Welcome Corinna and Phil Jones:

Thursday Apr. 24, 2008: Santa Monica-

We had a welcome wine and Mona-Vie tasting party at our place for our delightful Kiwi friends Corinna and Phil Jones. A dozen of our friends came together on a beautiful Spring evening, on our new hardwood floor. Ol' 16th St homestead looked nice and sleek. The health benefits and superb business of Mona-Vie, the super-juice blend, were discussed among interested and sophisticated parties. Johnny Disco wore his spats and did a bit of a moonwalk, Mary Lindes, Ida Mason, Shannon Sturgess and Mary-Beth (who shared her moving story about first drinking Mona-Vie, aiding in healthy recovery) along with our son Garrick and cousin Jonathan. We adjourned at 8:30 when we took them back to the Sofitel, stopping at Dolores for a good grub up. Go to to learn more about the juice.

Saturday Apr. 26, 2008:

British Consulate- June St, Hancock Park: British Consul General Bob and Sharon Peirce welcomed a few hundred of their friends to the BritWeek tea party on a warm Saturday afternoon at the consulate, which had a decidedly Epsom Derby air. Women in hats, men in suits and open collars, good food and music made for a festive and charming day. I was happy to see Ruth McCartney, JoAnn Lichtenstein, Gillian Campbell, Mindy Gail, Anna and Barry Harvey, Michael Laine, Paul Wright, Ollie Dunning, John and Stephanie Mowbray, Ross King and Brianna, Julian Stone, Nicola and Gavin Scott, and make some new friends. There is a vibrant British community in Los Angeles and I am happy to keep up with them. See enclosed pictures of the lovely afternoon. Afterwards, we had a light supper at Orso with Wayne Tempero, the New Zealand self-defense expert who may be doing some TigerLight work with us quite soon. Check the News on this site to keep up with that, and on

Our First MonaVie tasting, with Corinna and Phil Jones

Shelly and I thank you for being a part of our "new floor-warming" party last night.The New Zealand Wines were tasty. How lovely that our guests and co-hosts, Phil and Corinna, having just arrived yesterday, were able to meet our friends, share the Mona-Vie story and have a few laughs. Barry looked great in his new Mona-Vie track jacket! Thanks to the boys for letting us keep the game room, and doesn't that Wii cordless tennis game look fun! Heck, Jack was fishing on it before the end. Speaking of which, you could see why we are hooked on the MonaVie blend of 19 superfruits, starring the Acai berry; it's tasty and effective--and fun to use and work with. Please, y'all, in a few days let me know how it's working for you and next time we do this let the reason be to hear your story. Our homes* will be healthier.
Fond regards, Hyde-White's.*MonaVie tasting partys work well on carpeted floors, too!
