BIG error

January 31, 2010

I don’t know if you check the website to view game stats, but if you do you might have noticed a huge error.  Looking at the live game stats during the Pro Bowl, I noticed they had the divisional teams labeled incorrectly.  If you look at the screen shot below, notice the players listed under the divisional titles.

That’s right.  According to the NFL, Aaron Rodgers (Quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings) is a member of AFC.  The same holds true for Donovan McNabb, Quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles.  I wonder when they will notice their error.

The Jacobite Steam Train

January 21, 2010

Here is another beautiful steam train for you.  If the train looks familiar, then I have to guess you’ve seen one of the Harry Potter movies.  This train, operating from Fort William to Mallaig in Scotland. 

As you travel along the rails, you take in the stunning scenery that Scotland has to provide, including views of the Glenfinnan Monument and Loch Shiel as it crosses over the Glenfinnan viaduct.  This 110 year old consists of 21 individual arcs, giving this concrete bridge a spectacular architectural appeal.  The bridge, just like the Jacobite steam train, has also been featured in the Harry Potter series.

Meet MagicMercury

January 16, 2010

One of the best things about the internet is that you get to meet new people from around the world. In the old days, we would have pen pals where you would write (or type) a letter and mail it off to somewhere far away, hoping for a reply within a month. Today, all you need to do is turn on your computer, connect to the internet, and surf the web.

I would like you to me the author from MagicMurcury from Sweden. He uses his blog to discuss his daily life as well as write articles of interest. One of his articles I came across reminded me of a conversation I was having today about smells.

In his article “Reminiscence of childhood,” he discusses how scent of the blooms from the Gulmohar tree. The scents would remind him of his days a kid growing up, and how he would play with his friends on those trees. I have similar responses to scents from various ships I sailed on in the past. It is an uncontrollable response, since your memories are directly linked to various scents and smells.

I’d like to thank the author for sharing his views on the world. I would encourage you to take a few minutes and visit his site. Maybe something he has written about will remind you of something in your own life.

Make Money Online: InLinks Ads

January 14, 2010

Time for another installment of “Make Money Online.” Today, I want to introduce you to InLinks.

Do you want to make “easy money?”  Do you want to site down and write only about what interests you, rather than writing reviews on various websites that you have no interest in?  You can do both at the same time with inLinks!

When I say easy money, I mean you do not have to embed specific links into your articles.  With some “link” sites, you are provided a key word or phrase that you have to sometimes force into your article since there is no grammatically correct way to blend it in with a sentence.  InLinks resolves that for you without any special effort on your end.

What InLinks does is it searches the text of all of your articles and matches them up with keywords their customers want to pay for.  So, if you are writing an article about iPods or a special program that is giving away free Sony PSPs, and inLinks has a customer who wants to link their website to the keyword “iPods,” they will automatically create a special hyperlink for you.  In exchange you will receive payment for that link for every month the customer wishes to pay for it.  When their time is over, the keyword becomes available for their next customer to purchase.  The same holds true on a topic you might have written 3 years ago. 

With reoccurring payments, and the possibility of having more than one advertiser purchasing links in the same article, you can quickly start earning some decent cash without any extra effort.  In fact, inLinks accounted for 55% of my revenue last year. 

So give it a try for a few months and see how much you can earn.  Click here and fill out their brief registration page to get started.  After that, all you will need to do is add a simply code somewhere on your site (it could even be in the sidebar).  InLinks will do the rest.

Devastation in Haiti

Have you seen this???  The pictures below are the before and after photos of the Palace in Haiti.  The 7.0 earthquake caused the top floor to collapse.  The building is a total loss.  Pray for the Haitians in this time of need.
