MarkO

Way to go, Charlie.

Melinda Romanoff

Good luck, Charlie! And well done!

Clarice

Yes, it is.

peter

That is inspiring. I had dinner with some family members and one of my relatives mentioned she had high triglycerides. Believe it or not, high carbs makes that worse.LUN

henry

Charlie, formal workouts are tough to start. I'm glad you you have co-conspirators who believe in variety. Sorry to hear about the gout, that is one involuntary group I'd like to get out of myself. If you discover anything that works, let us know!

Thomas Collins

Enjoyable reading on both you fitness regime and your comments on Buddhism, Charlie. No, I didn't see the moonwalking bear.

All the best in your goal to step up the body moving aspect of your fitness regime, and to keep up on the nutrition aspect.

(A) nuther Bub

Good job, Charlie. There's no turning back now. Happy times lie ahead. Heartiest congratulations for your progress so far.

Threadkiller

Proud of you Charlie! There is no time like the present!

Try these two exercises in modertation:

I'll be in Denver in May, BTW.

Danube of Thought iPad

Bravo Zulu, Charlie. And you too, Clarice--first two things I read today.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Congratulations, Charlie.

What, me jane?

Sounds like a paleo exercise regime, too; follow monkeys around in the trees all day, and run like Hell from snakes twice a week.
=================

Barbara

Well done, Charlie! I look forward to hearing more about your success and how you rate the use and efficacy of Pilates in your workout regime.

Barbara
...a paleo exercise regime, too; follow monkeys around in the trees all day, and run like Hell from snakes twice a week.

Kim,

That sounds very much like the "form of exercise" that I got when I was working in the "business" world. At least it felt like it.

caro

Kudos, Charlie. I have been going the low carb route as well. Feel great and guilty when eating all that bacon. And full cream in my coffee.

Best discovery is what you can do with cauliflower.

sbw

Basking in ChaCo's glow.

You go, ChaCo!

Agent J

Here is an idea for some of you prolific writers, come up with a "Caveman" diet..you can only eat what you gather, nothing processed..

Congrats Charlie, having watched my wife struggle with the many diets the Doctors would put her on, then to watch her find ways not to comply, (human nature.) I can understand what you are going through.

O/T Our County Sheriff has stated that he, an he alone, has been designated to protect the Citizens of this county..He has stated that if the Government messes with the 2nd Amendment, by placing any type of restriction on it, that he, an his office will not enforce it..He further states that in order for ANY other law enforcement agency, from either State or Federal enters this County, to conduct official business, they have to have his authorization. I do not know if this is correct or not, it sounds good, an I support him..Besides he lives just a mile an half down the road..an like a good neighbor, etc.

Frau Blumenkohl

"Best discovery is what you can do with cauliflower."

Watch it, caro. This is a family site.

maryrose

AgentJ:
If more officers of the law took your sheriff's stance this whole gun game would be over.
Right now there is no way. Begich, Landrieu, or Manchin can afford to vote yes on resticting guns. That just won't happen
Interesting that Scott Brown is deciding whether he would run for senate again. What are his real chances against Markey? Markey of course regrets letting Warren get the jump on him for a senate seat.

maryrose

Frau:
You are so funny wrt the cauliflower remark. My comment was going to be that I love cauliflower,but yours is much better. That's another reason why I love Caro's comments.

Frau Blumenkohl

AgentJ - anything for sale in your neighborhood? CA is coming after these next.

Frau Blumenkohl

Charlie and Clarice - Bravo! and Brava! on the *good* Sunday reading.

Jack is Back

AgentJ,

I posted on the other thread about the Sherrif in Jackson County, Kentucky basicall doing the same thing. It won't happen in my county since we just elected an ex-New York cop and lawyer to be our new sheriff. I am sure he has been brainwashed enough by Bloomie and his ilk that he is ready to do the business of the Lightbringer and his mad Consigliori, the High Sheriff of Executive Power Smilin' Joe of Scranton.

