I was just wondering if anyone has had the Lap-band or Realize band? Thu, 15 Jul 2010 12:25:50 EST What's growing and what are you doing with it? This is a selfish thread. My fig tree is going gang-busters at the moment and as long as I can get out there before the birds have all the ripe ones each day we get about a quart of figs daily (if past summers are any prediction). I've tried making fig bars (ugly but yummy, but really, really ugly!), and I've canned cooked figs. My favorite way to have them is just halved as an edible garnish with whatever is for dinner. But I can't help but think I'm missing a great way to save, cook, or... Wed, 7 Jul 2010 12:52:35 EST Yoga Bootcamp!!

I know some people on here belong to local gyms, while others just have certain parks or trails they prefer. Where do you go workout? <BR> <BR> For me I belong to Powerhouse Gym, we have a few parks I like to walk down to (when it's not so boiling outside). If any other "losers" belong to the same gym (or anywhere else for that matter) and would like to work out sometime let me know, I'm all for having someone else to push me :-) Tue, 18 Aug 2009 14:29:14 EST Sorry everyone...... Ok, so I know this group has been dead, and it's been a few months since I've been on, but we will get this going!! I'll try and start a few new topics, and hope every is doing well on their side!!! Tue, 18 Aug 2009 14:27:03 EST are any of you flooded in? I just left a 5k in Brenham and we had a horrible time trying to get out of Alvin. All roads were blocked off and flooded everywhere. We finally made it home. Thank God. Sat, 18 Apr 2009 19:02:49 EST Team icon.... We need one. Anyone have any ideas for what we can use? Thu, 16 Apr 2009 21:33:29 EST Welcome!
