Desert Southwest Chapter | Alzheimer’s Association and Getting Involved

http://www.alz.org/dsw/

I am going to start becoming involved with the desert southwest chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. When my grandmother (my mother’s mother) Ruby Hart had Alzheimer’s disease, I was one of her caregivers, along with my sister in law, as hers was very severe. So I walked about a mile to get there from my house in Orange at the time.  I read everything to read on the topic, while I was organizing papers and doing whatever the director wanted me to do. I remember her putting a small stereo in the room with me while I made informative packages available for mailings.
I know they would tune me into support groups as the child of some one-year mother Ramona as in Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily; who has severe Alzheimer’s disease.

It runs in women as in grandma , then Mom the next to be in line with be my sister Brenda and then after that would be me . That’s who would be most susceptible to the disorder-and I really don’t want it, so I am trying to stay active, eat plenty if green antioxidant filled foods, extra virgin olive oil has been proven to not only deter the onset of dementia but also people who already were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease responded favorably to it.

There are so many different things a person can do to help avoid it, but there are no guarantees.

It would be helpful for me to meet another lady whose mother has acute Alzheimer’s disease. I could use a soup mate to get through this tragic thing.
It would do me good, as the former caretaker. My siater is her catetaker now who was so verbally abusive to me judging what I did. Now she knows it wasn’t as easy as she thought. Perhaps, if miracles exist, I will get a genuine apology for her and her husband throwing me on the street too, after I helped pay the house payment 15 years, if I don’t- that’s alright. She has to live with what she did. I don’t.

I was there for her 24/7 for 15 years and it’s my time now. To watch someone die isn’t an easy thing to do and I might decide that I want to remember her as she was. That’s ok.

A caregiver shouldn’t be a caregiver any longer when you no longer have 24/7 patience, which people with short term memory problems require.

At any rate, I will be a spokesperson for the rest of my life trying to raise money for to find the cure.

I hope to show the director my newsletter Ramona’too. My goal is to make it available to all the caregivers in their data base.

43 Dead Across 7 States After Week of Devastating Tornadoes, Flooding and Storms – ABC News

I get up every morning and watch the sunrise and can see the midnight blue sky turn a lighter blue gradually. And I can see the palm trees solouette in the early morning sky and gradually the sun’s rays start peering through early morning sky. Occasionally I am blessed with a glorious sunrise in the “birth of my new day”.

Some times I just relish the quiet and pleasant still and peace as I sip my cup of French press coffee and other days classical or new age music will air through my bluetooth speaker the size of only a brick, but it the music is loud enough for me and is not obtrusive to my neighbors.

As I open the many websites that I’m on from Twitter especially where people are adding me to really extraordinary list as a leaders-which was unexpected but nice, or on photographer lists and others. They don’t ever think like that, but it doesn’t matter. I know better and I try to make decisions that affect the greater good of all.

I’m not trying to impress the whole world. Anybody that does that never accomplished anything. They are always worried about what others think of them and are not true to themselves. Please yourself because if you do that and you compete with yourself you’re doing very well in life. In many cases you don’t want a copy everybody because what if everybody is doing the wrong thing? Right? It’s good to think about what you do and evaluate what the best decision for you to make it given situations are. In order to do that you gotta go into a quiet place where you can think.

This can be a beautiful place and in my case, a natural place where there is a beautiful view, plants and flowers around. If I still lived in southern California, there were a plethora of places like the multitude of beaches studding Pacific Coast Highway. Here in Las Vegas, nature is a rarity. A congested, dusty hot desert is what it is with lower housing prices, which is what I have.

Once you find that special place where you can relax and just go… let it be your sanctuary. The world doesnt have to know every little thing you do, like a play by play on Facebook. Some people let the world know everything they do, every where they go, including tracking themselves by “checking in”….what is left then? What is private? What is sacred if the whole world knows about everything you do? Its not even the safe thing to do to tell everybody where you’re going in this day and age , but nobody ever thinks about that .

If you post on Facebook or Twitter where your sanctuary is, it no longer is any more. If you haven’t found a sanctuary yet, or thought about it, look on apps like Scout to help you, and FourSquare can turn up some incredible finds.
I love places that have trees and birds and pretty things that you can here nature sounds which I love – whether it be a bird chirping or an ocean wave crashing seagulls etc.

Now back to the title of this story.

