Late afternoon on the East Coast. Will "wrap up" comments for July and set up the August posting place. Yesterday evening I helped get our neighbor's 10 year old female pitt-mix dog to the emergency services at one of the town vets. She was bleeding heavily from her vaginal area. The very kind vet who owns the establishment got her in and kept her for the night. She has a "tumor" and will get "surgical removal" to stop her bleeding. We have been taking our pets to this vet office for about 30 years. The guy who owns the dog took her to a vet in another town and was told she had a "vaginal infection". After six days she was much worse (did get some antibiotics). Her name is Bella -- I take her walking with our dog when she is okay. Hopefully she will have more time to just be a dog and not have to go through all these problems. She should have had the surgery years ago. Take some time just to be with your pets and "make memories" as they age. Lots of "named" storms building up in the "tropics". Hurricane season in this area isn't over until the end of November.

Our air quality is not as pristine as it was in April, but there are forest fires in California in addition to everyone traveling again. More planes in the sky and more cars on the interstate across the river. Because we sit in the north end of the Willamette Valley the car pollution tends to roll into a haze.

Kind of overdid it kayaking yesterday. Luckily, two nice young people helped me carry it back to the car. They offered all on their own. Did catch a great picture of a crane sitting in a tree.

Air quality is why I live where I live. in a town of 2100. Pretty centrally located, go 50 miles in any direction to get to a town of 20,000. Dr. said I had to live 250 miles from the nearest city. Little Rock 200,000 is 350 miles away.

Hi Group! Just read your latest postings and love your wisdom and expertise! Really miss being around children -- did our church nursery for about 16 years and had all ages. Haven't been to church since my spouse got diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. He has never been a person who wants to go to church -- his parents made him do too much of that growing up. Only a couple of children in our neighborhood and they live on the other part of the housing development. Mainly, I just try to keep my spouse well and fix whatever he is able to eat after his 5 hour chemotherapy treatments. I demanded he find someone to do our acre of lawn care because he just cannot do it safely anymore. We are usually around 103-4 degrees by 11:00 a.m. each day. Someone in our neighborhood is usually mowing their lawn from daylight to dusk. Hence, the "air quality" isn't great, plus we live next to a busy road with constant traffic (emissions, etc.). Have had a couple of rainstorms to cut the dust down this week, but mainly it has been more thunder than rain. Our schools aren't starting until Sept. and the parents have three choices -- letting the students stay home, small classes and lots of protective procedures, or a mix of the two. Our granddaughter here is at a volleyball camp all week -- only a few participants and all the precautions in place. I need to get our dog to the vet. for his immunizations -- they are still "back-logged" due to being closed since March. Another month coming -- sure hope life gets "back on track" and the virus eases up. Our oldest son and his wife and two children live in Florida -- they aren't doing too well with their "numbers". Stay safe, keep those doggies moving, eat more fresh fruits and veggies...

My biggest problem was the mothers that kept asking if I couldn't just give them a pill it was a pain bringing them to class 3X a week.

Mutt is almost 14 now. He still wants his walks and still thinks they should be 3 miles. He keeps forgetting he stops at just over a mile and I'm not carrying a 55 pound dog home

It is amazing what works with different children. I had some that calmed with a weighted vest and others hated it. I had several that just needed to run. My oldest GD thrives on impact sports. I wanted her to take more martial arts, but she was never able to fit the classes around her college schedule. When I was in school we had three outdoor recesses and a gym period a couple days a week. They have taken most of that away from the children.

Buds got a lot of compliments at the vet for being old, fit and well muscled. He is mad at me today. He wants to go for a walk, but he keeps forgetting how hot it is outside. Once out he really doesn't want to be there either.

When I was in marshal arts, upper belts had to help teach. They asked me to take the ADHD children that were part of a study of exercise and ADHD. They started out 1 on 1. I got one boy the 1st of DEC, He hadn't moved on to small groups yet when the children went back to school after the holidays. After the first week the teacher told the mother she was so glad the child was finally on meds. He was a different child. The end of Jan, the boy was doing good in small groups and we felt he could join a class with the right teacher assistant. About that time The teacher told the mother she just didn't get it the boy was doing so much better and getting better everyday, but showed non of the side effects of meds.

If you are wondering the results of the study, exercise helps these children. Exercise that keeps the child moving such as Marshal Arts, do laps, running swimming whatever, and such worked best, Exercise that had breaks between the spurts of exercise, such as base ball didn't work as well, but any organized exercise helped.

