a comment on the age poll

The reason for the cutoffs I chose was because those were all ages that I felt were legitimate milestones. At 16, most people can learn how to drive plus puberty's had much of its way with you by then. At 25, you're really no longer a kid, but still a young'un, plus that's when your car insurance rates go down and you can rent a car. *wry grin* At 35 -- well, for me, at least, 35 was when the warranty ran out on my body. I've found, in general, that 35 is a bigger deal than 30 was and that I feel 40 will be, in terms of feeling my age. Fifty was the only 0 number I went with, and it just seemed as good a dividing line as any. As for 65, that's the standard retirement age...

beach training

Spent this morning at Jones Beach for the annual beach training, with all four NYC Kenshikai dojos participating. We had a great workout in the sand and the water, and then we hung out at the beach for a while.

And this time I didn't get sunburned! Yay me!
