Viewing Venus and Jupiter These Past Few Nights
Friday, July 17, 2015      6 comments

I've taken my high-powered binoculars out and had some nice views of both planets. However, there are other planets that I can't find yet that are also out right now. Saturn. A great website is www.earthsky.org; it provides terrific info... Read more
Correcting My Awful Posture
Thursday, July 16, 2015      9 comments

Too much work time on the computer, combined with overall laziness (I guess), has caused a definite decline in my posture. I know there are things you can buy to remind you to straighten up. ( band type things) I'll just have to do it on my o... Read more
Feeding My Blueberry Addiction
Wednesday, July 15, 2015      13 comments

For the past few weeks, blueberries have been specially priced at $1.99 for 18 oz in a nearby store. I won't even say how many I've eaten (lbs, not berries). I love them so much and they are seasonal. As a result, I've gotten an allergi... Read more
Gas Prices, Pluto Fly-By, Misc.
Tuesday, July 14, 2015      11 comments

I'm laughing as I sit here typing this at 5:25 a.m. on Tuesday morning. I awoke extra early to partake in the Pluto fly-by forgetting that it would be a token celebration with NASA team via their TV internet site. Because it takes about 9 hour... Read more
When Life Hands You Carrots, Make...
Monday, July 13, 2015      6 comments

...carrot soup. (smiling) In the spirit of experimentation with my Vitamix, I decided to use some of the veggies that were getting a bit old. One was a small bag of baby carrots; I threw them in the blender and added tomatoes, celery, onion a... Read more
Pineapple Sorbet
Sunday, July 12, 2015      9 comments

At least that's what I call it, without adding anything other than some fresh (but slightly overripe) pineapple spears and ice. Turned out creamy and refreshingly delish. Some of you may remember a couple of years ago, when I debated wheth... Read more
First Pics of Pluto & Advil/Alleve Warning
Saturday, July 11, 2015      9 comments

Amazing photos of Pluto have begun to arrive and can be seen at www.nasa.gov/newhorizons. Yesterday's new warnings about the danger of Advil and Aleve are scary. I don't take any meds, other than for pneumonia or similar. However, if thes... Read more

For those who love all things celestial, planet Pluto (and its moon Cheron - 3X bigger than ours) will be visible courtesy of a probe that has taken 9 years and 3 BILLION miles for its journey that will culminate with a 100-second window. Durin... Read more
Reverse Reward System
Tuesday, July 07, 2015      11 comments

I make myself laugh sometimes; I'm thinking of giving myself a reward now for reaching goal in December. While that seems ridiculous, I am good at keeping the commitments I make to myself and that would be the deal. Does anyone else do this? ... Read more
Five Years Ago Today...
Friday, July 03, 2015      10 comments

My dear cousin (in black top) departed. Doesn't seem possible it could be that long. I've missed her so much. Wishing all a happy, healthy 4th.... Read more
I'm a Sucker for Beef Hot Dogs
Thursday, July 02, 2015      14 comments

I know, I know. All the yucky stuff about hot dogs. But there's nothing like a grilled dog with mustard and sauerkraut. The trick of it is, for me, not to eat four. (smiling) Wishing all a happy, healthy 4th weekend.... Read more
Sugar, Caffeine, Fitbit, Shoulder Pain, Fair Food
Sunday, June 28, 2015      11 comments

I thought it was about time for an update. I'm doing terrific with no sugar. That is, no added sugar other than what's in some food already. No desserts or similar. I don't want any and don't crave sugar. As a blueberry and watermelon addic... Read more
Back to Food Tracking Again
Thursday, June 18, 2015      14 comments

Yes, I've really gotta track my food to buckle down and stop this foolishness that I've had going on for awhile now. I've blogged about my erroneous thinking several times; that I exercise a lot and feel entitled to eat whatever, whenever, and ... Read more
Why Do I Sometimes Want to Take a SP Break?
Wednesday, June 17, 2015      7 comments

I really don't spend a lot of time on this website. However, I do support it by buying SP products, responding to SP friends' blogs, etc. But I really don't know why I feel tethered by it. I guess partly because I don't do any social me... Read more
Personalized Coke Bottles, Mangos, Sugar, Misc. Topics
Monday, June 15, 2015      11 comments

I never drink soda, but the other day I almost bumped into a store display that immediately caught my attention. Seeing personalized Coca Cola bottles, I started seeking one with my name on it and thought I'd buy it just for fun. Of course, I ... Read more
