  • Incentive

    8/31/2015 12:11:31 PM, by NEPTUNE1939

    How can losing be a winner? Answer: Letting whiney adults set the rules. 40 From what I've seen walking the streets are too many non-productive millennials. A good kick in the rump by a drill sergeant just might be the right incentive for them to become a winner. 104... Read more

  • Injuries

    8/27/2015 2:47:24 PM, by NEPTUNE1939

    HOW TRUE Of coarse you could be sitting doing nothing and get knocked out your chair in an earthquake, car crashing into your living room, a small plane careening into your house, etc. 334 But still, if you do get injured exercising, its a better war story to reflect upon. 244 ... Read more

    Ever wonder what your BMI is? With an accuracy of 98-percent Fat Calipers are a great way to find out. They are much better than a scale to determine health as body weight fluctuates on a daily basis. That can be very discouraging; especially if you weigh yourself daily. 39 Anything b... Read more

    8/23/2015 2:28:20 PM, by NEPTUNE1939

    Well Sparkers I bought 6-yards of compost from the Dep't of Forestry & now the challenge is to spread it below our trees to preserve the moisture around the drip line. 244 With today's elevated temps I'll be having a few cold beers after this exercise. 334 386 my friends. 213... Read more

  • What I am proud of this week...

    8/21/2015 6:26:55 PM, by MISSMISSY

    We had my family reunion two weeks ago. Since we were out of town on Sunday, I didn't weigh in. Had a not so good week of eating during and after the reunion and when I got on the scale last Sunday...guess what...4 extra pounds had reappeared! That was the push I needed. Over the past 10 months I ... Read more

    8/21/2015 2:36:45 PM, by NEPTUNE1939

    In snow country to preserve your trees its suggested that you have 4 to 6 inches of mulch surrounding the trunk and drip line.

    OK Sparkers. Today I completed planting our last 3-foot Sequoia complete with a drip system. But a drip system is not very functional during the winter.
