    Looking for a gorgeous home in Santa Fe, New Mexico? My beautiful home is officially “off the market”, but I would love to sell it! Built in 1997, it has stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, 3 bedrooms plus an adorable guest casita (approx. 5,000 sq ft total). Classic Santa Fe style with tumbled brick floors, plaster walls, and adobe exterior. Move-in ready and will sell with furniture. Solar electric panels and a 14,000 rain catchment system make the nearly 3 acre property very green. Set on a private, gated road but only 6 minutes to the famous Plaza. Please let me know if you or someone you know might be interested… I will be happy to show you pics and all specs. Thank you!

      Hi Valerie – I saw this Belizean Grove post about your house in Santa Fe. I don’t know if you’re living in it now, but would you consider renting it for a month at Christmas time? THANKS Jenifer Lang – 917-882-8800

      Valerie –
      We’re exploring SF for a second home. Can you email me with more details? We’re coming to SF 1/6-11 to explore (but could do sooner)! loisascott@yahoo.com

    Betty Hudson chairs a campaign to raise additional resources for a girls boarding school in rural Kenya (Kakenya’s Dream) that is transforming a community through education. Any connections to individuals, foundations or others with interests in girls education, eliminating FGM (female Genital Mutilation) and community economic empowerment gratefully and eagerly sought.


    Here’s a website to tell you more about the program:

    From Undraa Agvaanluvsan, Tara: Upon our return to Mongolia in 2008, my husband Dr. Dashdorj and I established an NGO called the Mongolian-American Scientific Research Center.

    A few years ago we changed the name of the organization to the Mitchell Foundation. Gary Earl Mitchell, a retired professor of physics at North Carolina State University, is our PhD advisor. Professor Mitchell is one of the world’s foremost scholars on low energy neutron-induced reactions and nuclear quantum chaos. Over his career, he has advised over 60 PhD students among whom are Presidential Science advisors, directors of US National Laboratories, and a provost of an Ivy League university. Professor Mitchell asked why he deserves such an honor, specifically being the namesake of a foundation, in that he helped my husband Dashdorj and I no more or less than he helped any of his other students. I answered that it is not him, it is us who were given the gifts: my husband and I, one a daughter of coal miner and another a son of nomadic herders, were given the chance to study under his guidance and to work at prestigious laboratories and universities around US, Lawrence Livermore, Los Alamos, Berkeley and Stanford University. I answered it is not him, but the distance in which we traveled. So I wanted to give back to students who are studying science to pass on this legacy.

    Last year, we established the basic science scholarship which was given to 10 students. This year, we are giving to 15 more students, adding biotechnology and including students striving to be veterinarians. Given Mongolia’s strong horse culture, modern agriculture is good economic diversification to reduce reliance on mining. I invite others to join forces with us in naming rights of fellowship, professorship, and scholarship at Mongolian universities. In return, I am happy to host any of the Grove sisters who can come to this part of the beautiful Earth.

    Hello Grove sisters!

    As some of you know, I’m one week away from launching my second feature film – the award-winning BITE ME, a subversive romantic comedy about a real-life vampire and the IRS agent who audits her. http://www.bitemethefilm.com

    We are releasing the film through an innovative 51-screening, 40-city, 3-month, RV-fueled Joyful Vampire Tour of America that is poised to disrupt the film industry and change (for the better) how independent films reach audiences. We will be touring the country from May 6-August 4 and the film will be available on iTunes, GooglePlay and Amazon during that time. https://www.bitemethefilm.com/joyful-vampire-tour

    This is a grassroots, elbow-grease-driven, David-and-Goliath endeavor that is already showing signs of being extremely successful – we sold out our first screening in 36 hours – but, as such, we could use a leg up to get the attention of some national media organizations, since we can’t afford a high-flying PR firm.

    There are a number of different juicy story angles here: 1) independent filmmakers disrupt distribution models to change the way films are watched and offering themselves as a transparent case study for other filmmakers to follow, 2) vampire romantic comedy travels around the country in an RV decked-out to look like a vampire in epic, 3-month road trip, 3) film made almost entirely by female creatives and about a dynamic female character circumvents the system to reach audiences, 4) We’re making a real-time weekly docu-series about the whole thing, etc.

    We are specifically looking for connections to women’s publications (Marie Claire, Teen Vogue, Ms, Jezebel, Bustle.) that might be interested in the women’s empowerment angle and/or larger national media groups (The NY Times, The LA Times, NPR, LA Times, Slate, anything of Oprah’s) that might go for the industry-disruption-with-a-touch-of-the-joyful story.

    We have a press release and full press kit available. Any connections or willingness to forward an email inquiry would be incredible!

    Thank you!

    Opportunity from Maggie Hanson-Muse:
    From Thursday, October 31 to Monday, November 4, 2019, her HRH Sonam Dechan Wangchuck, Princess of Bhutan, and President, JSW Law, and Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Executive Director, Georgetown Institute of Women, Peace and Security will convene a small group of women and men to discuss gender equality and the role of women in enabling and accelerating peace, democracy, equality and sustainability. These two extraordinary women will host the gathering, entitled Women4Impact, in Bhutan. It is an invitation only event that brings together women and men from multiple sectors and functions from across the world. The invitees for this inaugural gathering are referred from existing networks and many are bringing their sons and daughters to include them in the discussion about philanthropy.

    I volunteered and I am honored to serve as an Event Ambassador for Women4Impact. The planners selected Bhutan for the event location because of the country’s enlightened and selfless leadership, its Gross National Happiness (GNH) sustainable development model, and its commitment to measuring prosperity (success) in terms of enduring happiness for all.

    In summary, Women4Impact is an opportunity to learn, reflect, and connect on a topic of great importance, to do so in one of the most beautiful and inspiring destinations on earth, and to make a difference in the lives of young women through our very participation.

    If you are interested in learning more, please contact Maggie Hanson-Muse** via mhansonm@hotmail.com

    **Special Note – As a US government employee, I am prohibited from receiving any benefit or compensation from this program; this is a volunteer project for me because I support quality education, meaningful work, and economic growth for all and especially for women.

    There are opportunities for pre and post extension trips. Please hurry. Space is limited.

    I’m a filmmaker so I never dreamed I would write a book, but here it is. It’s been an extremely organic process. This book was made for the people I’ve met over the years who wished they had a guide or tip sheet to easily talk about their feelings. I am not an expert nor a licensed professional in the world of mental health. I’m a mother, wife, daughter, sister, director, producer, CEO and friend whose mission in life is to help others feel like they matter, they are belong, and they are enough just as they are. This book is for all of us. I hope you’ll check it out especially during the holidays which can be stressful for so many.
    Happy Holidays!
    Scilla Andreen xoxo (Tara)
