Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Something has come up and it may put some of our projects on hold for about six months, or so! What could come up to make us give up our goals/plans for 2009? Umm...how about being awarded The Best Job In The World, the Island Reef Job! Australia is doing some major tourism marketing for their lovely Paradise Island. For six months an individual will live in a 3-bedroom home, comb the beach, blog about the experience, do some video blogging, respond to interviewers, feed fish, and just basically live a life in Paradise!!?

To live this dream life, you'll be awarded $105,000 USD and be flown to the island!

We're going for it! Why not? I'd love to help Australia increase recognition of it's beautiful island and tourist destination. Now's the ideal time for us to take on such an adveture in Paradise! What's cool is that last night I dreamed we were headed out swimming. I then turned to Jim and KDcat, disappointed, and said: "I forgot! I don't have a swimsuit." Then the first thing I saw on the computer this morning was the announcement about this dream job on Paradise Island. ?

We'll still follow through with our projects for the raw food community, but they may be put on hold for a little while. Imagine the coverage of something like this---I'm sure the beauty of raw foods will slip in here and there, to educate the masses!

Wish us luck!!!

p.s. If you missed our post about our grand plans for 2009, please check it out!

G'day mates!

Wow, I'd trade life in an RV for life Down Under too. Sounds like Paradise to me. :D

They've had such an overwhelming response to the Best Job in the World, that their website has crashed repeatedly. Good news for you, if you've already downloaded the application.

Best of Luck! Keep us posted.

xo!

Yes, it's been down a lot! However, we were able to capture a lot of the
info in bits and pieces. We're preparing our entries (one for each of
us--two chances at the big prize!) and will send them in as soon as
they're ready!!

Woo Hoo!!! Life on an island!!!!!

Thanks for wishing us luck!

Lots of love to you,

Wouldn't this be the opportunity of a lifetime? My kids would flip out if we were in a position to do something like this. I am sending all my very best energy in your direction and have fingers crossed too. When will they announce the winner?

Thanks, Penni!

It's a real long-shot, but since it's something we could easily do we
figured we'd give it a try. Thanks for the positive energy in our
direction for this (and for your crossed fingers, too!)!

It's a long process, so we won't know anything for months. We'll just
continue with our original plans/goals after submitting the application.
If we are approached as one of the finalists, we'll be super surprised and
excited!!

You can come and stay with me on the island if I win!!!

Lots of love to you,

Wendi

I've checked on here sometimes but haven't really posted yet.
I saw the info on that job yesterday and would love to go for it, except I am finally in a place in my job/career I like and couldn't pick up for 6 months(2 yes, not 6).

I think it is a great chance and wish you the best of luck in getting a shot at it!!Je
