Than you for posting this Karen., ..on the 2nd photo, I didn't know you were going to pliubsh this one with Mike Harker's write up. We had a little BBQ at my ranch yesterday, kind of our own, very un-official Mike Harker memorial deal, just kinda came together at the last minute. BEFORE anybody chimes in here about Timmie Guckes's catalina run in under 1 hour in 1966, pulled by Bob Nordskog, (hands out front, behind a 18 ft. flat bottom, btw) You will not find this in the record books as whoever was running the race that year would not recognize it as a record because they didn't do it in the boat they started with. Seem's the 1st boat wasn't running up to par so they turned around after they had started, dropped Tim, switched boats an headed out again, and finished in 54 minutes. Tim ran into Bob a few years back, sez Bob was still upset they didn't give them the official record back then.
Maybe we will skip Rose's place at the end of the month and come visit you... I want that BAD...lol. Just kidding Rose. Gail... you are truly ainamzg. I know I keep saying that, but you truly are. I am in awe of your talents and how you can think the project through and not be afraid to tackle the sticky things. I think it would have been out to the curb before the lid made it's way to the top. I predict this is going to be up there amongst your other winners... in mags, pinned a million times... this one is going to put you into the Hall of Fame for DIY'ers. Great job Buddy.Hugs, DebPS... I already pinned and will be sure to share.
Roger,I am very interested in your work I thhogut the seminar was wonderful I was unable to re listen to all of it but what I have heard I really liked.. I am the mother of two adopted children and have had a journey in this area.I am also a teacher of The Alexander Technique The Alexander Technique is a system of mind and body re education . I use this with my children and myself . It helps with finding a place of mindfulness as it gives the tool to stop in the moment and quiet the system before choosing how to respond to our children. It also has great properties to help children with their balance when they are learning writing reading running playing as it brings us back to our inate balance and co ordination.Alexander also believed the Industrial Revolution was the downfall of our development as individuals and as you , does not believe in labels.I have a question about how that all plays out in the world as yesterday my 15 year old son could not use the bathrooms at the beach , needed to use the bathroom and I had to leave my friend with the other two 13 year olds my daughter and her friend till I could find somewhere for him to go . I found a health club and had to say my son has special needs and can not use the public bathroom then she let me in with him.He is wonderful and is functioning well but I have lots of questions. I will not be able to be free during the panel today.I would like to be in touch and talk about how I might help both my children more and tell how I have .I like Bryan Post's work very much and would like to link up with him as I feel my work fits well with his as it really helps people to stop and do something different . His philosophy of different is very true and helpful.I liked all the speakers I heard . All differing aspects of helping ourselves and our children.I have been using lots of different methods of help and I believe that we can add in the things that help and you provided a lot of new opportunities.I would like to talk further about moving forward for more help for my kids and the work as well as how my journey might help others.So I will not try to be there for the panel today most likely but would like to be in touch with you and your wife, with the attorney at the least. How is it best to do this?Thanks Alice Olsherthanks
