FUN: has to be a pony in here

*** begin quote ***

“There has to be a pony in here somewhere!”

*** end quote ***

There are many references to this “pony” or that “pony” on the web. Even on some prestigious sites. But, no one has the honest to repeat the whole story.

The original has an absurdly honest ring to it.

We know know parent would do such a thing. We know that children always see things with “pristine glasses”. We know know child no matter how naive would NOT think of playing in that, nor that there was a good surprise under all of it.

But this is a this a parable, a legend, a fable, a … a … morality play in a few sentences.

If we always see the glass as half-full, then we’ll be better off.

Will we?

So is it “I’ll believe it when I see it” or “I’ll see it when I believe it”?


An new shorthand for a meme?

YAHOO ANSWER: Free Advertising For My Purse Party Buiness

*** begin quote ***

Free Advertising For My Purse Party Buiness???

I’m looking for free or very cheap ways to advertise my purse party business. I’m looking for local and nationwide ideas! Any suggestions would be great!

*** end quote ***

Well for under a fifty bucks, some sweat, and a few months calendar time, imho, you can get “known”. I’d suggest a blog as the underlying engine for your biz advertising.

(1) Check for an available domain name you like (www dot party purse business dot com), but don’t buy it yet.

(2) Get a free wordpress blog at Sign up as PartyPurseBisuiness blog. Or whatever domain name you decide on.

(3) Buy the domain name feature from wordpress for $15 — it includes the registration of the domain name. (How’s that for cheap)

(4) You now have a web site and a domain name. Use the blog part to put fresh content on your blog. Put something meaningful there daily.

(5) Use the static pages part to put picture or stories or prices or events out on your “site”.

(6) Sign up for the free Gmail for Domains and get email via your domain. You can be party.purse at pursepartybusiness dot com.

(7) Sign up (free) at the various blog directories.

(8) Submit to the search engines

(9) Use the search engines to “find” yourself which improves your site in the search engines eyes. :-) [That’s circular reasoning! By telling the search engine to look for me and finding it, it makes me more find-able by regular people.]

So you’ll have a professional website with up to date content for cheap.

Yell if you want help with it. And, let us know how you make out.

LIBERTY: I support the troops … bring them home now!

by Ron Paul
Before the U.S. House of Representatives, May 22, 2007


***Begin Quote***

It is conveniently ignored that the only authentic way to best support the troops is to keep them out of dangerous undeclared no-win wars that are politically inspired. Sending troops off to war for reasons that are not truly related to national security and, for that matter, may even damage our security, is hardly a way to patriotically support the troops.

***End Quote***

I agree 100%. Sound recall! (It’s a bugle call in the old cavalry movies.) Out troops should spike anything to heavy to move, and take the first thing heading home (i.e., plane, train, bike) or shank’s mare.

No excuses, no apologies, no plan to plan the plan.


p.s., And, I still think every politician should attend the funeral of every GI in their “district”! Maybe then it would sink in that this is NOT some kid’s game with the objective to fill your pockets and be popular. No, it’s deadly serious.
