Just fascinating, Ruth, especially the last picture. Just love it!!! It tells me a lot about Roman society. This was not a lady of high virtue, and their preferred body type is also fascinating.  The Playboy Centerfold of that time.

I can't wait to see more art as missing that side of my life. Just bought a book on Symbolism and painting.

Claire, you are right. The Romans had a much more relaxed attitude toward nudity and sexuality in general than is common today. They also believed art should depict people as they really were; warts, wrinkles, buldges and all. Here's one more not so shady lady; Apprippina the Elder, a resident of Pompeii who was known throughout Rome as a great woman. If you look closely, you can still see remnants of the red paint that once covered her hair.

Loving everybody’s photos!

My back and neck and shoulder finally calmed down enough for Pilates yesterday and a (slow careful) ski today. According to the new exercise app I’m using, my usual ski route is 7.4km not 4 km like I thought! And today was ski # 12 —- one more time than last winter. A lot of Finns are complaining how winter is continuing, but since the on-the-lake ski season started almost a month late this year, I’m very happy with the weather right now :)

Hello to All. Well, I push mowed for 90 minutes today. What a difference doing it when the temperature is in the 50s as opposed to the 80s and 90s (and humidity) of the summer. It was almost delightful! After a short rest, I walk/ran at the park. Now it's time to take a shower and then cook dinner. Have a GREAT evening everyone!

I am enjoying my last Arizona day. Early tomorrow we fly back to I'm not sure of what kind of weather! I took a lovely walk this morning and have been cleaning, organizing, packing ever since. Next, I am going to sit outside and read! First, I'll finish off my virtual Arizona tour with some television history. Here I am standing in front of the Ponderosa II. In 1963, Lorne Greene (Ben Cartwright of Bonanza fame) built this house in Mesa. The exterior closely resembles his T.V. ranch, and the main room is an exact replica of the set interior. Greene lived here until his death in 1987. The current owners honor his legacy and have gone through the paperwork to have it declared as an historic landmark.

After he died, some people bought it and remodeled the inside. The current owners, who are true Bonanza fans, kept pestering the owners to sell the house to them. Once they finally did, they remodeled the inside back to it's original glory & pushed for the historic landmark designation so it will stay as it was intended.

Was up and out to local garage at 8am to have the yearly car MOT as it's due my end of month (passed). Been practicing the new release and wrapping up class for this week and I'm off next week teaching for yoga teacher training. Start that on Saturday and feeling a bit nervous.

Hello all!

I can't remember who asked (I believe TrimTab?) about my survivorship appt. It was at my cancer center. They sent me a questionnaire a week before my appt that I filled out and returned. Based on my responses I met with a Oncology PA, social worker, my physical therapist (that I have seen a few times after surgery) and a dietician. I was also assigned a survivorship nurse who will follow me now that my treatment is completed. Sorta like the nurse navigator I was assigned when diagnosed. It was a good appt. Lots of things were discussed and I had several questions answered. It was long so became a little overwhelming towards the end. I think we were there for over 2.5hrs. I do have some mild swelling and tightness in my breast from radiation so have a couple more appts with the therapist who is a lymphedema specialist.

Ran 3 miles after my appt on Monday. Nada for yesterday as we had conferences for our youngest ds. Today I will run 5 miles after work and yoga.
