How fast can you type

Speed test

I haven't taken a typing test in a very long time. The last time I actually took one I was able to type about 89 WPM. This is an interesting typing test. I actually think this one is a little harder because you aren't typing sentences just words. But give it a try and see how you actually can do.

Take care of yourself

Skin care has become something that I have really started giving some serious thought to. I probably should have thought about it sooner than later. But I figure that as long as I am still above ground and breathing it isn't to late to start. You can go online to and fill in a questioner about your skin and find information on better ways to take care of your skin. You can also tune into the radio show by going to and listen via free streaming online audio radio to many health tips regarding your skin. I have bookmarked the site and subscribed to the e-mail list which you can find on the blog. I am going to make it a point to tune into the weekly radio show. One of the things I have started doing is trying to be very faithful in using moisture cream morning and night every day on especially my face and neck area. I know I am not perfect and I forget or sometimes get to lazy to do it. But I have decided if I miss a day or two I am not going to stop. I plan on trying to keep the skin I am in as young looking as possible. Remember actually you only get one skin it is our job to take care of it.

Shave and A Haircut Two Bits

Well the story of the 3:00 AM play party for the 3 year old continues to unfold. We have since in the daylight discovered that he has also cut two patches of his hair out with the scissors... again. I say again because a few months ago he got his "Mother's" disposable razor and shaved a patch in the top of his head. I really don't know what the answer is for him or his "Mother". She is at her wits end. She talked to the doctor a couple of weeks about having him tested to see if he is ADHD or something like that and they are telling her that they can't test him until he is in school and probably 1st or 2nd grade. By that time some teacher will have probably done him in. I know we are all about to do it here in the house. Just really need some answers for him that is for sure.

I am Fairly Normal???

You Are Fairly Normal

You scored 40% normal on this quiz

Like most people you are normal in some ways...

But you aren't a completely normal person. You're a little weird too!

Why You Are Normal:

You prefer a good meal to a good nap

You think glasses can make someone more attractive

You prefer ruffled potato chips

You would rather be an astronaut than a movie star

You'd rather have rats than cockroaches in your home

Why You Aren't Normal:

You rather screw someone over than be screwed over

You don't keep up with your horoscope

You find the Chicken Dance to be the more embarrassing dance

You eat the cupcake first

You prefer your family to your friends

What's Normal About You... And What's Not?

So I am not normal because I think the Chicken dance is embarrassing and I don't read my horoscope and I prefer my family to friends. I also don't like to be screwed over. That is not to say I don't get screwed over. Trust me I do I just don't have to like it.


I hate what the Florida Schools have in place for this stupid "No child left behind" My grandchildren are all in the 3rd grade and they have to pass this stupid FCAT test in order to pass the 3rd grade. We are busy trying to find ways to help them prepare for this stupid test. I think that something we just might try is using the site and see if we can't get some flash cards there to help them with their Math and Reading that they need to take the stupid test on. We have really been worried about this test coming up. But with the help of these flash cards this just might be the solution that we have been looking for. I am telling you that when you have 3 children all in 3rd grade and they are doing math the way they are teaching them these days. It is enough to drive you to drink.

Flashcard Friends is a free website you can use to create and share online flashcards. You are even able to include sounds and pictures. You can use one of their 4 ways to learn with the cards. Once you have everything ready, the system will create tests for you and will even correct your answers. This has to be the best way to learn and it is for kindergarten all the way to Medical school students although I don't think we are quite ready for that yet. This website is free, has no advertising and is safe for kids which in these day is something very important.

Flashcard Friends Combines Social Networking and Online Learning

Second generation Web 2.0 entrepreneurs create a FREE “social learning” website for students, homeschoolers and teachers

Belmont, CA. – February 21, 2008 – Flashcard Friends combines social networking—a la Facebook and MySpace—with online learning. The inspiration for Flashcard Friends came when the founders of the company, Kendall and Ryan Hogan (now ages 15 and 12) were being forced to create flashcards by their whip-cracking father. They complained that “flashcards are lame…why can’t we do them on the Internet…and why can’t they be fun like MySpace.” Their father, Mike, a web 2.0 entrepreneur, started asking questions about how it might work. Kendall and Ryan described a social network where students could create flashcards and share them with their classmates; or teachers could create flashcards and share them with their students.

