I just had to share this one with you.

We were at Jaylen’s (number 1 grandson) birthday party on Sunday.

When we fronted up with the figure 8 race track birthday cake his 2 year old eyes nearly popped out of his head but he did a great job of containing himself for an hour or so but it all became just too long to wait.

He did the right thing and asked everyone around him for cake but there was nobody listening closely enough. They were offering presents to him, he was brushing them off but still there was no CAKE!

So what’s a lad to do?

He’s been to a couple of these shindigs before, he knows the routine.

He sits himself down in front of the cake, sings Happy Birthday to himself and tucks in!

2 year olds. Gotta lov’em haven’t you?

Microsoft Patches 19 Bugs With 7 Bulletins -- All Critical more

Small firms warned of ’security apathy’
SMEs not taking security seriously enough. more

From Bernie: I’ve just read that if you have any but the most recent version of Quicktime installed on a PC which is JAVA enabled, then there is a hole in your security that evil people, no doubt somewhere in Chechnya, can drive a truck through. The cure is to download and install the latest version of Quicktime.

Microsoft to issue seven security patches
Three security bulletins affect Office, while two affect Windows. Exchange is affected by one bulletin as is Microsoft BizTalk business process management server and Capicom, a Microsoft ActiveX control. more

Turn Off Hidden Shares
With all the attention that spyware, phishing, e-mails, and corporate hackers get on any given day, we mustn’t forget that good ol’ Windows itself can be the source of a security hole. It turns out that Vista has a back door that could permit someone else to read any file on your hard drive, and the same problem exists in Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP. more

A Natural Way to Live Longer

By Al Sears, MD

Did you know that you can actually live longer by restricting calories? In numerous studies, cutting calories by 40 percent increased the lifespan of laboratory animals (ranging from mice to geese) by as much as 50 percent. And a 15-year study of monkeys found that a restricted-calorie diet lengthened their lives by 30 percent.

When you eat less, you get a number of anti-aging benefits:

Body temperature drops
Blood pressure lowers
Cholesterol levels drop
Cells divide at a slower rate
The rate of glycation drops
Free-radical activity drops
Oxidation activity drops

Cutting calories is not as hard as you think. You can, for example, substitute a protein shake for your regular morning meal. Protein powders that feature whey protein isolate are the best. You’ll have the sensation of being full without the metabolic stress on your body.

When you bulk up on protein, you throw “metabolic switches" in your body that lessen hunger and start burning fat. This is a genetic throwback to our caveman days when lots of protein meant “times are good." When your body isn’t worried about starvation, it burns off all its fat stores. (Why do you need stored body fat if you are likely to eat well again tomorrow?)

Conventional Cancer Treatment May Fuel the Spread of Cancer

By Jon Herring

If you have ever watched someone undergo conventional cancer treatment, particularly radiation and chemotherapy, you know how excruciating and debilitating it can be. It is truly a matter of “Let’s see if we can kill this cancer before we kill the patient."

And now another problem with these “therapies" has arisen. Researchers have long recognized that the repopulation and progression of tumors following radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and surgery is a known risk. A new study sheds some light on one reason why this may happen. Tests in mice that were infected with human breast cancer show that certain chemotherapy drugs and radiation raised levels of tumor cells in the blood and also raised levels of a signaling protein called "transforming growth factor-beta" (TGF-beta). In the experiment, this substance helped the breast cancer cells metastasize (spread) to the lungs.

In future health briefs, I will discuss the utter failure of the “war on cancer" and the ineffectiveness and risks associated with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. But for now, let’s focus on some of the steps that have been proven to reduce the risk of cancer in the first place:

Exercise consistently.
Avoid toxins and artificial ingredients, and eat a diet of whole, natural, organic foods.
Eat a low-glycemic diet by avoiding sweets and refined carbohydrates.
Maintain optimal vitamin D levels by enjoying time in the sun as often as possible. If you can’t do that, supplement with cod liver oil or a vitamin D3 supplement.

I read an interesting statement recently that it takes about 5,000 hours of proctice to become really good at something and 10,000 hours to be a real master at it. The examples given were of sports greats who had and continue to practice every day for years to be at the top of thier sport.

Some extracts from an article on Bruce Elkin’s book “ Emotional Mastery: Manage Your Moods and Create What Matters Most – With Whatever Life Gives You!"

"Old wisdom says the sooner we make our first 5000 mistakes, the sooner we will learn anything."

"New wisdom talks about “rapid prototyping"—fail fast, and often."

"Make many small, instructive mistakes. Try, try again. That is how you learn quickly, in art, business, and life. It is also the fast track to success."

I can see the sense in that recommendation when you are researching something new, but how much faster would you learn if you did only the proven, successful actions as given by a master practioner or coach?

One ad read recently for training in copywrighting suggested you could cut 35% off the learning curve.

The world’s oldest surviving recipe is a formula for making beer. It was discovered outside Baghdad in 1850 on a 3,800-year-old Sumerian clay tablet. Two other tablets contain what are believed to be drinking songs. (Source: That’s a Fact Jack! A New Collection of Utterly Useless Information by Harry Bright)

Although “i.e." and “e.g." are often used interchangeably, they shouldn’t be. Use “i.e.," from the Latin id est ("that is to say"), to explain something you just said. Use “e.g.," from the Latin exempli gratia, when you mean “for example." (Source: Dictionary.com)
