Male sexual harassment: counter intuitive for meblueollie

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 01:27:29 +0000

I asked a question on Facebook about a hypothetical case: if someone had, say, a syndicated show and told a potential guest “if you reject my advances, you won’t be a guest on my show”, is this against the law? I asked because while I think that this is vulgar and immoral, I don’t know […](image)

resting and more baseballblueollie

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 23:13:12 +0000

I wondered if I was getting rundown so I went to the Forest Park Nature Center (left from the Heights tower) and walked 2:12 (about 7 miles). Normally I don’t doubt the distance but this time Wakerobin was closed. So I took Deer run back to Possum Path to the Valley, then to Bee Tree […](image)

Fun with the mundane….blueollie

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 01:52:08 +0000

Yes, I ran a 5K this morning. And yes, I cut the grass for the first time in 2017. That wasn’t fun, though I wanted to get a photo of the tulips for Barbara, who is in Cuba. But I also saw something more gruesome: there were the remains of a bunny that became a […](image)

Running: I’ve gone very softblueollie

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 01:40:09 +0000

Yesterday afternoon, I felt that 5K race would help me out. I did this race before (albeit on a slightly different course) High 40’s, and we started against a headwind. I warmed up about 15 minutes and walked about a mile afterward; call it 5 total miles. I frequently joke that I’d love to have […](image)

Hitting the bat with the ball… (personal and trivial)blueollie

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 11:44:51 +0000

My dad introduced me to baseball when I was quite young. I had a toddler bat and he would pitch to me. At first, he would lob the ball at my bat so I could hit it. I also remember that I was promised a quarter if I hit the ball over the house (a […](image)

Finding the happy mediumblueollie

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 17:22:37 +0000

Today: my 4.15 mile walk in 56:45, which had a 13:58 first mile (plus) then a 13:16 finish; 29:30 middle part. pace: 13:42 or thereabouts. I skipped leg weights as I might do a spandex chase tomorrow..in fact, I am planning on it. It is too soon to say how my training is progressing. I […](image)

Dropping the ball for baseball…blueollie

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 02:19:49 +0000

I’ve disconnected a bit due to..well, baseball games. Tuesday night I saw the Chiefs lose to the Cedar Rapids Kernels 5-0. The highlights were a couple of great outfield catches; one was just off of the ground and the other was over the shoulder. Then last night I watched Bradley rally from 4-1 down in […](image)

Democrats: always a tough sell…blueollie

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 13:12:56 +0000

I’ve spent some time on twitter discussing the 2016 election, and the fine line between critiquing the Clinton campaign (which, IMHO, was terrible) and Hillary Clinton herself (yes, I STILL think that she would be a good president) and going over the various factors that worked against her (sexism of some, Russian collusion, Comey’s ill […](image)

Not giving up on a workout too earlyblueollie

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 16:31:09 +0000

I decided to try to run outside. And my first .25 miles were TERRIBLE; it was almost as if I could barely breathe and my legs felt like lead. I even walked a few steps. But I stayed with my shuffle and made it to the first downhill section (Bradley Park) and by then, I […](image)

Introspection: good medicine, though not everyone agrees…blueollie

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 14:41:17 +0000

A book called Shattered has caused a mini-sensation in some Democratic circles: Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their […](image)
