My daughter has a Blog and told me I should get one. In fact, she said I already had one. Well, I don't like the name Blog so I changed it to Blob which rhymes with slob and as I am somewhat of a slob that sounded just right!
I get an e-mail from a nice lady in another country telling me her advertising firm wishes to advertise on the HeadHunter Taxidermy site. So we are e-mailing back and forth a time or two as I find out what she wants. I say OK and she e-mails back that the advertiser canceled. Went with someone else. I guess I took to long to decide if you consider less the a week is too long.
Yeah, I know. You have to be FAST these days with your decisions. Maybe that is why we are all in such a world wide financial pickle. Got to spend that money fast. If you didn't, you might not spend it at all.
