I had to go suit shopping recently and this is one of the ones I bought on sale at Macy's One Day Sale last week. Click through to see the other photos of same suit.
[This vanished in LJ, so I'm re-saving it to see if it'll re-post.]
Italian researchers have come up with a novel way for cardiac rehabilitation patients to exercise their damaged hearts without having to squeeze into spandex or gyrate in a gym: waltzing.
The dance proved to be just as effective as bicycle and treadmill training for improving exercise capacity in a study of 110 heart failure patients. Dancers also reported slightly more improvement in sleep, mood, and the ability to do hobbies, do housework and have sex than the others.
In other news, I finally appear to be rid of the nasty crud I have had recently that included a sinus infection and nasty sinus headaches. Damn, but that stuck around for a long time! And it also seems to have gotten more than just local friends. Stupid crud.
Huh. So now you can crosspost from Vox to LJ. You have to go into your Account and then Outside Services, but neat. I don't post over here very often, so don't expect to see a slew of posts showing up. It is kind of nice to have everything show up in one place though.
I was visiting with Dave acould weeks ago and he showed me this cool program that let him use one keyboard/mouse for all of his machines. He'd gotten a new laptop, edited the config file on his Linux box and tah dah! he was able to move the mouse from the Linux box to his Windows laptop.
I decided this seemed like a very cool thing and downloaded it tonight. It's called Synergy and is very cool. So now I can copy a URL from my PC and paste it into the browser on my laptop.
Windows, Mac, Linux - What's your preference and why? Submitted by ramblingsbymark.
For development work, Linux. For desktop, Windows. Now, the explanation... I haven't used Linux as a desktop in a long time and when I had, it was not an easy, smooth operation. Instead, I use Windows. It has a ton of applications that I use that make life easier and that makes me happy. But for coding, please give me an account on a Unix server somewhere and let me go.
My roommate has a pretty, new Mac laptop. And it's neat, but gods is it frustrating sometimes! Her first choice of OS would be Linux, but she needed something with voice recognition software and can not cope with Windows, so now she has a Mac. It's good that it's hers though. ;)
I visited my brother, sis-in-law and niece yesterday. Mostly to go swap cars with my brother since mine is an automatic and his has a manual transmission (and he had knee surgery on his left knee so shifting is not on the list of approved activities yet). I had realized that I was out of lip balm, but my niece is a lip balm maniac, so I asked her if she would share one (a new one) with me. She said she would, so my sis-in-law got out the stash of Chapsticks.
I had the choice of Princesses or Tigger. I picked Bouncin' Berry Lip Balm (Tigger).
Yay for sweet nieces who share. :)
