Summer’s Final Call

It’s hard to believe it will soon be mid-August. School bells will be ringing, signaling the end of Summer and the beginning of “sweater” weather, football games and pumpkins.

I caught this image during my stroll to our Whole Foods Market this past weekend. The flowers reminded me to stop and enjoy these fleeting days before they are history.

This image doesn’t do it justice (an aerial shot would have been ideal) the full shot of the anchor is breath-taking.

So, I’ll leave this here . . until next time.


ICYMI: Monthly Head Scratchers

ICYMI: Monthly Head Scratchers

I enjoy a good chuckle with my daily news and this sampling of stories will not disappoint.

  1.   Gimme that . .
  2.   Bag Check
  3.   Locked and loaded

The plan is to make this a monthly post, so stay tuned and we  appreciate your continued support of this blog.

Keep laughing, until next time.

Anything can happen in NJ!

Anything can happen in NJ!

This slogan was part of a local lottery commercial and at first I thought it was just a “catch phrase” then this happened more here.

Now, this raises some questions for me. Is there a stipend for gas? Can I leave early to beat traffic? What about the whole safety “thing”?

Companies are now finding “clever” ways to cut overhead costs and increase profits, but c’mon!! This is such a bad idea.

Scratching my head until next time.

I hate Alzheimers.

I hate Alzheimers.

My family have been fighting for a few years. . beside our Mother. She was diagnosed with Dementia a few years ago and five years ago we moved her out of her Senior apartment, when she would lose her wallet, couldn’t find her way back home on a street she’d walk hundred of times before or remember what she ate for dinner.

Dementia and other cognitive diseases attack the brain which is the body’s “mother board” that controls everything from motor skills to speech. There are times I am angry to watch my “s-hero” struggle to remember the days of the week, the town she lives in or even the names of her grandchildren.

It is devastating and takes a toll on the caregivers and supporters alike.  There isn’t a way to save my Mother from this disease, but I will continue to fight on her behalf for the future families that will be affected.  I will be participating locally in the Walk to End Alzheimers. This charity walk will to help raise additional money needed for research, support services, and legislation here.

You may think you don’t know of anyone whose family has been affected by Alzheimer’s or Dementia — now you do.  Please help us win this “battle”.

. . .until next time.
