No Tears Shed This Year! First Nashoba Run 6-2-20

Back at it.  I’ve been missing it.  Wanting to beat last years’ record.  Knowing it would not be easy to get back at.  Fearing it.  Remembering that every step that hurts there means I won’t hurt in a big race later (that thought is the most useful!)….

Nashoba hill runs Tues 6-2-20.  Forgot my watch so have no stats.  6x, one with 20 lb vest and one with 40lb sandbag.  It felt like a slow slog.  I remembered to pace at beginning – you shouldn’t be tired/worn out after the first third…. I always ran up over the top.  Started using technique I found at Killington where I got up facing left 10 steps, then right 10 steps – just keep going.  Determined progress forward.

I wasn’t alone but as usual, was the last on the mountain 🙂

No new records today but I did it.  I showed up and that counts too.

Container Gardening Class

Container Gardening 2019

Normally I do a container gardening class at the local library, which is, of course, not possible this year with the Corona Virus so I am posting my presentation here.  I also have this handout which also has a few of my favorite perennials (plants that live outside year after year) and good books and other resources:

The cover picture is from my old roof deck and this is a passion flower, which is an annual out here in the northeast.

 

 

 

 

 

Beware: Marion Dale Curren, ~Age 74

Do not let Marion Dale Curren Have Access to Your financial Holdings!

Alias:  Mike Curren, Pete Curren, Randy Curren 



DOB: Jan 5, 1943. Born in Bessemer, Alabama. Some records may have a birthdate a year earlier.

Description: about 5’9″ and 160 lbs.



Relatives: Might have a relative named Randy 



Locations: Presently in New Mexico near the border to Mexico. Past locations: Reynoldsburg, OH, Columbus, OH, Brice, OH, Worthington, OH, Logan, OH, Las Vegas, Oregon, Oklahoma

Marion Curren met my mother as she was retiring. She had a house paid in full with money in the bank and no debt.  He conned her into thinking he loved her and even spoke to us children to assure us how much he loved her and that he would never hurt her. She is now left with $100k of debt and a huge mortgage against the house.  A large collection of antique lionel trains that my father collected prior to his death 30 years ago is also missing…valued at ~$40k.

Once he got all he could from her, he took any remaining items of value from the house and left, leaving no forwarding address, abandoning any responsibility for the debt he incurred.

He will buy things on credit, sell them for cash, pocket the cash and abandon any responsibility for the debt he incurred. He has a manic-depressive disorder also which combined with no conscience and enormous financial irresponsibility, makes him a very dangerous person.

I believe that he has done this before and will do it again!

We have found documents showing that he has several safe deposit boxes at Century and US Bank and I suspect elsewhere. He is wanted by several credit agencies. Before meeting my mother, he declared bankruptcy, yet showed a huge roll of money he kept in his bedroom.

Please ensure that other kind, compassionate, vulnerable women are not taken advantage of by this man!
