    I think I should start a weight loss program and get people to pay to do lawn work in exchange for weight loss. Instead of Cross Fit, I'd call it Lawn Fit. :laugh:

    My Galaxys4 came with an app called S Health that measures your steps and tells you how many miles you have walked. I have found it very accurate.

    Ha ha, true... I'm like a bear that goes foraging whenever Dec 1st comes around. I've got to keep different waist pants for summer vs. winter! haha

    My POS droid can't even hold a charge while something is running, the batteries suck and cannot remove them.



    Thanks giving them a look