With the help of their father, Ryan and Kendall defined what they wanted their website to do. Then their father recruited a top-notch team of developers and got it built. You can now see their website at Following in their father’s footsteps, Kendall and Ryan are second generation web 2.0 entrepreneurs.

Old school (printed) flashcards are a powerful and proven memorization tool. By using them, Kendall and Ryan were able to substantially improve their test scores. But online flashcards enable a lot of very powerful capabilities. For example, spelling, pronunciation of foreign words, automated testing and correction, images, all of this and more is a snap with Flashcard Friends.

Once the flashcards are in the system, you can share them with friends. The Hogan kids are now looking forward to the day when they return from summer break, only to inherit online flashcards from the class ahead of them. In addition to finding flashcards through friends, you can navigate through flashcard decks by category (e.g. math > algebra), or search by tags, keywords, and more.

Some of the website’s functionality:
• Create flashcards with text, pictures and sounds (ideal for foreign languages)
• Four different learning modes: find one that fits you, or use them all
• Auto-magically creates tests from the flashcards and then corrects them
• Uses social networking to manage sharing card decks
• Find existing flashcards by subject, school, teacher, book and more
• Speak into your computer and add the recording to the cards instantly
• Turns a spelling list into spelling flashcards with a spoken version of each word
• Includes web 2.0 technologies like user ratings, bookmarking and tagging
• …and much more

Flashcard Friends enables students to create flashcards, share them, memorize them and then test themselves. Flashcards can be used at every level, from Kindergarten to post-graduate, and for every topic, from learning colors to preparing for the legal bar exam, learning a language, or studying for the SAT.

Nancy Ferraro 5th Grade Teacher, Granite Bay, CA: “I was very excited to discover Flashcard Friends. I introduced it to my 5th grade students, and we have been using it ever since. The students like how easy the site is to navigate, but they are so jazzed to see their friends’ flashcards. My students have already exchanged flashcards on multiplication, fractions, the 13 colonies, and space. All this in one week! I will definitely use this site for all of my classroom flashcard needs.”

About Flashcard Friends
Flashcard Friends, the social learning website, is pioneering the powerful combination of social networking and online learning. The company was founded by students, for students.

He's Back.....

OK..... It is now 5:47 AM and I have been awake since 3:00 AM. Why? You ask... I am glad you asked. Well, being that I am getting a little bit older I seem to have to make a potty trip at least once a night and sometimes more than that.

Well, at 3:00 AM I got up to go potty and noticed the living room light was on downstairs. So I just went down to check to see if anybody was there. I didn't see anyone so I came back up the steps. but halfway up I thought I heard something. So I went back down. Still not seeing anything I turned around to come back up and heard something again. I looked around the living room and not seeing anything I heard the sound again. So I went to the kitchen and there HE was, laying on the kitchen floor playing with my granddaughter's MP3 player and her Nintendo DS and a pair of scissors. Well I am here to tell you that when he looked up he actually must have crapped his pants cause he did have to have a diaper changed before he could go back to bed. I tried to get the things from him and he ran to his room. I got to the door before he could shut it because I wanted the "Mother" to know what her child had been up to at 3:00 freaking AM in the morning. I told her what I had found and that I was getting Joy (my daughter) up and they could deal with it. Well come to find out he has cut the earphones all up in bits and pieces to the MP3 player. So now they have to be replaced. I am here to tell you I have never been afraid of a child in my life but I am beginning to have my fears about this one. I worry that I need to start sleeping with the bedroom door locked or face the fact that I could wake up some morning with scissors sticking out of my neck. However in that case I might not actually wake up. We joke about this child but actually I don't know what his problem is. He seems to have no fear of anyone or anything and he absolutely does not know right from wrong or just doesn't care. I really don't know which one it is. But his "Mother" is in for some really hard times with him if she doesn't get him help and all she does is scream and yell at him.

