Good morning Everyone! Yes, Karen he was very nice and I am glad to have met him. My Deutsch is not so good  [???] when I spell it LOL Well so far it is not raining here, it seems like it rained every day this week. The weather is suppose to be very nice tomorrow and if so Paul and I are going to a water park called Aquadorm. It only cost 7 euro (depending on the exchange rate for tomorrow and just guessing about $9.63) for all day playing and fun. Okay, take care and I will check back later, take care and [8D], Diana

Hi Diana

Where is this Aquadorm? I looked it up on the net, but all I got was a company by the same name that sold waterbeds! [?]

Hi Stuart, it is in Hockenheim. The same township that has the racing track if that helps.
The fire in my heart is ceasing to blaze
And for some odd reason no one is amazed
A fire that once stood among a majority
Now just stands alone due to none priority
A fire that many have chosen to distinguish
Maybe due to the intensity of its anguish
Silence to the fire that was put out today

 Hi Diana! I love those nice sets even more, I like the big ones.. not those little skinny seats that hurt your tush! LOL I bought a nice comfy one and it made a world of difference.
 I hope you two have a great time at the water park. sounds like a fun day planned! Really nice for a hot sticky day! The weekend has been ok here the weather has bounced between sunny and overcast but warm the whole time. It has been rather sultry all week!

Take care and travel safely.. HAve a lot of fun, Hugs!

Hello Everyone! [:(] Not such a good time after all. When we got there is was so over crowded that the room to swim was zilch! We tried to have some fun but ended up coming home for the day. I did NOT  [:(!] stick to my "healthy" eating plan and was NOT happy with my weigh in this morning  [B)]. I plan on giving it my very all this week to do my work outs and stick to eating right. I have a hectic somewhat morning this morning so I will talk to you all in the morning. Take care, Diana

Hi Diana

Thanks for the info! Hockenheim is a bit of a trek, especially if it gets as packed as you say! Luckily, we have some nice lakes around here, and we can cool if in those!

Well, really did not know what to put in there. I will start next Monday with loss posting. Wow you guys are doing GREAT! I have been up and down so many times its crazy.

Stuart, you have lakes?!   [:P] LOL of course I would be scared to death most likely to get in because I don't swim very well. Yesterday it was 86 and today is completely different with rain and cool air. Mmmm feel just like at home as in (Texas: If you don't like the weather stay a few minutes, it will change  [;D])

Karen & Carolyn Ehhh it all worked out okay. We came home and I did some gardening (window kind) and transplanting plants that really need it. Paul finally got some of his email cleaned out, believe me it was a mess. I went to the gym this morning and did some time on the treadmill. I have an elliptical but I get bored and have to change or I will lose interest. I did some riding on my bike yesterday although I was sweating like a stuffed pig but hey that is good right? Well off to get some things done, it seems my cell is turned off cause we recently moved and they sent the bills to the old instead and now I have to go up to the Rhein Necker Zentrum (The Americans just call it the "mall")to get it fixed  [:(!]. Bye bye Karen, Carolyn, & Stuart, have a great day.

Lakes, yes, but not bigguns! Titisee is teh biggest natural lake, and is perhaps 3 x 1 km. Schluchsee is a reservoir and is 10 x 1 km. It's used for energy generation.

Here's a view of my area from Google Earth.




If you're interested, there's a book by Mark Twain (A Tramp Abroad) which covers his travels along the Neckar, as well as other Germanic/Alpine regions. It's a very funny book, and has an appendix about "The awful German language". I would thoroughly recommend it!

Well I have recently put on what was 10 lbs I was at 116 loss but the last few weeks have knocked me back up.. but I am buckling down again and got three off.. I think some may have been water from being ill. now it is more under control so maybe I can see the real weight again.. LOL.. I can't give up now.. I need to get rid of this weight!

Nice view.. That sounds like a good book. Mark twain was a very interesting man!

