Papa’s World – keeping the mind sharp – remembering

Every day – I try to remember whatever I can about the past !

Some days – you are on top – others – well – you forget

Keeping up with memory – both short term and long term – requires concentration – at least that is my way.

I have little tricks I use to remember – like my keys – I try to always put them in one place when I am not using them – and when I go someplace – they always going my left hand pants pocket.

If they are not there – then I am in trouble – because in my mind I have to back track from the last time I remember having them.

I think food has a lot to do with it !

I think what food we eat – has a lot to do with memory – just how I feel.

Everyday – for my memory I take OMEGA’S 3 – 6 -7- 9 -made from algae. I really do not like the taste or after taste of fish oil – and I am not keen on fish and mercury.

Developing habits – I find helps me tremendously – find a routine and stick with it – when you vary – is when you forget – at least for me !

Find a nutrition supplement

When you deal with your mind – find a nutrition supplement – read the research – whole food is important – processed food is not – drink whole food when you can – plant based is what I eat and drink.

I hope this helps – short term and long term memory – keeping it for as long as you can.

Oh – I also read – I absorb interesting things – just little tidbits – you would be surprised when you answer what no one else remember – simply because you found it interesting somewhere along the way !

Papa’s World – retired – being healthy – a day in my life

What I do in a day of my life

I worked 47 1/2 years for the same company – prior to that – I started working when I was going into my Junior year of H.S.

I decided when I retired – almost 50 years of working – was enough !

Me – Sherry – Steve- Elaine – Cindy & Buck

It was important to maintain our friendships – stay in touch – here are four of our closest friends.

Buck and I – NWPA – golfing vacation

It was important for me to stay active and play golf.

Our six grand children – 5 grand daughters and then Bode .

Family is very important to me , when we moved to NVA – Sherry’s daughters followed us there . My two sons stayed in NWPA – we see them when we visit. In the 20 years – the Va.family has grown – and being there – we see them often if not daily. My family I grew up with is almost gone – I have a niece – great niece’s – brother’s daughter – great – great niece and 2 great – great nephews – everyone else including uncles -aunts are gone.

We have a little side business – actually it provides the income to stay where we are.

We live in a very expensive part of the country – in fact – this county has the highest income per household in the country. We moved here 20 years ago for work and then Sherry retired almost 7 years ago – and went full time into that business of health and nutrition. I followed one year later – and – it has been the income that has provided us the time to stay where we are.

North Shore – Oahu

We travel – we play golf – we see the country – but we also maintain a healthy lifestyle – eating right – and continue to inspire people to do the same – all the while being paid to do it !

You have to remember – retirement means Social Security – if you have a pension plan – 401 K – and whatever else you have saved. PLAN ” B ” – if you want to maintain – you have to have a plan. Ours – we planned 13 years ago and have stayed the course.

The three amigo’s for over 38 years.

Family life – friends – and maintaining health are important for us. All three – with church and God – are our mainstays of life. Giving – helping – praying and attending church – go hand in hand with our life. But – having fun – seeing friends – and watching the family grow – is to me what retirement is all about.

Cindy and Sherry

My wife is extraordinary – a natural born leader – a certified health coach – along as being a true friend to many. She is my crutch – the one I follow on health and nutrition and the reason I am still alive today.

A typical dinner meal for me

Eating healthy – sticking to the plan – and taking my nutrition supplement – and following what she says and does are my secrets to life.

The TOWER GARDEN – we grow inside and outside – year round.

We grow our own produce – April through October outside with two Tower Gardens – anything that does not grow on a tree! And then as you see above – we grow inside our garage November through March. Always fresh and no pesticides – we know what we are eating and growing.

Team Generations

Our team has grown over the years – conference time is twice a year – all over the Country – as is the team – simply sharing by word of mouth. Families – children – helping each other – maintain that healthy life style.

Sherry -Debby ( QMND – soon to be NMD )

In October we will travel to Austin Texas – where we are planning to watch our daughter Debby be promoted to National Marketing Director for the Juice Plus Company – when she will make a full time income she could not of made in the Corporate World ! With extremely generous benefits – and help for college tuition for all three of her children.

