Happy New Year 2010 !!!

Happy New Year 2010 !!

As you can see, I have my grand doggies here today and tomorrow while their parents celebrate the New Year in Warm Sunny California :)

I wanted to do some work here today but finding it harder than I thought it would be. Keeping an eye on the Pup's (remember my back fence is down) and also keeping them from chasing the Cats .. so I've got my hands full for sure!!

Just wanted to wish you all a Very Happy New Year!
Stay safe and smart and always keep in touch with your family, friends, loved ones and of course your favorite bloggers, LOL

Something may come up later so I'll be back if it's important enough. Until then ... Happy Holidays!

Escape Escape Escape

Awww crap :(
Just finished my surfing for today.
I'll get right to the point:
1 - Received -0- earnings from NewSurfAge for the week because no new totems were bought. No money in equals no money out.
2 - Received 2 weeks worth of earnings from MyMarketShares ... but still not enough for me to cash out.
3 - Received -0- earnings today from Rollover-Ads ... again a problem with the script?
4 - Even my semi-private Club is having a hard time making money right now. So at least I'm not alone during this messy month of December.

I'll be back later with something happier, I hope. But we all know life isn't 100% fun and games and you just gotta accept the Good with the Bad. Heck, even a little Ugly once in awhile doesn't hurt either. hahaha

Go ahead ... make my day.


Cleaned up my side bar again. Ditched another profit share link. If any of them come back to life, I'll put them back. But the meantime, I don't want anyone joining stuff that doesn't pay ... ya know?


Speaking of paying, I'm really enjoying the HYIFund. I would not recommend it to those who like to play with thousands, especially since you do not get your spend back. But you do earn daily interest plus they give you $2.50 when you join. So this is a good one for the little guy and it's easy to promote since it's free and no risk to get started.


I just made a new batch of Chocolate Chip cookies that are SO good I could eat them all. Bought the dough from one of those Take n Bake Pizza places. Yum!


Man oh man I'm getting a lot of SPAM these days! You know, the fun thing about getting older is you remember a LOT of stuff, now that you have a long history of memory. haha


Tuesday, December 29, 2009


I received a lot of good ideas yesterday for a new name for my blog. Hermit Jim mentioned Keeping It Simple which of course made me think of "Keep It Simple Stupid".
So I've been waiting for something to jump out and grab me.
NO, not Gene Simmons ... that would be scary.


Been seeing a lot of interest in HYIFunds. Maybe cause it's free. Maybe cause they give us $2.50 to get started with. I really don't know why. I just hope they stick around after the New Year and continue growing.
I would be cautious at this point. And yes, I did "buy" into it, but not with much, OK?
*Afternoon Update: I requested a payment today and got it today! How's that for customer service?


No weekly earnings are showing yet at NewSurfAge. And no word from Gilbert either. Hmmm


My cat and I are having
Pop-Tarts for breakfast.

No wonder he's so fat :(

Speaking of fat, my squirrels are getting pretty big too. Maybe it's the peanuts? Although I do buy the Un-Salted ones for them. haha


Just finished my surfing over at Rollover-Ads and requested another payment. Although he seems to be a little over a week behind in sending them out (big sigh), I did see one paid from the 19th and I have one pending from the 22nd. So nothing we can do but surf and wait for news from Admin.


Decided to get in one last POKE for the day.
Hey PAC Admins: EL, Kazzy and helpers ...
this one's for you.

Sorry, just couldn't help myself after all those "promises" of refunds and not being able to finish what they started. Pay attention to the words, OK?

Night Night :)

Are We There Yet?

Only 4 days left for 2009.
It's about time!
I'm so ready for a new year I could just spit.

What started out as a pretty good year hasn't worked out that way. I could give you a list of "not so good" things that happened to me this past year, but I won't bore you with that. What's done is done and all we can do is look forward to a more productive and happier 2010.

