Weather break makes life easier for stallholders

A successful day for February was reported by traders.

The weather makes all the difference to trade and the persistent cold high winds we’ve had recently have made the stallholders task almost impossible

Traders get together to make a presence on facebook!

Cottingham tv’s Work-out Guide to becoming Healthy, Wealthy and Wise in 2016

You’d better shape-up!

Make these tips your New Year’s Resolution!

Myth-buster #1: you don’t have to be wealthy to grow your wealth!

Just don’t leave your savings in a big 4  bank!

The Art (and the philosophy) of economical living: the longest journey starts with a single first step!

It’s the little and the big things that matter! Look after the pennies.. look after your health! 

We’ll start with becoming wise, as you’ve got to wise up and grasp the nettle and smell the coffee before you can begin to shape up financially – and shape-up health-wise to be able to enjoy the benefits of being in financial shape!

The world is a profoundly unfair place*, with undue rewards placed on those who can manage their finances and undue penalties placed on those who can’t!

With these few basic tips, learn how to become prosperous

learn how to live within modest and humble means!

There is a widespread belief held by Socialists that money doesn’t count, isn’t important – ask their past Chancellors! “I come from a long tradition of politicians”, one of whom recently admitted, “where they can’t and don’t add-up!”

The clock is ticking towards your retirement – act now! Take back control of your finances!

Wise-up and watch your wealth grow!

There is a widely-held belief that living maxed-out in debt is good for you! Don’t be fooled! Cut up those credit cards and stay in credit, not debt!

Make money out of the banks: don’t let the banks make money out of you!

Learn how to live more economically: don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t shop ‘till you drop on your plastic cards without being able to pay them back in a couple of months, don’t run a brand new car on credit, don’t holiday abroad on credit! Don’t over-indulge yourself on credit!

Marry the right person

– have a pre-nup!

Get your inheritance managed financially before the crunch comes!

The only winners at the end of the day are the banks, the State – and of course the lawyers! #PleaseNotThem

Don’t use the high street banks to hold your savings – they make a fortune out of the poor, the un-wise and the old!

Buy Gold to save long-term, not PEPs!

Our seats are slowly killing us!

Vehicle seats

The seat we are familiar with is also being radically improved!

The editor has a further interpretation of the sit or stand to work dilemma: he has been developing as an inventor a patented dynamic posture seating  system that allows us to maintain balance whilst sitting and keep our trunk muscles active.

The statistics are quite worrying: Americans spend over 100 hours commuting to work   every year and when they do get to the office, they spend a further 6 hrs x 5 days x 50 weeks = 1500 hours mostly sitting at screens – and several more hours per day sitting whilst watching tv!

With obesity steadily increasing, we need to seriously reconsider our lifestyles if we are going to out-live our parents in terms of life span!

Our parents led more active lives which required more physical and manual activity – but we have with the advent of automation and computing become too sedentary!
