If you are similar to me, and you no longer go off to work everyday,
you cannot wait to turn your computer on in the morning
to check out what's come in overnight,
as there is always a time lag between different countries,
and so, with this in mind, I am going to leave some of my
email Inbox content from time to time,
which can vary from really funny stuff,
all the way through to the serious items.
Naturally, I won't be inserting any private information
about the senders and their addresses etc,
I'll simply be posting what may be interesting or funny.
Please feel free to reply, comment and/or add your
content also, just remember to delete any
private details that are not to be included here - Hoot-hoot!
News just in....lol!
Subject: Facts n' Figures
Well, I cannot recall seeing any of the items below,
mainly I think because I live in Australia,
however they may have been placed in
the papers or magazines at a time when
I wasn't reading them.
aaaaah....the old days!
(you'll never see these again!)
That is an interesting thought Kooner,
they will probably be even more bemused and/or disgusted
than we are now.
You've got me thinking again,now, just what life might really be like
in those times to come, I wonder how much rain forest, animal life,
sea creatures and beaches will have survived then.
Will there still be massive starvation in the poorer countries.
Now here's one that is for all those female folk out there
that are caught up in the ups & downs of sustaining
a meaningful relationship - (This is a vague memory for me now,)
What if you didn't have to DO anything to "get" and "keep" the man who could make you happy forever?
What if all the "love strategies" you've tried before are just helping you feel more and more "smitten" with a man, and are getting you less and less of the love you want?
What if the answer is in NOT doing things? Not trying. Not reaching out. Not "loving" in the way you've been taught - like all of us women - to think loving feels and looks like?
I want to help you "unglue" yourself from what doesn't WORK with men, and to "unstick" you from your emotional bonds to a man who isn't "doing the job of love" for you. So, I came up with this image on a group coaching call...
Quick Quiz: Are You Like Flypaper?
Ask yourself these questions to find out if you're stuck in a "flypaper" pattern:
Snap Out Of Your Relationship Funk Fast
If you're feeling emotionally "stuck on" a man who isn't returning your love properly or treating you well...
and you just don't understand why love isn't happening for you when you FEEL so MUCH for him...
I know exactly how you feel.
It's the way I felt almost ALL of my life until several years into my marriage!
If you don't already have my Modern Siren online video program, you'll want to take a look right here (just the page on the other side of the link below has SO much help for you about "The 3 Wrong Roads To Love"):
When you start feeling like a "Siren" - and start just being a "Siren" - things change, fast.
If this feels like you - just caring too much what happens with any one man - try this new Tool:
1. Pave Over Your Flypaper
Pave it over with rose petals, and fairy dust, and gold dust, and soft sand from exotic beaches. Make it soft.
Make it so a man's footprints can be felt, and yet he can fly away and the breeze will blow more gold and fairy dust and soft sand to leave a fresh place for another man - or 100 men! - to leave more footprints...
And... perhaps stay awhile. Or forever.
2. Leave it up to him
Let him choose: Stay or go.
I know this feels totally impossible when we're clinging to a thread of a relationship. When we want things to work out, when we want things to go the way we want them to go. When we've waited so long for love, and finally a man has shown up who told us he loved us. Perhaps he even promised us love.
Yet, if you can remember this, you'll feel SO much better and be SO much more attractive to ANY man:
The difference between what a man says and what he does are the difference between a lifelong love partnership, and a fling.
It doesn't matter if the fling lasts days, weeks, months or even years (and, yes - many men are totally capable of allowing friendly "flings" to endure for years...) if it isn't a lifelong love partnership, with all the commitment bells and whistles you desire in order to relax and feel happy, then it's still a "fling."
If you're not watching what he does, you can accidentally use my Rori Raye Tools to keep a fling going for such a long time that you may get lulled into thinking it's going to be forever. (Yes - the Tools are THAT powerful.)
Instead, use my Tools to bring so MANY men close to you that you NEVER feel at any one man's mercy.
Just because you love him and are invested in him doesn't mean he has a claim on you UNTIL he actually claims you.
So let HIM make the decisions about where the relationship is going. And YOU make the decisions about whether what he wants is what YOU want.
This is where YOU get to stay or go, too. This is THE most powerful place you can come from inside yourself - the most powerful message you can deliver to a man: That you will not be trying to convince him to be with you forever.
