Its a start; that's if you count 12 minutes as a start.

For a seal it better be pretty slick.

Or maybe it only has to sound fishy.

What a bunch of losers have aswered this thread. Money is the last of my concern. 99.9% of the population spend the only real thing they have (+-80 yrs) chasing money and never realise the real gem is here and now. If you live for the moment you will have something Howard Hughes never had. Peace with oneself.It can't be bought. I'm a happy camper and seldom have $100 in my pocket. Go figure, while I enjoy my short stay.

A crazy old guy on a mooring near where I was moored lived on handouts and a little bit of income from cleaning windows. He couldn't afford propane or alcohol to cook on so he would collect old paint, remove the lid, throw a match in and cook on the flames. I did mention that he was crazy, didn't I?

I would spend my $1.85 on deodorant then I would walk to the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach for Sunday brunch! I am positive that I can charm a wealthy widow into a short cruise!

If you are only making 1.85 a month clubbing baby seals give me a call. I think I could get you at least $4.83 (before my comission)

I would choose the fist second option forge checks, especially if it is still a joint account
