Anyone Need Any Tandem Decals?

During the early years of ‘’ we used revenues from the sale of tandem decals to defray the costs of hosting the site and it worked out pretty well. However, we may have saturated the market early on, as sales of the decals have fallen-off quite a bit from the ‘boom’ years right after they were first introduced. More recently what had become about the norm for annual sales fell by 40% in 2008 and then another 60% in 2009. So, to those who have asked, ‘Why the Google Ads?’ for things like tandem-shaped objects… it’s simply become an alternative source of revenue for the site. Since we are essentially non-commercial and don’t do much in the way of promotion or advertising those Googe AdSense revenues aren’t all that much, perhaps 1/3 to 1/2 of what we generated in decal sales back in 2000-2002. So, please accept our apologies for the ads if they seem bothersome or don’t always align with the values or views of, it’s just a necessary evil to keep the fires buring, so to speak.


About TG

I've been around a bit and done a few things, have a couple kids and a few grandkids. I tend to be curmudgeonly, matter-of-fact and not predisposed to self-serving chit-chat. Thankfully, my wife's as nice as can be otherwise we'd have no friends. My interests are somewhat eclectic, but whose aren't?
