    Unhappy No Xmas gifts from Google Adsense this year...

    Google adsense won't be sending Xmas gifts to publishers this year.

    Not that I was expecting one, but it's always been cool to see what they were handing out each year.

    No Google Adsense Christmas Gifts This Year!

    I also read this news on Labnol. I am not using adsense so I guess I do not have the habit of thinking like this .

    Darn! I've been watching webmasters brag for two years, finally I make a couple of dollars and feel like somebody and the gifts get cancelled?!! not fair.

    Okay, I'll just brag about my little MaxBounty calendar that was delivered last week all the way from Canada

    I'm not sure that saving a few dollars on keeping your 'partners' happy is a great idea, especially when some of them are making you $xx,xxx. I think that deserves a gift even in the hard times, and if anyone here helps me make an extra $20k in the next 12 months I can promise them a lovely present next Christmas!

    Still, I got a bottle of something (alcoholic) from Holland sent to me yesterday from an affiliate company I work with but I can't read a single word on the label and have no idea what it is. A Christmas day afternoon experiment I think.

    Its 'Bols Corenwyn 6 jaar gelagerd' and comes in a groovy hand made earthenware bottle. Some kind of medieval gin as far as I can tell.

    A corenwyn (or corenwijn) is a type of genever:
    Genever is a dry spirit made from grains and distilled with herbs such as angelica, coriander, licorice and anise. Genever’s trademark is a marked maltiness combined with a complex but fairly light herbal profile. Like gin, genevers contain juniper, but generally in a much less prominent role. Distillers create their own unique formulas, which are often kept secret.

    Amsterdam pubs stock several types of genevers, the most common of which are jonge, oude, corenwijn and fruit. A general misconception is that oude and jonge genever means aged and unaged. In fact, the names refer to the recipes. Oude genever is an older formula, with a moderate amount of maltiness and botanicals. Younger generations of Dutch drinkers began desiring a smoother, mellower spirit, which led to jonge (young) genever, which is less malty and has a cleaner, more subtle taste, closer to a vodka. Corenwijn (also spelled corenwyn or korenwijn) is the maltiest. There are also fruit genevers—a more modern creation—which downplay the malt and botanicals and have added fruit flavors, such as berries and citrus.

    This sounds a lot better than the stupid gifts AdSense had been sending out over the last few years!
