My relations are okay, flooding in Manila and the province are alright, to my knowledge. If you have a couple bucks to spare, it will help. I'd suggest specifying "100% of donation to direct aid", but that's just me. Our small dudes gave, it'... Read more

Sunny and beautiful today, no excuse not to go out, although it was slightly cool. Mr. Tiny and I took the opportunity to get in some outside time, went for a walk to take care of some errands, and he requested we bring the ramp to the park... Read more

Yesterday I took the opportunity to check out the progress on one of the final segments on the Great Allegheny Passage, connecting our city to DC with a continuous bike trail. Took Sunstreaker on railroad ballast that was next to the part... Read more

Hope everyone had a great Easter! On the run up to the holiday, I scheduled poorly and was only able to get in a short 17 minutes strength training on Saturday, what is supposed to be my heavy day. Happens, poor scheduling on my part and t... Read more

My back is still tweaked from about 2 weeks ago when I had a lifting session and I performed a snatch with poor form (probably because it was too heavy, that's on me) so I only scheduled one strength training session this week in anticipation fo... Read more

I'm going to permit myself a moment to be self-satisfied. Pleased that I hit 1000 fitness this month, that's a 2 month streak. Trending positively, which is good considering that I'm coming off a negative 2 month streak where I struggled to ge... Read more
