You Are What You... DRINK! :)
Mood:  quizzical
Now Playing: Day 2958-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


Your questions have been answered!

While still maintaining a 95% liquid diet... I decided to finally answer numerous questions on what kind of liquid beverages and supplemental shakeYEStoYasso_800x400_.jpgs do I consume on a daily basis. Here are a few pictures of some of My Favorite Beverages. Also recently saying, "YASS!" To the new Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt bars! With 5 to 6 grams of protein per serving, it is a definite, "YASS!"

As far as the majority of daily vitamins and minerals. It will always be a SlimFast way of life for this gal! As long as they continue making the product, this consumer will continue consuming it! Hahahaha... that just came across sounding pretty darn funny!

For a few individuals over a decade ago that told me drinking SlimFast as long as I have would literally destroy my kidneys and other GI organs... I beg to differ. Per professionals, SlimFast will not destroy your GI organs nor kidneys. It is a very healthy alternative to those who suffer from GI distress, Gastroparesis or any other medical condition that does not allow one to consume a normal daily (solid food) diet. 

Huge props to the makers of SlimFast on their new Advanced Energy Shake! This is the very first time that I have actually found a supplemental shake that really gives me some serious ENERGY! My version of the new SlimFast Advanced Energy Shake is watered down a bit with decaf coffee and a few other liquid vitamins, but HEY that's me... different!

They say, that you are what you eat. Then again, maybe some of us are what we... drink.

Sometimes... You Have To Let History Speak For Itself... Show Itself On Its OWN Time
Mood:  special
Now Playing: Day 2957-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


My mood for this entire experience as clearly it shows on the upper portion of this blog... special.

Who wouldn't feel special to be able to connect with those from the past. Those whom may just needed a bit of company. Others whom may have just felt alone and excited to be able as well to connect with the living.

This is one of the best captures on a plain cell phone camera that we were fortunate to had caught. All while joking around, playing around, taking selfies. I remember just saying out loud in the dark parlor room with loads of energy surrounding us, "Would you like to join in on a few photos? We call them in our day and age... selfies." Of course, who in their right mind would anticipate scrolling back through photo after photo and literally catch someone standing right behind you? No way... not us... not I.

We were also fortunate to be able to send everything in real time, as it happened, to the current owners. A 4th generation family of farmers with what definitely appears to be a very active house. The energy and spirit of the old historic farmhouse... still remains. The owners were nothing but shocked at the photos, videos and even audio of an elderly woman sighing as Eric attempted to play the piano. Hahahahaha! One audio in the basement of whom or whatever it was... later we realized it was a growl of some sorts. This information soon made sense after the owner informing us of a story with both of her children at a very young age, both separately drawling an image of what they had seen in the basement. Both siblings had no idea what the other was seeing, whether alone drawling on two different, yet separate occasions. I then began to ask if it was a male presence? I was then only told... not human, all I want to say, hint. We did pick up on a photo taken in the basement, pure darkness, no flash, yet the same piercing eyes were clearly seen in the basement. Do I believe in good spirits? Yes. Do I believe in bad spirits? Well... I know they do exist. But I also believe that they know those whom hold a special gift. They... it... could not harm myself. They could not harm us. But I advised Eric that we leave it alone and not go back in the basement. Leaving whatever alone as I clearly made it known to whatever it was with piercing eyes in the photo. Could turning a happy farmhouse into a dark, Halloween theatrics of sorts stir up this negative energy? I am sure it didn't help after they had to quickly shut down the attraction due to volunteers expressing fearful stories of things happening to them. Yet, were afraid to tell the owner in fear they would not be believed or as if they were lying. That haunted house then got permanently shut down. I believe it to be the proper response, but as well I also believe the Halloween decorations need to be taken down. The house needs to somehow be brought back to its original glory.

Yes, of course, we sage after vacating each and every historic property. Do I watch Ghost Adventurers? I used to watch it, but my opinion of provocation of negative energy or whatever you may like to call it... is not okay. It is also not necessary if you have that same special gift that I believe some of those on the show may have as an adult. Also the show is a huge production, backed by an even bigger production company. To the naked eye... one can't make up things like what we have experienced and visual seen, felt. You also can not alter ITC equipment. Unless you are the software developer and literally standing there, altering equipment on the spot. As with the owners child, now an adult. They began their gift at a very young age, with first a negative experience. After connecting with others who also share the same special gift. To me, it seems we all had to go through some really negative experience first, before then being gifted our very special gift to connect on a far happier, positive note. Well... that's just my opinion based off of the same stories from others over the years, with the exact same experience.

