Testimonials

Your Top 10 good newsletter today was so good.  It lifted my spirits more than any other issue. A couple items even choked me up. People need to know the good stuff that is happening, to inspire them to greater heights. We need to know that our efforts are paying off, that we can build a paradise -- and we’re doing it. Thank you for singing this from the hilltops... a most valuable, important service.
