Bonnie & Greg Available to Help in These Challenging Times

Bonnie and Greg
We are here to help you see the blue sky again

Welcome to the Age of Global Disruption.

Like many of you, our plans A, B, and C evaporated with the Coronavirus lockdown.

We have to adapt. The meteorite has hit the planet. Many people, families, and businesses will be devastated by the likely global recession. Millions more will die of COVID-19 and its variations. Millions more will be on the streets or succumb to depression and suicide.

The dinosaurs will go extinct, while other life forms will adapt and thrive.

The blessing in all of this is that humanity needs to figure this out and help each other through this.

Greg Dixon

And some people will survive and thrive with this. Some will succeed by serving and others will succeed through exploitation.

Why We Are In a Position to Help

Bonnie and I have been working to learn skills and acquire tools to help people and businesses.

And we have a natural instinct to help others, even when we need help.

I will give you a recent example. Bonnie got in the car and drove to a grocery store to get groceries for a friend who is shut-in due to the coronavirus.

We are not sure how we are going to put gas in the car or pay for insurance or buy food for ourselves next month. But today we can help.

There is a lot of need right here right now. Many of you are shut in afraid and need a helping hand.

Bonnie and I will do what we can to help. And we can help in a lot of ways.

What We Can Do To Help

People in Isolation

  • Shopping for the necessities and delivering to your home. We will practice social distancing and safe protocols.
  • Cleaning
  • Gardening. We can help put in a Victory Garden which could be a lifesaver for you.
  • Package deliveries

Your Story

One of our services is to create personal, family, and business story productions.

Now maybe the time before the opportunity passes.

Business Transformations

Bonnie and I have a head start on many businesses in terms of being mobile and online.

Here is how we can help:

  • Transform your presentations from in-person to online with live streaming, social media, and webinars.
  • Video production. We teach people how to use video with what they have.
  • Adapt from in-person to online delivery of services through online courses, membership sites, and online delivery of services,
  • Help with copywriting and marketing to make the needed adjustment.

We have tools and expertise to take the right idea from start to generating hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars.

Maybe you have the right idea for this time?

18,000 Miles Between The Snow Line and the Alligator Line

In the last year Bonnie and Greg travelled over 18,000 miles or 30,000 kilometers trying to stay between the Snow Line and the Alligator Line, crossing both at times.  Here is Google’s map of our travels.

travel map

We have thousands of photos and perhaps a lifetime of stories to tell. See Google Map.

There and Back Again

The reason for the trip started with attending the American Writers and Artists Inc. (AWAI) FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair in Delray Beach, Florida following our wedding in Vancouver in September 2016.

We drove across and down America in an 24′ Class C Motorhome we call Classy with stops in Idaho and Colorado related to a video project.  With a fair amount of steady driving, we arrived at the event with two hours to spare after the 5,500+ kilometer trek.

Florida

The video project took us to the Miami area and Key Biscayne.  From there we headed down the Florida Keys to Mile Zero in Key West, since we were in the area.

‘Hey! Wait a minute, Greg! Isn’t Florida across the Alligator LIne?’ you may be thinking.

Why, yes it is.  You will find gators near the ocean in the South East and along the Gulf of Mexico.

For the record, we preferred to avoid places that alligators like because of the humidity.  Bonnie once lived in the Mojave Desert in California and I grew up in Lynn Valley, where you had to move out of the valley to learn that the sun did not always set at 4 pm and that cool cloudy rainy days were not the norm in other places!

California

Skipping ahead a lot, check out a fabulous video montage of San Diego and Southern California.

Coming Soon!

Over the next few weeks I will publish stories and photos of some of the highlights, including:

  • The Florida Keys
  • Key Biscayne, Florida,
  • Delray Beach, Florida
  • Savannah, Geogia
  • Metter, Georgia and the Beaver Run RV Park,
  • Lynchburg, Tennessee and the Jack Daniels Distillery
  • The Natchez Trace Parkway
  • Tupelo, Mississippi
  • Natchitoches, Louisiana
  • Many other places in Texas
  • Tucson, Arizona and the Desert Museum
  • San Diego, California
  • LA, California
  • Laws, Caliifornia
  • Bishop, California,
  • Napa Valley, Callifornia
  • Nevada City, California,
  • Virginia City, Nevada
  • Reno, Nevada
  • Genoa, Nevada

This post will provide links to articles and photos as I add them to this and other travel sites.

La Familia Cortez Restaurants in San Antonio

The RV park we were staying at in San Antonio recommended La Familia Cortez Restaurant in Market Square.  He said to come early as lineups started early.

Mariachi Bar

We arrived shortly after 4 pm, before the rush.

The restaurant is very festive, with bright colours and decor everywhere.

There was a Mariachi Bar to the left of the main entrance, and restaurant to the right.

The photos here were taken with my cell phone and the  evening rush had mot started yet.

Great Service

The servers wore great costumes, were fun, and provided great service.

Authentic Mexican Cuisine

Very tasty!

Mariachi Band

A group of musicians and singers roved around the restaurant, adding to the festive atmosphere.

Bakery

Leaving the restaurant was dangerous! By the front door was a bakery offering irresistible treats!

Bakery

We left feeling that we had a fabulous experience and will go back next time we are in San Antonio.

The walls are filled with photos of family members and famous guest, showing proud family history.
