A word from our sponsors

You may have noticed a few changes in the upper left hand corner of our blog. We’ve decided to experiment with e-commerce. There is a fantastic place in my mind where this blog supports our family. It is a silly place, I know. But dream is not the worst thing you can have.

If you shop Amazon.com regularly, you can use the link on this blog to get there. We get a small commission for every item purchased. Here are some of the items that can be purchased at Amazon.com: books, movies, gloves, fanny packs, lunch boxes, computers, plasma TVs, underpants. All that stuff.

Whenever I write about music, and I love to write about music, I will put a link to the iTunes page for that particular artist, album, or song. You can use iTunes to hear a snippet of the song. If you end up buying the song, we get a few cents.

Bonsai Trees. This one is going to be fun. The link on the upper left connects you with Bonsai Boy, the largest online retailer of bonsai trees. I have never owned a bonsai tree. But I like the idea of owning one. Karine tells me that if I make enough in commissions from selling other people bonsai trees, I can purchase one for our home. We are going to make commercials.

Thanks.

We only have to sell 5,200 bonsai trees a year to become financially independent, globe-trotting entrepreneurs. So far, we have sold zero. Wait until you see our commercial. Then we will sell more.

too bad you didn't think of this Bonsai sponsor thing about a year ago....my mom totally bought one. Come to think of it, I wonder if it is still alive....I suppose I should ask her.
