Xbox 360 250GB Console with Kinect
Purchased Kinect for kids and grandchildren(12 to 62 age range) over the recent Holidays.However I find that I am keeping the Kinect instead of giving it away as I have done in the past.
So at age 86( not boasting just lucky since all my brothers and sister have passed on)I use the Fitness "game" to improve my balance,muscular frame,and use up a few calories.Living in the Northeast it makesnit so much simpler to exercise in private and certainly a safer environment in front of a TV.Start off with basic fitness moves then finish with Zen section.Lovely graphics,calming conclusion.Key to success is get off the couch,forget the afternoon snooze and just do it.Not easy but guarantee you will feel better.

GREAT job! Good for you! It is GREAT that someone your age has the ability, and the WANT to stay active. You are going to live a long healthy life instead of being immobile and in pain/suffering! Keep up the great work!

Thank you for those encouraging words,shootoo.
Appropos of nothing my wife and I just watched A Perfect World with Kevin Costner and Clint Eastwood on Netflix but streaming from the Apple TV set up.We were using the internet connection through our Sony TV but would have more stops and starts downloading. Apple TV is simpler and much sharper definition.Worthwhile watching but terribly sad.That Eastwood is a true genius.
So what am I admitting to: watched TV for two hours when I could have been exercising to work off the tirimisu I
had for dessert tonight and the popcorn too. Again shootoo thank you.

Good for you, Harold! I had a lady friend (now deceased) who owned a 6,400 acre ranch in west Texas. The last time I spoke with her she told me that she had scaled a windmill the previous day to try and spot some cattle. She was 94 years old. I cautioned her about climbing up like that, and she upbraided me: "As long as you possibly can, you've got to keep climbing windmills. Don't ever quit climbing windmills." She passed away just a few days short of 100. She was still ranching.

Truly inspiring.Thank you.I'm always tackling my own windmills but have to keep my balance as well, but to scale a windmill that must have been quite an achievement!
