The old days

Reminiscing about the old days (2009), waiting for warmer weather (hopefully this weekend, but I may have jinxed it with my tweets)...

2009 was my most active birding year... ]I started using ebird half way through the year, and it's almost comical to look back at just HOW MUCH I was birding...

Seems like a lot! The crazy part was, I didn't ebird everytime I went birding (just the highlights) AND I didn't ebird sightings from work-related surveys (I was doing bird surveys ~5 days per week throughout the fall...) Most of these are before/after work surveys or stops while driving to and from work locations....

It was a different time!

    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
