    Read your post on ecks' journal. You'd make a great butcher, and your cats would love you even more than they already do -- if possible.

    We've been pretty lucky with our tenants, we had a young couple (grad students) there for 6 years and they were great, we still keep in touch, then a quiet young woman who was never at home, she only lasted a year and then the current tenant has been with us 4 or 5 years (I've lost track).

    Our strategy was to really make the place nice, good appliances, garage, etc. and then to charge near the upper end of the market range. Once we have somebody we like, we never increase the rent. So far, so good.

    That is a really good plan - one my own landlord follows. Except for the upper end cost. I'm a rare bird in these parts - I have a decent year-round job, I don't smoke, basically I'm a normal middle-class person. I'm not rich and I'm not poor, which are the usual suspects around here. And rich people don't rent small garage apartments, so I'm a hot property!

    My cats love me best when I have tuna on my hands!

    Had serious fun in the pool today. I love swimming in that pool! It is like a dream come true. Today there were some 'real' swimmers there, a change from duffers like me. A couple of guys and a girl, like 8% body fat, come in with caps and googles on, prop up a card with their workout at the end of their lane and go to work. Fun to watch them. For myself, I am amazed at how quickly I am building stamina. It's only been a week - only 3 swims - already I am swimming farther and easier. And don't forget the sauna at the end! I do some deep breathing exercises in there (I'm a respiratory therapist after all.) Love it. Wish I was there right now!

    I'm going to take a computer sabbatical. I will be pretty scarce here the next week or so. My plan is to just quickly check my email once a day and that is all. I spend way too much time on the computer. Time I could be doing better things. And I am interested to see how I do with PB without journalling my food and the support I receive here in the forum. I don't intend to leave, but I don't want this to be a crutch, either. I will, however, keep a paper journal to some degree. And I won't weigh myself until next week either. I wonder what page my journal will be on by next week? I hope I can find it!

    Love reading your journal too.

    In case you get back and read this, just a caution on the sauna after the swim and I hate to ruin it for you as I used to like them too. There are tons of toxins in public saunas. Everything you, and everyone else in there, sweat off is then in the air for everyone else to breathe in. I went to a toxicity seminar with a natural doctor friend of mine and he was talking about them. WHe has a sauna for detox at his place, specially made, no glues, special wood. The protocol is you go in with paper towels, as you sweat, you wipe it off, then toss the towels out of the sauna, you don't even keep you own sweat in there with you. Just something to think about in case you are concerned with toxicity.

    I totally understand about the amount of time the computer can take up! However, I need the 'crutch' of the support and the journalling to keep me on track at the moment! I am a lot further off from my goal than you are too! We will miss you! Have a good week and we'll all be waiting on tenterhooks to hear how things are going.

    Popping in for a moment because I just have to share - husk cherries. Have you had these? Also called ground cherries, and several other names. It looks like a little tomatillo. Why have I never heard of these? Or seen them? Went to the farmers market this morning and a farmer gave one to me - after I swooned and picked myself up off the ground, I bought a pint, sat down at a picnic table, broke open a wheel of blue cheese and ate the entire pint. Then I went back to the farmer and bought another pint. This time I asked him to tie the bag tightly so I couldn't get into it. When I got home, however, I sat down at the table, looked dreamily out the window at the ocean and downed the entire thing. Yes, I have a bit of a bellyache. It is worth it.
