Top 3 Ways To Play Your Classic Arcade Games

By Vagish Vela 

In the 80s arcade machines were literally everywhere. Starting from Japan, and penetrating the world with their amazing games. This was before the times of home consoles, handheld consoles and smartphones. Everyone had to go to an arcade to go play their favourite games, and many of these games have left an everlasting effect on the gamers. In recent times it has become harder to find how or even places to play these arcade games. This guide will outline the top 3 ways for you to go back in time to your youth and just battle your friend in Street Fighter II CE or try to finish that final level in 1942. With over 1000s of arcade games out there, you will never really be spoilt for choice.

1. Visit Your Local Arcades

Finding your local arcade can be hard, with a lot of the pure hardcore arcade gaming areas having shut down due to the popularity of in-home gaming. You can find one of them by doing a simple Google Maps search for either "arcade" or "amusement arcade". Make sure to call them up and find out that they are still open. Some of the arcades might not be listed on Google Maps, and thats where things get trickier. Doing a Google Search for them probably won't come up with the best locations near you.

2. Check Out Your Local Pubs Or Bars

It is becoming increasingly popular for pubs or bars to introduce classic arcade machines into their establishments again. You may remember the tabletop machines in the past being available, well they are coming back! The best way to find one is to ask people at pubs or bars if they know a pub or bar with one, maybe even ask your local pub/bar to get one for their establishment. Google Maps would most likely not be of much use in this situation since having a retro gaming machine isn't the first thing business owners would put up on their Google Local listings. Google Search will probably be of more use, so try searching for something similar to "arcade pubs" or "arcade bars".

3. Play Online On Your Computer/Tablet/Smartphone

Technology and the web have advanced so much that you will find tons and tons of websites which have arcade games or similar games available. Unfortunately not many websites have the originals because of licensing issues. For example you'd find it unlikely to find the latest Final Fantasy freely available to play online, and this is a similar situation. However on the bright side, the licence holders of the arcade industry are re-releasing those arcade games on PC, Android and iOS platforms, so you might be able to get your fix there.

Bonus Way: Purchase Your Own Arcade Machine

Arcade machines for the home are becoming increasingly popular. There are dedicated arcade manufacturers making classic style machines with one game, or even multi-game ones. Some new arcade machines have PS3 and X-Box 360 compatibility built in, enabling the gamer to connect their next generation consoles to their arcade machine and play the latest games on an arcade format. Most home arcade cabinets come with a variety of options and are built-to-order.

The UK's leading manufacturer of []arcade machines is Bespoke Arcades.

The Problem With Online Coupons - Why Using Coupons on the Internet Could Be Hurting Your Business

By Scott E. Knight 

Traditionally, advertising with coupons has been an excellent way to capture new customers and retain existing customers. Using the Internet, promoting your business with coupons has become quicker, cheaper and easier than ever before. Unfortunately, Internet coupons for "Brick and Mortar" businesses may have become ineffective and quite possibly have a negative impact on your business if not used properly. The reasons for this are as follows:

1. Printing coupons from the Internet is like printing money, it devalues the coupons for the customer as well as for the merchant.

Coupons really are a form of currency. They are an agreement between the customer and the merchant. The merchant uses the coupon to say, "I will give you a discount or a special deal, and in return you will patronize my business." This is the basic give and take relationship that the coupon establishes and works very well, but only if there is just one coupon at a time.

The problem with most Internet coupons is that they are infinitely redeemable. Most of the time, patrons can print Internet coupons as many times as they want so that they can effectively receive the same discount every time they go to that merchant. If we were all able to print money from our computers in the same way, then our currency would instantaneously lose all of its value. By using printable coupons this way, the customer reduces the value in his or her mind of the products that the coupon applies to and therefore the coupons themselves. The merchant on the other hand must devalue the coupon similarly since it is no longer effective in creating a "give and take" relationship but rather just permanently discounts their products or services.

2. Having coupons always available further devalues them. If they are always there for the taking, then there is no urgency to go get them.