Which reminds me ... I'm going to change the Name of my blog. Not the URL, just the name you see on top. I've been trying to come up with something creative and catchy, but my old brain just isn't co-operating.
So I'd love to hear some suggestions from you guys. Of course I want to keep "Blondie's" in the title ... but Blondie's WHAT? See what I mean? It's hard. LOL
Let's shoot for a January 1st deadline, OK? So put your thinking cap on and let me know what you come up with. Thanks in advance :))

Turn Out The Lights .. The Party's Over :(

Is it save to come out yet?

Hope you all had a good Christmas yesterday. Thanks to everyone who went out of their way to send me an e-card or personal greeting via email. Very much appreciated!

My cat must have been watching me post this morning.
Man, what a copy cat!

Can you see me now??

As it turns out, Lou Dog is coming to stay with me this afternoon and evening. So if I don't come back, then you know why.


It just occurred to me that TODAY is 10DollarsWonder Three Year Anniversary. Too bad we couldn't keep the pace up on that one. Oh well. It was good while it lasted.


Yep, PAC is over. About frickin time.
Well I won some, I lost some, and some I broke even in. Honestly, am glad I don't have to deal with them anymore.

Hi Everyone,

We hope you had a truly lovely Christmas with your families.

Regretfully Christmas was not good for business with our Programs. Almost all the members who joined with us again were like-minded in their strategy, get in and get out. so they were no redeposits and because the bulk of the big deposits were on day one, the programs went into a Cashflow problem immediately. The games were a complete non-starter.

We honestly thought there was enough goodwill amongst you to make this work but obviously we were wrong. So we will wind down the Programs. Everyone will be refunded their principals. However because most of the big deposits have been paid 138% - we can only pay about 70% to the rest of you.We will do this on Monday.

To those of you who still trusted us amid all the negativity please accept our humble apologies, we failed again.

This was our last attempt at setting things right and we now have to put matters at rest. There will be no more programs from us and no more talk of refunds. We'll stress now as we have done before that, we ran the programs in a fair, honest ethical way. The PPs , if they would, would testify to that . Almost as many of you made money with our Programs as those who lost. We have given our all to the Programs and regret that it has come to this but we truly hope we left some of our members if not all with something. Me2E will come through in the following months. WNP and TVIE are both great, working programs. Put in some effort and you will reap the rewards.

We know there are many of you who are realistic about how all this works and you are more welcome to keep in touch with us.

May 2010 be YOUR year, each and everyone of you. May you all succeed in realising all your goals, Financial and otherwise.

EL and the PAC Team.

Happy Christmas Eve Day

She's makin a list, and checkin it twice, LOL

Going over some things in my head today just to be sure I didn't forget anything and I think I'm OK. Need to bake some cookies later and that's about it. Whew!


Logged into both PacForAll and PacRevenueShare today. Saw that I completed my 13 days, requested a withdrawal, and received it within minutes.
So does that mean I'll be playing again?
Well I dunno. I seem to have lost interest and trust in EL and her programs. And there sure isn't much support in the forums either. So I'm taking a break for now.


Margaret at MyMarketShares forgot to push the button for us to receive last weeks credit. So next week, we'll be credited for two weeks of earnings. Umm ok


NewSurfAge weekly earnings were sporadic as far as some people seeing them and others having them rolled over automatically. Still no word from Gilbert on that.


Rollover-Ads is paying here and there and this person and that person. But doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason in the order that he's doing it in. Weird. And I'm still a ways away from breaking even. (sign)


The HYIFund is doing well, and for the free $2.50, it's hard to resist. I'm not getting too involved with it yet (money wise). Let's see how the new year goes first.


I had one squirrel come for peanuts this morning. Could barely see him in all that snow! They sure are cute jumping through it though. Hippity Hop Hop :))

Let It Snow Dino


Can't think of anything exciting to say today.
No planes to catch or fires to put out.
It IS snowing here .. again, and cold cold.
Deciding whether to shovel or use the snow blower.

I might be back if something comes up.
Have a nice day :)

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Some things are just messed up in my opinion.

