"Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value."
- Wallace D. Wattles

I woke up this morning! - All the rest is BONUS!

Take good care of YOUR day today!

Hey Folks.

Fraud and theft.

That is big words to put in your mouth or print on your keyboard
these days when the whole world is economically up-set-down.

Nevertheless I think it's very important to inform about fraudsters
in the area of small/home business because many in this business
are targeted by those people without any regret at all. They only
care about their own well-being and don't care at all of others.

Many newbie's are getting their first experience of Internet business
working as affiliates. And that is normally a very good start. It does
not require a website and normally the companies are honest and
paying your commission.

BUT, there is exceptions. First, it's VERY important that you read their
T.O.S. If there is any mentions of minimum payout, do not join. Even if
it's free to join. Many companies makes good money by making
limitation of paying commissions. Just think for a moment what it means
having a $100 limit to pay commissions. Most affiliates never reach
that limit and the "company" get their customers completely free.

Now a good example. I joined back in 2003.
I can't be sure of the exact date as they blocked the access to my member
area. I worked a lot with royal-responder. I purchased their autoresponder
package for several autoresponders for my SFI program.

However, after a while I wanted to make a brake as the respond for
the autoresponder cost did not make a reasonable return. So I made
a PayPal stop payment of subscription. That was a very big mistake.

I still was an active affiliate. I had several active customers to their
AR systems. And I earned commissions. Between $25 to $50 per month,
paid regularly to my PayPal account.

That was before 2007. Suddenly they stopped their affiliate program.
No email, no message of any kind. And still, that was their decision.
It's up to them. If they don't want more affiliates, ok, stop, no problem.
But don't you think they should pay what they owed? No, they did not.
They simply think they can stop the affiliate program and not pay what
they owe.

To me personally, it's not a big problem. It's just $50. A couple of
burgers. But just think for a moment what it means for them????
Some companies may have 1000's of affiliates. All getting customers
to them. Earning all between a couple of dollars to hundreds. And
suddenly, no more affiliate program, no more payouts!

In short, stay long away from royal-responder and all programs
promoted by their "CEO" Todd Thombson.

And keep in mind. It cost nothing to pay somebody via PayPal
so if an affiliate program have limits of payments, get off!

mind after reading Mr. Wattles book.

The only business I work with, since 2002, besides '2Bucks' an Ad

they have done that since 1985, online since 1998.

5. Ask Lena. Health Questions and Answers.


I have recently had CT scans on my Liver for Cyst, the
Dr. says it is simple cystic disease. The last CT scan
showed that I now have a small cyst on my kidney as well.
So then I had a 24 urine sample done and blood work for
my kidney. It showed that my creatine is slightly high
and my protein is about double normal. What can I do about
correcting this issue?

Thanks for being a listening board.



Well Bob, Cysts are extremely common over the last three
decades and becoming more so. Yes, anytime the kidneys are
having a problem creatinine and protein will show up abnormal.
Doesn't mean they are in severe danger but a warning to make
some changes.

The Most Discreet Man.

The guys are playing poker when Fred loses $1,000 on a
single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table.

Richard looks around and asks, "Now, who is going to tell
his wife?" So they draw straws and Bob picks the short straw.

"Be discreet", the guys tell Bob and "Don't make this situation
any worse than it is."

Bob replies, "Gentlemen! Discreet? I'm the most discreet
man you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name."

So Bob walks over to the Fred's house, knocks on the door
and the wife answers.

"What do you want, Bob?", she asks.

He says, "Your husband just lost $1,000 playing poker."

She hollers, "TELL HIM TO DROP DEAD!"

Bob says, "I'll tell him!"

most commonly posed by dog owners:

1. What supplies do I need to have on hand before I bring
my new puppy home?The first thing you'll need is a travel
crate for your dog's trip home. You'll also need to buy some
high quality puppy food and bowls for food and water. Your
vet, breeder or shelter personnel can tell you which brands
of food are the best. Other items you'll need to get in advance
of the new puppy's arrival are: an adjustable collar, a leash,

11. Poetry by Charlotte Appleton.

The Assent

A Sonnet Sequence

For Fernando Maza, painter

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
Without form there can be no emptiness,
Without emptiness there can be no form.
Heart Sutra, Buddhist Scripture

12 of 22. 13 in the next issue.)

But you are not my love, and cannot be,
If friendship suffers from the truth, then so
Be it, but since I cannot see to see,
So near and yet so far have I to go
To find you in your self and not in trust
To someone else, who also states her claim
To love you, whilst I do not yield to lust
Alone to be more lonely in its name,
Nor can I reach to take what is not mine
Since stolen kisses have a bitter taste,
And must, respecting what I hold divine,
Refrain from laying others' hearts to waste
Who though I do not know them, soon will tell
What kind of woman sends them to this hell.

Poetry brought to you by Charlotte Appleton.

15. Computer Security Tip of the week.

Brought to you by Syd Tash at:

Of Windows and Flash Drives.

Here are a couple of notes I've been meaning to mention
to you, when I got the chance. So here goes:

Turn it off. sometimes

Do you leave your computer on all the time? And you just
let it go into hibernation mode? Nothing wrong with that.
But every few days, you should do a hard reboot.

This lets Windows clean itself up and start fresh. Temporary
files and fragments from your previous operations are dumped.
Click Start, Turn Off Computer, Restart.

This applies equally well to other OS such as Linux, and
even for a Mac.

Remove . safely

Do you use a flash (USB) drive for backups, or other purposes?
I sure do. I love the little beasties. But they must be removed
(unplugged) properly.

One way to do that is to click the icon in your system tray, on
the bottom right. It has a green arrow over a little grey disk
drive. You will see something like "Safely remove USB Mass
Storage Device .".

Click on it, then remove the USB drive. Or you may see an Eject
button on one of the screens or popups produced by your flash
drive. Use that if you prefer.

Do not simply pull out the drive when you are finished working
with it. You could damage it, or lose data.

Syd Tash is a longtime computer security consultant, author
and founder of The SaferSurfing Project. He has been keeping
Web surfers like you safe and secure since the last century.
