She also was quite delicate and elegant with her language. She wrote a letter to a particular campground and asked for reservations.

What influenced you to pick breed? I just saw on the news that the fellow who played the sheriff on the Dukes of Hazzard passed away. I didn't actually like the show but would often watch it to just catch glimpses of the Basset! It seems like a lot of 70's shows had a recurring Basset--Emergency, Columbo. Watched 'em all & waited for the dog! <BR> <BR> I grew up with a miniature poodle but decided as a teenager that life must one day include Bassets. They just seemed perfect for me. It took til I was 30 to get one, bu... Tue, 7 Apr 2015 12:16:29 EST April Challenge Here it is almost April. It is starting to warm up for some folks. It sure is warm here in So. Calif. <BR> For those of you who still have bad weather, and can't walk everyday outside, this is for you. <BR> A good video to get the blood pumping, and it's only 16 mins. You can cut the time in half if you chose. I'm going for the whole 16 mins. Try for 3 times a week. This exercise will be for the first week of April. Also, if you find the video to much due to knee injuries etc. you can always... Sun, 29 Mar 2015 00:43:41 EST Have a healthy breakfast March is here, and spring is around the corner for a lot of you. So time to start stepping up the exercise and bit. Even if it is 15 mins. more then what you are doing now. If you are snowed in, then do your exercise indoors. I found dance exercises in YouTube that helps me out. <BR> Also it is good to start your day off with Breakfast. Here is a good article that explains how important a Breakfast is. I'm not much of a morning person, never have been, but the last few months I made myself g... Thu, 5 Mar 2015 16:18:47 EST Duck verses Chicken Eggs Have any of you eaten Duck Eggs? Last July we were taking care of our neighbors birds while they were out of town. They have Muscovy Ducks. The day after our neighbors left town, 12 baby chicks were running around. At first we were worried, we knew nothing about Ducks. Luckily Mama Duck did all of the tending, we only needed to feed. After our friends came home they told us we could have pick of the litter. So my Hubby built a Duck pen, and now we have 1 male, and 3 females. Last Thursday we ... Thu, 5 Mar 2015 16:14:34 EST January Challenge This month we will have 2 challenges. <BR> <BR> 1...Consistency <BR> ie: 30 mins. daily exercise of any type..Or one day ST, next day walking etc. Or do a different exercise each day. Make it exciting. <BR> <BR> 2. Lose 5 pds. by the end of February. We have all talked about wanting to lose the pds. We can do it. Some of us might have to exercise indoors due to weather, but if we put our minds to it, we can lose...Even if it is 1 or 2 pds. <BR> Copy and paste the days for January. <BR> ... Tue, 6 Jan 2015 14:47:25 EST December, 2014... Okay, Sparkies, 30-minutes it is This month's challenge is to do cardio exercise 30 minutes/day... 7 days/week! <BR> <BR> Yes... We can do it. I just read Coach Nicole's own story (see motivation articles) and am humbled indeed. She did both cardio and ST every single day... 60 minutes each... wouldn't go to bed until she drank all her water and did all her exercises... and lost 89 lbs. in a year. I thought I was doing okay, but reading her story showed me how much I've been slacking off and how many excuses I've been ma... Tue, 9 Dec 2014 10:23:14 EST Challenge... ST 4 times/week, 10 minutes or more Okay fellow hound lovers... my challenge to myself to do ST every day simply didn't work. If you did better than me, congratulations. <BR> <BR> I'm going back to a more realistic goal of doing ST 4 times each week. I'll try to do it on alternate days, because we aren't supposed to exercise the same muscle groups on two consecutive days... but my firm goal is 4 times. <BR> <BR> I'm down to my last 13 lbs., and I will focus especially on my upper body and core since my virtual walk (almost d... Sun, 7 Dec 2014 08:57:37 EST Burn 3500 calories more than you eat = 1 lb loss Information on total calories eaten, calories burned and deficit is available on SP reports.

Mon, 1 Dec 2014 21:33:19 EST 10 minutes ST every day... we can do it! Okay team... <BR> <BR> It's time to get busy with the ST. Remember, don't exercise the same muscles two days in a row. I do arms and legs one day, core and abs the next... <BR> <BR> Tell us which exercises you like, and which ones you hate, but do anyway. Thu, 9 Oct 2014 10:11:13 EST 15 mins.

Sat, 4 Oct 2014 03:30:40 EST 10 minutes each day... We can do it! Hi all... <BR> You've probably heard the old expression, "use it or lose it". That applies, among other things, to your muscles. I've challenged myself to do 10 minutes of ST every day... or at least most days, because I'm not,and never will be, perfect at anything. <BR> <BR> To get serious for a minute, for years I've worried that at some point I might be bedridden and unable to self-transfer from bed to chair. That's why I've started to do arm, shoulder, abdominal and core exercises. ... Sun, 31 Aug 2014 15:39:15 EST Generous Beagle--true sharing!
