A couple of weeks ago most of us weren’t familiar with the terms; social distancing and PPE. Now, those terms are in our daily vernacular. We don’t know what the future holds, but then we can’t foresee the future even when there’s not a virus threatening civilization. Most of us tend to worry about things that never come to fruition. For instance, perhaps last week someone was worried about a severe storm or a medical procedure, those events passed and the next day dawned to new challenges and gifts.
I’ve figured out that the best way to handle it is to laugh back. I’m referring to premature senility from which I must be entering. I’m surely not old enough for the real thing! But why else would I be having so many problems with the washing machine?

As a County Extension Agent, I have been teaching health and fitness classes for over fifteen years. Extension’s recommendations for everything from nutrition to financial management are based on the latest research and evidence of what works. Since 2008 when the first Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans was published, I taught participants to shoot for a minimum of 150 minutes a week of moderate intensity exercise for basic fitness. That comes out to 30 minutes a day on most days of the week. That was also my personal guideline. However, I found it difficult to keep up the 30 minutes on most days of the week habit. I gave myself excuses from weather to a runny nose to not having a good location to exercise. I tended not to exercise at all if I could not get the whole 30 minutes at one time.
Hello everyone! Looks like spring is here to stay! I guess the groundhog was right. All my plum, cherry, Bradford pears, daffodils, and tulip trees are in full bloom. It won’t be long until the grass will need mowing. Hopefully I will have my garden ready before Good Friday. I know it is prettier weather and everyone will want to burn the limbs and leaves. I will also be one of them. Please be careful and mindful not to burn too close to the roads. The smoke can make it hazardous for drivers.
