Reasons You Should Buy a New Car

Sunday, June 12, 2011

- Your passenger seat is on the National Register of Historic Places.
- Instead of an air bag, there is a whoopee cushion taped to your steering wheel.
- You lose the stoplight challenge to a 14 year old on a moped.
- 15 minute Jiffy Lube needs to keep you car for 3 days.
- When you gas up, the attendant asks, "Can I re-duct tape that windshield for you?"
- Thieves repeatedly break in your car just to steal the "Club".
- While sitting at a stop light, people keep running up to you and asking if anyone was hurt.
- For the last five years, you've had to settle for making "vroom, vroom' noises while in the driveway.
- You keep losing dates on left turns.

Did You Ever Wonder?

Monday, May 23, 2011

If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?

Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

When someone asks you, A penny for your thoughts, and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny? Or do you get change?

Why is the man (or woman) who invests all your money called a broker?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages? It's just stale bread to begin with.

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person drives a race car not called a racist?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

    That all deals with usage. Here we are concerned with weight loss. Stay focused on the objective and you will succeed. Go for it. You can do it.

Strong Hands, Better Life

Monday, May 16, 2011

I just had to laugh when I read "The YOU Docs" for today (Drs Mehmet Oz and Mike Roizen)...where it says about the one-armed push up "good luck with that!". You can get their daily article by going to:

www.arcamax.com/

"You don't have to be a boxing champ or a concert cellist (go, Yo-Yo Ma!) to need strong hands. Just imagine trying to get through a day without using your grip. How could Mehmet come to the rescue when Lisa Oz says, "Honey, can you open this?" How could Dr. Mike lift his weights or write his daily thank-yous? How long could you massage your lover's back (and maybe other parts too)?

"And there's this: Building hand strength in midlife protects you from disabilities later on and keeps you active longer. It's also critical to walking a dog, carrying groceries, opening paint, re-arranging furniture and attempting a one-armed pushup (good luck with that). Strong hands keep your life and your body running as smoothly as a new car.

"Ready to get a grip? Here's how:

"Pop bubble wrap. Popping bubbles is an easy (and addictive) way to start.

"Squeeze a ball or play with clay. Steal Rover's tennis ball and squeeze it 10 times. Or take a clump of the kids' modeling clay and start rolling, pinching and squeezing it. After several minutes, the clay and your hands should be warm and supple. (Now make something!)

"Form a few "O's." Touch your thumb to each fingertip and repeat 10 times per hand. Advance to squeezing and holding the O's for a few seconds.

"Push against a wall. Hold your hands out in front of you and press gently against a wall. Bonus: This stretch can help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.

"Now give yourself a hand!"

    You have got to be right. Maybe we need a Senior's section in our exercises.

God Bless
