Forty-two years ago, I was born into a very religious family. As I grew, I was taught the morals, principles and traditions of my inherited religion. They helped shape and mold me into a model child, with strong spiritual conviction. I knew all ... Read more

God! What a year! I think it's probably been the worst 365 days I can ever remember in my time here on this earth. I'm broke. I lost my house and my dog died. But I must say the hardest one was my wife of 21 years coming out to me that she was ... Read more

It's been a while since my last blog. A long while in fact. It seems that life decided to blindside me on a few different fronts and has served to distract me from sharing my journey with my Sparkfriends. For this I apologize. I will say that th... Read more

I have done a lot of things in my life. Maybe not circumnavigate the globe, or wrestled alligators in a traveling circus side show while juggling chainsaws. But I have had some very interesting and memorable experiences though. Recently I set ou... Read more

Things in my life have been, shall we say, a bit topsy turvy. With so much upheaval and change it's a wonder I can find any time or motivation to exercise at all. When I stop to think about everything that goes on in my day, it's hard to imagine... Read more

The other day was just one of those days. It was stressful and filled with thoughts of blah! It's been raining for the last 2 weeks straight, which makes us here in California very grumpy. Kinda throws your whole additude off kilter. It left me ... Read more
