Dog O'Lanterns ?

Happy Halloween !

And how cute are these?
Someone's got talent, that's for sure :)

Thanks to my friend Paul for sending all of the above pics.

Since I posted the pumpkins, Jay, a reader in MI sent me more.
(Can you tell I don't feel like "working" today?)

"Artist Ray Villafane began carving pumpkins on a lark for his art students in a small rural school district in Michigan .
The hobby changed his life as he gained a following online and unlocked his genuine love of sculpting.
Here are images of pumpkin carvings Villafane created over the past five years."

Trick or Treat! Now, that's scary!

But seriously, what would Halloween be
without David Letterman? hehe

Not much to talk about today.
Spent some time 'surfing' to build up some credits for when our new HYIP opens ... which won't be for a few days now. The Admin still has a lot of work to do on the site and we don't want to rush anything that might cause an error. So Nov 1st could turn into Nov 2nd or 3rd or ??? That's OK. I'd rather do it right the first time.
Have a good night :)

Four Heads are better than One

Had a brainstorming session this morning with the Admin of the New HYIP (that I'll announce next week), and two other folks. It was a great 'chat' and I really do think you guys are going to like this one!
Can't really share anything else right now but do stay tuned for the latest :)
Oh and thanks to all who have asked to be added to my Alert List. Once we launch, I will send an Alert out as fast as I can, ok? Cool.


So I see that poor Randy of Funds-o-Matic has his hands full with the latest Alert Pay restrictions. (members of FOM see his email). The way I'm reading it, I can still make just as much money. I'll just need to invest more often since there is a limit on the amount of "earnings" we can receive now (including referral commissions).
Well, what can you do? You can't fight City Hall (as the old saying goes). So it's OK and I know Randy will do what's best for all of us.


Honestly, I don't know why Carrie at Ad2Million insists on mentioning me every time she updates. I'm happy that she does but I never asked for any recognition. And why she volunteers me for things surprises me too, LOL.
Over 60 days and growing strong:
We are now over 60 days and growing strong with over 1,000 members. All positions are cycled everyday. All withdrawals are paid on time. We now are a true 2% daily cycler.

This is true. Over 60 days now, 2% daily, never missed a beat! Thanks to Carrie and all our 1000+ members!


Just got some GREAT news from Gord re the GBC (easy 40 plan) board positions in Karus! YaY!!!

Hello GBC Members.

Some long awaited good news as the new Board game site was tested today and GBC has been given the green light to resume placing positions on the 40 Board tomorrow morning. It will be a busy day and looking forward to that.

With that members positions will begin to move once again after a nearly two week change over to a new enhanced script that supports the Board Game. Updates to follow as we get back in action and push members around and up through the Boards.



Just want to remind you guys of something since I am not aware of how many "veteran players" read my blog compared to "newbies" (as they call it), and that is:

Disclaimer: The information was obtained from sources believed to be reliable and we do not guarantee its accuracy. Some programs may be illegal depending on the laws of your Country. Past Performance of any of the programs is not a guarantee of the same or similar future performance. Do not spend what you cannot afford to lose and have fun.

That pretty much sums it up. I've had good luck here over the years but once in a while, you'll see an "Idiot" post from me when an Admin does something stupid which causes us to lose our money. It does happen from time to time even though I do try to be careful in what I share with you.
But there are no guarantees on anything we do here in these types of programs. Just realize that going in, spend only what you can afford to lose, get into profit as quickly as you can, don't get greedy wanting more and more else you could be left holding the bag. Then once you're in profit and playing with house money, you can Whoo Hooooo!
With a little luck, we can help it out. We can make this whole damn thing work out :)

It's Coming Along Nicely

Still helping test the new HYIP program (with a little help from my friends). It's coming along nicely and I can't wait for launch so I can share all the details with you.
I'm hooked on the Plan with the Twist, but we'll see. Still in the tweaking phase so stay tuned as we progress.


Well I figured GrapeVineFunds was toast, then I read this newsletter which pretty much confirmed it:
Not my favorite subject by a long shot but it has to be done. As I figured, both Premier League Shares and GrapeVineFunds, which was a bitter pill to swallow, have run out of funds. The Admin of PLS updated that a recovery might be possible if Alertpay returns alleged stolen funds. I figure both will close the doors and having previous contact with the Admin(s) will not bother to support them again.
Thanks for that info Gord, saved me trouble of searching it out. But damn! I hate crappy news!


Everything else listed here on the side is doing just great.

- Just got paid from GWDC. Pretty fast too!
- Have a payment request into Funds-o-Matic which I'm sure will be received tonight as well.

So I guess that's it for now. Oh and .....

Heads Up Folks and Anniversaries

Been busy today helping to test a new site.
Heads Up on this one as I believe it'll be a very good program!

An old friend of mine (and John's) will soon be opening a new program. It's been in the planning stages since March and John (js-micronuts) actually helped with the plans for this one.

