Blood, Ice, and Veterans

Catching up

Jim

Jim wishes everyone a great Mothers Day. He has finished Philip K Dick’s masterpiece FLOW MY TEARS, THE POLICEMAN SAID (Thanks, Tessa!) Great, great novel. This has inspired him to continue writing. More stuff to come.

Our friend Jennifer (a real live Vegas chef) prepared a sumptuous meal for us on Wednesday in exchange for our feedback on a speech she is preparing. It was a great evening. Jennifer also came to Las Vegas Improvisational Players. We love friends like her!

Mélanie

Speaking of LVIP, our friends Mitch and Wendy came in from Seattle on Saturday and surprised Melanie by coming to the show. We will hopefully get to see them once more while they are here. As for Melanie, she had a successful live webinar on Wednesday, Essential Communication Techniques for Administrative Professionals. She has committed to finishing at least one book per year.

 

Good news

Our friends and past guests Darryl Small and Lauren Coe have tied the ol’ knot! Congratulations, love, and best wishes for a long, loving life together.

From Jim: Billionaire Opens New Mental Health Clinic In Colorado To Treat Veterans And Their Families This puts the lie (again) to all rich people being greedy and selfish.

 

From Melanie: Man Who Has Saved The Lives Of Over 2 Million Babies Makes His Final Blood Donation An amazing man has saved many lives.