Beasts of England

Speaking of fitness, Ig's delight - Katherine Webb, courtesy of Brent Musburger - will be showing off the product of her workouts in the upcoming SI swimsuit issue.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Mrs. Ig is Ig's delight.
Miss Webb is merely a pleasant distraction.

Rick Ballard

The nullification process will shift gears when a state legislature rejects Uncle Sugar's dough for education or Medicaid. Oklahoma or Kansas would be my bets for first with a "sod off Uncle Sugar" and education before Medicaid, although rejection of Medicaid accompanied by much more stringent eligibility requirements for state aid would have a faster payback.

Agent J

Our County is outstanding when it comes to individual liberty's. I think that we are the only County within the State of Missouri that does not have any County Zoning..None, other then the State laws that require us to have certain officials. ..the last Zoning proposal got beat so bad (at least 4 to 1) that the County Officials have said that they will not entertain any discussion on the matter..The last primary we had a person that was running for the Judgeship of the County Commission..advocated Zoning..Came in last of a field of four..I live within 45 miles of downtown Kansas City Mo. Lot of farming, but no problems that can not be taken care of locally..

Agent J

Through marksmanship or fire..:-)

Clarice

Thanks.

Frau, you had me laughing out loud.

glasater

Despite Frau's warning about cauliflower...I'd like to learn from Caro what she's been doing with the vegetable : )

And I could never give up Frau's favorite fruit - that being the apple. I've found a new variety that is fab! It's called Envy and is marvelously sweet and crunchy!

Charlie (Colorado)

Thanks, everyone!

Barbara, I've been a Pilates advocate for years; I got off it during my interval of relative poverty when I was trying to make a living solely by writing, got back involved, and then got off it again during my mother's terminal illness, during which I spent entirely too much time in hospitals and ate entirely too many meals handed to my through the driver-side window. But my Pilates friends in Boulder are among the best in the world, and I should have quite a lot more to say.

henry, re the gout, this high-protein high-fat diet is inherently tough for gout. But I still think my blood sugar is the most important issue right now. When my weight is reasonable and my A1c is in the 5's I'll revisit that. As you say, care to keep well hydrated is important.

TK, thanks for the videos -- I did the Hindu Pushups as "judo pushups" when I was heavily involved in martial arts. I might go easy on the Hindu Squats since I've got a history of knee issues.

It should be easy to find me when you're in the area.

Charlie (Colorado)

Sounds like a paleo exercise regime, too; follow monkeys around in the trees all day, and run like Hell from snakes twice a week.

That's actually a very interesting insight. Hm.

marlene

We've returned from an outstanding day of handgun training.The instructors were former military/law enforcement and currently train federal law enforcement.In the morning we had classroom instruction,with safety as the first priority.In the afternoon,we went to the shooting range and I'll admit,I went weak in the knees after firing my first round.It was an intense experience! I'm left-handed,but learned my right index finger is a stronger trigger finger.
The instructors didn't want to talk about politics or Biden's proposals,except to say that ammo will probably be highly taxed. They mentioned that the inventory at the pro shop was almost depleted. A very interesting day!

Jack is Back

OT: My French BIL is in Paris at the Anti-Gay Marriage protest.

According to this article in Bloomberg (ugh!) over 300K+ showed up. My BIL thought it would be about that. Still it probably will go through with strings attached.(chaînes de caractères jointes).

In other news, Seattle seems to want to shrug off the jet lag and make a game of it in Atlanta. Not surprising when you remember Atlatnta's dismal record in the playoffs. In the 4th Q and its 27-24 Atlanta after a Seattle INT and subsequent score.

Jack is Back

It should be easy to find me when you're in the area.

Not if you keep shrinking, Charlie:)

Keep it up and listen to no one but your body.

