Promises, Promises . . . . . Germ Warfare . . . .

I am going to learn to not be such an "optimist" some day. The other foot has remained down on the ground, firmly planted, but we will survive it, just as we did the first few years of marriage.. the bugs already swirling around town might be another story!

Three weeks and I am finally feeling less crummy . . which brings me to something I feel is important.

What are we all doing to stay healthy?

I'm "only 59" not that old, reasonably healthy, compared to many in my stage of life, but three weeks and still counting, is a little longer to take to get over a simple cold! So I would like to refer you to this post on another blog. Click HERE. It could save you a lot of money, misery and yes, even your life. I have known people who have almost lost their lives or have, to simple bugs that are going around.
Please teach your kids, spouses and yourselves to


  • Use soap!
  • Use warm water.
  • Scrub as long as it takes to sing the birthday song in your mind.
  • Dry them and then use the paper towel to open the door if in a public place. If there is no trash right by the door, carry it with you until you see a trash can, with the surface the touched the door handle folded in so that you don't touch it again.
This such a simple thing, that it must sound too insignificant but it isn't!

**I really trying to get some more posts together, but between being sick, babysitting grand kids or taxiing them and helping with a couple of weddings, I have been a little overloaded.**

  1. Thanks, Sharron for providing this link to your readers. I am becoming more aware of observing the company culture of places we eat as of late. Recently I spoke with three employees of a local theater in Utah who report that if cups or popcorn bags fall on the floor, they are supposed to retrieve them when the customer isn't looking and sell them. They also store popcorn overnight in regular garbage bags and sell it as "fresh" the next day. I'm never going to look at popcorn the same way!! There was also a fascinating article in the NY Times this week about the value of washing ones' hands as well as using hand sanitizer. Goes right along with your subject matter. Feel better soon!
