This may seem a bit much, but I just came across this news article that makes me a little furious.

There's a ton of money in the system for diabetes the could go to truly beneficial research, treatments, and ( what the JDCA wants the most) possible cures, and some of it went to fund…this?


I'm pretty sure that common sense and five minutes thought could've produced the same educated conclusion.

I have read the article. Any parent who allows theiir youngest to sit in front of the boob tube, should know to let them out of the hoiuse to play! BUT this generation does not know how to play outdoors as we did in the 50s and 60s growing up. The neighborhood kids always payed til it got dark at 9pm in the summer, went sledding in the winter, played baseball in the field of slag, as a Boy Scout we hiked of buns off till at least 5-6 pm on Saturdays, or went camping Friday nites ` What was TV? Mitch Miller, the fights, the Silent Service, Joe Friday, Wagon Train ~~ shows the whole family cold watch! I'd rather be optdoors then couped up in the house… I usually walked everyshre I could. Now you know my Age, well I am proud to be a part of that generation born after WW2! Ilearned to be the person who could do things, think things oiut without a computer, learned to help the elderly, went to Church & feared the Lord! That's who I was as a teen! Grandpa Bill
