It's finally Spring! That means emerging from my basement exercise regimen. No more weights, boxing, walking in circles for 6 months. I can get my exercise by gardening, golfing, jogging/walking/hiking, etc.--all in the great outdoors. Yippee!!

G.C.: I left a comment on that "article" at the food group. Thanks.

I just read that some 70% of imported extra-virgin olive oil in the U.S. is substandard, possibly adulterated or even fake! (Italy has a police branch trained to literally use the smell test.)

According to this article, Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (the high-quality house brand from Costco) passed UCDavis's taste and chemistry tests (which many imported brands don't).

This article talks about heart health, and says that exercise will not counteract the bad effects of eating wrong, and also that too much exercise is as bad for the heart, as not exercising at all:

However, the part that annoyed me is that many doctors at the American Heart Association meeting last year when researchers held a seminar to discuss the new findings, feared that the public would get the wrong message about exercise.

If someone is stupid enough to get the wrong message in such a simple finding, then I think perhaps we would be better off without them.

That was so funny ...

As a sometime mini Schwarzenegger myself, I take umbrage at the gorilla comments :)

That's it ! If someone doesn't tell me who the drugged gorilla is, I'm going to go ape-shit !

I don't want to know, Napoleon, I hate the type. And the dog doesn't seem to like it too.

Who's the drugged out gorilla holding the dog in the group mascot ?
