Finally Back on Track

In October 2011, I fell and hurt my right knee. Since then I have had a lot of pain in the inguinal area of the same leg, and because of the pain I became very sedentary. The lack of exercise combined with no change in my eating habits lead to a weight gain of 15-20… Continue reading Finally Back on Track

Birthday Parties, Family, and Ford Focus(es)

Melody Hendrickson, Wherefore Art Thou?

I finally broke down and contacted Jeffrey Lucas at Prime Pay about my reference, since Melody Hendrickson promised me a good one when I left Prime Pay back in 2005.
