** Benefits of a good vocabulary: I recently called an old Engineering buddy of mine and asked what he was working on these days. He replied that he was working on “Aqua-thermal treatment of ceramics, aluminum and steel under a constrained environment.” I was impressed until, upon further inquiry, I learned that he was washing dishes with hot water under his wife’s supervision.

** Exercise for people over 60: Begin by standing on a comfortable surface where you have plenty of room on each side. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from you sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a little longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags, then 50-lb. Eventually try to reach 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute (I am at this level). After you feel confident at this level, put a potato in each bag.
