Well here it is, the first episode of “Jewels of de Nial,” the project I’ve been collaborating on for the past year. Since we did this mostly throughout the time of the pandemic, we went from a stage production to editing it for a radio show. This venture started with three women, aged 68, 78, and 83. All three still alive and very much kicking. There were obstacles along the way, as there usually are in a collaboration, but the result was nothing but fun.

We shared our life experiences and some of the challenges of growing old and how we deal with those issues. The first episode is linked here and you can purchase a ticket by going to the link for $10. All the material is original, including commercials. The greatest part about this endeavor is that it gave us something to think about other than being held in isolation. When you grow old you don’t have to give up, give in or fold. The good Lord has placed us all on this planet for a purpose.

The first episode has to do with online dating – totally appropriate for this time of the year, with Valentine’s Day at hand. All three women are widowed, but the one in her sixties and the one in her eighties are still willing to venture out. The middle one (me) maybe not so much. She’s hard of hearing and not yet over the loss of her husband – 12 years ago. Three more episodes will follow during the course of 2021.

It actually is almost appropriate that these women would appear on a radio show, since we all began life with the radio being a part of our entertainment. The days of the Green Hornet and the Shadow have returned, only this time it’s “The Jewels of deNial.”

Baby, it’s cold outside!! Why not sit back, grab some hot cocoa and listen to a radio show! Entirely written, produced, and performed by Jewels of DeNial, Northern Starz’s 55+ acting troupe. What is senior life like in the new millennium? Do you wonder what it would be like to date, on-line, after the age of 55? Tune in today as episode one premieres in our Jewels of DeNial series: “The Dating Game” for some great belly laughs!for tickets, go to



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
