Life before cell phones: Do you remember a time when you looked into someone’s eyes when you spoke to them? Do you remember when you had a real up close, memorable, enjoyable conversation?

Turn your phone off and turn on and tune in to life! It’s not too late!

2 p.m.

When you’re over 50 years old as I admit I am, you become a walking piece of History.

I remember Walter Cronkite’s telecast on Channel 2 News on a black tube TV when I was a kid announcing the first lunar Landing.

I remember looking up things in the library system and using the Dewey Decimal System.

Are there any kids today that would know how to look something up in the library in the Dewey Decimal System?

If they had to do a research paper to get a Ph.d would they know how to do it? Or would they just sit there talking into Google all day?

Did you ever think that in the time that you told all your friends what you’re doing on Facebook you could have done something really cool instead?

When I was in high school I looked up things quite often in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and I always found the information I needed, with the help of some great, extraordinary Librarians with Master’s degrees in Library Science, rather than using my Vocal Search that I use daily on my Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

Technology has its place and the incredible technologies we possess enable to do things faster than we ever dreamed and information is accessed at a rate that is almost abnormal.

Instead of parents reading to their children, teaching them phonetics as my mom did me, and exposing them to reading books, and exposing them to new ideas and helping them become more well-rounded human beings, quite often a parent in 2018 will stick a smartphone in the kids hands at an unusually early age.

Unfortunately this doesn’t give any kind of bonding at all for the child and the parent gets an easy time out but the child is greatly deprived of the kind of attention that old-school parenting and reading and nurturing gives.

I see babies in strollers basically raised by apps or babysitters and not by the parent learning any kind of language skills whatsoever which is really sad and pathetic compared to what it used to be. The sad thing is the kind of talking I hear a lot of parents say is simply “shut up” so you wonder where the kid turns out to be a real loser later in life if he doesn’t have any positive role models to encourage him or her.

Watch what you say around children because they absorb it like a sponge and they will live up to your words.

Spend more time talking to your children and your family and really spending quality time with them. After all, they won’t be around forever.

Here’s the test to see if your addicted to the internet.

Remove Facebook and Twitter off your Smart device and free up all the space on it. Now watch how much time you just gave Yourself by doing that!

Just think about all the cool software you can put on your smartphone that does something really awesome with the 4GB Facebook takes for the app and the messenger.

Now ask your absolute best friends to share cell phone numbers with those friends that you called friends and see how many really share the number.

I was on Facebook 10 years and maybe a dozen gave me their cell phone number out of 1000!!!!

So in retrospect I was really wasting my time wasn’t I?

You want to have high quality friends even if it’s only 5 of them rather than 5,000 you don’t even know.

If you’re brave and courageous enough to remove those apps off your device and you don’t feel any kind of remorse or anything else once they’re off you probably weren’t addicted and it’s just something you did as a hobby.

If you noticed you feel anxious, and it kind of bugs you haven’t not having the networking sites there, go ahead and stick them back on.

Watch it though, Facebook and Twitter full of a lot of people doing a lot of nothing substantial that truly matters.

Give yourself a certain amount of time on them then happily walk away, and then get off of it and go do something else.

I call it be out with life in the living not behind a monitor or a cell phone

Make sure we don’t replace people with robots and take the very technology that we created to make our life as human beings easier and instead minimize human being’s ability to think, reason and to communicate in a normal way in the real world.

Do something wonderful that you’ve been wanting to do for a long time but you haven’t had the chance.

For every hour that you’re doing computer work get away from it for an hour or more.

Life’s too great to just simply look at computer screens.

Thank You from Paulette Motzko to the 26 New Followers in The Last 30 Days.

I would have more followers but I hear there’s no “follow me” button. I will be working on enhancing the features on the site to make that possible. 

The great news is that my followers are tried-and-true, they are genuine, they are intelligent extraordinary individuals whose talents even defy my own comprehension at times. What I envisioned when I created this site in 2012 has become literal reality that is even superseded what my vision was of the best for the site. Every follower every reader has come back like a magnet attrated for all the right reasons -because I am genuine and as what am I long-standing Facebook friends Maria Lourdes Lipardo told me-“you are so transparent”. At the time she said it I didn’t quite know what that meant. Now years later I call it a high compliment.

