What Makes Your Day?
PHYSICAL TRAITS (RASGOS FÍSICOS)
Honor Thy Temple
I know December 9th is a long ways off, but I thought I would mention it now; plus I just entered this contest so it was on my mind.
If you live anywhere in the Royal Oak, MI, I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to see some powerlifting. I have no doubt you will see a few American Powerlifting Federation and Amateur American Powerlifting Federation state and national records broken.
Normally, you will see all ages of males and females entered in these contests. If you have never seen a powerlifting contest, this would be a good one to check out.

ART OF THE WEEK (ARTE DE LA SEMANA)
Ships can also be works of arts, and perhaps none more so than the old wooden ships of yesterday. I was in Boston in 1994 and had a chance to go on the USS Constitution. Below is a photo I took before going on the ship.
USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy, named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America. She is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat. (Source: Wikipedia)
EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK
(PERSONA EXTRAORDINARIA DE LA SEMANA)
What I liked best about George Washington is that he is also known as the man who did not want to be king. In fact, he did not want a second term as President, but Adams and Jefferson argued him into accepting a second term as President.
Napoleon, who came after Washington, made himself Emperor. In that context, you see how extraordinary was George Washington.
George Washington (February 22, 1732 – December 14, 1799) was [ ] the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797 and was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He served as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and later presided over the 1787 convention that drafted the United States Constitution. He is popularly considered the driving force behind the nation’s establishment and came to be known as the “father of the country,” both during his lifetime and to this day.