That, instead, you'll trust him to make his own decisions based on how he feels and what he wants. And then you'll see if that's enough for you. This mental attitude can make you feel incredibly powerful and peaceful - both at the same time. Now...
3. Put imaginary plants around your mental and emotional self
Plants that will give you shade for your thoughts and feelings. Plants that will nurture and feed you... And most of all - plants that will invite a man to sit in the shade with you and share your bounty.
4. Don't ask him to "stick"
Don't be afraid of him going. The most attractive woman in the world is one who's not holding on, acting like glue. The prize here is YOU - not him!
Remember - if you're flypaper, you're stuck to a man, too! That means you're stuck with the ones who aren't filling up your needs and your heart!
And, in case you want to hang onto your flypaper and put it in a drawer and take it out for "special occasions" and "special men" - ask yourself this:
When a "good" man finds you - a man who's determined to make it his life's mission to make you ecstatically happy - you don't NEED flypaper! He stays and sticks because he WANTS to. Because he wants YOU.
Try this in your imagination, and see how it works magically in the real world, with a real man - no matter HOW you're feeling right now: Change your flypaper to lovely, sweet, feeling-filled you - the way you know you are deep inside yourself when you're happy and don't want or need anything - and change your life.
Do it one minute at a time. One tiny second, in fact, at a time. Practice it everywhere, and see how much calmer, sexier, simpler, and more relaxed you feel.
To get even more Tools like this one, and watch me guiding you through them to be a real, true INVITATION to a man - so he ALWAYS wants to "stick" to you like glue without you doing anything to make it happen - check out my Modern Siren program right here:
Like all my programs, "Siren" is guaranteed to work for you. There's absolutely no risk for you, and everything to get. When you follow the link, you'll see how Modern Siren works magically for so many hundreds of women.
I look forward to welcoming you to "Siren Island" - where no flypaper is needed.

this arrival in my Inbox this day...
Bottlenose dolphins have been observed to use distinctive “signature whistles” towards each other, says new research published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. That is, dolphins actually call one another by name, a behavior previously thought to only occur in humans.
Scientists have known that dolphins emit unique whistles that identify them to other dolphins. These can be heard up to 12.4 miles away, depending on the depth of the water and whistle frequency.
Stephanie King, a research fellow at University of St. Andrews, observed that the bottlenose dolphins actually copy the signature whistle of other dolphins when separated from them. This finding, she says in Discovery News, “supports our belief that dolphins copy another animal’s signature whistle when they want to reunite with that specific individual.”
King and her colleagues observed the copying of signature whistles both in wild dolphins around Sarasota Bay in Florida from 1984 to 2009 and in four adult male captive dolphins who live at Florida’s The Sea Aquarium. The keepers had given the latter four the names Calvin, Khyber, Malabar and Ranier but the dolphins were seen to have their own names for each other.
Notably, researchers found that the dolphins used the names for those they are close to, such as a mother to her calf or male dolphin “buddies” to each other. The signature whistles seem to be used to maintain social bonds — just as human language is used — and were not observed in aggressive contexts such as the “matching” of songs that songbirds use to “compete” with other.
Do Dolphins Have a “Language”?
Scientists have been hesitant to use the “l-word” — language — to refer to the sounds that animals other than humans make, says Discovery News. Clearly, the bottlenose dolphins studied by King have “a very complex and sophisticated communication system.”
Dolphins’ sounds include “high frequency echolocation or clicks; and pulse sounds, like noisy, pulsed squawks,” says Lori Marino, an evolutionary neurobiologist at Emory University who has long studied cetaceans, to Forbes. Her analysis of dolphins’ sounds reveals that these do have “higher-order internal structure or organizational complexity” that is analogous to the grammar and syntax of human language. Marino also notes other aspects of dolphins’ intelligence: they process information and make decisions quickly; they have a ”fluidity” of movement in a group that suggests a highly developed “level of social cohesion” and sense of self; and they show altruism towards other dolphins.
These findings, along with the newfound realization that dolphins have names for each other, offer further evidence for why, as some scientists argue, they should be considered “non-human persons,” in the spirit of the Declaration of Rights for Cetaceans, drafted by a group in Helsinski, Finland.
It also makes one wonder, what do many captive dolphins think about having names like “Flipper” given to them — what if we called them by their names instead and attempted to learn their forms of communication?
