    Well, no more snow, just watching it melt... gone down at least a foot and a half as measured against my fence. Got a call from an 86 y.o. from my book club asking if I would take her to an eye doc appt. So, I took her to my Bible study first and then we went there. I showed her the "knitted ... Read more

    I have noticed fewer migraines in the past two weeks, though I am still getting headaches... just not migraines. There is a difference in intensity between the two. So, I guess the experiment may end up being a success. I will continue for the full 30 days and then the reintroduction phase to be ... Read more

    After a very prolonged absence from Spark, I am starting over yet again. 2015 and 2016 have got to go down as the worst years of my life so far.

However, jumping in head first and going full out, at least for me, leads to head trauma...ie burnout. There is no one racing you(well unless you join a challenge with someone) to be healthy...
