I suppose I will lead with our disappointment with the game last night. It happened just as I hoped it wouldn't, and worse when it counted so much. Just so sad. We just did not play well. And, actually it would have felt really awkward if we had won in the end because the Giants really deserved the win. They played a very good game. I would never have thought I'd say this because he has sounded so much the opposite in recent months, but I really wonder now if Brett Favre will retire? I sure hope not, but for some reason now it would not surprise me.
Today seems like another new start since the start of the new year, like a new corner has turned. I am wanting and trying to make some new habits. I've really been struggling with ongoing neck/back problems the last several months. I am expecting regular exercise would really help that. Yesterday, I spent some time putting some of my audio books on my iPod, and I downloaded some Podcasts too. It's really kind of interesting what different kinds of programs you can listen to by Podcast, like old time radio shows, etc. So, there really is a vast array of things I can watch or listen to on my iPod while on the treadmill. I like the treadmill. I don't know why I don't make it a point to get on.
I haven't been paying much attention to the news and the election in the last week. Disappointment mainly. I see McCain, who has betrayed conservatives, climb to the top of this motley crew of candidates, and I guess I get really disillusioned over it all. There is talk Fred Thompson will withdraw his bid for the presidency tomorrow. I really hope not. I was just listening to a Podcast of Mark Levin talking to Fred and it just made me wish so much that people would listen, hear what he has to say. Once again, I fear it will be all the people who don't pay attention who will vote the most (and more than once ) and with the least amount of information guiding them. Further, I hate how our media is able to control events instead of report them.
Oh...let's end with something cheery. I got this in my Mary E. newsletter the other day. It's a neat, really different idea! They said:
• “AGE” POTS with moss. Throw a small clump in the blender with a quart of buttermilk; paint pots with mixture to encourage moss growth.