Jack is Back

Well, its game on in Atlanta. I was wrong on the score - its 27-21 Atlanta with 2:25 to go and Seattle has the ball. The Falcons just cannot kill the beast in the 4th quarter. Amazing.

Jack is Back

Seattle just tied it up with 30+ seconds remaining. Now if they make the extra pt. then they lead by one. Unbelieavalbe how history can repeat itself year, after year, after year in Atlanta.

Thomas Collins

Longest commercial break of the seaon for Seahawks and Falcons fans.

Porchlight

Congrats Chaco!

Awesome football so far this weekend.

Thomas Collins

Longwell gets the point after. Seattle up 28-27.

Seattle did this to the Pats this year. Pete Carroll has molded a tough team. And Russell Wilson is one hell of a pressure time QB.

Falcons have two timeouts.

Thomas Collins

Falcons and Seahawks fans all relaxed?

Stephanie

holy shnit!!!

Jack is Back

How about those red apples. Atlanta snatches victory from the jaws of defeat - it appears - still 8 seconds left for Seattle.

Thomas Collins

Falcons take the lead 30-28.

Thomas Collins

Wow. This game has everything. I say do the hail mary.

henry

Chaco, your priorities are correct. Hydration and warm socks help (I think), but diet advice for gout has me completely confused. I know of some beers (domestic) that seem to guarantee an attack, and forgetting to eat something may as well. Keep getting well, second level priorities can wait.

Thomas Collins

Falcons fans resuming breathing?

Stephanie

ha! was that Julio Jones?

Carroll shot himself in the foot at the end of both halves. Love it!

Thomas Collins

Best divisional weekend I can recall, Porchlight.

Thomas Collins

CH, has this weekend brought you back?

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I couldn't watch after Seattle scored twice in the fourth quarter. Oh me of little faith. I did record it, however, so I can savor the victory.

Agent J

As I see it, this could not happen to a better team then Seattle, I dislike Pete Carrol so much, the guy is such a crook that he can not coach in the collage level..As for Atlanta, one player, Toni Gonzales, labored for years as a Chiefs, just a great player. I do wish him good luck on the next level of the ladder, he desires it.

Jane on Ipad

I never watch football but having spent most of yesterday I airport bars I'm amazed at how incredible these games have been. On to the Pats.

JIB has the team expected to win, won so far.

daddy

The difference between winners and losers.

Atlanta: Today, with 30 seconds left and 2 Timeouts remaining, Atlanta took the ball from deep in their territory and moved it way on up the field for a game winning Fieldgoal.

Denver: Yesterday, with 30 seconds left and 2 Timeouts remaining, and the ball deep in their territory, Denver wimped out and decided to take a knee and run out the clock, in the hope that things would turn out good in OverTime.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Yes, my prediction that either Seattle or Atlanta would win it all survives. :)

Stephanie

if you caught Drudge before the FG, he had Seattle logo and "fierce" now it's like trumanesque "finally" . sweet!

Porchlight

I wanted Seattle to go all the way. Oh well. So far I'm 1 for 4 (picked the Niners to win).

Cap'n, you're missing some great games.

NKonIPAD

I incorrectly posted on prior thread. Congrats charlie and good luck with fitness training. If you re lucky like me you'll enjoy training.

Porchlight

I wish Seattle would have run out the clock a little more, daddy.

daddy

Hi Airport Jane,

If the Pat's lose I can't wait to hear what 4 letter words Giselle uses to blame it on this time. It ain't really Football until the fat lady sings the Supermodel starts trash talking.

"I can't believe they dropped the ball so many times," she is heard saying as she waits by an elevator. "My husband cannot f@#$ing throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time."

Thomas Collins

Well, daddy, now Gisele can complain about the Pats' kickoff team.

Thomas Collins

Well, at least Houston converted the FG. 3-0 Houston.

daddy

From the Beeb: Guys With Guns in Pick-up Trucks?

