This is what's on my mind dimmit! Let's cut funding to DCNR and DEP, who needs them? Our children's children won't have to pay to protect our environment today. besides they will need all their money to move far away from Penn's Wasteland.

I complain about not being able to get spark points for log-in. I'm so shallow that I need the free points for motivation to lose weight, get my blood sugar under control and generally live a higher quality life.
I complain about not being able to track my food eaten. Actually, this is probably a legitimate complaint, every time I try to get a whole day logged in, somewhere during the process, I hit the report button and then I can't add any more food. The link just goes dead. I have to log out and back in again. Frustrating.
I complain about, well, nothing else right now.
To count my blessings, I have met wonderful people here. From Tracey, who gives voice to what I think; to my new friends on the 'Turtle' team, who share my concerns about my blood sugar and offer advice that I can actually take.
Over all it's more than just a wash, I'd stay just for the people, but I'll take the quality of life improvements as well.

Today is Sunday it's Father's Day. I work Saturdays during the summer so today is the first day of my weekend. Today I'm traveling 1/2 way to Harrisburg (mooville for those in the know) to meet 2 Spark Friends. I'm pretty excited. I hope they're not stalkers. ROFL I can't stop myself sometimes. That last statement is so ridiculous I may delete it. I hope my wife goes with me, but she probably won't. My wife is a wonderful beautiful, witty, personable woman who everyone likes, but her. [sic] I just learned how to use that sic thing, probably used it wrong. [sic] Anyway I'm blessed and stoked.
Tomorrow, YaY! Summer solstice. Sun, Fun, Bon Fires, Naked Dancing, Animal Sacrifices --- there I go again. Disregard every thing after Fun. It is my favorite annual celestial event. The longest day of the year, the culmination of Spring's efforts. Last year was cool and rainy, the tomato plants had some sort of blight and it had me out of sorts. This year is the polar opposite above average temps, actual tomatoes and peppers forming on the vines already and I am all in sorts. [sic]
Tuesday, it's my birthday and I've lived one more year longer than I thought I would when I was in my twenties. I'm not going into quality of life v length of life, the whole idea here as I get it is to maintain a high quality of life while doing those things that lead to good health and a longer life. It's my birthday! Baby back ribs dry rubbed and put into the smoker in the morning. Turning a head of cabbage into cole-slaw and making some jasmine rice to top off the meal. I will not eat much rice. It's a good thing.
Here's wishing everyone who read this "Happy 3 day weekend" and "Happy Birthday" to you. [sic]

I was just listening to Shep Smith, his hair is on fire about the Oil Spill. If I think about the impact of this thing, it makes me want to cry. This abomination caused by greed and criminal disregard for safety will eventually destroy the gulf coast. Not just the innocent animals that live there, but everything. Once the animals are gone, once the plant life is destroyed what will be left for the human inhabitants? Fishing? no, Tourism? no, Transportation? no, the gulf coast will resemble some post-apocalyptic movie. Ironically the only commerce in the gulf of Mexico to survive this will be the greedy godless amoral criminal oil industry.
What is most frustrating is that I can do nothing about all this. I am willing to shoulder my share of the responsibility for the nation's dependence on oil. But, what choice do I have? Only the wealthy can afford the truly paradigm shifting vehicles, because the car companies will not produce them in sufficient numbers to make any difference.
I will be dead before the Gulf Coast returns to normal. I fear no one alive today will see the Gulf coast again as it was in March 2010.

I've been going through entries on SP and answering comments and the like. I've been at it for about 1/2 hour. I still haven't put in my nutrition info for last night and this morning yet. then on to Facebook, and then Ancestry dot com. work work work.
I have returned to SP for several different reasons, I didn't really leave, but I didn't pay as much attention as I should have. but regardless of the reasons, the people here are very nice. It's refreshing (my new word) how everyone seems so "up".
I appreciate it, I'm slightly manic about my activities so I cannot guarantee I will not stray again, but I'm back for now and enjoying my friends and acquaintances.
Love ya SP
