One Woman Tries to Break Glass Ceiling While Another One Tries to Repair It


Hillary Clinton is trying to crack the ultimate Glass Ceiling by becoming the most powerful woman on earth as President of the United States.

This afternoon our neighbor across the street was replacing their roof with a new one, and one of the hard-working roofers was a woman.

You go, girls.

    Sheila, The woman who supervised all the painters of our 36 story building in Hawaii was hanging out all over the place. I asked her how the men liked having her for a boss and she said she didn’t ask them, she just bossed them and did a good job of it. My kind of gal. I know I wouldn’t hang on to the outside of a 36 story building. I know some strong women and many are in our family!!! You are one of them! You go, girl!
