IN THIS MONTHS ISSUE: November 2005
The sudden changes in weather from around the globe has helped create a dust storm of people heading off to their local paint supplier, in fact I have to admit that I have spent most of my time lately painting and getting paint off my hands.
Cold damp and wet weather are great reminders that any metal work, iron bars and fencing that are showing signs of rust with unsightly orange stains - are just going to look a lot worse if they have to go through another wet winter without protection.
So if like me - and many of my friends you have left this job until now... it really is time to get out the iron brush and sand paper to clean off the rust and then paint on two good coats of Hammerite while you still can...

the planning, measuring and time you need to work well.
Plumber, Carpenter, Painter - Candlestick Maker...
We had so many people write to us about starting their own Web site during the coming long winter evenings - about themes such as home improvements, decorating houses carpentry, plumbing and also a whole lot of other great ideas that were not home improvement and financing related at all...
The main doubts that many of these Home Improve E-zine readers have is that (1) they couldn't leave their full time job and (2) they couldn't write in the HTML computer language!
So just to set their minds at ease -
(1) - let me tell you that you should NOT leave your full time job - at least until you are confident with -and get a good income from your up and running on-line business, when you start out - use your free time to develop your own Web site.
(2) - I couldn't write any HTML when I started - I wanted a site building system that would do that for me - so I would just have to write articles. The other important factor for me was that I still wanted control, i.e. to be able to write or edit pages whenever I wanted to - and in 2004 the company I found was the only one who met my requirements and as we approach 2006 - it is still the best one that really enables you to build a Web site of your own with all the friendly support you need.
If, like these people, you have been thinking about it over the last month - take another look at the information article that we prepared and scroll down to "case studies", to read about other peoples experiences making a web site using the same all in one web site building tool that I did - and while you are there grab a copy of one of the easy to read and understand Courses - they don't cost anything but your time to read them and get the insight you need to get started now Make your own Web site this winter

It was acceptable in recent years to shove a computer in the corner of your living area or even in your bedroom - but... as more and more people are opting to work from their own homes instead of spending hours in the traffic to work for someone else...
The idea of having a space in the home dedicated to the "Home Office" has really become important. The costs of commuting, hassles at the workplace, the threat of pandemics wiping out a good percentage of the worlds population - weigh heavily against all of the benefits of staying home and being able to spend more time with the family.
