Tony's new Blog

be sure to check out my son tony's new blog when you get a chance. He is a very funny man.

Well, this is just dandy

Well, finally was able to get the office all setup , and rolling smoothly now. I have a nice big desk with lots of room for all my junk, with things laid out to be ergonomically correct, and the last detail is to find a good keyboard that I can practice my poor typing skill's on.
One thing that I am doing, is honestly treating this whole project as a 8-5 job, which means getting up BEFORE work, getting coffee in me, getting dressed, and showing up at the desk by 8AM. I hope that by doing this, that I can create a momentum to be more successful at this, and start earning more money.
Between the Google Ad Sense, driving traffic to my site, posting links on every forum i can fin on a particular subject, and selling things on E-bay, that I should be pretty busy the next few months, as I build up my online presence, ans start generating more income. One of the ultimate goals of this project, is to get to the point where Teri can quit working altogether, and just live off the income that I make. How cool would that be ? It would be like a thousand Christmas days all rolled up into one.
be sure to leave comments, and any idea's for subject matter, in the comments section.

New desk

Finally got some of the things i needed to get this office up and running. We got the desk setup last night, after much work, and moving things around. Jody was a tremendous help in moving things and setting up, ince my back was out Sunday night. This morning I moved the computer to the desk, and fought with the wireless interface device, until I finally said to heck with t, and just dragged the LAN cable in and hooked up that way. Next is set up a Shortwave radio with a small antenna, so I can listen to it while I work. Thank you so much Teri as well, for riding along with me, all the way to sequim, and back. Very good company.

Life is good....

the joys of living in Joyce

Life is good....

Teri is in the kitchen making dinner, and we are chatting on the phone at the same time. it is like she is in the same room as me. We do tend to get a bit silly out here, but we have a lot of fun. What a joy it is to have her in mylife.....Never met anyone that could get as silly as me.

Life is good

blah blah blah

BLAH blah BLAH Ham radio Blah blah blah selling stuff on E-bay BLAH blah BLAH made homebrew beer BLAH blah BLAH teri is a sweetheart BLAH blah BLAH

That should just about cover everything for the weekend. have a good one, Theron

E-bay

As some of you probably already know, I have been selling a lot of my excess items on E-bay. This has been a profitable adventure so far, with a few hidden surprises. Their is a learning curve to seeling your items, as I have found out the hard way. I have been doing OK though, and have not received any negative feedback. And, I have made some extra money, just in time for christmas. Next month we should be ahead of the game, and not be in the red anymore. As of this writing, we have made close to 400 hundred dollars. How is that for a part time income ? Of course, after the price of shipping, and materials, that number is probably closer to 300 dollars, it still isnt bad. You have to keep in mind that once you pay out for the shipping materials, like bubble wrap, shipping, gas, time, printer costs, shipping sleeve and other items, you can actually start getting ahead of the game.

if anyone has any questions, or are interested in listing an item on E-bay, be sure to let me know, and maybe we can work out some sort of a deal. I can be found on E-bay as theronatwork, so be sure to take a look at some of the items I have on their, and read my feedback.

test post number 2

Well, let's see if this program works now, since i reset all the settings for BlogSpot. I have been trying to configure Blogilo, and offline blooging program, to interface with BlogSpot the last few days. For some reason, it works the first time I set it up, and after being restarted, it gives me error messages stating that it couldnt post to my blog, even though all the settings are correct. it wasnt working the last few times, then magically started working for some odd reason.

Gotta love linux......

Blogilo and BlogPost

Well, it would seem that they still havent worked out all the bugs on my favorite offline blogger program, Blogilo. I had all the settings setup correctly, and after working out a few bugs, had it posting like a champ. Now today, it gives me all sorts of errors saying to check my internet connection, and cannot find regexpid, over and over again, even though ALL the settings are the same as yesterday. really strange.

Christmas and Homebrew beer -- Life is good

Well, here we are coming up on the weekend, and i am going crazy, waiting for christmas eve so we can crack open the homebrewand try it out. We took samples last night, from a bottle above the stove, and it was really good. Still had a real light sugary taste to it, and just a bit cloudy, but by next weekend it should be great, and just in time for Christmas Eve. We will have to really set the mood just right, with candles and a small fire in the fireplace, and then just sit back, relax and sip on our first succesful homebrew beer.

I almost feel like a little kid again, waiting for santa to come down the chimney.

The other exciting bit, is that i was able to get Teri a really nice present this year, something she wanted, and will really enjoy. i am so excited, I dont know if i will be able to wait till christmas to give it to her. This is goin to be a good christmas. Even if we dont have a lot of money, and fancy gifts, we have each other, and a roof over our heads, and full bellies. thank you Lord for the great gifts YOU have given us this Holiday season.

--Amen

HomeBrew beer

As some of you know, i have been attempting to homebrew
my own beer for the last year now. Most of the time, it has been so god awful of a brew, that it couldnt be drank, and had to be poured out. I have altered the recipes with each batch, and made changes, some good, some not.

It originally comes in a kit, with a little plastic keg, and the ingredients needed to mix in. I have gone from this simple method, to adding a second stage of brewing, in a 5 gallon glass jar, with an airlock on top. have also purchased a hydrometer, so I can make measurements of the ABV% in each stage. I switched to a 2 stage brewing process, but was still getting just too much sugar in the mix. This last batch, i didnt add any sugar to the batch when it was bottled, and it is the best one so far. it has a light golden color to it, with a decent taste. the other change I made was where it was being stored. I was putting the keg's under the bathroom sink for a while, then switched to under the kitchen sink. It was just getting too cold in the bathroom for things to ferment properly. This last batch, i actually put the bottles above the stove, and this is the best one yet. That confirms that the major thing that was wrong was that it was just too cold for the sugars to ferment, leaving a sugary/ sweet taste to the beers, even after the yeast was done processing.

