This week is starting out busy. Do I have some treats for you today. Let's get started.
First, meet Author Tim J. Myers and his latest children's book
RUDE DUDE'S BOOK OF FOOD
It's amazing! Ancient Mongols actually did put raw meat under their saddles to "tenderize" it! And fortune cookies--gasp--don't come from China! Tim J. Myers' Rude Dude's Book of Food is just out, a humorous, anecdote-filled history of popular foods (hamburgers, chocolate, etc.) tied to the Common Core and intended for upper-elementary/ middle-school students. You know you're hungry--dig in!
From Rude Dude's Book of Food:
I didn't know that. Did you?
Watch those hamburgers, people.
Next we have the SURVIVE AND THRIVE BLOG HOP
Monday, October 20, 2014
The blogfest is meant to bring awareness of disease prevention and early detection regarding medical conditions that may be averted or treated if caught in the early stages. Our desire is to motivate people to go in for early screening, and if a condition is caught early and treated, then our world just became a little better place to live.
I have a particular cause that is dear to my heart, well, actually more than one, I'd like to share with you. Diabetes, Alzheimer's, kidney failure, and heart disease. I know, I told you.
Diabetes: Diabetes leads to other problems, so please, please keep track of your blood sugar count, eat healthy meals, take your medication if prescribed, and exercise.
Alzheimer's: This disease robs you of your mind. There's very little worse than someone you've known for years looking at you as though you're stranger. Many factors play into the disease: age, genetics, environment, lifestyle.. Some risk factors can be changed.
Kidney failure: Manage your diabetes and blood pressure.
Heart Disease: There are many causes. Again, eat healthy, exercise, don't smoke.
Early diagnosis is important, so keep those doctor appointments.
One more important matter today. Stop by Darby Karchut's blog where she's spotlighting STAR OF THE TEAM. We love comments.
