Mary has worked for me for 30 years. We are kind of like sisters and so when she was diagnosed with breast cancer last year it was a very difficult time. Now she's back in the hospital for reconstructive surgery and she's doing well.
When Tanya Tahir submitted this Tube and Card set using SRM's Thrive Quick Card I wished that she lived nearby and we could send it to Mary. I love everything about this project. Mary would love it since she loves chocolate and Tanya put mini Oreo cookies inside the Mini TUBE. What a darling combination.
It's amazing how far medicine has come in treating breast cancer. Each of us has people we know who have valiantly fought this disease. Mary is one of them. She is in my thoughts and prayers.

When I was a child, my mother, who was from Vermont, loved Macintosh apples. It was the only kind of apple she bought. I never really liked them but they were my apple and so I had a very early connection to the Macintosh.
When I graduated from UC Berkeley I headed back to Southern California to work for my father. He was an inventor. His Patent Attorney (and now mine) was Ed Taylor. One day Ed in the 1980's told me that he was moving to Northern California because he had been hired by Apple Computer (yet another Macintosh) to be their patent attorney. From that day forward I loved Apple computers.
In the early 1990's I got my first Apple computer because John brought one home from school to do his grading. It was a Performa. I was thrilled. I taught myself word processing and connected to the internet. I thought that this was as good as it gets.
In 1993 I was shocked to see an ad for Apple Computer where one of my products was featured. At that time SRM made pens and pencils with toppers. In this ad there was a little girl using my Star topper on a pencil sprinkled with stars. You can imagine my surprise and pleasure at this!
In 1995 I got my first new Mac and have been upgrading ever since. I think I'm due for a new one and I can't wait to get my hands on one and see what new things my computer will be able to do.
When I heard the news of Steve Jobs resigning for health reasons I was surprised by my reaction. I was stunned and profoundly sad. But then I realized that for many years I have felt connected to his company and to his products and to his genius. But it is more than that. I have been inspired by him. By his creativity, his passion and the extraordinary person that he is.
God bless Steve Jobs in his struggle with his health. He has taught all of us so much and in so many ways enriched our lives. If you never heard the commencement speech that he delivered at Stanford University in 1995, I encourage you to view it on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc
I for one intend to take his advice.
1. Love what you do (i Do)
2. Your time is limited so don't waste it. (i know)
3. Follow your heart and intuition. (i am)
Most of all as I continue down the road, I intend to be adventurous, stay hungry, and stay foolish taking chances and loving what I do.
