Egypt has banned all female circumcision after the death this week of a 12-year-old girl undergoing the widely practised procedure.
Budour Ahmad Shaker died from an overdose of anaesthetic at a private clinic in Minya province in upper Egypt during the $9 (£4.50) operation. Her parents are threatening to sue the doctor involved after he reportedly tried to bribe them to withdraw their complaint.
Female circumcision, which involves the removal of the clitoris, and is also called female genital mutilation, was made illegal in Egypt in 1997. But the painful and sometimes deadly practice was allowed in exceptional cases, and is common in the south despite educational efforts by human rights organisations. President Hosni Mubarak's wife, Suzanne, has been an active campaigner on the issue.

On the seventh day, God said, "Let there be football." And it was good.
Later that day, God said, "Let there be one team to rule the others and set the standard for excellence."
With that, he plucked a star from the heavens and placed it on the helmet of silver and blue.
God said, "Let it be called, 'The Dallas Cowboys' - America's team."
Later that day, God said, "Even Cowboys need a**holes."
So he made their fans.

The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists — two men and one woman. For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.
“We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her.” The first man said.“You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife,”
The agent replies, “Then you’re not the right man for this job."
The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the agent came out with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.” The agent replies, “You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”
Finally, it was the woman’s turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, “You guys didn’t tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair.”

A haggard old lady is riding in a posh hotel's elevator.
On the second floor, a beautiful woman steps on, smelling divine. She arrogantly says to the old lady, "Georgio, $100 an ounce."
On the next floor, an equally beautiful women steps on, smelling lovely as well. She turns to the two other women and says, "Chanel, $150 an ounce."
The old lady's floor is approaching and as the doors open, she looks at the two young ladies, bends over, farts and says, "Broccoli, 49 cents a pound."

A member of the United States Senate, known for his hot temper and acid tongue, exploded one day in mid-session and began to shout, "Half of this Senate is made up of cowards and corrupt politicians!"
All the other Senators demanded that the angry member withdraw his statement, or be removed from the remainder of the session.
After a long pause, the angry member acquiesced. "OK," he said, "I withdraw what I said. Half of this Senate is NOT made up of cowards and corrupt politicians!"

Two doctors opened an office in a small town.
They put up a sign reading: "Dr Smith and Dr Jones, Psychiatry and Proctology."
The town council was not too happy with the sign, so the doctors changed it to: "Hysterias and Posteriors."
This was not acceptable either, so in an effort to satisfy the council, they changed the sign to: "Schizoids and Hemorrhoids."
No go! Next they tried "Catatonics and Colonics" Thumbs down again.
Then came, "Manic-Depressives and Anal-Retentives."
But is was still not good! So they tried:
"Minds and Behinds"
"Analysis and Anal Cysts"
"Nuts and Butts"
"Freaks and Cheeks"
"Loons and Moons"
"Lost Souls and Ass Holes"
Almost at their wits' end, the doctors finally came up with a title they thought might be accepted by the council:
"Dr Smith and Dr Jones, Odds and Ends."

A Sunday school teacher of pre-schoolers was concerned that his students might be a little confused about Jesus Christ. He wanted to make sure they understood that the birth of Jesus occurred a long time ago, that he grew up, etc. So he asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?"Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven!"
Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart!"
Little Johnny, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know! I know! He's in our bathroom!"
The whole class got very quiet, looked at the teacher, and waited for a response. The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. He finally gathered his wits and asked Little Johnny how he knew this.
Little Johnny replied, "Well, every morning my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells: 'Jesus Christ, are you still in there?'"

Colin meets a girl on the street. He says, "Come on, babe, let's go in the alleyway and get it on. I've got fifteen bucks."
She says, "FIFTEEN bucks? You're crazy. For fifteen bucks, I'll let you LOOK at it."
They go into the alleyway, she pulls down her pants, and he gets down on his knees. But he can't see anything, because it's too dark, so he gets out his lighter. He lights his lighter, and he says, "My God, your pubic hair... it's so curly and thick... it's BEAUTIFUL."
She says, "Thank you."
He says, "You mind if I ask you a personal question?"
She says, "Go ahead."
He says, "Can you pee through all that hair?"
She says, "Of course."
He says, "Well, you better start. You're on fire."

