Why do I need the FDA to regulate my salt intake? I appreciate the research on how much is good for me, but I don't need them to feed me like a toddler. I won't get into a big rant about the government (although I could easily), but I would... Read more

Wonder what you think about supplements. Without the supplements I don't seem to get very many vitamins at all, but with the supplements I'm over on vit A and D a lot, which apparently are the ones that can wreak havoc in large quantities. ... Read more

Went to the parish picnic today; started with a mass that none of my little people wanted to sit through. It became a contest to see who could be the most obnoxious. I spent the entire mass either in the bathroom or running around. We ended up c... Read more

I think I got it this time. I'm exercising, which makes me feel great. I'm also watching my calories at home. Still not losing weight. It's funny how long it took me to figure out the problem: firehouse food. Even if I stay away from the pile of... Read more
