With the negative issues around this 2020 presidential election
a special prayer came to me. That is why this is first on this page.
I have created it as a graphic so you can post it in FB. The devil
cannnot read the mind of a Christian or those who believe and trust
in God but the devil hears what you speak aloud.

CHRISTMAS PAGES: This drop down menu has pages in my website and
some take you out of my website. They are added because I believe them
to be very entertaining. The ones in alphabetical order are in my website.
The next ones take you out of my website. There are games to play, how
Santa School was started in the USA, Military entertaining with song and
dance at a train station and more!
In my website you can Email Santa and get an instant reply before your eyes.
You can print the reply. Bookmark that page and pass it on. Adults can email
Santa too, I do it every year. There is a Christmas Tree Jukebox!

The next poem is about an impostor on Senior Friend Finder,
a Match Maker website. There was more than one impostor
with several ads and a hacker I was able to "capture."
There is good advice that can apply to any online social
media plus a link to Staying Safe Online. It's worth reading.

Updated: My husband, Alfred, participated in over two dozen triathlons and
placed at every triathlon. Alfred began competing at age 67 and ended at age
76. His career ended with the world triathlon finals in London England. Being
placed on a blood thinner is why he no longer competes.
NOTE: I took photos at all of the triathlons except the one in California.
He went there alone. Some people have said I was just his cheering section.
That is a false statement. There is a video online in YouTube for the 2013
WORLD SPRINT TRIATHLON FINALS IN LONDON ENGLAND. I am a photographer.
Read the credits for that video and look for my name on one of the swan photos.
There are links to other pages for him on this page.
What an accomplishment for a 76 year old!

There is a bookmarker that Praises God and a Praise God photo
that can be printed as a 5x7 or an 8x10, plus a Prayer for the
Youth Bookmarker. There are several bookmarkers per page. They
are pdf documents so you can do a save as. It is best to print
them on photo paper, cut them out, and pass them forward.
FYI: The Praises God Prayer is framed and hung in an exam room
at Texas Oncology in Tyler, Texas, per request of a cancer
doctor. Share these please.
Praise God Bookmarkers
Praises to God prayer to print as a photo. Do save as and put in folder
of choice. Then print as a 5x7 or an 8x10 photo to frame.

The next poem was writtin by Dan Clark in 1999. It is
inspiring and has gone around the internet as annonymous
when it is not. It was first published in "Chicken Soup for
the College Soul." I first uploaded it in 2005.

Hurricane Gustav on September 1,2008 was followed
by Hurricane Ike on Sepember 13, 2008. Tropical Storm
Edouard was on August 12, 2008. That is a reason for
moving away from the coast. Do the math, in one month's time.

Yester-me Yester-you Yester-day by Ann Sullivan
Genealogy has been a big part of my life since 1999. My brother did the
Y-DNA test and I did the mt-DNA test and Family Finder with Famiy Tree
DNA plus I also tested with ancestry.com. My husband tested the mt-DNA
and Y-DNA with FT-DNA; however, I did a deep clade for my brother and my
husband because they matched with only twelve markers. Two of my cousins
also tested on FT-DNA. My son tested with 23andme. However, ancestry and
23andme do not actually do DNA testing. They do autosomal which is similar
to Family Finder. So matches may not be actual DNA matches but someone
in your family tree somewhere, be it close relative or an ancestor.
Recently I learned that Heritage DNA testing and Ancestry DNA testing
have been hacked. The only DNA testing company I endorse and trust is
Family Tree DNA out of Houston. They cost a lot more than the other
companies but they are trustworthy and do extensive testing. Read their
The first link is a research article I wrote for the Goodrich Family
Association Newsletter like a small magazine. It was in the newsletter
they enetered in a National Family History Writers Competition. My
article did not win but the newsletter won third place. That excited me
because they judge on organization and content. The article is in
pdf format for easy downloading. It is listed on my genealogy page.

My article about four union soldiers buried in the Nashville National
Cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee was printed in the Goodrich Gospel

December 16, 2010. This is the article. Elizur Goodrich, Isaac Goodrich,
William Goodrich, and Harvey Goodrich. The cemetery is actually in
Madison, Tennessee which is just east of Nashiville. The article is on
page 71 of this issue. There are a few photos.

