I think it's time to cut back a bit and reclaim my time. I've been on the leaderboards for a long time, and now have to get other things done. Of course, I'll still be participating, but not as much as I have. Wishing all a good day.... Read more

Where's Yoovie? Missed Her By 4 Minutes When She Posted That She Was Leaving.

Tuesday, January 10, 2012      6 comments

I would have told her that it isn't only about losing weight that keeps people here on the SP site. That, just because she hit a plateau, didn't mean she wasn't worthy of her votes as motivator. During my three years here, I've seen people pop... Read more

Could This Be True? They Changed Cookie Monster's Name?

Sunday, January 08, 2012      7 comments

I heard the other day that Sesame Street changed Cookie Monster's name to Veggie Monster. Now, if that's true, it's too bad that we can't even enjoy him singing, "C is for cookie, it's good enough for me" anymore. He was lovable. C'mon, Sesam... Read more

Reflections Upon Three-Year SParkversary

Thursday, January 05, 2012      6 comments

This month marks three years on SP and I have to say that I've given back as much as possible. Bought products, brought in new members, spread the word, etc. So, with that said, I feel a lot of gratitude. As I read newbie blogs and smile... Read more
