Papa’s World – health – living laughter – evolving

MY LIFE

Living life – one day at a time –

and doing it my way ( well – her way also )

Welcome to PAPA’S World !

GOOD MORNING

This is part of my story – for it has many chapters.

I have been writing – on face book –

daily – since 2011 – EIGHT YEARS !

Sherry -my wife – said –

you write so well – but I am afraid it will get lost !

YOU HAVE TO START BLOGGING –

so we can have a place to go where we can read it !

Now – I had blogged a number of years ago and had a site –

actually two sites !

But my computer crashed

and I lost all the info –

Then a couple months ago –

with the help of a friend

Belinda Vallarino Cermola

She helped set me back up again –

and by accident –

we stumbled on my second blog site that I had lost !

Here it was –

and finding it was like looking up phone numbers –

as someone who can not see with out glasses !

But – we found it while setting up my new blog site –

livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

My criteria –

Make someone smile –

Make someone happy-

No politics –

Bring light to those who are in the dark –

And help people become as healthy as possible –

I had found only FIVE blogs on that site –

The other site is still out there someplace

with hundreds of blogs –

It was all on my computer –

and I could not remember the name or password –

Someday – I hope I can once again find it –

to recapture all those stories.

Today – I am blogging one day at a time –

I really have no idea each day what I will write about –

It just happens with a picture –

a thought – a quote –

or something that I experienced recently or during my life.

I started

and changed my format –

today – I follow my criteria –

I have now been blogging daily for the past 7 plus weeks !

In that short expanse of time –

I have been fortunate to have 55 people who have subscribed to my blog !

Most I do not know

and they are from all over the World !

This has given me the hope and confidence to continue –

Hoping to bring a change –

a good vibe –

My way to help in health –

I am evolving –

I am living my life –

doing it my way – one day at a time !

And a big hug to my best friend –

the person who encouraged me to write –

MY WIFE SHERRY !

and to Belinda – who helped me to restart –

And to all of you who read my thoughts and have joined –

It does not cost anything – you get a email every time I post !

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART

Papa’s World – Why I take JUICE PLUS & OMEGA’S

It has now been over 13 years since I started !

GOOD MORNING

My journey began with

” NO – I DON’T NEED IT ” !

Actually I DID NEED IT –

but I did not know what I DIDN’T KNOW!

1982

We were married on June 25 th. 1982 –

both of us ate terrible –

Smoked – drank Soda’s –

And thought we were invincible !

Little did we know

and when the time came for a change –

I KNEW LAST !

HOW WELL I KNEW THIS

Sherry came to me and said we are making a change –

well – she was !

It took me 3 1/2 months to see it to believe it !

That is when I started taking a supplement

( whole food ) capsules !

Fruits – Veggies – Berries –

that are JUICED – Slowly dried – into a powder –

And come packaged in

RED ( fruits) known as ORCHARD BLEND –

GREEN ( veggies ) known as GARDEN BLEND

PURPLE ( berries) known as VINEYARD

And the research shows as soon as they dissolve in your stomach –

THEY GO IMMEDIATELY INTO YOUR BLOOD STREAM !

THE POWER OF WHOLE FOOD

Everything is juiced including

the peels – rind – cores !

You get ALL THE NUTRIENTS !

THE CAPSULES INCLUDING THE ORANGE OMEGA’S and a smoothie

For me to be convinced

I had to SEE and READ –

NO PESTICIDES

That is just who I am.

NOW THERE ARE 36 RESEARCHES COMPLETED –

By MAJOR UNIVERSITIES & MEDICAL CENTERS & HOSPITALS

all over the WORLD !

JUICE PLUS

BRIDGE’S THE GAP BETWEEN RECOMMENDED & ACTUAL INTAKE

THIS IS HAPPENING

DOING SOMETHING –

not just thinking about it !

I have no regrets –

I will take this as long as I live.

