#2175 – A Gym, Tennis, and Bike Story

ENGLISH Returning from my Big Three Oh Trip to New York and Washington D.C. last week, I decided to take my time in getting my regular exercising routine back to normal because of the jetlag and, mainly, the flu. This time, though, I did not have that much of “guilt fuel” which, I think, was…

#2158 – Guilt Fuel

In that post I linked to a post of mine from 2011,…

#1972 – The Egg Contamination Scandal

ENGLISH You might have heard of the egg contamination scandal in Europe from earlier this month.