Thank you for that list. My cholesterol went up this year. I am at 202 which is high for me. I spent quite awhile eating a lot of peanut butter and butter on things, but have finally broke that habit and my once weekly ice cream treat. The doctors have been pushing me to go on statins. I keep refusing. They make me feel awful. I have a new DO and she is even trying to get me to take them. I know 202 is high, but according to Kaiser it is still in the normal range. I pretty much am eating a plant based diet now with fish and chicken. I have a video conference with DO on Monday and am going to try again to fix this problem with healthy food and exercise. With my back and all the tooth problems I had last year I had a lot to recover from. A year long tooth infection was not a good thing for the heart. It took them nine months to make a decision about my infected tooth and pull it and I had to fight to get antibiotics. I keep thinking that may have been what created my plaque issues. Anyway, thank you.

I am sad when children are put on medications to get them to fit into a box. There is so much joy in hyperactive kids and there is a reason people call it the "terrible twos". You just roll with it and keep the child supplied with lots of positive stimulation in the form of long walks. Mom used a harness and leash on me out in public. I am totally not against that. Today people would be horrified. It gave me freedom. I was able to run around her without having to hold her hand. I could stop and explore things. My dad's method was to take me for long walks. He said as a two year old if he let me set the pace I could walk two miles. He also said he placed bets with his friends as to who could climb to the top of the upright grand piano first. And yet, I was taken to church and had expectations of good behavior placed on me. They never said "Oh well" and turned on the TV. Well maybe they did sometimes. They mostly just kept me really busy and engaged in new and exciting experiences. I remember discovering ants with my Mom. Amazing little critters.

Buds goes in for immunizations and check up today.

Hello group! Some lively discussions going on! Besides having a BSN (4 year nursing degree), I have a Masters' Degree in Public Health and Gerontology. After having been a nurse for about 35 years, I wanted to teach nursing. My boss usually gave me the students for the class who needed to learn about giving injections to babies and children. For two school years, we did the
childrens' well-baby care at a downtown Charleston hospital. We gave lots of injections to protect the children. Lots of crying by our patients, but the students were older and most were mothers themselves. This was in the 1990s -- now there are more types of vaccines added to the ones that were available then, including the hepatitis and the influenza shots. Sometimes the children reacted to the "agents" that the medications were suspended in. My sister has a 2 year old grandson that is very busy (an only child). His mother decided that he had ADHD and actually found some doctor to give him medications. This is not recommended until they are older. They did make him sleep more. Social services got involved and the boy is being watched very carefully. Changing subjects -- my August Harvard Medical School newsletter has a good article about food that can help lower your cholesterol. In our part of the South, even young children start having cholesterol problems due to the high-fat diet. Here is a list of the "best" foods to eat that are good sources of fiber or unsaturated fat (or both). Oatmeal and barley; white beans; avocado; eggplant; carrots; almonds; kiwi fruit; berries; cauliflower; soy; and salmon. By avoiding meat, cheese, and other high-fat dairy products such as butter, half and half, and ice cream, you can get your levels lowered without taking cholesterol-lowering medications. The use of olive oil as a heart-healthy fat comes from extensive research over the last 30 years. (Harvard Medical School Heart Letter -- August 2020). Do keep sharing your experiences and "stories" and what you read or hear via the media. Our biggest health risk right now seems to be Covid-19, but heart disease never goes away and the older we get, the more risk we have of cancer and kidney failure and dementia. To see the entire issue of the mentioned newletter, you can find it at www.health.harvard.edu.

Dogs share our lives more completely than does any other animal. Since their domestication, dogs have accompanied and served us in many ways. Two apex predators managed to find mutual benefit in a close relationship that is considered "commensal" -- dogs developed an intense, familial bond with humans.

Everyone is using the presidential office for their "agenda" sadly. I think a lot of people run just for the publicity without intent to ever win.


My oldest GD was a normally developing child till her second set of vaccines. She became very ill and then started displaying symptoms of autism. She lost her language. About the time she got it back the third round of vaccines happened and she lost her language again. I am not just a crackpot gma. I have a masters degree in Special Ed and at the time one of my jobs was to evaluate children and determine their eligibility for spec ed. I do think the vaccines poisoned her. The problem is that children mature at different rates, but everyone vaccinates on the same schedule. They also do all the vaccines at once. Owners of race horses do not vaccinate their horses that way. They break up the vaccines and administer them over time. I think our children are deserving of the same consideration. So my non-verbal three yo gd was evaluated by my co-workers during our best years. She received an exemplary education from them in Early Childhood classes and then she had an equally fabulous program in elementary school. By 5th grade she was off her IEP. Most people are clueless of the struggles she went through. She is pretty amazing. She will have a double major when she graduates from university this winter.

