blog Watch ( see our surfing blog directory ) Like I've said before, one of my favorite things to do is read blogs. I really look forward to my day off so I can fire up the computer.... and start reading blogs as I sip on my morning coffee. Some people reach for that morning news paper but I reach for my blog list. This morning I started reading and found that 8 out of 12 blogs that I read this morning talked about a site called GoldnDaily.com. It looks like many people are joining up with this site to try and make a bit of money that is actually placed in your e-gold account daily. Yep that's exactly what I said. You don't see this very often but this site pays out 12% daily for 12 days and actually has an automated payout. We checked out the site and this is what we found out. When you surf and complete your surfing, your earnings are sent to your e-gold account immediately. The payout is there instantly. We think if you check this site out, you need to think of it as a money game and consider it HIGH RISK. Be Careful! Follow that famous saying "Don't put in more than you can afford to loose." Also something else for you to know is..... if you intend to invest at this site make sure you read all the information. You have to manually adjust your "payout information" in order to get paid daily. If you don't, you are set on the compounding option. Auto-Surfing / Manual Surfing There's a lot of talk about one called Reindeersurf as well. I looked at this one and I have to say I reallyyyyy love the theme of the site. "Christmas!" --- You know.... if your into surfing for advertising, it can get really boring looking at the same ole basic sites. I really like to see a site that has a theme to it so it makes it more exciting to be a member of the program. Yeah yeah I know.... some of you are about to say that you could give a hoot about what the site looks like as long as it puts money in your pocket because your in it for the surfing income only. There's going to be that other group of people reading this that's going to say..... "Hey I want the site' to look really professional and leave out this fun and game stuff..... I want the site to look really good because I'm working toward referrals and the better the site looks, the more referrals I get." Well.... both statements are something to think about and this is what makes each of our experiences with making money with the Internet so different. Personally I like to be Entertained by the advertising/surfing sites a bit myself. I like to see a well laid out site and I like it even better when it has a theme to it that has monthly promotions that tie into the theme as well. I like to see that someone has put some thought into the program. I guess that put's me in a third category doesn't it. hahahaha! Either way guys...... it doesn't matter if your surfing for advertising, surfing for money, surfing for referrals or surfing for entertainment. You have to admit that being versatile is what the Internet is all about and we will choose the programs that best fit what each of us like to see. We all know there is no shortage to the long list of programs that we have to choose from. Each person will have different experience with each program as well. This is why blogging is so important to everyone. This is the best way there is to read about different experiences and get the full low down on programs. So guys.... help support your favorite blogs and be kind. Give them a link from your site. On the Home Front I don't know what it is about these damn snakes in the yard. They are building a new housing development about a 1/2 mile down the road and I guess they are running the snakes out of this forest area. We killed a watermockasin (I cant spell it) a few weeks ago in the yard and I really hated to do it but we couldn't take the chance of getting bit. This bad boy was 3 inches thick in the middle and was about 3 1/2 foot long. But I have something else to tell you. My whole life I've never experienced what I'm about to tell you. We have a black snake that is about 3 foot long that keeps coming up to the glass sliding door .... raising his head about 6 inches off the ground and looking inside the glass door. I suspect he is looking at the cat's that we have inside but I don't really have a clue. It's actually startling to be getting food on the table and see the snake just looking in. If you walk over to one side of the room.... his head will turn and watch where you walk. I don't like it one bit!!! You can walk up to the door and he doesn't move. Keep in mind that he's on the outside and I'm on the inside. If you open the door and go outside he runs off really fast. (thank goodness!) I was told that black snakes were not poisonous but I don't know. He is black with a tan belie. We live in Florida so if anyone know about snakes and could explain the character of this one looking inside the glass doors please feel free to type a few lines and let me know. I don't want to wake up one morning and find he has found a way inside the house. Cause.... it damn sure seems like he wants ta come inside and live with us. Bye for now Ok that's all for blogging today. I have to get busy on my website Gone-ta-pott.com. You guys enjoy your day and I'll talk with you again tomorrow. Pam

August 24, 2006

