The New Regime

Or regimen.  I can’t remember which applies better here.  So at lunch today, I went to 24-Hour Fitness for a little abuse, I mean, Kickboxing.  This was pretty interesting because it was humbling in the extreme.  I kickboxed back in Canada about, oh, ten years ago and I can safely say: How far have I […]

Be Zazzled!

The Herb Garden

So I’m in the middle of planting an herb garden.  We have two great planters and we didn’t do a full-attempt last year so I decided it was time.  Last time we planted, we did tomatoes, more tomatoes, peas, and the freaking hottest habanero peppers that ever dug roots.  Oh and zucchini that totally took […]
