There is a great route I take Pooch on, she likes it, I like it, so even though I won't be on the pages here, I won't be out of commission. <BR> Did a new Zumba DVD and just about had my a** kicked.

Now I have cable and a Wii hooked up and don't have much idea of how to straighten these cords back in order. There is a commercial for a Pilates chair on which seems llike it would be wonderful to use every other day along with the Zumba. Money is an issue right now, so I will put ay work into the ZUMBA!
