Joline Godfrey of Ojai has a solution for the "glass ceiling" that's keeping women from being fully represented in the top echelons of corporate America: Forget trying to break it down, get out from under it instead. Godfrey, 42, is the author of "Our Wildest Dreams: Women Entrepreneurs Making Money, Having Fun, Doing Good" (HarperCollins, 1992), which is cementing her role as one of the most visible spokeswomen for a growing movement--women who have gone into business for themselves.

Thanksgiving is the one holiday we generally celebrate without guilt or stress. We join family and friends to feast (no calorie counting) and there is no pressure to shop for presents. So let us remember a writer who in the mid-1800s lobbied to have Thanksgiving declared a national holiday. Sarah Josepha Hale (1788-1879), the author of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and editor of Godey's Lady's Book, began pleading in editorials, and personal letters to President Lincoln for the holiday.

Women are now equal and aggressive players in the marketplace, right? Well, maybe not. Many women still hang back, whether it's trying out for "Jeopardy," competing for jobs or signing up for the Internet, social scientists say. So Ojai author Joline Godfrey ("Our Wildest Dreams") has produced a second book, "No More Frogs to Kiss," which encourages young girls to seek education and learn entrepreneurial skills in order to achieve economic equality.

We celebrate our nation's 217th birthday this weekend. Congress declared our independence on Thursday, July 4, 1776, in the city of Philadelphia and 56 men had the courage to sign that "Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America." I wonder if there were soothsayers, fortunetellers or readers of animal entrails who predicted disaster or success based on the dates the founding fathers chose to declare independence?

Skeptic is my middle name. So when I encountered Joline Godfrey and her book about women entrepreneurs, "Our Wildest Dreams," I thought, "Oh no, another one of those superficial, full of platitudes books." Not this time. Godfrey, on Ojai resident, has written a wonderful, witty, the-way-it-is/the-way-it-can-be book about and for anyone in business. Her credentials include 10 years through the ranks at Polaroid. The firm backed her when she spun off her own company, which she sold in 1990.

Next week we'll be turning the calendar to September and gearing up for school, football and a barrage of attack ads from political campaigners. Meanwhile, I'm flipping back through calendar pages to recall some books produced by local authors. It's an impressive list: romance, biography, finance, children and young adult, mysteries, true crime, war adventures, history and science.

The bride arrived in a purple sedan chair, the groom on a pink and purple elephant. The happy couple stood on stair steps to reach their five-tier cake. And so, on a sunny Sunday afternoon, 5-year-old Orly-Reine Sibony and 5-year-old James Maher were "wed." The ceremony, fashioned after a centuries-old Moroccan Jewish custom, was ecumenical, to say the least. Orly-Reine is Jewish. James has a Salvadoran-Basque mother, Alicia, and an Irish-Syrian father, Joseph--both Roman Catholics.
