For My Little Sister


http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/theneworleansadvocate/obituary.aspx?pid=185321414Kelli Sue Griffin, age 38, passed away on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at West Jefferson Medical Center in Marrero. She was born May 28, 1978, in Marrero, to Gary and Patricia (Plaisance) Griffin. She was a 2005 graduate of Louisiana Technical College and a self-taught artist. She worked as an Administrative Assistant with West Jefferson Industrial Medicine, where her coworkers fell in love with her. Kelli’s many passions included painting, sculpture, and arts and crafts. Her greatest strength was her determination to finish whatever she set out to do, no matter how hard the task. Her biggest flaw was not knowing just how special and irreplaceable she was. She is survived by her mother, Patricia; her sisters, Tammy Gegenheimer and Karen Williams; her two brothers in-law Larry Gegenheimer, Jr. and Darrin Williams; her nephew Gary Lapoint; her niece Hannah Gegenheimer; her aunts Elda Olsen, Barbra Houillon, Rosemary Plaisance, Linda Plaisance, and Sally Griffin; her uncles Melvin Plaisance, Jr., Julian Plaisance, and Bryan Griffin; and many cousins. A visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 10, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM for family, and 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM  for all others at Mothe Funeral Home, 2100 Westbank Expressway, Harvey. Visitation will be followed by a memorial service in the chapel at 11:00 AM. DO NOT SEND FLOWERS. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Kelli’s name to the charity of your choice.

Five Things You Didn't Know Could Happen During a Massage

Everyone likes a good massage. Well, almost everyone. There are some that cringe at the very idea of being naked in a room while a total stranger rubs them down. These people are either crazy or have never had a massage before and don't know what they're missing. There are also the ones that like massage a little too much and should feel free to do to themselves what they erroneously believe they are paying me to do to them. Also, read item number 3 of this blog article I wrote in November of 2012 and follow the instructions therein.

But for those of you who are just looking for a nice, perfectly innocent, legal, and in no way rage inducing way to relax, massage is the way to go. That said, there are a few things you should be prepared for before getting that first massage. Things such as...

I once had a client come in for a deep tissue massage who must have eaten a very big, extremely gassy meal right before climbing onto my tab…

Top 5 Things That Drive Your Massage Therapist Crazy

I recently read an article titled 8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know. After reading it thoroughly, I've come to the conclusion that the LMT's (licensed massage therapists, for those of you not in the know) interviewed either haven’t been in the business for very long, or really hate their jobs. For example, one of the items mentioned that most massage therapists get scared when their clients snore. I don't buy that. I think if a client is relaxed enough to fall asleep on my table, I'm doing a damn fine job. Isn't snoring like applause for massage therapists? It is to me.
It got me to thinking of my own personal pet peeves though, so I tried googling Things Your LMT Hates or Things That Drive Your Masseuse to Drinking, but these searches provided no useful data, and quite frankly I’d like to know what insane, perverted monkey Google put in charge of their search engine for me to come up with this list:

Since Google failed me miserably, I thought I wou…

Baby Steps for New Authors by Guest Blogger and Author, Emerian Rich

Baby Steps for New Authors
I’ve spoken to hundreds of authors over the years... new, old, mid-career, famous, struggling, you name it. One thing we all have in common is that we were all once where you are. We know how it feels to submit your first work and wait with high hopes by the mailbox (or email inbox) for that special editor’s reply. We know about declines and how sometimes they seem so crippling, you don’t even want to continue. The other link that many new writers have is they are timid and shy about their careers and marketing the “way the pros do it”. Well here are some Baby Steps to get you started.


1. Convince yourself you are an important writer and have something valid to say. Once you’ve accepted your fate as a writer and know you have no choice but to follow your dreams, it will be easier to chip away at making those dreams a reality.


2. Start a List. Lists are your best friend for brainstorming promotion ideas. Carry a little notebook with you to brainstorm while wai…
