What’s your favorite way to exercise? (if you do or don’t. Exercising one’s mind is a valid answer IMHO, because that’s my favorite.)

Listen, folks, it’s been a while since I’ve been in a workout groove but I can safely say inside an air conditioned gym is my favorite way to work out. I used to like the elliptical machine because it was easier on my knees than the treadmill. These days I have to admit I exercise my brain more often than the rest of me. I love doing crossword puzzles while I’m going to bed.

What’s more important to you – family or friends?

The people I love and care about — friends or family — are who’s important to me.

(a segue of sorts from last week’s SYW)..Have you ever voted for someone (in whatever venue – politics, contests, school elections) based solely on how they looked?


(silly one) How could carousels be spiced up so they are more exciting?

You could replace some of the animals with pogo stick kangaroos, safety helmet included of course. For the really adventurous folks there could be bungee cords that fling riders out and pull them back to the carousel at random intervals. That oughta keep people on their toes.

Please feel free to share something you’ve enjoyed about this September.

We’ve had a few days of cooler, seventy degree weather. It’s been glorious.
