15 minutes of fame

This day and age it seems that everyone gets their own 15 minutes of fame. After all, with cameras readily available and nearly everywhere, any of life's moments  - be it crazy, loving, insane or horrendous - can be recorded and sent around the globe in an instant. So, it seems only a matter of time before my children get their own 15 minutes of fame.

Here are some of the headlines you might see:
1. New Guiness Book record set for longest tantrum in a store
2. New store near Portland specializes in bathing bats
3. Toddlers caught breaking & entering for treats-think every day is Halloween
4. Local Toddlers hired as security experts
5. Two-year-old boy becomes youngest to win super ninja competition
6. Toddler girl hired as negotiator; doesn't give competition a chance to say no
7. Family purchases own ER room
8. Girl, 4, proves you can speak only in questions
9. Area bird farm brings together chickens, ducks, flamingos & penguins
10. Portland-area mom lobbies to have temporary insanity by toddlers recognized as health problem - establishes spa program for treatment

Portland's Rose Summit

I have a great passion for working with women to become stronger leaders who are making differences in their communities.  It is with this in mind that I share with you an amazing opportunity for Portland women: the Junior League of Portland's inaugural Women's Empowerment & Leadership Summit.

The Summit is a major fundraiser for the Junior League of Portland and all proceeds from the event support the League's community fund, the 1910 Campaign, with 100% of the money ra…
