Good Morning Readers! I was looking thru a past issue of a Women’s Day magazine (Oct. 2011) Women’s Day said that just 30 minutes of exercise 5 days a week can cut your breast cancer risk by nearly 20%. And that regular exercise (2.5 hours a week, which you can break up into five 30-minute brisk walks) not only helps to keep your weight in check, it can also lower estrogen levels and boost your immune system, helping to prevent any abnormal cells from growing and spreading. And if you do get breast cancer, KEEP MOVING. Breast cancer survivors who did the equivalent of one to two hours of brisk walking a week had a 40% lower risk of dying from breast cancer,according to a study from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. SO KEEP WALKING PEOPLE and THINK PINK every month of the year. WALK ON !!!!!!!!!!http://shopworndesigns.etsy.com
October has no butterflies and so we told Jack Frost, to make a million right away no matter what the cost. And so he painted all the leaves a lovely red and brown, then he shook the branches hard and made them flutter down.
“Autumn is the second spring, when every leaf is a flower.” —Albert Camus
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” —Emily Bronte
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” —Stanley Horowitz
“The best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable, and serious. It glows moderately and not frivolously…It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable.”—Valentin
“Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.” —David Letterman