It will be a long term program offering from 1% - 2% for 90 days, and another plan with 2% for 60 days with a "twist" (personally my favorite ... maybe because I'm twisted, ha!). The 60 day plan is a new concept that I don't think I've seen anywhere else. Could make history with that one eh? LOL

- Four plans to choose from, affordable for everyone.
- Compounding will be available through your member area.
- Will use the e-wallet format.
- Accepts AP, STP, LR and PM

So we've got a tentative launch date for November 1st.
Be sure to keep an eye on this blog for updates, ok? And I've been saving my next "Alert" for this one too. You guys know I don't Alert for just anything, right? Only the good stuff.


- Happy Anniversary to Funds-o-Matic. Four months old today and still running like a deer! Thanks Randy for hanging in there with all of us these last four months. Looking forward to 4 more, or maybe even 4 more years? Well in any case, it's been great fun and am looking forward to the future in FOM.

- Happy Anniversary to Ad2Million - Two months old today and still paying that 2% daily with no gaps ever! I did receive payment from A2M today and I must admit, I couldn't be happier with the site and with Carrie the Admin. She's running a good show and mentioned that she will put a News Update on the site soon. Also she tells me there will be NO changes to the program. Yippee!

- GWDC-online is back and beautiful. Running like a well oiled machine today. Thanks to Albert for getting it all fixed up and keeping us in the loop through email updates.

- Gord has been biting at the bit to get into the K-game server to load us all up in the Game. As he mentioned in his updates, you don't need to worry about that. He's taking good care of all the folks who joined the "game" through the Grand Bank Club site. Ahhhh I love it when someone else does all the work.

Monday, October 25, 2010

Are we up? Are we up?

- Been getting the word that the GWDC-online site is back up. Been checking myself and it's finally propagating in my area, although a little intermittent right now. So if it's not up for you yet, check again a little later. My understanding is the Admin "Albert" changed hosting a couple of times to get the right one. Hope it's a done deal now.

- Received a nice payment from Randy at Funds-o-Matic last night. Looking back at my stats, tomorrow will be 4 months running! I couldn't ask for a better program or Admin right now.
So glad I got involved here ;)

- Speaking of long running, Ad2Million will be 2 months old tomorrow and still kickin out that 2% daily. Membership is growing steady and quickly approaching 1000 members. Paying as fast as I can hit the request button too, LOL Nice job Carrie, keep up the good work.

- Will have news soon about GBC and the Prosperity Game once they are given permission to enter the "game" and place our positions on the board. Did I hear some payouts are right around the corner? Yippee!

Dear Albert of GWDC, the attackers of your site wanted me to send you this song. Yes, they wish to be forgiven and they would like to see us move forward just like it never happened.
I'm game :)
(ps, you know I made that up. I would never be involved with attackers but it sounded like a nice gesture)

All Together Now

Was thinking about this the other night, which of course got me singing.
- Funds-o-Matic is paying me 1% daily (7% weekly).
- Ad2Million is paying 2% daily.
- GWDConline is paying 3% daily.
I hope someone comes up with a 4% pretty soon, LOL

I'll be back in a bit. Slept for almost 12 hours last night so feeling much better today :) Heck I even took the time to reply to the Boxbe user!


GWDC-online is still Offline. Go figure :(
URL doesn't work. IP addresses don't work, neither one.
From what I understand he's changing hosting services so when I know more, I'll let you know. Well better now than later right? Get these nagging little issues out of the way early.


I get a Virus Warning when I try to log into GrapeVineFunds. Has that not been fixed yet? Maybe I'll have someone else log in for me to see if I have any earnings in there. What a mess eh?


Have noticed a lot of new "inactive" referrals in Ad2Million these days. Am wondering if they're not receiving their 'activation email'? You don't have to wait for that, you know? Just go back to the site and log in with the same username and password you first created. You should then get a message that says something like "Click here to activate your account". Do that and you're good to go :))


That song is just too cute not to post the full version. Been singing it all day long while the Cats cover their ears with their little paws, and if you've ever heard me sing, you'd know why. So might as well have a little fun on a Sunday right? You know what they say about "all work and no play". OK then :)

GWDC-online has been having a rough time trying to keep things up since their launch yesterday. If you've already joined and can't access the site today, use this:
Hopefully that will work for you until the Admin gets things straightened out on his end. Thanks :)


Those who use Boxbe to protect themselves from spam (or whatever it does), do whatever you need to do to pre-approve my email address before you send me an email and expect a reply. Not too much to ask is it?

Sorry if I seem a little crabby today. I got no sleep last night; today is the 23rd; and I've answered 2 more emails from folks asking 'have you seen js?'. Well I just hope those who visit his blog and notice that it's not been updated for a long time, think to contact me or one of the other bloggers he's got listed on the site. Else they will never know.

New Program Launch - GWDC

Was given a heads up this morning about a new program launch. OK am listening. It's not a fast cycler or a revenue share cycler, lol. It's more of a semi-slow runner which should give good results and last longer than the quickies we've seen as of late.
So here is the new GWDC-online:

- One simple plan pays 3% daily for 40 calendar days
- Principal is included in the 3% (120% ROI)
- Minimum purchase $5 - $10K cumulative
- Accepts AP, LR, PM and GDP
- Withdraw minimum .10 cents LR and 1.00 AP
- Purchasing from Account Balance IS allowed
- Pays a 5% RC on 'new' spends
- And of course, it's a HYIP, no surfing required

Do they say how they're making the money for you? Well maybe, but I don't pay too much attention to that since most of us know where the majority of the money is coming from, right?

