Pouring Rain and the Sun is Shining...

Are you familiar with the phrase "it never rains but it pours" yes, no, maybe? Well what I mean is this. I put my "Brain Rules" book on hold so that I could read the book "Midlife Man" and what do you think happens? The book "The Brain That Changes Itself" arrives at the library for me.

So since I have had this book on order for months and I really wanted to read it, I decided to fit it into my reading schedule as well. So to meet the challenge I will try to read two hours each day to get both books read in time for the library return date. Then I can go back to reading "Brain Rules" at the rate of one hour per day.

I am still getting two to three walks in a day. (about an hour each) and I get to mow grass again this week . (two hours on Friday) I already have a half day volunteer work and a full day of office work in so far this week. Today is my rest day. Tomorrow I have a road trip to Charlottetown (half a day) and on Saturday to Alberton. (a long day) Sounds like a busy week!

Heater update:

The guys have all picked up their heaters except one and he is picking it up this week. Everyone seems very happy with the quality of the heat provided and the fact that they are almost cool to the touch and are soooo quiet. The boys are now anxious to see just what the cost of electricity will be to run them. (reports from other users in our area tell us that the cost should run about 20 cents per hour or less. (by the way another coffee buddy just ordered two more heaters for his shop.... that makes ten now in the area and there are a few others just waiting to see how they preform before deciding to get one)

So even though it is raining books and heaters right now, all is good and the sun is still shining brightly here in paradise.

Till next post...Smiles :o)


p.s. Since all of the hoopla over the economic situation in the States (USA) over the past few days here is an article written by a friend of mine that you just may find interesting. "Economic Manifest" Wolfgang (Wolfie) is of Austrian decent and does put a very interesting spin on things. I hope that you enjoy reading what he has written.

A Couple Of Updates

First Update:

I got a phone call this afternoon to tell me that the six edenPURE heaters have arrived.

So just three weeks after placing the order they are here. My coffee buddies are all anxious to get them home and start using them (the weather man is forecasting sun and warm weather till at least Monday) lol

There will be lots of opportunities to test them out. (except Ralph is leaving for Florida in three weeks) He might just have to wait till he comes back for his Christmas break in December.

Howard is not going down till the third week of January ( at least) and Jim is still undecided if he is going or not.

The other three will be here all winter so there should be lots of opportunities as I said.

They are all meeting tomorrow morning around 11ish to come get the heaters and take them home.

I will keep you posted on how things go.

Second Update:

I got the book "Midlife Man" by Art Hister at the library last night so now I will have to put "Brain Rules" (the book) on pause while I get "Midlife Man" read.

Did you like the 10 tips to train your brain? I do try to read for at least an hour a day.

Oh and by the way when I was at the Library the Librarian told me about a writers group starting at the end of September and meeting one night a week for six weeks (I think) so I put my name on the list. (I can use all the help I can get)

Anyway that was just a quick update on a couple of previous posts.

Thanks for your patience and please post your comments as to what you think and what you would like me to blog about.

And a Thank You:

A BIG thank you to you the readers for stopping by to read my posts. I am amazed that reader traffic is increasing daily and a greater number of you are finding me through the search engines. (awesome!)

I have been trying hard to keep focused on exercises, diet and things that promote a healthy me. (and you)

Please tell me if you want it to be things other than that.

I hope you are having a great day!

Smiles :o)

Infrared Residential Heaters Will Change The Way Your Heat Your House

Infrared residential heaters will change the way your heat your house. This sounds like a bold statement, but it is true. In an era when energy prices are shooting through the roof, infrared residential heaters will offer you a way to cut your heating bill by 35% to 50%. And not only that, it will give you a safer, healthier and more comfortable heating solution.

The main benefit of infrared residential heaters is that they can reduce your heating bill by as much as half. You can already buy infrared residential heaters from us at low prices, but with this kind of savings, they are practically free! When your heating bill is that much less, the heaters will pay for themselves in a matter of months. Once they have paid themselves off, every heating bill will be like putting money in your pocket – which will be a nice change from what you are going through right now.

Not only do infrared residential heaters save you money, but they do a better job than conventional gas or electrical heaters. With infrared residential heaters, you will not experience the notoriously spotty heating produced by conventional heaters. Infrared residential heaters will heat your room evenly from floor to ceiling, wall to wall, without any cold pockets.

Infrared residential heaters also leave the air in your room better off than conventional heaters. Conventional heaters can leave the air in your room dry and harsh. Not only that, but they can push dangerous fumes into the air, and drive up carbon monoxide levels. And forced air-heating systems, such as wood stoves or kerosene space heaters, can actually force contaminants into your air. Infrared residential heaters do none of these things – they do not change carbon monoxide levels, and do not release any contaminants. All they do is heat your room evenly and efficiently.

Another great advantage that infrared residential heaters have is they are far more safe than conventional heating sources. Localized heat sources such as baseboards heat rooms by becoming extremely hot themselves. That means they can harm pets or children who accidentally come into contact with them, or even start house fires. Infrared residential heaters, however, do not heat up to dangerous levels. That means that you can rest easy knowing your family is safe and warm with infrared residential heaters.

Infrared residential heaters represent the future of home heating. But while the technology is advanced, it is available today. At, we are proud to offer you the Sun*Twin Quartz Infrared Portable Heater Technology. For an incredibly economical price, you can start heating your house with this amazing technology today. We offer two convenient sizes – the STW 750 for areas up to 400 sq. feet, and the STW 1500, for up to 1,000 sp. feet. And they are conveniently sized – small enough to fit into any room, but powerful enough to make sure it is warm.

We have so much faith in this technology all of our infrared residential heaters come with a 60-day money back guarantee! Do not continue paying high gas prices just to heat your home – you might as well try keeping warm by burning your money! There is a better way. Try out an infrared residential heater today and be amazed at how comfortable your home can be. With our guarantee, you have nothing to lose. Visit us today and start saving money.
