Living with Chronic Illness…and my Birthday Cruise

richard london 9-30-2014

Show #142

 


I opened today’s show with a review of my first ocean cruise. Sheila and I took a brief five day cruise to the Bahamas out of Charleston, SC.  I discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Then, Richard London joins me for the balance of the program to discuss living with chronic illness. He shares some valuable tips for staying involved in life and keeping a positive attitude. There is much good information here, offered by Richard who lives – successfully and fully, with Parkinson’s Disease.

I close the program in the last few minutes with a discussion regarding the current phraseology being used on sports talk shows. I listen to many sports talk shows weekly, and I am frankly annoyed  with the over use of the following: “to me”, “for me”, “in my mind”, “personally”, etc. What ever happened to “in my opinion”, or “I think”? I guess they are on hiatus until further notice. At least, personally, for me, I was thinking that in my mind!

Many thanks to Richard and thank you for listening to Radio 4 the Ages and for being a part of my journey!
