Slow Carb Diet
Sam is on a quest to drop his extra weight.
Three Months Later...274lbs
Sam started the slow carb diet on May 20, 2012. All the weight lost has been due soley to the diet. Now, he'll start doing daily workouts on a recumbent bike from Hest Fitness Products.

I love Christmas lights. They remind me of the people who voted for Obama. They all hang together, half of them don't work, and the ones that do, aren't all that bright............

15 Months later still nothing. like former Secretary of State Clinton’s infamous “What difference does it make?” As the Washington Post reports:
U.S. officials say efforts have stalled to capture about a dozen people secretly charged in the 2012 attack on the American compound in Benghazi that claimed the lives of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
The individuals have been charged in sealed criminal complaints filed in federal court by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. They include one of the suspected ringleaders of the attack, Ahmed Abu Khattala, a militia leader with ties to al-Qaeda, said several U.S officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
So far, none have been brought to trial and the lack of progress in capturing Khattala has frustrated U.S. intelligence officials and lawmakers who want to see him and the others prosecuted. One official said that Khattala continues to operate in eastern Libya with impunity.
“He’s as free as a bird,” the official said.
The health care dilemma. Judge Jeanine raked Obama over the coals again Saturday night for lying about the status of the still glitchy healthcare.gov, and dismissing the insurance cancellation notices of millions of Americans – many of whom have pre-existing conditions.
She brought up the case of Maria Silva, a stage four terminal cancer patient who was dropped from her plan right before her next round of chemo.
“Maria wants new insurance, but she hasn’t been able to get on healthcare.gov, she’s tried to make phone calls to get more insurance, but she can’t even reach anyone, and there’s not a navigator in sight – and so she waits…”
“Mr. President”, Pirro continued, “with all due respect, that pre-existing illness thing? She’s got it! And now because of you, she’s got no insurance, and she’s got no life saving treatment. Staring straight into the camera, Pirro added, “are you proud of yourself?” (video).
Judge Jeanine had on Dr. Ben Carson to talk about the botched rollout.
“It seems to me that if the government wants to fix a program , why not offer something that is so good that people flock to it – rather than something that you have to twist peoples’ arms to go into it. Isn’t that America has always been? How America was established?” the good doctor said. ”The system works against itself and I’m not sure that anyone has put a lot of thought into this thing. I think it was more of an issue of ‘ what can we put together quickly’ in order to gain control of healthcare.”

So says 97-year-old Myrtle Miller Watson of the Japanese planes flying into Hawaii where she worked as an Army nurse at Schofield Barracks.
“At first, we waved to them. Then, plaster began falling from the ceilings and walls and we saw bullets flying by.”
An Army mechanic and patient quickly identified the enemy planes and pushed her inside, minutes before a Japanese pilot strafed the doorway of the hospital. For years, she kept the bullet that narrowly missed her.
Watson went to work that morning and didn’t leave for three months.
She remembers the fatally wounded soldier, who could barely breathe but asked her to check on his buddy. His jokes about her bright nail polish so moved her that she never painted her nails again.
I can’t imagine. She continues,
“I repeat this story for the men, who can’t speak for themselves… I tell their stories so they will never be forgotten. I have never forgotten those young men who were so willing and eager to serve their country. It is really important, especially for children in
school, to remember this day.”
Passing by the USS Arizona memorial, the crew on board Nimitz paid tribute to their fallen comrades in the hallowed waters below.
“It really is surreal,” said Aviation

Interior Communications Electrician 2nd Class Michalle Boyce manned the rails of USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) while passing the Arizona in 2004, and has volunteered to do so with every opportunity she has since been given. Boyce’s grandfather served on the USS Oklahoma during the attack, and being able to render a salute to the Sailors lost in the Dec. 7, 1941 attack has become a point of
“Every time I stand up there I feel goosebumps when we pass the Arizona,” Boyce said. “It is a very powerful experience.”
The lesson? there’s never not a good time to get naked (don’t advise you using this lesson in real life). Here.
The newest addition to the site’s e-shelves are shirts that read “Daylight Saban Time,” referring to the extra second that the Crimson Tide was granted to attempt that fateful 57-yard field goal which Auburn returned for the game-winning touchdown.

Just when you thought the hype was over, there's talk of Bama/Auburn rematch. Florida State and Ohio State would both need to lose their respective conference championship games, and Auburn would need to win the SEC Championship Game. That would open the door for No. 4 Alabama to slide up to No. 2.
In the last year of the BCS, it would be all too appropriate to end with mass chaos.
