Now Video Taping: Skimboard Stunt Man Rich Gardner

And so it came to pass that I found myself in need of an athlete to appear in the new video to promote Gadzooks! A Comically Quirky Audio Book . Fortunately for all, I was able to hire Rich Gardner, a top notch skimboarder whose sense of humor matches his sense of adventure. Local skimboarders are well acquainted with the Gardner Brothers who are credited with popularizing the sport in St. George. I met Mike Gardner a few years ago when he filmed and edited the promo for Jitters-A Quirky Little Audio Book and Yikes! Another Quirky Audio Book . I was more than happy to hire Mike's brother, Rich, to do skimboard stunts for my new production. Rich makes skim boarding look easy, but believe me, this sport takes a lot of athleticism and finesse to pull off. Everyone is excited that Rich is the one photo bombing the camera for this shoot!

Since I could never even understand the plot of the movie, The Matrix , I was a bit apprehensive. But low and behold, Dooley found a way to lay out his theory in terms that someone like me could understand. Using a matrix he created himself, Dooley explains the best and most effective ways to view life changes. Essentially, Dooley says we create our own destiny through our thoughts. “Thoughts become things” is a familiar mantra used by Dooley. In Manifesting Chang
