The Nutcracker

I am very excited about going to see "The Nutcracker" tomorrow at the San Diego Civic Theatre [link].

I know that this ballet is especially for children. But I guess that I've never really grown up completely. Because I love "The Nutcracker".

Workout at the "Y"
I have a full day with just going to The Nutcracker tomorrow afternoon. However, Saturday morning I am planning to also go to the library to exchange videos and then go to the YMCA to workout.

I have to push myself to workout at the "Y". But I do push.  Because I absolutely feel better by working out. Found out about feeling better by slacking off on trips to the "Y".

When my muscles are hard when I flex them, I definitely feel better.

I've changed my workout to sets of 10 on each machine and increasing the weight lifted each set until I fail to complete that set.

Before, I was simply doing sets with easy to lift weights. Not good enough for me to feel my best.


  1. I'm going to see The Nutcracker too....on the 17th. I can hardly wait. Enjoy :)

  2. George, thank you for your decision to continue blogging. I've been reading your blog for at least 8, or 9 years, and feel like you are part of my family. When you stopped blogging for quite a while it was like a piece of me was missing. Even though you don't post often it is still good to 'hear' from you. So happy you have been able to make the adjustment from 'nomad' to 'stix and brix' successfully. You were my original inspiration to become a nomad. Life is good....Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  3. George, Do you still have your electric bike? If so could you post a picture next time you go for a ride?

    Best wishes for continued health and happiness...

    1. Hi acheapguy,
      Yes! I still have my electric bike. I use the bike much more than I use my Honda Fit.

      I'll try to remember to publish a pic of my bike soon.
