Registered Users/Anonymous Comments And The June 21 2013 Blog Carnival Of Christian Family Information Exchange

Welcome and thank you for reading. It's starting to slow down a bit around here as we get into the summer time. However, I did received a couple of e-mails this week that left me confused and needing more information.  The jest of the e-mails were in response to me turning back off the ' post anonymously' setting.   First allow me to voice why I thought it was a good ides to do so. If and when one looks down the list of comments on our blog they will only see anonymous comments. They were the most 'non-spamming' types of comments. I have deleted, over the year, many more with no content only url's to other shops to buy unmentionable items. Many comments I allowed were sketchy at best. I don't have a problem with offering other links to our customers. However, I can't imagine why any business owner would want to go by the name 'anonymous'. Why? It just reeks of scam and underhanded dealing. I am not making any accusations, just pointing out that the way some do their comments,  looks to professional business-persons as negative. I will also state that on any blog on the net, if it has more anonymous comments than registered user comments that blog is on it's way down! Until proven wrong I firmly believe that multiple anonymous comments frightens regular folks and business-people away. And...That is the complete opposite of what I want! 

So if you our regular, large Christian families agree with me, may I a small favor of you? Just as anonymous comments push our regular people away, the opposite must also be true.  Or so I hope.  If everyone of you would take just a moment to jot down a small comment good-or-bad then the majority of comments would be from registered users and the anonymous folks will either hit the road or better yet, become working members of our community!

I think the reason why some folks aren't comfortable with leaving a comment is that they fear they will get a ton of junk e-mail. Firstly, OLIN will not ever email a customer because of a comment. The reason for the comment area is to develop aggressive debates and that is where, if any where, we will leave a comment to a posted comment. Secondly, there are a couple of ways to handle getting spam mail. One way is to always 'unsubscribe' to any junk mail right away the moment you receive it. Even bad guys don't need any troubles and most times will simply do as you ask. The better way I think is to go and open another email box and use it for posting comments and the like. If and when it becomes overfull with junk, delete it and create another 'junk email box'. Lastly, For the coming weekend, I will send, via your email address stated in the comments, a free gift to every registered user comment, short and/or long, nice/or not, doesn't matter I will be sure to send you a little something for helping me out. Is that agreeable with everyone? I sure hope so.

Lastly, before I get to the carnival. I truly feel that we need to re-establish or maybe even start a better dialogue. I must admit that some times I'm not sure on an issue or title and just forge ahead hoping for the best! I would much better like to have you write to me as often as you wished. Any subject, concern, opinion, or complaint.  If your homeschool kids are in need of this or that, tell me and I will find it for you. I have many resources at my disposal and would love to be of any assistant. If you have been looking for certain title and keep finding it priced way more than you want to pay, let me know and let's see if I can help you out. Need some help putting together a book or a new journal let me assist you any way I can. Your Kids need a book report in two days and the story is four hundred pages long and that's just by coincidence how many pages they haven't red yet.   I will attempt to help you the parent with some key points that you can coach to your child THIS TIME ONLY! As you can see I will be available for many ways to assist you, my regular customers-friends. If you want to write an introduction to a Friday blog carnival, Okay we can do that too! There are many resources you aren't using to make your life better and your children smarter. Try me out, if I fail at least I went down in trying! How many of you remember all the times I've asked for articles from Christian teens and grand-parents as well as our regular parents? The number is too high to remember, however, I have asked and haven't received much response as of yet. Most schools and homeschools have their children doing three or four book-reports a year. Without leaving your comfortable home, I have many FREE entire books in e-book form. I also said that I would speak with anyone's teacher and attempt to have them grant 'extra credit' to the student who submitted an article for our blog carnival. I will still do so, don't let it go to waste, use it if necessary. Let's start a whole new dialogue of assistance and resources will flow your way. thank you all for your business and support!  May God bless and keep you and yours always close to Him for comfort and protection!

Now here is your June 21 2013 Blog Carnival Of Christian Family Information Exchange. I only ask that you folks who wrote to informed us, and the folks who read and were moved by it to, please do keep it up! How's that for confusing? I should say that you should make it a habit as many have already, to have a quiet time with you children Saturday morning. Grab some coffee, hot chocolate and a throw if needed and cuddle up and read these blog carnivals together as a family! Many great discussions and friendly debates will follow some may NOT have ever arose to the surface without the time spend together with the carnival, and all that for FREE! What a deal! God bless!

