From Our Amazon Store

I don’t usually leave feedback but thought I needed to on this order. I received my walking stick before my estimated delivery.
What a beautiful piece of workmanship. It looks even nicer than I thought it might look. I don’t really need a walking stick for walking but thought it would be nice to have in case of a snake or dog.
I am already looking on your website for my next one to buy. The only problem is you have so many to choose from. keep up the good work and I will be letting people know about your product.

A satisfied customer, David

Walking For Healthy Joints

I’m constantly impressed by the consistency and quality of Everybody Walk’s video productions. Here’s a recent one featuring an impressive young lady named Mikayla Minnig. Miss Minnig discusses the necessity of walking for healthy joints, and since she’s a juvenile arthritis patient, she certainly has a poignant perspective.

Pondering Preppers

Been pondering preppers this morning. A prepper is defined as a group or individual that prepares for a change in normal, world-as-we-know-it, day-to-day circumstances. A prepper may be construed on a spectrum, perhaps ranging from someone who grows their own vegetables to someone who has built a bomb-proof bunker. Yes, I’m working with a very broad definition here. Often times preppers are called survivalists.

Not a bad idea

I guess in a real sense, anyone who tries to live a somewhat sustainable life can perhaps be called a prepper. My family is a couple of years into trying to live a more sustainable existence: we grow veggies, raise poultry for food, enjoy our own farm eggs, and have even pondered a contingency plan in case our water supply is disrupted (i.e., our neighbor’s well). One of these days we want to get a goat for daily milk. Other than those basic things, we’re just as oil-dependent as the next guy.

Just off the top of my head, I’ve thought of a few items it would be good to have, in case something bad happens. . . .

  • Bottled water
  • Canned foods (i.e. sardines)
  • A good knife
  • Matches (or the ability to start fires)
  • Hygiene items

That’s my list. I would imagine the above list would only allow someone to be good for a few days (for example, after an extreme weather event), but if there was a more permanent collapse in the basic structure of the world as we know it, the list would need to be a lot longer!

I’ll leave you all with this quick video on preppers:

Dilbert & Walking Sticks

I actually found a Dilbert comic strip that mentions a walking stick. Beautiful.

Is Sitting The New Smoking?

“The trick, the trick, the trick,” he said, is to have it firmly fixed in our minds, “that sitting is the new smoking. That sitting is literally bad for you.”

For 15 years, Dr. Levine has studied the grim consequences of spending too much time on our duff.

For starters, obese people sit on average two-and-a-half hours more every day than thinner people. Sitting for long periods of time could actually make bottoms bigger because sitting down puts a large amount of force on the body tissues that make fat cells. It causes them to produce up to 50 percent more.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I wouldn’t say we’re anti-sitting around here, but we do have the word “walking” in our name. 🙂 More and more research is confirming what we know, prolonged inactivity leads to atrophy (not in the weight loss sense). The following video is worth your time.
