    On Saturday we went to a big birthday party with lots of appies. That day I ate light, and prepared my snack to take along, string cheese and apple slices 180 calories, leaving room for birthday cake. We left the house with so much stuff (music stand, guitar, gifts, appies, wine, etc.) we decided to... Read more

  • December is a time for giving

    12/2/2019 1:08:32 PM, by OLDEROWL

    I had so much to be thankful for last week and enjoyed Thanksgiving with my wife while on vacation in Hawaii.

  • All I did in November was read and run!

    12/2/2019 10:40:08 AM, by CINCMAC

    I switched from road running to trail running in September after a friend talked me into doing a 12-hour endurance run with her. I've found a new love. After 10 years of running off and on -- quiting becuase I'd get bored and then missing it and starting back -- I have truly found a passion for run... Read more

But Im putting that behind me...Im moving on with new goa... Read more

    12/2/2019 8:03:09 AM, by VHAYES04

    I save my change; it’s a thing I started when I first got married. I save it from vacation time to vacation time and I have enough to spend. Saturday I had two cups to add to my collection so I discovered I had a thief! The jar was half full last time I’d put money in it and this is what they left.... Read more

    The family reunion was fun but my children and grandchildren could not come so it was not the cat's meow, but fun.

    So it's December now!! I can't believe it! The countdown to Christmas is on! I got a few gifts so far, but not as far as I want.
