JUICER ARRIVES TODAY
I tried juicing about a year ago and didn't like it. Had a defective unit and returned it. However, I'm giving it more of a fair chance this time. Reading which combos taste good and why. Bought one with good reviews on Amazon, but not price... Read more
MY 800 CALORIE WATERMELON BREAKFAST
In the not-so-distant past, it was common for me to eat a watermelon a day. During several consecutive days. (not bragging, just saying) For those who haven't heard this song (sparkers who've known me for awhile have heard this tune myriad tim... Read more
Hooray for Curiosity on Mars!
Last night, I watched NASA TV and waited the last 11 minutes with the roomful of JPL people who were barely able to contain their excitement. The 7 Minutes of Terror, as the capsule went through the Mars atmsphere toward touchdown, were indeed ... Read more
Curious About Curiosity on Mars
I am looking forward to watching the Mars landing late Monday night. After viewing the interesting way it was constructed, told by the engineers who did it, I can see why they say they will be holding their breath. Simply amazing stuff.

Even Wgt Bias For Cremation Services
I know this isn't a pleasant topic, but I have to be realistic and plan for final arrangements for myself. After the deaths of so many loved ones in the past few years, I've decided to be proactive so that all details are taken care of and no o... Read more
Wonky Computer Issues w/SP Site
A month or so ago, I wrote about issues of having to log in each time I wanted to get onto this site. I wrote to the help desk and have had no trouble with that since then.
However, now another curious thing is happening to my incoming not... Read more
Vit D, Running Shoes, Raspberry Ketones, Juicer
I finally found running shoes that fit nicely. I've blogged about it recently and appreciate everyone's input. Spent a lot of time trying on different brands/styles. Found New Balance and they are even made in the USA! Wow, I didn't think an... Read more
I was just on my favorite supplement site, ordering my replacement supply, when I happened upon something called raspberry ketones. And many positive reviews from people who've used it as an appetite suppressant. Not a fan of Dr. Oz (I don't w... Read more
Mini Goal - All About Perspective
The concert is on August 26, and from now until then, my mini goal is to lose 5 lbs. Of course, it sounds like a very easy thing to do. For someone whose body insists that it would prefer to plateau, not so easy. However, I will do it. There... Read more
My Skinny Jeans Funny Story
Last year, I bought a $200 pair of jeans marked down to $10 at Marshalls (good ole Marshalls). Even though the tag said they were my size, when I tried to get them on, they wouldn't even get up my leg. I thought they were probably mistagged fr... Read more
Olympics & Another Concert
Some years, I watch Olympics. This year, not a bit interested. One reason could be that I haven't watched TV in about a year and don't even go near the thing. Have no interest in turning it on for any reason. Just doesn't appeal to me.

C'mon... Where Did July Go?
I wind up saying this every month, so it's my own little running joke. But, honestly, I cannot believe how time is flying at lightning speed. July is disappearing faster than ever.
Wishing all a happy day.... Read more
R.I.P. Sally Ride
The first woman in space, but a collegue where I used to work, she was a shining star in life and will probably be wherever she is now.
Sally, you are missed already. Rest in peace.... Read more
I WANNA WALK THE CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
I just discovered this walk and researching it further, including a book I just ordered. There are four different paths of varying lengths, and this is something that I'd really enjoy doing. I think I am going to set it as a long-term goal/rewa... Read more
Running Shoe Dilemma-CONCLUSION
So, the shoes arrived yesterday. This is the last time I buy through the mail. There is a defect (loop for lace is broken), and they don't fit too great. This place is local (and sells nationally), so I am going there this morning for a refun... Read more
