Feeling a little sad tonight.

Wednesday, April 29, 2015      14 comments

My younger sister by two years has come down with pancreatic cancer. I actually knew about it a month ago, but tonight, the news is really sinking in. She is kind of a non-traditionalist, and believes in natural and homeopathic ways of healing... Read more

Tuesday, April 28, 2015      6 comments

I have written here about some of my feelings about football since the later information has come out about concussions and traumatic brain injury. I just yesterday read a very moving piece in the NYTimes about a kid who came from a football ori... Read more

Some people dream about success. Other people wake up and work hard at it.

I have realized lately that I have been doing neither of those. So it's time to start dreamin'. And time to start workin'. I've got to go after my interests before life runs me out of steam (by getting too old to start). Or is there a too old ... Read more

Hello, Again, Spark friends.

Well, I don't know how complete my last blog was. I am currently in a rehab/nursing home. I had two surgeries, one on the 3rd, and one on the 17th. The rehabbing at home option wasn't the best for me, so this time I am in this care center, a... Read more

Not TOO Much Water

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      11 comments

For most of my adult life, the diet experts have been singing the praises of water consumption for weight loss plans. Having penchant for ice water (I loved it), I drank to my hearts content. In addition to the water, I had added diet Pepsi, and... Read more
