A Feathered Friend Visits

Ahoy matey.

Yesterday, me Admiral noticed a feathered friend sittin' on the top of a mast. The sailboat was just 3 or 4 slips down from us.

Do you know what kind of bird this is?

There are many in this area. It was fun to watch, such big eyes. Wow.

How You Can Make Fun Cute Holiday Yarn Pom Poms

Not too long ago I was cruising around YouTube looking at and watching interesting videos. I came across a video about making pom poms with the cardboard rings. 

It jogged my memory of back when I was a kid and we always were doing crafty things. 

You know, back in the day, everyone crocheted, or knitted, and darned socks and patched jeans.

The beauty of making something fun like pom poms. It is family safe, be careful with the scissors. And you change the yarn color for whatever is the holiday coming up. For Christmas you might use red and green.

Watch the video to find out how you can get a set.

My One Month Anniversary On Empire Avenue

September 13th, Tuesday, was my 1 month anniversary on Empire Avenue. I started on August 13th and I want to give a shout out and say “thanks” to all my investors.

When I started EA, I set a first month goal of reaching 1,000,000 eaves and a stock price of 60-85 eaves. I reached 1 million eaves in about ten days and today I am at 1,720,295 eaves. My stock price is 87.91 eaves.

(from FAQ page) Stock Price 60-85:
Exceptional social media user
Very active on a handful of social media sites
Find it hard not to post on your sites (perhaps you should seek addiction counseling?)
You are followed, nay, stalked — you have a large audience on all sites
It looks like investors like you — they own more of you than you do!

And I am currently at 87.91...

I am President (the #2 position) on the "Video Blogging" index.

To be honest, I am not much for playing Internet games. I don’t do Farmville or any of the many games. Never have and most likely never will…But I find Empire Avenue fascinating, it is a great Social Media metric. I like how I can track my activity on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and my blogs all in one place. If I see my activity slipping in one platform I can pick up the pace.

So I want to take a moment to thank everyone for purchasing my stock, for investing in me. Of course, I think I am a great investment. My stock price continues to climb (much slower now but still going up). My Dividend stays around 0.96-0.98 eaves, and recently has increased to 1.05 giving me well over 1.0 ROI (1.2).

T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U Arrrrrrr.


P.S. And because Empire Ave is about being social and making connections. The most excellent way to be supportin' Capt Rob and Pirate Lifestyle TV is ta LIKE & FAVORITE & THUMBS UP his videos an' be sharin' it wit' ye friends on Facebook an' Twitter.

A humble pirate "thank you" fer doin' this. Arrrrr.

Looking back at the oldies

Something you have probably noticed is the re-uploading of the very first (original) videos. I am going back to the beginning of Pirate Lifestyle TV and editing the intro of the early videos with YouTube’s in-house video editor. It is fun to look back at how this all began and how far we have come.

Life Is Like The Weather It Changes and It Is Unpredictable

This is a story about sex, not really, it’s about life and attitude.

In this video, I am going to share how life is like the weather,
sometimes unpredictable and always changing,
and show you that no matter how bad it’s storming one day, the next day can be absolutely beautiful.

Why is life like the weather? Watch the video and find out!

Tropical Storm Lee [TS Lee]

Tropical Storm Lee [TS Lee] Gulf Coast Wind Waves Rain Surge - Pirate Lifestyle TV ™ Quickie 057

Ahoy me hearties.

This morning we had the following advisories: Tornado Watch, Coastal Flood Warning, High Surf Advisory, Coastal Hazard Advisory, Flash Flood Watch, High Wind Warning, and a Special Statement Advisiory...
Maybe it would be easier to list the advisories we don't have??
I don't think this storm will ever end? We started dealing with the winds and rain from TS-Lee early on Friday morning. Here it is Monday, our 4th day of this. Bands of pouring rain, very high gusts of wind. It is getting tiring.

They are prediciting as much as 36 more hours of this! Arrrrr.
Here is a video I shot on Sunday, yesterday, and I am out on the beach of the Alabama coast.

The Weather Channel is saying we might have 36 more hours of this...
