Sunday, February 09, 2014      13 comments

I saw it on a sparker's blog, but don't remember who or where. Then researched it and reviews are good. Has anyone here used an acupressure mat? I'm interested in it for the massage benefits, but I don't want it to be one of those things that... Read more

Friday, February 07, 2014      19 comments

If you love dogs, don't mind subtitles, and can get into Netflix, try "Quill." I don't remember who, but someone on SP wrote about it and I tried it out. Really cute, touching dog movie. I don't watch much TV (Downton Abbey is about it), ... Read more

Sunday, February 02, 2014      32 comments

I responded to a blog this morning that made me think. Which can be a dangerous thing. (smiling) It was a blog about how hurtful comments in childhood affected us. My immediate recollection was one person close to me at the time during ch... Read more

3 Shocking Things in the Past Week (if you need happy happy, this blog is not it)
Wednesday, January 29, 2014      29 comments

I wrote about the first one last week, but going to repeat it. Shocked me to find out that a male friend whom I hadn’t seen in a few weeks and is the very picture of health, worked his last day on Friday due to diagnosis of throat cancer. ... Read more
Another Marlboro Man Gallops Off into the Sunset. RIP.
Monday, January 27, 2014      21 comments

I remember when I'd look at these ads or watch the commercials and think these Marlboro cowboys were a hunka hunka burnin' love. Now, many of them have died of respiratory issues. Eric Lawson smoked (according to news report) since he wa... Read more

Sunday, January 26, 2014      20 comments

I am still thinking about getting the SP tracker, but not sure that just flashing lights would be enough to motivate me without seeing numbers until I connect on computer. If anyone has both, I'd enjoy hearing what you think about yours.... Read more

All last year, my favorite little grocery store (Fresh and Easy) kept customers updated on whether they were going to close if not bought by an investor. I blogged last year about this; how the groceries were fresh, no preservatives, and totall... Read more
The Downside of Lots of Exercise for Me
Thursday, January 23, 2014      24 comments

I become ravenous. Simply hungry beyond all reason. Might exercise less to be less hungry. Thanks to all for your kind responses to my bad news yesterday. Each friend/relative who hits me with news like that takes on the face of all I'... Read more