Happy Birthday! I would like to send out a Happy Birthday wish to my husband Stephen who is 43 today. He is at work right now but when he gets home I will have his favorite birthday cake baked and ready. He loves Chocolate and he loves coconut so I've combined the 2 and made a "Chocolate Walnut Coconut Cake". Yummieeeee! Put a big glass of milk with it, or maybe a big cup of hot coffee..... and just sink into sweetness. LOL! Auto-Surfing Well.... another week has passed that I didn't get any payout from Dadndaves for last months request. 30 more days have passed by and I have requested my second payout. Both are pending. I've made a decision where I'm not going to buy anymore advertising units anywhere until somebody somewhere pays me some money to work with. Looks like I'm dead in the water right now and I just don't feel comfortable putting in new money right now. In order to get my website rotated... I think I'm just going to surf on sites where I can be a free member for a while. Maybe September will hold more interest for me. Catsville Hummmm..... it looks like Ittie Bittie has taken all of my ink pins off my desk again. That little cat has a fascination for pins and markers and now he has taken them out of my pin holder again. He usually takes them to the garage so I will have to go and find them if I can. Dolphinswink Blog I was reading on Dolphinswink.com blog today and saw the great picture of the manatees. She has a link on her site that if any of you are interested, you can go to the "Save the Manatees Petition" link and help this beautiful animal. I had the pleasure a few years ago to live beside a creek that lead to a large bay that led to the ocean. Each week I would go down to the pier in hope of seeing a mother manatee and her 1 baby who loved to swim this long channel all the time. If they were in the area I would go down the ladder in the water and touch and caress them. They are so beautiful and not scary at all. Many times I would take a head of lettuce down with me when I went just in case they were there. They loved eating the lettuce from my hands and I just loved rubbing my hands on their big nose and feeling their big snout and their mouth. They even have whiskers! smileeeee--- They will even let you hug them. It was a memory that I will always remember. Unfortunately..... a bad storm came one night and it Lasted for about 3 days. The manatees couldn't be found. Locals say that they swam up in shallow waters trying to get away from the storm and the weather was to cold for them in shallow waters in winter time. Why in the world they would go to shallow water just doesn't make any sense but I guess we will never know. They were both found dead. It was a very sad day. I sure loved them. Please go sign the petition. Take Care, Pam

August 22, 2006

Good Morning! It's a beautiful day today and I'm ready to tackle the Internet. I had a really good nights sleep and now I'm perched in my cushy chair with the laptop and I feel all snug and cumfy. I have my morning coffee in hand and I'm now set to get to surfing! You know your life has gone-ta-pott? 1. You know your life has gone-ta-pott when you fight the ants for that last M&M that is sitting on the seat of your car. 2. You know your life has gone-ta-pott when you stock your refrigerator with the catchup and mustard packs from the local fast food. Auto-Surfing I'm sure you all got the warning email from webhitsdaily or either read the warning on the website about the "No tolerance issue." I didn't think I had anything to worry about but ...... I guess I broke the rules at webhitsdaily.com. It looks like my site was suspended from rotation. The link I was rotating was my directory page for Auto-Surfing. http://www.entertainmentdirectory.homestead.com/surfing.html. Can somebody tell me why you think this page would be suspended? What am I missing? Is it because the links all open up in a new window? I guess I need to go back and read the rules again. I usually rotate one of my splash pages because they are clear of ads and they have no google links on them. If I rotate a page from my actual website that has google ads it breaks the google rules which say you can't rotate any pages on auto-surfs, traffic exchanges or etc. that have google links on them. I know this to well because google contacted me a few months ago and told me to remove my site from advertising exchanges. Geesh......... how the heck can I advertise my little website now??? I know I know what your thinking. You see sites all the time in rotation that have google adsense links don't you. Yep I know.... but sooner or later they will get a sweet little letter from google that will say stop it or be deleted from the google adsense program. I sure would like to find the happy medium here. You see I'm not really interested in getting referrals from my auto-surfing links so I would rather not rotate them. I would rather get advertising out for my own little website. We learn as we make mistakes. Plans for the day: My writings today will be short and sweet. I'm on my way to do a bit of reading at the emc forum before the hubby and I head to the beach for a few hours. I've already been on the computer for 5 hours and it's getting lunch time. Stephen and I plan to go have some fish n' chips before we take a nice relaxing walk on the beach front. There's nothing like the feel of the waves and sand rolling over your feet. It makes all your problems disappear for the day. I think the bulk of my working on the computer will be done tonight. Take Care, Pam

August 20, 2006