Hi Stuart,

            Thanks for the information on the book. I however, have a difficult time keeping interest in books  [:-\] . There have been a few books where I read the entire book and was pleased. If I can not get past the introduction or the first page of the first chapter I will lose interest fast  [8]. My mom can read a book a day or at the most three days, she is a true book reader. She has probably read a million books since I have been born. My oldest daughter, Savanna is a reader too. I will give it a try though upon your recommendations  [:)].

Hi Karen,
            Yes, I finally have my phone fixed YEAHHHH  [:D] but of course no one really calls me on it except for Paul sometimes. Wow Karen your weight loss is amazing! In February when I started back with SP I weighed in at 293 Lbs from being at 274 Lbs before Paul came home from the deployment. Then when we went back to the states for a month living in hotels and with family we mostly just ate out or had to eat what family was eating which at no fault of theirs was nothing like I ate. Well I put on quit a few pounds when I returned to Germany. In February I was so frustrated with myself I said "enough is enough!" and I went back to exercising and eating healthier. Today I am 277.5 which is a 15.5 loss. I went to the gym yesterday and did 30 on the treadmill. The gym has no air or FANS going during the day (No clue why  [???]) so going there pretty much after the sun is up is a scorching effort so, it opens up at 05:30 and the soldiers don't get there until about 0600 and by that time I am done and I leave. This morning I missed it (I just did not go) so I will do some other form of cardio either on my bike or walking. I also have strength training I do three days a week. Oh boy, yesterday was a day. I put in over 12,000 steps. I wear a pedometer and count my steps. I read that an active person puts in 10,000 steps day on an average. I try to beat or meet the day before. Well I am off to do something besides sit here on the couch at the lap top.

Bye Everyone! Have a great day, Diana

Wow Diana I needed that motivation as I seem to be in a rut! I have been so up and down emotionally that my weight has suffered..I need to keep my nose down and just do it!. I am so glad for you that you are able to get so much excercise.. I wish I could to. I have been getting some walking in.. my activity decreased a lot after the mini stroke. So now I just have to stop being so scared of doing more..walking is really good for me so I need to do it. I am a bit nervous to walk in town.. or around here. So many strangers here lately. Any way Congratulations Diana you are doing fabulous!

It is cool you can use the gym. That is a benefit! I have eaten out since November and have gotten into bad habits again. So I have an oven again and need to get bake to using it like before!

BTW I love your Quote..It is very beautiful and sad.. Something that touches my heart.

who wrote it? Did you? Have a nice Day!

Carolyn you are also doing so well! When did you hit the 100 pound mark?

OMG! I just translated it back into English and that was not what I wanted to say. There is that "he" and "her" thing that Twain talked about in the Tale of the Fishwife. So in English, you are a great guy, thanks.

Hi Diana, It is beautiful...May I ask is "Distinguish" a typo as in "to  stand out in a crowd," or did you mean "extinguish," as in "to put out a fire?" I am assuming with the rest of the lines you meant extinguish.. but I thought I would ask, because I want to make sure I understand the verse properly!.. It is lovely!

Carolyn you are also doing so well! When did you hit the 100 pound mark?

Monday....finally! [:)]  Stayed at 85 lbs. for what seemed like an eternity then I finally started losing again.  Since that last plateau I've averaged about a pound a day.

A pound a day is really fast weight loss. You must be working your tail off!

*sigh*  No, it's still there!  [;)]

I haven't averaged a pound a day the entire time, only the last 20 days or so.  My average has been about 16 lbs. per month.

Hi Karen, no typo's. Distinguish is defined in my work as; distance: Both time and place; not being accepted with your own kind (human race) being an outcast for who you are. Touching to me is an extremely important feeling to me, physical touch is how I communicate to others (loved ones). Not being able to touch Paul for nearly a whole year was painful for me. I felt alone like nothing you can imagine. It is not so much "just" touching other people because unless there is a connection I don't do the whole feelly touchy thing but it is how I communicate with those close to me. So not being able to "connect" to those so close to me because of my "ways" I was distance so "not" to "offend" my emotions. In other words "don't ask don't tell." A very difficult time in my life where I had to decide to be what others wanted me to be and fight with myself the rest of my life or do what was natural for me and be myself not bothered by how people perceived me, so I'm weird AND? Now the other half (whew) anguish: The pain within yourself. A fire burning deep inside that no matter what always burned and never went out. I was fighting within myself a war. One that where if one won the battle the other died and if the other won was dead to the world. Does that make sense because if not I will try to express it differently. Or I can try again. I was waging with war inside because I wanted to be me however, the other side of me wanted to be like other people wanted me to be so, if I took one I was lying to myself and of course the other option was not to be who I really was. I hope this helps, Diana

It's ok Carolyn so is mine!
A pound a day is really fast weight loss. You must be working your tail off!

