A Tribute to a GREAT Woman

My heart is truly saddened by the loss of my oldest sister Dianne. She was more to me than just a sister, almost like a mother of sorts, since she was 18 years old when I was born. It's funny how people can effect your life and how they really impact it in ways that are hard to explain.

I am the woman I am today partly because of the person she was. I am so honored to have shared my life with her, but at the same time feel cheated from being able to create more memories together.

I know her spirit lives on in me, and through me, but still, I will forever miss her gigantuous smile, her kick ass approach to life, and her warm, caring, and loving heart. My life and those of others, will never be the same without her. No doubt, she has enriched the lives of all she has touched.

See ya sissa!!!!

The Roar to the Shore Rally

Well, I'm back. I wasn't sure I was going to make it. What a long ass ride that was! It took us eleven hours to get there, sitting in bumper to bumper traffic through NYC, dealing with some of the country's most craziest drivers (no offense, but I'm use to a more laidback approach to driving up here in "Cow Hamphire") and scorching temps. The ride home took a bit less time since I dared to maneuver the bike in and out of the traffic, cutting folks off if I had too. lol I'm pretty proud of myself for enduring such a ride. I even handled a close call with a flying seat cushion and racing tractor trailer truck quite well. I feel like now, I can ride anywhere. ☺

I got to meet up with some old friends, and party with some new. Met some fascinating folks too, like Billy Lane, Russell Mitchell and Athena "Chickie" Ransom of "Vagabond Choppers". What a woman!! She is such an inspiration for all of us struggling to start and run a business doing something we love, while surviving some of life's hardships along the way http://http// A great woman! I am so honored to have made her acquaintance. And I'm looking forward to doing business together. Speaking of which, it's time to get off the computer and get some work done. Ciao!
