I have a question: I live in a small apartment and have limited budget and can't always get to the gym regularly due to family commitments.  I have TRX straps (LOVE THEM!) but am thinking of getting dumbbells.  Are adjustable dumbbells worth the investment (ala SelectTech)?

If so, what brands do folks recommend and will give me a great workout?

THANKS!

+James-Brian Byers Adjustable Dumbells are excellent.
If you are short of space you could get a professional quality Swiss (Gym) Ball (anti-burst, high load rated) which makes an excellent "bench" for dumbell press/flyes etc. Also makes a great seat for sitting at the computer.
Powerblock Sport 9.0 is a great option as it can be expanded with a stage2 to take it to 90lb per hand and later on the stage3 taking it to a whopping 130lb per hand.

My father, WA2BEV, told me something a few weeks ago that a buddy of his was starting to get into PSK on 2 meters.

Has ANYONE heard this also or doing it?

You can certainly run audio PSK over FM, but at that point you're just doing it for the sake of doing it -- you'll lose many of the fine modulation qualities of PSK.

very cool!
 
Yes! Students with different abilities will get a chance to compete on sports teams. More than 40 years after Title IX increased opportunities for girls and women, this is good news.

Two words: Tyler Boyd!

That is all.

Exactly Pitt played the 4th ranked team in the country.

Pitt is like # 68...good showing then under those circumstances.

Devin is a good guy. I hope he DOES break AB's record, but it will be tough going this year.

No way. That's probably a woman's car and the plate is representing her husband. "Honey guess what?! I got your name on my license plate!! I think you should get mine on yours!"

New personal best on the dumbbell curl. Probably small potatoes to most folks, but I'm wicked proud!
