  1. Is this what they mean when they say its infrastructure week?
  2. This stuff works. I typically eat one meal a day during the week (late dinner). During the week, the only workouts I have are two days of of 1.5 hours of indoor bouldering followed by one hour of yoga. On the weekend I might do some nominal body weight stuff restricted to some air squats, push ups pull up and planks or go climbing outdoors, but only if I feel like it. Just like everybody else I am prone to over drinking or eating too late or having an occasional injury which interrupts things. I can (age 53 next week) maintain a weight of 185lbs at 5'11" pretty easily and can get to the mid 170's with some alcohol cessation and a little more attention to the diet, but it is not easy. As I have gotten more into rock climbing (my youngest kids are nationally competitive climbers) I find myself really wanting to get lighter as the sport places high demands on the feet with tiny footholds that penalize you greatly over those that weigh less since you get the same number of square inches to establish a foothold without necessarily giving you any reward for any additional upper body strength or reach. Fasting is no magic bullet, though, especially once you get down to a weight where you have ~15% or less body fat. From my own research, the main benefits are from giving your body a break from producing insulin. When I work out or climb I usually do it in a fasted sate and it does not bother me at all. Alas, the holidays have not been kind, so this thread hits close to home as they say.
  3. Despite the ridiculous name, this is something that was in the works and desired by DoD and NASA for awhile, at least according to the NPR story I heard. Of course this is right up Trumps alley and its almost impossible to believe that this is not something he cooked up.
  4. I kind of get the same looks when at the deer lease and I don't bother to get out of my pajamas and slippers when I go to the blind. Meanwhile everybody else is all camouflaged up like they are are going to be tracking Caribou across the Northwest Territory instead of shooting corn trained whitetails from a commercial blind at 30 paces.
  5. Headed back to "The Red" in Spring 2020 for family spring break trip. It will be interesting to see how much the kids have grown as climbers since two years ago. The 13 yo went back to the "red" in summer 2019 and sent a 5.12d on lead and we have friend whose 11 yo has done a 5.13a on lead but that was in Spain(will also be on red trip). Should be an interesting trip with 11 year olds duking it out. I bet all three get 5.13a or better on lead. The old man will be trying for a 5.10a on lead. Damn kids. Also, my kids just advanced to the Divsional round of bouldering where they will compete to go to the national competition in Oregon.
  6. This is the tax records release thing, right? Saw nothing on the headlines yet. If I had money to put on it, I would guess another procedural delay.
  7. Years ago my pastor, a monsignor in the catholic church, laid out this very history on the exact origins of the Christmas Holiday, in a sermon no less. ...to say nothing of the various feast days, immaculate conception, minor visitations, apparitions, and other shrine holidays like Fatima, Guadalupe, Lourdes, Medjugorje as well as the whole rosary deal. That Mary really gets around.
