This speaks for itself and I liked it, hope you do too.
If you haven’t noticed, which I know a lot of people haven’t, facebook has the typical “inbox” for private messages and then one next to it called “other.” They decided some time ago that if they don’t think you know the person (basically if you don’t have friends in common with them) that your message will just go in the “other” box because it’s probably SPAM and unwanted. You can get around this if you pay $1.00 (sometimes a few cents more) and it will go into the “inbox.”
If it’s really spam, why allow people to pay and send it? If it isn’t for sure spam, why separate it? I’m hoping that if we can all agree to not pay, and to check our “other” box, and to get the word out, I’m hoping that they’ll see it as a failure and stop the nonsense.
Earlier today, I saw something going around Facebook called something like “Dear Mom on the iPhone.” If you haven’t seen it, I’m sure you’ve at least seen or read something similar at some point. It goes something like this:
“Dear Mom on the iPhone…Your little girl is spinning round and round, making her dress twirl. She is such a little beauty queen already, the sun shining behind her long hair. She keeps glancing your way to see if you are watching her.
Your little boy keeps shouting, ‘Mom, MOM watch this!’ I see you acknowledge him, barely glancing his way.
He sees that too. His shoulders slump, but only for a moment, as he finds the next cool thing to do.”
OK I get it, I really do. We live in an age that is so technology obsessed, that we are at risk of missing out on real…

Sometimes as a parent I worry about what the kids want to watch, is it going to have sex? swearing? who knows what else? Well the BEST website I have ever seen for checking out how appropriate a movie is would be kids-in-mind.com. They get very detailed explaining everything that you might find wrong in a show.
They break it down into a few categories:
I hope you find the website helpful, I sure have!
Facebook is always changing and updating, I’m not one to complain.. I actually kind of like it.
But if you want to know how to make it stop making a little noise whenever you get notifications here you go:
Very top-right click the “gear” looking thing, then “Account Settings” then “Notifications” under how you get notifications click view (to the right) and there you go.
Un-check the box shown below and save it.
Check out http://performwellnow.com, It is my cousin’s website and it’s for sure worth a look. She’s an amazing gal and I’m proud to call her family. She has a countdown on there to her running the Boston Marathon, wow!
Also a chance to donate to a very good cause.
I recently heard about something called Zooki, ( http://www.zooki.biz/jacob/ ).
I’m still digging in and checking it out, it’s not to the point where I’d tell you to join yet but I wondered what your feelings and comments are and I’ll share mine. I never promote something until I’ve been involved enough to know for a fact that it is safe and good.
They have a video claiming that they’re going to be the next social media platform (facebook, etc.) And the first one to pay the users for things like add space. I took it that if someone was on your page and clicked an add that you’d get a little money.
Interesting idea, they have “downline” (people who joined under you) and paid and free memberships. Not a lot of information on what a paid membership gets you.
Satisfaction Services ( http://www.satisfactionservicesinc.com/ ) is a mystery shopping company, my favorite one in fact.
Once you’re registered with them you can accept assignments to go shop at certain stores they have partnered with, they will expect you to write a detailed report afterwards telling the areas of the store you shopped, the employees you talked to, what they said, how they acted, etc.
I personally bring a voice recorder and leave it in my pocket so I don’t have to remember things, I just play it back and type up the report later at home.
Typically you’ll be assigned to shop certain areas, you’ll need to buy something from the assigned area, they’ll reimburse you for your purchase (typically up to about $30) and pay you also (typically about $10).
There are some scammy mystery shopping companies out there, which is why I am reviewing these for you, I hope it helps. Satisfaction Services and ACE are two that I have a lot of experience working with and can personally guarantee that they are good companies.
I’m posting clues at https://www.facebook.com/UtahTreasure for my “Utah treasure Hunt.”
I got the idea from http://provotreasurehunt.com/ and loved it because it really fits with me, I love geocaching, exploring, historic sites, etc. I also have loved scavenger hunts, contests and more. I’m doing it partly just because it is really fun for me and partly to get the word out about Numis Network and the Free Silver Giveaway.
The first hunt started last night and I’m giving clues that will be leading someone to getting $100.
