The Fitbit itself is incredibly easy to use. There’s a little button on it that, when you push it, shows how many steps you’ve taken, calories you’ve burned, flights of stairs you’ve climbed (or the equivalent thereof), and distance you’ve traveled that day. And the battery lasts pretty long too I never had to charge it once for the week that I used it..

So, in the woods behind the house there was this little River that my brother and I would play in and we had a pretty good path there. We even dug steps into the side of the hill. So, we mainly stayed there, but sometimes would go down river by where it opened up into the field next door..

The survivors wondered, then, why the minute of silence for the deceased Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics was appropriate in comparison. Perhaps it was because he was killed in a wreck on his luge at a dangerous corner of the track on a practice run immediately before the Olympic Games were to open. However, are not the members of the entire murdered Israeli Team deserving of 60 seconds of remembrance at every Summer Games to ensure that, like the Holocaust, we will never forget and never allow such horror to repeat?.

Fourth of July and really would like to take an actual vacation for themselves one of these days. The ability of the airplane to safely and swiftly cover large distances has allowed millions to fly all the way in from San Diego for Mother’s Day, which isn’t even a major holiday, or attend their sister’s baby shower when everyone knows there’s no fucking way she’d do the same for them. No fucking way..

26 July, Saint Etienne du Rouvray: A priest was killed in an attack by two armed men on a church in a suburb of Rouen in northern France. The attackers entered the church in Saint Etienne du Rouvray during Mass, taking the priest, Fr Jacques Hamel, 84, and four other people hostage, before being shot dead by police. President Hollande said the men claimed to be from IS..

This was easiest in winter when I could hide them in my clothes. It was dangerous, but I knew whom I could trust. It was an exciting adventure.. I guess there are now indie bands on major labels, diluting the reason there were indie bands. Indie is now a genre, where previously it was a stance. Maybe we’ll have “undie” bands in the mainstream, and the history of underground culture will fade like the history of the word indie continues to fade.

At first it was a ‘mob game’ played on Shrove Tuesday, Whitsuntide and Christmas with mass participation, no rules, no goals and the main objective was territorial, to move the ‘ball’ initially a hog’s head, later a pig’s or sheep’s bladder from one part of town to the other. It became a renegade activity, banned by the Lord Mayor of London and in more than 30 decrees from 1314 to 1667 but it thrived despite probably due to its propensity to encourage rioting and mischief. But as the industrial revolution began to change the culture of the country, and adults and children were forced to work a six day week, Feast Day games declined and the public schools, where various hybrids had mutated and flourished over the past four centuries, became the hothouses for the codification of the game and its ultimate divergence into two distinct branches, rugby and football..
