One more Bucket List item, or sorta, removed. Since the Ecuadorian Volcano, Cotopaxi, is considered in an eruptive state, scaling to the top is still off limits. No, there is no actual eruption, at least in the sense of lava flowing from the top. No huge molten boulders flying Continue reading “What Happens At A 15,953 Foot Altitude With 16 People?”
Many people sign up for an affiliate marketing opportunity, place a few ads, and sit back waiting for that first $1,000 or $50,000 to roll in with their name on it.

If you are new to writing articles for money, the “what” to write about is generally the first question that comes to mind.. Many new article writers ask what topics are the best and that simply depends on a number of different factors.
The first question to consider is do you want to make money the most important factor, or do you want to write articles that are easy and quick to compose? Next, who are you writing for? Are these articles for a client or your own personal use? The answers to these questions can help you determine what style and type of writing you want to pursue.
Then there is the question of whether these articles are going to be used for blogging? Will they be used to create

How many people are actually satisfied with their life? Happy to a fault, looking forward to every minute of each day with gratitude, seeing positive opportunities in abundance. Is this you? Can you relate to feeling this way?
Asking this question to a mix of people with no agenda other than to discover what the average person on the street is thinking, would likely provide some not too surprising answers. It’s always interesting to Google something like this, just to see how many different answers show up. For the most part, there seems to be a general lack of understanding as to just what “satisfied” is or means.
Some will start off by trying to relate satisfied to happiness, and I find that while they may play in the same sandbox, they are two different emotions. While satisfied may include happiness, one can still be unhappy and satisfied, accepting a not so agreeable situation as the hand they have been dealt, resigned to moving forward in spite of circumstances.
Merriam Webster defines it this way;
:a happy or pleased feeling because of something that you did or something that happened to you
:the act of providing what is needed or desired
:the act of satisfying a need or desire
: a result that deals with a problem or complaint in an acceptable way
As noted satisfied can include happiness but is not dependent on it. So the question still remains, is life satisfying? There’s a good chance, better than even, that when closely questioned a majority would have to answer no to the question. Majority being anything over 50 percent may not seem a fair measurement, but let’s continue along this path to see where that leads.
Why aren’t people satisfied? A better question could be when is enough, enough? Ego will constantly claim just a little more, but a funny thing happens in that “more” is never specific and therefor never enough.
Here again ego is in the mix, that illusion of what we think is necessary to satisfy yet never does. Sound familiar? With more than 90 percent of the world’s population caught up in their ego, obviously some more than others, it doesn’t take much observation to see the signs where people have learned to endure current circumstances, but far from being really satisfied and much less happy.
Ego is not very different from addiction. Once caught up in it’s illusion, breaking free and recovery are just as challenging, and some days are better than others. It is a day by day effort, and no cure as such. As with addictions of all natures, it is learning how to cope more than be cured.
So is being satisfied with life an issue of breaking free of the ego and starting your own recovery program? Is it something as simple as recognizing how hypnosis or even self hypnosis can change your life? Oh wow, I can just imagine that wall which just sprang up out of nowhere!
As with so many things in life, that which one really knows nothing about is relegated to rumor, hearsay, urban legend, and all those metaphors that could be applied. I was one of those, until seeing it applied in a most unlikely place in regular everyday life during my residency with the government at Schofield Barracks in the middle of our squad bay.
One Archie Andrews, no relation to the comic book character except in real life, performed several acts on those of us willing to take part. What I witnessed destroyed any doubts as to the validity of hypnosis. At that time we were all taught how to use self-hypnosis to our betterment. I don’t think any of us really knew how to make it as effective as it could have been.
The point remains that today, medical practitioners are using it more and more with patients to reduce pain, depression, asthma, paralysis, and countless other physical and emotional issues. Where does this lead in terms of satisfaction with life? Quite simply that anyone can freely, easily, safely and effectively indulge in self-hypnosis to learn how not only satisfaction with life can be achieved, but a level of happiness never before experienced.
Do I endorse it, recommend, embrace or take advantage of it myself? The answer is really not important as it relates to the reader, since every one is distinct, unique and individual. Choices are always yours to make, and should never be based on what another has experienced.
Research is always recommended. There are books galore by respected authorities and sources. Those who choose can be convinced by the Bible itself, or books such as Think and Grow Rich, with it’s amazing secret, that whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
Thinking that neither has anything to do with hypnosis, simply fail to understand what hypnosis is. In simplest terms, it is the ability to determine how one wants to live life, the faith to believe it will happen, and take steps to make it so.
Most often referred to as autosuggestion, it is defined in these terms; The theory that if individuals can suggest a belief to themselves, they will come to believe it.
Also defined as; The process by which a person induces self-acceptance of an opinion, belief, or plan of action.
