At the sound of the tolling midnight bell
a brand new year will begin.
Let's raise our hopes in a confident toast,
to the promise it ushers in.

May your battles be few, your pleasures many,
your wishes and dreams fulfilled.
May your confidence stand in the face of loss
and give you the strength to rebuild.

May peace of heart fill all your days
may serenity grace your soul.
May tranquil moments bless your life
and keep your spirit whole.

Hello Winter!!!



Winter arrives at 5:23p.m. EST tonight and the darkest time of the year is almost behind us with daylight starting to lengthen tomorrow - even if it's only for a few seconds at the beginning, pretty soon we'll be noticing it getting brighter in the evening - woohoo!!!

"I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."
~ Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

Now that's good news!!!

Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world. ~Ada Louise Huxtable

"Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth.

In the dreamy vale of beeches
Fair and faint is woven mist,
And the river's orient reaches
Are the palest amethyst.

Every limpid brook is singing
Of the lure of April days;
Every piney glen is ringing
With the maddest roundelays.

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Spring Song

Happy April Everyone!!!

Tonight ... at 8:30 p.m. your time ... turn lights out for 60 minutes!



FYI: Starting as a symbolic lights out event in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour is now the world's largest grassroots movement for the environment, inspiring millions of people to take action for our planet and nature. Since then it has grown to engage more than 180 countries and territories worldwide. Earth Hour is a global WWF (formerly known as World Wildlife Fund) climate change initiative. It is an event that aims to create awareness of people taking responsibility towards a sustainable future by turning the lights off. Note: Earth Hour is not to be confused with Earth Day - they are separate events.

Happy Earth Hour Day!!!

Really, I would have thought that all birds resided in Oregan - it's such a beautiful state. But I see from your status that you have crocuses blooming - how lovely. We've had snow now for three straight days and even some dreaded freezing rain this afternoon. There won't be any sign of blooming crocuses for a couple of months here in Toronto.

Hi Pat! It's nice to see you here with us on the Gazelle Users team - I'm also on the **Walking/Leslie Sansone Team**.

The first suggestion I can make is to wear a pedometer while Gazelling - that will give you your most accurate number of steps.

However, if you don't have a pedometer or forgot to wear one, A general gauge is: 15 minutes = 1 mile.

And here's a website that gives a rough estimate of the number of steps one takes per mile based on a stride to height ratio:

walking.about.com/od/pedometer1/a/st
ep
s-per-mile.htm


Height - Steps per Mile

•4'10" - 2,601
•4'11" - 2,557
•5'0" - 2,514
•5'1" - 2,473
•5'2" - 2,433
•5'3" - 2,395
•5'4" - 2,357
•5'5" - 2,321
•5'6" - 2,286
•5'7" - 2,252
•5'8" - 2,218
•5'9" - 2,186
•5'10" - 2,155
•5'11" - 2,125
•6'0" - 2,095
•6'1" - 2,067
•6'2" - 2,039
•6'3" - 2,011
•6'4" - 1,985

Multiple your miles by steps and you have a rough estimate. An estimate is better than none.

Happy Gazelling!!!
