I've been out of town the past few weeks, but had a milestone to celebrate.
With my weight at 224 pounds this morning, I am officially no longer "obese" according to the Body Mass Index. Still have about 30 pounds to go to get where I want to be, but there it is. I'm just overweight now! Woot!
Quote of the day:
"Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
President-elect Obama has chosen a HUD secretary. President-elect Obama said HUD is essential in the effort to stem the mortgage crisis, which "not only shakes the foundation of our economy, but the foundation of the American Dream."
A couple nights ago I gigged a hospital corporate party with an enclave of pro musicians from around town. The organizer of the gig is a good friend of mine who is probably the best front man I've ever played with in my life. We had a bunch of tunes on the set list that featured some screeching rock classics; Separate Ways, Rock & Roll, Synchronicity II, among others.
Well, here I am for my first full day in Colorado Springs. From my office, I can see the Air Force academy stadium, and light planes are constantly taking off & landing for glider training for our next generation of budding pilots.
Welp, someone has WAY too much time on their hands and, of course, a webcam...
So I'm headed to a data center in Colorado Springs for the next ten days (Dec 11-20). During that time, I'll be staying at a nice hotel with a gym, but I gotta ask: what do you do to stay in shape while traveling? In particular, how do you handle all the eating out?
I think my suite has a kitchen. If it doesn't, wow, this is going to be a rough week for sticking to my eating plan :)
So this picture captures the feeling of the average American citizen toward the Big 3 auto-maker bailout (note: language alert!):
The Supreme Court rejected an appeal that Barack Obama was not a natural-born citizen due to his dual British-American citizenship at the time of his birth. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/12/08/scotus-rejects-appeal-qu... . In sum, he was born on American soil, to an American mother, despite a father who was a British subject.

I feel dumber already ;)
