Yes, We Can

Special Edition

Dear Parler Paris Reader,

Ten days to go and counting…till 2009…a new and brighter year, a new man in the White House, a new outlook on life, a new catch phrase: “Yes, we can.”

If you’re like me, then you’re tired of the ‘doom and gloom’ conversation. Almost every story I hear these days is about ‘loss’ — loss of investments, loss of business, loss of faith, loss of something we had and cherished.

It’s all just a ‘wake-up call’…an awakening to how easy it is to lose those ‘things’ precious to us, and an awakening to what really is and should be precious to us. This time of crisis is surely going to turn our heads to see a different point of view on life, our health, our wealth and our well-being.

Today’s Special Edition is just a ‘wake-up call’ — a wake up to some of the special offers and savings you can take advantage of to help brighten your outlook for the Holiday Season and for the coming year.

If you’re not interested, just delete this message. But, if you believe “Yes, we can” and what you want is a boost of ‘positive outlook,’ then scroll down for all the great savings and announcements that will have you sailing into 2009 on a silver cloud!

A la prochaine…

Take Advantage of the New Low Interest Rates

If it’s a new mortgage, then now is a perfect moment to take advantage of lower interest rates!

Crédit Foncier is offering 3, 5 and 25 year fixed rate loans as low as 4.95%!

Banque Patrimoine et Immobilier is offering 5 to 18 year fixed rate loans for the first year at 4.6% and 19 to 25 year fixed rate loans for the first year at 4.75%, plus a 5 year fixed rate of 4.99% then reset every 5 years!

You can refinance an existing property and can even apply for a larger amount for a longer term. Although there are usually Notaire fees payable on securing a new mortgage on a property, often, the charges can be absorbed into the loan itself.

And if you already own property in France, why not release equity from your current property to purchase another one?

For more information and to apply for a low interest mortgage in France, contact John Rule, Mortgage Manager, www.FrenchPropertyLoan.com, email loan@adrianleeds.com

Sexy. The word itself has become crass, commercial and overused. But authentic sexy is all about getting switched on. And if you switch on your erotic energy, you can actually turn on your life.

No matter your marital status, age, body shape or busy schedule, you can access your erotic energy. Victoria is going to teach you how. She
will offer tips and suggestions as to how to live your Joy of Sex-y. She’ll also offer inside scoop as to what men really think and what they want.

Bring your questions. Get some answers. Come on. You know you want to!


Spend a captivating few hours of fun, friendly and quite lively discussion with Pleasure Coach, Victoria Strong, CSB (Certified Sexological Bodyworker.) Living in the erotically charged French culture has fundamentally changed ex-New Yorker Victoria — so much so that she left behind a successful career in television to work with the message of the power of sexual well-being. Divine Feminine Touch is her pleasure coaching service which helps men, women and couples optimize their vital life force (erotic energy) through increased pleasure.
