You do not have to be the best, the tops, the most anything. You just have to be--and that's the hardest to achieve.

2012 Weekly Challenge #39: The Power of the Push-Up

What do you do when your bootcamp coach says "time for pushups?" I'm willing to bet you groan, shoot a dirty look or, at a minimum roll your eyes. Admit it - you know its true!

Pushups aren't the easiest thing in the world to do. But they are worth every bit of effort you put into them. Pushups work SO many muscle groups. Primarily, they work your deltoids (shoulders), triceps (back of the upper arm) and pectorals (chest).

Then I saw that I'd have to pay $300 for tickets to the temple I used to belong to. It's very expensive to be a practicing Jew these days.

Memories

Memories

Awhile ago I got my first tattoo. I was excited and happy. Many people have tattoos now a days, they’re like little stories and memories to that person’s life. Mine means a lot to me, and each piece to it has a different meaning. The peace sign is for my Grandma, who I lost 4 years ago. She loved peace signs, and they were everywhere. The dream catcher represents me, the feathers that are free within this world and flow with the wind. The "Luv Ya" in the feather shows the bond between my Mother, my Grandma, and Myself. I love tattoos and how they can express yourself without saying a word. They make everyone even more unique. "Don’t judge a Book by its Cover."

Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission: Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Local Filmmaker Gearou's Mission:  Story of Janelle Lisa Cruz: Last East Area Rapist Victim

Todd Gearou, Sacramento based film producer, remembers well moving to Sacramento at age 15, with horror sweeping our communities as the East Area Rapist/Original Night Stalker continued his rampage of terror.  Having committed 50+ rapes and 10 murders attributed to the East Area Rapist, he, if still alive or not imprisoned, is nightmarishly still at large.  Says Gearou, “anyone who lived in the Sacramento area during the late 1970s will easily recall the overwhelming fear that California’s most prolific serial rapist and possibly future murderer had over this area.” 

Gearou, like many others, including law enforcement, often wondered what happened to this night phantom some 26 years after his last murder in Irvine, Ca (1986).