Sydney is the most populated city in Australia, situated on the picteuresque New South Wales coast to the south east of the country. Sydney is a lively city, modern, with thousands of events, and is a popular holiday venue with many things to see and do.
Also it has one the most beautiful buildings in the World: The Sydney Opera House. The Opera House lies on a small peninsula close to the impressive Harbour Bridge and is the ideal place to relax, enjoy the scenery and dine alfresco.
Sydney is an ocean city with many marvelous vistas and different perspectives of the harbor and sea. There are so many places to pick from and a few of them have been given below.
The city is so big and there a lot more to see like Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, Circular Quay, Surry Hills, Woolloomooloo, The Rocks, Potts Point…the list is endless. All you have to do is mark these places when you get to Sydney.
Any time is a good time to be in Australia. The city has a comfortable average temperature of 22 degrees throughout the year.
Australia's biggest attraction is its natural beauty.
Its endless sun baked horizons to dense tropical rain forest to chilly southern beaches. Scattered along the coasts, its cities blend a European enthusiasm for art and food with a laid-back love of sport and the outdoors. Imagine, going to see a sophisticated opera in Sydney one night and meet Crocodile Dundee the next night!
Named for the cabbage tree palms that inhabit the area, Cabbage Tree Bay promises a special picnic on a secluded beach away from the crowds - an ideal spot for the amorous couple. Or, take a stroll along the pathway that meanders along the shoreline with views of Manly and the lapping surf. There are plenty of little nooks available for a little impromptu privacy. The best times to come here for the romantic couple would be in the evening when the area becomes more secluded.
There's a lot of good deals on hotels right now too if you are interested to visit Australia.
Check out these beautiful Sydney Hotels. It is the second largest city in Australia and offers some of Australia’s best cuisine for eating and drinking, historic arcades full of boutiques and cafes. Hotels in Sydney are the ideal way to relax and unwind and enjoy one of Australia's most cosmopolitan cities.
The Darling Harbour Hotel in particular is ideally situated for the nearby exhibition center and fine wining, dining and nightlife. Why not just take a relaxing ferry cruise while you're there. These places are home to the liveliest nightclubs and a few minutes walk to get in its centre business districts with endless tour activities during day or night.
North Sydney is on the North side of the Harbour Bridge facing the Opera House and the city of Sydney. A brisk 20 minute walk or a 5 minute train ride, or 5 minutes in a Sydney taxi would take you there.
It is a centre for business with several large companies making their corporate headquarters here, as well as smaller business.
Accommodation ? North Sydney Hotels ?
Check out the prices on North Sydney accommodation cheaper than for North Sydney hotels
Hope to visit there someday.

While the bar patron savored a double martini, an attractive woman sat down next to him.
The bartender served her a glass of orange juice, and the man turned to her and said, "This is a special day. I'm celebrating."
"I'm celebrating, too," she replied, clinking glasses with him.
"What are you celebrating?" he asked.
"For years I've been trying to have a child," she answered, "Today my gynecologist told me I'm pregnant!"
"Congratulations," the man said, lifting his glass.
"As it happens, I'm a chicken farmer, and for years all my hens were infertile. But today they're finally fertile."
"How did it happen?"
"I switched cocks."
"What a coincidence," she said, smiling.

What's the quickest and easiest way to massively increase your web site's profits?
If you said, "Get more visitors or traffic" - you're dead-bang wrong!
By far, the easiest and most cost effective way to dramatically increase your bottom line is simply increasing your follow-up efforts. Perhaps, that may be right.
The startling truth is unless you're constantly and systematically following-up on prospects, you are literally throwing away wads and wads of cash!
The problem: How to continually and automatically follow-up with interested prospects?
The answer: Sequential Email Autoresponders.
In case you've never heard of autoresponders let me briefly explain how they work…
Email autoresponders work like a fax-on-demand system. Maybe you've seen the systems where you call from your fax machine and dial a certain code and you'll get back a document in your fax machine? Well, an email autoresponder works the same way. If you send an email to an autoresponder address you'll get back a prewritten message.
Until just recently, you could only do a one-time auto responder with one message coming back. But now you can set up a whole sequence of autoresponder messages going out on any day you choose.
For example, message #1 might go out immediately, then message #2 goes out 2 days afterwards, next message #3 goes out on day 5, then day 8 comes another message, etc, etc.
And the best part is everything is done automatically for you because it's triggered when a prospect submits their email address. So that means you can simply set up your system once and then it keeps working over and over again like a tireless moneymaking robot making sure no prospect ever slips through the cracks.
With all these advantages, it's really no wonder why a sequential Autoresponder services like Aweber has taken off so quickly. These new systems are absolutely fantastic! But there is one big, glaring problem…
Do You Know What It Takes To Write a Winning Autoresponder Series?
If you don't, you're not the only one. For most people creating a series of autoresponders that convinces people to part with their hard-earned money isn't as simple as it looks. Most people just don't know where to start, how many messages to send, when to send them, how to ask for the order, or any other number of variables that mean the difference between success and failure.
But, now there's good news!
There's a new resource that will help you create your own successful autoresponders - and it's called…
Autoresponder Magic: The Ultimate Collection of Winning Messages To Put Your Web Site on Autopilot!"
"Autoresponder Magic" is a new ebook that contains some of the most successful and persuasive autoresponder messages ever written. It's jam-packed with autoresponder messages that have been proven to work by the top Internet Pros.
So, wouldn't you want to get your hands on that autoresponder series?
Well, that's just one of winning messages in this incredible collection. There's only way any series would be included - and that is it had to work! You won't find a single dud in here.
Each series has been market tested and proven to pull in sales by the top Internet marketers….
Now Which Of These Proven Autoresponder Messages Could You Use To Increase Your Sales?
· Converting trial users to paying customers
· Multi-part training courses that force people to reach for their credit cards
· Persuading hesitant prospects to ecstatic buyers
· Special reports that ring up sales
· And lots more…
Imagine, once you've created your own winning autoresponder - there's practically nothing left to do but sit back and relax. Your autoresponder will work on complete autopilot for you night and day delivering your perfect message and bringing back sales!
Well, realize that this collection of battle-tested autoresponder messages could easily sell for thousands of dollars. In fact if you asked a top direct response copywriter to produce an autoresponder series - you'd be charged in the neighborhood of $500.00 to $2,500.00 (I'm talking for each series here).
In fact, all this for a total investment for this jam-packed ebook is just $17.
There is absolutely no risk, whatsoever on your part.
So if you're going to spend more than $17 to promote your web site this year - you owe it to yourself to get this resource right now!