*sigh*  No, it's still there!  [;)]

I haven't averaged a pound a day the entire time, only the last 20 days or so.  My average has been about 16 lbs. per month.
The fire in my heart is ceasing to blaze
And for some odd reason no one is amazed
A fire that once stood among a majority
Now just stands alone due to none priority
A fire that many have chosen to distinguish
Maybe due to the intensity of its anguish
Silence to the fire that was put out today

Hi Karen, no typo's. Distinguish is defined in my work as; distance: Both time and place; not being accepted with your own kind (human race) being an outcast for who you are. Touching to me is an extremely important feeling to me, physical touch is how I communicate to others (loved ones). Not being able to touch Paul for nearly a whole year was painful for me. I felt alone like nothing you can imagine. It is not so much "just" touching other people because unless there is a connection I don't do the whole feelly touchy thing but it is how I communicate with those close to me. So not being able to "connect" to those so close to me because of my "ways" I was distance so "not" to "offend" my emotions. In other words "don't ask don't tell." A very difficult time in my life where I had to decide to be what others wanted me to be and fight with myself the rest of my life or do what was natural for me and be myself not bothered by how people perceived me, so I'm weird AND? Now the other half (whew) anguish: The pain within yourself. A fire burning deep inside that no matter what always burned and never went out. I was fighting within myself a war. One that where if one won the battle the other died and if the other won was dead to the world. Does that make sense because if not I will try to express it differently. Or I can try again. I was waging with war inside because I wanted to be me however, the other side of me wanted to be like other people wanted me to be so, if I took one I was lying to myself and of course the other option was not to be who I really was. I hope this helps, Diana

It was only the one word the whole thing is beautiful and you expressed yourself beautifully as well as clearly... I just did not want to misinterpret that one word. I like the way you said it! I understand it and have been there and felt the very same thing.. Thanks Diana .. don't change a thing! It is perfect!

Carolyn.. I still have mine too! Its just considerably smaller these days! LOL!

Good morning everyone! Hope you had a good day yesterday. I have been lacking on the exercises this week  [:-\] It seems at the first of the week I am pumped to get started and by mid week I am exhausted from "getting" things done around here. I eat healthy, 3 meals and 3 snacks so it is not hunger, my doc says that my sugar is at its best so not really sure what is going on. I think I just need some real rest.

Yeah I think I have been going through the same thing. As much as I hate being away from the children at school I am noticing I am feeling more rested and some better. Bored but feeling some better.

Hello Everyone! Not to happy this morning  [:(]. I called the insurance people and they are still telling me the accident I had in April is still my fault. I am completely confused with this, I was in the PROCESS of making a left turn when a cyclist (motor) passed me on my left side and broadsided me on the front left side of our 4Runner. Now in the states I know that passing on the left no matter what is illegal, it really bothers me that this is going on my record. I have NEVER had an accident go ON my record before. I'm frustrated! This is NOT my fault, sometimes I wished I was still in the states where I know I will be treated fairly. Take care everyone, Diana

Here in California it is illegal to pass to the right at any time! I am sorry it is still an issue for you.. laws are so different everywhere! Sorry Diana!

What reason then do they say it's your fault ?....

Hi Neil! According to the German police a "witness" the one who was riding with the man who hit me said I had on my right blinker although I was in the process of making a left turn. I know I had on my left blinker, so when they read the report from Paul it did not state that he saw the left blinker on and that was because he was a passenger. It is all so wrong and so frustrating. They have made their finale decision unless I persue it even more which the adjuster said that the man could sue the insurance company (they gave him an advance payment already), me, and Paul if we take it to High Court (German court). So I am leaving it alone and accept what happened. My insurance has already gone up and Paul wants to persue it which I say just leave it alone.

