I read an article recently about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how six million children have been diagnosed with this condition and one million of those six million have also been classified as having Sluggish Cognitive Tempo or SCT (two million children).They report lethargy, day dreaming, and slow mental processing.

If you were to ask folks what they are thankful for, you would undoubtedly get a variety of answers depending on different vantage points: stages of life, personal circumstances, location, career, affiliations, world-happenings, the economy, and...well, you get the picture.; often it is circumstantial.

...Yep, I think I'm more "bottom-brained"...huh?

I read an article recently that indicated left and right brained is so yesterday...all the rage now is "top-brain" and "bottom-brain". The theory now centers around a more anatomical division between the top and bottom halves of the noggin'.

The top portion is composed of the parietal lobe and top of the frontal lobe which apparently uses more information about our environment and emotional reactions to formulate plans and generate expectations.

...Nope, it's not a typo. Miriam-Webster definition: "to paint (the face) with cosmetics".
I was driving to work the other day and saw a gal putting on her makeup while driving (not even at the stop light...she was going about 40 miles an hour while attempting to do). I think there should be a law on the books against that! (hehe). As my mother used to say..."you could poke your eye out with one of those things" (mascara wand)!

...Remember the sitcom Home Improvement? I often refer to my husband as "Tim, the Toolman Taylor"...he loves to construct things and usually likes to create them to the extreme. He also takes pride in doing it himself versus buying something or paying someone to do it.

Community Heroes is what it's about.

Fresno Heart and Surgical Hospital (FHSH) is hosting a pilot for a Community Medical Center's Foundation program that will allow grateful patients to recognize staff and physicians for awesome care received and provided day in and day out. The patient is given an opportunity to make a donation, name an individual(s), and that person(s) can be formally recognized as a Community Hero, and ultimately have a very special lapel pin awarded to them to proudly display that symbolizes the heart of caring.
