This afternoon at El Cerrito Barnes & Noble I picked up a book titled You: Staying Young by Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz and on page 321 found a chart of how good a condition a male is supposed to be in for various ages. Well, I am now 72-1/4 so I am supposed to be able to do between 10 and 14 sit-ups and 6 to 9 push-ups. I was able to do 30 sit-ups and 16 manly style push-ups without too much strain, and could have done several more if there were a money bet. If I don’t tell anyone, maybe I can make a few bucks. I haven’t done a sit-up or a push-up for many years and it is a wonder I could do any at all. Before I started there was a bit of apprehension as to whether it was possible to do a single one of either.
Today, I posted something to – flickr – for the first time. It was necessary to create an account, and there was some fuss trying to get some of my bland photos selected and uploaded. I don’t know why there isn’t an accepted standard way of asking questions, and standard terminology for what is under various menus. I know that is but a feeble howl into the trackless night! I put up some photos taken around El Cerrito the last few days mostly of some unusual fog in the Plaza and one of the BART station. I don’t remember seeing fog here for a long time, but then I don’t get up very early either so by the time I am usually up it is usually sunny.
