Playing in Seattle

  On this business trip to the Seattle area, I began implementing my new guideline of doing things fun and local on each trip, with team member friends if it works, but do it anyway. With several schedule changes, neither Donna or Doris could go with me to see...

Wise Women Know Fun!

This year, for fun and my birthday month, I’m hosting a series of meet and greet, question and discussion dinners with people on my business team and people interested in natural health solutions. The first one was last night at Panera Bread in Hazel Dell, Washington....

B-Day is here!

I’ve decided to have a birthday month, in gratitude for the ride so far. I have many years of memories, lessons, experiences, and am fortunate to have many ideas, dreams, goals, projects in mind for the future decades I intend to live well. I want to use this year...

Peaches!

Just to let you know…

I am proud to be associated with the largest and rapidly growing essential oil company in the world. Due to increasingly strict FDA regulations, and the company’s intent to be upfront and law-abiding, we can no longer name brands of any sort on web sites. I’m happy to...

Glacier National Park

  Oh my goodness, this is the place to be for awe-inspiring heights and depths, water and wildlife, lodges and forests. My Montana hosts and traveling companions, Karen, Doug, and Kelsey Thurston, Mark Robison (whose sweet wife Susan stayed home), took me on a...
