9.1.08 Never EAT anything that has partially hydrogenated, fully hydrogenated, or ANYTHING hydrogenated in it! CSS

The best way to make Cream Cheese Frosting is this: Buy softened cream cheese--like a container of it like 8 oz. or so. Place it in a bowl and start adding powdered sugar until you think it is sweet enough. DO NOT lick the spoon and put it back in the bowl! Get a NEW spoon each time. THEN and this is the trick, add some WHIPPED cream. But it has to be from the can cause it has no hydrogenated oil cause the containers of whipped cream DO HAVE hydrogenated oii which will kill you! So add some whipped cream a little at a time until you like the consistency. Oh man, it is unbelievable and will taste so PERFECT on your freshly baked pumkin cake. CSS

9.27.08 Let's talk about exercise. Just get a small, recumbant type bike at least. Ride it 10 minutes at a time. Do you know what you do in ten minutes? Watch tv, stare out the window, glance through the weekly newspaper ads, talk on the phone . . Even 10 minutes a day is more than nothing and will help you feel better, lose weight, strengthen your HEART, and get you out of the depressing frump you are in! How about a treadmill? Have stairs in your place? Walk up andstart waking! down briskly until you can't any more. Do something! START! Yes, START is the American Heart Association's START walking for a healthier lifestyle. START doing something to get going!

heart10.28.08 Wow, life has been too busy for me. I can't wait for the elections to be over. Tired of political polution and all the commercials. It makes a heart tired to not have any relaxation time. Take a walk. Admire the fall colors. Breathe in the fall air. Watch a squirrel in the park. Get some sun.
