Christmas is coming…

Special offer - copper bangle when you buy three magnetic braceletsOkay, so here’s the deal. It’s official. Summer is over, the weather is turning colder and rheumatoid arthritis sufferers are in pain. So what can we do to cheer them up? Well the obvious answer is that Christmas is coming. And that means… well you know what it means. But I didn’t come here to talk about the goose getting fat, or Christmas turkeys from Hollywood – or even pulling a Christmas cracker at the office party.

No no! I came to talk about the time of loving and giving – loving one’s wife or husband or boyfriend or girlfriend and giving them a present to bring a smile to their face.

 EUROPE 5 in 1 Elements GOLD PL Titanium Magnetic BraceletAnd MPS has some wonderful bracelets to choose from – along with a great Christmas offer.  The offer is that if you buy any three bracelets, you get the magnetic copper bangle in the picture FREE!

Yes, that’s right: absolutely free!

But of course, first you’ve got to buy three other bracelets. The good news is that when it comes to the Magnetic Products Store range, you’re spoilt for choice – especially when it comes to new bracelets. For example, on the right you have the EUROPE 5-in-1 elements gold coloured titanium magnetic bracelet.

EUROPE Multi Elements Rose Gold PL Magnetic BraceletThen there’s the EUROPE multi-elements rose-gold PL magnetic bracelet, on the left – a wonderful example of aesthetics, combined with the latest in high-strength magnetic technology with its Rare-Earth Neodymium magnets complemented by Germanium elements and other elements.

And there are many women’s bracelets available with gemstones too – all part of the offer. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Is there a bracelet to defeat lethargy

The IonTopia rangeI am tired. There! All right! I admitted it! It’s only twenty to eight in the evening (19.40) and I am already knackered, fagged out, bushed. Whatever you choose to call it. I can’t go on. I have no more strength. You might say: “Don’t be so hard on yourself.” After all, you’ve been working all day.

Yes but all day for means since about 11.30. I started late. So I’ve only been working for eight hours – and much of that was day-dreaming, getting distracted, eating, taking breaks, etc. That means I’m getting tired a lot more quickly than a young man of my age (ROTFL) ought to!

So the question I’m asking is this: is there a magnetic bracelet that banishes lethargy? It turns out there is. In fact, there’s a whole range of them.  It’s called the IonTopia range and you’ll see what I mean.

Football’s over, Wimbledon done and dusted bring on the golf!

Augusta Bio Golfers

As we move from winter to summer (England has no spring to speak of), the sports we play – or rather watch – change from high-energy to low-energy… or perhaps I should say; lethargic! At Wimbledon, that most quintessentially English institution, Andy Murray claimed his second victory in the men’s finals, dispatching his opponent in straight sets. A day before that, the formidable Serena Williams smashed her way to victory in the Ladies Singles.To my delight Portugal beat the hosts in Euro 2016 – making up for their defeat in 2004 when as hosts, they lost the final to upstarts Greece. This time, Portugal were the underdogs – and once again, the underdog won.

The football, on the day of Andy Murray’s victory, was no less impressive. To my great joy, Portugal defeated France, the hosts, in Euro 2016 – compensation for their defeat twelve years earlier when they lost the final in front of a home crowd to less skillful but more tenacious Greece. Who can forget the tearful face of the legendary Eusebio  – hero of the 1966 Portugal World Cup team and in 2004 their manager – as he found himself forced to swallow that bitter pill. But this time it was Portugal who were the underdogs as they played against a passionate and determined French team. But Portugal were tenacious too and this time it was their tenacity that prevailed.

But while soccer is a winter sport, tennis is a summer sport. And, It’s not the only summer sport, Now is the time for cricket and golf. And while we’re on the subject of golf, one of the great products that one can get from Magnetic Products Store (MPS) is the AUGUSTA BIO Golfers Magnetic Therapy Bracelet with a Leather Strap. Of all the beautiful and powerful magnetic bracelets in the MPS sports range this one is the king, with the most powerful magnet in the MPS range: 6500 Gauss.

hp-4-amps (ionTopia - white golf)The good news is that it is in the MPS sale and is currently available at £10 off its normal price. Of course, wearing a sports wristband does not make you good at sport.And there are many other products in the MPS sports range like the AUGUSTA BIO Golfers Magnetic Therapy Bracelet with Leather Strap (left) and the unbreakable SUPER PRIME (TM) Sky Blue Silicone bracelet (above).

On the other hand, if you’re more into mental sports than physical ones, you might like to take this survey on your game-playing habits, or check out this new game being developed, and it’s associated page on Facebook.

Oh, and I… er… hear there’s something coming up in the near future called the Olympics.

The secret is out…

For some reason, it is getting harder to spread the word about things that people ought to know – even on the internet.  That might be because the internet is so crowded. But whatever the reason, it certain explains why so few people know that when it comes to the title of “the biggest range of magnetic jewellery and magnetic bangles in the world,” the honour goes to Magnetic Products Store.  Their range of magnetic bracelets, necklaces, anklets, wraps and supports for athletes and golfers is unparalleled.