Because I trust the person who showed it to me this morning, I already joined and made a small spend. Am anxious to read the review from Paul at MNO once it's completed. Also interested to see how it's accepted at the major forums. Positive posts can make a big difference in how well the program takes off and stays popular.

Even though I don't know the Admin personally, my Upline says: "Yes, he's launched another program that he ran honestly and though it didn't catch on it looks like everyone was pretty much paid." So that's good enough for me. I'm in and of course I'll update you as we roll :))


Hate to put an ugly post in with a good post, but I have to. Should have listened to my gut about this one, but I got in early, and was off and running before I knew what I know today. Anyway here's the latest update from the GrapeVineFunds Admin. You can believe it or not. I'll decide later when I see how much money he manages to recoup for the members. Sheesh!

We have a problem, today we had a security breach and to be honest I do not know how it happened but some one has managed to clear out our AP, STP and LR accounts, in short we have been stripped of all our money. I am currently in talks with all 3 PP's to try to recover the funds and up to now STP have more or less said they will return our funds and I think Alertpay will recover them but as for Liberty reserve they are not as helpful and I am worried that we will not recover a huge amount of money.
The problem arises from someone who obviously uses Moneynewsonline as a front and we are tracking him down, in the meantime please be careful as we also believe that he has sent out e-mails from GVF with a virus attached, what sick people we have on the internet.
We will not be able to make any payments except STP until this is sorted out and I am asking you all to patient whilst I sort out this matter, hopefully it will be resolved quickly, please do not be negative as we will make sure we make the payouts as soon as possible.
Please feel free to ask if you are worried, I am not going anywhere and will do my best to get our money back.

So Ryan, how does someone manage to hack into all 3 of your pay processor accounts for this program? An inside job maybe? Who's running this show besides you? Huh?


On a happier note, my favorite programs are running great! Ad2Million, Funds-o-Matic, GBC's Easy40Plan & TeamCa$hCow to name a few. These are all run by Admins that I know and am comfortable with. Wish I could say that about everyone.

Karus aka the K-Game site is officially open now and Gord will be placing our new $40 board spots in the game tomorrow. I have a few positions already through both GBC and The Prosperity Game, so am looking at a nice long journey with this one. You can read all about it at GBC's Blog Page. Cool.

I have a nice story to tell you about Randy Mitchell of Funds-o-Matic. But will wait until everything is settled to share the details. It'll warm your heart ... trust me.


What's that old saying? Nice Guys Finish Last?
I really don't like being taken advantage of. And I don't like to see my fellow bloggers, promoters and friends being taken advantage of either. But some of these Admins are not what they appear to be. We need to learn who they are and how to avoid them in the future ... like the bubonic plague. hahaha

Ad2Million and other Cyclers

It will be 8 weeks old tomorrow.
We have 910 members as of right now.
Yes am talking about Ad2Million that hasn't skipped a beat since it launched. Who da thunk it eh?

Latest update in the member area (which is now over 3 weeks old) reads:
"Positions are cycling consistently:
All positions are cycling consistently since we opened 30 days ago. Many members are starting to get paid. We now are truly a 2% daily cycler
( Click here for our 2% daily calculator ) and getting more and more attention on the NET.

Please spend a few minutes and visit Blondie's blog page: She is a well known and highly reputable on-line marketer. She is a very professional, responsible and extremely experienced on-line promoter. I am really sure that she will gain your confidence with ad2million."

I had to laugh when I read the part about me. Guess she doesn't know me very well, LOL. Just kidding. I did help her get things ready for launch, and am glad I did since it seemed to go pretty smooth on that day. And here we are, almost 8 weeks later, still running smooth as silk with earnings and payments done daily. Right on. Couldn't ask for much more, could ya?


Which brings me to another subject ... all these New Fast Cash Cyclers launching. What the heck is going on with that?!?

Couldn't help but get interested in one that pre-launched last Friday. I almost allllllmost joined it but changed my mind at the last minute thinking that it's not something I could (or would want to) share with you guys. So was gonna join, just for fun, then talked myself out of it. As it turns out, am glad I did.

Like I said, it pre-launched Friday, full launch on Saturday. By Sunday people were wondering why it was going so slow. By Monday, questions really started to fly. Today, I see that most are disappointed.

Well with this kind of cycler, unless you're a big recruiter or can be the first one in, you might not make much (if any) money at all. It's a first come, first serve, (money in, money out) and if there's no NEW money coming in, there's nothing to share and it will die.

What surprised me was the Admin talking about opening yet ANOTHER program already! What?!? This one has barely gotten off the launch pad and you're wanting people to join yet another??? Wow! Can you say "greedy"?

Maybe it's just that time of year for Admins to lure people into their program using hyped promotions that don't produce, so that they (the admins) can have a nice Christmas. I know that's mean to say but that's how I see it.

