    Well, not really, but it's only 9 miles from here! Sure feels like it today in Michigan.

    Hi all -
    After working on MTurk for 5 months now and reading this forum just as long, I figured it's time to stop lurking!

    I found MTurk after doing work on MintVine and Swagbucks - both of which I got pretty disgusted with. So when I started on MTurk, I was just thrilled. I've had some chronic health problems and lost my job quite some time ago due to a bad back, and to start bringing in enough money to take better care of myself is wonderful. I'm really grateful.

    My Aussie Daisy is happy - it means better treats and a few new toys now and then!

    I've got questions, but I'll post them in the dailies - in the meantime, hi everybody! Hope you're all having a great 4th!
    (Correction - I put the questions under "Help")

    Welcome! Glad you stopped lurking and finally decided to join us here. We won't bite - at least, not most of us :blep:.

    Your story sounds eerily similar to mine! If you ever want to chat or have any questions, feel free to pm me, or any other mentor (identified by the nifty mentor banner under their avatar).

    And Daisy is absolutely adorable! How old is she? I have an Aussie myself named Olive. She's 2 years old and crazy, but adorable!

    Happy turking!

    Thanks so much for the welcome!
    The eerie continues - Daisy is two as well! I suspect she and Olive would be partners in crime if they
    ever met. Daisy is still full of p and v, and I wouldn't have her any other way. She's kept me going, that's for sure.
    I didn't put my post under the dailies - I ended up putting it under "Help" 'cause that's sure what I need.
    I'll try and send a pm, basketcasey. Thank you!

    Thank you!! I hope you do really well here too!
    I'm really jazzed today - I "finally" downloaded MTurk Suite for Firefox, got it to work, and the hits just took off today! YAY!