Most of us like to eat sumptuously and to also eat delicious food.
But there are some of us who are mindful about our calories.. This post is for those who are concerned about their calories and would like to eat in moderation and in a balanced way.
There is this nutrition software from myfitnesspal.com to understand our best daily diet plan. Although it’s a bit complicated, it builds up better controls and instincts regarding choice of foods, not to mention the consciousness one tends to gain from the natural instincts for food. You also get a free calorie counter from myfitnesspal.com. It’s easy to use and will help you know the nutrition value of what you eat and how to improve your daily food choices for better health.
I’ve never been good at using these calorie counters simply because I always eat home-cooked food, rather than fast food or restaurant food. Now that I am a bit older and busier than ever, I don’t get home cooked food as often, a calorie counter is useful in helping me stay on track.
There are so many foods, i.e., thousands and thousands of variants, it is virtually impossible to write down what you consume and count calories. That is why a free service like www.MyFitnessPal.com is so great. I like the points because I am online most of the time and a site like myfitnesspal.com is very convenient.
Want to stay healthy and lose weight?
It is not easy but with MyFitnessPal, you have all the right tools that help you to stay healthy and lose weight for FREE.

Dating Services is one of the most lucrative and exciting business and personal opportunities flooding the internet today. Now what more do you want ?
However, this is an area, I was always apprehensive about.. due to a personal experience. Call it sour grapes - but the actual reason is that I am rather piqued is by the fact of chatting through a computer / webcam.
With webcams, you could literally interact with one another so well.
Well, then what was the problem ?
Unfortunately, I joined a site some time back, only have to my friend on the other side remove her clothes as she claimed that it was rather hot out there. Now this is a common situation. Eventually, I did switch the machine off, although reluctantly !
But is that the reason Dating Sites is incredibly popular with millions around the world.
No... definitely not..
In fact, Dating Services is now a easier, far less expensive alternative to the singles nightclub.
Men and women, now find relationships online from the comfort of their home computer. The online dating industry offers people everywhere the opportunity to meet smart, attractive, and successful singles in a fun and safe environment.

Couldn't help mentioning this..... but The Spice Girls have reformed.
The band announced they were reuniting on Thursday, six years after they finally split, for a world tour in December. They are also releasing a greatest hits album.
Geri Halliwell, 34, insists the reunion is going to be like a "one night stand", and says the girl group want to "celebrate the past" and are not getting back together for good.
Geri, who left the band in 1998, told BANG Showbiz: "It's a bit like a one night stand - it's not forever.
"We want to celebrate the past, enjoy being together and say thank you to our fans
'We are going to have a huge crèche for all the children'
She added: "It feels like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and I've got the golden ticket! It's so exciting. It was like I got divorced and now I have fallen in love with my ex-husband again."
Victoria, who has three sons with soccer ace David Beckham, insisted: "There is a big difference between celebrating the past and getting back together.
We are here to do a tour and that's all.
"Our priority is our families. We are doing this for our kids so they can see what we do. We are going to have a huge crèche for all the children. I am so excited about this tour - I might get to be the cool one in the family
The girl band also said they can't wait to don their famous old outfits again. Mel B revealed: "I will be wearing leopard skin and Geri will have her Union Jack dress on."
Mel C added: "I want to wear my tracksuit again
'It's just a grown-up version'
. I will be going down the market looking for a shell suit. Hats off to our characters."
Victoria insists the band have still retained their old images and their style hasn't changed since they split in 2001.
She said: "We didn't know what we would all be wearing, but we look the same as we used to. We still have the same images and they haven't really changed."
Emma Bunton added: "It's just a grown-up version."
The Spice Girls are set to kick off their 11-date world tour in Los Angeles, followed by shows in Las Vegas, New York City, Buenos Aires, London, Cologne, Madrid, Beijing and Sydney.

The Packing Station has all the things you need under one roof.
Moving is a tedious and strenuous task and best leave it to the experts. But when you can't do that you call The Packing Station
The Packing Station has a massive selection of different packaging materials. It has everything you could possibly think of from the normal boxes and cartons of different shapes and sizes to suit your needs, envelopes and tape to mailroom equipment, storage and removal items and even the packing materials you need such as bubble wrap for the more delicate things and corrugated papers to protect your other precious cargos like artwork and gifts.
You need craft materials for schools? They even have multi-colored crepe papers, gift boxes, rolls of colored Kraft papers.
There are also more advanced packaging materials too such as furniture covers, removal boxes and cushioning that can be used without tapes, and is great for absorbing shock to prevent breakage.
When you receive a badly packaged parcel, it certainly wouldn’t impress you a bit and you certainly would have a bad impression on the seller. Hence, it is a wise decision that companies insist investing in good packaging and service so as to keep their business image. Besides, they have periodic discounts and offer even greater discounts if you buy in bulk.
Nonetheless, before you make any decision, do visit the site… as it is detailed with drop down menus and easy to navigate
I reckon I am going over the top….but this is a sponsored post... and if you can’t blow their trumpet a bit, what is the use of writing for them.
In short, for those who like to shop at the comfort at home and are addicted to online shopping… it is a pleasant feeling receiving that parcel and finding that the goods are intact due to good packaging

