What a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday – World Meteorological Day.

I have a definite affinity to all things weather wise.

Excuse me – the sun’s shining and the sky is clear blue.  I’m going to celebrate.  I’ll let you guess what. 🙂


World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day – a day set aside to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.

I’m going to stay off of my soapbox today and just give you some facts.

The first fact is that AIDS is a global problem.  It’s here.  It’s there. It’s everywhere.

The second fact is that CHILDREN are born, live and die with HIV/AIDS.

People are often quick to judge when they learn that someone they know is HIV positive or has developed AIDS.

Oops, I’m up on my soapbox.

Before I come down from it, let me say – how can you judge a newborn baby who comes into this world HIV positive?

Get the facts. Let go of prejudice and fear.

People are dying…children are dying.

Let’s work together to make HIV/AIDS history.
