Another new day

I worked as a construction labourer but now retired so have to use my whole day for fitness. I have several exercise routines through the day plus walking/hiking and swimming in my apartment building indoor pool.

Re: Positive thoughts

Re: Positive thoughts

Always be polite in situations, keeps you from creating negative scenarios in your mind. If you encounter a nitwit, you don't have to respond. Sometimes walking down a street and see a couple walking towards me and my wife, often they keep walking not moving aside so us two seniors have to step of t...

helping hand

Walking down a street in my neighbourhood the other day was an old fellow sitting on the front step to a small 3 floor apartment building. He was saying something and at first thought he was just saying hi but then realized he was sitting on the step but couldn't get up to open the front door. It wa...

Re: Hot choc / cocoa

Bought the almond and cashew unsweetened, reading the label found that the higher protein was from added...

The Other Olympics

A couple of events not in the Olympics but I would find inspirational, in China they have Tai Chi competitions.

Re: Under the table

When I did camping, I would sit at the wooden picnic table and brace my feet and do the Roman chair style sit-ups, where your head comes back and touches the floor. I can still do it, gave it a go a few months ago.

That lady moved to a care home but we have another woman on our floor who my wife takes out for a short walk everyday, she's on oxygen and uses a walker, has many health problems. We also do some shopping for her as she's not mobile much. I see many older folks who just never gave a thought about he...
