Auntie Jane’s Niece™

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Aunt & NieceWe writers are well known throughout the ages to realize that “art imitates life which imitates art” and so on. Without question those of us lucky enough to be brought up and schooled in the classics come to accept that there are no new themes to be written about … All is pathos and ethos at the core and so here is a REAL life fable so to speak that should neither be found unique nor without precedence:

Opening Scene: Somewhere outside Philadelphia a woman is driving to law class early one weekday morning – real time first person narrative and reflective remembrances.

Oh My! Not another message from her!” Driving to law class and now feeling compelled to respond to this obviously unstable young woman … Should I call authorities or mental health professionals where she lives is all I could think en route to a full day of study and tasks. Being a person who cares about others – even though to say the most I am only “peripherally” even aware this person exists – it now seems incumbent upon me to do something to help this obviously obsessed with me individual even though her rants and pleads for both inclusion in my life and similar for her Mother are frightening in tone and intent. Well now I have another call – and just in time because Jane after all is the REAL Aunt of this scary person.

Hello Jane, very glad you called me this morning … As usual on a weekday morning driving to school and again receiving private Facebook messages from your niece that are very disconcerting – whatever should I do?” Pause, deep breath is all heard on the other end and then a surprising confessional – and let us say one that created even further concern for my and my husband and family well being and possibly even our safety – tragically the years that followed proved my concern more than appropriate. “What I have to tell you must not be repeated!” Jane begins and of course I remind her that in my blessed marriage we keep nothing from one another and so she must keep in mind that I will be sharing whatever we chat about with my husband. I assure Jane as we never gossip nor intentionally malign a person unless the authorities need to know neither my husband nor myself will repeat her conversation to others. Jane proceeds to tell me that her late Mother shared the fact that her Granddaughter (Jane’s niece) was born with some sort of learning and developmental disabilities – it seems the parents who are Jane’s brother and sister-in-law did not want others knowing. Well I ask Jane why tell me now? Jane explains that her reason is what I describe now frightens her too – I am surprised to say the least by this confessional tonality that now seems Jane’s determined method of communicating and that in of it self gives me reason for concern. My life policy is to while accepting of such things being shared possibly in good faith also to give consideration that these facts are not yet verified or documented to myself or husband – gossip not acceptable to me as REAL proof and yet things seem to now being adding up – still I refrain from any prejudicial conclusion. After all being born with a learning and developmental disability does not lessen character or does it in this case? Of course fact is such a person is often without ability to logically perceive reality – Oh My! I think it is all beginning to make sense.

I felt it necessary as did my husband to discuss what we had just learned with one of my dearest friends – a PhD. in Psychology – her and her husband being a couple we spent time with and felt comfortable confiding in and also a gal pal of mine who is a Psychiatrist. Both seemed equally concerned considering what Aunt Jane had told us and the young woman’s rants to me via private Facebook messages. Sure enough things went from bad to worse to disastrous as the niece, her parents and siblings – others – joined in with people who had already criminally vandalized our home, threatened my husband’s life and other unseemly and even illegal activities. Who could have anticipated how truly troubling the situation would become … Certainly not me.

As the years past Aunt Jane’s niece became more aggressive and more hostile – even confronting a published author who interviewed me when he graciously compared me to the late actress and humanitarian Audrey Hepburn. This now older and more delusional young woman lied and wrote she had “grown up with me” when in fact I only met her once briefly. She even seemed to imply she had known Hepburn in her admonishment that comparison to me would leave the actress insulted. It went on from there … Fancying herself a “internet ninja” posting either erroneous or made up or legally invalid information on the internet about myself and husband … Then either creating or being involved with two fraud and criminal activity Twitter pages. Out of obvious envy this woman and her Mother suggested that which was REAL on our social media pages not – angering my decorator, realtor and many more not to mention being additional reasons to sue her. There are many more documented incidents this young woman and her cohorts are involved with against myself, husband and family. But possibly most frightening was her blatant attempt to be me … Yes indeed she created a Twitter page like one of my own, wrote post as if like mine, etc.. Her physical appearance both denoting ill kept and slovenly lifestyle and rather vulgar cleavage and other suggestive posses with young men was found by some to be representative of the proverbial “slippery slope” toward a dangerous situation that we and law enforcement needed to consider in a serious way. Yes Aunt Jane’s niece was employed but even this seemed to be part of her unstable diatribe in that she continuously stated exaggeration of employment status and position.

And … ?!?

End Scene: Court Rooms, Book Readings and Interviews Across America!

So is this fable a salacious made for TV movie … Material for a horrid crime novel or the documented ongoing legal investigation of a very dangerous bully – the common and all too well known story of those that appear rather “normal’ but indeed are not only personally troubled but just one short step away from doing something heinous? You decide my dear readers and remember in law classes often Professors present the “you can not believe this REALLY happened” cases so as to inform and instruct future attorneys that human nature can and frequently is without an easy explanation and likewise not something even though you would prefer to ignore can ever safely do without dire consequences!

Hackers, Bullies, Terrorist and Miscreants

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Until you [me] admit you are the same and no better than us … We will …”

— Michigan woman, about me,  on Facebook

SecurityThreatNorth Korea or someone decides we the people of The United States of America can not see a less than spectacular film “The Interview” … Worse is the company producing the film, Sony, had all its internal and sensitive business computers data hacked and emails shared – making work product basically impossible not to mention causing relationships to be strained. Why? Well blackmail was the basic reason behind this but of course pure and simple it was an attempt to control others – to dictate and direct by whomever thought their right to reign supreme over all they decided was distasteful. Do we or Sony capitulate, fight back or seek legal recourse? Sadly Sony caved in and then voices were heard including President Obama’s that said “No – not us – nor we a free people will allow such manipulation!” Finally as my husband, I and support team have done for five years in our determination to thwart the efforts of miscreant bullies, the public drew a proverbial line in the sand … The movie was released and just as I have experienced those not previously supportive became champions of the cause.

