Genealogy is a science. But for people like Karen Batchelor it is a gift and well established skill. I met Karen online through her excellent site Mid Life is a Trip!

Her  genealogy site is a wealth of information on historical searches and how to do the searches. She also will coach you in the process. She also provides a deep well of information on African American history.

So go visit both sites but know that I am going to interview Karen in a couple of days so look for the audio.

Baby Boomer Friendly Online Business Success Training

Baby Boomer Friendly Online Business Success Training helped me to get deeper with blogging. It also, helped me to better understand other internet marketing strategies. I liked it because it was taught by woman who knows adult education principles. Also, she has over 3 decades of experiences, already making money on the internet and she draws pictures. Well she uses webinars to teach.

This is the perfect course for beginners online! With 8 modules and more than 75 step-by-step video tutorials, this is not only a comprehensive course, but one that is doable!

Now, hubby and I spent a few weeks, every week, in this comprehensive yet easy to follow and understand course. I wanted to share it with anyone reading this who wants to take it slow but learn fast. So check it out. The teacher is none other than Dr. Jeanette Cates! You can check out her course right here!

Family and Community of Somerset County is a non-profit agency, which has been in existence for more than 40 years. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of individuals, children, families and communities by providing professional family, mental health and addictions services and innovative community-based programs. 


Our two major programs are the Individual and Family/Mental Health Program which addresses a wide range of problem areas including anxiety, depression, suicide prevention and other mental health issues; behavioral and other acting out difficulties; relationship, marriage, and family issues; domestic; and family violence and the Addictions Program which addresses substance use/abuse (alcohol and other drugs) problems.


All counseling and psychiatric services are provided on a sliding scale basis and the majority of the clients have lower fees. Our agency has been the one of the few in Somerset County to consistently offer a licensed, Master’s level mental health/family clinician to the Spanish speaking population over the past three years.  The agency also has two part-time psychiatrists that the clients may see for psychiatric and/or medication assessment services as needed. In addition to word of mouth, other referrals include the local school systems, DYFS, Somerset County Probation and Court, and other agencies.
