Guest Post! Exercising at work

It’s been suggested to me that featuring a guest writer in my blog from time to time is a good way to keep readers interested and attract new readers. I found a guest writer and her blog, while it reflects my values, is written in a style that most certainly is not mine and therefore, […]

Weight Loss Diets *Results not typical. Your results may vary* What!! What??

Results not typical. Your results may vary. I’m a believer in Weight Watchers. It worked for me in 1990/91 and it’s still working for me.

Mature woman, hear me loud, DON’T WEIGHT!

An unspeakable horror happened recently in broad daylight in a place that most people would say it’s a place as safe as any place in the world.

I’m not talking about “taking care of yourself” so that you are stillĀ around to see the toddler grow up and have toddlers of his/her own. I’m talking about removing all the filters in […]

Should cupcakes be allowed in school?

As a kid I loved the moms who brought cupcakes to school to celebrate her child’s birthday with the class. You know, those delightful, beautiful little cakes full of highly processed flour and sugar and topped with artificial colors, more highly processed sugar and some saturated fat that many call “unhealthy.” Oh boy. I’ll take […]

Best of Sooner or Later: Body Types! What’s yours?

I spent a good deal of my adult life riding, showing and breeding Morgan horses. The interesting thing about Morgan horses today is the controversy over two distinct different body types. Some owners and breeders prefer what is called an “old type Morgan.” These are the shorter, stockier horses that are not appreciated in the […]
