Still working at cranking up an old team, Urban Gardeners, but a couple of others could use work as well: Organic Gardening and Environmentalists. I seem to be the only person active on anything but the community feed. I picked up a couple of gr... Read more

Any Urban Gardeners Out There? You know who you are - that person who may not have a plot but can put together a pot or two to grow plants and flowers. I'm dealing with several ability issues as well as a time issue. While I would love to have a... Read more

It's getting really warm here but I'm getting in my walk and bicycle work every day including Sunday. I made two massive food bobbles last week but I'm paying for them with extra work. My appetite is almost nil since my surgery so most days have... Read more

Came home 6 weeks ago from knee replacement at one of my highest weights ever but thank God I've lost 19 pounds. I'm going back to work in 10 days and want to lose 20 by then, at least. I've walked a full mile once but I'm not quite ready for th... Read more

Following my accident just over a year ago, I was diagnosed with mTBI, PCS, and PseudoBulbar Affect, which is a kind way of saying my brain got all shook up. It has been a long year, peppered with physical therapy, neurologist/neuropsychologist ... Read more

I've had enough energy today to get most of what I didn't get done yesterday, done today-cleaning, etc. The back of my right hand is wall to wall green but my back is starting to lose the soreness. When I see the PA in about a month, I wil... Read more

Went for epidural injections yesterday with mixed results so far. IV infiltrated and sedation went into my hand so naturally I didn't stay still when the needles hit-all four of them. At least it was over pretty quick. Today I have a sore hand a... Read more
Dusted Off the Treadmill
Sunday, January 10, 2016      5 comments

When we remodeled 3+ years ago, the fancy treadmill out in the garage got folded up and pushed against the wall and I gained 20 pounds. Maybe these two facts are related, maybe not. Anyway, this morning I got my rear in gear and scooted that suc... Read more