What is happening to the world? Is this global warming in action? It worries me. I’m going to talk to some news reporters and people from papers in Las Vegas and ask them what they think is going on. I’m going to talk to a meteorologist and find out what they think is the matter. I’ve never seen so many places hit with ghastly weather- including here with 25 mile an hour winds to even 40 mile an hour winds. In Albuquerque, New Mexico my friend had a blizzard a few days ago while we had horrible winds. People died in Dallas, Texas this week- I think it was 11 people there alone. I know its winter, but I have never heard of a winter like this.

All over the world some of the most horrid weather I’ve been reading about on the news in a very short time causing tragedies and deaths.

I’m one of these people who put two and two together and I look at the situation after I get enough information and I say- “what the heck was going on?” It’s a good thing to do and a good way to be

Don’t just live day today but look at the big picture.

I hope that all of our pollution and all of our irresponsible ways haven’t messed up our ecosystem to the point of nonreversal. Our home is planet Earth.
We only have one of them with a water system we rely on for LIFE. I know you want to wake up to your routine too doing what you do for a living.

Get involved in your community to conserve our natural resources. They are not unlimited but finite.

We need to start thinking in a responsible way doing things in a more sustainable way and thinking about the big picture and sincerely considering our environment -our only home, your children and grandchildren’s future home.
Think about gas emissions from your car, get that smog check for the sake of all of us! That junk coming out of your exhaust pipe doesn’t affect just you!

Buying a cars that gets better gas mileage and think of carpooling or getting some needed exercise and taking your local bus!
Positive things all add up.
Anything we can do that helps the environment.
Consider all of the strange that’s weather patterns going on all around the world. Read an article or two about global warming, pollution and do your part to not create it.

I want to get the opinions of a meteorologist here who works for one of the news stations and see what they say about all the tornadoes, high winds here, blizzards in places that have very fair weather most of the time . Congratulations to the four writers from ABC News who made it a team effort to write the original article that inspired me to write this.

Death Toll Rises in Dallas as Storms Sweep South – NYTimes.com

http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/12/28/us/dallas-tornadoes-storms-sweep-south.html?referer=

My prayers go out to all who have been affected in any way in Dallas, TX by the horrible tornadoes that went through there Saturday night.

11 people died due to the very tragic weather conditions.

It seems everyone is affected by some kind of storm or horrible winds, even where I live in Las Vegas, Nevada.  What is going on?

WordPress told me my disc space is full and I cannot upload any more photos until I upgrade to a higher plan

At 3 p.m. I get a notice with all of my follower’s comments and good remarks about the posts I write that I maxed our my disc space here and won’t be able to upload any more photos until I upgrade to a higher plan. ..let’s say $100 a year more.

Anyone hear of that before?

I have two book cases earmarked for the next check I am expecting-so my books finally have a proper resting place,  plus the usual expenses of survival-rent, utilities, Smartphone I am typing this on, and my paycheck is nearly gone…

So,  you might not see anything with a photo for awhile.

Unless somebody hires me for some decent paying jobs here.

Don’t move to Nevada. …cheap rent or not, independent contractors like myself have a hell of a time making a living. Then the higher crime rate, high transients and high drug addicts and addicts on general make it hell to find serious business minded people.

My mass went nicely last night, but walking in 25 mph winds was less than desirable. Fortunately I made it in my place before the rains came.

What I did paid 4 times as much in CA. But the housing is still way too expensive for me. ..and you’d never find a place like I have, for the price I am paying in southern CA.

I hope the coming year brings better job opportunities for me so I can afford everything I need,  let alone some things I want…like a long needed vacation. ..to see an ocean,  a bush, a tree, hear birds chirp instead of the cars and buses in an overcongested neon sign covered city.
This is as good as I can write tonight. I spent the day hearing my neighbor’s dog bark, the same dog that kept me up last night late, and called the manager to see about talking to the people who leave the poor dog in a pin all day every day.
All my friends worked that live in Las Vegas, the rest are in other states, and let’s say “festive ” wasn’t exactly in my vocabulary today.
That’s alright.
If I liked the way my day went something would be wrong with me.

I will buy myself a nice Christmas gift after I get paid and take myself to something other than Carl’s Jr!

If you’re celebrating on your own like I am and you have no tree, you know what I say to that-so what.

Here’s my Christmas tree….
It exists in my favorite Snoopy Christmas cup with the cute Woodstock spoon smiling inside. It was a gift to myself last year from Walgreens…the only one they had for only $5!.

Google was updating some photos from last year Christmas and found these I created….

The tree is just a symbol that people throw away. The true evergreen living breathing “tree” lies not in an inadament object but lies within the depths of your soul . The beauty and your soul exist everyday , not just on holidays but every day of the year.