There’s a good chance that some might even attempt to view this as “brainwashing.” And why not? In effect, it is reaching the subconscious part of your mind, housed within the brain, and bringing about change through clearing or cleaning out thoughts and beliefs detrimental to success in many areas of life, based on fear of survival the subconscious mind operates on constantly.
Here’s the point. Anyone can be satisfied with status quo, following the crowd, or simply giving in to the path of least resistance. As a rule this does not bring the unbridled joy, thrills or adventures life has to offer.
Have you discovered your mission in life and your purpose? Is it to be satisfied, or is there more to it? Do you know? Is it a scary proposition to ask yourself such a question, for fear of not having an answer? Is there more to life than what you have been willing to extract? Is life stopping you, or is that something you have engineered yourself?
Many sit around looking for answers to sort of magically show up, rather than taking the necessary steps to dig in and find those missing pieces to the puzzle. Your puzzle is far from complete, and won’t be until you become that final piece, which will signify the end and the beginning.
Since our bodies were created with the ability to heal us, I’m going to see how to convince it to grow hair on a bald head!
As I began to review blogs, blogging and some blog sites, I realized I don’t really get the intensity behind blogging. It’s almost like a huge regurgitation of words about anything whether it makes sense or not.
Maybe it’s that very freedom to just put up (or throw up) any verbiage that runs out of the cerebral vortex without any care as to who, what, when, why, how or where.
As I consider this a little deeper, it’s like the world has been given the opportunity to take a chance at their moment of fame, and everybody is talking at the same time. Where a website seems organized, blogging seems to be anything but.
It’s sort of like tracing your thoughts. To me it is amazing how two thoughts can be linked together by seemingly unrelated events or circumstances, yet there is always a connector. Vivid or vague, it’s always there.
It’s almost like being lost in a sea of words, thrown about aimlessly by the waves of content from one thought to another and no firm foundation in sight. All I can think of is “WOW!”
As much as I enjoy writing, blogging almost seems like the insanity of words. The vision of a hoard of ants comes to mind, just growing, covering and devouring everything in sight.
Information is like that as I think about it. We have become addicted to information. The last time I checked, all the information in the world duplicated every 18 months. I don’t think it’s even possible to wrap your mind around that.
I wrote an article some time back that projected into the future what will happen with this unstoppable growth and proliferation of information. The focus was on what would happen in developing something new, and how it would become obsolete during the development process because the very knowledge that was being used would change, not in 18 months, or a year, but in a nano-second! See what I mean? Just try to even imagine that.
Then it occurs to me that there are many out there that are compelled to write. Reading of those words may never take place for many, yet posterity records them none the less. Somewhere in a niche’ on the internet those words hold immortal. Discovery may never regard them as a treasure, yet they bear witness of anothers thoughts about a given topic.
Ramblings with no apparent point sometimes surge to the forefront, along with the horrific distortions of truth on any topic. Just as there are posts out there as described, there are likely as many books that would fall into the same category.
Feelings of pleasure accompany this post, even if none other than it’s author find it interesting to contemplate. But here I am, adding my singular, unique, individual ramblings to the morass of undulating verbiage that is no longer invisible in the ether and frequency of our universe. I’m looking for some higher ground so as not to get swallowed up, somewhat fearful that there might not be any.
Slight of hand is alive and well, or at least what passes for the same when it comes to the Liberal Media. As if it wasn’t bad enough trying to listen for tidbits of truth from politicians, speech taken out of context, out and out lies from sources most don’t even recognize.
There are several issues at hand when it comes to what has been labeled “News” these days. Headlines are written in such a way as to be just short of libelous, in an effort to create the scandal, character assassination, or any ruse that will garner more viewers or advertisers.
How many times have we heard news making a claim, that on closer review had no foundation at all? That, or a deliberate distortion of the facts, which according to some sources media outlets claim the FCC ruling over broadcast of false information is only a ruling, but not a criminal offense, therefore giving them the right to broadcast the news in any way they see fit.
Whether or not the last part is true, based on the proliferation of fake news sites, and misrepresentation of statements and comments made by public figures, it has gotten to the point now more than ever in the past, where news media is in the majority, untrustworthy.
Below is a list of the top, not all, fake news sites constantly spreading outright lies and distortions, some admittedly and others not so, by snopes.com.

Following is wordage found on the FCC site as it relates to broadcasting false information. This just seems to give more leeway to those who are inclined to create faux news sites to further fill social media with their trash.
*The FCC’s rules prohibit holders of broadcast licenses from broadcasting false information concerning a crime or a catastrophe if:
the licensee knows the information is false; and
the licensee knows beforehand that broadcasting the information will cause substantial “public harm.” (a great deal is assumed here, as how easy is it to claim no knowledge of the impact beforehand) The public harm: (1) must begin immediately and cause direct and actual damage to property or the health or safety of the general public; or (2) divert law enforcement or public health and safety authorities from their duties.