Little Johnny is taking a shower with his mother and says.... Mommy, what are those things on your chest?
Unsure of how to reply, she tells Johnny to ask his dad at breakfast tomorrow, quite certain the matter would be forgotten. Johnny didn’t forget. The following morning he asked his father the same question. His father, always quick with the answers, says.....Why Johnny, those are balloons. When your mommy dies, we can blow them up and she’ll float to heaven.....
Johnny thinks that’s neat and asks no more questions. A few weeks later, Johnny’s dad comes home from work a few hours early. Johnny runs out of the house crying hysterically, Daddy! Daddy! Mommy’s dying....
His father says, Calm down, son! Why do you think Mommy’s dying?...
Uncle Harry is blowing up Mommy’s balloons and she’s screaming....Oh God, I’m coming!

Interested in a get paid to blog site ?
Smorty is a blog advertising service connecting advertisers with bloggers, ie., where both advertisers and bloggers benefit by exchanging services with each other. It is a new get paid for blogging site that has got a lot of attention and they are growing very fast.
It is easy to register for a free account and submit your blog for approval. Normally it takes maximum around 2 to 3 days for approval of a new blog. Generally, the minimum of requirement words to write a review for them is around 150 words. Once you take on a post, you have only 3 days to complete it and it takes 5 days to get it approved…
And Smorty does not stop here they have a huge package for bloggers. As bloggers get a chance to provide that quality content to advertiser and get paid for blogging and bloggers are paid on a weekly basis. More importantly the content presented is unique and never matches with each other. You can choose content you are impressed with and the number of blogs to advertise
The site has real growth potential and hope we are not wrong. So go and check the site out for yourself and reckon that if you are a blogger, who blogs for dough, you certainly would be pleased with what they have to offer.
Now on an different perspective…..why is it that only some bloggers who blog for money are making money and others are not?
The answer is simple, majority of the bloggers are still using the traditional methods. The main defect of pay per click program is that all users may not click your ads. Besides, these programs have a basic pay out limit like $50 to $100 and as a result, the small publishers would have to wait for a longer time to get paid. Unlike in Smorty, your job is to write a review or a post about the task and publish it on your blog.
Smorty will pay you instantly once your task has been approved. Payment is through Pay Pal. If you have a good page rank and are regular in submitting posts/ tasks you will get a good Smorty score. By getting good Smorty Score you will get more tasks with high Payouts.
That’s all there’s to it…Curious……give it a shot…..and get paid weekly………. Join Smorty

It’s funny whenever a holiday is planned, most people just take things into considerations as they are glad to get away as quick as possible and as far as possible. It is only when they get to the place of destination they regret on their not planning their vacation...infact.. some of them have the misfortune to arrive at this decision while traveling itself…..
Basically, when we plan for a holiday or a getaway, there are many things we need to plan and take into consideration…..from booking a flight, hotels, renting a car and many other associated hassles that include but are not limited to Hotel Discounts, Hotels, Motels, Resorts and the rest of the thingamajigs !
It is said that a vacation really becomes your home away from home. It’s never as comfortable as the real thing, but a great place to stay always makes your trip definitely more enjoyable. Whatever may be your choices, all you want is a stress free and fun holiday
It is until you experience the speed breaker, you contemplate that you should have planned better. Don’t wait until then…. Just check out Hotel Reservations.
Hotel Reservations is one of the so called “one stop centers” for travelers who would like to make online reservation bookings for their next travel vacation worldwide. Even better you can search different types of accommodations be it hotels, hotel discounts, motels or vacation resorts....
You know the price you have to pay for your trip and with over 1000 destinations to choose from, you definitely are not short of choices… That’s about it…. this is becoming more like an advertisement….
In short, there is no harm in trying Hotel Reservations out… you are not going to lose sleep, that’s for sure…
If you are satisfied, pass the information on Hotel Reservations out to our friends..
Now for some useful tips for you while traveling..
Before embarking on a trip, buy a travel book with maps and some useful phrases that you can use with the locals. Carry with you a credit card, identification papers and enough money to get around the city in case you get lost. It is also a good idea to ask your hotel for a business card which you can show to locals when you ask for directions. Also to make travel stress free, make sure that your flights and hotel accommodations are booked and confirmed. This will put you at ease knowing that delays are unlikely and there will be no surprises at the hotel desk. When traveling in Europe, it is cheaper to buy individual rail passes if you are only going to one or two countries, instead of buying a Eurail pass that covers eighteen. They have a better deal and can give you much more for a better price....
Closing line... If you actually look like your passport photo, you aren't well enough to travel... Sir Vivian Fuchs

God created woman, and she had 3 breasts.
He said to the woman, "Is there anything on you that you'd like to change?"
She said, "Yes. Could you get rid of this middle breast?"
God snapped his fingers and it was done.
She exclaimed, holding the third breast in her hand, "What am I going to do with this useless boob?"
And God created man.
Why did God give men penises?
So we'd have at least one way to shut a woman up.
Why are hurricanes normally named after women?
When they come they're wild and wet, but when they go they take your house and car with them.