The world is full of far too many Yes Men comply or go along with a crowd. I’ve never been that kind of person I always have been an individualist.

Because I was misunderstood as a child, I am the quickest to try and understand others, and another person’s point of view. Matters to me to understand communication is Paramount. Just as I was telling a nice lady at the station casino Grand Cafe earlier last night:

We’re all connected on the planet no matter what race color creed. It really doesn’t matter what our faith is but that we believe in something greater than ourselves we treat others with dignity. We don’t need to be like one another, life would be boring if we were. We can learn from each other’s differences and grow as people.

The sun is coming up here in Las Vegas now when I can see the white flowers on the huge Bush surrounding my picture windows blooming. I live upstairs and like it because I’m the one making the noise and its private and I can have a garden on my balcony and go out there anytime and be in my “desert oasis” I created over time.

As I was looking at my statistics here I noticed the atlas of the world filling in with the readership from Canada and many other countries that never read my blog prior. 

Makes me a really feel gratified to know that the many hours that I invest in this site is appealing to all people and has become quite universal.

Thank you for all your contributions and comments app for putting a smile on my face everyday.

May every single person who reads this be blessed.

Test to see if WordPress.com is Still Blocking My Images After Paying $299.00 for their Business Plan. Updated Post

My Business Plan I purchased on September 9th, 2016 for TotallyInspiredMind is set to auto renew at $299.00 yearly on the same day this year, only if I feel their customer service improves radically and if I feel like I’m a valued part of what makes wordpress.com successful.

They still haven’t told me WHY  they needed more money from me-dodging the question, and instead said that if I didn’t update my payment information they would destroy my site! That’s kind of like backing me into a corner like a rat! Of course I don’t want my site destroyed after I worked relentlessly on it, and it’s won Awards, and I now have attracted nearly 3000 followers who have followed my journey from Orange Cpunty, California to Las Vegas, Nevada, and nearly hundred countries tune in monthly.

(Since this post was there. I got an apology from Edward, one of their a”Hppiness Engineers” which I think is a stupid thing to call themselves. ALL THE BLOGGERS ARE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE who are on here are serious, for the most part, about promoting their work. In a correspondence that I wrote yesterday afternoon,  to Maureen, the lady that I was supposed to have a chat (texting back and forth to infinitum) -which I did not show up for.

I told her that I am too busy to sit there chatting like a idiot when this warrants a voice-to-voice, real human being, because I deserve a more personal phone call from someone within the corporate offices and wordpress.com.  

Now they were wrong admitted it, they still have it resolved the fact that I paid for numerous other domains that I’ve not seen the.com status on my websites.)

 I will be looking seriously thinking about moving my sites somewhere else and hiring a local web company to help me move all the web content over to wordpress.org  where I can be guaranteed that I don’t have drama like this.

 The thing I will miss dramatically though is the ability to reblog other phenomenal writers material. 


It’s not so much the reblogging the other people’s material, but the fact that I become friends with almost every person that I share their material- and I get to know them as human beings and that is enormous. so, in my heart of hearts I would like to work it out with them.)

 

I created Totally Inspired Mind in 2012, and over time have created many other web logs on WordPress.com. Many have won awards and are very highly rated.

You would think, that whatever money WordPress.com made off me and my winning content, I could have got a better response from them-after all these years- than “Update your financial information or will destroy your site!” That shows no diplomacy or resonsibility to me to be a great company looking after my best interests, does it?  

What would you do if you were me? 

I’m interested in hearing what you would do if you were me.

 I welcome your comments and suggestions on this matter to me.

I’d like to think the company I now have a venerable Blogging Empire on -appreciates MY BUSINESS, my presence, and think that my work is so valuable they wouldn’t think of destroying it in a million years!  

The CEO and President of WordPress.com should contact me assuring me nothing like it will happen again. 