I am SO excited to try this batch, and plan on putting it in the fridge in a week, so we can have it ready for christmas.

For more information on Homebrewing your own beer, be sure to put this guide! on your christmas list.

Slackware linux and power outages

After the power outage we had a few weeks ago, I have been trying in despair to get my Slackware computer back up and running properly. Apparently, Slackware Linux does not like being shut off in the middle of accessing the file system, and gets really pissy butt about the whole thing. I can still get into the computer, and access the Desktop (KDE), but after several hours, the system crashes, and I lose all mouse & keyboard functions. At that point, the only thing left to do is shut it off with the power button on the front of the computer, and start all over again. very frustrating.

Since that time, I have been using my Debian Linux box, and after upgrading the memory up to 1.5G from 512MB, it has been very responsive, and slowly turning into my main computer system that I use on a regular basis. I have to say, that I like the file system on debian linux, and the updating is easy as well. i may just have to become a convert, and just start using the debain box. I have always liked the "apt-get" system of doing updates/ upgrades, as long as the computer is pointed at the correct repositories, it is almost automatic. Their are also ton's of software that can be used for whatever purpose you need, including blogging.

Well, that is about all i have fror you tonite, since my sweety is home and in dire need of my attention. When she gets home it becomes "Happy Hour" here at the old homestead. So thanks for reading this, and I look forward to your comments as this Blog progresses. Theron

Everything i ever wanted to know about kindergarten, i learned in life

Everything I learned in kindergarten, I know about writing, or, WTH is he talking about ?

Once upon a time, before scholars, and smarter people than me, started writing about their thoughts and idea's, there once was a train of thought that a person was born with a certain talent,whatever that may be. From the time, in early childhood, when they picked up a pencil, quill or brush, everything that was spewed forth was golden, magically appearing on the pages as the mind flowed continuously (A bit much?) with every ounce of golden text it could muster, until at the end, laying across the desk exhausted, chest heaving, mind swirling in a drunken stupor, they had created the perfect document.

But seriously, we have been brought up our entire lives, to believe this sort of idea, that somehow, as we stumble thru our day to day existence, that we will one day have an epiphany, and without any effort, find our talent, and start producing endless ideas and concepts and art, without any effort. isn’t that tragic ?

I was having a discussion with my son Tony, just the other day about this very concept, and he had mentioned that he had not found his talent in life yet. I was astounded at the idea of this. As I thought back, I wondered myself, just what was my talent ? What was my calling ? I have many things that interest me, lots of things I enjoy, and yet, I had not cultivated any of them into a usable method of creating, that I could share with the world. I assume that this Blog is a result of that line of thought, so to pay credit where credit is due, I would have to thank tony for planting this idea, and helping me to find a creative outlet that i could use to express myself, and place my wrath upon the world, for future generations to scoff at, so THANKS A LOT TONY!!! But really....

As I sit back on this day, and wonder just what the heck I am going to write (Type) about today, that could possibly be useful to someone, somewhere, that conversation with my son came to mind, and I wondered, what a blog article about writing blog articles written as a blog article might look like. OK redundancy filter just went off on my computer.... As I though back on my life, I wondered just what was my talent, my purpose, my "gift" per se. I have always been good in the artistic sense, but never quite to the point that I created a masterpiece on the first run. But, had I really ever cultivated any of these talents, to really get good at one. I never was a child genius (insert big word here), although I was reading the newspaper by the time I hit Kindergarten (see the relevance to the title ?). I have always thought that maybe, for some unknown reason, I had missed the turnoff, and stumbled into the unknown, blowing brain cells out the open window all the way, like little silver bubbles, making delicate little popping sounds as they went thru.

Oh, just to change the subject, in that last paragraph i had placed a bracket reserved for a really big word, i think that word is "Prodigy", so go ahead and mark your spot, and insert it in their now. Go ahead, i will wait........

Ok, ya got it ? Good job, thank you.

I hate it when my mind wanders like that and i cant keep a straight thought in my head. it is really racing now, so i think the juices are starting to flow now. I could write about farts for a few paragraphs, if that helps, and would hold interest more. or how my buttocks seem to be getting flatter as I sit in this chair, typing all this out. Or we could do a survey on whether your poop floats or not. But really, what is the point to all this ?

