Wordnet Travel Info

Our new travel venture is unique to the non-profit industry in that it provides us with a travel website similar to Travelocity®, and Expedia®. It has all the selections and features of other highly advertised booking websites. It was a gift to us from one of our supporters and we are trying to make the most of its benefits.

Wordnet travel’s website provides an alternative source for you or your parishioners to book business, personal and group travel… travel that is most likely already booked online. In fact, current statistics show that as much as 85% of all personal travel is booked online.

It would be a simple shift to book travel at It provides competitive travel rates or better, and helps this Catholic Television Ministry serving not only the Diocese but also the Church at large. According to a recent Cone/Roper study, “86% of all Americans would likely switch brands to support a cause when price and quality are equal.”

Most importantly, each time travel is booked using this site Wordnet Productions receives 40% of all the travel commissions. This would produce a source of fresh money from Wordnet third party vendors, and not from you, the travelers.

One of the tremendous benefits of our program is that even with a small portion of you or your parishioners and supporters using the program, it still produces a significant financial return for this ministry.

Check out the “Honeymoon Registry” under the events button when reviewing Here, newlyweds can create their own page of information, register their wedding as they would at any store and allow friends and family to provide a practical gift. It is a very nice feature. Other features provide the usual booking offerings for planes, car rentals, hotels, tours, cruises, flowers and gifts. If you have any questions, please contact me via phone or email. (1 951 847 8106 or

Wordnet Productions is simply saying: “Instead of booking your travel with someone else book it with us. You will get the same prices or better and you will be helping a cause you believe in.” Turn your Vacation into Donations! It is simple and it won’t cost you a dime!

Susan Dobson is looking to re-launch her spiritual talk radio program

I am looking for a radio and or TV station that is looking for a show that offers content that is, Contemporary, Compelling, Controversial, Upbeat, Entertaining, Educational, sprinkled with name celebrities, authors and scholars, and a little laughter...That combination makes for heartfelt listening; a winner show and more important provides for the needs of those that are suffering and feel alone and out of answers.

My radio talk show, Another Way of Living Talk Radio is that show. 1 in 3 people have or are touched by some form of addiction today. Mix that up with those who suffer dual diagnosis with mental illness, depression, loneliness and grief - we have a lot of suffering going on and people looking for all the wrong places. We have a serieous problem, a society that is suffering from a spiriutal malady and doesn't know it. People who are looking to fix an inside job and heal the hurt from the outside; outside resources that are really the source of their suffering; money property and prestige and today, drugs and alcohol.

AWOL Talk Radio is live, on-air, caller driven and solution orientated. Solutions that come from the inside, for It is only when we surrender, run out of answers that we finally sucumb to the only one that can help us. GOD! The GOD who resides within us, in our hearts, in our truth; those answers that lie in wait, in the quiet of our comunication with God. When spiriutally sick, it is the last place we go.

And that is where AWOL and I come in. I faciliitate or co-create with my clients who are stuck, in helping them get unstuck, you might say, I provide the means for a SPIRITUAL INTERVENTION. Those that are suffering are disconnected and search desperately to be connected or reconnected with something, anything than to live with the pain of self and self destruction. The only answer is GOD. We are all looking to be reconnected with the Father of us all, preparing for our journey home, which really begins at birth!

The show speaks for itself. I have attached a link to my website that I invite all to check out and listen for themselves. I look forward to hearing from you and am open to suggestions on how to get this much needed show up and running again.

Here's my website:

Can you help ParishWorld help your home parish?

Your home parish has a website. But almost no one reads it. Why? Because it contains mostly mass schedules, phone numbers and not much else. And just like every other parish website in the U.S., your parish website was developed as a Technology project - instead of the Pastoral and Evangelization project it needs to be. Sure it just could be the prettiest parish website out there, but chances are it offers very little evangelization and catechetical value to its visitors.

Can you help me help your home parish? Please arrange an introduction for me to speak with your pastor. Or just give me the name of your parish and pastor and we will take care of the rest. Seriously, we can help your home parish. Even if they don't know yet that they need our help.

As a way of saying thanks, we will donate $300 to your parish in your name if they sign up for our services.

Check us out here:

Thank you and God bless.
