    What is the purpose of the blues?

    Among the members of the Amalgamated Union of Philosophers, Sages, Luminaries and Other Thinking Persons , we call that a deja boo boo.

    What is the purpose of the blues?

    The Blues came about from a collision of musical styles. "The blues has deep roots in American history, particularly African-American history. The blues originated on Southern plantations in the 19th Century. Its inventors were slaves, ex-slaves and the descendants of slaves—African-American sharecroppers who sang as they toiled in the cotton and vegetable fields. It's generally accepted that the music evolved from African spirituals, African chants, work songs, field hollers, rural fife and drum music, revivalist hymns, and country dance music..." Oh, you meant the blues... all herd animals get the blues. But they don't all get to sing about it.

    Home exercise equipment

    Some options, I have a TRX. That, or it's imitators, are handy. The catch is you want a high attachment for some exercises, and a lower one for others. I have a ton of bands. I have some heavy duty bands that I cut to turn into straps. I used to use them for squats, deadlifts and pulldown exercises. I like the 1 3/4" size. I have 3 of those, and one 2". https://www.performbetter.com/categories/band-tubing/general-bands-tubing I've made PT exercises with bands and mini-bands part of my warmup. I use bands for regular exercises, but my wonky shoulders need all the help they can get. This is one of my warmup exercises, and it's fantastic. I made a small modification to it. On the angled movements, instead I put one arm at 45 degrees, and the other just a little below level. When I bring them back in, the movement is gently curved.That gets the rotational muscles a little better.

    We're too busy singing to put anybody down

    That's one of the things that sucks about being old, everybody is dying.

    So I got my new bed

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CGVP3NV/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I ordered that one, should get here next week. The wife has been talking up a 360 buck bed frame, I found one on Amazon from the same company for $200. So we cut a deal, she gets the frame and the topper. The frame is here, we need to get some plywood, we're not going to use the box spring, that would take us about 3 feet above the floor, I don't want enough time to wake up and contemplate my doom..

    A thought about Bridget Fonda

    How many died. Nobody. This is about butthurt, and nothing else.

    A thought about Bridget Fonda

    Some young men go to war to impress women, to get more attractive, higher status women. So when Jane Fonda went to Hanoi, they felt snubbed. That was a time nearly everyone was making mistakes, and that was one of the small ones.

    A thought about Bridget Fonda

    I didn't like Orange is the New Black, either. But then I can't imagine ranting about it. It's clearly aimed at an audience that isn't me. You could elucidate, and enumerate, your specific objections, to clarify. But that isn't going to happen.

    Someone needs to squash this thread.

    On scale of 1 - 10, how do you feel right now?

    Chronic bronchitis would be the likely culprit. You might want to see your Doc before you descend into pnuemonia. Don't ask how I know.
