  • I've been using YNAB for a few months, and absolutely love it.  Where other financial software is focused on what you've spent, YNAB is all about taking control of your money and planning what you are going to spend, now and into the future.

    The other amazing thing about YNAB is that they license the software to the household; so, everyone in the house (parents, children, etc...) can each have a copy of the software running on their own computer.  They also have free online courses, a great selection of howto's, and a forum full of helpful information and people.

    So $15 USD for financial/budgeting software for the entire family on Steam is really amazing!

  • I've decided to enroll back in school and take a Holistic Nutritionist course with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition.  I've been dabbling for over a decade in the nutrition realm which progressed from eat for your blood type, to food combining, to Paleo / whole foods.  I've finally clued into the fact that I am pretty passionate about it, and plan for a career change soon after I've graduated.

    I'll take the course part-time through their Distance Education option, as they do not yet have a school in Winnipeg.  I fully intend to take both Advanced Certification options, which ultimately leads to the Diploma.

    Healthy Living is going to be much more than "just a hobby" in the near future!

  • An amazing offer from YNAB, for College students around the world!

  • Two weeks later, and I've decided to switch where I pursue my education; enrolling in the Wholistic Nutrition course through Living Energy.  I decided to take Radka's course for many reasons, but the top reasons are:

    • When I called to talk about the course, she took her time to talk to me.  Our conversation was very easy-flowing (like two friends), and I truly felt like she will continue to be a mentor long after the course.
    • Her own practice (beyond the school) involves the whole person... body, mind, and soul; and that is what I see in my future.
    • Her's is a "suggested" three year program with the first year focusing on Anatomy, Physiology, and Chemistry... the basics.  Many of the other courses I was looking at were trying to wedge these topics into their two year program, which made me wonder what they were "leaving out" to meet that timeline.
    • I also didn't like how some of the other courses out there seem to be slanted towards vegetarianism; a bias my experiences don't share.

    Most of my textbooks will be arriving from amazon the week of Sept. 8th, and the initial course modules should be in my possession one to two weeks after that.  Exciting!

  • This blog post came to me from YNAB through their twitter channel, and I simply had to share it!  A must read to make sure that your thinking is in line with your goals.

  • Experience the power of a bookbook!

  • I've owned my Xerox Phaser 6180N for a few years now, and obviously I am not a huge ink consumer since I have only ever had the factory cartridges that came with the unit until my black started running out over the past week.  In fact, I still have 80% toner in one of the colour cartridges, and 60% in the other two.  But I found it hard to convince myself to buy official Xerox replacement ink when the cost of it was so close to the original purchase price of the printer... ummm, no thanks.  I'd rather buy a new printer at those prices.

    So I started looking online for alternatives and eventually found TonerOnline.ca.  What I appreciated the most was their no hassle warranty and the excellent conversation I had over the phone... looking to get more comfortable with purchasing "generic".  Obviously they said everything right as I decided to place my order for an entire set of colours, not just the black I really needed.  They happened to have a little sale on, and I do like to capitalize on sales... especially at these prices!

    Here's a quick bulleted list of Lauren's post over at Empowered Substances:

    1. Slow down on the nuts and seeds
    2. Don’t eat lean protein
    3. Stop drowning your body in water
    4. Don’t cook in chemicals
    5. Eat Enough Carbs

    Thank You for sharing Lauren; an excellent read!

    Update! I've also found some additional posts that support and expand these ideas on Sébastien's informative PaleoLeap.com website:

    I woke up Monday morning to a dead battery in my car.  In hindsight, I realize it had slowly been dying over the past couple weeks... the "turning radio off to conserve battery" every time I shut off the car was saying it loud and clear.

    Luckily my local dealer validated that the battery was faulty and replaced it with a new one the other day... but my Drone didn't fully recover.  I wasn't getting all notifications any more, nor the GPS location updates.

    The dealer was stumped, so I opened a support ticket today with Drone, explained what happened, and they reset something from their end (I think it was the module in my car) which put everything back into working order.

    But I think my support rep has a concern about my install as he stated that...

    If this problem happens again, I would suggest visiting the dealer so they can confirm what port the DroneMobile device is plugged into.

    An important nugget to keep track of moving forward me thinks!

  • An article appeared in The Indian Practitioner in September 2010 (volume 63, number 9, pages 567-574) that details the results of three clinical studies performed with malaria patients and silver, including a 100% cure rate in an average of five days.

    I know I was skeptical in the beginning by these claims, but after reading/watching the balance of the information that I have linked to in my Structured Silver section... I definitely started opening up to the possibilities.

  • I was recently introduced to Structured Silver by my instructor, through the gentle suggestion of a shared URL to Dr. Pedersen's web-site.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the thoroughness of Dr. Pedersen's video explanations, so I'd rather you watched them instead of me engaging in the injustice of trying to paraphrase what I learned.

    This collection of short videos is an excellent introduction to Structured Silver, what it is used for (past and present), and discussions about its safety... and even introduces a big claim of effectiveness against MRSA.

  • Being a believer in probiotics, my first concern was that if Structured Silver is so effective against "bad" bacteria and yeast... what about the healthy flora that I am trying to maintain?

    This collection of short videos dives deeper into Structured Silver, how it works, why it can distinguish between pathogenic bacteria/yeast and not our healthy flora... and why our healthy cells are protected.

  • An online reference to some of the known applications of Structured Silver.

    Considering my wife's previous experience with infections/pancytopenia and a new suspicion about endometriosis... coupled with my own desire to ensure my healthy flora is well established (no bad competition), looking forward to receiving some congestion (mucous retention cysts) relief, and treating blood blisters (not specifically on the list)... we'll definitely be testing the effectiveness of Structured Silver in our home.