I TAKE OMEGA’S FOR MY BRAIN

A year ago – I started taking another product from Juice Plus –

Called OMEGA BLEND –

made not from Fish oil –

But from Algae –

which is where the fish get it from –

Thus – no worries from MERCURY !

The company also have their own Algae Farms !

I guess we all have experienced this

When you reach your AUTUMN YEARS –

you try as hard as can to sustain a lifestyle that you have led.

You watch stairs –

you climb back up off the floor

Or gingerly kneel down on one knee –

You know when to play a game of kick ball or just pitch !

NO I CAN’T

You count MICRO SECONDS

to reach the bathroom !

BUT YOU MAKE CHANGES AHEAD OF TIME –

If you want to LIVE –

If you want to MAINTAIN that lifestyle –

Then you owe it to yourself to prepare –

to research –

To read and see what this is !

Are YOU worth $3.43 a day

for FRUITS- VEGGIES – BERRIES & OMEGA’S ?

IS YOUR HEALTH a matter of dollars and cents ?

WE ARE IN THE AUTUMN

This is my story –

my reason –

my wanting to maintain –

Enjoy life – watch my grand kids grow up –

Have a life partner who is my best friend.

Best thing I ever did was start 13 years ago –

Worse thing of my life –

” NO ONE SHOWED ME 25 YEARS AGO ” !

TOM & SHERRY living life to the PLUS

Thank you for reading

I hope this HELPS someone out there

We have been changing lives for 12 years now

And children –

well – we help them for FREE

Papa’s World – Grand daughters – each selected as MVP for their teams.

Sisters – three years apart – one graduated this week –

Going on to play Soccer at University Of Lynchburg , Va.

The other – returning as a Junior – and made the Travel Team –

BOTH SELECTED AS MVP of THEIR TEAMS –

At the same position – MIDFIELDER – by their coaches!

MADDY MEYERS & ELLA MEYERS

Maddy will continue her play in college –

But the other story here is of Ella –

last TWO YEARS –

She suffered a broken bone in her foot

( one of her teammates came down on it )

And then – after almost six months ( growth plate was fractured )

She came down on it wrong and suffered a hair line fracture to her arch.

Maddy and Ella

They have been close –

very close – all through the years !

I remember the time that Maddy got a new bed –

Ella came to me –

And just like you see her smile here in this picture –

She looked at me and said

” I’VE GOT MADDY’S BED ” !

She was so proud to have her sisters white whicker single bed !

My own thoughts have been sort of a

WHAT IF –

Had she not broken those bones in her foot –

she lost two years of playing.

And in her first year back –

she was selected as MVP

and made the Travel Team!

Her confidence is back –

they both play the same position –

Ella is growing –

she now is a little taller than Maddy –

Has a very good skill set –

And now will play on –

She once again believes

after watching from the side lines.

They both hold their MVP plaques

Graduation Party was Saturday –

guests – players – relatives.

The training has begun –

running hills – sprints –

and Ella has joined in.

It will be a fun Fall

as both will start playing again.

Once again – both will pursue their dreams –

Maddy in college – Ella for two more years in high school.

Sherry – very proud grandma
Signing letter of Intent

Madison Margo Myers –

University of Lynchburg Va. Lady’s Soccer

Ella Myers – James Wood High School –

Winchester Va. Soccer

High School – Maddy
Ella & Maddy & little cousins

BELIEVE

Hope you liked the tribute to both girls.

Papa’s World – OLD ? Maybe – but still thinking !

Good morning World – ever think out loud ?

Ever nod off around 2:00 PM. ?

Ever get up and it takes a moment to take that first step ?

Good morning everyone !

Getting “OLDER” is a fact of life – feeling it is also !

But – you also have to have the right frame of mind !

When younger – couldn’t wait

Now – in my before retirement life –

for my lunch hour ( because I did not know what else to do )

I would eat my lunch –

kick the seat back ( Buicks are made for comfort)

And take what I called a POWER 20 minute nap !

In the shade – warm breeze

I would leave the windows down – park in the shade –

And fall right to sleep!

