Musings on the olympics

Hmmm, am I the only one who is amused by the judging at Olympic events like gymnastics and diving? The commentators will gush over a routine and then damn it with one little flaw, such as "Oh, that triple twirl twist with a round-about roll is one of the tougher dives of these Olympics. So far it has been exquisit, and..ohh..that entry was not pepindicular...she just ruined was only 87.6 degrees..." How about giving these athletes a pre-emptive credit on how difficult and near impossible most of these moves are for the common man?

Well, I will do so here. Congratulations to every athlete at the Olympics. You inspire us and make the rest of us reflect on just how much of a coach potatoe we really are. Bravo

A novice's first time

Hello. I've never tried to "blog" before, but I thought this would be a nice time to start. In case you are wondering about my site's name, it has come from several areas of my life.

One, I was an archaeologist for a time, and old bones are what we look for. Two, even though I'm not that old, every day I get myself out of bed, I can't help but hear the creaking and cracking of my joints. There are days when I just feel older than dirt.

So, I hope to update this regularly with current events musings. Feel free to drop a line to let me know if you think I'm on course or just wildly out on control.