LAST YEAR WHEN I HAD $40 TO MY NAME AND A MILLION MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO BUY WITH THE $40, I BOUGHT A CAKE WITH A PICTURE OF A RED FLOWER ON IT AND ATE IT!

AT LEAST I GOT SOME ENJOYMENT FROM IT AND FOR $5 AT THE BAKERY, I HAD SOMETHING TO SERVE WHAT FEW GUESTS I HAD COME OVER.

There is merriment and joy to be had in a million undiscovered places and in other things.

How can you celebrate Christmas?

Firstly you have to understand that the true meaning and Christmas isn’t about buying “stuff” and more stuff, but in giving and sharing love and kindness to people you know and don’t know.

Christmas is about finding somebody who is sad and making them not sad any longer.

Christmas is about looking for a person who looks like they have nothing to be happy for and you making them realize they do.

Spread some joy around like honey and butter on corn bread and watch how quickly some gets stuck on you!

Go seek out the people who people have forgotten.

This thing called Christmas Spirit can be carried out the rest of the 364 days of the year, if you only want it to be.

Share what you have with those who are near you and are special to you.

Christmas is about finding a common denominator that people never thought existed and proving were not so different after all.

Christmas is making people know we are alk the same, nomatter what color or faith we are. We can all be neighbors or brothers or sisters.

Christmas is praying together and people holding hands praying about world peace and simple every day things and simply being together.

It doesn’t matter who those people are. You can find family or BECOME FRAMILY- FRIEND WHO BECAME FAMILY- in every person that is around you at this very time.

Go make a friend today. Watch how easy it is. In the time you spent wallowing in pity you could go out make a few more friends instead.

I’m in Las Vegas, Nevada and as I look out the window its 7 in the morning with a rain storm on the horizon. It is supposed to be one of the biggest storms that Nevada had for a while. According to all the news reports Lake Tahoe starting to fill up and the it is starting to look more like a lake. It makes things harder for me, and I have to walk much slower, so I don’t slip, but I know this dry, dusty desert needs the rain!

So what, I don’t drive…I am ALIVE and breathing, but I’m never driving again because I choose to. It’s called being smart. I was in the very near fatal car accident about 20 years ago and was nearly killed. My husband at the time kept saying “get your independence” even though I had epilepsy. So like a moron, I went after my drivers license and one day had a seizure behind the wheel. I was unconscious behind the wheel and couldn’t pull over to the side of the street. The car ended up going into a chain link fence of the schoolyard. I was nearly killed everything I ever worked for almost came to an end. My books i am working on now and so much more. Thank God I am here today to tell this story. I have far more gifts God blessed me with than anything else. That day, I will always remember the 100’s of people lined up and down the street applauding when I finally moved and got out of the car….with the door about falling off and the license plate dangling. ..thank God she’s alive… I heard. I’m never doing this again, I said. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be to drive anyway but I will never ever forget all the people applauding I was alive. The next time I hear applause it will be for playing one of the songs I wrote on the piano, or for some other written creation…one of my gifts I like to bless others with.

I have almost died 5 times in my life and used to be in a wheelchair. I am a walking miracle, you could say.

You see, God had plans for me.
I wasn’t supposed to go then.
I was supposed to create this site, Totally Inspired Mind years later. It’s now read by one hundred countries monthly.

I was supposed to help my mother with Alzheimer’s disease, I was supposed to make a difference in people’s lives. I was supposed to give people hope in make him happy showing them they matter. I was supposed to write articles, like this one, an extension of my soul, that inspire.

I am supposed to do a lot of stuff-much I don’t even know yet.

I don’t drive but I get around. I don’t let silly things like that stop me. I’m okay with that. WITH DRIVING YOU GET A CAR PAYMENT AND INSURANCE TOO AND IT ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

The good thing about driving is you never ever look for the parking spot, and you never pay for parking and you never get lost looking for your car in a parking lot! There’s always a good side to everything.

Merry Christmas Eve!

8:16 a.m.

The Sun just came out…with big, bright rays of hope shining down from the heavens…. saying may not rain after all, which would be nice for me.

I’m not going to sit in my house all night looking at the wall..

I’m going out there but I’m going to go to church tonight to a extraordinary, wonderful, jubilant mass at the St James Roman Catholic Church. They’re having a Christmas Eve mass at 7 o’clock tonight. Even though there’s a storm…I’m going.

I’m going in the storm….THAT’S WHY THEY MAKE WATERPROOF JACKETS WITH HOODS!
When you’re in L 54 years old like I am, I move SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY but I move.

So, if you’re celebrating on your own like I am, I hope I changed your mind on what the meaning of Christmas is all about…and encouraged you to get out of your funk and go out.