Hello from Pam! Another work day is over...... got my shower already..... got my big baggy tshirt on.......got my drink in my hand........suppers on the stove cooking...... and I'm here relaxing while I type a few words to you. My computer is right beside the window here so I've opened up the window and let the cats go out to play in the fenced in area of the yard. They are all having a lot of fun but they are acting skidish. I see the neighbor kids are making noise next door so that always scares them and they don't play as much when the neighbors are outside. Holy Crap!!! Ok, you wont believe this. While I was sitting here typing.... I looked out the window and I thought the cats were being scared by the kids next door but when I looked at the oldest cat really close.... Smokey had jumped up on the window sill like he was trying to get up high away from something and he was looking at something really intently. This is what got my attention. He's a smart old cat so I stuck my head out the window and what did I see!!!!!! But another snake about 3 foot long that was raising his head in the grass about 6 inches up. He was looking from side to side. Scared the crap out of me. Naturally I had to get my butt outside really fast to get the animals in before one of them got snake bit. As you guys know I have 7 cats! I think I've broke my damn toe too. I took the screen out of the window so the cats could jump in and out so naturally..... knowing this..... when I saw the snake, I just jumped out the window myself. Ohhhh gosh... I really do think I've broke my toe. I did get the cats in but now I cant find that dang snake. Hummm..... I sure hope the neighbors didn't see my fat butt in the tshirt either. Gosh that little ordeal has my heart to pumping! We seems to be finding a lot of snakes in the yard here lately. If it's one thing I can't stand.... it's a snake. I really love animals and nothing against snakes but a snake scares the crap out of me. It makes me do stupid things. Internet Surfing there's still really not much to say about this subject right now. We are still taking things really easy and were just doing a lot of reading on the subject. I read surf Bloodhound today and the pics of the dogs are always fun to see. It's worth going to the site just to see the dogs. Hey Bloodhound..... if your reading this, are any of those dogs yours? I don't think Bloodhound likes Todd and Jake from ASA very much. He has quite an involved write up about them today. They got bitchslapped once again. Personally.... I never miss watching ASA's weekly newscast. I think it's always worth going and seeing what they have to say. I'm not saying that I follow their suggestions but I am saying that they have heaps of information usually that you can do some research on. This is always good for the Industry. Segment #19 had Andrew on it from Midas-Surf.com. He was a cook kid. I think that's what's so great about blogs too. You can always get plenty of information to help you make your own decisions about advertising/surfing sites and things related. It's important to me to get others opinions. As you know everyone's opinions are based on their own personal experience..... but that alone is worth it's weight in gold. Everybody should get to blogging. We are all still waiting on the Harrolds Media to show their pretty little heads. I wonder when they will actually come on the scene. We still have not been paid by dadndaves. They have never failed to pay us before but this is the longest we have ever had to wait. We are still waiting for the forms to come out with AlienTrust so we can make our decision. We are still surfing Surf-Down-Under. We haven't had any problems at all with them and we've been surfing for ...... maybe a couple of months now. You never hear much about this site at all. It's not a real pretty site but it surfs with no problems at my end. You know they just had their 1st anniversary on August 18th. That says something in it's self. Our Website I haven't had any time over the last 4 days to work on our website. I keep the Surfing News & Updates in line each morning before I go to work (and do my surfing) but that's about all I have time for. I will be hitting it hot and heavy on Tuesday. Well that's it for now. Stephen just called and he's on his way home from work himself so I' ve got to get the meat on the table. Take Care All, and thanks to all of you for being a part of our blog. Pam

Hey Yall! It's meeee Pam! It's been one of those type till ya drop days for me. (smileeee) Ok ok go ahead and hit me with your best shot about my southern slang. Believe me..... I've heard it all in the emails that I read. I try and do my best at leaving out my southernessss but sometimes it slips out and I type exactly as I talk. I'm born and raised Southern and that aint gonna change anytime soon. So either get use to it or pass this blog on by and visit the next one. How do you do that you ask? Well in the top right hand corner of this blog is a button. Click that button that says NEXT BLOG and away you go. Now speaking of accents...... the hubby is from Australia. Yep born and raised on the Island and his accent is not going to be changing anytime soon either. hahaha! Favorite Blogs I want to send a Thank You out to Dolphins Wink. They added us to their Blogroll and we really appreciate it. This is one blog that we visit just about every day and I really enjoy it. This