Mimic

Wednesday, November 18, 2009      4 comments

Ever since I was a child, I have mimicked people. If they have an accent, I try to copy it. If I'm walking behind them and they walk differently, I find myself copying their walk. If they have a facial tic or say a word with a funny mouth sha... Read more

Politically incorrect

Tuesday, November 17, 2009      3 comments

This is a touchy subject--but it's funny too. I live in the central valley of California. Our biggest business is agriculture and we supply the world with food. That's what we do. There are some foods that would be scarce without us. Anyway... Read more

Blogging full time

Monday, November 16, 2009      5 comments

How do they do it? How do bloggers and newspaper columnists keep the words coming. I love to write. I was a journalism major in college. However, coming up with constant new ideas is hard. I ask other people for help with topics and then pu... Read more

Mountains

Sunday, November 15, 2009      3 comments

Went to the mountains with a daughter and 2 grandbabies (not hers). Had a good time. It was sunshiney and cold. Had a good fire going. The babies had fun running around the sand on the beach and then up higher in the snow. We had to leave e... Read more

TiVo

Friday, November 13, 2009      4 comments

I have never been much of a t.v. or movie viewer. I prefer reading. However, our direct t.v. or something is able to record programs we don't have time to watch. So I've started recording programs and watching them while exercising. It makes... Read more

Made up Words

Thursday, November 12, 2009      2 comments

I was reading an ad last night and it said that a puppy had a ginormous appetite. That got me to thinking about other made-up words. We have several in our family. One is ignoramous as in, he's an ignoramous because he can't remember his addr... Read more

What is Petite?

Wednesday, November 11, 2009      8 comments

My husband makes a habit of looking over all the bills with a fine-toothed comb. I'm always buying things for the kids and grandkids and he wants to know what, when, where, how, etc. He saw a charge for the petite section and said, "Who was th... Read more

Mothers and Dieting

Tuesday, November 10, 2009      1 comments

I just read a blog on SP about the image we have of our body and how it's affected by our mothers' dieting. My mom never dieted. She was probably wearing a 14 or 16, but her self esteem was terrific. If someone commented on a dress she was we... Read more

Consult a Doctor

Monday, November 09, 2009      2 comments

This is a disclaimer: don't try this at home kids! I get a kick out of diets saying, consult your doctor before trying this diet. What's he going to say? It's about time you got off your fat butt?! My doctor has recommended every diet unde... Read more

Mondays are Good for Something

Monday, November 09, 2009      4 comments

There is one thing I like about Mondays. I do strength and stretching on Mon., Wed., and Fri. After two days off for the weekends, my body feels good stretching on Monday. I don't always like doing the exercises on Fri., but Mondays feel good... Read more

Treadmills

Sunday, November 08, 2009      2 comments

My DD and DGS and I went to look at treadmills today. We saw a lot of different kind and got some names so now we have to research them. I'm not sure my DH will spring for one. I've always had difficulty with them because if I'm at home, I ca... Read more

Why write a Blog?

Friday, November 06, 2009      3 comments

On the mornings I can't think of a Blog, I ask my grandson for ideas. We have a three mile trip to his bus stop and then sometimes a small wait. Today he asked me why I write a Blog. I told him it was sort of a diary where we can express our ... Read more

No Insurance

Thursday, November 05, 2009      3 comments

My grandson was listening to the radio while we waited for his bus. He said, "I know a way to save on car insurance! Forget Geico." I asked him how and he said to buy and ride a bike. Of course he was kidding, but isn't that the SP way of li... Read more

First time user

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      6 comments

No, I don't mean drugs. Shame on you for thinking that! I walked on a treadmill for the first time and got in a 30 min. workout. I'm taking care of my DS's dogs while he's on vacation and I'm using his computer and his exercise equipment. He... Read more

Arthritis

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      5 comments

I really thought having arthritis was to lead a life of pain. I know I was in pain for many many years. I have had knee replacement and while that does take the pain away, it still means sore and swollen knees at times. I was always told to e... Read more
