Oh dear. Well, the x-rays show that I fractured my ankle while in France. It happened during the last two weeks. I injured it twice, and have the bruises and swelling to prove it. I can hobble on it, but walking and biking are not recommended fo... Read more

I survived two months in France, on my own, and I greatly improved my comfort in speaking French. Goal accomplished! While in France, I walked everywhere. I took the train to explore other cities. Now that I'm back home, I am going to have t... Read more

Well, I didn't lose weight last week. Wrong! Tuesday I registered a loss. Popcorn at the Superbowl party probably did it. Salt. Between slightly elevated calories and reduced activity levels, I should not be surprised. My body requires that I ge... Read more
