As Sparky Duck states it, someone is in the dog house, namely the parents who should have been watching that baby. Here. Sorry, didn't find a funny one as I don't tend to read a lot of blogs that do YouTube videos :(

2. Vacation - Kim at Kim's Candor and her beautiful family recently went to Disney. Some of the pictures are here

3. Job Passion - ok, I mostly read mom blogs, so I could post a ton of links to moms who homeschool and do an outstanding job of raising their kids. Not the "traditional" job passion, depends on what you are looking for.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started to get real money.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
