I think the El Nino condition they have been predicting has begun as we've gotten more rain than usual in the last few weeks. It's wonderful, and I hope it continues so it will mitigate the effects of this long and scary drought. Our city save... Read more

Thursday, December 17, 2015      13 comments

Do I eat the fuzzy outside? I don't think so. (smiling) I'll google it, but I'm sure a SP friend will pop over to my blog and tell me. I know the magic formula for myself in 2016 that will really melt the lbs away. Limiting bread, pasta... Read more
Walking While Bundled Up and Frost Covering Yards/Cars
Wednesday, December 16, 2015      7 comments

I have been thinking of my SP friends nationwide who routinely bundle up to exercise in snow and other cold conditions. Frankly, I look ridiculous with layers of clothing, a scarf, ski hat, etc. BTW, I'm in San Diego, where everyone thinks is ... Read more

I have walked the length of the Nile River, according to the Fitbit badge I received today. 4,132 miles. Not sure when I started w/FB, maybe 1.5 years ago? Persimmon taste bud jury came in with a verdict; although I don't hate them, they'... Read more
Fibromyalgia - Ben Fuchs' Interesting Blog Information
Wednesday, December 09, 2015      13 comments

Years ago, a doc tried to tell me I had fibromyalgia and that I'd have it all my life. Sorry, but I just didn't buy that, and worked hard to eliminate the symptoms that had brought me into that medical office. Ben Fuchs is a pharmacist w... Read more

Sunday, December 06, 2015      9 comments

I've never had persimmons, but got some this morning at the new store where I wrote about the low prices on fresh freggies. I figured I'd try them since they were practically free. (smiling) Gasping audibly when I saw the raspberries that are ... Read more

Friday, December 04, 2015      12 comments

I got a scented candle yesterday and, yes, it smells just like the donut mentioned above. Fortunately, it doesn't make me hungry or want to run for junk. A friend told me last night that he was going to get me a Bonsai Tree for Christmas, ... Read more

Schools Checking to See if I'm Allowed to Make an Appearance as Santa
Tuesday, December 01, 2015      8 comments

Sad, but true. I contacted a few schools where I know people and volunteered to make an appearance in my new Santa suit. They are currently checking to see if that would be allowed. I'm so glad I was raised at a time before all this PC cr... Read more
