New Exercise Program

I have had a goal to lose weight for quite some time. Wanting and doing are quite different in my world.

My friend Michelle had a great idea and invited everyone to go "walking" with her. Go to her site for all the details.

Starting tomorrow, I will be wearing my pedometer. My goal is to walk to Sudbury, Canada (figuratively--don't worry that I've packed up the house Papa Echo).

I'm putting this goal on my blog so that I'll feel accountable. If you notice my number of miles at the top of the page not changing much, then feel free to "encourage" me along.

I'm walking with you Michelle!! (just in a different direction, and starting in a different place, and oh never mind...)

Welcome to the U.S.S.A

I have been trying all day to come up with some coherent thoughts as to how I feel about the whole health care scam that was passed last night.

Every time I try to start,

Bad words, bad words, bad words...

I would love to write something poetic, that describes my every emotion, fear and frustration. All that comes out right now are some bad four letter words and that won't help anything or let you know how I feel. Until I can calm down, I won't be posting anything else regarding this subject.

And, be warned: DO NOT call me to discuss this if you don't want me to say things that will offend you. I'm pretty pissed right now.

Were we at a football game?

Jason: "Jonathan, what was your favorite part of the Outlaws Football game?"
Jonathan: "The popcorn."
Jason: "No the game... your favorite part of the game?"
Jonathan: "The remote control airplane dog fight." (during half time)

That's my boy!! We go to a football game and his favorite part has nothing to do with football.

I haven't forgotten, I'm just trying to "tone it down" a bit

I won't be at Best Buy or Borders tonight, but I will be here tomorrow morning, bright and early.