So basically this morning at 3:00 AM not only was he awake but lets see who else was awake. I will make a list so I don't miss anyone
1. Brat
2. "Mother" of Brat
3. Joy
4. Jill (Other daughter)
5. Brat's baby sister
6. Randy (my husband)
7. Oh yeah ME

Oh and by the way the front door was also unlocked which means he had been out on the front screened porch before I found him. I am telling you this child will be out on the street some night because his mother is such an idiot. We put a screen door type lock up high on her bedroom door so he can't get out but she doesn't lock it. I really don't know what the answer is.

Light at the end of the tunnel

Well I think that there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel and I don't think this time that it is the train coming down the track at us.

Randy and I need to get transportation and our own place to live and now that I mention a place to live it reminds me that we don't have any furniture to actually speak of. So guess that means we also need furniture. But we have found out that we are going to be getting some money pretty soon at least within the next month or so. When that happens we are going to get transportation first. Then start to find a place to live. I love my family don't get me wrong but for this many people to live in the same house somebody is bound to get physically hurt and ya just never know who that might be.

Wash that man right out of your hair

Ok, so I don't actually have a man in mind that I am wanting to wash out of my hair but if Randy keeps up with the attitude I just might use some naked naturals shampoo and not only wash him out of my hair but I can actually improve the condition of my hair at the same time. How is that I could kill two birds with one stone. Get rid of Randy, and have better and stronger hair at the same time. Naked Naturals shampoo and conditioner products are able to make your hair stronger and healthier without the possible harmful chemicals that are in most other products. With Naked Naturals you can increase your hair strength up to 7x from the natural shampoo and 3x from the conditioner. They have a secret ingredient in every product. I guess it is not so much a secret ingredient if they tell you what it is and they do. It is called Keravis, which is a natural plant protein that's is used exclusively in their product. I absolutely love this shampoo and conditioner and as soon as I can I am going out to get me more of it to use every day. Pretty soon I will be able to be like the girls in the circus that hang from their hair. Alright I probably won't be doing that cause that really has to give you a terrific headache.

All kidding aside I have used this shampoo twice and I really can see a difference in the condition of my hair. I absolutely love this shampoo. The shampoo I am using is the Awapuhi & Lavender for Color Treated Hair. It is fabulous to say the least!

Terrific Tuesday

OK, I am going to try to think of five things that would make this a Terrific Tuesday.
1. We got to go out today for lunch
2. We got to go to Wal-Mart
3. I didn't have to walk to the bus to get the kids today
4. The "Mother" was off during the day so she was gone with her 2 kids
5. The "Mother" is working her second job this evening so she is not home now.

Hey, that was actually pretty easy. I should do this more often.

Pearls of wisdom

Where do pearls of wisdom come from? Really smart oysters!

Oysters are something I have never ever ever tried to eat. I just can't get past the look of them. So as picky an eater I am you know I will never try them much less actually eat one of them. My great Aunt used to say that she loved the oyster stew that my Mother always made on Christmas Eve but she liked the oysters best when she could just let them slide down her throat. I always thought how did she know if she liked them if she didn't actually chew them up and eat them. But I never questioned her because she was my favorite person in the whole wide world.

My husband on the other hand loves oysters. I have always heard the thing that you should never eat oysters in the month's that have an "R" in them or is that the months without an "R" in them. So there is another reason why I don't eat them. But living in Florida Randy loves to get Gulf oysters whenever he can. In this day and age you really need to be oyster aware. You need to be informed, be cautious, be smart and be sure. Trust me I don't really think you want to get yourself sick from something like bad oysters.

