Use that microwave oven
Monday, February 06, 2012     

I remember the Christmas my mom got her first microwave oven. Back in the early 1970s, microwave ovens were the next big thing in cooking. Everything could be cooked in a flash. Mom even tried to cook her turkey in it. Yeah. We had spaghett... Read more

... why I feel like I do today. I am feeling a little blah. Not like a cold or flu is coming on. So that's not it. I am not in pain from my recovery, so it's not that I am rushing things. When I went to fix dinner, I turned to She... Read more

Tuesday, January 31, 2012     

... just pathetic. Back in November I had an epiphany. The Half Marathon was my distance. No more than that. In both marathons (Baltimore and Savannah) as well as training runs of 17, 20, and 23 miles, an incredible feeling of "Good Go... Read more

... or so I am told. But I don't seem to be any good at it. She(WMBO) says something twice and boom it gets done. I say it over and over and over and over .... you get the picture and I always get the same results. Maybe nagging is one of t... Read more

It has been nine days since I had shoulder surgery. I saw my doctor on Wednesday and we discussed my recovery. He allowed as how I definitely would be ready for the Rock 'n' Roll USA Half Marathon in Washington, DC on March 17. He then gav... Read more

How many of you wear earbuds when you work out? "I never wear them when I run." Yeah, right. I call it. I know you're not supposed to, but everyone does it. I think that the iPod and its imitators were the single biggest influence to the r... Read more

I am usually a pretty nice guy. But when my patience wears off, woe be unto you. I can get really nasty. A couple of years ago I was given a copy of Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friend and Influence People by She(WMBO). Just was she trying to... Read more
