David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
"In just over a month I will turn 60. This is hard for me to believe, as it doesn't seem that long ago my wife and I visited my father in Arizona to celebrate his 60th. (It was 1995). Two months minus two days after the birthday, I will have my…"

David Tindell replied to Wayne's discussion Less, or no sex as we get older. in the group Men Over 50
"Indeed it does. It's a rough time for both of you. Men cannot begin to understand the physical and emotional changes that a woman goes through, so don't even pretend to try. You just have to ride it out and be understanding. When she comes…"

David Tindell replied to Wayne's discussion Less, or no sex as we get older. in the group Men Over 50
"You say she has "no desire at all." There has to be a reason for that. Is there a medical problem, for one of you or both? A woman just does not turn off her sex drive for no reason at all. One of the first things a man in this situation…"

David Tindell replied to David R.'s discussion Profanity and Vulgarity
"As for me, I think someone who regularly uses profanities/vulgarities in conversation is either a) trying too hard to show how hip they are, or b) displaying their lack of vocabulary. Maybe both."

David Tindell replied to John Muir's discussion When Is the time to talk about gun control? in the group The Great Debate
"Why is it that when a drunk driver kills someone, we blame the driver not the car, and when a terrorist bombs a building, we blame the terrorist not the bomb, but when a nut grabs a gun and shoots people, people start jumping up and down about gun…"

David Tindell replied to David R.'s discussion Women in the military in the group The Great Debate
" I have no problem with women being in the military and holding down whatever job they can qualify for, as long as standards are not lowered one bit. If I'm in the infantry and have to call in air support or artillery, I don't give a…"

David Tindell replied to Araignée's discussion Military Fiction in the group Armchair Generals
" The works of WEB Griffin are very popular, although sometimes they can get too soap opera-ish for me. Plus, Griffin's writing style takes some getting used to. The best military series I've read is David Poyer's Dan Lenson…"

David Tindell replied to terry sperling's discussion A day in the life of you. in the group Men Over 50
" The wife's on a Danube cruise in Europe (she runs a travel agency, and occasionally takes me along), so my turkey day was a TRX class at my local gym at 8:30am, home for the rest of the day till going back to town to see a 4pm showing of…"

David Tindell commented on Lightbringer's group Martial Artists
"Regular Joe and Jason make excellent suggestions. I've trained extensively in Systema and can vouch for its effectiveness in personal combat, especially as relates to law enforcement, where your objective is primarily to subdue the assailant.…"

David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
" I should also add that I continue with martial arts training. A couple months ago I was awarded a black belt in ryukudo kobujutsu, the study of Okinawan weaponry. My wife joined me in this training early in 2010 with no previous experience,…"

David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
" Four days after hitting 58, I participated in my first TRX class in several months. Taught by a fit and very attractive young blonde gal (with my wife in attendance I keep eyes front), I made it through and will come back for more."

David Tindell replied to Ed Deerly's discussion Women our age.... in the group Men Over 50
" I think it's both. Look at a recent pic of 60-year-old Christie Brinkley and that proves the latter. My wife doesn't have access to all the things Brinkley does to stay fit and look young, but she does a great job with what she has…"

David Tindell commented on thehuhman's group Men Over 50
" Today I hit the big 58. I can remember my grandfather at 58, when I was a junior in high school. Somehow this does not compute."

David Tindell replied to Carl Monster's discussion Semper Virilus for those 50 and over in the group Men Over 50
"  Trust me, my young manhood was far from ideal. It was only in my mid-30s that I emerged from a tough divorce and, thanks in large part to a great woman who became my wife, began turning things around. Had I stayed single it would've been…"

Thanks for your comment. I can't tell you how many students never make it past three or four classes because it's boring learning kihon, or they find out they're not going to become kung fu theater-like acrobats.
