It was the decade of decadence. It was about glitz and glamour as well as baubles, bangles, and beads. Everyone loved Luke and Laura in the afternoon. Lady Diana became the People’s Princess when she married Prince Charles. Nighttime soaps like Dallas and Dynasty ruled the airwaves. President Ronald Reagan ruled the United States. Tom Cruise felt the need for speed. Michael Milliken was the Junk Bond King. Gordon Gekko taught Wall Street whiz kids that greed was good. Material Girl Madonna made her musical debut. What decade was it? We can only be talking about that terrific time period – the excellent eighties. Here are twenty-one ways for you to verify that you belong to (or belong in) the 1980’s. 1.Breakdancing on the sidewalk looked like fun. Now it just looks like you might break something. 2.You can still recite dialogue from any movie starring Molly Ringwald. 3.”Cell phones” meant the telephone people used when they got their “one phone call” in jail. 4.You had at least one of the following: a Cabbage Patch Kid, He-Man action figures, a Rubik’s Cube, or something with a Pac-Man logo on it. 5.You remember a lot of headlines about the Human Genome Project, which was a complete mapping of human DNA. You also remember how this was supposed to lead to the eradication of disease. 6.You remember the day that thousands of radio stations across the world played “We Are The World” at the exact same time. (Now, you’re singing it!) 7.Your first album was a vinyl 33 and you laughed at your parents because they wanted to play 45’s and 8-track tapes. 8.You know who Oliver North is and why he was in the news. 9.Someone on your street or neighborhood sent his or her life savings to a later discredited televangelist. 10.You hung out with your friends at the mall, especially in the video arcade where you exchanged those hard-earned quarters for tokens. 11.You know that “glasnost” means openness or transparency and “perestroika” means economic restructuring. 12.You and your friends made fun of the “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” lady. (The fictional woman was named Mrs. Fletcher and the product was the LifeCall emergency service.) 13.You inserted “like” liberally and unnecessarily throughout your sentences. Like so, “Like, that was, like, the hardest test we ever had. So after class, I was all like asking the teacher and she was like it wouldn’t have been hard if you had studied. Then I was like is that like wicked rude or what?” 14.You know there was only one way Dorothy on the Golden Girls could make Sophia behave. She simply said, “Shady Pines, Ma, Shady Pines.” 15.You’ve actually tasted New Coke. Extra points if you wrote to Coca-Cola and insisted they bring back the original formula. 16.You remember when there was no such thing as CNN, E!, or MTV. 17.Your parents were afraid you’d cut yourself putting on a snap bracelet. 18.You were inspired by Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female Supreme Court Judge, Sally Ride, the first female astronaut and Geraldine Ferraro, the first (and as of this writing only) female Vice Presidential candidate. 19.Renting horror movie sequels about Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers took up a lot of your time. 20.You loved the opposite sketches and green slime on You Can’t Do That On Television. 21.You played Atari, Intellivision, Sega, Nintendo, and Coleco until your hands went numb.

Just the other day I was peacefully carving up the tarmac on the motorway, when I saw a couple of nuances that I’d never noticed before. BMW drivers never indicate and Volkswagen Golf GTi ‘drivers’ are more of a danger to the planet than global warming. And so it was left to a Vauxhall driver at a set of traffic lights to re-instate my faith in owning a practical car, that looks good, goes like the clappers and doesn’t stereotype me into being hated. What I witnessed at first had me checking I’d taken my medication. Mr Vauxhall driver had a pretty wife in the front, five screaming kids in the back and more luggage than any carousel at Heathrow in the boot. In a scene not too dissimilar to that bit in Star Trek when they say ‘warp speed’ and your television goes all funny and blurry, the lights went green and the Zafira – yes Z-A-F-I-R-A – a people carrier, was gone. Was the wife actually Spock? Was William Shatner back from his legal stuff in Boston? No. Before the Zafira disappeared I caught sight of the badge on it’s rear ‘Vauxhall VXR’. Now I’d agree that you have every right to be sceptical that the Vauxhall VXR range which encompasses the (deep breath): Corsa, Astra, Vectra, Monaro, Meriva and Zafira, is no bigger or better than the deluge of other performance cars other manufacturers currently produce. They all promise that heady mix of the practicality and safety you get with the base model topped off with a sadistic, whiplash inducing engine for your extra cash. Personally I’m at the stage in my life (well I’m 24 but I like to think I’m no longer a boy racer) where I want the speed but also a bit of sophistication. Gone are the days of strapping an exhaust the size of a small village to my shed and screaming “look at me” to the passing kebab houses. The fact there is so much performance metal to chose from means that prices are competitive and the standard is high. So what are the options? Well we can exclude the Golf GTi because I can drive, the Renault Clio F1 197 has an “F1 inspired rear diffuser” that shows as clear a link to their F1 car as the Arctic Monkeys are inspired by Cliff Richard. The Seat Leon Sport is brutish, the Mini Cooper ‘S’ is titchy and for hairdressers and the Honda Civic Type R is flawless…until they went and spoiled it all by doing something stupid like a new model. This then leaves us with the two great rivals, the Oasis and Blur of the motoring world: Vauxhall and Ford. Where Vauxhall have the Corsa VXR, Ford have the Fiesta ST. Ford Focus ST? How about the Vauxhall Astra VXR? Tit for tat these motoring giants slog it out with cars similarly specified and priced and with spot-the-difference performance figures. Personally I’m a VXR man, but sales figures show that both companies have fans of equal measure. Until we reach the completely unique Vauxhall Zafira VXR… The fact this article is dedicated to a people carrier is surely testament enough to it’s prowess, but as a further endorsement, this article is about “the fastest production MPV ever made” – impressive. Remember how the extra two seats in an MPV had to be left on the driveway when you wanted more boot space? The Zafira solved that by ingeniously having them fold into the floor of the car. It’s also claimed the maximum five star NCAP safety rating for an MPV. The VXR version has all this to it’s name and 237bhp which helps achieve a top speed of 144mph and a 0-60 time of 7.2 seconds. It comes equipped with Recaro racing seats, VXR styling cues from Vauxhall’s British Touring Car programme and a ‘sport’ button which increases steering and throttle response when pressed – all whilst piloting six others and your luggage! You may expect the car to roll over like the lovable family dog, but even the cornering is poised. I’d be a liar if I said it didn’t roll more than the Corsa derivative for example, but compared to any other people carrier it’s simply breathtaking. From a buyer’s perspective expect decent residuals as the depreciation on the old, less powerful GSi version strongly suggests I’m not alone in my admiration of the ultra-fast people-carrier combination. Granny in the back may not appreciate the performance, but to your kids you’ll be daddy cool. The insult of having to own a fun-less people carrier has never fallen so flat on it’s face.