blog is about Making a living at home and online. I have to tell you..... every single time I find our website link listed somewhere, I still get that goofy feeling. hahaha! My heart start to beating fast and I get all happy and excited. I get that oh boy! oh boy! oh boy! feeling. Does it effect you guys that have websites that way as well? New Favorite Forum Guys I have a new favorite forum that I seem to be visiting a lot. It's the EMarketCafe.com. I use to spend a lot of time on MMG but I'm veering away from that forum. It's just way to much bullcrap on that one right now. It was one of my favorites at one time..... but not right now. Some of the crap that people have been typing is unbelievable. I like a more mature members base myself and lately MMG is just not cutting it for me. I just don't like the baby mentality and all the whining. It gets so old after a while. I think I'm going to do a bit of hanging out at EMarketCafe. Oh... by the way, we are building a forum page in our Directory. If you know of a good forum, email us so we can list it in our Directory website ok. Auto-Surfing there's really not much going on in the surfing world right now. We are still laying low until we see how the Industry is going to change for September. Hopefully for the good. We would really like to join a really nice place to get some really good advertising in for our website that's for sure. We are still waiting to hear how the new owners of NowDollar are going to manage the site. I think it was around August the 10th when they sent out an email to members telling us that they were getting ready to launch a new ground breaking program. Who am I talking about???? Harrolds Media! Well it's now August 17th- has anyone heard any updates yet? AlienTrust removed Option 1 Wellll wellll wellll...... supriseee supriseeee. AlienTrust took out the Option 1 from the re-compensation plan they were setting up. I haven't heard what that's about yet but I'm sure we will hear some more rattles about it. Stephanie Kronlein, the Director of Finance gave an update about it yesterday. She said that hopefully they will be able to re-instate it at a later date. ???? Those of you who are new may not know who AlienTrust is. This is a surf site/advertising site - that is closing it's doors. Joke Of the Day A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, " in-laws." Hey guys we have a "today's Fun" Page located here. You can go here each day and read jokes, play games and other fun stuff. The information updates so you are sure to read new and fun stuff. Time Spent Together Not very often do Stephen and I have the same day off but yesterday we did. We started our day out by doing household chores together. Then we showered, got ourselves dressed in the same color short outfits and made our way down to our favorite Cafe on the bay. We set out on the pier and ate baked fish with wine and lemon dill sauce pored on top. It was yummie too! While we ate, we watched the big boats go by and we had fun watching the hermit crabs crawling around in the water too. It was absolutely lovely. We talked about work and the Internet and all our big plans. smileeeee~ What would we have if we couldn't dream our dreams in life? Well it was a great day and I have to say I cherished every minute of it. Bye Bye for now friends I'm going to call it a day now. I've been online since 6:00 this morning and my butt is pretty num. The next few days are going to be really busy for me so I don't think I will be posting anything in the blog here until Tuesday the 22nd. . . . Stephens birthday is the 24th!! Wow! I better make sure I get the stuff to cook him a birthday cake! Take Care, Pam

Message from Pam Hello Everyone! Man oooo man it's my off day from the day job and I've been spending all day long catching up on my emails. Geeshhh! I got about 400 of them from the Internet and most of them were just adverts and spam. Only about 55 of them were from readers who read our blog or our website Gone-ta-pott.com. Speaking of letter we wanted to send a shout out to Frond from Frond's Cash Blog. He was nice enough to sign one of our guest books in our website and thanked us for listing him in our website. We sent him a thank you letter as well. Now feel free to go read his blog. He has a nice blog about Auto-Surfing. Spam Have your guys noticed the new way that spammers are spamming in emails now??? They send you an email accusing you of spamming when you damn well know you don't send spam. The email will have a simply one liner that says.... "Stop sending spam." What is so sligh about this is... they have about 5 or 6 signature links at the bottom of the email. They think they are soooo ----- cleaver! This is one thing that pisses the heck out of me to say the least!!! Auto-Surfing It looks like BioHazardSurf.com will be closing. We joined this one a few weeks ago to give it a test because we really liked the way the site looked. But..... it seems this run didn't last us long enough to get to know the site. Just as well.... we joined it so we could do a few reports to our readers it but it looks like we have to check this one off our list as well. We signed up with WebHitsDaily.com yesterday. You can purchase a $50.00 membership and receive an additional $5.00. The payment processors that they use is E-Gold, AlertPay, UniClear and Virtual Money. All accounts are manually verified. They do their membership a little bit