a really good excuse. George and I got a puppy - a Poochon - a
miniature poodle/bichon mix. We picked her up
on my birthday in the beginning of February and named her Lexi.
Wow, has my life changed!
Our house, which, by the
way USED to have white rugs, is now littered with doggy toys and
shredded bits of whatever Lexi can get her
teeth into. The long drapes in our living room give a whole new
meaning to the term "puddled.". "NO!" has become
the de facto word of the day. My jacket, George's slip-on shoes,
and Lexi's leash are ready at the door so I can rush her outside
when I have the least inclination that she has to pee. My jacket

the designated pee area!

I have run the site pretty much as a service to the community.

if you wish
to help fund this site, you can do it now! If every
newsletter subscriber gave $1 per month, it would pay for the site

FREE MONTHLY DRAWING!
This month's Free
Monthly Drawing is a $20 gift certificate to the New
Hope or Lambertville business of your choice - sponsored by Bullock
Marketing & Design.
The January Winner of
a one hour consulting session with
Smith Coach, executive coach and consulting services
is Mary Vale.
Note: Due to an increase
in spam to the Free Monthly Drawing AND because I am having trouble
contacting monthly winners (most
likely because they have their own spam filters), I am now
requiring Free Monthly Drawing entrants to include their complete
information. If you would like to enter the drawing but do
not wish to submit your contact information, you can call me
