"Dan, I hope by now you have gotten some ideas for working out and started a regimen. But just in case I will share some tips that I got years ago from Men's Health that really helped me.
1. Join a gym. Theres a lot of places that have cheap…"
I celebrate my 70th tomorrow. I read your post with interest and encourage others who read it to connect with their dads who are still alive in the best way possible in their circumstances. I am now as old as my Dad was when he died and…"
It's weird, usually on my birthday I think of my mom. I used to call her every year on my birthday no matter what, and thank her for all the trouble she went thru to give birth to me. The way I almost died, twice, on the day I was born really makes me appreciate every year I live and makes me believe deeper in God and appreciate what God did to get me this far! But somehow this year is different. I'm thinking of my Dad, not really believing that he's dead. Somehow I always thought there would…See More
"Hey Omri, Brett put a post on this site on making your own beard oil. It was a great article that really helped me understand essential oils from Carrier oils.(Thanks Brett McKay-you know you're the man!!) Basically you can you just about…"
"Double standard for sure Brett. I'm a male nurse. Some female patients won't let me be their health care professional even though their doctor is a male. Doesn't make sense to me, but to each their own.
"JR, I applaud your transparency, candor and frankness to your son. This experience will be one that he will remember forever, as it obviously brought the two of you closer together. He most likely will feel that he can talk to you about anything,…"
"Omri, there's a bunch of products out there for bearded men. Beard oil is used to soften the beard during the day and to keep it from drying out, so when kissing your lady, she doesn't complain and make that face. Beard conditioner is a…"
"A lot of bigger towns have hidden gyms off the beaten path. They're usually cheaper to get guys in. Ask around. Check google or similar for your area. I'll bet you'll find ones you didn't even know where there. Stay away from…"

I don't get on here often and I don't remember if I replied to your question. I don't know of any groups.
I've had a few trucks in the last year: #1 I wrecked my 1988 F150 4x4 shortbox. It had a cam, headers, exhaust on a 5.0 with a C6. #2 was a 1988 F250 ext. cab 8' bed. I lifted it and put tires on it but sold it. #3 1982 F250 had a 460 with 500HP. It was set up for racing. That beast would go! I broke enough drive shafts and other parts so sold it. #4 I got a 1974 F250 factory highboy. It had a 390 with headers and cam and C6 with shifter kit. It was riding on 36" super swampers. Sold it because it was a gas hog. #5 I have now. Its a 1990 F150. I have a 6" lift on it and 35"s. It had a inline 6 under the hood which I love! It has loads of torque and gets 16mpg in town/20 mpg on the highway. It also has a standard tranny. Planning on doing some engine work on it soon and well as a little body.
The jeep has been put on the back burner till I get more time, I am currently working 60-70 hours a week over the road. I hope to get time to work on my jeep, and maybe even get some fishing time in soon.
Well the old girl (my Jeep) is torn down to the frame as we speak for a full rebuild, My camera gear is ALL film, they are.... Asahi Pentax KX,Mamiya Sekor 500 DTL, Yashica FX-D Quartz SE, Yashica Electro 35 GSN
Yeah, I loved that truck. The new truck has what I was looking for: more passenger room. The new truck rides a lot smoother, handles the hills better, and tows like a dream, but I sure miss Betty Blue.
Hey, I appreciate the comment. I became a truck owner by accident and a truck lover by fate. Long story short, my 6' 8" brother decided to buy a Sonoma GT (I know it's a small truck, but everybody can cut me a break I'm in college.) He was too tall to comfortably drive it and thus sold it to me at a really good price.

You have a point there.
