I definately need to cut back on the beer if I'm going to ever get anything close to ripped - aka the "six pack"...
My hip and ankle are doing better. As is my shoulder. I think going to the chiropractor is helpful.

Kids are running amoc for summer. We're gonna have some practice, and hopefully some vocals in the next couple of weeks.

GOOD MOVES FOR BAD KNEES
Knees can end up Tin Man creaky or Bionic Woman supple. It's your choice.
The secret to avoiding knee arthritis: Don't sit on the sidelines. Just ask a group of midlife adults who already had knee problems -- a virtual invitation to osteoarthritis. After doing basic weight-bearing exercises 3 times a week for 4 months, they'd squatted, lunged, and stepped their way to real rewards. The evidence: fewer aches, stronger muscles, and measurably healthier cartilage.
SUN KIND OF VITAMIN
Is vitamin D powerful enough to go head-to-head with cancer?
Yes, according to a growing body of evidence. High levels of vitamin D have been found to protect against several kinds of cancer, particularly those of the digestive system: mouth, throat, stomach, and colon. While many of us think we get plenty of vitamin D from milk or a multivitamin, it turns out that the best source is the sun. Its rays trigger your body to produce the nutrient, and a 10-20 minute stroll each day yields an abundant dose.
