    Google Santa Was Here
    Monday UPS delivered a gift wrapped box to me. I was very busy so I did not bother to open it or even look to see where it came from.

    Tuesday afternoon, I noticed it still sitting on my credenza and saw that it was from Google. I had gotten a Christmas gift from them last year, and earlier this year got a nice little present from them as well, so I was curious to see what it was. They always send something unique / useful.

    To my surprise it was a desk top Photo Frame MP 3, MP4 player with digital record feature complete with batteries, ac adapter, usb and a nice card. Class act that bunch at Google! Now if only the other SE's would produce quality traffic and send gifts each year, I'd save a bundle on Christmas shopping! Thanks Google.

    Yep, they are a bunch of pros there Michael. Last year was the cool tech travel kit and this year the photo frame. At least they show their loyal advertisers that they are noticed and appreciated... cool indeed.

    I'll probably get a chunk of usb-capable coal from Google this year. Haven't spent a cent on adwords since early July (and my account actually says I owe them 1.19, oh well).

    No goodies for me this year, I guess.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    My favorite thing of all was the box!

    I suppose the expensive frame was nice too though

    They sent me a Volvo! I'm not sure how to drive it. I'm use to Fords, but I guess it's a Ford too!

    Look out for me, I'm going to be able to sneak up on PETA People and run over them

    I have spent quite a bit of money with them again this year and once again all I got from them was charged for last months advertising! *LOL*

    I wrote G to thank them for the photo frame tonight. I also made them an offer to save them some money....

    I offered to return my photo frame in exchange for top 3 positioning for my highest converting keywords. I'm dying to see if they bite!!

    Gosh, here I thought I was lucky in finally reaching three major milestones with Google.

    I didn't get a gift

    Anyone know exactly how they organize their naughty/nice list?

    Gosh, that must be nice.

    I don't have any claim-to-fame relatives

    I'm so jealous of the Google kin.
