  • jpg_heart-ready-for-battle
  • Do you feel like you are ready to rock n’ roll?
  • Do you feel like walking around the mall? Just walk, not shopping.
  • If you went to the mall, did you have to walk 3 miles from where you parked?See the source image
  • After walking around the mall, doing some window shopping, were you hungry?
  • Whatever you are going today, make sure you take advantage of everything going on around you.

Hello National Teal Talk Day!

Hi Everyone!

What is National Teal Talk Day? Teal the color? A dark bluish green to greenish blue. Small babbling ducks?

National Teal Talk Day is about: Over 249,000 women are diagnosed annually with ovarian cancer, worldwide. Gather your friends, wear teal for a day out together and talk. 

Join a group of co-workers for lunch. Men are welcome, also. They have mothers, wives, daughters and sisters at risk for ovarian cancer. They should have the Teal Talk, too! There is no standard screening for ovarian cancer. In absence of a test, awareness is best. In the hour it might take to have the Teal Talk during lunch, approximately 28 women would have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 

Invite your closest friends, neighbors and sisters for drinks in the back yard. Wear your favorite teal and give the Teal Talk. Go for a walk with your mom and her friends. Even if it’s a short one it will be long enough for a Teal Talk. For more information go to – National Teal Talk Day Calendar site.

 HOW TO OBSERVE    Find out more information at Ovarcome.org and have the Teal Talk with the people in your lives.  Use #TealTalkDay to share on social media. It’s simple to get started. Ovarcome Founder Runsi Ayona Sen & Olympic Gym. Special note to bloggers out there – DON’T be afraid to talk to your love ones about this horrible disease. If you have to, take them by their hand and be there for them for tests, hospital, meeting with their doctors. Give them your support, it will make a world of difference. Have a great day! Hope

Hello “A LA Carte”!

Hi everyone! veggies
Have you ever wondered what “A La Carte” means?
It took me awhile of the true meaning before the light bulb went on for me.
It’s not the way a food is cooked.
It’s not the way a food is served.
It’s not a specific menu of special foods.
See the source imageSome people don’t realize until they get the bill and go WOW at the total.
It’s the way items are priced individually. It’s not only the food it is also the drinks you are having.
So if you think you are getting a deal because the price of each item looks cheaper, in the long run your total bill could be higher than if you ordered a complete meal. 
Depending on the restaurant “A La Carte” raspberrymay work out better for some if you don’t want certain foods that come with a complete meal. Now if you can substitute what you don’t want with something you prefer than stick with the complete meal.
The main think to me is to enjoy your food with family and friends.See the source image
Have a great day! twin boy girlHope
