    If you smoke: You are, A Dead Man Walking. WASH out all stinky ashtrays everyday. Brush your teeth five of more times a day. Listerine after EVERY TIME, or at least five times a day. You body odour may improve. That will give you an extra five years. (you will still lose 15)

    My cat tried to jump on the bed which she always does. This time she didn't make it and fell hard. I just heard her thump. So I went to check on her and she was having problems getting her hind feet working. I went to her and checked her hips and feet. At first she looked hunched and like...

    It's blazing hot out today so I stayed in and made a "dog-walking purse". It had to be big enough to hold a book, some poop bags (empty of course!) and a water bottle. I spent $2.98 at the thrift store on a straw purse and a long scarf. Then I used beads I already had to make a design on the...

    Don't get that channel, kept hearing from friend how GREAT it is, she bought the 1st season on DVD, we're watching 2 episodes once a week. Other horror/zombie fans, what do you think? First zombie show/movie I've sat through in YEARS, they -really- scare me, but this one is done in such a way I...

    Oooooh! All you zombie freaks, listen up! Last night, AMC premiered The Walking Dead. Now, one of my favorite parts of the horror genre has to be the zombie sub-genre. I do admit that I like a good possession or two, but zombies have to be my favorite (next to other aspects of the genre that I...

    We just got a new dog in our house and so far it's been exciting. Anyway....now my question. DH was walking the dog (it's a 8 lbs dog) on the sidewalk with a bag in his hand in case she needs to stop and do her business. So he's going by this house (2 houses up from us) and the lady tells DH...

    One of my new years resolutions is to lose weight. I know we all make that resolution and some of us never follow through. I've made the resolution several times in the past and never do it. This year I really want to buckle down and do something about my weight. While I don't consider myself a...

    So I went into wal mart today. First time in a long time and ya know I'm so not going back again for a long time. It was crazy in there! Parking lot was full, people inside running each other over whit carts and blocking whole aisles. I spent 20 minutes looking for the one item I was in there to...

    I thought this article about walking vs. what type of neighborhood you live in was really interesting. But I did have to laugh, when I read that their "scientific data" of people's weight was taken from their driver's licenses! I'm pretty sure my driver's license has my weight in college still...

    Wow...what a difference! I started walking on my lunch break yesterday, 10 laps around the top floor of our building, which really isn't even 1/4 mile, but I'm just starting out, so I'm taking it slow. What a difference! I feel more alert, not so draggy in the afternoon, and I have more...

    that's how i feel... have felt for many yrs. i was never one of those kids who "knew" what they wanted to be when they grew up. i still dont. :( i know what i like, i know what i'm good at, but i cant transfer those skills to a job necessarily - and the few i COULD do at a job, i'd be...

    Hi Anyone thought about walking dogs at the local rescue kennels as a way of getting fit and losing weight? I have spent 2/3 days a week walking dogs at my local centre (I teach at college so am on holiday). I love dogs and have 2 of my own. I feel so sorry for all the strays and want to do...

    I have been doing the Leslie Sansone Walk away the pounds tapes. I have had them for a couple of years but I have been doing the 1 mile and the 2 mile tapes at least every other night for the past two weeks. I like them because it is not a lot of steps to learn. It is low impact and it is not...

    A while ago we made an appointment for my son as he always walks/runs on his tip toes ( he is 3.5) the nurse was a bit concerned about it so we decided to see a specialist. The appointment was on wednesday and didnt go all that great First of all Jamie has a bit of an irrational fear of...

    I've been living up north and in the interior of BC for the last almost 10 years. For the past 7 years I haven't even owned keys to my house and haven't locked my car door. When I left my spouse I moved down to the south coast in march and I'm only now remembering to do things like lock the car...

    Just some random thoughts I'm having here. How many people do you know, or are you one of them, that are walking on a tightrope? I've been reading up, know people in real life, and have observered for a while of how families are walking dangerously on a tightrope. Single income or dual...

    I found in a old craft book that u take cans(coffee, lg veggie cans) drill 2 holes on either side of the top of the can, stick a piece of rope through one hole, from the inside of can to the outside, then make the rope long enough for the child to hold onto. Then, from the hand, run the rope...
