I went to see my heart doctor this week. He’s the one who helped me through my bypass surgery last year and he was pretty critical of my condition. Over this dreary, wet winter I’ve put on some pounds that I really need to shed. My pants are getting tight.

Most of the reason for the weight gain is a lack of exercise. I’ve become sedentary, spending far too much time sitting at this computer. It’s bad enough that I am chained to one at the office for eight hours a day, but I’ve developed some bad habits at home too, playing games, reading and writing, bathing in the soft glow of the monitor while worshipping this seductive god called the internet.

It has to stop. Springtime is here and Big Brothers is finding a little friend for me to play with so I’m heading back to the gym and out to the garden. I’ve vowed to reduce my internet time to one half hour each day so I’m giving up my blogs.

I want to thank everyone who visited this blog. It was fun for me and I appreciate it.


  1. Larry, even though I just recently started following you I am going to miss your blog. Maybe you could just post once a week to keep us entertained. I feel ya about the heart doctor and the exercise. Take care.

  2. LARRY!!!!!
    Say it ain't so...
    If you really have to, I understand, I'll miss hoisting pints at "the king's arse" with you. I always smiled when I opened my dashboard and saw that you had posted. Not so much this time.
    Take care of yourself buddy!!!
    If you decide to come back, please make sure you notify me!
    thanks for the laughs and good times
