A Milestone... or "Blogstone"?

This will be my 100th post on the Feedin' Mama blog, a "blogstone" if you will. Hard to believe that I have managed to come up with that much to say but I hope it has been relevant, interesting or at least somewhat useful to folks dealing with older adult issues of their own or for someone in their care. Thanks to all of you who stop by from time to time and I hope you keep checking in to see what's new.

Here is some timely information for such a monumental moment in the Feedin' Mama Empire - I heard a presentation at the VOICE, Inc. meeting this morning on Real$ense Prosperity Campaign which is a United Way initiative here in NE Florida. It is a financial services program that provides financial classes that can help set up a spending and saving plan and repair your credit. There is also tax preparation assistance and a matched savings program and it's all free of charge for qualifying individuals. For tax preparation you must be either 60 years old or have a total family income of less than $45,000. A list of locations to get tax preparation assistance is here. For more information on these and other United Way programs and services you can dial 211 (in Duval County) or go online at You can use 211 for all manner of information. Give them a call if you need information on medial and health services, support groups, help for crime or abuse victims, emergency assistance and a whole lot more. It's a good number to know.