And, IF you have no tree, you know what I say to that- so what.
A CHRISTMAS TREE is just a symbol. People throw it away a few days after they buy it. Good Will towards human kind lasts all year in your heart and soul.

Celebrate Christmas AND LET THE STAR BE IN THE SPARKLING SMILE YOU SHOW TO ALL THOSE YOU MEET. DON’T JUDGE OTHERS. BE KIND. SHARE WHAT YOU HAVE, NO MATTER HOW MEAGER AND WATCH IT MULTIPLY.

Your Christmas is about this about finding somebody SAD and giving them something TO SMILE ABOUT ABOUT. GIVE THEM SOME OF YOUR CHARISMATIC SMILE. GIVE JOY to people who people forgot.

It’s about the love that you share in the heart of all people. It about finding a common denominator and people that they never thought was a, denominator set people holding hands about praying about being together it doesn’t matter who the people are.

You can find family or become family by definition in nearly every person around you at this very time.

They don’t know I’m going make a friend what you make a friend you know I’m don’t you? I’m in Las Vegas Nevada and I was I look up the window at 7 in the morning the horizon. It might be one of the biggest storms Nevada has seen for a long while. According to all the news reports Lake Tahoe starting to fill.

So what, I don’t drive. I’m never drive again and I am 100 % fine with that. You see, I was very near fatal car accident about 20 years ago and early killed my ex husband at the time kept saying oh get your independence even know I had epilepsy and so I was having or is it like a moron I went after my drivers license well one day I hadn’t or and I couldn’t pull over the side of the street and the car and it up going into a chain link fence of the schoolyard dad was nearly killed the with every act every word and every day that you do everyday.

So what, that was a choice on my part. My place looks mighty festive without one.
I can’t picture spending all that money on a thing I am either storing in a closet or worse, throwing away! I would rather see more evergreen trees planted that nobody chops down. I’ve downsized most everything.

The real gifts of Christmas are in things that don’t come out of a box, that arent wrapped, and that are found by you finding places that you can go and make people feel better feel happier, feel special, and let them know they mean something.

Christmas is in letting others know they are important.
If you do that to one person you don’t, know you will do it on a regular basis-because when you share and make someone’s life different in a good way, you showed them you cared.

You just gave them a reason to live and you can change their attitude about themselves. When you have done that, you’ve done one of the greatest things on the face of God’s earth. From that day forward that person will look at themselves differently and you made that person’s life change, and that is extraordinary.

When you hand out joy and you can transform someone’s life just by showing you care one person can do that. What are some places that you can do that at? Senior homes, hospitals, foster homes, acute wards and cancer centers. You want to DO SOMETHING to feel good about? Go to one of those places and it will show you how lucky you are.

Just hang around the cancer ward for even a half hour and smile at the sweet innocent kids who have been told their days are numbered. Do something wonderful for those kids who can’t go outside because their immune systems wont let them. Those are places where you are needed.

When you realize how blessed you really are, no matter what you’re going through will pale by comparison and won’t be as bad as that.

I have some old Barbie dolls and my sister gave me when I was 9 and I have been trying to sell them on OfferUp.com forever and nobody wants them.

When I was saying my prayers one morning watching the sun rise…it came to me where those dolls are supposed to go..a foster care home or a children’s cancer center or some other very needed place. That would give me JOY beyond measure seeing the little girls faces light up. And, where else would those dolls be new all over again. 😉

The Wisdom of Charles H. Spurgeon

There are a number of books I read out of every day and this is one of them. I found it, I believe in the Salvation Army when I was with my mother some years ago. We used to go to an awesome one that dates back when I was 9 years old, thats over 30 years ago, and we used to go there. It was our haven because it was located in the historic district of old Garden Grove. That’s how my mom dressed me so I looked like I was rich but wasn’t. What people didn’t know didn’t hurt them.
We became masters of finding treasures in unexpected places. Which, by the way, is more exciting and challenging than going to big expensive department stores. Then when you find excellent quality for an incredible price it is rewarding and fun.
Anyone can plunk put a couple hundred dollars to buy their heart’s desire, but mom and I delighted in finding our treasures, which they were. Mom is a treasure any too and she taught me things like appreciation, thankfulness and compassion at a young age, that are with me still.

As for this book, it was one if a set of three I found for a few dollars.

If you can find Charles H. Spurgeon in your local library, on Google books, Librivox or in your local book store…he is worth buying and reading with your family.
His insights from passages in the bible are refreshing and he is a master of being eloquent with words.
You will look forward to reading each day and night and you will walk away with a refreshed attitude and a new, more positive way of thinking.

