I haven’t written much about this because it’s kind of embarrassing, but if you know me, you know I’m a big guy, and I have always been a big guy. However, over the past 5 or 6 years especially, I’d really put on a lot of weight. I finally reached that breaking point, and realized I had to deal with it, so what follows are some random thoughts I’ve had about weight and weight-loss.
Food and beverage related stories. Used for discussions of good meals, restaurants, and recipes.

Friday evening Lay and I ate at one of my favorite restaurants in downtown St. Petersburg, The Central Avenue Oyster Bar. This is one of a number of small storefront places in the 200 block of Central Avenue in downtown. We have not been there in a while, but have eaten there several times, and find the food, service and atmosphere excellent.
No blogging or politics last week, as I was on the road from Monday to Friday. I drove up North Carolina because we had a business meeting in Burlington Wednesday, and then I took two days off, visited Mom and drove home. It was actually a pleasant week. i also took some photos around Kings Mountain and Shelby.
