NFL Preseason is in full swing


Don't count on a Pre Season Super Bowl.

I was watching the Browns Rams Game and what I like about this game was that the Heisman Trophy Winner played "OK" for a rookie, and the Browns came out looking like they just won their last pre season game and the last four games of last season, in other words, they were thinking they were good.

But, with that said, I really like watching pre-season to see how the coaches do. That's what pre season to me is all about. Whom will they start, how will they adjust the team, tune up the team per say, and who will they let go.

What's especially concerning to me about the RAMS is how the Heisman Trophy winner will do on the road, in the rain, and how the Browns new President, Mike Holmgren will do with his group of players, while he lets Eric Mangini coach the team, which alot of people say "wink wink" , that Mike Holmgren is really coaching from afar.

Now, with all that said, I also watched the Detroit/Denver and Giants/Pittsburgh Games. Again, pre season and I want to see how coaches react to certain things. Both games were ok for pre season, hitting is real and kids are trying to make the team. But I actually think DETROIT will be much improved this year, and Pittsburgh will still have Offensive Line issues midway into the season. As far as Denver and the Giants, all I can say is they have some work to do, from what I saw.

Now, here's a bonus for those of you who are reading this blog (all 3 of you) I found a website that shows every pre-season game (and other sports) for free - it is located HERE.

Now dont worry, I dont get any money off of you if click that link to watch the games, its just a cool site I found and I hope if your a fan of a TEAM and dont want to pay for pre season football, and you live outside the area where your team is, then you can watch your team right online. I am not sure if they will be around for the regular season, but it will be rather COOL if they were!

internet services

Internet services for those on the go.

One of the best ways I've found to get your information on the net is by using a company that helps you do just that (get your information on the net)

SEO can be expensive. I found a good internet service that helps you get your business, program, blog , company on the net , and overtime, the prospects, sales, subscribers, whatever your looking for happens.

The company website is: One Button Signups and it works pretty good for the cost.

Afterall, I know you can pay thousands of dollars and get better results, but for 27 dollars a month, the ROI is pretty darn good!

Visit One Button Signups today and I think you will be surprised at the results

TIbetan Matiff at 600 Thousand Dollars

A Chinese millionaire couple paid the equivalent of $ 600,000 for the Tibetan Mastiff behalf of the Yangtze River number two. A huge dog weighs about 150 pounds. This is just one example of how expensive the Tibetan Mastiffs were in China.
Tibetan mastiff, which can reach 180 pounds, a team of sky-high prices, because they are considered good luck. Sometimes the dogs are called “snow lion” after the heavenly guardians of the Himalayan kingdom.

Nonetheless, Fan Xing, head of the International Center for Veterinary Services, said that the obsession with bad … for dogs.

Owners of large cash drop at that, ultimately, a status symbol, but not ready or unwilling to properly exercise and care for giant dogs.

A similar trend is hit in the U.S., when Disney’s 101 Dalmatians came out first: each family wanted cute, spotted puppies, but few people realized how high they are in service.

In the case of the Tibetan mastiff, which has a lifespan of 14 years, the main problem is the height: from Tibet, giant dogs are not used to altitudes below 12,000 feet, and some die when they are brought into China, the main town for sale.
