    Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    I'm sure you know the feeling of something being soooooooo far away, and then all of a sudden, it's on your doorstep. That's how I feel as the Journey is starting in less than one week, on Monday, November 28. Umberto and I will leave Los Angeles in the morning and meet Vicki in Atlanta and will arrive in Rio de Janeiro November 29.

    The original itinerary included Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru, for the first month. However as I was putting the Journey together, I realized Brazil is so big and there are so many different places to see, the entire month should be there. I checked this out with Vicki and she was thrilled! I enlisted the help of a fabulous Brazil Specialist, Jill Siegel, and she has been of enormous assistance in planning everything. One of the highlights will be a 4-day stay at the Ariau Amazon Towers in Manaus, right in the heart of the Amazon Jungle. My words cannot properly describe this wonderful place, so please click on this link to see this amazing place for yourself.

    If you are considering a trip to South America, and especially to Brazil, here's some information about Jill and how to contact her:

    Jill Siegel is a Brazil Travel Specialist with over 20 years experience. Her clients have been as interesting and diverse as the great Latin-American writer, Isabel Allende and actress Susan Sarandon to the great great grandson of Charles Darwin, writer -- Matthew Chapman. She has represented Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel- The Treetop Lodge for the last 15 years as well as running her own travel agency South American Escapes. Jill is available for consultations, custom designed travel itineraries, and all aspects of travel planning to Brazil and South America. Thanks a lot Jill.

    I must admit to some nervousness. Even though this is my third trip around the world, I still worry. I worry about everything and anything. I worry a lot about how I will get along with the six Traveling Partners, and how they will get along with me. I worry about my health traveling in rugged areas for six months. And on and on. But I don't worry about the rooms here at the hotel!!

    I also will try to devote one hour a day to work with Joe on advancing the "greater cause" (Incidentally, does anyone have any suggestions for a name for the greater cause??) via e-mails and telephone calls. I am 100% committed to Promoting Romance, Adventure, and Recognition for People 45 and Over and especially 50 and over. Speaking of the cause, check out the testimonial from Peggy below about her experience with PerfectMatch. Way to go, Peggy!

    So, it's off to Rio with Vicki!! (And Umberto!) My next Newsletter and blog will be from deep in the heart of the Amazon. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your family and loved ones.

    As always, safe travels.

    Ciao for now,

    From Peggy:

    "To the rest of the SB hopefuls-I joined Perfect Match about 10 days ago, and am overwhelmed-I have had two dates with the same man, a brunch date this Sunday, and so many e-mails, I am having trouble keeping track-it does wonderful things for the ego! So.....if you haven't joined, you might give it a try!"

    Ladies and Gentlemen, many of you have taken the free PerfectMatch Compatibility Profile to learn more about themselves to get better prepared to meet and date. You should try it out, too.

    One of the criteria for the 22 Finalists was to take the Free Compatibility Profile and I used the results in making my decisions.

    I did take the Free PerfectMatch Compatibility Profile, and it described me to a "T." It was simple and took less than 15 minutes. Of course, the proof is in the pudding, and only time will tell how this service works for you. My recommendation is to take the Free Compatibility Profile (click here to try it), and if you like what you see with the Profile results, and your budget can afford it, give it a try, and then later tell me your feelings. Good luck. We all are looking for our Perfect Match!!!

    Many people have asked about our association with PerfectMatch. After seeing Duane Dahl, the founder of PerfectMatch on Dr. Phil this past June, and doing some research, we felt this was a company we would like to start an association with to see what kind of results they might provide. I know from working with the Oprah folks how careful they are to research their guests, as does Dr. Phil, and this encouraged me. (Photo courtesy of "Merry Mary".)

    From Linda- "You asked for feedback regarding PerfectMatch. I have subscribed to several online relationship sites with varying amounts of success. However, I believe PerfectMatch has combined the most succinct and efficient program available for those of us with the mature status. Not only is help readily available if needed, the site navigation is seamless. I believe the questionnaires are very well done and if participants answer truthfully, the potential for finding the "perfect match" is excellent."

    From a reader in Georgia- "I never desired nor felt the need to join a dating service. On a lark, I decided to try the free personality profile with PerfectMatch. I was floored and amazed how right on they were on about me."
