My name is Marty and I am 60. I have joint problems and have 2 new knees. and a new left hip. I also am facing back surgery. I want/need to lose weight so I can live to see my 7 and 4 year old grandchildren grow up. I also want to have the energy to do things with them.

I have moved to the Middle School to teach a self-contained Learning Disabled class of 8th graders for 08-09 after teaching 5k to 2nd grade Exceptional Needs children for 15 years. I teach the core reading , a science class to 6th graders, and re-teach the General Ed math. It is going to be a hectic, challenging, and wonderful year

I am active in two Masonic related bodies - The Order of the Eastern Star (where I have been the top state officer and now have an International appointment) and Amaranth (where I am currently a state officer).

I have 1 dog (Daisy) and 2 cats (Simba - a girl and Necroney - a boy). I live on a lake formed by a hydroelectric and nuclear plant. The water stays war

Other Information:
These are my favorites sayings, Bible quotes, things I believe, try to live by. They are part of my perosnal signature.

Today is a Fresh Start. It is a Do Over Day. Choose to Be Happy!

The sun will still come up tomorrow.

Whatever you do or don't do it will NOT be the headlines on the network nightly news.

With GOD all things are possible.

    Hi Marty!

    I haven't seen or heard from you. I hope things are going well.

    I am SO happy that I met someone who has indulged in the truly fine cuisine of Browns BBQ! We have a lake house outside of Camden on Lake Wateree, and every summer we drive from the lake house to eat at Brown's!

    (My husband's mom was originally from Cades.)

    You have a great day!

    Okay, I am officially jealous. I want to see real snow. We live close to the NC mountains, and snow seems to end at the state line!

    I have to ask... Have you ever heard of a itty bitty town called Cades? or even Kingstree? They are just outside of Florence. There is a barbecue place called "Brown's Barbecue," and it is awesome!

    Enough blabbing... you have a great day!
