Finding a New Beginning

Finding a New Beginning

A stay-at-home mom turned healthcare provider shares inspiration for realizing your dreams later than you expected!

When Corine Riedell was just 21 years old she was already a stay at home mother of 3.   She had completed high school early through independent study and had quickly moved into the adult responsibilities that come along with child rearing, namely putting other’s needs before your own. But putting her children’s upbringing first didn’t mean putting off her own career goals and personal aspirations. Her peers were off at college or enjoying the freedom of being an adult with the lack of responsibilities living at “home” provides. Even though Corine didn’t have either luxury she also didn’t feel she was missing out on anything that couldn’t’ wait. She tucked her dreams away for later and enjoyed her kids while they were young.

Buffalo Records

Buffalo Records finds its new home in a white adobe building topped with a Spanish-style roof. When you enter the record retailer nestled in residential Ventura, you may catch a slight, musty aroma possibly emanating from the old vinyls. Flanking the walkway to the register are rows of boxes on the floor, filled with un-shelved "2 for $1" vinyls, the shop’s recession special.

Strike! And we’re not talking about baseball baby!

 “Yabba Dabba Doo” and “Lets Rock” would be the response of my bowling buddies Fred Flintstone and Al Bundy. The 805 offers a good variety of bowling alleys and they all have their perks. I’m sure most of you know, but for those of you who don’t… lace up those funny shoes and put those twinkle toes to work. Throughout Ventura and Oxnard there are three bowling alleys to choose from. Ventura offers Buena Lanes (located by Skating Plus), and Ventura Bowling Center downtown off of Thompson. Oxnard offers Wagon Wheel Bowling off of the 101 fwy. So let’s answer the main question that is on all our minds, YES!!! , all bowling alleys come with fully stocked bars and lounges. For those of you 21 and over, there is nothing wrong with warming up at the bar; bowling is a sport after all. For those of you under 21, I think they have soda machines. Now some people say bowling is like disco, dead. Well those people obviously haven’t listened to my playlist, because bowling is stronger and more diversified than ever. It’s the number place to take a date, regardless of the age range.

Jill Sattler

 Reposted one of our favorite articles from 2010, due to a crash a few years ago we lost a great deal of articles & images. Finally retrieved all of the images to accompany the article. Please enjoy again.
Growing up immersed in art might have shaped the course of Jill Sattler’s life. Splitting her time between Santa Barbara and New York, due to her father’s Broadway career, Sattler longed for something stable in her art which is why she spent most of her time inside her studio in New York experimenting with paint and enjoying herself.
