About HarveyBrown
Joined March 2016
Hello I am a retired Government of Canada employee. Through my employment I have had the opportunity to travel north, south, east and west of Canada. While on these trips I always found time to visit entertainment centres where a live band was either playing the music of the 50s, 60s and 70s. In particular Rhythm and blues (R&B), Soul, Disco, the Blues and Jamaican music. Don't get me wrong I like all types of music, including Rock from the same time period. I have been in love with music from a very young age and that love affairs continues. It is probably one of the only things I will not retire from.
My hobbies are reading, mostly books on African, African-American and Jamaican history, crime and legal novels, martial arts history and novels; cooking, watching movies, especially those made in the 1930s and The Godfather One and Two; and of course listening to music. The genre of music tends to change with my mood, but most of the time it is classic "Lover's Rock", Reggae R&B and Soul.
My life time study is Japanese Karate, which I have studied and taught for the past 45 years.
I guess you can say I am a continuous learner and this is a new adventure that I am looking forward to pursueing.

Hi Harvey. Thanks for following. Like you I'm at retirement age although I still work full time teaching people to buy and sell shares on the stock market. I also analyse companies and manage portfolios. I love music, especially the 1930's to 1980's. I live in Africa and at one time I was a diamond dealer and this gave me the opportunity to travel from East to West, North to South. Africa is a fascinating continent.

Hello Raynor your travels sound extremely fascinating. Africa and I do mean the continent is on my bucket list to explore and I am hoping to start in the next two years. Would love to sail down the Nile and see the sunset.

Hiya, HarveyBrown! Thank you for the 'follow'!... My! You have an interesting Intro there. You are an active man! :) Music? Ahhh yes, music is certainly a way for us to momentarily move into another world; amen? How 'bout the Gospel Music? I love God's praises; and all the more in the relationship w/ JESUS. You know, He tells us that , 'apart from Me (Jesus), we can do nothing" (Jn 15:5). Thus, I'm bringing Him along in this WA community / opportunity, too :) I hope you all won't mind? For, we ALL can certainly use His blessings here, amen? :) Anyway, good to meet 'cha, and thanks again! :)

Me too - I am a music woman. I travelled with a music group for eight years in Europe as I've been playing the trumpet now for 45+ years. And Harvey Brown, I'm a life long learner as well. I just love learning new things and stepping out of the box!!! Welcome Back!

hi harvey, i am Davidsoren. i found your bio very interesting and i hope you found my post interesting too. you did not say if you were interested in magical science and religion. my website, which doe not have an ip address yet so can't be looked up yet, but which is built on Wix, is called magicplazas.com. i have already ordered some great pictures to it and it was registered at Godaddy for one year; i am wondering how to transfer it to Wealthy affiliate and keep working from there on WA; i wrote WA to find out but have not received a reply yet. if you know anything about these questions, please enlighten me.

Hello David, yes I have an interest in the magical/mystic sciences, but like Houdini,find there are too many charlatans out there. I find the whole subject of spirituality fascinating and I am still a student.
If you click on the Site Rubix button on the left, a drop down will appear, go to the Site Domain button click on that. The second subject down is transfer of a domain, click on that and proceed according to instructions. I did not have to do this since I started from scratch.

Thank you for the follow. Welcome to my realm I also am a lover to a lot of the music you listen to with a small twist I also love the crying steel guitar or a beautifull sounding harp may this venture only continue to feed your desire to learn and grow. I also will be following you.

Thanks very much for the follow my friend. Great reading your profile, we share the same tastes in music. I play in a blues band at the moment, and strangely enough I played rhythm guitar for 2 years for a Bob Marley tribute act!

I have to admit though I have never seen any of the God Father movies. I have seriously lost friends by telling them that :-) :-) :-)

Anyway, you've got a follow back!

Nice to meet you Frank. Classic movies are the best, like old R&B and Soul music, they allow you to escape into your imagination. It this day and age we do not have a choice when it comes to learning. Keep in touch.

Hi Harvey, nice to meet you! Thank you for following me as I am just over a week new with WA and plan to get started with the training so I can share all the great rewards others have attained in their WA so far. I wish I would have found WA sooner, but no time is a bad time for anything. Yes, and continuous learning is essentially the greatest reward in life! I wish you the best in your journey and reviewing your progress.

