Amtrak Train Crash – America’s Broken Contract!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

ContractBrokenSo many – especially on the right side of the U.S. political spectrum reference our Founders in an effort to justify this or that action … Even the legal, including a few Supreme Court Justices, experts call themselves “originalists” as they believe they know our amazing Founders original intent in totality. This essay is not about that in the broadest sense but I am convinced that which is very clear in the Founders writings and our U.S. Constitution applies to all aspects of American life … Protect and defend. Simple surely you agree and I believe is the major and primary promise the Founders wanted for this great nation and for ALL Americans.

Think of the Constitution as a contract and one where the Founders wanting to differentiate this nation from those past would guarantee ALL no matter status equal protection from harm. Not only from the foreign or other but within – the ability to live safely and thrive. As time went on more and more legislation and structure was created to assure each citizen could consider life without needing to attend personally to every task in order to exist without fear. We developed health oversights, employment safety rules, product standards and such. Well guess what – for the last thirty or so years we the people by ignoring and politicians by persuasion of special interest and inappropriate/misguided posturing about what our national budget can afford have slowly but steadily eviscerated these much needed controls on those things which basically are a matter of life and death … The contract is broken my dear readers.

This past week #Amtrak188 derailed killing eight and severely injuring others in Philadelphia while traveling the most important national corridor for business, politics, etc between New York and Washington D.C.. The “contract” between the passengers and Amtrak and our government was a matter of safety and oversight – including funding. According to the National Transport Safety Board this accident no matter cause would have been prevented by a Train Control System which although mandated by Congress Amtrak has asked to not install until 2020 and Congress itself the same week as Amtrak 188 incident further cut funding for our national infrastructure budget. What is at play here? Business concerns … Finance, ethics, even morality? Remember all sorts of people travel by train …. Is this the new great American equalizer in that our Unites States infrastructure is so dilapidated and neglected that no matter your income or ability all are indeed equally exposed to danger on railroads, bridges, highways, etc.? Obviously I believe the answer is a unequivocal YES and therefore my fellow Americans we all should pay very close attention to what our elected representatives are doing and likewise our citizen corporations. This is NOT a we versus them or one of my all time [NOT] favorites “those people” that the middle types seem so fond of using in a pejorative fashion. No but instead this is a “US” my friends because remember we ALL use trains, planes and automobiles … we ALL consume food and water – so to conclude and one of my favorite law school classes taught the Founders REALLY thought “contracts” in our great unique nation were paramount to a healthy and vital democracy!

Note: To the families and friends of those who died in Amtrak 188 crash my deepest and sincere condolences. To those injured my prayers for a full and speedy recovery. To our wonderful Philadelphia Mayor Nutter – as always Sir job well done and to the Philadelphia Police, Fireman, EMTs – may G-d bless you for your heroic work.

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!

Labor Day

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 – 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 my first book, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! and more complete tell ALL memoir, 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!!!

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!!!

iPhones and Gel Nail Polish Greatest Inventions?

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

TerezaNailsEvery week for many years it was back to the nail salon … no problem REALLY as I always have and always will be a well attended to feminist lady. But oh my, also being a REALLY busy and productive multitask type woman had me daunted by the hours of waiting for polish to dry and then the days when chips made me look unkempt became at times just ridiculous. Still wanting to “look good while doing good” being my mantra, I went to these weekly appointments without fail and to be blunt enjoyed the reprieve from my happy, but demanding life. Problem was when adding monthly hair coloring, almost daily professional blow outs and all the other must do maintenance time spent was becoming troublesome – well now, a few years ago a short cut so to speak came along in my life and that was gel nail polish. No fuss and only a few minutes had me dried and ready to go for another two weeks with lovely hands at the ready.

Now let us discuss the Apple fairies … these darlings, along with tech genius hubby placed in my lovely manicured hands the tool of a lifetime, my iPhone. My emails, my social media sites, the many magazines, newspapers and publications I read daily, along with my own blog and online Flipboard magazine, Teréza Style, at my well manicured fingertips. Oh yes, of course there are the phone calling and text messages capabilities to be obviously grateful for too. Now I am never out of touch with family, friends, acquaintances and colleagues and that brings me REAL joy and productivity to my already blessed and full life. Of course, there is wee bit of down side to this glorious piece of modernity – I am even now more a 24/7 gal.  As with all things in my complicated life, hubby and I have turned that too into a positive by having my daily Judaism  prayer schedule of Talmud and Torah early a.m. study sent via my phone’s emails, my yoga coach and personal trainer available via face time, my ever present dear and close friend/amazing and brilliant attorney connected to all sites and publisher and publicist reachable at any time as well. So you see besides my REAL life, Magic Jeanine Assistant, there is my iPhone to help me be all that I REALLY want and can be in my life.

