Project info

I’m donating one day each month (maybe more depending on the size of the job) to fully plaster a room free of charge for needy families. When I started this project that’s all it was going to be, but now with the help from other tradesmen coming on board – the scope of what can be done has grown. So even though I’m donating a day, a job can sometimes take anything up to a week to complete with all the other trades involved.

I had people judging me at first as to why I started this project “free advertising” was my supposed motive and “There is obviously a catch” not only is this the response of what I call “negative thinkers” bit it’s completely untrue. Firstly, the original article I had done in the Evening Post did not mention my company name nor did it have my company logo on view. So both theories have been smashed to pieces purely with the amount of work I have done without asking anything in return. This is just the result of going through emotional and financial difficulties myself, slowly coming out the other side and wanting to help others with the skills I have.

How I see it is if people are in a difficult situation where negativity is rife, and the house they live in is in a chaotic state, then they would benefit from having just one room that’s been renovated with a lot of love, care and affection. That room can then be a room for the people to not only feel proud to be in but also where allot of positive thinking, focusing and assessing can be done.

That one room can be the catalyst of progression and growth, because if you enlarge the spirit then you will encourage the heart, The project has been a real joy for me, to say it has been spiritually rewarding is an understatement. The response we had so far has been unbelievably overwhelming the saying “there’s always somebody worse off than yourself” has never been more evident to me since starting this and that is something we should all focus on, being thankful and grateful for what we have got as opposed to dwelling on what we haven’t got is key and paramount to our own inner peace.

  1. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. OddsWidgets.com just released a new live odds widget which can display all sports, leagues and sports odds from more than 200 bookies. Just copy/paste a short piece of code in your page and your site would get automatically get populated with lots of content.

  5. I simply want to tell you that I am just beginner to weblog and absolutely liked you’re web site. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You absolutely come with tremendous posts. Appreciate it for revealing your website page.

  6. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!
