Time for another story? Ok, here we go.

When I was about six years old, living in a small village in Russia, times were tough for my mother, but not I. I did not know the difference. Sure we could have meat (pork) only once a month, if that, but I did not suffer because of it. I was having too much fun as a young boy. Only later on did I find out that she held down three jobs to just make ends meet.

In any case, on several occasions myself and my best friend Misha (Michael), would be just a bit hungry around lunch time, so off we would go to the railroad tracks, about 2 Km out. We knew from experience that the folks on the trains would for some odd reason drop their trash near our village. Usually we could find quite a few wooden boards (plywood I would guess), in small sizes, the type we could pull back on and use as sleighs (like the plastic ones kids use these days) to barrel down a hill in all abandon!

So, in any case, we would gather up a few of these and bring them to Masha, my 80 year old (? not sure of her age at that time) landlady. She would use them as tops/covers for large pails of... stuff. Don't know what was in them. Could have been dead body parts. (Just joking). Pickled stuff mostly. As a reward she would give us some soup, and on occasion even some sour cream to go with that. And boy were we overjoyed!

I guess today's kids in Canada and the USA are spoiled. We had great fun, good teeth, and good health, for the most part. One day I'll tell you about burning tires. js

Monday March 2nd:

Just got the below award from Jim (Hermit Jim). See his blog for an explanation. Thank you Jim! I am going to follow the rules but some of the bloggers I follow have aleady received the reward from Jim directly.

Ok, this is in progress so am going to start with:

Here are the signs to watch out for with HYIPs

Here are the signs to watch out for with HYIPs (and can be applied to some scam SURFs), events usually proceed in the following manner:

  • The Admin announces that suddenly they are experiencing a DDOS attack and/or
  • The Admin adds new plans (because he needs more money coming in before he runs), especially plans in the upper stratosphere to get the BIG bucks in with a large daily ROI (I've seen this over and over and over) and/or
  • The Admin creates new promotions in order to get more money in (you know, prizes and such).
  • For some odd reason payments stay long in PENDING status, more than what is usual in the past, or rules are changed from say from 24 hrs to pay to 2-3 business days or to even 7 to 9 business days. Red flags!
  • Admin pays out selectively. Small payments. To monitors and bloggers to keep them happy and unsuspecting.
  • There is a server crash or payments stop and Admin is gone! Folks in forums complain, specutate, bitch, to no avail.
  • Detractors are fed upon with a frenzy... and in time folks start to wake up to the fact that ... Admin is gone, site is gone, they have lost.
  • Finally the various forums like MMG, CIF, ASA, move that thread to the scam/closed area.
  • Admin opens a new HYIP or SURF, and the cycle begins again. So there you go!

SURF REVIEW: Proven, safe, long term ESPsp


This is a new autosurf that has just been launched by the Admn of ESP ( The Admin is very well known in this Industry and is very well respected.

This is what the people wanted so he gave it to us. As you also know, I recommend (usually) only those autosurfs and surfs that are being run by well-known and trustworthy Admin, unless am testing one or another and then I tell you that up-front in this blog (like BigBangSurf... still not paying by the way, at least not paying me!).

This one, like ESP, runs exactly in the same way. That's what folks wanted. It will start at a fairly high ROI as fouls pour in the door and so now is the time to get some good profits. The programme is safe as it does not entirely depend on new spends coming in, in order to survive. My feeling is that this one will do well for quite a while and will outlive most surfs out there based on past performance.

QUOTE (from the site)


Tired of losing money in high risk, high roi sites?

EasyShareSP has a proven business model that offers members an opportunity to actually earn an online income in the safest way possible. EasyShareSP offers realistic returns and long term goals that no other program can guarantee. EasyShareSP is designed to help members earn the easy way right from their own homes. After registering an account and upgrading (purchasing advertising packs), members can earn up to 10% daily (of their advertising packs) by simply clicking on the surf button and viewing a number of websites just like watching T.V. commercials. At the end of the day members who have viewed the required number of sites will have their accounts credited (12 am server time). Once earnings have appeared members have the option of withdrawing their earnings to their payment processors or compounding their earnings (meaning to purchase more advertising packs using earnings). Upgraded members can also earn 5% referral commissions from their upgraded downlines. An upgrade will finally expire once a total of 120% has been earned on that upgrade.

