Spring into Kindness

Monday, March 20th, 2017


Today is one of the most exciting days of the year, not only is it the first day of spring, it is also the 6th annual Spring into Kindness Day!
On this day you are urged to surprise someone with an act of kindness. You can even surprise a two-year-old French Bulldog puppy such as Vince. The return on my kindness to him was immediate. Puppy kisses are the best.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

There was a wonderful response at the Saint Patrick’s day parade in Naples, Florida for the upcoming ride around the perimeter of the United States for children with disabilities and differences. As I rode my bike along the route there was a rolling applause from time to time, sometimes a distance a few hundred feet as I slowly rolled by.
