A Day Of Honor for Those Who Gave All
This is one of the "holidays" that I treasure most. Because it really honors our heroes who gave all they had to give to keep us free.

Starting A Second Year On Sparkpeople
This past year has been a very rewarding journey. Over the years, I have tried every diet know to modern man, and have never, ever stuck with it for a year. It takes time to remove from your frame the fat that gathers over years of neglecting ... Read more
A Must Each Day!
There is no way I can depend on my memory to keep my accountable. If I don't track, I can count on having too many calories and gaining.
