I just went to the doctor's again. I am now down to 286 pounds. I am so happy to be doing this the old fashion way by watching what I eat and walking for exercise. It has been a long road but I have now lost a total of 146 pounds since 2010. My total goal is to try and reach 200 pounds.

But yet it remains the small simple gifts that I seem to find that over rule it all. This year, I found mounted poster copies of original comic books: Batman, Superman, Spiderman and Iron Man. We had to run...

I am really amused now at how fast butterflies fly in Middle Earth. Just rewatched the first part of the Hobbit with my son. Gandalf with the butterfly at the end reminded me of the similar scene in LoTR.
