Well Fawn, good health is a lot of what this blog is supposed to be about. Along with some snippets from my life and what ever else I stumble across.

Cindy - I have been having adventures but I havent been off. The adventures have been right at home. First I went almost a week with no internet. That was almost as bad as a week with no exercise. Then we had an incredible wind and rain storm that knocked our power out. I was running the house from a generator so I only ran it a few hours in the morning, noon, and night. With everything else I had to do during this time there was very little time for the internet and/or training.Work has also picked up and it seems I have very little time during my work day to update my blog posts, D5F forums and the like. I like to use my break/lunch times to do my catch up. But lately those breaks/lunches have been while driving to/from/between investigations.
Thanks. Im still here. Ive been super busy at work and my internet at home was down for the past five or six days. I was having withdrawals.Everything is good.
Thanks Stephen. You are the professional now and getting the newest training. I appreciate the help.
I thought the raw meat was a little over the top too. And we wonder why some people give us strange looks when we tell them what we eat.
Herm- very nice. You are absolutely correct. thank you for adding to the content.
No reason. A friend sent a message about a false story on Taps. I thought it was interesting so I did quick research and found it was false. So I posted what is historically accepted as accurate. I used to be a band geek and taps intrigued me. (I should have been kicked out cuz I sucked). So, no gloomy reason. But thanks for checking in.
I think I read somewhere about a war going on between compact car people versus SUVs who think they can do whatever...
Corey- lighten up. You will come back around. You've got the strength. I assume your form is still coming together under the watchful eye of your trainers. Someday soon your solid form is going to shine through and your strength will take over. And you'll be back where you want to be. Patience, persistence, consistency.

Thanks PB. Yes, I have bumpers. I think the fear is that Ill hurt my arms if I dump them backwards. Im actually thinking about practicing the dump a few times. Kind of like the first time getting into a kayak...you need to practice flipping over just so you know you wont get stuck upside down in the boat.
Nice work !

I think the major part of that storm is going out to sea before it hits us up here in Maine. They are talking only 2-4" on the coast with some localized pockets getting up to 6". My jeep needs a new transfer case so I struck a deal with my neighbor until I can afford to get it fixed. He plows. I sand. Shoveling is an unbalanced load DL right?

Atodd, it was funny. I laughed at myself after. And I lost my father two years ago. I understand the need for levity. My Dad was one of my best friends.

I really liked this. However, I was on the wrong track reading it. I thought the "person" "talking" was you as a child and that one of your parents died. I was getting sad until the end. Foolish me.

ATodd - nice job working out in the deep freeze. I'm going to try my hand with my own blog now too. Don't know if I'll be able to stick to it though.
