Endless Search For Relief

For Pete’s Sake, I Swear!!

Great Horny Toads, Dagnabit, Doggone it, Sonofamonkeysmack!!

Okay, what a potty-mouth and that is just a sample of the tirade people like me say out loud or think to themselves.  In case you are thinking to yourself, well I am not like you, because I would never think, let alone say such words.

Maybe I should explain a bit about who I am or at least who I am (was) trying to be.

Salesman Entrepreneur

Like a TV show that portrays an alcoholic at his / her AA meeting, “hello, my name is insert name here“.  Well, I am not an alcoholic, but, some would consider me a health nut addicted to trying to earn a living online.  We don’t attend meetings but we buy lots of stuff teaching us how to make money online.  Did any of it work?  Sure, I learned how to make a website, write my own articles, sign up as an affiliate and more.  Did it make any money?  The short answer would be “No” but I sure learned a lot.  I can’t spend it but still it counts for something, I think?

What did you learn you might ask quizzically?  Other than the tirade of dirty words at the beginning of the article I learned not everything will work as described.  I learned I’m not as dumb as I thought and I’m also not as smart as I thought.  Nothing sticks around forever which is the basis for this article.  As healthful as I’d like to think I am or working to be I can’t escape death.  Although I am not planning on going anytime soon which is why I buy a lot of aromatherapy / essential oils and healthy food, it is going to happen (someday).  Also, it is 100% guaranteed to everyone regardless of how they react / respond to what I sell.  Because, if you buy through my websites affiliate links you will still suffer the same end as those that didn’t buy.  You know nothing is guaranteed except taxes and death.

That doesn’t mean I’m quitting but the part about making money online through affiliate links sometimes causes my language to be more outlandish.  Who in their right mind would say sonofamonkeysmack?  I can’t quit the website yet because I just renewed it for 2 more years. Dagnabit, could have saved some effort, time and money if I hadn’t renewed on time.

What R U Nutso?

Endless Search for Relief

Endless Search for Relief

So that you do not think I have gone completely bonkers, the ding dong links for one of my affiliates is disappearing.  All that labor, all those things I bought to try for a healthy life, all the hours toiling over articles that may not be read or the readers never subscribe – just poof – will disappear and end the “endless search for relief” (see picture).

Not only that the day the links disappear is a very important date in history. October 21, 2016 exactly 64 years after my thrilling entrance dirtying up every cloth diaper around – my Mountain Rose affiliate links are caput, finito, done dirtying up my website.


Just when I thought I might make a paycheck from affiliate marketing. But no, it is now just me, my social security (for however long that lasts), and my VA compensation to carry me into retirement. There will be no extra affiliate income to pad my penchant for guitar videos, or for extra healthy food or whiff of an essential oil to boost the economy of ex-affiliates let alone my own.

Okay, now you got the idea I am sure. the Mountain Rose affiliate links will work until my birthday & then sayonara, farewell into that place in the sky reserved for those who jerk the rug out from under us struggling here.  Is there anyone interested in buying a website?  I’ll sell dirt cheap & if you get DE through my affiliate link you get the dirt too.

By the way, after my birthday, Mountain Rose will still be in business and selling super quality products that do work.  It is just the affiliate links will have to be gone through on websites around the world to fix, delete, cause extra work for those who are still not making any income from it.  One more thing I just learned, I hate spell check and left words spelled the way I wrote them. Finito ended.

Can Delicious Snacks Actually Be Good For You?

I remember when I was a kid, sneaking into the kitchen being able to get the lid off the cookie jar without mom hearing it. It wouldn’t be until all of a sudden someone else wanted a cookie and found that several were already gone.  I always got the blame because the two sibling jewels I had never did anything like that or always got caught if they tried. I never did tell anyone the trick to getting that lid off.  I bet you did the same or similar sneaky snack stealing too when your mom wasn’t looking, right?

carob-fudgeWell, ex-bodybuilding champion Carolyn Hansen says those days are over if she gets her way.  She says mothers everywhere are positively encouraging their children to help themselves to her dessert and snack recipes. There are over 200 of them.

The reason hers are healthier you might ask?  The ingredients!!  No sugar, flour, or butter to be found in these recipes – just healthy natural ingredients.  Preperation is a breeze too because no cooking either, for the most part.  All moms with a blender will be proficient in the kitchen and keep the kids satisfied.

That’s the conclusion Carolyn Hansen reaches in her collection of recipe books she calls Blended Bites.  At first glance you are thinking – bland- no taste – or maybe it might remind you of experiments mom used when she was out of an ingredient & substituted something else.  We all know the things that make snacks taste good, butter, or in my mom’s case “lard”, white sugar, flour are what makes a snack tasty and why it is a snack not torture and we know those ingredients contribute to chronic disease in later life.  Too much sugar and butter in the diet are prime causes of obsesity, diabetes, and coronary disease.

Carolyn Hansen knew she needed to find alternatives to the desserts and snacks she found so difficult to remove from her diet.  Being a competitive bodybuilder she was determined to work in the kitchen and find a way to keep herself from ruining her bodybuilding progress she made in the gym by eating unhealthy treats when her willpower faded.

Like anything worth doing the going was difficult.  There’s a lot to do when you begin throwing out the staple ingredients of recipes generations of years old.  But Carolyn persevered through all the mistakes along the way, and came up with desserts and snacks that she could share with her bodybuilder friends. The same treats that you can share with your family and friends and know that you are helping them maintain their health for years to come.

By now you have read enough that you will want to get your hands on Carolyn’s recipes for desserts and snacks.  Snacks the kids (and you) won’t have to sneak or to feel guilty about eating the next time you have a craving for something delicious. Be sure to check out Carolyn Hansen’s books at Blended Bites.

Learn how to take control of your health with your blender and whip up mouth-watering desserts and snacks that might have the kids in your neighborhood stopping by for a sample. Want to read even more about Carolyn & her books then Click Here!

Benefits of Using Magnesium Oil

Benefits of Magnesium Oil

For a few months I’ve been hearing about magnesium oil and how people are getting relief from a variety of ailments.  I take a variety of reported “healthy” items from Tahitian Noni Juice, Mangoxan juice plus vitamins & if  weather permits we walk around the block which is about 2.5 miles.  In the
winter & wild weather we don’t walk for exercise. I guess I ought to say I also make the beet, carrot, apple juice combination, fire cider, kefir, kombucha too.  I’m juiced no matter what. I was making my own ginger ale but it quit getting fizzy and I can’t figure out why.

Ancient-Mineral-Magnesium-Since before I started drawing my social security it seems little issues pop up that make me look for a “healthy” item to fix it. So in looking around the internet or saw it on facebook I found someone with my ailments and they were saying how magnesium oil worked for them.  Then I think what the heck,
I already take enough stuff, eat healthy, etc.  The last thing I thought I would need is another  way to fix an ailment.

To make a long story short for a sciatica problem I started massaging in magnesium oil (home made).  It’s working I think.  I had the problem a few years ago and it healed with exercise, heat pads, cold packs etc.  It took six months. This time it has taken three months and the only addition to the exercise & heat & cold is magesium oil.  The problem seemed pretty bad almost enough to make a doctor visit but it started healing up.  Patience isn’t one of my virtues but I could tell something was working.  Recipe follows so read on please.  Continue reading
