It was cold on the way to the blood drive today. On the way, we saw double sundogs on either side of the sun. I took some photos and a short video with my phone. They aren't just wonderful (lots of better ones uploaded to Twitter and Instsgram.)... Read more

Before the Super Bowl, we went to the symphony earlier this afternoon (Sunday, so it's Monday now, I'm not in bed because I only now found...ooops don't want to give it away yet...).
Anyway so it was the Cirque de la Symphonie back in Wichi... Read more
I read today's "Dear Abby" and smoke began broiling out of my head. I am pasting in the article. She never seems to point people in the direction of SparkPeople - quite possibly because she doesn't know how SparkPeople could help women duh as th... Read more
I reverted back to baby food today.
Why not!? This stuff was GOOD!
I had been helping a friend move stuff from one part of her house down to her basement. Nevermind why. But I wasn't terribly hungry. I'd had some "Millenniu... Read more

Remember yesterday's blog? Same issue if the paper had ANOTHER fascinating article! (Or else I am easily amused and/or distracted. I think both. Anything to avoid the pain of exercise...).
This article came from the FITBIE.com website - whi... Read more
I was one of the "victims" of the Spark Deal of a "lifetime" subscription to the New Element Yoga website a few years ago. Never could get videos to load up on my phone or iPad, and some of the videos wouldn't even play on my computer. Many had ... Read more

For the past 25 years I have made the following resolution: Each day I

"What's Your Excuse..." etc.
so here's another story, this one about a healthy Australian mom. I think she's a new heroine for me, much more reachable than Maria Kang.
Meet Taryn Brumfitt - see photos of her, airbrushed as well as t... Read more
I read an interesting article on Saturnalia - some of the other holidays I wasn't familiar with.
And after visiting with my mom, I took Java for a walk - or maybe more accurate to s... Read more
Some have asked... and while explaining, I also found an interesting blog from a man who I've never personally met, and his experience mirrors mine so closely it's not funny. It's both a video and the transcript (more or less) following it. He w... Read more
My mom showed me a video on Facebook that was doubly tragic - heavier women at a dress store, talking amongst themselves. I have NO clue what they are actually saying, because of course, Special K (United States) made no effort to have the video... Read more
