Daddy said later, that Mama had had some placenta left inside after my big sister was born, ten years before, and that infection had made her unable to get pregnant again. I was a surprise, ten years after my sister. Born at home, because Mama's doctor, a DO, was not allowed to practice at the local hospital. Started talking at five months. Was breast-fed for two years. Always was treated by osteopaths till I left home after college.

After my car accident in 1968, the stress of working
was too much.
Due to the suppression of my immune system, due to the head injuries in 1963, and 1968, my path in life took an unordinary turn.
I had a situation that I thought was promising, a programming position in a school of Montessori teaching, and a living situation that I could pay for my room and board by painting T-shirts (yes, these were the 70's). When I got to California, both of these possibilities fell apart.
After a few months of essentially homeless living, living in a school bus painted like the Partridge Family, a TV show of that date, that I had traded my VW for, I met and fell in love with my 2nd husband, Albert Soza, in late 1975.
We came North in 1976, after all the TV scares about the California earthquake, on our way to British Columbia. About at Yreka, slightly North, as we got off the freeway to go to a rest stop, the timing chain on our school bus broke. We were pulling our Toyota also.
While we stayed here, getting the motor overhauled on the school bus, in Yreka, we decided that we liked the little former gold-mining town. First we lived in a rented mobile home on ten acres, 3 miles outside Yreka, where we had goats, chickens, rabbits, etc., and a big garden, from 1976 to 1979;
In 1977, I studied intensely everything I could get my
hands on, about Naturopathic Healing, and
wrote this paper, on Toxin Release
Then, we bought this house in town.
My husband Albert had a stroke in summer of 1979;
Albert was 19.5 years older than I was, and he taught me a lot about being your own lawyer, standing up for your rights, etc.

In 1984, it was discovered that I had hyperprolactinemia, and I started on Parlodel;
During our years together, before his early demise
from high blood pressure, artery disease,
and other illnesses in late 1992, he supported
me in my crusades about trying to computerize the legal process.
I was an early pioneer in trying to push the legal community into using
the computer to automate the legal process. They were very
resistant. 1981-1991; my DOS-based,
keyboard-oriented software was listed in THE LAWYERS' PC;
before I could make it a financial success, Microsoft
brought out Windows 3.0, and "the market went that away",
making my software obsolete;
January 1987, we got an IBM PC XT clone, and I continued to develop software in Basic.
I have a long history of lobbying world leaders to choose peace,
since Jimmy Carter and Anwar Sadat, thru Ronald
Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, and George Bush,
and am publishing many of my memoirs on the Internet.
Suffering from spinal arthritis, after being taken
off the Parlodel, I intensely studied stress and nutrition,
I constantly study more about human biochemistry, herbs, and detoxification, and try to document it; More about my background in nutrition is on
Since his death in late 1992, I have struggled to try to adjust to the difference in income. I receive a VA DIC widow's pension.