Now- since retirement- it seems like that years & years habit –

Followed me – each afternoon – I feel it coming on !

Me on most nights

Thing is – now every day I go and pick up my 8 year old grand daughters –

I actually get there in line early – like a hour –

and there is a method to my madness !

I take a small couch pillow with me – kick the seat back –

Tune the radio into my favorite SPORTS show –

And slowly drift off for my 20 minute power nap !

I do this all the time

A lot of times I will just sit and think – using silence to sort out thoughts !

Over the years – I have quietly trained my mind to recall –

I picture events – that way it is easier for me to remember .

So true

But there are times when I just stop – and think – what was I going to do ?

I am a creature of habit – I have a place for most things –

I find that it makes it easier for me to remember !

I also concentrate on what I am doing or am going to say.

Concentration for me is my way to remember things !

Have done this

Now – I am also not one who measures every thing I do –

I learned from my Mother to cook from scrap –

She often would bake every day – pies – cakes – bread and rolls.

She did a lot of it with memory – and I am the same way.

Music soothes the soul

I love music – most all kinds –

” ALEXIA – PLAY JIMMY BUFFET ” !

I try not to limit my listening – on long trips –

I will listen to Country – Classic’s – Rock – Easy listening – Bluegrass –

It is my way to reconnect to past events !

My wife says I have a hearing problem

Hearing – I have found as I get older – I hear things – but –

A lot of what I hear SOUNDS like something else !

I think that as you get older – at least for me – that happens !

Still the same

My little thoughts for today on getting older –

But some things never get old – they just get better !

This month – 6-25-82 – will be 37 years –

I can still walk – I can still think –

I can do just about anything I want – only slower!

I am getting OLDER –

Together

BUT – I also am living –

ONE DAY AT A TIME !

Have a great day !

Papa’s World – The other side Reston’s hidden gem.

” Do you want to go to the farmers market ” ? she asked.

A farmers booth


Farmers booth

” Of course” I said – “where are we going” ?

“I will drive” she said.

That means – where ever it is –

it is easier for her to drive than tell me how to get there !!!!!

The Original Reston – “NEW TOWN ” Lake Anne Village

Today – it sits quietly hidden –

across the highway

from what is known as ” RESTON” town center.

A conglomerate of high rise office buildings – hotels – stores –

Huge parking garages

and what is now the last stop on the Silver Line Metro

( SEVEN MORE STOPS WILL BE COMPLETED BY 2021)

Lake Anne and the planned community- a large condo unit

It was one of the first PLANNED COMMUNITY

in the Country –

And it reminds me of the housing

FRANK LYOLD WRIGHT built –

Today – it is listed as a HISTORICAL SIGHT –

the entire town and surroundings

then- 1961 – it was planned as a area where you worked – lived and played !

Houses with shops below them

You buy a “HOUSE ” and along with it –

a retail space on the first floor !

The houses are two to four bedrooms –

the retail space you either lease out –

Or run your own business !

And – in the middle of all this a Lake

and down the street

a 18 hole golf course.

This concept was way beyond it’s time !

View of the square from one of the stores

The lake also has numerous homes –

all listed in the millions –

with their own docks and for the most part House boats !

I THINK PARTY CENTRAL IS THE MIDDLE IF THE LAKE !

The lake with paddle boats – kayaks to rent

You can rent paddle boats – kayaks – or just walk the miles of trails.

Architecture of the ’60 ‘s
You can see the housing with the store fronts under them.
One listed for $900,000.00
Part of the bricked streets
Lake Anne – tranquil – stand up paddle boats
Sherry and Ginger along the board walk of Lake Anne
Sherry with the statue of the creator of Lake Anne New Town

It is hard to believe that when you are at Reston Town Center –

That right across the street this all exists –

as it is surrounded by huge old growth trees –

and you can not see any of it !

Yet – it remains – a testament to a dream of planning –

Today – I share this with you –

it has been years since I have been here.

We almost always go to the CITY OF RESTON –

We catch the Metro there.

