From the Mouths of Babes

05 Jun 12

Below is a picture of my youngest, he is 4. He has just received his Yellow Belt after taking a test and passing. As you can see, he is quite proud of himself, for the record, his Dad was too.

Now, yes, this is a nice story, but if that were it, I certainly wouldn’t be posting this, what came after we had packed up and were driving home was what cinched my writing this today. As we were riding home my son who had previously been unusually quiet said to me “Dad, this is now my favorite toy” (referring to his trophy, no idea why we are calling it a toy, btw). Going with the flow I asked Declan why it was now his favorite toy. His response nearly caused me to drive off the road. “Because Daddy, this is the first one I have earned, I did this all by myself.” If you have kids then you may already know this, if you don’t, remember what I am about to write.

You never know when your kids are listening. I promise you I have considered my son too young for me to have the “the things we earn in life are the things worth having” conversation, but yet, there it was. Plain as day. Declan, all of 4 years old already knows one of the best lessons that can be taught and learned in life. The joy in life is in the earning, not in the having. Yes, it is fun to have, but those first few moments, when you realize that you have earned that promotion, that raise, that degree, or even, that lift, those are the moments in life to live for.

When he got home his father, completely out of character, told him he could have whatever snack we had in the house. His father said so not because of the trophy in his hand, but the life lesson in his heart.

The Truth…

23 Feb 12

I was interviewed earlier this week about Jack La Lanne.   I was being interviewed because of the blog piece I had written in response to Frank Bruni’s inane article about Mr. La Lanne after he had passed away.  I was offended that Frank felt Mr. La Lanne had in some way made others feel bad with his overzealous treatment of fitness.  I defended Mr. La Lanne, since he could no longer, and suggested that maybe what this country really needs are a lot more Jack La Lanne’s and a lot less Frank Bruni’s.

In the process of being interviewed I was asked why I felt so strongly about Jack La Lanne and fitness in general. My response was something I have said and written before, but as I was talking, I realized I have never put it here, on the blog, so here it is.

OH MY GOD, MY FAVORITE EVER

29 Sep 11

Folks,

I am not making this thing up.  I am just not that creative. Please, oh please oh please watch this video.  I don’t think in my life I have ever said “oh please”, but this is that good.  I have a few notes for you all before you watch it.

First, the VOICE, if that doesn’t get you a stirrin’, I don’t know what will…

Second, the Price!  What a DEAL!

Third, and walking away my favorite, you have to watch the video till the end.  I LOVE the way the guy tosses the product away at the end as if to say “Yeah bitch, take that.”

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE BEST EVER.

It is so ridiculous even I can’t get angry at it, how’s ’bout that?

Enjoy.

Denis

This is a video I am quite proud of.  I am proud of it because as John was doing his POWER HIT thing we who were watching him were pretty much in awe.  He gets after it, and I mean hard.  Here is a very fast synopsis of John tearing through a hard workout.
