I'm a 70 year old married male who lives in New Hampshire.

BTW, "Boppy" is what my Grandson started calling me when he was 2 years old. He's now 13. He dubbed, my wife, Beth, "Mimi", about the same time. He still calls us by these names, today. And, so we shall both be known by the family ...

Pet peeves: censorship and wading through religious blather (pardon the redundancy) to get to any topic!

I had reached a goal weight of 180, had a succession of surgeries (shoulder/arm, abdominal wall, back), started weight lifting again, raised my goal weight to 185. Then I had new problems with my other shoulder/arm, and back, and had to stop weight lifting and some other exercises. I've lowered my goal weight again to 180, and am adjusting to the new required caorie budget reduction -- especially sinve much exercise is off the table, again.

    You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
    Happy Independence Day!