The PAC girls (EL and Karen-support) are launching yet another new game today!
Where is it going to be?
Ummm, in the same PacForAll and PacRevenueShare sites?
Heck, they haven't even bothered to fix the old sites to reflect the new relaunch information. Still showing 12x12 in PFA and Plan A and Plan B in PRS. Duh!
No, I'm not donating to their cash grab this time. I've had enough.


I was busy wrapping gifts yesterday.
What I thought would take an hour or two, ended up being an entire afternoon!

Too bad I didn't have this little guy to lend a helping hand, lol


Requested and received my first payout from HYIFunds yesterday. So far, so good :)


Got another Snow Storm and Deep Freeze coming in tonight. Supposed to last all week too. Brrrrr

Might have to unpack that new thermal underwear I bought, eh?


Malfunction at NewSurfAge again this week. Our earnings were rolled into our totems last night without giving us the option to cash them out. Well it was only 2% for the week so it's not a big deal for me and hopefully wasn't for you either.


Just requested a small payment from the "Club". I have one more tax payment to make this year and those dollars will sure help. Should be able to start building on it again come January, I hope. Thanks "G" for running a good honest program.

Good Morning

Thanks to those of you who joined HYIFunds from my link. There are a few days left for their 12 Days of Christmas Contest and I apologize for not showing you the details earlier but just saw them myself yesterday. So here you go:

With Christmas just around the corner, we will soon be starting our annual twelve days of Christmas promotion.

How it works:

Each day, for the twelve days leading up to Christmas, $50 in bonuses will be distributed to HYIFund members. All members with an active investment are eligible. On the First day of the promotion (December 14th), $50 in bonuses will be divided between 12 winners. On the 15th, it will divided by 11 members. This will continue each day, culminating with a single winner of $50 on Christmas Day.

The winner on Christmas day will likely be a member who has been active in our threads on one of the many investment forums. By actively posting, you greatly increase your odds of winning the grand prize.

If you have any questions regarding this promotion, or anything else related to HYIFund, be sure to let us know.

Happy Holidays

And as far as posting goes, I've been active in this MMG thread, and no, I haven't won anything yet.
PS, you only need a dollar deposit to be active. Plus they give you $2.50 to get started. Just remember this is December so please be careful with your spend there. Once we're into the new year, I might be a little more comfortable. OK :)


Got another payment from Gold Nugget Invest while I slept. YaY! I actually tried out their exchange service this time and it worked like a charm. Kudos to GNI :)

Over The Hump

--- I'm more than half way through the relaunched PRS and PFA programs, so it's all downhill from here. Will let you know when I get paid.

--- I am NOT joining the new Games that EL (of PAC fame) announced. She's launching one before Christmas and one after. No thank you. I'll keep my money in my pocket for now.

--- EPPXtra numbers haven't moved in 4 days.

--- EPP numbers haven't moved in 2 weeks.

--- Rollover-Ads continues to plug along at 1% daily and is still paying. Not sure how much longer that can go on though. I recently had queries about what the 'real deal' was there, put 2 and 2 together, and came up with the correct answer. I won't share any more than that right now. Just know that if this one comes up short, the Admin is not to blame.

--- On a lighter note, I'm getting a good response to HYIFunds from my advertising and sharing here in my blog. Remember it's free to join and they give you $2.50 to get yourself started. So get registered, set it to compound, and let it ride. You've got nothing to lose.

--- "50 First Dates" movie just came on the TV. Funny how I find it distracting even though I've seen it 50 times and know all the lines by heart.
Here's a song that plays at the end of the movie. Very appropriate tune by "Brother IZ". Enjoy :)

Was out shopping today for as long as I could stand it.
Not my fa
vorite thing to do, ya know?
But at least it's FUN when you're shopping for someone else ;)

So I'll be back tomorrow with some updates.

Corrected Yesterdays Post

The HYIFund I told you about yesterday, does take Alert Pay also, so I corrected my post today.

Just remember this IS December so don't go hog wild on any spends. Yes they've been around for a few months in the forums, but we still need to be careful this month, right?

Safest thing to do is Join, Get your $2.50 Free, set your account to compound and see where it goes in the new year.

