An email that i got today:
This is a true story.
Please forward when you finish reading!
A little background:
Neiman-Marcus, if you don’t know already, is a very expensive boutique
shop (they sell a typical $8.00 T-shirt for $50.00)
My daughter and I had just finished lunch at a Neiman-Marcus Cafe in
Dallas , USA . Because both of us are such biscuit lovers, we decided to
try the ‘Neiman-Marcus cookie’. It was so excellent that I asked if they
would give me the recipe. The waitress said with a small frown, ‘I’m
afraid not, but you can buy the recipe.’
I asked how much, and she responded; ‘Only two fifty – it’s a great
deal’I agreed to that, and told her to add it to my bill.
Thirty days later, I got my Visa statement, and the Neiman-Marcus charge
was $285. I looked at it again, and I remembered I had only spent $9.95
for two sandwiches and about $20 for a scarf. At the bottom of the
statement, it said, ‘Cookie Recipe – $250.00’. That was outrageous!
I called Neiman’s Accounting Department and told them the waitress had
said it was ‘two fifty’, which clearly does not mean ‘two hundred and
fifty dollars’ by any reasonable interpretation of the phrase.
Neiman-Marcus refused to budge. They would not refund my money because
according to them; ‘What the waitress told you is not our problem. You
have already seen the recipe. We absolutely will not refund your money.
I explained to the Accounting Department lady the criminal statutes
which govern fraud in the state of Texas . I threatened to report them to
the Better Business Bureau and The Texas Attorney General’s office. I
was basically told: Do what you want. Don’t bother thinking of how you
can get even, and don’t bother trying to get any of your money back’
I said, OK, you’ve got my $250, and now I’m going to have $250 worth of
fun. I told her that I was going to see to it that every cookie lover in
the world with an e-mail account gets a $250 cookie recipe from
Neiman-Marcus for free. She replied, ‘I wish you wouldn’t do that.’ I
said, ‘Well, perhaps you should have thought of that before you RIPPED
ME OFF!’ and slammed down the phone.
So here it is! Please pass it on to everyone you can possibly think of.
I paid $250 for this, and I don’t want Neiman-Marcus to EVER make
another penny from this recipe!

This is not a joke-it’s a true story.
I’ve just started another blog. Yep don’t you know it.

Last night on Today Tonight, a popular TV show on channel 7, a money making scheme was shown called Freagle.
Shown as the “Easiest Home Business Ever”, Today Tonight presented this story, interviewing people who have had major success using the program and the two of the site owners. Some would say the site has just paid some big bucks and used the today tonight as a big ad campaign for their money making program. I’m not going to discuss that part but if your interested, head over to this blog where its currently being discussed.
The site http://www.easiesthomebusinessever.com.au is a monthly subscription program you can sign up to and they claim that using the program you can earn over $100 an hour following the simple tutorials and using their in house software called Freagle. Freagle also owns other companies such as Freestuffday & Layby.
Ok, So What’s This Site All About?
Does Freagle Work is me going through the program blogging about every aspect of it. I’m going to see if you really can make money from it and then help you do it in the process. If it doesn’t work. I’m going to spam the blog all over the net and make sure people don’t give these creeps any more money :)
“Coldplay will be giving away a live CD, LeftRightLeftRightLeft, at every remaining live show in 2009 (apart from festival shows). Starting with the band’s first North American tour date, at West Palm Beach in Florida on May 15th, every fan attending a show will be given a free copy of the nine-track CD, which won’t be available elsewhere. Also on May 15th, LeftRightLeftRightLeft will be made available as a free download right here at Coldplay.com, for all fans (and for the same time period). ”
According to the band, the give-away is meant as a recession-busting mark of gratitude to everyone who’s supported them: “Playing live is what we love. This album is a thank you to our fans – the people who give us a reason to do it and make it happen.”
The album was recorded over the past year in various cities around the world on the Viva La Vida tour. Its tracklisting is as follows:
1. Glass of Water
4. Strawberry Swing
5. The Hardest Part/Postcards From Far Away
6. Viva La Vida
7. Death Will Never Conquer
8. Fix You
9. Death And All His Friends”

Dual monitors are awesome but can be a little restrictive in the default windows environment.
Normally you can only have one taskbar so when you have windows on the 2nd monitor they clutter up your one and only taskbar.
Now you can have 2 taskbars and more on your monitors, it feels like you are running multiple computers!
Multi Monitor Taskbar – Freeware & Even works with the latest Windows 7 unlike Ultramon(another monitor solution but $40)
