Conclusion: Too Pink

The experiment has ended and the conclusion is that the pink template was just too pink. It was hurting my eyes. I have to learn some template design. I want some pink but not too much pink. Get my drift?

It just gets stranger and stranger


What would you say if I told you that I was dating someone who is 14 years my senior, twice married (once divorced, once widowed) and the father of 3 kids (15 & 13 - from the first marriage, 5 - from the second marriage)...

Yeah, that's what I thought you'd say.

Too Pink?

What do you think of the new layout? Too Pink?

I was feeling kinda devilish this morning. I might change it back.


I received this from a friend and thought it was very interesting fodder for contemplation.

To realize
The value of ten years:
Ask a newly
Divorced couple.

To realize
The value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize
The value of one year:
Ask a student who
Has failed a final exam.

To realize
The value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize
The value of one month:
Ask a mother
Who has given birth to
A premature baby.

To realize
The value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize
The value of one minute:
Ask a person
Who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
The value of one-second:
Ask a person
Who has survived an accident.

Time waits for no one.
Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more when
You can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend or family member:

Sometimes I'll see a picture of San Francisco or get an email from a friend out west and I'll remember how much I really do like SF...not enough to settle there for the rest of my life mind you, but enough that I wish there was a way for me to be completely bicoastal. Isn't there some sort of job or life out there where I can basically live part of the year in NY (spring and autumn) and part of the year in SF (winter and summer)?

After running for 5 Hrs, 6 minutes.

Don't worry, I'd already walked about a mile prior to this picture being taken.

Things have been crazy...but just wanted to post a quick note that I did finish the marathon!

Time: 5:06

I was hoping for a sub-5 marathon but I hit a major wall at mile 22!

Well, I now have a goal for my next marathon...and yes, there will be a next!

It was so much fun!

More to come in another post...complete with embarassing picture.

Apologies for my typing mishapes. These French keyboards are a bit different than what I am used to.

So I'm in Paris...just days away from the marathon. It was cold this morning when I arrived. 2 degrees C or about 36 degrees F. Brrrr....

More later.
