The Flexible Ross Sisters

Thursday, May 13, 2010

Everyone has a talent, right? Well, some talents are a little weirder than others. The Ross sisters were singers and dancers. But they were best known as unbelievably flexible contortionists. This performance is from the 1944 film Broadway Rhythm. Some of their moves don't even seem possible.

    Can you say double jointed? That was quite a dramatic exit too.

    Holy Schnikes Batman! Seriously?!? I have two sisters too...but I have NEVER made an exit quite like that! It's good to be flexible...but I'm thinking I'll never quite be able to clean my ears with my toes...and I'm ok with that. Cool find!

    I thought this was funny and vaguely remember seeing it somewhere before but can't remember. Viewing it inspired me to look up some of the old arcade style games and download them and play them again. My mother really enjoyed the old Space Invaders and Asteroids and has been bugging me to find her a downloadable version so she can play them again.

What a Beautiful Day here in Northwest Florida

Monday, May 10, 2010

Awoke to yet another terrific morning with the birds already chirping away, a gentle breeze swaying the tree tops, sun shining and warming up to a pleasant 75 this morning. Great time for a walk so I went for a short one because I didn't want to reinjury my feet. Came back and rode my recumbent while watching the Dr Oz afternoon show and also did my strength training both in the morning and later this afternoon. I have to spread it out as I get too tired when I try to do it in one session.
I decided I wanted another computer so late this afternoon I went shopping and picked up a new laptop. Wished I'd remembered to get a hand mouse for it too as I really don't like using the touchpad. This laptop is compatible with my home wireless linksystem and has a built-in webcam so it'll be compatible with my Skype account and I can use it elsewhere in the house untethered. Looking forward to trying it out this Wednesday when I have a conversation skeduled with a friend in Georgia.
Enough about that, let me share my humor find for the day, this is Russell Peters:

    I gotta get with the times. I signed up for a Skype account last year, but I never used it.

Love those funny videos.... they spark my day.

    Watched the clip---hes good, will have to check a few more of the clips later, thanks for sharing these. Hope you enjoy that new lap top computer. We have one that I use when we go on vacation( usually use the dektop and hubby uses the laptop). So everytime I use it, it takes me a couple of days to figure it out again( computer challenged is me).

No Excuse Not to Exercise Today

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Awoke this morning still feeling tired and my feet were still sore from my long walk yesterday afternoon. Decided that it was such a beautiful day outside, sunny with temp of 75, lower humidity than yesterday and there was a steady breeze!
So went outside did my 3 mile walk and then came inside to inspect my feet. Since I'm a diabetic its important I do this daily and especially every time I exercise or do anything with a lot of walking. Sure enough both feet, well the toes, have regular blisters and blood blisters. So looks like tomorrow I'll have to limit my aerobics to riding my recumbent bike. Doesn't interfere with my using resistance bands, my own body weight and the ball as well as some dumbbells.

Hope all had a terrific Mother's Day.

Got to have a chuckle and found this, hope you enjoy it too.

Sorry about your sore feet. You do have to be very careful. I know how it feels when you have all the determination to work out but your body has limits.
