Rosh Hashanah

We went to Babcia and Djiadek's for Rosh Hashanah. They put together a great spread and we had a great time. Eason showed them the Tootie Tah song.

I think I watch too much MMA.

Aviva and I were talking about the presidential debates. She asked me who I thought did better. I said I thought Obama won 29-28, but I thought it could be a split decision.

Bronx Zoo

We went to the Bronx Zoo with our friends. The kids did the Flora the Explorer activity, and a whole bunch more. At night Eason helped Aviva bake an apple pie.

MMA And The Appeal Of Violence And Violent Competition?

In the recent episode of MMA Nation, Luke was talking about Violence in MMA, and why it is attractive to so many.

So I want to address the question, why do I like MMA and what is the appeal of violence and violent competition?

Violence is simply a reality of life, regardless of to what extent one might try to avoid it. Whether its the possibility of having to defend yourself and your family on the street, to defending your country, to wanting to punch that annoying person in the mug so they'll just shut up. There is just no way to avoid that reality.

New Equipment At The Y

The Rye YMCA replaced all their old Cybex free weight and universal type equipment with some cool Life Fitness stuff.

I haven't tried everything out yet, but overall I'm very pleased. So far the biggest highlights are:
• dumbbells up to 95 lbs. (from 85)
• more adjustable benches
• fly machine cables rotate 180 degrees
