It’s been a busy week. Celebrated my son’s 46th birthday on
Saturday. Small gathering but a lovely one. Had a wonderful
lunch with an alumni rep from my post graduate university,
Nova Southeastern U.
Have been doing a lot of research for my S.O.B.’s now officially
known as the “Spunky Outrageous Broads.” We are starting a
bunch of teleseminars after the first of the year. So hopefully
you will be joining us!
Attended a Holiday networking session with TCI, a high level
women’s networking group and we had our official meetup group

exciting. But unless you can fit both in, you have to make the
choice. People understand there are many invites out there and
know not everyone is going to make it. I have two events myself
next week and can only make one. The first I knew about two
