Free Stuff

The wooden rail around the deck is capped with a ridge of fresh snow. Our deck now lays hidden beneath an uneven white blanket, while flower pots rest in their wind-swept craters. The dead flowers look so lovely.

It’s a snow day in Northern Illinois. The school called early, so the house is filled now with sounds of telephone conversations and video games. David has had the television going since nine. The adventures of Clifford the Big Red Dog follows George Shrinks. His name reminds me of a chiropractor I used to visit; a helpful Dr. Stretch. I remember another man that fired me long ago whose last name was Hatchet.

Ali busies herself searching the net for new phone plans. One that is free, I ask? Not only free, they pay me a rebate after three months of use, she says. Now tell me there is no free lunch. But first, let me go make a sandwich.

Ummm hold on just a cotton-picking minute there, Harry. Surely a rebate on nothing is nothing...

I always think that Clifford is funny, because I grew up with him, only since I grew up speaking in french, he was Bertrand le Chien Rouge, so Clifford sounds off to me.

Good luck with the new math. I'm still using my abacus to help me with the old stuff.

Greetings Harry
Doing a search for free programs showed up your Free Stuff. I am always looking for free things. I talk to a friend of mine in Denmark regularly for free. It is a better connection than regular telephone. I have been using it for the past 3 years. Go download Skype and you can call anyone else with it anywhere in the world for free. You can get it at: http://Skype.com/ Hope this helps.

New blog launched to expose the disreputable and dishonest American Bulldog breeders and kennels.

If you have a "horror story" when dealing with an American Bull Dog breeder or kennel PLEASE share it with us at http://americanbulldogblog.blogspot.com/

By doing so you will be providing valuable information to potential puppy buyers and help them avoid similar situation.

phone call while on internet




Hi, great blog by the way - didn't think you'd mind me posting this anonymously - as you do allow anonymous posts ;-).

Anyone tried this Skype program yet for free telephone calls over the internet? A guy at work uses it all the time and because he signed all his friends and relatives up he saves a fortune on his calls. Might be worth a go.

Good luck with the blog
