Gasland, Part 2 (documentary).
I watched this documentary on Netflix last night and was so bummed-out (and I happened to be over-tired at the time, which didn't help), that I didn't make it to the second half. Honestly, to see what is happening to drinking water supplies in... Read more
Chair Yoga (first class attended)
Yesterday, I was perusing the latest list of library class offerings throughout the county and decided to try one that was nearby (and free), which was Chair Yoga. Figured it couldn't hurt - any movement is good, right?
Well, yes, it was v... Read more
Makers of M&M's Warning About Sugar - I Laughed Out Loud
Talk about hypocrisy, I read that Mars, Inc., the makers of M&M's, has warned about not eating too much sugar. That's like a drug dealer warning his customer not to buy too much cocaine.
I've decided, now that I'm on a roll with weight l... Read more
One More LB Gone, Mother's Day, etc.
My body has been thanking me for getting (and will stay) back on the healthier track that I know will lead me to my goal. I have December as my time frame, which is plenty of time if I continue to do what I should. That includes less cheese, s... Read more

3 More Lbs Down & Thrilled to See Some Rain
Woohoo, another 3 lbs bite the dust! I'm definitely on a roll.
We are in a severe drought and it looks as though we will have drastic consequences in the near future with water rationing. But delighted to see some light rain today. Any... Read more
The Result of Past Month Experiment Hanging, Rather than Dryer, Clothes
About a month ago, I got the bright idea to start hanging my clothes outside and I bought a number of very cool, portable devices that have been terrific to use outside.
Now with one entire billing cycle completed, I received the monthly in... Read more
4 Lbs. Down- Hooray for Me
Looks like I won't be blogging each day in May as I'd planned. Just no time and I don't have daily topics.
A few days ago, I wrote about having weighed in after a long period of time and some weight gain.
Down 4 lbs. since that weig... Read more
Day 3 (of 31 in May?) - Weigh-In, Denial Springs Eternal
I really don't want to face this blog. Telling myself that I won't get upset when I weigh in, I'm trying not to. For accuracy, because my body varies wildly, I have to do the weighing for two more consecutive days. Lucky me. (smiling)

Day 2 (of a possible 31 in May?)-Pools/cesspools? Documentary blues. Impending weigh-in.
Okay, I still intend to join the pool at the Y, and I really don't listen to opinions other than to weigh them from people I find credible. A friend thinks that public pools are not healthy. That there are too many cooties floating in them. M... Read more
Day 1 (of 31 in May?) - B12, Court Stress, Lien Scare, etc.
In honor of my dearly departed cousin's (in black top in SP photo) birthday month, I thought I'd try to blog each day in an attempt to reel myself in and be accountable. I just don't have daily thoughts to blog, but I want to try. I'm rebootin... Read more
I'm going to try to find out further info re yesterday's blog. I agree with Janet that it sounds like a spoof. Will keep you posted as to what I find.... Read more
Yikes! Partnership of Coca-Cola, UCSD, and Monsanto
The following article appeared in the April 16 copy of the San Diego Reader. Yikes! I just read it this morning and thought I'd share.
Just two weeks after The Onion reported that the majority of the planet's uncontaminated water was cont... Read more
Fed Up (documentary)
Found this on Netflix yesterday and what a major bummer. Most of it is common knowledge, but to see it concretely is something else.
Demon sugar is the protagonist and facts that we already know - that sugar is 8 times more addictive tha... Read more
Carpets Cleaned, Stiff towels, Walking Challenge, Holding onto Erroneous Thought
This morning I cleaned carpets; I have a small home so I do them every two months. Plus, my 11 year old cat, Harry, has started leaving his poop on the carpet. So I am vigilant about making sure the place is clean. I've blogged about it befor... Read more