My dear friend as you love music i would suggest you to listen hill songs on youtube . they are worship songs, glorifying Jesus. my favourite songs are 1. Here I am to worship, 2 Here I am Down on my knees again. 3 oceans. My non worship favourites are Sugar and Happy by Pharrell williams . I would suggest you to hear some indian songs also. If you are interested to listen Indian sons though you may not understand but they will touch your soul please let me know. Bye

HarveyBrown Premium
Hello Shilpi, I do listen songs on youtube, but not religious ones. While I am spiritual I do not follow the doctrine of Jesus. It would be nice to really listen to Indian songs but like all other genre of music, both the instrumental and written words are important to fully understand the song, why it was written and the mood it is trying to provide. Thank you for your suggestions.

Hi Harvey,

Thank You so much for adding me to your “Following”!!!

I feel you on the Music Bug!!! Started buying Beatles LP's with my paper route money when I was 7 (1965). And then took Classical Piano from 7-15 years old when piano gave way to high school sports!!!

Retired in 2011 and am in the process of teaching myself guitar - both acoustic & electric 6-string and have two 4-string bass guitars!!!

I like to listen to "everything" - also depending on my mood - people look at my iTunes Library and are amazed at all the different genres I listen to!!! ;-)

I have seen a lot of internet programs over the last 4 years and this looks and feels right!!!

I would greatly appreciate it if you would please let me know if there are any important tips that you think a “Newbie” like I am to WA can benefit from!!!

Best Wishes for Your Continued Success!!!

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

Kevin

Hello Kevin, yes the music bug did hit me and for several year I tried to play a string of instruments, piano, mouth harp, voice and guitar. I had minor success with all but like anything else practice is a must. I have never really been a Beatles fan, although the album Sargent Pepper's and a few after that. I am a Rolling Stones fan from day one, something about Sir Mick, Keith and Brian. I do listen to all music even hip hop today. While not impressed there are one or two artists that have original songs.
In terms of tips for Wealthy Affiliate, do the courses and lessons. Kyle and Carson have put together a very comprehensive lesson plan. The other thing is to complete the tasks with each lesson. They will solidify what the lessons are trying to teach you. Last but not least ask questions. There are some remarkable people in the community and most of them are willing to help.

Thanks for following me. much appreciated.

Do you mind if I bounce a concept off of you?

I've been working on a project for affiliate marketers for a while now. I would appreciate your thoughts if you have the time.

Every now and then I would like to get the opinion of a wide variety of affiliate marketers, like a sanity check.

Would you mind if I share it with you?

Just got started into WA and have alot of work to do to get my business going and I'm still working a day job. Hoping to retire in a couple of years from the Oil Refining business for a big Oil Company. Take care and talk sometime.

Harvey, How about a little "doo Wap":)

I'm like you, I love it all at certain times. Well, don't get mad, but I can do without hiphop. I just can't get into it. And their videos are close to Porn. Well, I've shown my age, I guess.

I like you and I'm gonna follow you. You sound like my kind of man.

HarveyBrown Premium
Hey Luther, you must be close to my age, so one thing I will ask, do you remember the early days of Rock, especially the Rolling Stones? A lot of our parents thought that was the Devil's music. Where it has transitioned is both good and bad. I can't say I like all Hip Hop but some is quite good, some yes is both vulgar and close to porn. Yes I must definitely will do some Doo Wop. One of the great periods in modern vocals. If you have any favourites drop me an email. Always happy to play something I have not heard in a while.

We just don't forget where we came from, the source of everything that we may give the credit to Him the giver of our life. To do the things you love, you won't retire on that, especially music, We are in this WA where we can shout to the world the good things in life, the best way, share to the whole world what you have loved to do, it will be remembered. No one can take it from you. WA is where we have the liberty to work as a boss and enjoy it at the same time. Like work and play.

Interesting profile and what a great path you've followed. I'm also a music lover (but aren't we all to an extent...LOL!)The Japanese Karate sounds REALLY AWESOME!!! I love the kick butt martial arts type stuff but then again I'm a soldiergirl who was trained in hand to hand combatives so go figure, Right? lol!

I used to do Krav Maga training which is Israeli Street Fighting and it gave me an adrenaline rush. The thought of being able to take out 20 dudes or people all at once by myself was the reason I signed up for the training. Although I didn't get that far with the training, I did learn some basic fundamental self defense techniques.

Well nice to meet you Harvey. Take Care and thanks for reading my blog post!

Thanks Larry, we are not that far. I still study spirituality. When I was working I studied business ad investing and still listen to music. I study Japanese martial arts which means basically the physical is first then we study the internal. A little different than Chinese martial arts that usually start with the internal and go to the external. Now that is a generalization but I think you understand. Thank you I am enjoying putting it together.