Rainy day

Today has been a pretty good day as far as days in my life seem to be going lately. Today it rained off and on most of the day. So for a Saturday it was a pretty lazy day. The kids were actually pretty good today except for the 3 year old. He is back into his old habits which after a week or so we actually thought he had broken. He was caught twice today climbing from his mother's bed into his baby sister's crib. We keep telling him he is going to hurt her and he loses privileges when he gets caught doing this. His "Mother" stopped home during the day and when she found out he was doing this again. She decided to "talk" to him. So she proceeds to ask him why he did what he did and then he starts talking in a whiny voice that you can't understand one word he is saying. So her response to him was to tell him to stop talking to her like he was a baby. She told him he needed to talk to her like an adult. Yep you hear me right, she told her 3 year old to talk to her like an adult. I am telling you the girl never ceases to amaze me with what can pop out of her mouth. Clearly she doesn't load her brain before she shoots off her mouth. But in order to do that I guess she would have to have a brain to load. Tonight the 3 year old and his sister are both in bed and the other 3 kids are laying in their beds watching a movie. So hopefully there will not be any major issues for the rest of the night. One can only hope. But in this house you never know what is going to happen until you are actually mid way through something happening.

Peace and WHAT?

Well the kids were out of school for a 3 day weekend due to President's Day. But last night one of the boys started running a fever and doesn't feel good at all. His right ear is stopped up and he can't hear out of it and he just generally feels like a truck ran over him and backed up to see what it hit. So therefore they are all three home today I guess just in case one of them got sick at school and there was no way to get them home. But I was looking forward to just an adult day. The "Mother" is off today so that means she is up and gone with her two. (Thank heavens) and if the 3 grandchildren had been in school today we were going to go get something for lunch and just get out of the house. But since they are home that means we are all home today. Yipee, Whooo and all that jazz. Well guess I will be doing the hide out routine in my room today to just stay out of the way.

Good news - Bad News

I have some good news and I have some bad news. OK, now which news do I want first? Let me think. I think I want the good news first. Alright, today is Friday, which means the kids do not have any homework tonight. That is always cause for celebration. I am telling you I did not take Geometry in school for a reason and just in case I forgot that reason. The kids are in 3rd grade and they are learning Geometry now. I have no idea what a parallelogram is and really don't care. Actually I had to do spell check to be sure it was spelled right.

Now for the bad news. Monday is President's Day. That means the kids do not have school on Monday. That means they will be home from school on Monday. Are you getting the drift yet? That means they will have a 3 day weekend. They will be home for three days in a row. They are ready to kill each other after a 2 day weekend. So after 3 it just gets worse.

Learn something new

I have a good friend who is a commercial mortgage broker. His job sounds so interesting all of the time. I have thought that it is something I would really enjoy doing. I mean he makes great money and he loves what he is doing. But you often think that just because you want to do something doesn't always mean you can actually do the job. Well now you can actually purchase a program that will teach you how to achieve that dream. Selling commercial property and making great money at it. I just think I might look into this further. I mean come on I am looking for a job and this is the time for me to check out all of my options.

Happy Valentines Day

Well, Happy Valentines Day to everyone out there. This is a year that I know right now I will not be getting any presents from Randy. We don't have the extra money but I guess It is good just to have each other and to have pretty good health. I sat last night and helped the kids get their valentines ready to take to school this morning. They have home made cards for us. I know they took some kind of box and cut it apart and wrote on the blank side. So guess I have to really act like I just received the Mona Lisa or something of that standard.

Slip sliding away

I am really thinking a lot about when Randy and I get a place of our own. I know that I want some safety features in the bathroom. I guess when you get a little older you just don't feel as sure footed in the shower as you did when you were younger. So I have been checking out some Suction Grab Bar FAQ. I am really learning that they are not just for the elderly. Because although I do consider myself older I do not think of myself as elderly. Plus I really in favor of a good bathmat in the tub. I can't think of anything worse than if you fell in the shower and had to call 911 and there you are in all of your glory when the guys get there. Nope that is not for me. I am a supporter of preventive measures.

Rain Rain go away

Well I am thankful that since it has started raining that it waited until we got home from the bus stop. There is nothing worse (that I can think of right now) than walking home from a bus stop with 3 kids than doing it in pouring down rain. I think this bus stop is about 27 miles from the house and it is up hill both ways. I know you are saying that is not possible and it probably isn't but it sure seems like it is. But all that aside I guess we could get some bad weather this evening. We have tornado warnings for us all evening tonight. I just pray that all we manage to get is some rain. I do not want any bad weather with 5 children in the house.

