What's Next

It has been a while since I have been on here to catch everyone up. So here it goes....

As we are still planning our trip to Ireland in October, the Scotland trip is still in the works. It has taken some time but we will get there. Our head of research for Hidden Gems Scotland, Laurna, has been incredibly busy and man has she come across some GREAT finds and interesting people for us to speak with when we get there!! Laurna is AH MAZING!!!

As of now my work schedule and keeping up as band mom with the Marching Skyhawks has kept me in shape. Exhausted, but in shape! Seriously folks, if you wanna get in great shape, become a delivery driver, screw a gym membership!

Working on the seond edition of "Embracing My Strange". Release date unknown at this time. I decided to do this due to information and pictures not previously released along with NEW information discovered since the original release, good stuff! "Embracing My Call" and the second edition of "Embracing My Strange" I CAN say will be released sometime in 2023! ( Second edition sooner IF I can swing it). 

I am still working on some other things to be added to this website. Until I get the wrinkles ironed out on details, mums the word on those! 

Hope you all have been beyond blessed, take care and as always I thank you all for the love and support!

- Stay Strange!

Starting Anew

So here it is, the Friday before I begin my new job. Does this make it my "Good Friday"? I hope it does. I have been needing a break for sometime and this just may be it. 

Although I had been out of the work force due to medical reasons for four years, returned working retail just last September and now switching jobs, it is still fresh to me. Amazing how odd I still feel when seeing the changes around me after being out of the "force" for only those four years. Mentality and work ethic is not what it used to be. Although it's not necissarily a bad thing. I mean people are realizing their worth and that's great but I am also noticing the "I deserve more than THAT " attitude as well

I am not saying anyone deserves to be verbally abused nor taken advantaged of in the least. Far from it. But let's face it, if you're dealing with the public you will get the less than the home trained kind. Not saying it's okay, because it certainly isn't. I will say that people have gotten to be, well, candy assed. Yup. You read that right. CANDY ASSED. Some think their ass is so sweet their shit don't stink. Well, sorry to break it to ya, all shit stinks. So suck it up buttercup and get your ass to work! Do you not see what is going on around you? I find the hidden blessings in NOT being approved for disability. Because I will be dammned if I have to depend on the Government or anyone elese for shit. Why? Cause....say it with me....ALL SHIT STINKS! 

The point of this blog is simple. DEPEND ON YOURSELF. Sure, it's okay to ask for help from time to time. We all need it. Goodness knows I did and I was blessed enough to have a friend or two be able to come through and help. But in the latest mindset of what I have been seeing, stop being so damn ridiculous, thinking you are too good for something and rather sit on your ass at the mercy of the government waiting on a check when you are PERFECTLY capable to work. Where is your PRIDE? You best get it back....it's all you got left. 

Stay Strange!

Looking Forward

I keep reminding myself that part of starting this website is for people to get to know me better. I have been told by close friends that for years I have been behind the scenes and promoting others "long enough". Well, thing is, that is what I am used to doing. So starting this website and being more proactive with my brand, my name, is a bit of a stretch for me. I do enjoy making videos, traveling and sharing new lessons with others. Espcially the really cool finds like historical ones that we are not taught in school. With that I must also learn to get comfortable with myself again. The self that I have long ignored. The clairvoyant one. I reached deep down to write "Embracing My Strange". I woke demons that were well into slumber for many years. As frightening as it was, I found it therapeudic as well. However, it has turned into a double edged sword. I have found answers to some of the questions that haunted me for many years, only now to discover more questions. This is now taking me on a new journey. Trying to find more revelations to the chapters of my life that I once were thought closed. At least now, I am not a child anymore. I find myself still second guessing myself. My abilities, gifts, as some would call them. As an example during a recent trip to Jamestown, Va while walking around the grounds of the old Church there, I felt a pull to go to a certain area. Once there, to my surprise, was a name. A last name that had become all to familiar with me and my PTP partner Vanessa Hogle during our recent filmings for the Yore and Lore episodes. My heart began to pound as I called out to her and Loper for them to come over to where I was standing. Once they arrived, Vanessa was just as amazed as I at what our eyes were gazing upon. I looked at Van and said this had to be the same family and it had to be connected. Mind you, it isn't an odd last name, yet I just knew. While doing research in the office yesterday for episode 3 of Yore and Lore (Jamestown), I found it. Proof. Undeniable proof that I was right and this now deceased person, this spirit, spoke to me and wanted me over there where they were. I cannot wait to share this story with you all as I know in my gut what I must do. Follow my intuition. STOP doubting myself. Listen to spirit again now as I did when I was a child. Now, can I get my head to follow through? Stay Strange!

Wow!

It has been almost a week since starting this website and I am overwhelmed by the response! Almost 300 hits on my little website already! I am truly honored. I work a regular job as a stocker outside of my home. When not at my regular job, I am at my office for Perfect Trust Productions LLC located in Prince George, Va. There, I am usually busy editing videos and books, working on the other websites, the redbubble account, the KDP account for the publishing, narrating or doing banner work on several projects. Oh, did I mention that I am also trying to write my second book, "Embracing My Call"....yeah...a little busy. Also to note, we (my PTP LLC partner, Vanessa Hogle) and I are preparing to travel back to Ireland this October as she was selected as the Ambassador for Secret Ireland Tours LLC and their Halloween Tour for 2022! So, as her assistant (being she is a 6x best selling author herself), I will be going to help. I know, poor me, right? In the meantime I will be working, taking care of my son who is a percussionist in his band in school now (proud band mama here), editing, producing, directing and narrating episodes for Yore and Lore and for the BPI re releases, banner work, editing and publishing books for our authors and whatever else gets thrown my way. Thank you all who have been so kind to show support in any way you could! Much love to each of you!

Hello!

After years of building my team, a company, writing , learning and doing more with editing/directing/producing....and then came my best seller "Embracing My strange", I decided to finally do my own website! It is still under serious construction as of this date, but I am hopeful it will work out well. Instead of me having 7 or 10 social media accounts to keep up with, I deleted my personal FB (only have a dummy account on there now). Rid my personal IG and the IG for BPI as well as their FB as well. There was simply no need for all of it. Of course here I am almost 50 in a couple of years, and I am just figuring this out! In any case, thank you for coming along for the ride. Hold on tight! It's gonna be a bumby one!! Thank you all for the overwheling love and support over the years! It has not been overlooked nor forgotten. Stay Strange!
