Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.
Benjamin Franklin

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Very good indeed. I wish you, Georgie, little Cael and the rest of your family A Happy New Year with lots of pictures. For us, the fireworks brings a real problem because one of our dogs is completely terrified by it so we have to stay at home and inside to try to calm her down as good as we can.
