Tue, 06 Oct 2009 13:11:56 -0500

I often say this to people only to have them give silly examples of things which they cannot do. For instance they will say: "I really want to fly to the moon by flapping my arms; how can I do that?" or : "I'm seventy-five but I want to become the heavyweight boxing champion of the world!"

Self Improvement Tips - Boosting Your PSI Belief

Tue, 29 Sep 2009 09:31:02 -0500

PSI (pronounced "sigh"), means Positive Self Image. We should all have a Positive Self Image if we are to be happy, successful, loving and complete human beings.

How much it will prevent you, depends entirely upon the depth of your Negative Self Image...

Interior Design Ideas - The Perfect Entrance Hall

Sat, 19 Sep 2009 18:03:28 -0500

Although it is traditional for furnishings to ring the perimeter of a hall, if space allows, it is a great idea to place a round table at the centre of the room. When topped with a collection of beautifully bound books or prettily framed photographs, and perhaps a large bowl of dried or fresh flowers lit from above with a downlighter, this can form a stunning focal point and serve as the centre to your 'roundabout'.

Sat, 19 Sep 2009 18:00:43 -0500

Interior Design Ideas - Storage and Lighting Tips For Connecting Rooms and Hallways

Sat, 19 Sep 2009 17:55:34 -0500

Even in the very smallest of connecting spaces you can often find a cranny where storage can be accommodated. In many cases, by filling in a recess in this way, the architectural symmetry of a room can be much improved at the same time. Drawing up a room plan will reveal just where these spots are. If you want these newly created housings to appear as part of the structure, the surface of the door front should be treated in exactly the same way as the rest of the wall space (wallpapered or painted) and the door furniture should be minimal.

Interior Design Ideas For Connecting Rooms and Entrance Halls

Sat, 19 Sep 2009 14:36:54 -0500

Linkvana - One Way Links the Easy Way

Thu, 12 Jun 2008 08:05:15 -0500

One of the really neat features of Linkvana is that it will add the links to your sites gradually over time, which makes it look a lot more natural to the search engines. If a new site suddenly gets hundreds of links in a short space of time, it smacks of "automated submissions" and the search engines are well aware of natural "human managed" link patterns, and anything that looks "non human" can result in your site being "sandboxed" - which means you site disappears from the rankings for several months - effectively wasting all that work you just did. So making your link building pattern look natural is vital to success.
