Nothing Llike A Blonde Scorned

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates, and suitcases.

On the second day she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table.

Lit the candles, put on some soft background music and feasted on a lb of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of chardonnay.

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar, into the hollow of the curtain rods.

She cleaned up the kitchen and left

When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.

Then slowly the house began to smell.......

They tried everything, cleaning, mopping, and airing the place out.

Vents were checked for dead rodents and the carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung everywhere.

Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days.

Nothing worked......

People stopped coming over to visit.

Repair men refused to work in the house...

The maid quit...

Finally they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move..

A month later, even though they cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.

Word got out, and eventually the local realitors refused to take their calls.

Finally they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place.

The ex-wife [the blonde] called her x husband, and asked how things were going.

He told her the saga of the rotting house...

She listened politely, and said that she missed her old home terribly, and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back !!!

Knowing his wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10 what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.....

The blonde agreed, and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paper work.

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smilimg as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home, including the curtain rods.

Moral of the story...

Be extremly careful with blondes.... !!

Career Decision Made Easy

Two managers are heatedly discussing on how to lay off one of their two assistants, Jack or Jane. They go back and forth but can't decide who to lay off. Finally, one manager decides that they lay off the first person who gets up from their desk.

In the meantime, Jane is hard at work but suddenly gets a headache. She gets some aspirin from her desk drawer and gets up from her desk to get some water. As agreed, one of the managers gets up to break the bad news to Jane.

Jane, I need to talk to you. I've got a problem. I either need to lay you or Jack off..." Jane responds..... Well..... Jack off ! I've got a headache.

Online Learning and Capella's Online University

Online learning and "online college education" during the recent years has increased, which has led to increased competition among institutions to attract students.

One of the most important aspects is to find an "online learning program" that meets both professional and personal needs. Mainly because, it can be difficult to juggle classes and a career, as well as the costs and time needed.

Did you ever want to get an additional "online degree" and didn't have the time to goto a regular University – just because you couldn't spare the time to go through the entire course. Many a time you may also not want to leave your current day-job just to get that extra university degree.

Now, online learning provides that self-paced learning environment that allows you to complete a graduate online degree while working. Better still, this can be done from the convenience of a computer, no matter where you are or what time of day. This flexibility makes all the difference.

You can complete your studies from virtually anywhere in the world. You study from your own home or office, wherever it is convenient with no on-campus courses (in most cases) to attend. If you don't have the time to continue your education in the normal way, Capella University may be your best bet for online learning programs.

Capella University was established in 1993, and is a fully accredited "online university" that offers "graduate online degree programs" in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology, and bachelor’s degree programs in business and information technology. You can get your business degree online through Capella in your spare time and on your own schedule.

Capella University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capella Education Company, headquartered in Minneapolis, and offers 76 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate specializations

Most students enjoy online education for several reasons. They say that their online education outshines their traditional classroom experiences. That's because in online education is that you are a part of a team and this always helps you to learn from the students.

That's because, apart from the personal attention, it also provides a flexibility and dynamic interaction to online learning. In other words, distance education on the Internet tends to attract people who are already professionals. They bring their experience to the classroom, adding both depth and breadth to discussions.

Another very good aspect of online learning is that it is affordable. It removes financial barriers that keep some people out of college. With low tuition and flexible financial aid (which most colleges provide), you won't be burdened with a mountain of debt when you graduate. You have to pay only for the credit hours you need to complete your degree. The more previous college credit and work experience you have, the lower your cost will be. Besides you also have a variety of payment options.

There is also some conflict as to whether an online learning is as good as a traditional college education. The answer is not very difficult - there are institutions that offer good and bad online college education. This holds true for traditional college degree programs as well. So when comparing, it is obvious that in most cases, a good traditional college degree is compared with a bad online college education. Hence this conflict.

If the online university itself does not recommend any placements then its degree should be one that fetches you a good job. Obviously, the university’s reputation is a significant factor in fetching a respectable job. There are some sites that rank various online universities on the basis of their academic status.

Anyway, check out the Online-Learning options available at Capella University and decide for yourself.

Capella's Online University currently serves 16,000 students from all 50 US states and 63 countries and provides them with the opportunity to enter into graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, psychology, and bachelors degree programs in business and information technology. Capella also offer an extensive range of professional IT certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, PMP, MCSE and CISSP.

The Topic Of Your Blog

How to choose a topic for your blog ?

To answer these questions you need to decide what topics you are interested in.

What are the things that you enjoy talking about and that you would like to share with others? For instance, if you are a writer, then a blog containing information on writing would be suited for you.

The same is true for any thing that interests you. You can share the hobbies that you enjoy. If certain events that are taking place in the world get you stirred up this could be a good topic for your blog. You do however, have to choose a topic so that anyone interested in visiting your blog will know what to expect.

Otherwise, very few people may want to waste their time going to a blog when they have no idea what it is about.

After determining the things that interest you, your next step would be to choose the topic from these things that is broad enough to allow you to gather information to have something to talk about. You do not want to make two or three entries then run out of things to say. An example of a good topic would be a
network marketer.

Someone with this type of blog could write about tips on marketing tools and strategies. They could also talk about marketing software and a number of other subjects related to network marketing. The key is to have a topic that will allow you plenty of material to talk about, but still small enough that you can stay focused on one subject.

Readers come to expect a certain amount of information when they look at your blog. This is why it is important to stay focused on your original topic most of the time. If you begin talking about to many other subjects to often, some of your readers could lose interest and look elsewhere for information. It doesn’t hurt to throw something else in there occasionally just to keep things interesting, but for the most part stick to your topic.

Be Creative

Just because we said it is best to stay with your original topic doesn’t mean that you cannot experiment a little. There are ways to add zest to your blog while staying focused. For instance, many have found that adding interviews and group projects to their blogs worked really well. You could even invite a lot of people to blog together at the same time. There are a variety of different things that you can try on your blog. You just need to stay open minded enough to give new things a try once in a while. If one thing does not work well, move on to something else. Eventually you will find what works best for your blog to keep
your readers interested.

Use Popular Ideas

You can do some background research to see what is popular at this time. Big ticket topics are always things such as:

How to make money
How to lose weight
How to improve your life (your marriage, your job, etc,)

You can find out about hot topics to include in your blog with some simple and
easy research.

People are also highly interested in topics that are related to their diet and health such as which foods to eat, great exercises to get desired results, how to supplement a vegetarian diet, etc. You might do reviews and experiments of common weight loss programs, exercise programs, etc. There is just a mass of information to be found on the topic. If it pertains to health and fitness or weight loss, you are probably in the gold.

Make Money From Blogging

You can’t forget this one! "Make money from blogging" is another very popular one. People love to have more information about how they can make more money. If you can help them find ways to make more money, they will gladly pay the small fee for your e-book. I mean, the potential risk is low and the potential gain very high.

Can I Get Others To Write For My Blog?

Yes, there are several ways you can have others do the blogging for you. In other words, content added to your blog – by others.

If you have a team of content providers, you can create several user accounts using your blogging software. Each member of your team then logs in and writes for your blog, adding their content. You can even assign different levels of permissions for each user in some types of blog software.

Another way to get contributed content is to invite your blog readers to enter comments and feedback. Clicking on a link at the end of a post will bring up a popup window in which a reader can add comments. And the author can respond.

A third way to include content on your blog is by publishing syndicated content from others on your blog using some XML programming.

So, relax - if you are feelin lazy, find someone to do the blogging for you
