The Tush and the Too Small Toilet

CARLISLE & MENAUL NE--I was walking by the store next to Cost Plus when I saw this big white thing gleaming through the window. "Hey, a new sports car from the Italians," I thought. Well, it turned out to be a large extremely large toilet.

It was in a store that hasn't actually opened yet, but they invited me in anyway. They said this model is for "big people." If you think I am going to insert some kind of smart-ass remark here you're crazy. In fact, some toilets DO seem a little small...even for me...and I am half-assed...just ask anybody.

The toilet is made by the Great John Toilet Co. And I can think of a lot of potential users besides the "ample bottomed." What about tall people? What about guys with just bad aim? Or lots of male equipment? Or dogs with big heads? Or maybe even a too-big bathroom...lots of new houses have rooms too big for normal stuff.

The only disadvantages to it as far as I can tell would be to those who drink too much, get sick, and have to "ride the porcelain bus." Or "hug the white altar" they say. But even there, it might be possible to curl up on it.

But the absolute CRAZIEST part is this: they swear it only uses 1.4 gallons of water! So says Julian Rivera of Golden Eagle Design.
Their showroom opens October 1st. But the door is open now.

I often think of the Internet as the a wonderful oportunity to change one's career. The oportunities are countless and becoming an Internet Marketer can be very rewarding. Here is my story with your permission.

My name is Robert Shields and at the age of 69 years, I have been retired from full time work for four years.

I was, and still think of myself as, a Hypnotherapist. I trained literally hundreds of Hypnotherapists through my College before retirement and decided to go that one step further before I 'popped my glogs' (expired:).

So in order to help as many people as possible, I put what used to be my live course into an e-book to train others like my self.

The spin off to all this is that those whom I have trained number more than 1600 and about half of them are now in practice. This means that I am reaching thousands more people through them and hopefully, they are receiving the help they need.

I tell you all this because anyone can do what I have done. When you retire you take with you a wealth of knowledge that could, and should, be shared with others.

This is how mankind progresses.

If you would like to see what I mean, pop over to my web site at:

You may get inspired and just like me, your retirement will be a happy one.
