Thanks for the nice words everyone.

I usually get home from work at around 11:30 central time every night so am trying to make posting the milestones part of my nightly winding down from work routine. There will probably be some days when I don't work where I wait until the morning to post them though.

we continue to think of you grtgrandpa and miss you!

One of the animals I have always been fascinated by, is the American Pika (Ochotona princeps). I used to go up the tundra of the mountains and watch them gather materials when I could. I’d see the pikas foraging materials and many times going away with entire bushes. They stash away these materials and use them during the winter since they do not hibernate. According to one study, their stashes of materials can weigh up to 61 pounds, may cover an area of 100 square meters and can reach up to two feet high. That is pretty impressive for a mammal weighing 4-7 ounces!



I always enjoy seeing each of you here! I hope to see you all again tomorrow committing to another 24!

Cool

Back on board after a teeny weeny derailment, like seeing a lack of 'one drink only' as a deprivation........kind of like feeling short changed over not being allowed 10% or so of arsenic.
Still I'm prayerfully back on board with total abstinence my objective> DAY 1!

Bubovski - wow. Glad you're back.

Strategery - Walnut spice cake. I'm having a few days here of too much sugar. Weigh-in on Monday might be sketchy.

Hey friends. We had internet issues today so couldn't sign in this morning. I tried so many times. Alas, I missed the list for today which is nice to be on. Mostly, though, I am going to bed sober and that is what really matters.
