Have A Safe and Joyous Thanksgiving and Turkey Day!

         On tomorrow, November 25th, families all over the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving or what I like to call, TURKEY DAY! It's a time to look around the table at all the family and friends we have in our lives. It's a time to reflect on what we are grateful for most and what we can do better the next time to be even more grateful.

There will be many senior citizens in nursing facilities and other places alike, who will be without family. I hope that you will keep these unknown senior citizens in your prayers as you enjoy your Thanksgiving. Everyone needs to be prayed for sometimes and I will do the same.

Don't forget to tell that special senior citizen in your life, how much you love them and appreciate all that they have sacrificed for you and the family.

I want to send a 'Thank you' on behalf of TheOldFolksKnowBest.com to all my subscribers and guests who have come to read and learn something new on my site.

I'm looking forward to bringing my first LIVE interview to the site in the coming week! I can't wait to share my first senior moment with you. It is guaranteed to inspire anyone at any age to follow their passions and dreams for life.

Also, if you have not already, don't forget that until December 5, 11:59pm/EST, you can ENTER MY 'Give Them Thanks' CONTEST! Just leave a comment about a senior citizen in your life you are thankful for and why. You will automatically be entered into the drawing for $50 Cash and a Matching $50 is sent to St. Vincent's Meals on Wheel in your name!

Okay, Everyone...Happy Thanksgiving and TURKEY DAY!

Many blessings to you,

Selena Brown

Holiday Gift For The Grand-kids -- Hop-A-Long's Schoolhouse Holiday Bonus Package


       I was contacted by the creator of Hop-A-Long's Schoolhouse to share their educational products with my senior citizen community who may be looking for that very special gift this holiday season for the grand-kids.

        This is what they had to say about their products, Hop-A-Long's Schoolhouse:
Our products have been field tested with thousands of children and were created by a group of educators.  The goal of our products is to help teach children to be good caretakers of the planet.  The DVD features literacy, science, environmental awareness, character building, music, dancing and lots of laughter.
         Here's what some moms are saying about their products. I was so impressed how their children were so attentive from reading about their experiences with this product. I listed a couple of great reviews here that you can copy and paste into your browser to go over:

Stay Tuned! First LIVE Interview With 90 Year Old Viola Player!

Hello Everyone!

I am so EXCITED to soon share with you my very first, LIVE Interview, shooting/recording this weekend, with a Senior Citizen friend of mine who has literally found their new calling in life and use it today at age 90 years old.

Although his wife lives with the Alzheimers disease, it has not slowed down anything within their household. He has become a new man and it has forced him to learn new things and re-create himself even in his senior journey through life.

I hope this LIVE Interview will inspire and give you hope to understand, whether young or in your seasoned year, you can live your dreams!

STAY TUNED...

With Love,

Selena

World Diabetes Day is November 14th!

Hello Everyone!
Let's Take Control of Diabetes. Now!

I was in the Veterans Hospital today getting my annual check up and saw a flyer about World Diabetes Day. I thought it would be great to share this information with you and hope that you will take the necessary steps to get yourself checked for diabetes with your primary care physician. Don't let your symptoms go overlooked. Our bodies give us warning signs and it's up to us to follow them and quiet them.

Education is Key! Empower yourself through education and then TAKE ACTION!

There is a great website for you to learn more about diabetes at:

Sincerely,

Selena