different. You can be a silver affiliate, a premium member or a imperial member. We're going to take it slow in the surfing Industry right now but I have to say that I really do like the site. The surfing been smooth with no problems but we have only surfed 2 days. Today we signed up with SolidTrustGroup.com. We've been meaning to sign up with this site for a while but we could never fit it into our time frame. Since the close of so many surfing sites lately.... it has now given us the time to sign up. This site is a low 1% but that's just fine with us. When you join you get a FREE $5.00. This is the site that has its own payment processor called SolidTrustPay.com but they also use others as well. Personally I like the low % sites. They seem to last longer and besides.... its always good to mix up your portfolio. Speaking of low % - We loved Dadndaves and we hate to see it go. We did not sign up for Dadndaves new site 12x12. It seems this site is moving to fast for them to keep up with it seems. I thought it would be a good idea to wait and see if we get a payment from Dadndaves first. They still owe us from a cashout that we did on 7/20/06. Their paying slow but still paying. I don't know how they are keeping up with them both. Speaking of keeping up..... I can't keep up with Trish and how she is part of DadnDaves. I know she has Surf-Down-Under.com. This site is slow paying as well. I sure hope these folks are not over loading themselves. What's for supper? It's so nice to have the day off. I guess I had better get busy on the website and start checking links and updating as much as I can before it's time to cook supper. Stephen and I will be grilling on the grill once he gets home from work. We loveeeeee to grill and we do it all the time. Tonight we will be grilling steak with potatoes baking on the grill as well. I will also be cooking a foil packet of butter, onions and mushrooms to put over the top of the steak. A nice small green salad will do just fine on the side and the Pavlova that Stephen cooked last night for dessert will be great left over. Take Care Friends! Pam

Thanks for visiting For those of you that are visiting for the first time, our blog is about things that are related to our website. Our website is a Directory so it has many different subject matter. Everything from Auto-Surfing to jokes. Yep.... it's a Directory with a bit of Entertainment mixed in. Message from Pam Hello everyone. I just got home from work and like always, the first thing I do is hop on the Internet and start working on my website. It takes me an easy 4 hours each day just to keep it updated. So here I go with 4 more hours of work and then my day will be complete. Problems with a Snippet Oh let me tell you...... if any of you have been going to our "Surfing News & Updates" page lately then you would of noticed the bright blue color of the links on the left hand side of the page. I was having a terrible time at finding a snippet problem that was causing my links that were supposed to be tan, to change to blue every single time the page was published. I was going mad at finding the problem. But..... Finally the problem is taken care of and the page is back to it's intended color. It's a lot easier to read now. Auto-Surfing Gosh what can be said about this right now????? Who the heck knows!! We've been on the wildest surfing ride in a long time and I hope to goodness we don't have to ride this ride again either. If we have any more spins and flips and ups and down I swear I think I'm going to puke. I'm so sick of this constant spinning. If things don't perk up in this hacking Industry then I think I'm ready to get off of this ride for good. I've been reading blog after blog that usually gives indebted opinions on auto-surfing and right now there's just No subject matters to really speak of. Well I take that back. I'm reading the same old news over and over and all anyone can say is...... www. Hacked, www. Hacked, www. Is closing, www. site is down or either the blogs just simply say..... "I don't have anything to say." This is pitiful to say the least. We are all hoping to see this Industry get back on it's feet so surfers can start making some money again. You can just feel the tention in the air and the depressed state the Industry is in right now. Do we recommend any Surfing Sites right now? Actually I'm going to have to say "No, not right now." We are in a few but I don't really have that trust factor built up for anyone one of them at this time. The longest standing one that we were very happy with was AlienTrust and we all know that AlienTrust is closing its doors now. Are we going to join the new venture "ZapWire?" Ummmm I will have to think this one over a bit. I've always been terrible on getting referrals and it sounds like this one is MLM. I don't know for sure now because this site is not actually open yet to know all the facts. What I do know is I have never been any good at Multi Level Marketing but if this is the only way I will see a payment from AlienTrust then I may roll my money over into it. We will just have to see more information about the new site. Catsville Let me tell you about Batman the cat and the trouble he got into this week. I was working at my computer and I started printing out some pages that I needed. While the pages were printing I decided to step away to the kitchen and fix myself a sandwich. While I was gone, Batman the cat