    Default Keep on Moving Club: August 2017

    MS creates some real challenges to keep on moving. It helps to inspire each other on how to find ways to move.

    Did you stretch in your bed, swing your arms, roll side to side today? Or perhaps you did housework? Or exercised in a pool? Pushed the wheelchair wheels with your arms at the store? Post them here and we can egg each other on.

    Here is a re post of agates last night one, in case you missed it:


    This may be somewhat off topic but I saw this on the TV news (PBS) and wondered if others saw it--about Muslim girls in Bangladesh who are surfing in spite of considerable criticism from the male Muslim community:

    http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/surfe...ns-bangladesh/

    And, Insee that Howie greased it in with a midnight reply to Agate:


    "In a Muslim country, they are really putting themselves at risk. Come to America, and BBS will show them all they need to know! "

    For the record, that was the one time I was watching TV news because DH called me over for the surfing segment. Those girls are courageous and full of stoke. It's the start of the end for those medieval men who see women as on earth to serve a man. You can see by the expressions on those girls face and the swagger in their step, why I still surf, no matter how much skill MS has robbed me of!

    The girls who surf will end up as women on the forefront to initiate change and free their nation from female enslavement.

    You have to admire those girls! With the men in their lives saying things like "Women have to be treated respectfully--they should not be out in the open--they should be hidden," you wonder what century these guys are in.

    I don't get the equation of "being treated respectfully" with "being hidden" unless they mean that they respect women so much that they believe in sheltering us from the big bad world?

    They're afraid of their own sexual impulses. Why aren't the men all covered up too? You know, so women won't be distracted by their own hormones.

    It's not really about reverence for women at all. It's all about control and enslavement for the power men then feel.
    Did you read Ayan Hirsi's book, Infidel ? She lays it all out, the treatment of women by fundamentalist Muslims. Great book if you haven't read it.

    Same could be said to a lesser degree re some fundamentalist Christians

    Today I vacuumed the house in preparation for carpet cleaners tomorrow. Well, actually I looked at the clock and it is tomorrow now. Then I stood on my tired legs and ironed two pair of slacks that have to be washed and laid flat to dry, 4 blouses which I spray starched. That took quite awhile (but no exercising because I was standing in same place). Then I cooked dinner and vacuumed some more in some spots because they want it done real good. I also moved some small furniture.

    I am going to bed!!!! See you all tomorrow.

    Tying up plants in the heat would be exactly the kind of thing I'd find very hard to do. There's something about activities involving repeated reaching, even if the reach isn't especially high.
