Stateline, NV New Years Eve Crowd

Every year thousands of people gather in the streets in Stateline Nevada to bring in the New Year and this year was no exception. The streets were closed and all traffic was diverted around and nice weather welcomed thousands who came to party and celebrate the new year.

Some dude climbed the street light during
the Stateline New Years Eve celebration.

As you can see, there were so many revelers that the party spilled over into South Lake Tahoe, CA.

Moving Out of Hotel Room

We have been living in a crappy hotel room in South Lake Tahoe. They are making us move out tonight so they can rent it out to New Years Eve revelers. We are staying in the van, we can move back in 4-days. At least it's a 2 room place...

Extra Extra Read All About It!!!

Green Gifts

WOW, I won a 2009 Giant Squid award for my Top 10 Best Green Gift Ideas 
Squidoo Lens. I was aware of the nomination, however actually winning this award is completely unexpected. I mean they were all wonderful eco-friendly themed Squidoo's that were nominated along side me, so it really could have gone to anyone of the go green Lenses. Thanks to everyone who voted for my eco-friendly gift ideas Squidoo lens, I have worked long and hard refining it to the helpful resource it is today! The incredible variety of eco-friendly gifts I'm able to offer, is really a testament to how far we have come in recent years thanks to the awareness that's spreading around the world.

Best Gifts for Christmas

Christmas Gifts
Well this year Google decided it loves my Top 10 Best Christmas Gift Ideas page and it's sending me like 20,000+ hits per day, I'm serious, we are just getting slammed and folks are ordering gifts like crazy, it's so cool! I think they dig the unique gift ideas we are offering, after all we sort and sift through so much stuff to bring only the best gift ideas from top sources.

It all started back in 2005 I was looking for a place online that would let me create free web pages on what ever I wanted, that's when I found Squidoo and fell in love. They allow you to build a web page on nearly what ever you want, perfect. I started making free web pages, mostly I was interested in the Photographic niche, but diversified into the gift ideas niche too. Well the photography niche is proving to be nice and steady, but the gift ideas niche has totally exploded on me!
