HBD to the great 'Peanuts' creator, CMS 'Sparky'!

http://goo.gl/519uwE
The only dog we owned during our family lifetime of raising our two daughters, Suzanne and Andrea, was our beagle, Tippy, our family pet for about 12 years.  Guess what?  We purchased Tippy in a pet store in Santa Rosa, a northern California community noted as the hometown of Charles Schulz, the created of Snoopy and the Peanuts cartoons.

Charles Monroe Schulz, nicknamed Sparky, was an American cartoonist, best known for the comic strip Peanuts. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time, cited as a major influence by many later cartoonists.

Debunking myths: Aging & Illness

http://goo.gl/m8Nh4P
My friends, neighbors, and family know that I am walking around with the stem cells of a Twenty-Something donor.  That is, since August 2007, I am the grateful steward of life-saving stem cells from an unrelated German donor who, without knowing me, simply walked into a German medical center to sign up as a donor in the international BMT (bone marrow transplant) program that eventually delivered his stem cells to help cure my mantle cell lymphoma, or at least sustain my life and health for the last seven years.

And while my blood type and blood DNA changed to match that of my donor, all other physical characteristics, including my age, now 66 (59 at the transplant), and the aging process did not reverse or slow down due to the transplant.  So, I offer this 'social current see' for boomers like me who are constantly searching for the Fountain of Youth.  A stem cell transplant may not be the answer, but check out what this source has to say:

Medicare Open enrollment starts Oct. 15

"Medicare beneficiaries who want to change their prescription drug plan or Medicare Advantage coverage for 2015 can do so starting Oct. 15, during the Medicare program’s annual open enrollment period. There will be somewhat fewer plans to pick from this year, but in general people will have plenty of options, experts say. ~ Michelle Andrews : Washington Post

Confessions of a peripatetic phlegmatic

Most often used to describe a person having an unemotional and stolidly calm disposition. Also known as calm, cool, l composed, 'calm cool and collected', controlled, serene, tranquil, placid, impassive, imperturbable, unruffled, dispassionate, philosophical stolid, dull, bland, unemotional, lifeless, unflappable.

According to this source, St. Peter was a lovable sanguine. At the Transfiguration he enthusiastically offers, “Let us set up three tents!” Even though, as Scripture also notes, “he did not know what he was saying” (Luke 9:33). He impetuously jumps out of the boat to walk on the water, but then looks down at the water and, afraid, begins to sink. He falls asleep in the Garden of Olives and then impulsively cuts off the Roman’s ear. Peter tells Christ that he will never let him suffer and die; Jesus says, “Get behind me, Satan.” (Mark 8:27-33) Just before the Passion, Peter stoutly promises, “I will never betray you, Lord!” A few short hours later, when questioned, he denies knowing Jesus.
