A quick post to help a friend out.I myself like to “get paid to fill out surveys”.I have been doing surveys for years.A lot of companies honestly pay you to work for them.Sometimes they take less than 5 minutes,but most run from 15-45 minutes.Each survey pays different and each one will tell you what to expect.

Just do be careful when signing up.There are a lot of “legitimate paid surveys” out there but
Scammers love to use good sites to mess you up.Do a quick google search and you can find all the info you need.I myself do not endorse all the info here but offer it to you so maybe it can help you out like surveys do me.good luck!
In these hard economic times a lot of us are looking for a
“second job”

finding a side job that you can do from home sometimes is difficult ,but very possible,so by finding a way to
“earn income online” you are saving drive time,gas money,and getting to be your own boss.Not too mention like my situation,i am not able to work away from home with the grands here a lot.Try it ,see if it workd for you..Good luck

Saturday Happenings =Contest's and giveaways in blogland!

Good morning friends,
It is cold this morning here in south alabama,the fire is blazing in the front and kerosene heater in the kitchen..All is well..;)I have 2 -3 year old's asleep on their ''pallet'' in the living room and little charlize mae is asleep in the crib next to them.As my readers know little kolby mainly stays with us ,this is home to him,and i was watching charlie mae where julie could go with darrell to work last night.They were playing in town this weekend,his band,50 miles north.Then at 9 pm ,Adam brings little adam,3,(neighbors)to stay because his mom has gotten drunk and acting crazy in front of him.Of course the little fellow does not need to see that if at all possible so of course he could stay.All 3 got asleep around midnight.Charlie was up at 6 and now went back to sleep..So nannabee has a little while to jump on here before they all wake your weekend goes well.Christmas is almost upon us again.A lot of people are getting stressed out this year.My wish for you is don't!Christmas is for remembering an act of love,Jesus, and i think,making us try and act the same.I don't mean we literally go die for people,jesus did that,but we can show others love and caring in our ways.Donate if you can to someone in need,volunteer if you have the free time,take a meal to an elderly or sick person,visit nursing home and hospitals.clean someones home for free,cook them a meal,babysit a night,Visit childrens hosp's and take a few gifts and smiles to the children there.Place food or gfts on someones door and from afar..any and all these will give you a feeling inside nothing else will do..and above all take time to pray for others as well as our nation and leaders,We need this badly,and always be thankful to god for all he has done,guidance of the holy spirit and for jesus,who showed us the ultimate act of selfless love.
Merry Christmas all!! god bless

QuicKutz is sponsoring an awesome contest over at

vanillajoy-you can win a Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter by QuicKutz and let me tell you i want this!!!! i need one badly,kind of hard to buy something for myself with all the young babies i have in my immediate family!kids must come first,so i would jump and scream for joy to win this...i have been wanting to open an etsy store and this would enable me to do it to help with finances as well as be able to do something i enjoy again!!!
Here are some of my favorite features about the Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter:

* You can cut your design any size between 1/4″ and 8 ” tall and up to 39″ long. That’s a pretty exciting range of possible sizes!
* Because the Silhouette hooks straight up to your computer, you have access to all True Type fonts - your font possibilities are endless and FREE. I know I probably have hundreds of fonts, and that much freedom and selection in a digital craft cutter is pretty darn awesome.
* Learning how to set up and use the Silhouette is easy - I felt comfortable with the program almost right away.
* All your files/designs are stored on the computer in one place, so they’re easy to access and you don’t have to think about storage.
* You can download designs from the QuicKutz website straight to your computer, so instant gratification! No waiting in line or having to go out in the snow to get a new design.
* The Silhouette also cuts adhesive vinyl, and with an 8″ maximum height, a 39″ maximum length, and all of the fantastic QuicKutz designs, you can do some pretty fancy home decor stuff all on your own. The Quickutz vinyl comes in lots of bright and beautiful colors too!
* You can create your own designs and cut them out. This is probably one of the coolest features of the Silhouette, especially if you’re a talented artist. You can create and cut your own designs - a potential Etsy business!

economy ,christmas =giveaways around the blog...

Good morning readers.
Hope your weekend is looking good.We missed the snow and ice here in south central alabama,i for one am glad.If it were just the beautiful snow i would love it,but here we do not see it often and when it happens it means busted pumps,water lines and people get very sick.So for all of those reasons i don't wish it here.I am sure in this state of economy we have there are lots of people as well that can not afford the heating cost either.In a lot of states there is a high deposit on gas ,elec. etc already but down here it has always been low.I heard the other day that a girl paid 550.oo to turn on her families power (not bad credit either) and greg,a friend of ours,just turned on his gas and cost 450.00!That may not be high elsewhere but here that is 2 weeks of working check!A friend was joking about the economy the other day and saying glad they lived here ,they could not tell any difference.Everything did cost a little less here ,but the money is far less than elsewhere.I suppose that too must change.To all of you out there struggling in this i am sorry.I truely feel this all will pass(if not time for the lord) if so it will get far worse for 7 years...otherwise i know we can survive this intact,we just must use commonsense.If you can not pay for it with cash,DONT BUY IT! That is all it comes down too.We have turned into a greedy nation and we must quit this mindset is we dont want to loose all.
A lot of folks worry about christmas.Think outside the box.There are tons of ideas online for you to do this year for your loved ones and friends that are free or very inexpensive.Just look around ,you will see.Lot of folks ,including me,have found wonderful gift items at thrift stores,christian centers,goodwill,etc..try these places out.Better to shop that way than die of stress come spring because you are in bankruptsy or worse!!!! I shop these places often,have volunteered in 3 of them over th years when i had time..Really nice and sometimes new items for pennies on the dime.Make some handcrafted items..And a way i make a little extra money is with surveys.You just must be very careful the sites you sign up with that are legit.Email me and i will be glad to post all the sites i am signed on and have been paid with.I also love dong contest and have won at times.To these bloggers offering the contest for us i thank you.Some of you never know the help and blessings you are...
have a great weekend and good luck ..contest below....

God Bless Us All and Merry Christmas!!!

A Wonderful Sight

December 12 — The Full Cold Moon
Sky watchers will be dazzled by an exceptionally high, bright, and large Moon. In fact, this Moon is 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full Moons this year. Why? The Moon is both in its full phase and at a point in its orbit that is nearest Earth, called its perigee. When these events occur together, the Moon is closer to Earth than usual. The effect? The Full Cold Moon will appear especially large near the horizon as the Sun sets.

The Moon is also high at this time of year; when it's overhead (near midnight), it will light up the landscape. Take a magical stroll and see your world at night. You won't need a flashlight!
