I Should Learn to Shut Up...

Back in April, I made an apology to everyone involved with the Foundation and it's workings. Little did I realize then I would be repeating myself a second time. But, here we are. I will spare you the repetitive rhetoric and simply say "I an very sorry for the many days between posts".

There has been one new submission to the Book Club during the month of May:

Madam Bovary By Gustave Flaubert - Reviewer: Irise Rain

ADSENSE PROGRAM

On May 1, 2010 - AdSense released $103.86 and deposited that amount into the TPF bank account on May 25th. On June 9th, $100.00 was transferred to the TPF PayPal account. The current TPF bank account contains $13.86 with another AdSense payment to be deposited very soon.

AMAZON ASSOCIATES PROGRAM

During the months of May and June, no one purchased anything. So, no money in the TPF coffers this time around.

Anyway, stay tuned as another update is forthcoming. Yup, more loans and money talk. But, to pass the time, please enjoy this little concert by Los Lobos (from Los Lobos Goes Disney):

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

Thank you for stopping by and that's just my two cents worth...
