The Revolution Card was just mentioned on the morning news and the reporters were stating how this will give Paypal a run for it's money.

In order for it to give Paypal a run for it's money, it's going to have to be accepted by eBay as an approved payment method. 
Revolution Money Exchange

Revolution Card

Here's a blog I found interesting:
Revolution Card Blog

Quoted from the above article: "will allow users and customers to make payments and fund transfers through its AOL instant messaging service, AIM, for free"

I don't like having instant messengers or using them.

This from the eBay Stores Community

Launch the Red Door Campaign

What is the Red Door Campaign? Simply this is a SELLER initiative to educate
Ebay buyers that Ebay stores officially exists on the Ebay site. Millions of
store items are available for sale but buyers don't know we exist. This needs to
change NOW. Only if we band together to work and publicize this fact are we
going to make a change for the better.

EVERY time we watch this...we laugh...EVERYONE in this house and my g/friends's just not well thought out.

Know why?

Because if I were sleeping and woke up to find my hubster's hands around my neck, it would scare the "hail" outta me.

Diamonds? Love the glittering shimmering shiny stones...but please accept my handy hint.

Handy Hint: Give the necklace to the spouse while she's awake
(I guess the marketing worked, cuz I'm here linking the darn thing)

* Everything eBay / New eBay Desktop Public Beta Launch
« on: October 03, 2007, 07:47:55 AM »
Don't everyone stampede to download this item that thousands tested and eBay received hundreds of suggestions to improve.

eBay Desktop Public Beta Launch

In a nutshell, eBay Desktop lets you take care of most of your normal eBay activity – without having to use your web browser. You can search, bid on, and watch items right from the eBay Desktop application, all while getting alerts about their status. One of the features I like most is the Favorite Search feed, which lets you download items from your favorite searches and browse through them, even when you're not online!

Thanks to our member Biscuit for this information:
Speculation is that the Google index has been hacked, allowing millions of Chinese spam sites to be indexed before legit ones:
I'm gonna enter this one along with the Bundt Cake Contest.

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) and Taste of the South magazine announced today their partnership in a first of its kind search for the ultimate Krispy Kreme doughnut dessert recipe. Join the fun and submit an original recipe using any variety of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for a chance to win Lodge cookware, a Viking mixer and Krispy Kreme gift cards -- a prize pack worth $1,700!

A panel of five judges including Krispy Kreme executive chef, Ron Rupocinski, and editor of Taste of the South magazine, Lorna Reeves, will judge each entry and announce the grand prize winner this November.

"We are excited to partner with Taste of the South in search of a dessert as delicious and unique as Paula Deen's celebrated Krispy Kreme bread pudding," said Ron Rupocinski, executive chef for Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. "The Krispy Kreme Ultimate Recipe Contest is a chance for everyone to get creative and share their own unique recipes featuring their favorite Krispy Kreme doughnuts."

"Krispy Kreme doughnuts are such a great Southern tradition with worldwide popularity, so it's exciting for Taste of the South to be a part of this recipe contest -- and we certainly have no shortage of volunteers to serve as judges!" said Taste of the South editor Lorna Reeves. "I can't wait to sample the many delicious ways clever cooks and bakers will use Krispy Kreme doughnuts in their recipes. Let the tasting begin!"

I started a new blog, for recipes that  are tried and true.

Favorite recipes everyone enjoys or new recipes that I've tried that my family and friends have gone ga ga over.

I'm going to update with recipe contests I'm entering.

More to come...I'm going to do categories...i.e., breakfast, sandwiches, seafood, etc.

I hope to upload some pics of items that I make to go along with the recipes.

My first postiing was of course, Paula Deen's Krispy Cream Donut Pudding

I'd been having problems uploading to my Google Base in the last week, this explains it.

The email from Google is below:


At this time, we're transferring support of Business Locations
bulk uploads from your Google Base account to your Google Local

If you've encountered problems submitting your Business Locations
bulk upload to your Google Base account over the last few weeks,
we recommend that you resubmit your Business Locations bulk upload

* Everything eBay / Auctiva Sellathon Counter Update
« on: August 22, 2007, 08:20:05 PM »
I was scheduling my auctions the other day and lo and behold, I note on my eBay auctions that a Sellathon Counter was placed on my auctions without my permission.

I had always notated the updates that needed to be done to keep the sellathon counters out of my auctions since Auctiva purchased Sellathon.

I kept up with all of my account settings and they always had the necessary controls to NOT allow any type of public counters on my auctions.

I was puzzled as to HOW those counters had gotten into my auctions when all of my controls were set up to NOT have the public counters. ALL the necessary controls were set up correctly to NOT enable the counters.

And they appeared in just one day....not back when the Sellathon became officially available to Auctiva members.

I sent off a Customer Service Ticket and got one response...I didn't feel that was a good enough answer. So I kept the case open and sent more questioning asking for a more in depth explanation.

Below is what I received. I am NOT pleased!


We recently started appending the Sellathon counter to listings like we do the scrolling gallery. This is a new option in the "account settings" on your account.

This setting however overrides the counter setting on the lister page.

I have gone into your account and disabled the auto-append setting in your "account settings". This will cause no future appends of the Sellathon counter and will not post your new listing with the counter either.

Thank you,
Auctiva Support

His name is Greg Patillo and I'm without words. (for once)

Here's all of his works on Youtube.

I can't even begin to imagine how hard he worked to perfect this...

Jeri asked me bout Hannah's school decision in another thread..but I moved it here so as not to muck up Beth's post on Mac Computers.

Anyway...Hannah has applied to UCF and USF. (USF only because it's 45 minutes from our door)

She really wants the program at UCF as Disney and Universal Studios mentor and have the students intern for them.

Her Arts Teacher and her Graphic Arts Teacher want her to apply to Ringling School of Art and Design. We just talked with them earlier this week and they have some artsy fartsy schools they want her to look at. It's up to her and the scholarships that come in.

She loves the school however, she wants a true four year degree. She's got two thoughts on minors right now...French (she's had 2 years and is working on her 3rd) or Education. (so she can teach if need be) And you know what they say bout majoring in the Arts? You need to learn to ask...Wanna Supersize that? <smile> There's alot of gratification but not alot of she wants to insure that she'll have another means of income if need be.

By the way, she made it into AP Graphics instead of honors. EEEEEEEEEEEEK! Hannah is scared half to death to be taking that college level graphics class and even more scared she won't make the required B or else her GPA will fall and then she could lose her Bright Futures Scholarship.

I love her so and have teared up in private this week more than anyone would know or guess. We had her senior pictures taken yesterday and I ordered her cap/gown and tassel. The last of the babies to have this done. <wiping a tear>

Thanks for asking!

BTW, Joshua (my beloved second) applied to the Culinary Institue of America and we couldn't be more thrilled. He'd been doing research on the schools for two months without letting us know. <smile> While having lunch the other day, he smiled and said he'd made a decision finally as to what he wanted to do. (he's bounced around college classes and never really connected with them) We couldn't be more pleased. The one he applied to is Le Cordon Bleu based...which he tells me is a good thing. <wink>

The school affiliates, interns and mentors with once again...Disney. (Do you think my kids have a "thang" for Disney? ha) The other school he will be applying is affiliated with the American Culinary Federation. Joshua upon graduation has decided that he would like to travel to Spain or Italy to hone his skills, if he doesn't get hired by Disney. I told him to do Spain or Italy...Disney will always be here. <smile>
