I'm hoping I'm not "popping anyone's bubble" here, but has anyone noticed the "practice of hijacking a post?" I really can't be the only one who has noticed this. It works like this; person #1 puts up a post stating "I like to talk to people from other countries." Then, at some point, someone makes a post in response to person # 1's post that states, "I like blueberry pie." What the heck does BLUEBERRY PIE have to do with "talking to people in different countries?????" NOTHING AT ALL!!!! If other people then continue in the direction of "blueberry pie,, apple pie, peach pie, how about them Dodgers? etc.", the post has been sucessfully "hijacked." I've seen this happen time and time again. Is it fair or polite behavior? No, in my opinion. In fact, I think it is just plain rude. The person who posted the original topic is entitled to the common courtesy of their post being responded to pertaining to the topic they raised in the first place. Those who wish to discuss "other topics" might wish to discuss those other topics privately, or open another post. Just my thoughts, no offense intended.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
