As part of my commitment to provide as much value to society as possible; this section includes information and links which you may find interesting, helpful and which save you time, stress and hassle, as well as money
I like to honor and appreciate people, businesses or organisations from whom I have benefited, which is another reason I have created this section. I think it important to be grateful and to help those who are deserving. Some links are online businesses, others are ‘bricks and mortar.’
Additionally, I am an experienced Internet shopper (since the early days in the mid 90′s) which, coupled with my profiling and investigation skills (includes mystery shopping experience), and low tolerance for nonsense or poor/sloppy service, means that anything listed here has to be very good. Only the best will do – my time is too valuable to waste and I expect the same high standards of quality and service which I extend to my own customers . I do not however accept responsibility for your own personal experiences with these businesses.
If you are a consumer reading this, then it is worth bearing in mind that business grade equipment, or consumer products that are popular with business, are often a better choice. In the past, I have owned a wholesale business, as well as retail, and discovered that a lot of really good stuff is not readily available to the public and sometimes hard to obtain. Many excellent products which are better than the norm are often more obscure and the purchase method can be “off the beaten track”.
Most pages in this section contain extra information about the link/resource concerned, so are more than just a simple listing.
This section will be updated with new content and continue to grow over time.
Anything, or anyone, I recommend also reflects on me, which means that links to other product/service sites are those which I have found to be of a high standard (this does not of course mean they are perfect). Life is for living to the full, time is short and very valuable so I have no tolerance for the “also rans” or “second division”. One of my philosophies is that if something is worth doing, then it is worth doing well. That said, I cannot accept responsibility for your own personal experience with third parties.

I hope you enjoy and benefit from the links and other information provided.
Linking to a website does not mean I endorse the content of those sites, their views, their services or products.
Anything, or anyone, I recommend also reflects on me, which means that links to other product/service sites are those which are of a high standard in my opinion. Life is for living to the full, time is short and very valuable so I have low tolerance for the “also-rans” or “second division”. One of my philosophies is that if something is worth doing, then it is worth doing well. I do not give a favorable review or recommendation or endorsement of a product or service that I think is crap, or which fails to deliver on its promises. That said, I cannot accept responsibility for your own personal experience with third parties.
Some links are “affiliate links”, whereby I might receive compensation if you make a purchase, others are not, however I do not list, or endorse, sites just because I might derive an income as a result. You will not pay more for a product or service as a result. There are many sites I could mention/list/endorse, but don’t; because it is an important life philosophy to act according to genuine decent principles (an aspect of spirituality). Whilst I have noticed that life goes much better when I do the right thing by others, it is not the reason I act that way.

Footnote for those with spiritual understanding or interest: I have been very blessed by life/Spirit. One of the keys to this is that I focus on truth and not my own opinion. I also cherish the desire to ‘do the right thing’ – it is impossible to cheat Spirit and such behavior would adversely affect both my relationship with Spirit and the associated benefits. I would be mad to do so. Relationship with Spirit builds character.
