What do abs of steel and a wooden floor have in common?

The abs are the most boring muscle group to work arent they? This is my experience, that if you work them hard you can feel very ill, like your going to throw up.

My abs are currently under a layer of fat that will have to go before summer rolls around.

There is a saying that “abs are made in the kitchen and not in the gym”, well that is mostly true but unless you are naturally endowed you will -like me- have to work them every day for about 15 minutes.

The reason I work abs is because I want to walk on the beach in summer with a nice 6 pack. Everyone will be sneaking a look at my nice physique, who wouldnt right,  because i’m pretty good looking.

Your wooden floor is like the abs of your house, it makes the house look very desirable and attractive, so why not have both? A nice physique and a beautiful wooden floor? That will definitely say that you are into the finer things in life and got it going on! Some things are not said, they are conveyed and when you walk on the beach, it helps to have a nice body, the chiseled abs are the icing, and when I have people round to my house, I want my floors to make people talk.

Some people get a bit apprehensive when the price of a nice hardwood floor comes around, but just remember the abs mate, they have taught you a lesson!

When we want something that is really nice, and will make us feel really good, we have to work hard physically and mentally towards that for some time, in my case 6 months of hard labour until summer. We all might baulk at paying $30,000 for a new timber floor, but really- if you want that and you know its going to add three times its value to your home, then why the hell not?

Its like the abs, if you want it then work at it and it will eventually come!!

Whats a tree all about?

Tasmania, Styx valley. This Eucalyptus regnans, named El Grande by the Wilderness Society, was the most massive in the Styx Valley. It could not legally be logged because its height exceded 80 metres. It was accidentally killed in 2002 during the burning-off of debris after the trees around it were clear-felled by Gunns Ltd, the major logging and wood-chip enterprise in Tasmania’s State Forests.

A tree is a living thing that uses the light from the sun, and the water, minerals and salts contained in the soil to grow.

The tree uses its bark, which has different layers, to transport minerals and water up through the trunk and into the leaves. This is where it gets turned via photosynthysis into sap that is then distributed down the tree and turns into more bark. The leaves also need carbon from the air to do this and this is why a tree is amazing.

A tree can turn an invisible gas into something tangable and able to be seen by us, a bit like quantum physics when we can only measure something by observing it, when we dont observe it is something else completely. If a tree falls in the woods is anyone to hear it? Im not sure because i dont live in the woods at present, I like the comforts of the city. But I do go camping sometimes but my wife will complain also.
