Even though we’re a couple of months from spring really getting started, it’s the perfect time to begin to get this year’s Planter Garden in order. We made some changes to our planters and have most of the planting plan laid out. See how it all begins!Read More The Garden Begins
Sometimes a company surprises you by showing you that they value your business. This is how Fitbit transformed me from a customer into a cheerleader.
This is part one of a multi-part post about customer service and how to treat your customers like a valued person rather than a line in a database.Read More Taking Care of Business: Fitbit
Heather and I have lived, loved, and (occasionally) worked along side one another for many years now. In one of those semi-spur-of-the-moment outbursts I’m prone to, after an otherwise innocent comment by her about a minor dissatisfaction with her blog at The Spotted Cat, she woke up Saturday morning to find that I’d spent the night before…Read More New Digs.
In my last post, I mentioned that while Heather was waiting for surgery over the late spring, I built her some planters and did a lot of gardening work so that she would have a nice place to rest and recover outside. I think those planters deserve a little more elaboration. They were very simple and…Read More Project: Large Wooden Planter for Green Onions
MIA I’ve been pretty much completely missing in action from the internet this year. I haven’t made a post on this blog in a very long time. I haven’t made a blog entry at www.myfitnesspal.com in something like 8 months either. I haven’t been tweeting, or plussing, or pinning, or even sharing much on Facebook.…Read More How to Find Out What You’re Made Of
I don’t know what happened at Blogger HQ over the last while, but my old blog disappeared. It’s a bit of a shame since a lot of that was content I’d written and never posted anywhere else, but it was probably pretty self-indulgent anyway. I re-posted the blogs I’d written over at MyFitnessPal.com over the…Read More Missing Posts
Today is one of those big days for me. You know the ones I mean. This is one of those days when something monumental has happened. I’m not talking about getting a package you’ve been waiting on, or your favorite show is back on the air after a long hiatus. I’m talking about one of…Read More Neil Armstrong, Halfway There
I’m coming up on one of my milestone goals. I arbitrarily set them every 25lbs, so I’d have 10 “Milestones” on my total journey from 475 to 225. I’m getting close to 350, which is the halfway point. I guess that makes this a MILESTONE GOAL instead of a milestone goal. I’d been told, have read, and heard many…Read More Motivation, Will, and a Little NSV
There was a little more of a gap between Part One and Part Two than I would have liked. As I mentioned in Part One, I was concerned about going into a local bike shop and being told (politely or not) that they wouldn’t be able to help me. I’m still a magnificently fat bastard, after all-…Read More Birthdays and Bicycles – Part 2
There are two things I wanted to write a bit about this week, and they’re kind of related. My beloved H4rpy (I know it’s weird to say that someone you call “Harpy” is beloved, but that’s another blog) is participating in a 6 week challenge where you set your own goals and win warm fuzzies for completing…Read More Birthdays and Bicycles – Part 1
