Starting off Sunday fluff

We've gone to church, watching Meet The Press, took ground beef out of my freezer for meatballs, jotting notes down for the week then planning for the week ahead, clip coupons, and planning to watch the Cleveland Browns/Bengals game later, Ultimate rivals!  Lol! 

How is your Sunday going?

I often use two kettle bells (in fact, they can be purchased in pairs ...) but sometimes only one. Things like lunges, walking lunges, double rows, etc can be done with two.

I must have forgot the double standard, perhaps that is how one gets around insulting a "friend" in such a public way.

Actually, the mother in this family is deceased, too. But the father is one of my husband's best friends, and he says that one of the harder things about losing a child is that people are afraid to talk about the child for fear of upsetting the family. But many families want, even need, to talk about their memories of their deceased children. He says he never forgets he lost his son, so he doesn't need reminding of him, but when someone shares a memory or calls on his son's birthday or whatever, his son seems more "real" to him after all these years.

Hmmm...I don't know. I am not that familiar with kettle bell classes yet but we are only using one at a time and the exercises are designed only for one.

I've seen (from outside the studio ;) only classes where kettle bells were being used in pairs.  And personal trainers working with individuals too ~ double craziness.

For instance, we have a very dear friend who lost their son, named Nicholas, in a car accident many years ago. Whenever I travel and there is a church dedicated to St Nicholas, I have a mass said and they send a card to tell the family that one has been offered. The family loves this and after many years are grateful that someone remembers their son.&lt;/blockquote&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;What else are they going to say?  And only you would know if the family really needs to have it all brought home again whenever you casually happen upon a church "dedicated" to St. Nicholas. &lt;/p&gt;</blockquote></p><p>IME, if the family is a traditional practicing Catholic., Bord's offering is about the best  that could be offered in remembrance. I am no longer a practicing Catholic, but my father, brother and I were greatly moved last week when masses were said for my mother, by her old friend and my cousin, 15 years after her death. We were able to attend both. We also had a Mass for her.</p>

I'm sorry to hear about your mother.  But I am a practicing Catholic and I think it's tacky.  You're not and Bord's not a practicing Catholic.  So, I'm not sure where you thought you were going with this.  I do question anyone's sui generis conduct in reminding a family of a tragedy just because she happens to be passing by a church with the same name as the poor family's son.  Again, the mother is in the best position to answer this, and I hope for goodness sake that Bord at least doesn't do THAT.

With kettle bells, you usually use just one, at least in the classes I have taken.
