And The Good News About Sex Is…

When Your Sex Life Hits A Setback

or The Irony Of ‘Good News’ Which Applies To Very Few Of Us

I’ve just found some startling facts about sex. Did you know that you can have a satisfying sex life right into your 80s?

No, neither did I… although I guess Cary Grant and (I believe…) Charlie Chaplin would have been only too happy to confirm this…

And to have a long and satisfying sex life, all you have to do is remain remarkably fit just like this 😉 …

Now, the problem as I see it is, how many octegenarians are actually remarkably fit?

Kinda puts a damper on that hope for the future doesn’t it? Especially when the article goes on to show that other studies have found that physical frailty may well be a contributor to the development of early Alzheimer’s disease.

So you might still be able to continue to have a sex life, but would you remember it?

And if that sounds cruel, well imagine what it must feel like for the poor Alzheimer’s victim.

But all is not lost, evidently, because if you take up a course of physical exercise you can help ward off some of the effects of old age. So, I guess that with a healthy diet the author mentions and all that pounding the streets to keep healthy, as the author recommends, you might just be able to prevent the onset of frailty.

And then you will really be able to enjoy that long sex life.

When even an expert gets taken for a ride

In the online marketing world you need to be smart to keep ahead of the field. There are so many people out there ready to take you for a ride (and take all your money if you let them). But the smart marketer is ahead of the game. He knows how things work. He knows all the scams. In fact, he can probably tell you a few himself.

The smart marketer will never get caught out.

Unless he gets lazy…

Nicky Cakes is (so he says) a Reformed Black Hat Internet Marketer. His blog is full of interesting tips for keeping your edge in the cut throat online world.

Nicky is one smart cookie and people generally like and respect him. After all, the guy knows what he’s talking about in the world of affiliate sales. So lots of people visit his blog.

So it’s a good place for Nicky to collect a little side money in advertising revenue. He has six banner advertising spaces on his blog, for which interested marketers pay him a small amount per month. The idea is that anyone clicking on those adverts goes to the banner owners site.

Unless of course you want to take advantage of the fact that Nicky, being a busy guy, doesn’t (or hadn’t) check out where those links go to. After all, why would anyone want to advertise a service on a marketing blog, unless it was to do with marketing…?

Quite so. But there is a short cut which Nicky, smart as he is, hadn’t thought about.

Why not place your own affilate link under the advert and take the person clicking that link straight to the sign up page, rather than to your website first?

So for weeks, Nicky Cakes was giving very cheap advertising space on a respected, highish profile blog to a guy who was making money at his expense. People were clicking on the ads and signing up because they thought they were doing Nicky a favour by signing up via his link.

Seems Nicky has now changed his mind about the procedure he goes through when accepting those ads.

Still, there’s probably a few bloggers out there who haven’t…

Just A Couple Of Ironic Blonde Jokes

A Joke emailed to me about:


Last year, I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive double-pane energy-efficient kind.

Yesterday, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the windows had been installed a whole year ago, and that I hadn’t paid for them yet.

Hellloooo? Now just because I’m blonde, doesn’t mean that I am automatically stupid. So I told him just exactly what his fast-talking sales guy had told ME last year, namely, that in just ONE YEAR, these windows would pay for themselves!

“Helllooooo” ? (I told him.) “It’s been a year”!

There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up.

He hasn’t called back, probably too embarrassed about forgetting the guarantee they made me.

Bet he won’t underestimate a blonde again!
