The Fine Print

Have you seen these ads from car dealers where they shout you can buy used cars for $99 down and $99 a month? The the announcer then says, "Choose from sedans, sportscars, SUVs, pickups, Fords, Chevrolets, Toyotas, Hondas and more. Just $99 down and $99 a month."

While he is rattling off all these details there the fine print disclaimers that shows for 5 seconds on the bottom 10% of the screen.

$99 special is limited to Stock #43561, subject to previous
sale. Offer may be withdrawn at any time. With approved credit. $99 a month
is for first 4 months, thereafter payment reverts to $240.00. Interest and
payments variable base on credit rating

The reason I bring this up is besides being one of the traps of the retail world. it is time for me to bring up the fine print of blogging. As you notice a have opted to have small ads on this page. So Google just sent me notice to publish the following privacy notice. So here is the fine print

About Me

My photo
Arkansas, United States
I and my wife of 30+ years have enjoyed many adventures together. One of those is the love of crafting. A few years back I discovered two of my favorite activities: Photography and Jewelry Designing. In 2006, while delegates for The Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses, we visited Paris and Hamburg. One of our side trips took us to the Home and Gardens of Charles Monet. There in the gardens I dicovered the inner peace of enjoying, God's wonderful creation and variety of flowers, through the lens of my Canon. In 2007, while recovering from surgery, My wife took me with her to Hobby Lobby and I decided Jewelry making was a way to explore my desire to do something artistic while sitting in a recliner. So, that is why now that I have semi-retired and the kid are grown, I persue these activities and relax in my studio. Together we raised four sons and now enjoy visiting with our grandson.