Our goal of maintaining our lifestyle in retirement with a PLAN ” B” has been met and continues – growing year by year.

We would love to share it with you – it is not easy – life isn’t easy either – but you make it what you want it to be.

It is up to you – we supply the help – the guidance – we are there.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com is where you contact Sherry – and look at all the different video’s – both on the health and business.

I am writing this blog today – my only regret is that SOMEONE out there did not share it with us 25 years ago – I wish they had – but we found it 13 years ago and our own PLAN” B” has worked.

Thank you for reading – and remember #livinglifetotheplus is real –

Papa’s World – retirement – loving life to the plus doing it my way.

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time

In 2005 – we started our journey – ” LIVING LIFE TO THE PLUS ” !

It was my wife Sherry who first started and and after 3 1/2 months – I finally got it through my thick Irish head that “HEY” something is happening!

Little things – but first where did this all take place ? Well – she said to me – there is a Health Expo at the D.C. Capital One center – and is sponsored by the network NBC for your health . Well – I was game – and into Washington D.C. we went !

Now – with over thousand of vendors – my aim was to go to the stage and concessions – eat and watch the entertainment – and meet up later. Which is exactly what I did. She in turn – found a Healthy eating booth – and bought the product – Fruits – Vegetables and berries in a capsule !

Since she hated vegetables ( since then she has developed a craving for them ) it was a easy fix for what she was not eating ! However – as I was eating my second cheeseburger ( yes – I was that bad ) she asked me if I wanted to try this out ? NOPE – I was fine – I went to have my checkup every six months – I was on MEDS and had no desire !

Long story short – I STARTED TO NOTICE LITTLE THINGS – like her hair was more shiny – her fingernails were growing faster – she was able to read at night in bed without her glasses – and she started eating vegetables ! That was something she hated !

So – I asked her – why are you doing this and what made you try it ? She replied – I needed to make a change and it was there – it clicked plus they had the RESEARCH proving what it did ! ( today there are 36 published papers) Then she said – ” YOU CAN DO THIS WITH ME – OR I WILL DO IT WITHOUT YOU – BUT I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE ” !

That was the day we both started living ” LIFE TO THE PLUS ” ! Almost 14 years now – and – because I was a terrible fast food junkie for 35 years – I paid the price – I had done the damage before I started my new eating lifestyle. In 2013 – I had the WIDOW MAKERS heart attack !

One blockage of 100 % – one at 90 % – one at 79 % and one at 60 % !

All those years – eating bad – BUT – had I not changed – I would not be here- the doctors told me just that – I was the most healthy heart attack person they had ever seen. I had FOUR BY PASSES – and within 52 hours – I was home standing in my living room being nicknamed ” THE RABBIT ” for how fast I recovered by the hospital staff !

Now one of the researches done by the University of Maryland – was on the Berries and how when combined with the fruits and vegetables – helped to keep the arteries open after a high fat meal !

I honestly believe that it was that one thing that kept me alive! I will always believe that – and that is why today we are LOVING LIFE TO THE PLUS !

JUICE PLUS was and is my savior – I believe that – it is my life and my belief. I will continue to take it – and almost 14 years later – I have my wife to thank for it . For without her telling me – ” I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE TOGETHER” and ” I WANT YOU WITH ME ” well – I am still here – this is just a part of my story of living out my dreams.

Thank you all for reading – “PAPA’S WORLD ” is alive – God Bless ! HGD

I find myself looking – looking and looking to see POSITIVE !

GOOD MORNING

I try to find it always – I force myself to think it –

I believe in it therefore I find it !

Positive thinking for me has become routine.

And it has been that way my entire adult life.

