Nearly four decades ago Dorothy Wilhelm was a widow with six children and as far as she knew, no employable skills. She could not even drive her car on the freeway. Today she still has six children, but everything else has changed.

She is a columnist, humorist, speaker and broadcaster, she  has spoken to audiences from Bangkok to Nashville. Dorothy hosted Beacon Award winning My Home Town on Comcast TV for another decade and she now does an Dorothy now does an internet radio broadcast on the SOB Radio network. (That stands for Spunky Old Broads. All the hosts are women over fifty.)

She does Tai Chi three times a week, including Sword Form – and she drives anywhere she wants.
