So much more has happened since even last weeks letter! I hit #1 on Amazon and #2 on Barnes and Nobles National Best Sellers list, foreign rights, signing with a major literary agent and offers from major publishers. It's incredible and a total blessing from God!

I have even been told that this book is now considered a 1st edition book, thereby a collectable and valuable. Since this book will be out of print once the last copy goes and the publisher will put the new release out next year, this book has been selling like hotcakes as there are only so many copies that have been printed and this version will never be printed again.

At this point, Barnes and Noble and Amazon are the only places left with copies, all the stores have sold out! It's amazing! I just wanted to share with you to never give up and always pursue your dreams! Winning Points With The Woman In Your Life One Touchdown at a Time has been an incredible blessing to me!

At this point, because things are so busy and hectic, I will not be able to continue doing this newsletter on a weekly basis, only on a monthly basis. It takes a lot of work to get the job information and everything else up for you guys and I LOVE doing it, but right now it will be touch and go. I promise to do my best. Blessings. Jaci

Artist: Dennis Kyne
Title: I’m Not Resisting
Genre: Rock
Label: Independent
Website: http://www.denniskyne.com
CD Baby Link: http://cdbaby.com/cd/denniskyne2

What happens to a man that is in the Army for 15 years and he gets out five years before retirement, and then decides to start offering the truth about the military to those that will listen? If you can deal with it all the bullshit the military deals out for 20 years, you get to walk away from it and collect a paycheck for doing nothing the rest of your life. Well there has to be a damned good reason for a person to pack it all in with 75% of the commitment already fulfilled. Listen to this CD for the answers.

Dennis Kyne is one such person that turned his back on a fully benefited military retirement because his conscience would not allow him to see it through until the end. He needed to start again somewhere else, and start with the truth first. I believe in national security and our military but I do not support some of the senseless wars the U.S. has waged.

Kyne left behind 15 years of sacrifice to expose some of the awful truths about our military in a book called “Support The Truth,” a play on words from the commonly used “support our troops” motto. And now we have a musical version of his story, well part of it, in I’m Not Resisting. He communicates his tale through some hearty rock tracks. Some of the subject matter obviously pertains to his protesting activities and ensuing arrests, depicted on the cover of this CD. Switching between the acoustic and electric guitar, Kyne makes his way through 11 tracks of emotional fist waving at our government and military. In a bit of irony, our government wants us to support our troops but does not think twice about putting our brothers and sisters in harms way, even using them as guinea pigs in some cases. Kyne sings about all of this and the tragedies of veterans coming home changed forever. Some are insane and living like dogs on the street. These are the realities of war and our government likes to turn its head to this heartbreak. Kyne is not going to let it slide; he wants everyone to know what the truth is.

Besides rockin’ down the house, he gets his point across really well on this CD. If he is playing an acoustic number like the opener “All We Want Is The Truth,” sounding like Iggy Pop every step of the way, he has this high level of energy that bites like a pit bull and it hangs on without letting go. His message is so important that there is no time to waste in any song, and he makes the best use of his time. This is what you call optimizing your moment in the sun. Five of the tracks are crackling with spontaneity. They were recorded live at KZSU Stanford Live. The rest of the tracks sound live off the floor in the studio as well. The entire album has that feel, that gritty edge and undying tension that you would need in conveying such a message. This element turns out to be Kyne’s most reliable friend. He has a decent voice and his guitar playing is above average. It is a good thing because there is no way that this recording would have the meaning it does without the piss n’ vinegar of a hard-edged voice and some rockin’ six-string to drive it home.

He has some great support along the way from his comrades Shawn Packer (guitar), James Bradford (bass), Ryan Hoffman (drums), and Ward Reilly (percussion on track 1). You cannot make music this good without a little help and nobody knows better than Kyne.

Best tracks for my money are “All We Want Is The Truth,” “Scratched Out In Soul” and “Whiskey.” For me these are the songs that define Kyne’s purpose and meaning for making this CD in the first place. This CD is jam packed with powerful eye opening messages and good music to back it all up, when does it get any better or more in your face than that?

Toni Coleman - Ten Great Holiday Dates

Toni Coleman - Ten Great Holiday Dates

Dating during the holiday season can be a special treat. Of course, in order to fully experience this you may need to re-order some priorities and make time for yourself and your own personal needs. Don't give into the temptation to put your social life on hold until after the New Year. Manage those work projects and family demands in a way that leaves you open to try some of the romantic and fun-filled activities that are available at this time of year. The following 10 date ideas should help put you in the mood and may even inspire you to come up with a few on your own.

1.Have a "progressive" dinner together. Go to one place for your appetizer, another (romantic and intimate) place for your dinner; and then have dessert and coffee (nightcap), in a quiet spot with a beautiful view of holiday lights or other holiday views. Even better, go by limo, so you have all your time to focus on each other and don't have to worry about all the driving.

