Jill ! I recently have had a surge of spa/salon's connect with me ....we do have a seven product skin care line within teh 45 products of wellness....but I guess I am a bit "surprised" at the inquisitions?  It seems seaweed and aloe are key to them?  If you have any insight on this would love to learn more from an expert on skin care!

Thanks for the kind words Jill. You should have your stepmother pop over to my website. Maybe something there might give her some inspiration or help.

There are so many articles on medicines, alternative treatments and things. Also, I would love to chat with her.

My blogs are really my lifeline. It's the reason I get out of bed every day. Lately it's been getting harder and harder.

My hands are getting worse and I thought about closing some of then down but I just couldn't do it.

No, I don't have millions of readers. But if my blog helps 1 person, then I have served my purpose.

Anyway, thanks again and I hope you and your family are all doing well.
