So, you’re one of them! Congratulations! You can find the post here: http://wp.me/p2TeFs-KP ! Take care.

  29. Hi August,
    After signing up for BOAW Fest, I took the time to read some of your posts. Just read “Does Dirt Have Calories” – powerful! And I will be watching Miss Representation, and then sharing it with my daughter. Thank you for running BOAW – it’s so important for us to change how we view ourselves!


  30. Greetings from a far away land,
    I really enjoyed reading about your life’s journey which has been quite interesting and led you down many paths. I love the fact that you are attempting to help people deal with Alzheimer’s disease through nutrition. The ability to give of yourself in the service of others is a beautiful act and gift of love. I sincerely wish you all the best wherever your life’s’ journey leads you.
    God bless you in every way.

  31. I nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award. Feel beautiful! 🙂

    The Hook sent me your way, great to find you! Very much my cup of tea, I look forward to reading through your blog 🙂

    Take care, all the best!


  33. Receiving the mail this morning, informing me you are now following my blog, I naturally popped over to see what you write. I read you post on handling bad reviews, and really liked what I’d read. Next stop, here, and a quick thank you for following my blog, not many words on mine more photos, but I hope you will enjoy what you see.
    In return I follow you, as we all think we have a book in us, and I’m busy with two at the same time. Will they ever be published? I doubt it, as I think they are more a type of therapy for old age creeping up on me. But I do think I can learn from those that can, and it certainly seems that you can.
    So the Bulldog joins your family of followers, tongue in cheek sometimes, but always prepared to learn something new.
    Thank you again for following me, even though it is because of a boob cancer post, but then people do meet in the most oddest of places…

  34. Hi August!

    Great blog! I just came upon it and I’m very happy I did. You have a new follower. Your writing is excellent!

    Much continued success!

  35. Sorry, August, I couldn’t find any other way to send you a message via email or whatever.
    I just read this article and thought it sounded like something you would love to post about at some point in the future:
    Just a thought.

  36. I like your blog, August! This will be a favorite for me. I’m an action thriller writer. Sincerely, Vic Tomlinson
