I know this isn't lottery related, but this is for the Senior Citizens on the forum.Remember, a sound body makes a sound mind, and we all need that to pick winners. 

 

I came across this exercise suggested for seniors, to build muscle strength
in the arms and shoulders. It seems so easy, so I thought I'd pass
it on.
The article suggested doing it three days a week.Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room
at each side. With a 5-lb. potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight
out from your sides, and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a
full minute, and then relax. Each day, you'll find that you can hold this
position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks. Then
A 50-lb. potato sack, and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a
100-lb. potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full
minute.

Once you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

    That is good, I was beginning to worry.

    EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.
    Maybe sometime in the future I might come back as LANTERN again, but maybe not, if I don't come back as LANTERN in the future then I won't come back at all, but as I said there is no more EXCALIBUR.

      STANISLAUS (Stanley) ZBYSZKO
      (Birthname: Stanislaus Cyganiewicz)

       

      Brother of the great Polish wrestler Wladek Zbyszko in a photo taken around 1924. Born in Lodlowa, Poland on April 1, 1879. He was the heavyweight wrestling champion of the world 3 times. Dispelling the myth that muscular men are unintelligent, he could speak 5 languages fluently, and several of the Baltic dialects. He was named as one of the four strongest men in the world at one time. His weight in this fine photograph was 230 lbs. This is an amazing image, since Stan was already 50 years old here, yet still sported a 21" upper arm and a 50" chest.

       

      He starred in a "film noir" movie made in 1950 as a character named "Gregorius the Great ". His only film apprearance. He was already 71 at the time.

       

      He died on September 22, 1967 in St. Joseph, Missouri at age 88.

       



       

       

      The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                                    Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                                    Odds never change .....but probability does.

        He was probably as big as "Charles Atlas" (Angelo Siciliano (One of my regular Internet's aliases or names, Angelo Siciliano, I mean)).

          EXCALIBUR

          You're one of the few people I've ever encountered that knows Atlas' real name.

          Remember how he died, or at least so the story goes? 

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              No I don't, but after his wife died, he probably was not the same and died still kind of young for somebody as healthy as he appeared to be.

              Was it a hearth attack?

                I am sorry to know that you and so many others feel pain and are sick.

                I am not so healthy myself, I have enough health problems.

                Luckily for us, these things don't last forever, because our bodies don't either.

                Before too long we will all be gone, in due time of course, as I am sure that health problems or not we are not in any great hurry to depart.

                Or are we?

                Sorry about you Emily sweetheart and all others, join the club, not that it is any club that anybody would like to join in.

                Good luck to all.

                And no, psykomo is definitely not crazy, at least no more than anybody else.

                EXCALIBUR is no more that "Handle" is dead, gone.

                  There was an article in one of those mens' magazines,  not a girlie one but those "action" ones like Saga or Argosy, maybe it was Esquire....

                   A Merchant Marine was visting a hospital in New York City and found out Atlas was there.  Atlas was his choildhood idol and he asked if he couyld visti him. He was extremely ill by this team, and when the guy went to his room to meet him and shake his hand, he asked him toflex one more time, and according to this article, Atlas died right after he flexed for the guy.

                    Atlas died of a heart attack in Long Beach, Long Island, not far from his home in Point Lookout, New York on December 23, 1972.

                    I found that info with Google.

                      Oh well, like I said, "Or so the story goes" (went). Yeah, that was sad. Atlas was a mail order marketing genius, too.
