Well here it is, the last day of January 2011 and I am still feeling like the month just started. We just finished the holidays didn’t we? (I promise I saw a neighbors Christmas wreath out for the trash yesterday and thought nothing of it!) and now it is almost February! What happened to January?
Where does the time go? Is it just me, or did this month just fly by? For some reason I feel as if I am stuck in a time warp or something! If I think back on the month of January there is nothing profound . . . → Read More: 153 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – January’s Old Wives Tales

The US was once seen as the land of opportunity for students from foreign countries to study and excel in fields of medical technology, bioengineering and the life sciences. Today there is a trend which shows the amazing brains who once melded into these fields of technological research after graduating in the US, are now returning to their own countries to put their US educations to work.
Today countries like China and India are becoming world leaders in technology utilizing the great minds we have educated here. If the opportunities are not available to put these brilliant minds to . . . → Read More: 155 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences
Little Kili has made quite the impression on our friends. Yes, in just one month, he has become the center of attraction for Geoffrey and me. This little five-year old rescue pup, who just one month ago was not getting enough to eat, suffering poor health from a mouth filled with infection, and lacking in basic care to keep him healthy, has now graduated to living a charmed life.
Earlier in the week, Kili received a wonderful invitation from Lulu, the other charmed pet belonging to our friends Russ and Debora. The invitation arrived via email and brought a lot . . . → Read More: 156 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Little Kili Gets First Formal Dinner Invitation
Since writing the very first post of Parker’s Climb in July of 2010, I always knew in the back of my mind that one day I would be faced with addressing the subject of animal testing for medical research. I guess I could avoid the subject, I could skip it altogether, in an effort not to offend anyone. Tonight, I read an article that is so well written that I decided it is finally time to put my thoughts into words.
Before I go further just let me say this – at various stages in my life, I have written . . . → Read More: 158 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Parkinson’s Disease Research – Animal Testing

Learning of the death of Jack LaLanne saddened me this week – I thought he might truly live forever! Whether you are an avid fan of fitness and exercise, or not, we all must admit, “he got it!” There is simply no doubt, Jack LaLanne was a healthier man than most, and his quality of life was superior to others who reach their late nineties.
Some of my first memories of watching black and white television, are of watching Jack on his regular morning exercise show. We got up and did the exercises with him when we were kids! My most . . . → Read More: 160 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Jack LaLanne – The Legend Will Live On
Sunday morning in Sebastian blew in with temperatures down to 37 degrees! Whew, when Lil Kili woke me up at 6:45 to go outside I thought I would freeze to death. The winds were still blowing from the northeast at a good 35 to 45 knots and all I could think about was running back up the stairs to my warm bed! And that is just what I did with Kili right on my heels!!
The day actually turned out to be quite nice with a high of around 62 degrees. Still a little on the cold side for us . . . → Read More: 161 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Sebastian Riverfront Fine Art & Music Festival
On the River, Just Another Day In Paradise
A beautiful, but chilly day in Sebastian for the Parker family! Geoffrey started out early bike riding with Jack and Elizabeth as I took Lil Kili to see Dr. Thorton to make sure he has recovered from his infection. All good news from the great Dr. Thorton. Kili has climbed his mountain back to good health and should be good to go! Our little rescue pup is now weighing in at 7 pounds – he has now gained two pounds from when we rescued him and he is at his ideal weight. . . . → Read More: 162 Days To Mt.