Bullies are terrorists and the next incident by ISIL and Al Qaeda related individuals resulted in murder. Paris France was the scene of twelve cartoonist and editors being gunned down in their offices because others thought that the only solution and punishment to be accorded for that which was found offensive. The slaughter continued in a Paris Kosher grocery store when hostages were killed within hours … We Jews all over the world felt deep horror and remembrances of that which has been our plight throughout history – murdered simply because of who we are. I was targeted by nemesis also simply because of who I am and who they wanted others to believe I was … Out envy, hate and their insecurity my personal antisemitic nemesis targeted me for the last five years with both the ridiculous and dangerous – even illegal activity in effort to malign and worse myself, husband and family. Did they threatened our life – answer is yes in many REAL ways.

On the business front the Morgan Stanley employee who recently stole and released clients information is similar to what a Michigan man and his wife who I never met and my husband has not seen nor spoken to in over twenty years did [along with stalking, threatening and harassing]. This couple who has been under investigation and we are close to filing long worked on lawsuits against laughingly took since disproved, erroneous and old no longer factual information to display on Facebook in effort to silence my husband and I as well as make it seem we were other than REALLY are …Interesting is that the State of Pennsylvania where my husband and I live has themselves joined in effort to prosecute the man involved as he either hacked or used their since changed information as if factual. When his IBM employer was notified of his activity and our concern he possibly made them liable via using work computers they agreed to full investigation and review of his not adhering to their company “social computing guidelines“. There is much more that relates to my own struggle and successes that are similar in effort to defeat and have legally punished those just like the company employees who believe releasing either valid or erroneous – not verified information is either their right or only means to make their otherwise marginalized existences more important. Fortunately my publisher has contracted yet another book singularly on this topic after Court cases complete. Suffice it to say – all experts involved including Court Psychologist advising us agree along with their own possible personality disorders my nemesis are as terrorist in that they want to control that which and who they envy and hate … Their self righteous pretense laid exposed by their own life narratives and actions.

The serendipitous wonderful and very interesting part of what my and my husband’s miscreant nemesis did was use either false, not verified, erroneous and since changed information against us … We even arranged through interested venues legal “gotcha Trojan Horses“.  Results were as expected – they and others who confessed were inspired by these people [which makes them accomplishes] thought as one consultant described their attempted “reign of terror” would defeat us and somehow give them power … Same as terrorist believe. Quite the opposite happened … While living full and productive lives my husband, I and supporters [some professional, others personal and even very unexpected individuals] made a studied, organized and determined plan to push back and win against these individuals … We have and are winning and I since have decided to make as one of my life works helping others with less resources and support also defend and defeat hackers, bullies, terrorist and miscreants.

I need to thank so many individuals but also Facebook, Twitter, Go Daddy, Sprint and even IBM for their effort and in some cases direct action in helping my husband, I and attorney in pursuing both justice and resolution … It was hard work on my and my husband and attorney’s part – many hours in addressing and professional efforts [tracing, subpoenas and more] but not only has it been and more soon beneficial to us personally – it will as well others as we move forward with books and both national and international plans to make it illegal and unprofitable for enemies of decency to succeed!

NOTE: Every single word above is documented and legally verified – including a detailed dated timeline as proof of who was attacked [us] and who was guilty party [our nemesis] … Threats and harassment and social media rants and posts by nemesis ALL saved and stored on over 50 disks – copies in hands of attorney and many with law enforcement [as well as my publisher]. Both disks and all related documents stored both on laptops and in secure storage unit where management/company well aware of threats referenced above … We pay for this as we fear fire or worse considering the three then teenage children [one now deceased] of my husband’s ex wife [divorced 1995] criminally vandalized our home 2003 … The continued REAL threats and law enforcement/psychologist advise makes us concerned not only for our family safety but these legally important documents being stolen or destroyed by known group referenced here. So as you my readers can clearly understand while persevering and succeeding against this evil group of individuals, both vigilance and extreme caution has and will be taken. Trust me – as will be made clear through press coverage of legal proceedings and my book – what I describe in this essay is mild and certainly far from the full depth and width of the attacks and criminal acts against myself, husband, family and even friends. The totality is frightening – lessons beyond ones normal comprehension and still that which we, you and the world MUST address as modernity allows more and more attacks through technology … A gift of progress used by those either unstable or just pure evil individuals in ways destructive. It is incumbent that we, the victims, not fear our own REAL life narrative nor exposing these enemies of humanity – rally as my husband and I decided and in doing so rise to hero status so that you and future generations can live without fear!

Reindeer and Feminism

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

TerezaHoliday2012Most years I have gift packages not only sent but readied for delivery during the holidays … Food types that include candy, nuts and such. Always ecumenical as being Jewish with Muslim, Catholic and other among my many family, friends and colleagues has me well versed in the sensitivity of December festivities. These are not gifts of the personal nature but instead that which one sends or takes along to places and people who are part of ones life in ways important considering tasks and routines … The hairdresser, doctors, cleaners, banks, offices, etc.. So each year my car or that of my driver is loaded with these prepared goodies bought at one of my favorite gift venues and there is always a roll of labels which I address at each stop according to the relationship … Appreciation, fondness and the like. I am actually quite proud of this now many, many years practice I believe I originated to a certain extent.