Bring Back Dinner Parties And The June 14 2013 Blog Carnival Of Christian Family Information Exchange

Hello and welcome, thank you for reading! We at OLIN hope you and yours are having a fun, yet productive, summer. This week I came across something that I know you all will enjoy. Back, way, way back when I was in college we first began having, 'How To Host A Murder Mystery' dinner parties. We would all dress as our character, arrange to have cooks and servers and it usually lasted several hours. It was the prefect way to spend a Saturday night in my opinion! This week I was able to locate a company offering the 'host package' as one download pack for a more than reasonable price! Any of you who enjoy playing any of those, 'who done it' and/or Clue mystery type games will love this! I strongly recommend that you get this pack right away and begin planning your dinner party!

The pack I am recommending has everything need to host the most memorable dinner party ever. You start by assigning each of your guests a character. One really good extra that isn't in this pack, but it comes from our experience, is to also invite cooks and servers. Depending on how fancy your menu will be, the cooks will be responsible for either 'plating' the food or just finishing those last minute item's. Of course you can have your cooks actually cook the entire meal, it's your choice and the sky really is the limit. Just for information purposes, in college we once had a party that was cold cuts and chips! It's your party do as you wish. Why cooks and servers? You are just like everyone else in that you have friends who would love to watch you and your guest 'play' the game but wouldn't ever think about being a character. So we invented the need for cooks and server for these type of friends. Usually, these type of people love serving and so on almost as much as real servers and they can still follow along with the enjoyment of the game as they serve or cook. Depending on the type of party you have, you decide early on if there is to be alcohol or not. It's your party and your home. Again, back in college we had several of each and they all were just as enjoyable as the counterpart.

Because this package is one download you will have everything needed including the complete 'host guide' and 'character guides' along with 'character name tags'. These are important for their set the stage and tone. The host guide offers some good points be sure to read these. The host is the only person who knows all the details about what is going to happen. This guide will assist the host with moving the game along, when to switch to the next round, what is to be revealed each round and general conversation topics. Included with this is suggestions for meals and drinks. It’s your step-by-step guide to throwing an amazing dinner party! The host for this event (probably you) is key to making sure everything happens when it should. The host will also get into character and have fun with the rest of the group.

Lastly and probably the most important item is the, 'invitation template' that comes with the package. At least a week before the event, you will send out invitations via email to everyone attending as a character, cook or server. It will include information about their character, what they should wear, and how to act. All you need to do is choose the person who would fit best with the character, and add the name on the 'invitation template' and send it off! Everything is now taken care of! Your amazing dinner party is all set and the fun is about to begin!

Host a Murder Mystery Dinner Party Now on to a more obscure but related subject. After last week's carnival I received emails stating that I was bring down the entire mood of the carnival with my personal revelations about my health.  I am not sure if I agree however I did promise those folks to liven things up a bit this week with the recommendation of this dinner party game pack. Yes, I too believe that it 'feels' as though there is a dark cloud hanging over our heads! With all the bad news there is little if any good news. So for a moment allow the fun to flow and your guest will thank you for straightening out their over all mood. Remember, most people do much better and achieve much higher when they are at ease and not worried or pre-occupied with negative thoughts. Help your family and friends to achieve more just because they had a evening of fun and laughter at your dinner party!

I believe it's time in America to bring back affordable dinner parties that are big on enjoyment and small on expense! You won't believe just how affordable this entire package is! I have seen these types of games in stores for way too high a price. When we put this together, keeping the price low for struggling families, was job one. Remember, you really don't need to have a big fancy meal that costs too much! Depending on your finances you decide how much to spend and don't go crazy, the food is not the source of the evening's fun, the character interplay is!

Lastly, please allow me to give you one more recommendation. Why not have a family dinner parties with the kids and all! It will truly brighten the over all mood around your home! Regardless of what type of party you will have, I already know it will be fun and something you'll be wanting to do every so often. At least it had that effect on us. Put to bed all of today's worries. Better yet, you Christians need to do as Jesus told us to: place your worries and cares on Him and let them be! When you give your worry and cares to Jesus happiness and good times MUST flow your way! So plan your party and enjoy the evening with close friends and family over a nice (but NOT expensive) dinner. Your family and friend will be thanking you for organizing such a fun time to put all cares and worries away for just the one night! Simply click on the graphic of this package above and you will be taken to the details page to answer any questions and to place an order. This comes to you as a one time payment for Instant Access download! As all OLIN information eproducts, this also comes with a full sixty (60) day guarantee, so if I am lying and this isn't any fun, you get back every cent you paid with no questions or hassles! Plus if the price drops any lower,(I don't see this going lower but I do see it going for a bit more) you get the difference refunded to you! AND... Order now and receive three (3) amazing, truly valuable bonuses! Seriously folks, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose except some crows-feet and upset stomachs! Isn't it time you had more fun into your home and life? Order now then!