I was searching for travel locations and hoping to locate some travel vacation packages, when I accidentally happened to land on Easy to Book . It is a site that caters to the travel deals over Europe…
There are two great things about traveling to Europe. One thing is that all the countries are so well connected that you never get the feeling of having moved over from one country to another unless you are told so by somebody. Another thing is that you do not realize the kind of superb travel deals that you often miss while traveling to these places.
So it is worth recommending Easy to Book to those who have plans to travel to Europe and specifically to Amsterdam, Barcelona or Rome.
Traveling can be such a pain. Even worse traveling can be a nightmare when you don’t know where to make hotel reservations and other hassles… Luxurious hotels, cheap hotels or airport hotels, whatever you're looking for, it's easy to book here. You can easily get the best available deal for your time away, you can download a map with your hotel pinpointed on it for easy access, and there are special prices and discounts to be found, too. Rates can be calculated in any currency required.
The site is easy to use with information well researched and info available on the site. So get ready…and head to Easy to Book...

The following is a paid review..........
BarterBee.com Is A Free Way to Get Movies, Music, and Games
In other words, BarterBee, is an online DVD trading site. The site allows you to trade DVD movies, music CDs and games with other online participants. It claims that it is the "cheapest way to get movies, music, and games and that you can purchase any of the items on their site for only a dollar (USD). They state that they're cheaper than Netflix, iTunes, Blockbuster and eBay. BarterBee.com also allows you to legally trade-in your existing CD's, DVD's, and Games for new and more interesting ones. Best of all, you can keep the item as long as you would like. It's that easy!
Basically, members join for free and receive a free CD, DVD or video game of their choice to try out the site. Members list items for a point value without a fee or commission. The site automatically creates the listing that includes free photos, content and reviews. When another member acquires the item, the points are given to the listing member. Those points can be used to get new items on the site, again without any transaction fees. That's all there's to it.......
BarterBee is very similar to the concepts and PeerFlix or Netflix but also allows for trading of CDs and Video games in addition to DVDs. People get to set the value of the products ultimately getting around the system forced approach.
Furthermore, if you sign up for free now, you get a free DVD with free shipping. Recently, BarterBee.com has released a personal widget that allows members to take their inventory with them and post the widget on their own personal blog, site, or social site profile page.
Not only that, you can also trade cd video games and cds for $1.00.As you can imagine, this is significantly cheaper than NetFlix and PeerFlix seeing that BarterBee.com caps your monthly max at $5.00 out of your pocket. Any trades over your 5th are on the house.
In short, BarterBee.com - The Free Way to Get Movies, Music, and Games .....

An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut.
The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car. He says, "Sir, have ya been drinkin'?"
"Just water," says the priest.
The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"
The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"
Posted by Shankar Pandiath at 7:34 PM
Drunk Ole Mulvihill (From the Northern Irish Clan) staggers into a Catholic Church, enters a confessional box, sits down but says nothing.
The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but Ole just sits there.
Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.
The drunk mumbles, "ain't no use knockin.... there's no toilet paper on this side either."

I had been hearing about the Bid4prizes site lately, so I decided it was time to drop by and find out first hand what it was about. Surprisingly….it turned out be a lot more fun searching at all the cool prizes that covered free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes apart from others and it definitely was more than quite interesting
The concept is similar to an auction site or like eBay, but it is actually better because it is the lowest unique bidder that will win the auction. At Ebay if you bid on something, it is the highest bid that wins and then the winner pays the shipping and whatever other associated costs that the person demands, and then you're left to hope that what you get is in the condition the seller said it was.
It is just the opposite with Bid4prizes. Here you bid as low and as uniquely as you can in order to win the prize you want. The concept is user-friendy and it is a text based reverse-auction game. The prizes include free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes . Prizes range from, Apple I-Phone’s, HDTV’s, Designer Bags, SCION XB’s to Cash Prizes and there is a new winner everyday.
To explain the process in detail.. The trick and the most difficult part to make your bid the "Unique" one basically means that your bid amount has to be the lowest, ie., that no one else has bid for it yet. A bid becomes duplicate, when someone other than you bids the exact amount.. Now as there are two bids for the same amount they cancel each other and the new bid becomes the next lowest unique bid and it goes on until the auction ends. So if you bid 20 cents for the iPhone and your bid happens to be unique... then you take home an iPhone.
Although I still am coming to terms with the fundamentals, but am yet to give up hope on the plasma TV, cell phones and free gifts, sweepstake and cash prizes . One may not win, but still it leaves you with a big hope. They even have a car…Basically, if you are an eBay freak, then you will like this as well.. absolutely easy to sign up and become a member as well!
So, what are you waiting for, just go to Bid4prizes.com and bid for the item you want..

