This is Paul. I botched my money juggling this week. Due to crazy things by crazy entities, I need to send a PayPal payment on Sunday night at 8 p.m. Mountain time. I have a bank transfer going to PayPal, but those funds will arrive there too late.

It's my mistake so I need to make it right. And this is something where I cannot blame my current affliction.
I had some brainstorming help today and Jocelyn pointed out that while I'm on my back, I can still do phone calls. With that in mind and a bunch of other brainstorming I offer the following until 8 p.m. Mountain time Sunday evening…




I generally feel that consulting isn't the thing I should be doing ,so in the past what I would do is every time somebody paid me for consulting work, I would raise my rates. The last time somebody actually paid me what my rate was, it was set at $250 per hour - so I doubled it to $500 per hour, and nobody has ever paid that. But now I'm on my back all day and I can't do all the other things I need to be doing - so consulting seems fairly easy.

$100 per hour. Send in payment now, and I can talk to you this weekend, or next week, or whenever you want.

Send monies via PayPal to paul at richsoil.com



Destiny and I put our heads together today and came up with a pretty cool package.

Come here, stay in one of our funky structures, watch the clouds pass, drive the excavator, pick out a skill you'd like to learn, have dinner with me, and a whole bunch of other stuff. It smells a little bit like being a gapper, but without any obligations, lots more candy, and generally first class treatment. Well, as first class as we can muster right now.

We call it the Seriously Excited about Permaculture Pampering thing, or SEPP. Wanna be the first Sepper? You can buy a package now while it's freaky cheap and come when our facilities are fancier.

I really like the idea of people buying a dozen pies and giving them all away to the people who make the best contributions to Permies. So, to sweeten the deal, anyone who has bought a dozen pies (144 pieces) will get a half an hour of consultation.

http://permies.com/t/52136



For the next 48 hours, I’ll also be giving a complimentary 30 minute consultation session to anyone that signs up to be a Gapper.

http://permies.com/t/46350/



Any Ant that signs up in the next 48 hours will get 2 hours of consultation with me.

http://permies.com/t/44793/



Build your own care package, which can include DVDs, mugs, permaculture playing cards, the podcast jump drive (please take these off my hands), and Permies t-shirts.

http://permies.com/t/37423/



Finally, for the next 48 hours I’m offering a crazy good deal on advertising. Simply put, we’re going to give you $1,000 worth of any advertising you need for just $500, the details of which can be worked out. We’ll go above and beyond to make sure you get freaky big gobs of candy!

Send monies via PayPal to paul at richsoil.com - Send monies NOW, NOW I SAY!! We will talk about sweet candy later.

Ah, I had to re-read that. I read it as Sunday 8th March and was staring at my calendar and wondering why it took so long and wasn't the 8th a Tuesday?

Yeah, just to be clear, we are talking about the sunday at 8 p.m. that is about 48 hours away.

Somebody reminded me about how this year February has 29 days and does that make any difference. Yes, if there were only 28 days, then I would have only 24 hours.

Do the proceeds from your stuff on Scubbly get into your PayPal account right away? Are there any downloads can I buy that will help this weekend? I sure appreciate all that you've given to the world, Paul, and I want to start paying back!

...but I'm a Canadian hoping to avoid that international shipping if I can. If there are no downloads that meet the need, I do see some alternatives in the list...

If I send a prepayment in the morning (I've gotta get to work) for renting a wofati in August (looking like schedules will work) will that be going into this account?

Sorry, gotta get to work or I'd wait for a response now.

What's the idea with the prices for the Sepp'ers? Is that per person or is it for the lodging up to 4 people and then it is only 40 USD extra per person for the fifth and up?

Unfortunately Scubbly things put us in the same scenario, it just takes so long for those funds to clear Paypal. I could be wrong (Paul?), but I don't think we have any digital downloads at this time that process through Paypal. We really appreciate you hopping up to pitch in though! I'm sure Paul knows a few things I don't.

Yes! All reservation fees go directly to Paypal, so that's a big huge awesome thing for us!

The prices for the lodging cover up to four people, and then after that you pay an additional $40 per person for the fifth and up (so you have it right )

Okay, next question is what happened to the topic about renting wofatis? I went to get the price and get an error message saying there is no such subject. As soon as I have the price I'll send it. I think the topic also had the information on how to let ya'll know when I wanted to be there.

Since this seems time sensitive, I've sent my best guess, but I still need to see the price list, I'll send the rest if I'm remembering to low.

Okay, finally realized the SEPPer program you were touting at the top of this topic was connected to renting the wofati. Full payment has now been sent.

In the interest of revamping that thread, we created a new one and revamped the information in it yesterday - you can find all of the pricing and information here.

I didn't even know there was such a thing as pumpkin seeds without the hull. Do they taste like sunflower seeds without the shell? How did you get the hull off of a whole bunch of seeds?

The stuff at scubby is paid to me about two months after people buy stuff. The awesome thing about Scubbly is that all of their stuff works so professionally. But a trade off is that you get the funds two months later.

My paypal account now has enough money to do the things I need to do on Sunday evening.

Wow, that was fast.

In fact, I've been busy processing orders for different things this morning and just now took a moment to go look at the total in my PayPal account... I think I had enough sometime in the middle of the night. So, about 5 hours after asking for it?

You guys are fucking awesome! I make a mistake and you all bail me out. I love being me.

Holy cow - that was fast! I think that's what they call a responsive mailing list Paul!

This is one kickass army of minions.
