A book about a woman in Oregon living the counterculture life.

 My paperback book "The Eve Chronicles" included three books, "From the Waters of Coyote Springs" "Felix and Eve" and "The Arrangement" all three also available seperately as e books. After 35 years in service to people with disabilities I am now disabled myself with Multiple Sclerosis, but it's a good story, one day while I was cleaning out my closet I ran across my journals from when I first moved to Oregon and worked as a timber cruiser in eastern Oregon doing timber surveys, living in my tent in a camp with other foresters. As I read the journal i thought" Wow this could be made into a book, and that's when I started writing., "From the waters of Coyote Springs.
"Felix and Eve" is when Eve moved to the Oregon coast to spend the summer with an elderly man who just had heart bypass surgery and needed a live in caregiver. At first he was rather cranky but before long them started a relationship that some would say was unique. At night while they played cards Felix started to tell her about his younger days when he worked for the notorious Al Capone. A heart warming yet funny story.
The last book "The Arrangement" is about the now retired, baby boomer Eve who now owns property on Moon Mountain in Eugene, Oregon. Vinnie her old friend lives in a yurt in her back yard. Every year she gets a letter with a skeleton key in it and heads down to Catalina Island to take care of an old friend and lover who has MS.

Will Oregon lead the way to limit gun ownership to people who are involved in Domestic Violence?

Oregon legislative is trying to pass this much needed bill that addresses gun ownership.
    SB 525 - Preventing Gun Violence in Domestic Violence Situations: This bill will protect families by bringing Oregon laws into alignment with federal laws prohibiting gun possession for perpetrators of domestic violence. SB 525 prohibits the possession of a firearm or ammunition by most people who are subject to a restraining order or who have been convicted of certain misdemeanor crimes involving domestic violence.
Let's hope this bill gets passed,just in time for Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.

Walmart forced to remove the Made in the USA logos.  Once again the big Walmart corporation gets called on deceptive labeling of products that were not made in the United States, wish they would promote women to higher positions and higher wages. Walmart's all about what they can make off the backs of part time workers, women who earn less than men do.
