The fog's getting thicker--and Leon's getting lllllaaaarrrger...

(Pop quiz time: name the movie that inspired the title of this post.  Anyone?   The answer, of course, is the 1980 cinematic tour de force "Airplane!"  Eminently quotable, funny stuff. Check it out.) 

So it has been a busy month here at  Oh, not in the posting department, because as you've no doubt noticed that hasn't been at the tippy top of my priority list of late.  There are three main reasons for this:

 1. I'm preparing a new media venture with an obesity & weight loss focus that is turning out to be way more work than I thought it would be.   It seemed so easy, a microphone, a computer, set up shop on iTunes and start talking--but it would seem that there's quite a bit more involved in the world of independent radio production that meets the overzealous and untrained eye.  Thankfully I had the foresight nearly 16 years ago to give birth to someone who is turning out to be quite an able podcast producer and is helping his poor old mother navigate the process.   I'm super excited about the new project, stay tuned for details soon!

2. Tim and I have been doing a little more foodie-tourism traveling and juggling work and family responsibilities as well.  So much to do, so little time, blah blah blah--and working on #1 above is where I've been spending my meager discretionary time.

3. I, like the aforementioned Leon, have been watching my weight tick up the charts lately--and I don't even have the fog to blame.  Well, unless you count the comfortable fog of love, that is.  Suffice it to say that my life long quest to catch up to, get on, and stay on the proverbial wagon continues and the increasing certainty that there is a big white dress in my future has convinced me that keeping my butt planted right here on this hay bale is still a top priority in my life.

I'm writing about 1, 2 and 3 above, stay tuned!
