Private Independence FTU

Before I start the tutorial I have to put a plug in for a new free money site!
I got my first $2 bucks today from them after being there a week only!
Yes I bought a new tube!  Woot!!
You can join too, it's easy and free,
You only have to give them your PayPal e-mail...  everything else is up to you
You don't have to even give them your true name...
The "Surveys" are more like a poll than a survey and they are fun!
One of my true friends won one of the $50 daily drawings!!
She got me started hoping to win big too and I am hooked.
Join us!

Next I keep forgetting to share my blinkie...
Mindy Mae made it for me and I love it!!
As soon as I learn how to make one of them boxes with the code for you all, I will....
in the mean time here she is!
If you are in need of a fabulous Blinkie visit PSP Party Central for the Blinkie Service!!
