Well my blood work is back and though this might not interest anyone but me- I’m shouting it out anyway because I have had to give up sausage, pepperoni, pasta and all the good eats over the last three months.

My last blood work was in June and my tryglycerides were 411 (this is not good-heart attack here I come) it was so high they couldn’t measure the bad stuff. Well my doctor wanted me on medication (it almost crippled me) so I went off and went on fish oil and watched what I ate.
Tryglycerides went from 411 to 207; cholesterol went to 227 with bad 138 (should be below 100). My doctor said what ever I am doing- keep on so this makes me feel better. I have also been doing the zone so my sugar/glycemic levels have been good.

Now- the fat and it likes me and doesn’t want to leave (I’ve tried) so I will try one last time and join weight watchers (they are doing it at school so what do I have to lose (100 pounds!)).
Anyway- I’m just telling people- I lowered my cholesterol.

bear (157k image)Delaney Talks to Statues
Delaney talks to statues
As she dances ’round the pool
She chases cats through roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
That I cannot discover
But she knows I love her so
When I tuck her ‘neath the covers
Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life’s good on our boat
Delaney draws me pictures
She finger paints the sand
We chase the dogs and hop like frogs
Then I do my bad handstand
She’s growing up too fast for me
And asking lots of questions
Some I know the answers to
And some I’m looking for suggestions
Father, daughter
Born by the water
Surf’s up, sun’s down
Life in a beach town
And some of the things I’ve seen
Maybe she won’t have to see
But there’s a lot I want to pass along
That was handed down to me
Delaney talks to statues
As she dances ’round the pool
She chases cats through Roman ruins
And stomps on big toadstools
She speaks a language all her own
Just a little like her mother
And she knows I love her so
When I tuck her ‘neath the covers
Father, daughter
Down by the water
Shells sink, dreams float
Life’s good on our boat.

This is the bear I got for Delaney- yes I’ll get it in the mail before she is born. Hope the shower was wonderful- I’ll post pictures as soon as I receive some (hint hint).

First off congratulations to Kristen, I am very proud of you. It is about the time those ignorant people t IR realized how important you are to the organization.

I am sorry I have not been on this site in awhile, but I have been consulting for the government the last few weeks and my time has been completely bogged down.

It did pay off, though, on Friday I landed the largest order that my company has gotten in Jacksonville in over twn years!! With the US Navy I received a contract for over $300,000. To put it in perspective, the gentleman I replaced sold $250,000 all of last year!

I jus wanted to pass on the good news as it has resulted in a lot of compliments and votes of confidence that I am being considered “the solution” to all of the problems that my company has had in Jacksonville.

To all of you who sometimes think that it is impossible to get ahead without being corrupt, this is proof that you can make it by working hard!

“I wish you could have been there for the sun & the rain & the long, hard hills. For the sound of a thousand conversations scattered along the road. For the people laughing & crying & remembering at the end. But, mainly, I wish you could have been there.” Brian Andreas

Hard to believe that 32 years ago mama died. Each day I miss her more and the void she left never seems to diminish or fade. I loved this lady and wish she could be here.

“Breaking the Hold of Routine”

The “comfort zones” of life are defined in large measure by our habits. Question the living patterns of your week. How much of your time is spent mundanely because you are too lazy to do something different? Are you learning from each day? Does each day hold any special significance? Prioritize the things that fulfil you most. Build them into the pattern.

“Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful”

Life is a constant process of creation and we will only be truly fulfilled and happy when our creativity is allowed to express itself.
Today- cook a meal, redecorate a room, take a picture, paint, plant a garden, sing a song (even if it is off key) Just have some fun some where in your day. Don’t forget to smile!

“Wherever you go, there you are”
We tend to believe that if we were somewhere else- somehow we would be happier and more content. We wouldn’t! The truth is, if you have destructive mental habits- if you get annoyed or bothered easily, if you feel angry and frustrated, or if you find yourself constantly wishing things were different, these tendencies will follow you, wherever you go. As you focus more on becoming more peaceful with where you are, rather than focusing on where you would rather be, you begin to find peace right now, in the present.
