This post has a little bit of everything that I have been thinking about this week but haven't had enough to make a full post about.
First of all, I would like to congratulate Jacqui, from Extreme Makeover, Weight Loss Edition on her hard work and accomplishments. Though I do not know Jacqui, my friend
Arkansas Patti over at her blog "The New Sixty", did an excellent post about Jacqui earlier this week. Jacqui is Patti's sister Jan's friend, and we will also be able to catch a glimpse of Jan on t.v. tonight too.
Oh, my gosh, isn't she so beautiful and happy looking? We all wish you the best in your new life, Jacqui!
Update: I watched the show last night, and was amazed at Jacqui's determination, hard work and success. She literally worked her bottom off; exercising up to 5 hours a day and going from 355 pounds down to 148 pounds. Jacqui lost her weight the old fashioned way, and gained confidence and polish throughout her year of extreme effort. Jacqui now positively glows. Her husband Shawn is amazing and supportive, as were her family and friends. I hope that the McCoys will be able to have their first baby very soon. Chris Powell. Jacqui's motivating trainer, is also a great guy; and that was pretty nice of Walmart to give a $50,000 gift certificate to Jacqui for her efforts. Yay!
Jacqui now helps others along their journey to health, and has recently set up a blog, which you can read by "CLICKING HERE". I guess that I could have made this a blog post all on it's own after all.
Here is the link to Patti's Update: "I Have a New Hero".
Okay, now on to other news. Do you have any good vegetarian receipes to share? Read on!

Barb also sent me an email about Oregon Trivia. I found these tidbits interesting and hope you will too:
Speaking of my Emergency Preparedness and Self-Reliant Living blog, about a month ago I received a nice email from Hannah at E. Foods.com, asking me to review their food products for my website. I haven't done that yet, but if you want to check out their website for ready-to-make foods that store well for a long time, here is the link: E. Foods.com. If you have used their products already, what did you think?
I wanted to thank my newest followers today too. Welcome! I appreciate your support very much:
And now, a real blast from the past ... not sure what brought this song to mind, but it always reminded me of my Grandpa Johnson. I sure do love You Tube Music, it is very handy.