I hope this finds all who read this firming up your holiday plans for Christmas Eve and Christmas.  If you celebrate another way and are not Christian, I wish you peace and health and that’s wonderful.

What new discoveries are waiting for you outside your window?

What new places can you discover in your neighborhood?

Put on your smartphone and app called AroundMe or go to AroundMe.com….. it’s free yes, and that rhymes! You can search everything from restaurants to shopping to parks to all sorts of stuff. All you do is tell it what zip code you are at and of course with the GPS system communicating with satellites in the sky -it can pin point exactly where you are. Then it will search for everything of interest within a 5 mile radius, and beyond,  to you.

It will tell you everything within a close proximity to where you live. You can read about the places you want to go  and then go there.

In life we only have a finite amount of time and we need to make sure we do the things we want to do, that we work towards all our goals every day.

If you’re not doing something awarding don’t do it. Only associate with people who are positive, empowering, who  encourage, who bring you up to celebrate your joys and they are there cheering you to victory when things maybe don’t work the way you want all those things combined add to your quality of your life.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from a variety of topics from the late but always great Carl Sagan.
The images were searched and discovered on Pinterest by me.

One of his famous lines ftom the extraordinary series “Cosmos”….
We are all star stuff”….

image

I read his bio some months ago and I couldn’t believe how many contributions to science Carl Sagan made in his life. He had a gift with words….and melded science with art.

The words of someone touched by God, even though he didn’t believe in God.
When talking about the earth…
“A mote of dusted suspended on s sunbeam.”

A Great Morning To The World. ..

image

image

I woke up at 5:30 this morning felt rested because I slept really well last night. I found a wonderful recipe on WordPress from one of my fellow bloggers Maya for blueberry scones made in the traditional English Way with heavy whipping cream and no eggs, made little sweeter than a biscuit and some wonderful fresh lemon peel in the dough, & a whole bunch of fresh, juicy blueberries.

Turns out, I had everything in my kitchen to make it, but it was really late at night when I found the recipe.

In England, unlike America, they use the metric system and weigh everything- but it is accurate.  I still want to make it, and got out the trusty Cuisinart scale and adapted it by substituting soy milk for the whipping cream and a little low fat Evaporated milk. They were really good and healthier and better for me.
I got down my English bone China teapot, the cup my sweet mama gave me that belonged to her mother Ruby Hart, and put a doily she crocheted on a shelf that extends out of my roll top desk, and enjoyed a nice reverie.
Sipping on some Lady Grey tea I enjoyed the sunrise.

What is your purpose?

Have you ever thought about what you are most passionate about in life?

If not, it is worth the self introspective process to find out.

It doesn’t matter that you don’t have a computer. It never stopped Albert Einstein or Helen Keller. They wrote with what they had- a paper and pen,  type writer….

Now with the age of smart phones,  phablet s, tablets, iPods and iPads, and  computers; the sky is the limit to the way you can put your thoughts on quote paper – Be it digital paper, real paper, or an ordinary pen and paper, that works as efficiently as it did when the first papers were used with a quilt pen and an inkwell.  You see, with your ideas you have the world at your fingertips!

The Fellowship – What is Hanukkah? History, Traditions, Prayers & Recipes

http://www.ifcj.org/site/PageNavigator/eng/inside/hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah to all the Jewish people on the world. Let Jews and Christians one day realize that religions are made by humans and above all, we are sentient, intelligent human beings deserving of being treated with respect and dignity.

We all had parents.  We all have loved and lost and grieved and we all desire to be understood.

I hope organizations like this can bridge the gap between Christians and the Jewish community, realizing we weren’t really different after all.

Nature… Is ever in her Spring, where the moss – grown and the decaying trees are not old, but seemed to enjoy a perpetual youth; and blissful, innocent Nature, like a serene infant, I’d so happy to make a noise. – Henry David Thoreau from Walden

I love how Thoreau capitalized the word “nature” as in giving it combining the word God and Nature in one.

I love this paragraph from Walden, which is why it remains one if my favorite books of all time.

The brilliant autumnal colors are red and yellow and the various tense, use, and shades of these. Who is reserved to be the color of the sky, but yellow and red are the colors of the earth flower. Every fruit, on ripening, and just before its fall, the choir is a great tint; so do the leaves, so the sky before the end of the day, and the year near its setting.
October is the red sunset sky, November the latter twilight. Color stands for alright miss and success… The very forest and herbage, the pellicle of the earth as it were, must acquire a bright color, and evidence of its rightness, is it the globe itself were a fruit on its stem, with ever one cheek toward the Sun.
