    I get a kick out of the TV commercials where they have people who work out 8 hours a day, but “you can look like this in only 20 minutes a day”

    But you CAN look like that in only 20 minutes a day, if you’re only 20 and have been doing 20 minutes a day since you were 12!

    @Nabuquduriuzhur – when you get a few years older, you may see it differently. Between the media and the AARP, it would appear that the new 30 is 70.

    The catch is that very few of us can afford to spend our lives in narcissm. For most of us, skydiving at 60 is not even an option, much less ‘fun’.

    Stations would have to go “off the air” for a few hours or so at a time, much like public television did in its early days (the 1960s and thereabouts).
    Maybe that’s not such a bad idea.

    I remember it going off in the eighties and early ninetys at about 1am until about 5 after playing the National Anthem.

    The first time some paid beauty barked at me, I’d have other things to do with my valuable time.

    I once saw a movie called Can Can with Shirley McClain. Believe me, Ellie, you CAN learn alot from that movie.

    They would have to, or just decided on their own to suspend broadcast? A few stations still have the well-known ritual of the playing of the national anthem at 11:59 PM followed by the Indian head test card.

    My gym is here in my multi-room and well hidden; even my workout bench is a former coffee table with a beautifully carved base like other good furniture and upolstered with HD 3" foam and a nice red brocade. The strider is one I can easily roll and store in the laundry next door, but lately I use it so often I do not store. No problem at all to stick to my target weight so I never have an extra 5# to lose. Sure, at 75 I can only do kicks to waist level (no high kicks like a real can-can) and my balance is not perfect either (I used to think that was from drinking ;-) This year I have no alcohol or soft drinks, only herbal teas and other flavors sweetened w stevia. And this year I am eliminating many whole types of food, but I will be more natural after next February assuming I resolve my HBP without meds.

    And they always put the “fine print” disclaimer across the bottom of the screen “Results not typical.” LOL

    On the subject of commercials, how come state lotteries are not held to truth-in-advertising standards? Almost everyone who has seen a lottery commercial recalls it something like this “A game where 1 out of 3 can win!” then showing big winners. In actuality, the 1:3 probability is often for the most common prize, namely a free lottery ticket, whereas the odds of winning the jackpot are astronomical.
