  6. If I like the guest and feel the connect, then I go out of my way to entertain them. If I am not comfortable, then, I try to be nice, even though the difference is obvious!

If you have been following me on social media, you will also know about my NEW BOOK!  It is a sequel to Life is What You Make It.
