The last few months have been tough.
One of the chemotherapy regimens with which I was being treated stopped working last autumn and my oncologist switched to a new drug. It didn't like me very well and I was very sick as a result of taking it. Although I took it for only a few treatments, the results have lingered for several months. For awhile, I was sick and having to go to the ER over and over.
Fortunately, I'm past that, now, and I'm feeling quite a bit…Continue

For the last two years, I've been saying on Murphy Connections that the site is made possible by the Murphy Gold Site Sponsors who pay so that it can be free for all the people who interested in Murphy, NC .
Today, I replaced the Google Adsense ads in the right column of every page on Murphy Connections, with photos of, and links to, the Site Sponsors who make it possible.
Thank you for your trust and support of Murphy Gold and Murphy…

I have been keeping an eye out for employment opportunities...I have an MBA degree, a Personal Trainer Certification, and computer/web design/social media experience. I also write and am a stickler for excellent customer service.
My husband is looking as well. He has a law degree, law enforcement experience, and is a certified personal trainer, too.
We are both willing to try something new and are fast learners. Let me know if you hear of anything!
“True friendship consists not in the multitude of friends, but in their worth and value.” by Ben Jonson
We all like to be the life of the party and we like to feel wanted, and the more people who seem to like us, the better.
Still, we recognize who our true friends are-and we don’t have so many of these. They are the friends who don’t wait to ask what they can do when we need help. They’re the friends who tell us the things we don’t want to hear, but need to hear anyway. They’re…

My daughter is an Army Wife, and has since moved from Colorado to Louisiana. My son-in-law is a Staff Sargent in the Army. They have 2 wonderful children, my grandchildren. My daughter has to always watch their budgets and they still have to feed a family of 4 on the budget of 2, so in order to gain the biggest bang for her bucks, she does extreme couponing. Most times she can go grocery shopping and gets up to 100% return on her spending, which means a lot of times she comes out of the…Continue

Wow, how time flies when you are or are not having fun!! The latest news is we just might have a buyer by next weekend.

In fact they are going to their financial advisor on Monday and they are planning to visit us on the weekend and stay with us on the farm to discuss the sale.
We are so excited and all we can think to say about it at this time is "It's About Time". We have had…Continue
Ever feel grumpy or unhappy? Get up from your chair and take a quick walk in nature. Look for signs of nature's beauty as you walk. It will cheer you right up. A sunny day, a light breeze, a temperature perfect for sitting outside without a jacket-such days make us feel happy, at peace with the world, grateful.
Walking in the rain, making snow angels, or watching the wind whip the trees also can make us feel happy. Nature keeps us grounded in what's real. Winter will balance summer,…Continue

Back in late 2009, I released a novel entitled "JUICE."
More recently, after much editing and fine tuning, that novel was re-released. Why mention it? Well... in addition to some shameless self promotion... I wanted to remind everyone that JUICE takes place in Murphy! And even though I moved away in 2010... I still love Murphy and always will.
Based on real locations and people, over 97% of my readers have asked for a sequel (in the works). JUICE…Continue

Nature Deficit is the human cost of alienation from nature. While it isn't an official medical term, it is an ackowledgement that there are health effects on individuals and their communities when a connection with nature isn't present in young people.
Repeated studies show how kids with existing medical conditions such as obesity, depression and attention-deficit disorders, receive great healing of their symptoms with increased exposure to and connection with nature.

From the What Went Wrong, JD? Department -- I apologize to anyone who received the old Murphy Gold News issue from November 2009 this morning. I was changing the newsletter in order to send out a short notice about publishing new issues and I sent the old one by mistake. I'm really sorry. I'll do my best not to do it, again.
Now that I'm feeling better and have more energy, I'm looking forward to working with the owners of the businesses featured on Murphy Gold to bring you…Continue
Well it has certainly been a while since I last posted on here, and I must say, shame on me. I have been busy with other things and for that I am truly sorry that I have neglected everyone here.
Some sad news, my mother passed away this past Friday and her funeral service was on Sunday. I could not be there, but in spirit I was. In fact I actually did my own service here in my special room. I celebrated her life rather than her passing. She was…Continue
