The word DIET.... I hate it! I try my best not to even use it anymore if any other word will fit. I guess I could borrow a page from Zig Ziglar and call it a live-it. I much prefer new eating plan. It is new. I have revamped our whole style of e... Read more

I am still having trouble figuring out how to manipulate this phone. It's almost dangerous to give a 63 year old dyed-in-the-wool country woman a smart phone and insist she learn how to use it. I have made so many hilarious mistakes. One son tel... Read more
