Aging Gracefully and Website Building is not in my DNA

Why this photo, you may ask? It is clip art of the cross sections of many trees. Slicing the tree this way and counting its rings is one way foresters and botanists use to determine the age of each tree.

I chose it today, because I was born before the computer came into its own and feel like an old-timer in many respects. Today, I am reflecting about the rings that circle my core. There is a ring I earned as I learned to navigate around the Internet. Several others appeared as I shifted gears three times to keep up with my word processing programs. My first computer came with Lotus, but I moved on to Word Perfect, and now use Word. I've gained computer skills, since I started blogging in 2009, and am excited I've learned lots of things about health, nutrition, the mind-body connection. food, travel, and a green lifestyle.

Labor Day, Yellow Daisy, and Freedom 2013

I'm grateful I live in America and have the freedom to express my views without fear of reprisal.

I do not believe we should strike Syria now. I think we should wait for the UN report and other countries to band together before any U.S. military action commences. The congress and President need to get clear on what is and is not our responsibility. I don't want another Iraq, where there was action before we discovered the lack of hard facts about weapons of mass destruction. Also, I am disappointed President Obama did not offer Syrian Leaders a chance to repent and surrender chemical weapons as a last ditch effort to change the tide of events in Syria.

Thanks for Visiting

Hope you enjoyed your visit and will return again. Be well. Live well. Lead a colorful life! Warm regards, Nan