Now look my dear readers it must be clear this is not REALLY about one or another particular item that makes my life easier – no indeed, it is about time and convenience and not being a Luddite. Many miscreant types out of envy have made much of my having my own REAL hairdresser – this person was mostly one individual for the last ten years and before that another and now one or two new wonderful and talented individuals. In fact at various times in my life, my hairdresser came almost daily to my home and that is the plan again as we are soon moving into our new homes. Yes it is a luxury but not entirely as it affords me the ability to get coiffed and get going to appointments, meetings and events in a timely fashion. Why every professional hairdresser colorist in my life now knows to have a towel ready during process to wipe my iPhone as those long shared appointments include my needing to make calls and such. See it saves time and all right I will admit that I enjoy the bonus of it keeping me looking well styled too.

I see no difference between these two referenced conveniences that lend toward my well being and the home gyms I have always had to less or more extent … including the sweet gestured one my husband set up nearly ten ago before our marriage at our first shared home. No question that my elliptical trainer makes my daily workout out easier because it is at the ready in my home. I am a runner, a hiker, a fly fisher person and sail – all leading to wash and go hair at times and so no need for any of you dear readers to see me as the coiffed sit around being pampered type. Likewise, while fun for some things, my iPhone is also a work tool that allows the business ventures my husband and I work on, my upcoming books and public relations necessitated involvements to be completed. The nails – well that too makes me not only tidy but ready to go at all times. I do not [nor does my husband] consider my salon manicures, pedicures, waxing, facial, etc. a “luxury” – while yes nice that we can afford these, a equally must do circumstance that contributes to my overall well being. I am nearly unable to fully make articulable how important it REALLY is for both men and women to not consider such things in life frivolous – for a life considered worthy of self care is a life truly able to give to others.

In conclusion [love writing that], I actually believe that all progress that allows for efficiency is a wonderful thing … the REAL trick is as with everything in else in ones life – balance. One must balance and stay aware of just how much each and every factor prevails in our daily existence – no one thing should overwhelm nor dictate our being. So my darling readers enjoy and utilize your smart phones and such – for the ladies, I suggest including professional salon manicures and pedicures too but I also suggest you include as I do, to make sure nature is part and parcel of your life schedule. Relax, take a hike, walk or swim – as the saying goes “take time to smell the roses” and if you need to find the perfect nature spot, well use your iPhone to Google that too!

P.S. In my memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Lifeand more complete book, Life Journey of Heiress Mommy all the REAL details of how and why I am/always will be an eclectic high maintenance but self sufficient feminist will be shared … it is an exhausting but REALLY full and REALLY blessed life story!

Doggie Paradise on the Main Line!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

JavaWaterPoloYou’ve got all the arrogance of your class, haven’t you?” says the Jimmy Stewart character to Tracey Lord, played by Katherine Hepburn in the 1940 film The Philadelphia Story. That says it all about my hometown of Philadelphia famous Main Line area. REAL historical class defines the atmosphere of our spectacular suburb that was simply named that because the railroad’s main line ran through it. Wealthy folks did and still do reside there, as well as the professionals and others who seek to dwell within the quaint and pleasant atmosphere. As Miss Lord later explains REAL class is not defined  by money or property but style, decency and love. Still being elite has its place ,,, even for our sweet pets, Elite no more than a place and attitude that benefits its participants and that is where our dear canine Princess Java Argus retreats, has vacations and is REALLY well cared for – it is The Wagsworth Manor.

I know what you must be  thinking – just another expensive place to pamper pooch. You are wrong my darlings for Wagsworth Manor provides a healthy and safe home away for our beloved pets – they offer the usual bath, grooming, play and swim time but more important are their concerns for health and well being of the animals in their care. Full service to say the least is what you can expect from this amazing facility – as much a family as your own to care for your beloved companion, No medical issue left unattended nor safety situation not addressed for the pets boarding there. The day care a G-d sent for busy folks and the overnight or even long stay a REAL blessing considering the confidence such a place provides devoted pet owners.

