“You Can Actually Make A Choice” – Prof Danny Dorling

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Professor Danny Dorling said it plain and simple. There is freedom of choice when not in fear and frightened. Having a choice is a realistic value in every human being. However, there are many who don’t have that choice because of inability to save resources that they need.

What this means to you?

  • Self assessing your abilities to gain independence that will give you the choice you wanted in life

  • Make priorities about what makes sense in spending your earning and save, save, save some or most of your income. Your future will depend on that success and choice. Having adequate savings will provide you that choice to enjoy living life independently

  • Refrain from being ‘subservient sucker’ to capitalism or being an ‘economic slave’ – be yourself, practical, use commons sense, exercise independent thinking that will give you that ‘real choice’

Real Estate: Advantages of a “Live-in Ready Home” and the Amenities of Nature Plus Convenience …

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Strategist

Why should I look for quality home when buying a residence? For sure, the first consideration is the peace of mind and not much work to be done upon arrival of settling-in.  Of course, there is an argument of buying a newly built house in a new development or buying a well maintained home that already exist in a desirable neighborhood that is well equipped; within the beautiful environment, spectacular views, neighborhood, residents, natural and shopping amenities.

Personal preferences exist regardless of motivation. However, when one make a decision for a long term abode that is influenced with personal convenience and circumstances. Big consideration is location, location, location. These three words’ #realestate motto will come with a $Price Tag; oftentimes not accessible to everyone. There are opportunities for everyone regardless of likes and dislikes.

This home is one of its rarity, plus it provides you a preview of how well-maintained this home through the Pre-inspection Report that was made available through their Selling Agent in MLS Listing #1143965. Private viewing can be arranged through your Real Estate Broker.

Why Consider the Advantages? Because of serenity and balanced living  …

You are not only buying a house, you are buying a home where you can relax, enjoy your moments with all the amenities within and its surroundings. Accessibility to various metropolis, cultural immersions, public and private infrastructures.

When you like sunsets without going away from home, convenient living in this home offers you those phenomenal sunsets from Spring Season to Winter Season through picture windows in the house. Like the following photos; don’t you feel like experiencing all of these? According to the current home owners, each day has a new panorama to appreciate over cocktails, coffee or tea.

You can also create your own “from garden to table experience” by building your own organic vegetable or produce garden within your own backyard. The current owners of this ‘rarely available single level home’ have enjoyed their own organically sustained garden over the years with the following fruits and vegetables;

The new owner of this home will enjoy numerous bearing fruit berries, seasonal plants and flowers, plus the serene surroundings that are available day-in and day-out or one can enjoy the private sanctuary that will be waiting for them.


When you enjoy private living with natural amenities, having conversations with and entertaining friends, this place is made for your lifestyle.

Actively Looking for a New Home? One Tip that experienced home buyers share is to request a Pre-inspection Report through your professional representative and discuss its details so that you are educated on the advantages of owning a well maintained home or embracing lots of unwanted home projects in addition to your real estate purchase cost. My personal experience was understanding the Pre-inspection Report and made the best decision.

Squids Increased Dramatically in UK’s North Sea – An Impact of #ClimateChange

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“Climate Change is affecting fish habitation as well. Scientists in the United Kingdom observed that fish like squids that are usually found in the warmer waters have dramatically increased their presence in the north seas of UK. In the contrary, the fish that enjoy the colder water like cods are moving out. These reversed situations are impacts of #ClimateChange.”

Environment Editor Damian Carrington wrote; “Squid and anchovies are moving into warming waters in large numbers, a report finds, with the long-lost bluefin tuna also returning”. (source credit: theguardian)

Who Says Drinking Coffee Is Unhealthy “Do you drink coffee?”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“I like my two cups of coffee everyday before starting my day. Then another cup of coffee during afternoon snacks or after dinner. With that three cups a day, I am in alignment with the recently and newly published research at the Annals of Internal Medicine.  Where it said; 3 cups of drinking coffee daily is beneficial to the body.”

Advantages of drinking coffee:

Joe Tidy, a Sky News Correspondent wrote;  “Men who downed at least three cups of coffee a day were 18% less likely to die from any cause than non-coffee drinkers. Women drinking the same amount benefited less, but still experienced an 8% reduction in mortality over the period measured.” (credit source:

In the same article it says; “the researchers found that the group with the highest consumption of coffee had a lower risk for all-causes of death, compared to those who did not drink coffee.”

Research Conclusion:

“Coffee drinking was associated with reduced risk for death from various causes. This relationship did not vary by country”. (source credit: Annals of Internal Medicine)

#Plant-a-tree Do Not Deny #ClimateChange – Be A Part of #EarthDay #MarchforScience

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“Today is #EarthDay so we rolled up our sleeves early to participate in our #treeplantingchallenge every year. This is our way of supporting #marchforscience and recognizing #EarthDay.

Everyone who believes about #RealScience and #NotClimateChangeDeniers participated in the #MarchforScience across the United States today.

I have planted my tree this year 2017. Last week, my elderly neighbor asked me to help them plant a tree in their lot, and we agreed to do it today in recognition of #EarthDay. How about you? There are many ways to participate in this in your own environment. Talk to your neighbors and friends; do something together to help sustain our natural environment.

