Drive Safely – Two Top Tips For Driving In The Rain

I don’t know about you but I hate driving at night, in the fog, or in the pouring rain.  Come to think about it, I don’t really like driving at all.

Maybe I should get a chauffeur?

Anyway, I was sent these pieces of information about driving in the rain the other day and whilst I have to admit at this point in time, I haven’t actually tried either, I thought I’d better share, just in case.

They were sent to me in an e-mail from a person I know, like and trust, so it’s up to you whether you take note or not, and I’ll post them, just as I received them .rain

 Tip 1


We are not sure why it is so effective; just try this method when it rains heavily.  This method was told by a Police friend who had experienced and confirmed it.

It is useful…even driving at night.

Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is still bad.

In the event you face such a situation, just put on your SUNGLASSES (any model will do), and miracles – all of a sudden, your visibility in front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.

Make sure you always have a pair of SUNGLASSES in your car.

You are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might save your friend’s life by giving him this idea.

Try it yourself and share it with your friends!

Amazingly, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling.

You can see where the rain bounces off the road.

It works to eliminate the “blindness” from passing cars, or the “kickup” if you are following a car in the rain.

Tip 2


driving in the rainAnother good tip: A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago. It was raining, though not excessively when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air.

She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!

When she explained to the Police Officer what had happened, he told her something that every driver should know – NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON.

She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain, but the Police Officer told her that if the cruise control is on, your car will begin to hydro-plane when the tyres lose contact with the road, and your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an aeroplane.

She told the Officer that was exactly what had occurred.

The Officer said this warning should be listed, on the driver’s seat sun-visor – NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE ROAD IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning.

We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and drive a safe speed – but we don’t tell them to use the cruise control only when the road is dry.

The only person the accident victim found who knew this, (besides the Officer), was a man who’d had a similar accident, totalled his car and sustained severe injuries.

NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to set the cruise control when the windshield wipers are on.

As, I said, I haven’t tried these and don’t know if they’re true but they might be worth investigating.  They both sound sensible and feasible to me, so if you agree, please pass this message on.

You never know, you might just be saving a life!


Pure Leverage – Why Does Joel Therien Keep Giving Away Expensive Luxury Shiny Red Cars?

BMWWhy does Joel Therien keep giving away expensive red cars?

When I first met him  in 2010, he was giving away his shiny red BMW.

Well, I don’t suppose he was actually giving it away, because prior to the presentation there had been a contest and the person to bring in the most new members to GVO won the car.

In case you don’t know, that’s the amazing hosting company he set up in 2000 (previously known as Kiosk)and which he relaunched under a new name.

(If you want to know more you can read my book – The GVO Story or you can listen to my interview with him where we do actually discuss his car).

Tissa_and_JeanAnyway, the lucky winner was Tissa Godivitane, a lovely tall guy who had difficulty even getting into the car, yet alone driving it.

However, he clearly deserved the prize and was a popular choice, because as I say, he’s a really nice chap.

Fast forward, almost three years and Joel is now giving away the car he’d bought to replace his beloved BMW and I hear his children aren’t too impressed.

You see it’s a shiny red….

Ferrari F430 Spider!

Why is he doing this?

NO – it’s NOT because the colour is fading (red is notorious for it on cars), but he’s just launched Pure Leverage, and is running another contest to get new members.

Mind you, I personally don’t think he needs to run a contest to get members because Pure Leverage is an incredibly easy to use marketing system which ANYONE and EVERYONE who wants to do effective marketing online needs.

You see there’s nothing else that can compare to it in terms of reliability and cost.

For just $24.95 you can get …

  • 100 seat personal conference suite
  • an authority blog
  • 100 auto responder campaigns
  • video e-mail service

The auto responder service alone would cost you far more than that elsewhere because Pure Leverage allows you to have 10,000 leads before it charges you extra, and you certainly can’t get a personal 100 seat conference suite where you can hold video, audio and text chats, stream videos and powerpoints, share your screen, use a white board, upload and download files and save the sessions for anywhere close to that price.

Not bad, eh?

