Any suggestions from U.S.A. members ? » Post #2

Wed Nov 30, 2016 15:29 in General Talk

It depends on what you like to watch.

Here is my suggestions:

1. Netflix Streaming : This is about $10 a month and you have access to older streaming movies, some new streaming movies, some old tv series, some tv series that stay only one or two seasons behind such as Walking Dead, Bates Motel, etc. You also have access to Netflix original movies and Netflix original series. There is also documentaries, etc.

2. Amazon Prime : Now they have a monthly option. However, paying by the year is the best way to go because it is cheaper in the long run, plus you don't have to be concerned with a monthly payment. Amazon has streaming of movies and tv shoes, etc. Amazon also has their own original Amazon movies/series. This cost is about $100 a year. You'll have to look see as I pay by the year and I think they have gone up a tad since my last payment. This is also good if you order products through Amazon because you get free shipping on Amazon prime products. However, if you don't do much shopping there and you need to choose one or the other Netflix or Amazon, choose Netflix.

3. Android Box with Kodi : If you like movies and getting the most recent movies, with a box that has Kodi, you can stream them for free. Also, Kodi has hundreds of channels. There are sports channels, fox, and most popular channels. These box's vary greatly in price. Do your research. Make sure you are reading TRUE REAL REVIEWS. I have 2 Kodi box's.....I call them Kodi box's but they are actually called Android box's. One I paid only $30 for and the other I paid about $50 for it. They are buggy at times but more than worth the cost. In one days watch you've made your money back, so to speak. There is no fees, other than just buying the box.

4. Smart TV or Roku Box: With a Roku box, you have access to add a lot of free channels but the free channels are one's that you probably have not heard of. With Roku, even if you don't have a Smart TV, you can watch Netflix, Amazon, and lots of others.....of course, you do still have to pay for Netflix, etc. When I first started with Roku, I think the box was about $29 and they had few channels. Now they have a lot more and probably over a hundred channels. You get free upgrades. Go to the Roku website, if you are not familiar with it.

5. You can get the Network Channels for free. I guess you probably know that. You'll need the box and you can buy them at Walmart as well as online. There are no fees, just need the box. With the box, you'll get ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and possibly other local stations in your nearby area....such as university channel.

I was at one time paying a lot for tv and the more I researched my options, I really cut back a lot
and I do plan to drop my DISH at some point. You can also optionally pay Netflix for dvd's but you'd
save money by having a KODI box.

I also have an APPLE Box and an RCA Box. I used them a long time ago but don't much at all any more.

So, there is really a wide variety of options and you can save a lot of money.

I actually use the following :

DISH - I cut way back and my monthly bill is now under $57 per month
Netflix - I now only do their streaming (I have did their dvd's in the past) $10 per month
Amazon - I pay yearly but probably averages out to about $10 per month
KODI - $0
Roku - $0 - I have Smart tv's so I don't use the Roku box often but there is a lot of free channels that can be added

So my suggestion to you if your credit is not up to par and you can't go with Amazon and
you can't go with Netflix but you have WIFI, buy a KODI box and buy a box at Walmart
that will allow you to still get your network channels. This way, you'll be out some pocket
money for the box's but you won't have a monthly payment at all.

Well there is a very cool website online that is recognized by the national geographic.

It cost money for the DNA kit. They send it to you, you swab your cheek and send it back.

You can then log in and you can see anyone else that is in your DNA string, so to speak.

The only problem with that right now is, not everyone in the world is a member. Some
day I suspect, if not that website, another, will have everyone in a DNA database so that
everyone can match up to their ancestors.

I think it gets very confusing after going back several generations because so many things
change. Take me for example. I am adopted. However I know who my parents are but
IF someone was to look up my birth certificate, the original is locked, even to me, and all
they would get is my grandparents names as my parents. So there is the adoption factor.
Also, people get married and divorced and remarried, and some marry and divorce multiple top that off, they have children often from more than one marriage. People tend
to follow the paternal side since that is the name that carries onward but just as much is to
be taken into the history on the maternal side.

I agree, any way you look at it, we are all related.

