Food Inc

OMG….I may never eat meat again! I heard about the movie “Food Inc” a while back, and finally watched it this past weekend. The cruelty to animals that I witnessed in this movie is unbelievable. I was so upset watching this movie, I thought I was going to cry and throw up at the same time. Michael Pollan is the writer, and you see a list of his other books here I am definitely going to buy his other books and read them too, as soon as I can get my stomach to calm down. I am really tempted […]

Happy Birthday to ME

Yesterday was my 45th birthday, and it was a very good day. I only felt one day older, no broken hip, and no mid-life crisis, haha. I am still very young at heart, and I suspect I will be that way for a very long time, so I don’t feel 45 at all. Greg closed the store early yesterday, and got home about the same time that I did. He took me out to dinner, and bought me a wonderful back drop for my coming photography business. It’s one of the great portable drops with a carry bag, and included […]

Old Year, New Year – Part 2

2010 is going to be a great year! I’ve decided that for myself. I’ve been thinking about some goals the past few days, again no resolutions, just milestones and changes I want to make in my life. I still haven’t quit smoking, but that’s okay for today. It will happen soon. I’ve been eating better the past few days, and went back to the gym. I always feel so good after an hour at the gym, so I’m not sure why I really stopped going. I could blame it on several things, but it’s probably just laziness. So here are […]

Old Year, New Year – Part 1

As this year comes to an end, and the promise of a new and better year approaches, I find myself reflective on life. I don’t intend to make New Year’s Resolutions, as those usually just become empty goals with no real meaning, but I do intend to make some changes in my life, and have definite goals I intend to fulfill in the coming year. Let’s start with the most obvious path to a better me: stop smoking. In this ignored resolution of new years past, I always blamed my failure to quit smoking on lack of will power, stress […]

Happy 4th of July

Freedom.  We’ve all seen the emails the past few years about our freedoms as US citizens being taken away.  They started during the “W” years after 9/11, and although they seem to have slowed during the Obama administration, I still get a few, and hear grumblings from acquaintances.  But what exactly is freedom?  Isn’t it a relative term that we each apply to our own lives? Last night, Greg and I went to an outdoor concert and fireworks display at Nashville Shores. As we stood on the sand beach of Percy Priest Lake watching the fireworks explode in the Nashville […]