The point is, just get out there, find something that works for you, and start doing it. You are never going to be good at anything until you start doing it, repetitively, over and over again, until your eyes cross. That is what I am doing, and the result is what your reading, so see, it works. Unless of course i'm getting worse at this. Off on another "Bunny trail(TM)"

FaceBook blocking OccupyWallStreet

Wow, just posted on facebook, on my status, wondering how many people were seeing my OWS updates, and apparently NONE of them are going thru. SO now, it look's like FB is going to start filtering what you say and do as well, as impose changes on you that arent wanted, or needed.
I didnt beleive in any of this conspiracy stuff, and considered most of the doomsday seekers as radicals, but this last week, I have seen some things that have truly amazed me. The media is not covering what is happening in NY very well at all, and when the media did cover it, they twisted things around. I know this, because I have been watching th live feed on livestream, of what is happening. And what the media reports is completly different.
I know, I know, I sound like some sort of radical extremist, standing on a street corner yelling about the end of the world, But i can say honestly, that I am not. I am keeping my mind and my eyes open, and considering everything before I make a decision.
All I know for sure, is that some of this, is right on the money. Thanks for reading, Theron

OccupyPortAngeles

Well, the occupy wall street has finally started to gain momentum, now that the Labor unions are behind the movement. I am surprised at the lack of information on the subject. I am goion to start an Occupy Port Angeles movement to support the people that are working all across this country, and to help spread the word.
The biggest problem i have, is that their is a lack of funds for me. Just getting into town to spread the word requires bus fare. And the cost of materials is another issue. i will be taking donation's at my PayPal account @ foureyes779@gmail.com, to help out.
Thanks for reading this, Theron

Occupy Wall street again

Been following the occupy Wall street activity, for the last week or so. I have found that although I can follow the concepts that they are trying to convey, it is still very frustrating that they do not have a clear message yet. How is it possible to blindly follow all of this, when you do not know where it is heading. People from all colors and idea's are in on this, and I feel that this could turn into a good thing, if the outcome means a better economy, and more jobs. While i have a soft spot for the cause, I still have things that I have to get done, and can not let the protest's occupy all my time (OccupyMyTime).
Another little pet peeve of mine, was the protest's group that is in Seattle. I had been following the IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel on indymedia's servers, and had seen some things that just rubbed me the wrong way. One ,was that their is an aggressive group that are involved. These people stand a chance of undermining all the hard work that is being done in New York city, by painting the entire group as a bunch of radical, violent protestors. It is a shame that a small group can do this. Another thing that bothered me, was the whole tent issue. The Mayor of Seattle, had issued a statement, that he actually supported the activities happening in westlake, and that the solidarity movement was a good thing. All he asked was that, since other groups also had permit's to use the park they are occupying, that they take down the tents. Rather than working with the mayor, and finding some sort of compromise, they just refused to take the tents down. If they continue with their arrogance, they are going to lose the Mayors support, and possibly make the whole movement look like a bunch of extremist's, just looking for a fight, while whining about the state of the union.
Ok, enough of this subject, back to work I go. Thanks for reading. Theron

Occupy Seattle

Just read this on the OccupySeattle Facebook page, so I thought I would pass it along.

We had a successful overnight group of about 30 people. Donations and support continued through the night! The only things we need are tape, flyers, batteries (if we get the megaphone again), shelter, and blankets if you can put a call out." - Erin @ OccupySeattle, Westlake. 206 778 1221 is the number to reach her at! Thanks everyone!

So, if your in the area, and their is ANYWAY that you can be helpful, be sure to give Erin a call. And be sure to check out their facebook page, to find different way that you can support this movement.

Occupy Wall street

There is a Revolution going on in this country, and no one has seemed to notice. The Major networks are barely covering the story, and what does get posted is usually wrong.
this is a peaceful protest, going on in NY, and until Friday afternoon, i had not heard a single bit of news on the story. You have to wonder just why, with this big of a protest, why their isnt any media coverage. Is it because of the big corporations, who control the media, or something else. Not one word from the president, for or against any of this. Meanwhile, grassroots groups are forming all over the country.
We, the people, are fed up with the governments constant use of our tax dollars, funding wars and paying other nations, while we go broke. The main theme, is that we, the 99% who are going broke, are making the 1% of this nations richer. The 1% being the fat cats in big corporations, as well as wall street.
I am glad to see this happening in our country, and would like to see this mvement carry on, until we all unite, in peaceful protest, and take over. I would like to see it go even farther, but the likelyhood of that happening right now seem pretty bleak.
Here's to the people of New York, for standing up for all of us, while we sit in our heated homes, monitoring what is happening across this great nation.....Occupy Wall street!

Only cash surveys

Well, here it is two weeks later, and I am still waiting for www.onlycashsurveys.com to credit me for the surveys i did. I see that one was disqualified for invalid data already. No explanation, no email, nothing. Just "invalid data" on my list of my work.


I have to say that this is a bit frustrating, and at this point I will not be doing any more work for them until I am credited for the work i did. I have also seriously thought about closing my account with them, after I reach the $20.00 minimum limit, and just call the rest that i earned a loss, and spend the rest of my days bad mouthing them in every media that i have available.
I was really excited when i first did these surveys, and made so much in so little time. Now I am beginning to wonder if it was worth my hour of time to do their surveys. They say that their is no such thing as free money, and if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. There ya go

a few of my favorite things.

I have to say, that i was a bit surprised to find a few of my favorite Bloggers about ham radio, were actually followiing MY Blog as well. How cool is that. Even though this site is dedicated to my online experience in different methods of making money online, it would seem that ham radio is still creeping into all my posts....lol
What can i say ,I love ham radio. it is such a big part of my life, and something that I really enjoy.
Be sure to check out my Ham Radio blog

over at Blogspot as well, and thanks for reading, Theron

leaving Comments

Ya know, it suddenly occured to me, that maybe, just maybe, the reason why nobody was leaving a post, was because they weren't sure just HOW to do it. If you look at the bottom of the comment box, you will see a little dropdown menu there.

You can select an email address, or just choose "Anonymous" option, and leave your name in the comment, unless you just dont want me to know who ya are. Either way is fine.
I am looking forward to the readers comments, and any suggestions to make this a better Blog.

