The lazy blogger


Seems my routine is way off.  I don't get out for that early morning run which has kept me in shape, and I really think gives me more energy.  The lazy blogger.

My leg is feeling a little bit better, but now seems the lower back is messing with me.  Finding it difficult to sit at my desk, or drive without starting to feel a numbness.  Still have not made my way to physical therapy, and as stubborn as I am, I may not until next week.  The lazy blogger.

This day in history "On this day in 1867, the first stock ticker is unveiled in New York City. The advent of the ticker ultimately revolutionized the stock market by making up-to-the-minute prices available to investors around the country. Prior to this development, information from theNew York Stock Exchange, which has been around since 1792, traveled by mail or messenger.
The ticker was the brainchild of Edward Calahan, who configured a telegraph machine to print stock quotes on streams of paper tape (the same paper tape later used in ticker-tape parades). The ticker, which caught on quickly with investors, got its name from the sound its type wheel made."
My profession, an information technology manager for Reuters, is heavily involved with provided news and stock ticker information.  While I never had to support the original stock tickers, in my early days with Reuters, we supported very low speed communications between the exchanges and our computing sites.  Mostly a desk job now, where in the past I got to fix and install equipment.  The lazy blogger.
So, as we move closer to Thanksgiving, I notice that I have blogged well over 300 times, and with the end of the Mayan Calendar fast approaching, I will have to be approaching 365.  If nothing else, I have recorded a typical or maybe not so typical year in the life of a lazy blogger.
Back at the gym the past few days, as it is cold and dark outside both morning and night.  Moving into a fall routine.  Trying to get back on track with a Turkey Trot (5K) race coming up on Nov 24th.  The whole family is signed up for this charity run this year.  Not looking for any personal best this time around.  The lazy blogger.
So, not so lazy really, as I did 7 miles total at the gym, albeit (bike, elliptical, treadmill).  Magic Number reduced to 192.
