cafe chat

What is one thing that you absolutely love about friendships? Why? On the other side, what is one thing that you find absolutely difficult when it comes to friendships? Why?

I love having people to talk to… love hearing about their lives and families. I love meeting for lunch and talking and talking. It’s great to have someone to call when you have something good going on you want to share, or something bad you want to get another perspective about.

I love my internet friends. I love visiting their lives almost daily and having them visit me. It is so fun to finally meet a couple of those friends. It was like we had been friends for so long! It’s strange to explain to non-bloggers….but bloggy friends are great friends!

I guess the main difficulty I have with friendship is finding time to enjoy my friends. Julie was in town last week and I didn’t get to see her as much as I would have liked… Mendy called and left a message last week and I haven’t had a chance to call and talk to her yet. I did have lunch with Melody but hadn’t seen her in a long time. I haven’t seen Jana since her birthday in February. She even lives in Oklahoma! Laura and I have a standing lunch date because our birthdays are very close… but I haven’t seen her in a while either. I see my friends who go to church more often than anyone I guess. And then there are my friends who are in house… Matt and the kids. They are fun to be around. My mom and dad and brother Mike and his wife Terri are great friends too.

I found a couple of kodak photo cd’s while looking for something else this afternoon. They were both from spring 2004. Right before Izzy’s accident. Here are a few…







internet assets

Monday, August 4th, 2008 is a domain marketplace with an portfolio specializing in high quality geo-service and keyword-rich URLs at BIN pricing. They offer domain investors low priced domains so they can make a profit on the resale, whether they flip them quickly or hold on to them as long-term investments. They keep prices low so that domain developers can start operating ‘in the black’ faster and realize their ROI as soon as possible. That will make your investors happy which is important, especially if your are bootstrapping. The goal is to provide you with quality domains and personalized service so that you will always think of them first for your keyword and geo domain investment needs.

Some Internet assets have been developed, most have not – but they are always working on one domain or another. All are parked at Sedo and registered at GoDaddy. This consolidation enables them to quickly and easily access their domains and securely transfer ownership once a purchase has been initiated. Plans are in place to offer domain financing in the near future but, until they get their financial ducks in a row, all sales will be brokered through Sedo. look forward to providing you with an easy and enjoyable domain buying experience and are available to answer any questions concerning domains listed on the website.

You can check out geographic domains. For instance we live in Oklahoma. Here are some Oklahoma Domains for sale…
