Dinosaurs are an invention by scientists to create revenue and a ploy to perpetuate scientists’ careers. They created the whole idea, manufactured fake bones, buried them in choice locations that agreed on the ploy for a share of the profits, then tipped off their friends on the potential “day of discovery.”
Even Carbon dating has been disproved by individuals who buried hard boiled chicken eggs then had a scientist come out and test them, with the scientist not k owing these were ordinary eggs front two weeks ago, and the scientist dated them at a million years! If you believe in Dinosaurs then you probably believe humans have walked on the moon!

Life can often come down to perspective making all the difference. How w
e see things, how we see others, can be the deciding factor between success or failure, friendship or enmity, a lost opportunity or a friend for life.
This period in my life has been crazy busy. I am moving fast in my new job, recording albums, talking with agents and publishers, performing live, writing books, running festivals and working with book cover artists. Through this growth period I have been experimenting with altering perspectives and it is changing my life!
It was exquisite and exactly what I needed. We all need to get away once in a while: Away from the hustle and bustle, the commute, the office, the job, the work, the race, and just take time to relax. Our retreat was in a beach house and it couldn’t be more perfect.
We spent our days, talking, joking, singing together, dining, exploring, enjoying nature and even fitting in time for a steam and a massage at a spa. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend everyone do it at least once a year.
I’ve been to many exotic places around the world, but I’ve also been to exotic places in America. My recent trip found me in an exotic location in America, where grapefruit and orange trees grow in public places and yield their fruit freely. Where palm trees lilt in the warm breeze even in Winter and desert flowers decorated the landscape.
Where is this, you ask? Well, it is in Tucson, Arizona. I spent warm January evenings by the pool and hot tub, with an outdoor fire, surrounded by palm trees and orange groves. The even warmer Winter days are filled with wondrous flowers and scents and crowned by stunning sunsets. I recommend everyone visit Tucson or at least somewhere in Arizona in the Winter and you’ll be warmed, amazed and refreshed.
Why is it that no one wants to take the blame these days? No one wants to admit they are wrong, say they are sorry, accept responsibility for their mistakes. What has happened to our world? Why are we so lacking in courage to admit to ourselves and to everyone else when we have erred?
Perhaps in this society that encourages failure, quitting, shirking responsibility and seeking out only what feels good, we are being brain washed into thinking not only are mistakes acceptable and avoiding consequences for them, but it is now the norm. It is time we mature and accept the responsibilities of our own failures and mistakes, admit them, and then learn from them and grow. It is only in this manner that we can become complete human beings and live the way we were meant to live. Then we can be a beacon, a lighthouse to others.
I recently participated in a fund raiser for D.A.W.N. (Domestic Abuse Women’s Network), as a referee and judge for a chili cook off. It was sponsored by W.M.F.H.A. I had a blast! I even got to wear my referee shirt and was able to be part of the judging for each category. There were some great chili recipes and I was privy to the winners of each round, including the championship!
D.A.W.N. is an amazing charity and an outstanding cause toward counseling, housing and hopefully ending domestic abuse once and for all, not just against women but against everyone. Through our effort we were able to raise $25,000.00 in charitable funds. I look forward to helping with many more charitable efforts throughout the years to help as many people as I can.
We as humans thrive on contact. We are made inside another human. We kiss and hug before we can even walk or speak. We are warm blooded creatures and write songs, books and movies about love between humans. And yet our society discourages contact. Our society wants us to have virtual friends, connect via media instead of through touch and so many of our children now are being born Autistic. These poor souls shun as much contact as possible. What a shame.
For those who prefer texting over a phone call to hear another human’s voice, who prefer video games over physical sports or interacting with humans in person, for those who prefer as little contact as possible with other humans, they have sadly become anything but human. We are made for contact with other humans and need to do so, for our physical, mental and emotional well being. Otherwise, we become aliens on our own planet.