A stylist friend gifted me what I call my Louis Vuitton reindeer antlers because they are the same beige and light brown combined colors as that designer’s ionic logo luggage, pocketbooks, wallets, etc. that I have owned for years. This rather unique head decor includes a bit of white fur and a bell here and there as well. Being a very secure woman who enjoys frivolity I decided that at each stop during holiday season a few years ago to place this adornment on my always professionally coiffed hair – no shame in wanting to garner an affectionate holiday chuckle or two I am sure you agree.

A few years ago my wonderful estate attorney told me I needed to attend a bank meeting concerning a rather large sum that would be distributed to me in coming years via a planned inheritance by my late parents … As this was a late Friday afternoon meeting, unfortunately my estate attorney gal pal would be flying to a family event in Florida and she felt as I just gotten A+ in banking law there would be no problem in my going alone. In addition to law school classes, my husband and I were equal partners in a business we had recently begun and I had no discomfort handling such meetings. So off I went dressed in my now plentiful business attire. I knew that a wealth management bank official who I did hospice volunteer work with at one time would be there so along with the goodies holiday gift package described above, I brought along a small more personal present for my lovely acquaintance.

Out of my car on a cold December late Friday afternoon … Gathered my briefcase, the two gifts and decided what the hell – on goes the LV reindeer antlers. My hospice volunteer friend greets me with hugs and thanks for small holiday gift I brought her, I am ushered into a boardroom with a long oval well polished wood table around which are seated four men – bankers and officials. Handshakes finished I am shown to chair at head of table and my foodie gift gratefully accepted and placed in center of long table – I accept the coffee and offer to take my coat. So it is the meeting begins – there is the get to know me chat part and somehow it is mentioned that my husband is well known computer expert, we have started a company, I decided to finish law school, go through extreme fertility treatments to have children, I am a writer working on books to be published asap and hubby and I are a feminist couple – he having legally taken my last name. All there seem impressed and respectful of my place at the head of any table … However – here it comes my darling readers – at one point when I complained about length of time bank is projecting for distribution and brought up my knowledge of and concerns that the banking industry might find it beneficial to keep such a large sum to gain use of it a bit too long, the young man to my right chuckles that I do not have financial concerns because “after all you are married to a high income earner” and “therefore should not worry“. Well now needless to say or maybe I do need to describe that I turned to this young man, leaned over and shaking my index finger explained that under no circumstances was he or anyone else to take into consideration my marital status in relationship to my financial issues. At that very moment I heard my antler bells ringing and then sitting back asked why or when was anyone going to mention I had them on? Answer was pretty much they thought I knew and wanted to wear them during the meeting. Patronizing or just polite not important but there is a moral to this REAL life story … Especially for my women readers:

Ladies when you are at the head of the table and know what you are talking about – learn about and study the subject in advance – it does not matter what the hell you are wearing in the end!

P.S. At a recent similar meeting that I could not attend due to scheduling, my husband was asked if he was married to me … When he proudly said yes, the woman facilitating the issue at hand assured my hubby then there would be no problem as she knew me and trusted my judgement. So you see things are improving for women in many ways but ladies you have to insist on it – even when wearing reindeer antlers. Happy and Blessed Holidays 2014!

Witnessing Love – Mary Frances and Dulce!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

… She’s a brawny girl, well built and tall and sturdy, and she will know how to keep her chin out of the mud with any knight errant .

— Sancho Panza, Don Quixote’s squire, says of Dulcinea, (namesake for the Dulce in this essay!)

 

Mary Francis & Dulce 2014

A beautiful intelligent vibrant woman adopts a beautiful intelligent vibrant dog and so it begins. A REAL love so evident that all who have the privilege of knowing this team are awed. Who are they you ask that seem to affect so many? Well simple and most important to me is that the woman, Mary Frances is my friend and Dulce was her companion … I hesitate to say her dog as that does not nearly describe how this relationship should be defined. Here I want to illuminate what I and so many others viscerally experienced in the company of this duo. I tell you without hesitation that my wonderful attorney gal pal Mary Frances and Dulce define the essence of love and you my many dear readers will be gladdened by reading their story.

Mary Frances Prevost is a talented California Attorney … Determined to defend those unjustly accused and one might say as Don Quixote tilt at windmills no matter the naysayers. One must not get the wrong idea here for my friend is equal part legal crusader and a woman both charming and full of life’s vigor – beautiful both in appearance and attitude Mary Frances can be that most effective of legal professionals in that the average individual full of misconceptions might think such a beauty incapable of REAL strength. Well that is the magic my dear readers. So it was that Mary Frances saw easily these same combined characteristics when choosing a dog to adopt – her name to be forever more Dulce.

Kind, watchful, smart, loving and full of  life Dulcinea “Dulce” Prevost was born 31 October 2002 and left us for heaven on 16 September 2014 as her Mother Mary Frances embraced this sweet being with the constant love that had been at the center of their relationship. Charm I tell you … Pure and simply there was charm in this sweet dog’s face and demeanor – evident in person and in photos there was no doubt Dulce had a presence that could captivate her audience. You see dog and owner alike here … Mary Frances and her beloved Dulce both charmers but there was more than just that which made Dulce unique. Soulfulness seen in Dulce’s eyes informed and instructed all who knew her that this being was full of that which G-d most loves – goodness in the deepest sense where only joy of living is the goal and therefore a gift bestowed on anyone who spent time in the company of Dulce.