I am not anti-vaccine, just anti how and when it is administered.

Speaking of ADHD. We also had a lot of ADHD children qualify for our program too. First I tried to make sure the parents fed, watered, exercised and kept regular sleep hours in a darkened room. I cured several children because the parents listened to me and quit feeding the kids hot dogs and bologna. Nothing like a few nitrates and nitrites to amp up activity. Those that were healthy and hyper, usually had hyper parents too. I had a grandmother who was raising her grandson and was so frustrated with her four year old grandson. There was really nothing wrong with him, other than he was pretty active, impulsive and tended to tune her out. He really needed physical touch and to stay in motion while learning. The woman raised three different breeds of dogs to show. She had a beautiful farm and did amazing things with the animals. After months of her not getting what I was trying to tell her. I finally said. "Kids are like dogs. They come in all shapes, sizes, personalities and energy levels. Your grandson is a Jack Russell terrier." Now that was risky as some people are so easily offended, but I saw her eyes light up. She knew how to train Jack Russels. Completely changed their relationship and how she saw and valued him. She finally got it that he was a smart, energetic boy that needed a lot things to do to burn off that energy. It was fun watching them grow. Most the parents I worked with I told them the 1000 year theory. One Thousand years ago, the ADHD kids were the warriors, hunters, protectors and leaders. They were the strongest and smartest, because they had more energy and were tactile learners that thrived on trial and error. I truly do not believe ADHD is a disability. It is our society that puts them in a box in front of a TV or iPad and feeds them food with empty calories and lets them stay up all night. So stepping off my soap box. These issues are the ones that are important to me.

Morning Group -- Good that we can share some positive events in this gloomy world. Woke up to news that there had been another shooting in Charleston. Seems like people don't like to be told to wear masks. We wear our masks and gloves whenever we go anywhere. May have told you that we also add an "overshirt" when we are in a building such as the grocery store. You never know what you may pick up on your clothing. As soon as we get to our car, the shirt is removed and the gloves/mask. Then we use hand sanitizer and wipes. Can't be too careful -- our state is one of the "highest numbers" listed each day. Getting lots of storms lately -- makes for high mold counts since we are also up to about 95% humidity daily. Cathy, the person whom I told you about (SIL) who kayaks/bikes/hikes/camps lives on Whidbey Island. She and her "spouse" just got back from a trip with another couple. She seems to have gotten "better genes" than her brother. She did have an allergic reaction to something on her trip. She doesn't believe in "modern medicine", however -- uses herbs and such. Some Benadryl would have helped her -- her throat almost closed up from something she ate or inhaled. I have a sister who lives in S. Oregon -- her grandchildren have never had any immunizations because their "church" says that they "cause" ADHD. The kids are 2 years old and 4 years old -- they are "sick" all the time. Really worry about them and they are a problem to others since they can transmit everything. My sister spends a fortune on various "potions". We have great neighbors who are very helpful if anyone needs anything -- so many of us are about the same age, however, and we can't "haul" things or get on roofs too much anymore. We do share ideas about staying healthy! Take care/stay positive...

Farmer Brown is a pretty cool person. Paying it forward does feel good.

My son ran relays in track too. He didn't try for a sports scholarship, but one of my step grandson's did. He got to fly all over the countryside for the races.

Bud is barking for a walk. He has been pretty listless today, so that makes me happy.


PS: The emergency dentist pulled my tooth Friday. Said it wasn't salvagable.

Cathy. the care givers loved it, We didn't have medical training and couldn't do anything medical BUT we could sit with the person, read to them, play games, things like that and the care giver could go do what ever they wanted to get dome me time. My husband was on another part of the team, Every week they told him who needed their yard mowed. Most of the time he never saw anyone and had no idea whose yard he was mowing, When we lived in

Then we moved and we lived about a mile from the Church of the greater deeds, They believed to get tp heaven, besides belief you had to help the elderly and handy capped, My husband was in his 70's and has CP. It was pretty normal for us to come home and find our front yard mowed. If we asked who we needed to thank We were always told Farmer Brown.

Morning Group! Another "muggy" day. Did get to see our grand-daughter for her 13th birthday. We got some Olive Garden restaurant "take out". Tomorrow I will see if she wants to spend some time at our place while my spouse has his chemotherapy treatment. Cathy -- so glad to hear that you did that treatment. My neighbor went to the eye institute at the medical college in Charleston. They can't fix her "torn retina", so she is going to see a different eye doctor who may be able to restore some of her vision. Our Florida kids went to Conn. to see the DIL's relatives and they stopped to see some colleges along the way for our grandson who is going into his senior year of high school. He is trying to get a track/running scholarship. His high school team was the best in the country last year for relays. He trains all the time with his friends. Take care/keep sharing/stay informed about the virus...