I can remember when my grandmother passed and being at home in the evening. Feeling and seeing someone literally sit on the edge of my bed, gently as if brushing my hair. My grandmother did that for me as a young child. I also had her favorite recliner in my bedroom. That same recliner would literally rock on its own, up until after her funeral. Odd things that also could not be explained happened with a music box that she had given me on one of my birthdays. It was then I knew... I had a special gift. I always had a special gift, but as a child I was afraid to tell anyone. Especially, my parents. But to the current third generation family who own this historic barnhouse, her adult child now has the same special gift. Their story... the same as mine. It's nice to be able to come across another special soul, one who also has the ability to connect.  

That was the only negative experience we encountered during our overnight stay in the old historic farmhouse.

Onto far more positive, happier times during a very cold evening into the early morning hours. We not only didn't have electric, but in the central area of the house. There was also no heat. Thankfully we got a heads-up on no heat within the barnhouse in advance, so we triple layered our clothing! That included two coats, three pairs of socks and two pairs of gloves! Hehehehehehe!

The most energy and activity seemed to be isolated within the first floor. In between the living room and parlor room. An old piano, a mystery piano of sorts was the center of most odd, yet amazing things that happened during our stay. I asked the current owners, literally on four separate occasions, on who owned the piano. I never received an answer, so I will leave that question as it seems to remain... in the dark. Eric had a blast trying to remember how to play a piano. I was far too busy just standing, then taking a seat behind him with all the equipment running. Little did I know just how active the room would become, so full and alive of energy! Those who we felt slowly make their presence known as they welcomed us into a day and age where playing the piano was fun... a huge celebration among family!

The original staircase and old chandelier mesmerized me... ever since our very first walk through of the old barnhouse property. It's no wonder since it seems others whom still reside there feel the exact same way. A most favorite part of the house that still remains. Being in the parlor room, felt as if time stood still, frozen in the moment of years gone by. I believe this part of the house is also fondly adored and still loved by the same female presence that we felt and seen during our stay. We both felt welcomed, although it didn't start that way. I think you first need to just be quiet and listen to the historic property. Sometimes... the best way to connect is just to start off saying nothing at all. Let history and the home speak for itself. Always has... always will.

We were never afraid of the darkness of the house. After awhile we also forgot all about the Halloween decorations. We solely concentrated on making the parlor room and living room our main focus. To us, that seemed to be the area with all the energy. We never felt alone... only welcomed. We laughed, smiled and sang out of tune songs. Hahahaha! All while being in the darkness and quite content energy that surrounded us . It wasn't until then that the house came alive with activity. It never stopped. We were the ones who actually had to stop the visit due to the time that literally flew by! It was, once again, a sad time to leave. It felt as whomever was still residing in the old historic barnhouse, only wanted some company. They were not only attached to the piano that Eric so desperately tried to play on a good key... hehehehehehe! But as well they resided in the one area of the old barnhouse that still somewhat remained. A beautiful, yet now... old staircase, chandelier, fireplace and other fond memories for those whom have departed, but still visit.

I believe that somehow, after we pass our spirit comes back to those places that brought us such happiness. Myself and Eric felt this way with whomever was with us during our stay. One selfie, literally distorted as if the female presence really did want to join us for some photo fun! We were not using any flash, only the beams of the moon peaking into the parlor room windows. If you ask me... its all pretty darn amazing!

Once we realized how late it was... we began getting all of our stuff together. As we one-by-one began shutting down the equipment. I then began to thank whomever was present with us during our stay and thanking them for such fun we had as their visitors. Eric pulled both piano stools back under the keyboard and said, "Goodbye and thanks for playing the piano with me!" At that same moment, we caught this still image of not one, but two... one waving goodbye back at Eric with a beautiful beaming ray of light... the other peeking to the right of the screen, which was behind an open wall next to the piano.

At the end of the day... I would like to believe that after we pass from this life... we will then move on to the next. A far better, happier place of pure peace, high above the clouds. They call it... Heaven.

To the current owners of this historic gem, deep in the heart of the country. Thank you for opening your home to us. Thank you for sharing as well your gift and ability to connect. We are looking forward to meeting soon!

