For Judy and anyone headed to the Delray, Florida area: The Boys (and the Girls, too) are located on Military Trail in Delray. The Boys are at …
14378 South Military Trail
Delray Beach, FL 33484-2626
They are a very large market-like a Penn Dutch, but probably better quality. It gets very crowded. People flock from everywhere. Park far away from the front door if you go because the parking lot is a madhouse!
The Girls, just a few blocks south, also on Military, is their “sister store” that has a u-pick farm behind it. I loved that place. Lots of animals to see and just a really cute place! If you make the trip up, they are both worth visiting.
Lisa…thanks, for sharing that list of cholesterol lowering foods. For anyone (isn’t most everyone?) interested in lowering your own cholesterol with foods-I just tried to get back to the list, to copy and paste here, but it’s not opening today! Suffice to say, lots of high fiber foods (vegetables, fruits and grains) are the way to pull cholesterol out of those arteries. Think what WOULDN’T Dr. Atkins eat if he were still alive, and eat those foods! Thankfully, the new Atkins diet has been revised to include the fiber-filled foods.
High cholesterol puts one at risk for a stroke. Thanks to Debbie, for sending the info on the 4 things to look for if you think someone is having a stroke. Worth repeating, here they are:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue.. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.
Thanks everyone for your questions and suggestions and simply for checking in. Rita and Carol, hope each day finds you on a constant upswing! Sylna, I, too am immediately attracted to anything DOG, and yes, this particular video had several important lessons about people, dogs and ANY living creatures. Thanks, Sylna, for this link on keeping the brain sharp.
I am elated that we can all share valuable information on this site and I am greatly appreciative for your thinking to forward things to me. Each and every day, I look forward to the comments, emails, questions, links and suggestions from ALL of you. Thanks, also, for passing along this site to others. As my good friend Lesley always says, and Mishell said last night at the dinner table, “sharing is caring.” A simple message for children, but equally as important for adults. Sharing IS caring. Thank you so much for caring.
