Story
Introduction
Born and raised in Bellingham, Washington, the second of four children born to Cal and Ethel Crook, I lived in Chehalis, Washington 10 years, moved to Hawaii and lived there 7 years, then moved to the Phoenix area and have been there ever since.

A variety of jobs made starting Office Support Services in 1992 fairly easy. Focus on presentation of all kinds: visual, print, websites, resumes, business communication.

Also specialize in photography, doing redigitizing.

I have a large family of Crooks, Simpsons, and Vorfelds, and these people are all absolutely the best. And I have two superb cats: just ask them!

Love to read, take pictures, watch TV, visit with people in person and online, advocate for people with disabilities, and work in the yard (hey, I have a lot of gravel in my yard), along with traveling to visit family members and friends.

I'm a connector of people, an encourager, and always looking to see what's ahead.

Have four "kids": Ron Simpson, Shannon Patrizio, Ted Vorfeld, Peter Vorfeld

Dear [ ]: I’m sorry. I’m sorry to have ruined your day, angered you, or caused your supervisor to watch you closely. I know what bad days, frustration, and job pressures feel like. It wasn’t my intention to cause you problems. It may not feel like that to you, but it’s true. I know that …

A rather long post for Seth. :-) Those times are over unless probably in the public sector. What do you think?

Bittersweet story of a boy (severely autistic) and his dog (service dog). I've been following this family almost since the day Logan Erickson brought his dog home to Alaska, in part thanks to DeeDee Jonrowe. http://www.adn.com/voices/2016/06/19/how-one-special-dog-helped-calm-the-storm-of-autism-in-a-western-alaska-boy/
For six years, Juke the yellow Lab has helped Logan Erickson do everything from sleep to socialize. Now they have to say goodbye.

By BodyLogicMD Admin According to a recent survey conducted by The North American Menopause Society and presented at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine 2015 Annual Meeting, 60 percent of clinicians are prescribing bioidentical (compounded) hormones for the treatment of menopause. The results don’t come as surprising news considering that patient demand for bioidentical hormone … Continued