Page hit's.

Been working at getting my page count up all morning, here at the old homestead. I have noticed that as long as I am actively spamming my link everywhere, i can drive the page count up really fast. The prblem seems top be, that once I stop, the page count drops to almost zero. And when i stop for the day, im lucky to get a hit every five hours. Even though i have been leaving comments on every Blog i can find on a particular subject.
So, I am ask those people who actually DO read this Blog, to help out by sharing the link when possible, without spamming to much. Also, any comments on what you would like to see in this space, what i can do to improve things, and how to improve this Blog would be highly appreciated.

Online survey site

This is an update to my quest to find the perfect survey site, where you can actually make money.

I have been doing online survey's for several months now. Out of the thousands that are available, i have come across three that i have found to be worthwhile. The first is:

InboxDollars: This site has been alright with me so far. They have been straightforward, and I have actually made a few bucks using the different methods to make money. So far I have made close to $100 dollar's, for just a few minutes a day, doing their surveys, and clicking on the paid-emails. If you do decide to try this site, i would suggest setting up a new email account somewhere, instead of using your regular email. You can then use that email for the paid emails, and signing up for the different offers that are available through this site. The site URL is:
http://www.inboxdollars.com If you use this link, it gives me credit for sponsoring you, so if you are truly interested, give it a try. i can also answer any question's you may have.

SendEarnings: Same as inboxdollars. See above.

OnlyCashSurveys: This site is still puzzling me. I have been able to make over $20.00 on this site, in a short amount of time. The problem is qualifying for the survey's, and getting paid. I sat down and made over $20.00 in abt an hours time, on the 15th and 16th of September, and I am still waiting for most of them to be approved. My current balance is at $18.00, and you have to earn at least 20 to cash out. So here I sit 12 days later, still waiting to cash out on the pending surveys. I guess they are waiting for approval from the sponsor. Still very frustrating.
the site can be found at:
http://www.onlycashsurveys.com
You can also view my article over at Streetarticles, where i cover more topic's.
Well, thats about where i am at, in this crazy online world. i am also looking at other methods as well. I will keep you posted. Thanks for reading, Theron

FaceBook and GooglePlus

it's funny, up until just a week or so ago, i was extremely happy with the way FaceBook worked. Sure, there were litle pet peeves, but overall it was a good experience.
Now, for some unknown reason, facebook has decided to change almost its entire layout, adding unwanted features, and making things different, once again. why do they have to mess with a working format ? Remember the old saying "if it aint broke, dont fix it". Apparently somewhere along the line facebook missed that post.
As a result of facebooks current changes, I find myself looking more at GooglePlus. I dont like the layout of GP jut yet, find it a little confusing, and yet i keep trying to like it. is it because I am fed up with FB, or just wanting to try something new.
The other thing I have to consider, is that lately I have been delving into the Affiliate Marketing arena, and Social networking is a big part of that. As I drive more people to this site (Thank you, BTW), I become more visible on the internet. As i become more visible, I start generating revenue. This has been an uphill struggle, but i am slowly getting out there.
I guess, i am going to just wait it out, and stomp my feet and whine, until I cant stand FaceBook anymore. I hear their are even more changes on the way, which i dont like the sounds of. In the meantime, I will familiarize myself with GooglePlus, and keep on plugging away. Thanks for readin, Theron

Invalid Adclicks

 Ok, who's the wise guy that has been clicking the ad's on my Blog ? Just got a notice that invalid clicking was going on, and my Adsense account was disabled, which is why you are not seeing any Ad's on my Blog right at the moment.
 These ad's are a sense of revenue for me, and by doing so, you are taking food out of my family's mouth. Dont make me get NASA after you, just stop it, unless you find something that you are truly interested in.

Aurora watch in effect for higher latitudes

 With all the recent solar activity effecting our planet (just ask NASA), we have the chance, for the first time in a long time, to see the aurora here in WA state. At this latitude, we are usually just on the fringe area of seeing it, most of the time missing out. When the K index gets between 7 to 9, that is when we have the best chance of spotting strange things in the skies. The ancient indian's blamed it on the Peyote, but we now know, in this day and age, that it is the effect of CME (Coronal Mass Ejections) from our closest star, the sun. This time, the sun has ejaculated a biggin, and it is coming straight at us. I dont know if NASA has found the satellite just yet, but the aurora should aid in finding it, causing a big nite-lite for them to help in spotting the damn thing. Ya just have to wonder, at god's creation's at times, and even though we may think we know why these things happen, in reality we dont. Sure, we can explain away that the sun is just a big ball of gas, and it is constantly bombarding us with it's love juice, but how the heck did it get their in the first place ? And what caused the atmosphere, that protects us from these sun-butt-particles, as well as hold air in so that we can smoke our cigarettes when we need a breath of fresh air ?
 Only the shadow knows....NASA sure dont.

bad satellite

Ok Mr Million dollar, UARS satellite, come on out now. We know your out there somewhere hiding from us.
So really, just where is this stupid satellite hiding. I think that the Canadians got ahold of it, and our making them into dentures to be smuggled back across the border into the states, by our senior citizens. Just watch for the old lady who's head is glowing when you go thru a tunnel, or turn the lights off.
I have been scouring the internet, looking for one tidbit of information as to what could have happened to this darn satellite, that fell from the sky, and the news stories are hiding as well. So wjhat the heck DID happen to this thing, and why is it that we cant find the satellite, and we cant find any news stories on why we cant find the satellite. i cant find any news stories that claim that the stellite was found either. Ok, actually their was that guy up in Alberta who CLAIMED to have found peices of it, but it still hasnt been confirmed.
So, NASA has not only built a MultiMillion satellite to study the chemicals in our upper atmospher, but the also aded a "stealth" mode to the device as well. Kudos to NASA, for the 6 and a half ton satellite moving at 500 miles per a second, in stealth mode....mmKKKK
Over at street articles, this article says it all.

