My Goals:
Okay. Something personal. 10 years of severe health difficulties. Still messed-up but not as much as before. Too many bad meds. General health and metabolism shot. Past: bit too thin, working too hard, not eating. Present goals: learning what and how to eat and how to sleep. Movement and balance again. Straightening out the metabolic disaster. Learning I have a body.

Phase II, 3 months later: General health and metabolism good; a little underweight. Current goals: maintain and improve overall wellness with this new awareness SP has helped me with, continue the struggle for sleep. Gain some more muscles!

I'm back to Spark after gaining back almost half what I previously lost. I'm glad you are still here.

Thank you for the virtual laptop. I'm sure that's the harbinger of good news for future computing. I'm glad you did the back up. Don't forget now. The loss on this end -- (pick one of the following): catastrophic or devastating.

Hi Petalia, I'm in a quiet phase right now, brought on by a big tech crash on the homefront. Much trouble to use this phone. Happy Sunday and Aloha. S

Exciting soup. That's what I like. But I always eat my beet peels and stems.

I'm glad you told me about the cruciferous bitter backlash in the stockpot. Hmm, I just froze some kale stems. Maybe I'll use them for something else.

Oh, but she peeled the garlic and onions, of course. She saves the peels and bits in a gallon bag in the freezer until it's full and uses them to make soup stock. Her hint: go to the hardware store and buy paint straining bags -- much cheaper -- and use them to seive the bits and peels from the stock.
