Thursday 26 April 2012: Exercise, dancing, and an upgrade…

In the AM, I went to Fitness Edge, where I trained legs, hips, abs, writs, and calves.

I upgraded my desktop to Ubuntu 12.04 – all is well!

We had an appointment with our attorney on making a trust, and then a ballroom lesson (rumba) with Anya at the Avon Ballroom.

In the evening, I studied Russian (Rosetta Stone), and rode my exercycle as I watched the NFL draft thru pick 22.

24 April 2012: Exercise and fracking

I went back to the gym for the first time since Thursday: chest, biceps, neck, obliques, and calves.

I studied Russian with Rosetta Stone for about an hour.
Sharon’s computer came back from repair after only 1 week (Hooray Best Buy), we shopped at Heinen’s for food, and cooked out.

In the evening, I had an AL Dems meeting, where we discussed fracking in Ohio, and then back home, I watched the tribe win and rode my bike for bike 45 min, 11 miles.

21 April 2012: Let the Activities Commence!

Up at 0630 ( at my roommate’s request), had breakfast with Diana at the Metro Diner.  (My roommate is a retired econ and history professor).

and then via the Subway on to the conference.

We took a carry out (out sourced) lunch from the Garden of Eden:

20 April 2012: on to the city.

I got up very early to get to Rick Nagin’s by 0630, and then we (Gavin -an unemployed truck driver from Indiana, Rick, and I) left.  We stopped in Jefferson oh, for breakfast, and to pick up others, including Diana (below).

In our van, we made the trip with 7 people (1 child),

Eastern PA

and – after a long delay at the GW, arrived.


Diana and I stayed (different rooms) at a Hostel  called 230 broadway, on 101 st.  The rooms were sparse:

Diana and I had dinner at a local Italian place.

19 April 2012: Art, a cruise, and a dance

After a w/o at the gym, Sharon and I had lunch at the Market in River, and went over to the River Gallery to pick up our new ceramics.

We then headed over to the Metroparks, for a top down cruise through the Valley, and stopped at Weber’s Ice Cream on the way home.

Our dance lesson was waltz, we cooked out, and I prepped for my  trip to NYC the next day.
