I am new to online marketing and blogging. I have been a respiratory therapist for 20+ years. I am happily married to a trucker (not an easy life for sure). I have 4, 7 or 11 children (depends on which step children claim me, ha ha). I also have four grand sons and four (or two) granddaughters.

I enjoy riding motorcycles, although I am no longer able to operate my own. In 2011, I was ejected from my bike going about 45 miles an hour. I did what witnesses called a swan dive (very graceful, I must say). Unfortunately, I broke both my shoulders, left wrist, ribs, and spent 12 days in the hospital to get fixed back up and another 15 months of physical therapy to get my grip and my arms back.

I didn't let that stop me from riding again! I bought another Harley (her name was Ruby and I loved her dearly). She was fast and loud. Well, after my rehab time, I began working at the University of Michigan Health System and worked with ALS patients. I become close with all my patients, but one in particular. He and his wife are bikers too. So, last year on May 5th, 2013, less than two years after my first bike crash, I laid the bike down in a tight curve during a fundraising run for my buddy with ALS. Unfortunately in that accident, I suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). I have suffered ever since. I am currently on a leave of absence from work due to some focus, memory and head ache issues. I am getting better though with less stress, keeping rested, and performing brain exercises by blogging.

Another love that I have (or had) is educating myself. At the age of 50, I finally finished my BS in Public Health with a 3.98 GPA! This was a feat, because during my schooling is when I had my accidents. It took me a little longer to complete the degree, but I did it. When I attempted to return to school for my Master's degree is when my TBI symptoms returned full working toward my Masters and PhD are now out of the question.

Thus, I found myself searching the web to figure out how I could earn money from home using the internet. I came across a great video on YouTube that lead me to a great program that teaches, mentors, and offers free websites. I am learning so much. I find that I am still educating myself, but at a far lesser financial stress.

Another interest that I have is Tea...I love my tea. I will write about this love affair later. I am here to improve my writing skills and make sure that the content I have is credible and interesting. I would love to hear from you and all feedback is welcome. Please leave me a comment and I will be sure to get back to you.

Warm regards from Michigan,


Black Friday 2014
Black Friday already...seems like just yesterday we were enjoying the warm summer. Where does the time go. If you are anything like me, I am not ready for the Holiday season. But guess who is ready. Give up? All the retail stores...and I'm sure many of you are as well.…
