Monday, August 28, 2017      8 comments

It's been a wild ride
Monday, February 27, 2012      1 comments

Lots of changes since I was a really active Sparker. I've moved to the city from the country. Broken up - settled down. Lost a family member, dealt with serious illnesses. And, probably more. I was off line for at least two years. But, I'm back ... Read more

Well, of all things - I have a herniated L5 disc. While it was extremely painful for a few days, I am feeling better today. I'm a little loopy from the medicine, but it's working - at last. Put a bit of a damper on my exercise goals and I'm e... Read more
