This week I was happy to get fallen branches picked up and the grass cut. While I was out there I picked the first ripe blackberry from the crop that should peak by my birthday.

Well, you've cured ME of considering tree surgery as a career! At least if someone said your pants were so tight they looked glued on, you could say they were!

Yes. I believe I will have a tree service do the removal, but I am not in a big hurry. It doesn't pose a danger to anyone where it's at.

Not much gets pine goo off. I was camping in Banff, Canada one year and had to answer the call of nature. Having just had knee surgery, I leaned back on a nearby tree for support. Ooops! My jeans stuck to my backside for several days after that. emoticon

Just a little problem out back, eh? Are we calling a tree service in, or attempting to cut some of it back ourselves?

If so, is there a soap that will get pine goo OFF of my alabaster skin?

Don't be too jealous, it was the little one in the front, I haven't begun the back yard work yet. It is kind of a jungle out there. One of the pines died this past winter and I didn't even see it until April. But hay, it was only about fifty feet tall.

Gwen, I'm so jealous that you're done with the rock wall. I've been doing ours in "spits and furts" for the last year. I think I have just one more level to do--then backfill it withthe dirt in the backyard where the ground level deck WILL be. emoticon

Now that sounds like a project! It has been quite hot here in So Cal. I swam and floated in the pool most of the day. It was a pretty lazy day. I really enjoyed it. Haven't been just plain ol' lazy for awhile.

We had a hot and sticky day in Kentucky yesterday, which is normal for this time of year. I did a lot of sweating finishing the stone wall around the front landscaping. Racked up some nice exercise points on that project...now to get the back yard in shape.

Just a quick "Hello" between shifts at the Democratic booth today. We spent the early morning building it, are doing the noon to 4pm shift and will be back tonight to pack everything and clean up before the fireworks. I think I'll sleep in tomorrow.

Not a problem. I hate Vista anyway. I switch between a Mac and PC at the office and use a PC at home. I personally think that Vista is going to push a lot of people away from windows. Nobody I know likes the changes.

My apologies to all of you for the spacing in my last post. I was using my babe's new computer (it was a b-day present from me to her) and did not know what I was doing. I blame it on Windows Vista as I am a Mac person myself!

There is a fireworks show here but I am not sure we will have the energy to stay downtown for it. We have to be there at 6:30 AM. If we stay for the fireworks it would be after midnight before we could get out of the giant traffic jam the show causes.

We're just hangin' with the 'rents, watching the entire valley below us fill up with fireworks. There's an Indian reservation 4 miles away and everyone buys tons of heavy duty fireworks--better than the city show.

The VP deserves special treatment. How about we weigh him down with those defective flack jackets his former company sent our troops into battle with? Seems only fitting they contribute to his demise.

Yeah, what is it with those truck balls? As it is, a straight GF says "Sorry about your penis" everytime something like that passes by (also when men with comb-overs are driving little convertibles.)

Remember, though, when figuring out the cardio on this, that Dubya is a lightweight compared to the Veep. emoticon

I had a great idea for weighting down those rugs when we dump W in the Potomac. Have you seen those stupid truck balls that guys dangle from chains on the hitch of their pickup trucks? They look just stupid enough to be perfect for him. He has spent 8 years trying to prove his are made of steel. We could send him off with some fake ones.

Thanks for the good wishes.

I saw my doctor yesterday. She seems to think I am getting healthier and need less medicine. We've cut the dose and I will need to check my blood pressure a couple times a day for a few weeks and chart the results.

I am sure we will get it regulated again...at least until I lose more weight. Who knows? Maybe I will be able to stop taking these meds some day. I would be perfectly happy to take fewer pills each morning.

I've watched the Sopranos enough to know we could roll up many things in rugs (such as the current White House residents) and toss the contents off a long pier. And it would be strength conditioning AND cardio.

Nope, not in the house. How about off the back deck, then we could run down the hill and lug it back. That should work almost as well as a balcony and stairs. Of course, the neighbors will think we are nuts.

How would we count and score this? Is there a Strength Training Tracker that could be used, or does it need to be its own topic?

BTW, I think that any REAL moving of boxes (which counts under ST) should count double!

I'm leaning (left, of course) towards a team event. Perhaps a relay, so we could include Condi Rice, Karl Rove, and Sec of ed Margaret Spelling. Just let all the liberal teachers put her through some high stakes testing! emoticon

Oh I think the VP will be a separate sport. He shouldn't have it so easy with just a drop over the balcony.

That sounds like a team sport. We could make it a real race and throw the VP off his balcony too. Why should W have all the punting?

Can we also include lifting and heaving him over the balcony, running down and carrying him back up to do it over again?? That would be some MAJOR exercise! And fun too!

I think we're on to something. There would be lots of exercise in tossing them to the top of the heap. In eight years he has probably accumulated a lot of stuff.

I would rather be there to boot him out the door and just throw his stuff on the lawn. After what he has done to our country he doesn't deserve help with anything. I would like to see him and his pack of slime-bags tried for war crimes.

in my fantasy world, yardwork should be like losing weight---it happens really fast and you only have to do it once!

Here my wife doesn't do the yardwork because it's too wet to weed--so she claims. If only it was too wet for the darn weeds to grow!

Opening the back door and getting a blast of the heat is usually enough to wipe that thought from her mind. She did pitch in with the gutters and pruning over the Memorial Day holiday though. It wasn't in the 90's then.

My spouse has worked very hard at losing that weight. She has also done an amazing amount of house and yard work in the past couple of weeks, which has its own exercise value.

It's ALMOST enough to convince me to get out there.

Muggy in Kentucky all day Saturday. We were lucky enough to have a nice breeze when we were walking, but pruning the shrubs in the afternoon was really hot and sticky. Wouldn't you know that after all of that the scale didn't move a pound this morning?

I'm a liberal raised by liberals. I grew up watching my parents get involved in causes and political races. I didn't get greatly involved in anything political until I was about thirty. Then again, I had to grow up enough to realize that it was now my job to start changing things.

I hope we can find some interesting things to share! And support each other in improving our health, of course.

Hello, welcome, glad to have you on the list. I too am over 50 and over weight. I am not sure over educated is possible, but often feel over qualified for the job I do, and over loaded with useless stuff.

I know what you mean by the same old arguments, it seems that the new is often just a rehash of the old with younger faces. When I look back to where we were in the 70's I can see the changes. Most of the time, knowing how far we have come keeps me working toward the goal. I am trying to apply that to the weight loss effort.

I'm new to SP and to this team. I'm over 50, over educated, over weight, over being over. I've been involved in lesbian politics for 35 years, and I'll be involved for the next 35. Although the same old arguments, discussions and whatever can get a bit redundant, I still love to hang out with the Sisterhood and try to make the world a better place.
