Just wanted to wish you the happiest of birthdays!!! I hope, even though everyone’s birthday this past year has been different, that it’s still filled with family and friends thanks to programs like Zoom and Skype. I saw on the calendar a few days ago that the Winter Solstice was coming up and I thought of you 🙂
Hope you’re having a great…[Read more]
Jane, I don’t think you have to worry about your followers and fans not reading what you have to say fully. We are here for you, with you and forever. That’s what I find great about Fire Drill Fridays – that I believe it’s going to be continuous. After I’m gone, after your gone, it will still be fighting for the rights of the people and the…[Read more]
Hi Jane 🙂
Just wanted to say a quick thank you for introducing me to Naomi Klein’s book “On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal”. I’m loving it so far. As a Canadian I was wanting to learn more about what exactly the Green New Deal was made up of and this book is definitely helping. Fantastic! Thank you for suggesting it. I…[Read more]
I remember when I first saw that video a few years ago – wow, still gives me goosebumps. I love how you took his comment and twisted it back into something positive. AND that you called him on it! And your message still holds true and always will. Stay on the side of the just and right and we will win.
My personal mantra is “Flip It!”…[Read more]
I know what you mean, Jane. And I think doing those little things helps ones self-worth and mental health far more than whom we are helping. I’ve always felt a little silly doing it but have continued since I was a teenager – whenever I do something that deserves a pat on the back, I praise myself out loud. Just as if I would if I saw a friend…[Read more]
Ha ha ha thanks for the blog post. Even though it had “heavy” issues in it, it was still lighthearted and calming to read. Also, I suffer from Major Depressive Disorder and have been for 3 years now. I thank my lucky stars everyday that being from Newfoundland, Canada I have access to a free family doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, occupational…[Read more]
Thanks! I’ll do a deep movie hunt and see if I can find it.
One more question (if you don’t mind) about your upcoming book. Is there any way that a Canadian can pre-order your book and still get access to the special “behind-the-scenes” video? Maybe a general/no reply email we could send the proof of purchase to from Amazon?
She has a great handshake – ha ha. I remember noticing because since I was a little girl – having a good, firm handshake was always important to me. I guess I was a strange little girl – lol. But I met her in Saint Paul last summer for her “Evening with” show. It was fantastic. I highly recommend you seek out the next one (when the world gets…[Read more]
With reading so many important things lately as so many things happening in the world right now are deemed important – it’s nice sometimes to read a blog entry like this. Nice and relaxing. Thank you for taking the time.
Quick question: As everyone else seems to be catching up and branching out with new tv shows, I’m trying to get to know past…[Read more]
It’s so true that everything is interconnected on this earth. It is heartbreaking that so many people not only don’t feel that connection but will deny its existence altogether. And even though some might roll their eyes at quoting a Disney song on such an important issue or dismiss the song because Disney perpetuated the romanticized, inaccurate…[Read more]
Thank you for the book suggestion. I’ll definitely check it out. You know, with all the reading and research you do on topics you’re passionate about and trying to learn more about – you should totally start a book club. Even just here, for your fans. Just an idea 😉

What a wonderfully positive blog entry. Nice to read in a time where everything online is scary, or angry, or just overall bad for our mental health. Even though Easter is going to be very different this year for us all, I hope everyone can come up with a new tradition this weekend. Revel in the fact that change can be exciting and magical…[Read more]

Couldn’t agree more.
I’m very worried to hear that you’re still going to a community gym. Gloves and spray are not enough. Follow the example of any country other than your own right now. Here in Canada (more specifically Newfoundland) we are being drilled over and over again to stay home. If you go outside, do not leave your…[Read more]
Just wanting to send Jane a fan letter. I read in one of her blogs to send it to PO Box 10927, Beverly Hills, CA 90209 – but another one recently said to somewhere in Atlanta. Anyone know????
First, I just wanted to comment on something you said a few blogs ago. You said the words “…against all odds…you can do it ” and I wanted to thank you. I’m suffering from Major Depressive Disorder and have been for a few years now. It’s a pretty bleak and haunting time but I’m determined, in an almost defiant way, to hang on. And seeing others…[Read more]
