01/15/2014 - Found out that I'm gonna be a granddad again(no. 12).

08/07/2013 - Going to see grandson Tad and his wife Kimmy tomorrow for dessert, and to find out what gender our great grandchild is... Call me GREAT grandpa now....

07/18/2013 - Looking forward to flying up to Seattle WA. to see our sone Pete & his girlfriend Jeanette...

09/23/2011 - Well, it's official... We (my wife and I) are new empty-nesters now... Moved my 26yr old son Pete up to Seattle 3 wks ago and now we're in this big ol' house by ourselves... So far so good, spending some time consoling my wife cuz she misses her baby, but that's what I'm here for... Got a job at the end of August, working for S. Bernardino County. Outdoors, very physical, and I enjoy it! It's cut into my workouts BIG time which is a challenge, but it'll work out... Have gained about 8lbs, but am confident I'll be back on track to 168 soon...

01/27/12 - Still up around 181 lbs and still struggling to find quality workout time... Only playing racquetball about once every other week, and that just kills me! Thought that having Fridays off would help, but it seems that that's the only time I have for doctor's appointments, auto maintenance, doing the wash, grocery shopping, etc.... Something will break though, and I WILL be back on track!

11/09/12 - Now I've gained another 9 lbs!! Still trying to find time to do workouts... Again, it's sporadic at best. The hours I put in at work don't help, but something's gonna happen! At least I've started getting on track with the food consumption thing...

My Goals:
Had two types of cancers at the end of 2006 into 2007... Went through surgery for one, and chemo/radiation for the other... Was pronounced in remission July 2007, and still cancer free... Figured that eating right and being healthy are a couple of ways to perhaps avoid getting sick again, found Spark People... I am currently at 185 lbs. I basically track my food intake,and watch/change/adjust my eating habits which seems to be a large part of the process. I aim for a minimum 4 days a week of cardio, with 2 days of strength training.

My Program:
Using Sparkpeople Nutrition and Fitness pages to help keep me on track... Constantly reading food labels!! Search the internet to find tables on nutritional values of different foods to help me make smarter choices. I try to walk/run a minimum 4 days a week, and play racquetball at least 2 days (competitive). Weight/strength training.

Hi Ted!

I'm the one who is always late in replying! If I don't do it right away I tend to forget. I hope you find relief with your knee/heel pain soon or find other forms of exercise that don't bother it. Maybe swimming, bicycling, or the elliptical?

I'm hanging onto the 130s by a thread, but so glad to be there. And I would love to reach the 120s too in good time.

I still haven't found my standout book of the summer. I finally read the much-recommended The Once and Future King, and it did not live up to expectations. I'm currently reading Flowers for Algernon - a story about medical experimentation and living with a disability - and this one has pleasantly surprised me.

I haven't read a lot of those books you mentioned, and a lot are on my list. I haven't read The Lord of the Rings series or Jurassic Park yet. I put The Thirteenth Tale on hold at the library. It sounds interesting. I hope to read it and get back with you soon!

Hi there! Thanks for dropping by my page. I have been reading a lot this summer. Currently re-reading I, Claudius. It has political intrigue, murders, assassinations, and the most unlikely hero overcoming. It is a great book if you've never read it.

I also just wrote a blog on what I read in July. You're welcome to take a look. I am a little frustrated that I still haven't found my favorite book of the summer yet. Lots of good books, but none that left me breathless. Last summer it was Love in the Time of Cholera, and the year before Lolita. Although a few books I've read surprised me and turned out better than expected.

If you have a moment, I'd love to hear what you've been reading too. I love to talk about books!

I saw on your feed that you're in pain. I hope that turns out to be nothing. I hope you are otherwise well! Take care of yourself!

Oh the sun came out today...just sad because my 90 year old mother-in-law passed away yesterday. We took care of her in our home for the past year. She had a wonderful life and she was a wonderful person.
