Just my luck...

6/22/2010 1:55:00 AM


Just my luck.. This goes to show you.. That even people like myself who have good relations and works with the thunderbeings are also not exempt to being struck by lightning.. or having their computer damaged via lightning strike.

We had a group of very nasty thunderstorms roll through Wisconsin Last night...

And the Lightning was popping Tree leaves all over the place like fireworks as it rolled off the house and rattled everything in site...

Even watched it bounce around the deck furnature and explode off the desk straight shooting into the marsh ...

It was exciting.. But now since my own computer is down.. This means I am out of work on all my Pay to Click sites.. Because to work those I need very good anti virus, bot, and computer protection even more so.. and I am not gonna risk doing that kind of work on my moms computer.. So I had no choice but to request payout on most of the programs... And the ones I can not request payout on I will buy advertising and advertise my listia link ...

The good news about this is.. I at night instead of working the PTCs will be working to update this news blog, and will be working on mylot and mahalo more.. which may actually increase my earnings in the long run ...

The bad news.. is it is a royal pain for mom and I to compete over one computer, as she needs hers for her foster parenting documents etc... And I need one available to do my ework.. I may be able to request payment in my earnings .. but I of course was mainly saving them for a new home.. not a new computer...

If anyone wants to buy my ebooks and chants directly through me and not my store... or wants me to try to write them a story.. I have poor grammar, and sentance structure.. But I can get a good story going if you can get past that.. I am willing to write small custom stories if people want to pay via amazon payments, amazon gift certificate, or paypal.. I prefer the amazon options.. or they can hire me through odesk .. But I do not have a whole lot of times.. So I would ask you pay the amount you think it's worth .. in the final product..

Well, I gotta head off for now.. My vision is still bothering me..

- DNatureofDTrain has left the station.. will try to catch up on things..But the same Lightning Striking kind of luck that I have.. Struck again ... to my evil computer.. I usually threaten to kill the thing with a hammer.. I guess Thors hammer got to it before I did.

"If the companies do not really want to honor these cards then they need to stop giving them..
As to me this kind of thing yells "SCAM!" ..
I know companies do not want people mooching or abusing..
But when you do free deals or cards like this you know you'll have
to give a bunch, and considering as much items and products that are thrown
away on a daily basis for expiration..
There is no reason for companies to turn their backs..
But, yes the individuals whose name is on the card,
is the one that should be honored if they want to get things
for friends or others.. Maybe allow them to add 2-3 others they can honor to a list with the card.. but that is only if they wish to do that... otherwise card uses have to stick to the TOS and agreement...and be able to  be allowed to as long as they are at the front desk paying... The companies should always honor such cards..

But, the people with them should also at times be decent enough to thank these companies..
by making actual purchases on and off aside from the cards..

However this giving away to celebrities to exploit them for photos is just a poor tasting tactic to begin with." - DNatureofDTrain

6/17/2010 3:11:00 AM

Railroad News Jun 17th 2010 - Specifically the Janesville Wisconsin Derailment.

"I am not to far from there, and this is one of my favorite railfanning places. What they did not cover in this small articles is that three cars basically just came off the track a little bit.. the train did not tip stayed upright no one hurt.. but the traffic chain effect backed up three towns, for hours :) . Is the only reason it made the news.. otherwise this is a random common minor.. not to worry about derailment.. So minor in fact that yes I did sense it on my 6th sense.. But, it was not distracting to me I could go about my day.. with hardly any issue.. as many know my 6th sense sensitivity to train wrecks and derailments can cause many issues for me.. I will eventually site down and write my stories about this sort of thing maybe I'll restart my psychic blog,, but I just do not have the time lately and wish I did.. " - DNatureofDTrain

6/9/2010 RIP Sam and General news

6/9/2010 1:59:00 AM

"Some of these are older articles.. But.. These were the top stories for me this week. Sam Aegerter, went to the same school I had... I mentioned before I did not think I knew him.... I just did not know his last name.... Although we were not close friends into really getting to know eachother. I do remember his smile, his sense of humor and caring heart. He was a mutual friend or an acquaintence in my highschool. But, a person although for as little as I knew him. I may not have known his name.. But I will not forget his smile, and caring. I have not been feeling well all weekend.. It seems because this event happened near one of my favorite railroad crossings.. and because it involved someone I knew.. My 6th sense did tap into this. I am not gonna get into detail as what happened is all covered in the news articles. But, I saw visual images that made me want to cry.. Felt strong pains in my neck that traveled into my head.. As the train passed through where I live 11 miles from the town this even happened from.. The energy of what happened came to me by the passing train .. and 2 days later Sam, showed up to tell me his killers were caught, and left a message to let everyone know he/his spirit is okay.. I feel odd passing messages for anyone when they had just passed on but sometimes I have to.. My guide recommended I share the Butterfly Greif song, so I had... I wish I got to know Sam as well as my friends had... But, I told them.. They should feel blessed to have an angel in his life.. Though at times he had struggled with things.. But, his struggles are not topic for me to discuss. I wish his Spirit rests in peace, but I know he won't.. He is not the resting type, he is a partying type :) . My prayers and thoughts are with all his family, friends, and loved ones, and others he has touched. And Thank G-d his murderer was caught... Now I pray he does not get off with an easy sentence..
