A Healthier You In A Few Easy Steps ☆

In today’s world, there are many more people paying attention to nutrition. Many have found it difficult to know what is nutritious, and what is harmful, for the body. The information contained here will assist you in your goal to finding out the truth regarding nutrition.

Fiber is absolutely necessary for daily functioning. Breads, cereals, brown rice, and some fruits and vegetables are high in fiber. If you are not going to be able to eat 20-25 grams of fiber a day, consider a supplement. These supplements take many shapes, such as tablets, capsules and even mixable powders.

You need to ensure you give your fitness plans as much priority as every other item you have planned in your diary that day. To eliminate the excuse that you are too busy to work out, set aside a specific time for exercising each day.

Consider adding more soy products to your meals because they have benefits in lowering your cholesterol to a healthy level. Soy burgers, tofu and soy beans are tasty products that are made of soy. It is a very good addition to any diet. (more…)

Fear Of Flying ☆

Fear of flying receives more attention than most phobias such as claustrophobia because air travel is often difficult for people to avoid.


Some children are introduced to air travel at an early age and I have even seen babies as young as six weeks of age on some of the flights I have been on in recent years.

One of my granddaughters began her flying trips at a young age (I don’t remember her exact age but I think she was a pre-schooler) and these trips did not appear to disturb her.

However, an occasion eventually arose when she boarded a flight and even before buckling into her seat, was completely unable to venture any further and left the plane immediately.

Perhaps ten years later, after numerous automobile road trips, train trips & bus trips she tried to tackle her fear of flying in a new way.  She arranged a short flight with a pilot in a small airplane.  The flight was successful and she felt quite good about it but it was a far cry from traveling over many miles on a commercial airline.

I have recently become acquainted with a mode of travel that I am sure she would be happy with, and since she lives not far from the Atlantic Ocean, it would be ideal for her.  Of course, I am referring to a cruise ship.

My recent acquaintance with the folks at No Fly Cruising.com has prompted me to write this article about my granddaughter.

They have a free “No Fly Cruising” book on their website which I am planning to sign up for today.

Be sure to visit the No Fly Cruising website and see all the great cruise information there.  No Fly Cruising

Easy Keyboard Songs-Learn to Play Fur Elise ☆

Fur Elise is a song that comes as a demo with most electronic piano keyboards. Some people feel that this is a simple song only for beginners.   However, it is much more than that.   It is a beautiful classical work of art as you will hear in the following video. Easy keyboard songs such as this are the perfect thing to practice with.

Selling Digital Products Using E-Junkie ☆

E-junkie is not only for selling digital products, you can read all about this many faceted service and see for yourself.  In addition to selling there is a facility provided at E-Junkie whereby you can publish a newsletter to keep in touch with your buyers.

E-Junkie Review

E-junkie is basically a comprehensive distribution service of digital electronic products as well as physical goods available for anyone who has a product to sell.

They feature a marketplace to list your product and provide all the necessary payment processing and delivery of eGoods.

Simple, cheap and convenient to use. E-junkie provides the necessary buttons for a shopping cart and/or “Buy Now” that are easy to copy and paste onto your web page.

It is one of the few online ecommerce merchant marketplaces that allows for listing and selling both downloadable products as well as tangible goods.

A particularly great feature is that E-junkie hosts the digital product for you, collects payment then automatically sends the customer an email with the download link.

There aren’t any additional fees for anything either! Just the monthly charge of $5.

E-junkie also provides you with the opportunity to set-up an affiliate program with an extremely easy process to pay commissions via PayPal.

The range of customization of all automated communications with customers is also excellent.

I just don’t understand the eJunkie logo of what I think appears like a black demon blinking his eyes. It’s a bit disconcerting at first.

In my opinion, there simply isn?t a cheaper, easier, or better place to list and sell your products on the internet. The flexibility alone is well worth $5 a month. With all of the competition out there, finding an easy system that has you set up within only a short time is definitely an asset for many small business owners looking to grow their business online.

$5 a month to list up to 10 products and utilize 50MB of storage for your eproduct.

Quick Facts about Toronto for Those Looking to Move or Visit ☆

When I was a young girl attending public school in the 1930’s, my city of Toronto, Canada had a population of less than one hundred thousand people. Now there are over 2.5 million people living here and of course it is still growing with the greater Metropolitan area of T.O.being a little over 5 million(this includes surrounding smaller cities such as Mississauga,Pickering, Ajax, and Markham).

One of the most important facts about Toronto that others like to know about is the population size of this capital city.  When people are looking to move here now, a big population often means greater opportunities for business and jobs and for many a chance at a better life than where they are coming from.

While the population is not large compared to some cities in the far East such as Osaka, Japan, where my present day mentor and teacher Kevin Riley lives (Osaka has a population of over twelve million people), it is still one of the largest and most popular in Canada.

It is so great to be able to reach people not only in Toronto or Osaka but anywhere in the world via the internet.

I met Kevin Riley in person when he went to Atlanta, Georgia and I was able to be there too. If it were not for the internet none of these connections could have taken place. This is the reason I have nothing but praise for the World Wide Web.

I went to Atlanta again in August 2011 for nams 6.  My daughter, granddaughter and great-grandson were there too.  We learned a lot and met some wonderful internet marketers and made several new friends. Being able to share quick facts about Toronto like this, is what makes for great conversations and learning opportunities when meeting with so many people of different places from around the world.

Website Hosting Services ☆

Online blog hosting

Over the past several years I have set up a number of websites and used the services of 5 different Website Hosting services.

I will explain some of the features of these services and compare prices, ease of use and the capabilities of their Cpanels.

The hosting services I am familiar with are:
1. Netfirms
2. Host Papa
3. Host Monster
4. Host4Profit
5. Host Gator

Four of these allow you to set up a website using WordPress. Host4Profit have their very own wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) process for designing and publishing a website.

Host Papa, Host Monster and Host Gator feature Cpanel with its groups of icons for Mail, Links, Preferences, Logs, Files, Security & Software/Services.

Using Fantastico, which is the most commonly used Software for building a WordPress website,  a site can be initiated and easily set up by anyone.

With regard to pricing, the monthly fee for each of these website hosting services is probably within the same ballpark. Once you have made your choice, the ability to add-on more domains for no extra cost is a bonus.

Host4Profit will allow an additional domain to be hosted for five dollars extra each month. I really don’t see the advantage of paying this added cost, when you can add on a domain for the same monthly price, using Host Papa, Host Monster and Host Gator.

Netfirms seems to be geared to people that have little or no knowledge of web hosting so it is a very good web host for a Newbie to use.

I have been advised by those in the know however, that when you register a website through a particular web host, it is best not to use them for your monthly hosting, e.g. you register a new website at GoDaddy or Namecheap. You would then arrange monthly hosting with one of the website hosting services I mention here or any other that you might choose (but not the web host that is your registrar).
