**Charity begins at home: Wired birthday gift to my brother in Berlin. Right after Berlin Wall came down, his store was broken into several times. Insurance couldn’t help, and he went into bankruptcy. Things never got any better.
**In his weekly message “The Results Are In” Dr. Sanjay Gupta wrote, “A 4-year-old girl in Iowa nearly died and is now blind because of the flu, and her parents have a message: Get your child vaccinated…It turns out the flu had affected Jade’s brain, including the part that perceives sight…
The 2019-2020 flu season has already been projected to be one of the worst in decades: Since October 1, the CDC estimates at least 19 million people in the US have been infected with the flu, and between 10,000 and 25,000 have died from it. Considering all the concern surrounding coronavirus, it’s worth remembering this much more common — and potentially deadlier — virus…
The best way to protect yourself from both the flu and coronavirus is basic science. Get your flu shot, if you haven’t yet, and remember to cover your mouth when you cough, and wash your hands often.”
Flu season can last until May. You can still get the flu shots and protect your family. Make old fashion chicken soup with Mushrooms and Turmeric. Mushrooms fight flu and the cold and Turmeric is anti-oxidant that cures lot of diseases. Also, drink Pineapple tea. Bring a cup of water to a boil add 2 pinches of turmeric, a pinch of salt and ½ cup of crushed fresh pineapple, stir well and serve warm. Check with your doctor first.

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely. Thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