Similar to the point above, having a coupon always available to print off or redeem has the same effect as printing off hundreds of copies. Traditional print coupons have always been distributed periodically in a newspaper, magazine, postal mail, etc. This meant that you were only going to receive one and only one of those coupons until the next periodical was distributed. Therefore, if you had any sort of interest in possibly using that coupon in the future, then you would cut out the coupon at that moment and be ready to use it. With Internet coupons, knowing that you can always revisit a website and print off a coupon whenever the need arises has the effect of also making the coupon worthless. This is because, (a) most will forget that they ever saw the coupon and will therefore never go back to print it off and (b) most importantly, the coupon loses its promotional value of trying to get someone to take action now.

3. Most coupons on the Internet are on a "pull" model instead of a "push" model.

When customers have to go out and get coupons, instead of the coupons being "pushed" out to the customer, then they only get used by the true coupon frugal fanatics and not by first time customers or customers who have forgotten about you. Again, traditional coupons have always been sent "pushed" out to prospective customers and therefore acted as a great way to proactively promote businesses.

Also, Internet coupons on a "pull" model, where customers must visit a coupon website and see what coupons are available, have no market testing value. One of the greatest advantages of marketing with coupons since they were first studied by Claude Hopkins in the early 20th century, was to be able to scientifically test marketing messages by "pushing" out the coupons and then tracking the ones that came back to you. Although this could still theoretically be done in a "pull" type scenario, the benefit of the "push" test system is that you could send out your message to a specific number of recipients within a specific time period and then receive back a specific statistical sample to draw conclusions from.

The Right Way to Use Internet Printable Coupons

The solution to "The Problem with Online Coupons" is to use the Internet to distribute your coupons while eliminating the issues stated above.

First, use an []email marketing solution. Sending coupons in email solves the "push vs. pull" problem by delivering coupons to specific group of people who have opted-in to receiving updates and specials from your business. Sending coupons via email also solves the problem of having coupons always available. Email allows businesses to mimic and even surpass the benefits of traditional print periodicals. Businesses can test to find the ideal sending frequency that keeps their business in the forefront of their customer's minds while also maintaining a sense of urgency and timeliness. Also, make sure to use expiration dates and/or "print by" dates to further increase the sense of urgency.

Next, incorporate a secure "one-time" printing system for coupon distribution. This will allow each email recipient of your coupons to be able to print them once and only once for each coupon sent. This may seem somewhat trivial or possibly even petty, but the reality is that coupons that can only be used once allows the merchant to be more comfortable with promoting bigger discounts and better deals while at the same time giving the customer higher perceived and actual value of the coupon.

Using these tools will allow you to not only dramatically cut advertising costs compared to traditional print coupon advertising but also allow you to use coupon advertising in the best ways possible. Actively promote your business to new and existing customers while using scientific testing to discover the best possible marketing messages for your business' success. Create a real marketplace for your coupons and their value will increase to everyone who uses them.

ZoomDeals is an innovative combination of a powerful do-it-yourself email marketing platform and a unique cross-promotional network of printable coupons that are searchable within a geographic area.

 “The prayer of faith shall save.” – James 5:15 ~

O Lord, increase our faith. By it may we be enabled to remove mountains of difficulty from our way. May it be our shield with which to quench the darts of temptation. May it steady and encourage us as we endeavor to form our plans and assume our duties and responsibilities in accord with Thy will. May it deliver us from fearful anxiety respecting our own welfare, and that of our loved ones whom we commit to Thy care.  May it incline us to be forgiving and patient and considerate and sympathic. May it prompt us to gracious and kindle words and deeds. May it save us from being too much gratified by praise, and from being too much east down by blame. May it lend zest to the day’s toil, and quicken us to renewed energy and fidelity in our work. May it impel us to humility and gratitude when we are granted prosperity and happiness, and my it preserve us against bitterness and bloom of spirit if want and sorrow become our portion. May it strengthen our hold upon possessions that abide, and be unto us the evidence of things not seen, and the substance of things hoped for. May it assure us each day, as we fare on our pilgrimage, that Thou art nigh, and lead us into the blessed experience of companying with Thee as a man walketh and talketh with a friend.  Amen.