Let me describe Dulce’s life … Well there was indeed the very best of everything. Home and hearth lovely and accommodating – with no expense spared. Daycare where Dulce’s other Mom as Mary Frances well describes to look after her and then weekends at the beach. The best health care, the best food, the best to be had in every single way is how Dulce lived – actually as well, if not better than many treat their human family members is the truth of the life sweet Dulce had with Mary Frances.  When illness came here too no expense nor option denied … My friend did not choose the easy way out – Dulce would be given many more good days because Mary Frances persevered at great effort and expense with treatment. These last days included extra trips to the beach and special treats and days where Mary Frances only focus was Dulce … I tell my friend that all of us wish for the same attention, devotion and care – complete and unselfish love as we face the end of our life here. We her friends all joined Mary Frances in prayers for Dulce – asking for miracles and comfort. I am proud to say that my friend made center to her life the love and concern she had for suffering Dulce these last few months … Yes pride I write because those quiet about love lessen not only their own importance but that which the world so desperately needs. There is some odd delineation – some universal dictate that fairly or not has G-d see those most cared for as a light – a gift – those who must be recognized as having special attention in life and there after. So it was and will be that Mary Frances gave such a recognition to dear Dulce.

I shared with Mary Frances a story about my Father and I during the last days of his life. This essay is about my friend and not me but for now I will explain as I did to Mary Frances that among other lovely and poignant conversations between my dear Father and I as he neared life’s end was when he looked at me and said: “To be loved as I have been loved by you my daughter, truly is to have seen the face of G-d!”  So too I believe it was that dear Dulce saw the glory and love of G-d as she looked into Mary Frances beautiful face.

So I end with what my Jewish faith teaches about eternal life. We are always here – a energy forever existing as the scientist concur matter never dissipates and dwells endlessly within the Universe. More immediate is that eternal life is given by remembrance – Dulce will never be forgotten – certainly not by Mary Frances nor we who were privileged to see these two together. Here I am going to ask my readers to do themselves a favor … Think of it as Dulce’s gift to you. Open your minds – see REAL love – witness in honest ways and without prejudice that which is love in whatever form it takes. When you view others and those they love – those they would do anything for then in honor of Dulce and to make your life better, understand that is the glory of G-d here present among us!

 

R.I.P.   Dulcinea “Dulce” Prevost … Thank you for your presence in all our lives. We who love your dear Mom Mary Frances will look after her for you – you can find comfort now among the angels!

My Personal 9/11 Story!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

“The Horror! The Horror!”,  proclaims Kurtz in Joseph Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness. Yes, we all thought or spoke those words as watching that day’s events on 11 September 2001. I watched the second tower fall as turning in my private hospital suite bed after breast cancer surgery. A dear relative surgeon had arranged a lovely private extra large room and to have my private nurse be sure cable news [as he knew I am a news junkie] was on for me when I woke that morning – never realizing or imagining my eyes would open to see that horror and hear Bryant Gumbel saying this was probably no accident after all.

After my first wonderful husband, David Colin, died in Spring 2001, I decided that doing a little – shall we say – sprucing up was in order. Being a life long runner, I felt my knees had become a bit chunky/muscular and that a breast lift might be nice as well. I had grown quite close to a distant relative [very talented] plastic surgeon and so I decided to ask what he thought – yes no problem but this dear man suggested that even though I already had routine yearly mammograms, another pre-op was required. So off I went – mammogram complete, organizing all in order to have a week or two recovery time where biggest task would be finally reading all those wonderful books on my night table. Being a wee bit compulsive and very organized I scurried to and fro paying bills, stocking up on necessities and taking a friend’s idea to arrange staying at the Philadelphia Ritz Carlton while recuperating in order to have REAL [yes I got a miscreant hint in even here, lol] concierge assistance 24/7. Now some shopping needed to be complete – a doctor gal pal explained that I would be needing loose fitting front buttoning tops for easy access after breast lift surgery. While driving in my new 2001 adorable amazing gorgeous custom champagne colored XKR Jaguar convertible - yes, in love with my car – my cell phone rang and seeing relative plastic surgeon number I assumed a quick pre-surgery get together lunch date was being offered. “Hello sweetie – are we getting together to break bread before you and I meet in operating room next week?”,  was my greeting. An unusually somber voice responded that yes but he wanted me to come to his office asap – I somehow knew instantly what was going on. I turned that sweet car around, headed across town, took the elevator up to the beautiful office I had entered so many times before to be greeted by a teary eyed doctor. No question now – something very bad was happening. Obviously, by now, you readers must realize they had found cancer – fortunately it was in duct situ carcinoma , which is a rather mild form/early detected breast cancer, of one breast and in my finally ready book [published late Winter 2014], Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! all that journey and more will be detailed. Suffice it to say that vanity saved my life and love of my surgeon friend made that journey much, much easier. Also, Ritz Carlton recuperation a very pleasant way to get back on one’s feet. Of course, the horrors of the 9/11 terrorism attacks not so easily remedied and that is why unlike many, when asked when my breast cancer surgery was – I answer precisely with day, date and even time – that day of national horror never erased from our collective world memory.

Well I fully recovered – knees, buttocks [yes had that lifted too] and breasts looking better than ever. The two years that followed however, just like our nation after 9/11, presented some serious and for me, unexpected challenges. I, as always, must remain vague here and simply ask for your patience as my book will detail fully the entire completed documented story – suffice it to say that there is much to be learned by everyone and I believe inspiration as well for those who read my story. I hope and pray that my complicated and triumphant journey will help others overcome and rally to their own great destiny. One of the main reasons my amazing second husband, Chester Michael Eliasz-Solomon agreed I should sign a book deal was how many folks we believe my story will give guidance to and that many will be made better for knowing that like myself, they too can thwart all enemies, fight against those who lie and hate and go on to find true happiness against the odds. My darling hubby has always graciously called me Teréza Triumphant ™ – in fact, among our now owned over thirty  trademarks/copyrights is that too. So here we are at my next 9/11 saga – meeting the love of my life.