One more thing, they do pay a referral commission but it's not mentioned anywhere on the site and I'm not sure of the amount. 5% maybe? Ok then :))

-- Heard from a player in MMG that said Yes, ref. comm. is 5% and it is NOT paid on the $2.50 your referral gets just for signing up.

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Took The Plunge :)

I'm not in the habit of joining new programs in December, but this one was shown to me by a trusted friend and reader (thanks Greg), so I figured what the heck.
It's called High Yield Investment Funds or HYIFunds.
It is a HYIP that pays a variable interest rate daily to your account.
You do Not have to surf. YaY
The site says they've been around since 2004, but I find that hard to believe. The thread for them in MMG was just opened in July of this year, so you do the math.

Minimum deposit (when you decide to) is only 1$.
Your initial deposit is not returned to you, but your purchase never expires either.
They are doing a promo right now and giving new members $2.50 in their account to get started. So you can join for FREE, get the $2.50, set it to compound, then if they're still around in the new year, add some funds then, lol

They take Alert Pay, Liberty Reserve or HD-Money (whatever that is :)
And I believe you do need to invest at least $1 before you can start withdrawing your profit. Yes, just read that in the "Terms".

Now I know this isn't a great month to join a new program, with all the scams opening and closing this month. And I sure didn't put any big bucks in this one, but figured it was worth a shot and could pay off eventually.
So take a peek if you like. The site itself is just too simple. Nothing complicated in this one at all.
FAQ's are listed in the 'Support' Link.
Everything else is on the front page.
Plus they're having a 12 days of Christmas give-a-away.

Check it out if you're interested and have a great day!

AdShares4U is Toast

"But also, due to the huge drop down in purchases of ad packs, Adshares for you is unable to continue the revshare part of this program. AS we are all aware, we depend on purchases of ad packs to continue the Revshare part of this program and as there are no more ad pack sales generated we there suspend the revshare part of this program until things improve in future and we start generating sales again.
For now, I want to thank all our members for their support and look forward to when we will continue to revshare part of this program again.
Thanks for now and have a wonderful festive period.

I hope you all got some profit out of this one. These Revenue Share programs just aren't cuttin it for me, you know?


--- Zooloot Chocolate finally sent my 5 bucks. Too bad I had to remind her twice.

--- Officially Canceled my website today.

--- Fed the birds and the squirrels.

--- My EPPXtra numbers haven't moved in 4 days. Still at 467 waiting in Phase 2.

--- NewSurfAge continues to drop. This past week we earned 5%. Could pick up again after Christmas I suppose. Don't forget today is cashout/rollover day.

--- Refund Lists for the original PFA and PRS have been sent to members via email. You do need your ID number to see if you're listed. If you don't know where to find your ID number: after logging in, click on the arrow on the left side of the blue bar that says "Personal Data". It's inbetween 'Active Investments' and 'Your Wallet'. ok?

One Last Reminder .....

that this link will be disabled in about 2 more days. So please remember to bookmark me at: if you wish to find me in the future. Thanks :)


I started a small project around the house today, and as always one project turned into about five. So I'm here, but not here. haha I'm checking mail and that's about it.
So have a nice day :))


Shoot, who do you trust these days?
See that 100 Chocolate Recipe link here on the right? Well I bought into it months ago for 5$. The price has gone up a little since then but that's not the reason for my post.
On Dec 2nd I asked for my 5$ payout (from RC that I earned). On Saturday the 5th Sylvia wrote to me, said they were behind, and to look for it on Monday or Tues. Now it's Monday of the NEXT WEEK and I still don't have a payment.
Well I wrote to her again but wanted to let you know before I delete the link.


Sunday, December 13, 2009


Sorry I'm a little late with this.
Will be back to 'work' tomorrow.
Have a good Sunday :)

Man Not Included

Went shopping yesterday and bought myself some Camouflage Thermal Underwear. Now it's warmer here today, but I wanted to be ready for the next deep freeze that comes around. So this is what I bought .. but they wouldn't let me take the man home, lol

--- Bad News on the Mouse. One of the cats got to him overnight before I was able to catch him. Now I need to shampoo my carpet. Need I say more?

