Second Hand Smoke – A Solution

January 12, 2010 At Home

Fighting a neighbor’s poisonous secondhand smoke can prove a double nightmare in condos, apartment houses or co-ops. Association boards, property managers and building owners typically refuse to intervene – and worse. The secondhand smoke victim is often denigrated by board members, attorneys, fellow neighbors and by the smoker(s). Taking the matter to court is a […]

I am a mom of three in the LA area. My husband spent most of 2008 out of work as a freelance video game writer. He nailed a contract through next January! Yay! Then I got laid off. Boo! In my attempts to not sit around and suck eggs, I’ve called on the memories of […]

January 14, 2009 At Home

Our family, when faced with another family’s misfortune, offers food and comfort; for example: When a friend who is the only income-earner for his family was laid off, my family made lasagna for their family – we took over 2 large pans that they could eat when they chose, or freeze.  We have also shared […]

January 14, 2009 At Home

Around a kitchen table in our homes, facing bleak times, my three friends and I brainstormed ways to drag ourselves out of debt, find new jobs, overcome obstacles and turn survive into thrive. As word got out about our kitchen table coaching sessions, we were asked to speak to women’s groups and other women encouraged us […]

In Petaluma, California there is a movement of outreach to the community.  As a way to alleviate fear of your own economic woes, reach into your community doing what you love to do and help someone else less fortunate than yourself.   Specifically what we are doing is teaming up to help women in the local […]

Do Something Nice For Others

January 14, 2009 At Home

I have a friend who is virtually alone suffering from severe cancer.  Every morning I try to send her a brief “cheer leading” email, encouraging her to hang in there. Every year I select a “special friend” for an “extended holiday treat.”   This “treat” happens to be a six month fun “yard sale” delivered to […]

Gratitude Gatherings

January 14, 2009 At Home

I had gatherings at my home for ladies in the community. I did it because I was new to the area and needed some socialization. I asked everybody to bring something for show and tell – a great conversation starter – my favorite was Rose and the hanky she received from her idol Bing Crosby. […]
