Back in 1952, Ohio’s Cuyahoga River caught fire and caused $1.5 million in damage to Cleveland. The city’s industrial revolution had taken its toll with the oil and debris clogging the river and igniting on a regular basis. When the river went up in flames yet again in 1968, the situation gained national attention. The Cuyahoga became a poster child for early environmentalists.…Continue

When I was little, I walked everywhere: To school, to my best friend's house, to the park across the street and to the park a few blocks away. Sometimes my brother was with me; sometimes he wasn't. As I got older, I walked more places: To the store to get milk, to the theater to volunteer as an usher and sometimes I just walked for exercise.…Continue

I nursed both of my boys for a year each. Now I have weaned my sweet Baby B and its a little bittersweet.
At around 10 months of age, I decided to slowly over the two month span work toward using a bottle regularly. I thought it was because of B's extreme love of nursing and cuddling, that was the reason I couldn't sleep at night anymore. Some people sleep really well with their little ones and co-sleeping is a magical bonding time. For me it meant lying awake the whole night counting…Continue

I love to travel. I hate to look like a tourist. Especially in a metropolitan setting (it’s a whole other style discussion if I’m going to trek up and down the Grand Canyon). The ubiquitous camera is the first dead giveaway. And then the shoes. The comfortable, sensible walking shoes. Might as well have TOURIST tattooed in all caps on your forehead, right? You’re with me, I know it. It’s not that I need to wear 3 inch heels when I’m…

Now that the kids are back in school, it is time for me to head back to the gym and out on the roads. I am trying to reorganize my life around the nine hours I have free five days a week. A couple of days a week I go to the gym and swim, the other three days I walk...with my dog...he needs the exercise more than me. Huey has lounged around…Continue

I am a creative person. I have a flair for decorating, I can plan and cook a gourmet meal and I am wicked with the hot glue gun, so when presented with a problem, I
can pull out all the stops and come up with an ingenious solution.

Since I got my new camera, I just had to go to the beach today and both walk and, of course, snap some cool photos with my new lens.
In fact, I was walking on the beach when an Earthquake hit Southern California today.
I had no idea it occurred let alone the fact I didn’t feel it.
For today’s Wordless Wednesday Walkers, I’d like to share a few pictures from my virtual Walk across the USA.
Over the last three weeks, and using my Walker Tracker steps as a guideline, I’ve walked about 100 miles. Small steps do indeed lead to larger strides. I never imagined that I walked this far. From…Continue
