You might be enlightened to learn how the French look at conditions like ADD/HD.  I find this as fascinating as those sights and smells you brag about, Lol.

I can only work out after work during my slow times when I am only working 5-6 hours a day.   After working a 7.5-9 hour day of moving around boxes my  body is too sore.  I have been doing the after work thing for awhile but now that we are getting busy am making the transistion to morning.  One advantage of my job though it takes care of the weight lifting aspect so I only have to do cardial.  I usually only do weights if is is extremely slow at work or if I have time off work for a few days

Yeah that IS exercise too so that is just as good. We do small 3 lb weights in Zumba and resistance bands in Kickboxing. I am very sore the next day but it is a good sore.

I love my Singer 201.  It's now my main sewing machine.  Nothing else goes through 3 layers of home dec chenile with linings like it.  And all my Featherweight attachments fit it.  I now have 3 styles of bobbins however.

I love my 201, too. It's my favorite machine for garment work. Mine's a treadle in straight leg treadle cabinet.  I'm thinking of giving it a whirl on free motion quilting soon, too.

Mine has a motor.  My treadle needs a new bobbin case.  I should get one for it.  It would make a great leg work out machine.  Sewing and exercise--a win-win situation.

My 201 edges out the 301 because it takes all the accessories my other Singers take.  But I really like the 301, too. I love having a knee lever--the machine I learned on had a knee lever controller.

Why did you have to take off hats & sunglasses, was there a sign requesting this?

How about Thrift shop vs. Pawn shop????  There could be a rousing debate there.  Which of us here use either or both or wouldn't be caught dead in either/or?  Your opinion on whether using them or not makes you worldly.  Why would you shop there--like the deals?  Like the idea of re-using rather than buying new for some items?  Have you sold any items to a pawn shop and did you make any money?  Have you ever pawned anything and did you go get your item back?  Or did you find yourself going to a Thrift shop recently because you couldn't get the Mackelmore song out of your head?  : )

You have to take off your hat and sunglasses so they can get a good video shot of you if you try to rob the place!

We have a "family pawn shop" in town.  I guess it's called that to let you know that it is G-Rated.  It is the best place in town to get "deals" on musical instruments and small electronics.   I got my son's first viola there for around two hundred bucks.   I also have bought calculators there.   My older son recently posted that he "scored" a bass pedal for a drum kit for twenty bucks.  I have no idea whether that is as good as a deal as he seems to think it is.
