new lifestyle

Last night the winner of The Biggest Loser was chosen and people don't seem to be happy.  I will admit, I don't watch the show.  I really don't like how the show doesn't take it's moment to educate the viewers on losing the weight, it strictly about the game.  In the end, it's all about [...]

The deal with changes

Change is a part of life that we can't really avoid.  Things change on a constant basis, including the weather.  I can't believe we were hit with two ice events in 6 days here in southeast Texas.  I was cooped up in the house for a couple of days which really gave me a chance [...]
