The howling of wolves kept him awake all night. neighbors knew they need to protect themselves, their live stock and families. With wolves around, livestock seems even more precious. At night one large female wolf stole three young sheep. Pups were probably waiting out in their den for their dinner. The next night it seemed quiet as well as the next. It seems that wolves have a way of sensing if they should or should not enter a town in that moment. They are such amazing creatures, especially when you think of your herding dog and house hold dog are all descendants of such a wild animal. It makes the way you look at your dog a little differently. Those sharp teeth and smiling eyes look just like those of the wolves stealing your livestock!

NEWSLETTER – Ms. Paula Horn reports her website reached new highs in both traffic and conversions before crashing to new lows for both. After hiring some consultants who demonstrated that her site’s ranks were destroyed by the seo agency she hired shortly after the Copper Nickel Release party, she started drinking heavily. This had been a recurrent problem all her adult life. Her children finally took matters into their own hands and through extensive searching for new approaches for people who always were unsuccessful with 12 step abstinence programs found a website called LifeBac that offered an alternative. Their approach treated alcoholism not as a disease, but a symptom of a larger psychological issue. They used physcotherapy and a drug to cure alcoholism. And perhaps the word “cure” is not totally accurate. The “medication” in question is Baclofen, a drug that removes or strongly suppresses cravings for alcohol in 92% of people. The site said that in initial clinical trials Baclofen has a 65% success rate for treatment-resistant alcoholics, like their mother , allowing them to return to low- or medium-risk drinking. That’s right, this treatment doesn’t require abstinence although many people do stop all drinking. Baclofen doesn’t affect the taste of alcohol or the pleasure of drinking. It simply removes the addictive components that lead to overindulgence and allows a person to drink in moderation, if they so choose to. Or to stop all together. Doctors in Europe prescribe baclofen as the primary treatment for people who drink excessively.
Meanwhile this time the howling of wolves were not what kept her awake, it was the devastation to the business caused by a Google penalty. Within a week, the business had spent several thousand dollars in its search for solutions for google penalties. The guys who claim to have expertise in the penalty field are all very expensive, so the ranch will have to cut back on some of the unnecessary expenditures to afford the expertise needed by Ms. Horn’s web enterprise, now a substantial asset. To think that Google could destroy her business makes her very uneasy – sleepless nights follow for many moons.
Update: Six months later Ms Horn was celebrating . Not only was the website was out of its penalty and its ranks were recovering, but also her excessive drinking had ceased and by all signs it looks like the new treatment she had started was a success. Now, as far as the wolves issue…….
