The Gift of Promoting my Business

My husband promoted my business as his Christmas gift to me in 2016. It was a sweet, thoughtful gift of encouragement and hope for my best success. It was also a way to donate to the radio station we had listened to for years and participated with during events and fundraisers. The station Director attended one of the Toastmasters contests I hosted in 2012 as a local leader with the title Area Governor (now Director). I enjoyed promoting my businesses and the radio station and my gift of being the Day Sponsor for Christmas Day 2016.

Discounts for Seniors and Veterans


I just came across an article about discounts for seniors born before 1964 and for veterans, presumably of all ages. The link to the article is about a paragraph, so I am not including it. I noticed the length of the link while starting to email it to my husband and myself. We were each born a few years before 1964. An Internet search for senior discounts suffices. To all of our veterans, thank you for your service and happy upcoming Veterans Day which is less than one month away.

False Starts

Elon Musk and the SpaceX team are highly successful in their space endeavors. NASA’s history includes amazing success and “malfunction junction.”

I am certain SpaceX and NASA will continue to be successful. I am confident success and sustainability are part of my future. I am comforted by an awareness that like SpaceX needing to reschedule this test, sometimes we as individuals need to reschedule our tests and plans to move forward with our goals. Sometimes we take a little hop forwards or sideways, like Starhopper, only to discover we need fine tuning before we are completely ready. After the tune up, we will be better and stronger, fit for our goals. Godspeed SpaceX and NASA. Godspeed us.

SpaceX aborted the final launch of its shiny Starhopper rocket ship less than a second before liftoff. Elon Musk says the company will try again Tuesday. | Business Insider

Psalm 29:1-11 (excerpts)

I read the Bible sometimes. Today’s reading in The One Year Bible includes Psalm 29:1-11. This Scripture encourages and inspires me today.

Psalm 29:1-11 (excerpts):

Honor the Lord, you heavenly beings; honor the Lord for his glory and strength.

Honor the Lord for the glory of his name.

Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

The voice of the Lord echoes above the sea.

The God of glory thunders.

The Lord thunders over the mighty sea.

The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic.

The Lord rules over the floodwaters.

The Lord reigns as king forever.

The Lord gives his people strength.

The Lord blesses them with peace.

Rejoice Always! Soar High!

Promoting Author Rosemary Roosa

My husband Ed and I met author Rosemary Roosa and her husband Francisco Gonzales on Monday July 15 at the Kennedy Space Center. Rosemary Roosa is the first child of an astronaut to write a book. She was sitting at a table at the Saturn Center building at the Kennedy Space Center. She was greeting people while autographing copies of her book as people picked them up to buy. Ed and I liked Rosemary and Francisco so much we promoted her and her book to other people at the Saturn Center and later at the gift shop when she hosted the autograph session there that afternoon.
