This latest linkage goes out to a cool photoblog. Normally I ignore these fellows but today I thought I would link to this one as it did catch my attention enough to stop and read.

I have not forgotten my BOD project but I have been hard at work on this blog: Lord Matt. Which is my way of pulling it all togeather.

I'm not dead, just dead dull (on this blog) at the moment.

  An update.

Well I've done it now. I am officially married to Mrs Beautiful Talker. It's taken us long enough to get organised and it took every ounce of effort to pull it off but we have done it and now we can relax... from that task, at least.

  Beautiful

Well here I am beautifu;l readers. Back from my wedding and dealing with everything that has piled up. I'll post some photo's from the wedding when I get a chance to. In the mean time here is an article that I found that seemed worthy of a beautiful reprint:

How to Develop the Awesome Power of Getting Other People to Cooperate With You
By Gary Simpson

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you never had to "lock horns" with other people? Well, there are some skills that you can learn.

Try this. Ask somebody to raise both arms so that they can touch the palms of their hands against yours. Don't worry about explaining anything to them. Tell them it is an experiment if you like.

Now you are facing the other person, you both have your arms raised and are "palm to palm." Start pushing. What happens? What does the other person do? Do it. The outcome is 100% predictable.

So, why, when you are seeking co-operation with another person should you be confronting to them? It doesn't make sense when you see it in this light, does it? What is your 100% predictable response when somebody starts forcing his or her wishes onto you?

Let's use an example. Do you say to your partner: "I want a cup of tea!"? Or, would it be better to say something like: "Darling, I'm really busy at the moment. I'd really like a cup of tea if you have the time to make it."

What does the second approach convey to your partner?

  • 1 - You are really busy right now,
  • 2 - You would really appreciate your partner making that cup of tea for you,
  • 3 - You have shown concern for your partner's time.
  • Conversely, what does the first approach convey?

  • 1 - You are rude
  • 2 - You are arrogant
  • 3 - You are lazy
  • It is far easier to attract bees to pollen than it is to gasoline.

    Look at your language. When you desire somebody to do something for you do you sound like a military commander? What sort of body language do you use?

    The easiest way to get co-operation from other people is to place yourself in their position. How would you like to be approached? How do you react to "orders?"

    People are reluctant to respond favorably to orders, unless, of course, they are in the armed forces. But that is a different matter.

    Governments, banks, insurance companies, lawyers, courts, politicians and employers all issue orders. How do most people react? They become defensive, unco-operative, resentful and at times, hostile.

    Can you now see the awesome power of getting other people to co-operate with you with a willing heart? Might you now make a concentrated effort to couch your requests in terms that they find palatable?

    Yes, this is an art. But like all arts, the more you practice it the more skillful you will become. Try it. You will be amazed at how co-operative people will become.

      Handy Hint: Flagging the unflagable.

    By now the blog-o-sphear is noticing has a new system to allow people to mark blog-spot blogs as bad in some way , , or just plain .

    However, the sites I'd most want to flag are the one's that annoy by covering or hiding the navigational bar. Now here is a little tip that many of you will enjoy using to deal with this little irritation.

    Add a new bookmark/favourate so in the links section (so that it appears on your tool bar). Make the target this:

    javascript:toggleFlag();
    and Bob's your uncle (as they say) - you can now flag blogs without being able to see the button. Of course, if there is no bar at all then this will not work... but it's a good start.

    Inner Beauty Not Outer

    The Beautiful Talker does not care for the outer appearance of the blogger. He does not care for the gender of the blogger.

    The Beautiful talker feels that to distinguish bloggers for gender, shape, size, colour, hair, religion or for any other reason that is not the content they produce is wrong.

    The Beautiful Talker does not like the fact that bloggers should be advantaged or disadvantage based just on gender. It is not moral or good to promote a link because the writer of the blog is a man or a woman (depends on bias).

    The Beautiful Talker now aims to ensure that blogs that use discrimination will not get a link from this blog.

    Just for fun I've taken the blog title and Googled it. These are some of the results

    Blogs at Buzz 42:

    You may also be interested in the Buzz 42 Community

    The Link club. A dotty bunch of blogs all linking to each other for the simple reason we are all mates in real life.

    You want to join you say? Hmm... better start telling everyone how great these blogs are then!

    Please note:

    paris hilton, eminem, britney spears and other girls were not involved in makeing this Blog.

    green day, lindsay lohan, carmen electra, jennifer lopez, 50 cent & girls gone wild compleatly failed to inspire anypart of this creation.

    This is not anime and we did not cause tsunami regardless of what you may have been told.

    We do not usher in new games with weather related lyrics.

    tattoos of thongs, jessica simpson and the word "dictionary" are not only unconected but unconnected with us in any real and meaningful way.

    The Beautiful Talker wrote 50,000 words in just 30 days!

    The Beautiful Talker is not ashamed to be a bloke even though he might get less links and less clicks. However it says this low down so you judge first on content first.