If a broadcast licensee uses a disclaimer that clearly characterizes the program as fiction, and the disclaimer is presented in a way that is reasonable under the circumstances, the program will be presumed not to pose foreseeable public harm.*
Here is a link that supposedly deals with false or information that misrepresents information over any broadcast media. Notice the broad characteristics of the supposed penalties, and the ridiculous monetary amounts that would be paid. This is of special interest when taken into account how a broadcaster could benefit well beyond the supposed penalty or fine by way of advertising revenue and such.
So here we are as a public, assaulted by so much trash that tries to pass as news, you have to wonder what is going on behind the scenes? For such a laxness in regulating the media in general, it seems this is used as a shield to hide whatever is really happening that we don’t see.
What laws are being passed in congress that goes against the public interest, that even when reported gets pushed down to the level of unimportant events. Headlines that aren’t drastic or scandalous enough, to get our attention and by design.
How many times have you been embarrassed by forwarding or sharing an email or urgent message from someone that was proven to be a hoax or just completely fake? Fess up, because you’re not alone.
People that should know better have fallen victim on occasion, as well as the generally naive. So following is a list of the top three “myth busters” where you can get down to the facts about anything that sounds too good to be true, or just too outrageous.
These were discovered on a site listing the top 10 sites to help debunk the junk! Check this out for more information on the various sites and their reliability.
Scandalous, outrageous information is what a negative mind feeds on, rather than what’s true, honest, uplifting and just plain good. No, I’m not preaching here, and even many of those today resort to the previous. Want some good news? Then check out goodnewsnetwork.org for information that will make your day better. If it doesn’t, then you need what Zig Ziglar calls a “checkup from the neck up!”
I think I might go fry some pickles!
Over the years I have written about many issues concerning health, from Omega 3 Fish Oil from New Zealand, to the benefits of dark chocolate, the amazing cancer killing properties of the fruit known as Guanabana, to an herbal product known as Protandim.
I have read some amazing information by Dr. William Davis about how wheat has been hybridized to become addictive in our body system in his book, Wheat Belly. Research has been done on countless claims by those wanting to sell the latest diet fads. Always on the lookout for the “magic pill” that would change health and life expectancy for all, only to get smacked in the face with the truth. The “magic pill” is us!
There is an invisible war going on out there, as Al Davis says in his newest eBook, The Diet Fallacies, which can be found on Amazon (currently a free download if you hurry). He speaks about how we have been, in my words, sold down the river by our own government and the BIG FOOD industry.
It’s no secret for those who care to research what government entities such as the USDA are really responsible for. Follow this link to just one article that will start you on a research path to uncover what not just this government agency, but the FDA and others as well REALLY do…or don’t.
In short, what you will discover is our government is more interested in business than our nation’s health. Rather than agree to force producers to label foods containing GMO’s, there’s reason to believe a collaboration exists to keep this hidden. It is clearly known by those companies producing Genetically Modified Organisms that any food containing these artificial sources would be shunned by the public, drastically cutting into massive profits.
Many tests have been done on fast food products, showing that even the bugs don’t like it, even if humans consume massive amounts of it. That sort of puts the bugs on a greater intellectual level with humans on that score.
Whether it’s the sugar, artificial sweeteners, salt, and modified fat sources, it all contributes to the general populaces food addiction, or at the very least food dysfunction. No matter what label you apply, it is clearly visible in the visual epidemic of obesity in the American populace, from adults to their children.
The Diet Fallacies: Change Your Diet, Change Your Weight, End Food Cravings, and Transform Your Life! One of the best sources of where to get more information about Whole Foods is Kaiser Premanente. Al mentioned this in his book, and Kaiser is the largest managed care organization in the U.S. With over 10.1 million members in their health plan, and recommending changing food consumption to Whole Foods, it gives cause to find out why.
Kaiser offers two booklets on adopting Plant-Based eating you can download from their website. An interesting quote found in one of those booklets by author Michael Pollan says, “If it came from a plant, eat it; if it was made in a plant, don’t!” Kaiser obviously endorses such thinking as they strongly support this mindset of Whole Food eating.
Just research “whole food eating” in Google and you’ll pull up over 7 million links on the topic. Granted that in and of itself does not create an endorsement, rather lends some food for thought. The cure for health may be found in all those things you have resisting eating. We need to go back to the days when spinach was popular and Popeye was a hero.
Growing some of our own herbs and veggies in the back yard or flower pots on the balcony is not such a harebrained idea after all, and it’s not just doable but economic. The price of Baby Spinach or Chives at the grocery are ridiculous!
We used to eat whole foods 60 years ago. How did we change? Like always, it was gradual. Just like boiling a frog. You don’t throw it into a kettle of boiling water. As a populace we waded into cool waters and it seemed safe. By the time we discovered otherwise we were hooked. Are we smarter than the frog? Time will tell.
I’ve got some organic strawberry/papaya/raspberry juice calling my name! Later.
