Exercise for over 40’s…

I came across this exercise suggested for the over 40's to build muscle strength in the arms and shoulders.

The article suggested doing it three days a week.

  1. Begin by standing on a comfortable, flat surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 1kg potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to hold for a full minute, then relax.

  2. Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 5kg potato bag. Then a 7kg potato bag and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 10kg potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

Kids and a Typewriter…

The kids discovered an old typewriter in the attic. Though it was old, it was still well preserved. Of course, dad had to explain…

He got a sheet of paper, put it in the machine, and started typing…

The kids were amazed, and started firing questions like:

Where do you plug it in?

Dad says "you don't have to plug it in".

Where are the batteries?

Dad replies "no batteries needed".

What software does it use?

Dad (smiling) says "no software required".

Kids: "WOW Dad! Why didn't they invent this LONG AGO?!"
