I’m here. Still plugging away at the good life I’ve created for myself with the people I love. That is, in case any of the seven of you that used to read this blog regularly are wondering. I’m still working on the weight loss kick. As of today, I’ve lost 87.25 pounds since I started […]

Bodybugg update…

September 8th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I just got back from the gym, where I had my second bi-weekly weigh-in. So far, by following the Bodybugg program (not the diet portion of it, I’ve been making my own food choices) and exercising at least four days a week for at least thirty minutes per day, I’m down a total of 18.25 […]

Have I mentioned that I’m a big fan of Robert Heinlein? Even in passing? These are quotes from several articles and short stories of his that were collected in his book Expanded Universe.

I don’t know exactly what’s been keeping me from writing for the blog, lately. I think it has at least partly to do with my recent discovery of Facebook, a site that I hate yet can’t seem to stop using. Rest assured, everything is still okay here. We became something of a victim of the […]

A Non-Aviation-Related Post…

November 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Someone made a comment on one of my previous posts…something about wanting to see me get back to “aviation topics.” That comment sort of put a lid on my posting for some reason. I spent some time trying to decide if I needed to make some changes here. […]
