They promise that it would include traffic to my site. Is there any truth to that? Sylvie Dear Sylvie Quite the opposite. If the search engines catch you linking to those spammers, then they penalize you and dump your hard earned ranking. Forget the rethoric and BS of the self styled Search Engine Optimizers. 99.99% of them are clueless con artists. The search engines spend very serious money to be relevant, to show what you are looking for, and NOT showing some irrelevant garbage promoted by search engine "experts" trying to sneak around the rules. Just make sure your content is relevant and matches your site title, and you'll soon rank high in the search engines. Have FUN! DearWebby
A perfectionist teacher demands the very best of all of her pupils. So it is only to be expected that she would get furious when one little fellow hands in a sloppily done homework paper. "This is the worst essay it has been my misfortune to read," the woman says through clenched teeth. "It has so many mistakes. I can't understand how one person could have made all these mistakes." "It wasn't just one person," the boy replies defensively. "My mom helped me."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Painting Old Windows With a few inexpensive supplies you can create your own faux stained glass window to display in your home. This is a guide about painting faux stained glass on old windows. I got this old window at a salvage store. $5.00. I used clear Elmer's glue mixed with a small amount of acrylic paint to create faux stained glass paint. I outlined my pattern with black paint that comes with a tip. Then I added embellishments and presto, trash to treasure. By Bruzier from Omaha, Ne I used to do a lot of that in the 70's. You can get cheap acrylic (plexiglass), and "Liquid Leading" at craft stores. It is lead grey and comes in a needle tip toothpaste tube. You pencil your design and run a bead of leading along the pencil line. Then you put a few drops of filler into the fields. You can use any outdoor varnish with a bit of paint from the same brand added. Acrylic, not Latex! If you have some money, you can get different "wrinklers" for stained glass. A drop of that into a freshly filled field will give it a starburst or spiderweb texture. Very pretty! Then you put the plexiglass behind the clear glass on a door or top window. Easy and VERY artsy and very expensive looking! Have FUN! DearWebby

This transparent graffiti illusion is awesome!
A question had appeared in a students' medical examination which read: "List four benefits of breast milk." A student began to answer the question: 1. No need to bottle it. 2. Cats can't steal it. 3. Available whenever necessary. But the fourth point eluded him. When there were barely a couple of minutes before the exam ended, the fourth point flashed to his mind. So he completed the answer by writing: 4. Available in very attractive containers.