Mali:

An unnamed Elysee Palace official quoted by AFP said on Sunday that French armed forces had been surprised by the fighting quality of the Islamist militants they were up against.

"What has really struck us is how up-to-date their equipment is, and the way they've been trained to use it," the official said.

"At the start, we thought they would be just a load of guys with guns driving about in their pick-ups, but the reality is that they are well-trained, well-equipped, and well-armed.

"From Libya they have got hold of a lot of up-to-date, sophisticated equipment which is much more robust and effective than we could have imagined."

Jack is Back

Jane,

Well if you look at the wild card games Houston was home to Cincy and won. The Ravens were home to Colts and won. Packers at home beat the Vikings. While the Redskins lost to Seattle at home. Soe there you are 3 for 4 favorites win.

Divisional so far only the Broncos have lost at home and Atlanta and San Francisco both won their home games. Have to see with Texans and Pats. Going the way its supposed to go - most home teams win with the occasional upset on the road.

I still say its 49er's V. Pats in N'olens.

Captain Hate

Cap'n, you're missing some great games.

The only thing that could entice me to watch would be a halftime show of Goodell being hung by the neck. Or Pete Carroll.

glasater

Seattle let down their guard after that one point ahead. Sheesh!

One time we were in Mexico watching a Seahawk wild card game and it was fun to hear the play by play in Spanish.

Jack is Back

CH,

You missed something better than a hanging. Pete Carroll thought he had it in the barrell and tried to freeze Matt Bryant's FG with a timeout. When Bryant still kicked it wide, Carroll tried to deny he ever called the timeout but the reply shows him telling the linesman to freeze Bryant before the snap. Now that is a cheat and he showed his true colors. His face was an image of defeat after Bryant made the FG. Believe me worth the watching.

Dave (in MA)

Anybody that the late Yankee apologist Butch From The Cape hated can't be all bad..

Captain Hate

I saw on a game thread where that happened. I must admit I would've enjoyed that a very great deal.

Colin Powell knows what is wrong with the GOP

http://youtu.be/hAh_v8gvfnw

sbw

Not likely to click on a Colin Powell link.

Thomas Collins

Gostkowski makes it 10-3 Pats. Houston's defense is hanging in there, but it's offense so far has consisted of a long kickoff return and a field goal. Time for Schaub to start channeling George Blanda!

daddy

Anybody know who's supposed to "Wardrobe Malfunction" at this years SuperBowl Halftime?

Captain Hate

For any of you who can't stomach watching Powell, which includes me, here's a text of what TK linked: http://minx.cc/?post=336534

Janet

Congrats, ChaCo. I got nothin' to contribute to a healthy eating/exercise thread.

There's a special trick I do with fat-free food: Throw it away.

Jack is Back

daddy,

Beyonce.

Probably worth watching to see how many man-made parts she has.

TK asks "Colin Powell knows what is wrong with the GOP"

Yes. Too many people like him are part of it.

daddy

TK,

I think that should be The Racist Colin Powell knows what is wrong with the GOP.

Thomas Collins

17-3 Pats. Pats are concentrating on bottling up the run, and challenging Schaub to beat them through the air. So far, Schaub and the Houston receivers have been not up to the task.

Jack is Back

Haven't heard much about this but Hollywood always gets off scot free in these gun violence convesations. But how do they reconcile making the most violent movie of the year and calling hit Hansel and Gretel?

Hansel and Gretel, an icon of mature adult fiction.

My God these people have no mores at all.

Thomas Collins

Foster breaks twyo nice runs after the kickoff return and penalty.

Threadkiller

To be clear, the youtube I linked destroys him.

Of note though is his unsolicited concern for birthers on a national Sunday news show. It is amazing that such a fringe group could cause such dismay. Especially since birthers are loons and everybody already knows it.

Captain Hate

But how do they reconcile making the most violent movie of the year and calling hit Hansel and Gretel?

