Re: What are YOU reading?

I just finished 'The Lincoln Lawyer'. It was pretty good.

I'm debating on whether to read Tina Fey's 'Bossypants' or start on the GAme of Thrones series. I started watching it on HBO. Maybe I should wait until the season is over.

FYI I LOVE LOVE my Kindle!

Re: Who's Going to Bristow, VA 8/27/11

So Jiffy Lube Live is enforcing a no tailgating policy this year. Just thought I'd let you all know in case you didn't hear the news. I HAD considered finding a ticket for this show, but I may try to go elsewhere.... Here's a FB page: https://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Boycott-Jiffy-Lube-Liv...

Re: November Concerts Back on Margaritaville - Paris in Sept

Very excited that Jimmy is coming to Charlottesville in November!!!

I'm not sure if I'll make the Labor Day show at Nissan Pavilion, so I'm sooo glad to have a second option. Yay!

I was wondering has anyone ever taken curves? I wanna go do it but I donot know anything about it. thanks kristi I hear good things about Curves, but I tried a trial membership about 5 years ago and it just wasn't the kind of intensity I was looking for in a workout. With that said, it's still a go...

Here's a link to her interview this morning on CBS Early Show: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/04/ ... 9521.shtml

Even Patti La Pone gave her kudos on singing such a difficult song!

Re: Columbine ...10 Years Gone

I can't believe it's been 10 years already. I was in college when it happened and it really bothered me (I watched the news too much). I wrote several poems in my creative writing class to help.

Re: Buffett Bracketology aka 2009 Tourney Pick'em

I didn't enter, and for the first time in 10 years I didn't enter my office pool either, but I filled out the brackets anyway just for laughs. I'm 12-4 so far. I only picked 1 upset in yesterday's games, Northern Iowa, and they lost. I had Texas A&M, a #9 seed, but I don't consider picking the 9 se...

Re: HEALTHY LIVING

It's always easier to lose weight in the spring and summer....with the motivation and forward (downward?) momentum we've all had, I'll bet great things are REALLY going to start happening now! The fruits and veggies will be coming in season....so easier to make better choices...and just being able ...

I am 5'7" tall, and I think that is a reasonable goal. That is what I weighed about a yr ago. I don't know HOW i managed to let 20 lbs creep up ...

Re: A Mistake, But Unforgivable

When I was a child (not the adult that this person was), I accidentally swallowed a large ice cube. I managed to cough it up, but was coughing like mad, and went into the cabinet below the bathroom sink for the Listerine to gargle with, but, because I could barely see straight, I grabbed a bottle o...

Re: HEALTHY LIVING

Hey all, I haven't been around much, but I assure you I'm alive and well! I've lost 10 lbs so far this year, and while it's coming off slowly, that's OK! I've felt quite accomplished lately because I've started to run on the treadmill. Mind you, I can only do about 10 minutes at a time, and have bee...
