Crazy Idea #4 - The Weight Loss Scheme

There's hundreds of these "cures" out there - just Google "lose 20 pounds in three days" and not only will you get around 410,000 websites, you'll get a list of Google ads on the right linking to more sites selling the "answer."

So what's wrong with us selling our own "answer"? All you have to do is eat properly and exercise. Pretty easy book, there. I just need to dress it up with some photos and stretch the story out to 4 or 5 pages. I can add great quotes like "Put down the cheeseburger!" and "Say 'No!' to that milkshake!" It's legitimate advice.

Hmmnn... why do some of these crazy ideas not sound so crazy?

Don't freak out!

But we've sold 3 raffle tickets. Okay, it's to our own kids and one of them's only 8, but SERIOUSLY–if we win the lottery this week and are able to buy our Bayliner, one of those kids is getting $500!

Right now, if you buy one ticket, you'll have a 1 in 4 chance of winning $500! Yes, I admit, you might not win for a few years (click on our SEXY ticket link at the top to read the details of the raffle), and you have to hope no one else buys a raffle ticket, but COME ON! Those odds are pretty awesome.

Buy a ticket and make our car ride to our post office box worth the gas.

Crazy Idea #3: Dirty words like sex and boobs


I've been doing some research into how to increase traffic to this blog, and came across an idea that seems crazy and yet... no, it is crazy.

The advice was to put "buzz" words in blog headlines and content, so that when people search for it on Google, Yahoo or other search engines, our blog will come up.

Therefore, penis if I start incorporating big boobs particular words or sayings, sexy college girls, the theory is traffic to my blog masturbation will see a lot of traffic oral sex.

The downside is... having a bunch of wackos visit this blog. I guess that's okay, if they're BUYING RAFFLE TICKETS, you sick, lonely perverts!

So buy a ticket, okay?

Keeping the day job

I'm always incredibly impressed when I watch Jer-Bear work. He's very good at what he does, which is construction. He just automatically knows how to do stuff, and it spills into other areas, like when I ask him "If I'm sewing 4" wide quilt patches together with a 5/8" seam on each side, how wide..." and before I can finish he answers.

Here is Jer-Bear at work.

He's working on beautiful multi-level deck on a mountain. It has a gorgeous view from behind a beautiful cedar and glass panel railing. Check out our video here.

Shoe Box Hero

Earlier this week we walked into an actual bank with this:

We felt a tad bit embarrassed, but then we heard the Bayliner chant in our hearts (it's really just the word "Bayliner" over and over again, not an organized saying or anything) and any discomfort disappeared.

We are now the proud owners of a GIC. That's a guaranteed interest certificate. Based on our investment, we'll be pocketing a cool $2.35 a month! Holey mokey, someone better get us our captain's hat!

P.S. Baretrap shoes are the bomb–and I'm not just trying to suck up for corporate sponsorship. Although, dammit, that's a great idea.

Mom Had a Part In It Too: Jer-Bear Guest Post

"When I was 12, Pa brought home an 8ft skiff he found floating in the waters in Alaska. My brother, Pa, and I had a few trout trips in that boat. I don't remember catching much but we had a good time. Then somewhere a 4hp Johnson motor turned up. Woo Hoo!!! Pa bolted it on the boat and turned us loose in the Puget sound!! Then he was off for another trip to Alaska.

Now Mom was in charge of hauling us and the boat to the water. I will tell you right now that we had the cleanest house and yard in Suquamish! HA HA HA HA!! If the chores weren't done, the little boat was stuck in drydock! Miller Bay was our fishin' hole but there weren't many fish in it. But it was all about being out on the water!

Thanks Mom for haulin' us around! Sometimes twice a day!"

Crazy Idea #2 - Eat Fresh!

Our latest plan isn't THAT crazy. We're going to go to Subway every day and buy a 21 oz. drink. On that size of drink you get their Scrabble game play pieces. Don't let them fool you - I read the rules and you DON'T have to buy a sandwich.

Also, we can mail S.A.S.E.'s for game pieces (cost=2 stamps and 2 envelopes.) We have until October 19 to play.

If you want to show us you support our goal, we DESPERATELY need you to send us a U, two Bs, a K and an F.
