Playtime for Real

Now here's something fun to do that can help with your financial future. UMOO is an online virtual stock trading game. It's simple to use and really pumps up your competitive juices. This fantasy game is low risk but comes with a real opportunity to win, which is very cool.

Again, it's easy to participate. You buy-in with a fee to enter the tournament of your choice. With the virtual money you're given, you build your portfolio based on live stock market activity. None of this is pretend; it's actual stock market data. Naturally, you want to make as much money as you can, outdoing your competitors in the tournament. If you've done the best job of maximizing your portfolio, then you reap the rewards and win a prize.

In the process of playing this game, you're learning how to sell and trade on the stock market. When you're ready, you can take what you've learned and play the real thing, ultimately bringing in some actual money, increasing the portfolio that really matters in life.

UMOO is fun, competitive, and instructive. It's a fantasy game that is easy to play and that can give you the tools to venture into the stock market and change your life.

Any Ideas?

Just wondering if anyone has ideas how else I could earn some money on the internet. I'm doing everything I can think of that allows me to earn cash, but the kitty is about empty, and June is going to be a disaster. I'm not sure I'm gonna survive this one. Obviously, there still hasn't been any word from the disability folks. It's taking so long. I thought I'd know by now, that I'd be able to make it until being approved, but now I don't think I'm going to be able to. Just had a big fight with my sister over it. She helps in ways that make sense to her but that doesn't necessarily fall in line where I feel I need the help, like cash to pay the bills. We're just so different. I just don't know what else I can do, given the specifics of my situation. Ideas are always welcome, the more immediate the better.

A Sparking Tip

On this Monday evening, here's a sizzling tip for the folks in Madison, Wisconsin. When you need an electrician, consider Madison Electrician, otherwise known as Alliance Electric. This company performs all kinds of electrical services for folks residing in the Madison area. No job is too small for this electrical contractor.

Many of us don't pay enough attention to our electrical systems, but it's really important to keep wiring up to date, and if you notice anything strange, you really should check it out. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes. Not only that, if you're making some additions to your home, let Alliance Electric ensure that your electrical additions are installed properly in order to safeguard you and your family.

Alliance Electric includes on their website some very helpful factors for consumers to consider when choosing an electrician. Much of it is common sense, but for someone not used to dealing with hiring someone to work on their electrical systems, the information can guide you through the process, making it easy and painless.

So, if you are looking to upgrade your electrical system or if you just need to repair old wires and systems, consider Alliance Electric. They're eager to work for you.

Survivor Sadness

No, I'm not referring to last night's finale for Survivor, which was pretty pathetic. I'm not buying into the nice guy act of JT. He back-stabbed Taj unnecessarily and then put on a big act in response to what Steven had said, so I'm just not buying it.

Anywho, the post is about past winner Ethan Zohn, the soccer player who was a nice guy and won a few years back in Africa. I just read that he has CD20-positive Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The only good part is that it has a 90% survival rate. I'm hoping he's one of them because he is a good guy.