A Gem Of An Angry, Disappointed, Scared, Bashful... Yet PLAYFUL Overnight At This Historic Location...
Mood:  d'oh
Now Playing: Day 2956-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


After a quick walk through from one of the family members. We were then told to have a 'safe' night. We would then be on our own for the remainder of the evening into the early morning hours. This is typically how each historic location begins... a quick walk through around the property to quickly, yet somehow, get our bearings. This particular old farmhouse didn't have much, if any electricity, working lights or much of anything else. We also did not have access to a restroom so thankfully there were a few 24-hour truck stops nearby!

 I was warned a few days upon arrival, that not only did the farmhouse get stripped away from all of its original contents. But as well, it was used years ago as a haunted house to raise funds for a girls-boys after school program. What we didn't realize was that all of the haunted house contents, decorations, etc still remained through out the house. We also didn't realize that when the family member said, "Stripped of it's contents," that they literally meant right down to most of its walls and even studs. 

Talking about a one-of-a-kind overnight visit that upon arrival... SCREAMED of all sorts of energy! Some good... some not so good. 

If I could only read Eric's mind as we were quickly given a speed tour, one time around the many mazes and halls within the huge old historic barnhouse. I believe that I could hear, or any other energy present inside the house could hear, Eric's ever-so-quickly rising blood pressure! Hahahahaha! Eric looked like he had already saw a ghost, yet even two flashlights could barely light up the various rooms and even darker basement and attic. As for myself... nothing scares me, surprises me or anything else of the matter within these old historic buildings. Yes... anything is possible. Even as a prior haunted house? Well... I have my opinions on that very matter... a most beautiful old, historic gem located deep in the country. Yet in my opinion, sadly stripped away of its original historic charm. However, some of the homes original pieces and architecture still remains. This is one of the original wood boards that can still be seen up in the rafters, located in the attic that was signed by its original owner who built the home back in 1898, Dr. Bradley.

Back to the beginning of our overnight...

This is pretty much what a typical central room looks like for us when needing to find a place to sit our belongings and ITC equipment. It's not much, but for us it will do. Notice the super dark black paint outside of the room. Yep... that theme was through out the entire farmhouse. Talking about making things super difficult to see! Even with two flashlights! The only electric available or any working outlets was located in the central room. But of course, regardless of how many batteries we bring or how fully charged each piece of equipment may be upon arrival... anything can happen. This time it was a very first for us as one by one, each piece of equipment as well as my personal cell phone... somehow... magically drained all on its own. It not only happened once, but four times with my cell phone. We spent quite a few breaks outside of the house, while patiently waiting for my cell phone to recharge using our car adapter. Crazy or mere coincidence?

I like to call it, flat out... unexplainable.

This was only the beginning to one very interesting historic overnight! That strong feeling as if someone was constantly looking over my shoulder remained most of the night. So much as if to literally turn off my cell phone and other equipment. Not only did it not make any sense, but it got to be downright frustrating. Yet somehow... I strongly sensed this to be the result of a female presence that only remained within the parlor area of the old house. An area that still holds quite a few pieces of its original walls, chandelier, stairwell and other contents. That feeling as if you most definitely were not alone remained only within that particular area of the house. Strange? I think not as the remainder of our night into the early morning hours picked up the same female presence not only on my cell phone camera. But also on video while appearing to sway back and forth, sitting next to Eric while he attempted to play the piano. Unfortunately, the software for this blog does not have the capability to play audio or video. This photo below shows someone or something clearly sitting or laying in front of an old fireplace located within the downstairs living room. Right next to the parlor room. If you zoom into the area in front of the white rocking chair and fireplace, there appears to be whatever you may want to call it sitting or laying. There was absolutely nothing in front of that rocking chair or fireplace as the current owners can verify. This isn't the first, but one of many findings caught on camera, audio and video through out our overnight stay within the old historic farmhouse. The current owners take on what we were able to provide them during our overnight stay at their historic property... "Unreal! Crazy!" We were asked by the owners if we would come back to their property when it gets a bit warmer, later this spring, so they can go through the property with us. What I didn't know was that someone else in the current generation of family also has a gift. A gift that began as a young child. The ability as well to connect. It will prove to be a very interesting second overnight stay at their property!

I will be uploading other photos, videos and audio on our new website, Podcast-Blogcast at, "Our Crazy Little Life." While I continue sifting and downloading all of our photos, audio and videos. This overnight will continue onto tomorrows blog.

