National Alzheimer's Awareness Month

The latest news regarding the autopsy of the late comic Robin WIlliams shows that he was most likely experiencing symptoms of dementia.  Add that to the list of Parkinson's disease and depression and it makes it easier to understand why he would be driven to suicide. 

November is National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month and National Caregiver Month. In the United States, there are more than 15 million Alzheimer's and dementia caregivers.

Free Breakfast and then some

Today is Veterans Day and the day we like to set aside to say thanks for all that veterans do.  Hopefully you will start the day with free breakfast abourd the LST 325 with the WIKY Morning Show and Browning Funeral Home.  This has been a tradition for the past decade and all veterans and their families are invited.

3 things I learned at the beach

Fresh back from a beach vacation and I think I may have learned a couple things.   

1)  It's possible to wear so much sunscreen that you can  come back several shades lighter than when you left.

Fair Time!

The weather is fair right now and it's also fair season! 

Normally we would be drenched in mid-July perspiration, which makes this unseasonably pleasant weather a nice addition to the Warrick County 4-H Fair.  Of course you can expect the regular fair fare.  Everything from mud volleyball to hog wrestling, fried green tomatoes to fudge, ride, people watching, and lots of livestock watching too!  The Warrick Fair continues through July 19th. 

Then get ready for warmer temps and the <A

I have Spirit...how about you?

This Saturday, June 28th is the annual Spirit Fest to raise funds for the Spirit Medical Fund.

I was lucky enough to meet this spirited gal named Spirit at last year's event.  She is getting older and is lucky to have a wonderful person that adopted her to see her into her golden years.  Although without help from the community she would have never had that chance.  Here is an adorable picture of Spirit that the Co

Walk your way to a healthier you...

Last Saturday over 120 walkers along with their strollers and dogs showed up for the first WIKY Deaconess Healthier You Walk of the season at Wesselman Park.  It's been a long, cruel winter and i think everyone was happy to get back to it.  I'm always happy to see the familiar faces and the new ones as well.

Gettin' a Little Salty...

My Aunt Ida is a a retired nurse and she is always on the lookout for ways to improve health. 

Here is an article that she sent me regarding salt and since we still have a few days left for "Heart Month", I thought it was a good read.

Who knew we were getting more salt from bread than chips?  Apparently the CDC did.
