Well it is a little less than a week since New Year’s Eve. How are you doing? Did you set short and long-term goals for your resolutions? How are you doing at sticking to them?
I didn’t set any myself as far as resolutions go. I did tell myself I am going to look up instead of looking down. If I wake-up and talk to God first thing, my day does seem to go better.
What I would like to do is have a web page outside the box of Facebook. I would like the knowledge that I will speak to families and caregivers. I have made great progress inside the walls of FB; but how many more could I reach if I could get in search engines.
Tonight I am going to be talking to my granddaughter about it. She is a whiz and much smarter than me in this area. My goal is to be able to reach the top five search engines, so when someone is searching Multiple System Atrophy, my page will at the very least pop up in their searches.
At one point I had checked into someone building my page. I guess my big mistake was not letting the person know I don’t work and money is tight. So aside from talking to my granddaughter, I am reaching out to you also.
I want something simple, available, easy to add words and photos. Do you know someone or of a place I could go? I looked at Yahoo who has a free web page builder, but it doesn’t reach anyone except my friend’s circles.
I want to thank some more people for sending packages and cards to Al. When he comes home tomorrow morning all of these goodies will be waiting for him.
I want to thank Ute. Ute, you sent Al the cutest little bear card, and the package? I will let Al open it tomorrow.
I want to thank Ar Neal. Thank- you so much for the card, one for Al and one for me.
I want to thank Christina M. Thank-you so much my friend. A card for Al and a card for me.
I want to thank Cynthia M. I love the advent calendar. Al will enjoy opening each window starting tomorrow. Thank-you very much.
You all are wonderful friends and bloggers. Christmas is closer than we want it to be. Lots of rushing and bustling from now until then.
If anyone else still wants to send him a card please email me at
for the mailing address.
I wish I could give each of you a big hug, I am so appreciative.
I wanted to thank you for the Christmas cards that you sent for Al. He had received one last week and he still holds it like it is a bar of gold. Today he received 4 cards. I am so thrilled for him. I just wish I could reach through the screen and give you a hug. This means the world to me.
If anyone else would like to consider sending him a card, please email me at
for his address.
I want to thank:
Alastair. Alastair the glitter and little animals are so cute! Thanks so much my friend. Alastair is a blogger here at WP, and takes wonderful photographs.
Kathy B. sent the most adorable card with a puppy wearing a red Santa hat. Sue, thank-you so very much. Al loves this card.
Linda S. your card is a blessing. Linda’s husband also has MSA. For her to take time out to send my brother a card means so much. Thank-you Linda.

http://kattermonran.com I was reading Al‘s blog. I just love what he does with his camera so I try never to miss a post. Tonight he was showing me a drawing he had done. He got the inspiration from another blog named, http://playamart.wordpress.com
So of course since Al liked it I knew I would too, so I hopped over to this brand new blog and looked at the fantastic art work. Now you all know I can’t draw with a crap, but the desire is deep within me, so I continue to make a fool out of myself by trying. I thought after I looked the fabulous art over I would give it a shot too. I knew I could not even compare my work to theirs but you know what? I had a good time. While I was sketching I forgot about all that goes on around me. For ten minutes I was with me, all alone with my charcoal and pad.
So here is my version of what I saw and my little scribbles. You can see the fantastic work that was done on the second link I gave you, but please don’t compare theirs to mine. I don’t want you to laugh until you wet yourself.
I want to thank Toni and Lori for sending Al a card. He can’t open them anymore and refuses to break the habit of wearing his glasses at all times, so he can’t read the cards. He has me open them and read them to him and he sits back and smiles. He tells me the same thing every time he gets a card. ” I can’t believe I have all these friends.”
If anyone still wants to send Al a card please email me at; firstname.lastname@example.org for his address.
- Al’s Card Update (terry1954.wordpress.com)
I have had a few ask about our address and I have sent the required information. Another blogger suggested a brilliant idea. Since Al is becoming confused and forgetful, sending a small photo of yourself or who ever is sending the card would be fantastic.
