Hello everyone! I live in Charlotte, NC, born and raised here, except for short stents in a few other cities when married. I've been married and divorced twice and have one beautiful daughter who is 37. We grew up together!! Retired from Xerox Corporation. I've served my time working for corporate America - no more power suits and no more panty hose. I've got a wicked sense of humor, and am fairly "off the wall".

    What a challenge! I had a few slight "pops" turning to the right, so I will do this again later. And while I was doing the challenge, I checked to make sure my deodorant was still working. It is !! LOL

    Thanks to my encouraging buddies today: Dear Man Ed; Kathy B.; Rushley; Sir Paul; Heart & Soul Sis, Glenda P.; Debbie B.; neighbor Debbie H.; King Richard; and Wild Billy Bob Joe Jack, the Cheetos King. And to all my DC family, have a wonderful Friday as we begin to celebrate our nation's birthday. Please stay safe!

    Tight Hugs, Lots of Love, and Tons of Laughter !!

      Good Evening, My Dear H&S Sis! I hope you are having fun watching those fireworks or celebrating the 4th of July! The fireworks are alive tonight in our neighborhood! One of the Pekes is already cowering with Mr P but the other one does not seem to mind that much! He ...see more

    What a fun and interesting challenge! I honestly cannot come up with a food "tradition" from Charlotte. Charlotte is the 2nd largest banking center, after NYC, in the US. But we do have some great eating establishments. So, I'll have to choose the state of North Carolina. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts was founded in Winston-Salem, NC in 1937 (LOVE them when they have just been made - even though they have a kazillion calories!). Cheerwine (the nectar of the Tarheels) was formulated in Salisbury, NC in 1917 (a cherry-flavored soda). Pepsi-Cola began in a drug store in New Bern, NC in 1896 (too bad I'm a Coca-Cola fan and that belongs to Atlanta, Ga). Texas Pete hot sauce was developed in 1940 in Winston-Salem, NC.....not in Texas and not by anyone named Pete!. Of course, there is always barbeque....we didn't "invent" it, but North Carolinians WILL argue on which is the best BBQ sauce.....Western-style (tomato based), Lexington-style (tomato and vinegar based), or MY favorite, Eastern-style, which is vinegar based and totally the BEST.

    Huge thanks to my encouragers this morning: Dear Man Ed; Kathy B.; Sir Paul; KK Candace; Debbie H.; King Richard S.; Lin T.; and my super pact partner on Day #2, the incomparable RT. All your nudges did the trick!!

      Krazy Kat ... I think you need to send Cherine a dozen or more of those freshly made Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and don't forget to throw in a bottle or two of that great Cheerwine Soda. Love NC food. Hugs and Love Sweet Lady

    Hmmmm, a meeting with myself.....interesting. But I know what DC means. No major goals for this year; I'm retired. I am in good health, I try and eat good stuff (except for that bacon cheeseburger I mentioned yesterday), and I am financial solvent. So those are my goals and they are A-OK.. I have a power-point slide presentation and a bunch of spreadsheets I can show you, but that would be extremely boring! So "self" made this meeting short; you can run a D&B on me if you like. LOL

    I would like to thank some very gracious folks who encouraged me this morning, as I was sleeping: KK Candace, Linda P. (who may be golfing now); Sir Paul; King Richard; Debbie B.; RT (my fantastic pact partner on Day #1 of our new pact); Sir William B. (who probably would like to skip meetings); and Carolyn F. (welcome back! So glad you are doing well). Wishing all my DC family a very happy and blessed Wednesday, as we begin the 2nd Half of 2015. Dang! Those first six months just flew by.

    Tight Hugs, Lots of Love, and Tons of Laughter!!

    Has DC been spying on me? This is something I do religiously. I have a file set up on my desktop with the websites of all the restaurants I frequent on a regular basis and I add to it as new restaurants open. Yes -- I DO eat out a lot.....I'm not a very good cook. As I have mentioned before, I did cook for my family.....and didn't lose anyone on my watch! Healthy choices are very important when selecting from a menu and this is a given for me.......except for the occasional "slip" when I'll have a big 'ol juice bacon cheeseburger and a side of onion rings! My bad - but I'm only human.

    Big healthy thanks to my encouragers today: KK Candace; Kathy B.; Sir Paul; Lynn R.; Debbie B.; Debbie H.; Sir William B.; Lin T.; and my wonderful pact partner, RT. Thank you all so much!! I set my alarm so I wouldn't over sleep this morning, but did it anyway. Had a lunch scheduled with some friends (I had a vegetable plate!!), then had another appointment at 2:00, went to the bank, and have just been putzing around. Consequently, I didn't get to encourage as many of you as I wanted. There's always tomorrow!!

      Thanks for the encouragement today!
      The concrete was dropped (safely) then they went about the task of dismantling the crane itself. It was truly an amazing thing to see, and no coyotes were hurt!

      Have a great evening!!

    This is a stretch I do many times during the day. Good for keeping the feet/ankles mobile and flexible.

    Big thanks to my encouragers today: Wanda Roo, Sir Paul, H&S Sister Glenda; King Richard; William B.; RT, my fantastic pactner; KK Candace; neighbor Debbie H.; Pat E. in Dallas; and Flybaby Annie. Started out this morning with good intentions to post in a timely fashion....but the best laid plans......and you know the rest. It just takes a minute for me to become UN-FOCUSED!!

    Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday.

    Tight Hugs, Lots of Love, and Tons of Laughter!!

    Wow -- I can tell you a change I made to MY finances, but it probably (or maybe) is not a good fit for a lot of you. I have started buying gold - in 1-ounce coins (like a Krugerrand). I feel that the U.S. dollar is on very shaky grounds, so I am taking what I get in Social Security and investing that in gold coins -- held by ME. Usually do it every other month and buy 1-2 ounces. The price of gold fluctuates (every minute), but I feel safer having gold. I still have stocks and bonds, but this lets me breathe easier. And like I said.....this is my PERSONAL way that I have changed and I do think it's positive. Feel free to disagree.....one of my financial planners disagrees - maybe because I'm doing this on my own and he's not making a commission!! LOL

    Thanks so much to my encouragers today: Dear Man Ed; Sir Paul; KK Candace; Ladybug Cymry; Debbie B.; Debbie H.; and my wonderful pact partner, RT.....on Hump Day of our pact. I appreciate you all (all y'all?) thinking of me.

    Tight Hugs, Lots of Love and a Ton of Laughter!!
