That Darn Question
We Americans spend about 2 Billion dollars a year to combat this-what is it?
Dawn's Giveaway Hint....I first found out that I suffered from this when at Church one of the kids in the Sunday School class I taught said, Teacher, I'm glad you are my teacher, but you have THIS...are you mad at me now??? And of course I told him NO, and immediately grabbed a mint out of my purse.
Answer- Bad breath

Teen Saves Elderly Neighbor From House Fire
He’s technically still a kid, but that didn’t stop a 17-year-old from saving his next door neighbor’s life when a window-mounted air conditioner caught fire. Taequan Mitchell was at his family’s Savannah, Georgia home when he saw the flames next door and went to help.
The teen asked his mom to call the fire department while he went inside the home next door to rescue 85-year-old Stephen Solomon, who was asleep inside at the time. Savannah Fire Rescue spokesperson Jenel Few says Taequan woke Solomon and waited with him until firefighters put out the blaze.
“Not only did Taequan exhibit exemplary bravery, he had the foresight to close the door of the burning room, which helped to prevent the fire and smoke from spreading,” Few explains. The teen will be recognized by Fire Chief Charles Middleton for being a hero in his neighborhood.

Man, 98, Walks Six Miles A Day To See Wife In Hospital
August 22, 2018
Sometimes nothing will stand in the way of love and that’s true for 98-year-old Luther Younger of Rochester, New York. The elderly man has been walking around six miles a day for the last two weeks to see his wife in the hospital.
“I ain’t nothing without my wife,” Luther confesses. “It’s been a rough pull. It’s been tough.”
Luther, a Korean War veteran, has been married to his wife, Waverlee, for 50 years and she was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2009. Their daughters, Lutheta and Joyce take care of their aging parents and Lutheta says her dad doesn’t have to walk to the hospital, but he wants to. “I can drive him, “ she explains. “He just doesn’t want to wait; he’s impatient.”
A GoFundMe page has been created of the couple, to raise money for medical expenses and rides to and from the hospital. So far it’s raised over $33,000.