--- OK, I finally cycled phase 1 in EPP-Xtra so at least I should get my $25 back. But yesterday at this time, the waiting number for phase 2 was 468. Hmmm
Purchased On Phase Earned To Cycle
Phase 1 ($25.00) $100.00 Cycled
Phase 2 ($75.00) $0.00 467 positions left

--- EPP is at a stand still. Same numbers for a week now.

--- I see a little bit of interest in the two PAC re-starts, PAC-RS and PacforAll. I personally bought one position in each. It's kinda like watching the soap operas where you've got an idea of what's going to happen next, but hate to turn it off until the final episode. Stay Tuned :)

--- Besides PAC-RS, I'm still surfing in Four Revenue Share programs. Will someone please remind me how boring these are the next time I talk about joining one?
NewSurfAge is still at the top of the chart money wise, but it's starting to lose momentum also. Hopefully they will all survive through this month, but chances of that are not looking so good. Just my opinion, OK?

--- Here's a surprise. I threw some stale potato chips out on the patio this morning for the birds. Well it was 10:00 AM and the Cats were getting antsy to go outside. So I checked the patio to see if the birds had come and gone yet.

And look who showed up? Poor little guy.
My guess is that he's been hiding for the past week in a warmer place without food or water. He sure looked scraggly and skinny today. Wish I had a water dish out, but I didn't know he was coming. Next time.

--- Here's blondies version of "Deck The Halls"

Deck the surfs with loads of scammers
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Where is Maxwell's Silver Hammer?
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Here's my Surf now spend your money

A Mouse in the House

Been kinda busy this morning trying to the catch the little mouse that keeps running across my window sill, almost like he's teasing me saying "na na na na na .. you can't catch me!"
So I've put the catcher in the corner and waiting to hear it click. Once I get him, he'll just have to go back outside. Better than having the Cats finding him first, right?


For you players (or lookie loo's) keeping track, here's my EPPXtra stats today.
Phase 1 ($25.00) $0.00 32 positions left

And for the first EPP ...
Phase 2 ($30.00) $0.00 9466 positions left

Same as the last what, 5-6 days now? Borrrrrring!


Oh man .. you're not going to like this.
Everything has been Re-Set to a Big Fat ZERO in my PAC-RS account. Yours too I would imagine. So when they say re-start, they really mean it! Arghhhh!!

Just in, official launch notice from EL:

Hi Everyone,

PRS is Re-Launching tomorrow with the following Plan:

11% x 13Days = 143% - Payout = 136% Members - 7% - Reserve
5% RC - PP Specific
Payouts on Expiration
Min $5 Max $15000
$3500 Daily Withdrawal Limit
Payouts within 3 Business Days.

PPs accepted - STP and LR.
Surf 20 sites to Earn.

Deposits will be enabled at 4.00 pm GMT.

Earnings are post 24 hours from the time of Deposit.

All Accounts have been zeroed but we have your records safely and a Refund List has been extracted. The Refunds will commence next week when the Games open.

PFA is Re-Launching withe the same Plan too.

We look forwarding to working with you all and May Success always be Yours!

Refund is a good word.
Good Luck if you're owed one!

PS, I try to keep an open mind about these programs. I really do. And if you're one of the fortunate folks who played the game early and smart, then you probably cashed out more than you put in. So will you be playing again?
I haven't decided yet myself. I need to sleep on it.

Forget The Snuggie ...

Bring me the Long Johns!!

It's -5 F out there today (-20.55 C) and even the squirrels are keeping their little hands clenched up against their chest to keep them warm. Poor little guys.


Received quite a few emails from Google today. Looks like someone was trying to hack into my g-mail or my Blog account. Now WHO would want to do that to me? Shame on them.


