The truth hurts
8 am. I woke up at 6 am and now I am still at the computer. Mostly fiddling with Spark.com!!! Sort of like the father who builds a play house for his son, spending all this time doing this instead of actually being with his son. In truth, more ... Read more

Without the em... Read more
Don't be afraid of the iPhone!!
The iPhone is not like other more complicated smart phones. It is amazingly simple to learn to use. I admit I also took a class to get started with it. I have it coordinated with my desktop computer, so I c... Read more
I can't help raving about the iPhone and how it has enriched my life!!! I discovered this "app"
called "Fooducate". You can put your iPhone in front of a bar code on a food item, and it reads it and then tells you about the item!!! I gives i... Read more

Well, on further, detailed reading, I saw various errors I was making. For example today it says 2 pieces whole wheat... Read more
Well, this was my calorie count for yesterday. But on the positive side, at least I KNOW.
Am going to plan my meals again, today. Spark's meal plans are heavy on fruits and vegetables, which is good. If I can do just breakfast and lunch... Read more
