Commenting on a comment from Joe

Joe commented on my last blog titled I'll scrub your floors and wash your linens. His comment was one I always get no matter how hard I try to be clear. "Don't you need aerobics for heart health and to lose fat so you don't have to eat less food?"

I'll scrub your floors and hand wash your linens.

Hey Fred - how come you're not big?

First let me say Happy New Year, peace love and joy to everyone! I hope you all bring to this new year all of your love to each of your lives which in turn makes this world a place of prosperity. I have learned that the new year (or anything else for that matter) cannot bring YOU anything. YOU must bring to it, whatever it is. So bring it on!
