This month the five favorite things that are part of our May happenings at 6 Degrees are exciting and interconnected! They are:
Memorial Day: Memorial Day is a time of reflection and was and is a day of remembrance for those who sacrificed their lives for our country. As a way of remembering my own family’s war service, in particular that of my own Father who served in World War II, I published “Remember the Alamo with each war” on Medium.com. Check it out if you have a chance
Mother’s Day; Mother’s Day was an exciting time this year as we were also celebrating the re-opening of many local events and our usual laid-back Florida holiday activities. This year we celebrated with a visit to the beach! Here’s a picture of the beautiful Sunset along with my 95-year old mother enjoying the view! Also on Mother’s Day, Congratulations to my niece, who just had her third child, baby Bennett! It’s hard to believe the little girl I babysat and cared for as a toddler now has three kids! Life goes on…
Simone Biles & the Upcoming Olympics: There is excitement building for the Olympics in Tokyo. It looks like they will actually happen, although there will not be full stands of spectators at this Pandemic era Olympics….If you have a chance, watch America’s own Gymnastics Queen Simone Biles as she vaults to a perfect landing on video ….a shoo-in for Olympic Gold!
Personally Speaking; (And professionally speaking too) The upcoming E-Book, Diet for Life with the 6 Degrees Connection from Brown Bag Organics is almost finished! You can pre-register soon and also check out more products and ideas in our monthly Brown bag Tip Sheet. The E-book is about more than just dieting. The hard part is maintenance and the notion that we are all dieting for life.
5. Something Funny: The Macabre and almost forgotten comedy style of John Astin as Gomez Addams is one of my favorite things this month. For those who appreciate the unique and unusual, you can agree that the original idea of the Charles Addams’ comics were faithfully executed in the “Addams Family” sitcom from the sixties now being shown on cable.
Until next time, hope everyone has had a great start to their summer as we are entering our ‘post-Covid’ world!-6 Degrees Writer/ML
