Early this morning I was confronted by a man in a van asking for help, saying he was from another city and had lost his wallet and needed money. I was in the parking lot here at the radio station and I was still in my car, aware that he had follwed me into the lot. I had backed out when I saw him coming and was ready to get outta Dodge which thank GOD I was able to do and NOT have to take further action. I knew what to do and I did it...have your phone, a weapon and the knowledge to do what we know! If I had NOT been able to get away it may have turned out much differently. I am very thankful and so should he be!!!
I can't imagine what those 300 thousand or so folks near Charleston West Virginia are going thru again today. It's day 5 with NO tap water. You can't drink it, you can't bathe in it, brush your teeth with it, wash your hair, do anythig with it because of a toxic spill that got into the Elk River last Thursday. Many schools, restaurants and other businesses will be closed today because of the lack of clean tap water, but Gov. Earl Tomblin says all state offices will be open. This is just ANOTHER reason why you should be prepared!
Are you ready for what today holds when it comes to caring for your loved ones?
Makes you think doesn't it!
State health officials say they are doing all they can to help people QUIT smoking. they announced yesterday that uninsured smokers in South Carolina can get free nicotine replacement therapy from the Department of Health and Environmental Control. Tobacco use accounts for about 1 in 5 U.S. deaths claiming about 443 thousand every year. The American Cancer Society says that's more thatn alcohol, AIDS, car accidents, suicide, homicide and illegal drugs combined. They say South Carolina ranks 15th nationally in lung cancer mortality.
Yep, I got my flu shot. Now, I'm getting a lot of grief! Some of my co-workers and friends are giving me a hard time about it. I was sick with the noro virus over the holidays and went to the doctor's office at which time I went ahead and got my flu vaccine. I actually MEANT to get it soonwer, but didn't. Listen do what you wish but I don't wanna take a change on the H1N1 this year. A lot of you have your own reasons as to why you don't wanna get yours, do what you think is right for you and yours...and so did I.
I am so thankful for those of you who work each and every day to help those in need. Those who are homeless, hungry, and in need f of a hand! You do God's work and more of us need to join you In talking about the recent frigid cold that had enveloped the upstate and MOST of the US I just can't believe that with all the help, all the shelters, churches, etc, there is any reasn why anyone would CHOOSE to stay out in the cold rather than go in and some of you have told me it's because they have problems tructing others to help them. Some of them suffer from mental illnesses, drug and or alcohol abuse, and the like. So what can we do for them? PRAY! Pray and act! Offer to work at shelters, offer to drive a church van to pick up in areas where they gather, and do what you can to help. It may save a life...and will most assuredly, will better yours a well.
I am cold! I complained the heat was not warm enough in our home and we needed better isulation and a check of the heat pump. I got in the car and it took forever to warm up. I got to work and was cold in my office and then when I stopped complaining long enough to think..and I think I am spoiled!
I am blessed beyond belief and certainly much more than I deserve! I have a home, I have heat, I have a car, and I have a job! I am a brat! An old ungrateful brat who didn't take time to be thankful before thinking about little inconveniences. Thank you God! Now, let's do something that REALLY matters...let's help those who are not nearly as fortunate as we. I am gonna be busy today!
