Friday Random Links and a Promotion or Two

Good Morning,

Friday is here and the weekend is sneaking up on me.  

Once in a while I come across something that looks interesting or useful, and since most of us have a limited or extremely tight budget these days free stuff is always good.

Wix is a free on-line web site builder.  They also offer "Premium" accounts that I would guess are very expensive as there are no fees listed anywhere.  Free sites may include "Wix ads".

Example site: Brooklyn Bead Goddess

Yolasite is also a free website builder, they offer domains, and other services as well, have a pricing guide and have a 1-800 customer service / help line and claim Free Sites are also Ad-free.  Check out other offerings on the Features page.

Example site: Studio RGC  - Ralph's Wax

Next weekend is the Treasure Valley Flea Market, and the last one of 2012. The Alchemists Vessel will be in attendance.  More about the Market will be posted next week.  Come on down and get some Holiday shopping done or just look around for fun.  Admission is $2.00.

As many of us here out West have been watching the news, and the devastation that has taken place along the East Coast there are some things that you can do to help.

Red Cross - Hurricane Sandy Donations

You can donate $10.00 with your phone, you can donate via iTunes (which is weird), and you can find out what's going on in your local area for the Disaster Relief.  You can donate to a general fund (a much better idea), or earmark the donation for Hurricane Sandy or give blood at one of you local banks as the Red Cross is sorely in need.

You may also want to check out your local charities, and see if they are not taking, clothes, blankets, toys, household items for those in need and affected by Hurricane Sandy.

St. Vicent DePaul's
Salvation Army - donation page, there are links at the bottom for other ways to help.

Thank you for stopping in and having a read.

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant weekend.