I learned about the website listed below from a posting in the
Friends_of_US_2nd_Infantry_Division_WWII which I am a member of.
You have to be a member to post and view posts. This may be a good
genealogy website for those who had family members who gave their
lives in WWII.
"The website of the Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse
Oorlogsgraven (Foundation United Adopters American War Graves) in
the Netherlands, which was founded in July 2011. The purpose is for
people to adopt a grave to keep the memory and honor of those who
gave their lives.
We also aim to help other adopters and relatives in their research.
Therefore, you will find on our website various tips on where to find
and request information on American soldiers who served in World War
Two and who gave their lives for freedom."

I experienced PTSD after a major car wreck. It lasted for years.

PRINCESS and SERVICE DOGS section
It's a very long section with a lot of information.
Documents for Pet food issues, service dog permit and
how to nebulize a dog are all online for download.
Best Friend - about Princess
On A Wing and A Prayer With No Spare
Princess' Hawaii Diary and Quarantine
Princess lost her eye sight due to the tainted dog food from China.
So when she stopped in front of the huge mirror disk at the Babe
Ruth Museum in Kentucky, it was with amazement and curiosity
why. There must have been some light coming in for her to stop
and look. This page is linked to download the words.

Pet Diet Information
Please note that not all animals can become service animals
without professional training. Guide dogs and mobility dogs
must be professionaly trained. Your doctor has to sign the
document but first must be fully aware of what your dog is
capable of and convinced the dog does perform the service.
I believe the law now is the service animal must be a dog.
Check with your states laws regarding service animals to be
sure they don't have to be professionaly trained. Princess
was a seizure alert dog. Friends and neighbors told me what
Princess would do before a seizure. I began to pay closer
attention to her so I could get to safety and not fall. She
was very much in tune to my body which helped me to learn
my auras. From research I learned that the success rate for
training seizure alert dogs is about eighty percent. The
dog needs to be very fine tuned to its owner. Princess
most definitely was fine tuned to my body and needs.
It is also important to note that a service/guide dog must
wear a service/guide dog vest. The vest with Service Animal
on it helps eleviate problems. Some vests have pockets.
You may read about them here:
Why Your Service Dog Should Wear A Vest
There you may also read and learn about the proper dog collar
and vest for the service your service dog provides. The first
vest I purchased for Princess was of a solid fabric. But living
in a hotter climate she needed something cooler. So I purchased
a vest with mesh inserts. A harness collar is better than a
regular dog collar. There is more control of the dog with such
a collar. You have probably noticed that guide dogs have
harnesses. Service animals must be kept clean and be current
for all vaccinations.
I carried Princess' service animal permit in a pocket of her
vest but it also included the purpose she served. So that was
private medical information about me. It is illegal for anybody
to ask for your medical information. However, it had to be shown
when we were going to fly somewhere. At a cafeteria in Texas a
food inspector told me to leave. She said to show her my medical
records. I told her to show me hers and I would show her mine.
It was illegal for her to ask. I reported the incident and her
employer had to train all his employees with reference to
service animals in public. Never allow anybody to intimidate you.
I never sued. I always did arbitration. Princess and I educated
a lot of people and businesses.

Note: Princess became very ill. The emergency doctor said he
would write the prescription for the Albuterol if I can get
instructions on how to nebulize a dog. I conferred with a
doctor in Michigan and one on the ineternet and came up with
the instructions which are in this next pdf document. I had
a large dog crate and already had the nebulizer for myself.

While living in Hawaii I became a member of the Coalition
to End Quarantine. We succeeded in our mission. The next
links take you to six testimonies with one being mine. They
are all in pdf format. When I was still living in Hawaii
I testified in person. After moving back to the states I
had to write and fax my testimony which is what you will
read from the documents below. I was the one who found
the world compendium. The dates are a bit confusing to me.
I don't remember why the different dates. Maybe we later
had to fax what had been already sent. We had members
all over the world. I praise God for my gift of words.

Next is a link to one of my profiles. Later I will be uploading
photos of different things I have done. My clown character,
Crystal, was born at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Kalamazoo,
Michigan. While still living in Michigan I studied Middle Eastern
Dance and performed. I also attended Christian Music Conferences
in Kentucky and the Fellowship Of Christian Magicians workshops
in Indiana. After moving to Hawaii, I studied the hula and performed
at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu. My instructor was one of the hula
competition judges, oh to be so fortunate. I have performed in seven
of our United States. Also, I did the upholstery on the aumusement
rides that used to be in the Fort Worth Stockyards. I even rode a
mule throuhout the stockyards and rode a camel, all while wearing
clown gear. Too cool! Throughout the years I did sewing and alterations
as a hobby. All of this will be on new pages to be uploaded. It's
retirement time with exception of photography, writing, my website,
and miming the crucifixion. My mime presentation is an original I
created. Would you like learn how to do it?
