I have been resting it and I’m not going to start up again until I stop feeling pain in it. It is still not healed all the way. It is a really nagging injury.
I just like to push myself and continuously improve. It’s just how I am. It’s not about how I stack up against others … I like to compete against myself to improve. Harder, faster, stronger. I track myself and my stats. Continual improvement is what keeps me going. The human body is a pretty cool machine … the more you work it the better it gets.
I’m probably not as big as your husband. I am more naturally just pretty well built. I have 17 inch biceps and a horseshoe, even without working out, and my arms are pretty lean. So, I’m lucky in that I don’t really have to work out for purposes of muscle mass, but at the same time I’m not like a muscle bound gym rat.
My wife actually doesn’t like it when I build too much muscle, either … especially when my traps get too big. She just doesn’t like it. So when I am training, I train just as hard on cardio as I do for lifting. I have come to really enjoy running, which is odd because I hated running in high school. I have always been a decent runner, I guess, and could run a mile in the upper 5s, without training for distance running, in high school, but I just didn’t enjoy it. I thought folks who went out for track and field were masochists. Now I love it.
Glad to hear that your taking a break to heal. When we are young we don't realize the wear and tear that we put on our bodies. We will regret it when we get older.
I couldn't tell you how big my hubby's triceps are. I never thought of asking or even measuring. He's been working out since he was in his 20's. 10 or so years ago, he was doing curls with the straight bar with a lot of weight. He leaned back and then bounced the bar up and it collapsed L4 into L5 of his spine. It immediately paralyzed his right side. I personally think he was showing off. After two years of seeing doctors he was cleared to light lift. He lost all the muscle mass. But once back in the gym the muscles immediately came back, muscle memory. Now he's back into heavy lifting and is more careful. The doctors says that his spine is so full of arthritis but he doesn't feel it because of the muscle that is now surrounding/encasing the spine. I wouldn't call him a gym rat. We can't stand those kind.(lol) His job provides a state of the art facility and they want guys like him to stay fit. His job is to body guard federal court judges. So they want him in tip top shape.

So all I really want to know ...is what song the ...band of turkeys were playing? What kind of band were they? Rock? Blues? New age?
Was the lead turkey to die for?
How long did they play?
Were the bees dancing to any of it?
Oh my. LOL. No, I'm afraid it was a little simpler than that. There were three bumble bees Hanging around the flowers. And there was a little band of turkeys hanging out on the lawn. You know Thanksgiving turkeys.

I like your version better.

Good morning everybody

Good Morning Everyone!

We are tracking a tropical storm Dorian. I have planned a sunrise to sunset ride for august 3-4th, by motorcycle. I've got 30 members going. Hotels are booked, reservations are made. THIS CAN'T HAPPEN!!!(SCREAM!!!):(

Keeping my fingers crossed that it goes north west and heads back out into the Atlantic.

But, I should have known better to plan a trip like this during hurricane season.

This is what we're presently discussing:
"Here's my current take on the whole free will vs. omniscience thing; feel free to tear it apart:
Even in the absence of a precise definition of "free will" we can at least argue about what free will implies. Let's suppose that today I am thinking about whether to wear a white shirt to work tomorrow, and that I have not yet made up my mind. My limited understanding of free will suggests that there must be two possible futures: one in which I decide to wear the white shirt, and one in which I do not.
Define F to stand for the statement "I have free will" and W to stand for "I will decide to wear the white shirt". Then you've got the following premise, based on the above:
(P1) F => (pos W) and (pos ¬W)
where "X => Y" means "if X, it follows that Y", "pos" is short for "possibly" and "¬" denotes "it is not the case that...".
OK, now for omniscience. Any omniscient being knows the truth-value of every well-formed statement and does not believe anything self-contradictory. Anything an omniscient being believes is true. Anything it does not believe is false.
Let P denote the statement "an omniscient being knows I will decide to wear the white shirt", Q denote "an omniscient being knows I will not decide to wear the white shirt", and O denote "an omniscient being exists". From the definition of omniscience above, you get the following premises:
(P2) P => ¬pos ¬W
(P3) Q => ¬pos W
(P4) O => P or Q
Now it's a simple matter of letting the logical machinery do its work:
(C1) O => (¬pos ¬W) or (¬pos W), from (P2),(P3) and (P4)
(C2)(pos ¬W) and (pos W)=> ¬O, from (C1)
(C3) F => ¬O, from (P1) and (C2)
(C4)¬(F and O), from (C3)
There you have it, in (C4). It is not the case that I have free will and an omniscient being exists. Discuss."
WOW Susan! That's some pretty interesting stuff. Either it's too early for me or I haven't had enough coffee in my system to understand it. Hope you have a good day.

I don't know..I tend to agree with her. She just wanted to go on the lake. He was being a real jerk. Ask my wasband how many days I just wanted to go to the lake...just to hang out..while he laid about on the couch watching sports all weekend. Better yet..ask one of my children how they feel about never going anywhere as a family.

Careful...some of the answers are going to be real bitter like.

But...no doubt..I had to watch that real close to see if it was my daughter. She is a sensational fit/tantrum thrower. Me...I just get dark as night and plot!

Have a grate day, Denny