Bottom line, I'm staying away from the "fast" cycler programs. As fast as you can win, you can lose. And I'm not keen on losing these days. I've got waaay too many kitty mouths to feed around here, and cat food is not cheap. OK

Anybody Remember This Post?

Monday mornin feels so bad
Everybody seems to naaaaag me
Comin' Tuesday I'll feel better
Even my old man looks good ...

hahahahaha (sry js, I couldn't resist)
(see the song below to understand my 'lyrics')

Those of you who have been around me for a few years might remember the above. It was actually posted in my Nov. 10, 2008 blog post. When I was looking back for my anniversary dates the other day, this one jumped out at me big time! Started laughing my ass off and decided it was just too frickin funny not to post again. Thanks as always to that wacky js for keeping us entertained over the years, har!


Let me play catch-up for a few minutes before I start rambling again.

- Ad2Million ... got paid a nice healthy chunk of moola late Sunday night. Thanks always to Carrie and Members.

- Funds-o-Matic continues to rock. Requested my weekly payout today.

- GrapeVineFunds is still brewing their alcoholic beverages and have paid me a little of my share today.

- CherryShares ... although I am not promoting it to you, did pay me today also.

- GrandBankClub's Easy 40 Plan ... told ya Gord was up to something good. Read his latest and greatest blog update today and hopefully this will get folks a little more excited about promoting this wonderful game we're in. Hey Gord? Already got my first referral lined up for Thursday, LOL

- Team Ca$h Cow and the F5M program ... I don't talk about Pete and Team Ca$h Cow nearly enough. Maybe because the program we're in takes awhile to see some return. So other than all the cool things that Pete is adding to the site on a regular basis, there's no money talk to be made. Not yet anyway :) I did notice that I have a new paid referral in F5M so I'm getting close to a payout there. I did upgrade to Silver not long ago which should help also. We do have a Team Conference Room in TCC and the next "get together" will be tomorrow at 9:00 PM EST which is 7 PM my time ... dinner. argh. Like I said, I'll try.
Thanks Pete for all you do!!!


Decided to save my rambling for tomorrow.
Am sure you guys are sick of me by now plus I have to start my
Gołąbki [ɡɔˈwɔmpki] soon.
Have a good night (wave)

Does It Really Happen In Three's?

Was reading a newsletter last night about The Vault being gone and WBwso first closing to new members and now they're not paying? (or maybe they are. see comments below) Well am not in those two (thank goodness) but I am in Cherry Shares and I don't care for their news either.
They're changing their 'plans' come the first of the year which includes (but not limited to) No More referral commissions unless you have 5K running in their program. What?
If you recall, this is the one I joined due to losing an arm wrestling match. So I'm gonna play it out until the end and will be happy when my invested dollars turns to profit. Have about 2/3 of my seed money back so far. Wish me luck :)
PS, I don't have any 'active' referrals in CS. Whew! Takes the edge off knowing it's just me I need to worry about.


So now that those 3 are out of the way, leaves more room for the ones that are actually working and paying for all my Cat Food, ha! (remind me to tell you about "Little No Ears" later)

Just received a really nice RC in Ad2Million. Thanks "G". And as I mentioned in previous posts and in the forums, folks are taking this one seriously. Just from my own referral list, I've seen some pretty healthy deposits made here, early on and present. So am hoping that Carrie (admin) does have the right idea as membership grows at a good pace and everyone's earning the "set" 2% daily. Sure is working for me.


Another fine tuned machine out there is Gord and his GBC's Easy 40 Plan. He's got some new ideas that have been clanking around in his head for awhile now and will share with you soon. In the meantime, everything is on schedule and working/paying as it should. Remember, even when the "main" program goes live to the world, you can still join through GBC and it will still cost $40 per position as it always has.


I planned on being more talkative today but have been sick since Friday. So if you don't see me again, this is why.

Happy Anniversary Blondie!

Today is my 3 Year Blog Anniversary!

Can you believe it?
Was thinking about it last night and decided to go back 2 years and read up on how I was doing in 2008. Loved reading the comments I received from folks who are still my friends today. Cool huh! Have a peek here if you're interested at all. I sure sounded happy, didn't I?

So much has changed over the past 2 years also. Look at all the stuff I was involved in back then and everything was doing pretty good too. Now you can't seem to trust anything unless you know the Admin personally and can vouch for him or her. Even then, Admin's can be sneaky and slip off into the night when no one is looking.

Then there's your friends you have to think about. People who you've grown to love over the years and suddenly they're not here anymore leaving you wondering why.

OK not trying to bum you guys out, was just thinking out loud, that's all. So wish me a Happy Anniversary and that should cheer me up today. Okie dokie. Thanks :))

This is also my 1015 blog post. Yikes!!


Hey you remember what I said about Budgetiva on Monday? No? Scroll down and take a peek. Glad I didn't fall for that one and I hope you didn't either. Site appears to be gone. I guess they paid out referral comm's along the way but did anyone actually get their 144%? I don't think so. Flippin scammers!

