World Kindness Day

Happy World Kindness Day! While this game is designed for school children, it definitely may be adapted to individuals of all ages. Sharing love and kindness costs absolutely nothing but can make a world of difference to someone. Consider what you can personally do to make the world a better place and commit to doing it.

Anthony Bourdain

“Just be nice. Getting angry and frustrated in much of the world doesn’t help at all. It’s incomprehensible, you lose face, it makes you look ridiculous. Have a willingness to try new stuff. Be grateful for any hospitality offered. And be flexible in your plans, because a rigid itinerary is lethal to a good time.” 
I absolutely loved Anthony Bourdain. He was a great storyteller who I was lucky to see live a few years ago. I loved following his adventures of travel, food and drink while interacting with people in many places in the world that I likely will never see. Anthony was one of my favourite people on television. Thankful his legacy will carry on through his many shows and the stories he has left the world. Sad to see his final episode of Parts Unknown air this evening.
Anthony – you are definitely be missed and always remembered. RIP.

Palliative Care is …

“Palliative care is not what happens when all treatments have failed. It does not mean “giving up” or “stopping the fight.” If you are fighting cancer or Lou Gehrig’s disease, palliative care means a team of people — such as doctors, nurses, social workers and others — will help make sure you have what you need to continue fighting.” Dr. Jeff Myers – University of Toronto
