Dolphin Tale Movie


For anyone that knows me, they know I LOVE LOVE LOVE Dolphins. I loved them before they were cool or the 'in thing' to collect. For our honeymoon trip 11 years ago, my husband took me to swim with the dolphins. It was the most fun thing I've ever done.

Growing up on islands, on Oahu and Okinawa, I have always had a love affair with these amazing creatures. They're gracious and inviting. Their communication skills are deeper and more complex than we'll ever understand. They're playful explorers who deserve our affection and adoration.

Wyland is my favorite artist. His art graces murals all over the world with his underwater marine life paintings. I have his art adorning my walls at home.

The mysterious nature of dolphins is one I've always aligned with my entire life, so you know the movie 'Dolphin Tale' is a must see for me!

When I saw the trailer for Dolphin Tale my entire insides were screaming. However since I was in the theater, I couldn't jump up in excitement - although I really felt like it. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw my husband staring at me during the trailer for the film. I turned to see him knowingly smiling down at me. He knew what I was feeling....pure joy at the thought of this amazing film concept. And then to find out it was based on a TRUE story with 'Winter' starring in her own role....forget about it I couldn't hold it in any longer.

I yelled out for all to hear - 'I can't wait to see it!' The crowd giggled in response.

So now that it's coming out on DVD...I'm hoping I get a copy of if in my stocking. This film is everything its promised to be. In my opinion it's the best 'feel good' movie of the year. Plus it has an amazing cast -- Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, Harry Connick Jr, & Morgan Freeman. These are actors that align with superior projects across their career.



Dolphin Tale is produced by those that did 'The Blind Side', which is a good indicator to prove it's stature of being a heartfelt feel-good film.


Take a look at the trailer.

Voting is like a PBJ

So, yesterday was voting day for many offices like County Clerk and Congress.   I always want to educate myself on the many issues and campaign trailblazers so I can make my voice count.  Voting is our God-given right which wasn't even acknowledged by our nation until the women's suffrage movement.  Many of our great - great grandmothers met, marched, and went on strike to strive for the right to vote.
When I hear anyone I come in contact with say that due the fact that they don't like anyone on the ballot they're not going to vote - it blows my mind!  We are blessed with that privilege!  And even if you don't like anyone, to not vote is still casting a vote because your voice isn't heard.  
Think of it like this:   What if there was only a choice between peanut butter or jelly - and the popular vote would bring to light what we're allowed to eat.   If you say, 'Well, I don't like either, so it doesn't matter!'  Then you choose not to vote.…

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …
