I am from Tewkesbury England » Post #1

Wed Nov 30, 2016 06:18 in General Talk

Well, I am not. I don't even know where that is and have never heard of it before.

I was recently in touch with a relative that traced us back to 15th century Tewkesbury England.

I'll have to google that some time and see what that area looks like.

I also found that my great great grandmother was half Cherokee. I suppose my folks came
over on the ship from England and began having affairs with the Cherokee. :?

Clixsense should stop changing sponsors » Post #2

Tue Nov 29, 2016 22:03 in General Talk

They don't.

There is only specific incidents in which a member may change a sponsor.....such as
sponsor being deceased.

Members cannot change sponsors on the fly. Just like members cannot cancel their
membership. If a member is not active for 90 days, their account goes inactive but
it is not deleted. Very smart idea actually because they cannot legally enroll again
since they still have an account.

As I stated above, there may be special circumstances when a member may change
sponsors and must be approved by the admin only.

These are the presents everyone remembers for years. Nobody remembers the Christmas list other than the biggest presents even six months later.

Funny stuff. :lol:

You do have a point. I can recall a few things I received at Christmas as a kid but even as an adult,
I don't remember much unless it is something from my kids and grandkids. I think people tend to
remember the things that are truly important or have some sort of special attachment. Just like a
family gathering. I am going to remember the family gathering and conversations more so than a
present under a tree.

Most anyone can be a member here no matter how many full time jobs they have.

Before I lock this topic, I will say the words I hate to hear 'to be clear'.....

To be clear, as far as I know, there is not any 'reprimands' in these forums.

What we do have in these forums, is a notification system that will warn members
of rules not being followed.

I submitted a 'warning' notification to you 'mappo710' due to numerous complaints
and some 'put down's' that I witnessed from your posts.

Everyone should read the forum rules and try to abide by them. If members do not
abide by them, there is moderators to remind them. It's not a reprimand, it's a
warning that is a notification to remind members of the forum rules.

Some times it seems like there was a lot less to buy in the 60's compared to now.
I'm probably wrong about that and it probably seems that way to me now since I am no longer a kid.
Also, probably seems that way to me due to all the various kitchen gadgets and stuff for people other than kids, today.

Yeah, I think most everyone, even adults, got winter wear at Christmas time.
School coat and/or Church coat, gloves, sweaters, boots, ear muffs, etc. Ice
Skates was always a big seller, I am sure. Bikes, but for me, that was something
I got for my birthday, not Christmas.

Games were always a very big seller but that was something I never got unless
I bought it myself. I wasn't allowed to have playing cards or dice. So anything
that had cards or dice with it, I did not get at Christmas......although there were
games and cards I would sneak and buy on my own.

I always got dolls at Christmas. It was the barbs doll era. I remember wanting
the barbie that had hair that would grow and I got it one year at Christmas. She
had a hole in the top of her head and to make her hair grow, I would simply pull
it out of her head. :lol:

One year an uncle married and my new aunt got me one of the Christmas gifts
that I will never forget. I was surprised I got a gift from her, for starters so that
may be one reason why I remember it. Another reason I may remember it is
because it was the big snow year that made history in Chicago land..... 1967.
It was an entire set of 'Love's Soft Lemon'. Someone, 'Twiggy' or maybe it was
'Marianne Faithful' advertised that cologne, and it was glorious to me. I think
some times it can found for sale on Amazon but people complain it doesn't have
the same aroma.

A shotgun shot in the air, is enough to keep them away, period!

When you see them again, shoot in the air above their heads. They won't come back.

Surveys not available » Post #2

Mon Nov 28, 2016 20:30 in General Talk

And how do you propose they do that?

ClixSense does not own survey companies.

Advertisers purchase surveys and target countries, etc.

You would need to talk to advertisers in your country and tell them to buy surveys advertising.

Think about adopting a rescued dog for XMAS » Post #3

1. Only adopt if you truly understand it is going to be your FOREVER pet because you are giving it

2. Please don't go to a breeder. Go to your local shelters. If they don't have the pet you are seeking,
tell them and they will locate one for you.

I am not making this up when I say this, for me, there really isn't anything I want but something
to eat. :lol:

Everyone knows, or at least everyone my age knows, Christmas is nothing like it use to be.

When I was a kid, I did get several Christmas presents. Although I did get some toys, I got
things that were needed any way.....a winter coat, warm pajama's, Sunday dress for church,
school or Sunday shoes.

