The end of wasting time online

Saturday, November 05, 2011      1 comments

I just spent the last hour writing a very long post in my Facebook account describing how I've been addicted to FB and games on FB. I've also cancelled my subscription to Netflix. These two simple acts will give me several hours more time per da... Read more

A prayer for the food addict

Monday, July 25, 2011      4 comments

Dear God, Help me to be a better person. I know what the right decisions are, but am too weak to make them. I fall back to my bad eating habits. God, help me to make those decisions. Give me the courage to try the foods that I do not like. Giv... Read more

My Aunt Sibby is the only reamaining blood relative on my mother's side of the family. After my mom died, when I was five, my aunt took to raising me. I still lived with my dad, but I saw her almost everyday. I used to write her letters. Lately,... Read more

300m Intermediate Hurdles - demotivation detox

Saturday, February 20, 2010      0 comments

When I was in high school I used to run track. Its hard to imagine it today when you see my pictures (No I didn't throw shotput). There actually was a time in my life when I felt healthy. A time when I could get up at 5:30 in the morning and run... Read more

Ash Wednesday...Give it up for Lent

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      4 comments

We had a small service at my church tonight for Ash Wednesday. Yep, got my ash cross flyin'. Anyway, I've never really observed Lent before, but tonight it was explained in a way that I could relate. It is about giving up something that you... Read more

Need I say anymore?? I've gotta be around for them. See them grow. Wipe their tears. Fix their boo-boos. Teach them everything I know. Send them to college. Watch them graduat... Read more

Haven't been around for awhile...

Friday, February 12, 2010      3 comments

I took a trip to San Francisco several weeks ago. I did not have a laptop or easy access to a PC. So what happened? Probably the same thing that happens to all of us who are away from our technological safety blankets...I lost touch with my spar... Read more

Sodium to Calorie ratio

Saturday, January 16, 2010      2 comments

For many of us, sodium is a REAL problem. Eating the stuff just makes us more thirsty, allowing us to eat more stuff, to drink more stuff, etc. Then we bloat and hang on to (literally) tons of water weight. Simply cutting out the salt is sometim... Read more

A Lightbulb in a Closet

Thursday, January 14, 2010      3 comments

Tonight I hung a lightbulb in a closet. I've been living in this house for over a year now and finally got around to it. You might say, "Woohoo!" You might say, "So what? Who needs a lightbulb in a closet." I guess it all depends on your point o... Read more

Tuesday, January 12, 2010      4 comments

Ok, so everybody's had a sleepless night. I had one last night, but it took a little twist (none too enjoyable either). I was sleeping, but then my wife rolled over and told me she couldn't sleep. So I sat up scratching her back trying to calm h... Read more

I got upset and embarrassed tonight

Sunday, January 10, 2010      6 comments

If you know anything about Japanese tradition, then you might know a little something about the bathhouse. Bathhouses were like the community meeting place. Everybody went to the bathhouse. Everybody knew everybody. That was many years ago... ... Read more

Reading the Spark

Saturday, January 09, 2010      2 comments

I've been reading the book over the past two days. Its amazing how even though all of the stuff in the book is right there on the website, having it consolidated and organized right in front of me is somehow making it speak more to me. I've been... Read more

The last blog of the year

Thursday, December 31, 2009      2 comments

Well, maybe. Somebody else might get one in after me. That's ok though. I just wanted to wish everybody a happy fresh new day. That's all it is. Just another day. Sure, we'll have to remember to sign the checks 2010, but we all are still on the ... Read more
