    Great blog! Your pictures with Mom and sister show a great looking young woman having a grand time. Mom certainly has aged well. The cake is awesome. What a clever way to decorate. Your pics of the countryside are lovely, especially the sun on the water on your way home. The hotel looks quite nice. Did you tackle the slide into the pool?

Computers....

Monday, October 12, 2009



.. Since this is my last day using this computer................. I thought I should post a blog........ and see what computers mean to some of us........ With my new one........... I will have to upload new pictures............. and my Spark page gallery............ will have to be all done again........... with all new pictures.......... I could transfer them............ but I think all new stuff might be neat........ I will have to find all my favorites again etc...
.

It's funny how much computers have changed............ and updated to newer things........ and always updating.......... but I couldn't live without mine........... It's my window to the world........ and without it............... I would have never found Sparks.......... or met all you wonderful friends........


You never know............. all these pictures are jokes............. but within time........... We maybe doing some of this on our computers............ Lol... Tomorrow is the big day for me.......... and I can't wait............... I hope we have no problems hooking it up............... But when it comes to computers............. you can't live with them.................... and you can't live without them...

    How cute! I hope all goes well! I am the administrator for about 10 computers, so when one goes down, I get to back up / save / restore / load / set up / etc. It's often a pain, but can be really great when it works! You are so right - "you can't live with them and you can't live without them"...but either way, they sure make living interesting!!

    My laptop is the window to my world also. although I keep most of my pics, ect on those little thingies. the name escapes me now. U plug it into your usb port, transfer pics, files, ect over to it and then plug it into your new computer and transfer it over. It's really simple. time consuming but simple. they've even got portable hard drives now. take your hard drive with you and use it on any computer---it's not much bigger than a book.. I think they're several hundred dollars though (I think). I've never really researched it because I don't really need it. I don't depend on my computer THAT much!

I don't do a lot of shopping online but if I can't find it IRL, I will go running around online to see if I can locate the item. About the only thing I won't buy online is shoes. I have such bad feet. it usually takes me days to find a pair of shoes I can wear.

I do read alot of newsletters in email. Just about every woman's magazine, cooking, baking, scrapbooking, card making, news, entertainment, quilting, disablity, eating issues, ,...u name it, if they have a newsletter I probably belong on the list.

At one point I belonged to probably 10 yahoo crochet groups. I've got it down to 2 groups now. I also belonged to several cooking yahoo groups. Now only 1. I had at one point about 20 groups I belonged to. Now it's only 5. I very seldom posted in any of them so couldn't see remaining a member.

If I allowed myself..I could be online 24/7 and never get bored. Never need the outside world nor miss it!

However, now with the new CDD dx, I have to limit my online time. I dread the day when I won't be able to get online at all because of my cervical spine.

Good luck with the new computer!

Spark Friends..

Monday, August 10, 2009



I was just sitting here thinking............. I have now been with Sparks for one year and four months............ When I first started this journey.............. I had no idea what to expect........ I had never really used a computer before this........... and didn't know anything about different sites........... I am so happy I found this one in my travels............ while I was looking for recipes...

Anyways.......... I was in the wheelchair back then........ and my son brought home this computer........... told me to get going.......... So while I waited for it to get hooked up to the internet.......... I sent him to the library to pick up beginners in typing.......... and learnt to type........

So here I am now......... I have learnt so much from this site......... and have found so many good people.......... and caring friends......... And finally............ I am letting you know the real me......... and so far............ very good............ No matter who or what I am............ my friends have stayed with me through thick and thin.............

Thank you................ thank you.............. For excepting me .... the real me......... emoticon emoticon

You have summarized so well what I have found to be true of members of this site.
I have never been one to chat etc. and also discovered Spark looking for recipes. What I have found is so much more. I have found acceptance and understanding from individuals, like myself seeking to improve my health and quality of life. Few, unless pursuing such goals truly understand. I have found that the longer my journey has continued the more suuport I need. I have found the right place.
I wish you the very best as you continue your journey to health.

Never Give Up....

Monday, July 06, 2009



I have been with Sparks little over a year now.................. and I have gone through gaining......... losing............. gaining............ losing............. This happened to me in the past............ and I gave up............ I just could not stick with eating healthy............... and staying away from bad foods..

I have done many different things since I have been here............. and one of them........... has been to...... "not give up"............. I have now learnt to eat right............... and I know when to stop............So now I look at things differently............... I may not be losing right now............... But I am eating healthier............ and feeling better about myself............. I think I have come along ways..................... emoticon

    I think we all have gone (are going) through this cycle. It's such a hard thing to give up eating the foods we love! The only thing that works for me is keeping at it until my taste changes -- and it does eventually. I'm encouraged that lately when I've decided to eat something I shouldn't, it doesn't taste very good, generally I don't finish it, and I crave something fresh to eat instead. I'm sure hoping that works as well for me as giving up sugar in my drinks did years ago. To this day I can't drink anything sweet, it just gags me. Hopefully I'll get to that exalted state with sweet carbs, which are my biggest downfall.

Happy Saturday! and thanks for the SparkGoodie!

You are a good friend and I wish you all the luck in the world to meet your goal! emoticon emoticon

Just Thinking...

Sunday, June 28, 2009



I was sitting here trying to think of what I could make my blog about this week............ And as I sat here thinking................... I realized that here I am again sitting on my computer........... alone in the house............ We all have a world outside of SP................ But mine............ I found is always alone.............. Now that doesn't really bother me................ this site and everyone friend I have met here........... Are my life line........... So now it's time I do as the pictures says............... Get out there and live................. love............ and laugh.............. So who's with me??................ Let's get out there and do what we can do TODAY............. Tomorrow may never come............ And thanks to all of you that I chat with daily............... Don't know what I would do without my trusted computer.......
