Private Practice

I just got back from renting office space for my new therapy practice. I'm feeling really good! I've got my biz card and website all set up and now I have a good place to see clients (at least on Tuesdays, I hope to add a day or two once things get going). Also, I'm almost all set up to do phone sessions.
Now all I need are some clients! I've got a few brave volunteers lined up already, but I hope soon to be doing some public speaking on EFT (which I really enjoy) to drum up some business. I've also signed up for the third level of training in a few weeks, down in San Rafael. All systems are go.
If you don't know what the hell EFT is, here's a link to my other site Taproots. I've even got a little how to video up and running.

Last Thursday we hooked up with our Tumbleweed pals for Maya's 10th birthday party, at Screamin' Mimi's ice cream parlor in Sebastopol. It was really fun. We'd all just gotten over colds, so I was a little nervous about the kids eating ice cream (I sure as hell wasn't going to risk it!). But we survived.
It's really nice being included in a group of friends. Especially such nice ones.

How Do We Know Who Won?

I've been dipping back into the media stream this last week to hear about the New Hampshire primary. Anytime I hear the words 'unexpected' or 'surprising' or 'proved the polls wrong' my ears prick up.
Turns out that 81% of the votes in New Hampshire are counted on Diebold machines. The clip below shows poll workers being shown how easy it is to hack those same machines. One of them starts crying. The only thing New Hampshire tells me is that the power elite are choosing Hillary and McCain as the final contestants in their rigged election to come.
Sure it's possible they actually won. But they probably didn't. I can't bear listening to all the chattering pundits explaining the 'results'. It must be because Hillary cried, right? People start repeating this drivel and never question who counted the votes. We should all be crying.