Oh my, so sorry my darling readers and followers but vague again I must be about the exact circumstances of how and where I met my amazing second husband but trust me that as my self titled “team” [lawyers, advisers, publicist, family, friends, et al.] constantly say, it is definitely a REAL Oh My G-d love story – one surely to go down as great in the annals of timeless romances. What I will share in reference to the historical date this writing is about is that on 9/11 2003 my man proposed [in his Jaguar] with a magnificent diamond ring he designed and a poem he wrote that referenced the tragedy both nationally and personally for me that occurred on 11 September 2001  – his proposal speech included how he hoped that I would agree to make him happier than he ever thought possible by agreeing to marry him on this the same calendar date 2003. YES, YES, YES  I instantly responded seeing my new engagement ring through tears of  joy. WOW – what a guy – right? And so it is that each year on 9/11 we two thank G-d that our love has grown and that in remembering those who perished and all the heroes from the tragedy of 9/11, our coming together as man and wife and the children our blessed union created is a stick in the eye of those devils  that wanted to destroy this great nation – for we two and our children represent, as I believe my Jewish people do concerning the Holocaust, G-d’s design that good does REALLY triumph over evil!!!

P.S. My breast cancer experience was made much easier because of my insurance coverage, access personally to REALLY good doctors, funds for private nurses and yes being able to pay for staying at the Ritz Carlton to recuperate. In my blog post Why ACA Is Obama’s FDR Moment!, I discuss and even show my signed by President Obama framed certificate thanking me for my participation in passing that ground breaking health care bill. One of my plans is donate a part of my books proceeds to and continue to work for ALL women to have similar health care options – maybe I can not put you up at the Ritz but I surely, with other determined like minded individuals, get you mammograms and the best possible medical care that you can find. Both my husband and I are devoted feminist – committed to saving women from the draconian current crop of GOP cuts – PLEASE join us in November 2014/2016 and vote out and against those who would deny any woman her rightful health care coverage!!!

Labor Day 2014

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

 LaborDay” …  Hungry people eating the stuff they raised, living in the houses they built, I’ll be there too …” says Henry Fonda near the end of the film Grapes of Wrath. On nearly every Labor Day growing up my late father and I read and discussed this iconic and historic book, as well as often watching the film together. I have written in other blog essays that I am the proud daughter of a successful business man who was also a union organizer – yes my dear readers, one can indeed be both.

The recent anti-union vitriol in this nation in nothing more than a political attempt to sway into action one group of Americans against another. The REAL and true economic fact is that organized labor has raised the standard of living for us all. History teaches well that companies responded to the pressing demands of unions even if not themselves involved. People seem to forget just how disposal workers were before employment laws began to be enforced. Injured at work meant goodbye to income and certainly no recourse to seek compensation for damages.

Yes I know that many of you truly believe that unions forced companies to close on account of costs and that your cost of living and purchases increased as well – this is pure nonsense I assure you. Simple truth is that REALLY healthy economies are a cycle of salary in, spending done and hence more jobs created. No matter labor, semi or professional status – if other folks do not have expendable and disposal incomes, then you will not have a position to receive yours either.

So do me a personal favor [you will thank me] my friends on this Labor Day 2014 – between the sale shopping, backyard barbecues, last beach visits – take some time to read Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath book and/or watch the old black and white film version. If you are lucky when I have you all over for a grand fête some day, you can hear me recite most of the very emotional ending soliloquy spoken by Henry Fonda, “  … wherever there is a hungry man, I will be there …”. Now go be a REAL American – support ALL our citizens in seeking security and good health and in doing so you will be reminded that we REALLY are our brothers and sisters keepers … so help me G-d!!!

P.S. In late Fall 2014 first book, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! and more complete tell ALL memoir to be published year end 2014, Life Journey of Heiress Mommy, many of the amazing REAL details concerning my late father’s business philosophy – including how his legacy has influenced myself and my dear husband in making recent decisions – will be shared. Until then, get to task and help make our beloved nation a place where ALL can prosper!!!

Monkey Loves Fascinator Lady!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

monkeyFasBefore I begin this pointed tale, I want to confess that I to date own over three hundred hats and a few lovely fascinators. I have shopped at famous London milliners, been to the Kentucky Derby, New York Hat Conservatory Day Fete and more where hats mandated attire. Not wanting to age badly nor be a victim of skin cancers, I always try to wear large brim hats when boating or on the beach. In fact, sports being a huge part of my life and even though quite good at golf found myself playing less [more early a.m. and evening tennis] due to hours in the sun required. So you see I love hats and fascinators but ONLY when the right place and time. I fondly remember my late Mother directing me to not include a hat when going to this or that event as was too much shall we say – not in good taste – later realizing she was sparing me being mocked by others. Oh well, again my good luck in having a REALLY fashionable East Coast life one might say. As you my regular readers must know there will always be more about that later. For now here we go with the REAL life tale – with my usual not so subtle life lesson included – of how it has become apparent a monkey type has a bit of a crush on a somewhat attractive poseur lady with what seems to be a fascinator fetish:

