About me

 

 


 People ask me about the name of my blog and the Radish part.  I used radishes because they are visual attractive, round and red. And when old, they are old a little caustic and biting.   Sometimes that is me

 I live in Northeastern Florida, and I moved here from Puget Sound of Washington.   My subject matter is always in flux.  I go through different crazes and my blog goes with me.  I enjoy food, photography, I love my family, and I am creative always.  I write about life.   Lately I have included some politics and religion.

May 18, 2016

 

A landmark of Palm Coast, Florida.  Now it is apartments, shops and restaurants.  It was developed as a cancer center with apartments for the patients. and all the doctors etc. on the campus.  

 

Starting today I have family coming, and I am traveling with family and this will go on for weeks.  Blogging is never good when I have family here, but when traveling I sometimes have unscheduled time, as when everyone else goes to work.  

Yesterday I called a childhood friend who still lives where we went to high school and Jr. High.  We went  through the litany of how are friends are, and in this case she is the one who knows.  She is the historian, and social secretary.  One of our friends now has Alzheimers, unwilling to cook or clean, and only places games on the computer.  This is the first of personal friends in my age range where demetia/Alzheimers has reared it ugly head. That only happened to my friends parents.  

The friend with Alzheimers, her husband says it is very lonely life for the care giver. . This wretched discease is a long one. And very expensive to deal with because one needs help, and one can not be the single caregiver.  It takes so long to die.  There are only a few political characters I would wish this upon. 

 

When I heard about her playing games on the Internet all day,  I was especially embarassed of my playing Spider solitaire. But it has not stopped me much.
