Paid Surveys

Women, we want to hear what you have to say about fashion! Click Here

Some of you may have noticed I have a second blog - actually, it was my first. I started Survey Scroll several months before OF MICE AND raMEN. The blog is kinda static with only 8 posts, intended to help those who would like to earn money from home participating in paid surveys.

Have I mentioned before that I'm an active survey taker? Now after more than a year's experience and with money in my pocket, I'm considered a 'pro' survey-taker which is why I'm posting this.

Nope, you won't get rich but seriously, who else will reward you for sitting on your butt just clicking on buttons! Besides, you can fill up those forms while visiting blogs, watching TV, dropping EC etc.

Good Luck!

Celebrities And Their Siblings

Q. What's worse than being driven crazy by an unfamiliar song on repeat that's stuck in your head all day?
A. A familiar face you can't put your finger on that's keeping you awake all night!

You swear you know that face and voice in that movie, yet everyone tells you the actor/actress you think you recognized is not the one. You've missed the part where the cast is introduced and the part where the credits roll is not aired. You can't do what you do best - google for info 'cos your ISP is down. You toss and turn in bed all night until finally, you get an internet connection and find the identity of the face that tormented you - the sibling of the actor/actress you thought you recognized .
Last night, the face I couldn't shake off was Luke Wilson, brother of Owen Wilson!!

Tell me I'm not unhinged. You've experienced this - haven't you?!!!

Ben and Casey Afleck

Dean and Roger Cain

Mark, Donnie and James Wahlberg

Owen, Luke and Andrew Wilson

Beyoncé AND Solange Knowles

Paris and Nicky Hilton

Nicole and Antonia Kidman

Alexa Meade - Acrylic On Flesh

While most artists use acrylic paints to create portraits of people on canvas, Alexa Meade does quite the opposite. She uses her subjects as her canvas, paints them, then photographs them so they appear to be a part of the painting; transforming 3 dimensional space into a 2 dimensional plane!

Timmy on the Metro

Her subjects look like escaped characters of a painting!

Ironically, it was yoga that screwed my back a couple of years ago in a feeble attempt to strike the 'wheel' pose.
The pain was not excruciating but I ended up with chronic lower back pain for quite some time. I hated the thought of physiotherapy and since the pain was tolerable, I endured it for more than 2 years. The pain gradually worsened. I had difficulty getting up after sitting for a long period of time. It was pretty embarrassing especially after a meal in a restaurant.The final straw was when a pally noticed that I was walking 'funny'. I hunched like an old lady. The thought of having to use a traction or surgery totally freaked me out and so I decided to see a chiropractor.
The first session was SCARY! Although it wasn't painful, I almost fainted in fear when I heard the cracking and popping noises as my jammed spinal column was adjusted. Flashes of my spine snapping into two went through my head! But after the third session, I was actually enjoying the sounds. Each 'pop' or 'crack' was music to my ears - it was the sound of my pain going away.
After the tenth session, my back was almost as good as new. It was liberating to be able to get up from a chair without causing a scene and to be able to do all the little things we take for granted.
Visiting the chiropractor was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life.

Don't let pain be the only reason to visit a chiropractor. Chiropractic releases deep stress within your body/mind so you'll function better, permitting your natural healing ability, your inner healer, to function better.
That's why nearly every condition to which the flesh is heir has responded to chiropractic including ear infections, asthma, allergies, colic, bed-wetting, hearing problems, skin conditions, digestive and menstrual problems, infertility, spine and nerve pain, colds and flu, headache, sciatica, emotional and neurological conditions and many, many others.


In light of what's known about CTS, anyone suffering from it should see a chiropractor to ensure that their spine is free of spinal subluxations. A chiropractic spinal adjustment may be the difference between a pain-free wrist or surgery!


Menstrual & Premenstrual Problems
Many women who have suffered from a wide variety of pelvic, and gynaecological conditions including pain, PMS, bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunctions have discovered the natural benefits of chiropractic.

For over a century, numerous case studies have been highlighting the fact that women who have been branded "infertile" or given a limited chance of ever becoming pregnant (even with in vitro fertilization) have been able to conceive, carry to term and deliver a healthy baby following chiropractic adjustments.

Over half of the hysterectomies performed each year in the US may be unnecessary. Few doctors warn their patients about the too common aftereffects of hysterectomy. Before any woman submits to this potentially damaging operation, if possible, she should explore non-surgical alternatives.


Animal chiropractors' have many stories of pets scheduled to be "put to sleep" who were brought back to health after chiropractic adjustments. When dealing with life and death decisions, please bring your pet to a chiropractor for a second (or third) opinion.

Paul Lung

The following are not black and white photos but the incredible pencil drawings of 38 year-old graphic artist Paul Lung from Hong Kong. Paul spends up to 60 hours on these photorealistic sketches using only a 0.5 mm technical pencil and A2 paper.