And did I hear The Vault is gone too? Or maybe just reorganizing. Hmmm


Just requested some payouts from Funds-o-Matic, GrapeVineFunds and CherryShares. They're all doing good to date and I hope they stay that way.

Will make a w/d request from Ad2Million tomorrow since you can only do that once every 7 days. Speaking of which, I know you guys love to re-purchase (compound) and watch your earnings get bigger faster, but don't forget to take some out for yourself once in a while too, OK? It's always more fun playing with profit. Agreed?


My heater (furnace) was blasting me with hot air this morning. It gets really cold here at night but today we're suppose to hit a record high of 82 degrees. Then get some SNOW this coming Monday. Well I got my Hoodie so I'm ready for it this time, LOL


Good News (as always) from Grand Bank Club's Easy 40 Plan:
Congratulations to members..koiman and bksmithers for completing the 40 Board and receiving payment.
I don't personally know bksmithers, but I do know koiman. That's my friend Bill who just had a birthday on the 10th. Congrats to you both!!


I decided it was time to go "Grazer" in Team Ca$h Cow. I was doing sorta good keeping up as a Stampeder in Sept until that last week which threw me out of the running for the extra 'bonus' bucks. Anyway, I paid my dues into the Feed Bag and am thankful for those of you who do have the time and fast connections to do the stampeding. (bow)


In closing, just wish js were here to celebrate with us. Am sure he'd have some wacky comment for his grasshopper today, har! Miss you John.

The Big 50 Day

Seems my Tidbit from yesterday was wrong (as Greg pointed out in his comment). Well, either that or they meant "October" only? Either way, who cares? Not a big deal.


Boy am I glad I didn't try to play in that new program launch last night. I never mentioned it here and never did sign up for it either. When I saw 5,000 members in pre-launch waiting to run each other over when the gates opened ... no thanks, I'll stay out. And from what I've read today ... looks like I made the right decision.


Hey, my first spots bought in Ad2Million have cycled 50 times now! YaY! Of course I'm in profit already because I have quite a few positions plus a nice handful of referrals. Thanks you guys!!
It IS going well, isn't it?


Speaking of going well, just read that we're over 50 spots in GBC's Easy 40 Plan too. And 2 more members will be paid shortly. Thanks Gord for keeping us all up to date on the inside workings. Much appreciated!


Got paid last night from
- Funds-o-Matic (doing great and in profit) plus
- Cherry Shares (still working on gettin that seed money out :)
Gonna save GrapeVineFunds payment for later in the week. There's just not enough in there to pull out yet.


OK, here's something of interest along with a story.

Getting ready for winter and snow and snow shoveling, I bought myself a Hoodie the other day. I tried it on in the store, and tried it on again at home before washing it to make sure it was the right size and all.
A couple of mornings ago, I woke up with bite marks all over my face. Probably 4-5 at least and one of them was on my forehead right at the hairline and it itched like crazy!
So am thinkin a spider, fly or mosquito got me during the night. Unless one of the cats brought a flea in the house. Hmmm
Then today I get this article and have to wonder if this is what happened to me. (Thanks to Jim for sending the email.) The Hoodie and all my bed clothes have now been washed and dried!

A bit of information that you might like to know about. We have friends here in our community and one of their sons is an entomologist (insect expert), and has been telling them that there is an epidemic of bed bugs now occuring in America.
Recently I have heard on the news that several stores in NYC have had to close due to bed bug problems, as well as a complete mall in New Jersey.

He says that since much of our clothing, sheets, towels, etc. now comes from companies outside of America, (sad but true), even the most expensive stores sell foreign clothing from other countries.
The bed bugs are coming in on the clothing as these countries do not consider them a problem.
He recommends that if you buy any new clothing, even underware and socks, sheets, towels, etc. that you bring them into the house and put them in your clothes dryer for at least 20 minutes. The heat will kill them and their eggs.

It does not matter what the price range is of the clothing, or if the outfit comes from the most expensive store known in the U.S. They still get shipments from these countries and the bugs can come in a box of scarves or anything else for that matter. That is the reason why so many stores, many of them clothing stores have had to shut down in NYC and other places. All you need is to bring one item into the house that has bugs or eggs and you will go to hell and back trying to get rid of them. He travels all over the country as an advisor to many of these stores, as prevention and after they have the problem.

An Interesting Tidbit

October 2010 - way cool!

This October is very special. It has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays all in 1 month. This happens once in 823 years. These are known as money bags. Pass this along to 8 good people and money will appear in 4 days based on the Chinese fengshui. Those who stop it will experience none.

But they don't say where the money will appear. Or how it will appear. Will it appear in the bank, under the mattress, in my sock, or merely in my thoughts? And if 32 people read this post, does that mean money will appear somewhere today?!? But I don't know where to look ... when it appears that is. Oh well.

Holidays all around and cell phones for seniors

Happy Holidays to my friends in the U.S. and Canada. Today is Columbus Day here and Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Now I would guess everyone in Canada filled their bellies full of Turkey yesterday so plenty of leftovers today then? Yum!

