  3. 3. January 14th, 2013 Published by: Janet Johnson This once ghost town that has come back to life, is located on the side of a steep hill overlooking the Verde Valley. At the turn of the century when copper mining was at it’s peak, it was called the “wickedest town in the west” because of the many brothels and saloons lining its streets. Today Jerome, Arizona is an artsy town with shops, galleries and restaurants lining its streets. At the top of the hill with magnificent views is a delicious restaurant called the Asylum. This is located in an old hospital which was turned into the Jerome Grand Hotel. When copper mining came to an end and the town was deserted, the hospital was forced to close. They say it may be haunted. Towering cacti fill the desert of Arizona. Desert Region of Arizona The temperature in the desert region of Arizona can climb very high. The day we traveled through this region the thermostat in our car registered 117! You will see many varieties of cacti, including the saguaro cactus which can reach upwards to 50 feet.

I have 3 beautiful children, 2 awesome son-in-laws and 2 wonderfully sweet and amazing grandchildren. I am an Entrepreneur, network marketer and internet marketer. I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, traveling and relaxing at the lake and the beach. Two quotes that I love: "Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process." (Jim Rohn) "If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want." (Zig Ziglar) I truly believe that success comes through helping others. When I lost my job in early 2012, I joined a network marketing company. Network marketing is truly a great industry to be in. It is an industry where you must have a servants mentality. If you cannot help others, you will NOT succeed. I joined into a great Empower Network team with great training. You will receive the same great training if you join my team.