I saw a trailer for that on tv and went WTF. I know that the commies in academia love to poke holes in the Western Canon by bringing all this "learned insight", all of it negative, to bear on it; but I'm wondering if they'll ever go too far.

Threadkiller

Could this be part of the rise of the after-birthers?

"A few weeks back we reported to you at PPS that some surprises were in the work on the Obama citizenship scandal. We reported that we expected some breaking news on the matter within weeks. The particular event that we expected did not happen, but only through a very strange and unfortunate set of circumstances. However, do not be dismayed, as it turns out the plan b for the matter may turn out to be a more powerful revelation event than the first planned one. Since it still involves some of the same major players and perhaps even more major players this time. - ( Birther Report: previous PPS report here )

We still cannot reveal the details of the plan however I can report with honesty and accuracy these two facts:

1. A potentially monumental Plan B exposure of the Obama fraud is in the works by very reliable and competent people. The plan involves people who will easily garner national attention to the matter. [...]

2. PPS has been in direct contact with the Sheriff Arpaio investigation. We have just again been assured by Lt. Mike Zullo lead investigator that the investigation and potential angles of prosecution are still going full steam ahead. Just because it's not in the news right now does not mean they are not feverishly working on the matter. There could be some big announcements in the case soon and forthcoming.

Remember, Richard Nixon was in his second term when he was impeached and removed from office. This is not over with yet. [...]

17-10 Pats. Nice drive by Houston.

narciso

And the stars of that little ditty, are known antiviolence crusader, Jeremy Renner, (Bourne
doppleganger, Hawkman archer, Town 'Southie
bankrobber) and Gemma Arterton, the hot readhead from Quantum of Solace,

Thomas Collins

17-13 Pats at the half.

Intrigued, CH?

daddy

Great fieldgoal Houston!

For Halftime divertissement you might enjoy some of the comments in this local story that broke yesterday:

Anchorage Democratic lawmaker Lindsey Holmes unexpectedly switches parties giving the Republican's a Supermajority in the State House

Off with the dogs...

narciso

Good game, Colin's routine is getting tedious, even Bandar isn't returning his calls anymore,
he didn't directly name Sarah in his little rant, as he did the last time,

narciso

Ah, Hollis 'Gunny' French, is all upset over Lindsey's defection,

sbw

CH, I no longer need to know what Colin Powell thinks. I mean, does anyone care to read what Jimmy Carter says.

Save the minutes. Life is too short.

Clarice

Powell is perfidious. We know that from his role in the Libby case.
Worse, the Bushes made him a very rich man and promoted him and his son as high as possible.

Elliott

I was greatly amused that Jim Nantz, certainly Knowing Who he Is, nonetheless did not note his presence in the New England owner's box.

peter

TK, Nixon was never impeached. He resigned.

Captain Hate

I mean, does anyone care to read what Jimmy Carter says.

I assume his books of crummy poetry attain "remainder" status immediately.

Captain Hate

Somebody (maybe here) told me Nantz is conservative. That may well be but he's not a very good play by play announcer imo.

Charlie (Colorado)

Congrats, ChaCo. I got nothin' to contribute to a healthy eating/exercise thread.

Heh, you haven't read what i'm eating on my "diet". This morning it was 3 hard-boiled eggs, slided, with a TSP of mayonnaise, salt and pepper. Just now it was Ma Bo To Fu from last night, and two more eggs with mayonnaise. For my next meal I'm planning on two slices of prime rib and a big salad with blue cheese.

Extraneus

I haven't cared about the other games much, but I'd sure love to hear a profanity-laced tirade from Giselle before bed tonight.

Dave (in MA)

Ext., not looking likely.

Thomas Collins

Brady showing how to run the hurry-up offense. Pats 31, Texans 13.

Thomas Collins

OK, Dave(in MA), who is the all time Boston area sports caller? Has to be Al from Everett. With Mustard and Johnson as the best sports call-in show hosts.
