GO! Tell us the word for your City!

Posted on May 2nd, 2008 by Jim

Emma here having just read this excellent book ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ . Not only chick-lit – it should appeal to all who enjoy a funny and well written read.

Whilst in Rome, Italy during her year out, Elizabeth is asked to think of one word that sums the place up.

She replies that Rome to her is ‘sex’.


Here in Dubai my word for this City is ‘juxtaposition’ and Jim’s is ‘Surreal’.

What is the one word that sums up where you live? Do tell! One place – one word.

Go! Tell me something about your Dad

Posted on April 8th, 2008 by angesbiz

Hey, I haven’t been quite myself of late and so I have posted an article over at Buzzing with Ange which should explain it for you in more detail.  What I would like from you is to share something about your dad, preferably something inspiring and light hearted if you please.  The reason being that my dad is lying in a hospital bed waiting to undergo open heart surgery and I am feeling a little vulnerable at the moment.

I am the designated driver for all his doctors appointments and in that time we have shared in the car, we have been able to talk about stuff and I have learned a few more things about him in the last few weeks that may not have come up in conversation otherwise.

Here’s just a few of the things I love about my dad… Joe…

Nothing is ever too much trouble for him.

When I first moved out of home, he used to come and mow my lawn for me.

He loves being surrounded by his grandchildren and couldn’t be happier when they are visiting.

He always invites Mormons and Jehova’s witnesses in and compares bibles with them over a cup of tea.

He knows every neighbour in the street by name and takes their bins in after rubbish night.

He has never intruded in my life even though I know he hasn’t agreed with everything I have ever done.

There’s heaps more but I would like to hear from you  and what it is about your dad that makes you smile :)

PS. Just in case, I am not looking for sympathy for my dad’s condition here, just the good stuff!

Go! Smell love through the eyes of a child!

As some of you may know, I’m the web designer for our local community magazine published bi-monthly by an old friend. I do a lot of the upkeep as well and am always keen to see it grow and become a really useful online resource.

 The last issue had a page about ‘What does love mean?’ – a group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 yr olds and the answers they got back were delightful,  broader and deeper than any of them imagined! I thought a group hug by way of an example might be in order….

(you can visit the website here – – look at issue 5, page 54 for the full rundown.)

GO! Get my Book – and only Pay What YOU Like!

Get the Life you Love and Live it

Arvind here, fresh from a day of early March sunshine – it seems like it is already Spring!

To mark the new season of hope and fresh beginnings, I am running a special offer for my book “Get the Life you Love and Live it” – you only pay what YOU like, plus postage and packing……

GO! Get your copy today

The book usually retails for £9.99 (U.S $20) plus postage, but you can now get it for whatever price you wish to pay plus postage, anywhere in the world. You simply pay what you feel the book is worth to you.

(Keep it quiet, but apart from the postage, you can even get it for FREE!)

So why am I making this offer?

I feel I am now back in the swing of things after a few months of grieving, rest, reflection and recuperation and it is time to celebrate life with renewed vigour and energy. This is my way of giving something back to the people out there who have been so supportive of me over the last few difficult months.

Also, I really believe in the value my book offers, and I want to spread my message and work as widely as possible. My intention is that a lot of people will benefit from this book – and will also get it for their family and friends.

Time to make things happen – and do please help me spread the word.
