This funny from Deewayne Honnee Pberger:
Interview  with 101 year-old Hattie Mae MacDonald of Feague,  Kentucky: 

Reporter:  Can you give us some  health tips for reaching the age of 101?
Hattie:   For better digestion I drink beer.  In the case of appetite loss  I drink white wine.  For low blood pressure I drink Red  Wine.  In the case of high blood pressure I drink scotch.   And when I have a cold I drink Schnapps.
Reporter:  When do you drink water?
Hattie:   I've never been that sick
Yesterday Nancy and I went to Tap Rock for lunch. Jennifer met us there. It was great. (Playing with my new iPhone!)

Jennifer had the crab (fresh) salad that she loved. Nancy had a salad she loved. (Gobbled it down Nancy!)  I had the flatbread pizza with chicken that I loved! So good and crispy. Yummmm...

After lunch Nancy and I stopped at Brian's office. He had a couple of drawings that Sami did for me. HOW SWEET!!!

Ditch New Year's Resolutions Day

If there's a day to celebrate New Years and to make resolutions for the upcoming year, then there should be a day to ditch those resolutions. That's the reason for today.
If you haven't broken or given up all of those New Year's resolutions, you're doing better than most of us. Maybe, you're well along the way to accomplishing them. Maybe, a few are already checked off on your list. Good for you!
For many of us, New Years resolutions are hanging heavily over our heads. They have become a burden, and perhaps were not such a good idea after all.
Then...... of course, there's the Nee Years resolutions that have already been broken.
 If you haven't accomplished, broken, or given up your New Year's resolutions, today is your chance to get out from under them.