So did we all get that exciting email from EL about re-starting PRS and PFA, remodeling of EPP, and launching a New Game just in time to make money before Christmas? hahaha!
I think they've lost their minds. Seriously. How many programs can they open and have fail (except for the first handful of special members) before their conscience kicks in and they realize that they're hurting more people than they're helping?
You know, some people really rely on these programs to help them out in this sad economic situation we're in. Others just enjoy playing for the fun of it. But when the Admin actually writes this in their promotional email: "
spend ONLY what you CAN afford to lose." ... it's one of those "things that make you go Ooooo".
Am I being too hasty? Your comments are welcome.


EPPXtra ...
65 positions left

EPP hasn't moved an inch in 4 days


Someone just wrote to me and mentioned 10DollarsWonder so I decided to check my numbers and see if anything was moving. Spotted this:

News update 12/01/09 - Promotion extended to 12/31/09

Holy Cow! That will be an 9 month promotion IF it's not extended for another year! Let's see ...
- the ticket system has been in the process of being updated all year long and still the Admin doesn't answer tickets.
- e2ePay was supposed to be moved over to 10centclub since March of 2008.

So what used to be a good earning program has turned into a loser in my opinion. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

AimTrust is a SCAM

And I can only assume that since some spammer tries to post an AD for it every day in my blog comments. Well guess what? It only takes 2 seconds for me to hit the "REJECT" button.
Go somewhere else pal. You're wasting my time, and yours.


It has been so cold and and snowy lately. 5 degrees right now (-15C) and the poor little birdies can't even find food. So I bought a bag of generic Puffed Rice for $1 and they seem to enjoy it. Should last all week too.

Thanks Paul for the Ice Age pic. (Paul lives in Hawaii so he has no clue how I felt at 6:20 this morning shoveling snow)


66 positions left to cycle phase 1 in EPPXtra. Whatever.

And the original EPP hasn't moved for 3 days. What a joke.


I keep surfing in PAC-RS thinking that one of these days a miracle will happen and the program will start working again and paying. I kinda doubt it though. The Admins keep opening new stuff and forgetting about what they told us.


Logged into my Private Surf this morning and it says: Your Account Is Suspended. What? Where did it go?!? hehe Just kidding. I was not in shock since I knew that my account was going to be transferred from the Surf to the Club. You guys know what I'm talking about, right? OK good.
PS, just received a payment from both sites. Thank You Gord. I'll save it to pay for my heating bill. Brrrrr


Just heard Tiger Woods is 9 over par now! Geez Louise! How many woman did he think he needed? My impression of him has sure deteriorated since all these stories started. Bummer.


I am not a rock. (makes me think of Richard Nixon saying: I am not a crook) LOL
But it is a winters day, in a deep and dark December.

Just a Short Story

I received a spam AD the other day in my email box. I didn't know who it was from, so I opened it up.

The spammer foolishly cc'd a long list of folks in his Ad so that I could see all their email addresses right there in front of me.

Now I could have copied that list (since it was probably a good list of "leads") and used it myself. But I didn't.

Even though I don't personally know the spammer who sent it, I respect the fact that he might have worked hard for that list and it may be his bread and butter.
You know what they say, "the money is in the list", and I am not the type of person to steal from others. So I wrote back to him and told him the mistake that he made and also to take me off his list, lol

Now why am I telling you this?

Well because something similar happened to me a while back, but the shoe was on the other foot. I was the one with the list and another person very sneakily figured out how to steal them from me ... (Yes, I was tricked)

So knowing the effects that it can have on ones feelings (and pocket book), I could never do that to someone else. Not an unknown spammer nor a so-called friend.

Remember boys and girls ...
- Don't take what is not yours.
- Treat others as you'd like to be treated.
- Don't lie, cheat or steal just to benefit yourself.
- Don't pretend you're better than the other guy.
- Always give credit where credit is due.

End of Story (for the few readers I have left)

If you want to become whole,
let yourself be partial.
If you want to become straight,
let youself be crooked.
If you want to become full,
let yourself be empty.
If you want to be reborn,
let yourself die.
If you want to be given everything,
give everything up.

- from The Tao Te Ching, translation by Stephen Mitchell

The Season .. or is it The Year?