Good afternoon, I hope that you have been enjoying your Sunday, as much as I have. We have had a whole range of weather conditions here, from Cloudy to Sunny, and then pouring down rain. What a beautiful part of the country we live in up here in NW WA state. Nothing like it anywhere else.

I guess that begger's cant be choosers, so i should be grateful that someone is reading this besides me. So, kudos to all who read this simple Blog, and be sure to tell all your friends about my simple minded ramblings. Theron

10M and the BIG whole in the sky

Was truly amazed this weekend, by the amount of propagation on 10M, and the way the signals are coming in. No more E-layer stuff for 10M, it is all F-layer bounces, with the SFI up to 190.
The atmosphere, as we understand it, are made up of several layers, the highest being the F-layer. the F-layer is made up of two layers, being F1 and F2. Usuall on 10M we bounce signals off of the E-layer, called Sporadic-E. As you can imagine, you never know when their will be enough iionization in the E-layer to allow for propagation, which is why it is called "Sporadic-E". The last few days, with all the SOlar activity that has been happening, the F layers have been Ionized enough, to allow frequencies up to 28-29MHZ to bounce off of this layer. When this happens, contacts across the polar cap, into Europe are easily accomplished.
Ok, enough of the technical stuff. The last few days, I have been hearing and working stations into Europe, as well as into Asia, S pacific and Indian Ocean, all on 10M.
Does all this activity signal the end of the world in 2012 ? I dont know, but if the world has to end, I cant think of any better way than to be sending morse code, working some exotic station, and a big smile on my face. More info here at http://goo.gl/fgd6c

The Eagle has landed

Well, after much nail biting, and gallons of sweaty palms, the satellite has finally landed in Alberta Canada. I reckon that is just what they deserve, after greendays tribute a few years back. I cant think of a more deserving country, other than the obvious choices of Middle Eastern countries that were at the top of the list. I still think that we could salvage it with a few hundred yards of rubber bands, and a large tree, as we send it back to the Middle east, where their are a large group of people that are more deserving.
Wow, that almost sounded like profiling, or racism on a small scale (My blog isnt that big yet), but after the last decades events, one cant help but have an underlying hatred for Muslim's. As much as i try to convince myself, that 99% of muslim people, are human beings just like me, trying to survive in this crazy world, that nagging little hermit in the back of my head reminds me of the twin towers that used to be the World trade center.
Oh well, i can rest easy now, knowing that the darn 6 and a half ton satellite, traveling at 500 miles per a second, on a crash course with earth, has finally landed.
im sure that the scientist will swear up and down that they knew what was happening the whole time, and blame all of this fiasco on global warming somehow. More info here
So, who won the bet on the Irish polls ?

Coor's light and Anti-deppresant's

In this country, the pharmaceutical industries have been making a killing on Prescriptions, while the country goes deeper and deeper into debt. My solution is simple. A 6 pack of Coor's light costs around 7 dollar's a 6 pack, way cheaper than any anti-depressant out there on the market. Most of the alcoholics and drug abuser's in this country have been found to have some sort of chemical imbalance in their brain. By using drugs and alcohol, they are using a method called "self-medicating". What they are doing is slowing the brain down in order to think properly. I know, first hand that this works quite well, being an alcoholic myself, for many many years. You are able to reach a point where the alcohol makes you feel normal. When you dont have alcohol or drug's, you feel abnormal.
The pharmaceutical companies have been creating brain malfunctions for years now, and you have to wonder how we ever survived before this bombardment of drugs on the market were available. Sure, the quality of life has skyrocketed in the last 100 years, but this was during an era of no warning labels, and people still managed to survive. We live in a society of no accountability, and almost a faceless villian, with no boundaries. If Coor's were to market there light beer as an anti-deppresant, who would be their to stop them. WOuld we then have to lower the drinking age, and have the government medical aide paying for prescriptions. Where does it all stop ? More info here at http://goo.gl/fgd6c

Linux users and crazy blondes

Looking at my statistics page, and see a sharp decline in Linux users on the pie graph. So, where theheck are all you linux users out there hiding at ? Their has to be someone using linux out there, besides me right ?
i also see a sharp incline of Firefox users. Kudo's to you, for not adhering to the evil empire known as MS (really?)
Im hearing gunshot's now, so either the neighbors are drinking again, or someone didnt like my article on the satellite. Either way, the windows are going to be boarded up tonite, as a precautionary measure, just to be safe. Unnless the satellite takes out the trailer, i will be posting more on Monday, as i have invested a lot of time into this project, and need a few days off to spend with my crazy blonde haired girlfreind, commonly known as Teri, although she has other nicknames..hehehe
Speaking of crazy Blondes, just wanted to give Teri a shout out, for her inspiration, motivation and self control for not strangling me yet. She is such a sweetheart, and spends most of her day figuring out ways to make me happy. i am so grateful to have her in my life (no she isnt holding a gun to my head either), and consider myself a lucky man, and vow to do everything I can to make her life easier as well. So, here's to you Teri, my lover, my waitress, my chambermaid and my friend. Dont know where i would be today with your support.

