  1. Great job, you have a great, positive energy! Congrats!

  2. You’re a great speaker! Loved the video.

  3. Hello..Thank you for the ‘like’. Your posting makes some excellent points. I feel once fear has made itself known..it has done its job..rendering it useless and debilitating. I feel this way about dwelling on any negative aspect of feeling or life. Good creates good..kind of thing..Peace Tony

  4. Thank you for the ‘like’ on ‘Snooty’. I did take minor poetic license..actually on reflection my Father wrote ‘Snooty’..the rest has basis in fact..Peace Tony

  5. You are a terrific speaker, really love hearing what you have to say.
