  • Oh yeah........& I live in basement apartment; get no cell phone reception, so I HAVE to go outside, so I walk around the yard & driveway. Also, my apartment is rectangular, with storage in the middle, so when brushing my teeth with my cordless toothbrush--which goes for 2 minutes when you turn it on--I walk all around the place twice a day! Each time is over 300 steps! emoticon - by GINGERVISTA
