Publisher’s Note

2nd Quarter 2017

Family and friends should always be honored and cherished!

Everyone knows that I write my publisher’s notes a month or two before the issue, so I will share the fact that I am waiting for spring, and warm weather. By the time you read this, if we are all lucky, spring will have arrived, with warm weather and beautiful flowers. I am flying from New Orleans on this little, tiny plane with all these huge big men that are returning from the playoffs. No, I didn’t go to ‘The Big Easy’ for the playoffs, and not even for the beginning of Mardi Gras, but to visit with my family for a celebration. I had never been to New Orleans, and had not really ever planned on going, if it had not been for my family quilting me in to coming for this event. I am very glad that my family did their job and poured on the guilt, and made me realize that life is short, and you should enjoy New Orleans, and you definitely should enjoy your family while you have them. Will I go back to New Orleans? YES, but not during festivals . . . because there is so much to see and enjoy that it should be taken in without rushing from parade to parade, and trying to do all the family things.

I am sure most of you have been there, but if you haven’t, you should definitely make the trip. It has so much to offer, and they are some of the friendliest people I have ever met.  It was amazing how fast they can clean up streets after millions of beads, trash, and crazy people exit at night. All cities should go down and take a lesson from these guys. Of course, be prepared to come back speaking just a little differently than before.

Make sure you tell our contributors that you read their articles in the Women’s Journal.  We were honored to have four lovely professional ladies on our New Castle front cover as part of our Business In Profile section.  Please see their complete profiles on Pages 35-37.

    -Thank You, Pamela Rizzo, Publisher
