Chilean Miners.

The whole world is looking at Chile at the moment. At the time of writing this post the 15th miner was taken up to the surface. It’s absolutely fantastic that they are being rescued at last. They will be welcomed by their families, rescuers, their fellow countrymen and women and the worlds media.

What must it have been like to be stuck down in the darkness for so long, 69 days, is that not amazing. The best thing about this is that were no casualties or fatalities. After the hype has gone away, and on their road to recovery what will life be like. One thing for sure their lives have changed forever. No doubt there will be books written and a movie. I hope they are left in peace to get back to some sort of normal life.

They will have plenty of invitations from everywhere I reckon. One of these invites, according to the press is an invite to Old Trafford, Manchester to watch Manchester United. The invite which I think isa fantastic thing to do was organised by Sir Bobby Charlton. If they accept I hope they have a brilliant time. I don’t see that for quite a while until they have recovered from their ordeal.

Well folks, that’s it for another day. Will be back soon. Take care in the meantime.



This is my first post for a while. I did update the “About” page but that’s about it. I am waiting for a reply from Paula regarding my Masterclass, so hopefully I should receive something today. I need to move on. However, I have been watch videos on different subject to do with WordPress in the last couple of days. A friend wants me to build him a web site for his business. I promised hin months ago. I am attempting to build a static site using WordPress so I have been looking at video tutorials etc. Any guidance is appreciated. I also found this site very interesting The site is very useful. A few videos to watch, excellent for the newbies, me included. I am also waiting for a new programme by John Thornhill to come out. It’s pre launch today and launch next week. When I receive anything I will post it on here at the earliest opportunity.

My next problem…Ezine Articles. I have one article on there. It’s been there a few months but the hassle to get it live was amazing. Don’t get me wrong I suppose they have standards and don’t like affiliate links or whatever but sometimes I feel like giving up. I submitted an article last week and waited a few days for a reply. I got one but there is a problem so I am now waiting to see what the problem is. I e mailed them from within and waiting for a reply so I can correct the problem(s).

That’s it for now folks until the next time, have a nice one.


Highland Fresh Soap

Highland Fresh is located in the village of Milton of Campsie about 10 miles from Glasgow. Their aim is to bring you their finest handmade soaps, using only the best of ingredients. Olive Oil, Palm and also Coconut Oil are used to luxuriate and moisterurise your skin and also includes essential oils and natural extracts to compliment your skins particular needs.

NETTLE Soap: Hand Made, Hand Cut, Hand Wrapped. There is no Essential Oil in this soap,  pure Nettle Extract is added giving an aroma free bar, apparently good for Eczema and Psoriasis.Your Highland Fresh is hand wrapped in MacKenzie Tartan. On the website there is a testimonial from a lady whose son suffered from Eczema and  Molluscum Contagiosum. She was told by her GP that nothing would clear the latter, well, the nettle soap did. Worth a look. Stuart does more than one brand of soap, I wanted to highlight the Nettle soap after reading the letter sent to Stuart and how it affected his Eczema, for the good of course.

If you want to check out  Stuarts website and see for yourself, go to:

Apart from the shop Stuart has a passion for fishing. He is a regular on the Lochs of Scotland although I am still waiting for my first trout, Hint Hint!I believe he enters a lot of competitions so maybe when the season begins again next year I’ll get some fresh trout.

Another passion for Stuart, and he takes this very seriously. He is a member of a Beatles tribute band. They are awseome. They have gigs nearly every weekend, at the very least they have most Saturdays booked. To listen to  “Penny Lane” go to: You can listen to a couple of tracks. I am sure you will enjoy.


Masterclass Update

This will be my last update for  a while. I finished the 28 day trial but I have had to postpone the rest of the course until further notice. I cannot now access the videos of the first 4 weeks as my 28 days have been and gone. I intend to come back and finish the course in the very near future. These last few weeks have been amazing, looking forward to each week for the next set of videos. I will be posting on here as often as possible just to keep it going. I didn’t even get to know any students but I expected that anyway. Good luck to the students who are on the course at the moment. I was looking forward to week 6, I think that was the list building one.

I will attempt to put an opt in form on my other blog. There will be videos somewhere. I am leaving this blog for the course when I come back, although as I said before I will continue to post.

I had actually received week 5 although I am not sure if I was supposed. I watched the video but didn’t take any action. Week 5 actually came on day 28 so I assume that after midnight I was locked out.

I downloaded Camtasia 7 last week, you can get it on trial.  I was going to attempt a video then post, so I’ll probably do one before the trial runs out and post it on my site. Quite a snazzy bit of kit. Think it will take some getting used to.

I am looking forward to getting back on the course.


Newspaper Article

I read an an article about a young woman who won’t go to work but “screw” the system. She goes to her local Job Centre every fortnight to sign on and state that she has been looking for work, when in fact she wasn’t. She got herself pregnant after two miscarriages. She now has her own house which is paid for by the state, she gets £160 a fortnight, I believe and gets stuff for her baby. She also has Sky television. She also likes to party and gets bad hangovers.

When she goes for an interview she doesn’t dress properly for it, looks uninterested so she doesn’t get the job.What is happening to this once great coutry, our Armed Forces are dwidling. Once a great Naval force, we will soon have  the second smallest Navy after Portugal.

When you get people who work their backsides off to earn a living and then you read about people who refuse to work and live off the State. I hope that this government do what they are promising to do and stop peoples benefits or reduce them to make them go and look for work.

I will be back soon..


