I have now been on this email group for a little while and have
decided to keep it. I have not written an introduction yet, so here
My name is Jay Murphy and I am a nurse. Specifically I am a
registered nurse (rn) in an emergency department (ed). i live in
norco, california. for those who are not familiar with california;
norco is in the southern part of california between los angeles, and
san diego, located at the interchange between the 91 freeway and the
15 freeway. Norco is officially known as â€œhorsetown, usa,â€ we have no
sidewalks, and all of our houses have horse trials instead. by law,
each home must have at least Â¼ acre of land in order to support at
least one horse. it is said that in the old town of norco area, there
are more horses than there are people. each and every day we get to
wake up to the smell and sound of horses, goats, chickens, mules, and
other critters while officially in a city and not a rural area. i
canâ€™t think of a better place to live than here with the mild climate
(winter is at about 20-40 degrees at night with the days around 60 â€”
80 degrees.) Summer on the other hand is quite hot topping out at 112
degrees last September.
As all of us do, I have had some difficulty with finances of late and
made a commitment this year to reduce the outgo and increase the
income in order to give my life a little breathing room financially.
This email group is part of my commitment to save money. With
coupons, rebates, discounts, and freecycling I hope this can be a
better year. I am also looking for additional work at home stuff to
see if I can make any decent money that way too. I read the article
written recently and may be trying out some of them, but if anyone has
any actual knowledge and experience, I would be truly grateful for the
I am using MyPoints, and NetWinner right now and have had good
experiences with the former, none so far with the latter.
I am about 40 years old, married, with no children. (Yup, I am a
D.I.N.K.) Instead of children we have pets. Officially we have two
dogs, two cats, three horses, one goat, one duck, one peahen, two
cockatiels, to parakeets, a dozen fish (gold), and about 40 or so
chickens. Unofficially we also have a skunk, a gopher snake, a king
snake, a raccoon, and various other critters too. (Wifeâ€™s official
rule: If it enters our property alive or is on our property at all,
it is a pet and we canâ€™t eat it.) ïŠ
I do have lots of nieces and nephews that love to come over from the
actual city to see these very rare creatures we have as pets. Some
are even learning to ride them.
I love to pass out advice myself, especially if it has to do with
critters. So feel free to ask if you have any questions.
