1.     Welcome and Update from Elena

Hello again and a warm welcome to all the new subscribers who
have joined us since the last issue.

On behalf of Jan Taylor, AHBBO's marketing director (and my
mother) and myself, we extend our most profound sympathies
to all those affected by the tragic events of September 11,
directly or otherwise.  Our hearts and thoughts are with you.

Last week I made a special advertising offer to AHBBO subscribers
which was to expire at midnight on Sunday, September 16.  As
most of us have been thinking of more important things this past
week, I am now extending the offer to Sunday, September 23.  See
segment 3. for details.

I seriously thought about not publishing this week.  However, as
many have echoed over the past few days, pressing on is all we
can really do.  Nonetheless, this week's article is different from the
articles you are used to seeing in AHBBO.  I hope you will indulge
me, just this once.

There is a banner on my home page that some of you with websites
may want to copy.  Please do so  (but please don't link to the banner
on my site - copy it to your own).  The Australian flag is also on my
home page this week, both as a symbol of international solidarity
and to acknowledge the 100 or so Australian casualties, along with
those of many other nations.  Little is being said in the press about
these victims and, as a result, their friends and families are isolated
in their time of grief.  Please spare a thought for the friends and
families of the many hundreds of "foreigners" who have also lost
their lives this week.

As always, thanks for reading. 

Remember, this ezine is for YOU!  If you have comments or
suggestions for topics you would like to see addressed, or would
just like to share your experiences with other subscribers, I want
to hear from you.  Please send comments, questions and stories
to Contact By Email .

2.     Home-Based Business Idea of the Week - Gift Baskets

The gift basket industry has exploded over the past few years and
continues to be a consistent money maker for those involved in it. In
many ways, it's the ideal business. You can run it from the home.
It's an extremely inexpensive business to start (you only need supplies
and a marketing budget). The product is in demand (who doesn't like
getting an artistic basket with fresh fruit, candies, or cheeses?).
Competition isn't much of a problem (you can easily set yourself off
from the rest by producing specialized types of baskets). It's a dynamic
business that is changing and developing with the times.

One of the newest developments is the candy flower basket. This is a
new type of gift basket that will definitely set you apart from your
competition. It's very artistic and creative, and pretty, too! The candy
flower basket is easy to make, and will turn heads wherever it is given.


There are many more ideas like this at the AHBBO Home Business
Ideas page at free home based business ideas with more being
added all the time.

4.     Feature Article: Everyday Heroes

© 2017 Elena Fawkner

I write this late afternoon on Thursday, September 13
from sunny Southern California.  It is a typical late summer day
in LA.  The sky is a hazy blue, the air is warm, disturbed only
by the slightest of breezes, a glimpse of ocean to the west, just a
little to the left of the Santa Monica skyline ... for all the world,
a day like any other in this part of the world at this time of the

But this is not a day like any other.  Today cars on freeways
fly the American flag.  Today the airwaves tell stories of death
and terrible destruction, of miracles and unfathomable heroism and
self-sacrifice.  Newspapers around the world are filled with surreal
images of what must surely be a scene from a movie.  But it isn't. 
It's reality and it's ugly.  In our numbness it seems unreal but is
becoming less so with every hour that passes.

Outside my office window on the 16th floor overlooking the 110
freeway, life appears to be going on as it always has.  Huge birds
lazily glide around buildings, buses trundle by, calmly and
methodically ferrying people about their business, a yellow school
bus now, taking kids home from school, and the late afternoon rush
hour just getting up a head of steam.  Any other day. 

It takes a certain kind of courage to keep going through the motions
in the face of such monumental disaster.  As I was leaving for work
yesterday morning, my cat had buried herself under the comforter
of my bed.  I wished I could have done the same and stayed there. 

Yet, on the television news, in the newspapers, on the radio, there
were and are nothing but image after image of REAL acts of
courage and heroism ... from the rescue workers who, once their 24
hour shifts are over, pretend to leave but go right back to work trying
to find that one person who may yet be clinging to life underneath
the rubble ... to the passengers on the plane that crashed into an
uninhabited field in Pennsylvania, with every indication they, knowing
full well their own lives were about to end, nonetheless were
determined not to take anyone else with them ... to those leaping to
their deaths rather than be incinerated in the maelstrom that, minutes
before, had been their workplace ... to the survivors of Manhattan
lining the streets in a quiet show of support and solidarity for their
fellows - survivors, victims and rescuers.

We bear witness to these great acts of courage and, as a result,
we and they are strengthened.  So, to all of you reading this, those
of you, like me, not "directly affected", if there is such a thing, to
those of you quietly and resolutely going about your daily lives despite
that heavy feeling somewhere deep in your heart as though someone
is pressing on it with his thumb, those of you struggling back to your
feet to stand tall with head held high, bloodied but unbowed, your
bravery is also witnessed.  Be proud of yourselves as I am of you,
my adopted country.  You are strong and brave and free.  And no
one can take that away from you.  No one.

5.     Computing Tips From The Newbie Club

Clean up your icons. Why leave them strewn all over your
computer screen... do you like clutter? Can't find anything,
can you? Just create a new folder by right clicking your
desktop and choosing New, Folder. Name the folder "My Stuff"
and then drag all of your icons into that folder. Now you
can see your wallpaper again! Just open the "My Stuff"
folder to access what was once a gaggle of icons cluttering
your screen!

6.     Motivational Tip For The Day by Jan Tincher

Do you make good choices?

Always remember this. Whether you do or whether you don't
make good choices, you are the sum total of the choices you

Start making good choices by realizing right now that anything
inside of you that stops you from reaching your goals is all yours.
And if it's yours, YOU can release it, let it go.

Any thought you have that doesn't work for you can be released.
Practice releasing bad thoughts every day until only good
thoughts are left.
