we can see the San Francisco Zoo or San Diego zoo. WE don't get to see it real often, but that makes it more of a treat. I like the butterfly space and penguin emoticon section.

Kelly you use the zoo like we do the Arboretum here. Such a lovely and safe place to walk.

DJ didn't realize you were a military family. Thank you for the sacrifices you and your family made! How are your children? Hope all is well!!

Hope Everyone has a great day!

We just went to the Omaha zoo a couple weeks ago. It seems like it's constantly under construction. They're building a new area now for big cats and giraffes, etc. They have a desert dome that has been added within the last 10 years but I don't remember if that's the last thing that was added. Seems like I'm forgetting something...Here's a link to it if you want to check out what's been added since you were there last:

Has it gotten bigger? I know that when my family left that they were doing more work on it. I took my children to it all the time when we were station there.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

hi Deb, I haven't heard from you in a long time.

We love those special kids in our lives!

Speaking of trains, we saw a show last night concerning a train from 1903 they restored. It looked amazing!!!!! I was trying to think of the name. It's " Restoration_______. I can't think of the rest. They did a old plane, merry go round, and will do one on an pipe organ. I think they have 6 or 7 such shows. Their work is remarkable.

Isn't it great seeing children! I love it when one or more of mine are home. What a blessing when they are all home at the same time! ;-) Glad you were each able to see one of your children over the weekend!

My Grandbaby is feeling better. Still no teeth but at least the low grade fever is gone and he is happier again. It is obvious his teeth are still bothering him.
Am getting more done today and am looking forward to having more things in order around here. ;-)

A train trip sounds fun! Someday I'm going to take the Amtrak to Washington D.C. Don't think I want to be driving there.

Good morning! Well, just got in from our fun train trip about an hour or so ago. It was late both ways but the meals and customer service was excellent. And so nice to get to Vancouver Island for the day to see our son. Will be back here tomorrow. Have a great day!

Sorry your fairs aren't any good. Our State Fair is local to use. They have discount days and we always go then. Lots of free things to do.

I hear you about children. It doesn't do the children a good service to always be center of the attention either.

Hope everyone has a great day!

That's one reason that the county fairs should really be supported - there are so many things to do at most of them that are free. There's usually a charge for the evening events but all the 4-H stuff is free to attend and all the craft and home-show type booths are free. I don't mind paying for the evening entertainment if it's any good, but we don't even have any PRCA rodeos at our fair anymore and the 'big' Sat. night show is some group I've never even heard of.

Things have definitely changed. I, myself, haven't been to a county fair in about 15 years. I hate that the cost to attend anything like this has just sky-rocketed!

Hope everyone is having a great week! Our county fair is being held this week but I probably won't be doing much there; it's not as good as it used to be. A co-worker and I were discussing the situation earlier but didn't really come up with any good solutions. I'm not anti-child, but I think a lot of the problem is that our society has become such a 'child-worshipping' one that anyone without kids at home or grandkids are pretty much left out. In these parts, if it doesn't involve kids or the school, it doesn't get done. Kind of sad really.

I try grow as much as I can, and I buy a lot from my friends who own local farms. The only difficulty comes when I get to the supermarket..... It just takes so much time, especially where the kids are involved (chopping and changing what they want all of the time).

I know I haven't been on the groups lately. Been busy. But just to let you know I won't be on at all next week. Off for a train trip to Vancouver, go to Vancouver Island and then back on the train Friday. Will be back sometime Sunday. Hope you all have a good week and make good choices.

We LOVE any addition to our conversation and I will read that article. I always just assumed that artificial sweeteners raised your blood sugar anyway. I thought the only good thing about them was the lack of calories. Any other information you get from your dietician is certainly welcome here. I would love to find a dietician/nutritionist but I don't think there are any within 150 miles of me so I get all my information off the 'net'.

Went on a shopping trip yesterday. Didn't get all we wanted but spent enough money anyway. Need to get some weeding done today.

LLREED I read the same article with shock. I see a dietician and the first thing apart from carbs I had eliminate (meds) from my diet, were the hidden artificial sweeteners in my yogurt (I don't do fizzy drinks). Explanation: her research (she has a PhD in nutrition, specialises in Rheumatology) has led her to believe that they cause an increase in blood glucose levels, higher than the regular sugary drink. This is caused by changing the diversity of gut flora.
This is a VERY interesting article (apologies if it has been added before).
http://www.webmd.com/diet/20140917/artif
icial-sweeteners-blood-sugar?page=1

She is also conducting research into leaky gut syndrome and the immune system, I haven't posted before, but I feel very strongly about artificial sweeteners and how they are hidden (especially in my children's food) I'm OCD about reading labels on everything now!

I hope you don't mind me adding to the conversation. Alexis

Spark chooses what they put on our Start pages and that is where I found the blog, in the scrolling articles at the top. I may contact someone but I'm sure I'll get the standard line about needing funds from advertisers to keep it free.

Just beware of ANY information that you find on the internet no matter where it comes from. Check references and do your homework!

Wow Lisa that is disturbing! Guess they are worried if they have to pass around information like that! Would it help contacting Spark People about it? I would be surprised if they approved.

Hope Everyone has a good day. Mine has been wonderful. My life has been super busy lately and was sick with a terrible cold for a couple weeks in June. Then this past week I injured my back, doing too much lifting. So stopped that and then rested and stretched. I am much better and know I have to watch what I am doing and how I am doing it. ;-)

Hugs and blessings to you all!