Are Vacation Villas Replacing Large, Commercialized Hotels as a New Vacation Trend ?
Growing Ecotourism Industry In Hawaii Protects Environmental Assets While Increasing Profits
Now let's Aloha .......
Wednesday, May 23, 2007
I was searching for travel locations and hoping to locate some travel vacation packages, when I accidentally happened to land on the page regarding information on trips to Hawai'i.. Going through the info, it became aware why Hawaii is the United States' top holiday destination... ROMANCE! But weddings apart, any reason to getaway, be it birthdays or anniversaries, they all are just excellent reasons to celebrate romance in the Islands of Aloha.
Another interesting factor was the importance given to Ecotourism. It not only supports the well being of local communities, but the commercial entities have a positive influence on the environment as they promote a tourism industry that is environmentally and culturally sensitive while increasing profits. More details on Growing Ecotourism Industry In Hawaii is available here…..
The availability of vacation accommodations through online resources such as HawaiianBeachRentals.com affords tourists the opportunity to plan a customized, environmentally-friendly vacation. A savvy traveler seeking information about ecotourism-based excursions to Maui and Kauai can visit HawaiianBeachRentals.com for additional details. Take advantage of technology to plan the most unique, socially-conscious trip.
Another interesting factor are the customised villas...
Villas are the new vacation trend and are quickly replacing larger, more commercialized hotels as the choice place to stay for many savvy travelers. Such accommodations are perfect for those people seeking a truly relaxing, tropical vacation that mot only provides the enjoyment, privacy and comfort of a vacation home over the impersonal environment of a traditional hotel. An out-of-the-way oasis is just a click away when you check out a site like hawaiianbeachrentals.com that specializes in Hawaii vacations. Whether you are looking for romance, relaxation, swimming, surfing or other activities, staying at a Hawaii vacation villa can enable you to be right in the center of the place you want to be, rather than several miles away at a hotel.
For more details, visit Hawaii vacation villa ....
And for more info on the 528 Hawaii vacation rentals and 1232 Hawaii condos ....... PLEASE CLICK HERE
Better still..... if you need some information on a made-to-order vacation, visit here
Now to get down to some trivialities.......
Most visitors to Hawaii marvel at the region’s amazing sights through a car window, on a bus tour or on a hike.
But nothing compares to the thrill of taking in the sights from the back of a motorcycle.
Hawaii’s spectacularly varied environment makes for memorable riding experiences. The roads traversing each island lead from tropical rainforests to desert landscapes and back. The beauty about riding on this island is that in a couple hours you can go from sea level to 4,000 feet…. But please note that renting a motorcycle in Hawaii requires a valid motorcycle license or a motorcycle licensing endorsement on an automobile driver license. The legally permitted minimum age depends on the state where the license is issued, however, some motorcycle rental companies enforce a minimum age of 21, or even 23, in accordance with their insurance coverage. Passengers must be at least 7 years old. To the pleasure of some riders, Hawaii does not require helmets. Rentals also require a credit card deposit authorization ranging anywhere from $350 to $2,500. Even if it’s just for a few hours, a tour by motorcycle in Hawaii is the stuff that makes memories. It’s truly the ultimate vantage point to soak in the surrounding beauty. Also, MAKE NOTE THAT some of the most popular tourist destinations aren’t necessarily the most ideal for motorcycle outings.
Hawaii is also a year-round destination for golf, and this is something that sets it apart from many other holiday destinations.
Generally, the professional golf season starts with four events in Hawaii; each year, six professional tourneys are staged in the islands. Hawaii is also home to 80 championship-caliber courses. Of these, Golf Magazine places eight on its top 25 domestic courses; no other state has more than two resorts on the list.
Apart from Golf, one must check out the sailing experience on the Hahalua Lele.
It is unique for two reasons: the canoe and the captain. A basic outing with Cho at the helm lasts about two-and-a-half hours and costs $95 per person. Besides the coastal cruise, you’ll stop for snorkeling and, during the winter months, whale watching. Half-day and full-day cruises are available, too.
Another interesting fact is that because of the new craze in Hula, in Japan, the Japanese hula fanatics are visiting Hawaii in waves, pun intended.
They are seeking to learn from the original source, and they are coming to events year-round, ranging from the many festivals and as well as various hula retreats and individual workshops. It is believed that there are over 300,000 hula students in Japan, now that is quite a lot a hula circles…
However as per market statistics, Hawaii’s tourism industry is currently facing a slump, with overall January arrivals down nearly 5 percent and the lucrative Japanese market down by around 12 percent.
But, does it make a difference….not the lease, although the decline could be due to the fact of Hawaii’s strict new smoking ban, which went into effect in November…. and for Japanese smoking for whom smoking is an essential habit …. [No offense meant….but, boy....do they smoke !]
Now apparently the Dalai Lama was scheduled to visit Maui on April 24 and 25.
It's the third time this dude has landed there. Obviously, he likes the place... However, although it’s Maui and these guys enjoy a certain level of "enlightenment", be it spiritual or sexual they definitely are not quite religious. The real problem is that most of these guys don’t know a damn thing about the Dalai Lama except that he has a buzz cut, wears a lot of robes and is kind of adorable. Some of them even feel that he is one cool guy but the majority either is confused about him or they completely ignore the question hoping that they don’t appear thick by going on record and answer the question. For instance, very few know that he likes to golf... and that he is extraordinarily funny even during prayer sessions….
But he certainly enjoyed himself… and if he could.... so can you…
So instead of going on and on, visiting Hawai’i is definitely worth giving a shot, a swing and a swig…
That’s about it…. get your travel bags and envision you and your loved one on a romantic Hawaiian Holiday.
Aloha……and have fun…

Colin meets a girl on the street. He says, "Come on, babe, let's go in the alleyway and get it on. I've got fifteen bucks."
She says, "FIFTEEN bucks? You're crazy. For fifteen bucks, I'll let you LOOK at it."
They go into the alleyway, she pulls down her pants, and he gets down on his knees. But he can't see anything, because it's too dark, so he gets out his lighter. He lights his lighter, and he says, "OMG, your pu*ic hair... it's so curly and thick... it's BEAUTIFUL."
She says, "Thank you."
He says, "You mind if I ask you a personal question?"
She says, "Go ahead."
He says, "Can you pee through all that hair?"
She says, "Of course."
He says, "Well, you better start. You're on fire."

