2. Hello Dear subscriber! [FIRSTNAME]


Greetings from Brazil! :-)

Temperature right now 11 PM May 7, 2008.

+ 20 Celsius. Sunny warm days, cold evenings and nights.


Hope you all are having a great week!


"Give everyone more in use value than you take from him in cash value."
- Wallace D. Wattles

I woke up this morning! - All the rest is BONUS!

Take good care of YOUR day today!


The last couple of weeks there have turned up quite a few new
very interesting programs. I can tell that of the big increase of
'2Bucks' an Ad orders. Fact is that I have not had so many orders
the last week for a long, long time.

And as you know I check all ads and links before I submit the
ads to the ezine publishers. Normally some 30% of ads is
returned to the clients for different reasons but this week there
is so far less ads I need to return to the clients. So it seems to
be serious businesses for a change. :-) Maybe it's worth a while
for you to check out the classified ads today. It's only 10 and
maybe you find your gold nugget there.

As for our new house, no big changes this week. Our architect
promised to make the final touch today and bring us the result
tomorrow for our signature and then all goes to the authority to
say ok to start. Hopefully we will start the construction within an
couple of weeks. Lot's of patience needed and that unfortunately
I don't have very much of. :-)

Last weekend a cyclone also hit the cost of south Brazil. Not
as serious as in Burma but strong enough to hit our beachhouse
quite bad. 10 centimeters of mud in the lower part of our house,
the garage and the kitchen. All cleaned up by now but it cost
of course money. We are also making the roof more strong to be
safe in the future.

Yours Truly
Bo Ekvall

Have a Wonderful Day!

3. This weeks visdom words by Wallace D. Wattles.


"You can advacnce only by being larger than your present
place, and no one is larger than his present place who
leaves undone any of the work pertaining to that place.
The world is advanced only by those who more than fill
their present places."

5. Ask Lena. Health Questions and Answers.



I have Arthritis in my knees, hips, ankles, and have had
pain in my hands, elbows, wrists, etc. I am told I am a
candidate for hip replacement, but am getting cold laser,
acupuncture, and homeopathy injections , hoping that I
won't have to have the replacement..  I take Glucosamine,
and MSN, in addition to a whole gamut of food supplements
from the Shaklee Co. I try to eat carefully, avoiding
sugar as much as possible, no colas, I have found that I
am sensitive to yeast and most grains. Do you have any more
suggestions, or know of any new treatment for Arthritic joints?

Thanking you in advance,
Dear Margaret,
You are doing some good things for yourself but are you taking
too much or insufficient amounts of your supplements? I don't
know, possibly you are overdoing them?

A Lesson.

A chemistry teacher wanted to teach his fifth-grade class
a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an
experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of
whiskey and two worms.

"Now, class. Observe the worms closely," said the teacher,
putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water
writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.

The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed
painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a

"Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?"
the teacher asked.

Johnny, who sits in the back, raised his hand and
responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms?"

Training A Show Dog.

Since the beginning of time, man has always been proud of the
things around him and quality was a prime concern. Even in the
biblical account of Adam and Eve, it states that Eve looked at
the fruit of the tree and saw that it was good and desirable
to the eyes. (Genesis 3:6 NKJV- "So when the woman saw that the
tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and
a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate.
She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.")

11. Poetry by Charlotte Appleton.


Fourteen Lyrics

A Duet Between the Composer and His Wife-Piano
For Alain and JoJo Lefevre, Athens, Christmas 1999

Part 9

You are my mirror, I who am the dance
And you the dancer, turned by exercise
Into the melody's reflection, prance
And pirouette, fierce Shiva in disguise,
The pulsing god of fire whose every step
Makes time turn in the universe, and breathe
Upon the surface of our sight the stop
And start of form and void, to do to death
And bring to birth, to sigh and to inspire
Epiphanies and wars, to turn again
And forge within the heart of our desire
New speculation, and the mild refrain
Which settles quarrels, makes a sudden peace
For those who listen find in us release.



Part 10 next week.

The Flight to Egypt.

A teacher asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures
of their favorite bible stories.

She was puzzled by a boy's picture which showed four
people on an airplane, so she asked him which story it
was meant to represent.

"The flight to Egypt," he replied.

"I see... And that must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus,"
she said. "But who's the fourth person?"

"Oh, that's Pontius -- the Pilot!"

15. Computer Security Tip of the week.


Brought to you by Syd Tash at:


Windows XP SP3 is Out (Again).


Microsoft has re-released Windows XP Service Pack 3, after
releasing it and then yanking it last week. You can get it
by going to the Windows or Microsoft Update site. Really.
That compatibility bug in Microsoft’s own Retail Management
System (RMS) software has been fixed, but the fix is not being
widely distributed for now. Anyway, few home users have RMS
(it costs $1,000) so do not worry. If you do have RMS, do
not install XP SP3 or Vista SP1.


The SP3 download is about 67MB. Download and install it when
you have some time, as it could take a while. If you have set
your Windows Update to Automatic Download, you will not get
SP3, for now. Automatic download of SP3 will begin only later
on, according to Microsoft, perhaps around June 10. Automatic
distribution of Vista SP1 has resumed.


Before you download and install any Service Pack, here are a
few things to keep in mind. You must log on to your computer
as the Administrator. If you are updating a laptop, plug it
in, so it does not run low on power during the download or


Back up your stuff before you begin, preferably to an external
hard drive or flash drive. Finally, make a Restore Point first.
To find out how and why, and what sort of animal a Restore Point
is, read my post here:
