if your mind can conceive it, you can achieve it

  "Hi Jodie...I went to your website & looked at all the pictures and read all the articles and interviews and, I swear, I got up from this computer feeling like there was NOTHING I couldn't do.  You're an inspiring person, Jodie.  You have all the qualities I love in people - men or women:  Brains, brawn, beauty, drive and unstoppable ambition.  Superpower :-)  Emma"

  American Indian Ten Commandments:

      1. Treat the Earth and all that dwell thereon with RESPECT

     2. Remain close to the Great Spirit

     3. Show great RESPECT for your fellow beings

     4. Work together for the benefit of all mankind

     5. Give assistance and kindness wherever needed

     6. Do what you know to be right

     7. Look after the well being of mind and body

     8. Dedicate a share of your efforts to the greater good

     9. Be truthful and honest at all times

     10. Take full responsibility for your actions


  When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
    When the road you're trudging seems all up hill;
    When the funds are low, and the debts are high
    and you want to smile, but have to sigh;
    When care is pressing you down a bit-
    Rest if you must, but do not quit.

    Success is failure turned inside out;
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
    And you can never tell how close you are
    It may be near when it seems so far;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
    It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.


  If you don't keep walking you will never get where you're going.

    Don't wait for someone to stop and carry you, you may weigh them down and you both could fall.

    When you think the walk is too steep, press on, for there is no mountain that can't be climbed.

    When you see someone fall along the way, lend your hand. If someone lends you a hand, reach for it, to help you get back up again.

    Hand in hand, together- each one helping the other can make this journey as precious as the place that we are all striving for.

        "Right on!"


  "Hey Jodie, Thanks for the picture...it's cool.  My niece saw it (she's 4) she said wow!!  It was cute.  After I explained what kinda bike it was, she asked if she could do that when she grew up.  I said sure, why not?  She got soo excited she went and rode her bike all day, and said she was practicing.  Ha!  That's funny.  Anyway, thanks.  Hope to see you again.  K....bye!  Krys."   

    "Yes!  Awesome!  Go gurrrl!"
