World Cup Pics

Here in South Africa we are getting very excited about the World Cup. We are wearing our yellow Bafana Bafana T-shirts on Fridays.

Above you will see me with a kid in my class. We even have some crazy hats here, as you can see with soccer mad George on the right!

Even my car is decorated with a flag...

Vendors on the streets are selling colourful flags.

Even my dog has her world cup T-shirt. I had to get brown in case she rolls in the dirt.

I am also very blessed to have a girl in my class, Thabi, who was in the opening ceremony. If you watched it (or taped it) it was after that giant dung beetle rolled the soccer ball and the people in red came out. She is the little girl with the orange scrunchie in her hair. Anyway here she is:

Well, as much as we are excited to have the World Cup on our soil, there is an opportunity for you to

The wisdom of teenagers

I had a wonderful time visiting family in East London. You can see Brett and I in the middle at the back. As you can see, he has a huge family as he is the youngest of four children and there were 20 people altogether at his father's 70th birthday celebration.
We stayed with his sister, Heather. Yes, she has the same name as me. :)

She has two teen daughters and a son.

You can see them on either side of us. The younger one is staring into her boyfriend's eyes and the older one is on the other side (she is second year vasity).

They had some wonderful animals at their home. Check out this dog, Gracie, who just wants you to throw her the ball:

And how about this cute cat, Milo, sleeping on my suitcase:

But what really impressed me was the "door art" from these two daughters. Take a look for yourself at these deep words from the younger daughter when she was going through a hard time:

And then some humourous stuff:
And on the other door:

"Life is not measureed by the number of breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away!"
I think that's a good way to end as any :)

A very Merry Christmas!

I have had a wonderful Christmas. My parents have been visiting. For the first time I did Christmas lunch pretty much by myself as my mom only arrived on Christmas day. (She brought some tins! And she also did the trifle!)

On Saturday my uncle cousins and their girlfriends and kids came for lunch, as you can see in this picture. One girlfriend is giving birth to another child in two month's time. And yip, they did ask me when I was going to have kids, to which I said, "I don't know" and left it at that.

We then tried to get a photo of Brett and myself and the dogs which proved to be a bit of a challenge. Well, Coffee, the little adorable brown one, is pretty easy to keep in place, but Milo (the German Shepherd) is more interested in running around. But these two dogs are the loves of my life and we really do love them a lot. :)
We also got to swim. It has been very hot lately. Here I am with Brett and my mom in the pool:

I've written an Ebook on Childlessness!

I have been working very hard these past few days writing an Ebook. It's called: Maybe Next Month: the courageous journey of Childlessness.

I decided that I shoud focus on something that I actually know something about and have personal experience of.

This Ebook also includes loads of ways to shut the relatives up over the holidays with some snappy answers to that question: "So, when are you going to have children?"

Take a look:

My attempt to enter the Ebay

One of the methods that Autopilot Profits suggests to create traffic to your site is to write an Ebook and put it on Ebay. The book itself is just a teaser for something else you are trying to sell, so you can make it cheap.

However I went to a lot of effort to write my ebook on Panic Attacks, even though it would lead to another product. Getting it sold on eEbay proved to be harder than I thought.

The begining part was ok. I filled in the forms. But then, to get people to buy it now at a fixed price I learned that you have to have 5 credit points. Once again, if you are not from the USA, you are discriminated against and you cannot buy this for $5. However the other way is to buy five things, so that you can get your feedback points, which is kind of better because you get something for your money.

So I look for really cheap, interesting Ebooks. I get something on downloading ebooks (looking for alternatives if my site is taken down.) Something on headaches. (I get headaches lot). Marketing Ebooks. How to choose a good shopping cart (No kidding, he's pushing a certain brand, but I need to look at options to make my shopping cart cheaper). A cheap one for artful ways to leave feedback. I then see something super cheap for 5 ways for bringing traffic. This one is from a Russian guy, friendly, but sends me things in a "rav" file I cannot open. When I told him this he sends me another one. Guess what. It's a rav file again.

Now you are probably counting and wondering, hey, you only needed five! That's true. But I got impatient waiting for feedback. You see, it's not enough for you to thank them for the service, they have to thank you for the money, and that can take time. So by Tues when I only had 3 pts still, I just decided to speed things up and get more in hopes the other people would be quicker. But by the end of Wed I still only had 4 pts. So I resigned myself just to putting it up on auction and let people bid. Well, I had 6 people immediately look, but no bids. ($2.97 not that bad, you think?) So the next morning I put it down a bit. By this time I had my 5 points so whoopee I decide to make another ad marketing the same thing, but with a fixed price , buy it now label.

Huge mistake. I am immediately suspended from Ebay. I guess they don't like that. Oops. I do not know if they will let me back in, or if this is the end of my Ebay journey. I am severely warned not to even enter Ebay, so asking for help or why is not an option. I just replied to the emails they sent me, but there is still no responce.

Oh well. You can still buy my ebook, for this really cheap price on
Who needs Ebay, anyway?!