 “He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.” – Ps. 9:12 ~

OUR Heavenly Father, we thank Thee for the watch care that was over us while we slept, and that Thou hast brought us in health and strength to see the light of this new day. But we need Thee more in the daylight than we do at midnight. Open our eyes to the opportunities and privileges of this day. As a servant would come to this master in the early morning to receive directions for the day, so we come to Thee, seeking divine guidance. Strengthen our bodies, clear our heads and warm our hearts, that we may live this day in accordance with Thy Holy Will, and that we may do nothing displeasing in Thy sight. Bless us in our home life, that by precept and example we may lead our children in the good and right way, and help us to make the atmosphere of our households so much like Heaven that it will be the natural thing for them to grow up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” Go with us into the larger and outer circles of life’s relationships, and everywhere enable us to help and not to hinder. Bless with us all those who cry to Thee for help, and hasten the day when all mankind will join in crowning Christ “Lord of all.” We offer our thanksgivings and render our petitions in the Name of Jesus.  Amen.

Watch this stimulating debate on the motion to legalize drugs. Since the drug war began 30 years ago it has cost the U.S. government $2.5 trillion dollars and has currently locked up over 100,000 nonviolent drug offenders in federal prison. The side arguing for the legalization of drugs points out how the drug war has primarily been waged against minorities and the poor in a disproportionate ratio to drug usage. They argue that drug use does not equal drug abuse, and that many drugs such as marijuana are less harmful to society than the current legal drugs of alcohol and prescription drugs. The side arguing against legalizing drugs points out the detrimental effects some drugs have had on communities such as meth and heroin, and how the drug war has to an extent deterred drug usage.

 “Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice.” – Ps. 27:7

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Thy Name in all the earth. Thou art our God, and the God and Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through Whom we, Thy children of faith, have the forgiveness of our sins Thou art our father’s God; and Whom they in the flesh confidently worshipped, we, their children, would also reverently worship and adore.

Humbly, yet devoutly, would we give thanks to Thee, O God, for Thy great love revealed to us in Christ; and for Thy rich and unfailing providences to us, and to all men. For Jesus’ sake, receive our thanks. Continue Thy loving favors to us, and grant us pardon for sin, and life eternal.

Give us, we beseech Thee, the Holy Spirit as our Guide this day, into truth. May He ever comfort us and all Thine in times of sorrow or of trial. May He strengthen us when we are weak. May He raise us up again, if we fall. May He interpret Thy Word to us, and enable us to do Thy holy will with gladness of heart.

With us, bless also this, our nation, and the whole world with Heavenly peace, for Jesus sake. Amen

Good Morning H-23

Hexagram 23

I. The Oracle 

A. Hexagram twenty-three is related to or has reference to Peeling Off, hence, the splitting apart of something.

Another variation would be the idea of peeling off something such as an onion to get to the core of the origin. The time is not correct for drastic movements in any direction; at best stay still and wait on the will of heaven. Again, there is no advantage in whatever direction one might take at this time, if you do, take it slow.
   1. Now is not a good time to cross the great water. I say that because as the image depicts, that of the mountain which sits upon the earth. There is no movement with this instance. There is some headway if one recognizes that like the mountain keeping still fares well at this time and yield to the times of meditation and planning for upcoming strategic activities.
   2. Splitting Apart:
This is the times of Falling Apart. One must at most strengthen his or her present position by strengthening those below, that way peace and stability are ensured. Remember, the mountain has for its support the earth, in order to fortify the foundation of the mountain, it will fare well to ensure that the density of the earth, or else there will be a collapse. Help from above fortifies the foundation. The bottom of the barrel supports the contents.

B. The Image

  1. Mountain sitting on the earth
      a) In whatever you do expect little movement, except when ensuring the plans of others
      b) Thus there is no advantage in whatever direction movement is made, unless you are just lucky, the four leaf clover

II. My interpretation 

A. There is a tendency for things to collapse at this time; no matter how well planned the objectives. It’s just not the time. Again, all I can see for today is go nowhere, do nothing, take no action whatever at this time the best resolve is to ensure the plans of others, forego your own plans until a later date.

   1. Again, now is not a good time to cross the great river, in plain words, there will be going and coming with some loss. The hexagram has more to do with that bad dream you had last night, and trust me, I know you did. As the hexagram denotes while one is asleep there is an attempt to say one of the legs of the bed by a prankster, hence, interference of sleep or a bad dream so to speak. I did too. The core of your body is at work doing homeostasis at this time. That could be the reason for the hexagram warnings against any kind of activities at this time. Most hexagrams have the effects of three days before, and three days after an indicated change. In three days there are two things about to happen, an eclipse and the spring equinox. Remember, that there is no success in seeking any destinations at this time. The weak prevail over the strong and correct. The superior person recognizes the effects of time and adheres to the fact that at this time within the continuum the inferior men will at this time be predominating.

