Things to Teach Our Children

Things to teach our children:

  • Winning/beating someone in a lower skill level is not winning. It is a sissy thing to do. Strive for higher goals not the easy win.
  • Winning is not everything.
  • Life is not fair so learn from your experiences.
  • Even when things suck know that you’ve done your best.
  • Some people have bad morals and values and you have to deal with it because THEY are not going to change. You have to stand by what is right.
  • Being involved in a sport does not mean you will always see good sportsmanship.
  • If you fall get back up and keep going.
  • Never give up.
  • Believe in yourself.
  • Support others.
  • You’re a good person if you do the right thing, treat other people fairly and stand your ground.

Writing our hearts out for a good cause

Over 400,000 Americans have MS – Multiple sclerosis (MS)

It seems like more have it – including three of my friends and about a dozen others I know or know of (friends of friends, people I do business with, etc).

When a writer in the WPaD Group (Writer’s, Poets and Deviants) came down with MS it was heartbreaking.

So we wrote and wrote and wrote. Writer’s from the US, Canada and other ports of call came together and wrote.

So far we have 3 anthologies with the proceeds going to MS research. Check out the books below online at  Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other places fine books are sold.

And why yes, I have stories in all three (Under the names Marla Todd, Juliette Kings and Oscar Gray)

The books are fun, entertaining, and CHEAP.

Great reading for a great cause.
