    Leaves on the court in the fall

    I haven't played on a court with many leaves. I do have an electric leaf blower now though. I suppose if that issue should come up I'll have an answer. When I was a kid, and my parents would ask me to rake leaves, I would point out that we should leave them alone. It is why they were named...

    Oldest Living Americans

    Don't know. I read the article many years ago and don't recall their theories, if any where mentioned. Ever since though I've noticed when tall basketball players pass away, which tends to be younger than the average it seems.

    Oldest Living Americans

    I once read that height plays a roll in life expectancy. It said that men and women of the same height have similar life spans. hard to say if that is true or not, but I have noticed in my family shorter guys tend to live longer. that hasn't always been the case though. When i worked on my...

    Where do the Rockies rank?

    Hmmm, nice pictures. I wish I was i the cool mountains right now. It is a bit on the hot side in Florida right now. They remind me of the Cascade mountains, an area I used to frequent often when younger. The few times I've been in the rocky mountains I had a good time. My sister and her...

    I'm tired of fixing things with my body...

    I was quite pleased here of late in that a long term knee and hand arthritis type issue has resolved once I stopped eating all beef, pork and dairy products. I'm eating a lot of fish. I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I'm pleased about it not having that pain. Avoiding mammal meats...

    Your take on Steve jobs?

    About the only thing that comes to mind for me with Steve Jobs is my parents laughing when they learned where he want to college for awhile. My folks are from Oregon. They didn't think all that highly of the Portland Or. college he briefly attended. It wasn't the academics that made them...

    The health of Tennis as a sport moving forward, what are your sentiments.

    I don't know. Since moving here to Florida I haven't really reached out much to the tennis clubs and other local players. The lady that lives next door to me is much more into playing tennis than I anymore. She is a top player locally. When I see her next i'll bring the topic up as I'm...

    The health of Tennis as a sport moving forward, what are your sentiments.

    Where I live, at one time the area was big into playing tennis. Tennis courts can be found everywhere around here. Yet today I rarely see anyone playing tennis. Instead it is the pickle ball courts that are crowded and popular. One HOA I'm familiar with is even talking about converting the...

    Biking anyone?

    I just recently bought an electric bike. This is my second e-bike that I've owned. The Dutch made electric bike I first bought had broke down, again. To fix it cost the same as buying a new bike. So I bought local this time, another electric bicycle and I love it. It is lots of fun to bike...

    For me, if I'm awake at 3:00 and not tired I get up and eat breakfast. Then breakfast makes me tired and I end up passing out on the couch for an hour.

    Supplements for Athletes over 50?

    I've owned an ebike for awhile. I have a Van Moof electric bike that no longer works. The company has been the pits with service and repairs and I've given up on it.

    I'm falling for pickleball...

    As I like to joke, the vegetable sports are becoming more popular around here too. I rarely see people playing tennis anymore. I've suspected the increasing power of tennis racquets, and how fast tennis balls travel anymore, is turning off the older crowd from playing tennis. That is my guess.

    A former neighbor of mine in Florida was from Finland. Lets see, she liked to ski, taught skiing some in the winter out west, and well was married to a bald wealthy American playboy that was likely twice her age. They seemed to like each other so it worked.

    Hmmmm..... I guess dairy cows come to mind when I think of New Zealand. Where I used to work at a NZ salesman involved in dairy farming came to visit us in America. Chatty nice fellow that knew a tremendous amount about dairy farming and mad cow disease.