(Update 7-8-2019) Splitting apart sort of reminds one of an EarthQuake. It recalls the situation of the bell curve and degrees of movement, in this incident, there are three days before and three days after the main event.

(Update 3-15-2020) Being modest about my stuff today, really taking it somewhat slow for a moment as we move through the pandemic. They are calling it Corona Virus 19. That number finally means approach as if that means anything. the number after that means contemplation, do that, and the number before that means working on that which is spoiled.

Hexagram 32

Bookmark and Share

By: James Byrd

I.The Oracle 

A. Hexagram 32 is Heng, or Preserving. Further variations are Duration and Constancy. The lower trigram is Xun: ground or wind, and the upper trigram is Zhen: shake or thunder.     

B. The Judgment

   1. Duration. Success. No blame.
       Perseverance furthers.
   2. It furthers one to have somewhere to go.  

C. The Image

  1. Thunder and wind: the image of duration.
  2. Thus the superior man stands firm

      And does not change his direction.   

II. My interpretation 

A. "Constancy"

The key idea with this hexagram is staying our original goal, which is, maintaining a dogma so to speak, from start to everlasting. Staying the course will, just as an attack on a city, not mean that that municipality must for the sake of damage, misalign its original aim.

A good sign of constancy is the sun rising every day. I remember once here recently I awake at 9: pm at night and I was thinking it was about 9:00 am. I went out for the morning walk and witness people queuing to go into the night clubs. I kept thinking secretly when was the sun coming up?  Be consistent as the rising sun.

From the start, there must be some type of small steps towards the desired goal – such as with my college motto which states, one has to “Start To Finish”, but not only that, in between the start and finish clause there must consistency to the tune of maintaining one’s integrity throughout the extent of steps taken towards a favorable goal. Another example would be the movement of a football from one end zone to the other without breaking the rules of the game.

Holding on to the past as we move forward is like a court stenographer in a modern courtroom, which is no longer needed due to the modern age of video cameras from all angles. But having live feeds of all activity within a courthouse could cause somewhat of a problem, because we would be overcorrecting our true intensions.

One must maintain his or her modus operand throughout the process scaling towards their well-established outcomes. 

Update: 3-14-2020, Air out.

Frontline Plus is the no.1 vet recommended flea and tick treatment for canines. Easy to apply, this topical treatment combats fleas and ticks for a whole month.

The Benefits of Echinacea and Goldenseal in Natural Cold Remedies

The Benefits of Echinacea and Goldenseal in Natural Cold Remedies

By Amelia Bentrup

Have you seen goldenseal and echinacea on the shelves of your local health food store? I'm sure you've heard about the benefits of echinacea. Wondering what the benefits of goldenseal are? With cold season quickly approaching, I bet you're looking for natural cold remedies that work. You may be wondering how echinacea and goldenseal can help you recover faster from the common cold.

One of the benefits of goldenseal is that it helps you feel better without the use of over the counter medication. Colds make your nose feel icky,'s either constantly running or totally stuffed up and uncomfortable. The beauty of goldenseal is that it is a mucous membrane "alternative"...this means that it moderates mucous membrane flow in the body. It will increase mucous flow in areas with deficient flow and decrease flow in areas with excessive flow. This provides welcome relief when your nose is driving you crazy. Goldenseal is particularly beneficial for sinus infections and other upper respiratory infections.

Other benefits of goldenseal include its anti-microbial properties...another very useful property when you are fighting illness. Berberine and hydrastine are the active anti-microbial components of goldenseal.

Goldenseal is often combined with echinacea, in fact you can even buy goldenseal-echinacea combinations. However, if you can't find echinacea and goldenseal combined; take one 300 mg capsule of echinacea and one 500-mg capsule of goldenseal three times each day. Both goldenseal and echinacea work best when started at the first sign of a cold. Do no use either herbal supplement for longer than 10 days.

Some of the many health benefits of echinacea are its anti-viral, immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. These are all properties you definitely want in an herbal supplement. Echinacea is often recommended for bronchitis, strep throat and influenza.