In Michigan, an advertisement offers this come-on to those 60 and older...
Come learn from the IRA Technician" at a seminar that more than 10,000 seniors have attended. Top sirloin steak will be served — along with tips on "how to guarantee your IRA will never run out, regardless of market fluctuations."
Just don't bring your financial adviser. Agents and brokers are not invited, the ad says.
As the first of 79 million baby boomers turn 60 this year, free-this and free-that financial seminars are thriving. Community centers and hotels have become a backdrop for what regulators see as aggressive sales pitches geared to seniors. (Chart: What to know about senior financial adviser designations)
While people 60 and older make up 15% of the U.S. population, they account for about 30% of fraud victims, estimates Consumer Action, a consumer-advocacy group.
As this gargantuan generation of boomers starts to retire, "You're going to see more of these seminars and more of these sales pitches," says James Nelson, assistant secretary of state in Mississippi. "Wherever retirees are congregated, you're going to have these people preying on them."
Older people have long been a lucrative market for the financial-services industry because of the assets they've accumulated. But the sheer number of baby boomers approaching retirement and seeking a place to park their assets is causing a frenzy of aggressive sales tactics.
Boomers have more than $8.5 trillion in investable assets. Over the next 40 years, they stand to inherit at least $7 trillion from their parents, research firm Cerulli Associates estimates
As baby boomers swell the retiree population, regulators worry not just about estate-planning seminars for seniors but also about sales of promissory notes, unregistered securities and lottery scams.
"It's the topic of the next few decades: senior investments and senior fraud," says Patricia Struck, president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, or NASAA.
"There are marketing seminars that are being held nightly and in every city," says Bryan Lantagne of the Massachusetts Securities Division. "They get you to come in and do a financial plan. Their goal is to put you in one of these products."
Senior estate-planning seminars aren't new. But they're drawing more regulatory scrutiny because they're ramping up in areas with large elderly populations. Typically, the people who attend them need advice about leaving assets to their children, managing income or minimizing taxes in retirement.
Beverly Buhs, 81, of Millbrae, Calif., attended one of these financial seminars with her husband, Art, in 1997. They bought a living trust on the spot, she says. They were told it would let them avoid probate court, the sometimes expensive process by which your assets are allocated after you die.
They also bought an equity-index annuity. That's a high-cost insurance product with returns based partly on the stock market.
After her husband died, Buhs found the trust didn't fully protect their assets from probate. And she couldn't access the money in the annuity without paying big penalties. Her complaints are part of a class-action lawsuit against the financial agents and companies involved in the seminar.
A 'major problem'
These seminars are a "major problem" in Texas, where many boomers retire, says Denise Voigt Crawford, the state securities commissioner.
North Dakota Securities Commissioner Karen Tyler calls these seminars a bait-and-switch tactic. The free seminar is the bait; the switch comes when the agents urge investors to liquidate the portfolio and put the money into other products, Tyler says.
Dan Danbom of the Society of Certified Senior Advisors — which helps train insurance agents, brokers and others to conduct senior seminars — says there's nothing "inherently dishonest about seminars, any more than there's anything inherently dishonest about advertising or direct mail."
And some agents argue that their financial seminars fill seniors' very real need for education. Theresa Bischoff, an insurance agent in Palatine, Ill., says she holds seminars because, "Baby boomers are starving for information on retirement and estate planning."
But regulators worry that seminars often serve as tools for unscrupulous salespeople. NASAA issued an alert in December cautioning investors that such seminars were sometimes being used by "bogus" senior specialists. The specialists may take only a few courses to earn their titles, then use these designations to create a "false level of comfort" about their expertise, according to NASAA.
In a typical scenario, financial agents will find out, at the seminar and in follow-up meetings, what assets seniors have, NASAA says. Then they'll recommend these assets be liquidated and put into equity-index or variable annuities. (State regulators say these recommendations could be considered investment advice, and anyone not registered as an investment adviser could face enforcement action.)
Variable and equity-index annuities are complex insurance products whose returns vary with market performance. Variable annuities' returns are tied to the stock market. Equity-index annuities' returns fluctuate with the market but also provide a minimum guarantee.
Both can be appropriate for people who want tax-advantaged savings or an income stream in retirement. But they're generally ill-suited for people in their 60s, 70s or 80s who'll need access to their money over the next decade. These costly products usually have stiff penalties for withdrawing money before the end of a surrender period that can last up to 15 years.
Louise Renne, a former San Francisco city attorney, says financial seminars often "are really fronts for (insurance) agents who want to sell annuities to seniors." Renne represents Buhs and others in three lawsuits against financial pros who conducted the seminars and companies that supplied the products.
Michael DeGeorge, general counsel for the National Association for Variable Annuities, says, "The vast majority of annuity recommendations are done appropriately."
Whether scams involve inappropriate product sales or telemarketing fraud, they can be emotionally and financially devastating for victims of all ages.
Seniors, though, are particularly hard hit. Scams can wipe out an entire lifetime of savings. Unlike younger investors, seniors have few or no working years to recapture their losses.
The emotional pain of being scammed can also be magnified for seniors who keep silent about losing money. Many of them don't report suspected fraud out of shame and "fear that if the family realizes they've been ripped off, they'll be placed in an institution," seen as unfit to manage their finances and lives, says Jenefer Duane, chief executive of the Elder Financial Protection Network.
Thus, complaints about senior financial fraud are probably lower than they should be, Duane says. In 2005, consumers 50 and older filed 151,000 fraud and identity-theft-related complaints with the Federal Trade Commission. That total represented nearly one-third of total fraud and one-fifth of all identity-theft complaints among those who reported their age.
Online and telemarketing scams rank among the top complaints filed by older consumers.
Seniors who've been scammed often have to work longer than they'd planned — and harder. Take Neal Dukes, 71, of Grand Ledge, Mich. Dukes lost $250,000 a few years ago after a financial adviser persuaded him and 17 other people, mostly seniors, to put money into what the adviser said were high-interest-earning annuities.
The adviser, Daniel Neuenschwander, pleaded guilty, admitting he didn't invest the money in annuities but instead lost much of it in the commodities market or used it to support his family.
A Michigan circuit judge sentenced Neuenschwander in 2002 to up to 10 years in prison and ordered him to pay $2.2 million back to the seniors.
"It's tragic. Mr. Neuenschwander is very remorseful," says John Maurer, Neuenschwander's attorney.
Dukes says he hasn't gotten a dime back and isn't hopeful he will. He's been working eight to 10 hours a few days a week at his insecticide-spraying business to earn money.
'No golden years left'
"When you're 71 years old, you should be able to enjoy your life and your golden years," Dukes says. "But when you've been taken like this, there are no golden years left."
Financial recovery in senior scams is rare but not hopeless. Shlimoon Youkhana, 80, was one of the lucky ones. He got his money back after what had seemed to be a promising investment turned sour, draining his money with it.
A few years ago, he and his children invested $15,000 in the stock of a company that was supposed to file for an initial public offering. But the company never gave them their stock certificates. It eventually merged with another entity and changed its name.
Youkhana, of Rosemont, Ill., spent more than two years and hundreds of hours researching the company and documenting his experience, reporting his findings along the way to the Illinois Securities Department. The department did its own investigation and recovered investors' money.
Now, Youkhana offers to help other seniors in his community do research before they invest. "I'm not a Don Quixote or anything," he says. He just doesn't want others to be victims, he says.
The easiest way to avoid scams? Beware of any opportunity that sounds too good to be true. Seniors who are pressured to make a financial decision on the spot should run — not walk — away.
Robert Inman, 69, was wary about the living trust and annuity being pitched during a December free-lunch seminar he attended in Jackson, Mich.
He didn't feel the presenters adequately answered his questions — such as, what happens if the company that created the trust goes under? And he was bothered that they wanted people to sign up on the spot.
Also, a salesman called him multiple times after the seminar, stopping only after being invited to the house. "We thought that maybe this is the way to get rid of him," Inman says.
He consulted an attorney and decided to forgo the products. Inman's advice to seniors? "Don't jump into anything hastily. Take some time to do some checking."
Consumer groups act
Consumer groups are also stepping up efforts to alert seniors to potential scams. In Michigan, AARP, the advocacy group for those 50 and over, has found a way to counter "free lunch" seminars: It holds its own "free lunch" seminars.
No products are sold at the sessions. Still, "They're wildly popular," AARP's Sally Hurme says of the educational seminars, which feature such names as "What You Should Know About Living Trusts" and "How to Tell the Difference Between An Estate Plan and a Sales Pitch."
Says Anita Salustro, who leads the seminars for AARP in Michigan: "People want some consumer protection. They've been to these free lunches and want some balanced information from someone who's not selling a product."
Shlimoon Youkhana was able to get back $15,000 he and his children lost in a bad investment.

