Not So Fun Day Off

As today is my Friday off (I get every other Friday off), I was looking forward to a nice, relaxing day working off my to do list. I had lots of catch up work to do on the four computers scattered around the house. Suzanne was going to get on the riding mower and cut […]

New Website in Development

I guess I shouldnt have been so quick to talk about my “free time” and looking for some projects to work on. Suzanne got wind of it and decided that I should spend that energy on developing a new website for her. Sounds like a win – win situation to me. For a while now, […]

NutriSystem Diet Week 1

Well, the first week of the NutriSystem diet is over and the results are pretty encouraging. After the first week of this new diet, I have lost 8 lbs. I have a little trouble with that number because I had my doubts about the starting point last week. It seems that the last week of […]

Over the period of the last six months they have intermittently blocked me from sending email to Comcast subscribers thinking I am a spammer. […]

I havent had much time to really do a post lately. I have been very busy on some of my website and php projects. Everyone thinks its strange that a 42 year old Senior Manager comes home from work and codes until he is ready to fall asleep, which is usually pretty late. I probably […]

NutriSystem Diet Day 1 – Dinner

Okay, last post for a while on the new NutriSystem diet 🙂 Dinner tonight was Pasta Fagiola with some snow peas on the side. I got to have a side salad and a whole wheat roll too. So, once again, a pretty fair amount of food. I didnt leave the table hungry and felt satisfied. […]

NutriSystem Diet Day 1 – Lunch

Just a quick update, but lunch was pretty good. Seems to have been enough food too. Lunch started with a prepackaged Chicken Stew with Barley. It was quite tastey. I do want to bring a few spices here to work so I can add some if desired. To the stew, I was able to add […]

NutriSystem Diet Day 1

Today is day one of my new NutriSystem diet that Suzanne has decided her and I are going to do. I wont post about it every day but wanted to run down how I fared on the diet for the first day. Today, breakfast was actually more food than I normally eat in the morning. […]