I survived yesterday, the cats and dogs were all good. Surprised the heck out of me but I'm happy to report there were no fatalities during those very long 10 hours. LOL


Been reading about Budgetiva lately. Something about it doesn't sit right with me. The site is full of monitor banners and the admin even announced that there's 100 monitors enrolled in the program! That's insane. Even the thread in a forum I'm reading is full of monitor posts. A-oh, not a good sign since a lot of monitors don't play with their own money and it'll drain the system.
They are also trying to compare it to the old Megalido (to get you excited I suppose), which I never did play in either. Well, being 144% after 12 days ... what are the chances it'll survive after the first 12 days? You and I both know how folks love to hit-n-run these things. Right?


Ad2million is doing just great. Over 800 members now and my first spend on launch day shows
48 times cycled, $9.60 in earnings. So there ya have it. Just the facts ma'am .. just the facts.


Pete tested out our new Team Conference Room in TeamCa$hCow last night and I feel bad that I missed it. The timing just wasn't right for me, especially after that long day with the needy doggies. Maybe I can catch the next one. He said it went good though so am looking forward to joining in when I can.


Got paid a nice RC from Funds-o-Matic last night so I'm gonna turn around and put it back in today. It'll help everyone, including myself in the long run.


Can you tell Summer is over?
I can since I'm actually making money again and that should make me happy, right? I just miss sharing the news with my friend when we used to compare our stats and referrals and tease about who was doing better than the other. I remember John asking me once, "how did you get so many referrals?" My response was "I nag them, lol", meaning if something is working for me and paying out, I keep posting about it to keep everyone updated on how it's doing. He, on the other hand, would post once and let it ride. So yes, I used to nudge him once in awhile to give some updates. People like to know that it's still at the top of your list. Am I right?

Can't believe it's been two weeks since the news. Seems like an eternity (and also yesterday) since we last talked (sigh).


BEWARE: While surfing just now I saw Santa Claus go by holding up $20 bills. Yikes! Is it that time of year already? Do you realize how many Xmas programs will open between now and December? Do you realize how many of them will disappear before YOU get paid?
This is the perfect time of year for greedy dishonest Admins to make their Xmas money from your willingness to try their program. I must admit, I've fallen for it in the past but am not any longer. Nope, am not.


Thanks Paul for the following.


I just got my new cell phone, - and it's one I understand how to operate!!!

At Last, a Cell Phone for Seniors!

You REALLY have to be OLD to appreciate THIS joke

I know some of you are not old enough to get this, but you can pass it on to somebody who needs a laugh today!!!

Who's 70 Today?

Today is my very good friend Bill's birthday.
Bill is not 70, but close. hahaha (just kidding)

As you can see he loves his dogs and here he is with his three collies. He has a cat too which he says is camera shy, so not in the pic.

Bill lives in Michigan and is a bachelor.
So ladies, let me know if you want his facebook info and I'll hook you up, seriously.

OK, enough teasing (giggle).

Happy Birthday William!!!
Hope you have a fun day and get lots of doggie HB kisses :)


Speaking of doggies, I volunteered to watch my grand doggies today while the boys are out golfing. What was I thinking??? I forgot I have a 3rd cat here these days, but things are going smooth so far ... no fights or chasing. Wish me luck and I'll be back in a bit.

John Lennon's 70th Birthday

Not much else to report on since everything is doing well. So I think I need to get away from here and do a little cleaning before it gets too late.
Have a good Saturday if I don't see you again.


Note: Ad2million is over 800 members today. YaY!
Just requested a payment and received it in about 10 minutes!
You Rock Carrie! Keep up the good work :)
Thanks to all the members too! This was my first payment in the triple digits! (don't tell my cats or they'll be making their new "treat" list for my next trip to PetSmart, ha!


Today is John Lennon's 70th Birthday.
Makes me feel old to remember him so well.
Happy Birthday John :)

Numbers, Email, Birthdays and Halloween

- This was not planned but today being 10/08 is also my 1008 blog post. Go figure. This will never happen again in the future after this month, will it? It's still weird no matter how you look at it.

- Why do some people have to make life so difficult for you? I've been trying hard to help someone and they're not cooperating like I thought they would. All I ask is to communicate through regular old email. That's all. Just a plain old fashioned email. And all I get is facebook replies. Well you know what? I don't like facebook and I've told them that at the end of every flippin note I send back along with my email address. SEND EMAIL! Why is that so hard for someone to do? Why?

- All our program stuff is doing great so I'll touch base with you tomorrow on that.

- My granddaughter is 3 months old today. Happy Birthday Olivia!! Now she asks me "What do you think I should be for Halloween gramma? huh huh ... huh?"

Was happy to hear about Roy Halladay last night:
"Halladay threw the second no-hitter in postseason history, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NL division series on Wednesday."

Roy was one of the local boys here and attended the same High School as my Son. A few years apart though so I never got to see him play High School Baseball.

Congrats Roy!! We're all proud of you :)

Which reminds me, my Son pitched a no-hitter when he was 10. Pretty cool to see his name in the local newspaper a few days later. I think I have several copies of that one, lol


Today is Ad2Million's 6 week anniversary and we're now over 750 members! The positions I bought on opening day have cycled 44 times now earning back $8.80 of each $10 spend. I'm happy to see this one doing so well and I think Carrie (the Admin) has the right idea to run it at 2% daily rather than how a 'cycler' would normally play out. Works for me!