Their titanium range alone comprises some 102 different bracelets. This includes jet black, double strength, 4-in-1 Bio elements bracelets… and  titanium bracelets incorporating Swarowski elements, like the one on the right, below. And their range of copper magnetic bracelets runs to some 46 items. These include bangles, links bracelets and expanding bracelets. They’ve also got a wonderful collection of stainless steel bracelets.

Tennis Summer Sky

Then there are the energy pendants and the gemstone collections.

The big question is, why don’t we see more magnetic bracelets on the high street? I mean presumably, there’s a market for such beautiful products. Indeed, there certainly is. But taking these products to the high street is long and winding road. And taking it to the high street means many outlets. The internet makes these magnetic bracelets available all over the country and indeed the world.

Also, bear in mind that even in the online world, not everything is equal. Some magnetic bracelets are better than others. Some lines are better than others. And some vendors are better than others. Magnetic Products Store is very much top-of-the-range in terms of both quality and variety.

Election day and energy pendants

dual flames pendantToday is London mayoral election day and I am NOT going to write about it. Instead, I am going to write about something far more interesting: energy pendants. What’s the connection? Not much, other than a really bad pun I was going to make about indiPENDANT candidates.

But I digress (as usual). The reason I’m writing about energy pendants is quite simply because I like them. Instead of “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!” my motto is: “If you like it, share it!” At least share the news. I’m not suggesting that you actually share your energy pendants. I haven’t the slightest intention of sharing mine!

Ace of spades pendant

There is quite a big range to choose from. The flame and the ace of spades are two of my favourites.

I have written about them elsewhere, but I thought that now would be a good time to share it. Maybe it’s because I’m impulsive.

Or full of energy!!!

Removing links

Resize tool 1Purchasing anything on the internet is fraught with peril. I don’t mean the danger that it may never arrive, because that problem is dealt with by the Consumer Credit Act – at least if you pay by credit card that is. If the company goes bust or it doesn’t arrive, the credit card company takes the hit, not you.

But there is another problem with buying anything long-distance, be it via the internet or those old-fashioned mail-order catalogues. And that is that the thing you get might not be quite the thing you want, even if it is accurately described. When it comes to shopping, nothing beats actually being there. That is probably why women love to shop – well one of the reasons at least! Elizabeth Barrett Browning, once wrote a poem beginning with the verse:

 

” Yes !” I answered you last night ;
    ” No !” this morning, Sir, I say !
Colours, seen by candle-light,
    Will not look the same by day.

And, of course, what is true of men during nocturnal courtship is equally true of products sold by even the most sincere of internet retailers. Of course, every product sold long-distance carries its own set of problems, whether it be size, colour, compatibility, longevity, battery life, etc. In the case of bracelets, that problem is size. This, of course, is not the retailers’ fault. It is up to the customer to buy the size they want.

But even with the best will in the world, it is possible for the customer to get it wrong. If you under-estimate the wrist size, your only recourse is to return the bracelet and have it resized or buy a bigger one.  But if, on the other hand, you over-estimate the size when buying a links bracelet, then, at least, Magnetic Products Store offers you an instant remedy that spares you the hassle of sending it back.

That remedy is free links removal tool that comes with your links bracelet. One thing you’ve got to say about Magnetic Products Store is that they are very helpful to the customers.

But there is another way of making sure that you get a bracelet that fits and that is to get one of their very popular expanding bracelets. These are easy to put on and take off because they have no fiddly clasp. It just stretches over the hand and snaps back into place over the wrist. Simples – as those meerkats used to say.

Sports and magnetic bracelets

Sky blue silicone

Although football and rugby are played through the winter, Spring is really the season for outdoor sports. It may not have quite got here yet, but it is on the way. That means a lot of people who have been caught up in the lethargy of winter are going to start taking up sports again. And with people taking up sports after a long period of inactivity comes – inevitably – sports injuries.

But the good news is that Magnetic Products Store offers a range of sports wristbands and bracelets for the budding Olympian. Like the silicone sports band shown to your right. These bands come in many colours and here are some interesting facts about them:

  • The band is ultra-soft
  • The silicone stands up to all weather conditions and cannot corrode or tarnish
  • It is hypoallergenic – no metal comes into contact with your skin
  • The magnets are embedded in the silicone
  • No metal clasp to grapple with – just slip it over your wrist
  • Extremely strong – will not snap when putting in on. NEVER!!!
  • Extra strong magnets (Neodymium, 1500 Gauss)

Of course you’re not limited to these  silicone wrist bands. They also have some  other nice-looking wrist bands for sport like the ionTopia white (right). All of these are available from the sports section of Magnetic Products Store.

They also have a very nice golfer’s wristband.

Treat your lover to a Valentine’s Day magnetic bracelet

Tarim white crystals

Tarim white crystals

Our winter giveaway is now closed. It was a great success, with 83 entries and the winner has been notified.

