I love labyrinth walking. I wear a pendant with a triskele, which usually faces out, and a labyrinth, which I wear facing in.

Guess neither league cares that the market will be flipping back and forth between channels and none of the advertisements will be seen.
WEBROVER that is exactly what I was doing last night with my USC TROJANS and DODGERS games overlapping! Right now I am switching between the Rays and NASCAR...just in time to see my fav Denny Hamlin blow a tire and hit the wall Good luck in your games.

Oh no you don't, Gary! You don't get to be the thread killer!!! I had to go to page 2 of the General Chatter to find this. Scary! I thought it was really dead. As in... DEAD AND GONE!

Whew. So glad I found it.

Random non-thread killing thought.

I think I'm going to switch to a new gym.

The trick is getting my life to be just interesting enough, because if I'm not careful, it snowballs and gets WAY too interesting to fit into a day.
It does sound like you get quite a bit of excitement. I'm going to an Indian Krishna temple to start learning meditation tonight. And I have a design for a labyrinth that I was going to try to put in my backyard when we moved in here. I think you've inspired me tojget back to it. Maybe after I stain the house, seed the lawn, refloor the kitchen and dining room, clean out the garage, etc, etc, etc.

BTW, what do y'all do when you have a fart waiting to come out, but you're stuck in a public place with no escape?

Ok, every time I go looking for this thread, it is on page 2. What a chore!

Don't know how to answer that one for you, Operator. Get outside? Go to the bathroom? Hold it in and be in pain?

Nessa - I posted about it here:
http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/show....php?p=2397265

Basically here's my update from this morning:

Well I went in this evening and joined. (It's a Gold's Gym, BTW)

The guy who came out to talk to me started out talking about this class and that class and I smiled and said, oh-so-sweetly, I'm really not interested in the classes ... here's what I want. And I laid out my list of what I was looking for, in addition to price. I basically said "Here's what I'm paying now, I won't pay more than that, I won't pay an initiation fee, I'd prefer to pay less than that."

He was, I think, a little shocked. And then he dropped the sales spiel, gave me the facts and offered me a rate that was $5 less than what I"m paying at LA Fitness.

I can put my LA Fitness membership on hold for up to 6 months. I have 30 days to decide if I want to cancel at Gold's w/out penalty. So I'll go for the next couple of weeks and see what I think.

First impressions are: In feel, it's a much more basic gym. LA Fitness is light and airy and has lots of machines and lots of classes and lots of people. Gold's is dark (lots of dark purple and gray), fewer machines, smaller. No basketball court, racquet ball court, or pool. The cardio machines are not as "fancy" with all the bells and whistles - they support the Precor bands, but it's not super high-tech.

But ... in choice it's much more diverse. Not only are there 3 classrooms that can be used during non class time for mat work, there are a ton (TON) of free weights, barbells, a huge kettlebell area, a huge mat area, an entire rack of swiss balls in various sizes and shapes, bosu balls, 2 punching bags, a rack of resistance bands. I was also impressed to see a good number of trainers out there WORKING with their clients - one guy was teaching a girl to box (a girl about the size I used to be when I started). Another trainer, a woman, was working with the resistance bands with a client. And so forth.

I still want to go for a while to see if it's going to work for me. Part of it is just a comfort level, too. I know my LA Fitness. I know where all the machines are and where all the weights are and so forth. I'm ever so slightly resistant to change (*grin*) so this pushes me out of my comfort zone.

On that day: Bucs lost, Rays lost, Kenseth just barely stayed the same in the standings and the Lightning lost in Europe.

However, yesterday the Rays beat the White Sox. On to the next level baby! DH is a Dodgers fan from childhood, but supports the Rays now. Ready and waiting for Friday - Rays vs. Red Sox. (My company bought out a competitor in Boston a few years ago and we have a bunch of Bostonians with us now. This will be interesting!!!!!)

Western Colorado is nice, sunny... might get to 71 or so. But, we're going to get cold and wet over the weekend.

Utah is pretty nice too, now that I'm on days off. But don't worry, it's gonna go to crap again about Sat. when I'll be on blast crew again and getting to walk around in it.

I lived in Colorado a long time ago. I still dream of driving over Wolf Creek Pass with the Aspens all aglow in the fall...such a wondrous sight! Every year in October I wish I was there. Crisp air, the pungent smell of fall and snow on the way.

But, I had a glorious day working in the garden in low 80's weather. Norhern California gets a great "Indian Summer". We are supposed to have frost this week, though.
