What's on the Menu?
Mom is 91. Mom lives in a retirement home. Mom’s senility is increasing,
ergo reasoning with her is becoming more difficult. The other week she
assured me that she had NEVER done laundry in her residence. She’s lived
there over a dozen ... Read more
Is Anyone on Duty?
Two days ago I signed into my email account, only to see a lone email that I had left unopened. It was for a reply to a message board post. Nothing else from Spark People was there--not a daily exercise, no weekly Spark, not a recipe--nothing. A... Read more
At our old house we had a number of groundhogs that were in the backyard, continually nibbling on anything... Read more
A Working Walk
This morning I had a working walk at the golf course across the street. If I go out early enough, the gro... Read more
I have a Spark Diamond in the Clouds.
Wow! To have reached one hundred fifty thousand points and Level 21 has taken around nine years. I wonder how many hours I've spent in front of a screen to earn those. Thankfully, some of those hours were spent exercising with videos. I've learn... Read more
I was talking with a friend of mine today, who also suffers from tinnitus. She said certain foods make the ringing in her ears worse--things like caffeinated drinks and chocolate. Hmmm. I'll have to research this one. I also heard that drynes... Read more
Trying to Catch Up
At the beginning of April, we switched cable providers. For over three weeks I couldn't get the wi-fi to work on my PC. Every other computer, phone, and tablet connected automatically. I was forced to use my phone or tablet to sign into Spark... Read more
Nice round numbers

Are You Willing?
Margaret Clarkson was a teacher, who was unable to travel to the mission fields as desired because of a physical disability. She wrote a poem, "So Send I You," which was set to music. Later she realized that poem listed only the sacrifices one... Read more
I Knew I Was Getting Close
A couple weeks ago, I noticed the number of days in my log-in streak was nearing 500; but what a surprise to open my "trophy" email this morning. Five hundred days of logging into the Spark People web site! I haven't seen my goal weight nearin... Read more
Pranked by Panera
DH has a Panera Bread rewards card. When I go there, I give them his phone number and he racks up rewards from my visits, too. Two rewards were nearing expiration, so he told me to order and use the $5 off reward. I went online and, not havin... Read more
A year to 401
A 401K? No. 401 pounds? No. Four hundred and one (sounds a little like a dalmatian movie) times in a row logging in to Spark People. I was patting myself on the back, having reached the one-year mark, but this morning I opened my emails to fi... Read more
If It Weren't Leap Year...
I would have logged in for an entire year. As it is, I think I'll manage to get that 366th log in done tomorrow. ... Read more
This poem by Fanny J. Crosby, one of the most prolific writers of hymn lyrics of all time, was her "heart song." She was inspired by a tract in which the preacher wrote: "If each of us is faithful to the grace which is given us by Christ, that ... Read more