A monkey named Jeff seemed enamored with a female human who was fond of wearing fascinators even at the most inappropriate times … Seems primates, unlike REALLY discriminating humans are smitten with exaggeration attire no matter the lack of good taste the wearer might be demonstrating. Now most surprising is the monkey was life mate to what all were lead to believe was his one and only true love … A best friend of sorts. Still Jeff made clear with affirmations “likes” and words printed out on the keyboard keepers had taught this monkey how to use that fascinator lady had captured his interest. Especially shocking to the humans seeing this was the monkey using words he never felt comfortable with – his usual choices being far more pedestrian in tone. All of sudden Jeff was emoting with “fabulous” and such. Wherever did such a nearly illiterate creature learn that sort of verbiage? The monkey even took to typing out compliments to seemingly deranged Mama of fascinator lady. What was one to make of such affection … Especially the monkey’s mate? A simple friendliness or a telling of REAL and deep wanting for something prettier than his life companion? After all monkeys are the evolutionary brethren of we humans … Jeff being male might simply be expressing what so many men do when after years of being with one person – despite his own insular world – become taken with another more alluring. Now I do not endorse this behavior in humans of course as one must find a way to see REAL beauty in that person who is their lawful [wedded] mate and if wanting a more pleasant appearance kindly suggest that person tidy up bit shall we say. Alas monkeys nor the less human types among us are not capable of grand thoughts as to what REAL commitment entails it seems.

Surely my regular readers and those intuitive realize this is not REALLY about a monkey per se … Although my husband was asked to review a book with a monkey named Jeff as primary character and all here said YES do it and my husband did rather well as my review of his online post commented. What this essay is meant to instruct is that decorum and intention of words are to be taken quite seriously and no less than any other activity that represents a person’s character. In totality my husband and I have over 100, 000 regular blog readers in 170 countries – I have nearly 5000 blog subscribers and over 4000 Facebook followers and many on other social media sites. I mention these facts because often I receive quite complimentary comments from men … At times what I consider much too flirtatious as they know I am married and indeed many of them are too. My husband and advisers agree with me that these, while always polite and never vulgar, compliments are what we consider evidence of men not content with their own relationships and at times suggestive of more definitive facts that they are without REAL decency. What to gather from all this you might be thinking? Well simply that those among us without REAL intelligence or guidelines for behavior show their true selves through both deeds and words. Careful one must be and if inclined to do that which I describe monkey Jeff as having done with fascinator lady than pause and contemplate the why and intrinsic meaning of your thoughts.

Note: I am dedicating this essay to Koko the ape who it seems had a ongoing friendship and as her keepers explain REAL love bordering in her mind on romance with the wonderful late Robin Williams. When informed of the tragic death of Robin, Koko cried and became depressed but then again did not we all? Rest in Peace dear man … We all miss and love you, not just Koko!

Tweet Your Way To CEO!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

KeepCalmMy upbringing instructed that whining and defeat are not acceptable … The Jewish home by nature one where if breathing you go for it. Circumstances presented many times in my life made that teaching a REAL G-d sent. Never deterred nor lessened by occurrences or happenstance I managed to rally beyond all expectations to pursue and achieve my ever increasing goals. My regular readers and those who know me well are very aware of exactly how true this is and the last few years what my L.A. Attorney calls “reign of terror” against myself and my husband from nemesis [people from my husband’s past] proved this attitude even more important. While thwarting these enemies and in turn proceeding legally against them [now nearing fruition] I and my husband who even though from a background far different than my own where success seen only as that which one minimally needs to get by, managed to build toward all our dreams and keep at the normal pleasures of family life. Here I must, as always, acknowledge the amazing supportive beyond measure family, friends and colleagues who made so much of our blessed life possible … Often defending, protecting and participating in legal efforts against those attempting no less than our demise. How is it I … Make that WE were able to start a business, myself re-enter school, build our family, complete books deals, process to own Trademarks/design patents, travel, socialize and more while many days fearful of stalkers and worse? Many reasons but for this essay shall we just say being CEO of our life was the key.

Well enough about me … For now anyway. Here I want to tell you about one of my “oh my lucky me” meeting an amazing person stories. Those in my life always impressed with my good luck at coming to know in unexpected ways the most special people. So it was on Twitter I connected with @MikeLehrOZA – actually not sure who followed who first but what I do know is that I quickly began to appreciate and admire Mike Lehr. Still surprising to me is how much I have learned from this man in such a short amount of time and even more reassuring seen many issues we have nearly exact ideas about. One especially important to me is that my late very erudite Mother Mary Rose Solomon pontificated and promoted [gave me book to read] the philosophies of Sun Tzu and Mike Lehr apparently finds this also a template for life and work. Coincidence or a meant to be in that Mike also often references Machiavelli  and here you go … Some time before meeting Lehr I wrote a blog essay: “Why My Dear Mama Thought Machiavelli Was Misunderstood!“. Yes I know Mother born 1914 was quite interesting to say the least. Not many truly perceive that Sun Tzu  and Machiavelli’s teachings both explore the necessary while examining the possible. My Twitter buddy … Now honored to chat through emails/calls as well and determined if not before to break bread with when on my book tour in his territory, Mike offers both scholarship and humour in his writing. There are business and personal topics and no overreaching guru or faux cult misrepresentation when reading Mike’s blog. Neither is there that preachy tone that often leads us to turn away from instruction. Not at all as Mike Lehr is honest and forthright adding the question as answer many times and in that allowing his reader to to see the REAL possibilities or maybe just the option to contemplate without conclusion the topic.

So you see again it is a case of the REALLY lucky and blessed Teréza; I have a plethora of riches in those I am fortunate to meet, get to know to one or other extent and learn from, receive support and counsel from and likewise hope same for them from me to some degree. There is never subterfuge in all can ask and hear my REAL story … My gloried life brings me appreciation for that which matters most and thank G-d my wise parents insisted that I do at least try to have eyes to see, heart to feel and a brain to attempt understanding. Is it me that was smart enough to turn to someone like Mike Lehr on Twitter or some lucky force that directs those of us open to such things to merely press that Tweet one day? No matter really as here I am being the generous me [told you in first paragraph I was only moving on from moi for a brief movement] doing you on my growing readers list the favor of sharing a suggestion that you go to my friend Mike Lehrblog.omegazadvisors.com sign up and learn something … You all can thank me later!!!

