    Taking my first formal Tai Chi class this Saturday

    Sorry to here your class ended. Take your friend up on the offer. It's better to have someone with some experience guide you in your learning than try to learn on your own. Fyn

    Your own form

    In Taijiquan, no I haven't created any of my own forms (I have quite a lot to practice already). But last summer, I created a short form to practice quarter staff. Fyn

    The Book I Cannot Buy...

    Just to see if the "Curse of the Isshinryu Kusanku Kata Secrets Revealed" is real, I tried to purchase the book from Powell's online. Everything seemed okay, the purchase went through, then two days later I got an email from them saying: "We're very sorry, but the item listed below is not...

    Peep Show

    Peeps, wonderful Peeps. I do like that mine rescue diorama. At my work, a lot of people say bad things about Peeps, but bring a bunch in, leave them in the break room, and in no time they are gone, consumed along with the morning coffee (except for the ones that one guy pins up on his cubicle...

    Most peaceful U.S. state,

    Alright! Number 10! And I was born in the state that is number 9. I'm feeling very peaceful! But I did live in Texas, so I guess that could cancel out my peacefulness ... Fyn

    One Englishman's View

    Interesting article and interesting assortment of comments. Growing up and living my whole life in the western United States, I can say that guns have just been a part of life. My family, relatives, and friends all owned guns, mostly rifles and/or shotguns, but ownership, for the most part...

    Swiss ball? Yikes!

    That's something I'll pass on. I'd just get hurt and my wife would never let me forget how stupid I was to try something like that. And I'd end up being ridiculed on Youtube. Yes, better to stay off the swiss ball ... Fyn

    A very telling article. I'm going to pass this on to my wellness committee at work. Personally, I think too many people at my work communicate through email, especially when they could just stand up, walk a few feet and tell the person the same stuff they put in the email. Fyn

    I know Texas is a big state but.

    There's nothing wrong with increasing the speed limit in the wide open spaces. I have driven through west Texas a few times (lived in Midland once, well twice actually but the first time I was a little kid and my parents wouldn't let me drive :) ) and the drives can be long and lonely. Lower...
