Special Talents

An important note about our friend and co-author, Kimber…

Kimber is in a trauma center in Scottsdale. She had an aneurysm on Tuesday. Her mom posted on FB that she hit a granite table & has stitches and a concussion. She must be very proud of her children, who kept their heads, called 911 where she was flown by helicopter to Scottsdale. Berleen spoke to Anthony, Kimber’s husband. She wrote me, “She's got 9 stitches in her head and a lot of bruising. She's gonna be fine. Her elbow, knee & back are messed up from the bounce... she's in ICU now but might be released tomorrow out of ICU.”

We ask that you have a good thought, or say a prayer for our good friend. We will update you on her condition here if there is further news to report. While I feel a bit odd posting this here, not doing so just did not seem right. Here’s to a speedy recovery!


UPDATE: 10 PM Wednesday August 4: Berleen just posted on FB that Kimber is back at her home. Thank you for your good vibes...

May Kimber be all better real soon. And it's awesome to know that her kids were there for her when she needed them so desperately.

Hi there!
I just stumbled upon this blog and read your questions :) very interesting!

One thing I'd like to share about this shopping cart thing, I keep hearing question on American radio, online, all over... Here in Italy they have a system which prevent people from leaving the carts around... Money!

You cannot get a cart without inserting a coin into a gadget that is attached to the handle/push bar thing of the trolley or cart as you call it... the coin mechanically releases a chain which is connecting your trolley to the one in front of it and so on... all in a row.

Once you have your trolley you go shopping and the coin is there all the time... when you are done you automatically return the trolley because there is some money in there (usually 1 or 2 euros) and by pushing the end of the chain into the gadget on your trolley the coin pops back out again! :)

So you hardly ever see a shopping cart-trolley thing hanging around the parking lot... they are always in a neat row one behind the other!

Magic what money can do! :p
