Just thought I'd let you know about a site where you can make over $800 a month in extra income. Go to this site   MAKE MONEY NOW  and put in your zip code..... up will pop several places where you can get paid to secret shop, take surveys, etc.  It's free.  I found several and I live in a small town!

Please amend the information on RimCon Victoria. The Convention sells memberships, not tickets (a common mistake for people unfamiliar with SF Conventions. Also the date should read 22-24 Sept 2005 at the Holiday Inn Victoria. Remove Cary Conder's information from the blog. Her website is not to be used in conjunction with the Convention. Thank you.
