It's time to shape up or ship out. I'm tired of being 'in-shape' as I am. I have plenty of strength (for my size) and all the energy I need (when I do something, it seems I have that much energy and no more) but I'm not 'in shape' per se. My overall physique is not pleasing to me and it's time to change it.
This is what I just ordered. I'll (try) to remember to update my progress if anyone is actually interested :)

Most hits from ...

Where do your site hits come from?

My overwhelming number 1 is on Grace Park; Thai posted about her quite a long time ago and she keeps on giving.

Second place is Kristin Kreuk (from the same post).

So, 60-70% of my visits are from these 2 lovely ladies; sad really, means my content isn't a big draw :)

Went to the folks house for the first part of the week (see previous posts) and then yesterday we spent all day golf(ing) :)

Point Mallard Golf Course

After that, I met some old friends at Ruby Tuesday's for a drink before heading out. (Lee, Christie and Mary Ellen at Ruby Tuesdays bar)

After that we went to the Frontier. It was 'foxy ladies' night and supposed to be jumping. Of course, it was dubious at best whether any 'ladies' competed, but I can tell you for a fact there were no foxes in there. On the whole, was a terrible competition, but we had fun drinking and playing pool (making a little money never hurts, of course gambling is bad, so don't do it).

Afterward, stopped at Huddle House for 'breakfast' and then headed back to sleep. Gotta work midnights tonight through Saturday, so today was for sleep :)

My Father's Day

For Father's Day, lil bit and I went to Logan's and ate dinner (on Monday instead of Sunday because of work). Here is her smiling for the camera (cell phone). No pictures of me though.

A pic from Ruthie of our relaxing in SL (I'm not at home for the next couple days, so couldn't get to mine, so she sent me one) and lil bit this morning smiling for the camera.

Gazans Stream to Crossing with Israel

By DIAA HADID, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 31 minutes ago

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Hundreds of terrified Gazans fleeing Hamas rule were trapped at a main crossing with Israel on Tuesday, hoping to gain permission to pass through Israeli territory to sanctuary in the West Bank.

Fearing death or persecution, Gazans began flocking to the Erez passage after Hamas militants wrested control of the coastal strip from Fatah security forces late last week. Israel, which has no interest in letting masses of Gazans pass through its territory and possibly destabilize the quieter West Bank, has refused to let most of them in, saying their lives were not in danger.(link)

This is a conundrum for Israel. They will let some pass (for humanitarian reasons) but the bulk of people will be turned away. While this is in their rights to do, and the smart thing to do; most of the world will renounce Israel's actions in this, implying that Israel has no rights in controlling it's own borders. Of course, this is not new, so shouldn't surprise anyone.

Another Study that wasn't needed

ALMOST half of men lie to partners about their looks to keep them happy even though most want the truth, a survey claims.

Men aged 18 to 24 are the most likely to fib over a question like "Does my bum look big in this?" while those over the age of 60 are the least.

Only 47.5 per cent of men with a PhD admitted being honest, while 60.5 per cent of non-professionals said they were.

Yet the poll by dating website found that 88 per cent of women claimed they wanted the truth.

GMTV's love doctor Sam van Rood said: "For many men lying is a damage-limitation policy, but the survey suggests they should tell the truth."

But lads' mag writer Jeff Maysh said: "A white lie solves all problems. We do it to get girls into our beds then out of them." (link)

Never, not in a million years, could anyone have predicted this outcome...

Happy Father's Day

btw: I re-inserted sitemeter so the TLB Ecosystem would work properly :(

Note: it takes mere minutes (for some) to become a parent, it takes a lifetime to BE a parent.
