Eason's Birthday Party

Eason had his birthday party at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. It was a great party. Eason really wanted a "science" party. All the staff there were very accomodating. The room they gave us was spacious, which was good, because he had a lot of friends there.

Then we all went to the planetarium where they put on a show about the solar system. This show is supposed to be for older kids, but Eason is so interested in the solar system that we really pushed for it. It turned our to be very ambitious for his age group, but plenty of the kids were very interested.

After the show, everyone spent a few hours in their great playground.

Lisa's Unveiling

Aviva and I went to my aunt Lisa's tombstone unveiling. My uncle Marc was there with Adam and Jesse and my aunt Debbie was there with Zoe.

I have a lot of fond memories of Lisa. I remember when I met her. I was very young and she was very shy. Over the years she really opened up to me and I think we were very close at times.

I just received my first check for MMA Ratings from one of the advertising networks I'm working with. A whopping $2.49.

I guess it's a start.

Grips And Friction

Today at the Rye YMCA I was doing back, biceps and rear delts. One of the members asked me about my grips. I told him all about them. They are Versa Gripps. The way they are designed they are great for both push and pull exercises. They wrap around your wrist with velcro and the wrap only extends as far as the beginning of your fingers, where your calluses would be. At the end of the wrap is a small ridge. For pushing the ridge helps to balance the bar in your palm. For pulling the ridge helps secure the bar in your hand. The friction helps you hold weight that your naked grip might not be able to maintain. This is especially helpful for exercises like dead lifts, barbell rows and shrugs. I highly recommend them.