The whole thing is that I had on my left blinker to notify any one coming up or towards me and when I saw that is was clear I started the left turn, just as I was in it about 65% of the way the cyclist bales right into the front side of us. The police said that the guy saw me slow down and "looked" like I was going to make a right but instead I made a left and that is why he ran into us. It is all unfair but then life is not always fair right? It is sad but justice will hopefull come one day. Take care everyone and thanks for listening and being here, Diana

Okay, I need to clear up a statement I made earlier, you can pass on the left if you are on a road with more than one lane, I was on a single lane road with the opposite traffic coming towards us on the other lane, I was making a left when all traffic behind me should slow down or come to a stop until I complete my turn but it did not happen this way, I was still in the single lane turning left when we were hit from behind on our left front because the cyclist passed me on the left veering into the other side of the road towards oncoming traffic. Now still the police say it is my fault because I did not look in my mirrors to clear traffic coming and the cyclist and "his" witness said I had on a right blinker to make a left turn! Now come on why is the real reason here? The insurance company only received my single statement from the MP's and Paul's somehow mysteriously disappeared in the process so when the insurance company saw that I was the only one and this guy had a witness they gave him an advanced payment automatically faulting me without investigation. Now once I called the insurance company to find out WHY it was my fault I found this out, told the man that Paul's was missing but that did not change anything because now this man has an advanced payment that they can not take back without being sued. ARRGGG, okay I'm calm now. So either I accept it or persue it not knowing what will happen to me AND because I am not Military and only a spouse, JAG (Judge Advocate General) will not represent me because I am not a soldier nor will the system at all help me because of being none military and being in a foreign country. Military life is not all it is cracked up to be!

OH Diana, I am sorry they are putting you in this position. That has to be so frustrating. I hope you are OK. It sounds like a very unfair decision which was based on a lot of inaccuracies. I wish things were better. what is the next step? Is it just over now or is there more they do now?

Hi Karen, for me it is over! I am done with it. Paul wants to persue it but that could cause problems. I will let God handle it. I forgot to weigh in to, I have as of today lost 4 lbs of the 7 I gained over the weekend. I was down to 277, went up to 284 and this morning I am down to 280. I am still so sore from weight lifting on Monday, my puny (?) arms ain't as strong as my legs are but I'm working on it  [;D]. Everyone thank you so much for all that you have done here for me. You all are the GREATEST!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great day, Diana.

I am confused by this, although as you say, laws are different in different countries.

Certainly, in Europe, it is illegal to overtake on the nearside lane (I use this term because it means different things in the UK, where we drive on the left, than in mainland Europe of America, where you drive on the right); but if a car is stationary on the outside lane (e.g. waiting to turn), one would not expect to wait alongside him until he moves again (e.g. that may imply that you would be blocking a stream of traffic in an otherwise clear nearside lane while you wait for someone to make a turn from the outside lane - it would not make sense).

You are doing well Diana.. I am glad you have lost 4 of the 7 you gained. It happens we all fluctuate it is hard to stay right on. I spoke with my doctor today and am going to have to see a surgeon about my arm. I am going to have to have surgery! Everything falls apart at the same time seems!Oh well we just pick up and move on Right? Right!
I will be grateful to be able to use my arm again.

Sorry your so sore. Please be careful so you don't tear something up like I did!


You are the greatest Diana and I am so proud of you still plugging away with me. Good Job!...

You too Carolyn!...

I have been there before - very difficult to prove what did and did not happen.  There is still a problem that you have a technical duty to check your mirrors just before making a manoeuvre, even if you are making it blatantly obvious what you are doing, and nobody but a complete idiot (which includes a large number of young and inexperienced motorcyclists) would ever have any doubt in the matter.

I would rather ask whether, if there was traffic on your lane behind you, how a motorcyclist coming up on your outside could see if your nearside indicator was flashing - would it not have been obscured by the cars behind you?
