I’m not sure where I came across the saying #outsideisfree, but I like it. On trips up the turnpike to Kansas City, I typically stop at the Bazaar Cattle Crossing to take a photo looking south. The higher elevation of the stop is a perfect place to view the Flint Hills. It’s amazing how every trip to the spot is different than the previous time through, even if it was just a few hours. On social media, I use the tags #mostscenicspotonearth #Kanzaprairie and #outsideisfree, which all pretty much describe the spot.
Who doesn’t remember Jack LaLane, commonly referred to as the Godfather of Fitness? I remember watching him on TV years ago, showing us how workout in our homes. It seems that Jack was a pioneer of incorporating nutrition into fitness and informing the general public of how eating a proper diet could change your life. Well, you should meet my friend Matt Smith. He’s what I’d call the Godfather of Fitness Today. An avid cyclist, Matt rides single speed bikes, or bikes with only 1 gear. A fitness fanatic, he also uses sledge hammers from estate sales for his workouts. Oh, and he's a health nut, as he eats mostly non-processed food.
It takes the Earth about 365.242189 days — or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds — to circle once around the sun; roughly, it takes one year. If we don’t add an extra day every 4 years, we would lose about 6 hours every year, or in a century we’d be off by about 24 days.
