beginnings for 2005!
Today is a
New Beginning Day! Its 2005 and we are lucky to be
alive! Are you filled with New Years resolutions?
Or are the resolutions like Christmas tree ornaments,
something to be packed up for a year or something to be
broken? Or are they as old fashioned as Betty Boop? The
arrival of the New Year is a wonderful opportunity for
self-improvement, renewal, or adventure for what the
unknown will reveal to us one day at a time.
was wonderful; it even included a beautify baby and made
everything great! I got to see 34 of my children - all
except one! One of them got engaged, one had to go to
Chile to be the best man in a wedding, another new baby
is due shortly, and two new girlfriends were our guests.
It was all so exciting and I have had The
Vapors for a few days ever since because of all the
excitement and Ill survive the Vapors
(which is exactly what that implies - nothing, probably
exhaustion.) Its my favorite time of year.

back door shut and the front door had about three inches
of slick ice on the porch and steps. When I finally got

ponder is Harry Truman was first elected to the Senate at
age 50. Great bonuses come at the end of your life, such
as knowing your grandchildren and when they have
children, your great-grandchildren, enjoying new and old
friends, exciting adventures, (even if its watching
a great television show). Its amazing how times
have changed. We used to eat dinner at home and go out to
a movie. Now, we go out to dinner and come home for a
movie or taking a trip to the uttermost parts of the
earth or sometimes little trips around home. Marvel at
the wonder that comes with each new day.
They say you
are as old as you feel, so feel young, think young. Take
care of yourself, eat right, sleep enough, and be
absolutely sure that you take your selenium every day. It
has been discovered that everybody who has cancer has no
selenium in his system. Selenium is a cancer preventive
and actually is a poison that destroys cancer cells.
Selenium wont cure cancer if you have it but take
it before you have cancer so you wont get it.
Doctors are experts at medicine but seldom study diet.
Try it; youll be glad you did.
note, have a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
