Alexandria37 I know the feeling ronaldinu. However, I think you would have a better chance of making at least part of the money by cleaning windows, etc than trying to make it on line. Still, it's a good idea to ask people here on myLot for suggestions as some of them I am...

Snow. Snow. And more Snow Would someone please turn off the snow machine? We aren't as covered as the east coast but we have more than usual here in Central Ohio. Usually we have one or two decent snows that cover the...

Alexandria37 Yes, here in Ireland we have had more than our fair share of snow this year. The country was almost at a standstill because we are not used to so much snow. I also got snowed in while out on Cougar Mountain in Oregon last November. Fortunately we got a break...

Have you ever been told "I love you?" from someone whom you have just met on the net? I am sure that it has happened to most of us here even though some of us are reluctant to admit it. Well an American friend of mine has fallen...

Alexandria37 I can't understand that sort of behaviour either. When I was living at home, my parents always told me that if I didn't have something good to say about somebody, then I shouldn't say anything and I in turn preach the same thing to my children. I prefer to...
