Everyone who is older wants to look younger. The number of products available is astronomical. It is a wonder that they all stay in business. There are lotions and potions, supplements, exercises and various products that only a licensed physician can provide. Those include Botox, face lifts, light therapy and more. The number of ads for this is staggering. If it wasn’t for the older generation, many of these companies would be out of business. People who abuse themselves their entire lives with drinking, smoking, lack of exercise, eating fast food, high caloric intakes on a daily basis, are the ones who once they discover they are going to die if they don’t change their ways, are their best customers. Too little too late is usually the case. However, while they are trying to hold onto life, they will spend any amount of money, do anything and try anything to make themselves well again and look younger. The hair loss industry loves this as well. Everyday I see adverts for thinning hair, going bald, losing hair, etc. The amount of money spent to save a person’s hair is enough to feed a family of three for a week. Sure we all want to look younger as we age but if you abused yourself your entire life, unless you have large sums of money for plastic surgery and are willing to give up your old ways, it is never going to happen. Not that this has anything to do with the Good Gus series, it’s just that once again today older women are showing off on internet their bikinis just to prove they do look younger. The series can be found online at Kindle with a few books on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” does have characters, particularly females, who wish to look younger, but the younger men come along to steal all their money and for a brief period they do believe the are younger and beautiful. The book is available online at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
In many events in life, there are always side effects. For example, many people have gained considerable weight during COVID. Now one of the side effects is obesity. People were no longer going to work, the grocery, exercising at gyms or even walking anywhere. They had nothing to do but eat so they did. In addition, if a person was already extremely overweight, their chances of surviving COVID were slim to none. Many people passed once they caught the disease because their bodies could not handle it. Obviously, there are side effects from many medications. I once took a medication that gave me very bad side effects. When I called the doctor for a different product, the nurse said that I could expect that to happen. I told her absolutely not as this was not a mild reaction. I literally had to argue with her for a new prescription. There are also side effects in life. If you are kind then generally people will be nice to you. If you are rude and nasty, people will dislike you and not want to associate with you. I love the arrogant people who believe they are always right and argue with everyone. Then they wonder why they have no friends. In the Good Gus series there are a variety of side effects. You can find the books on Kindle with a few on Nook and Waterstones. “Misplaced Trust” is also online for your reading pleasure at 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Playster, Scribd and Tolino.
Have you ever noticed the outrageous claims companies make to sell their products? They seem so unbelievable and their product reviews reflect what they want you to believe. However, if you really research further, you will find that like most things in life, the product reviews are fake and lies. There are two that are my favorites. They are miracle weight loss and anti aging. The miracle weight loss product reviews sound too good to be true and that is because they are. They promise immediate results without exercise and you are allowed to eat anything. However, if you take a quick look on the internet you will find that you need to eat right, exercise properly and avoid high fat and high sugar foods. Of course, you have to do that to lose weight anyways. It simply doesn’t melt off no matter how many products make that claim. The same is true of anti aging products. Just today I saw a picture of a women where the ad claimed she looked fifteen years younger. If you look at the ad closely, you will see a much younger woman with a gray wig. Sometimes I wonder just how stupid do they think we are! The only product reviews in the Good Gus series, available on Kindle, were word of mouth. If a product was good everyone bought it. In those days, it made or broke a business. Obviously, there was no internet and the newspapers only carried important articles. As Christmas is approaching, I hope you will consider the Good Gus series for the young readers on your list. “Misplaced Trust” had no chapters that included product reviews. However, the individuals who have read the book have told me that they find it was very interesting. It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Playster, Scribd and Tolino.
