"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Seventy-Five Pounds Lost So Far

If there are any friends out there who are curious about how my weight loss program is going, today was a bit of a landmark. At my WW "weigh in" this morning I passed the 75 lbs lost mark. The photo at left depicts 75 lbs worth of books. (I had to stack them up in two towers to keep them from falling over.) I also received the refrigerator magnet below, right. Thanks for your continued support, my friends. I obviously have a LONG way to go, but the results are encouraging so far. (And yes, those are a descending dove and a model of a B-24 Liberator just behind my head. Needless to say, I live in a very interesting household!)

Good heavens, Tex! You are wasting away to nothing.

Seriously, well done. That took quite some doing.

Cool beans. And I have been aboard a B-24 that still flys.

Randal, well done thus far. Keep up the good work and perhaps some of us other big guys will be forced to join in.

Considering the B-24 played an even larger part than the fabled B-17 in ransoming Europe and the rest of the world from the Nazis, I'd say it's juxtaposition with the descending dove is entirely appropriate.

Bravo on the weight loss, sir, you're looking good.
