The Week That Was . . .


December 3, 2015

Another week, another mass shooting. It is becoming a common place headline. I’m not trying to be flippant here–not by any means. I think it is so sad that the ‘free’ world-mainly our US brothers and sisters are so stuck in their ‘rights’ that they cannot see that the rights of others are being violated because they continue to believe their rights are more fundamental and important to their freedom. Wow–now I’m confused. So sad that innocents have to die to satisfy the outdated and misguided wants of others. I think the old saying goes–‘violence begets violence’–so true.

Here’s what’s going on in my world and I hope that all who read this this week are having and will continue to have safe and productive days and nights.

An Independent book store is carrying my books now

I’m excited to report that Caversham Book Sellers from Toronto have agreed to carry my books on their shelves. This is a store that services many of the Uof T student body, they have been doing business for many years in the city and have a great reputation for providing quality titles especially in the mental health field. I feel very honored to have my book in the shop and look forward to being with them for a good length of time. Thanks again to Caversham. If you are interested in some of the other titles they offer go to their web site at


Christmas IS coming–what to give–Hmmmm?

When in doubt always think about the gift of books. They are wonderful gifts that keep on giving long after the occasion has passed. The really nice thing about books as gifts is that they can be passed along to others who may be sharing your path with you for awhile. You may give it to someone who is only here for a bit and yet your book  could end up in Brazil or Africa some where. How amazing is that?


The affiliate program is still happening

Still working the kinks out of the affiliate program which is essentially a program by which people who visit me on my site have access to products and programs of other professionals who offer any number of helpful, informative and interesting ideas designed to promote an enjoyable and less stressful way of life for instance or may provide helpful tips to parents who are single moms or dads who are looking for help to keep a balance in their lives. Stay tuned I promise it will happen for all to benefit.


A Helpful Parenting Tip

Parents–you need to learn how to listen. Don’t be so quick to judge and to interrupt what your kids are telling you. Just listen and give them a forum. They will tell you all kinds of things if you let them. Believe me-you want this to happen. It is how you stay in touch with the fast changing world your kids face every day.


My Video choice this week–from Chriss Angel

Be prepared to be astonished. Even though we KNOW that this isn’t real you’ll will still marvel at how he did this. For me it says that no matter what you think you see it may not always be the truth.
