To make up for not posting in such a long time, I have two freebies for you today.
First, if you’re getting old and crabby the way I am at age 66, you’ve had more than enough for one lifetime of fools knocking on your door or ringing your doorbell to sell you one damn thing or another… especially the endless solicitations from AT&T U-verse.
Well, when I was out for my morning walk and saw the latest duo of AT&T U-verse pitchmen prowling our neighborhood like cats in heat, I hustled home and prepared a “No Solicitation” sign, which I taped to my front storm door. Here’s what it looks like:
The sign must have worked great because nobody knocked and nobody rang the doorbell. Ah, sweet victory!
Since I know many readers of this newsletter also appreciate a peaceful home life without unwanted solicitations, I prepared a zip file with Word, RTF, and PDF versions of my little sign. You’re welcome to download this zipped file with the three unlocked Word documents and one PDF at
Feel free to edit the files to suit your needs and personality and also you have my permission to pass the file(s) to friends and relatives who value their privacy, but, please, do not walk around various neighborhoods knocking on doors to sell copies to strangers!
Today’s Second Freebie: A Bad Breath Remedy
Okay, now let’s turn to today’s second freebie, a little tip for those who struggle with bad breath:
To sweeten the aroma emanating from your mouth, especially if you’ve been eating garlic or other spicy foods, chew on fresh parsley for a few minutes to dissipate that nasty garlic breath.
This simple (and healthy) tip works every time.
Finally, and now that we have the unwelcome solicitation and bad breath issues solved, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out my beginner’s to intermediate level meditation and/or relaxation CD at
For a few days, I’m testing a new price on this CD… in fact, it’s the lowest price ever. If you want a terrific audio tool to help you relax deeply and/or meditate like a pro, I think you’ll be pleased with this little creation of mine.
That’s all for this time.