Scientific studies have shown some controversy over the efficacy of echinacea as a natural cold remedy. Much of the inclusiveness of those studies is likely due to the fact that the studies didn't use a consistently standard echinacea product.  The quality and strength of herbal remedies vary quite a bit. A 2004 study published in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics and a 2006 study published in the Journal of Clinical Therapeutics showed that echinacea is in fact an effective treatment for the common cold. In fact, echinacea is even useful for treating canine upper respiratory tract infections. These studies can be found at

Echinacea and goldenseal are both available in the form of teas, extracts, or encapsulated powders. Encapsulated powders are the most common form, however, make sure the powder is a powder extract and not just dried herb. Extracts concentrate the active components, making them much more effective.

Amelia Bentrup is the owner and editor of [], a researched collection of natural home remedies for many common ailments. Visit [] for more information about treating a cold naturally. You will also find safety information and guidelines for both echinacea and goldenseal along with many other herbs.

Good Morning My Friend ~ (41-Loss)

March Ninth ~ God's Daily Minute

 “The Lord is good to the soul that seeketh Him.” – Lam. 3:25 ~

INFINITE FATHER, Thou art our life and light, our hope and redemption. We have tried the world and found it a great emptiness; we come back to Thee Who art eager to fill our souls with everlasting truth and mercy.

We come with a song in our hearts, for the list of Thy benefits is beyond our counting. We thank Thee for the stirring, stimulating days of the present, with their opportunities for improvement and service, their concern for the poor and ignorant. We thank Thee for the mysterious, inviting days which are to come, laden with secret stores for our replenishing, hidden delights, and dark experiences for our training.

We thank Thee for the silent heroisms of the home; for the hallowed drudgeries of hospital and sick chamber. We thank Thee that, despite the cleverness of wicked men and the foolishness of good men, the Kingdom makes steady advance. Thy bounty unto us is without boundaries. And yet we baffle Thy plans, thwart Thy love, and wander wretchedly from the way of Jesus. We return unto Thee this morning have our stains removed, our petty shams stripped away, and our hearts fortified. Have compassion upon us, and bring us all by and by to our Father’s home, through the riches of graces in Christ Jesus.  Amen.

SFI Affiliate Program Review by a Seven Year Affiliate

SFI Affiliate Program Review by a Seven Year Affiliate

By Donovan Baldwin

If you have spent any time on the Internet, and particularly if you have been trying to figure out how to make money online, you have run across the SFI affiliate program.

Perhaps you have taken the opportunity to investigate it further, perhaps not. However, if you have investigated a little more deeply, you have seen a lot of claims about how great it is, and maybe even a few comments about the SFI "scam."

Well, what is the truth about SFI? Let's review the program, shall we?

while people obviously want to know if they can make money with the SFI affiliate program, let's deal with the "scam" issue first. After all, if SFI is a scam, then there's no sense going any further, is there?

Since I do not know how much experience YOU have with Internet marketing, or network marketing, let me make a couple of points before I get to the question, "Is SFI a scam?"

I have been in direct (mail) marketing since 1992, in direct marketing since 1996, and in Internet marketing since 1998. I have seen all kinds of scams, and I have seen all kinds of claims for and against many of the same programs. Here's what I have observed.

While there definitely ARE quite a few rip-offs and scams out there, many people who make claims against network marketing and Internet marketing programs make the claims because they fell prey to hyped-up claims about what they could expect from joining the program. Some people join and sit back and wait for something to happen. Some take a few half-hearted swings at selling some product or signing up distributors and then give up.

Here's the common thread. ALMOST ALL of those who sign up for network marketing and/or Internet marketing programs HAVE NO CLUE WHAT THEY ARE DOING! At the same time, almost all have been signed up by someone who has raised their expectations to a fever pitch by making inflated claims about how much money they WILL MAKE, or about how fast their business will grow.

The bottom line is, the growth of any business, whether it is selling cosmetics (Avon), motor oil (Amsoil), or a broad range of goods and services (SFI) will depend on the time, effort, and talent of the business owner or operator.

The question of whether a business is or is not a scam does not depend on the number of people who have been successful with it, but whether or not it can and will deliver the goods, services, and potential profits it claims. I have been with SFI since 1992, and when I make a sale, my customer gets the product, and I get the commission. I have purchased and used many of the products, and I have been satisfied with what I have received for my payment.

Apparently my customers were satisfied as well, as they have often come back and purchased again and again. There have been dissatisfied customers, there always are in retail, and I am sure that many of them do not have a good opinion of SFI.