We Have Officially... ARRIVED!
Mood:  energetic
Now Playing: Day 2955-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


I am super excited about this evening!

It is the very first time of this new year that we will be visiting a gem of a beauty in Kentucky! An old historic barnhouse that was built by a very reputable doctor back in 1898. 

This hidden little country gem has been doing more than talking lately with its current owners. A 4th generation family of farmers turned from skeptics... to true believers! These are the times that I am truly thankful and forever blessed to tap into my special gift. The ability to connect with others from the past.

Over the past four days while speaking with the current owners. We agreed to meet at the property this evening after they finished cleaning up from an annual fundraiser. A new building designed to sustain itself, eco friendly and large enough to accommodate those who hold fundraisers, weddings and other conventions through out the year. The new building sits much further back on the property. Far away from the old historic barnhouse.

Talking about a welcoming site of all sorts of pure darkness that surrounds the remainder of the huge property! An old barnhouse sitting on top of the hill waiting for our arrival. It's almost as if the barnhouse was waving to greet us as we slowly made our way up the windy road.

After a quick walk through from one of the family members. We will then be on our own for the remainder of the evening into the early morning hours. We really don't make any specific time limits on how long we are at each individual historic location. It really just depends on what we find and sometimes that can be within a few hours or up to several hours.

Mentally, I am open to anything. Because in all actuality... anything is possible when overnighting at any given historic property.

More soon to follow!

You can stay in touch with us including many other photos and videos of our latest historic adventurer on our Podcast-Blogcast website:

Have Faith In Yourself... BELIEVE In YOU! :)
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: Day 2954-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


So much for all the anticipated snow... but HELLO to our little ice storm that arrived late last night here in the country!

It sure made for some really pretty ice sculptures on a few of our landscaping decorations... b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

Poor Babyblue was already dressed and ready to hit the trails along the river. Ice and a far too energetic puppy could had made for one very disastrous walk. So instead her and Snoreo spent the day indoors driving Eric nuts with their rambunctious selves. Hehehehehehe!

In less than a mere two months, we have already accomplished a great deal in and out of the house. Thank goodness for the bank finally correcting their errors with regards to inaccurate credit reporting to all three credit bureaus. The bank that holds our VA mortgage loan failed Eric miserably in making sure that all payments were being reported accurately and on a timely basis. It's really quite discouraging when having to had spent so much time, unnecessary wasted time, trying to solve such an easy fix on the banks end. Instead, we ended up having to do their work for them, going above and beyond to get the issue resolved. But at least this week we finally got our silver lining! Every single error has finally been corrected and now accurately reported with all three major credit bureaus. Our home would had already been sold to a couple that only lives a mere 5-minute drive down the road. If it weren't for the lack of importance on the banks end in fixing their credit reporting mistakes with regards to not accurately reporting mortgage payments. Such a huge mistake, but we are so glad to finally have everything resolved!

Time to 'move' on... literally.

As far as health matters on my end. I have yet to reap any benefits from the latest round of experimental medication. After a call from my specialists office this afternoon regarding any changes since taking the medication. I was advised to disregard taking it three days before my scheduled surgery later next week. At least I have made a full recovery from skin cancer surgery. So far, the lesions have not reappeared and the area where both were removed along with the surrounding skin is healing very nicely! I still have a second round of surgery to replace bone that had to be removed in the lower portion of my jaw. However, my surgeon wants to make sure that the area first has a chance to fully heal. I was told towards the middle of summer. A break will be nice since I still have another surgery yet to face next week.

In the meantime... this week is all about finding ways to laugh, smile and embrace a little bit of fun in our life!

Life stops for no one. Life does not stop just because you are sick. So why stop living your life when there are so many ways to keep moving forward. We all have those dreams, passions and desires in life. But it's up to YOU in order to go out and live that dream, passion and true desires that bring out the best YOU possible! Never give up, never give in, anything is possible... all you have to do is one thing...

Have faith in yourself... BELIEVE in YOU!

WE'RE... B-A-C-K... Time To Hit The Road For Another HISTORIC Adventurer!
Mood:  celebratory
Now Playing: Day 2953-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


Talking about keeping busy before surgery!

