    OK, lets end it, I don't like this game either

    As long as I keep taking meds, its ok. It's the worst 1st thing in the morning.

    My MacBook is still sick
    So no template.
    And this IBM ThinkPad sucks...I'm using Notepad to write this...cause I don't trust this ancient thing...I don't want to lose another post.

    Foods:
    Leftover Hamburger and leek soup, Virgin NorCal, Shephard's Pie (with potatoes) and my new FAVORITE dessert: frozen raspberries with whipping cream!!! The cream freezes around the berries and it's as good as ice cream

    No CHRONoMeter #s, that program is on my MacBook...

    PBF stuff...
    Not much. 2 (almost) chin-ups. I start with my arms at a 90 degree angle and then pull up and slowly lower. I can do one of these at a time. I can't do it as a pull-up.

    I have a question: What is the "starting position" for a chin/pull up? I'm short, and when I stand on the floor in front of my bar, I have to go up on my tiptoes to reach the bar. (I use a chair to get into the 90 degree starting position.)

    Big Toe Update:
    1st thing in the morning, my toe feels like it's on FIRE. Espically along the base of the nail. Then I pop some Advil, take some Homeopathic stuff and lay back down for a couple of hours until it feels good enough to get up. I soaked it in warm water with Epsom Salts this morning, and I may do that again this evening. I also ice it and elevate it. I continue to take stuff throughout the day.

    It sucks...

    I cancelled my Home Instruction time this afternoon and I turned down a job for this afternoon. I also called and cancelled a job I had booked for tomorrow. Twice this evening, I've turned down calls for jobs tomorrow...

    Figures...


    I forgot. I made shortbread cookies today. I ate two. One when it was still warm and one just now...

    Why can't we edit our own journals???
    Then we could delete this crap!

    I just emailed MDA about it, it may help if we all start reporting the spam posts too, if the moderators start getting overwhelmed with complaints, they may just do something about it! It really is starting to get ridiculous!

    As for your pull-up question, the proper starting position is the 'dead-hang', it sounds like your bar is the right height for you to do that. That is pretty advanced though, I'd be aiming to be able to jump up to the bar and pull-up rather than pull myself up from a dead-hang. That's hardcore!

    I figured I'd read back a bit before my previous post...

    Neat! Is that volunteering, or a job? (either is cool... the world needs more people with that kind of genuine interest in teaching...)

    Flute -- once upon a time, I was learning flute. But I couldn't get the hang of reading music. That's a bit limiting! I always love flute though.

    And assuming you're crazy enough to bring a baby, why would you remain seated while the kid hollers? I know there are some babies who will nap and stay quiet through all sorts of activities, but when they don't, I think the socially-acceptable approach is to bail out of there pronto.

    That wagon breakdown is a pretty amazing mechanical failure. Egads. Great pics though, love the red and the yellow of the corn. Actually that corn looks really inviting, I would want to play in it! :D

    Gotta check out that Terry Kelly video next time I have sound.

    SimpleH2O salesman -- ten minutes turns into an hour and they want $6,000? Yeah, wow. It's probably called SimpleH2O because only simpletons would buy it. ;) And remember that's just the start-up cost... no doubt to keep using it, you have to keep paying them for their own proprietary water filtration cartridges. I know a good bit about water filtration and from what I've read about them, the whole thing sounds scammy.

    I'm with ya there, I never get the shakies anymore now that I've dropped my pasta-and-rice approach of yesteryear. But it is odd to have it happen again -- what did you conclude, just hadn't eaten as much as usual?

    The multicolored curls rock, even if the colors aren't coming through in the pic as you describe. What matters most is how they look in person. :D

    All this wine sounds luxurious. Makes me almost sad that I don't like it and therefore can't appreciate!

    flickr -- yeah, I have my primal account for progress and food photos. My relatives really don't need to see me in a bathing suit like that. XD

    Love all those purple variations in your daughter's room.

    Toe injury: YEEARGH! Oh dear. Even if you lose your nail, it should come back... but it will take a while. :( Having the old one there meanwhile should keep your toe protected, at least. Ughh!

    I volunteered back when they were looking for moderators ages ago, but haven't heard anything since then. Perhaps I'd better volunteer again by email...

    OK, I'll jump, cause I'm so NOT hardcore

    Wow! You read quite a bit. I'm flattered.

    It's a paid job. (But it might as well be volunteer for the amount I'm paid)

    I taught myself...about 21 years ago. I used to play the Tuba
    Not reading music would be limiting...but you could play improv. I once went to a "Music For People" weekend improv workshop in New York State. It was awesome!

    My Farmer volunteers at the local Agricultural Fair. He made a 4'x8' shallow "sandbox" filled with corn for the little kids to play in. We put tractors and wagons and pails and shovels in it. The little ones LOVED it!

    I think so, it hasn't happened since.

    I never used to like wine either. It took several years. I first started with the really sweet (8), light fruity "wines" (peach, black cherry, etc) when they became too sweet for me, I moved up to sweet (4) white wines, gradually moving "drier" (1 - I still don't like 0) Just in the past month or so I tried red. Again, I found the lightest "easiest" beginner red (a Gamay or Beaujolais) and I haven't moved out of that step yet.

    Once you get started, it's fun
