    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Not too shaby for a 39 year old with a smith machine who works out in the garage...

    Tryska, if you are out there, I REALLY liked your pic!

    lookin massive.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    I meant what I said.

    I admit you look good for anyone, let alone someone of 39, but I've noticed that you seem to know that already.

    You guys are awesome for the great compliments! Ty!

    Allen, I don't know why you have the attitude you seem to have.

    I am proud of my accomplishments, that's for sure. Over my time here, people have criticized everything from my diet, training methods, right down to the equipment I use to lift.

    I feel like I am living proof that one doesn't need a fancy gym to make nice gains. I have an Image 3.8 Smith Machine



    And a Weider 8630 Machine



    A couple of Db's, an ez curl bar, an arm blaster, and a few accessories...

    Even with these limitations, it's still possible to get somewhere if you really want to.

    I also found an old pic from 1998, just a few months from when I started on this journey... this was pretty interesting.

    Now compare that pic to this one...

    It's pretty dramatic!
