It's April Fool's Day and my friends think I should ride a bike

Today is April 1st. You know what that means?'s the start of another Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month. To celebrate, I'll be doing a series on PD which will consist of two pieces a day, every day for the entire month.


Oh's that day. too.

But back to this bike thing....people like to send me stories about Parkinson's. I really do appreciate it. It keeps me informed and I'll give you credit if I end up using it here. A few weeks ago my friends Karen, Polly & Marcy all sent me the same video. this case I'm mentioning their names not to give them credit, but to see if they actually read my blog and if they're paying attention!! HA!!

If you watched the above video (click on the YouTube link in the video and it comes right up) you have to be thinking how cool is that? Yeah, me too. It's amazing how the brain and body works. You can see this with other forms of exercise and it's one of the reasons that a vigorous exercise program is recommended for Parkinson's patients.

So Summer is right around the corner. It could be fun to cruise around the Lakefront bicycle lanes. I'm heading out to look for a bike.

April Fools?

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
