Walking in the Digital Age

Starting late in life, I decided it was time to start walking and get my health in order. I’ve been diagnosed with early stage COPD (Emphysema) due to all my years of smoking. I was actually diagnosed 15 or so years ago, but it was mild back then and I stupidly continued to smoke until August 2009. Anyway, after doing some research, I figured out that the best thing I could do was to exercise so that I can keep my body health so the progression of the disease is slowed down. I figured walking would be the best bet.

2011 Reading Results

Another year has gone and I really did a number on the reading list this year. I have been slowing down somewhat toward the end of the year as I have been reading more RSS feeds during the evening. I am currently in the middle of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series by George R. R. Martin. They are long books, but really good reads. Fantasy with out an overload of fantasy. And what is even cooler is that HBO will have “The Game of Thrones” series starting this year! I am so looking forward to it and Laura wants to see it as well. So we’ll be subscribing to HBO for several months out of the year just to watch this series.

New Year Blog Move

Well, I have decided to move back to blogger. I’ve spent the last year or two blogging on wordpress, but I’ve become a big Google fan/user and blogger is associated with Google, so here I am back again.

I did attempt to import my wordpress blog, so that I could have all my posts back here, but everytime I try to upload the converted xml file, blogger just sits on “Writing Blogs” and never gets further than that. And there I am not sure if it is a problem with the blogger import or with the “conversion” program that I ran from a website to convert the file. So, until I am able to import all the posts, if you would like to read the past few years worth of blog posts, you can go to my old site.
