Dear Friends,

Thank you, the readers and followers of this blog. My special recognition goes to the readers who  commented and the wealth of information shared with us. I like to believe that in a small way, together, we made a positive contribution but small steps, together amount to significantly bettering our world. At least, we try!!! 

We are celebrating today over 10,094 views total,  and as many as 533 views a day on

Nothing would have been possible without everyone’s active contribution and our goal to help others. 

Many of you have been with me from the beginning.

At the end of 2010 I broke my  right ankle and became literally my own slave in a place where I had moved a week prior to the accident.

What to do? “Blog!” suggested somebody, ” you write well.”

“Blog? What does that mean? Blog about what? Where? How do you do THAT?” I took a picture of my injured ankle… hmm and who cared!!!

We are now in October of 2013 and 10,094 views later, many followers and  well over 100 meaningful comments.

I am saying THANK YOU to  the followers and readers  of my blog and also to WORD PRESS who guided me at every step and turned someone who didn’t know the definition of blogging, into an avid blogger.  My gratitude goes to my colleague bloggers who voted this blog “MOST VERSATILE!”  Such is LIFE, and we attempt to keep up with it.

Many of you know that this blog began at the end of 2010. It started as a memoir, which at the end of 2011 was published in paper, than e-pub and Kindle formats under the title, The Gypsy Saw Two Lives.” 

After the book was published, my mission was accomplished, or so I thought. Actually, my passion for writing has never been accomplished, but I was thinking of the “mysterious process of blogging.” 

After the book was published,  every time I checked the blog, I noticed that it still had a significant number of visitors.

People were still reading it, as if expecting more.

Oh! Let’s face it,  the joy overwhelmed me!!!

Someone,  not my immediate family or friends, was still reading what I wrote!!! For any writer, or most writers,  isn’t this a dream come true?

The present post is a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who stood by me and who contributed to this blog not only by reading and sharing it  with their friends and on their networking pages, but by making valuable comments.

My promise is to do my best and together with you, to continue taking small steps, which I trust will continue our journey to improve our world.

Dear friends,


Thank you for continuing  to post regarding  the facial creams  FREE:) combo which  started over a month ago and the comments literally poured in with valuable information.

For the readers who  read one comment or one post, I’d suggest to please read ALL of them, as you will find your answers in what has already been posted or commented upon.  It seems a scheme of greater proportions, please read Tipper’s comment which gives a wider view of this problem.

Meanwhile, I came across a new possible scheme and I shared it in a recent post about Funeral Expenses paid by Medicare and Social Security. Very tempting… hmm to “qualify for $15,000” 🙂

There is no more information that I have about the facial creams,, but please read what so many shared already. You ight find directions on what to do.. Your bank, if it is a good bank will help you, as Bank of America helped me.Thank you.

.Good luck and hopefully our proactive attitude will make a difference.

Would “Receive Your FREE Social Security & Medicare Information Brochure, Written in LARGE Print tempt you to open this yellow envelope?

As I concluded the “Free Combo” posts “bundle,” which it seemed saved  money to many, I thought, this was IT, no more exposing schemes!!!  I will find a positive topic to write about. So many good things are happening in our world and strangely, the human nature is more interested in talking about the negative topics, not mentioning the many good deeds.

I even had a few topics in mind, to research at a deeper level and post, and  smile:)

In that positive mood, I picked up my mail this morning. A yellow envelope stuck out  in the crowd of what was mostly junk mail and bills, none of which I was eager to open…

Somehow, the yellow envelope “spoke” to me, as if by not opening it I was going to endanger my life or miss vital information!

To the LEFT of the envelope, where generally at least my eyes read first, in BIG print it was written: Receive Your FREE Social Security & Medicare Information Brochure. IMPORTANT to note: FREE was printed in the largest print and in bold letters. Social Security  and Medicare were printed in  slightly smaller print and were not in bold. “Receive Your” and “Information Brochure,” were in the smaller print and… you guessed, not written in bold letters! Other attractive statements were printed on this irresistible yellow envelope, but for now, what I a disclosing is sufficient.

I opened the envelope and pulled out a simple GREEN card. For starters, in the language of colors, green subconsciously makes us think of money and generally of the verb -action,  “GO” (think of the traffic lights -when the light changes to green, our cars GO)!!!

In very large print in the middle of the card, there was written:


As I read the content of the card, written in simple, not confusing language, my heart pounded with hope. Forget about stress heart tests,  this magical card was enough to make my heart pound at its maximum and not kill me! Yes, kill indeed, because the good news  the green card was announcing, was senior citizens and their families that “the Senior Plan,” which now paid $255 as funeral expenses, was going to pay up to $15,000, IF the dead person qualified!!! To determine IF the person qualified, you guessed it again, the card had to be mailed back TODAY!!! The sender was even paid the postage. All one had to do, was provide them their names, date of births, phone (for the spouse too) !!! Some of us might be better off dead than alive!

Oh…but wait…

On closer examination, with a magnifying glass, at the bottom of the magical, generous beyond believe, on the green card, here was the KEY:

” Not affiliated  with, or endorsed by any Government or Medicare program”

Before making up my mind what action to take, I flipped the card  on the other side and noticed it didn’t provide a street address, ONLY a P.O. BOX in Lagrange, NC.

I also noticed it didn’t say anywhere about being an idiot to qualify!!! Suddenly, the decision became very simple:  instead of putting the magical green card in the mail box, I placed it carefully in my recycling bin.

Trash day is tomorrow.


Lesson Learned from The Free Trian Cobo DM/Rejuja Glow “FREE TRIAL!!!” Experience

As I was getting ready to write this post about the happy conclusion to my personal experience with the “FREE TRIAL,”  to let you all know that my bank, Bank of America, concluded their investigation and their conclusion was that my claim was correct. As a result, they awarded me the full credit of the transaction which their investigation concluded was a scheme. I was just going to share this with you and say, thank you, Bank of America, your professionalism is outstanding and I am glad you are my bank!

As I was starting to write this short post, I received a new comment by TIPPER which put the whole experience in a whole new perspective. The information in this comment is so valuable, I felt I MUST encourage you to read it. It is the last comment on my blog, and brings into the picture a new perspective and other products such as Acai berries, Geopharma, Fulfillment Center and an UNBELIVABLE CONCEPT  to rip off customers with little risk of being discovered!. I encourage all the readers to go to Tipper’s Comment for the details! 

The summary is that this company has been ripping  off people for the last 10 years!!! How could this be possible??? For the details please read Tipper’s comment,  which I did not entirely verified. However Geopharma did file for bankruptcy.

The concept is that when too many complaints are filed and ONE product and the NAME of the respective company  become well known as being a scheme, the SAME people,  CHANGE not only the product which is marketed but the name of the company!

THE ONLY CONSTANT is the location, their warehouse is the same, in Largo, Florida. In other words, it is possible that people are being ripped off by the same company disguised under different names and selling different products!

I thought this information is extremely valuable, so an extra thank you to Tipper and to all the readers who commented and helped us all to understand this type of scheme.

Please, if you continue to discover anything that you think is wrong and dishonest, share with us. There is so much Evil in the world, at least through our combined small actions we tip the scale in favor of the Good in this world in hopes we, together will make it a better, safer place. Thank you all for your contributions and for reading my blog.
