Personal Post 2: WhoCalled.Us -- Great Site

Visions Marketing calls me regularly. I never pick up. They don't care.

After this afternoon's call, I did Google their phone number -- and discovered a great online service at WhoCalled.Us.

From the site's homepage:

"The phone is ringing, and I don't recognize the number. All Caller ID says is, "NAME UNAVAILABLE". Please help me figure out who is calling and what they want."

Wow. I love these people. They understand. I am not alone.

At WhoCalled.Us, not only can you search for information about your particular pest, you can also discover the top pests around the country. (The Dove Foundation is very pushy, apparently.)

There are also neat facts - like California, Texas, and Florida are the most popular among pests. And, there's a forum. You, too, can share your experiences as well as learning the testimonies of others, nation-wide.

Today, I learned that Visions Marketing calls a lot of folk, who don't answer, and Visions isn't dissuaded there, either. Somehow, this makes me feel better.

Reminds me of a quote I heard a long while back, that one thing you can say about Satan is that he is a persistent cuss. So true.

New Movie Must-See: Maxed Out

From the folk that brought us SuperSizeMe, another new documentary: Maxed Out. From the site:

"Maxed Out takes viewers on a journey deep inside the American style of debt, where things seem fine as long as the minimum monthly payment arrives on time. With coverage that spans from small American towns all the way to the White House, the film shows how the modern financial industry really works, explains the true definition of "preferred customer" and tells us why the poor are getting poorer while the rich keep getting richer. Hilarious, shocking and incisive, Maxed Out paints a picture of a national nightmare which is all too real for most of us."

-- MaxedOut.com.

It's only in limited release at the moment, just as SuperSizeMe was - initially. SuperSizeMe is now on television, regularly: just this past week, it was shown in its entirety on MSNBC.

Uses for Vinegar

Vinegar - there are entire sites devoted to its miriad of uses. I posted about some of its household uses last year -- but that didn't begin to cover everything that is great about basic, common vinegar ....

Medicinally, apple cidar vinegar is a folk remedy that garners thousands of testimonials, and has been used for centuries for everything from arthritis to depression.
Helping pets: from fleas to hot spots, vinegar has lots of testimonials to being a Godsend.

In gardening: spray it, undiluted, between the bricks on the patio to get rid of the weeds popping thru (yep, no more toxic stuff). I could go on and on and on.

Here's some sites to check out if you'd like to learn more:

And the cost? Amazon.com sells a huge bottle (128 oz.) of Heinz White Vinegar for $3.99.
