Welcome to our place! Relax with us by the pool and watch the puppies romp. Come take a walk with me at sunrise and sunset--the sky here goes on forever! No wonder they decorate with pink and blue in Florida--that's the color of the vast cloud mounds in the sky, where the lightning plays at any time of day. You never know what might be going on around here, but good food, friends, characters, physical activity, and my thoughts, goals, and interests of the moment are going to be part of it.

My Goals:
When I first joined SparkPeople 14 years ago, I think, I'd seen my weight creeping up and decided that I needed to be more aware of what I was eating and how much I was exercising.

Well, it just happened again!

Having a weekly restaurant news column in the local paper is NOT a great method of self-control.

Note to self: It's never okay to just eat and drink whatever you damn please!

My Program:
Make sure to eat at least SOME breakfast every day, for a kick-start!

Walk a total of 5 miles, 10,000 steps, a day.

Eat only when hungry and stop when full. (This is NOT easy, by the way.)

Do daily pilates-type exercises to keep my hips and back limber.

Upper-body weight training every other day.

Personal Information:
71, with an emotional age of about 36


Went from 172 in February 2005 to a low of 111 several summers ago (much too low for me)

Now aiming to keep off a recently re-lost 20 pounds, mainly to fit into more of my clothes and have a flatter tummy.

This, too, isn't always easy, because of the abovementioned newspaper gig and Bill's great cooking.

Other Information:
My passions lately are writing and getting to be expert in the local restaurant scene. Retirement is proving far busier than full-time employment, if less lucrative.

    This is really the biggest mistake I have had. I have been so busy and tired from work that I skipped blogging. Also it feels like sometimes there isn't that much to say Hope you are well?

    Yup, that's it. You didn't sense the dismal air of foreboding and gloom?? I felt depressed by the place but I can weather it due to the prices. Thanks for the article -- captured much of what it's about, as I saw in Ireland.

    Wait, What?! Are you back?? Hope you are doing well with your 10 pounds. I have missed our old crowd. Unami never shows up and some of the others (Karen the writer) have kinda evaporated.

    I think our idiot is worse that theirs. If we are having a presidential idiot contest I'm fairly confident we can win after hearing the Mueller results. At any rate I'm ready for a new idiot. One who is camera shy and doesn't crave attention, Russians, or prostitutes. I want to turn on the T.V. without having to look at a Troll Doll.
