The KING of Swing

Image
So I recently cancelled my cable and only have NETFLIX: NETFLIX. There are so many random, horrible, great, amusing, boring movies. I’m still digging through the rows & rows of movies to choose from. I stumbled across AMERICAN SWING: http://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/American_Swing/70108791?trkid=2361637#height2010:
{Mathew Kaufman and Jon Hart direct this documentary that chronicles the rise, heyday and decline of New York City’s Plato’s Retreat, the legendary sex club that catered to adventurous heterosexual couples in the 1970s and beyond. Featuring frank interviews with former members and graphic footage of the club’s activities, the film explores how a once-thriving center of free love imploded amid drugs, tangled relationships and the rise of AIDS.}
This documentary is “FOR THE UNINHIBITED ONLY”. It is filled with some crazy, XXXrated, real life footage of te club in the late 70′s early 80′s It’s narrated by interviews with employees & attendees of the night club. It …

El Gusano

Image
The MAD GENIUS I adore, Worm has a passing interest in the fine art of wine making. The complete process can take anywhere from 3 months to a year, from start-up to bottling. 
(I designed his label for him, yes I do it up DIY stylee too!) This man is the D.I.Y. KING. He even goes green. He uses mostly recycled bottles some as old as the prohibition era = 1920′s. Worm makes his wine to give to his friends & family. If your lucky maybe one day you’ll get taste of his delicious home-made VINO El GUSAnO.

Let’s get physical….PHYSICAL!

Image
Exercise in essential part of living healthy that I struggle with. Being built of a small frame you would think I exercise regularly…. Hell NO! Bwahahahahahhaha……. I am about as lazy as they come. I sit @ a desk 10 hours a day, which I must say dealing with patients, doctors, & pharmacists all day is mentally exhausting, and then I go home & sit in front of my computer till bedtime. I have newly added cleaning (something else I despise) & popping practice to my daily schedule in hopes that these things will become part of my daily routine. Every Saturday I have committed to a family exercise day as well. On this particular Saturday in December I managed to hike 2/3 of Camelback Mountain.
To be truthfully, painfully honest the only reason I made it that far was because there was an elderly women on my heels the whole time!! Hahaha… Yes I am very competitive.
Below is a map of how to get to the CamelBack Mountain Trail.
