Go to - Cutting Back on Unnecessary Travel

Our company has grown over the year and with that has come the need to communicate information affordable. Recently our Corporate Marketing Director announced that he would be having our first web conference.

I'm so excited. Since the days of working for West Corporation, web conferencing has been they used to re-train, update policies and procedures to a large group, that live in other areas. The group is assigned a phone number and website link, time and date of the meeting. It does require that you RSVP. You sign in for the meeting and follow the instructions.

West Corporation used Go To Several features include video and audio, slides and my favorite questions and answers make the meetings interactive. It gives the recipents the ability to attend meetings from anywheres - home, office, or hotel.

Companies also have the opportunity to save recordings for review or for those who could not attend.

With our economic climate asking all of us to take another look at expenses makes alot of sense for large and small business.

My Dress Choice

Here's the dress that I choice for our renewal ceremony today! - Cancel Your Cable

Heres's a money saving idea for you - cancel your cable. Now, don't worry about missing your favorite TV shows because many of them are now available full episodes online! offers a great variety of TV shows, current and cancelled. Charles and I watched a cancelled TV series, "Peacemakers", starring Tom Berringer, as a Marshal Jared Stone, who approaches crime solving in the old ways. His partner is Peter O'Meara as Detective Lamier Finch who brings science to solving crimes.

And this was one of the good ones. Bummer! We would love to have seen some more of this show.

We're Renewing Our Wedding Vows Today!

The day has finally arrived! I'm actually very calm and why not? I've already done the original and this is just a refresher. The huge difference is that our family is doing much better financially, older and wiser.

We've had some rough years but when I think about I'm so honored and proud that we did it together. It really does make you stronger.

I also want to thank our Heavenly Father, for being our guide and supporter. We are truly blessed everyday!

Friends and family - we love you all!

Charles, Rona and Marcus
