Thoughts from Paris 

Yes, that Paris. A local gone Continental named Gerald Holt: I was born at Gulfport Memorial, grew up in Long Beach, where I went to Jeff Davis Elementary and Long Beach High School. My grandparents are buried in Biloxi. I have been living in Paris, France for many years now, but when something like this happens, it brings everything back -- crabbing all summer on the 'rockpile' in Long Beach (the marina was still years away), the fishing rodeo in July, picking blackberries in the bushes along the Old Pass Road -- and always taking a stick in case there were snakes. I have been watching every scrap of news I can get over the internet, as well as CNN and BBC World on cable, and of course the local French news reports which are shocked and aghast at all that has happened. To see citizens of 'the most powerful country in the world' on their knees, people crying and begging just like all of the news reports they have seen in the past of disasters in Indonesia or Bangladesh or Somalia, not to mention Iraq, is beyond belief. The scenes of looting and violence defy description. The US has helped so many other places over the years, and in Europe, they find it terrible to see the US in need and help not arriving fast enough. I really hope that the US will not be too proud to accept the offers of help that European and other countries have given. There is no shame in taking a helping had that is held out to you, and the French will never forget the help they received when they needed it.

I'm bookmarking your site. So much about land loan,
I can't believe it.
Got some good things about land loan at my site.
Come have a look.
 
Saw your blog about bankrupt airline - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Good blog - very interesting!! I liked it so much I'm going to share this hush hush advice with you. Ever wondered how your neighbours are driving around in their brand new BMW or Mercedes cars - with their kids dressed in all the latest named gear and foreign holidays aplenty?? Well they discovered the secret to the extra online income.

If you are looking for a free tool to attract loads of free links to your blog or website then congratulations I've got the solution for you - and it is FREE!!

My website specialises in adhd food allergy and to drive traffic to my website I was searching around the internet for absolutely ages looking for SEO tools and ffa submission sites to fire my site up the Google search engine - unfortunately these doing work and in fact had the opposite affect plunging my site down the rankings like it had a heavy weight attached!!, then I signed up for this free superb traffic generating tool - I now have loads of hits to my websites/blogs and my site is shooting back up the Google rankings quicker than ever before.

Consequently this saw my affiliate commissions shoot through the roof - meaning lots of extra money coming in for my family - I bought my first Mercedes car on the proceeds of my online campaign.
Sign up now - it's free.
. Sorry if this information is of no use to you but seeing as you have the anonymous feature enabled I thought I should share this free bit of essential promotional advice with you and would hope you would do the same for me and others who want to boost their online internet income.

I hope the tool will serve you equally as well as it has me - it's free!!

Best of luck, cheers for now, dave.
