I need a Canon 20D! I want a 1D MkII, but I know that is just a dream. I yearn for a 5D. But its gone beyond just wanting a 20D, even beyond yearning for a 20D, I need a 20D.

Now a 20D costs about £1000.00 with a kit lens and delivery included. I've decided to try and moneytise my blog a little in an effort to earn enough money to buy one. I've worked out that I should earn about 4p per click on adverts on my blog using the Google Adsense programme, so it stands to reason that in just 25,000 short clicks I should have enough to buy one. So I've jumped in feet first and set up an adsense account. I've tried to make the ads as unobtrusive as possible and have placed them at the bottom of the right hand column.

So if it isn't too much trouble, if when you visit this site and have decied that you have read enough, please click on one of the Google Adverts. It wont cost you anything and it could help me to get my 20D.

Well so far I have racked up the grand total sum of 0p! At this rate the sun will implode before I get myself a digital SLR :(

I clicked on it and found some site that rents fake tropical plants.

40p so far. I'm well chuffed.

2499 more days to go at this rate. I hope the pace picks up :)

Did you really? If you did it is a damning indictment of the Google Adsense programme.

However, I knowing that you are using ubuntu as your OS so this is extreemly unlikely.

Keep clicking on the ads, once or twice a day should do ;)

I've reached a pound! I can visualise that 20D in my hands already. It's a salivatingly good feeling.

Okay, at the current rate it'll probably be a 30D or a 40D but at least I'm on the road to digital SLR ownership :)

I'm not sure if you are being sarcastic, ironic, or excited.

On the one hand there's tha fact that I've made a pound, w00t; then again there's the fact that I've only made a pound, bummer.

I'm knocking on the door of £2.00 at the moment.

Well, when I say knocking I mean I can nearly reach the door knocker, by which I mean I can see the door knocker, which is to say that I can see the door, which really means ...

The "Vegetable Tagine -
The aubergines are finely diced and cooked down to a thick paste, to provide an ideal sauce for the oven-roasted vegetables and Moroccan spices" looks really good.

I've reached a mind bogglingly high £18.00! WOOT!

I've also uped my desire accordingly to a 30D. At this rate it'll only take a few more years.

I like the ads.
I found the disposable Cameras on Trymylot great as my niece is getting married in Jamaica in October
There was a camera with a beach wedding scene, which will be perfect for her wedding on the white sand beach at Nigril.
