Free Personals

Ok, a "friend" of mine has done a lot of soulmate searching on online dating sites. Of course, you'd rather find a free site and not spend money on it. But it seems like the free sites never have any good features and mostly spam. Well the free personals at DateHookup.com are changing that scene. Right off the bat, they show you a sampling of singles (FOR FREE!) and they all seem to be real people!! This is in contrast to other free sites where they lure you in with a couple super ridiculously sexy singles and then once you join, there's not a person to be found anywhere. I'd rather have the 8 regular people to convince me to join then a unfair sampling. Honesty...it's what this site is all about (oh and singles)!

Is anyone reading this? I know I read a lot of blogs without ever leaving a comment (often called lurking), but if anyone is checking this out, be nice and leave a comment so I know. It can even be an anonymous comment! My stat counter says I have a fair share of visitors, but why can't we get some lively comment discussion going on? This is like at a pool party. Someone just needs to jump in and then everyeone else will follow suit :)

Hey guys, today I want to tell you about the Eclectrics® Mixer. This thing looks crazy awesome and would be a huge help in the kitchen.

What I use my current (crappy) mixer for most is making homemade pancakes. In fact, why don't I share that recipe with you:
4 cups of Bisquick
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil

But then of course what makes the pancakes really amazing is the optional additions. You know what I'm talking about...the fruit of your choosing (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)...or the ever popular CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES! Notice that I didn't put any measurements for these delicious fruit and chocolate additions. Well, that is because, honestly, I don't think you could add TOO MUCH of these. The more you add, the better it tastes. Especially the chocolate chips...man, I am writing this at 9 in the morning and had a stupid banana for breakfast. I WISH I HAD THESE TODAY!

The problem with my crappy mixer as opposed to the Hamilton Beach® Mixer is a couple of things. The Hamilton Beach® Stand Mixer is faster, bigger, and easier to clean. With my current mixer it always seems to take longer than its worth, plus if I want to make a big batch for my family and friends, I need to do two separate mixings! And forget about cleaning it up, it's disgusting and starting to rust!

Advertising My Site

Well, I picked this web site name hoping that someone might search for it on google and stumble onto my page. Well, today that happened. I got my very first hit for the search of "crazy google ads". I'm #4 on the list, but I must've been appealing enough to click. Thanks Google, you're awesome!

Wow, holidays all all sorts are upon us. We got your Halloween. Then a month later we got your Thanksgiving. Then another month later we got your Christmas. A fun way to round out 2007. Particularly fun if you enjoy your shopping. Well, couponchief.com makes all that easier. They got Gap coupon codes and Best Buy coupon codes (two of my favorites) to help save you money if you got a lot of people to shop for this holiday season (or if you just wanna buy a ton of stuff for yourself). My wife really wants some new clothes for Christmas, and I think I will be the guy to get em for her. I just gotta go raid the closet to check the tag size first ;-)

Why advertising?

I always thought I would make a good ad executive. I have a good eye for what works and feel like I have a good sense of the general public. Plus, I have a good sense of humor which often comes in handy in commercials. The only thing I don't really have is a creative eye for art, but I could hire someone to do that for me. Anyone interested? I can currently afford to pay you a salary of $0 per month!

Bathroom Faucets

Uh oh, my wife and I's bath faucets are a little leaky these days. Bath faucets are such a pain to repair because you can't get in under them like you can on a kitchen sink or what not. Sometimes it's just easier to replace them. Plus, a little change can add a nice spice to the decoration of the bath room. Faucet.com has a crazy amount of cool faucets for any style bath room, and the prices ain't too shabby either! Plus you can get all the accessories (sink faucet, etc.) to match the bath faucet. That way it ties the whole room together!

Free Raleigh, NC Getaway

Wow, haven't written in awhile, but I couldn't pass up writing about a FREE Raleigh Getaway. In case you're geographically inept, Raleigh is in North Carolina. My wife and I hope to one day move to North Carolina, to us it seems like the perfect blend of north and south. We are born and raised in the north, but prefer the warmer climates of the south. Raleigh and North Carolina in general seem like a perfect blend of the two.

So, you wanna know more about this FREE Raleigh Fall Getaway? Ok. How's a start at a Marriott sound? That's a pretty snazzy hotel. How about a $25 gift card to a delicious local bistro for lunch? YUMMY! I'm not sure what Rum Runners is but I do know that (1)You get FREE VIP Admission and (2) You can't go wrong with a name like Rum Runners. You also get 2 tickets to each of the following: North Carolina Theatre, North Carolina Museum of Art’s Landscapes from the Age of Impressionism, and Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. And if that isn't enough included in the package, you could always splurge and check out the Diwali Festival!

Need to improve...

I don't like to give up! I still have a lot of ideas for things to write about on here, I just need to do a better job of bringing in an audience. I'm thinking maybe I need a new twist. You'd think a blog about advertising would have good advertising. Oh well, back to the drawing board!

Memory Walk

Memory Walk

Hi guys today I am here to talk to you about the Alzheimer's Association. This topic is very close to me, because my grandfather was a victim of Alzheimer's. He has recently just passed away, but the disease left him a shell of the man he used to be. A "good day" was one where he might smile when you came to visit...forget about him remembering or being able to say your name. While there are a ton of awful diseases that cause great physical pain, there is no disease that can match the amount of mental pain caused by Alzheimer's.

So what can you do about it? Well, for one you can join the annual Alzheimer's Memory Walk. Similar to the other popular charity walks such as the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Race for the Cure and the March of Dimes, the Memory walk is a nationwide annual event benefiting the sufferers of Alzheimer's and the efforts being made to find successful treatments and cures. Since 1989, the Memory Walk has raised over 225 million dollars!

So, the Memory Walk needs team captains! This Memory Walk is held nationwide in literally hundreds of cities across the United States, so without a doubt there is one being held within a few short minutes of your home (who knows maybe they even walk right by your house). It's still early, but it's never too early to sign up as a team captain and help the fight against Alzheimer's!
