Are You Over 50 and Looking For A (COOL) Job? ;-)

If you are, you might want to check out this inspiring article from TIME.COM about some cool jobs landed by a number of older workers.

Apparently there is a definite upswing and change for the better, in terms of a lot of employers re-thinking their hiring practices, when it comes to considering older adults for a position.

IMO, this is definitely a positive and long-overdue shift in attitude! ;-)

Happy Reading, Weekend and Week Ahead! ;-)

PS: And speaking of reading, what’s on your kindle/book list right now?
I just got a copy of  the new: X by Sue Grafton and I’m really enjoying it so far. More about the book when I finish it. 


Hello Again and A Summer Haiku :-)


I can’t believe it’s almost September, can you? ;-)

The summer has just flown by for me.

I’m still busy with some summer commitments and activities but hope to be back to regular blogging in the next couple of weeks. 

I hope you have had a wonderful summer so far and it’s not quite over yet, is it?

How has your weather been?

Thankfully, the temps. have finally cooled down, here in BC. It’s been a VERY hot, dry summer with too many forest fires reeking havoc. :-(

See You Soon and Have A Wonderful Week!!! G


A Summer Haiku and So Long for Now…


I’m taking a blog break for the next few weeks.

Plan to spend more time outside and to work on several projects in progress too.

You can read more about what me AND Mr. Cheddar are working on here. ;-)

I wish all my readers a happy, healthy and memorable summer. May it be your best one ever! :-)

I’ll be back to blogging before autumn, hope to see you then.

♥ Lots of Hugs and Happy Father’s Day too! ♥


Want to Know How to Add a Print Option to Your Posts?


I thought it would be nice to be able to add a print option for some of my blog posts, particularly when I post a recipe over at: Veggies, Yarns & Tails.

I was thinking it would be a bit techie-intensive to do this, but then I started looking around the Web and found: (click to visit their site)

Not only can you add a print option to a particular post, you can also use their (FREE) service with a variety of blogging platforms: Blogger,,…that was an added bonus.

I know from past experience that some add-ons are workable with a lot of the platforms, but not the free version of WordPress (.com) but this one is! ;-) Looks like it’s fairly easy to use too. 

It’s also mentioned at the site, so I’m guessing it’s going to work just fine. I plan to give it a try, very soon, when I post my next Veggies…recipe.

Hope you found this helpful and if you HAVE already tried, do let me know how it worked for you. 

Happy Week to All, G :-)


Book Review: The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy

The Best $1 You Will Ever Spend! ;-)

subconscious mind book

After reading about Cynthia Stafford’s amazing lottery win ($112 MILLION) and how she credited much of her success to Joseph Murphy’s work, I decided to give this kindle book a try.

The Power of the Subconscious Mind,

exceeded my expectations, and in many ways.

I’ve read a lot of LOA books, especially in the past couple of years…some good, some so-so, some just “get rich quick” schemes for the authors, or so it often seems. And when it comes to the older books on this topic, they often seem dated and not relevant for people living in today’s world.

The Power of the Subconscious Mind is a winner, in all respects.

It IS extremely relevant, for anyone who is looking to add more abundance and success to their life.

It is NOT preachy, although it’s obvious that the author did have strong religious beliefs, he doesn’t “preach” or push a particular creed or religion at any time in this book.

His message is a universal one, for everyone seeking a happier, healthier and more prosperous life. And who isn’t?? ;-)

The practical advice in this book is easy to follow and powerful. Enjoyable and not a chore to follow through with and continue to do so!! A nice change from some other books on the topic I’ve read and gave up on.

I make it a point to re-read a couple of chapters, a few of times during the week, as a good reminder and pick me up. I’ve had some excellent results already, following many of the suggestions in this book.

No, I haven’t won 112 MILLION as Cynthia Stafford did, but I’ve had a lot of smaller wins so far, and not just when it comes to financial gains.

And as Murphy so wisely states in this book, money and prosperity ARE very important, but they are not the whole story when it comes to living a successful and happy life.

If you are debating about what Law of Attraction book to buy, you won’t be sorry if you choose this one!


An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend :-)

wellness thoughts

The mind-body connection is so powerful. :-)

And sadly, that power is often forgotten when it is needed most.

I always try to dwell on good thoughts these days; focusing on what’s positive, throughout each day.

I also strive to let go of the petty annoyances that come up; in the big picture, they really mean little or nothing at all. 

That kind of positive energy and thought pattern can also have a profound effect on how we are feeling and on our overall health. I know personally just how well this works.

I’ve “been there” when it comes to talking about and dwelling on every little ache and pain and my larger health concerns too, over the years. I know now without any doubt, that dwelling on health and wellness at all times DOES impact reality in significant ways, if we stick with it. 

If you haven’t already, try it! You will be amazed by the power of your subconscious mind if you let it work its wonders.

The body/mind connection. It works for or against us, every day. The choice is ours.

Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend! :-)
