Do Not Be Afraid, I Will Not Harm You!!!

I read this on my Facebook tonight. I swallowed hard as I looked at those razor, sharp teeth. I can’t imagine me coming face to face with it. I would probably freeze and maybe pee and crap my pants.

There is a story line along with the photo. There were many, many comments. Some say it is a Boa, others say a Python. What do you think? Is this real or fake? Can this really be?


Multiple System Atrophy, Leukemia and Parkinson’s Disease

Ever since I received my diagnosis of Familial Tremors, I have thought back to my father, brother, uncle, my father’s mother and her sister. There has to be some connection right?

Books used to say Parkinson’s wasn’t hereditary; but I beg to differ. My parents brother, me  and uncle all lived on the same property. They eventually built a new house down the road with the same environment. We all lived surrounded by trees, cornfields, and electrical towers.

Don’t you find it mighty strange that a disease like Leukemia would hit 2 people within a year of each other? Doesn’t it seem very likely that since my dad, his mother, her sister, Al and myself all have Parkinson’s Disease? Even stranger is my father had Parkinson’s and Multiple Myaloma and Leukemia; all at the same time.

I did some research this evening. I found some things but not much. I would very much like your thoughts or input on this topic.

What I found online is; and if you are interested; please take the time to click on the links and read.







Advantages of Break Times

When I go to the Senior Center, I take advantage of the times I go outside to smoke. I grab my camera and start searching for something to photo. I saw this squirrel and took photos of him as he was racing closer to me.

I decided to try something different with the photo and pasted three photos into one.  What do you think? Does it look alright or does it look silly and staged? I saw one of those big, fat crows again. I think he was posing for me.

Here in Indiana it is much cooler today. I have the air off and the windows all  open. There are areas of flooding here in my town. Please keep the folks that are suffering from flooding in your prayers today.
