Looking at life through an oversized steering wheel

Will You Be My Valentine?
That’s what I feel like asking my granddaughter. She’ll be four on her next birthday, and she appears to have her grandpa’s height (6’3″ in my case), being at the 85th percentile for height, 50th for weight. I remember when I graduated from H.S. I weighed 142 pounds and stood 6’2″. I joined the Navy, and when I graduated from boot camp nine weeks later I stood 6’3″ and 165. 23 pounds in nine weeks?
Then I smoked for years, so my weight stayed at 165. When I quit, my taste buds returned, and so did my appetite: I went to 185.
I’m up around 193 now, many years later. I walk, golf, and play power volleyball, so that’s not a bad weight. At one point, I ballooned to 215, but my lady friend and I went on the 10% solution and I dropped to 185, she lost about 40 pounds. Although you’ll Google a lot of 10% solutions on the net, the one I used was from Raymond Kurzweil, inventor of the flatbed scanner and other interesting things.
Among those interesting things is a software way to keep track of information, even on the internet. Check this and this site out to see if you aren’t fascinated.
Who knows, it may give you a new way to track information.
As for Valentine’s Day, give your sweety a hug and a posy. And maybe a small piece of candy.
