Look who visited me for Easter

                                                                                                           

During the snowstorm, one of my trees fell against the wood fence creating an opening that Penny insists on using as a gate. So for now the dogs are spending a lot more time in the house than any of us like. (especially the cat!)

The United States will not torture

After a full day of work, I sat down to check my email while the microwave was warming dinner. Turning on the TV, President Obama was speaking at the State Department earlier in the day. These were the first words I heard, "First, I can say without exception or equivocation that the United States will not torture."

20 January 2009

I have a $25 small black & white TV that I keep in my office. I bought it at the HQs store probably 10 years ago. More than anything I was drawn to it because it cost $25 dollars; I was amused that I could buy a TV set for $25.

Randall's Tree dedication Nov 4

Nov 4 was a big day for me, so I am going to have 2 posts. In 2006, Randall Hollis, a co-worker, passed away suddenly. We were all shocked and upset by his loss. Randall was his own indvidiual, unique in many ways. Not long after his death, George and Jill, 2 of his co-workers, came to me with the idea of planting a tree in Randall's memory.

More on my illness - Week of 11-21 July

Week of 11-21 July

First, the week of 11-18 July I determined to do something about my weight. It has been 5 years since the cancer and I was feeling strong enough that I could finally face the challenge and discipline of weight loss. I talked about my several options for approaching this with my dear friend and chiropractor, Dawn, and she really encourage me to be under medical supervision for the diet, with my past history. That made sense to me too; I went to see a Dr that she recommended. The diet made sense too, while it was a drastic reduction in calories, the food was all good and followed good nutrition practices. I mainly had to give up empty calories, diet soda, breads, most diary, etc. The diet actually was using the same food groups I need to eat for my blood type. So starting 11 July, I went cold turkey with diet sodas and chocolate from diet. I suffered caffeine and general food withdrawal, but everyday got better. Even though the food withdrawals were strong, I also had to admit that I was never hungry.
