I'm so very greatful for the many Spark Friends I have made, especially in recent months, who have been there for me and who, too, have become friends. To all of you I say a great big THANK YOU, even though many of you may have given up on me as not being here. I am still here, but not as active as I would like because I am so involved in other issues of my life right now.

Happy Spring 2014!

Fitness Minutes: 1,400

My Goals:
1.To eat what I want, but healthy and in moderation.

2. To exercise every day, even if only for 20 minutes. Do the things that I enjoy...that way the exercise will not be a chore, but an enjoyable experience.

3 . To get the help of my SparkFriends to help me keep on track and to help me through whatever issues may arrise. And to sincerely promise to do the same for them.

4. To try to keep as positive a mental outlook as possible, whenever possible, to help myself with my problems with depression.

My Program:
See "My Goals" for an outline of "My Program."

Personal Information:
Most of my day is spent at work, so lets start there. I work in the Financial District of Manhattan, NY. I am a licensed Insurance Broker by profession and have been doing this for over 41 years. I plan on retiring sometime after March of 2014.

I live on the South Shore of Long Island (now you know where my User Name "SOUTHSHOREGUY"came from) and enjoy the immense difference between work in the city to living in an area near the seashore. After retirement, I plan on selling my house and buying a Condo on Long Island's North Fork, known for it's almost 60 Vineyards and over 20 wineries that are open to the public and which have tasting bars. I'm already hooked up with a Real Estate Agent in Cutchogue in helping me on my search.

Other Information:
I love Broadway Shows, but I enjoy acting even more. My last several acting jobs were at professional New York Regional Theatres doing Boardway Revivals. It's so nice to be paid for doing what you love! I absolutely love viewing an audience from the stage. I haven't been on the stage for a number of years now, due to health issues of mine and of my family, but I know that I will get back to this one day soon. It is going to take a lot of studying and practice of my monologues and songs from Musical Comedies, but I will get there. Auditions--here I come! Eventually!

I am also a professional Photographer with specialties in Weddings, Portraiture, Children, and Babies. My website is currently being updated. Once it is completed, I might post it here for those that may be interested.

    Hi Bill,
    Sinterklaas is a traditional children's celebration where a wise man from Spain and his helpers bring presents for children that have been good all year.
    If they have been bad, the parents threaten the children that Sinterklaas will take them back to Spain with him in his sack.
    It's nott as bad as it sounds, it's just traditional.

    emoticon I am starting to feel better. The counseling FEMA is giving me for the PTSD is really helping. I still am not sure if I can rebuild, not sure if ground can handle the weight of stilts-waiting on FEMA again emoticon also waiting to see if I will have enough funds to rebuild between my insurance company and the grants I have applied for.

    I am praying emoticon NJ does not get another direct hit this year. FEMA seems to feel we will be hit with a huge Nor'Easter this year and not a hurricane.

    Hope you stay safe from any storms in your neck of the woods.

    Hi, I Haven't been in touch lately. I just wanted to say that I did complete my testimony for you. Thank you for inspiring and encouraging me to write about myself. I've not written so personally about myself on this site previously so this was a first.
