Mink Coats and Foul Weather Gear..


marysfarmreport

The three mink coats became one of the best investments I ever made. They were used by all my girl friends that had a special place to wear them. But the best part was the role they played as “Foul Weather Gear”, on the Yacht Mariner II., that I operated as a Yacht Charter business on San Francisco Bay.

My chief steward, Dean Radcliff took such delight in offering a coat to the ladies on board the yacht. He would say; “ I notice that you appear to be chilled. May I get you some foal weather gear? IT IS MINK!” Then as their jaw dropped, he would add, so very casually; “What color would you like”?

    I recently started a blog, and I was just wondering how people have promoted their blogs online to get more followers so you aren’t just typing to nothing out in the internet?. Oh, and for my blog, I don’t really want my friends to be my followers, unless they find it on their own. My blog is about something that most of my friend’s can’t really help me with. (Photography is the main subject).

    There’s an interesting webpage that has just been deleted, but thanks to the miracle of hibernation, it’s still open in Firefox. The problem is, when I save it, it seems to attempt to retrieve the page from its source on the internet, which no longer exists. Is there any way I can configure Firefox to save the locally-held files instead?.

This won’t do me any good if I can’t get my words where people can read them.. . Blogspot is preferred, but anything allowing advertising would be fine. I might want to monetise eventually, and wordpress seems to discourage that, as I understand their terms of use..

  8. I have a blog on Blogspot that I’ve been trying to customize with my own banner, but I can’t seem to figure out where to do this 😛 A site where I could make a banner would be helpdul, too.
