Thanks, Don. Makes you wonder if there is really a desire on our nation's policy makers part to improve health, wage war against obesity and save the environment .....

thanks Don.........

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And
maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Breathe in love & compassion.. Breathe out peace & forgiveness.

Thanks Don! I wasn't aware of this program. I will keep ears and eyes open!


Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

I received this notice today:

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has received word that a devastating attack on trails, walking and bicycling could happen this week.

Though we do not know details yet, we anticipate a congressional amendment that could do away with or hobble programs like Transportation Enhancements (the nation's largest funding source for trails, walking and bicycling), Recreational Trails Program and Safe Routes to School. Therefore, we are working with many other organizations to defeat such a damaging amendment.

No action is needed on this front today; we just wanted to give you a heads-up to expect an action alert from us in the coming days.

If it comes, please do not delay in speaking up: If such an amendment is offered, we might have mere hours to respond.

Thank you in advance,

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy


We are going to need to be vocal and active to PUSH our politicians to do the correct, healthy and green thing for us citizens!

We can use a little Walking Like Egyptians here in America! Let's not take this without a fight for what we know is right!