 I like him or her to give me an apology and to be sincerely horrified by the responses of three of their stupid “happiness engineers.”  

If you’re paying about $300 or more to make a site run I don’t know about you, but I want to do with somebody other than a happiness engineer who in one heartbeat thinks to destroy your brain child that so many woman hours went into I couldn’t begin to count them all. 

Would you call someone to happiness engineer if they wanted to destroy your blog?

Maybe a Grief Creator, or a Drama Creator would more aptly named what their “Happiness Engineers” really are  in the real world.

It is after all WordPress.com is a business and it runs very simply. 

The fact that after I made the decision to host Totally Inspired Mind here in 2012 I pay them for specific services and for doing that, I expect a level of professionalism and quality control to insure all THE WORK I INVEST in each Web site are protected. 

I want the company who has a vested interest in what I build and create and works with me to PROMOTE and insure and improve it, if anything.

The last thing I thought I’d ever hear if some idiot say they wanted to destroy it though when I paid for the VIP plan and the FAULT WAS THEIRS that they admitted in an email to me.

And what would have happened to me if they didn’t realize that they goofed? 

And if I hadn’t pointed it out so very very carefully? 

I don’t like other people make decisions so quickly the could adversely affect me. That’s a major character flaw in the company which I will see you to never ever happens to me again.

 I thought it would feel different about it but I’m down life’s pretty simple: you don’t like what you’re getting from one you go to another person you go to another company where they do respect you.

 Every blogger is Golden and their contant is prized. After all, all the top-rated blogs on wordpress.com make WordPress exist. Without the bloggers WordPress is just dust. Remember that. It’s like with a good restaurant you can have the best food in the world, the best silverware the best prettiest pictures on the wall but if you treat people like garbage you have no people there -without people you have no restaurant.

Even though I heard from the customer service person named Eduardo who apologized for what they did and said I was 100% right and said that they were wrong and said it was blame to a computer glitch that they’re resolving, it still bothers me because they were so quick to destroy my site over a mistake they made when I worked on this is 2012 and that is Unforgivable.

The fact that they have stupid people who work for them would make such an idiotic decision or even say it or suggest it is repulsive. They’re supposed to help me promote it not destroy it common the fact that they goofed and made a mistake like that admit it or not, they don’t treat their valued customers the way they should. Is Albert Einstein said “when you repeat the same mistake over and over again it is called Insanity.”

Period I’m a nice lady but I’m not an idiot and business works very simply I pay them lots of money to make all my sites work and in one second a customer service three people didn’t answer my questions, and some idiot who didn’t invest one time in any of the things I’ve created nor know the amount of work that goes into creating it nor does he care was willing to destroy it and one second! Not cool. Not good business practice the better business bureau if I would tell them this whole story they would agree with me and I think any view bloggers out there the millions who sign up to wordpress.com would agree with me. You’ve seen the site from the day I created it and hotel room and Huntington Beach California when I realized I couldn’t take care of my mother any longer who had severe Alzheimer’s disease and I know that she needed and entire staff caring after her versus me, and I needed to not do it any longer and take care of me. Those realizations opened up a world for me and what I wanted to see what this site is exactly what it’s become. This is become a place where extraordinary people who care about the world, the environment, the future, children and everything that matters in life all congregate people people who care more about the entire world and themselves. Every extraordinary follower who is joined this site over the last month what you been over I believe 50, I thank you for your very special presence here. You make the site great and you make it very very special by you being here.

Obviously the people who run WordPress.com are not Triple Winners. They dont care about me, or my original web that gave them permission to share all over the place when I signed up to WordPress.com.

It’s too bad that WordPress.com doesn‘t get the big picture and realize that people like  me- and you-my dedicates readers and followers matter.

Without the writers and without photographers and without loggers WordPress goes bankrupt.

It’s too bad WordPress doesn’t see it as plainly as I are you do. Obviously money is the only thing on their minds and they don’t care what they do to my content everybody with it.

know that and don’t see that and don’t treat people who are VIPs with respect.