Wow! I just read a rather disturbing blog here on Spark. Did you see this one on your Start page this morning? 'Simple Tweaks for Summer Weight Loss ' I clicked on it and checked the date - 7-17-15 - and thought 'Great, a new one!' It's written by a woman neurologist and mother of 5 who has lost 140 pounds. So far, so good.
First piece of advice is to find an exercise that you like and get it done in the morning (before the 5 kids get up). Well, that's reasonable. Then she suggested tracking your food. That's good.
The rest of the article blew me away! Here it is:

'The other important element of my weight loss journey was changing my diet. I tried to be realistic because no one is perfect—and remembering that is key. I started tracking what I ate to hold myself accountable, and when sweet cravings hit, I reached for a diet soda. People are sometimes surprised to hear that, but research shows diet beverages are an effective option for those who want to shed pounds.

In fact, a recent study found 64 percent of diet beverage drinkers lost at least five percent of their body weight, compared with 43 percent of those who drank water. And that can be significant as far as overall health. In fact, studies have shown that losing just five percent of body weight can significantly improve health, including lowering your risk for heart disease and high blood pressure. The diet beverage group in this study also showed significantly greater improvements in blood levels of total cholesterol and what we call ''bad'' cholesterol (or LDL), as well as a significant reduction in triglycerides. So, remember all of this when you hear the latest ''news'' story that diet soda makes you fat; in fact, I can personally and scientifically attest, it’s quite the opposite.

If you have a sweet tooth like me, here’s some more good news: diet beverages can also help satisfy those cravings. In the Choose Healthy Options Consciously Everyday (CHOICE) study, researchers compared consumption of low- and no-calorie beverages with water and found that the people who drank diet beverages reported eating fewer desserts.

And if you’ve got concerns about the safety of low- and no-calorie sweeteners – don’t. Hundreds of studies reaffirm the safety of the low- and no-calorie sweeteners used in thousands of foods and beverages, not just in the United States, but worldwide. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) are just two of the government agencies in more than 100 countries that have approved them and their use for general consumption.

Bottom line: you don’t have to miss out on summer fun because you’re trying to lose or maintain your weight. Figure out which diet and exercise strategies work best for you, and incorporate them into your daily routine.'

WHAT?! All evidence that I've read suggests that artificial sweeteners are pure poison. It only takes a little research to find that several of them are now being linked to cancer. And don't even get me started on the FDA's approval process. Just because they've deemed something safe, DOES NOT mean that it is.

So the 'tweaks' that I need to make this summer to lose weight are: exercise, track my food, and drink diet soda.

I wanted to leave a comment on this blog but there is no place for comments. Instead, if you scroll to the bottom you read this:
'This blog is brought to you by the American Beverage Association.'
Well, that explains a lot.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Finally got to go riding yesterday! Spent more time getting there than riding, but was a good day anyway.

Yep! That's where we got stuck and had to wait for my brother to come pull us out!

That's Eric's house and outbuildings from the top of a nearby hill. My favorite place to ride and from where I want my ashes to be scattered when I die.

DADDYS_GIRL6 he tried to get that health insurance but was denied and they said that he can fight it but that would not help so not sure what to do now.

Hello Friends!
DJ so glad you are having such a good visit with DH's family. Hoping it fills you will happy memories filled with happy present times. How is your DS? I keep praying for him and hope his surgery can be soon.

Kelly so sorry your DS broke his collar bone! Hope it does repair quickly and the "run in" with the dog doesn't set him back too much.
Oh, how I miss my walks with my DH. It was such a special time for us!

Hope Everyone has a great weekend!

Youngest son had a follow up X-ray today. His collarbone is healing but it looks like one of the times our daughter's puppy rammed into him caused some problems. The break was separated more than it was initially, though the bone has started to heal. So, good and not-so-good news both.

Good morning! One more day off and then it's back to the grind. Fasting for most of the day as I did nothing but eat yesterday. emoticon Going to try to get out to the garden and do a little more weeding. It rained almost 2 inches last night so they should pull really easily.

Spark has a survey that we can fill out if you would like to give your opinion.
www.surveymonkey.com/r/sparkpeople_2015
One of the questions says to check all that apply but won't let you check more than one so I just clicked the 'Other' box and then listed my choices. They are aware of the problem but not sure they have it fixed yet.

Yeah, we went back to HPB yesterday; the kids wanted to go. Then we ended up eating at Applebee's; we wanted to go to Carolos O'Kelly but it isn't there anymore. Too bad, we all really like that place.
I picked up a book yesterday called 'The Health of a Country. It deals with westward expansion of the states and how the pioneers referred to certain areas as 'healthy or unhealthy' and goes into just what they meant and how the land can be considered in those terms. Sounds pretty good.
Going to the zoo today.

Thanks Kelly! Got in about 7 and had supper at Old Chicago. Haven't had any alcohol since Memorial Day so had to have an Old Chicago Iced Tea (or 2). Tom and I split a Calzone and a salad. He thought they'd just bring it on one plate and he'd let me eat it, but they brought us both a small plate so he had to have some. It was a Mediterranean salad with artichoke hearts (I've never had artichokes). I thought it was really good, but Tom wasn't really impressed. I'll have to try to find some artichokes somewhere.
Then we went to Half Price Books and got a bunch of CDs. Chillin' at the motel now.