You can see why I say it’s a marketing system ANYONE and EVERYONE needs!

Joel doesn’t stop there though.

He’s not just a hosting provider, but an internet and network marketer so the insight he has into the online industry is pretty extensive.  His list of trusted expert contacts is phenomenal.

He KNOWS what people WANT and NEED, so to cater to EVERYONE he has made Pure Leverage a business opportunity for those people who want it.

You can, if you wish, become a reseller, for an additional $19.97 per month, OR $199.70 if you care to make an annual payment and save yourself nearly $40.

That means IF you introduce someone to Pure Leverage you can get 100% commission on your direct referrals …

for LIFE!

It doesn’t even stop there though, because you get commission on your direct referrals’, direct referrals too …

…for LIFE

I know what you’re thinking – “It’s one of those Pyramid Schemes”, aren’t you?

Come on, you can admit it, but it’s a win-win situation for EVERYONE.

If you introduce Pure Leverage to someone and they INVEST in the product, they will SAVE a lot of MONEY on the tools and services, compared to what they would have to pay elsewhere, so obviously they’ll be HAPPY.

You’ll be happy too if you’re a reseller because you’ll earn commission from that referral for as long as he or she remains a customer of Pure Leverage.

Now, if that referral is so happy with Pure Leverage, he or she wants to also become a reseller, you’ll also benefit from any referrals he or she makes.  That means you’ll be even happier and will want to encourage them to earn lots and lots of money by making lots and lots of referrals which will make even more people really really happy.

You won’t mind that they could potentially earn much more than you because you’re here to make people happy..


So, now I’ve told you the reason Joel is giving away his bright red shiney Ferrari, you’ll understand why people are promoting this so madly and why someone is going to be really, really, really happy at the end of the competition.

Just hope it’s someone short like me this time (Ha! Ha!).

Of course, whoever it is, I don’t suppose Joel’s children will be too pleased, but I’m sure he’ll find an even more shiny, luxurious, expensive  car to replace it.

Not sure if it will be red this time though, but I’m guessing if you watch this space in about two to three years time, you might find out.

What do you think?

Internet Profits – What’s The Difference Between Having A Job And Being An Entrepreneur?

Diamond Wedding AnniversaryLast week my parents celebrated their  60th Wedding Anniversary and I wrote them this poem.

They’re an incredible couple.

They argue every day as a matter of course, and if they don’t, then there’s generally something wrong, like they’re ill.

Their arguements never amount to anything though, and they have this philosophy every day’s a good day as long as you live to see it.

They’ve been a real inspiration to my brother, two sisters and all our offspring, and we love them dearly.

  A match made in heaven are Eddie and Kath
60 years they have been man and wife
Worked hard as a team,
Through the good and the lean
And shared in life’s trouble and strife

They argue and shout and often fall out
But never end up in a fight
Just get things off their chest
Then give it a rest
Both still convinced each one’s right

Eddie and Kath just confirm, what all couples must learn
Marriages last if you love, trust and care
Though joined by a ring,
You can do your own thing
And still have great memories to share

On this day in their life, 60 years man and wife
Successfully they’ve passed the test
They’ve helped and inspired
Are much loved and admired
So Cheers, Good Luck, All the Best!


Like many couples of their age, they’ve been through some really tough times but still think they’ve seen the best of times.  Their generation believe life is only going to get worse, and they could be right, because we all take so much for granted.

In their day, very few people were rich and unlike today, people expected to work for everything they got.

Also, they expected, once they were in employment, they would remain in employment, unless something awful happened or they chose to move on to something else.

It’s not like that these days, is it?

Each day, the unemployment figure rises and very few people feel secure when they’re employed by someone else.  That’s why more and more of us are turning to the internet as a means of providing either a full time, or additional income.

It’s especially true for the middle aged and more mature individuals, who find re-employment more challenging.

When the demand exceeds the supply, employers can be very choosy about who they take on, and unfortunately it’s not always experience that counts.Internet Profits Report

However, starting your own business is not  always as easy as it seems though, and quite frankly a lot of people can’t do it.