This business (if thats what you call it) sometimes leaves me speechless. A lot of one liners come to mind (after reading an email) but I'll hold off... at least till tomorrow.

Getting Closer

--- EPPXtra stats today:
Phase 1 ($25.00) $0.00 96 positions left
And I read that Ivan cycled phase 1, (yep, saw it in MMG this morning) Congrats!

--- EPP however is a lost hope with 9467 left. And did they really make the same mistakes with their second program as the first?!? Sheesh! Where are those girls? I'm about ready to duke it out with them.

Laptop Problems :(

Been trying to get here all day but my laptop keeps shutting off. And it's not hot in here. I'm freezing ass with the furnace turned down, dressed like an Eskimo and have 2 fans blowing on the PC. My fingers are like frostbitten, lol. I'll be back as long as I can stay up. If not, see you tomorrow.


While I'm still here, I read an update from EPPXtra. This part got my attention:
We are putting on hold our plans of putting members in TVIE and concentrating on building EPPXtra. We have just added $275 x 6 = $1650 to the Matrix and this has cycled one more member"
So I re-checked my own account today. What was 216 left to cycle earlier is now down to 104. Seriously? Maybe I'll get my money back after all.
Ivan, you were ahead of me right? Where you at?

GNI and more

Received a really good newsletter from my friend Gord yesterday. He talked about his experience (so far) with GNI - Gold Nugget Invest and I really enjoyed reading about it.
I too was skeptical at the beginning when I joined in Dec of 2008. I even had a couple of bloggers warning me that it was a scam. "Get your money out ASAP!"
OH NO! What do I do?!?
Well you know what? I didn't lose that 90 bucks. Never could figure out how to release that money after the first 30 days (duh), so I just kept playing with it. And TG for my ignorance. I've been playing with that money (and more) all year long. Of course I'm in profit and my "deposit" there is now much more than that original 90 bucks.
Now, none of us know how long this one will continue and I'm certainly not saying that you should spend your Christmas money there, but I just felt the need to reiterate how happy I have been with GNI all year long!
How I play my cards is ... make a new purchase every couple of weeks (with earnings) then withdraw for a couple of weeks. That way I'm still building my account while enjoying the extra bucks in my pocket.
They still don't have a new banner since they updated their back office, else it would be posted here. Well, maybe soon :)


I have a car today so off to PetSmart I go. Besides buckets of much needed kitty litter, I'll be shopping for Kitty and Granddoggie Christmas gifts. Hope I don't get carried away like I always seem to.


OK you can poke fun of me now. I realize I screwed up and will NOT do it again. Two day stats from EPPXtra :(

Oh and the Original EPP has NOT moved an inch since yesterday :(

Not Lookin So Good AKA Three Little Words

A-oh. EPPXtra after 24 hours:
Phase 1 ($25.00) $0.00 238 positions left
It's my own fault. I didn't realize they were going to use the same asinine repurchase method as they did in EPP. Argh!


Listen up at the 15 second mark on this video. (Children cover your ears). Same as what I've been saying all morning about Myself, the PAC girls, Tiger Woods, the crazy Squirrel that came out on a 17 degree F snowy day looking for peanuts, and last but not least, a stupid blog post I read last night!! Some things just get under my skin, ya know?

But hey... have a nice day :)))

Going For It

Yeah I decided to go for it. Heck, if I don't, I'll never know what the outcome could have been. So am registered and my wallet is funded with $25 bucks. Launch is at 11:00 EST and I will be there to buy my spot.
Hope this turns out to be a good decision.
Here's my link if you wish to join me in EPPXtra.
Thanks and Good Luck to anyone who plays.

Phase 1 ($25.00) $0.00 465 positions left

Well that felt like a lifetime, lol
For the first 10 or so minutes after 11:00, still got the blank page when I tried to buy a spot. Finally I decided to log out and back in. The page came up after that but then I got "server too busy". hahaha Kept trying till I got it. Made my purchase at the time shown above. Whew! That was fun and aggravating at the same time.
NOTE: you're buying 1 position even though the stupid $ sign is there.

Update: 6 Hours after purchase :)
