Giuliana & Bill

So I'm watching Giuliana & Bill and don't even get me started on what's wrong with that sentence. I know. But I'm watching Bill spend the evening with his nieces making friendship bracelets, the kind made from embroidery floss? Then they go around to a couple stores & sell them for, get this, $5 each! Really? That's some profit margin, and I know this for fact because I've just started embroidering and embroidery floss is like, 37 cents each. Anyway, the store starts with a "small collection" and pays the girls $100. I'm thinking, how sweet. The store manager is supporting the girls, even though their asking price is a oh, a tad high.

During the little interview sessions Giuliana & Bill did together, Bill said he "might have made a few calls before going to the stores". And I'm just not sure what to think of that. Again, I'm completely horrified that I'm A. watching Giuliana & Bill and that 2. I'M PUTTING THIS MUCH THOUGHT INTO GIULIANA & BILL.

My point is, what is teaching the kids really? They seemed like perfectly nice young girls, and they seemed genuinely surprised that they received $100 for their wares, but it was hardly realistic.

I'm just saying.

I know! I was thinking the exact same thing.

yeah, but that has got to be better than saying "While I was watching Khloe and Kourtney take Miami..."

Have I thanked you yet for all the love you've left for me lately? If not, THANK YOU with all my heart. You are so sweet, Tracy.

Hi. Stranger here. Saw your tweet to/from Dooce and thought I would leave some words of encouragement where you might see them since I don't do Twitter...
I've been somewhere close to where you are and it was heartbreaking. But my husband and I both survived and we're more understanding of each other because of it. Good luck to you both. My only advice is to find the best treatment you can afford. And love each other.

Wow, I need Bill to make some calls for me. I could use some people over paying for my products... that is if I had any products. Maybe I could get in on the floss/bracelet racket. Has to pay better than blogging.

I think that's kind of a statement about what's wrong with this generation. Too much, too soon, too easy. It creates all kinds of problems.

How are you? Hugs, Jen

Oh Tracy...watching paint dry has got to be more interesting than the lives of G & B. i know, it's easy to get sucked in. i am guilty of it too. but hopefully that will be the last time you give much thought to those damned shows!

Totally unrelated subject, but do you find Giuliana too thin? I mean, she looks SO thin to me that her head looks too big for her body. She reminds me of a bobble head.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
