You left some great comments on my blog -- it's OK if it doesn't make popular blog, I just like to introduce thought provoking ideas into as many people as I can, and blogging is a way of doing it.

So glad to hear that you finally got outside and enjoyed nature (I hope)... But I am sorry that you developed shin splints, try taking it a little easier as you get used to trekking outside, it's definitely NOT like walking the treadmill...
I did get a bike, but not a stationary one... It's a hybrid, a cross between a road bike and a mountain bike... Haven't had the opportunity to ride it yet, perhaps this weekend.
I'm also glad that you're reading The Thirteenth Tale also! Hope you like it, am really interested in your review...
Regarding racquetball: I don't know if you enjoy court sports, but if you do and you want to try rb, take a few lessons first! Don't want you getting bashed in the eye or something... When you're ready, find someone who's a "B" player or above to teach you, OK?
I really enjoy keeping in touch with you and reading your "Weekly Wrap-ups". I commend you on your stick-to-itivness, you among a very few are an inspiration to me, so thank you...
Had to spend a couple of days in the hospital last weekend, I ask that you keep me in your prayers as you go about your day, right now I'm looking at a possible angiogram in the next few weeks, hoping I won't have to have it though...
