Kick those feet up

So this week’s healthy tip is to shed some stress, find nothing to do, and kick those feet up.Think about the last time you had nothing to do, where your mind wasn’t on the next step. It seems far too commonplace to be always on the go. And for the most part it’s a good thing, for a car that is never in drive fails to go anywhere. But it is just as important to stop for air, catch your breath, and put a little fuel in the gas tank.relaxing on mountain topPhoto courtesy of Wilderness Adventures, http://www.wilderness-adventure.com/So this week’s anti-challenge (for taking a break shouldn’t be a challenge) is to sit back, put it in park, and take some weight of those feet. I’m not advocating lounging around the next seven days, but make your time-off count. Sitting in front of the T.V. won’t do. Get outside, find a nice view, comfortable chair, and take in a whiff of fresh air. Go on, you deserve it, and the chances are that the ten minutes you take to cool the engine will get you cruising faster, more efficiently, and will add miles to your life.Sitting back and relaxing,-BradFor pasts posts and lessons learned over the summer, please visit http://www.adventurethirsty.blogspot.comlast_img read more

Long Island Weather: Nor’easter Possible This Week

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island is bracing for a possible nor’easter that could dump several inches of snow on the tri-state area this week, but the forecast is nowhere near certain.The worst-case scenario for LI includes up to 60 mph wind gusts, coastal flooding and beach erosion along with a mix of snow and rain Wednesday into Thursday, according to Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.There’s also a possibility the winter storm could go out to sea without impacting LI. But, if it does roll ashore, it could bring the kind of heavy, wet snow that downs trees and power lines, in turn causing power outages, forecasters warn.Tuesday is forecast as mostly sunny with a high of 44 in the calm before the possible storm, but there’s a chance snow could start early Wednesday morning when temperatures drop down to 32 overnight.If the storm hits Wednesday, the precipitation may turn to rain during the day when temps rise above freezing to near 40, but the chance of snow resumes after sundown into Thursday morning.Next weekend is otherwise expected to be clear with sunny skies in the forecast for Friday, Satuday and Sunday.last_img read more

That futility was enough impetus for a change at the quarterback position.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, league sources told him that Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano has made the decision to bench quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie third-round draft pick Mike Glennon, who will start Sunday when the Buccaneers play host to the Arizona Cardinals. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Freeman, a former first-round pick, became Tampa Bay’s starter midway through his rookie season in 2009. Since then, he’s compiled a 24-35 record. This season, Freeman has completed only 45.7 percent of his passes for 571 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. His passer rating of 59.3 is the worst mark in the league among 33 qualified quarterbacks.Glennon, out of North Carolina State, was the third quarterback selected in the 2013 NFL Draft, behind Buffalo’s EJ Manuel (first round, 16th pick) and Geno Smith of the Jets (second round, 39th pick). The 6-foot-7 Glennon threw for 4,031 yards and 31 touchdowns in his senior season for the Wolfpack. He has yet to take a snap in a regular-season NFL game, but did complete 33-of-70 passes for 397 yards and three touchdowns in the preseason.
