Thank you so much to all of you who sent in recommendations for my impending move this Fall to NY.  Being from Montana originally I am not averse to winter weather, in fact I like it quite it a bit more than hot weather.  NYC is one of my favoritest cities in the US and it will be quite thrilling to be able to ‘commute’ into the city whenever I so desire.  You’ll find me and my laptop in Central park!  Some of you pointed out the tax differences between the two areas – Seattle and NY…if you have further details about that I would love to hear it. (huge thanks to Marcellino who has already done some research for me in this area!)  I am wondering if living in CT is a smarter tax choice…hhhmmm?

OSI Rock Stars had a great write-up on Deal4It’s blog this morning (thanks Ty!) – check it out: http://blog.deal4it.com/blog/2008/4/8/osi-rock-stars-webinar.html  And don’t forget to grab your Rock Star 30-day free trial for this powerful tool ASAP…not sure how much longer they will be offering it.  www.Deal4It.com/rockstar  I’m excited to be able to put this great widget into my listings as I update my Store – so easy when it is in a template.

Only two days left to sign up for the Classified Ad Part 1 class.  eBay sellers are going crazy over this hidden marketing gem on eBay – and I’ll be teaching you how to utilize every opportunity (and loophole!).  Information is available on the Rock Star site at http://osirockstars.com/topic.php?id=288&replies=16
