February is National Heart Month. This month might be a great time to schedule your annual check up just to make sure that the old ticker is working properly. If diagnosed early, many health issues such as heart attack and stroke can be avoided or treated.
February is also African American History Month. Please take the time to talk to your children and grandchildren about the role that African Americans have played in the history of our great nation. Teach them about the contributions made by such great Americans as Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver and Martin Luther King Jr. as well as others.
I want to take this opportunity to wish my son Earl a very happy 25th birthday. Earl will celebrate his birthday on Tuesday. He has struggled to achieve even the smallest bit of success all of his life. Dude, we are so proud of you and your accomplishments and we love you very much.
