Wednesday August 13, 2014 Berlin Wall anniversary

Night the Wall went up, I was listening to Radio Moscow news. But it was next day before I found out what had happened.

The newscaster kept explaining Why This Step Was Necessary. And I kept waiting to find out what that step was.

***"Turn of the century charm," real estate ad in a neighborhood paper. Someone hadn't noticed the 20th century is over.

***To Waite House for monthly NAPS (Nutritional Assistance Package for Seniors), and for twice-monthly produce giveaway.

The produce giveaway is preceded by a presentation. This time, on sugar in bottled drinks. You might be surprised to learn that sodas and energy drinks have unhealthy amounts of sugar.

We were urged to sign up for a "sodacation." Refrain from drinking sodas with sugar between August 17th and September 2nd. Participants to get a choice of free items at the end; with drawing for a grand prize the following week.

I signed up.

***Seen from bus on the way home: a stilt-walker with butterfly-like wings. Part of a local health expo.
