Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day

Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

This was sent in by our personal coach - Camille Kocsis

More about Gail and Laughter

Last month at the Network, we 'laughed for no reason' with Gail Robinson. I would like you know a little secret about Gail. She is also an inventor of sorts. Gail has formulated an earth-friendly laundry powder called Moon Works. It is 100% biodegradable and, as the label states, "naturally low suds, brightens, deodorizes, cleans like crazy & rinses with no residue." I can attest, after my fourth load of laundry this morning, that the statement is true. It comes in three varieties: lavender, balsam fir and unscented. The soap is available at Port City Organics, 321 River Street. This is the proverbial win-win-win-win situation: empowering a woman entrepreneur, supporting a local vendor, caring for our beautiful environment, and laughing over the laundry. After all, you'll think of Gail every time you throw in a load.
Take care,
Sharron Lemmer
