May is Neurofibromatosis Awareness Month

February 25, 2011

Several of us (Jennifer Walsh, Laurie Smith, Jerry Willman, Mercedes Christesen, Kristi Hopkins, Scott Chester) on Facebook are planning on an internet radio show on Passionate World Radio to raise awareness for neurofibromatosis.  I’ve talked to the station owner and all systems are go.  We have guests, possibly music, and everything in line for a 2-hour show.

All we need now is $200 to buy the air timePassionate World Radio has a huge built-in audience from 150 countries, so this venue is ideal for us.  The station owner is giving us a really good deal on airtime and will help us publicize the event.

Donations can be made via PayPal.  http://www.paypal.com/ Send whatever you can, $5, $10 . . . whatever to lillian.caudwell@gmail.com via PayPal.  Be sure to put NF AWARENESS in the notes so she knows the money is for our show.  Any excess funds will be donated to the Children’s Tumor Foundation.

If you prefer to donate with a check or money order, please send to:

Passionate World Radio, Inc.
PO 2344
Ann Arbor, MI 48106-2344

I hope you can help out with a few dollars, and please, please, please spread the word!

Thanks so much!

Down Home Ever Lovin’ Mule Blues
by Jacquie Rogers

Copyright (c) 2008 Jacquie Rogers

Humans are so stubborn.

But
never let it be said that we mules don’t take care of our humans. Mine
is Brody Alexander. I’m Socrates, master of cogitation and entertainer
of both large and small children.

Infinite
patience is required to endure Brody’s obstinance. Granted, we john
mules do have it easier than men. We don’t have this hormone thing
going on so we don’t spend our lives trying to make little mules.

That
gives us lots more time to cogitate. And believe me, I can think of a
few more species who could do with a little thoughtful uncommon sense.

Human
males, for instance. Why, they seem to spend every waking hour thinking
about sex, getting sex, or being disappointed by not having sex.

That’s
how I see it. Except I left one thing out—human males need more than
sex. They need love. My human could use a little loving these days.
Why, he’s been moping around worse than a porcupine on a bad hair day.

That’s
where the cogitating comes in. If testosterone hadn’t clouded Brody’s
thinking, he’d already know what he needs. Funny thing, those hormones.

The
way I see it, my job is to help his brain listen to his other
parts—especially his heart. And I have the answer. Yes, sir, I do. I
just saw a pretty little filly drive down the road, the very same one
who mooned over Brody ten years ago.

It’s time for action.

Read
what happens to Brody when Socrates puts his plan into action. Perseus
the Australian Shepherd and Guinnevere the skunk are gung-ho to help,
along with the neighbor dog, Beauty (bloodhound/collie mix).

May your saddle never slip!

Read the Reviews for Faery Special Romances!

As the reader, it was as if I journeyed through time and history with Keely, who gets her own romance story in the end … with an interesting twist. Author Jacquie Rogers has a winner with this gem. Recommended! ***** Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

Ms. Rogers deserved all 5 hearts I am giving for her collection of short romances. I think everyone needs a little Faery Dust to carry around in their pockets. Book Reviews by Crystal

Believe me when I say, this entire volume has a delightful collection of stories! This impressive author took the concept of the young faery Keely and brought her through the ages (Faeries live thousands of years, don’t cha know!) from pesky adolescent to adulthood. . . [a] wonderfully conceived and precious collection of short stories that will entertain you from the first to last page! Marilyn Rondeau, CK2S Kwips and Kritiques

Enjoy!

Hugs,
