I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.


NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Weight loss journal 10/4/2011




My sustained weight for the past couple of months has been 190 lbs., which is a 10 lbs. loss since May but only 5 lbs. less than last year.  Although progress has been painfully slow, it is a total of 20 lbs. less than when I started so I guess I should be happy.  My blood pressure is near normal without medication and my energy level is back up to where it has not been for many years.

I doubt that I will reach this year’s goal of 185 lbs. since I tend to eat more in fall and winter and I don’t have yard work to keep me active for hours each day.  Replacing yard work with exercise and daily walks is boring me to tears, but I’ll do my best to stick to it.

Exercise is the bane of my existence so I feel your pan Zack. Hope you can drop some in the next couple months.

Keep it up Zack, you can do it. Get a cheapo MP3 player, listen to some good tunes or radio and before you know it, you will have walked a couple of miles.

Greetings from Texas,
I second the MP3 player. I would put audio books on it. The latest Jim Butcher, GHOST STORY or S.M. Stirlings TEARS OF THE SUN will have you hiking for miles.