A face only a mother could love

While walking home the other day from the bus stop with the grandchildren, I saw a lady in her driveway with a Chinese Shar Pei. The dog was black and it made me remember when we had a dog just like that. That was before the internet was as popular as it is now and I had a hard time finding out about the breed of dogs. Pet Information back then was just much harder to find. We had a dog that had many health problems when we got him. But the breeder wasn't going to do anything to help him. So being the animal lovers we are we agreed to keep the dog. After many hundreds of dollars spent at the vet we had a very loving dog. But seeing that dog the other day brought back memories so I stopped to talk with her for a bit. There is just something about dogs that seems to bring people together to share your pet stories. It seems like someone always has the best dog and wants to tell you about that animal. I really wonder what pets would say to us if they were able to talk. I believe that that dog we had would have told us how happy he was to be living with us than with the breeder we got him from.

Oh Lord Bless this food

Every night at dinner the kids basically fight over who is going to pray. I don't think it is because they are trying to be so "Spiritual" it just means they get to be heard by everybody including God himself.

Well last night Nate won the coin toss as it were to pray. So he proceeded to thank God for the food and this was heartfelt because I made homemade Chicken and dumplings and this is a meal he likes. After that he blessed the people that cooked the food. That keeps him on good terms with the cook. Then he prayed that God would give us some large black trash bags. He prayed this because part of his duties are trash and he knew we are out of the good bags and are down to the cheep ones. He does not want a bag breaking on him cause he might get something Yuckie on himself. He is our OCD boy. So I keep looking today for a large box of black trash bags to drop out of the sky.

Can you hear me now

As some of you already know Jill is planning to move sometime this summer to Europe to live there with some of her friends. She already knows that she is going to need a cell phone when she gets there. So she has already started checking out Cheap Mobile Phones. Even though she will be looking for Cheap phones she will want good service and good coverage. I mean come on it doesn't matter how cute your telephone is if you have no service what good does it do you?

I really hate to have her that far away from us. I mean come on right now she is in the bedroom right next to me. OK, maybe that is a little to close for us to be to each other but we do get along for the most part. But no matter how far away she does move from home she is going to need a good Free mobile phone. I am a typical mother and if I didn't hear from her on a regular basis I would just worry about her.

What do we do.

We are really at a loss here as to how to deal with the 3 year old in the house. No matter what you do to discipline him when he does something wrong nothing seems to work. Yesterday he was caught in his baby sister's crib jumping up and down while she was laying there. This morning he was caught doing exactly the same thing. We are worried in the first place that he will accidentally jump on her and seriously hurt her or even worse kill her. But no matter how you discipline him he will go back and do the same thing over and over again. Spanking his does nothing at all. Neither does standing in a corner. So right now he is sitting on a chair. But, that doesn't seem to actually bother him either. I asked him why he was on the chair and he told me because he was jumping in his sister's crib. But then he said "you didn't see me". I have never in my live dealt with a child like this. He has no regard for right and wrong.

I Have a Headache

Boy I tell you lately I have been having a lot of headaches and I have finally come to the decision that it is time to have my eyes checked and get new glasses. OK, I admit it is way way past time to get new glasses. It is just something I hate to do. The last time I got glasses it cost me over $400.00 for exam, frames and lenses. So to say the least I do not have that kind of money right now. So I think I will check out Zenni Optical: Sell Rx Glasses $8 with case!. I mean what a deal. I wear progressive lenses and they actually have them starting at $37.00. That was the biggie cost with the glasses I am wearing. I picked out a frame that was only $25.00 because it was a sample frame so the rest was for lenses. I really think this is worth looking into.

