Feeling a little sad tonight.
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
I've reached my limit on football!!
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
2 lb gain in a week and a half. BLAAHHH!!
I've been home a week and a half from over two months of weight loss at a hospital and nursing homes. Now, with company in my house, there has been a lot of food around, and I have gained two lbs. I just read an article about motivation comin... Read more
Just realizing how much The Kitchen is My Medicine Cabinet.
I was recently out of commission for just over two months. In nursing homes and a hospital. I lost 21 pounds because all you could have were three moderate meals per day, plus some minimal snacks. Now that I'm home, I'm really aware of what I a... 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
Hello, Spark Friends!!
Hope you are all doing well. It has been nine days since I had a double fusion on my lower spine. Recovery is coming along, but sometimes you have to dig deep to get the will to roll over your legs and get out of bed. However, I am gradually w... Read more
Here's hoping that this last week of January...
is a good one for Sparkers far and wide. May it be a good week for finding our own personal acceptance, key to so much in life. Glenn... Read more
Second thoughts on "Stuck in the Natural World".
Humans are amazingly adaptable. I find that I am also. Even though hours ago, I expressed grave concern about the coming changes to how we will deal with our bodies, I feel now that I just will adapt. I don't have to live to be 200. I don't h... Read more
Stuck in the natural world.
Was just reading an article about transhumanism. That is a school of thought that believes that we should use all the science and technology to extend our lives, including artificial organs to keep us going indefinitely. Also, it includes usin... Read more
Not TOO Much Water
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
