Playing in the cedars
Saturday, June 22, 2013      0 comments

I'm excited that my kids are old enough to have fun playing in the cedars with me. We took a 2 hour walk in the cedars this week, and while one of them had to be shuttled back home for a "potty break", it only happened once, and my wife was abl... Read more
Thinking in French

When I was trying to learn the French language, I knew I was getting there when I started dreaming and thinking in French. I've been motoring along with my eating and exercising the last couple of months. Tonight though, I had a few extr... Read more
Fitness goals
Tuesday, May 19, 2009      1 comments

The SparkPoints Wheel
Tuesday, April 21, 2009      3 comments

Am I the only one who feels ripped off by this thing? Why is it that each time I spin it, I get 1 Sparkpoint? The 5 looks like it might be coming up, but then it speeds up again and goes right for the field of side-by-side "1"s. Disappointing... Read more

I've resisted the urge to blog for several years now, but I feel this is more than just a bla bla bla page. I'm going to be a good sport about this, and though the first topic is kind of bland in content, I'll make sure that my next post is mor... Read more
