DeMelo's Da News

 Happy Canada Day

Canada Day!

Al and I sure hope you all enjoyed Canada Day this year.

It has been a hot and dry July here in Kamloops. We sure hope you have been comfortable.

Family Time

Al and I headed out to Prince George to see his family this month. Sadly, both his father and sister are suffering from cancer. They are doing well and have high spirits.

This has me wondering how many people think there is no cure. I have read countless accounts of people who have cured themselves. Some famous, some not. One of my favorite authors, who changed my life is Louise Hay.

Louise saw her cancer diagnosis as a chance to prove to herself that what she was teaching actually worked. She started by changing her thinking about the problem, shifting it to "it can be done and by going within". She changed her diet, practicing the art of forgiveness, and by cleansing the body of toxins through reflexology.  Healing for Louise involved the holistic process of working with the body, the mind and the emotions. Basically, the whole body.

We have also known a lot of people who have cured themselves of cancer just by changing a few things in their lifestyle. We are hopeful for our loved ones.

Happy Anniversary Baby

Square Foot Garden

We celebrated our wedding anniversary this month.

In order to do it in style, we headed for a fabulous vacation in Maui. We did not travel alone as members of our family were with us to help us celebrate. We went fishing, snorkeling for the first time, saw the aquarium, and had a lovely luau with dancers. This sure was the highlight for the month!


The Proper Care and Feeding

Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands

I am nearly done reading Dr. Laura Schlessinger's book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands". Dr. Laura teaches women how to ensure themselves happiness and satisfaction from their marriage. She points out, when you treat people the way you want to be treated and focus on the things you love about your partner; not what frustrates or irritates you, then miracles begin to happen and you both get your needs met. Which results in both of you becomming happy and satisfied in life. Remember, what you focus on you will get more of!! I have enjoyed the implementing the pointers in the book.

Raw Food

Teresa Holoman

Teresa Holoman was at our BANG (Business Accelerated Network Group) this month. Teresa has been a big inspiration to many people, teaching her friends and family about the Raw Food lifestyle. We met her when we went to Sanoviv last year. For our BANG meeting, she made a delicious zucchini spaghetti meal with a delicious sun dried tomato sauce. And then, the desert was to die for!.

Al and I have been working diligently to incorporate better eating practices and I am so happy to be able to learn from the best.


Bankers Code

Bankers CodeWe have learned so much about real estate from George Anton who is with Noteworthy. By reading Bankers Code, we learned another way to invest... why not be the banker?

I found the information in the book useful. By studying this book, you can learn the secrets of banking which will help you with the following:

  • Having great cash flow
  • Use OPM(other peoples money)
  • Use OPE(other peoples experience)
  • Use OPT(other peoples time)
  • No mortgage qualifying
  • No credit required
  • No need for good financials
  • Investors bring the deals

The result is even better... you will have more time to help more people and do what you love to do.

Dr. Mercola

Dr. MercolaIn my many journeys along the internet highway, I came across Dr. Mercola. He has many interesting articles on the most current natural health information and resources out there. He exposes corporate, government and mass-media hype that diverts you from knowing what is truly best for your health-- and often to a path that leads you to an early grave.

In November, 2009 he was named the top Ultimate Wellness Game Changer by the Huffington Post, an honor that celebrates "100 Innovators, Visionaries, and Leaders" in ten categories who are harnessing the power of the new media to reshape their fields of expertise and change the world.

So until next month!!! Many blessings your way, Al & Shelley
