Who needs Oprah...When I can have 50 Cent!

Every author in the world dreams of the chance to have Oprah declare on national television that their book is a “must read” because we all know that after she says those two little words, we will gain instant fame and financial prosperity. Oprah has that kind of power. Unfortunately though, for the vast majority of us unknown wannabes, we will remain just that---unknown---and then spend a lot of time, energy and sometimes a lot of money trying to get our little book noticed out of the thousands that get published each year.

But wait a minute---I really don’t feel so bad about Oprah not paying attention to my book, Whatever! A Baby Boomer’s Journey into Middle Age. After all, she’s also ignoring the great talent of the rapper 50 Cent. (great and talent are debatable depending on who you ask). I guess you’re wondering what one has to do with the other.

WHATEVER! A Baby Boomer's Journey Into Middle Age (review)

Oh ladies!!!

I just last night finished Beverly's book, *Whatever!* and I've got to tell you....WHAT A REFRESHING treat!!! It was like sitting with Beverly herself and just chatting with her! I devoured the book in two sittings. Initially, I was going to take the book with me on my girlfriend weekend that I go on every year (it's this weekend!!!!) But the book just sat on my desk, calling out to be read!!! So...I indulged myself and I am so glad that I did!

I especially loved the way the book unfolded...as you read through it...your mind thinks of questions that you would like to ask Bev as she shares and to my delight....I found myself reading the answers in very short order!!

She is candid, and MOST honest about her own journey through menopause and the aging process......if you already love this woman....you will love her even more when you are finished with her book...

Thank you Beverly, for daring to address and share your experiences with this trying time in a woman lif…

Women can rule on election day!

I ran across a very interesting article from Reuter's News Service that talks about the impact women can have on today's election. Here's a portion of it:


Women on their own" -- single, divorced and widowed – are urged to go to the polls on November 7.

"They are the fastest growing demographic group in this country," said Page Gardner, president of Women's Voices Women Vote, the group that produced the ad.

"In 2004 they were 22 percent of the electorate yet there were still 20 million unmarried women who did not vote," she said. "If they voted in higher numbers ... they could literally help determine the agenda in this country." Unmarried women tend to lean Democratic, political experts said.

Gardner said her group was nonpartisan and its goal was just to convince unmarried women -- who pollsters describe as a group that often feels "left behind" and uninformed -- that they have the power to make an impact in the vote.