So what’s up next? St. Valentine’s Day – the day when those who are young in spirit profess their love for… well, those whom they love. In the old days, it used to be handwritten cards filled with poetic verses – a true expression of thoughtfulness as well as love. But not everyone is a poet and the cost of printing was going down, so printed cards became all the rage. But printed cards alone seemed rather cheap – especially as they sparred the lover the need to find the magic words to woo his beloved. So chocolates and flowers became the order of the day. And wealthier lovers were in many cases both able and willing to go the extra mile and impress the lady of their fancies with gold and diamonds.

But from where the tradition of giving St. Valentine cards and gifts originate? If you stop the average Englishman or woman in the street and ask them who is the patron saint of lovers, nine out of ten will tell you that it’s the eponymous St. Valentine. But which St. Valentine. There are at least fourteen different saints bearing that name.  And three of them are associated with February the 14th.Valentines. But none of them had anything to do with romance in their lives – despite stories that one of them used to perform secret marriage ceremonies for pagan Roman soldiers who were allegedly forbidden to marry. In fact, most of these Saint Valentinius’s (Valentinia?) were Christian martyrs.  So what, then, is the connection between one or more early Christian martyrs and romance?

MPS Bio Energy

MPS Bio Energy

Well here, I can only offer a speculative answer. Firstly, it is important to bear in mind that in Christian tradition, marriage is a sacrament which symbolises God’s (and Jesus’) love for humankind. This is in contrast to, say, Judaism, in which marriage is a contract. That might explain why Christian martyrdom came to be equated, in the eyes of some, with romantic love. Nuns, let us not forget, are said to be “brides of Christ.”

Okay, so much for the mental association. But how did it translate into the actual practice of giving cards and gifts? The answer to that question can be laid at the door of one Geoffrey Chaucer, a writer who, in addition to being  the father of modern English literature was also a man of the utmost piety. In honour of first anniversary of England’s King Richard II to Anne of Bohemia in a treaty signed on the second of May 1381, he wrote a poem called the Parliament of Foules (they didn’t have spell-checkers in the middle ages). The poem contained the following words (translated into modern English): “For this was on St. Valentine’s Day, when every bird cometh there to choose his mate.”

There is some argument as to whether he meant February the 14th, the official St. Valentine’s Day, as designated by the Vatican, or the Feast of St. Valentine of Genoa, which is celebrated on May the 3rd. But regardless of what he intended, it was February 14 that became the de facto lovers’ day. By the eighteenth century young men were sending handwritten cards to the objects of their desire and by the nineteenth this gave way to printed cards – along with confectionery. Jewellery too was given by the affluent of suitors to their paramours.

But what of the less affluent? Magnetic Products Store offers an affordable alternative: magnetic and copper jewellery. And so in honour of St. Valentine’s Day, they are doing a special promotion, offering beautiful magnetic bracelets like the one pictured here.

Magnetic bracelets are the cure for January depression

Stainless steel and germanium magnetic bracelet

Stainless Steel and Germanium Magnetic Bracelet

The following article is about the January sale at Magnetic Products Store and the possibility of buying magnetic bracelets at greatly reduced prices to cheer yourself in the midst of a depressing winter.

Here’s a joke.  A female student in a class on Modern American History class was asked: “when was the Great Depression?” The girl thought for a moment, whilst fiddling with the magnetic bracelet around her wrist, and then replied: “January!”

And yes, it’s kind of not funny when we’re actually IN January. It just too raw and close to the bone. Especially as magnetic bracelets probably don’t actually cure depression – at least not by magnetism per se. It’s like telling someone with a broken leg a joke about someone with a broken leg. So maybe I shouldn’t really be joking about January blues and the limitations on magnetic jewellery. But I’m trying – in my clumsiest of clumsy ways – to segue into the fact that January is indeed a depressing time of year. (Yes cobber I know this whinging pommy is being boreo-centric – get over  it!)

POSITTANO Stainless Steel & Germanium Magnetic Bracelet

Okay, so what can we do about it? Maybe eventually global warming will do something about this infernal cold. But it still won’t make the days any longer, unless we realign the earth on its axis relative to the plane of its orbit.(I’m being nerdy now, but those of you who have seen The Day the Earth Stood Still will know what I’m talking about.)

The answer is that all we really can do is cheer ourselves up as best we can. And one of the things that our delightful friends in the world of commerce and retail have invented to help us in this endeavour is that most joyous of post-New-Year events: the January Sale!

 VENUS' HEARTS Titanium Magnetic Bracelet

VENUS’ HEARTS Titanium Magnetic Bracelet

Now obviously, one cannot, should not and dare not go overboard in January. After all there are still all those credit card bills from the Christmas presents and Christmas dinner to pay off. But if one can find a suitably item – not too pricey – that by its very nature gives one pleasure, then that is surely the ideal January sale purchase, is it not?

And what items are small and not too pricey, but radiant and bright to cure January depression through giving pleasure by their lustre and sparkle? Why magnetic bracelets of course! (I should point out that visually, copper bracelets and bangles have the same effect, whether they are magnetic or not.)

But what is more, the sale at Magnetic Products Store is offering discounts of up to 80%! That means you pay one-fifth of the normal price? How good is that? Bloomin’ marvellous I’d say.

So check ’em out. And hurry. Because when it’s gone, it’s gone – well maybe not. But it won’t be January for ever!
