    Wednesday, September 17, 2008 | A Positive story

    As I watch our stock market tumbling I find myself feeling cynical, how did these folks get us IN to this mess!  I then remember one of the the coolest coolest things about my job....THE PEOPLE...I get inspired all over again and I have to think we will all be ok.  When I do talks in schools or community groups I tell kids about the long haul medicine entails&nb...

    Thu 08, November 2012
    A tremendous thirst for knowledge isn't being quenched. You're tired of letting your creative impulses lay fallow for the sake of drudgery. Unfortunately, you can't abandon your responsibilities altogether. That means it's time to change your priorities.

    I bought a cool pedometer that is also a wrist watch and heart rate monitor. It is encouraging me to set mini goals and succeed in them. I have it figured out on how many steps make up a mile and I am trying to get up to 5 miles a day. 3 of those I am power walking and keeping my heart rate up.
    I am hoping it starts showing on the scales. I am so close to my first goal of 250 lbs. I am like 2 oz ...

Now off to the zoo to talk to the mgr. to see what fear I can face and pet a elephant or giraff...

  • Finally a bright light

    Friday, November 15, 2013 | A Positive story

    Well after posting my truck for sale (been sitting for almost 6 months) I couldn't work on it anymore due to my neck and back. I got an email from someone interested in it. I had to put the battery back in and start it up. It ran great.. It sat up due to a knocking noise coming from the transmission when clutch was engaged, only went away when the clutch was pressed in. 
    Well I started it up...
