I'm In Demand Again

I've just got an email from an auction site I haven't listed on in ages. I think they must be emailing everyone who trades on Tazbar now it is closing down.

Today's jobs

1. Bought another 3 packs of nicotine replacement lozenges . I have a shopping list for groceries here, ready for tomorrow, but I might have to give up eating as well as smoking as I think I have enough lozenges for the entire street.

2. Added links to my blogs and some links to the blog rolls...don't know why my brother's blog doesn't have a feed...weird that.

Here is his blog...from Australia.......The Bloke With The Horse

3. Wandered about the internet...mostly forums and Facebook

4. I have enough tridents to do the next boss fight on Pirates...only I have lost the same fight twice :(

5. Dropped by my favourite games forum HERE

6. Suggested an eBay seller add a 'buy it now' option to her auctions and she now has loads of dosh to take away with her on her holiday......think I'm in the wrong job

Every Word Rings True

This is from one of those emails that is sent to just about everyone to pass on.

I don't know who wrote the original email...but I agree with the whole piece.....

HERE IT IS

"

'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started
by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and
Have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in
downtown Manhattan , across the Potomac from the nation's capitol and in a
Field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning
Or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured
by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in
A brutal insurgency.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for
Incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring
about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by
Beheading in Afghanistan .

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off
Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out
and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in
Mosques.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blows themselves up in search of
nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide
Bombs.

I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of
speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the
Ground or their families waiting a home to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an
Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to
Move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank .

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and
fed 'special' food that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that
his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your
heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and
Other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

I don't care!!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends
Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous
Behaviour!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you
choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed
By radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in
The world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you forward
all this.

One last thought for the day:

Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The Canadian Soldier.

3. The British Soldier.

4. The US Soldier, and

5. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul, the other 4 for your freedom.

Times They Are A Changing

I thought the big news was going to be the BNP getting 2 Euro MPs elected last weekend, only on Monday I was told that one of the auction sites I trade on is about to close down.

I signed up to Tazbar.com in September 2006, when the site had only been live for about 6 weeks. I've since seen a few really dodgy sites come and go but really hoped that Tazbar would make it :(

Welcome To My Virtual World

I used to have a blog about my life on eBid.net only eBid is only a tiny part of my on-line experience so it would have been a tiny blog.

So....I decide instead to share snippets from my on-line world and hope this blog will at least be mildly entertaining.

Facebook is playing up again...all the games are up the spout which is how I managed to find the time to nip across and add some more waffle to the rest on the internet.

Jobs today include

1. Adding lots of entries to the latest prize draw on my website.
So far over 200 people have sent me their names, addresses and email addy
Some people have added phone numbers and for some reason best known to themselves, others think I want to know how old they are????

The prize draw is open to anyone over 16 in the UK and the prize is a black and floral design jute beach bag...you can find more details if you clicky here

2. I have lots of mystic pendant charms to add to my new age store on ebid which you will find if you clicky here

3. Clearing all the game feeds on my facebook games. I am currently playing Pirates, Mafia Wars, Vampire Wars, Metropolis and Zoo Builder. I recently dumped a lot of the games I was playing as I was in danger of getting behind with my business...eeek!

I run an on-line business, partly retail and partly affiliate marketing but plan to dump the retail side at some point as I don't like working for 2p an hour and I have never seen any multi millionaires flogging their clutter on on-line auctions as their main business.

I'll get back to this when I can break free from facebook :)
