Take A Walk In My Garden

In May of 2005, my soon to be very good friend landscape designer Gina Neusteter and Andres Haro owner of my weekly gardening services and so much more, changed my outdoor living space forever.  On this Wordless Wednesday, I’d like to share how my garden continues to grow.

Meet Russell Neese

I have the great fortune of belonging to a wonderful Toastmasters Club, Speakers By The Sea.  Several months ago, a new person we refer to as an “Honored Guest” came to our Wednesday, 11-12 meeting.

How Do You and I Stay Connected?

I’m asking you how you stay connected and you may say, “To what?” Good question. Connections come in all forms. Social media has changed the way we connect.  This blog is a prime example. Who ever heard of analytics?  I suppose if you have a background in engineering it may be a familiar word.  …

My Year In Review, Part 4

Here is the final installment of My Year in Review. Meet the remarkable Claire Austin. What makes her so special is how she combines her love of books along with the research of making books available specifically for very ill children.  Her charity, http://www.chla.org/literally-healing provides free books to the patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. These carefully…
