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

Take good care of YOUR day today!


Hey Folks.

Happy New Year to all my customers and partners.

Hope the new 2009 will start with good business as we all
in Internet business also are suffering strongly by the economic
downtime. I had a conversation yesterday with an old ezine
partner and she said she is considering stop publishing her
ezine after 6 years of building her subscriber list.

But don't give up so easy. It will for sure turn in January. As I
said before, bad times usually bring more people to try their
luck on Internet. And when they come, those who have a strong
foundation and a good ezine subscriber list for sure is better out
when people are searching for ways to advertise their business.

Now is a good time to start your own ezine. It won't cost you
anything at all to start. Free tips at:

4. SFI Product Spotlight!


Conjugated Linoleic Acid.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid works by reducing fat and increasing
muscle. CLA is both an appetite suppressant and fat reducer and
can help people to lose weight and keep it off.

Daily supplementation with Conjugated Linoleic Acid can result
in 1 to 2 pounds per week of weight loss.

180 Soft Gels Bottle $25.97


Order and more information:


Also a very good and honest business opportunity.

If you are in a doubtful business you will for sure change your
mind after reading Mr. Wattles book.

The only business I work with, since 2002, besides '2Bucks' an Ad
and my ezine, is SFI. They sell products that benefit people. And
they have done that since 1985, online since 1998.
People really are getting something valuable. As Mr. Wattles says,
"you must give more in use value than you take in cash value".

Take a look yourself.

One of the few Internet businesses you can join and work with
absolutely FREE. Join my winning team today and I will show
you how you also can be a WINNER!


To you health.
Bo Ekvall

5. Ask Lena. Health Questions and Answers.



I am a 58 year old female who takes 10 mg. of Synthroid for
low thyroid.  Is there an alternative that is natural?
Thank you,

Since low or inactive thyroid is so common anymore this is a very
good question for my ezine readers, as a large number most likely
have a thyroid problem undiagnosed. You can do a simple home thyroid
check with a home test that will give you far better and accurate
results than any a blood test. You can find the test instructions
online if you wish to check your thyroid function.

Yes, Sue there is a synthroid alternative...


Read Lena Sanchez' whole answer on this question at:


From that website you can also ask questions yourself.

Lena Sanchez a happy retired Medical Office Nurse, Administrator
and Health Consultant who took charge of her life in 1992, found
pain relief and kicked the prescription drugs. She is committed to
helping others do the same by answering health questions.
To learn more about her alternatives go to

Or to get a health evaluation


a product called Dust Off. This is a canister of compressed air
that is designed to clean dust from computers. The compressed air
uses a propellant gas that can be dangerous if it is inhaled because
the gas prevents oxygen from reaching the brain. This causes
dizziness and a feeling of being high, making it attractive to some
teens. How many brain cells die is unknown.  It's a very scary
thing, because it can also kill without warning.

Squeezing Lemons ...


The local pub was so sure that its barman was the strongest
man around that it offered a standing one thousand dollars
bet that no one could beat him.

The challenge was that the  barman would squeeze a lemon
until all the juice ran out into a beer glass, then hand the
lemon to a customer. Anyone who could squeeze even one
more drop out of the lemon would win the money.

Over the years many people had tried this, truck drivers,
weightlifters and all had failed.

Then one day this frail little fella with heavy rimmed spectacles
came into the bar and asked if he could try the challenge.

After the laughter had subsided the barman said that it was
only fair that the man be given a chance at the bet, so he
picked up a lemon and started squeezing.

Once he was done he handed the remains to the little man
who promptly squeezed out 4 more drops of juice onto
the bar...

Everyone looked on in amazement as the barman handed
over the prize and asked,

"What do you do for a living that has given you such
strength? Are you a lumberjack, weightlifter, what?"

"No" the man replied, "I work for IRS."

Microchipping And How To Never Lose Your Dog.


Each year, more than 10 million pets are lost. It can easily
happen, no matter how much we all try to prevent it. When your
pet is lost and if they do not have a collar or their collar gets
lost, it can be very difficult for them to find their way home.

According to the American Humane Association, only about 17% of
lost dogs and 2% of lost cats ever find their owners. Nearly 20
million pets are euthanized each year because their owners
cannot be located. If your pet is microchipped, there is a much
greater chance that they will return to you safely. Microchips
will last for your pet's lifetime as there are no moving parts
and nothing to replace.

11. Poetry by Charlotte Appleton.


The Assent

A Sonnet Sequence

For Fernando Maza, painter

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
Without form there can be no emptiness,
Without emptiness there can be no form.
Heart Sutra, Buddhist Scripture

23 of 87. 24 in the next issue.)


I sat beside you in the local bar,
And let the spirit seize anatomy,
Each bone, each hair of who you really are,
And how it spoke in aching cells to me
Of all those years in search of a good show,
Of women who have known you, and have gone
With all the fondness you could really know
Into the past, into oblivion
And when you left, with other friends in tow
A chill came on the place, it was forlorn;
You said that I was bright, with a good brain,
I wished again that I had not been born
With such a body, and with such a face;
How can I change to be in your good grace?


Poetry brought to you by Charlotte Appleton.

to the longsuffering wife of the then military attaché
to Her Britannic Majesty's Embassy in Bucharest, Romania
during the Cold War, and grew up fat as a diplomat's brat."

A man is at work one day when he notices that his
co-worker is wearing an earring.

This man knows his co-worker to be a somewhat
conservative fellow, so naturally he's curious about
the sudden change in fashion sense.

The man walks up to his co-worker and says,
"I didn't know you were into earrings."

"Don't make such a big deal, it's only an earring,"
he replies sheepishly.

"Well, I'm curious," begged the man, "how long
have you been wearing an earring?"

"...ever since my wife found it in our bed."


14. Computer Security Tip of the week.


Brought to you by Syd Tash at:


Microsoft Cleans Fake Software Off PCs.


Microsoft has a program called the Malicious Software Removal Tool
(MSRT) that you get every month when you update your Windows on
Patch Tuesday. This month, December, MSRT cleaned the fake security
software Antivirus 2009 from some 400,000 computers.


Other fake antivirus programs include Antivirus XP, Antivirus XP 2008,
Advanced Antivirus, etc. The rogue programs throw pop-ups at you,
urging you to buy useless software to “clean” your PC, usually at
$40 a pop, or more.


You should have one antivirus program from a well-known reputable
vendor. Use your antispyware security scans, or the MSRT, to get rid
of all the others. Never accept scans or software offered to you in
pop-ups, emails or on Web sites you visit.
