We survived Sandy! We did end up getting over 8" of rain, as forecasted, but we were spared the really bad winds that folks in NJ, PA, and NY got -- peak wind gust was around 60 mph. For those of you who are professional or amateur meteorologi... Read more
Sandy has made her presence felt last evening and into this morning. Over 3" of rain so far, with the forecast of up to 8" possible. Amazingly enough, that amount of rain would still not get us back to "normal" for the year -- we are close to ... Read more

A few things that have happened in the past few days will keep me motivated to continue pushing to better health:
- Weight: 181.6 at home, scale at the Dr office was 182, pretty much splitting hairs. Goal is 179. I do like the scale ay m... Read more
I'm sure I'm speaking for LOTS of SP'ers, but I sure do love a good weigh-in!!
Today's weigh-in: 181.6!! Nearly a 3 pound loss since my last weigh-in, and more importantly, that puts me 2.6 pounds away from my goal weight of 179! The "ma... Read more
Feeling much better today...
Not sure exactly what it was, but definitely felt out of sorts yesterday (Sunday). Was clearly sore from mowing on Saturday (did all of the back yard, which is close to an acre), was not thrilled with the colder air that moved in, and in spite ... Read more
Why is it not good to skip a meal!
Yesterday (Friday) was one of those crazy good days...worked in the AM, then as soon as I finished a conference call at noon, we packed the dogs in the minivan and headed to the beach. We were in such a rush that I forgot to get some lunch, whi... Read more
"Greyhounds Reach The Beach" weekend
One of the events my DW and I look forward to is "Greyhounds Reach The Beach", which is centered in Dewey Beach, DE, with plenty of activities in Rehoboth Beach as well. Dewey is 45 minutes away, so an easy drive down. Our 3 greyhounds know "s... Read more
Time to celebrate! One year "Bandaversary"
I know for me time seems to be flying in general, but I think the past 366 days since I had my WLS moved at warp speed!!
I could on and on about all the positive changes that have occurred, but I'll spare those of you who are reading thi... Read more
So the good news was that my youngest daughter was back home and came to visit my DW and I Saturday evening and Sunday. The bad news was that it made for a VERY BUSY Sunday for me:

- Drove to beach (45 minutes away) to... Read more
Got home from our trip to W VA yesterday, in-laws in tow, around 2:30PM. Got them on the road and had planned to have a low-key, put up your feet kind of afternoon. Ah, but the weather gods had other plans. Around 3:30PM, it got VERY dark, an... Read more
It's GREAT to have the windows open (FINALLY!)
OK, so maybe for one day before the heat moves back in, but it is GREAT to have the windows open and enjoy the cool outdoor air! I think it has been at least a month since we last had them open!
Well, back to work...just wanted to share.... Read more
Updated Score: Me = 1, fajitas = 1 (but I really am winning!)
OK, you are probably wondering about this blog and what it is all about. I'll try to keep this as "ungross" as possible....
Rewind to last Wednesday. My DW and I decided we wanted Mexican food for dinner, so we went to one of our favorite... Read more
More fun clothes shopping....
Stopped at one our local department stores this morning after breakfast (for those of you in PA/NJ/DE/MD, it was Boscovs), as I had two goals to accomplish:
1) Get a new wedding band (I'll explain in a minute)
2) Get some new jeans for ... Read more
