He was "the love of my life" and died 4 years ago of liver cancer at age 5. He used to go to work with me and see patients--kids would hold him while getting their shots, schizophrenics held him while getting blood draws and pelvic exams, and so on. He greeted everyone at the door of the practice and came in the exam room if they wanted him to and most did. I miss him!!!

I wouldn't change your alias. It is good to make others suspicious. Make them uneasy and that is the goal here.

I don't wanna Google myself, Popeye. I'm afraid all that will turn up is B-o-r-i-n-g. That would make me cry.

Glad you've come out to play.

Did I accuse you of lurking? I know that would be a lie. If you're around, you're not bashful enough to lurk.

Thanks for the security tips...unless you're lucky enough to be me and have such a common name that you have to identify yourself by your birthdate at the local pharmacy. I've never run into the other "Sassy," but I'm sure I'd hate her if I did. Stupid name thief. I had it first. (I KNOW I did, because I'm just six eons younger than Popeye, so have been around since almost the beginning of time.)

Lynn,

I know I'm behind the curve in welcoming you to the team, but emoticon .

I must correct SassyJay's intimation that I'm a dirty old lurker. I never lurk. I am either here, or not here.

Lately, I've mostly been 'not here'. I was either working very hard at on-scene political stuff, or suffering from S.A.D., or recovering from working on political stuff. This year, uhm, last year I was so wound up in the political scene that I didn't notice when the S.A.D. actually started and it kicked me into the Chronic Depression I've fought for the past 7+ years (it stayed hidden for years after I spent a 13 month vacation in the Southeastern country of Vietnam).

If you get a rash of old topics in your in-box, it will probably be me trying to get caught up so I may regain my title of King Sarcastic. I know that I maintain order and am successful on a few occasions, but with the odds here, I feel great if I win once in every 385 times. I have one a couple of times when some pinhead guy came in and started trying to throw his weight around (pun intended). Neither could handle the heat, so they crawled out of the oven and left with their feathers singed.

I remember that I have scored a couple of points off the ladies on this team, but the cost was so high I can no longer remember exactly when it was or even the subject.

I want to congratulate you on your transition from brat to settled civilian. That's a conversion that takes a great deal of focus and effort.

And one other thing - I have taken on the job of Security Advisor for our team and for some others. I recommend you change your screen name - if your screen name is actually your real name, and you change the information on your SparkPage to something less specific than 'Richmond, Virginia'. I haven't tried to scry your photos, but it is possible to find out where the photos were taken - there is a day/date/location function on camera's that are tied to your GPS function, and it gives your location in latitude and longitude.

I'm not trying to scare you, just trying to help make you safer on the Internet. There is a lot of stuff they don't tell you when you start using an Internet account - try Googling yourself and see what you can find on the 'net.

I live near Richmond Virginia. The winds are about 45 miles an hour and we have heavy rain but we're missing the brunt of it. We are supposed to get sleet tonight and tomorrow. Lynn

Don't know where you are but everything's closed down today and possibly tomorrow in the Philadelphia region.

Yep--we're friends. Thanks for explaining. I'm getting more motivated being on the team--the hurricane is hitting us hard now so I'm indoors getting ready to get on my elliptical before I head to work.

Yes you get 3 points for every time you post, up to 15 pts per day. When you have posted 100 times you get a bonus of 10 points, I think. It's at the bootom of your Spark Points page, check out all the drivel you can get points for. Sh**, I've been on here for 6 or 7 years and almost have 100,000 points. I give away a lot of Spark Goodies to my friends... Are you my friend? I'll make you one.

Ya know the Best Part of the blog post besides getting all these new team members? It's brought some of our favorite lurkers (like Mookball 10ACBirdwalker and Popeye) out in the open.

Okay, so they don't always lurk or we wouldn't know their names...but they've been a long time not-posting.

Hey if u want some points go to the team's main page and scroll down to the bottom and join a goal. each day you do it and check it on your goal tracker u get a point. U max out points for the day at 5 goals though.Sparkguy's team could allow us more goals, maybe we should lobby our blog writer since he has connections.

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

Hi Lynn,

Your page has (intentionally, or not) been set to "private." This prevents us from visiting you.

If you want to leave it that way, there is no judgement (and there ARE legitimate reasons to do so).

I know mine and Chris's are "open." So you can just go to our pages (or any other Sparkers with open pages), and in the top right corner will be a 'button' that says "Add as SparkFriend." Click it, and it will change to "Remove as SparkFriend" (which we know you would NEVER want to do).

When you click that button, it sends the other person an email notifying them. Then they have permission to go to your page and do the same. Now you have friends and there can be emoticon all around. I'm getting all teary-eyed just thinking about it.

Some days it seems I will do anything for spark points--they should throw some crazy ones in there to see if we're paying attention. I might, for instance, be willing to wear bedroom slippers to work for 5 points.

Hey Lynn, thanks for 'outing' Debby. She has never admitted to the rest of us her real reason for posting. Just good to have 'everything out on the table.'

BTW, you need to 'friend up,' girl. How are we supposed to harass you in a really personal way if we can't get on your SparkPage?

Okay, I'm introducing myself and waiting for the sarcasm. I read about the team on a blog posted today and decided I could use more humor in my life and sarcasm is the form that gets a laugh from me. Lynn

P.S. Can we get sparkpoints for this? We need to lobby with SparkGuy.
