In order to avoid being labeled a stupid criminal on blogs and YouTube, bank robbers are warned not to use this mechanical tiger for a getaway vehicle.

"All Marketers are Liars" - Seth Godin speaks at Google

I noticed this video on a Lens of the Day at Squidoo today. It is the longest video at YouTube that I've watched almost all of. Seth Godin is talking about marketing to Google employees. There are some interesting points that people using AdSense and Adwords may find useful.

Looking for Bigfoot

I'm looking forward to being the next millionairess. That is, after I find Bigfoot and "provide an unaltered photograph/video, verified and substantiated by a panel of scientific experts [including a zoologist and biologist], the evidence required to prove a Sasquatch/Bigfoot/Yeti exists." If someone does they'll be paid the bigbucks. "Bushnell Outdoor Products and Field & Stream magazine want you to find Sasquatch this year and they are providing a good reason to search — one million reasons to be exact — with the “$1,000,000 Sasquatch Photo Challenge” that runs from June 3 through December 15, 2008."A little more information on the $1,000,000.00 bounty on Bigfoot available here: little more insight into Bigfoot can be found at
My brush with Bigfoot....Years ago I was wandering around in the wilds of Alaska and found one huge footprint made by a really big foot. It didn't look like it had been made…

Raven in Norse Mythology

From: Our Bird Friends By Margaret Coulson Walker in a book called Prairie Gold I found on Google Books.

In Norse mythology Odin the greatest of all the gods the raven's God had for his chief advisers two ravens Hugin and Munin (Mind and Memory) who were sent out by him each morning on newsgathering journeys and who returned to him at nightfall to perch on his shoulders and whisper into his ears intelligence of the day. When news of unusual importance was desired, Odin himself in raven guise vent forth to seek it, and when the Norse armies went into battle they followed the raven standard, a banner under which William the Conqueror fought. When bellied by the breezes it betokened success but when it hung limp only defeat was expected.

Norse navigators took with them a pair of ravens to be liberated and followed as guides; if the bird returned it was known that land did not lie in that direction; if they did not, they were followed. The discoveries of both Iceland and Greenland are a…

Big Stars Lend Support to Save Wild Horses

KLAS out of Las Vegas reported the other day about the latest idea from the powers that be that it is time to round up the herd of mustangs that range in the Comstock. Country Music songstress Lacy J. Dalton (long time wild horse advocate and cofounder of the Let ’em Run Foundation) is being joined by music stars such as Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg to try to send a message to Nevada's governor to stop that from happening. Seeing wild horses in the foothills outside Reno, Nevada on a regular basis, I don't see a problem. The horses I drive by regularly seem healthy enough. In fact, it occured to me the other day that they are more sound than Big Brown.

Dealing With Collection Calls

Tips from a debt collector for maintaining your sanity despite debt collection calls to a wrong number.

First of all, if you are dealing with incessant wrong number calls I feel for you.

I really do.

Tell the debt collection company calling you that they have the wrong number.

I'd suggest to anyone that is dealing with incessant wrong number calls to keep in mind that it is debtors that plague other people with unwanted phone calls, and not debt collection agencies.

Did you read that right?


Debtors plague other people with unwanted phone calls, and not debt collection agencies.

People that don't pay their bills purposefully pawn the problem off on other people. Debtors give friends and relatives numbers to creditors. Junior debtors give away contact information for their father with the same name – or vice versa. Debtors check phone books and report the numbers and addresses of people with the same name. Debtors get rid of old phone numbers every other month and new subscribers g…
