Travel is Fatal to Prejudice, Bigotry and Narrow-mindedness � Mark Twain

My husband and I love to travel. We have done quite a lot in Europe, China, Thailand and the Caribbean. We love to watch the travel shows on TV. You learn so much from traveling and it truly broadens your horizons. One thing I have learned is that people are people- all basically the same--all over the world!

My Goals:
I would like to take charge of my weight and get healthy. I hate to exercise, but at my age it becomes a necessity, not a choice unless I want to deal with the alternative.

My Program:
I am staying within my calorie goals and eating healthier- working on more veggies. My downfall is not exercising. I am working on this, making slow progress.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in northern Illinois. My husband and I have been married 47 years and have 2 sons. We have one grandson who is the joy of our life right now. Effie Annie is our "dogter".

I am a nurse on the brink of retirement. Just having a hard time making the big decision.

HAPPY BELATED HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.
I am proud of myself to stay so happy in our marriages.

I feel certain you are too. It just feels GREAT!

I went to buy the Valerian capsules and the last pharmacist told m Ed shed tried it and she said she never tasted anything so disgusting.

I tried a caramel but it was awful so I will have to find a chamomile teabags and I will brew it and use lemon off orange juice at first.
THANKS for the suggestion HUGS Pat in Maine.

I did go early to bed but the birds woke me up. I always wide awake and ready for the day. I did try to go back to sleep but it is boring.
We are off to buy VALERIAN ROOT. HUGS and many thanks Pat in Maine.

HI we planned to look for another computer but after my procedure it was over 60 miles and I was not up to it.

I was told to take it easy today and found a solution on a geek website and a mother was trying to fix her daughters computer. I followed what I needed to make SURFACE RT is working again.
Many people applauded her and told the GEEKS they were not up to her solution-she sounded young.

For me her Solution was fail safe to that problem. emoticon

I was able to talk to my friends. I have to cut and paste and print in big print so it took a while but I followed her menu and it worked first time.
More travels this summer ???
Thanks Pat in Maine. I appreciate you support((((HUGS))))))

Thanks for dropping by and reading my blog. There are still a few wildflowers in the hills. I saw more Prickly Poppies today. Good news!

Glad you liked the blog! It is only 10 miles south of Crystal River. We bought a year pass for the parks and we can go to the Wildlife park as much as we want. Otherwise it costs $13 a person to go in. hope you get a chance to see it one day. Hope you & your husband are doing good! emoticon
