So you are also left handed. then you will be more creative, that will give you and I a big advantage once we get rolling. I wonder what two, or better yet three right brain thinkers together could create. I also love animals, and had two ducks when i was younger, I named them donald and daisy. they were lots of fun.

ducks are awesome, they make me smile and laugh every day. much better company than a lot of humans sad to say. what's this about being left handed. i'm highly creative and a genius too. what's this rolling you want to do? Maybe i better visit your profile page and figure out what you're on about :)

Hello Rob: Thanks for the follow. I'm an artist/musician type also and I've often wondered if we "right brained" types can do this IM thing. I think we can, but we'll do it in a little different way. Look forward to seeing you out here on WA. :)

Splashduck I was going to ask you where you're from. Could tell from some of your pictures that you are near a large body of water. I took a look at your Splashduck site only to find you're from the Land Down Under...beautiful Australia.

I've alwayed love the Ozzie accent.

Stay well and enjoy the journey.

Thanks Terri. I've lived in Western Australia since 1981.

I was actually born in the North Island of New Zealand and was raised there. After living with my Aussie wife for 28 years and raising two Aussie kids I sound more like an Aussie than a Kiwi.

We live in Mandurah, Western Australia, a small coastal city, nice place to live, lot's of sunshine:)

Hey, Rob
I know what ya mean by health problems, I been there (actually, still have them).
I got hurt at my last job and was in a chair for 4 to 5 years. Dr. Said I
Never walk again, but I busted my but in theropy and I am walking again.
That is why I started this Internet marketing, cause I couldn't get a job.
I am permanently disabled (I have RSD), but that didn't stop me. You
Have to adapt and overcome & move on, most people can't or won't do this
as it takes a lot out of you. I believe it is a test, not sure why but a test
none the less. The only problem I have is the meds I am taking.
They messed my stomach up (I know have colitce on top of other illness).
As you can see, I am pretty messed up but you can't let that stop ya.
We will succeed someday, no matter what the cost is.
Good luck, and remember you will succeed.

Wow, you've been through a lot of stress and done extremely well to overcome many obstacles. Internet marketing is something we can do from home when we have disabilities and health issues. I'm glad we have WAU to learn and hopefully find success in terms of making some income.

Being unwell for a long time is draining in every way including financially. We need all the extra bits of income we can get to buy medications and especially some natural remedies like vitamins and minerals which always cost quite a bit but can really help us to feel better.

I would be interested to learn what "RSD" is and also "colitce". Do you have some links to resources that I could visit and learn from? It would also help others to learn and become a little more understanding of what you and others in your circumstances deal with each day. Put the links in a reply here if you like.

Thanks Newbie Affiliate and hope all goes well for you here at WAU and in your other projects.

Happy was the beginning of my adventures with ducks. She's a wild Mallard I rescued and raised. She's flying free now with her friends all around the Peel Region here in Western Australia where we live:) That sounds cool about your website.

I've had to prioritize a ton! Working 12 hours a day with the kiddos, then trying to put in 4 hours online caught up with me after about 3 weeks. Now I'm only working online about an hour a day during the week, then seeing clear goals got the weekends to allow for more family time and SLEEP.

Sleep yea that sound good :)

Thank you Larry, I visited your website and love your bottle collection. Awesome colors in old bottles, great for still life paintings and just for having around to look at. Love the way the light shines through them and reflects, beautiful.

My ducks keep me smiling and laughing every day. I'm hand raising two ducklings at the moment and they make us smile and laugh heaps.

All the best to you too and see you around. Did you see Kyle's most recent post about the new addition here at WAU. Pretty cool - http://goo.gl/Efihu

Thanks livinlyfe, you have a brightness in your way of expressing that I like. I find writing a bit daunting at times too. Some days it just doesn't flow at all so I do something else for a while until the spontaneity comes back. Rob G:)

Why thank you for the compliment. :) I do find that when I am away from this computer my best ideas come to mind. I need to utilize my phone more and dictate things when I think about them. That way I have them when I sit down at the computer. That might actually just work. lol

Reply

Thanks bigstevec, I try to keep a helpful attitude, not always easy but keep trying. I like music that sounds good:)

blues, jazz, funk, folk, latin, fusions of them all. What music do you like? Maybe I can find you something on Reverb Nation that you haven't heard before.

Thanks Julie, I'm looking forward to seeing my progress too:)

The duck in the picture was a tiny duckling, a wild mallard that I rescued when she was only a few days old. She's flying free now all around the Peel Region where we live. I really miss her but I'm happy she's out there living the life of a wild mallard duck.

Thank you for the follow. Tell happy hello for me, He look like he’s a good duck. Do you have any good pic’s of the other ducks
Reply

Thanks Jim, Happy is flying free now around the Peel region here in Mandurah. She was a wild mallard duckling only a few days old that I rescued. One evening she decided she was grown up enough to leave home. She got up on the roof and literally flew south into the sunset. She came back about 17 days later and blessed me with her company for the day and then come sunset got up on the roof and flew south again. That was the last time I saw her. I hope she visits again one day:)

I have lots of good pic's of my ducks. I have a couple of Youtube channels with videos and photos of my splashduck family. You can find video of Happy when she was little on a channel called mangaboy09. Another channel is called splashduck of course, Here's a link to try - http://youtu.be/Wdu4ujGfBb8 - Here's another link to a video of my first few ducks I got after Happy left when they were very young - http://youtu.be/T1rn6he9NLc
