"Barefoot, tank tops and shorts.  I wear a shirt so I don't gross out my 10 yr old daughter.  If o had a son I'd go shirtless.   An elegant yet modern way to dress would be a preppy polo shirt, nice shorts or kahkis and some…"

"So another question is if dress affects your state of mind and mood.  If it does use it.  If it does not don't worry about it."

"Exactly. Do you dress for yourself, or do you dress for others? Especially in you own house, you can do what you like. Sometimes that's sweats with at T-shirt, sometimes that's something completely extravagant. "

Larry Parker replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"I grew up in the 50's and don't remember anyone dressing at home in a suit, etc. Maybe they did in NYC but not in Virginia. I will say it was probably a little less casual than today. But anything goes for me; I'm at home, that's…"

"If you're just hanging out around the house, what's wrong with sweats and a T shirt? Some of the Mad Men style is cool, but come on. You're hanging out at home. No need to get fancy. Plus, those guys are probably always…"

"Tell that to the people who should be fixing my heating! Funny thing is that wealthy families never had a real worry about heating. It was only about the beginning of the twentieth century (higher taxes and depleting fortunes) most people living in…"

"And then in the 1950's we got central air conditioning! That really caused the drop of in the use of indoor jackets.  When the house is not freezing you don't need the extra layer."

Mike replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Interesting. I know guys used to wear robes around the house (from the 1800s through to the 1950s), however now a days they've kinda gone out of fashion. I've even heard people describe house robes as being "gay", which is kinda…"

Exercise for bad disk

Hi, there,I have what I believe is a stressed disk in my lower back. It is aggravated by lifting up straight in front. Carrying boxes, picking up things from the floor, and similar motions are anywhere from challenging to impossible when it is acting up. Anybody have suggestions for a workout regimen to strengthen my core without stressing my spine? Burpees, for example, seem to make things worse. I think a stronger core would take some of the load from my spine and keep the pain to a…See More