Speaking of owners – well now, Wagsworth Manor takes REALLY good care of us too. Oh yes, they take my many calls, send hubby and I updates via emails and even include almost daily pictures of the mighty Java swimming and such. Trust me that if they tolerate a Jewish Mother like myself, they are pros at human interactions as much as animal relationships. Important that I tell you how REALLY amazing those who work there are … especially compassionate and cooperative when a family needs to leave their pets during babies being born, moves or even more upsetting times families deal with. For all these reasons myself and  my husband have found it necessary to have our Java be pampered like the Princess she REALLY is at Wagsworth Manor;  We have celebrated births, moves, trips, holidays, events and needing to have our pet in a safe place as we dealt with unseemly types in a way that would not have been easy without  a place like Wagsworth Manor being available. My family has advantages and blessings that make travel with our pets often possible and still there are those times when the knowledge that people who REALLY will care about our canine’s well being exist make our tasks possible.

No hyperbole – only REAL gratitude, appreciation and admiration from my family when asked about the place we allow to look after our beautiful Labrador, As we contemplate expanding our family even more – no matter what other States we decide to include as home, Wagsworth Manor will always be our first choice for Princess Java Argus and the other pets we plan to add to the Eliasz-Solomon realm!

Does Miley Cyrus REALLY Matter?

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

mileyVMAMy husband and I are both feminists – each deeply concerned about what we believe is the REAL growing war on women, both here in USA and around the world. Our philosophies in no way means either of us want to dictate choices to the female gender … Free to be as one wishes should rule the day. This includes expressions of beauty and sexuality for women; however, as my wise husband stated after seeing news reports about the Miley Cyrus VMA performance:This is a case of women making their position in our culture more vulnerable and diminishes women’s values therein !”   [see why I adore this man].

I am frequently reminding folks that business comes after the word, ‘show’ in reference to the entertainment industry. Profit is the assumed motive for any product – so if it sells, well now then it makes perfect sense to do it. The faux outrage about moral standards in reaction to vulgarity is frequently misplaced – shut the television off, do not go to see the film, do not buy the music, etc. is my standard advice. As far as role models for our children – my husband and I are that   and only those we decide as such for our children – not stars or sports figures. True, I worry about those youngsters without parents to guide them and insist the one common denominator of school take up that task.

My REAL fear is that young women are defining themselves singularly by appearance and sexual desirability. This syndrome can be delineated as a consequence of movies, television and magazines representation of the female ideal. We feminists struggle mightily to teach an alternative as possibility for life where all aspects of life prove a healthy and fulfilling direction. Having it all means attending to and developing all parts of your person. Mind, body and soul need tending to and females are lessened by suggestive demonstrations like that of Ms. Cyrus this week – not because it was sexy but instead because it was simply not entertaining, just offensively vulgar. True art that includes a grown up woman being desirable must combine respectful and tasteful representation of the full female gender. This “twerking” behavior has the potential to put young women at risk when they try to emulate Ms. Cyrus and the young women are not in a committed relationship. In today’s world, sometimes even a committed relationship is not enough protection for a woman who is attacked based upon her sexuality. Ms. Cyrus do you really want to be the root cause for another young woman’s misery when she attempts to emulate you in these public outlandish vulgar expressions?  I wish it did not matter.

P.S. In my memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life ! and follow up book, Life Journey of Heiress Mommy, all the REAL details of why my husband and I are so supportive of women’s rights will be shared. In the mean while, remember your mother was a woman!

Mackenzie Bezos’ Husband Bought The Washington Post !

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

BezosI see the comparisons … Yes indeed there are quite a few between myself, my amazing husband and Mr. & Mrs. Bezos. Lets see – shall we? Mackenzie Bezos  and I are both wives, mothers and writers. Her and I are each blessed to be married to REALLY smart and creative men and both our marriages demonstrate REAL partnerships. Of course, like us, the Bezos are obvious bibliophiles. For myself, growing up in a erudite family where the New York Times, Washington Post and other such periodicals were the mainstay of our life being well informed was rather easy. For my husband sadly his upbringing did not afford the same intellectual opportunities; it was his own singular brilliance and impetus that allowed for similar learning and growth. As such we are in sync, despite such disparate backgrounds, that our family and household be like my own Philadelphia childhood instead of his back in Michigan. So how does this relate to Jeff Bezos‘   recent purchase of The Washington Post ? Answer is simple REALLY – it is my fear  of loss of REAL news and more.

