04/29 How to Make More Money

Quote From: shelly_80

I went to Opra's website and The View and neither of them have the ads like Dr. Phil.  Hmmmm, i never noticed Neiman Marcus, it's always Macy's on mine.  I did, however, notice when you preview your comments the side ad avertises Robyns latest book, "What's Age Got To Do With It" and surprisingly enough, it isn't a pop-up.  I don't understand why they can't simply give us the option to click the ad if we want to see it.  Why we have to be forced, I'll never know.  I'm gonna keep writing to tech support until they do something. 
It kept going back and forth between Macy's and Neiman Marcus. The Macy's ad was for a digital camera. If the cursor came anywhere near the ad, it unfolded across my post and when I clicked to close it another page opened up. And, I had to click several times to close it. If these companies realized how their ads made us feel about them, I'll bet they'd quit advertising this way.

Good deal!  Hopefully they'll re-arrannge or change some things.  I complained about the ads and the menu options at the top of the page.  I'm sick of it disappearing if I don't keep my cursor directly on it.

I always use the menu options on the bottom of the page for that very reason. The ones on top disappear even with my cursor right on them!

Erin & Jay ?

I am wondering if anyone on this board knows Erin & Jay personally? I am a documentary producer and would love to get in touch with them.

Work at Home and follow up needed

Wow, I agree a lot of the how to apply for a job info was certainly not up to today's standards. It's a rare position where you can physically walk into a building and apply. My husband is blue collar and has often talked and established a rapport with a future supervisor. He has literally thousands of resumes/applications submitted and is not even getting the "thanks but you're overqualified response, let alone an interview. Even in his partying days, he had plenty of interviews.

Some of  his 12 step friends wonder how he stays sober.

He has even applied for CDL Class A truck driving jobs that are offering $8.50 an hour. That is less than $1,000 a month IF he gets 40 hours. Could anyone live off of $1.000 a month? Independently, without a roommate and/or support?

Lastly, this show begs for a follow up.