bakery owner hires a young sexy blonde who liked to wear very short sexy skirts and thong panties, not to mention braless tops that showed of her big boobs.
One day a young man comes into the store, glances at the sexy girl and glances at the loaves of bread behind the counter. Noticing the sexy girl and the length of her skirt (or lack thereof) and the location of the raisin bread - on the very top shelf - he politely says to the hottie, "I'd like some raisin bread, please."
She climbs up a ladder to reach the raisin bread, providing the young man with an excellent view of the thongs and the tits, just as he surmised she would. When the blonde comes down the ladder, he says he really should get two loaves as he is having company for dinner.
As the sexy woman retrieves the second loaf of bread, one of the other male customers notices what is going on. Thinking quickly, he orders a loaf of raisin bread so he can continue to enjoy the view. With each trip up the ladder, the sexy blonde seems to catch the eye of another male customer. Pretty soon, each male customer is asking for raisin bread just to watch the young sexy woman climb up and down.
After many trips, the blonde is tired, irritated and thinking she is really going to have to try the raisin bread herself. Once again she is up the ladder retrieving a loaf of raisin bread for another male customer. She stops and fumes, glaring at the men below. She notices an elderly man standing among the crowd of males looking up at her who hasn't placed an order yet.
Thinking to save herself another trip up and down the ladder, she yells at the elderly man, "Is yours raisin, too?" "No," croaked the old man, "but it's a quiverin'..."