decided to investigate. Batman the cat has always been curious about the printer and when he hears it start to print he jumps up on the table and watches the pages inch down and spit out. He has always watched this process take place with great attention but he has never bothered the printer in any way. This time his attention was a little to much and the silly little boy stuck his paw up the opening in the front and pushed it way to the back feeling around. Needless to say he got his nails caught on something in the back of the printer and he was stuck. He had his arm rammed up inside the printer, all the way up to his shoulder!!! I heard him meow a few times. I walked back in the room with my sandwich and there he was. His whole arm rammed in the printer. I looked at him and I said "Batman! What have you done!?" The silly cat looked up at me, cocked his head sideways and answered -Mawww. ma ma ma maw. Then he looks in the opening of the printer with one eye, turns back and looks at me as if he was trying to explain how the heck he got his arm stuck. I was laughing so hard till all I could do was give him a good finger waggle and that was it. Oh and yes... I did get Batman (black cat with yellow eyes) unstuck.. Favorite moment of the day - While working the front desk today at my day job, I had an i-i-irate woman who was pissed off because she wanted a room on the water and not the room that the TimeShare company placed her in. She was tapping her longgggg fakeeeeee fingernails on the counter demanding that something be done when....... in her tapping anger....... 2 of her fake fingernails came popping off of her diamond filled hand.

    Good Morning to you, It's meeeee Pam! It's Friday morning and it's raining cats and dogs outside everyone. Most people will be working their last day of the week and getting ready for the weekend off but not for me. You see Friday is actually the first day of the week for my day job. Yep.... I'm one of those weekend workers. I work long hours on Fri, Sat, Sun and Mondays. I have to deal with the mad rush of all the people on Holidays trying to check in. I'm that smiling person that takes your money and sends you to your room. You see I work at a small Time Share Resort on the bay and let me tell you...... When those guests get there from driving on the road for hours and hours they are CRANKY to say the least. Wouldn't it be nice if our website Gone-ta-pott.com was getting enough traffic to it that I could quit this day job and just run the website full time. Hey you gotta love those checks from Google Adsense. If working our website full time doesn't happen soon I'm not going to have any teeth left to grind. Google Gossip I've been reading over the Internet that Google has been deleting blogs that are using the blog for referral links. We think that's a shame. We hear that their crawler is what's making the decisions and doing it. We are finding that many people are changing over to different blogs besides Googles so they can get their links listed. We haven't had a problem with this as of yet but we sure would like to know the facts. Can anyone give us your experience on this? Surfing for money Come on 15hitsdaily let me stay logged in for goodness sake! It's getting so tiring having to keep logging in every day. Hey did you guys hear the latest from them yesterday? 8/3/06 They are in the process of transferring the site to a new and improved dedicated server with a much higher level of DDoS protection and SSL security among other features. Boy that was a mouthful! Anyway Bobs email said that after the transfer is complete they will be launching their new Autosurf. The name is being withheld for now. The new site is a multi-level earning system with different levels of referral commissions. I put this information on our Surfing News & Updates page as well. I have to say that I'm looking forward to seeing how the new site is going to be set up. I'm looking forward to the day that a site can come out and be as impressive "looks wise" as AlienTrust.com. ahhhhh I just reminded myself that AlienTrust is closing it's doors. What a shame but we all knew it was coming. But hey... talking about nice looking sites... that Midas-Surf doesn't look to bad does it. I really like sites that are in black with a bit of gold. Yeah I know, our very own site Gone-ta-pott.com is in those colors as well. Anyway, since they don't have Virtual Money yet and since e-gold is still down, we will have to wait before we give Midas a spin. Many times we will join as a free member and give the surfing a test drive and spin our link around before we even actually spend any money on buying advertising shares. I don't think we can do that with Midas if I understand their terms. Here's what it says --- A potential User may register for free to view the site and explore. However, to place a site in the Surf Rotation for viewing by other members, a Registered User must purchase an Advertising Package. Failure to purchase an Advertising Package within 30 days of registration shall be deleted from the system and denied access. This procedure is necessary to maximize the advertising return potential for those members that have purchased Advertising Packages. Hey somebody refresh my memory. What ever happened to the surf site AutoSurfingPros.com? Was this the one that was going to combine with Alertpaypro? We were members in diapers with AutoSurfingPros when they