Good News at GrandBankClub's Easy40Plan:
Congratulations to member...Phoenix14 for winning a 40 Board Position on the latest PIF Pool Draw
Congrats Susan! and Thanks Gord for reminding us to read the News :)


Coming up on my 3 year anniversary here in a week or so. Yep, I've been "blogging" for almost 3 years now. But with the recent passing of my best friend and mentor John, I seriously thought about quitting. Giving up. Who needs it. I can live without it. blah blah blah. Then I read an email today that made me cry (again) when she said:
Well, Blondie js has left us so that he may R.I.P & has left a part of him with us and that is through you Blondie he lives on in the cyber world with your blogging, which he taught you well. Its strange not knowing the person but feels like you did that it leaves such an impact on you."
So I've dedicated my blog to "js", and I guess I'll be back tomorrow.
Thanks to Melanie for making me think.

Anybody Want a Cat?

A few minutes ago I was busy again. Holding up the coffee table with one hand, a flashlight on the floor pointing under the table, and with the other hand grabbing a little field mouse that the Freak brought in. You know, he's a cute cat but he's makin me nuts. He brings in anything and everything that he can catch and carry. You should have seen the size of the bird me brought me last week. This thing was about as big as him and I'm surprised he could even pick it up! Of course he left it laying in the hallway for me to admire. What a nice thing to see when I walked out of my office. Anybody want a Cat?


As mentioned yesterday, I did get paid from Funds-o-Matic during the evening hours. Those who are members know that Randy is doing a great job with this program. It just keeps going and going, like you-know-who :)


I gotta talk about Ad2Million for a minute because honestly, I'm shocked at how well it's doing and how it's attracting new members consistently. Who-da-thunk-it eh? LOL
Having launched just 6 weeks ago (tomorrow) already we have over 700 members. Only the Admin knows for sure how many are free and how many are "active" ... but still. That's a lot of members in such a short time (especially with no pre-launch notice). And some people like to join and watch before they buy in. So maybe that's what the freebies are doing now. Anyway, I'm happy as heck with it and seeing lots of happy (and Paid) posts in the forums as well :))

PS, I made a $50 RC today from A2M. Don't know who to thank yet. Am waiting for Carrie to update the referral listing. Wow huh?


Here's something of interest: (Thanks Jess)

Proposed 28th Amendment

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn't pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that was just all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Have each person contact a minimum of Twenty people on their Address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

You are one of my 20.
If you don't have twenty, pass it on to whatever number you can. (or send them here to my blog, I don't mind)


You ever feel like somebody's watching you?
I do, and I kinda like it.

One of those days

Today is going really slow for me. I keep checking the clock but it doesn't seem to be moving much. So I looked at another clock and I get the same answer. Must just be me. Or maybe time is standing still. Wonder what it's waiting for?

Gord embarrassed me last night when he told me he wrote something about me in his GrandBankClub blog page. Well I do enjoy being here (most of the time), but I also think am still having trouble getting back into the swing of things. So maybe these guys are just trying to help me get motivated again. I don't really know because there's still so much to think about.

While I was at GBC this morning, I caught this:
"New GBC Blog article posted and congratulations to member: poetry for getting paid from the 40 Board"
So there ya have it. Things are moving along nicely. Thanks Gord and Congrats Mattias.


Did you notice Ad2Million is over 700 members now?
Are you lovin it? I sure am :)


Just requested payments from Funds-o-Matic, GrapeVineFunds and CherryShares. I'll be back later.

- OK back from the store and my payments are coming in.

- Got paid from Cherry Shares which puts me over the half way mark now (with regards to getting my seed money back)

- Got paid from GrapeVineFunds to LR and STP.

- Waiting on Funds-o-Matic but Randy does his payouts in the evening, my time. So I'm not concerned one bit since I know it'll be here in the AM when I get up.


Isn't it funny how certain things from your past you never forget. I remember one time when a friend of mine was heartbroken over losing his girlfriend. Not dying, just breaking up. But I remember him being miserable for a long long time, and he said something like ... you need to get worse before you can get better.

The Stampeder Star

Much to my surprise this morning, I was awarded The Stampeder Star in Team Ca$h Cow.
What does that mean and what do I get?!?
Without breaking it down myself, I'll just share Pete's note with you all so you can see what a great Team Leader he is. (and I must add, it kinda choked me up a bit when I read it. Pete knows how hard I was working in Sept til that last week when I seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth).
So Thanks Pete and Team! Much appreciated :))

Hi Team!

I have decided to create a monthly award for recognizing team members who can not only talk the talk, but walk the walk as well! What I mean is, someone who is an active member and a real team player. This does not mean that they are just promoting and delivering hits to their splash pages as agreed, but they also contribute something as a whole to the team. Maybe it involves promoting us on their own website or blog, starting a forum topic, spreading the word about us through a social network, or just doing that little bit extra to support our program.

