Remembering Animals on Remembrance Day

Why isn’t this a horse rather than a dog? Is this really about animals or something for self-indulgent pet owners? I’m sure there were far more horses used in wars than dogs.

If it is for the pets… why are they always dogs?

I hope everyone wearing a purple poppy is also wearing at least one red poppy, for the humans lost to the wars.

Exercise Regime

MY NEW EXERCISE REGIME:

Begin with a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand. (I’m at this level.)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

Treasure Hunt in the Library (New York)

NY Public Library to hold overnight treasure hunt – Yahoo! News.

NEW YORK – The majestic main branch of the New York Public Library is seeking 500 people to spend the night there on a scavenger hunt designed to tap into their inner creativity and potential as they explore its miles of rare treasures.

The hunt, called “Find the Future: The Game,” was created for the library’s centennial celebration by Jane McGonigal, renowned for designing games that tackle real-world problems.

“We realized that if we could bring players face to face with these treasures, these world-changing objects from the past, they would be able to tap into their own world-changing potential,” said McGonigal, the author of the best-seller “Reality is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World.”

Would-be scavengers at the midtown Manhattan library can register on a website going online Friday. Each needs to complete a written challenge, or quest, for the chance to play the game, which starts on May 20 at 8 p.m. and ends the next day at 6 a.m.

“We want people to engage with their imaginations, their creativity,” said Caro Llewellyn, the producer of the library’s centennial celebration.

The goal of the game is for people to write stories about the kind of future they want to see and the kind of world they envision, she said.

It’s an opportunity, McGonigal added, for people to “leave their own legacy.”
