I’m a husband a father, and Godfather. I served for a POTUS and as AP Bureau Chief among others, but my greatest joy is as grandpa.

I realize I have had a rich and fulfilling life, filled with experiences ranging from professional achievements to the joys of family. Being a proud husband, father, and grandpa brings immense happiness and satisfaction. My advice about embracing intelligence, facing challenges with positivity, and adapting to change should resonate deeply. Family and wisdom are central to my core values.

On Sunday some of my favorite ladies and I went on a stroll along Central Park’s Cherry Blossom trail. The winds grounded many pedals.

I tried keeping up with my baby girl, my first grandchild and my wife but I’m not as fast and fit as I once was. However I thoroughly enjoyed the hike and the view. https://www.centralparknyc.org/cherry-blossoms

HEALTHY BEANS

The following - Garbanzo, Kidney, Lima, Pinto, Cannellini, Black, Navy, and last but not least Great northern beans are healthy.

All beans are relatively healthy. Beans — regardless of their variety — are high in protein, rich in fiber, and contain a range of vitamins and minerals. Even the slightly less healthy options still have that nutritional base to work from. So, when we're thinking about comparatively unhealthy beans, it's due to extras such as added sugar, high sodium levels, and the addition of processed meats.

Potato Heads Up

This is why should rub your car windshield with a potato. How many times have woke up to find a cold frozen car windshield?

My old friend, who I like o call Brother Moon says this not only is delaying the departure to our destination, but it is a nuisance and a hassle.  Our options are to scrape off the ice or deice the windshield with a store-bought or homemade deicer or use a cut piece of potato. https://youtu.be/AErz6zswKxc
