  1. I think you should take your own advice and do something good for you today. You are such a giving lady!


    • Dear Sharon, You are very sweet. You made me smile. I am doing something good for me today. I’m writing you. I’m going to get my hair washed and styled at Famous Hair salon. I’m also going to open a new bank account.

  2. Joan,

    Thank you so much! Have a very happy birthday. I am glad to hear you are going to pamper yourself a bit. Enjoy… You deserve it! I will be in touch



    • Dear Elaine,
      You’re welcome My birthday was super-fantastic. I enjoyed it very much. I took a bubble bath early in the morning. Went to a movie to see “New Year’s Eve,” and cooked my favorite spaghetti for supper. I received birthday cards in the mail and loads of fun Birthday Wishes on line. It can’t get much better than that! Thanks for your good wishes. I look forward to reading your pitch and first page!

    Go for it!
