Curious About Curiosity on Mars
Saturday, August 04, 2012      7 comments

I am looking forward to watching the Mars landing late Monday night. After viewing the interesting way it was constructed, told by the engineers who did it, I can see why they say they will be holding their breath. Simply amazing stuff. W... Read more
Even Wgt Bias For Cremation Services
Friday, August 03, 2012      13 comments

I know this isn't a pleasant topic, but I have to be realistic and plan for final arrangements for myself. After the deaths of so many loved ones in the past few years, I've decided to be proactive so that all details are taken care of and no o... Read more
Wonky Computer Issues w/SP Site
Wednesday, August 01, 2012      6 comments

A month or so ago, I wrote about issues of having to log in each time I wanted to get onto this site. I wrote to the help desk and have had no trouble with that since then. However, now another curious thing is happening to my incoming not... Read more

I finally found running shoes that fit nicely. I've blogged about it recently and appreciate everyone's input. Spent a lot of time trying on different brands/styles. Found New Balance and they are even made in the USA! Wow, I didn't think an... Read more
Raspberry Ketones?
Saturday, July 28, 2012      6 comments

I was just on my favorite supplement site, ordering my replacement supply, when I happened upon something called raspberry ketones. And many positive reviews from people who've used it as an appetite suppressant. Not a fan of Dr. Oz (I don't w... Read more
Mini Goal - All About Perspective
Friday, July 27, 2012      9 comments

The concert is on August 26, and from now until then, my mini goal is to lose 5 lbs. Of course, it sounds like a very easy thing to do. For someone whose body insists that it would prefer to plateau, not so easy. However, I will do it. There... Read more
My Skinny Jeans Funny Story
Thursday, July 26, 2012      13 comments

Last year, I bought a $200 pair of jeans marked down to $10 at Marshalls (good ole Marshalls). Even though the tag said they were my size, when I tried to get them on, they wouldn't even get up my leg. I thought they were probably mistagged fr... Read more
Olympics & Another Concert
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      4 comments

Some years, I watch Olympics. This year, not a bit interested. One reason could be that I haven't watched TV in about a year and don't even go near the thing. Have no interest in turning it on for any reason. Just doesn't appeal to me. ... Read more
C'mon... Where Did July Go?
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      5 comments

I wind up saying this every month, so it's my own little running joke. But, honestly, I cannot believe how time is flying at lightning speed. July is disappearing faster than ever. Wishing all a happy day.... Read more

The first woman in space, but a collegue where I used to work, she was a shining star in life and will probably be wherever she is now. Sally, you are missed already. Rest in peace.... Read more

I just discovered this walk and researching it further, including a book I just ordered. There are four different paths of varying lengths, and this is something that I'd really enjoy doing. I think I am going to set it as a long-term goal/rewa... Read more
Running Shoe Dilemma-CONCLUSION
Friday, July 20, 2012      5 comments

So, the shoes arrived yesterday. This is the last time I buy through the mail. There is a defect (loop for lace is broken), and they don't fit too great. This place is local (and sells nationally), so I am going there this morning for a refun... Read more
Running Shoes Dilemma (contd.)
Thursday, July 19, 2012      5 comments

Thanks to all who responded yesterday; I appreciate the good advice. Unfortunately, by the time I received it, I'd already found two pairs of different styles by the same brand at a great price. I went ahead and ordered both. Expect that ... Read more
Running Shoe Dilemma - Aetrex?
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      7 comments

Anyone out there wear Aetrex? I'm changing my brand of shoe since Avia discontinued the only style that fit me well. Athletic shoes are the only things I have trouble fitting that are comfortable for my normal-size/width feet, for some reason.... Read more
Harry's Healed Eyeball
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      9 comments

Today I went to the Target pharmacy to pick up Harry's eyedrops. Remember I told you about this new vet being less expensive? My old vet charged me $30 for these eyedrops. At Target, with this new vet's perscription? $4!!!!!! He's 98 pe... Read more