stopped and now I can't find my notes on what was happening to all the memberships." If you go to the website it still says this. "Autosurfingpros is now in maintenance mode. "This may take approx 1 week." "More information will be sent out via email." Well how long has it been now????? Anybody know the update on the subject? Payment Processors I still can't log into E-Gold. I've tried for 3 morning now. Yep it's that ddos attack problem that's going on. Now is when I really wish I had opened up an AlertPay account but I never got around to doing it. The bad news is..... we all know that payouts with our surfing sites are going to come to a stand still right. Those of us who use E-Gold will just have to wait it out. If your new to the Internet we have a list of some of the most popular payment processors that's available over the Internet. Just Click Here to see.

    Hello Hello Hello! It was my day off today and I spent it paying bills, buying groceries and scooping cat litter poop. Yep I usually spend my off days from my real job surfing the Internet on auto-surfing sites and updating our website. This time I thought I would take the day off from it all and catch up on my daily chores. After all...... with AlienTrust.com closing and NowDollar.com at a stand still right now why not right. Only those people who buy advertising will know what I'm talking about. Early this morning about 6:00 am -I was enjoying a relaxed day at my computer checking emails and reading my favorite blogs. I usually do this while Stephen is in the shower getting ready for work. The blog I was reading was Surfboard's Online Money. Imagine my surprise when I was reading his news (with my feet propped up with coffee in hand...) when I ran right into our very own link! Well I gulped really hard and said... ahhh O! What's this........! Not knowing what to expect-- You see.... we have a quite little website and a quite little blog and it was quite shocking to be reading a paragraph and find out that the paragraph your reading is describing you. Someone that we didn't even know too. You know how blogs go I'm sure. You never know what anybody is going to say about you! hahahaha! Well..... I called for my wet and towel wrapped hubby and in his Australian way of talking he reads what it says and then says...."Good On Ya." Anyway, Surfboard Thanks for giving us a bit of a punt on your postings and placing us in your surfboard line up as well. It's really great to get a link back to our website. Readers.... If you want to read an informative blog then don't miss Surfboards Online Money. It's a well laid out site and full of great information about making money with the Internet. You will find us listed under "Surfboard's Info Sites." The hot coffee pot is brewing again and the smell of the deep dark roast is filling the house full of that soothing morning coffee smell. The real cream and the coconut creamer is sitting neatly beside the coffee pot waiting to be pored in the coffee. While I was waiting for the brewing to finish, I settled back into my computer and was well on my way at typing when all of a sudden I heard it. crashhhhh! bangggg! bam! crack! I ran to the kitchen and....... I should of known. I should of known not to leave the real cream sitting on the kitchen counter unattended especially when you have cats. Nothing attracts a cat more than milk does and you guessed it. While Batman the cat was trying to get to the cream he knocked off a canister above the sink and it fell right on the breakfast dishes that I had ready to serve up breakfast on. The canister was so heavy that it busted 2 of my sea shell design dishes that I loved so much. ^$^$#%#$%#*(& Today was a wet and rainy day. I always did hate having to drive in the rain but I did it anyway. I had to get to the bank and pay those bills ya know. After all my running around in town was finished I met Stephen for lunch. We ate at one of the local pizza places and filled our bellies full. By this time the rain had settled down and we watched the steam coming off of the parking lot pavement; from the window of the pizza place. You know it always does that after a rain. Once Stephens lunch hour was over I gave hubby a hug and a kiss and I came home. When trying to bring the groceries in the door, Batman does his normal and jumps on my butt and hangs there and meows. For some reason he does the every single day as if he is giving me a big cat claw hug. Well I pulled all the groceries out of the bags and proceeded to put the can goods away first. Then I turned around to put the bag of meatballs that I got in the freezer. But..... where did they go? I thought I left them here. Now where did I put those meatballs. Hummmmmm. I had a sinking suspicion that I better start looking for them as sure enough I found them. I looked down the hall way and there I saw a small bag of meatballs scampering down the hall. $#@&**$#@ Finally..... put the groceries away and back on the computer I went. I tried to log into e-gold.com but found that I couldn't. The word is the site is under a Ddos attack. Aint that just great. Well that's it for me and the computer today as well. I better go get those towels out of the dryer and fold them. By the time I finish that it will be time to get supper cooking. Ahhhh here comes the thunder and rain again too. I guess the satelite will go out any minute now. I better publish this before it does. Bye everyone!

