Good Tuesday morning everyone everywhere from Little Rock, Arkansas. Since I was a little boy growing up in rural Alabama on my family’s small farm, I have always looked up into the night sky with awe and amazement. Back then there was far less light pollution than now and on clear nights you could easily see the Milky Way galaxy stretched across the heavens. I would ask myself such quintessential questions “What’s out there?” “Who’s out there?” “Are they thinking the same things as am I?” As the renowned astronomer Carl Sagan once said “We are the stuff of stars.” Now 70 years old and counting this old soldier is still in awe and amazement at the universe unfolded above me. Pictured is the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California. #tuesdaymorningmusings #littlerockarkansas #starchild #carlsagan #stuffofstardust #milkyway #griffifhobservatory

Vi gillar verkligen när ni skickar in bilder på era fina fordon till oss. Här har vi vår följare Robert Melin's grymma Ford Mustang Fastback från 1968. En sån skulle man ha! 😎
VITA Elementary mendapatkan kesempatan kunjungan oleh veteran pejuang. 3 orang Mbah Kakung disambut dengan baik oleh siswa kelas 3. Mereka mendengarkan kisah Mbah Kakung dengan semangat namun tetap tertib dan rapi. Acara dibuka dengan perkenalan kemudian menyanyikan lagu Indonesia Raya dengan hikmat, baru kemudian para veteran tersebut menceritakan tentang kisah perjuangan nya,beliau memutarkan beberapa video mengenai situasi perang pada saat itu. Beliau juga menjelaskan bahwa pejuang di masa itu berasal dari berbagai macam suku tetapi tetap bersatu demi memperjuangkan kemerdekaan Indonesia. "Bangsa yang besar adalah bangsa yang menghormati jasa pahlawannya"
-Bung Karno- MERDEKA!! #VITASchool #vitaelementary #pejuang #veteran #Indonesia
Kids don’t remember their best day by watching TV.
My son Jax can play outside ALL DAY LONG!
The best time is ANYTIME- just as long as it’s not below 32 degrees or above 90 degrees- ( wind chill and heat index should be taken into account obvi)
Its important to developing minds to to out, get fresh air, pretend, experimentand, and use what they have.
It helps develop-
A creative mind.
An appreciate attitude.
A sense on wander.
Boosts the immune system
Supply’s vitamin D
Promotes physical fitness.
SO MUCH MORE!
I put this video together with a different song- by the Bubble Guppies, copyrights though.

I feel asleep at about 7pm lastnight for some reason! But I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to my right hand man... the man that taught me everything I know about fixing cars, bikes, how to conduct myself as a professional person and the list goes on... though I wish you were still physically here with me so that we can celebrate my success so far being 23yrs. Old! But I know you’re watching and I always keep you in mind with everything that I do! I know you would be proud! But I will continue to grind day in and day out with your best interest in mind! I miss you a bunch man! I promise I won’t stop being the man I am today! So until we meet again... Though life may still bring me some curveballs, I know you’re on my side to smash it out the park! #loveyou #grandpa #veteran #thankyou
A little progress update.
It's been awhile since I've done a comparison progress. Since the beginning of the year I pretty much took time off from the gym, and what I mean by that is, taking time away from the weights.
From January till the end of premobilization (left pic - July) I did not lift heavy at all. As you can see, the 3 months of being in the field took its toll. The equation (3 months in the field + endless supply of MREs - heavy weight training = added body fat and less lean muscle mass). The pictures are only a 4lb difference where you can see I have added a few lbs of lean mass back on and shed a lot of fat mass. Consciously eating more optimal foods at the same time slaving in the gym. I haven't tracked a macro since Novemberish, but I still eat strawberry cheesecake topped with cheesecake ice cream and the occasional double cheeseburger.
