Chocolate Milk--Recovery Drink for Endurance Exercise

Posted by K K THAM on Wednesday, September 30, 2009, In : Fitness 
In a study to  test the efficacy of chocolate milk as a recovery aid, a team at the Indiana University's Department of Kinesiology and Applied Science, Human Performance Laboratory concluded that chocolate milk may be an effective replacement for "commercial fluid replacement drinks" or "carbohydrate replacement drinks" for recovery between high endurance exercise bouts (note 1).
Professor Joel Stager, Director of Human Performance Laboratory told WebMD that the findings suggest that chocolat...

Fruit Enzymes

Posted by K K THAM on Monday, September 28, 2009, In : Food & Drinks 

This is a fruit enzyme solution that a friend had learned from a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) doctor.  It is supposed to be good for meat eaters as it has a detoxification effect.  One tablespoon is to be taken with an empty stomach early morning and before bed.  The brew tastes like a cross between a fruit punch and a wine.  Today, my wife started to make the brew and had the fruits placed inside two bottles to ferment.  I should be able to taste this brew in 20 to 30 days time.

What is the difference between a web site and a blog?

Posted by KK Tham on Thursday, September 24, 2009, In : IT 
Yola had replied to my query and provided instructions to change the blog page to a web index page but in so doing, the index(blog) page would be overwritten and I would lose my blog.  Fortunately, I only had three blog postings and it was not too much of a hassle to copy and paste them to a new blog page before overwriting the index page.  So now, when you type in the URL http://www.secondhalflife.com , you will get to the landing page which is my web page.  Clicking on the Blog tab would br...

Domain Name Register--AsiaRegistry Has Delivered

Posted by K K Tham on Monday, September 21, 2009, In : IT 
When I opened my email this morning, I was happy to find that AsiaRegistry.com confirmed my Domain registry had been successful.  Now I have another Domain name, but I cannot work on it yet.  Still struggling with this one.

I have had some difficulties with Yola who is hosting my web site and blog.  When I first started to use the free builder, I had the option to click on web or blog.  I thought there would be an index page for web and another for blog because the title of the page was index(...

Domain Name Register

Posted by K K Tham on Monday, September 21, 2009, In : IT 
(Originally posted on September 20, 2009 but re-posted due to some difficulty with this site builder)

Two days ago, on Friday, I registered a Domain name with www.AsiaRegistry.com and paid with PayPal.  Everything was fine and the response was "in progress order."  This seemed reasonable but after 24 hours, it was still "in progress order" .  As I was anxious to get going, I registered another Domain name with www.Yola.com; this one called Second Half Life.  What a refreshing change when I cou...

Over Fifty--Living Your Second Half Life

Posted by K K Tham on Monday, September 21, 2009, In : General 
(Originally posted on September 18, 2009 but re-posted due to some difficulty with this site builder)

Welcome!  This blog is dedicated to those of us over fifty years old (or shall I say, fifty years young).  I shall therefore write on subjects that most of us would normally be interested in, such as but not limited to aging, fitness, retirement and active living.

I borrowed the term "Second Half Life" from radio isotopes which I had used in performing non-destructive tests in the seventies.  A...

Notes on Brick Walls

When clearing my bookshelf, I came across an old book published in 2010, The Last Lecture, which was an International Bestseller at that time, having sold five million copies.  Flipping through the pages that had turned yellow, this quote struck a chord in me because only recently I was discussing with a friend how to handle brick walls that attempt to stop us.

Flee 9 to 5

Whether you are retired, retrenched or re-organizing your career choice, the book Flee 9 to 5, Get 6 - 7 figures and do what you love by Ben Angel provides plenty of suggestions.

I particularly like the Six publicity formulas you can use to help you get more media coverage at page 143.

It happens. It happens every day. People grow apart. Friends walk hand in hand until they find that their parts no longer intertwine. Lovers kiss to notice that this kiss that once meant weak knees and beating hearts no longer tastes of sweet love but of bitter goodbye. You once poured your heart out to the boy who was your best friend but when you see him again, it’s like the silence swallows you whole and you can’t think of one word to say. So you stare and stare and try to figure out what happened to create this chasm, this black abyss that opened up between you. And most of the time it’s not an argument that tore you apart but life itself. It’s you and it’s them. You changed. You grew up. You made decisions. You moved on. Things that used to mean the world now mean nothing and people that used to make you feel like you could climb the highest mountain now make you feel like drowning at the bottom of the sea. And that’s okay. Because people come and people go and it happens for a reason. Some friendships aren’t meant to last a lifetime, some people can’t be kept, some relationships aren’t worth holding on to. So let go. If they don’t make you happy anymore, let them go.
