Nomad families, Free Travel Tips e-book & more on that Las Vegas memoir.
A Visit With A Nomad Berber Family
En route to southeastern Morocco’s Merzouga Dunes, Cam Usher enjoyed the rare opportunity to visit a family of Berber goat herders at their temporary spring encampment.
She got to see first-hand how they cook and eat, where they sleep, and the challenges this nomad family faces in a country that now has decreed all children must attend school.

That old devil, Time Management!Remember a couple of months ago I wrote about time-blocking? How I was experimenting with blocking my day out in 15-minute time segment “appointments” in order to get more done?
I gave it up. Here’s why:
Not only did I feel pressured—not good for a creative type— I found I felt guilty if I veered off of it.
I remembered some advice given me years ago by an advertising mentor: do one thing and do it really well.
So now I am working on FOCUS. Sticking with one thing until it’s DONE. And keeping in mind that DONE is better than PERFECT.
That’s how I was able to (after 38 years!) finish my memoir…“Coming to Las Vegas, a True Tale of Sex, Drugs & Sin City in the ‘70s”
This is the story about how I went to Las Vegas in 1973 to join a circus and ended up opening the original MGM Grand Hotel as a cocktail waitress.
Please buy the e-book here: Coming to Las Vegas And if you like it, it would mean a lot to me if you would go to Amazon, rate it, and write a few lines saying what you liked about the story.
