DeMelo's Da News

Canada Day!!

We Love the Dog Days of Summer!

Yes, it has been hot! (HOT HOT HOT) actually. We do love to receive the beautiful hot weather we are having, especially after a wet July!

Vegas with Al's Parents

Al and I decided it was about time that his parents went on a trip. It has been eleven years since they went anywhere on a vacation. For some reason they haven't traveled much. So we invited them to join us in Las Vegas!

They were a little apprehensive at first, worrying about the travel, costs, etc. But after a bit of coaxing we were all on our way!All of Us!

This group shot is of Al's Dad & Mom, Myself and Al and was taken at Lake Mead, one of the tourist spots we visited. It was very beautiful, but also... scorching HOT HOT HOT... and sadly, no shade!! And of course, they had a blast at nearly ALL the casinos (grin), we set them up with some seed money, and they managed to entertain themselves for hours at the one-armed bandits. We practically had to drag them away from the slots. Al's ParentsThey just didn't want to cash out! We had such a great time showing them things they have not seen, not to mention the fun of just getting to spend quality time with them! Here's his parents being serenaded in the Venetian Hotel. They rode the canals and really had a fabulous time!

CEO Space

While we were in Vegas, we did attend CEO Space! We had a few appointments with mentors who are advising us on what our next move with the business is, and to clarify what to focus on. We were especially happy to be able to get to see Thomas and others who we have become good friends with.

Power Vs: Force

Think!I was reading a book called Power vs: Force by Dr David Hawkins. He is a world renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher, and pioneer in the fields of consciousness research and spirituality. What he really made clear to me is about the practice of muscle testing. Apparently we can ask questions about any subjects (as long as it is not the future), for example is a food good for me, etc. and our body will tell us if it is positive or negative for us. I found the book well worth reading, as it took the mystery of muscle testing, and made it more understandable to me.

There is obviously a lot of food for thought here. Meanwhile, the technique of using energy testing is simple to apply and experiment with for a very practical application.

Try it. You may be astounded by the results!

Butterfly Update!

Take a look at this! Here is our butterfly house. It is beautiful!

This is our second round of butterflies.


The beautiful pupas are attached and hung on a piece of cork so they can go through their stages.

Here are our guests enjoying the beautiful meal of watermelons. They just sit on top and feed on the sugars in the fruit.





Back in the Game

No, we have not forgotten about our real estate endeavors. We have been very occupied with getting our inventory management system implemented at the shop. Now that that is in place, Al and I are re-focusing ourselves toward the goal of creating passive income through real estate.

As a result of this effort, we are excited to announce that we are giving a presentation at our local Kamloops Real Estate Club at the end of August. As you may recall, we have been spending a lot of time learning how to do due diligence in determining whether or not to buy a property. We will be discussing green light indicators that will help you assess if a property has good potential to be profitable.

Next month will share with you how our first presentation went. We are really looking forward to it.

Lots of love, abundance and joy your way!
