Buddy System Sign

  This was taken with bronze statues in Jacksonville, Florida. I go to conferences when I can. This was when we were visiting family in Jacksonville. The sign reminds people to use the safety of the 2 in and 2 out that Firefighters use, and the Buddy System that Law Enforcement, Military, fishing and hunting and kayaking, and scuba diving, and sky diving and anything that revovles around men. Men aren't abducted and raped, so why don't women use this secret defense men use? Don't blame a victim for being alone. Encourage people to look out for each other and use the Buddy System. Businesses would make more money if people "brought a friend."

New Bike Route

  Not much interest in people walking? http://www.northwestgeorgianews.com/rome/news/local/new-bike-route-links-atlanta-to-chattanooga-from-silver-comet/article_ad96c9c8-813e-11e5-a039-4bc5bcf83aa4.html



 Remember when the kudzu crashed and there was a landslide in several places along the Silver Comet Trail? Kudzu is heavy and not the answer for soil erosion from land slides. I had pictures of people walking and riding when this was not done, and there were signs to stay off.  People really did not want to follow rules.

Going it alone

   I came up with the idea of #InstantBuddy because I don't have kids or relatives near me and I am alone so much. When I talk while I am shopping or in the parking lots to women, I know they are not going to hurt me. Have I made long lasting friends out and about. YES! Why miss an opportunity to meet friends? I also say hello to men and I do not keep my eyes down. Confidence is part of safety and I want to be able to identify people!

So where can I buy a decal for my toilet? It would make me laugh so much. I would buy this for so many people!

Waste water treatment plant uses the Buddy System

 There were men and women using the Buddy System to protect each other from falls and accidents. Bob went outside with me with the snow. We saw a young family with a baby who was seeing her first snow.

First Aid Kit

   In Luke 9 and 10 Jesus tells people to do ministry in pairs. I found a duo that sings with a sound like Simon and Garfunkle. They sing a song that Paul Simon wrote called "America" and I thought I would share it.
Papa Ted and Gee Gee

First Aid Kit is a duo. A wonderful duo with two women. Please, if you are a woman, reach out and ask someone to go with you. Don't do so much alone. And listen to First Aid Kit when you can. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3TzP-o4vhs
