Day 190: Photo Blog #9
Saturday, July 09, 2011      6 comments

Today is another 'twofer' - "A picture that motivates you to do more" and the second, "A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most." I'll address the second one first. (You know how it is, marching to the beat of a different... Read more

Well, it should've been easy: "A picture that makes you laugh." The trouble is there are so many! Here's the way my mind works. But I wanted something all the S... Read more

Today's blog: "A picture of your most treasured item." Come along with me as we take a trip on The Train of Thought. My most treasured item... Now, I've been trying to pare down my materialistic attachments. Part of that stems from th... Read more

Damocles was a minor official at the court of Dionysius II, a ruler in Italy, in the 4th century BC. Fawning over his king, Damocles raved about how lucky Dionysius was - power, wealth, everything at his command, and surrounded by all the luxuri... Read more

Today's blog assignment is another double-header: the first is "A picture of your favorite animal." That one is easy. My favorite animal is a dog. Any dog. Every dog. To paraphrase Will Rogers, I never met a dog I didn't like. To be su... Read more
Day 186: AM Blog

Just a quickie. I've had a few people comment and email about the photo blog themes, where I found them and so on. The original list I read was a suggestion on the WeBlog team. Here's a link to that thread: www.sparkpeople... Read more
Day 185: Photo Blog #4
Monday, July 04, 2011      10 comments

Today's assignment: "A picture of the cast of your favorite TV show; and a picture of your favorite color." This strikes me as a little odd - the pairing, that is, not the 'items' themselves. Kind of sounds as though someone couldn't make ... Read more
Day 184: Photo Blog #3
Sunday, July 03, 2011      9 comments

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but it still doesn't explain everything. I mean, it's complicated. Day #3 is supposed to be "A picture of your inspiration for weight loss." At first, I thought this is the one to post: ... Read more

The second assignment is: "A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest." Now, that's an interesting one. What I would've liked to have done is use a picture of me with my brother. Sadly, he died nearly forty years... Read more

Thursday, June 30, 2011      6 comments

Someone is coming to view the house on Saturday. (Don't hold your breath - I'm not, haha.) Himself is still having the PITN (pain in the neck) problem so I forbade him to go around moving stuff and pushing the vacuum and - dare I say it - workin... Read more
Day 180: Eileen's Story
Wednesday, June 29, 2011      11 comments

Some time back, I said that I was reading a book written by a high-school classmate, and that I would blog about it when I was finished. I've since reread it several times. It's ...well, it's quite a story. Quite an autobiography. It's called "T... Read more
Day 179: Fun Stuff
Tuesday, June 28, 2011      5 comments

I'm still going thru the old newspapers that are available online. Theoretically, I can instruct the computer (get a load of that: ME, the computer illiterate, telling the computer what to do, lol) to search for a phrase like 'John Brown,' and i... Read more

"The future comes one day at a time." --Dean Acheson In the last week or so I've had three people drop me notes about seeing my before-n-after pix and reading my story. They've been extraordinarily kind, and I blush to confess one of them s... Read more

Sunday, June 26, 2011      17 comments

Friday was Himself's birthday - he turned 66, if you can believe that. It's hard to believe, because he acts like he's about 16. If that, lol. Our rule is that the bi... Read more