My Motto

END – Effort never dies – I look for other ways –

FAIL – First attempt In Learning – I read – I watch – I search – then I process-

NO – Next Opportunity – when one door closes – open another & another –

I see opportunities – I see chances – I try to see both sides –

Give what you can

I do not have a lot – but I give what I can –

Mind – Soul – Laughs – Smiles – Greetings –

Those are FREE –

A simple act

An older couple – a diverse couple –

I later learned from India –

I was sitting on my front porch –

It started to sprinkle –

They stopped under my tree for shelter – it rained harder –

I asked them to come onto the porch –

The wind picked up –

I invited them inside until it passed –

They were grateful –

BEING KIND –

Looking – looking and looking – finding positive –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – married – some funny things – life with Sherry

It all began 38 plus years ago – a journey – a epic adventure –

Opposites in so many ways – but so same in other ways !

A grade school friend of mine is embarking upon a bike ride –

a 450 mile bike ride – for charity – his wife is driving the motor home

I ONCE rode a bike for 34 miles –

NEVER AGAIN !

THAT IS ME !!

She talked me into riding through the streets of DC.

They were playing the theme song of ” ROCKY” at the start !

She said – “LETS DO THE WHOLE COURSE – YOU CAN DO IT ” !

That is my wife Sherry –

she always knows no boundary and that is why I married her !

About 3 miles from the finish line –

I CRAMPED UP !

I had to get off the bike and walk –

or they would have to take me to the hospital !

My thighs were balling up –

That was my first and last time riding in a bike tour !

Didn’t bother her a bit –

But – I will say up to then it was fun !

I will get dressed – we are going somewhere –

Then – I GET THE EVER SO CRITICAL EYE !

Your shirt has a spot on the back of the shoulder !

I look – and look – pin head size – yet she spotted it !

Change shirt –

put in laundry room –

HOW DID SHE SEE THAT ?

She could actually take the place of those satellites in space

The kind that can see a golf ball from a thousand miles away !

Give me a drink and friends

Now she can sing – I can’t –

I sound like a old love sick coon hound !

But – when we do get together with friends –

The KARAOKE MACHINE comes out –

Cindy ( the lounge lizzard ) has a portable one –

We always sip a few – toss back some fireball

and begin our singing !

Sherry gets into it after a glass or two –

Again – having fun – laughing –

38 years of it !

Together all these years

The ability to laugh with and at each other –

Parking lots – we always end up in a parking lot when she drives –

No good reason to be there –

we laugh about it –

I can’t hear or so she says

I get mail on hearing aids –

She swears she had nothing to do about it

It is the little things in life that makes her my best friend.

38 years is a long time

life is good

life is funny

LIFE WITH SHERRY

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – “My fit bit isn’t recording my steps” !

For the last 4 or 5 years – I have heard this over and over !

Notice fit bit on wrist

Sherry tells me this all the time – my fit bit records differently than hers !

Even though we walk the same distance !

So – I swapped – I wore hers -she wore mine !

And she is right – I still recorded more steps !

Then she posted on face book asking if anyone knew WHY !!!!!

Well – you can imagine the response –

anything from she has longer legs – most likely true –

to I take more steps – untrue –

as we walked today and she was matching my stride –

and I still had plus 300 steps !

She is tall – I have her by a inch !

She has to swing her arms – I grabbed some books from the free trail library

I didn’t swing my arms carrying them – I still had more steps !

She has a much longer stride – there fore I take more steps !

PLEASE !!!!

So – how do you explain it ?

Some say calibrate the fit bit – she did –

still the same !

Now – like me –

when I walk by her computer –

( she tells me to stay away from it )

Something will happen –

It is just the way of my life !

So my theory –

IT SOMEHOW IS HER !!!!!

X FILES !!!

What I say

So – I tell her –

it is not how you got to the THREE PLUS MILES –

But the fact in the end –

it still is THREE PLUS MILES !!!!!

Now that goes over like a lead balloon –

But in the end – we both did the same distance –

And to be truthful

It just does not mean as much to me as it does to her –

sort of like my PHONE –

I only use it to talk to her or take pictures ! LOL

( by the way – it does the same things as my computer – it isn’t me )

So – today – she still thinks that I am not doing all those steps !

Of course – I just think –

” It isn’t me to question why – but for me to do or die “

So – I ask her first and adjust my steps according to what she says ! LOL
