A Weekend Adventure

To "No Mans Land" 
aka: Promontory Point and ATK

We went for a little "adventure" and went to Promontory Point. Where the "East and West Joined" the country together by railroad.

Our first stop was at ATK (formally known as Thiokol) My dad worked there for many years doing secret government stuff, and blowing up things (Or that's how we though about it as kids) This is the "rocket garden". Seeing this, and reading about bombs, and rockets scares the crap out of me! Its so secret and scary. . . . 











This freaks me out! 







What's really creepy is that most of these displays are from things made in the 50's!





Not far is the "Golden Spike" Visitors Center

SO COLD!
We had wind burn on our cheeks the next day :(




It's not an adventure without Abigale Sheepie!
A fun, cold adventure!

Leave This Woman Alone!

*This is meant for the media*

Did Paula Deen’s diet cause her diabetes?


Not to sound like that crazy "Leave Brittany Alone" kid, but come on! Paula Deen is a cutie! She's sweet, happy, and loves food! So, because she is a little chunky and has Type 2 Diabetes now she is the Devil of the Food Network!? NOBODY deserves Diabetes, Type 1 or 2! I'm tired of hearing all the crap about fat people! It's not because I'm overweight, but because it's cruel.

Sadly, this has even linked up in the cancer world too. Can you imagine it? Chastising a poor bald woman fighting breast cancer because she's overweight? It's already starting and it's just sick!

We live in a world where the media portrays dangerously skinny women as "role models" and makes any person feel inadequate for being normal.

Who's this cute lady? She is the Surgeon General. Check out her website HERE . She talks about making health "joyful" and finding out what makes you find "your own" joy in health. She also talks about "Its not about telling you what you can and can't eat", but having fun, and making your life the best it can be!

I just wish her message was celebrated and more freely passed along.


This is not beautiful, healthy, and I am sure this "woman" is not happy. We all need to move our bodies, and eat more veggies, but we need to enjoy doing it, and realize that many overweight people are proud of their current weight because they once weighed more than they do, and they are taking control of their lives, and finding joy in loosing weight.

People may chastise a 250 pound woman and say she is grossly "obese" (another cruel word) but what if she weighed over 400 pounds and was on a healthy diet, and was proud of getting down to 250? How does that change how people feel about her?

"Food" for thought!

If you want to laugh SO HARD, you gotta watch this! :)

Thinking about this CUTIE!!!






This adorable lady is Dorella! It's amazing how small the world really is! She was one of the first people I met when I started working at Williamsburg 71/2 years ago. She is Tyler's Grandma! Now she's my Grandma too! She has always been so sweet to me. I was going through some stuff on my computer and had to show her off! What an amazing Grandma! The awesomeness must run in their family! Love you Grandma!