The "Mother"

Oh, good grief Charlie Brown. The "Mother" works an 8 - 5 job but has the ability to stop by the house, and you guessed it she just stopped by the house. So now she is down there going at it with the 3 year old. He keeps climbing into the crib with his sister and he is going to hurt her so she keeps saying you can't climb into the crib just over and over again. But if you were to ask him right now what she said to him he would have no earthly idea. The two of them just about drive me right up a wall.

Fat to Muscle

The other day I was at the grocery store and they have those scales in the front where everybody and their brother can see your weight. I mean it has everything in huge numbers the only thing it doesn't do is shout out your weight. But, all aside I haven't gained very much weight since we have been back in the states. But I could use some help with Weight & Strength Training Revolution. My actual weight is not too bad what I would do is to lose the rest of my fat and turn it into muscle. I would love to tone back up. I know at my age things are supposed to drop. But I would love to catch some of me before everything hits the floor with a huge bounce and come back up to smack me between the eyes.

Bad Jobs

I know in my life I have had some bad jobs. But I guess this little cartoon says it best. There really are worse jobs than what I have had in the past. I mean come on now think about it if you were a roll of toilet paper now that is just about the worst job in the world. If you can think of a worst one let me know.

Start up

I have been thinking a lot lately about starting my own business. Something that I could even possibly do from home. But my first question and trust me I have more than one question but the first would be where do you begin and how do you get any kind of Network Marketing Leads. I found this site where you can go and they have a great book for you telling you everything you need to know and you are able to preview a chapter of the book and check out the table of contents online before you actually order the book. This just may be the place where I need to begin

Tornados in the South

Yesterday here in Florida it was about 86 degrees and let me tell you it really felt hot. But I just saw on the news earlier this morning that in someplace in Texas it was 96. This weather is really crazy. Then they are saying that there were probable over 50 tornado's that hit last night with about 5o people dead. I can remember Randy and our family went to the Palm Sunday Tornado's in Indiana in 1973 I think it was. That was a very scary night. The next morning we discovered that tornado's had touched down all around us and when I say all around us I mean like a block to each side of us. My heart really goes out to all of the families affected by these storms.

Car Shopping

Like I said before Joy is looking for another car so she is in the process of getting Car Prices for things she is interested in. What she needs is just like anybody else she needs the best deal possible for the amount of money she will be able to pay. I mean come on she would love to have a 2007 mini van for about $100.00. Wouldn't we all? But she will be checking out things like to see what is available for her budget.

Stupid "Mother"

The "Mother" and again I use those words very loosely is an idiot. The three year old has a cold and got a shot yesterday at the doctor. One that I guess a three year old needs. The 19 month old got 4 shots because she is 8 shots behind. she hasn't had any of her shots since she was 3 months old. The "Mother" yesterday at her grandmother's let both kids play outside in the water hose. I told you she was an idiot. Well today the 3 year old has a much worse cough and cold and the baby is running a higher fever I am sure from both the shots and playing in the water. But if you try to tell her things she just gets ticked off cause she thinks she is "Mother" of the year. Then when she gets ready to go to work she gives the baby a whole banana in the crib and the 3 year old some kind of fruit roll up. She isn't even smart enough to know you cannot leave a small baby like that with a banana in her crib and nobody to watch her. She could choke to death. But again if I try to tell her this she will just get ticked off.

That;s a Quote

Joy my daughter is getting ready to start looking for car insurance quotes in the nest month or so. She has insurance right now on her car. But, she is in the process of looking for another car that they have more room in. Right now she has a very small car and when Randy, Jill and I go with her anywhere, when we get out of the car it makes you think of the clown car at the circus. We usually make her park in an obscure location so we do not draw a large crowd and have someone start selling tickets to the circus by mistake. She would like to get a mini van or something of similar size but will just have to see what she can find herself when the right time comes along. That just may be when one of us gets stuck in the car and can't get out. I don't know if that would bring her more money when she sells her old car or less money.

But, all that aside when she looks for her new insurance she wants something that will cost her less. So, for her sake I hope she can find something like Cost-U-Less which has been in the insurance business since 1980. However, they are located only in California so she will have to search for something similar here in Florida.

