Sunday, December 14, 2008      2 comments

I fell on the sidewalk during one of my walks this week and yes, it hurt but the worst part about falling (IMHO) is trying to get back up again since I can't use my knees because of the RA. But, I fell by a van and I used the tire on the van to... Read more

Massage & Reward Update

Thursday, December 04, 2008      2 comments

I had my massage on Monday night and it was both soothing and painful. I didn't really warm to the masseuse. She was okay but not someone I felt comfortable with. And, I kind of hated her place of business. It was very loud and busy - not at... Read more

A couple of questions for my American friends...

Saturday, November 08, 2008      2 comments

Of course, you don't have to answer but I am curious. You just elected your first African-American President and I, for one, think it's about time! Who did YOU vote for and why? I was just wondering if anyone voted for Obama partl... Read more
