My cousin is trying out for American Idol!!

I have a cousin who is georgous and has a great singing voice and has sung the national Anthem for Football games and such accapella. Kelly, my cousin, said she will be trying out for the American Idol when it shows up in Boston soon. I am so excited for her!! I hope she does well. Her dad, my uncle, was recently in Tokyo teaching the Japanese to play American football. He was chosen along with a Boston U coach to teach one of 2 teams to play. My uncle got to Japan and did not realize what a celebrity he was there. He saw his name and face in billboards and on busses everywhere he looked! Huh. He is the head football coach for Brown University.

Anyway, not sure why I had to go into all that. Just thought I would. I ramble a lot in real life, why not on the internet too? :)

you mean my opinion counts!?

You bet! I have been a member of Epinions.com since 12/01 and I have enjoyed reading the opiions of others on items I would like to purchase. I have written 12 reviews myself and I have gotten great feedback on them. You can make money writing your opinions. I have only made about $8.00 so far but I also have not concentrated on writing a lot of opinions. If I were to write an opinion a day and do it well, I could make some nice spending cash every month. I may do this one day when I find I have more time. You can find almost anything and read up on what people have to say about thier experiences were with that particular product. It is a very helpful site. You can find cost of items, places to buy and even tips on buying.

"somebody said," Alice whispered, "that it's done by everybody minding thier own business!"


"If everybody minded thier own business," the Duchess said, in a hoarse growl, "the world would go round a deal faster that it does."


"You're thinking about something, my dear, and that makes you forget to talk. I can't tell you just now what the moral of that is, but I shall remember it in a bit."


"Tut, tut, child," said the Duchess "Everything's got a moral if only you can find it."


"The game's going on rather better now," she (Alice) said, by way of keeping up the conversation a little.


" 'Tis so," said the Duchess, "and the moral of that is -- 'Oh, 'tis love, that makes the world go round!' "


The Duchess in Alice and Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)

~Ding Dong, AVON calling!~

That has been my catch phrase lately. :) I am enjoying my first week in AVON. I have a website for those who would like to order AVON right from the company. You would get your AVON delivered right to your door. I like that AVON is doing this now. My website address is www.youravon.com/kbrobst
Check it out. I think it is cool. I change it every 2 weeks, sometimes more often. :)
Well, it is 3:30 am and I am not a bit tired. I have a meeting with a new recruit tomorrow afternoon and I am excited about this one. He really seems eager to make a lot out of his business with AVON.
Ya know, I probably should not have had that coffee today. I went to Dunkin D's and got a coffee like usual but today I forgot to ask for a decaf so I ended up with a regualr. I knew it was not decaf before I drank it but I figured since I paid for it I might as well drink it. Big mistake. I can't stop tossong and turning in my bed so I get up every hour and see what's up on the World Wide Web. I really need to get some sleep. My kids will be up in about 4 hours. EEK!
