From a Nike Poster

Get outside yourself; do one thing, say one thing, that makes the day better for someone else.

The race is not always to the Swift, but to those who keep on running.

I found this on page 105 of an awesome book.

Breakthrough Replicates Human Brain Cells for Use in Alzheimer’s Research –

Every 67 seconds ??

Every 67 seconds is a startling statistic. This means in every 24 hour period, 1,290 new diagnosis of alzheimer’s disease will be made. As it stands right now, none of these will ever be cured. This statistic is for America only.

Research $$ is hard to come by. This is a serious situation. It needs a lot of attention. Our lawmakers need to be told that we need more money for research.

A good time to reblog this one.

With this picture was a saying. The saying was as follows:

Although there are many paths up the mountain, one small step is the only way to begin the climb. And always remember you are not alone and there will be help along the way.

This makes me think of all of the help I have ever had since I was born. There has been a lot. I also know there has been a lot of help for me in my life that I did not even know about.

I think this is a good thing to be thinking about.

Me and my dad

My dad was a U.S.Navy Veteran. He served during World War Two and saw some heavy fighting in the South Pacific. He loved to fish and play baseball with us. I miss my dad.

10/18/2014 evening

It has been a good day. I spent it in Ellijay, Georgia. I was with the Riblet family. I helped Susan and her family park cars for the Apple Festival. It has a connection to the Girl Scouts. It was long day. I enjoyed helping them. I enjoyed talking with hundreds of people. We did not talk about Alzheimer’s, we talked about the weather, their kids, them or anything they happen to bring up. I met some of the other Girl Scouts. I did this for my friend Susan Riblet.

I spoke to my mom and her husband Jack is doing okay.

I have prioritized well, I am focused and I am persistent.

My plans are to leave Tybee Island, Georgia on November 6, 2014.

Mary thinks we should try and prevent disease.

I was out walking with Charity Miles for the Alzheimer’s Association a few minutes ago. I met Mary and her dog. She put an idea in my mind that may have not been there before in the words she used. She said she thinks we should all learn as much as we can, about what we put in our body, so we can prevent a lot of the diseases we are getting. I like the way she put it. It brought back memories of the Nun Study.
