No not my llama or grapes..:).. I do have 40 acres with some grapes & plan on planting more:). My land is next to a large organic Sustainable biodynamic vineyard, with sulfite free Vegan wine.

Seems like you should be backing off of that knee more and concentrating on some upper or abs to give it some rest.
Congrats on the Daughter B-Day, I always see it as a mother's birthday too.
Our Granddaughter will turn 13 at the end of this month. :lachmal:

I think your right about the knee situation Vegan Joe- thanks for the input.
Congrats about your grand daughter- it's a fun age.

We had a great day, spending time together- caught a movie and enjoyed some amazing food at a local vegan buddhist monastery restaurant.

Vegan Joe- I like your Merton quote, I have been a fan of his for years, reading all his journals... I love the New seeds of contemplation book the most-I appreciate his eastern mind set.

I had a good weekend with my daughter, as well as seeing Neal Barnard speak & work.
I went to the chiropractor yesterday, what a great adjustment!!
My neck was out, my back my knee & on & on.
My lower back & knee are still sore today from the adjustment.
I took a break today & yesterday on lower back & abs exercises.
I worked out with my trainer today upper body & arms.
lat pull downs, bench press, flys, tricep dips & pull down, biceps, shoulder press , pull ups
It is frustrating not being able to work out harder :( even walking today on the treadmill was painful
my knee adjustment yesterday was super painful! She said if my knee is making a crunchy sound whenI bend it like sand that it is arthritis. Has anyone heard this before?

today's diet
soy latte
vega drink
sunflower sprouts salad
italian noodles with summer squash & lots of garlic!!!
tiny piece of vegan left over bday cake
going to have a baked potato for dinner with more sunflower sprouts ( i just love them with lemon )

I have heard doctors says that osteoarthritis feels like sand grinding in the joint upon movement.
If I am "the man", then where is "the woman"?
