B is for Breakfast
Wednesday, April 11, 2012     

It's my favorite meal of the day. I start everyday with a delicious meal. Furthermore, what Mom told us about breakfast being the most important meal of the day is so true. It sets us up for the rest of the day, gets us through that tough time w... Read more
A is for Age
Tuesday, April 10, 2012     

Age ain’t nothing but a number. Seriously. Go with either that birthday, your calculated “body age,” or simply roll the dice! A lot of people will lie downward on their age. "I'm a little over 50." OK, 58 is a little over 50, right? My mom... Read more
Hitting the Street again.
Monday, April 09, 2012     

All my whining aside. I got back on the street today. I almost didn't go. My routine of late has been, on Monday and Wednesday, to run to the Y, meet the trainer, run home, do chores and such, and after lunch go for a medium length run. I h... Read more

Good Friday. Baseball Opening Day. Weight Loss.
Friday, April 06, 2012     

And how they might tie together. I was a busy guy today. I had certain benchmarks I wanted to hit on my attic cleanout project and I made good progress. But I was too busy to track. Of course it was Good Friday, a day of Fast and Abs... Read more
A hoarder's nightmare.
Thursday, April 05, 2012     

We will be getting central air conditioning this summer. Hooray! No more back breaking chore of dragging out the window units every May. They seem to get heavier every year. The down side is, the way they do them now is to put a... Read more

Physical therapy is working
Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I hope I didn't blow up a busy day

Diner Fare for Breakfast.
Monday, April 02, 2012     

I love diner fare for breakfast. It's bad for my heart. It doesn't really fit into my new lifestyle, but, hey, I still like it. Don't eat it any more, but I do have a recurring dream ... ... Read more
Left something behind
Sunday, April 01, 2012     

I suffer from a moderate to severe case of RLS. Restless Leg Syndrome. Actually, the L should be for Limb because it afflicts my arms to. When I get to relaxing to go to sleep, my legs and arms have a nearly uncontrollable urge to move... Read more
A few impossible quotes
Sunday, April 01, 2012     

We must believe in what we are doing when we take on a challenge. Some challenges appear very large, almost impossible. And as I said many times, my motto comes from St Francis of Assisi: "Start by dong what is necessary, then do what is po... Read more
Nobody's perfect
Saturday, March 31, 2012     

“I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a '... Read more