Part Two

Well the "Mother" got home from taking the two children to the doctor. The 19 month old was only 8 shots behind schedule. So bless her heart and her two chubby thighs she got 2 shots in each thigh. So now she is a very crabby, cranky, grouchy baby bitch. She was grouchy before because she is cutting a molar tooth but now she is very cranky. So ya got the picture she is a big crab. Jill went with the "Mother" to the doctor and said they were trying to tell the Doctor that the 3 year old has some problems but that is hard to do when the doctor only spends 5 minutes in the room to see 2 children. I am telling you Doctors suck big time. Talk about being over paid and over priced. They are the biggest rip offs in the world. So guess the doctor said that there is nothing they can do if he is ADD or something like that until he gets into school. So by that time he will be terrible. But how do you fight city hall as the saying goes?

Calgon Take Me Away!!!

Oh Good Grief Charlie Brown, it is only Tuesday of this week and I am ready for a nervous breakdown. I don't know what it is lately but I am about to blow. Randy and I got away and spent a weekend with some friends the weekend before last and I don't know if that is the reason but lately the 5 children in this house are about to drive me right over the edge. I know part of it is being our age and living in a house with as many people in this house. I mean living with your two daughters and 3 grandchildren, and we won't even mention the other "Mother" and her 2 children thrown into the mix. That "Mother" and Jill have gone this morning to take her 2 children to the doctor. It is about time the baby is now 19 months old and has not been to see a doctor since she was 3 months old. So do ya think it is time she went to get some shots or something???? This "Mother" and I use the word "Mother" very loosely is the poorest excuse for a "Mother" I have ever seen in my entire life and trust me I have seen a lot in my years.

Nose Job

This is a new way of advertising and I think it is kind of cool. This way if you are interested in getting a nose job and then if they would be so kind to put different noses on the cups you could try them out to see which nose you preferred on your face. My luck I would get a cup with a huge snozzola and then I would come out worse than I look now.

Exercise your right

It is election time for the biggie job in the USA to elect our New President. I really try to be an educated voter. I can remember my Mother sitting at the table day after day with the newspaper checking out all of the candidates. Well now I can actually do it much faster on the internet. I can check out ElectionQlips to see what is going on in the upcoming elections before the actual biggie election. This site has a great multimedia commenting functionality and it is a one of a kind so it is really worth you spending your time on.

QlipMedia ( has just launched the public beta version of ElectionQlips (, a new destination to discuss all that is Election 2008. Readers can share their comments with the community and leave comments on Presidential Election themed video posts using their recorded voice, free-hand drawing, and images to let everyone know what they think and how they feel about every point in the posted debates, ads, punditry and stump speeches.

As the nation’s attention increasingly focuses on the outcomes of the ongoing primary elections and the general election to follow this November, viewers of ElectionQlips can stayed tuned to all the exciting action, including voice and video comments of their fellow citizens. And anyone can bring their wit and wisdom to bear on the debate of the moment, commenting to their heart’s content with their own voice and images.

The blogosphere has always been about giving a voice to common ‘netizens’, while democratizing the dissemination of the news and opinion. But heretofore that voice has been confined to the two dimensional world of the written word. The broad appeal of video has added a third dimension, a layer of contextual relevancy just not possible with the written word alone. Blog commenting has been similarly constrained by the same technical barriers. ElectionQlips brings multimedia blogging full circle, giving blog commenters the ability to post live, multimedia comments right on the videos they’re viewing in their own voice, using their own doodles and images.

• 100+ million blogs in existence
• 1.5 million blog posts per day

ElectionQlips users can take their election debate with them by sharing the link and embedding the player anywhere. On the video timeline, it’s easy to bring out all the facts with every detail of the debate through point-by-point analysis. The density of comments at every point let’s one see what’s hot and what’s not in every debate.

The goal of ElectionQlips is to make it possible for everyone to participate in any debate, discussion and controversy using their own voice. Commenting on blog posts is a common enough, ElectionQlips gives an edge over other contemporary election blogs, especially with respect to sharing your comments and opinions.