There is no better way in my book to stay busy than to be offered by a private owner to check out their historic property. An old historic, 3rd generation farmhouse built in 1898. NO WAY was this gal going to turn down an amazing chance to investigate another historic gem of a property!

Keeping my mind and body busy before surgery... CHECK-CHECK!!

This historic property investigation has been in the making over the past four days. I have been in contact, back and forth via online and telephone between the current generation who owns the historic gem of a farmhouse located in Kentucky as well as the grounds keeper. The property has been kept closed and winterized for several months after what the current owners, a 3rd generation family believe is not one, but several spirits that have taken over the farmhouse. I did ask what they believe might had caused a shift in the homes environment, so to speak. I was told that after their Dad, Grandfather had passed and they began cleaning out all the contents of the old farmhouse. It was then that things took a very sudden turn and not always in a good way. Not only did the entire family used to be skeptics. But it was only until after cleaning out the farmhouse of it's entire contents did they then realize they were not alone.

I always inform private residential owners as well as those who are owners of historical sites... the less information you give me... the better.

I like to go into an old historic property with the least amount of history as possible. I don't want to assume anything that I was told as maybe my brain is seeing or sensing the same information given to me prior to arriving. Myself and Eric have visited many historical sites over the years. Doing so with the least amount of history of the location as possible. Just the standard walk-through as we will be given later this week by one of the family members who took over the historic family farmhouse. We were also asked to please not list the name or exact location of the historic farmhouse due to the family still using parts of the property for very well known fundraisers that are held through out the year. They believe that the skeptics might poke light or make fun of what they now firmly believe as those who reside, spiritually, in the historic home. However, we were given their blessing to document and share our findings. The family was then given the links to this blog and our new Podcast-Blogcast website.

An Indian Chief bigger than life, several spirits, some playful... others not. I also believe that it could very well be possible to connect with their Dad, Grandfather whom recently passed away and handed down the historic farmhouse to the next generation. I believe that anything... is possible.

There will always be skeptics, those who don't believe in the afterlife and that is fine. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions. But when it comes to an entire family of skeptics, that are now believers due to first hand experiences, even so much as of documenting full apparitions walking across the living room... well... it's really hard not to believe. Anything... is absolutely... possible. Even in the afterlife.

I am beyond ecstatic to be able to share our first new historic adventurer of the year with everyone on our new Podcast-Blogcast website! So much more soon to follow as well on prior trips visiting some of the most impressive, yet historically b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l buildings and private residential locations. We are already scheduled for another private residential visit with an owner who has a very playful spirit that has been residing in their home for years. A secluded property right outside of West Chester, Ohio. More of that and this week's historic property visit soon to follow!

Don't forget to check out today's Podcast-Blogcast at:

 "Our Crazy Little Life"

We will be sharing video footage of our most memorable connection. An old historic bed-and-breakfast that we visited last year with a spirit whom refused to share their bed.

Rice Krispy Treats... Take 2!
Mood:  d'oh
Now Playing: Day 2952-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


You know, this gal can cook with the best of them!

However... when it came down to my first attempt last month of making Rice Krispy Treats... it was truly an epic fail.

How in the world can one create unique recipes that always end up tasting scrumptiously amazing! Even so much as my very first one-of-a-kind holiday fruitcake. My very first fruitcake that literally just fell right out of the bundt cake pan. Yet... I can't even follow a simple recipe for Rice Krispy Treats that actually turn out to taste... just like Rice Krispy Treats?.

Hmmmm... time for a do-over! Rice Krispy Treats... take 2!

Once again, of course I didn't really follow the recipe on the back of the Rice Krispy cereal box. BAH! I never did like following recipes and would always end up finding my own take on the same ole recipe. But with a twist! I personally do not like using a whole lot of butter. What I do use is not actual butter, but an organic-vegetarian imitation butter. It tastes a bit different, but in a far better way! Not as heavy, pretty light with a really clean buttery taste. It also melts a lot quicker than regular better and with zero lumps. Perfect for my second attempt at making Rice Krispy Treats!

Low... and... slow... making sure not to rush melting the marshmallows and three tablespoons of butter in a very large cooking pot. They say to cook on a medium setting, but I opted for the low-setting this second time around. 

So far... looking pretty good!

As far as my new cooking assistants? Well let's just say that today they decided to just sit back, watch and take notes. Hehehehehehe! Papa & Big LOVE kitty were the best cooking assistants on their bestest behavior!