NASA says DUCK!!!

Yowzer's Batman, we have a peice of space junk plummeting at us at incredible speeds, what shall we do ?
DUCK!!!
I was just reading about this article on some of my favorite news sites, and was baffled as to why, in this day and age, that it is more important to clear up the space junk, than the people of our country. We already know that we dont come first, as is evidenced by the Trillions of dollars that go out to Foreign aid, while we are losing jobs and our economy is falling, while we try to find creative and knew ways to screw people over (we're getting really good at it, by the way). But at least when our country is broke, we will have clear skies once again right ?
Astronomy Software!
This Satellite coming at us is some really scary stuff though. But dont worry, because the biggest peice only weighs in at 300 Lbs. Never mind the fact that it is moving at 5 miles per a second, and will probably be sort of hot, since it just blasted thru the atmosphere and all, and they are only estimating that around 26 peices of it will actually hit us. With those sort of odds, maybe its time to head to Vegas right ?
The UARS, or Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite, was first launched by NASA (Not Another Stupid Acronym), in 1991 by the space shuttle Discovery. NASA shut it down in 2005 after lowering its orbit to hurry its demise. With a satellite-retrieval mission ruled out following the 2003 Columbia disaster, NASA did not want the satellite hanging around orbit posing a debris hazard.

FaceBook changes

OMG, what the heck is up with FaceBook, and why the heck do they keep changing the site. They are fighting a battle with GooglePlus, on a platform that worked great, and GooglePlus was trying tlo strive for, only to change everything. They set the standards on Social Networking, creating a site that was free for all to use, and keep up with friends and family on a continuos basis, so why would they change from a Tuxedo into a pair of faded jeans, with a tag that know one has ever heard of ?
I have been reading rumours that GooglePlus is actually a product of The facebook creators, in a joint effort. I also find it interesting that, when you first sign up for FaceBook, Tom Anderson is the first friend listed in your friends list. Remember him ? Guess who showed up on GooglePlus when i signed up....
Interesting thoughts, from me to you.
Add likes to Facebook, to increase your market value.!
Beat Facebook addiction!

Ya have to wonder, just why Facebook, The leading Social networking onine site in the world, has suddenly decided to change the layout of their website, the same day that GooglePlus become available.They had the lead, they had the number, they even had the worlds attention, so just what possible reason could there have been. Is facebook really worried about the up and coming GooglePlus ? I see more and more posts on the FaceBook page about the changes they have made. And more people are getting frustrated with this. They tend to think that because they set the standards now in Social networking, which is true in a lot of aspects, they have to change things around every few months to make things better. What they are not realizing, is that they already were in the leading position to make and break the Social Networking market. Why change things that work already ?

Why all blonde haired women are crazy.

Just why all blonde haired women are crazy ? That is a question that man has been asking for generations. To tell the truth, Google informs me that it is a certain gene, made up in their DNA that causes the brain to produce less cells throught the developmental years.

Ok, I really dont know why, that all blonde haired women are crazy, but I bet that title really got your attention, and now that you continue to read every word that i type out here, I bet you can almost, just barely, hear the clacking of the keyboard as i enter each key, making more and more group of words, as I learn how to write better and better articles.

So, really, why do you continue to read this ? I know it cant be because I am some gifted writer, magically forming sentences as I type, that hypnotize you into doing things that you would otherwise not normally do (Bring beer). So just what is the reason ? is it because you are a friend of mine, that feels so bad for me, and my pathetic writing skills, that you feel obligated to continue reading ? I know that i seem to have just enough sense to hold the phone upright when I talk into it, and not upside down. I also figured out, all on my own, that when the keyboard is lying face down on the desk, it doesnt work very well, although very amusing to watch (Bring beer).

I have been babbling all day about this wonderful site that i found online, called wealthy affiliates, and going on and on and on (bring beer) about them, but the truth be told, they absolutley suck. They have brainwashed me, of all people, into beleiving that a dumb a** like me, could actually make money online using their simple methods. Well, so far, i have done everything listed in the tutorial, and have only made 3,500 bucks, which really sucks. Far from what was promised to me at the beginning, when i eagerly downloaded the material, bragging to all my friend that i was going to be the next internet millionaire, and someday buy facebook, just so i could legally wipe their servers, thereby taking over the world, in my evil plans (bring beer).

I hope you really didnt beleive that last paragraph. But really, why ARE you still reading this ? Dont you know i have no talent whatsoever, and am just babbling. Woooo, medicine time for theron, from the sounds of it. Maybe I should lay off the home made beer for a while, I think it may be creating fungi on my brain, and making my creative juices flow....hm, maybe it IS the fungi that is actually writing this, and i am just an empty shell. Be sure to take a close look, when I drive by in my new lexus convertible (bring beer) or I may just have to run you down, dragging your dead corpse meat sack underneath, leaving a trail of blood and human excrement behind, as i turn on the hwy to my new home, up on the hill.(bring beer)

Over at theronatwork, on the blogspot website, I have been blogging my experience's with different methods. I have to say, that it has been a real learning experience for me, almost like having an online tutor looking over my shoulder, offering little tidbits of advice. I also have to mention that so far, the people over at Wealthy Affiliates seem like a really good group. They are extremely helpful, and offer lots of good suggestions, some for free. I just ran across another user of WA on a blog, and followed the link to his page, and found a lot of good advice, all for no cost, no sales pitch, nothing. This group is a must-see if you are truly interested in learning, and have the time to dedicate to their methods, and dont like filling out surveys. And they are Chock full of good information, to stimulate the brain, and get the creative juices flowing.

