Have Fun Cooking Gluten Free

The end of summer fresh garden delights have got me using my detective prowess in search of more gluten free low glycemic recipes. I'm a food sensitive eater due to some ancestral gene thingimagigis (I hate to offend with the "mutations" word!) and so I make do without gluten whenever I can.

Actually, it has become fun detective work for me, and I'd like to share a cookbook with gourmet healthy recipes that are fun, quick and easy. "Fun With GF/LG Food" is the downloadable e-book for yummy, fun to make recipes for most food allergy prone folks.

Bonus, updates and a money back guarantee make this book a no-brainer. Sufferers from diabetes and celiacs will also enjoy this allergy-free cooking. Happy Cooking!

Remembering Oscar Wilde

The indomitable Oscar Wilde comes to mind time and again as I fathom what thought is. Here is the quote that got me fathoming:
"All thought is immoral. Its very essence is destruction. If you think of anything, you kill it. Nothing survives being thought of." It is from
A Woman of No Importance.

Yikes, that is a confounding quote that I happened to memorize. When I find myself feeling sophisticated and owning a witty, authoritative thought I am gleeful until I recall Oscar, the greatest critic of all.

A few of his quotes are:

  • Experience is the name we all give to our mistakes.

  • Society often forgives the criminal, but it never forgives the dreamer.

  • Democracy is simply the bludgeoning of the people. For the people. By the people.

  • No man is ever rich enough to buy back his past.
He still interests many people as the lively humanist, cynic, playwright, and entertaining historical figure. I was gifted with Oscar Wilde the fine biography by Richard Ellmann. It is worth owning if you want to know the real Oscar.

Another favorite that I own is The Complete Works of Oscar Wilde: Stories, Plays, Poems & Essays. I didn't fathom how prolific and genius his work was until I started reading this wonderful anthology.

Long live Oscar Wilde! "The evolution of man is slow. The injustice of men is great."

Are You Wanting Sexy Abs?

Ha! Maybe like some of you, I have tried many different exercises for sexy abs and a better looking core. I have always resorted to anything resembling dance for the best results. Earlier in my 20's thru 40's past life I actually took many great dance classes - jazz, ballet, modern. Then the pilates bit and joining a gym, etc. Yes, I did the deal.

Next, life with not great knees and all sorts of new aches 'n pains entered in. My core became a bit extended, and the desire to get somewhat of a six pack began to obsess in my brain. Luckily for me, that translated into trying out the Core Rhythms DVD'S.

They are the answer to sexy abs! Believe me, I have been high energy Latin dancin' with these delightful dvd's. The music is exhilirating, the instructors are supportive and great to watch, the moves are senuous, and the workout is fun. Sweat is plentiful as I feel my abs doing the work. The DVD's are especially helpful because they are set up so you can view front, back and/or click on help for a slow thorough breakdown of a move. It really isn't rocket science to put together some great dance moves and get great results. I highly recommend them.

Here is a video to get an idea for yourself. Enjoy!

My Affiliate Program Comparisons

Here we go with my affiliate program comparisons. As a boomer searching for the real deal, I tried all of the below. Please know that they are all worthy however only one really offers the highest ratings.



go directly to WEALTHY AFFILIATE

WA is the most comprehensive online affiliate program available. It is of university stature for the in-depth fabulous amenities. Compared to the others, this wins highest ratings. The traffic marketing techniques and training include ppc for Google and Yahoo, article marketing and other free methods. The communication is top notch because the forum is simply the best of the best. Advanced members often offer solutions and tutorials, PLUS one-on-one coaching with Kyle and Carson ( founders) is available too. An 8-week program to get one's feet wet is suggested and even though I knew something about affiliate marketing- this is truly a real education- ppc is not the only method of driving traffic! Included in the low monthly fee ($29.00/month if pay for the year otherwise $39.00/month): training tutorials, world wide web renowned forum access, 6 ready made niche kits (1 per month) to use and promote, site rubix web building and hosting, feeder sites, my-linker, and did I mention quick communication? This alone is worth the low monthly fee. Plus I'm making online friends with other boomers that need help! Really, I only have to research the forum to see if my question is in there or I ask it and the answer comes quickly! The communication is that from other affiliates who really want me to succeed.

Top Notch E-Book

This e-book or (hardcover) includes updates (just save your receipt) plus the excellent Net Profits Today newsletter and forum access, all for the $47.00 price and lifetime access. That is good value. SAH really explains what affiliate programs are, ways an affiliate gets paid, how to set up Wordpress.org (not the free version), hosting program to use, ways to drive traffic, questions to ask affiliate programs before joining and much more. I would suggest it to anyone for a great overview of becoming a super affiliate. Ros Gardner is well known throughout the affiliate marketing world, and she does a great job telling what not to do as well.

Strictly PPC

The come on to this was "cloning Amit's mind." Amit, being another successful super affiliate who offers a great ppc school. I did spend lots for the school modules which are excellent, plus I was a "boot camp" member, plus I paid extra for the niche detective (gives a niche of the month with keywords, etc.). The two monthly fees were actually for forum access, and the niche detective. I eventually dropped both, but have lifetime access to the modules, and many good webinars. I learned a lot more in depth about Google adwords, adwords editor, and legalities with affiliate marketing and landing pages. I did implement what I learned, and I did do much better in my ppc advertising. The forum was not great as far as getting questions answered by senior members, and the owners never chimed in, so that wasn't great communication. Also, the ticket system to get a question answered (outside the forum) was slow. All in all it is a valuable course for anyone wanting to just learn ppc marketing with Google adwords.

My First Affiliate Experience

A personal story accompanied by a training in pay-per-click, via a beginners adwords tutorial e-book, are the guts of Six Figure Yearly. Different ways to build a website are offered, and 2 ready-made choices are available. I purchased both and tried to promote them with my new Google adwords training. The only problem was poor communication with the affiliate management for the sites. I never received any replies to my queries, and when one is new, that really sucks. Although there were some tips to use, they also promised updates, which I never received, and once again, no one ever replied to my queries. Despite the difficulties, the program does sell (if you want to promote it), and it was an excellent newbie learning experience - about what keywords are, and how to begin with Google adwords. I believe the communication problem has changed for the better since I was learning it. It's definitely worth a try.