Hello cousins! :mrgreen:

To stop smoking you need to take the patch and you need to stay away from people that smoke.

The best way to quit, is truly to just do it, cold turkey but with the help of the patch.

Most people won't quit when they try and reduce their intake. For example I remember many
times in the past telling myself, I will only smoke outside, I will not smoke when driving, I will
not smoke while eating......I really loved to smoke while I ate.

I was only fooling myself. So don't fool yourself. Realize what an awful death lung cancer is.
I am telling you, it is a horrible way to die.

Ya, we've got to eradicate the puppy mills. It is extremely important NOT to buy from breeders
and NOT to buy from pet shops and NOT to buy from pet regards to purchasing animals...
don't do it!

Also, be very careful about purchasing an animal online!

Go to your local animal shelters.

My little dog is a Maltese and he did come by way of a breeder but I did not purchase from a
breeder. I found two ads online by the same woman, that had a male maltese for sale that was
about six months old. It just so happen, the woman lives in my area only about 15 miles away
from me. So I called and spoke to her. She told me all about Bo and she wanted $450 dollars
for him. I set up time and went to her house. I can hear Bo barking as I knocked on the door. :lol:

The woman had bought Bo from a breeder and paid $450 for him. Bo was 6 months old and weighed
4.5 pounds. I knew I wanted him immediately. She said she bought Bo and really thought Bo
was sweet but they did not have time for him. She accepted $400 and I had her husband make
me a receipt (VERY IMPORTANT-GET A RECEIPT). I had all the information and checked out every
thing for facts BEFORE I went to buy him.

Bo did not seem the least bit disappointed, sad, or anything when I swooped him up. He was and
is a very happy dog. He is now three years old and weighs just under 7 pounds. He is so much
fun and keeps me smiling every day.

Clixsense should stop changing sponsors » Post #9

Well you know, ClixSense can be a little time consuming IF you are really interested in
making as much money here as you can. A member could easily spend the entire day
and night here, viewing ads, surveys, tasks, etc. The good part about it is, if you do
need some extra money, it is here if you are willing to work for it.

But yeah, I think a big part of it is, people have work and families offline to attend to.
You know, if you work 8 or more hours a day, have family, household to care for, you
don't really have much time to do much online other than send emails to your mom
or some such as that.

I truly believe that is the largest issue people have, time.

Sure there are lazy people but I don't think that is it. When you work a regular offline
job, you don't have much time for stuff online. Also, if you are rather young and work
offline, your weekends or days off are probably spent going to parties, offline social,
taking the kids to the pool, ballgames, etc, etc, etc.

The people that do well in this industry is usually the desperate people. I mean that in
a good way. They have a certain 'desperation' aspect to their personality. That might
be they are desperate to make money because they are out of a job offline. It could be
they are desperate to make money online because they don't want to work offline. It
could be they are college kids that are desperate for spending money.

That is why I say when you are promoting to people out there, you really need to focus
your targeting to what people really want, not just anyone and everyone that comes along.
Otherwise, people just come along and join and often don't do anything or check it out
enough to click on a few ads for a day or two.

So forget the so called 'numbers game' because that is bull. You have to think about
YOU and why YOU work this site. Then relate that information to like minded people
by targeting those that are like you.

Well, after looking at the town, I do come more to realize how my name, may have come to be.
Looks like a lovely place but appears they had a bad flood in 2007.

There is even a bed n breakfast that I guess is there or nearby and it's called the Underhill House bed and breakfast....and get's on 'Hill' road!

Fun and interesting stuff when you find your roots.

My step-father comes from round there.

Maybe we are cousins! Long lost cousins! :o

I have known for some time that at least part of me descended from the English.
It's interesting to have some confirmation of a location.

I will google it.

So what may be the reason for my recent referrals and active clickers going inactive?

What is your reason for going inactive in programs you have joined in which you are no longer active?

Usually, if a member is inactive, the member was never active to begin with.
If you look through each of your referrals, you may find that to be true.

However, there is a lot of reasons why someone may have been active and is no longer.
You would really need to ask that person to know for sure.

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. :?

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.