Jeff Bezos has prevented the demise of a quality newspaper. I am thrilled, as the previous owners – the Graham family  – also seem to be. This is a man of substantial means, resources and innovative talents – all that can help the paper survive and thrive.

I and many others fear a prejudicial editorial influence by owners of papers.. Surely Rupert Murdoch  is one prime example – when he bought one of the other papers that are a must read in my life – The Wall Street Journal  – many, myself included,  fretted that his particular slanted and most believe extreme conservative ideology would adversely effect the contents. Allow this Liberal capitalist to state so far WSJ is still a well written business oriented [with a bit of more personal fun stuff as of late] product. In other words, so far, so good.

In his letter to Washington Post employees, Jeff Bezos, shared his hopes for the paper to be a force of informative and worthwhile reporting. He also promised that neither his behemoth company, Amazon  nor other endeavors would play part in the direction taken. Of course, vigilance and ombudsmanship by the public and organizations formed for such oversight remain a must. For now at least, there will be a paper that G-d willing continues to produce REAL news instead of the much too frequently offered these days,  tabloid fare!

P.S. In my upcoming memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! and follow up Life Journey of Heiress Mommy! more of the REAL reasons the  Bezos and Mr. & Mrs. Eliasz-Solomon are similar will be detailed – for now, join me in reading more well written newspapers like The Washington Post!

A Shop Where REAL Angels Dwell!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Country Charm FurnishingsThere are times in one’s life that define REAL wealth – no, not my much adored Louboutin shoes nor the wonderful luxury trips I have been so excited to have experienced nor the spectacular homes hubby and I are planning. No indeed, the REALLY valued moments are when another person embraces, consoles and protects. In my life that list has an embarrassment of riches and here in my previous blog essays you dear readers have been privy to those  individuals and their place in my life … life long friends, colleagues and others who have held me up against the winds of defeat. In this essay I have a place where you can actually go to meet one – no make that a family of those angels that have blessed me with their presence in my life.

There is a shop in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania  owned by my dear friend Stephanie, attended to by her truly wonderful husband Rich and their amazing daughter Alaina. No matter where you dwell, I suggest you visit to see not only the lovely offerings but experience REAL kindness and joy, like I have, by knowing these fine people. Surely, you all realize this is where I tell you that story- read on for it is an inspiring life tale that all will feel inspired by and gladdened for having read. Recently I found myself in a situation where I needed to be in residence close by to the last home my dear husband and I owned – so many friends and even family lived in surrounding areas but none exactly where I now needed to be. A little before noon that day I sent my friend Stephanie a text – having chatted through Facebook but not getting together for some time, it might have seemed odd to a person of lesser character but not to this fine woman. After some minimal explanation and discussion with her husband, Rich, I was accepted as a house guest. Welcomed with affection and respect by this wonderful couple into their home and comforted by their hospitality – not to mention enchanted by their young daughter. There were meals shared, chats enjoyed and laughter too – my stay there facilitating the task at hand and providing my husband and I the security then needed without feeling of imposition or over reaching … this singularly on account of the REAL and true dignity and grace of my friends. The ethics and morality demonstrated by this couple with ease and the quintessence that defines the life force for each of us resulted in my being able to continue with those things most pressing. Salvation possibly would be considered hyperbole by some but I say it is exactly that – in the REAL saving at a time of strife in ones life is of a redemptive nature and more so when done by those not necessarily life long companions to date.

I am to be envied for those that have come into my life – there are just too many REALLY special people to write about but a few need a notation in print and the owners of Country Charm Furnishings are those kind of people. Now go there – buy lots of wonderful things and of course, tell them Teréza sent you – who knows you and I dear readers might see one another at this shop where REAL angels dwell some time soon. By the way, you will thank me once having visited – for the items available and for having the opportunity to meet my friend, Stephanie, the proprietor.

P.S. As with so much I must remain vague about exact details and for that I apologize – all REAL facts will be shared in my year end (2013) memoir, Heiress Mommy … A Modern Super Woman Life! and the recently decided Summer 2014  Life Journey of Heiress Mommy.
