First Female Four-Star General

November 14, 2008




It was clear to me that my Army experience was just going to be a two-year detour en route to my fitness profession.  So when asked ‘Ann, did you ever think you were going to be a general officer, to say nothing about a four-star?’  I say, ‘not in my wildest dreams.’  There is no one more surprised than I – except of course my husband.  You know what they say, ‘Behind every successful woman is an astonished man.’

Water For Africa

October 30, 2008


Wow…. this is an incredibly brilliant idea.  It is a cheap, fun, maintainable way to provide safe drinking water in Africa.

And of course I can’t help applying this to politics, and Barack Obama’s naysayers.  Who says he can’t he make meaningful changes or that we can’t afford to solve our problems – even now.  At least some of the problems of this world could be solved with one “Aha!” moment.  I hope Obama will surround himself with a host of brilliant Aha thinkers!
