All posts for the month August, 2018

I’ve gained about 20-30 lbs in the last several years. I can no longer touch my toes as well as I used to and even tying my shoes is more difficult. @238lbs I need to make some changes.

I’ve been drinking to much beer, at least 4+ three days a week.  Then I eat a bunch of snacks during working hours.  Also, I haven’t done much in the way of exercise, I really need to do more of that.

I realized this only 4 days before I am scheduled to go to my yearly Physical @ the Doctor.

We always have some sort of posters around work that have to do with some sort of campaign that the HR group has going. This week this poster popped up.

I think the gal in the poster played a stewardess in the Firth Element.

Perseids 2018

According to NASA meteor expert Bill Cooke, the Perseids are perhaps the most popular meteor shower of the year; and in 2018, they’ll be the best shower of the year. During the Perseids’ peak this week, spectators should see about 60-70 meteors per hour, but in outburst years (such as in 2016) the rate can be between 150-200 meteors an hour. The meteor shower’s peak will be visible both the nights of Aug. 11-12 and Aug. 12-13, Cooke said, but he’s inclined this year to lean toward the night of Aug. 12-13 for the better show. (Both, however, should be spectacular.)

The Perseids is close to the north pole.
