Monday, September 19, 2011      8 comments

I don't know what I'm doing, so I also ordered a book to go with it. Researched models and got a good one at a low price so that it won't be wasted if I wind up not using it. But I've wanted to try for a long time now, and that movie I men... Read more

When I recently went back for some acupuncture treatments, I smiled when the graduating acupuncture practitioner/student asked that question. "Sure, as long as I get the proceeds if you use it in an ad campaign," I joked. Seriously, they t... 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
