As we celebrate Memorial Day, remembering all those who have died in service of our country, it's important to also recognize our family and friends from Peoria and Peoria County who have also died in defense of liberty and the American flag. Here is a link, for example, to a website that recounts all the soldiers from Peoria County who had fought in the Civil War.
And to all veterans, especially those who have been served by Johnson Family Chiropractic, we say a very heartfelt "Thank you" and wish you a happy and peaceful Memorial Day.
I'm sure that when most parents are taking their children to see the animated movie "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" from Dreamworks, they aren't expecting to see the talented dog Mr. Peabody perform a chiropractic adjustment.
In the film, a character voiced by Stephen Colbert (the host of "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central) hurts his back simply by standing up from a chair. Mr. Peabody, who is famous from the original "Rocky & Bullwinkle" cartoons for being able to do just about anything, rushes to the rescue. Mr. Peabody proclaims that he is a licensed chiropractor and proceeds to perform a chiropractic adjustment. Although it would have been spectacular to see the patient actually declare his consent for this chiropractic adjustment, we have to make allowances for movies.
Mr. Peabody understands that chiropractic is useful, has mastered his particular chiropractic technique, and underscores the importance of being licensed. In fact, we should probably call him Dr. Peabody.
And, finally, Stephen Colbert's character expresses how delighted he is that a licensed chiropractor came to the rescue. Here's the clip from Youtube:
Although there's already plenty of the white stuff on the ground in Peoria (the last storm brought in over 7 inches!), the local meteorologists are calling for Winter Storm Nika to bring another wave of snow to the Peoria and Central Illinois area beginning Tuesday afternoon.
Since the recent forecasts were right on the money regarding the last snowstorm, it is wise to assume that the next winter storm will also produce poor driving conditions.
In an effort to be proactive, Johnson Family Chiropractic will close on Tuesday at 1 PM and remain closed on Wednesday. The office will then reopen with special Thursday hours on February 6, from 9 AM to 6 PM.
Stay warm, stay safe, and get ready for another round of snow, Peoria!
