When it comes to fellow humans where to begin? Over the years I have experienced that people need each other and every person has a purpose. Everyone has a God given talent to be proud. Your God given talent will keep you comfortable and happy. I wish they would abolish putting people into classes because of their financial and economic status, but the justifications are for income tax purposes. We look at the Religious preferences that people make with neighborhood choices and social affiliations the judge. In business we are judged by accepted organizations. In order to move the United States forward you have to use a different perspective.

Every person has good, bad and indifferent qualities. I have learned that the most people choose the wrong people to trust. We all make that mistake from time to time within personal relationships and then move on. Everyone wants positive reinforcement, but is not willing to give it. Example in social media the use of the "like" button at Facebook or the "plus one" at Google, and then there is the "thumbs up" at Linkedin. Each social network has a way to encourage the writer. When you post something to your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, business associates, and connections you would like that support for your communication efforts with people.

Everyone should evaluate this year's choices and move on. The Country is moving forward and they have to move with it. When you make the time to support a friend on and off the internet you would like to have some support in return. My family and friends supported me when I started the travel business. They forgot that I supported them through nervous break downs, loss of parents, death of spouses, divorces, weddings, births, children, grand children, showers, home shopping parties, illness, job losses, transportation, and other concerns like the products they sold and promoted. They forgot that I was picking up the tab when I was able and at every event. I was there for them too, and they only see they were there for me twenty six years ago when I started my business. When I drove, I did not ask anyone for gas money.

This is my anniversary of sorts. Reflection, I suffered a serious illness two years ago. I had a heart attack and a stroke on the 14th of November, 2010 at one hospital. I was transferred to another hospital November 15, 2010 for an eight hour open heart surgery. I spent two weeks in the hospital preparing to return home for continued healing. I had to learn many things over again. I spent six weeks on one floor at home with physical therapy, nurses, and occupational therapist coming to my home. Life is too short to continue with a bunch of one-sided relationships with people.

We all have that seven friend syndrome. We are the listener, encourage, motivator, peer, mentor, learner, and busy body for some people. While we have the listener, encourage, and so forth in our lives for us. This year I kept a journal. I am trying to put my life and the people in my life back into balance. I have to switch things around next year. I want to spend more time with the people who want to listen to me and talk with me. I am tired of being just a number or feeling like an obligation, helping make a five thousand head count at Facebook to fit into the schematics of today's numeric society. There are changes to come for my "People".

"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.   Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way." Martin Luther King

“Single Excursion”

“Single Excursion”

Single Excursion returns. A few years back I wrote features about the issues and sports. I received some angry threats and retaliation. I stopped writing for a while. Well anyway, songs can inspire, motivate, depress, and teach. “People make the world go round” is the one that I need for this feature. People travel everywhere, all the time, and go nowhere. Monopolies are controlling our communications and major utilities. The financial arena is in four parts: wealthy, rich, under class, and disadvantaged. Many things in this world are not in balance and that is why we see so many Godly changes. 

Well you have read this far so you might as well keep reading. A few years back I wrote a feature entitled the Disadvantaged American. These are the people who make less then $100,000.00 a year. Living or just getting by with the rising cost of everything for example a loaf of bread, gallon of milk, fresh produce, housing, insurances, and transportation. Remember when it was thirty-five cent and now cost three dollars for the same thing. I see more and more people on the street with signs. 

People are out of work and homeless. In 2005, I researched how many women were living out of their cars with children and pets. I am terrified to research that now in 2012. If you make the time to research, the statistics please send it to me. I will make the time to read your alarming feature. President Bill Clinton was the only president in recent years with a surplus. He was impeached. He had a chick on the side. He had a very good health care plan for working parents with minor children. 

The animal population could be in better balance with a lot more effort. People travel all the time to different parts of the country. Many people place their animals in shelters and vacation homes while they are on vacation. Others lose their pets in national disasters. Why has not someone come up with a system to transport pets from an over populated section of the country to an area that has lost pets due to Natural disasters. The animals would be in loving homes. Yes, you could transport homeless Katie in New York to her Uncle in Texas while you are at it.

The people with power could do more then what they are doing. The radio has a large amount of listeners. I do not listen like years gone by because of the topics and comments. I will not single anyone out but when the identification came up for the voting process. The press complained just like the public. While they had months to prepare they could have focused on helping people obtain what thy needed and showed how to get the identifications and spent less time complaining. Use what you have to help all whom you can and be a blessing while you are able to do so because life is too short. 

This has been your Single Excursion, one mini vacation at a time.

Raymond's Express Travel Services


Raymond's Express Travel Services is a registered business with employer status. In the beginning, we envisioned a lot of employees with a very nice location. Reality quickly set in when several banks turned down our business plan and didn't grant us the loans. We couldn't let that stop us so we prevailed and begged the Zoning Commission for the first home based travel business with a postal location for security.

We went door to door with a staff of family volunteers reaching out to other business owners with vacation ideas. We gave travel parties at friends homes with light refreshments and presented our products. We used the modem to obtain rates for the packages we were promoting and brochures from our travel partners. Our ideas in 1986 would have been perfect for the current society.

Owners of motor coach companies traveled with us to see where we were going, because we promoted different packages. We gave our first crab feast in 1986 to Martins West in Maryland with Trailways. We gave our first Spa weekend to New York with events all weekend long. We were in Virginia so much, they knew us by our name Raymond's Express.

Familiarization tours helps us learn about locations and the Islands first hand: Jamaica, Nassau, Paradise Island and Freeport Bahamas. The family traveled to Canada and Florida for a business learning experience. Hotel Owners invited us for weekends to get to know their area, restaurants, and event packaging. We still accept invitations to date. Knowledge is power.

The Internet came along so we became available online as well. We started working with an Entertainment Manager to increase business with other Business Professionals. We met a few Directors and offered transportation before productions, during production, after productions, and accommodations for the films and film festivals. Reservations form also SAVE 10% at Production Hub when you use our code 5YR7MQE2 appreciated.

We can generate a package for your specified destination with our services, please do not hesitate to ask. We value your privacy.
