    Watched the video. Couple of issues for me. First 10 to 20 were legit, but after that he stopped breaking the 90 degree plane. This is still an absolutely gargantuan and grueling undertaking. Also I can't fathom how he can use such a wide grip. I think my shoulders would actually pop off of my body. I pop out sets of 70-80 every 15 minutes up to 500 6 days a week. I assume not all of mine are picture perfect form either, but I go a little slower than him to try to keep my form tight(ish)

    Not an ounce of argument from me on this point.


    As he even notes, the military has a different standard. That's where I had to do my pushups.

    I can't comment - I'm the one in the 2200 push up challenge that has to do wall push ups. I can't do real ones but I figured it might be the thought that counts.

    Absolutely it is and wall push-ups 100% count if itís a challenge!

    I just vacuumed and cleaned the downstairs bathroom for a visitor this afternoon, so I'm feeling rather special.

    In a way, yes...I've got more than I need, and I'll let her take a bunch if she wants it...she's my number one barter partner, this is just another example of that...my own mulch work has again been suspended due to rain, and there's a rumor we may get an inch of snow tonight, jeopardizing tomorrow's mulching agenda.

    Iím beginning to think you donít want to mulch. Wait too long and youíll have a pile of dirt!

    I have a love/hate relationship with the pile, but once I get scooping and tossing, I'm all in...a couple more days should do it, with a fair amount left over for future plant acquisitions...rained pretty hard all day, don't feel bad about not mulching today.

    And my, the rain makes the mulch and blooming plants and flowers look oh so nice.

    The rain (and subsequent pooling of water in my yard) left quite a bit of mulch scattered about. I'm going to have to rake/shovel it when the rain stops.

    Pool nearly empty. Rescued one dumb squirrel, still chasing a few frogs.

    Itís always a little pond-y when first reopening but it got dirtier than normal this year since weíre cleaning it out and replacing the liner.

    Wow. Thought it was usually a Mother's Day affair, least it was in my day.

    I look forward to hearing (on this thread or by PM) how she enjoyed the year. Certainly not a tropical year.

    DaughterPK helped with sorority rush at U of A this fall — the rules were very restrictive. I hope your daughter’s next 3 years are a more typical college experience!

    Yes, I am aware I need to sweep the pollen off my porch, but . . .

    Any idea what critter made this? I'm thinking coyote. A smaller one.
