Life is an improv. You take what's handed to you and do your best to make it better. The key is to always look for the game. Surround yourself with positive people and keep things fun.


* Our thanks to Paul Draper and the wonderful Tomsoni & Company (Pam and Johnny Thompson) for helping to make our wedding so special. Check out this classic clip of their performance in 1977 here.

Worthwhile Charitable Organizations

ADAPT Functional Movement Center: This replaced Project Walk, a spinal cord injury recovery program located in Carlsbad. Their gym is filled with real special people - quads and paraplegic individuals working hard for hours each day through assisted exercise. Nothing else remotely like it anywhere in this region. Christopher Reeves participates in a similar type of rehab program. This type of specialized rehab costs lots of money and is not covered by many insurance plans.

Got Your Back San Diego: Did you know that right now there are over 26,000 children attending San Diego County schools who have been identified as homeless and food insecure? Food insecure means living without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.

Got Your Back San Diego is a food assistance program developed specifically for children attending San Diego County schools who have been identified as homeless and/or food insecure. Every week they deliver backpacks full of food to local Tri-City schools. Each backpack contains 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and a few healthy snacks, enough food to sustain a child throughout the weekend. On Friday afternoons, school representatives distribute the full backpacks to children in need and collect the empty backpacks from the prior week. Also included in each backpack is an interactive homework assignment to teach kids about food and making healthy food choices. Run by good, caring folk. Please support them.

T.E.R.I., Inc: The Training, Education, and Research Institute is dedicated to providing quality care and training to people with developmental disabilities and their families.

Based in nearby Oceanside, for years, they are in process of opening another campus on Twin Oaks Rd in San Marcos. Per their website, "the new campus will accommodate the educational, research and therapeutic programs operated by the agency, to include relocation of adult training and education programs, the TERI Learning Academy, The Country School, the corporate-sponsored childcare program, recreation and therapy programs, and community training facilities. Construction costs are estimated at $20 million."

If you look under their "Programs and Services" section of their site, you'll note that TERI offers so much for their students, 70% of whom are diagnosed with autistic disorders. It takes a caring and dedicated staff to do all that they accomplish. 

Government funding is getting tighter, yet the needs remain. And, new buildings don't come cheap...

The Elizabeth Hospice: Betty Bulen, R.N. founded this local organization devoted to providing comfort for the terminally ill, as well as support for their families. I was proud to be associated with this large group of very caring  individuals when I sat on their Board of Directors. Learn more about our programs at
