I was introduced to a great homestead site with all sorts of information on gardening and self  sufficiency, though I’ll let you be the judge ♥

highlyuncivilized – this life made from greater than 50% post consumer content.

There are too many unanswered questions for me to chose a certain religion, therefor I am not religious. Though that doesn’t mean I don’t have morals, values or that I am an evil person. The following quote conveys a core aspect of my personal belief on how the world should be…

QOTD by the Dalai Lama XIV.


I will try almost anything to earn online, and this site is free to join so I have nothing to lose. I am going to promote and try to reach the easy payout of $30, if I get paid  I be Happy!

Though, either way I will update everyone to whether is does pay or not.

In the mean time if you want to check it out, just follow this link

-> Paid2Refer.com Earn Money easily by promoting a link – 0.5$ per referral link visit.

I Found This To Be A Scam! Once I reached the cash out threshold they wanted me to complete offer to receive my pay!


ChatAbout is an online social networking site that goes beyond sites that we may know. I joined roughly 9 or 10 months ago, and really liked the concept of having different topics that members could post on. Back then I posted in their Pregnancy forum and their Sweepstakes forum, though I quickly lost interest in my quest of online money. Though the whole concept of being able to Chat About so many things kept me from deleting my account, and I always visited when I received emails.

 

A few weeks ago I responded to one of my ChatAbout emails to find out that they have changed. They added some new features like the News Discussions and Questions & Answers and something else… Something I have not seen on any other site. A Point Reward System the gives me points to Chat About the things I do or don’t like! How awesome is that?! With Thousands of Topics I can search and find just about anything, and if I can’t find what I am looking for? I can simply “Start Topics”!

 

I can earn 2 points each for commenting or replying to Topics, commenting on News Discussions and for Asking or Answering Questions, up to 50 points a day.  I also earn 5 points with the Daily Poll. Doesn’t sound like that much right? Well there’s more! On top of the 55 points I can earn Unlimited points other ways.

 

I can write as many reviews a day I want worth 5 points each, as many articles a day I want at 20 points each (both subject to review by administration and credited within 24-36 hours after submitting) and a 20% of friend referral points for life!  If all of that is not enough there are more point earning opportunities… The Bonus Area. This area is updated daily, it is where the Daily Poll is found, there are videos that I can watch to earn points, free to try offers, surveys and trialpay offers and much more!

 

What can I use my points for? I can use them on cool prizes  like necklaces, iPhone cases, cosmetics and more. They even added Amazon.con Codes and PayPal.

 

Can you join and earn your own points? If you are at least 18 years old and are located in the US, Canada, Australia, or UK then you are eligible to join. If you would like you can use my Referral Link    (I only get one point per unique click) or you can head over to ChatAbout yourself and check it out.

 

Do you know of any social network sites that  “reward”  you? What topics do you like to Chat About?

 

**UPDATE**

After trying to redeem $20 from ChatAbout they removed me and Everything I wrote from their site.  I emailed them inquiring why they removed me and they refused to answer my email. Some people have great success with this site, though I forewarn you, if you decide to check them out, they can and will delete you for no apparent reason.

“There is a …


“There is a time to take counsel of your fears, and there is a time to never listen to any fear.”

― George S. Patton

 I have to admit that I am still learning which fears are which. Like I have been in several car accidents in my life, one of which threw me out of the back windshield while I was pregnant, so I have a legit reason for being terrified to travel. Though I have to suppress my fears every time one of my children,  my husband or I have an appointment, have to shop and so forth… Do you have any fears that are hard for you to overcome?


The government is STILL in shutdown, with no end in sight! Is this the beginning of the end for life as we know it? I said before that I don’t believe in Zombies yet I do believe in being prepared, and I found a great source at…  How to Live Off the Land and Survive in the Wild.


