Exercise for People Over 60


I know you need this program.
For those of us over 60 – this is a great exercise regimen – for you young’uns out there (under 60), just keep it in mind until you reach that magic 60 number!

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room on each side.  With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides.  Hold them there as long as you can.  Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.  Each day you'll find that you

can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.  Then try 50-lb potato bags, and then eventually, try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.  (I'm currently at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

Arches National Park, Utah

Car owned by a gentle old man who just drove it so carefully...

Car owned by a gentle old man who just drove it so carefully...

This person had a great start in life.    Mr. Allen Swift:  Born - 1908 - Died  2010  This man owned and drove the same car for 82 years.

Can you imagine even having the same car for 82 years? Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield MA) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928. He drove it up until his death last year at the age of 102.  He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new.  Just thought you'd like to see it.

Rolls Royce Phantom 1928

It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death.
It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition.
 82 years - That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month). 1,070,000 that's miles not kilometers.  
 That's British engineering of a bygone era.  I don't think they make them like this anymore.

"F" Word

"F" Word

Quite frankly, the "F" word can be the ONLY word in the English language that accurately describes some situations . .

The word is 'FEAR' of course!
What in the world were you thinking?
Sometimes I worry about you . . .