Thanks for reading this, Theron (make beer)

rejected article

Everything I learned in kindergarten, I know about writing, or, WTH is he talking about ?

Once upon a time, before scolars and smarter people than me, started writing about their thoughts and idea's, there once was a train of thought that a person was born with a certain talent,whatever that may be. From the time, in early childhood, when they picked up a pencil, quill or brush, everything that was spewed forth was golden, magically appearing on the pages as the mind flowed continously (A bit much?) with every ounce of golden text it could muster, until at the end, laying across the desk exhausted, chest heaving, mind swirling in a drunken stupor, they had created the perfect document.

But seriously, we have been brought up our entire lives, to believe this sort of idea, that somehow, as we stumble thru our day to day existence, that we will one day have an epiphany, and without any effort, find our talent, and start producing endless ideas and concepts and art, without any effort. isnt that tragic ?

I was having a discussion with my son Tony, just the other day about this very concept, and he had mentioned that he had not found his talent in life yet. I was astounded at the idea of this. As I thought back, I wondered myself, just what was my talent ? What was my calling ? I have many things that interest me, lots of things I enjoy, and yet, I had not cultivated any of them into a usable method of creating, that I could share with the world. I assume that this Blog is a result of that line of thought, so to pay credit where credit is due, I would have to thank tony for planting this idea, and helping me to find a creative outlet that i could use to express myself, and place my wrath upon the world, for future generations to scoff at, so THANKS A LOT TONY!!! But really.... As I sit back on this day, and wonder just what the heck I am going to write (Type) about today, that could possibly be useful to someone, somewhere, that conversation with my son came to mind, and I wondered, what a blog article about writing blog articles written as a blog article might look like. Ok redundency filter just went off on my computer.... As I though back on my life, I wondered just what was my talent, my purpose, my "gift" per se. I have always been good in the artistic sense, but never quite to the point that I created a masterpeice on the first run. But, had I really ever cultivated any of these talents, to really get good at one. I never was a child genius (insert big word here), although I was reading the newspaper by the time I hit Kindergarten (see the relevance to the title ?). I have always thought that maybe, for some unknown reason, I had missed the turnoff, and stumbled into the unknown, blowing brain cells out the open window all the way, like little silver bubbles, making delicate little popping sounds as they went thru.

Oh, just to change the subject, in that last paragraph i had placed a bracket reserved for a really big word, i think that word is "Prodigy", so go ahead and mark your spot, and insert it in their now. Go ahead, i will wait........

Ok, ya got it ? Good job, thank you.

I hate it when my mind wanders like that and i cant keep a straight thought in my head. it is really racing now, so i think the juices are starting to flow now. I could write about farts for a few paragraphs, if that helps, and would hold interest more. or how my buttocks seem to be getting flatter as I sit in this chair, typing all this out. Or we could do a survey on wether your poop floats or not. But really, what is the point to all this ?

The point is, just get out there, find something that works for you, and start doing it. You are never going to be good at anything until you start doing it, repetitively, over and over again, until your eyes cross. That is what I am doing, and the result is what your reading, so see, it works. Unless of course i'm getting worse at this. Off on another "Bunny trail(TM)"

You have to wonder

you have to wonder, really, just what is a true calling in this day and age ? As children, we are brought up to beleive that everyone has a talent, or calling, and that someday, when you least expect it, it will magically appear, and before you know it, you will be among the ranks of Presidents and other landmark citizens, all making their mark on society.
Ok, im still waiting, but any minute Abe Lincoln is going to drive up in his Cadillac (You didnt thing he would bu a Ford, did ya ?), jump thru the window using his Ninja-Prez mad skillZ, and slap me around a bit, before laughing evilly and humping my leg.
And yet, here I sit.....or here!, or maybe HERE

My Daughter, the Bratling

Here I am, trying to work on my marketing idea's, and I have this little fifteen year old brat talking my ear off. God I love her. It wouldnt be so bad, if she didnt have the television blaring in my ear at the same time. I may have to eventually creat an office of some sort, so that I can work in peace. Learn how to get that little brat under control...LOL
I love this stuff so far, it has been a lot of fun typing out my idea's, and thoughts on all of this. if you are reading this, then my work here is complete. Now if I could just get a television in my daughters room, life would be good.....Theron

OnCashSurvey website

Well, here we are on day number six, and I have yet to be credited for the twenty dollars I did in surveys the other day for this site. The last post was when I was up to eleven dollars, and now things have seemed to stop, and it would seem that they know that as soon as I am credited, I am going to cash out, so they are holding all my earnings, for awhile. real shame too, because I was able to do the twenty dollars worth of surveys in a little over an hour, and would really love to give them a good review, but not if this continues for another day or two. Very frustrating to know that I have over thirty bucks coming for 2 hours of work, and not be able to collect because the site is holding you up.

