Late Night TV and Spinning

Spinning DVD

The other night I was up late and was flipping through cable channels when I happened upon a Spinning infomercial.  Of course, since I just got back into spinning, I decided to watch the infomercial. The program advertised the virtues of spinning. As part of their sales pitch, they showed several before and after pictures… Read More

Spinning Bike

Yesterday I took my first spinning class.  Well, it wasn’t really my first spinning class.  It’s just the first spinning class that I’ve taken one in a couple of years. I re-joined the gym last week and am on my quest to get in better shape.  I knew things were going downhill when a 4 minute… Read More


A Pleasant Fitness Surprise

I re-joined my favorite gym last week and went for a fitness evaluation.  Much to my surprise, I’m not in as bad shape as I thought.

I’m “Doing” Old

Doing Old

This Thanksgiving was very enlightening for me. My enlightenment had nothing to do with how to make a creamier cheesecake or the fact that my turkey brine resulted in a very moist tasty turkey, it had to do with how we age. According to my kids, I’m as old as dirt.  They asked me, “What… Read More

Kitchen Sponge

A few years ago I wrote a post on disinfecting the kitchen sponge. It included using hydrogen peroxide and soaking the sponge in the liquid until it stopped foaming. Very recently I found a much cheaper and easier (and embarrassingly obvious) way to disinfect the kitchen sponge. I can’t believe that I overlooked such an… Read More


The other day as I was wandering around the internet and I came across Earthtones.com. Earth Tones offers wireless phone service, long distance phone service and internet access.  The real kicker with Earth Tones is that they donate 100% of their profits to organizations that help to make the environment better.
