@Joe Nation,
Woot! Hope you remain effect free! Bad effect, I mean. Good effects are fine.

@dlowan,
Did just .5 miles in the freezing wind yesterday. Mencius is still tender and I was mostly moving downhill.
Got the groceries and trotted/walked/trudged back up to the building.

(There are no flat places in my neighborhood. All routes but one are long uphills or the stairs. By the stairs I mean the famous Ft. Washington Step -- 130+ stairs that the neighborhood uses as a gym.
The downhill route takes you a mile downhill....thus any route back from that way is a mile uphill. Luckily, I like hills.)

I'm looking back through my blog to see what the early circles were. There are several that take me around the Cloisters Museum and views of the river. We'll see what the afternoon holds for winds and such.

Going to be 66°F but could be blowy.

If you are keeping track, one month ago I couldn't stand for more than five minutes without needing a place to sit down.

@dlowan,
.5 miles is a heck of an achievement.

Remember that rib ?

Apt, don't want to put this on facebook... Friday Night, dinner, a couple of wines, socialising thereafter with staff of D's Restuarant and then time to leave.

Stairs, knees?

And so we exit to the carpark, a flight of some 12 stairs to get down first, extremely steep mind you.... Having had "that" injury before, I wear flat shoes more so, but no, not when you go out a couple of inches of heel is nice right? So first step on the, well step..... And bam, no soul on the shoe..Soul? Now I know... lost. And bang, couldn't grab the bannister, D was behind me, off I went, turned myself and rolled, plonk, plonk, plonk x 12 all the way down......

Now some may say my knees look like carpet burn.. My arm, quite red and bruised but alas, thankfully no head injuries, no neck injuries no nothing, just bruises.... But, that rib? Dang must have jolted it a little, oh well more healing.

Had to share, hoped you laughed a little.... I may be back a little on the drawing board Wink Stairs and knees did it dlowan Wink

@FOUND SOUL,
~Ouch X 12 !

Going down stairs is one of the most danger-filled things one can do. It follows right behind getting on the top of a step stool.

@FOUND SOUL,
I'm a lifetime faller, have fallen in many fine places, due to low peripheral vision. I'm pretty well adapted with that, due to the lifetime business, but still go plunk once in a while, usually when distracted with other than looking about carefully. Ask Dlowan and Roger, they were there one of the times. Roger and Eva and Diane and Thomas, another time. So far the bones have held up.

@ossobuco,
Perhaps a good GPS could help? Better still a gyro?

Seriously, I hope you keep injury free.

Gyroscope

hahaha! Now, you've done it. I have a hankering for Greek food. Today we're having another family re-union dinner so I'll see if I can get a Greek salad or maybe Spanakopita.

@ossobuco,
I haven't been in a toy aisle in a while, do they still sell gyroscopes? Or every kid so familiar with steady-cam technology that they don't need to see them at work?

Did exactly 1.0 miles today.

Foundy, ask him. I wouldn't want to just have his stuff snagged online - but of course I'm/we're interested. Does he have a webthoughtsite? I get not going there, but, still..

@ossobuco,
Funny about that..

I wanted to / want to start one up called "Mad Chef" Wink Where people could ask the questions they want to know of anything and he will answer what he can, plus post pictures of what he's cooked and how to do it, that sort of thing... from a Chef's perspective, never know what we can learn. I sure have.

You are right though, he is co-owner with two others and so.... prob can't exactly kinda give out their full recipes... but can still give out the basics plus his own....

I was going to blog it on my business site. Just to be different...

Do you like Prawns, wrapped in shredded filo? I can PM that one Wink To anyone, my Mother changed it and uses bananas so uses it as a dessert lols.

@FOUND SOUL,
I was co-owner and my b. partner was dismissive on website making. I was just a muddler, knowing we couldn't do it ourselves. I'm not so sure she was wrong, all things considered, and in any case, I'm not your prototype as a website starter.
We never did, as partners, and she still hasn't now. Meantime, she is highly knowledgeable re design and art.

Still, there are a whole lot of knownothing petunias out there.

Hey I muddled and found my way with my business site Smile

When I do I shall let you know..........................................

Well, natch, make sure you have all the ok's. There are a zillion threads on websites making here, but some are better than others (I take it).