But just beyond the trees –

a Historical little village looms –

And on Saturdays –

HUNDREDS OF FARMERS –

They come from Maryland – Penna. and Va. – West Va.

set up their booths

and the quaint becomes bustling –

yet it remains quiet as NO CARS are allowed on it’s streets –

but you can walk – rent a boat or just sit and relax –

Tom – Sherry and Robert E. Simon Jr.
Founder and planner

Or lean in and kiss the one you love –

AFTER ALL – VIRGINIA IS FOR LOVERS !

Hope you enjoyed –

come back for more PAPA’S WORLD

Papas World – Our grand kids and health- eating healthy

Crazy as it reads
this is true
sugar is in everything

When we go to shows as a vendor-

we will demonstrate how much sugar is in

each popular drink – snack or breakfast cereals.

We do this by taking the total amount of grams of sugar

and dividing it by three – which then equals a 3 gram sugar packet

Like you find on tables to sweeten your coffee – tea etc.

The twins
Cassidy and Taylor

This method is a eye opener –

for parents to see just how much sugar is in a can of soda!

Or a packet of skittles – a candy bar – a snack bar!

Little children do not know and it becomes a addiction – SUGAR!

Our small grand children
all were born with their
mother taking Juice Plus

We found Juice Plus almost 14 years ago –

and were hooked when we read the research and what it does

over time in your body –

Health is not a quick fix –

IT TAKES TIME –

My regret – it has been around for almost 25 years

I wish I had been there from the start.

Taylor with MorMor
Non sugar drink

The twins were early – taken out of the womb

as Taylor was growing faster than Cassidy

At 32 to 33 weeks they came into the World.

And from day one – no complications

THEY WERE HEALTHY!

Tammy took Juice Plus for years before they were born

and all during the time she carried them.

The same for Bode
born healthy

There is a CHILDREN’S RESEARCH –

where one child is sponsored by one adult

Between the age of 4 and 19.

If the adult orders – a 4 month supply

The child will also get a 4 month supply ( free – just pay shipping)

and this will continue for FOUR YEARS –

as long as the adult continues!

And this apply’s to college students also ( you know how they eat)!

Sherry and Tom
We promote health
at 70 years old

This program has all our grandchildren on it

Yes – we sell Juice Plus –

Yes – we promote health

And yes we have helped hundreds

We travel – we attend seminars on health

Sherry is a certified Health Coach ( from Dr. William Sears)

We live the talk

and – in all these years

We have seen the results

IT WORKS!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

where friends meet the family

Papa’s World – MERMAID CLUB – DO NOT ENTER

You see – they have this club – the little ones that is –

called “THE MERMAIDS” – you must believe in order to enter !

The CLUB rules

It’s a rare club – only those ( the girls ) are allowed in – but little Bode – is a guest – but not a Mermaid !

Bode – a guest – just how can you keep him out !!!

The club was formed a few years ago – there was a planning session – at a Soccer game ( Maddy’s) and they convened – making it hush – hush !

Looking up club rules for the MERMAID CLUB

RULE # ONE – you must believe – you must recite the chant – and like water!

Maddy and Ella

Even though you like water – you can not belong if you do not believe – just ask Maddy and Ella – who were left out !

THE CLUB

The club ‘ s picture was drawn just before we checked out on the turn around – declaring the member’s.

The main three

As the years go by – and they continue to grow up –

“THE MERMAID CLUB ” will always be a part of it –

imagination – the remembering their youth – innocence –

three little girls and one boy.

ON THE BEACH – ALL SIX GRAND KIDS

My memory shall be not only the MERMAID CLUB –

but sharing a week – smiling – watching – seeing them come together –

and one little boy in awe of his sisters and cousins – looking at them !

Tom & Sherry – PAPA & MORMOR

This blog is about family memories –

a time that I have put down in writing – and photo’s –

to share but foremost –

a place to look back on and reflect on just another day in my life.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do –

memories are a test of time

Having a place to read and see them is priceless !

Thank you !
