SparkPoints: 137,562

Fitness Minutes: 73,788

My Goals:
To be able to walk up stairs fast without panting. Update June 10th. 2007. I am maintaining at 190.

My Program:
To go slow and steady.

Personal Information:
In Mar. of 2006 I weighed 251. I decided it was time to quit buying larger clothes and do something. My wife was battling high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol count and borderline diabetes and she started watching her food selection and portions. I went from 251 to 237 Jan. 7th. when I found SPARKS. We live on a farm in Northern Ill. We are actively farming. As you can see from my pictures we enjoy flowers, gardening and grandkids. I'm on the LEE COUNTY board for THRIVENT doing volunteer work in the surrounding communities. Very satisfying endeavor.

Other Information:
My latest book I enjoyed was JUNE by Mary Sanders Smith. Published by LINTEL 24 Blake, Middletown, NY 10940. It's a story of summer life in the 1940's on a farm through the eyes of a young niece.

Good morning Lyle! Ron's got all his corn and beans planted. We've been lucky with the rain. He's even got some spraying done. Hope you get your beans planted this week! Good luck to you I know how stressful farming is! Have a great week! :)

Good morning on this Monday morning in May. Thank you for the Spark Goodie and for following my activities. We have not had much rain this spring and it has caused may brush fires. The fire Departments have been busy. I have a very small garden to get planted. I did put 90 plus garlic cloves in last October and they are up about a foot or so now. Tree leaves are busting out all over and spring is doing its thing here after our long hard winter.

I plan on writing a blog when time permits. So happy all my sons were able to come along and two of their wives. Sure happy they get their interest in history from me, very important to know where you came from.

Good morning, SKEETER, on this last Saturday of March 2015. I have been remiss in thanking you for a SparkGoodie that you had sent my way. Thank you for thinking of me. I see that you have been checking out your connection to the Civil War and tracing steps of those who went before you.
