I've made a new rule for myself. I've decided that, whenever I'm on SP site, I have to use my thighmaster. Sitting here right now with my thighs starting to hurt. Ouch. So, the longer I'm here, the more these thighs will burn. See how it g... Read more

My New Walking Poles

Tuesday, September 13, 2011      11 comments

For the past year or so, I've been looking at walking poles online and pricing them. Last year on SP, I posted a blog asking if anyone uses them when they walk and only a couple responded yes. In my own neighborhood, I've only seen one p... Read more

Monday, August 01, 2011      6 comments

I have been wondering why I don't have the energy level I expect, and thought it was due to not having caffeine for the past three months. I'm healthy, eat well, exercise, etc. Then I read (more like scanned) an article about Electromagnet... Read more

I had to smile this morning, as I came out of the grocery store and saw yet another shopper entering in her pj's. This has become more common than you'd imagine. It lead me to wonder if anyone else lives in a town where this happens. Ther... Read more
