Busy day "off" Walked the dogs, then biked 12 miles, then gardened, then mowed the front yard and lower acre. So, while I was mowing in an overgrown area I must have hit the snake but not seen it. On my next round around the yard there was the m... Read more

good grief. If you don't know we live in a crazy world then you haven't watched the news or talked to anyone lately. There is so much awful depressing mess going on that it would be easy to wallow and whine and sink. I despair for our natio... Read more

I really like the comments I got yesterday. One was that I obviously had not bored people with my Sparkness at work. That is absolutely true. I have shared the Spark with lots of random folks but not at all with those I see daily or work with. I... Read more

A friend texted me yesterday to ask how it was going with Spark. I told her I loved it..........but, the truth is, I'm not really doing it. I have allowed myself to slide instead of check, assuming instead of tracking, and not keeping up with re... Read more

So I have been here for 3-1/2 months, exercising, running more and more.......but I have lost my focus. When I first headed out on vacation I was concerned about this, and now I know with reason. I'm so pleased with what has already happened in ... Read more
