We now pause for a brief commercial announcement

Two of them, actually.

1. The tip jar will be on the counter through January 1

A big virtual smooch to the 9 generous readers who have hit PayPal button and the 2 faithful supporters who’ve snailed donations this month. Thanks to you, Old Blue will get her tires and the clinic will get another payment toward September’s Infamous Medical Procedure.

As I said before, if there’s another blog out there that you like as much this one and the blogger is in bad straits, by all means donate to them, not me. If you’re broke, then take care of you and yours first, and best of luck to you. Me, I’m a little squeaky and like a lot of you may face some economizing in the new year. But life is good.

Still, should you want to drop something in the tip jar … here’s your opportunity. I’ll continue to post the PayPal button through next Saturday, then will leave you alone.


2. Amazon Prime Video Membership — 30-day free trial

Between now and January 10, if you use the link below to sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime Video, I earn $10. Even if you quit during the free trial period, it’s $10 to me. (That’s a lot in Amazon terms; normally it would require a purchase of about $145 to earn that big a commission.)

Here’s the link: Amazon Prime Video 30-Day Free Trial

Note that while this is being promoted as “Amazon Prime Video”, it’s actually Amazon Prime — complete with free two-day shipping, and free Kindle book lending. Music streaming, too. Amazon just promotes different features (with different bounties paid) at various times. The link above drops you onto a “Prime Video” landing page and is the only one currently paying the Big Bux to associates.

Prime is a wonderful service. I got it as a gift and really enjoy both the fast, free shipping and the ability to gobble up Amazon’s wonderful new series. I get a lot out of Prime without even taking advantage of half its benefits. If you frequent Amazon … er, frequently, you will, too.

Anyhow, that’s it for the commercial announcements. I’ll ping you with links a few more times, but once this promo is done, you can return to a commercial-free Living Freedom experience with my thanks.

    Just curious… what is this kindle book “lending” thing? Do they self destruct on your reader after a while? šŸ™‚ Or do you have to read them on line? I get books for my kindle app on the tablet occasionally, but I seldom pay more than a dollar or two. I don’t tend to read them very soon, however, saving them for times when I travel or don’t have anything else to read right away.

    I looked at it, Claire, and was fairly astonished to see that Amazon will allow me to “borrow” one book a month. Good grief, I read between five and seven books a WEEK. šŸ™‚ I wouldn’t use anything else offered.

    I asked at the library here, and I can “borrow” as many e-books (anything any library in the state has) as I want at no charge. I forgot to ask if they self destruct if overdue. LOL And I’m going to try it because I’m seriously curious just how one “returns” an electronic file…

    Sticking with the library and other ways to get books for now.
