Hillary Out! Sarah in!

Hillary was a scary person and it is a relief that she is totally out of the picture for president or VP.

It is great also to see a woman back in the picture. Yes she is unknown but she has all of the core values.

Washington Outsider
Proven results as Governor of Alaska
Lifetime member of NRA

What's not to like.

Alzheimer's Memory Walk - Together we can move a nation!

Alzheimer's Memory Walk is something that any of us could do. Want you become a local team captain and help sponsor this in your area. Many of us know someone who has been affected by Alzheimer. If we keep working towards funding research - a cure will be found.

Did you know:

* Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging - it’s a progressive and fatal disease.
* Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.
* Every 71 seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s is most commonly known for it’s impacts on the memory. What many people don't understand is that after the memory is impacted sufferers also experience a “gradual erosion of judgment, reasoning ability, verbal fluency and other cognitive skills”. They gradually wile away to nothing!

It is sincerely a tragedy that our elderly slowly loose their memories and other skills to a mysterious disease, and that this disease ultimately leads to death. It is important to care for them and to fund research to help find answers and to find ways to prevent it.

The Alzheimer’s Alzheimer's Memory Walk does just that! It raises money for research and it is something everyone can help with and should consider taking part in!

“The Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk® is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research! If you team up with the Alzheimer’s Association, you can walk with a purpose – and help move the world closer to being without Alzheimer’s. Together, we can MOVE a nation.”

Will you consider participating in the memory walk in your community? Will you consider at least participating in a virtual walk. It is all about raising awareness and money to care for Alzheimer’s sufferers and to find ways to prevent and cure it. Imagine what our world would be like if we had to go without the priceless experiences and memories of people we love?

"Together we can move a nation!"

Won't you help?

Reading the Blogs! Moving Fast or Slow?

It is very interesting in skimming through many blogs on a days time. I probably should push everything I like to read on a daily basis into a "reader" but it seems that doing this takes away from the atmosphere created by many blogs.

The next thought is that I use things like Entrecard and other services to skim through blogs and get hits on my own. When using this on some days I think, what a waste. There are a lot of good folks out there wanting to say something and I am simply going to their site to hit their card and move on. But wait a minute - in my quest to get many card drops a day I find my self moving slower and slower.

What is the problem? Is my computer running slow? No the problem is that I find myself actually stopping when something catches my eye and I begin to read.

One of those recently was heart wrenching in the fact of a young girl about a year ago who went to have an abortion but through the grace of God, she found that she was meant to be a mother.

She told her own story in a way that was very literate and very moving. Not going to link to the blog at this time but may later.

My thoughts for now!