2. Take a holiday tour of historic homes in your area. Many areas of the country have these. Often they are done in the evening by candlelight. Afterwards, you can go for a walk and view the surrounding neighborhood lights and decorations. Finish with coffee in a quiet bistro.

3. Get dressed up and attend a holiday concert or play. You can spend a lot or very little on this kind of date, depending where you go for the entertainment. A nice little before or after meal fills out the evening.

4. Go and get hot chocolate with your date; then go look at Christmas lights or displays available in your area. Many places have dazzling displays that light up the night.

5. Go ice-skating together. Find a nice place, not too crowded. This brings out the playful side and encourages a lot of interaction with each other. Hold hands, show off, race- be kids again!

6. Attend a religious service together. This could be accomplished by going to a place of worship that one (or both) of you belongs to; or you could go to a non-denominational service. An evening service, followed by a supper in an intimate restaurant could fill you with a sense of well being and peacefulness.

7. Throw a small holiday get-together with a few other couples (or friends). Plan an activity such as trimming the tree or lighting the menorah. Be sure to serve festive food and drink. A bonus would be to have a secret Santa gift exchange. This would be where each person brings a gift ($10.00 or less). Everyone picks a number. Person with number one begins with first selection. Go through all the numbers and open each gift in front of the group. Exchanging is fine and provides some extra fun. Lots of laughs and very interactive.

8. Choose your or his/her place, stay home, rent old holiday classics, light the fire and cook a simple but festive meal together. Play holiday music while you cook. Then watch (a few if you like) holiday favorites together. Or, you can bake Christmas cookies or other holiday treats together while listening to music and enjoying the fire.

9. Work at a soup kitchen one day (meal) together. Sharing the experience of giving is a wonderful way to get to know someone and deepen a relationship. It is also a great way to get into the true holiday spirit. After the clean up, go for a walk followed by coffee or a nightcap.

10. Go to a planetarium (if one is nearby). Enjoy the spectacular winter sky together. There is usually a guided "show" that you can experience as you sit closely, (perhaps hand in hand?). Try to pick out constellations together as you walk back to your car. It is always nice to have an intimate meal afterwards.

See if you can add some ideas of your own to this list. Then put aside several evenings over the next few weeks and awaken those feelings of peace, joy and goodwill for others. Happy Holidays!

Sheryl P. Kurland - Grocery Shop Your Way To A Better Relationship! (Part I)

Buy What's love got to do with it?

Marshmellows Communication is more about listening than talking. It's difficult to talk when you're eating marshmellows. To become a better listener when your partner is talking to you, imagine you have a mouthful of marshmellows.

Handi-wipes We all make mistakes - mistakes are "germs" in a relationship. "Forgiveness" is essential to get rid of the germs. When you're partner hurts your feelings and apologizes, use handi-wipes to wipe away the germs, forgive and clean the slate.

Coffee Drinking a cup of coffee in the morning is a common routine, a daily "tradition," for many of us. Every relationship needs traditions to keep things lively. Picnics in the park, snuggling while watching your favorite TV show, Sunday breakfasts in bed - use your imagination.

Cracker Jacks In every box of Cracker Jacks is a surprise toy. Surprises make a relationship exhilarating and exciting. Surprise your partner by sneaking love cards in his/her suitcase when leaving for a business trip, planning a surprise weekend get-a-way, creating a romantic setting at home for an all- over body massage.

Leslie Karsner, PhD - GoRomance.com Mother Of All Offers

Wow, there's nothing better than a big bundle of romance...and I just found one.

My good friend Leslie Karsner, the Romance Coach over at GoRomance.com, is about to see her daughter get married.

A couple of weeks ago she asked her GoRomance.com readers to send in their wedding wishes for her daughter and future
son-in-law, who are getting married in about a week.

Well, the response was amazing. She received hundreds and hundreds of incredibly wonderful responses. Leslie made a gift-book out of them for her daughter. And she did something else... she posted them to a web page. You can see it here:
http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=310986

Reading those notes truly is inspiring and heartwarming. If you ever feel down or just want a love infusion, do read the notes on that site.

But keep reading, because this story gets even better...

You see, Leslie is so thankful to everyone who sent in those lovely wedding wishes, that she created a special "thank you" gift for everyone.

The gift is a huge bundle of her romance products. And then Leslie asked me if I would be willing to her big "thank you" gift with my subscribers.

Well, after reading all those notes I guess I was just plain inspired... so I agreed. But only if she would let me tell all of MY readers this entire story.

So be sure to go look at all those messages of love at http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/?af=310986

And keep your eyes peeled for an email from me - as soon as Leslie tells me where you can grab her "thank you" bundle, I will dash off an email to you to let you know where you can get it.
