Freebies, Freebies! eBOOKS

My meandering research into very important things took me to this most wonderful list of FREE eBooks. The classic Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is among 'em. Since that's one I've been itching to get hold of free, it not being in my budget, I am happy to have found it, and most happy to share with you the page that has a free download link to it, as well as to many other free eBooks.

The list is provided on the site Heal South Africa: 'A project dedicated to uniting and empowering the people of South Africa, with the goal of peace, happiness and health for all.'  Bless them.

Heal South Africa's list of free eBooks is here:

I'm Insane and Mike is Magic

published originally Dec 8

I'm insane but... a stranger posted to my latest blog. Asking what I think about the movie 'Magic Mike'. Since I haven't seen it, I did a quick look at reviews. Two of my top reviewer sites were natural hits 1 and 2 in Google (The Guardian and Rotten Tomatoes). The third hit caught my fancy because of the similarity of the site's name to this blog: The Buzz. (This is the CBCNews's Arts & Entertainment film review column.)
The Guardian rather disses it but The Buzz and Rotten Tomatoes give it 4 out of 5: the Buzz's rating seems to be the writer/reviewer's opinion but Rotten Tomatoes' rating is based on 186 watcher reviews. You can watch it for $4.99 on YouTube; it isn't available on Netflix. On YouTube you have 30 days to start watching it, and once started, 48 hours of viewing time.

Here are the links:

My Friend Nancy 1

This post is titled '1' because I'm sure I will be speaking further of this woman, Nancy. For starters, here's her sense of humor on Facebook and we were both raised Catholic, God save her soul.

A sexy, steamy movie
that's only 1 hr 32 min. long...

I think this movie should win critical awards, I do. Nevermind that, but how incredibly SEXY it is! O-M-sweet-G. It's called 'Lie With Me'. I was looking for 'Lie To Me' on Netflix which is no longer #!$%! available there, and this was the next result.

Holy moly. Sexy.

The description for the movie on Netflix is crap. But the review voted 'most helpful' - was. Here it is (too bad Netflix reviews are anonymous - I like this dude's style):

It's rated R.

The first comment on this piece (when it was a page instead of a post, like now) was:

Here's my current Winsome Wisdom piece.

I clicked on a Google ad for 'Anthony Robbins free 5 hours video coaching'. To the right on the landing page, I put in my email address, clicked Get Instant Access and was taken to the first 75-minute video.

It's Robbins interacting with a woman in one of his seminars. Wow, is what I've got to say.

Her tragedy and misery gives me that kicked-in-the-stomach feeling. And in the face of it, so penetrating and illusion-dispelling is Anthony Robbins. There's a man whose powers of enlightenment and transformation have honed with time.

The mind-blowing part comes in the final 10 minutes, with a video switch to one year later. Now the woman and her husband are sitting across from Robbins, only these three in the room. The changes in her life are truly amazing, yet so naturally connected to the breakthroughs we saw her have a year ago. She looks 15 years younger, at least 10. Her utterly transformed experience of life is an extension of her visible healing a year earlier at Robbin's hands.

The woman has humility, love, and a fighting spirit (and not much else that she could see, back then). And he reaches out to heal every twisted thing interfering with her expression and experience of her magnificent self.

She is given a road back to herself and a life she can embrace. She takes it. Running.

Let me know what you think.


WINSOME WISDOM is hereby a series I'm starting in the middle. I'll post engaging stuff I find going forward, and tidbits from my extensive records that amazed me in the past.
