Spotlight on Michael Jackson falls short on manners ...

Today I celebrate my 50th Birthday. I am truly grateful that God has brought me through another year, safe and sound. There have been bumps and bruises along the way, as I am sure there will be many more to come.

Immediately I started getting lots of friend invites from various men (none of which were interested in my products but… Continue
