Introduction
Candice's successful writing career has spanned over 20 years. Her published books include, "Stealing Homes," and Thank You for Firing Me!." Before her career in journalism, she lost jobs as an insurance salesperson, a funeral director, a singing/dancing waitress and an ice-cream binging weight-loss counselor. Currently, she is a freelance journalist, writes grants for credit unions, dabbles in copywriting and speechwriting, and once owned her own successful public relations firm. Reed has also been a ghostwriter for a former president, which she really can't talk about. Reed has published more than 5000 business features, personal essays and travel articles in newspapers and magazines including; The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Christian Science Monitor. Reed recently took her own advice and sold her expensive California home and moved to a cabin on Lake Chelan in Washington so she could enjoy life in the new economy.

It was revealed this morning that someone had forgotten a bag down at Campland. We only brought two bags, one being a cooler and the other paraphernalia - nice word and thank you spell check- that the wife packed. Guess...

It became a very busy Sunday, as the patio filled up with relatives. Only five in all, but besides the Mother- in- law, they are a rowdy bunch. And I don't have a great deal of will- power and always join in the reinde...

I visited the big bro today. We bonded over the Olympics - watching volleyball. Sport is a great way to spend time when communication is difficult. We can enjoy just being together without speaking. Except, ...

Reality comes to roost on your doorstep even when one is a master at putting his head in the sand. This reality happens once a week when motor- home maintenance should be a priority. When your domicile has an engine and m...

Happy birthday to the AARP Poster boy!
The actual day before my Birthday. But as my wife has told me, " you treat every day like it is your Birthday." And that, ladies and gentleman, is a recipe for life. Simply succinct.

The wife was customarily up early grabbing party favors for the day. We were headed to Del Mar for Tacotopia, the races, and a concert. Long day in store - this is a marathon, not a sprint. Not for the weak of heart or l...