I am actively advertising and promoting our team on traffic exchanges, text ad exchanges and safelists, so if I come across something it stands out to me, as I look for our ads. So if you feel you are a contender, let me know about it and I'll have a look.

Now for the reward - I will pick a member at the beginning of each month for actions performed in the month previous. So this month's winner will actually be picked for things done in September. And the winner is....

Blondie - Judy M.

Judy has been with me since phase 1 of Team Cash Cow was born, through the ups and downs and all the changes made. She played an active part in brainstorming ideas as well as some other team members that have evolved TCC into what it is today. And quite honestly has always been there for the team no matter what the circumstance. So congrats to Judy! what does she win, what does she win?!?

The Stampeder Star is awarded a sweet spot in the member area for the entire month to promote any program of their choosing for all members to see. They also are exempt from promoting the required 2000 hits per month and are automatically qualified for the Cash Corral Profit Share for that month as if they had delivered those hits to their page.

This is just another way that I am trying to give back to you, the members; as I appreciate all your efforts and want you to succeed with your F5M-MC business plans. You will not find a better opportunity to grow online folks. Seriously, take some time to read that report you bought for $5 and visualize the potential if you want to work for it in the beginning, and set yourself up down the road. And NEVER QUIT. Use the tools provided. Promote both your links whereever and whenever you can on a consistent basis and you will have success.

As always I am here to give you a hand up, not a hand out...

Cheers for now,

Pete - TCC Admin/Leader


I'll have more to share tomorrow. Was busy today running up to the local hardware store to get the plumbing supplies needed to fix the leaking shower. Maybe if I'm not hearing drip drip drip all night, I can sleep?

Funny thing too, the hardware store IS owned by a guy named Tim which of course reminds me of "Tim 'the Tool Man' Taylor" every time I visit there.

Also looking forward to cashing out of three different programs. Will update more after that. OK, good night :)

Going Away For The Day

Sunday, a good day to visit.
Football, burgers, kids, dogs and of course Baby O is waiting in her special hat, lol
So no updates today.

That reminds me, today is 10-3
And this is my 1003 post.
This is also my Fathers birthday.
He would be extremely old if he were still here.
So Happy Birthday Daddy,
and I'll see the rest of you tomorrow.

Anybody Here Seen My Old Friend John?

Yeah I know I skipped a day posting :(
I think all this emotion took it's toll on my body.
Feeling better today though.

Just want to say Thank You for all the wonderful comments and emails that I've received for our friend John. Am pretty sure a day won't go by that I don't think of him, and miss him. (sigh)


Ad2Million ... you know, when I launched this one for Carrie I had no idea how well it would be accepted and played. Looking at the member stats today, we're over 650 members strong in just 5 weeks.
I have one referral who's nearing the 100 position mark, and a couple more not far behind. (not bragging, just telling you what I see.)
Carries been doing a great job in keeping up with the nightly cycling and getting those payments* out fast also. Almost makes me wish I had put more energy into the launch itself, but it's ok. People seem to like this one and are flocking in by the dozens :))
*Just cashed out $75 myself. Yep, am lovin it.

PS, if you joined under "micronuts", not to worry. His account earnings will go to his daughter. I'm keeping an eye on it for him, and her.


Another great money maker right now is Funds-o-Matic, and those who have been playing it for awhile will attest to that. I think I'm in profit there even though I lost the $100 I deposited through that stupid StrictPay. Anyway my LR and AP accounts are doing just great. Got paid an RC from Randy yesterday and will do another withdraw next Tuesday, which is my regular weekly amount. Thanks members :)


I smell crap. Did I step in something when I was outside?
Seriously, went to put the sprinkler out and maybe the skunks left me a little present.


Was curious to know what others were saying about a particular program the other day so I visited a Forum that I don't normally go to. What a cluster f*** of useless and unnecessary posts. And the folks who were answering questions didn't seem to have a clue what they were talking about either. Well, maybe because it's a paid-to-post forum that makes it so ... well, not worth my time. Oh well, I'll stick with reading the ones that I like. It'll keep my blood pressure under control, I hope :/


Gord's back from his "family business" trip. Looking forward to an update from him about all of that plus our business stuff, ya know? Am off to pay my $6 for the October PIF in The Easy 40 Plan right now. Hey, I (or you) could be the next winner. (Wait for me Gord, don't do any drawings yet :)
Oops, looks like he did one already: "
Congratulations to Septembers Cash Draw for $17 and that will be sent to the winner...universal".


Speaking of Gord, he mentioned Peter Bennett (in his newsletter) who gave a subtle warning about "The Vault" today in his blog. Strange timing because I had just written to Peter informing him of JS's passing since he was a referral of John's in Funds-o-Matic :(


Good ole Cherry Shares is still kicking out those daily interest payments and sending off the pay requests really fast. Whew. Once I get paid today, I'll have half of my spend back. (still biting my finger nails though)


Seems weird now, but this song was going through my head the first part of September when I couldn't get a hold of js. But I didn't want to say anything, or post this song because it is so permanent and I didn't want to give anyone the wrong impression. Unfortunately now it seems fitting (bigger sigh).
