Adding, aging

Workout notes: late start. Rehab, pull ups: 10 singles, 20 singles, 10, 3 sets of 5.

Push ups: 3 sets of 40. Curls: hammer: 3 sets of 10, regular: 3 sets of 10, rows: 3 sets of 10.

Then 31 minutes on the home bike (10 fake miles)

Then PT: learned a few new moves to try. My weakness: isolating muscles..breath holding.

Shoulder: still somewhat achy from Saturday’s foolishness.

I am trying; shoulder is still too tender to swim seriously and the butt won’t let me walk too much; cardio is mostly indoor cycling.


It seems as if some liberals are shocked that ..or flat don’t believe that Mein Kampf is read in public schools. We did read passages..we did have it in the library and ..well, let’s just say that I did not make it through…too turgid.

I wonder if that is how it goes today: reading implies endorsement?

I honestly do not know.

Anti-Racism This is also a change; back in my day, it was bad, bad, bad to pretend to notice race; “colorblindness” was the goal. The idea: judge individual actions.
Now: one is supposed to notice …and take into account one’s status as “privileged” or “not privileged” and actions are judged on said privilege.

I remember the movie “Guess Who is coming to Dinner.” THAT was liberal race relations …state of the art, in 1967. Perfect Black guy and, of course, at the end, the old white man sets everyone straight (yes, it is part of the plot; the would be husband will not agree to marry the lady unless her father approves.) The movie would be ripped to shreds now-a-days. But then…it was OUT THERE.

I enjoy politics, reading, science, running, walking, (racewalking and ultrawalking) hiking, swimming, yoga, weight lifting, cycling and reading. I also follow football (college and pro), basketball (men and women) and baseball (minor league and college)