The majority of surf programs fail simply because they run out of funds to pay their members. Those kinds of program are doomed once outgoing funds begin to exceed incoming funds.

Here at EasyShareSP, that will never happen because the system is designed to equally divide a percentage of earnings to members based on incoming funds. This means members will continue to receive a maximum of 10% daily as long as there are enough funds to maintain that percentage.

If, for example, there is a decline in incoming funds the system will automatically adjust the daily percentage of member's earnings based on the available funds to make sure that there is enough for every member to receive payment without putting any strain on the program. This kind of system allows a program to last indefinitely and run smoothly; and most importantly EVERYONE will get paid.

Am stupefied over this!

You know? It is quite astonishing to me how certain folks get so affronted, in their minds, that they will never speak to you again!

Have you had that experience? Am sure you have. And myself as well.

A while back I denegrated a certain blogger by saying some negative things about his blog post, and how it was silly and not serious.

Well, from then on? He quit posting in my blog.. right thereafter. Forever more. No matter how many good posts I made in his blog. And it continues.

I just don't understand that behaviour from someone with so much experience! Holding on to past grievances, even when I appologized!

Wow. Still cannot fathom the ego! Because ego is what it is. But I have been friendly with him, in his own blog posts.... but never an answer or a word.

Am stupefied! That a man of that age can still hold things against someone! That was said only once! Can you appreciate that? Am sure you can.

Perhaps some of your friends and neighbors are like that. It's like you really did not know them! Ok. Am letting it go right now.

4th Totally Passive Opp added

Totally Passive Opps: the first two are now suspended as I indicated yesterday. The third I've dropped and so the 4th replaces the 3rd. From now on when I say ...the third totally passive opp, I mean the one that's paying. I can't mention the name yet, not until they open to the public.

And now... drum roll.... I have been apprised of the 4th totally passive opp: Yep, not Guradian EG. One of my readers, and a blogger himself, told me about it last night and I researched it this morning. I like it! Now... this is a Managed ForEx group. I told you earlier I lost 8K with Managed Forex Groups. The key reason for that was that my partner went from one promising trader to another, then another, then another. Each one lost our money and util it was all gone. An unfortunate string of circumstances.

I like RFI because their strategy is entirely different. It's about outsourcing to a number of ForEx traders who all use independent and dissimilar strategies to trade, thus spreading the risk. All of that is well-explained on their About Us page. Do read that before you join (for free)

Another thing I like about this outfit is that there is no fee for withdrawing your money. And they return your principal back to you at the end of the contract, so that's even more profit for you.

But how are they faring during this economic downturn? Read for yourself, below. Finally they take AlertPay, PerfectMoney, and Liberty Reserve (you can start with ten bucks). Oh and once you have made your deposit, click on the Compounding link up top and change that to whatever you wish. I myself will compound at 100% for a while. Enjoy!

This looks like a fun one. An HYIP Manager script (time-proven, no bugs).

Pay Processors: Liberty Reserve, Perfect Money and StrictPay. Wow. I don't have that much in any of those. Maybe in LR. But you can also deposit money into StrictPay from SolidTrustPay (you do have to remember your access code, which you set up the first time you signed up with StrictPay).

The plans are pretty simple, you can see them on the front page. This is a classic HYIP. By the way, the column that says Profit? It's really ROI.

I did not simply find this one on the 'net nor received any kind of e-mail. I was introduced to this one through some contacts that I trust. So am playing in this one.

Have a closer look and then decide.

ADDENDUM Friday Feb. 6th: They've added AlertPay! Great! Just a few technical issues though this morning. Should be resolved some time during the day. I know a lot of folks are waiting to use AlertPay.