 Wordpress hasnt shown they as a company appreciate my business  and since this is a big wide world I will be working on taking their business elsewhere.

I wasnt able to find anyone to answer me with an intelligent answer to my intelligent question when I’ve asked them on numerous times why they wanted more money when my billing date is nowhere near due.

When after 5 years contributing original content here, the only thing I hear is “update your financial information or will destroy your site”? 

That’s not cool. As matter fact it’s not even professional.

I’ve saved every email, every bit of Correspondence on Evernote from WordPress.com. I have everything dated from every “customer service person” and “happiness expert”- and Im not happy who has contacted me with this company. Even with them admitting they screwed up and Eduardo with WordPress.com admitted they had no right to ask for continually more moolah….and they are still adressing why all the domains I bought don’t reflect .com on them.

Their stupidity and rash bad decisions almost cost me every bit of work I spent on here, turning 5 years of labor intensive efforts into dust. It is that and ignorable fact that i’s  going to have me move it elsewhere. The site will exist it’s just going to be better than one of these here with no limits and no fear tactics to get unauthorized payments from me.

I’m flabbergasted because I would have thought that WordPress.com would have realized how they can’t exist without all of the writers, bloggers and everyone who makes this site possible. I wouldn’t have created a venerable Empire here if I had thought any different.  I guess having hundred countries a month reading your blog isn’t good enough for him though huh. They didn’t create any of my site’s they are so quick to yet they are so quick to think of destroying them?

This is definitely not a good working creative environment.

Anybody have any comments, suggestions, did anyone learn anything by me airing the story?

Hopefully, if you paid for the Business or Premium plans like I did, and you didn’t get what you bought,  you’ll address it and get what you should have all along.

If your life was a movie what would you name it?

Who are the star players in it and why?

Do you think your life would be a drama, comedy, thriller or family friendly rated G?

Interesting points to ponder.

My mom taught me as a young child of four years old but I so she ate it with it soon I could become like period when you start thinking that way you’ll rethink the people you associate with period sometimes inadvertently we can pick up people’s vernacular and word choice comma without even knowing it period sometimes people’s habits creep up and before you know it you’re doing what they’re doing. What are some of the people in your life that you value and why are they the star players and what about them is special and helps you become the person that you were meant to become?

I’ll be working on my answers to all these questions and I will post them when I’m done.

Here’s a huge and warm welcome and thank you to all my new followers on Totally Inspired Mind too.

Thank you to each and every one of my Triple-Winning, Extraordinary 2,691 Followers on Totally Inspired Mind!

You each are like special gifts that I unwrap each day when I read your comments and also explore your own blogs, stories and photographs.   

I am very blessed to know you all through WordPress, and others through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and some fresh air addresses and phone numbers. ( I am not on Facebookmuch any more due to it being too distracting on my goals I am trying to accomplish.)

I am a voice-to-voice and face-to-face kind of person anyway. I don’t like to text and it was clear using messaging thing, because I start feeling like a robot rather than a human being.

Keep being wonderful and special and I will keep trying to empower, educate,  entertain and inspire you back!

Do you live in a big city like I do? Share what it looks like at this Winter wonderland time of year in words. 

Do you live in the country away from the hustle and bustle of city lights, where it’s quiet enough to hear crickets chirp at night? 

Share what your holiday looks like and feels like seeing  through your unique eyes. 

If you make your words picturesque enough you won’t need photos and instead will allow the readers to use that great, underused thing called “their imaginations.”

Heartfelt Appreciation to the 626 Followers of Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate

I want to give a heartfelt thanks to these countries that tuned in today and made it their point to see what I was writing about, and sharing.

This year has gone off to a good start and e
United States.

These are the countries that tuned in on Sunday, January 12th, 2014

Qatar
United Kingdom
India
Canada
Australia
Nigeria
Belize
Brazil
Malaysia

Today the demographics totally changed and the main thing that remains constant with all of the things I write is The World Is Reading What Paulette Le Pore Motzko writes.
I woke the world up with the articles I write about how we are all connected on this big blue planet called earth, the homeless epidemic, homeless veterans and why those two words should never go together or homeless disabled person and why I want to see that all people, no matter who they are, are allowed to live with respect and dignity.