A Climate Scientist from Pennsylvania State University Mr. Michael Mann shared his insights:

“We didn’t choose to be in this battle, but it has come to the point where we have to fight because the stakes are too great” source: 

The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau issued the following statements for #EarthDay.

“Today, we join the global community to celebrate Earth Day – a time to connect with nature and reaffirm our commitment to build a cleaner, more sustainable world for our children.

“As Canadians, we have a responsibility to safeguard our planet and natural treasures. I am proud of the steps our Government has taken to protect the environment and promote clean growth. These steps include historic domestic and international agreements that will help us respond to pressing environmental challenges, grow the economy, and build a cleaner, healthier tomorrow.

“On Earth Day, we recognize Indigenous cultures that have long understood the intricate links that exist between land, water, air, and all living things. Ensuring that decisions today serve generations tomorrow requires an active effort from all of us.

“Canada looks forward to hosting World Environment Day on June 5 this year. Like Earth Day, it will be an occasion to celebrate our connections to our environment and to each other.

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I encourage all Canadians to take a moment today to go outside, find renewal in nature, and appreciate the environment that connects us all.” (source:

Happy Diwali 2014

Diwali is an important festival of the year and is celebrated among families of Hindus by performing traditional activities together in their homes. In India, the official holiday is called Deepavali.

Diwali is on the 15th day of the month Kartika (October/November) in the Hindu calendar. The 5 day festival begins on the 13th day in the dark half of Ashwin and ends on the 2nd day in the bright half of Kartika. As the calculation is primarily based on the moon, the day of Diwali Festival varies in the Gregorian Calendar between the 17th October and 15th November every year. (source:

Diwali, also known as Festival of Lights is celebrated around the world which began during the mid of this week (October 23, 2014). CNN described as the famous display of spectacular light decorations during the five-day event. (source:

Culture Note Regarding Diwali:

Traditionally, they believe that the Hindu goddess of good luck visits their homes that are brightly lit. Many homes are lighted with various shapes, forms and colors during this festival of lights.

In today’s international Diwali celebrations, it is focus on family and friends; the time to reflect about the past and looking forward to what the future brings; with the international challenges many aspires that people around the world live together in harmony; that the truth overcomes false pretenses and light overshadows the darkness.

Don’t Get Fooled, US IRS Warned! “Telephone Scammers”

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

IRS Warning_Phone Scam

The Internal Revenue Service, re-issued an Alert to everyone regarding telephone scammers that are pretending to be calling from the IRS. the  Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has received through its telephone hotline 90,000 complaints, to date,  approximately 1,100 victims who have lost an estimated $5 million from these scams.

“There are clear warning signs about these scams, which continue at high levels throughout the nation,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “Taxpayers should remember their first contact with the IRS will not be a call from out of the blue, but through official correspondence sent through the mail. A big red flag for these scams are angry, threatening calls from people who say they are from the IRS and urging immediate payment. This is not how we operate. People should hang up immediately and contact TIGTA or the IRS.”

Taxpayers must know that the IRS:

  • Never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone.
  • Never insists that taxpayers use a specific payment method to pay tax obligations
  • Never requests immediate payment over the telephone and will not take enforcement action immediately following a phone conversation. Taxpayers usually receive prior notification of IRS enforcement action involving IRS tax liens or levies. 

Characteristics of these scams include:

  • Scammers use fake names and IRS badge numbers. They generally use common names and surnames to identify themselves.
  • Scammers may be able to recite the last four digits of a victim’s Social Security number.
  • Scammers spoof the IRS toll-free number on caller ID to make it appear that it’s the IRS calling.
  • Scammers sometimes send bogus IRS emails to some victims to support their bogus calls.
  • Victims hear background noise of other calls being conducted to mimic a call site.
  • After threatening victims with jail time or driver’s license revocation, scammers hang up and others soon call back pretending to be from the local police or DMV, and the caller ID supports their claim.

IRS Reminder:

Taxpayers must be vigilant against phone and email scams that use the IRS as a lure. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by email to request personal or financial information. This includes any type of electronic communication, such as text messages and social media channels. The IRS also does not ask for PINs, passwords or similar confidential access information for credit card, bank or other financial accounts. Recipients should not open any attachments or click on any links contained in the message. Instead, forward the email to

Here You Go, “Jay’s WSM Quencher” – the Summer Cocktail

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS

When I meet my business colleagues and friends, who knew that I love and make my own cocktails. They asked me about the latest or they tell friends that I make cocktails, particularly on Friday evenings.  Yes, I love my cocktails to unwind and relax.

In the past couple of weeks, Summer started to be enduring with heat. My inquisitive mind began examining what summer fruits that can be used for excellent cocktails. Was at my local farmer’s market in James Street, saw a reasonably priced big watermelon at $3.00, and yes it is red!

I always experiment in terms of mixes of various liqueurs and spirits to achieve a decadent flavor and oomph! It’s not a great cocktail without a kick!  The result came out excellent after i have it tested by my cocktail friends. It is now a 2014 Summer Favorite!

Here you go  my friends, and cheers to: , @PattiRowlson, @Jakeswg, @soundslikepuget, @blghamexplorer@Bellinghomes and all. Enjoy! Let me know what you think.
