Five weeks and a day from Taco Tuesday

Workout notes weights and an easy 2 mile walk afterward.
Rotator cuff, goblet squats (lots of them) and 1 set of leg presses.
pull ups: 15-15-10-10
bench press: 10 x 135, 4 x 185, 8 x 170
incline press: 10 x 135
military (dumbbell), 7 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated, supported, 10 x 40 standing
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50
headstand (very easy)
abs: 2 sets each of 12 twist crunch, 10 yoga leg lifts, 10 moving half bridges.

Yesterday: 4.25 mile walk from our hotel to Soldier Field (Chicago)


The idea was to scout out how to get there; it turns out that one “solider field” location on Google Maps puts you in a park.

Election Odds wise, Hillary Clinton is a 3-1 favorite in some sports books; not quite that in others, and approaching 4-1 in others. (2/7 actually) Upshot has her at 78 percent and other models are similar.



This is about the time that the maps resemble the actual election maps, with maybe one or two changes. That won’t be enough to get Trump over the hump.

So, just who is voting for Donald Trump anyway? Yeah, some are affluent. But many of his supporters are not; this is an interesting profile of one via the Washington Post. This woman has health issues AND was part of a workplace action against sexism; you’d think that she might be attracted to Hillary Clinton. But she isn’t.

She fits the unflattering profile of “them”; someone who believes that slogans and a strong personality are what we need to “fix our problems” and to “return” our country to a better era.