Bellingham and she made her own kayak. Amazing woman with some wonderful water to play in. She probably even gets to see whales on her outings.

The epidural was as easy as getting a tooth drilled and actually had some similarities with the lidocaine shot. I feel dizzy, nauseated and I can't sleep. BUT....I got out of bed this morning without whimpering. It is so wonderful. Now to get my tooth fixed. It used to just be an annoying buzz, but now I can feel it and perseverate on it instead of my back. LOL. As I put in the blog, it is like the first day of spring after a long winter.

Taking care of other people and the worry for those loved ones truly is hard on our health. Sending you hugs.

Hello group! One week almost done for July. We didn't do anything for the 4th -- my spouse wanted to cook a couple of steaks on the grill, but the propane tank wouldn't work. He did the steaks last night, which were good. Our neighbors did some fireworks. We just ignored them. I have never been a fan of noise and my times of viewing big displays are past. Could have watched some on television, but wasn't really in the mood. Love the pictures of the kayaking, Cathy. Thanks for sharing. I am not a water person, either, but my sister-in-law who lives near Bellingham, Washington is a kayaker and just built herself a new one. She and her spouse go lots of places around their state and Oregon to meet up with various groups. She is a year younger than I am and in much better shape. Did take our dog and the neighbor's dog for a walk today before it got too warm. Tomorrow my husband finds out the results of his latest CT Scan. Since I want to see our grand-daughter for her birthday later this week, I won't go to the cancer center with him. I will let him tell me the results when I pick him up from the chemotherapy session. Our state has a huge increase in numbers of cases of the virus. The beaches are open and also "bars", so that may be part of the problem. Our Florida kids went to Conn. to see family (the DIL is from there). They rented a vehicle with California license plates and now they hope they won't have to quarantine. They are looking for a college for our grandson to attend via a track scholarship. We hope they aren't doing anything dangerous (staying in motels, getting "fast food", seeing people of all ages). Ordered more gloves and masks for our use so we can go grocery shopping and go to the hardware store. Temps here have been in the low 90s -- more tropical storms building up and we may get 2-4 inches of rain in the next few days. Stay safe/try to find some summer fun...

Both pictures were posted to the bottom of the thread. Crazy stuff. I complained once, but the coaches weren't very helpful. Seems to think it is a problem with my computer. However, if you would like to see them upright go to my Spark Page. I put them in the gallery and could rotate them there.

Spark People does not make it easy to attach pictures and they turn them sideways. Not as user friendly as FB, but frankly the people and the way they do the ads is so much nicer.

Had to go off all blood thinning stuff in preparation for injection on Tuesday. Thankful I go the TENS unit, but I really wanted some ibuprofen last night. Ugghhh.

I am going to try to pop up a couple kayaking pictures here.

I don't know where people get their cute pictures and such and don't know how to copy them when I do. I think I have a Facebook account. I did, played with it for a few months, then a friend was asking everyone to stay off for a month so they could see how much more time they had. I never had been big in Facebook, but at the end of the month I said I didn't miss it, I must not need it. That was 5 years ago.

Hello Group -- As you can tell, I am not much of a "techie". Have no idea how to find pictures or fun quotes or anything like that. I do Facebook, too, but mainly just post things other people have put on the site. Hope it has been a good day for you -- still lots of unrest in our part of the country. We have a high rate of drug problems and mental illness and now those conditions are spreading worse than the virus. Two women killed this week and one two year old girl. It takes a long time to find out "why" and "who did the killing". Thought you might like some titles of books for your summer reading. These can be purchased from Tufts Books, P.O. Box 8547, Big Sandy, Texas 75755 or probably from amazon.com. They are recommended by Tufts Veterinary group. "Decoding Your Dog" by Debra Horwitz and John Ciribassi, DVMs. This is a behavior book that helps you understand why certain bad habits develop. "Play With Your Dog" by Pat Miller. This book gives ideas regarding the benefits of play between you and your dog and other animals. The games have been collected from trainers around the country. "101 Dog Tricks" by Kyra Sundance and dog Chalcy. This is a "how-to" book to train your dog on activities that will engage and challenge your canine. Will list more next time. Have a great week, try to stay safe and well...

Dogs share our lives more completely than does any other animal. Since their domestication, dogs have accompanied and served us in many ways. Two apex predators managed to find mutual benefit in a close relationship that is considered "commensal" -- dogs developed an intense, familial bond with humans.