There has been a lot of buzz around Derek’s Gehl Warp Speed Wealth system that was released April 2006. Many people were wondering why the Internet Marketing Centre (IMC) releases a similar product to their ‘flag ship’ product the Internet. Well, it’s easy to explain. The ‘Internet Marketing Course’ is the flagship course of IMC. It explains simply just everything. Not one single detail is missing and you have to work the course in order to make it happen. Well, because many people are interested in getting some quick revenues, Derek Gehl and his IMC team have decided to launch a smaller version of the IMC course that explains the most important steps how to make money on the internet – quickly! Derek Gehl has condensed all the important information how to create ‘information products’ to sell for massive income and put it together in the Warp Speed Wealth System. For all who don’t know Derek Gehl. He is the CEO of the Internet Marketing Center since August 2005 after the sudden death of internet guru and legend: Corey Rudl – the guy who converted $20 US into a $40 Million US internet empire. I have bought the Warp Speed Wealth System and worked with program. I would like to give an honest and full review on this system. If you consider buying this program read on and make up your own mind. Delivery to Australia took only less than a week and the program arrived in a glossy professionally made box. I found a lot of material and was quite shocked at the beginning: ‘how can I ever find the time to go through all this material’. But I sat down and made a plan to watch one DVD a week. Sounds not a lot but each DVD is accompanied with a workbook manual, so you certainly need some time. If you consider buying this course you can watch the DVD’s maybe in a shorter period of time. There are DVD’s where Derek talks ‘Live’ on stage on one of this weekend seminars. That’s really powerful stuff and you have to keep in mind that you’ll have exactly the same experience as the people who paid over $2,000.00 in travel expenses to watch Derek ‘live’ in person. There are over four hours of training on these DVDs. That includes carefully chosen highlights of Derek’s seminar ‘SPILLING MY GUTS’ in special ‘break out’ clips. I personally enjoyed the concept of ‘How to find hot Products to sell on the internet’ and how to avoid the #1 mistake made by 90% of Internet entrepreneurs. Derek explains step-by-step that you NEED to search for a market FIRST, before you make a product and not create your product first and then look for the market. Listen, if you are new to internet marketing and want to prosper from it (basically everyone can), this information is basically a Must-Read in my view. I haven’t found such a detailed but easy to follow plan how to information products and earn big. Here are some topics of the Warp Speed Wealth System by Derek Gehl, IMC: * Where to find FREE tools that you can use to create a web site — in less than a few hours! * How to save thousands of dollars and build your own money-making web site quickly and easily (even if you’re totally new to computers)! You do NOT need to know HTML! * How to Drive 1,000’s of Eager Buyers to Your Web site — Exclusive 55-page Guide * Make Thousands Every Month By Recruiting A Sales Force of 100… 1000… even 10,000 People Who Will Do All Of Your SELLING FOR YOU!* (In this third guidebook, you’ll discover the exact same strategies Derek uses to attract over 1.8 million visitors to my sites every single month… !!!!) But, there is much more… You will also meet Jermaine Griggs, a 21-year-old kid from the inner city making $800,000 a year with exactly this system. This is an amazing story and the interview with Cory and Jermaine of an additional bonus DVD is truly inspiring. But that’s not all…Derek gives you also some excellent bonuses you need to have, like ‘Derek’s Rolodex of 167 Must-Have Internet Marketing Resources. I was amazed also by his $50 US Yahoo! Search Marketing voucher. That means you can get immediately a Yahoo! Search marketing advertising account and you can bid on some of your keywords. I actually tried this PPC offer first and placed some bids on keywords promoting another affiliate program. I was amazed when I checked my Clickbank account that I have made two sales overnight. Wow ! That’s all what I could say. So, overall WARP SPEED WEALTH is the most comprehensive system you can find on the internet to make money. Of course there is some time involved to work the program but basically you can get started immediately and have your first product out in a couple of weeks time.
