      Manhattan Beach, CA
      310-318-0900         It's arrived, 2011 is here! I don't know about you, but when we begin a
                                  new year, it is like a blank canvas. It is a license to look back at all the
                                  accomplishments of last year and begin thinking about all the new ones
                                  for the new year, and then to "Just do it!". It can be stealth, but we
                                  guarantee you - over the next twelve months, if you just create a little
                                  list, that in the end you will find that most of the items will eventually be
                                  checked off.

                                  Books can give you inspiration to make some meaningful changes in
                                  your life. Becoming healthy, organized, fit, financially stable, happy, a
                                  good parent, an excellent chef, training a dog - whatever it may be that
      Thursday Jan 13             interests you, chances are you may be able to get jazzed by reading a
      Constance Dunn              book about it.
