Guess what?

Do you know why this client list is so long?

Because Iris Ruth Pastor HATES giving the same speech twice.

She customizes each presentation to fit the needs, interests and demographics of the particular audience she will be addressing.

You are a great writer.

My condolences on the loss of your sister-in-law. Many hugs to you.  May her memory be for a blessing. And please keep me on your mailing list. I was recently honored by being asked to be one of two moderators of the Facebook page “United Colors of Judaism” and I posted your sweet Hong Kong story there.

Shabbat shalom.


Good morning, Iris.

I see you are writing up a storm these days and I think its great!

I am busy on several fronts but am also wondering now if anyone in Cincinnati was interested to know more about PIRATES! as you suggested they might be,  Please let me know what’s up.


Warmest and best regards,

Daryl Gray

I really connect with your “Saturday night” memories.  I fondly recall the weekends in Cleveland (Shaker Heights) and Saturday nights when I had “real” dates and the fun times that I had with my dates and our mutual friends.  I was never a big GTO guy, but I had great times bombing around the eastern suburbs of Cleveland.  Lots of fun memories.  Saturdays have certainly become more “mellow” over the years.  L

Hi Iris…love to read your newsletter each week.  I laugh, smile and grin!

I finally hit on a New Year’s Resolution that I can keep each year!  I simply resolve to expand my horizons each year.  We try to go at least one new place each year or try something new.  Works every time!

Take care and keep writing!

HUG, Diane

Going to be celebrating our 40th anniversary in April!  Lot’s of great Sat nights!



At 53, and living in a newly created “empty nest”, I recently decided I would start playing beach volleyball again. I joined a Tuesday night league at Hogan’s Beach Club. I joined as an “individual player” and took my chances as to who the league coordinators would team me up with. I showed up the first night and as I knew it would be – I was definitely the oldest person out there. Most people were in athletic wear (although not the athletic wear of my day), but of course, there was a few young gals in bikinis. Ahhh, I thought, “You should have seen me back in the day on the beach playing in my bikini!” Of course, I quickly ignored them and proceeded to warm up. I knew I could “show them how to play volleyball” LOL I proceeded to meet my new team-mates, none with much experience :-), and we warmed-up together. I must admit that overall our team finished at the bottom, but I’ve made new friends and have had a lot of fun. The season is coming to an end (we start playoffs next Tuesday) and even though I was a little tight the first couple of Wednesday mornings after, I ended-up having a great time and can say that I’m one of the better overall players out there, still. I will sign up for the next 6 week league and am considering moving up from the “intermediate” level to the “competitive” level. Gotta do it while I still can!!

Just thought you would get a kick out this. Hope to see you soon.
