Taking It Easy


Fitness After 50

This weekend I took it fairly easy as far as my personal fitness program was concerned. On Friday Night I went to Shapes and worked my arms and legs, I didn’t seem to have much jam on Saturday and Sunday. There were no weight workouts on these two days. I kept it down to one forty minute bike ride per day. The weather was very hot this weekend so this may have contributed to my lack of energy. Oh well, Monday starts a new week of training.

Nightmares and Dreamscapes


Nightmares and Dreamscapes

Nightmares and Dreamscapes is Stephen King’s best collection of short stories. In his introduction Mr. King basically explains what makes him write what he writes. He makes it sound like he almost can’t help himself from writing such great stories. I have Nightmares and Dreamscapes in hardcover, paperback, audio cassette version. I also have it downloaded from audible.com as an audio book. I have read the book and all the stories are great. Many of these short stories will shake the reader up and are not recommended for those of us with a weak heart or an easily upset stomach. My favorite stories from the Nightmares and Dreamscapes collection are Chattery Teeth and The Moving Finger. These two are really classic short stories in this genre.

Tim: From this minute on, the only orders you are to obey are the ones given by me! Now get the lead out! I’m starving!

Tim: Aye, aye sir.

Narrator: Tim gets into his old rusted out Plymouth and leaves for Corona, New Mexico.

Act Six Scene II

Narrator: After leaving the hospital Dennis drives back to the funeral home. He is still wondering what is going on at the hospital. Dennis immediately resumes work embalming the body on his work table.

Dennis (to himself): If I put a pot of coffee on now it might keep me awake for several hours yet. I might be able to get my work done by morning and not have to postpone tomorrow’s funeral.

Narrator: Just as Dennis starts working the phone rings.

Nurse Jane: Dennis, I’ve got to talk to you right now. Meet me at Dusty’s Tavern in ten minutes. I can’t say any more on the phone. It could be bugged.

Dennis: Calm down Jane. I’m leaving for Dusty’s right now. Something very weird is going on at the hospital and I think that you may have some of the answers I need.

Narrator: Dennis gets in his hearse and drives to the tavern. As soon as Dennis enters the bar he sees Jane waving to him from the back of the tavern. Floyd is sitting in a stool at the bartender’s front counter talking to Dusty.

Dusty: Aren’t you going to the radio station to do your interview this evening?

Floyd the barber: Well, I’m scheduled to. You know what Dusty? I don’t think I’m even going to show up for my interview tonight.

Dusty: Why not Floyd? I thought you liked Rick and Dwight’s show.

Floyd: I used to, but lately it’s turned into a third rate Jerry Springer show. This afternoon they had this joker on talking about riding in an army truck with a bunch of creatures from outer space. I tell you, man that program’s going to the dogs.

Dusty: That’s why you have to do your interview tonight. You might be able to bring some credibility back to the show.

Floyd: You’re probably right, Dusty. I don’t want to let my fans down.

The Beach Boys Live in Concert 1980


The Beach Boys in Concert 1980

This evening I had the privilege of watching the Beach Boys play a concert in England in 1080. The name of this DVD is Good Timin’. This is a very appropriate title as this was one of those special Beach Boys concerts in which all the members of the band (including Brian Wilson) were present and were playing in top form. This DVD is a great piece of musical history and is just a plain joy to watch.

Why Casey Anthony Got a Not Guilty Verdict


Why Casey Anthony Got a Not Guilty Verdict

1) Jose Baez and his team had an effective strategy no matter what people thought at the time. Mr. Baez’s opening statement was considered to be a poor trial strategy. The public was wondering how Jose Baez would be able to prove his allegations against George and Lee Anthony. As it turned out Baez didn’t need to prove it. He just had to plant the idea in the jury’s heads. The job of the defense is to create reasonable doubt.
2) George Anthony did not make a credible witness. On the witness stand George was testy and evasive. I think more people believed that he had an affair with River Cruz than didn’t.
3) There wasn’t enough evidence that Casey Anthony was a “bad mother” before the disappearance of Caylee. There was no evidence that Casey had either inflicted physical or emotional abuse towards her daughter. On the contrary there were several witnesses who testified that Casey acted in a very loving manner towards little Caylee. It would be asking a lot of the jury to ask them to wrap their heads around the idea that a loving mother could suddenly decide that she needed to murder her little girl.

Dennis: I’m Dennis Morris, the new town mortician. The General told me to meet him here.

Narrator: Just then the General pulls up to the hospital entrance in his jeep.

General Kane: He’s telling the truth men. Release him immediately. Dennis did you bring along the four coffins I ordered?

Dennis: Yes sir. They’re in the back of the hearse.

General Kane: Good work Dennis. Okay, security personnel, unload the hearse on the double.

Tim: Sir, unloading hearses isn’t in our job descriptions.

General Kane: Maybe you’d rather eat a live grenade.

Tim: Well, I guess our union doesn’t need to find out about this.

General Kane: That’s a wise decision, Tim. Dennis, did you remember my cigars and pepperoni sticks?

Dennis: Sorry sir! I got so busy that I forgot all about them.

General Kane: Dennis, do you have any idea how hungry I am? I’ve been so busy today dealing with idiot dog catchers and ranchers that can’t keep their mouths shut that I missed my lunch and my dinner. Tim, there’s a Burger King and Seven-Eleven in Corona about thirty miles from here. Your next orders are to get in your car and bring me three Double Whoppers with cheese and two large fries at Burger King. After that head over to the Seven-Eleven and get me a pack of White Owl cigars and a package of pepperoni sticks.

Tim: Sir, we have strict orders from our supervisor not to leave the hospital until our shifts are over.

Tim: From this minute on, the only orders you are to obey are the ones given by me! Now get the lead out! I’m starving!

Tim: Aye, aye sir.

Narrator: Tim gets into his old rusted out Plymouth and leaves for Corona, New Mexico.

Why Do People Get Crazy When They Go To Work?


Why Do People Get Crazy When They Go to Work?

Most people seem to undergo some kind of strange and sometimes evil metamorphosis when they leave their homes and enter their workplace. Your life at home and you life at work are often like living in two alternate universes. Your home situation may be calm and peaceful or it may be very stressful. However, once you enter the workplace it is often highly stressful but produces a totally different form of stress to what you experience at home. Every work site contains both common work viruses and viruses that are unique to that particular setting.
