Friday, June 04, 2010      8 comments

Gotta Toe the Line . . .

Thursday, May 27, 2010      14 comments

How're we doing, stats-wise?? Calling all SP MAINtainers!!

Friday, April 02, 2010      15 comments

There was an interesting article in the April 1 Toronto Globe and Mail which I'm pretty sure wasn't an April Fools joke: "Most Canadian dieters can't keep pounds off, poll finds". If you want the link, here it is: http://www.theglobean... Read more

SEQUENTIALLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUSLY

Saturday, February 20, 2010      15 comments

I've been thinking quite a bit about a recent FRACTALMYTH blog on focus, the necessity of deciding what to do and moving ahead etc. etc. This seems to me to be a perpetual problem for women in particular. We women are told, unceasingly, ... Read more
