I started out by getting up at 0400 (4A). This woudn't have been so bad, except I had my alarm set for 2200 (10P) last night so I could get up and walk the pups. I'd woken up at 1930 (730P), pottied myself and the dogs, and rolled back into bed,... Read more

Saturday, November 07, 2009      9 comments

I'm a little disappointed. I had my blood drawn last night and got my results back. At first, I was pleased with my results - the HDL was 53, LDL 126, cholesterol 199, and triglcerides 97. All within the good limits. "Yippee!" I thought. ... Read more

Clock Frustrations
Monday, November 02, 2009      9 comments

I don't usually mind the time shift too much. It's irritating at times - in the spring, I have to take an hour's annual leave or comp time to get my full 80 hours for the pay period. In the fall, I get an hour overtime. This was my "look" last n... Read more
Day of the Dead
Saturday, October 31, 2009      4 comments

I live in the American Southwest, with a Hispanic influence all around me. This is one of the customs I have found very interesting. Halloween, or All Hallow's Eve, was thought by the Celts to be a time of the thinning between the veils of the... Read more
