Ronald McDonald House

Posted by on Mar 30, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

We are heading to do a dinner at the Ronald McDonald House in Southern New Jersey to cook dinner with some volunteers and to gift my books to the families who are there tonight with treatments and surgeries. Some families are there to stay long term while a family member is treated for something, and others are in and out in a night or two with return treatments and procedures that do not take too long. Regardless, every night there is a hot meal waiting for them when they return from a long day at the hospital....

Put Your Mind to It

Posted by on Mar 25, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

You can do anything you put your mind to. We all can do anything we put our minds to. It goes with the saying “Just do it.” I was a bit nervous about changing my event this year, but I had a vision. Something I did from the past was brought back to life and with the past experience, along with some old volunteers and some really hard work, it was a great idea and a great success. I had a chance to think about this past fundraiser and because of what I decided to do about a year ago and put my mind to...

Try Something New

Posted by on Mar 18, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I often blog about things I do and sometimes “stepping out of the box.” I am what I would refer to as conservatively daring, while my son, for instance, lives life to the fullest. He has pretty much tried it all: surfing, snowboarding, all kinds of sports in school etc. I prefer to be more daring in trying new foods, different travel I never had a chance to do, and things on that line. Whatever it is, I do encourage everyone to try something new. Think about something you may have wanted to do forever...

My Recent Evening of Inspiration

Posted by on Mar 11, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

After 6 years, we changed the event enough to make it noticeable. All I can say is, it worked. The venue was the same, the food was the same, and awesome, open bar, and, of course, I was still the keynote speaker. Books were available for purchase throughout the evening. We eliminated dancing but still had music. We added a big raffle of about 35 items, and then continued with a live bidding auction. Were people apprehensive, of course, but in the end, after asking them to continue trusting what I do, we came out...

Losing a Friend

Posted by on Mar 11, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I recently wrote a blog about visiting a very ill friend and how I felt after the visit. One minute we are all here and in the blink of an eye, it is our time to go. Carmen, a long time friend, has left the earth and recently given in to his illnesses. His partner took remarkable care of him, defying the doctors suggestions that months and months ago he not take him home since his care was too much for him to do on his own. Well, Mark did just that and gave Carmen lasting months of life, and I say hats off to you...
