As an elderly gym rat, I identify somewhat with guys who try to  build up their bodies. It's a minor human failing, in my opinion, like overdoing jogging or yoga. I don't have conversations with the body builders, just take turns using machines with them, but they're nice guys. To me overemphasis on on muscle isn't repulsive. It's not harmful unless they use steroids. They're not hurting anyone. Almost all of them are eye candy.

That is my impression, too Chris. Just try to have a conversation with a muscle.

Yes, he looks like too many muscles and no brain - I hate that type!

The photo of the muscle man with the tiny, little, eenie, weenie dogie is just about as repulsive as a human body can be ... IMHO.

"Chewable Multi-vitamins" otherwise known as raspberries?

As for exercise, a nice walk around the perimeter of the cleared land to fill wild bird feeders, with the help of Dominic (black lab), Zek, Zeek, or Zeke?  (English pointer), and Spaz (Pomeranian Chihuahua mix) is about all that interests me. 

Zek, Zeek, Zeke?

Spud, we have been following th progression of the southern Idaho fires. It just seems the fires keep on burning. Hope you get out of the smoke soon.

Grinning Cat, I had been in the military health care for the twenty years I was married to an army man and had excellent care. For the past twenty years I have been under a private insurance plan and, frankly, I may have more personal service and nice bedside manners, but the cost wipes out any hope of having discretionary funds for household repairs and new clothing is out of the question.
With all that money going to insurance companies and my doctors and nurses, and medical care, I do not spend on other things, i.e. cars, haircuts, dinners out, rest and relaxation, etc. 

Just think of all the merchants that do not have my business because my income is tied up in paying for my insurance (which really means money to the middle man/woman).

Relevant to U.S. politics as well as health:

As Republicans in congress warn us of the evils of government-run health care, most of them are covered by taxpayer-funded government-run health care. You literally pay for their health care while they tell you that paying for your neighbors health care through a public option or single-payer system is socialism. They are 100% correct, it is socialism. They're just not telling you that they like their socialist health care, they just don't think you should have it. They are afraid you might like it better than the private insurance you have now that funds their campaigns and gives them money to push what is best for them and not for you. Members of congress are free to opt out of their evil government health care, but most of them don't because deep down, they like socialism too.

(from "We the People: 75 Ways Socialism has Improved, Saved, and Shaped America". Bolding is mine.)

Good for you, Spud! And I had the strange urge to "pound flesh", so I beat on my punching bag. Such good therapy--and exercise!
