    I am making $165 an hour working from home. i was greatly surprised at the same time as my neighbour advised me she changed into averaging $ninety five however I see the way it works now. I experience masses freedom now that i'm my non-public boss. that is what I do......

    For a time, great E A Poe(t) we present, either grasping the sands of our lives events, or watching them flow, but to answer your question, " is all that we see or seem, But a dream within a dream? " No, in the instant of standing on the shore watching, we defy eternity, we are, and the moment devolves into the dream of memory................worknet8

    Break through the wall!
    Find my dream!
    Help me to shatter this darkness,
    To smash this night,
    To break this shadow
    Into a thousand lights of sun,
    Into a thousand whirling dreams
    Of sun! ........ excellent! ! !
