I honestly have never set out to be an overachiever. I actually find it an unattractive trait! I relate much better with underachievers — because in my mind & heart that is what I am.
But, when it comes to walking, I can’t help myself. SORRY.
It is my MORTAL dread of being sick. I don’t like the inconvenience of being sick.
2,020 miles for the year. Yeah, IF I basically give UP walking.
SMILE. Don’t hate me. My life is already hard.

Sorry, BUT I do know what I am talking about here, and some reflective, ‘educated’, older Navajos — who have travelled some — agree.
Yes, of course, there will be initial mayhem, BUT that is a necessary price for the long-term gain.
The prohibition is a JOKE. An absolute joke. Wherever you go around Chinle, AZ, the roadside is littered with bottles and cans that once contained alcohol. Some folks have to be making a fortune bootlegging the stuff to places like Chinle. I suspect it is those that maintain pressure on ‘Window Rock‘ not to lift the ban.
I find the ban INSULTING to the Navajo. You are treating them like kids.
Yes, alcoholism, drugs, obesity and diabetes are HUGE problems. With a few exceptions nearly every Navajo you meet around Canyon de Chelly looks like they have a health issue. They also age so quickly.
But, just next door, in Colorado, drugs have been legalized. And the poor Navajos are considered too irresponsible to trusted with alcohol.
Lets just take the added pain upfront and look forward to the inevitable sanity that will come down the road.
I am a lone and small voice — from far-away New Hampshire. But, we have to speak up.
A wrong is a wrong and this is wrong.
Free the Navajo. Give them choice.

So this study, paid for by The National Institutes of Health (NIH), after studying data from close to 6,000 survey respondents, concluded that “lesbians have more than twice the odds of overweight and obesity as heterosexual women”. OK, we will buy that — but I am not sure I would pay $3.5 million to just learn that. I think ‘we’ have all observed that there are indeed quite a few lesbians that are on the BIG side.
But this study only goes as far as this when it comes to even coming close to looking if there are any causal relationships — “For instance, it has been suggested that bisexual women’s physical appearance is influenced by having a male versus a female partner“. Yea? Well, tell us more.
What comes first and I know that that is indeed a touchy ‘PC’ issue. But that is what would have been worth $7 million to study.
Think about it — but best not for long.

This is a shame. It is becoming noticeable. When we were in Phoenix Airport, last month, while waiting for our luggage, we were forced to comment on this: ‘you don’t see this many THIN people at home’! Saying that the climate helps is only part of the story. I really would like to see this trend reversed.

Deanna was reading this and, understandably, getting very agitated. Though I didn’t read all of it, I realized quickly that this was spin and bad spin. I also appreciated that this had to do with the new anti-obesity policies. So, I decided that I would do some quick research before going to bed.
Just as I suspected. Poor, irresponsible journalism on the part of the Sun. This is not law as yet. Nobody will be fined. It is still in the proposal stage and the USDA is still accepting input.
