Saturday, March 23, 2013      0 comments

Enough with the ads!

Tuesday, October 23, 2012      3 comments

I understand that ads keep Spark free. And I actually don't mind them, in their place. I have followed a few, joined a couple and it's possible I bought something as a result of one. I don't recall which purchases are a result of which sites. ... Read more

I love metaphors!

Wednesday, July 25, 2012      3 comments

Okay, so I'm an English major once and forever; so be it. However I was musing on the treadmill this morning (on a slow interval) and I realized that my new eating habits and my new running habits serve as a metaphor for each other. In t... Read more

Thursday, March 08, 2012      4 comments

For any of you who haven't been reading my blogs long enough to know, I will tell you straight up: I'm a little off-centre in my thought processes. Okay disclaimer out of the way, I will tell you what weird thoughts go around my mind lately. ... Read more

I love quotable quotes!

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      4 comments

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run. ... Read more

Just got back from my run on the treadmill at the clubhouse and wow! I did my 1.5 mile time test (it's a cardio measurement test) and I did it in 15 minutes 45 seconds. I looked it up and that puts me somewhere in the 80th to 90th percentile f... Read more

Fallout from Facebook and Privacy etc

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      0 comments

Well the Facebook tempest in a teapot is over and things are back to normal---NOT!!! The frustration is going to linger a long long time, I foresee. LMB100 apparently posted a very interesting blog title, it would seem. On my friend feed,... Read more

Facebook et al

Thursday, January 26, 2012      2 comments

Well, it seems that FB and Spark is now a non-issue. I was one of the soapboxers and realized when I read an article about Timeline that I could just go to the source. So I am now no longer on Facebook. I might even (gasp!) have to resort to ... Read more
