Closing Down Harmony Lane blog

Hi everyone

This is just a short post to advise that I have had to reduce the number of blogs that I have so that I can post to them on a more timely basis.

To that end I am closing my Harmony Lane blog as of now.

The good news is that I will be maintaining only three blogs that will hopefully focus a little more exactly on the topics that appear to be of interest to my web 2.0 readers, twitter followers and FaceBook friends.

Here are the links to the three.

My NEW health blog "Signs of a Stroke " http://www.signsofastroke.blogspot.com

My Home and Happiness blog about my Island home "Hidden Island Paradise" http://www.hiddenislandparadise.blogspot.com

And my working and freedom blog "Location Independent Living Now " http://www.locationindependentlivingnow.blogspot.com

You can subscribe to all three of these blogs in "Google Reader" for example (an RSS feed) so that when I post a new entry it is automaticly posted in your reader.

Check out this video for more information on RSS "RSS in Plain English" by Common Craft.

Thanks for reading and I hope you continue to follow and read on the blogs that I have given links to above.

"The Hockey Song" A tribute to Earl


I just wanted to share a favorite by one of Prince Edward Island's native sons.

"The Hockey Song" by Stompin' Tom Connors was one of my brother in law's (Earl) favorite songs. Earl loved to watch hockey and he was an avid Vancouver Canucks fan. (Earl lived much of his life in Vancouver with his wife Irene and his four children John, Patricia, Frank and Bob)

He loved his family including two daughter in laws Leeanne and Cathy a son in law Gordie three grand daughters Shara, Kayla and Carlie two grand sons Dallas and Brett as well as his grand son in law Selcuk, great grand son Senol and great grand daughter Aliye

Earl's life journey ended on July 21, 2006 after a lengthy battle with MS peacefully with his family by his side.

I really can't imagine hearing this song without thinking of Earl.

This one's for you my friend.

Here is a brief history of the song found at http://www.cbc.ca/sports

Be sure to watch the video below.

"The Hockey Song" is a Canadian anthem, written and sung originally by Stompin' Tom Connors. It is now routinely played at hockey arenas where crowds sing along.

The song first appeared on Connors' 1973 album, Stompin' Tom and the Hockey Song. However, the song did not reach its tremendous popularity until 1992. It was at this time, that the song was played at Hockey games. Fans took a liking to the song, and it spread throughout both Canadian and American hockey arenas. Today, it is a well-known song, celebrating Canada's love for its national game, hockey.

The song is well known for its chorus,

Oh! The good old hockey game,
Is the best game you can name;
And the best game you can name,
Is the good old Hockey game!

The verses of the song are split up, so that each one describes a period of play in a typical hockey game.

Have You watched "An Inconvient Truth" yet?

Good Evening and Welcome back

It is a bit cooler here at Harmony Lane tonight. (about 29F not bad for Jan 14th)

Phil I stocked the fridge with extra Pepsi ( just for you) and Irene I just got a fresh box of Apple Cinamon speciality tea on my walk to Tim Horton's today so I hope you like it. (sure smells great) Bobby, Gordie and Pat you are going to have to let me know what you would like when you come to visit. You can leave a comment at the bottom of this post if you like.

I just finished watching the DVD "An Inconvienent Truth" (about 90 minutes) with Al Gore on the subject of Global Warming or Climate Change whichever you prefer. I would recomend it for viewing as it really makes you stop and think. By the way don't miss the update by Al Gore (about an additional 30 minutes) in the added features section.

If you go to Mr. Gore's website http://www.climatecrisis.net/ there is a link to http://www.erideshare.com./ Our local RideShare PEI Yahoo Group is registered with "erideshare" as a car pool group. Car pooling is one way to reduce the amount of carbon that we are putting into our air every day. As Mr. Gore tells us in his movie every little bit helps.

Also you can check out my Hidden Island Paradise Blog by going to http://hiddenislandparadise.blogspot.com/ (our green island is getting more and more giant wind generators all the time. (getting us off fossil fuel for the production of our power)

Although this is not a FREE DVD you don't have to buy it as it is available at most movie rental stores. (check it out today) A bargin to be sure!

Thanks for stopping by and I will try to put up the post on AdAware SE for Spam in the next day or so.

Drop in again soon. It is such a thrill to have you come by for a visit.

Safe home now and enjoy the movie.

New FREE Anti-Virus

Hi Everyone

Welcome back to Harmony Lane. I have been asked recently about how to protect your PC from attacks by Viruses.

Well I can only tell you what I use and it seems to be doing the job. I use the FREE version of AVG from GRISOFT.

GRISOFT is announcing a new version of the AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. This new 7.5 version with improved performance and full compatibility with the latest Windows Vista version is available. Users that are using AVG Free 7.1 will be provided with a specific dialog, within the next few weeks, with the opportunity to choose the right option fulfilling their needs. AVG Free 7.1 version will be discontinued on 15th of Jan 2007.

Click here to go to the download page for AVG 7.5 FREE

So there you have it. The other two things that are a bother are "SPAM" and "Popups". I have suggestions for FREE solutions to those as well and I will deal with them in the next two blog posts.

Hope you enjoyed your cup o tea today and do come by and visit again soon.

An Awsome Software Site!

Hi and welcome back

I gotta tell you! I just finished listening to the latest mp3 netcast of Tech Watch Radio and the guys were featuring the software 995 website.

Now this site has a multiple of software products that sell for $9.95 USD each. These products are awsome just look at the number of customers that they have.

OK there is a better deal since that if you buy the "tool key" for $29.95 USD then you have access to all of the tools. (products)

Pretty awsome eh but I know this blog is all about FREE stuff right?

Well here is the icing on the cake! All, yes all of the tools (products) are downloadable FREE!

Now there is some sdvertising but the tools are fully fuctional and spam free so go take a look.

Thanks for comming back. I know it's been awhile since I have posted here at Harmony Lane but I have been doing all kinds of things like learning more about setting up and running websites, putting some ideas up on other blogs, networking with some website developers and copywriters. (who by the way have health issues as well)

Well I think I now have something like seven blogs here at blogspot and so I thought I would try to post to a different blog every day and that way all the blogs will get a fresh post every week.

So look for a post here at least once every week. (I like weekly as that is the rotation of the tech sites that I keep up with)

So lets give it a try and see how it goes. I will look forward to having you come visit again next week. So for this week check out my other blogs. (just go to my profile to get the links)

Smiles :o)


p.s. Don't forget to check out software 995.com

Experience the freedom to work from anywhere on the planet!!!


To night I set up an opt in page so that you can request my new "The Amazing Report".

Here is the link www.blackberrykewl.com

Go there and request a FREE copy now. (as there are only 47 FREE copies to be had)

The reason is very simple I wish to build a very valuable subcriber list in order to share even more valuable information on how today's technology CAN provide the freedom of lifestyle to work from anywhere on the planet.

So go get your copy NOW!!! Read it carefully to begin your journey toward the freedom lifestyle that most people only dream of. As one of my valuable subcribers you will continue to receive valuable information to assist you to achieve your work and life goals. (to achieve the freedom lifestyle)

The reason for the limited number is that I only need about 50 interested subcribers in my inner circle to share the journey. That number may be expanded in future but don't bet on it. (more likely future opportunity to join the inner circle group will only be by invitation)

So go Now!!! and subcribe to get "The Amazing Report" Additional details will be revealed but only to my very valuable subcribers (the inner circle group)

Smiles :o)
