Odds and Ends.......

First a good thing. As we all are on the computers frequently, why not do something good.

Click on the purple button at The Animal Rescue Site and give food to an animal living in a shelter or sanctuary --at no cost to you. Here is the link to the site.

To help give free Mammograms, click on this link

To give 1.1 cups of food to the hungry click on this link

To help protect 11.4 square feet of rain forest click on this link

Daily Savings Club, how are you all doing? As it's the 21st of February, you should have $10.50 saved up, pretty good eh?

And finally, as you know I moderate my comments. Things have been quiet for a while, but I now have an anonymous person, who is leaving me delightful comments, but doesn't actually have the guts to have a link back to their site. So they seem to be ticked because I won't publish their comments. I am more than happy to publish their comments, if they would be honest enough to not to hide behind the words "ANONYMOUS." They did use the word Stepford Mum writes, now I am not sure if that's their name, or they could be referring to me...lol I wish I were that perfect.

I have the attitude that if you don't like what I write, then don't read it, no one is forcing you to read my blog. Also if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything. Alright I have had my say, NOW BACK TO MY CORNER!!!

I have a banner on the top of my blog that gives free rice to every trivia question you get right. It's quite fun to play.

I with you on the comments Gill. Life is too short to upset anyone's day.
Could you explain your money saver scheme again or send me a link to the post as I seemed to have been not concentrating that day or missed it. I'm not blaming it on age this time, just the weather, slows down the brain cells, LOL, Margaret

OMG how bored must they be? isnt life hard enough with normal everyday things to be arsed to leave snotty comments? Good grief..I feel sorry for them. If they want something to do they can always come here and dig...I have about half an acre to prepare by about mmmm next week!

Thanks for the links, Gill. Some of them I didn't know about.
As for the rude commentor, sounds like they need to "get a life"!

I click on the Humane Society site daily, and the food site, the Breast Cancer site, but a few are new to me. Thanks for the intro, Gill

These people that are so busy going around leaving comments w/o their name are a dime a dozen. It's the ones who leave comments with thier name or link to their site that are worth a million.

I love what Gaynor said. If they want something to do they can always come and dig!!! I think most of us have gardens to do. Better yet, maybe a chicken coop or two might do the trick.

I get quite a few anonymous remarks from people who don't have accounts but read and comment on blogs. My brother and daughter do that frequently. I've had a couple of snarky remarks from anonymous people too. I don't moderate incoming messages, but if they're inflammatory, or peddling something, I delete them. I like immediate gratification on comments, but I'm always willing to remark on blogs that approve comments first. Like yours.

My word verification for this was dambac. I use that word all the time: My dambac hurts today.

I'm with you and Bambi's Mother regarding making comments. Am loving your blog, just stumbled onto it a few weeks ago. Have a great day!

Decadent Housewife said...

Hmmm. Just occurred to me that it was THuMPER's Mother who said, "If you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all." But I suppose Bambi's Mother would too. :)

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Thanks for the tips for the sites to click. I have one for the mammograms but not the others.

Good for you having your say re anon.

Thanks for the links Gill, very worthy causes and would like to do my part. I have found them before but need to bookmark them I guess. Sorry about the upset with the negative comments. Just keep being yourself.

fizzycat said...

Thanks thats a good site with all the free clicks. Must put the free rice one on my blog.Hope you have a good weekend.

Patty said...

I click on all of these every day. Since I changed my template, have to remember to put that one back on. I only need the one, because it gives you the option to click each thing it offers.

Hope you're have a great week-end.

And even though I don't get immediate comment gratification, I've given you an award at my place. There is no need to get dressed up to pick up the award. It's not like I've laid down a red carpet, though I should.

Wow. Poor you! Just ignore it and keep up with that great attitude.

Great links!