My Personal Hamas Enemy!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

JewishTearI am a proud American Jewish Zionist   … As most of my people I am instructed by our faith that details all areas of life, even addressing our enemies. From the beginning the burden of compromise is on us – simply put that we must attempt to thwart the conflict between us as individuals or a nation and those seeking argument and conflict. However NOT at all cost and never at the risk of our own demise. So it is that my husband and I of late have felt and had knowing others in our life compare our personal nemesis to Hamas as we are to Israel in their efforts to malign, harass and some well placed believe actually destroy our very existence. This essay is merely an attempt to give clarity as our personal enemies claim by means of subterfuge being victim after years of attacking us and after we had no choice but to seek a decisive route to defend and [legally] see punished they, our sworn enemy … All as Israel has done not necessarily for punitive reasons but instead as neither our nemesis nor Hamas was willing to admit guilt and reform their actions in effort to leave all involved as before. My hope and that of my dear husband is that by seeing the personal an example of the bigger picture that Israel deals with, you the readers will somehow come to understand the reality of our and Israel circumstances.

Some of you my regular readers are aware – some more detailed than others – of the horrible stalking, harassment, slander, defamation and worse, including sexually toned threats, all in the last few years and preceeded by our home being criminally vandalized 2003 and even a phone death threat that my husband and I have been forced to deal with. A Los Angeles Attorney friend describes what has happened to us as a deliberate “reign of terror” [all timeline documented] – additionally some of these well known to us individuals are anti-semitic. Our wonderful lawyer has and is addressing this matter with his usual brilliance and affectionate devotion. Hopefully the legal system will appropriately punish them and my books will expose them and help others faced with similar bullying situations. My point here is would anyone ask myself or my husband to allow these individuals, some who have never met me or seen my husband in over twenty years to go unchallenged or have them be allowed to continue the attacks on us without legal recourse that we seek? Surely no one one would wish on us or another such horrors and constant barrage – often daily – to go on to the point of causing great harm and depletion of all worked for in life. So much the Courts have now insisted we remain silent on as the process toward justice comes closer to fruition, yet still I can assure you [all documented] their multi aspect attacks were without precedence. Seems they felt our own life story would allow room for their misleading representations and so much worse. We like Israel with G-d’s grace lived a full productive life while still addressing at each and every turn their evil deeds. You see Israel flourishes among enemies and we have as well … Of course admittedly with amazing supportive professionals and friends at our side. Too often the enemy hopes by mere weight and depth of their actions retreat is their targets only recourse. This is not to be an acceptable option if survival and prosperity is to be had by those of  us while not perfect still entitled to exist contently in peace.

So what is our personal comparison you may ask to Israel’s current conflict? It is actually not difficult when seeing the many tunnels built into Israel by Hamas and their shameful admittance that they want to destroy Israel. When Israel responded as only possible of course the horrors of battle were the result. In my life quite possibly loss of property and employment as we seek damages and our nemesis are publicly exposed will be their result; Some may think [who do not know the full REAL details] that was too much a punishment but those knowledgeable have agreed it is only fair compensation. If any criminal charges result in incarcerations that too will be simply as the justice system determines is rightful remedy. My husband and I, like Israel, did nothing to provoke such vile attempts against us … Nothing that is but make decisions best for our life and future. Many educated in such issues believe our enemies REALLY believed they could go unpunished by convincing others it was my husband and I unworthy of dignity. Does that not sound very much like Hamas toward Israel? No need to extrapolate each analogy to an exact point of comparison … No not at all but only to see each of your personal opposing forces as mine and my husband’s, as well as Israel’s … That is a force often out of envy or misperceived ideas determined to destroy forever the object they have targeted.

Let me conclude with what I deeply feel not only as a Jewish woman but as a citizen of the world: This is on you Hamas … My heart is broken as my Israel has now been involved in a war you the evil of this world began and resulted in the innocent deaths of Jews and others. We Jews are being asked by the world to become complacent and thus be destroyed. You Hamas lie and cause many of the deaths now attributed to Israel. Even those Israel responsible for your doing as your attempts to destroy Israel caused ALL this. Still we Jews are broken hearted … I scream out in sorrow for the death of innocent children no matter their parents decisions and I plead to G-d that all find a permanent truce. This is not who we Jews are or wish to be, as we  have saved and healed in hospital many of Israeĺs enemies. I have been to Israel fourteen times and can confirm that all who seek to live peacefully there do so quite happily. Hamas and the world MUST accept Israel’s right to exist and as we Jews MUST now again defend that right, somehow find a way to end ALL the deaths resulting. I trust Israel’s leaders but I am nearly paralyzed by grieve as the innocent while possibly among my enemy die needlessly. Please G-d bring Israel and our neighbors peace … I am here in America crying out to you. I beg to see this end L-rd and I am made helpless by my own fear and confusion – I pray for direction for myself and all involved. Please G-d bless us with peace!!!

 

P.S. Thank you all for the ongoing support … Many of you close and personal who care for me daily through this horror and still others only known to me through my writing and such.  I appreciate you all. With G-d’s grace my husband and I will not only remain triumph but champion the cause of other victims!

