I have not had the time to write up an article re: drowsy driving week due to some time consuming issues here at home (nothing bad, it's all fantastic happenings, just extremely time consuming).
I did get a comment from a fellow pageant friend that I just had to post here on the main posting....it really hit a nerve with me when I read this!
"We just had a school bus driver in our community flip a school bus, she was so drowsy from medication she was on that she was driving on the wrong side of the road, drove right by two kids she was suppose to pick up, did not stop at the railroad tracks, then took a corner to fast and flipped the bus, thank god she only had 6 of her kids on instead of the bus full, and thankfully nobody was seriously hurt. This is definitely something that deserves a week so that people think of how deadly driving drowsy can be."

November is Jaw Joints-TMJ Awareness Month!
September 30, 1997-
Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank designated November as Jaw Joints-TMJ Awareness Month. His proclamation acknowledged that temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders (TMJDs) are "among the more painful, yet least understood disorders affecting people today."In May the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) kicked off an awareness campaign in the Washington DC area. The TMJA is excited to highlight this campaign on it's web site during Jaw Joints-TMJ Awareness month. To learn more about the campaign visit us at www.tmj.org

I was THRILLED to receive this letter from Z/Sgt. Wilkinson This afternoon! Looks as though the past years efforts were history making!!!
It is with great pride that I advise you of two recent announcements
from the :
The first is that 2007 was the safest year ever on New York’s roads.
Last year 1,317 people lost their lives on New York’s roads and highways; an 8 percent reduction from the previous year. This represents 116 fewer people who lost their lives on our roads, and that is a testament to the impact of your traffic safety efforts. As you may recall, in January 2008, the Superintendent commended you on your demonstrated commitment to traffic safety for having issued more than
one million traffic tickets for the first time in history. Research has consistently shown the correlation between high levels of enforcement and improved traffic safety, and your efforts clearly demonstrate this relationship.
The second announcement is an increase in the use of safety restraints by New York motorists, which contributed significantly to the improvement in traffic safety. Surveys commissioned by the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee this summer indicated that 89 percent of New York motorists were buckled up; a record high. Not surprisingly, the DMV statistics indicate that unbelted fatalities dropped by more than 20 percent between 2006 and 2007. In total, unbelted fatalities have been
reduced by more than 50 percent since the start of the Buckle Up New York Campaign. Though troopers comprise only about 16 percent of police manpower in the regions we patrol outside of New York City, you account
for 47 percent of the safety restraint enforcement. By driving up the use of safety belts among New York motorists, you are reducing the number of tragic outcomes among the crashes that do occur, and you should take great pride in knowing that your efforts are making a difference.
Congratulations on a job well-done.

I have to tell you something funny and cute my son is in Kindergarten and has to bring things in for show and tell every other Friday and he brang in the picture of you on the driving skills from Delacy and we have to fill out this sheet with things like where did you get it from and how long have you had it and and why did you bring this item in for show and tell and Joey wrote "because it always reminds me to buckle up." I thought it was so cute it just melted my heart like you wouldn't believe.Thanks for making a difference even in the eyes of the young.
I received the above message on my Myspace account. This message is exactly what keeps me going in my pursuit of educating American's on Traffic Safety.
The ultimate cause of my closed head injury, TMJ and herniated discs was the destructive decisions that another driver made behind the wheel of their vehicle. After a few years of soul-searching and hours of thinking, I realized that my soul purpose is traffic safety education. I thank the Mrs. New York America staff for helping me realize that! It has been the most amazing, most fulfilling journey in my life.
It makes the 4 years of speech therapy, occupational therapy, balance/coordination therapy, vision therapy, auditory therapy, physical therapy and so on all worth it.
God has surely blessed my father and I. God has a plan and a purpose for my life.....I thank him everyday for the miracles in my life!

My job with Motorcraft over the last 3 days has been wonderful. I met people from all over the world. It's nothing but fabulous...Doug does not mind it either because he gets to travel with me as well.
The weather here is gorgeous.....only problem is that our family and friends back home continue to remind us of the beautiful weather we are missing out on. Who knew, that when we boarded the plane, we'd be leaving behind 75 degree days!!!
When we return it'll probably be snowing..LOL...
Well, all is good, just a bit of over stimulation and a sore jaw from smiling all day!
I will try and post as much as possible through our travels. Oh yeah, we got to meet Denny Hamlin yesterday as well!!
Love from us both - Jen & Doug

I also had the opportunity to meet and speak with Bob Tasca III. He is the Shelby Mustang Nitro Funny Car Driver for Motorcraft (Ford). He was the most down to earth and outgoing driver I have met! What an honor it was.
