Veggies, that is. Of course, we've always known that we should eat our fruits and vegetables. But science has finally caught up with common sense. A study in the UK investigated people's eating habits and health outcomes. The more fru... Read more

I'm fighting a sore throat. Probably a sinus or allergy problem that causes my throat to get sore. Drugs do weird things to me, so I try to stay away from them as much as possible. I'm usually a living, breathing, "Drug-Free Zone". LOL ... Read more

My mother had a surprise visit to the hospital a few days ago, perhaps a mild heart attack, and a medical procedure (angioplasty) while she was there. Scary enough. But when she awoke from the procedure she was literally out of her mind, fi... Read more

This is a re-post of an old blog. I think names are so important. How would you feel if no one knew your name? What's in a name? Most people will agree that the best thing about Spark People is all the Spark Friends we find here! T... Read more

Well, well, who knew that eating sensibly could become a habit at my age? This 3rd week of the Win in 2010 challenge I'm in was the easiest yet. I'm basically eating the same breakfast every day and happy with it. I don't think about lunc... Read more

I really can eat less. This first week was important to me because of a challenge I started on my Over 60's team. So I kept that challenge in mind constantly all week. All I have to do is lose. Not any certain amount, just lose something... Read more

My first project for the new year is to find a place nearby for my Mother to live. She's about 3 hours from me now and there's no straight route to get there. It's one of those places that you can't get to from here - you have to go somewhere ... Read more
