Christmas Menu

Its that time of year again – Christmas.  That means time to cook up some good meals.  Being on NutriSystem, I dont get to cook that often anymore, but gonna do it for the holidays.

Halloween and NutriSystem Update

Our little rural community of Sonoita celebrated Halloween this weekend. Living in the country, there is no real way for the kids to trick or treat. They might walk two miles and only visit 4 houses.� Instead, the community gets together at the county fairgrounds and holds a Halloween carnival. The chamber of commerce sponsors […]

Germany Trip Details

A bit more on my recent business trip to Germany… Thanks to some wonderful planning on the part of one of my colleagues, we had a 6:29 AM departure out of Tucson International Airport. Living a good solid hour from the airport, that meant a 3:30 AM wakeup for me. The poor itinerary continued as […]

Back From Germany

Well, I am back from Germany and my business trip. You may have noticed the lack of posting here. I went over there last Saturday for a conference that my company was hosting in Landshut, Germany. Landshut is about 40km North of Munich. During the trip, in fact on the first day, you may have […]

Another NutriSystem Update

Well, another week down on NutriSystem. I think that makes eight. I know another shipment has arrived so my cupboard is once again stocked. Though, once again, some of my items could not be filled so they substituted something completely unrelated. In fact, they substitute stuff I dont normally order which baffles me. There is […]

Whew – Long Day…

Wow, what a long day today was… We left the house at 8:45 this morning to get to Benson for the football game. It was another typical sunny, hot Arizona day for football and a visit to Apple Annies for some family fun. The football game went in typical fashion for Sean’s team. They lost […]

We recently had picked up another boardgame that we gave our first spin to this weekend. The game was Risk: The Clone Wars. Its another in the modification series of the long living, popular Risk boardgame. I grew up as a kid many years ago playing Risk. I have very fond memories of many Summer […]

Weekend Musings and NutriSystem Update

Wow! What a busy weekend. It was even a three day weekend for me as it was my Friday off week. Some of the activities though were self-inflicted. I put myself in a hole sleepwise early as I stayed up until 3:30 AM on Thursday night playing America’ Army. That game can be quite addictive […]

Treadmill Dies

Well, as usual, timing seems to be perfect. I was about 30 minutes into a treadmill routine last night when the treadmill decided to die on me. I was walking along at about a 4.0 mph clip when it suddenly stopped. Of course, I didnt stop that fast and promptly walked into the front end. […]

NutriSystem Update – Loss Continues

If it’s Monday, it must be time for another update on my efforts to lose some weight with the NutriSystem dieting program. I am happy to announce that another 2 pounds were lost last week. That brings my total loss for the program up to 18 pounds. Thus far, the NutriSystem diet continues to work […]
