Excercise Make Us Smarter!!

Just thought I would share something with you that I just read.  I find it very interesting and extremely important since there are so many problems these days with depression, Alzheimer disease, and other mental health problems.

Boosts Your "Noggin" in 20 Minutes, Helps Stop Brain Shrinkage

I have recently been making a point of getting more exercise due to Diabetes and high Cholesterol, as well as the desire to loose weight. Now I have one more very good reason to exercise regularly!!

Facebook Friends

As I 'flip through the internet', reading bits and pieces there, I am reminded of dear friends I have on Facebook. For example, reading "carpet cleaners Durham NC" makes me think of Mary & Frank who live in NC, and when I think of them I am reminded of Brooks and his sister Kelly in SC... they are currently both visiting Denise in Myrtle Beach!! They met on Facebook and became good friends, now have met in 'real life' and are having a really great and fun time getting to know each other better.  I am so thrilled for them all and am sure that a life long connection has been made. I hope that one day I too will be blessed by meeting some of my Facebook Friends in person.

Trike Make Over

The building of a trike can take a long time and be very tiring. Even just a make over on an existing trike can be a lot of work and take a lot of time. My buddy, Phil, is doing most of the work, much of it before I even get there each day, yet each day I go up there to spend time helping with the work and/or keep him company. He is doing such an incredible job of making my trike look better and I am so happy with it so far. Today he painted the base coat, Cosmic Dust, onto all the parts... gas tank, 2 fenders, 2 side covers, and 4 brackets for the fenders.  Tomorrow he will put on the Lazer Blue Candy, 2 coats, and then about 3 coats of clear on all but those 4 brackets which will just get the clear coats now. Phil is really good at working with metals, creating pretty bits, and although he is not a professional painter, he does a good job at it.  It was a beautiful, sunny day today, very warm, so was a good day to start the painting out in Phil's shop, and the nice weather will continue long enough to properly dry the paint without a paint booth in which to bake it.  I will post photos when I can.

Travel Dreams

The other day I was so wanting to just pack up and go somewhere.... anywhere other than here. Some days life goes so well and other days it doesn't go well at all.  On those days when things aren't going well I sometimes just go back to bed and have a good nap. When that doesn't work I just want to take off  and go where everything is new. Where it's new scenery, new people, new everything.  At times like this I become very interested in ocean front property in Costa Rica, maybe a condo in Arizona. Somewhere I could ride my trike or go for walks in nature all year round.

New Laptop!!!

Sadly, my computer died a few days ago and I have been unavoidably offline.  I now have purchased a new computer and am back to business so to speak, lol.

It took a bit to get things set up on this new one, especially since I really don't know what I'm doing, yet I have managed to do it and am back in action.  I still need to install a few programs, though am grateful to be online. My blogs, my Facebook, my emails... yup, I'm back!!
