If you find yourself on my blog, you need to know that I've not been active here in over a year. But. I decided to leave Mrs Biz Whiz up because "she" (really me) was my very first blog. Some of what's here may be helpful to you. You can find me over at Healing Rescue Dogs, and I hope you'll stop by to see what I'm doing. Continue reading

You might think that little green apples don't have much to do with exquisite, hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind jewelry. But. Don't tell Mary Anne Green that. She's got a thriving jewelry stand at the Fairport Farmer's Market. You can find her along what I call the 'back 40" aisle - the vendor stands that back up to the Fairport Credit Union's parking lot. The sign makes it easy to find her. And, she's got a group of raving fans who absolutely ADORE what she makes. Like me. And my friend who shops the market every Saturday. And many more women who wander... Continue reading

OK - I have no idea is this is divine providence or me just picking up the Sept issue of MORE magazine - which you should too. On page 190, there's an ad for a product for thinning hair. The product is called Viviscal - there's an 800 number and a web site ( and it looks like you can buy this at your nearest RiteAid. I have NO idea if it works and NO idea as to cost - and - this is not a paid endorsement. From my hands to yours....

I've been out-of-the-blogging loop myself - vacation will do that to you and thought I'd enjoy somebody else's "OMG - too much to do and where does the time go?!" You didn't disappoint me, Barb. How have I missed news about Max? Is this the second dog - the one you were about to get when I first met you here OR is this a 3rd dog? Yipes! I need to pay more attention to you or the next thing I know, you'll have a kennel filled with 'em!

I'm still exploring your blog and after reading your lovely tribute to your husband and to "the life," wanted to let you know that up until the time I was 12 years old, I thought that every family lived on a military base and that moving every four years (sometimes less than that) was typical. How my mom did this with 5 kids I'll never know. After all of these years, I miss being that Army brat.

Bless you for this gorgeous blog! I want to come and live with you. The pull at my own heart has always been to "live near - No. To live ON the water. Here in the Finger Lakes region of New York, oddly enough, the water I can walk to is the Erie Canal - not the same thing - and I'm about 20 minutes away from Lake Ontario and just under an hour from Canandaigua Lake. But. It's not the same thing as being able to wake up, look out my window and see the early morning mist rising off of the lake. Thank you for this blog. - Kathy

It's not a coincidence that as I put the final, finishing touches on a house project, that the shell of a special interest blog is almost done. Somehow, the house project: stripping 40-plus year old wallpaper off of bedroom walls before painting them and the design and initial content for my dog web site, just happened to take place almost simultaneously. Start stripping wall paper. Get free report re-configured into a PDF format and hooked into aweber. Strip some more wall paper. Think about what's going on the sidebar. Strip more wallpaper. Spend some time getting familiar with a different... Continue reading

Nice! This could be the BEST information post to cross my desk all year. Thanks for sharing and, if I can figure out the correct way to do this, can I re-post on my blog? In the meantime, I'll Twitter and Facebook this for you, Jeff. Thanks for keeping your eye out for the rest of us.
