Hi dear mylot friends. I am back from a bit long absence. What made me busy for the last few days or month, is our continuing treatment of my two year old son. Some of my old friends here know that our son is fighting Sleep Apnea. And for quite sometimes now, since December of last year, we come and visit the doctor. And with some medications we are taking now, since then, I myself take in-charge of our son in his daily medication. It might going to this way until the sixth month, but I hope it will get sooner. The medication will be going to take a long time and expensive. But thanks to all of you who extends help. And for the prayers, too. You know who you are. I know it's going to be expensive and I am afraid we will lose funds. And so I thought of going active, back again here, to at least earn something, in addition to what I earn offline. I grabbed the chance to get a low-cost broadband. It's actually a post-paid plan. The good thing there, is even without my own computer, I can bring the USB modem anywhere. I can use any computer or laptop in this case. And, wallah, I can get connected. [b][i]So, do you think I can balance the time with my family and mylot? Or do you think I can manage to earn more, even just for the internet bill? How about you, do you have balanced time with family and work? Do you earn more to pay for your internet bill? Can you give me some suggestions in which to earn more, online?[/i][/b]

In USB modem you will pay P20 per hour. It is just like renting a computer in an internet cafe. That is the amount I usually pay for Smart and Globe USB modem. I think that will be fine if you are using a laptop and not using the modem not so very often. Otherwise I still prefer the plan 999 because it is unlimited and my family can enjoy surfing as much as we can for the same price of 999. I understand your predicament. I do also have sick sister and mother that needs constant medication and so I have to also exert my very best to earn more. Expenses for your son's medication will really push you to find ways and means to earn. I can't give you any other means of earning. As I told you before apart from mylot, I'm also writing for reviewstream. Other than that I can't refer any other site. I hope some other users can give you more tips on how to earn more.

Hi Neil. I think you're doing a wonderful job of keeping your family first. You do more with and for your family than any father I've ever known. I am not in the same situation as you, but it seems that we have an outrageous tax bill to pay now that the government has caught up with my husband who did not pay taxes on the money he made when he sold his house. He made a profit of about $200,000.00 and spent it all! I do not know what he spent it all on but have a feeling that he gave his sister quite a lot of it, and bought himself a lot of expensive "toys". I also owe taxes on the money I received for the back benefits from Disability. It is all hitting us at once and I may be left with no money in the bank. I hope it doesn't come to that but, for now, I have to watch every penny and make sure my husband learns ways to cut back expenses. We're probably going to owe over $60,000.00 once I get it all figured out! It could even be more because our government tacks on interest and penalties if it's not paid on time and it's already been years since he sold his house. I may have to start looking for ways to make more money online as well! But, I did have a thought for you. Your wife is very good at making things and I was wondering if she could try to sell her hand-made things on a site like Etsy.com. I'm not sure if that is strictly for U.S. citizens or not but it might be worth checking out. Etsy is a site that sells hand-made things for you for a fraction of what you would get. Also, I've been gathering seeds from flowers on our property and have sold some. I hope to have many more varieties to sell soon. Since you are in a tropical country, you may have some flowers or even fruits that people all over the world might love to buy. If I can find a website that sells things like this (besides eBay), I'll let you know. One day, I hope to have my own website set up to sell seeds. If I ever do, I'll let you know and, if you're interested, let me know. You could even ship the seeds to me and I could try to sell them here for you. Gardening is a HUGE business over here. I was shopping yesterday and noticed that this year's vegetable and flower seeds are already for sale. The gardening season doesn't start here for at least another three months, but people were buying lots of seeds already (myself included ). If you have any tropical flowers or rare/unusual flowers or vegetables, they could bring in some extra money! If I can think of any other ways to make a few dollars, I'll let you know.

hi marti. if we will talk about Etsy.com, i think we can try ebay as there is already a local version of this in the philippines. i will talk to my wife if she will let some of her hand-works sold and i think we can do it at ebay philippines. about the plants, so far, we don't have a big land here in our rented house. i don't think it is possible to go with the plant business. but you are right, in this tropical country, there are a lot of varities of plants that can grow. aside from flowers, there are big companies and big time businessmen who are already in the field of exporting fruits and flowers from here. mangoes, bananas, pineapples are some fruits that are being exported. maybe, i can do online jobs instead of offline. this is one that completes me, lol.

hi Neil, I can only pray and hope for your son and your family that things will be better, and being back on Mylot will at least help some with the bills, as I have a husband who works and pays bill and I am disable, my money from mylot comes in handy for the little things I like to buy for myself, its sort of pocket money for me. I do not go to any other site to earn money so I really cannot give you any advice but work hard on Mylot and earn more here. Good luck. Hugs. Tamara

with my posts here and my blog about him, maybe, you can get some points on whether he also have apnea. they say that snoring is one cause of apnea. try to check my blog at: http://neildc-magiting.blogspot.com you can try to bring him to a neurologist, i guess they are the one who are experts in snoring...
