I am no stranger to riding out hurricanes. Hurricane Ivan struck back in September of 2004, as a strong Category 4 hurricane, only a few mph under a Category 5. That was scary as all hell, as you sit helplessly listening to winds howling, feel the ground shaking as yet…
If we all practice what he preaches the world wouldn’t be in the crisis it is right now
The world is in crisis
More specifically, America

As long as hatred dwells in the human mind, real peace is impossible.”
OK. Did this photo get your attention? What are you thinking?
I’m envisioning the delicate crackle sound the pastry crust would be making as I cut into it. Then, once in my mouth, the decadent flavor of the warm custard sauce, enticing my tastebuds to burst with joy. The texture of the succulent fruit within. Oh, the joy of baked perfection.
My anxiety continues to grow as I watch America’s tragedy
First came a global pandemic which found it’s way to America…..
Then came a quarter of the country unemployed…..

A highlight of my life was getting invited to be a guest speaker at the United Nations Headquarters for World Autism Awareness Day 2017. I can still remember walking into that huge amphitheater room and seeing my name placard lit up at my seat. It was overwhelming to say the…
I thought it would still be a few days to see that America hit the 100,000th COVID-19 death. I literally had just checked the news 30 minutes ago, then checked again. There it was. Loud and clear. I burst out crying, my stomach in knots. All these poor souls, their grieving families. I’m shaking to the bone. I’m still in shock at it all. As I look at that horrifying number of 100,000, then I look at the photos of tens of thousands frolicing in massive crowds over the holiday weekend, without a care in the world, as if none of this really happened. I’m numb. I’m crying. My anxiety is paralyzing right now.
This diet might help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and possibly improve it.
