Blogless in Savannah

This is one of those Cleland Family update blogs with catchy title.  Believe it or not I’ve actually got some things in mind to blog.  Don’t hold your breath but we’ll see how this month goes.  Here’s some news:

We’re moving forward on raising the money to send our dossier to Ethiopia.  I’m hoping we can get it off in April.  Feel free to follow along here.  I say that as if the three people who still check this blog aren’t also checking that one.

Loving the Southland in the Springtime right now except for the pollen.  Extra points to the first one who knows who sings the song alluded to in that last sentence.

Trying to get out to see The Last Song which was filmed at Tybee. When I went to IMDB to find that link I noticed that there’s an A-Team movie coming out.  Interesting. I also see that John Forsythe died.  And that he was the voice of Charlie on Charlie’s Angels. Who knew IMDB was such a treasure chest of information?

So I’ve lost over 50 pounds.  How did I do it? I cut out soft drinks and sweet tea completely.  I have been skipping things like white rice, french fries and white breads in favor of vegetables and whole grain stuff.  I have cut portions and worked hard at moderation.  I really haven’t worried about fat that much and I still put sugar in my coffee.  This all started in September so I’m 6 months in.  If I can do it you can too.

I’ll be headed to T4G in Louisville in a couple of weeks.  Looking forward to seeing old friends.  If you read this and you’ll be there be on the lookout.

    By paragraph:

    * I know you said to not to, but my breath is in a holding pattern.
    * Yes, I read both blogs, and happy to do so.
    * No idea, but I assume Nora Ephron will use it in an upcoming movie.
    * Is Nora Ephron directing the A-Team movie? That would be awesome, and touching.
    * Picture? And congrats.
    * Wish I could see you in KY. You’re not flying through SeaTac are you?

    I’m sure some picture will surface from Easter. As for SeaTac, sadly we’re driving and everyone else considers the Northwest route to be too circuitous.

    Happy for the Ethopia progress! Congrats on the weight loss. Saw the movie last Wednesday, some of my students were extras in it. Packed theater with me about 10 other guys in the whole place, felt very odd, strong desire to watch all 3 Rambo movies to prove manhood after the fact, but settled for a Chick-fil-A (cause I had a coupon). And lastly,
    Indigo Girls for your song reference, love them and that song.

    I was really hoping someone would get the Indigo Girls reference.
