It was an unlikely accident, and the only indication that something had gone wrong was a triggered medical alarm inside the home.
The subscriber registered to the Rescue Alert alarm system was a woman over age 65 and living alone, according to her profile. But EMS found the home empty despite the personal alarm the woman had activated from that same location. The Rescue Alert calltaker was unable to get any information because no one answered at the home.
That means my kids are grown and out of the house, and I don’t have the same income and time constraints that I experienced when they were younger and living at home. That means I can enjoy some of the finer things in life, like a foot massage every once in a while and a pedicure every three to four weeks. There is nothing like soaking my feet and having them pampered.
Now this is going to sound strange, and it’s just my own opinion; feet are just plain ugly. If you pay attention to the feet around you, there’s not much in the way of pretty to observe about them.

Salt Lake City’s Mayor Ralph Becker is a bicycling proponent. Big time. And since he is technically my boss as chief executive, I feel somewhat obliged to give his bicycling initiatives thoughtful consideration. I’m not a bicyclist at heart, and coming to work perched on two wheels will never happen for me; however, in the spirit of community I decided to take my bike to the streets pedaling alongside other officials celebrating the Year of the Bike.
