The other day I was hiking and at the 14,000 step mark I felt a soft tissue pain in my knee. I switched dogs with hubby, giving him Rebel and taking Royce who doesn't pull on the leash as much. It's the same knee I've had major issues with befor... Read more

Tonight I fixed something on Spark that has bothered me for years. Sept. 19, 2016 I had recorded my weight incorrectly as 101.8 pounds, not 201.8. I am very picky about certain things, number in particular (I'm a CPA), and any time I run the My ... Read more
