I can think of 2 Scotts, 2 Canadians, a few European countries with 1 each, England 1, Australia 2, counting me as from PNG, that's 1. US a bunch.

Those of you who haven't added your country to your profile, please do so. It would be interesting to know.

So, I'm back in the US after a difficult trip that took about 3 days. Haven't been keeping up here very well. Lifted with my son yesterday for the first time since May. Good.

I photographed Wood Frogs at Middle Creek WMA today. I also saw Canada Geese, Tundra Swans, Northern Shovelers, Ring-necked Ducks, Great Blue Herons, a Black Vulture, Turkey Vultures, a Red-tailed Hawk, an American Kestrel, Killdeer, a Belted Kingfisher, a Tree Swallow, Chickadees, Tufted Titmice, Eastern Bluebirds, a Song Sparrow, Dark-eyed Juncos and a Red-winged Blackbird, and heard Spring Peepers. Some of the Canada Geese are nesting already.

Blood pressure - 110/68.

It's official, i'm transcending into the pantheons of the 'uber-tough-guy'.
What if the Hokey Cokey really IS what it's all about?

my puppy has developed the hilarious habit of stealing dirty underwear out of my mrs's hamper. Every time you turn your back on her she's got some. It's so CUTE

I think I figured out why Jodi Arias stabbed Travis so many times. She is crosseyed and thought she kept missing.
Thanks TimD.

We have a cedar chest in our living room that we use as a coffee table. It's over 4' long and full of sheets and blankets. Anyway, I've noticed lately that someone has been sliding it around causing the rug underneath it to bunch up. At first I thought it was my wife. Then I thought it was my son (he's six). However, it turned out to be my 21-month-old daughter. Today, I watched her place both feet against the chest with her butt against the couch, and slide it away from the couch as if doing a leg press. It looked easy for her. Makes you think.

If I could lose about 6-7 pounds and get down to 181 (hard to believe I started at 160) then I would be on the board at the gym.
