    in Lifestyle

    There has been a lot of chatter lately about the decline of America.  The fingers point to our economic problems, our international profile, our racial divide, and, of course, to America’s boisterous and spoiled children.The fact is, that on this planet, as bad as it gets here in America, we still set the standard for a functional free society, a legacy that we want to pass on to our kids. But how do we, in this world of “everything now”, rear the children that will carry on the exception that is the American culture.  How do we make our kids winners in complex world of turmoil and technology? Donna Carol Voss, is now a stay-at-home mom. But, to quote her honest reflection: “I am a woman with a past.” That is not only the opening line of her memoir “One Of Everything” but also the centerpiece of her hang-on-hands-on life experience that makes her a very capable mom…. and an articulate writer. 


    Donna Voss’s life experience is eclectic. She is a Berkeley grad, a stay-at-home mom, a former pagan, and a devout Mormon. She is a fifty-something homemaker who has written a memoir, One of Everything, that is sure to provoke everyone about something  is due for release in May, 2015 and is available for presales on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com

    She is avoids negotiating the price of anything but will dive into intense interactions, especially if they are about politics and religion. Raised in the shadow of luxury, her favorite vacation is camping. She is an eternal optimist who is endlessly fascinated by the dark side of good people. Anxious to be liked by all, she has written a memoir, One of Everything, that is sure to provoke everyone about something.

    SERIAL KILLER QUARTERLY-Lee Mellor

    in Entertainment

    Dr. Katherine Ramsland wades through the heavy fog surrounding the“Moors Murders”: a series of high-profile child killings committed by Scottish sadist Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. Kim Cresswell churns the stomach with her unbelievable account of the atrocities committed by Fred and Rosemary West  Carol Anne Davis looks at one of the greatest abuses of police power in English history: the entrapment of Colin Stagg for the 1992 ripper-style murder of blonde beauty Rachel Nickell on Wimbledon Common. Meanwhile, the real killer, Robert Napper, was already confined to Broadmoor asylum for the 1993 evisceration murder of Samantha Bisset and the rape and deadly suffocation of her infant daughter. To top it all off, Edgar-Award winning author Burl Barer makes his SKQ debut, lending his highly original voice to an intriguing re-examination of the murders ascribed to “Yorkshire Ripper” Peter Sutcliffe, and the phenomenon of homicidal fame.


    Robert J. Hoshowsky, Aaron Elliott, and Kim Cresswell also look at three comparably notorious historical London slayers in their pieces on creepy old John Christie, “Acid Bath Vampire” John George Haigh, and Jack the Ripper suspect and bride poisoner George Smith.

    10 Things You MUST DoToBeAn Organized Caregiver,byOrganizingExpert,DebbyeCannon

    in Caregiving

    In the early 1980’s, I was caring for my 2 children (both under two years old, & in cloth diapers!) and life was absolutely eating me alive! I had the responsibilities of wife, mother, homemaker and I was endeavoring to run a substantial home-based business. I found that although my business was EXPLODING, my home life was IMPLODING! What WAS I thinking?


    By late afternoon, when I needed to be preparing dinner, I’d find myself collapsed in my kitchen from low blood sugar, surrounded by my little ones without a CLUE about what I could assemble for dinner. There would be pasta, but no sauce, meat frozen solid and no side dishes in my pantry. My house felt a mess. Laundry was piled high and the floors were so sticky I feared walking through the kitchen!


    I decided to create some shortcuts. I created a system for more than just surviving my life. Pretty soon I was actually thriving, and my friends noticed. By popular demand, I began teaching local workshop groups. The Butler family encouraged me to publish my system. The first edition was published in September of 1988, a second printing followed in January 1997 and a third edition in 2006.


    Prompted to share my systems and techniques, I have now become the SMARTcut® Expert. I am passionate about helping way past busy entrepreneurs especially Caregivers, who are struggling with the juggling. I hope my work will give you the time and energy to reach more of your personal dreams, serve your family, church and community in ways that really make a difference.
