Say, are you trying to tell me something?

The other day I got a letter from my mother containing a couple hundred bucks and a note saying that she thought it would be nice for me to have my house professionally cleaned. Now, my mother can be pretty subtle so there's probably some kind of message here. I can't see it though, I think that she really thought I would enjoy receiving this service. The fact that my parents are coming out here for Christmas is purely coincidental I am sure.

No matter, the fact is that I am happy to have it done. As some of my friends will probably confirm in the comments section, I have a more tolerant view of when something absolutely NEEDS to be cleaned than most. Oh well, it's not like I have lots of visitors. Of course, it may be that I don't have a lot of visitors because my house is messy. Chicken or the egg, I guess.

Tell ya what, guy. Break out your owners manual on the vacuum cleaner, broom, mop, dust rag, bowl cleaner, etc........spend a day getting intimate with all those organisms sharing your living space.

Now, take that money and stock the bar. THAT's why you haven't had any visitors, booze!

As always, your mom is too funny..

And yes, your place is definitely more inhabited than I could tolerate at my current age. I warn you, having other people clean your house is addictive. I feed the habit every other week because well it's cheap and they find dirt places I'd never even think to look.

When I first started dating I as surprised at how many men had clean houses and was feeling like I was incompetent and unable to keep up. Then I found out that they have it cleaned every other week. I still try to do it myself...don't want people to know my stuff.

I'd protest. Send the money to me. You'll be a better person for it.

I say you blow your new found monies in Vegas and screw cleaning the house.
If there was no direct stipulation that the money had to be used on a cleaning service... then no harm no foul.

or... how bout getting a nice hotel room for them for a couple of days just to give you the break.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

I think that guy at Tip Top Equities has a point.

So, when are you going to clean the place so you will have time to write a new entry in your blog?
