Gifting simple like Curley’s chicken soup recipe…

Keep holiday season gifting Curly-chicken-soup easy! Curly’s picture depicts easy comfort food preparation: collecting boiled water poured through a whole chicken. Voila, chicken soup! Take Curly’s hint: make life easier by keeping gift-giving simple, yet effective! 

Quote about the importance of seemingly little things
Little can be HUGE!

“A Jewish woman had two chickens. One got sick, so the woman made chicken soup out of the other one to help the sick one get well.”

Henny Youngman

Gift simple, uniquely home made items, ideas, time. Absolutely, uncork and wrap time’s bottled promises placing them around trees or in stockings. REALLY y’all, gift time-/simplicity. Gift thoughtfully, thoroughly every coming season going forward.

Ideas may not come easily; however, everyone has something that on the surface may seem small; however, it can snowball into something bigger over time.

Casey Abrams: Simple Life

“When you have a good stock, you can make a good soup.”

Martin Yan

Simple gifting ideas make good stock:  

  • Neighborly donations of lawn-mowing, snow-plowing skills;
  • Offer free babysitting, elder-sitting services;
  • Volunteer teaching nursing home residents basic computer/gaming skills;
  • Allow employees occasional late starts, early leaves;
  • Gift positivity, compliments, forgiveness.

Remember: Make Christmas/New Years all year gifting memorable, significant, simple unique presents. Hopefully, Curly-chicken-soup simple, yet stirring, gifted favors will ricochet in return!

“Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.”

Ludwig van Beethoven
The power in simple gifts
Small, yet effective!
Invest in people!
Strategic Investing…

Medicine Challenge:  Are One Sentence Questions & Answer… Possible?

Word!

This morning, I tasked myself with this question:

Can it be done?

Is it possible to establish a blog whereby participants ask one medical question and receive one answer within the space of one sentence? 

 

I’m uncertain; however, I’d like to try! You? 

Amen!

 

In keeping with brevity’s theme, my blog’s done!

*Now, it’s on you! 

Thanks in advance for your participation.

 

 

*Participants should seek more in depth answers to questions posed from their individual personal health care professionals.Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramflickrfoursquaremailFacebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramflickrfoursquaremailby feather

Smarter World, Dumber Us!

Smarter World, Dumber Us…

Beware!

Let’s catch up and surpass our greatest technological advancements acknowledging  breakthrough innovations are only as humane as their creators! However, with rapid growth and success in artificial intelligence, our creations might someday surpass us  in unimaginable ways like in,”West World!”  

Dumber Us…

Information, clouds?

… for not recognizing that collective differences make us smarter and stronger as nations!  Media streaming through various channels oxygenate indolent fires making them burn brighter. Information presented blurs fact/opinion lines speaking to differences more than similarities ultimately linking us together.  

 

Smarter World…

… growing smarter as each new generation leaps at the opportunity to surpass its predecessor in matters of ideas and innovations.

Dumber Us…

… misunderstanding human diversity seeded within us and its purpose to grow our differences into bountiful harvests;

… promoting one organ over another in a common body… Absurd! (We are intricate parts created to fit together for the good of the whole);

… allowing lead stories, political pundits and fictitious characters to liberate base desires surfacing our worst attributes! Who can blame them if promoting self-destruction appeals to audiences! Pander to our basest, most reactionary instincts: gossip, hatred, fear, insecurity, lust, murder… and we’ll come, sit, stay, feast, spread and cyclically return!

Word!

Even good-intentioned people, pious or otherwise, perpetuate this madness by mouth, email, text or action. Because… doesn’t matter!

 

Stop it and break the chains!

Plug it and grow smarter! Change channels, turn pages, leave cliques in an effort to become more than the virtual realities we so skillfully create!

We are capable of ending many evils dumbly diverting precious resources away from our collective good. It’s as if we feel oxygen exists always and in ample supply! Dumber us, will be down to last breaths soon!

Smarter World, Dumber Us…

…  catching up to this smarter world we created must advance to the top of  production lines as a work in progress!

Dumb for us not too try.

For Pete’s sake, even animals are weighing in!

For future’s sake, choose positive legacies that won’t handicap successors. It’s as if we are on the edge of a precipice watching humanity about to fall! Smarter to self-adjust now as nations… dumber to not! 

 

 

 

Don’t be blockheads!

Smarten up, world by turning differences into lemonade!

Telemedicine: Parenting Parents…

Telemedicine: Parenting Parents

Telemedicine

How does one ‘parent’ parents especially today when anything (dates, prayer cloths, holy water, in home services, orthotics, healthcare consultations and medications) can be ordered anytime via traditional and smart devices that our seniors have readily on hand? I wondered… myself feeling caught between a vise personally having senior parents of my own while professionally dealing with adult children of others calling to complain about durable goods and medications ordered through one of several telemedicine companies I’ve contracted my services to over the last year. You can say, Dr Bagley’s gotta brand new bag!

Brand New Bag!

Old Doctor’s Bag

Like many doctors, I’ve grown weary of traditional medical practices realizing it’s not feasible, nor affordable for all!

What we as adult children of seniors must keep foremost in or minds is that our parents have unlimited access to advertisements that they often take advantage of without our knowing. And, when challenged they are embarrassed conveniently forgetting fearing criticism, repercussions or truly, their recollections failed! 

If you say so…but I just baked them!

My own seventy-nine-year old mother has us on our toes constantly. And, I might mention her memory is intact! Now, imagine a parent whose faculties come and go armed with a credit and insurance card and a smart device?

2018… “Let’s Turn This Mutha Out!” 

As in the words of Parliament  (having nothing to do with Great Britain’s to those unfamiliar). In turning this mutha out, I simply mean: make 2018 the role model for subsequent years. Make 2018 better than all preceding ones. In other words, turn it out owning, controlling, setting every season to your own liking!

What’s so different about 2018, you might ask?

It presents you with a full tank for a new start offering an alternative pathway out of prior years’ disasters, indecisions, missteps, dramas, failures, doubts, dilemmas… 

TURN 2018 OUT!

Don’t look back! WHY?

FAITH

 

 

 

Lest your head gets stuck in the past like feet in quicksand! Besides, you remember ‘back’ well, don’t you? Is your faith strong enough to propel you forward, upward and onto higher heights this new year? 

This blog invites, challenges all to push past yesteryear fully embracing and nurturing 2018 as a “new-birth” year.

Parliament had it right… 2018: “LET’S TURN THIS MUTHA OUT

OWN 2018!

 Dare ya!Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramflickrfoursquaremailFacebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinrssyoutubevimeotumblrinstagramflickrfoursquaremailby feather
