OK... you know it's coming.... DAY 10 DOWN!!!!!  Smoke free!( I know it's cheesy, but it just makes me feel better!)

( await applause )

Actually tonights blog has a lot to do with smoking.  For the last few days on Fox news and USA today... They have had studies and articles posted on " How to avoid Alzheimer's".

#1... Manage high blood pressure

#2...Stop Smoking

#3...Increase physical activity

Ok... I know that you are aware that I lost my Mom a year ago, but I don't know if you were aware that she had Alzheimer's.  I began researching on the net regarding this new info that the media seemed to be throwing at me. 

You know, that in the back of my mind, I'm thinkin' Who knew Smoking and Alzheimer's are directly linked... none the less through research... That would be Mom!  OK Mom... I got ya!

I'm still wondering how she got FOX News and USA Today to back her on this?

So glad I quit smoking 10 days ago!

My mom! Betty King Goff

Mike, My blood pressure is fine, but I'm trying to decrease my salt intake. Jim and I have been playing a little golf and walking in the evenings! Thanks again for the words of encouragement!

This doesn't surprise me at all. My grandfather started smoking when he was 14 and didn't stop until he was in his mid 70's and simply forgot that he smoked... thanks, Alzheimers.

About Me
I was a working mother of 2 boys! I didn't have much time for cooking... now that the boys are grown and on their own... I have been enjoying learning and appreciating the art of cooking. I started with a day of baking with my mother in law and I was hooked! Not to mention my new stepkids... what was two... now is four! Our family is growing we now have a grandson, Damien, and one on the way! My grandson loves his visits with Gramma and Grampa...We spend quality time in the kitchen snd chronical our visits here on AR!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! It is my therapy...I love to buy and read all types of recipe books ( call me old fashion ) but it's fun to pick out 1 recipe in a new book and try it the day I get the book!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I have great times cooking meals together! When the kids come to visit we let them request their menu of choice. Funny twist... my two boys request Jim's culinary feasts... Jim's two request Stepmom's dinner delights! Works out fine at the end of the day!
My cooking triumphs
Check out my pics, the wedding cake? It was my 1st attempt at a wedding cake... can you believe it... I still can't!
My cooking tragedies
so many... hard to pick just one! but isn't that the joy of cooking?
