A HELPFUL HINT FOR THE GYM
I have figured out a way to stay in the gym longer. I used to watch videos on my iPod, but frankly, it was getting expensive paying the $2 to download. I tried reading, but that wasn't working because it was hard to read and pedal, read a jog.... Read more

Ooo la la!
Yesterday, I went to a french restaurant for dinner. I enjoyed myself, although I didn't order the warm goat cheese salad which is one of my favorite things. I am not usually good at resisting my favorites when I am in a restaurant. The meal wa... Read more
