Some girls wait for a Sugar Daddy to give them handouts such as money, provisions, cloths and sometimes cars…hmmm. My people(Yoruba) have a saying “ohun to nbe leyin efa o ju eje lo” Literal meaning: the numbers that come after 6 goes beyond number 7. It can connote “All that glitters is not gold”, “Be careful of that serpent that plays good music in your ears”; “Be wise” and more depending on the context of use.

Today’s free book is Adventurous Alex: What Can I Be?
Join Alex as she travels through the animal world in the first book of the Adventurous Alex Series, What Can I Be? Alex asks various animals who she is, including an owl, fish, monkey, lion and a gecko, all of whose answers leave her more confused than when she started. It is not until she asks her mom, does she discover who she is, confirming what we all already know, Mom knows best.
Adventurous Alex is a great children’s bedtime book series for early and first time readers. It’s a series I developed to entertain and educate our young children before bedtime and hope it can do the same for yours. The series is great for infants, toddlers, preschool and kindergarten kids.

It is also estimated that by 2050 people over 60years old will out number the younger generation.In the light of this increasing population of elderly persons, society must begin to plan for how to care for her Senior Citizens. Don’t forget that these are the years when they are out of active workforce and are dependent on others for care.
Many times people do not even know where to turn to to get adequate care for their older family members. Personally my mum is hypertensive and she has a scheduled visit to the hospital monthly and my father just underwent a surgery that cost some good money. My mum’s check up and drugs requires funds which we, her children have to provide. Thanks to my sister who works at a hospital and monitors her check ups and makes access to her drugs easy on the rest of us. But many times the burden can be much and just recently we were talking about getting our parents an insurance health care cover at a geriatric health center, the first of it’s kind in Nigeria. So here i am trying to share this information with you; it just might be what someone is looking for.
