HBD.

Dang, 41 years. That's alot. I mean, that's 20 more than me. And I feel old some times.

But, you go to exotic erotic shows, so your Shaolin Kung Fu must be strong indeed. :eek:

On the way to work today, there was a big bunch of colorufl balloons caught in a bush right by my house. Very auspicious. My desk had two hilarious psychotic letters - one we couldn't understand at all and another to a GM we covered in the magazine last year. That one was 'hate' mail - 'you fraud!' kind of stuff. I love the mail we get. It often makes my day. :p It has put me in a profound reflective and entertained mood so far.

Happy B-day!

Thanks a million for doing a fabulous job in articles in Mag and forum.

Young people are in the forefront of carrying on the torch and passing on generations old traditions of physical culture in the New World.

That reminds me of my middle-aging.

We have a lot of interesting mail all the time, actually. I've got two full files of interesting mail, and about to expand to a third. After an incident involving a dirty hypodermic sent to us from a UK insane asylum, the postmaster general and police told us how to document.

ewallace: If we couldn't handle a little vulgarity, how far could we get in the martial arts, eh?

Happy Birthday, Gene Ching.

Although new to the forum, I've enjoyed reading your many kung fu magazine and e-zine articles for a while now. Hope your birthday is all that you desire.

...

Of course, Buddhist and Taoist principles might object to that last bit. So let's amend that to: Hope your birthday is.

NeuroGrrrl, welcome.

Where do you train in Tn?

Bei Shaolin Kung Fu Institute

http://www.memphiskungfu.com/

but I've only been here for a few months.

I used to train here, in AL, before moving to TN.

http://simplesite.fergusonsystems.com/websites/bda_3/default.asp?ID=2

Two Verrrrrry different schools. At Blue Dragon, Sifu would first teach you the ten internal adjustments. (He actually numbered them one through ten.) So for example, 4 was a meditation on breathing from tan tien. 6 was meditating on the feel of the air around you, etc. From there on, any drill or form he taught would be practiced by doing the form while concentrating on whichever internal adjustment he specified. At the end of a class, my brain was far more tired than my body.

At Bei Shaolin where I train now, the first thing you learn is palm/fist/fingertip/and back-of-the-wrist pushups, among other calisthenics which occupy the first half of every class. The first couple of weeks were really tough, but after getting through them and more, I realize that I haven't been in this good shape since high school. Also we spar here, which is entirely new to me. (No sparring at the former school.) So here, my body is far more tired than my brain.

Naturally, I feel that both internal and external aspect of kung-fu should be trained, so I'm trying to apply the principles of the first school into my training at the present school. If my brain and body are equally tired, then I've finally gotten a good workout, right?

NeuroGrrrl - Thanks for your kind words about my work.

Why do I feel like a girl just popped out of my b-day cake and hijacked the party. I guess that's the way it would happen for real if I ever did get a girl in a cake. It wouldn't be like Under Siege now, would it?

The morning has been busy. I'm trying to do our last proofing of the next issue, and I got as far as page 1 before lunch. Too many calls and emails....

Happy Birthday, Gene!

What do you know, it's your birthday and our old resident strangefruit BL gets a mention! Well, just for you, here's my birthday present to you. Sorry to pimp another forum here (it's a great forum, by the way!) but this is something I know Gene can appreciate. It'll make you eyes bleed.

Heading for her third forum banning! (http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28074)

Didn't mean to hijack your party, Gene. But enjoy the cake.

GeneChing

Thanks for the well wishes everyone. I finally did get through all that proofreading.

And I was joking about hijacking the party, NeuroGrrrl. With the high male to female ratio here in CMA, I glad that a member of the fairer sex even showed up. ;)

It was a good b-day, spent with family, very relaxing. Plus I got a membership to the Asian Art Museum again as a gift from my wife, so I'm pretty stoked about that.

Do people still say "stoked"? Am I showing my age?
