October is here and with it many health challenges; What efforts are we making to take control of our health?

Good people,

October is here with us again: We thank God for life, health, family, friends and materials possessions which enhance our quality of life. More on life values was covered in the previous month’s blog; article for September: For many people October heralds the first month of the last quarter of the year and therefore sends a subliminal message that year end is around the corner.