My REAL Intellectual’s Guide To The Wizard Of Oz!!!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Having known one two many wicked witches as of late in my dealings with miscreant types leaves me quite interested in L. Frank Baum’s real intent and meaning when writing The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz in 1900. The popular movie starring Judy Garland while close in tonality does not exactly depict the deeper meaning nor life philosophy of the original book. A world entering WWII was ready for a value based tale and so the big screen version was a well received and reinforcing message entertainment vehicle … America wanted to be reassured that you can go home again. Was Baum defining or promoting or even endorsing populism, progressivism – possibly theosophy? Are these ideas ascribed to the book no more than an intellectual overreach – for did not L. Frank Baum write himself as an introduction to his book The Oz Chronicles (volume 1), Chicago, April 1900, that his work,  “aspired to being a modernized fairy tale, in which the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out.”?

One can not help but look to the characters in both book and The Wizard Of Oz 1939 movie to define modern problems – who is the leader, the suppressor, the hero, the proletarian, the victim in the Oz scenario? Easy you say – poor Dorothy and Toto far from home and lost and her Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion all pathetic put upon creatures. Who then are the winners – the rulers in Baum’s story? Can we believe the good witch is the ultimate victor as she is good and beautiful – so obviously filled with grace that we instantly know hers is a happy existence. Likewise, we automatically know that the wicked witch is ugly, mean and jealous – all the characteristics of a deeply unsatisfactory life. The ultimate king pin is of course, the Wizard himself – and yet in the end no more than a pretender – grant it ultimately having a kind heart and rather benign position. Too easy it seems to categorize and delineate by types – there is a two sided view to Oz participants – one simple and obvious and the other very complex and nuanced.

REAL life is also nuanced – what might appear a negative is frequently the best of what life has to offer and things that on the surface are deemed “normal” often turn out to be hiding less than decent motives or even sinister issues. We all know those who declare “life is good” are many times hiding insecurities and their own belated awareness that theirs is a less than exciting and definitely not successful life – a case of “thou protest too much”.  For my husband and I it has been dealing with much lesser types who think they can judge us on issues their small minds could NEVER comprehend – usually we are both tolerant of such pretenders but as in OZ, evil must be exposed and thwarted. So it is for many, like us, who face misanthropes that lie for selfish or insecure reasons. Dorothy knew you can not ONLY wish bad away – you must actively and with righteousness pursue justice against those who would deny your rightful due. The famous yellow brick road is actually introduced in Baum’s second book, The Marvelous Land Of Oz. When you doggedly follow your own unique path and deny all challengers on your “yellow brick road” there may be pauses/rest stops needed along the way but determination and the knowledge that you are going in the correct direction will surely lead to the destiny of your dreams. The trick is to never ever ever allow haters to place pot holes on your road home. Often easier said than done but like myself and my wise husband you must be not detoured no matter who is getting in the way.

I was recently informed that a certain [shall we say] delusional type was for some reason fond of the Wizard Of Oz Scarecrow. Well now let me assure you that this particular middle of the middle of the middle person has no idea that Scarecrow’s aliases include Socrates Strawman or that his eventual titles were His Majesty The Scarecrow and Royal Treasurer. True, not many do but for this individual the complex insinuations would leave her stunned. As with many among us, her attempt to be humorous or pointed sadly back fires … in that she does not have a REAL brain nor clue to what is REAL. My friends, colleagues and family almost feel guilty at the gifted chuckles such individuals seem determined to provide us via social media – of course, they have also provided material for attorneys, law enforcement and investigators – the ultimate Shakespearean two sided drama of comedy and drama come to mind. Without a doubt many of my dear readers and followers also face enemies who profess decency but live deceptively and with hatefulness toward others – possibly they have fear born out of their own insecurities and inferiority complexes. Don’t we all have neighbors or colleagues who do the budget travel routine and then fancy themselves sophisticated when in reality they are the ultimate bourgeois tourist/aptly described with the coined phrased “Ugly American” middle class travelers? These folks return to their insular hometown life – typical setting travel photos in hand –  falsely secure that they are worldly, when in fact they are insignificant and unchanged despite a trip or two abroad. These types will still and always be what they were as children in middle America”s far too frequently small and narrow minded place. Unlike Dorothy, such deluded individuals, return from their journeys no more aware or informed as when they dine at the local beer joint or chain food neighborhood restaurant. And yet there are others we all know who venture only short distance but somehow gain insight through REAL learning and REAL relationships. It is NOT the so called middle class by income I demean here – instead it is that middle class mentality, which is far too often a danger to REAL progress. What to do when faced with loathsome creatures you ask? Do as Dorothy did and as I/my husband do – persevere in a glorified G-d given life and NEVER allow evil to defeat you. As was Kansas in The Wizard Of Oz so is your ultimate destiny worth the struggle and the battle and as the characters who bonded together to reach the Emerald City – you will bond and find REAL like minded loves and friends and support systems if only you have determination and the will to get to the home place you deserve and desire. You must remember that the scholarly interpretation of that green colored place is illusion based on an insufficient value and that should be the caution for all us of REAL value as we seek our ultimate place of contentment. Do not be as those who delude themselves into thinking theirs is a REAL place – never waver on account of the poseurs  – for if you do the miscreants triumph and that would be offensive to G-d!!!

Note: This is a redux/attenuated version of my 2102 essay … some references above now made even more serious due to ongoing situations involving the individuals referenced. With G-d’s grace and the devotion of my wonderful attorney all will be made clear soon … additionally the intentional delayed publications of my first two books until later 2014 has made possible a third book in consideration solely based on legal matters referenced. In the mean while, stay tuned and stay in touch dear readers and be very careful for many among us are indeed deranged Oz worshippers!