From the quotes I select or write myself, to the photos I shoot or choose to air, it speaks worlds about me.

image

This post originally would have been much better and I intended to elaborate how much I appreciate all the new readers who also are writers and photographers, but something happened to stop me.

I had a bad breakthrough complex partial seizure in the Starbucks that was playing overly funky loud music in Anaheim on Katella & State College Blvd. I asked my friend Nick Belman to ask them to turn the music down. (Because then I could have focused on how to abort the aura I was having with biofeedback combined with imagery and progressive relaxation.) I needed QUIET to do that though.

Instead my “friend” Nick argues me and starts yelling predicting what the baristas would say beforehand, always the defeatest personality….so he never asked them and I passed out, just as I knew I would if he didn’t simply ask!

If that wasn’t bad enough, he started yelling at me and insulting me so the chapters of our friendship closed last night. It is not rocket science to help someone in time of need- is it?

I felt like a steam roller had run over me and knew it had been a bad one and it left me with auras-that feel the same as the seizures. After calling everybody I knew with cars-3 people-and none of them being able to make it for one reason or another….I said a trillion prayers for strength and made it home on the hour bus ride “home”-where I didn’t even want to be-because I live with Nick Belman-the guy that screamed at me calling me names after I was the one that had a seizure!

image

Oh well. Some have to have it spelled out for them why I will not be friends with him.

A friend looks after another friend, defends a true friend, makes sure they are alright, protects them and doesn’t have to be told these things.

image

I have heard verbal abuse since my “friend Nick” has allowed me to stay with him. For staying with him I made meals with him and gave him a reason to smile that he didn’t have before. Gave him my 14 MP digital camera so he would have something to shoot photos with, because he is a talented photographer. He doesn’t use it though and has not expressed desire to learn or even try. I think the gift was wasted.

image

The reason I am telling the world any of this is:
After the age of 18 years of age, people are choices we keep in our lives.
If the person keeps failing miserably and showing you that not only he doesn’t value you or care about whether you make it home safely or in one piece and shows total apathy or stupidity-you don’t need that person in your life. It doesn’t matter if you are related to that person or not, if they abuse you on regular basis, do everything you can to avoid that person and remove them from your life.

image

People are a combination of who their parents were and also they can become more than their parents were by the dedication and drive and persistence and passion in which they fought for what they believed.

If anyone knows of a kind, Christian family that would love to have me live in a spare room, until I get things settled with my new room mate, who I found. It is only a matter of time now. Between us both we can afford a place and that we will be able to call home. I will cook and can cook really great dishes for the family who I will live with, for the price of a room to stay in temporarily- about a month.

image

I only hope that Nick can remember the good times we had together, which were numerous, and look at the photos, and remember the meals I cooked for him during the 6 months I have slept on his couch.

image

Why in the heck was I sleeping on his couch?
Well, that is a whole other story that can be explained by reading “I Am My Mother’s Voice”, and about how after choosing to pay my parent’s mortgage on their house for 13 years and help my mom-still alive, thank God, with Alzheimer’s disease, my brother-in-law & sister evicted me from the duplex and didn’t care what happened to me-literally!

image

Yes, sometimes bad things happen to good people, and I am a good person that had bad happen to me but I will never ever let it ruin me or warp the inherent good I know are in most of the people I come in contact with through the course of my days.

Question for you: Is something really a gift if you hear about it all the time from the person who gave it to you?

Answer: NO. A gift is something that is willingly given, even knowing you might never ever get one iota of credit for giving it.
You know someone is genuine when they do something knowing they will never get paid for it, but because they can.

If any of you live in Orange County, CA or know of a family member who lives in Orange County and would allow me to rent a room in a clean non smoking household-I can cook for the family, clean for the family and help with older kids.