Masterclass Update

I am on Week 4. I have saved my Header/Footer to my desktop although I had before I watched the video. In the last 4 weeks I have learned a lot. I knew quite a bit but that didn’t stop me watching the videos. You think you know it all but watching the videos there is always something you didn’t know about. I am more confident in IM than I have ever been before and that has to do a lot with John.

FTP, that has been the bain of my life. Soon after joining my current hosting company I was in my cpanel and for some reason I changed username and password but I could still log in. I had one problem. Every time I logged on using Filezilla I didn’t have a public_html folder. I kept uninstalling and re installing Filezilla to no avail. No public_html folder. I couldn’t get round it. I had bought Johns Powerseller 3 and I couldn’t upload the sales page. I contacted John and after giving him my details he uploaded it for me. Still, I had no folder.

Did I find my public_html  folder….YES, I did, but only by accident. I submitted tickets to the Masterclass Support. Paula Brett, (bless her, she must have been hacked off with me, although she did say she was not.) Anyway, I explained the situation. She sent me a reply with a screenshot of Filezilla showing my my public_html folder. I logged in and to my dismay I couldn’t see my folder.

What was I doing wrong? Well, at the beginning of the post I mentioneed I changed the username/ password. That was it. In her reply to me Paula reminded me of my password. That triggered something in my brain. I hunted out my Information regarding my cpanel account. I tried, logged in using my original username/password. BINGO, guess what appeared when I logged in through Filezilla, public_html folder. At long last, I then continued with the video for uploading my themes.

That’s it folks. Time to upload header and footer.


What To Sell On EBay.

What do people sell on eBay?? Well, all you have to do is go on and have a look. I don’t think there isn’t much that you can buy on eBay. In my previous post I mentioned stuff I sold, initially odds and sods from the house, thingS that were no longer required.

I have tried dropshipping. I sold a few dvd’s but not as much as I thought would have. Maybe I’m not going the right way about it, I don’t know. I had an eBay shop last year and I had quite a lot of dvd’s in it but didn’t do much good. There are also fees. If you have limited funding and you have eBay fees it’s not worth it if you’re not selling. I could have in hindsight promoted the shop better. I’ll have learnt from that experience so when I open my next shop I will be prepared.

Going back to John Thornhill, his shop is unbelievable, full of digitial products on dvd. Products that are, I believe selling well. I will be following Johns methods on the e book front.  Another marketer, a student of Johns has a market on ebay. He sells prints and is doing well, I believe. His name is Stuart Turnbull and if you click on his link on the right side of the page under “Other Cool Blogs” you can find more about it.

Until the next time…


Selling On Ebay

I started selling on eBay about 2 years ago. A friend and myself converted my shed into an office. We got it lined, plasterboard, painted inside, carpet tiles, desks, computers etc. I had power line from my house to the shed, got a telephone line etc etc. It was a fully functional office, we were chuffed to bits. We then got stuff from our respective houses that we didn’t use anymore, books, games, CD’s DVD’s etc and started to put them on eBay. We went into Glasgow to buy stuff cheaply then put on eBAY. We  were stuff bit by bit but nothing major. I signed up to a dvd drop ship company to see if we could push videos. I think I sold 8 or 9 so that was not worthwhile.

I opened a shop and put quite a lot of dvd’s into the shop but nothing ever came out of that. I then followed Johns Powerseller 3.0 and put that on eBay. I sold one, but that was enough for me. I knew it could be done. The shop was closed down because my friend and I stopped working together. At the moment there is no shop. There won’t be for a while until I’m up and running with the Masterclass. One other thing I bought from John in the past is the Profit From Plr: John takes you through the process of re writing an ebook from choosing your niche to traffic generation. Click on the link for more info.

“John Thornhills your man, if he can’t help, who the hell can”.

The way forward is selling e books on eBay, I think. If I follow Johns way of doing it I should be ok. Saying that, with me, I’ll probably take twice as long.

Until the next post….

Masterclass Students

I recently signed up for John Thornhills Masterclass Trial. I am just about finished Week 2. So far so good, now looking forward to Week 3. After watching the last video of Week 2. I clicked on the link below to see a list of all the students. I couldn’t believe it, all these people went through John’s Masterclass. I recognised a few names, in fact I’m probably signed up to a couple of them.

A couple of months ago John was sending me an e mail every day or every few days with a link to a testimonials from his students. They’re obviously very proud of what they have achieved over a period of 16 weeks or so. At one time I was getting miffed at John sending me these e mails. I didn’t want to complain or stop subscription because I have respect for what John himself has achieved.

I read all the testimonials and felt a slight pang of jealousy of what these people have achieved. I particualerly liked Stuart Turnbulls video of him going down to the beach on a nice windy day with his laptop, and his photographs of his village in Ireland. I was supposed to have a chat with Stuart on Skype, I couldn’t make it so I didn’t want to bother him again. I’m sure I’ll meet up with him in the future. Another student who springs to mind is Jacinta Dean, all the way from the other side of the world. She even left a message on my other blog.

All I can say is I hope I reach the standard past students have reached. If I could make $10 in my first month then I would be happy, because after years of trying there will be an incoming column as well as a permanent outgoing one.

There was something I had to laugh about. I was watching one of the videos. John was showing how to post. He called a category “Other Cool Blogs” and the title he gave was “The Best Blog On The Planet. I was looking at some blogs from John s classes and they had a cctegoery with the same title, as I have. I clicked on one thinking it would be their own but it wasn’t it was Johns. See how popular you are mate. Actually, it’s up there with the best of them.
