Sep. 27th 2007

“The average man, who does not know what to do with this life, wants another one which shall last forever.” ~ Anatole France

Have you ever been confounded by people who are intent on eternal life after they die, but who don’t know what to do with the one they’re presently living?

Today in the Commercial Appeal there’s an interesting article about the secret language of families. It seems that most families, probably yours too, have words and phrases that you have to teach people who become part of the family through marriage or close association.

The word, I think used as a verb, is “to Griswold” some event or attraction.

DOCTOR’S ORDERS! — 9/18/07

Sep. 18th 2007

Good Tuesday All!!


Fox & Hound on Sanderlin by The Racquet Club and the Double Tree Hotel. Come and go from 6 to 8! I’ve had a lot of people to send me their regrets and I’m beginning to worry that it will be just me and our departing Kevin Jenks sitting in that big party room drowning our sorrows in our beer! Your family and friends are welcome! If you’re reading this, you’re welcome! Hope to see you all tonight!


Doctor Rebecca Walker, Boot Camper and medical genius, sent this to me yesterday:


This just came out in the Annals of Internal Medicine…yet another reason to do Boot Camp.
Conclusion: Either aerobic or resistance training alone improves glycemic control in type 2 diabetes, but the improvements are greatest with combined aerobic and resistance training.”

Amen, and amen!

Have a great Tuesday afternoon everyone!

Sep. 12th 2007

John Maxwell once wrote:
“People who have given up are ruled by their darkest mistakes, worst failures, and deepest regrets. If you want to be successful, then be governed by your finest thoughts, your highest enthusiasm, your greatest optimism, and your most triumphant experiences.”

I discovered something
