Trot To Liberty Science Center

After Andrea and Eason ran in the 1 mile turkey trot, we all ran off to meet our friends at the Liberty Science Center. The kids climbed around in the Infinity Climber and played at the Skyscraper exhibit, and we saw the the Rubic's Cube exhibit, the Tesla Lightning Show. The whole day was a lot of fun.

Thanksgiving 2014

For Thanksgiving we had our family over again, except that this was the first Thanksgiving without my mom. Eason and Andrea were a big help with the cooking and setting up. Aviva made Bloody Marys. We watched slide shows of previous Thanksgivings. Eason helped Jerry carve the turkey a bit. All the food was delicious.

Halloween 2014

For Halloween this year I spent the entire day in costume. "If you don't know who I am, then... maybe your best course would be to tread lightly."

Camping At Beaver Pond 2014

We went camping with our friends at Beaver Pond again. For a while it looked like it might be too rainy, but as soon as we got in the vicinity it was all sunny. The kids pitched the tents and helped get the camp fire going. Then we stayed up by the fire and told stories.

Rosh Hashanah

We had Rosh Hashanah dinner with our family at Le Proven├žal Bistro. It wasn't as much fun as getting together at our family's house, like we used to, but it's still nice to get together with family.

I'm Glad I Backed Up, So I Can Move On...Eventually

As my summer vacation was wrapping up, I noticed that some programs in my remote session to my computer at home were hanging. I wasn't using my computer that much so I decided to ignore it. Then I received a message on my desktop from my Carbonite backup program telling me it had frozen my backup since it detected a problem with one of my disks. There wasn't much I could do until I got home.

Packing Up At The Bungalow

We packed up the bungalow. The kids helped, including bringing the boats up, and then I took them for a ride on the tractor.

Bad Form: Why Your Core Workout Isn't Working Out

In Why ab workouts are a waste of time personal trainer Steve Steinberg gets it right about how the only way to achieve abdominal definition is to reduce the fat around your belly. And because spot reduction is a myth, the way to do this is primarily improving your diet and increasing muscle mass (which burns calories throughout the day), and only secondarily with cardiovascular exercise. So if what you're looking for is definition, you never have to work your abs again.

Bungalow Vacation

A typical day at the bungalow is sleeping late, going for a run around the lake with the kids, going out on one of the boats (we have a row boat, a pedal boat, a canoe, and multiple kayaks), going for a swim in the lake if it is warm enough, playing games (either throwing a ball around, or on the tennis court, or board or card games on the porch), reading stories, and hanging out late on the porch or under the stars. All this is interspersed with lots of good meals. I took two weeks off at the end of August so I had a lot of time at the bungalow.
