I'm pretty sure, after watching the competitions, that they are made up of blood, sweat and tears. And Hope. Lots of hope.

I was in a big box outdoor store several years ago where Kim Rhode was doing some promotional stuff for her ammo sponsor. She had all of her Olympic medals w/her and was having all these young kids wear them and get their pics taken w/their parents or alone. Wot pure fun and joy that was! She is honestly just that kind of kind person. Highly competitive and wholly unpretentious in the company of children.. or anyone else, in my experience being around her on several dif. occasions.

If she can podium in the next Olympics, she will be standing alone for number of consecutive Olympics an athlete has medaled in.

That we missed National Sneak Some Zucchini Into Your Neighbor’s Porch Day. It was celebrated on August 8.

Did you know that zucchini was a fruit? Well, if you’re a gardener, you know this fact already. You also know that zucchini grows in abundance and is ready for harvest in August. Zucchini growers also know that one plant of zucchini allows you to share this wonderful treat!

Every year 1 out of 3 older people fall, less than half tell their doctor.
1 out of 5 geezer diggers results in a serious injury, broken bones or head trauma.

1 in 100 citizens here are incarcerated. Do you know where your children are? Are you sure?

A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.

Hoagie Carmichael was from Indiana and that Stardust as he wrote it in 1928 is perhaps the best Big Band tune ever recorded? Well, I think it is anyway.

Or that Ian Fleming said that James Bond was Hoagie Carmichael with a scar on his cheek? He did.

It's also National Ride The Wind Day (whatever THAT is...)

But at least when your ride is over, you can relax with a cake or two.

A man in India that had a penchant for swallowing knives over several months had to have them removed after his guts were perforated. Doctors cut out 40 knives up to 7" long. The man no longer wishes to look at a knife.

He obviously wasn't too sharp.
