The Normalcy Bias – and what it means now to you and I…

Most people alive today in the developed world have NEVER known true hardship – do you agree? 

People are creatures of continuity – “most expect what has been, will always be”

Join me as I explore the Normalcy Bias and these two statements – and you tell me if you feel there is a point to be made here. 

I look forward towards hearing your thoughts and feedback on this (at least to me) most provocative topic.

24 inches of snow in 24 hours

Yes, its for real! Yesterday was an EPIC powder day.

Tomorrow is shaping up to be yet ANOTHER epic day!

Here is a video clip (no, its not me, but it is some of my colleagues with the Steamboat Ski School)

I have some of my own pics below. I spent much of the day in “black diamond tree runs” (and my left knee today is reminding me of that!) My first run was on a trail called “no names” – one of my friends took me up there – its a DOUBLE BLACK DIAMOND run – and I had to be nuts to even follow him! We actually had to hike up a hill to get to it. It was some of the steepest (and sickest terrain I’ve seen – EVER.) Truth be told, he is an *incredible* athlete (and 1/2 my age) so when we got in there, he was “off and running” and I was at the top of a chute with a 55 degree pitch! I managed to survive my “side-slide” down the chute (which later in the day several instructors admitted they also have done at that point in the trail!), but after then I had some of the best untracked powder skiing I’ve ever experienced!  The rest of my day was spent in and out of tree runs of the single black diamond variety – and some of the powder was CHEST deep! In short… Steamboat Rocks! 

Did you see the report on the U.S. economy today (1/30/13)? Contraction?! And… did you see the reaction of gold and silver to this news? If you have not already seen my post, you HAVE to see this..http://alansills.com/home/gold-and-silver-the-time-is-now/

One in Three suffer and die from this – and it does NOT have to be YOU…

Locating myself in a super healthy area like Steamboat for the winter has really focused me on a mission to “get the word out” about heart disease, heart disease risk, and the related conditions (stroke, heart failure, etc.) In fact, I even created a blog just for this topic – called Heart Disease Risk.

As a ski instructor and avid skier, I have the opportunity to work with a large number of people. Some are others as myself, avid skiers, others are “weekend warriors” who come to Steamboat to get away from their day to day lives.

heart disease risk

it really DOES rock out here!

My role here confirms what I already knew: If you lead a healthy lifestyle, your odds of living an active life greatly increase throughout your life. You see, our ski school has SEVERAL “octogenarians” (folks OVER 80), and you should see them ski!

I know for myself, at 54, after 2 months of “intensive” training, I feel like I’m 18. Just today, I got off the slopes (7 inches of fresh snow by the way!) and feel strong, even after pushing myself to ski about 6 “black diamond” runs in a row – and I mean REALLY ski them, not just “get down them.” Oh, and did I mention that they were TREE RUNS primarily. That means, if you make a mistake, you may find yourself in a tree well or worse!

Now, what about my students? Well, they have ranged in age from 14 to 70. Some are in good condition, many are not. I just spent two weekends working with a 43 year old man who is finding out that 25 years of “lying around” has left him out of shape – the good news is, he is open to getting back into shape. And even in one week, he is much better. Last Saturday, he was ready for a body bag by 2pm!

Activity and conditioning is important, but it is not everything. A good diet certainly helps and from a book I read a while back, I try to stick to “God made foods” and NOT “man made foods”. But… there is one more step –

Being a chemist, I know the importance of supplements. NOT the “typical vitamin” supplements that simply make expensive pee; but the kind that can make a difference. Those are few and far between – but – the good news is I’ve found one.

It is called Cardio Protogen, is made by a company called Good Life and contains Arginine. The video below shares my thoughts on arginine, the company I am recommending to you and the arginine product they produce – essentially answering why arginine and why Cardio Protogen. If you like what you hear, contact me (561 676 1205) to see about ordering Cardio Protogen and/or becoming part of our distribution network and profiting with us (there IS a real pathway to becoming a distributor with $0 investment in the ‘opportunity’ – I hate those $299 and $399 “distributor fees”, don’t you?!)

Gold and Silver… the time is now?

Here is an update… (posted 1/24/13)

From John Embry who reports in King World News (link provided to original article – but here are a few highlights):

“Well, I’m focused on the inevitable rise in the gold and silver prices.  It’s obvious when you watch the trading that gold and silver are being aggressively restrained here.”

“One of the things that I emphasized in my speech in Canada yesterday, Eric, was how attractive silver is.  I laid out a backdrop in my speech which supported a huge move in precious metals, particularly silver.”

You can see my video below – along with further analysis of where I see this all heading

Has the time arrived?

What does Germany’s move to “repatriate” their gold mean to you and I?

What about Japan’s decision to devalue their currency?

And… of course, our debt ceiling is about to be raised (again).

Watch to see what this all means to the price of gold and silver AND whether NOW is the time to act…

Send Out Cards – it just makes sense…

Well, as expected the rats are all crawling out of the woodwork!

As times get tougher, I see more and more scams (read: crap) being offered to folks who are having a tough enough time without someone trying to fleece them!

I gotta be honest, when I see people being offered some (most) of the nonsense out there, I get downright angry. Where did common sense go??

So, it leads me to Send Out Cards who has updated their presentation (and I believe they have done a GREAT job explaining who they are and what they do).

In short, my “filters” for evaluating any “business opportunity” are simple: Is the product or service I’m looking at something that folks WANT and WILL PURCHASE and is it PRICED to compete in the “open market”? What this means to me is – WE all have choices. We can go to a local store, local mall (well not me, there is no mall here!), or shop online (Amazon, etc.) – if I am going to bring something to you, I believe it HAS to complete with other vendors like the ones I’ve named. Make sense?

Towards that end, watch this video and YOU TELL ME – does Send Out Cards meet my filters?

Got 4 minutes? then watch this!


If you agree from the above video, I invite you to go here and try it out! Send a card and learn how the process works (watch the “our products” video).

Know anyone who EVER sends cards (or needs to)?

  • Ever send a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or holiday card? 
  • Are you (or do you know someone) in a business that SHOULD be THANKING their customers (clients, patients) for their patronage? (Remember – it increases RETENTION and REFERRALS!
  • Wants to SAVE money and NOT pay the stores $3 for a name brand card that is not the perfect card anyway?!
