Tomorrow is a big celebration for my hometown

Friday, June 22, 2012


Tomorrow is a big celebration for our little community of 950 people. We will be celebrating our 175th birthday. My dad's mom's side of the family started this town back in 1837. We hare have a lot of things going on. Music, movies, cupcake eating contest for the kids and a lot of things. Up on Main Street where the most of it is going ot take place. The movies and music is going to take place at the fairgrounds.

Dad's oldest brother went home today. I hope the brother is right. He seems to be doing better the past few days. His right hand isn't as swollen as it as before. He was shaving yesterday with an electric shaver.

Did anyone watch Dr. Oz today about taking zinc to boost your metabolism? I'm going to try that to help with my metabolism. I checked my multivitamins and they aren't as much as Dr. Oz said to take. My multivitamin has 11mg and Dr. Oz said we should be taking 12mg. I'm going to get a small bottle of zinc and try it out. I will let everyone know how it goes.

I only did 2 walks today with the dog but no workout dvds. Why? My left knee was really killing me today. I did 4 walks and 1 workout DVD twice yesterday but I'm not usually that sore. I was sore before I got that far with my exercises. When we got parts yesterday for the garage here in town I was limping a little bit when we went in to get the parts. Plus I didn't eat much to burn a whole lot of calories. Didn't eat supper. Wasn't hungry and didn't have anything in the house or money at the moment to get anything uptown. Hopefully tomorrow if I'm lucky.

    Now THAT's a small town! And you're related to the founders? What a great sense of history and pride you must have for your town tomorrow! I hope you have a wonderful time!

    I have taken zinc from time to time along with our regular vitamins and I'm not sure if daily use boosts your metabolism. Maybe it did or maybe not. I DO know that when I take it at the beginning of coming down with a cold, it will shorten the length of the cold by a day or two!

    I hope that your knee feels better.
