Why does SP suggest we find a board of other like ourselves and post often?

Friday, March 28, 2008      6 comments

There reaches a time when old friends grow apart. It took a long time for me to reach the decision to completely sever the ties with these old friends. It was not an easy decision for me. Today, I decided the time had come. Goodbye to those ... Read more

Boring menus!

I have been trying to figure out why I put on so much weight since I retired. DH and I are both active, but the pounds just kept piling on. Thanks to a Spark Friend, Dooderqueen, I checked out "You on a Diet - The Owner's Manual for Waist Man... Read more
