My Goals for BLC26 (and my other challenges)
Monday, September 22, 2014      11 comments

I know I have been uncharacteristically quiet for awhile. I feel that I owe an apology to my Spark friends, particularly anyone who has reached out to me, but I have not responded. A lot of stuff has been going on, and I can't share all of it ... Read more
Fitbit Comes Through Again
Wednesday, February 05, 2014      16 comments

My Fitbit One died Monday night. I put it in the charger, and since then it will not display. While in the charger it displays "Fitbit 6.60" (I think this is the firmware version) and shows that the battery is fully charged. When I remove it,... Read more

A friend shared this link with me, and I think it is such a great cause that I am doing the same. Right now Intuit is running a contest for small businesses. The prize is a commercial during the Super Bowl. I know that Sparkpeople has ch... Read more

No, nothing bad has happened to me. But has anyone seen the news about the fire in Seaside Heights, NJ? Less than a year after Hurricane Sandy? After listening to commercials all summer about how we (New Jerseyans) are "stronger than the stor... Read more
An Afternoon at the Mall
Tuesday, July 23, 2013      10 comments

I am not big into shopping in the mall. In recent years, I have come to dislike it. I've never been a compulsive buyer/spender, and at this point I can't afford to be. When my kids were little we would sometimes go out and walk around a mall ... Read more

The start of BLC is a lot like New Year's Day. New beginnings, etc. This round will be very different for me because I am on a new team after five rounds on the same team. I am very much looking forward to this new experience. My last rou... Read more

Thanks to everyone who commented on my blog. So, so appreciated. It seems like he has actually improved since I wrote the blog. I am not going to delude myself to think that he is "all better". I know he is only going to get worse. Bu... Read more

BLC21 - Next 4 Weeks
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      8 comments

It is no secret that this has not been a good round for me. I have become unexpectedly extremely busy. For the last few years I have been either unemployed or working in jobs where I haven't been too busy most of the time. This gave me plenty... Read more
