Thank you!! We love our Vinnie and hope he is with us for as many years as you had your schnauzer. He is the best dog. I'd never had a dog before and he is the best. My oldest son wanted a dog and we had to find the right one. My neighbor across from the street works at our local small animal hospital and her daughter told us about him! He was sweet from the beginning. He definitely has the schnauzer personality and coat, but the legs and snout of a poodle!!

Me taking care of Me.

Welcome to the group. You are doing a great job on your weight loss. I checked out your spark page. You have a beautiful family. I love your schnoodle. I had a mini Schnauzer for 17 years that I loved. I hope he gives you as much joy for as many years. I will have to go and check out the website you have under his picture.

Hello all fellow UMC members. I'm from Oklahoma the Tulsa Area. We belong to our local FUMC in our town. I'm on the losing streak again, that is getting the pounds gone again. I'd lost 40, 5 years ago and gained it all back. I am working on losing it again and more. Great to find a SP UMC team!!

George, You are well travelled. Growing up in Oregon, I also visited the creamery as a child. Was the tunnel to walk to Tillamook beach still open when you visited? I remember thinking how spooky it was. It collapsed one winter when I was still a fairly young adult. So, I guess it really was spooky.

I got my M.S.ED. at UofO in Eugene. I only went the one summer and did the rest of my course work off campus.

Did you and your family ever get over to KahNeeTa Hot Springs when you were a child? We spent quite a bit of time there. It is a pretty fancy resort with a casino now, but then it was just a very large pool with river water pumped in by pipe over ground on one side and hot spring water pumped in by pipe over ground on the other side. If you got too close to either pipe you either froze or were scalded. Interestingly the pipes were pumping into the shallow end where the kids were. Some of my fondest childhood memories occurred there.

I actually have travelled outside of Oregon. I have been to every state west of Missouri including Alaska and Hawaii. I have also been to British Columbia. I fell in love with Hawaii and cried buckets when I returned home to dark grey cold drizzle. It took me months to fall in love with Oregon again.

On a side note, I have many fond memories of Coos Bay and environs. When I was a kid (between age 5 and 10), we lived in Eugene while my dad attended the University and taught in the Public Schools there. We often made weekend trips to Honeyman State Park to camp, and usually went to play on the dunes at Coos Bay when we did. I remember going through the Tillamook Creamery and tasting the cheese, etc. as well.

Later in life, I took my family to all of those places and more, including Sea Lion Caves (both kids still talk about that 30 odd years later).

One of these days, we will be completely retired, and maybe take some grandkids to see those sights....

Our church is about 45 minutes north of Portland. I think Coos Bay is in the western conference and we are in the Metro conference. Your Pastor Sterwart missed a wet, wild and windy winter on the coast.

I am relatively new to SparkPeople (about 2 weeks). I finally got around to exploring the various teams, and figured I probably belong here. emoticon

I am the Lay Leader of a small church near Perkins, Oklahoma, and also the Lay Delegate to the OK Annual Conference. My faith is important to me, and with Him all things are possible -- even losing the 40 to 50 pounds that I need to shed.

Thought I'd introduce myself and say HI! I'm a UM pastors wife. I've got a lot of weight to lose, and am in a group at the Y that suggested spark people. I found this UM site through Cindi! Thanks!! Hope to meet some new friends, too.

Welcome. I got to spend a week in Dallas to go to the Perkins School of Youth Ministry one year. Very impressive. Just sorry I didn't see Perkins itself. I've had a lot of friends who went there.

Hi Amy - welcome to the team! Looks like you have had a great Sparkjourney... I am really impressed that you have given up soda - I have cut way down, but I still have to have a diet soda now and then.

Hope to get to know you better here in the forum!

Blessings,
