1. Dear Des, thanks! Your advice has always been of help…I discovered something that you may want to share with your audience…there is this new site – My Hire Site ( based on the concept of neighborhood hiring – here one can earn by hiring out things that are not in use at the moment. The site is like ebay, except that things are hired instead of purchased! After using this I realized that one ends up earning more by renting on an ongoing basis rather than a one time sale…plus you retain the ownership! 🙂