In other words, create a triple win situation that would genuinely help the family.
Email me at either Paulette_Motzko@yahoo.com
or
TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com

I was seizure free before being evicted from the place I live in April.
When I live in a kind caring home without people yelling at me or screaming at me or belittling me-I will have peace of mind and health once again.
Everybody pray that happens soon!

Yes I am 100% eligible for a HUD housing voucher, but they tell me there is a ten year wait. Quite a joke, isn’t it and they mayor doesn’t care or any of the directors of the Urban Housing program.
Most are overpaid paper turners that just keep turning papers mindlessly and don’t care to get more funding for program that goes hand in hand with having SSI or SSDI.
A program is essential because even the highest paycheck in SSI is below poverty wage. The solace comes in knowing I am not the only disabled person in this predicament, but I want to be the one that changed how pathetic the system currently is…and I will in good time.

Before publishing this blog post, I want to thank God for answering most of my prayers recently. My health and my pills work as long as I am not harassed, yelled at or mistreated.

Hopefully after printing this Nick will see how this reads and sounds and wish me well, be kind and say two magic words that won’t heal it or make what he did right, but at least it shows she has a conscious. “I’m Sorry.” He also could be incapable of admitting he is wrong in any capacity whatsoever, which would be sad for him.

I want to thank these countries for tuning in today and finding inspiration in my words, beauty in my photographs and interest in who I am. More people have read “About Paulette Le Pore Motzko” than anything on Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate.

I am the only one by that name in the world, and I have checked extensively. That way, there is no confusion who the lady is who bears that French Italian Polish name!

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry…

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” – Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde’s words made me think here and then re-think what exactly he meant.

In my opinion what he is saying is:

We imitate way too often in life. From the thoughts we think to the opinions we claim are our own. Many are afraid to say anything out of the ordinary, even if they might be totally right and have valid points to make.

I think the most boring people around and also the most annoying are those who won’t state their opinion about anything. They fear someone will disagree with them so they say nothing at all.

Even worse is the person who could have turned in the cell phone they found in a bathroom stall so the rightful owner could have a chance at cleaiming their world and contacts and information contained therin. (I mention that specific example because I turned one in last night when I found in sitting in the bathroom.) The opportunities are all over though to make that difference, if you only feel like it.

When was the last time you stood up for a cause you felt strongly about?

Sign a petition on Care.org and become involved with making a difference in the world, one signature at a time.

I know everybody speaks of how many followers one has on Twitter or Face Book or other networking sites. When was the last time you thought of “where you are leading people to”?

When Oscar Wilde said their lives are a mimicry, it is because few set the pace for others or are TREND SETTERS….showing the way to better or newer ways of doing things or thinking.

By saying “their passions are a quotation” I think Oscar Wilde meant instead of us making the most out of what are strenths and passions are enabling us to be quoted one day, we “retweet” other’s words instead of writing or creating something with the intent for it to have lasting longevity.

I hope this made you think in new and enlightening ways.

If it did, I did my job as a writer.

What book or film impacted your life or altered how you see the world? What art left a lasting imprint on your soul?

I found a great post on Word Press that asked his reader this telling question so I thought I would ask the readers of Totally Inspired Mind.

What book impacted your life in a good way that has left a lasting imprint on your soul?

Share the book title with the readers on the site here.

My answer:

I read Helen Keller’s biography when I was a kid in 5th grade and shared it with my friend Cheryle Lightcap, who was blind and sat in the back of the class with her countless books in braille. After seeing what Helen Keller did and was blind and deaf, with the help of Anne Sullivan, I knew I could do anything I would set my mind to do in life. What I was diagnosed with, epilepsy, even though not well controlled, seemed like nothing by comparison.

Helen Keller is to this day my heroine and if you read her essay called “Optimism” you will see just what a genius she was and it is so incredible because she wrote as though she could see and spoke of topics like philosophy, religion, and politics.

Read any of Helen Keller’s books. She didn’t just write one, but over 20! You can find them all by searching her name in the books section on Amazon and also talking to a good librarian. Her book Mid Life was written later in her life. Even in her late years, she referred to Anne Sullivan as her “teacher”.

