In a previous post I talked about making money with online gaming. Well, plain old static HTML pages won’t work with a gaming site. It has to have a rich user experience. It’s needs to provide user interactivity. In fact, the website needs to have as close as possible to the look and feel of a real desktop application.
Web 2.0 technology to the rescue. It is a revolution that is here to stay. With it you can provide the interactivity your users deserve. Learn about technologies such as XML, Soap, WSD / WSDL, RDF, and of course AJAX (made famous by Google).
- to make cream filled with chocolates and elaborate cake decoration.
- to make a flat base for a wedding cake
- as a substituted for chocolate as a covering on candies.
- as a mock white chocolate or a mixture of cocoa and fondant can be made to look like mock chocolate.
- as a dip for cherries, and fruits etc. If these fruits are dipped in chocolate fondant it solidifies to form an outer hard shell.
There are many more recipes with chocolate fondant. These are only a few example uses of chocolate fondant.
How is fondant made? The simplest form of fondant can be made by cooking sugar and water. It is then cooled slightly, and stirred or beaten until it is an opaque mass of creamy consistency. Usually glucose is added to prevent it from graining while cooking. Corn syrup is the most commonly used form of glucose. The fondant usually solidifies after it cools, but it can be liquefied with heating. Fondant chocolate has become the standard for modern, high-quality chocolate because it is extremely smooth and palatable.

We haven’t heard too much about Colin Powell in the news lately. Yes he was former Secretary of State. However he made his name in the United States Army as a professional soldier. He achieved the rank of General and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Some notable events during his tour of duty as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff includes the First Persian Gulf War. Mr. Powell was involved in the decision to invade Iraq for the Second Gulf War. He is famous for going to the United Nations to attempt to get their buyin for the invasion of Iraq.
So what has Colin Powell been up to lately. It’s been pretty quiet. He been working behind the scenes quite a bit. Apparently, Mr. Powell has taken an interest in the world of Venture Capitalism. Colin is a strategic limited partner of KPCB.
Not everything is rosy for Mr. Powell. There are many people out to criticized him. For example, in this article his is called a disgrace. So what is your take. I would definitely like to hear your feedback.

I started doing some searches on the Internet, and came across a type of service called Insurance Marketing. It’s a professional service that helps insurance agents market their products, and themselves as upstanding, reputable insurance agents in their community. This is achieved by providing insurance agents will high quality leads. With high quality leads, insurance agents that sale life insurance, auto insurance, and home insurance have performed miracles.
After I did some research, and read some great reviews about Insurance Marketing, I told my sister to sign up at QuotesAuction.com. They are the leading insurance provider that provide quality real time insurance leads.

Since we are already writing about chocolate, there is no reason why we cannot write reviews, and not get paid extra. We will post reviews related to the topic of chocolate. We are going to have some blog ads, but no to the extent we have seen in other blogs.
This is strictly for a good cause. In fact, my nephew has been working for free running this blog and other blogs. I would like to pay him for his hard work. He has been gracious enough to run all the technical stuff.
When we came across PayPerPost on another blog , I discussed this with Nick, and Nicole. They both said go for it. So we signed for an account on PayPerPost, and hopefully we can write some great reviews, and make money to help with the cause.
Of course, feel free to sign up with PayPerPost. Everybody can make extra money as well.
