Consecutive summers, ages 12 and 13, and the purple welts lasted for more than a month before beginning to fade. Both times they occurred as I was leaving the bay. First time, I dropped my left elbow on...

Re: HBPP 4x25 results, please.

Kriegs,

Thanks. I have already gone that path but I could only get approximations. The Crawling Road site had all the %s through 2012. Is there a place that lists exact numbers. Does anyone have it on a spreadsheet, etc?

Thanks.

Hey, Mathjak, what's up with Upper West Side real estate?

Mathjak, We were discussing at dinner all of the shiny, new buildings in the area where "You've Got Mail" was filmed in 19998. Between Broadway and Amsterdam Av on W 77, for instance, there are lovely, tall condos. All over this area serviced by the 1 train, there are so many buildings less than 25 ...

Re: Carnivore Diet Experiment

Mark, Thanks for the comment. Thirty-eight years hence I'm not at the track anymore but that was a notable experience. The tendonitis finally calmed down, so I get to do light weights again. BTW, from what Sophie mentioned about the virus, you and I may be on airplanes in 2021. If so, life will cert...
