rainy season

Today was beautifully cool and rainy, humid but without the sauna-like heat. It's much too late at night after a week of little sleep. I have to wake up early tomorrow to call home to commence planning of the family visit to Japan. My parents and brother will be here for a week. I'm really excited! I've been making lists of places to visit, and we're going to Tokyo on the bullet train, so I can't wait for that. I go to Osaka often, but it's just not the same as Tokyo. Not as electric-feeling, but maybe that is just an idea that I impose on the city because of all I have heard about it. Our time in Japan is rapidly coming to a close. I've taught my last classes, already had a farewell party with the English teachers, and have only one final exam left to give. Today I said goodbye to my yoga teacher in Kobe, who is one of the coolest people I have met here. His belief in global peace and the calm and centeredness that radiates from him is inspiring to me. I'm thinking very seriously about working toward becoming a yoga teacher.

It's hard to know how to feel about going back home. It was a very difficult year, but the last few months have become comfortable and in many ways I don't feel ready to leave. I've worked really hard to get that ability to feel at-home here. I hate to give it up so soon. However, even if we didn't want to be close to family right now, I don't know that I would want to commit to another year in a high school, and don't really know what else I would do here. I feel excited to get back into a "job" job, where I will actually be busy doing things that might be more satisfying to me than trying to shove a few words of English down the throats of uninterested youth. And yet I'm also really worried about the low low wages in Montana. Yes, the cost of living is lower, but I really hope to make enough money to have options other than shopping for everything at Walmart. I'm thrilled to be close to family though. We've lived far from home for so long. Last year we spent a lot of time with family before leaving for Japan, and it was really wonderful. It made leaving much harder. So, I'm happy to be going back to that. It feels like now that the big Japan experience is over (for now at least) that I should figure out what I want to do. Full-time yoga teacher? Publishing? Editing? Are any of those possibilities even available in Montana? I have no idea...

And yes, I do know that Portland is a great city. Actually, I would love to live in Portland someday. But now we are needed back in the home state, so to speak. I have a love-hate relationship with Montana, and I know we won't be there forever. There are many many places left to go.

Hot News From The Automotive Lending Industry!!

+++++++++Current Profile+++++++++
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp (IFLH)
Current Price $0.036
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities?
Watch this One to Trade!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain?s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine?s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company?s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor?s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
GO IFLH!

Hi matey

I'm sure it was this blog I was reading a while back where someone was looking for an SEO tool for driving more traffic and get more hits for their website.

Anyway, I was speaking to a techi guy at work who gets to know all the latest stuff and he uses the free Link Referral Program at http://marketingexperts.wordpress.com.

His website on free advertising marketing amongst other stuff has seen traffic explode since he started using the Link Referral Program - consequently his affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS his website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)