I remember in 3rd grade at school after Christmas, the teacher said 'lets go around the room
and find out what everyone got for Christmas'. It was so exciting to tell everyone what you got.
What I remember about that was kids stating similar to the following (keep in mind, I lived in
Chicago land) :

-Saddle Shoes
-Sunday Shoes
-Barbie Doll and Boots
-Coat and Muffins
-Ear Muffs
-Jaxs and Marbles
-Hollywood Bed
-Transistor Radio
-Skate board
-Roller skates
-Ice skates
-Paper Dolls
-Comic Books

In other words, kids back then, at least where I lived and in my day, we had a nice little amount of
presents to open but they were simple things and they were things that we actually needed and/or
really uses often for years. Those things did cost money of course and people did not make as much
money then but lets face it, a new warm coat for a ten year old kid, was about $10 or $20. Nothing
cost much more than that in the clothing and shoe line. Toys, not much different. You could get a
Mr Potato Head for a couple bucks. Skate boards were very standard and a hot new item but we had
a blast with them and I am sure they were less than $10.

Today, kids want $500 game machines, computers, tablets, games, expensive clothes, etc. :mrgreen:

There's probably a lot of solutions out there that we don't know about because the
powers that be don't want us to know about them.

It is rather amazing tho, what a person can do if they have to.

I think that has a little bit to do with where you live.

For example, I could live the rest of my life without electricity because I have woods on my
property. In fact, I have wood right now that I have offered to several people and no one
has wanted it. I am getting ready to call the Mennonites in my area to see if they want it.
I recently had a few trees chopped down due to fear they would fall across my driveway.
Now I have large chunks of wood that are too heavy for me to handle. In my woods, I have
various fallen trees and plenty of trees that I could of course cut for firewood, cooking, etc.

There are plenty of places in the world that one would most likely not need fire for warmth.
Southern states, Tropics, Warm continents, etc.

People really wouldn't need fire for cooking IF they live in an area in which they have the
access to raw foods or can grow raw foods. Raw veggie diet. Of course people need a little
protein so there would need to be some beans or some such as that on the plate. I don't
think I would want to eat raw beans.

It's kind of like those that don't display their name on the top referrals list.
Some are program owners and they don't want their members of the program they own, to
see the numbers they have referred. I don't know but as an example 'NeoBux' admin might
be a member here. You wouldn't want to display your name because in reality what you are
doing is taking away from your own advertisers.

Same goes for the forums. You might be surprised to know who people really are behind their
'user name'.

There are people that simply prefer their privacy in most all ways they can get it online. They
prefer not to relay much about themselves at all.

There are those people that don't want their information to get out into the search engines and
else where. They don't want their family or friends to know what they are doing.

There are those people that pay tax's to the tax man and focus on getting the best tax breaks
they can and prefer not to display their earnings.

There are people such as myself, that feel displaying their earnings may be intimidating to some
members. That is why I do display my earnings in brief periods but not consistent.

I wish I had a few dollars for every pair of glasses I've had in my life.

I started wearing glasses at about the age of 7 or 8. My sister and I are both nearsighted.
My sister wears her glasses all the time. I never wear my glasses.

I wear my glasses when I drive. I wear them when I am watching something from some
distance, such as TV.

One day, many years ago, an eye doctor said to me 'you only wear your glasses to see, don't you?'
I was surprised and I said 'yes' and we laughed. He knew. He said, when you wear your glasses
things are too bright and clear....and I said 'YES'. It was a point I tried to make all my young life
when my family when reprimand me for not wearing my glasses.

The eye doc told me, your eyes are not going to get better whether you wear your glasses or
not and that it is ok not to wear them.....unless driving of course.

I thought about having the corrective surgery when they came out with that some years ago.
I was afraid to have it done since it was such a new procedure.

Money truly is not everything and in fact, very far from something.

I was watching a program just last night about an older couple. They were not old old.
They weren't retired. I'd say they were probably in their late 50's. She was previously
a vice president of a bank. Her husband was further up the ladder in something else.

They both quit their jobs to work summers at DollyWorld in Tennessee. I think it was of those amusement areas up in the mountains.

Anyway, they work in dinning booth, serving hamburgers and such, for 6 hours per
day in the summer months only.

They live in a nice RV.

Why did they settle for far far far less money?

The reason is very simple. They wanted to live a life.

Before, when they worked in their high paying jobs, they worked many hours, seldom
saw the other, and was not having much time to enjoy life.

They decided to settle for less money and have a life.

So now they live in a very nice RV, only work 6 hours a day in the summer months BUT
they have a lot of fun, enjoy friends at the RV, make enough money to last them through
the winter months, and can of course drive off any time they want to.

Unfortunately, we don't live very long and here only once. I think often people don't really
think about their short time. Even many millionaires work most of their day and I guess
that is what their enjoyment is.....making money.

Money really is far from something.
