Nothing like a woman scorned

If you have any doubts, check this out........ especially those going through bad relationships....

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes,crates, and suitcases.

On the second day she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table. candle light,put on some soft background music and feasted on a lb of shrimp,a jar of caviar,and a bottle of chardonnay.

when she had finished,she went into each and every room and deposited a few half eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the
curtain rods.

She cleaned up the kitchen and left.....

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.

Then slowly the house began to smell.....

They tried everything,cleaning,mopping,and airing the place out.

vents were checked for dead rodents and the carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung everywhere.

Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters,during which they had to move out for a few days.

Nothing worked....

People stopped coming over to visit....

Repair men refused to work in the house....

The maid quit....

Finally they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move....

A month later,even though they cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.

Word got out,and eventually the local realitors refused to take their calls.

Finally they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

The x wife called her x husband, and asked how things were going.

He told her the saga of the rotting house...

She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for
getting the house back

Knowing his wife had no idea how bad the smell was,he agreed on a price that was about 1/10 what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.

She agreed,and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paper work.

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smilimg as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the curtain rods.............................

So be careful, there is nothing like a woman scorned.....

5 Ways to Keep Visitors Coming Back

A lot of successful websites depend on returning visitors to account for a major part of their traffic. Returning visitors are easier to convert into paying customers because the more often they return to a site, the more trust they have in that site. The credibility issue just melts away. Hence, keep your visitors coming back to your site with the following methods:

1) Start a forum, chatroom or shoutbox

When you start a forum, chatroom or shoutbox, you are providing your visitors a place to voice their opinions and interact with their peers -- all of them are visitors of your site. As conversations build up, a sense of community will also follow and your visitors will come back to your site almost religiously every day.

2) Start a web log (blog)

Keep an online journal, or more commonly known as a blog, on your site and keep it updated with latest news about yourself. Human beings are curious creatures and they will keep their eyes glued to the monitor if you post fresh news frequently. You will also build up your credibility as you are proving to them that there is also a real life person behind the website.

3) Carry out polls or surveys

Polls and surveys are other forms of interaction that you should definitely consider adding to your site. They provide a quick way for visitors to voice their opinions and to get involved in your website. Be sure to publish polls or surveys that are strongly relevant to the target market of your website to keep them interested to find out about the results.

4) Hold puzzles, quizzes and games

Just imagine how many office workers procrastinate at work every day, and you will be able to gauge how many people will keep visiting your site if you provide a very interesting or addicting way of entertainment. You can also hold competitions to award the high score winner to keep people trying continuously to earn the prize.

5) Update frequently with fresh content

Update your site frequently with fresh content so that every time your visitors come back, they will have something to read on your site. This is the most widely known and most effective method of attracting returning visitors, but this is also the least carried out one because of the laziness of webmasters. No one will want to browse a site that looks the same over ten years, so keep your site updated with fresh bites!

The Show Must Go On

There seems to be a common misperception about TV newsreaders.

In fact, there are two.

The general public seem to think they're the thing, the be all and end all.

However, in the industry they're the butt of everyone's jokes and teased for being 'just a pretty face' [off the record]

But then........ is that or isn't that true ?

To put this in detail, you ought to visit this url :

It just indicates how much the image level has an influence on the viewer's mind. Sometimes, he has to put sticky-pads on the bottom so as to focus his interests elsewhere. Thanks to the stock-market ticker running down below... it reduces the image influence a lot...

Please note I have no links to that website and like all others, it is just another site expressing itself.

Besides, am just starting on this blog, and perhaps may be a bit too harsh on opinions....

Ofcourse, then there are exceptions.....

So apologies, if any of you feel criticised for being overly stiff, unduly self-conscious, rude, giggly, just a pretty face, explicit, sexy [now that' a thought], ofcourse not probing enough, and trying to make cheeky and absolute infantile questions etc....

But then the show must go on...

It may sound cliched, but I am given to understand that newsreading's not as easy as it seems [now isn't that a thought] and while my tendencies are more off-screen, its certainly useful to know what's going through the news-readers mind.. What do you say ?

Infact, there are also many newsreaders available throughout the Internet.

To know which ones are available to gain access to newsgroups and Usenet, one may simple visit, a website that provides information about newsreaders, giving recommendations as to which ones are good for getting updated using newsgroups.

For news aggregators, one may visit to see which programs allow users to get feeds.

Newsreaders are definitely great tools to keep people in the know. The convenience and efficiency they provide make it appear as if news is delivered directly to you.

Establishing Online Dating Relationships: Safety First

Online dating can be fun. But don’t neglect safety and common sense when you try to hook up with a mate. At minimum, take caution in the following areas.

Protect Your Computer

Take care of your equipment and systems before you head out into the Internet realm. You need to have a firewall and anti-virus protection for your email and for when you search websites and interact online. At the bare minimum, you may want these two solutions that are offered at no charge to home computer users (i.e. not for commercial use):

Free Firewall Download: ZoneAlarm
Free Anti-Virus Download: AVG Anti-Virus

Protect Yourself

Take care of yourself, too, by choosing appropriate dating sites. Seek and choose a reputable online dating service. How? Begin by asking around with friends, neighbors, co-workers and others you may know who have tried online dating, and see which places they recommend. In addition, search “online dating services” and keep a notebook of their URLs or website links, the fees, rules and regulations, complete contact information of each and any other useful information that spikes your interest. Then compare each place. Try only those places where you feel safe. Avoid the others.

So take care. Arm your computer – and yourself- with the correct tools and knowledge!

Growing Online Dating Relationships

Just like ordinary relationships, internet or online relationships need to be nurtured and be allowed to grow over time. Here are some quick growing tips.

1. Take time and make time. Does your online date get in touch with you regularly? Do you do the same? Neglecting virtual meetings can be considered abuse or neglect, so treat each other’s time with respect. If it’s lacking, might mean time to move on.

2. Communication needs to “feel” right for both of you. If one of you is too pushy about meeting, for instance, that can give off bad vibes. So don’t rush. Take time to learn more about each other and develop trust.

3. Respect each others privacy. Don’t share personal email addresses or digital photos online, for example, if your online date sent you the information in confidence.

4. Make it a point to share each others online and offline fun times. Online – send greeting cards, links to favorite places to upload digital photos of your favorite pet, download music and video clips, post on favorite forums of interest. Offline- if you’re exchanging addresses or post office boxes, send print greeting cards and postcards, small items from your area

Attend and nurture your online relationship. If you water it with care, you would be surprised to see it sprout and grow over time.