This past week has been terrible for my children. First there was So Much rain and one day the rain came down So Hard that my husband made me go outside and help him find branches to hold our veggies up! I was shivering when I came back inside. It rained for almost 5 days straight and the first day after the rain stopped, you couldn’t take a step into the yard without sinking almost 2 inches.
Then, out of nowhere, we get a heatwave (which we are still encountering) with advisories stating that children, elders and pets, should avoid going outside, and to avoid using as much electricity as possible…  What’s worse? They are calling for More Rain when the heat goes away! Grr!
It has not been easy for anyone in our house, I am very thankful that we have an air conditioner, but keeping everyone occupied has been a challenge. Once we all find something we all can do, someone gets bored before the end and it starts all over again.
I guess I can’t really complain, as I have been having the kids doing exercises and dancing to get their energy out, and they do a good job of thinking up things to do, like drawing, writing stories, and taking over my tablet (which leaves me bored 😉 ) Though I still have to say…
Bad weather go away so my kids & I can go Out to play lol

How To Make A Friend


The past lies in the future

The future lies in the past

It takes time

To make something really last.

 

A good person is hard to find

When you do

Losing them is the last thing you want

So keep that thought in the back of your mind.

 

You have to respect

People’s property and how they feel

In return you will gain the same.

Within the time it takes for the pain to heal

You will realise that life

Is nothing more than a game.

 

Communication is key

In a great relationship

To lose this key in life

Can cause yourself hardship.

 

It is hard to live life

When forced to distrust

Give no reason for a person to doubt

Honesty is a must.

 

If you’re still together in the end

You will have commitment

Because you will have more than a relationship

You will have made a great friend.

Sifting through My Collection over the past few days has aroused a lot of memories, a lot of emotions. I use to write and draw to give people I loved, gifts from my heart. So some of my work is scattered, maybe even lost over the years.

Just as I lost much of my work from moving over the years or when I lived in a basement which flooded and my water colored Yosemite Sam & Road Runner bled into everything I owned. Then there are some poems which have aged over time, pages turned yellow, writing so small and faded, making it impossible to read…

Yosemite Sam & Road Runner with a pic of a Catfish which I was able to save.

I have not worked on my collection as much over the past few years, lack of inspiration, to much stress to think straight, or maybe subconsciously I’m saying “What’s the point it will only get lost anyways?” Whatever the reasons I have realized that a part of me, my life’s history per say, is missing.

I have changed so much over the years, some ways for the better, other ways not so much thus giving me more reasons to not only post more of my work before it becomes lost, but to work harder at making myself whole again.

Left sheet of paper is new to show the yellowing of my poems.

A rainbow in the clearing

Waiting

For you to reach it’s end.

You wonder curiously

As you near the rainbow

What lies ahead?

Colors growing brighter

More intense

Here we go now

It’s just around the bend.

Energy surrounds you.

The closer you get

The farther away you want to be.

You now know the truth

As you look in awe

To see is to believe

are the words you said.

You now have what you need

So use it well

Because you never know

A life goes on

What you will see.

The World Turns


The world around me spins
Yet I stand still
Waiting for my number
Just trying to chill

I have come to realize
That I can never learn too much
The smarter I am
The harder I am to touch.

Still I have so much to learn
As days pass me bye
I wave them on as they are nothing more
Than a grey cloud in the sky.

When I start to feel as if I’m too late
To change the hands of time
Everything seems to come together
Like a charming melody of a wind chime.

Whether I do it myself
Or someone lends a helping hand
Learning from my experience
Is life’s only demand.

Apply my collective wisdom
To the struggles in which I face
When the battle is done I will find
That there is more to life than ‘First Place’.

Love Courage and Knowledge
Often leaves me with burns
As I look upon my scars I realize
That my world still turns.

Life is never as it seems

as you try to keep something

you don’t even have.

The harder you try

The harder you fall.

Though nothing feels so right!

No matter how many times you drop,

Get Up

Move Forward and

Try Again!

Because in the end you will find that you will get what you need and

Fate will take care of everything else.

What is… Is… And Life… Just is…

It’s up to you to make the best of it.