    Internet Surfing

    A Sad Day for AlienTrust members: Well surfers this is what the top news was on our Surfing News & Update page for today. AlienTrust.com were forced to close the negotiations and vacate the non-disclosure agreement. There is no longer a buyer for AlienTrust.com. AlienTrust will begin the process of closing down effective immediately. This information was taken from the last update by Vince. Read the complete update here at North Shore Media News. We were all on pins and needles waiting for this update to come through today. I think most had that feeling of helplessness. I even read posts of members feeling sink while waiting for the news. AlienTrust has been one of the best things that has happened for many people to say the least. Especially for those people who were fortunate enough to be maxed out at a early stage. It's sad to see such a site have to close. We've been with them ourselves long before the stormpay mess and we have enjoyed every single minute of it too. We also think Vince is quite the business man and many readers of this are going to take that sentence to have several different meanings. I for one thought the site was jamming and who ever designed it did a fantastic job. It was no dought the best looking surfing site out there and it was laid out very professional looking too. The support team was untouchable. It's sad to see such a piece of work end. Hummmm..... I wonder what new venture Vince has up his sleeves now? I'm sure we will soon see. Ya know..... We really like the program 15hitsdaily.com but we are having a heck of a time getting our surfing time in with the site. Ever since we joined we get booted out and we are always having to log in over and over and over. It just keeps saying user name/password is incorrect. After about 7 or 8 tries it finally reconizes our user name and password and lets us in. I don't know what's up with that. I think that Bob the Admin is on his toes with emailing all the members with all the updates on a daily basis. I mean how often does an Admin do that? So I have to give him an A+ for communication. The only thing that I think has been bothering me this week about his email are the ones where he asks everyone to go to the ASA site and vote. I don't know but.... It sounds like he is begging for his members to vote on him and that's a disappointment to me. Anyway, we are just testing the waters on this site but we really do like it so far. We listened to the telephone interview he had with autosurf Authority and heard Bobs voice. Nice~ I think it was segment #14. You can go to the site and watch the video under the Archives if your interested. Hummm do any of you remember the autosurf DailyROI.com? They suddenly closed their doors a few months ago and now it seems they have reopened. We just got an email from them that said it had been a rough few months for them and that during the stormpay mess they had no luck legally trying to get back the funds that stormpay and paypal owed them. They went on to say that at the time of 12dailypros closure, their advertising was displayed on their homepage, thus exposing them to the problems of 12dailypro. They were issued a cease and desist by an authoritative body. They were not implicated in anything legal, but they were instructed to go offline. The order expired on the 20th of July allowing them once again to resume business. Naturally this abruptly shut them down and caused them to not be able to finish paying out refunds completely. They are saying that they would like to make good on the refunds due but cannot pay them in full so they are initiating partial refunds in the form of upgrades as the funds become available. If I remember right this site was labeled as a Scam because they dropped off the face of the earth. They are trying to explain now that they are not a scam and they are asking their loyal members to upgrade. They have apologized to the public.

    Happy Birthday Alan
