I haven't wanted to do anything at all for the past several weeks. But I'm not going to let it keep me down. <BR> <BR> My landlord finally had new railings installed on my front porch. It's been an issue for years. It became a matter for action because my neighbor had a stroke last fall. I also have a problem getting up & down the stairs. There are only 3 of them, but they're very steep & shallow. There is barely enough room to put your foot on them. ... Thu, 7 Feb 2013 16:52:45 EST It's a wonderful life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5222058 Well, I finally have my tv & internet back. Boy! Am I glad. I've been having some issues with my computer (it was really slow), but it seems to be better. I did a 'Disk Cleanup' & that seemed to help a lot. <BR> <BR> My best friend (Jada) is busy throwing things around. A little while ago she managed to turn the TV off. She must have stepped on the remote. Life is never dull with her around. <BR> <BR> I'm finding it much, much easier doing my email on my computer instead of my phone ... Thu, 24 Jan 2013 18:47:15 EST Great News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5210313 Yesterday I got rid of my car. I am getting my cable back on Friday! Yeah!!!! This means that I can spend more time on Spark. I will also be able to add pictures & stuff. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone!!! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>244</em> <em>244</em> <em>247</em> <em>247</em> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 16:24:11 EST Another Good Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5206885 It's a warm (for January) & sunny day today. <BR> <BR> My sister came up yesterday & gave me the new camera that she bought me. It's a Nikon Coolpix camera & it takes great pictures. Now I'll be able to put pictures on here. At least when I get my internet back. Hopefully I'll have that back this week. <BR> <BR> I started to clean my car out & discovered that the interior is soaked. I knew that the doors leaked, but not everywhere. <BR> <BR> I'm going to stop here. My time on this ... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 14:38:16 EST Good News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5202349 i called an auto salvage yard (formerly known as junk yards) about getting rid of my car. They told me that they would give me $325.00 (including pickup) for it. <em>244</em> Now I'll be able to get my cable back. That means that I'll have both my TV & internet back. <BR> <BR> My landlord is finally going to put up new railings on the front porch & my back porch. It's about time! He's also going to fix the sidewalk in front of our house. <BR> <BR> The weather is kind of rainy h... Fri, 11 Jan 2013 15:03:43 EST A new day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5199027 It''s a rather nasty day today (outside). When I walked my dog, it started raining lightly. <BR> <BR> I walked over to the town hall & got Jada's dog license. The cost went up to $18.00 for unneutered/unspayed dogs. <BR> <BR> I went to see my doctor on Monday about my diabetes meds. I've been taking Janumet for years, but lately I was getting very nauseous whenever I took it. So he put me on a new drug. I hope it works & doesn't make me sick. Incidentally, Janumet is a combination o... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 15:25:03 EST Feeling Good http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5190298 Yesterday, my sister & went looking for Bald Eagles. We went into Pennsylvania & never spotted one. That is not unusual. I learned to identify the Eastern Bluebird. We saw those about 5 miles from my house. This morning I spotted 4 or 5 in my side yard. They're cute (& beautiful). Anyway, Eileen picked me up around 9:15 a.m. & I didn't get home until around 4:00 p.m. A long day; especially when you haven't slept in 2 days. I slept last night, though. It was a good day. It was a bri... Fri, 4 Jan 2013 15:56:07 EST Bad News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5186574 The Dish Network installer came today to hook me up. He found out that because of my location (physical not address) I wouldn't be able to get satellite because of some very big pine trees next to my driveway. I'm getting my money back anyway. I'll go back to the cable company. I'm supposed to get my internet from Century Link, so I think I'll wait on that one. <BR> <BR> Other than that, I'm doing okay. <BR> <BR> Jada loves the snow. And I discovered how to use my phone to take video... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 16:27:16 EST Good News http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5182407 I'm finally getting my internet connection back (tv, too)!!! I'll be able to spend more time here! I'm really looking forward to it. <BR> <BR> The weather's cold, but clear. We still have snow on the ground. Actually it's mostly frozen snow. <BR> <BR> That's it for now. The place where I'm writing this is very hot. It feels like 90. My glasses are fogging up. <BR> <em>252</em> Mon, 31 Dec 2012 15:01:41 EST Winter http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5173599 Well, it looks like winter is finally here. It's cold out & we had some snow last night. Not enough for my buddy Jada to play in, but that's okay. She'll get her chance. <BR> <BR> I'm feeling great today. <BR> <BR> I took a picture of Jada lying upside down on the bed this morning. Pictures of her are hard to take because she's black & the comforter on my bed is burgandy. Not too much contrast there. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>247</em> Sat, 22 Dec 2012 10:38:01 EST Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5169226 It's a rainy, dreary day. We do need the rain, though. <BR> <BR> My bronchitis is clearing up. <BR> <BR> My dog, Jada, has taken to getting under the blankets & rolling around. A couple of hours ago, she was on the bed & when I looked at her she let me know that she wanted me to put the blanket over her head. So, I did. How could I resist those big brown eyes? She rolled around a bit & then got off the bed. She really brightens my day. <BR> <BR> I'm really looking forward to havi... Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:52:59 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5160239 It rained all day yesterday. It's still threatening. <BR> <BR> I went to my chiropractor yesterday. He told me that's he's retiring. Now I have to find another one & that's going to be hard without a car. He's trying to get someone else to come in for him. <BR> <BR> I feel kind of 'blah' today. It will pass, though. I think it's a combination of the weather, bronchtis & just not feeling well. <BR> <BR> That's it for now. <BR> <BR> I hope that everyone has a great day. <BR> <BR> <B... Sat, 8 Dec 2012 13:32:21 EST Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5158395 It's cold outside today. We're supposed to have more 'normal' weather this winter. Such as more snow (than last winter). I just wish that it would settle down. It would make deciding what to wear a lot easier. <BR> <BR> Jada would love a lot of snow. She was born in Florida & hasn't seen much of it. We had hardly any snow last winter. I love to watch it snow. It's so pretty. <BR> <BR> Have a great day. Whatever is left of it, anyway. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>247</em> Thu, 6 Dec 2012 16:04:56 EST Jada http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5157256 Jada is my dog's name. Jada is a 19 month old (today) black Labrador Retriever. I've had her since January 2012. She's a funny dog. She thinks of all kinds of things to do. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/9/l898581562.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <em>247</em> <em>213</em> Wed, 5 Dec 2012 15:29:53 EST Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5154950 It's nice to be back. I couple of years ago, I was a member with a different name. I don't remember what it was, but I think it was apacheking@ptd.net. That email no longer exists. <BR> <BR> My last dog, Sandy, died at the age of 15 yrs., 3 1/2 months in December of 2011. In January, I was blessed with an 8-month black female Labrador. I found her through the Pet-Finders web-site. I'm thankful every day for her. <BR> <BR> I'm a type2 diabetic, which used to be under control, but a l... Mon, 3 Dec 2012 15:56:27 EST
