You Have 5 Clicker Invites!

Dear Clicker Beta Users,

We’re now a little more than a month into our beta.  We hope you’re liking Clicker so far!  For our part, we’ve been learning a ton from your collective feedback. You may have even noticed changes being made to the site as we get ready to open Clicker up to the general public.

As we gear up for full launch, we’re ready to let a bit more traffic onto the site. The way we like to do this is to give some of our beta users free invites to give to their friends. So, here are 5 invitations, bundled in one convenient link for you to distribute to whomever, and however, you wish. Email your friends or invite your Twitter followers or Facebook friends. It’s your call. (Just don’t sell them on eBay.)

The link below will work for the first 5 people who use it. Just pass it along and we’ll do the rest.

Remember, only the first 5 people who sign up using your special link will be able to get into Clicker.

And, by all means, keep your feedback coming, either by clicking the Feedback button on any page of the site, or by emailing us at We honestly can’t get enough of it — positive or negative. It’s all useful for honing Clicker into the complete programming guide to Internet television.

Thanks again for signing up for the beta!

Team Clicker

ps – Remember to follow us on Twitter ( and/or Facebook (

We at Clicker only like receiving emails if they’re absolutely necessary, so we promise to only send you an email on the rare occasion that we have something important to tell you.  If you absolutely never, ever want to hear our friendly voice again, just email us at and we’ll go away quietly.

Rogue Valley Soap Company Oregon

Natural organic handmade soap at wholesale is made by Rogue Valley Soap and Candles. The organic hand made soaps are scented with pure essential oils.

Rogue Valley Soap Company is a small family-owned business located in beautiful Southern Oregon. We are dedicated to making the finest natural handmade soap at wholesale prices. Also available are premium handmade soy tealight candles, soy votive candles, and hurricane candles. We use only the highest quality ingredients in our hand made soap and in our soy tealights and soy votives. Our handmade soap is made in small batches using the”cold process” method, thereby retaining the natural glycerin that is produced during the saponification process. Glycerin naturally soothes and softens the skin. Many commercial soap manufacturers remove glycerin from their soap, thus leaving your skin dry and itchy after using their soap.

The base of our natural handmade soaps is olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil. We don’t use tallow or animal fat in any of our handcrafted soaps. The natural handcrafted soap is scented with pure essential oils that are distilled from natural herbs, plants, and flowers.

Because our soaps are handcrafted, they are very unique in size, shape and characteristics. Each bar of soap is hand cut and weighs approximately 3.5 to 4 ounces. Handmade soap lasts longer than the commercial soaps found in retail stores. The aroma therapy and therapeutic values of the natural, pure essential oils used to scent our soaps are listed in The Essential Oils Guide.

Most of the natural herbs used in our soaps are organically grown (pesticide free) in our herb gardens in Grants Pass, Oregon. The handmade soap is air-dried and aged for a minimum of four weeks to produce a mild, gentle, long-lasting bar of soap that is naturally high in glycerin. Our soap will leave your skin feeling smooth, soft, and re-hydrated.

Handmade hurricane candles are made from a high temperature wax to prevent the shell from melting. Real flowers (grown in my garden in Grants Pass, Oregon) are encased in the candle wax. Hurricane candles are hollow inside. Illuminate the hurricane candle by placing a tealight candle or a votive candle inside the candle.

Soy tealight candles and soy votive candles are hand-poured in small batches. These highly fragrant soy tealights and soy votives will scent and entire room. Soy tealights will burn 6 to 8 hours and soy votives will burn 18 to 20 hours or longer. Soy wax will liquify when burning, so a snug-fitting container is necessary when burning the votive candle. Soy wax is water soluble and easily cleans up with soap and water.

The natural hand made soaps, hurricane candles, soy tealights and soy votive candles can be purchased locally at Savannah Faire in Grants Pass, Oregon, and at Siskiyou Artisans located in the Rogue Valley Mall in Medford, Oregon. You can also find me on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Growers Market in Grants Pass, Oregon. I also sell at various craft faires and festivals in California, Oregon, and Washington.

Handmade soap makes great wedding favors. Soap labels can be personalized with the bride and groom’s name and date of wedding.

Free Toilets in Hacienda Heights California

Close to 1000 poeople lined up outside of Los Altos High School as the local water company gave away 2 free HEF toilets to each home that was able to verify that they lived at the property.

October 31, left many disappointed by not receiving thhe toilets.  We arrived at about 9am and the line stretched for blocks. We came within 100 or so people of probably getting the toilets.

We home that the water disctrict finds a way to manage this popular giveaway.  Our water bills are way too high and this is one way to cut the costs but also save our natural resource.

High Efficienncy Toilets use substantially less water because of the dual flush system.

The 1000 toilets be given out today are part of a program that is supposed to occur again in Feb 2010 in West Covina. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.  The best advice is to show up before the 8am opening and you have a pretty good chance, I am sure some people got their before 6am.

Almost $19k Raised! Help Us Reach $20k in FINAL 2 Days!

This is a letter I received this morning from Doug Campbell who has been working to raise $20k for some really good causes. Help out he is almost there.


It’s been quite a while since a Projectfresh mailer! However, this topic is too important.

If you don’t know, for my 30th birthday, I went on a 7 day, 7 city, 7 party fiesta – and raised almost $20k with my cohort Sloane Berrent! However, we are just shy of our goal.


NOTE: $5 buys a net, $150 saves a life..
We’re at: $18,752!
Help us reach our goal of $20k!

Visit the site to make a donation TODAY and help in this national fundraiser where 100% of the donations go to malaria nets through Netting Nations, a 501c3 organization:

Best regards,

Dougie Fresh
