Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


Preparing for Fall Back 2016

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]


Taking my advice with time change

For many years I write a post when we Spring Forward and Fall Back and I give advice and tips on how to prepare before the change and things to do after. (Here’s last week’s post with tips to prepare to Spring Forward.) I usually follow some of my advice. But not all of it. […]


It’s almost time to Fall Back

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]


Review Wednesday: Wine2Go

A few months ago I was wine tasting at a Fred Meyer, a one-stop shopping retail supermarket company. (Fred Meyer stores are located in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska.) After perusing the wine area I noticed an item called Wine2Go. Wine2Go is a foldable, reusable wine bottle. I filled it up with some white wine and used it recently […]


Our bodies need energy, fuel

Like a car we need to fuel our bodies. I was talking to a friend recently telling her how I am teaching five cycle classes a week (among numerous yoga classes). Her next question was, are you in crazy great shape? (That’s not a quote. But she said something like that.) I told her I […]


Enjoying vacation

Since the end of 2006 I have been a fairly healthy person. In October 2006 I joined Weight Watchers and started on the venture to lose about 30 pounds. In March of 2007 I started regularly exercising, which still continues to this day. (And now I teach other people to exercise and practice yoga.) I […]


Is Guinness good for you?

A couple of years ago I wrote a post on St. Patrick’s Day after doing some research on Guinness. I have heard rumors that Guinness is high in iron and better for you than most beers. I also heard that pregnant women have been advised to drink Guinness because of the high iron and low […]


And GFG! is back on break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break. Earlier this week I wrote about how I needed to take a break from the blog to focus on packing and the impending move. I posted a farewell post yesterday and am now back on break. Have to get a few last minute things done before the movers arrive in […]


GFG! is taking a break …

And not a Ross/Rachel kind of break. As GFG! and The Husband get ready for the big move this week I need to focus on the last bit of packing and all that comes with it … including the stress and OMG! Am I going to run out of time before Thursday arrives? UGH! There will […]
