Would You Want to Live to 150?

Barbara Walters is doing a special called "Live to 150" tomorrow night on ABC, so of course they've been talking about it all morning on Good Morning America and The View. It looks really interesting. They showed a portion of one of her interviews, with Dr. David Sinclair, on GMA, and, as Barbara was raising a glass of red wine to her lips, she asked how many glasses she would have to drink. The answer was 1000 bottles a day! So, while red wine is good for health and longevity, it's just not possible to drink enough of it to make a difference. Besides, who wants to live to 150 but have to be a drunk to do it?

The specific part of the red wine that is beneficial to health is called resveratrol, which comes from the skins of certain red grapes. It can also be found in peanuts, blueberries, some pines (Scots pine, eastern white pine) and the roots and stalks of Japanese knotweed (hu zhang in China) and giant knotweed. Since 1992, there have been various studies on how Resveratrol can slow down and even reverse many illnesses, from cancer to Alzheimer's to cardiovascular disease. In non-human mammals, resveratrol has been shown to prevent and shrink cancer, lower cholesterol, and boost immunity among other things. Information about the studies and tests on humans and specific diseases is also available.

RevGenetics sells U.S. Lab Tested Resveratrol, in dosages that have proven to be beneficial. Their R300 and R500 capsules offer the highest concentration of resveratrol currently on the market, providing dosage equal to that used in the well-known Harvard Medical School study conducted by David Sinclair. RevGenetics also provides information and links to all these studies so people can decide what is best for themselves. The studies provide a lot of information on the possible benefits of RevGenetics Resveratrol. It's a natural herbal supplement, and, as such, all statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Don't Forget the Coupon Codes

Last night Cory was trying to find a replacement battery for his iPod. It keeps dying every time he wants to listen to it. Really, he doesn't want the battery replaced. He wants a brand-new MP3 player, and he's decided he wants the 80GB Zune. His dad is planning to buy him one for his 16th birthday in July, but in the meantime, he needs something, so that's what the replacement battery is for.

They found one online and were ready to order it but first I made them look for coupons at Coupon Chief to see if they could get a better deal - free shipping, anything. Unfortunately there was nothing for this particular site, but at least we looked! It would just bother me to buy something and then later find out there was a coupon we should have used. When it's time to buy that Zune, I'm sure we will be looking for Best Buy coupons or Circuit City coupons - or coupons for whichever site has the best price.

Buzz for Your Blog

A common theme on a lot of the blogs I visit is the desire to increase blog traffic. We want people to visit our blogs, but finding a good way to make that happen isn't always easy. Recently I signed up for Buzzfuse.com to try and get more traffic. It works by adding a widget to the end of posts you want people to notice. Invite your friends, build your circle, and get people to rate your posts. Popular items show up on the front page so more people will see them, or people can search for content they're interested in. For instance, I submitted a post on changing your template in Blogger. If you search for the keyword 'template' my post comes up.

Buzzfuse can also help promote photos, videos, songs, or whatever else you want to promote. It's all pretty easy and, did I mention FREE? I think the hardest part is deciding what posts I want to build buzz for. I need to get busy building my circle and submitting more posts though, because they're giving away 1000 premium accounts (value ±$180.00). To be eligible, you need to have more than 30 people in your circle and have submitted at least 2 items.

Here's the Buzzfuse widget that helps market content:
