Hey Y’all!
I’m having a focus group on Thursday, April 17th from 7-10 PM, I would love it if you would come and share your opinions about what sex-positive women and couples want (and will use) on the internet.
I’m working at a huge personals and hookup site, and my new assignment is in Women’s Marketing, and finding out more about what ladies want from a personals site. The site has a bounty of men, women seeking women and couples seeking women. What’s needed now are more of the women they are all seeking online. They have a huge male enrollment, for sure. It's set up well for its original target market.
I want to give them feedback on making it more functional and user-friendly to women.
Please join me on April 17th for our Women’s Focus Group, and tell it like it is.
We’ll be all ready to pamper you and pick your cute lil brain with
-Free drinks
-Free boudoir photography from a professional photographer (bring a sexy outfit, or choose something from our closet of drape-y and deepcut get-ups)
-Free upgrades to Silver level membership on our site. A silver membership is worth $24.95/month, but you’ll get one free and open-ended. Use it to:
* send and receive emails
* use the site’s IM (check people out, without giving out your Yahoo or Messenger IM info)
* play on webcam (again, you play safer because you're not giving out your personal info)
* if you choose, you can also make your profile discreet. A discreet profile will only allow your pics to be seen by those on your friend's list (keep your boss from knowing you're a pervert, if you so choose).
* I can provide ad-writing help and photo verification. Photo verification proves that the person looks like the pics they have online (see, this woulda been helpful for my date last week, who was NOT photo-verified and who looked nothing like his pics. I’m still learning from my mistakes…let me help you avoid them!)
Couples are more than welcome, and please forward this email far and wide. We have a huge space in San Francisco for this, and I’d love to fill it with people like us.
If you’re a Woman or Couple, please contact me at
dixie.fling [at]
to RSVP. I’ll send you details ….we’ll be adding to the evening’s line-up as we get closer to the event, and to what you get for being our kind of gal!
THANK YOU, and please email me ASAP at dixie.fling [at] to RSVP.

How Obama, Clinton & Nader are part of the cover-up. FREE. Wheel chair accessible.

detail the bloody Pentagon deals.

You tube: Paul8kangas
Bush, Sr. killed JFK because JFK saved Cuba from the CIA invasion.
Bush stole the 68 elections, but Democrats never complain about that.
JFK ordered troops out of Vietnam. This caused the CIA to shoot JFK,
so they could invade Vietnam. You tube: paul8kangas
Contact Paul: Videographer NEEDED for this event! paul8kangas at mac dot com 368 8581 Paul Kangas

We support a strike by the soldiers. Did Bush sr. Kill JFK? How does that effect the election 2008?
My name is Paul Kangas. I am the Vice President for Veteran for Peace.
It will take a strike by
front line GI's, as happened in Vietnam & during WWI to stop this war.
We need to reach out to young boys, age 9 & recruit them into the anti-war movement. I joined the peace movement when I was age 9.
Then I was drafted. In the Navy, at age 19 in 1961, I helped organize a strike against the Bay of Pigs. Thanks of President Kennedy, the invasion of Cuba was stopped. After than, I got orders to go to Vietnam in 1963. Again I refused to go to war. I was then sent to Iceland for a year of
punishment duty. Kennedy then ordered all US troops out of Vietnam, Executive Order 263. Bush then killed JFK.
There was a movie made about strikes by front line troops, in WWI, called Merry Christmas. Have you seen the movie? Most vets have seen the movie. It is quite powerful.
Meet Paul Kangas, on 4-23-08, Herbst Theater, Rm 215, 401 VanNess & McAllister, 6pm, slideshow on the Bay of Pigs, the JFK assassination & the 2008 election.
Hear Paul Thur 4-3-08, KPOO, 89 fm, 1pm on the King assassination & the 2008 election & why neither Obama nor Clinton can stop this war, unless them want to be assassinated.
We support a strike by the soldiers. Paul Kangas, You tube: paul8kangas

Thu Apr 24 Earth on the Balance Sheet: Making Sustainability Real
One Planet Budgeting: Making Sustainability Real with the Ecological Footprint
Are we running out of planet? Was Thomas Malthus wrong? Do economies
self-correct or self-destruct when they operate as if resources were
limitless? The Ecological Footprint explores these questions, and
provides the tools to answer them. Global Footprint Network Executive
Director Mathis Wackernagel will showcase applications from around the
world, showing how government agencies, NGOs, businesses, and cities
are making use of this tool to address issues of sustainability.
Wackernagel will discuss the way, just as financial accounting tracks
economic health, measures like the Footprint can help us manage our
ecological balance sheet and develop policies that protect rather than
deplete our natural capital.
Making Sustainability Real in a Business Environment
Your business recycles, has switched to renewable energy and compact
fluorescents--now what? How do businesses incorporate sustainability
practices that engage their employees, customers, clients, and
stakeholders in a meaningful and proactive way? Several case studies of
businesses that have used ClimatePartner's processes will be examined
to show that sound sustainability practices are not only good for the
planet, but good for business, too.
6:30-7:00pm Doors open and registration
7:00-8:15pm Program starts
6:30-7:15pm Speakers: Mathis Wackernagel, Founder & Executive Director of Ecological Footprint Network
