by Venomous Kate

From I Think Therefore I Blog:

Today’s Deal: Save $99 on a market umbrella! – This end-of-summer clearance is a great buy. I know because I have one!

From Blogging for the Money:

• Search engines serving a charitable purpose – Turn your online time into a good deed.

• Cut and Paste Cleanly – Strip formatting from MS Word or other apps so you can paste straight into blog entries.
