Another item to ponder

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear he still wrong?

Things to Ponder

That little yellow round guy with eyes at the left hand side of my blog sure comes up with some things to ponder doesn't he? I like the one : Before they invented the drawing board what did they use to go back to?

Another diet fad?

I was just recently in the checkout line at my local grocery store and saw a headline for the Turbo Zone Diet on the front of one of the magazines. It stated "Dr Sears reveals the natural compound that makes your body release 'toxic fat'. I decided I just had to research this more. There was just enough information in the article to peak my interest. It talks about using super Omega 3 fish oil and following the Zone diet. My vote is still out on this subject as I am awaiting a copy of the book to review for myself.

getting older

I was just realizing the other day how fast time flies. I remember thinking when I was a kid that the school year lasted forever, it was a long time until next christmas would roll around etc. Now, it seems like it is the first day of the month and before I know it, it is the end of the month.

My oldest daughter will be 29 years old on New Year's eve. Seems like yesterday she was a pom pom girl in high school. Now she delivers mail in Virginia Beach and is entering fitness competitions. She won first place in this competition. She has a great amount of discipline.
I, on the other hand, after turning the dreaded "50" , have scratched my left eyeball twice within a month (makes it very hard to see or read), have fallen off the riding lawn mower and thought I broke my wrist and now have managed to do something to my back so that when I stand up, I can't straighten up. Hopefully, next year which is fast approaching, will be a less accident prone year for me. I hope to see my daughter compete next year in competition in Chicago which is much closer to my hometown.

Change in Weather!!!!!

Wow, it sure is beginning to feel like Chicago Bear Football Weather. Remember all those freezing games on Soldier field? I'd rather be all wrapped up in the stadium watching the game than freezing my butt off on the field like they are.