My first attempt with mixing the Rice Krispy cereal once the marshmallows were 'almost' completed melted should had been my first hint. This time around, I made sure that every single marshmallow was completely melted, along with the butter. Nice and smooth! Next step was removing the large cooking pot off of the burner and slowly stirring in all of the Rice Krispy cereal at once, not one cup at a time.

Five-minutes off of the burner and then back on a low-heat setting for another 5 minutes. Stirring enough to make sure that the mixture did not stick to the edges. I removed the mixture off of the burner for the final time and then used parchment paper to line a large glass cake dish... not butter as instructed on the recipe. Really, the trick to having Rice Krispy Treats turn out their absolute best is making sure that the Rice Krispy's have enough time to cool off in the marshmallow and butter mixture. This was the difference that did the trick for me, the second time around!

Some folks like their Rice Krispy Treats crunchy and a bit firm. Then others... like myself and Eric can remember growing up and enjoying the really soft and gooey Rice Krispy Treats that literally melt in your mouth!

Sometimes it just takes a second-time-around for a recipe to turn out PERFECTO!

 Like my do-over that turned out this second time around to be a DO-right on a very classic, ooey, gooey, marshmallowy heavenly dish of Rice Krispy treats... YUMMY!

Well... Looks Like A Little Someone Took Over Super Bowl Sunday! :)
Mood:  happy
Now Playing: Day 2951-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


What a great way to kick off Super  Bowl Sunday!

While other folks are out celebrating with huge festivities, lots of food and plenty of beer... not I.

This evening was a wonderful opportunity to bundle up as if one was heading out to hike the great Antarctic! Time to hit the walking trails along the river! There is always something quite magical about the energy along the river... even enjoying the very first snowflakes gently falling from the sky as I came back home, peacefully content.

Eric had planned on watching the Super Bowl, however, Babyblue had other plans in mind while claiming the television remote.


Hehehehehehe! I mean come on now... who could say no to such a cutie patootie! With her super comfy winter sweater on and a square stuffed animal friend in hand (paw), Babyblue enjoyed her very first Puppy Bowl! Of course, Snoreo was close by... however out of embarrassment of watching the puppy bowl, he quickly hid from the camera lens. Hehehehehehe!

Life... it truly, undeniably, absolutely is... the little things that bring the most joy to my heart~

**Join us for Babyblue's first Puppy Bowl video on our Podcast-Blogcast... Our Crazy Little Life**

Now Playing: Day 2950-Chapter 3... Happiness~My Silver Lining


Talking about sweaty palms!

It sure isn't my first rodeo launching a new website. But I sure didn't expect to hit as many glitches in such a short amount of time. Finally... the website is now up and running, yet, far from complete. It's only the beginning of something far bigger and super EXCITING!

What hasn't been exciting over the past 24-hours is the new medication. Another new experimental, therapeutic medication that I will be taking over the next few weeks. At least up until my scheduled surgery date. I really didn't want to start another new drug, especially anything that is still in the experimental phase of sorts. But somehow, someway, I found the courage within and decided to give the medication a try late yesterday evening. The first initial hit with side effects began early this morning. But as always, I once again found my strength within and pushed through the discomfort. This gal has lots on her full plate and not everything is medical related. There is still a really super exciting production in the works which will pick up later this spring. When you have a really amazing idea and a really compassionate, beyond understanding producer, anything and everything is possible! Even... while still battling the medical demons within.

Life doesn't stop, just because your sick. No way. No how!

A little sneak peak on a new restaurant concept that is sure to bring lots of smiles and sheer delight! You know those really vivid dreams... the ones where you wake up and remember every single little detail. The really big dreams in full color! I had a dream many months ago. A very vivid dream, in color, that led me to reach out to an investor. That same dream also had me realizing another goal of mine as I represented myself and finally acquired a temporary work permit while still fighting my way to one day also... embrace a cure. It may have taken me awhile to get through the medical hurdles so I could continue pushing forward, onward and one day soon... realize that dream. A really amazing dream!

Right now, I have other important items on the ole agenda. Surgery in less than 3 weeks, followed by 15-weeks of important outpatient therapy. I plan on multi-tasking to the highest of my ability! Even while recovering from surgery and yes... even during outpatient therapy. There really is nothing one can't accomplish with a laptop in hand and a dream in their heart~

YOU have all the reasons in the world to achieve your grandest dreams.