Wealthy affiliates redux D'oh

Ok, I am now implementing a plan here, and going step by step thru the process of making tons and tons of money (not really0 thru their marketing plan. i know you just have to be getting tired of all this drivel, but just bare with me, for just a few more days, and we can experience this together, thru online marketing, taking it one step at a time. i know, i know, that it isnt going to make me rich, and most of these sites are scams, but what if...what if, there was at least ONE site out their that was legitimate, where an honest guy could make a few extra dollars, without worrying wether or not he was going to lose his shirt ?
That is where this blog comes in. I hope to compile a reasonable list of sites where a person can make a few extra bucks, without worrying about losing their hard earned cash.
Click Here!
One of my favorites is still InboxDollars, as well as sendearnings, which are both owned by the same company. I also have a soft spot (besides the one on my head) for onlycashsurveys.com, although I have over twenty dollars worth of surveys that are still pending, after 6 days, and you cant pay-out until you reach at least twenty bucks. i am currently at eleven dollars, so once they are approved, i will ahve over thirty dollars that i made doing surveys. So far overall, the big winner here has been inboxdollars, where i have received two checks and close to getting a third.
Ok, thats all i have for now, thanks for reading, Theron

Wealthy affiliates redux

This is my mind bending dive into online surveys, marketing, and different ways to make money online. I hope that by creating this page, someone somewhere will eventually be able to find a reliable source of information for different methods of making money online, considering all the different sources of mis-information that are out their nowadays.
Click Here!
Ok, i have been following the Wealthy Affiliates method of making money online, using Search Engine Optimization. After following their tutorial that I downloaded from their site, I have implemented all the suggestions that they offer. One thing I have noticed, is that their text editor is a real pissy butt, and whines about every little thing, including sentence structure. This is understandable of course, since you are writing a blog that should be readable to all viewers, but in the tutorial it mentions that you dont need any experience, and it doesnt matter wether you know how to write or not. After ten attempts to finally get my submission approved, I am now stuck in "pending" mode, regardless of the fact that the tutorial says that it only takes a few minutes. On the sight it mentions that it can take up to 24 hours. Very frustrating. i was hoping that I could get this process fairly quickly, but now it seems that this is not going to be the case.
Click Here!
Another little pet peeve i have about this method so far, is that the instructions are a bit confusing. Now, granted, i am not at the genius level, or even a harvard graduate, but I do conssider myself to be fairly intelligent, although a bit scatter brained at times. For that reason, i had hoped that this was something tht even the average joe, like myself, could accomplish. So far, even though I have followed all the recomendations, it has been a workout. i guess that if I stick with it, overtime i will start seeing some sort of income coming from this, but when is anyones guess. I dont expect to gte rich from this by any means, just to be a source of income that I can use to pay a few bills. Again, you get out of it, what you put into it.
Click Here!
What my opinion is so far on this subject, is that their is no such thing as free money. I have read the reviews of wealthy affiliates so far, and they were outstanding, as far as i could see. You get out of it what you put into it. I like the approach of being able to test the waters, with a marketing idea that you can try first to prove to yourself that it works, then join the site. That eases my mind to no end. I also like that fact that once you go thru the initial setup, you can reapply this method with minimal effort to start producing income, although I have yet to see this happen, but I am only on day number two, and just finished setting everything up. I will post again on this site as things progress, and hope to hav good results in the coming weeks.
Thanks for reading this, and good luck on all your ventures, Theron

YAOSS

I have been doing online survey sites now for several months, going thru the various methods, and survey sites, trying to find which are legitimate, and which ones are just after your money. I can say that out of hundreds I have looked at so far, only three survey sights have some thru at all. The first is:

InboxDollars: This site has a loooong waitin period before you can actually receive any money from them. waited almost 3 months to receive my first check. Once I did get my first payout, my status on the site changed to "Gold" member, and now I receive weekly payments from the. granted, it isnt a lot of money, but it buys smokes or gas when I need it. So far this month I have made a bit over 100 dollars from them, but the time spent seems like a lot. It definitly isnt an option unless you have no other work, or anything to do thru the day. I am currently working on my third payout from them. Their is also a 3 dollar fee to get paid out, if the amount earned is under 50 dollars. The one nice thing is that they credited three bucks to my account for being paid out. Strange but ok.

SendEarnings: This site is owned by the same people that do InboxDollars, so The rules apply to this one also. Wont make ya rich, but if you have the time to invest in it, you can make a few extra bucks a month.

OnlineSurveys: This site has a lot of surveys, although you will spend a lot of repetitive time qualifying for them. Also the payout is good, but it takes time for approval of your survey results once you have finished. This site offers PayPal as a payment method also, which the other two dont. It has been five days now, and I am still waiting for 20 dollars worth of surveys to be approved so i can payout, and will post more once I actually receive the money.

That is all i have for now, will post more later as I progress. i am also looking into Wealthy Affiliates, and will post more on that site when I learn more. Thanks for reading, Theron.

P.S. I aint rich yet either.......

Wealthy affiliates

 Ok, after doing much research for the past couple of days, I have decided to go ahead and give this method a try. i have created the Blog, sgned up for the streetarticles sight, started writing again, and done most of the required steps. Lets see the cash start rolling in now.
  I stumbled across wealthyaffiliates a couple of days ago, on a ssight dedicated to online scams, and came across this site. It had pretty good reviews, so I thought, what the heck  ? As long as i dont have to put any money out, or give bank information, why not give it an honest try. So that is what i will be doing today, giving it an honest try.
 I hope to report in the the next few days wether or not their method works. One thing that I did like, is that they let you download a PDF file, with step by step instructions, to show you one method of making money. Then, once you see that it works, you are encouraged to join their site, which gives even more methods to make money. I will let ya know f it actually works or not.

I hope to keep a fairly current list here of different survey sites, as well as my findings as i go through the different money making ideas that are available on-line.
