Move Stuff to Cheat Death
November 8th, 2022

Yes, I’ve been missing in action from weblogs. If I was still a Naval Academy Midshipman, I’d brace up and say NO EXCUSE Ma’am or Sir!  Yet that was many moons ago. My STRONG TO SAVE manuscript took precedence. So Generation X readers – be on the lookout fgr a Book release in mid-2023. Why did I choose the main Title STRONG to SAVE? And why will the sub-title focus on Generation X? There are three reasons for my title’s choice: I used to sing Eternal Father, Strong to SAVE as a venerable hymn for seafarers like me. There is just about nothing as important as Physical Strength to endure... Continue Reading

Twenty-eight summers left
July 16th, 2022

28 “As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.” Seneca Thanks to the Swedish Son of Stone (aka SoS) whose recent lyrics in 28 Summers Left fit me to a T: “Let’s make something great Of what is left now And focus on things That we have got now.” In a Camden interview about his unique rather unique song-writing, SoS confided that a theme of his music is “about the will to get back up again when life knocked you down…”  Not a bad theme for life – is it? One longevity study, that I believe to be darned accurate, suggests that with work and... Continue Reading

Power Potpourri
June 7th, 2022

Power is my theme for this potpourri of topics squeezed into one. Big C First, Kudos who are with us to celebrate National Cancer Survivor’s Day!         ‘Tis sad yet true that perhaps 20 percent of all cancers in our great country may be diet-related. Oy! We are what we eat… Estimates are that about 40% of Americans will develop cancer(s) in their lifetimes. Double Oy! In a bad news/good news way- the BIG “C” is our 3rd leading cause of morbidity in the USA. Right! Only Cardio-respiratory Disease and COVID viruses deaths were higher for the last two years. Cancer.org reported almost... Continue Reading

Weird ?!
April 15th, 2022

Weird In Shakespeare’s day, weird meant ‘having the power to control destiny’. Witches in the Bard’s MACBETH  gave rise to the sense ‘unearthly’ as Fates. With more than passing amusement, I noted that a once-in-lifetime “weird” astrological alignment happened yesterday. In full and open disclosure, I do peek at astrological predictions while wondering how much merit it is for both Jupiter and Neptune to align with Pisces after a period of 166 years.  Could it be that I and we “can expect a “mystical-slash-creative renaissance on both micro (personal) and macro (societal)... Continue Reading

Seasons Change, and so should you and I
March 20th, 2022

Guess Who? The Guess Who first sang its classic, NO TIME, in the summer of 1969. Ah, memories of those tough teen times come to me easily. Whether these NO TIME lyrics mean something profound or mean nothing is up to a listener to decide. Was it a Vietnam draft commentary by a Canadian? Or a reverse Dear John letter? I wonder why lyricist Randy Bachman first intended with this phrase: “Seasons change and so do I…” So, here I muse on the first day of Spring, 2022.  Do I invest a load of time thinking about my pro and con changes since 1969?  Or, should I invest my time and energy in future... Continue Reading

Moving past Madness
March 18th, 2022

Savings?! I am a firm believer in savings for one’s fiscal AND physical bank account.  But for sunlight? Not so much… You may recall that I applaud the legendary Muddy Waters who cautioned in song, “you know you can’t spend what you haven’t got.” You’ve made it into Daylight Saving Time, version 2022. That is unless you live in the smart states of Hawaii, Arizona that believe in standards. In full and open disclosure – for most of my 7-decades, I thought this annual time robbing move by our Government was plural – as in SAVINGS. Not! Our US Senate (that term stems from the same... Continue Reading

I enjoyed Sixty-nine
February 18th, 2022

Sixty-nine?! I offer 69 as an upper number of fitness years, of filling in the holes of life, rather than alluding to an urban dictionary term. As the world, worm and COVID turn, I relish this chance to reflect on my 69 laps around our sun. Wow – we’re in our third year of the New Abnormal life caused by a virus. Oy!   I advocate that seventy is the new forty, so this Pisces is truly looking forward to his 70th orbit.  I hope that my lessons learned to this point may help you as well… If you are reading this post, you are a co-survivor of a scary and deadly pandemic. Whew! A Frosty spoiler... Continue Reading

Yippee or Yips in 22?
January 6th, 2022

‘Tis The Season Happy Twelfth Night of this Holiday season. Citing the Bard in Act 2, “In delay there lies no plenty.” His Twelfth Night romance also had desire as a theme, so let’s build on such desire without delay… If you are like me, most Christmas trimmings are tucked away, and resolve for healthy habits in our New Year of 2022 is percolating.  Note that I didn’t write “resolution”, as the batting average for New Year’s Resolutions is not laudable. You’ve probably been besieged by year-end and New You platitudes, so I intend to avert those. What we Professional Trainers... Continue Reading

Healthy Holiday Habits to begin your best possible 2022!
December 27th, 2021

No Partridge in a Pear Tree Ladies and Gentlemen – do your very best to Have a: On this third day of Christmas, I offer a Holiday “card” with 12 healthy thoughts and deeds as you prepare for Auld Lang Syne: Please note that these, or any number of healthy habits are NOT easy to sustain, as most folks fall off their Resolution Wagons by Valentine’s Day each year. It is my goal to help you establish and sustain key habits to live longer and better. Why not start with a personal affirmation that 2022 will be your best year – yet? KABOOM.   Take a few moments to express your commitment... Continue Reading

Holiday Hallmarks
December 6th, 2021

Advent Before sharing my thoughts on Hallmarks as “proofs” of your KABOOMER excellence, I sadly note the passage of a great American. RIP Senator! One of our Greatest Generation, Kansan Bob Dole, faded away yesterday. This image is from his postwar recovery years after his left arm was shattered in combat. Credit: NBC News Dole was the real deal for sacrifice and selfless service. I dedicate this Hallmark post to those of his generation who fought the good fight to make our crazy world a finer place to live, work and play. If that Army hero will allow me to share a naval saying with which... Continue Reading
