F.A.Q. Oxygen & Road ID

Oxygen effects my memory or the lack of it affects all alphas. I still have a high oxygenation level but, my ability to remeber is not what it used to be. I've read and heard how our lower oxygen level effects our ability to remember things. There was recently an article in Newsweek magazine about how exercise has an effect on not only our mental attitude but, also our ability to remember things. Did I pick a copy betcha!! So, you fellow alphas get out there and EXERCISE!!

Road ID I'm sure most of you out there have never heard of it. Just think of it as a sporty medic alert bracelet. I encourage everyone of you, if you are active or exercise in anyway, to get one!! I plan to order one in the next day or so. I myself don't want to have any loud type of medic alert bracelet. I want one that blends in with my attire but, is still Very Much noticeable when sought by another when I am unconcious or near unconcious. When I don't have such an overfull plate so to speak, I plan to put a link to Road ID on my blog. I've got to gets some codes inplace in order to get things better linked up to the www.

I told my high school class secretary I would have those in place by April 15th, 2007..... Now, I have to stand and deliver!!