Looking at it this way, if SFI is a scam because some who have done business with it are dissatisfied, then so are Sears, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy.

There is the issue of misleading claims, however.

Well, once someone signs up to be distributor for ANY program, there is not much a company can do to prevent them from making inflated or misleading claims. I remember a few years ago reading a complaint about one of the most honest companies I know. Someone had actually brought a lawsuit against the company. What had happened was that one of the independent distributors had made false claims, directly against company policy, but, as a result, everyone assumed that it was the company making the claim.

There ARE a lot of people trying to rip you off out there in Internet-land, and some people who just believe that "advertising" means making the biggest, loudest, most audacious claim you can.
All I know is that if you go to one of my SFI websites and purchase something, you will get what you were promised at the price that was quoted, and I will get my commission. If that is a scam, then I am confused about the definition of the word.

Sorry that took so long, but, when it comes to SFI, and other network marketing and Internet marketing companies, that issue seems to be a big one.

Anyway, you came here for an SFI affiliate program review. So, what IS SFI? What does it do? What can YOU do with it?

SFI began about 11 years ago as "Six Figure Income". Over time, it acquired an image of being a get-rich-quick scheme due to the wild and high-flying claims made by many SFI affiliates. Also, however, although starting with only one product available for sale only in the United States, it progressed to being an international organization offering a huge range of products, and the SFI business opportunity, to over 100 countries.

In fact, founder Gery Carson's dream was to create a business opportunity available to anyone with a computer and Internet access anywhere in the world. That dream has been a reality for several years now, as thousands of SFI affiliates sell millions of dollars in product every year.
As businesses will, over time, the original Six Figure Income affiliate program became the "Secure Future International Marketing Group", retaining the SFI mark which had become known around the world.

Recently, Gery Carson launched a new and improved SFI affiliate program based on two sites in particular. TripleClicks and EyeEarn.

Of course, you are reading this to find out what you get if you choose to sign up as an SFI affiliate.
As it has been since the start of SFI, every new SFI affiliate receives not only one, but a range of free SFI websites, a free online portal leading people to several online stores for name products, free training on how to market online, and an array of free marketing materials, including banners, flyers, text ads, and presentations.

There is no cost for any of this to the SFI affiliate, but he or she is tasked with the responsibility of leading people to one of their websites. After that, the SFI infrastructure takes over. People arrive at a professionally designed, and regularly updated, website. Should they make a purchase, they are automatically assigned as a customer of the SFI affiliate whose website they purchased from. SFI will see to processing the payment, delivering the product, and even make the refund if required.

The affiliate receives a commission for the sale.

Many SFI products are either subscriptions to a service, such as web hosting, membership in the IAHBE (International Association of Home Business Entrepreneurs), or the IAB Health Benefits Plan: or are expendable products such as nutritional supplements which need to be re-ordered from time to time. Sales of products such as these allow the SFI affiliate to not only make a commission on the original sale, but to create recurring, or residual, income.

Sales of some products will allow the SFI affiliate to receive points, and, with enough points, they can begin to create a downline of other SFI affiliates whose sales will generate additional income.
The SFI affiliate program is an excellent place for the beginning Internet marketer to get started for the following reasons:

1. It is entirely free to join
2. It provides all marketing materials, including several professionally designed websites for free
3. It provides an extensive training program in Internet marketing (free)
4. It offers a broad range of products and services for the SFI affiliate to choose to target

If you cannot succeed with the SFI affiliate program, there is a good chance that you will not succeed with Internet marketing at all, as your only task would be to lead potential, and interested, customers to the websites provided by the SFI affiliate program.

Free eBook

By: James Byrd, MBA (Business Consultant)

Mark your calendar now. My book/calendar will help you understand upcoming days and generate less stress as to what a particular day in the past, present or the future will be like, or in essence, what will become an obvious reflection of what I keep calling, now-time.

My newest edition,  “The Future: 2020” is based on the first edition, (“Foretell the Future with the I Ching and My Calendar of Days.”) I just downsized the title somewhat and add more of my observations to be noted by my fans that have been following this project. There is also an eBook coming out soon to accompany this new edition. On 6/12-14/2021, just that one-day folks, “The Future: 2020” will be free to you, send a request below. "Free eBook"
