Hi Cajun,
Hope your birthday brings you everything you want!

Hi Mary,
I ABSOLUTELY agree. I think that restaurants infuse their meals with salt, sugar, and butter!

Hi Bobbi,
I swear I thought I already responded to this. However, seeing is believing & I do not see a response, so –
CONGRATULATIONS on your new home! Thank you for the good advice.

Hi Cajun,
I suspect that it does come from the Native Americans, but I am not really familiar with the history. Here, it seems like just a good excuse for music and dance.

Lynn...have seen drum circles on tv. Have you had Grouper? Almond Grouper is food porn!
Hi Karen3,
So glad to hear that your knees are painfree!
I have had Grouper, shrimp, lobster, and tuna. Have not found any almond grouper, but will try it if I see it.

Hi Rosey,
This is exactly what I was doing – staying the same weight, but NOT eating healthy foods. I think I have actually done better down here. Hopefully this will carry over when I get home.

Hi Donna,
I do this all the time. Ever since I retired, I never know what day it is.

Dh had a hard time keeping up (and he is still pretty strong), and I know he needs the stretch and the different type of movement. He never used to like the class but he agreed today he needs it and we will probably do it once a week. With this class and tai chi plus three days of walking and weight machines it should be really good for him. I feel the need for the stretching so I'll get some of that but I'd really like to go to the early 8:30 stretch class too because it's floor work, but it's hard for me to get up in time.
Hi Mary,
When I get back home (next week), I need to get back to the gym & change my routine. Doing the same exercise regimen all the time doesn’t really work to lose weight. I have gotten into a rut & need to join one or two of the classes.

Hi Everyone,

Today was the first morning I actually got into the Gulf to swim. The water was just so clear, and calm, and warm, I could not resist.

Looks like we will leave for home on Monday. Although I like the mornings here, I will be glad to escape the heat and humidity of the afternoons.
