Just been on a beach holiday with the Family and Friends. The picture above is the view from where we stayed. Huh!
We cooked, ate, slept, read, played on the beach and in the rock pools…
There were a lot of us staying at the cottage (10), and on the second night, we descended, by default, into a party.
It got to the point where my friend, Dale, started “Zulu Gumboot Dancing”, to some 80’s tunes. Incongruous? She tried to teach Kevin some moves. Unsuccessful.
She also, by the way, won the “best dressed” award for the evening. Slippers, knee-length hockey socks, camouflage shorts, t-shirt, sleeveless-puff-jacket. Take a second to imagine it…
Kevin goes to check on his sleeping girlfriend, Kim, and as he walks into the room, he catches this burglar trying to climb through the burglar bars.
He shouts, comes running out to tell us. We go on a perimeter patrol to try to catch these guys. Without a torch. What were we going to do? Breathe on them!
Suffice to say we didn’t find them. Anyway…
So, we forget to switch on the alarm. These guys come back (tenacious), sneak into the house and steal a camera.
Next, break into a car. Get nothing ‘cause the car is empty. Do not need to break into the other car, ‘cause it is open… Score two iPods and money. They, I thought, very thoughtfully, left the wallets and cards behind. Nice burglars.
Now, Richard, who obviously snores, had bought this homeopathic anti-snoring spray. Before he goes to sleep, sprays it into his mouth… Has an allergic reaction. Throat closes. Can’t breathe. Panic.
His wife, Jo, is a Doctor. Serendipitous. She almost has to do a tracheotomy. Rush off to hospital. Put into ICU. Medicated. On a drip. Rehydrated.
We all thought that this was a cunning way to cure a hangover and have a good enough excuse not to have to look after the kids the next day, while battling a hangover. It turns out, that he witnessed a couple of gruesome things that day. At the risk of sounding crass, it was funny when he told it. We forgave him. So it goes…
What a night. All in all not a bad holiday either.
One of the few rules, was that each night, someone had to cook the evening meal for everyone else. Therefore, my product for this blog, just in case you find yourself in a similar type of situation, is this marvelous little recipe book:
As an added bonus, in case you find yourself in a similar situation with burglars, I am offering up this gem on self defense:
Now that I think about it, if like Richard, you want to avoid emergency medical care, you need to look at this beauty:
If you are one of the burglars and you are reading this, please can we have our things back?
So I have been to ClickBank.com and opened an account… A good place to start, me thinks!
I am now an official “affiliate” at ClickBank! It seems that the jargon for this type of thing, marketing other’s products, is “affiliate marketing”. So therefore, I guess, I am now an “affiliate marketer”. Very posh indeed!
How it works, is that you visit their “market place” and scan through the “products”, chose what you would like to market and they provide you with a “hoplink” for you to embed into your site/blog. When anyone clicks on that link, ClickBank (G-d only knows how?) automatically knows that you have referred that person and if that person buys, then you get paid a commission into your ClickBank account.
Now, so I have been told, comes the “tricky part”. ClickBank don’t pay you out until:
1. You have a minimum of USD10 in your account.
2. Purchases have been made with a minimum of five different credit cards. This means we have to make five sales before we start earning.
OK, once you have cracked this, they send you a cheque in the post after subtracting USD2.50 (admin fee).
Our first aim is to try to make five sales and earn at least USD10 from these.
It stands to reason that I now need products to “promote”.
Therefore it is with great pleasure that I introduce you to “The Great ClickBank Caper’s” very first product!
