  • Heather, thanks for the description of British accents ... err, I mean, the various accents one hears in the British Isles ;) That was very interesting. No kidding! I grew up in Western Massachusetts, very near the NY state border, where we tended to sound like people from "upstate" New York. Vowels tended to be streched…
  • Whee, you & me both! DJ, I smile every time one of your posts pop up. I went to college in downtown Boston (nearly 40 years ago, eeek!) and my friends and I often went to the Exeter St Theater on Friday nights to catch the midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. When I see you screen name it takes me back!…
  • Hi - I'm new to MFP and I just found this forum. Wow, what a friendly, active, supportive group! I'm Rosie, and I'm 56 years old. I recently retired, and DH (who is also retired) & I moved a few months ago to the greater Sacramento CA area. I joined MFP because my weight has been creeping up and my jeans are getting…
  • Sun 1/3: my husband and I walked a nature trail in the Sierra Foothills near Nevada City CA. The 2-mile walk took us about an hour, we did a lot of sightseeing :) Mon 1/4: The rain has arrived! I headed out while it was sprinkling. I really enjoyed it, and it was chilly enough so I didn't overheat in my hooded rain parka.…

I'm getting the hang of tracking my walks using the MapMyWalk app on my phone. It's a nice tool. A lot of rain is predicted for next week where I live in Northern CA, which we desperately need so I'm…
  • Dressing for a long walk in the cold is really tricky. Your best bet is to wear fairly lightweight layers that are easy to get on & off, & carry a small backpack or one of those drawstring bags to easily carry the layers as you shed them. And try not to overdress, you'll warm up soon enough. A hat & gloves are important,…
  • Hi everyone! I'm new to MFP and getting the hang of it. I walk a lot, but this year I'm striving to be more consistent & accountable. I'm glad I found this group! Fri 1/1/16: 4.2 miles in 1 hr 17 minutes. I'll try to up the pace a bit next time. I'm shooting for about 5 miles, 3-4 times per week. I use the mapping function…