My mother was always my “Anne Sullivan” to me instilling values, and integrity and my belief system as well as fostering every talent I possess. The best I am I owe to her.
I hope others write and tell what books made an impression on them as I did here.

Sixty One New Followers of Totally Inspired Mind & Arranging a Meeting with the Mayor of LA

Image

As I have been adding videos, categorizing old posts so none say “uncategorized” and the other laborious things involving keeping this up and running and working….I just got word that there were 61 new followers here.

I will say I am so pleased that I can give joy to so many people and that my readers think that what I write educates them, inspires them and shows them new ways of thinking. I changed the format of the site today. What do you think of the changes I made?

Until I put up the next post that I wrote yesterday at Starbucks, about 2000 words, I bid you all a wonderful evening. It is raining here in southern California.

Still looking for a place that I can afford.

I also contacted my attorney to get a meeting with the mayor of Los Angeles to so I can discuss issues like taking the CA Budget and increasing the allocated funds for the disabled community like myself about 50 million dollars. That would provide the voucher I desperately need now to afford a one bedroom place somewhere in Orange County now. I would be helping about 200,000 other disabled people who don’t have the fortitude or courage or persistence I do, if I am successful. Everything I have ever done in my life I have been success at.

When I accomplish something in life I picture me shooting a basketball over the top of the moon. I figure if I come in a little next to the top of the moon, I am still doing damn good. Things need to be changed in Orange County, and since Orange County doesn’t have a mayor but it has needs, I will begin there.

I will be writing a petition showing what will be done with the money that I am asking for, but let’s put it this way. I haven’t driven for nearly 15 years and have seen countless disabled people in wheel chairs who are homeless! One person like that is too many! I have seen a dozen on a regular basis and talked to them and heard their stories. It is TRAGIC and they are American Citizens who have civil rights and deserve to live in integrity with roofs over their heads, a place to sleep and a pillow under their heads, not to mention some where to wash themselves and take care of themselves properly. WE have the money in CA to take care of everybody. The money is there period. It needs to be allocated differently and maybe some people’s salaries need to be cut a little to take care of everybody and let everybody live in dignity.

Veterans are another sore issue with me, and my dad was one and crippled in a wheel chair needing 24 hour assistance in the end of his life, ending last September 2012. I have bought care packages for at least a dozen Vets who proudly served this country to end up crippled in a wheelchair forgotten as though they don’t exist! That is outrageous. What kind of country are we that we don’t care of the very people who served and protected all of us?

These are other issues I will be discussing with the Mayor of Los Angeles. I am a good writer, I can write the speeches I give, and have been on television before using teleprompters on a commercial I did for Orange County News Channel when I was the Director for The Epilepsy Foundation. It was the first commercial produced and aired about epilepsy in over 50 years.

I am a catalyst for Positive Change. I never wanted to get into politics but I care about the big picture and don’t see things through the eye of a pin like so many congress people who are rich and don’t know the real life struggles of day to day.

I know I suffered because a lot of the way we do things in this country, which in many respects are wrong and unfair to single men, single women like myself, and giving priority to women with kids, acting as though every one else doesn’t exist or isn’t important. I want to see everyone treated the same with the same opportunities no matter what color their skin or if they have a child or how much they have their bank account.

I have ideas for a Health Care System that I want to propose to President Obama, but it will take a trip to the White House to show it to him.

It is worth it.

I could change the lives of millions of people if I did. Someone has to care to begin with. That person is going to be Antonio Viliagosi who I sent repeat faxes to with no contact back. My attorney called him and I am sure now he knows I mean business.

I wish that the most important things were the easiest to obtain in life, but they aren’t.

“The open mouth gets fed” as they say or “the one that makes the most noise gets heard.”

I know that when the mayor sees me, and talks to me, it will be harder to forget me. Then things begin to happen to change the way things are…..for the better.

have had Vietnamese men at Starbucks when discussing politics and promoting English in this county and opening the job market up for everybody who can do the job, hiring interpreters for those who need it
