The blogger tag

The Blogger Tag

Hello, dears!

First, let me thank Jolie at Joliesattic for tagging me. She is a very kind woman and an amazing blogger. She doesn´t blog, she narrates stories. Definitely, you want to follow her!
Also, I want to thank all the nominations I´ve received last week and give a brief explanation. I truly appreciate your recognition, and at the same time, it´s overwhelming. Last week I received a daily award and two more this week. I just can´t do them in a reasonable lapse, and that´s why I retired in the first place. As this is not strictly an award, and I´ve never been tagged before, I´m going to do this one.

I haven´t found rules so, I´m following Jolie´s lead :)


How tall are you?

168 cm, I think that´s 5´6.

Do you have a hidden talent?

If I have one, it´s well hidden :D

What’s your biggest blog-related pet peeve?

It´s hard to cope with bloggers who post seven or eight times a day. I think nobody has that much to say.

What’s your biggest non-related blog pet peeve?

Easy and need no explanation, politics!

What’s your favorite song?

What’s your favorite social media website?

Find me on Twitter and Facebook :)

What’s your favorite way to spend your time when you’re alone?

Reading, walking… something relaxing.

What´s your favorite junk food?

Chocolate ice-cream!

Do you have a pet or pet(s)? If so, what kind and what are their names?

Please, let me introduce you Face (male cat) and Ari (female dog)


What are your number one favorite non-fiction and fiction books?

I read more non-fiction: Chomsky, Ott, Escohotado, Gould…

What’s your favorite beauty product or tool?

Water! It cleans inside and outside.

When were you last embarrassed? What happened?

I´m sure I was a kid. I´m pretty shameless now :D

If you could only drink one beverage (besides water) for the rest of your life what would it be?

Beer. The oldest beer recipe preserved is Sumerian (Irak), an old prayer to Ninkasi Goddess of Brewing and Beer ;)

What’s your favorite movie?

Maybe “The great dictator”.

What was your favorite lesson at school?

Science, history and later, philosophy.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?

Amsterdam! I love it!

PC or Mac?



Favorite celebrity?

I don´t follow these people.

What blogger do you secretly want to be best friends with?

I think I don´t understand this question :)

Who is your biggest inspiration?

My mother.

What is your favorite blog to read?

I can´t pick one! I follow many blogs about different topics because I like them all. I will tag a few!

What is your favorite high street shop?

I´m not sure what is that, but I´m sure my town is too small to have one. Anyway if this is something like a shopping street, I do like shopping, and I loved this one at Copenhagen some years ago.

Are you in education or do you work?

I work, I do online training. Surprise!

One thing you are proud of?

Mi little website.

    1. Hahaha! I’m sorry!!! Now I realize I got cameo’s meaning all wrong 😥
      Well, you finally meet them and that’s the point 😉
      Big hug!

  1. I love it!!! I’m with you on the multiple posts in one day. I have to get picky when there’s too many which I don’t have to do. Thank you!! I’m pleased you did it. I have gotten several since this last one, so I’m going to have to stop. It doesn’t allow me time to read and comment on others I value.

    1. Thank you, Jolie 😊 I’ve enjoyed it!
      I wonder what the ‘chinese’ is saying but 😂 it was the best I found!
      I totally understand you need a break from tags or awards 😉
      Big hug!

  2. David,

    this was very interesting to read; Amsterdam is a great town, particularly, if you like to be entertained 24×7 from old culture to current pop phenomena. Thank you very kindly for the tag; I really appreciate it!!

    Keep your wonderful blog going, as it gives me a great reference for some new exercises, as I’m trying to get my old body back in shape :-)


    1. Thank you, Frank 😊
      Well, I should visit more dutch cities, but as you’ve just said, there is a lot to do/see in Amsterdam. Also, I like it’s not a huge city, almost for pedestrians and bikes 😃
      I’m pleased you want to get back in shape, I’ll keep giving ideas 😋

  3. Hello, Chape! Er….David! Yes, I finally found out your name, along with some fun and interesting things about you. Those were all great questions, and I enjoyed your answers! 😀 Yours is among my favie blogs to check out on a regular basis. 😀 Have an amazing day!

    1. Hi Michaela! I´m flattered, I think that´s one of the most beautiful things a blogger can hear :) Thank you so much for making my day :D
      Have a great Sunday!!
      Big hug, David ;)

      1. Hi David! Sweet! Do you know….it’s a double bonus. Your joyful response has put an added smile into MY day! 😀 So easily shared, isn’t it? Thank you. ❤ I will do my best for today…’s snowing some more outside! And I will be going out and driving in that later. 😀 Thanks for the big hug and right backatcha! ❤ Michaela

      2. Nice! I like to make others smile 😀
        Snowing there, raining here… Where’s the sun? 😥
        Be careful out there 😉

  4. Hey Chape!
    I have never heard of a tag, not sure how to tag someone! lol :) but I think it is cool you have been nominated and course you tag me to answer these questions to make me work hard today on a Monday, shame on you! lol


  5. I am glad you followed through with answering these questions! It was nice to discover more about you! Hugs for taking the time to share with all of us!😀

  6. I couldn’t agree more. Face and Ari are sooo cute. I’m so with you on politics. I don’t want to be like the ostrich with it’s head in the sand, but so much of what’s out there is so bias, how can you believe in any of it? It’s all corrupt anyway. Love that you took the time. Ciao!

    1. Thank you 😃 I didn’t like politics then, you can’t imagine how much I hate it now, LOL! On the bright side, I have two more cats (I think this post needs an update).
      Big hugs!!

Your turn. What do you think about this?

Lower Back

The Erector Spinae is not just one muscle, but a bundle of muscles and tendons. Paired, they run more or less vertically. It extends throughout the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions, and lies in the groove to the side of the vertebral column.

Latissimus Dorsi

The latissimus dorsi is the larger, flat, dorsolateral muscle on the trunk, posterior to the arm, and partly covered by the trapezius on its median dorsal region.


The Deltoid muscle is the muscle forming the rounded contour of the shoulder. It is divided into three portions, anterior, lateral and posterior, with the fibers having different roles due to their orientation.


The Infraspinatus muscle is one of the four rotator cuff muscles crossing the shoulder joint and is commonly injured. It is the main external rotator of the shoulder joint.


The Biceps brachii is  actually two separate bundles of muscles (heads). The two heads of the Biceps vary in length and as a result, are called the Short and the Long Biceps heads.


The Triceps Brachii muscles  have three muscle heads: Lateral, Medial and Long head. Primarily responsible for the extension of the elbow joint. The lateral head is used for movements requiring occasional high-intensity force, while the medial fascicle enables more precise, low-force movements.

(Anterior muscles)

The Pronator teres pronates the forearm, turning the hand posteriorly. If the elbow is flexed to a right angle, then pronator teres will turn the hand so that the palm faces inferiorly. It is assisted in this action by pronator quadratus.

(Posterior muscles)

The Extensor Digitorum muscle helps in the movements of the wrists and the elbows. It extends the phalanges, then the wrist, and finally the elbow. It acts principally on the proximal phalanges. It tends to separate the fingers as it extends them.


The pectoralis major makes up the bulk of the chest muscles in the male and lies under the breast in the female.

The pectoralis minor is a thin, triangular muscle, situated at the upper part of the chest, beneath the pectoralis major. 


The Rectus Abdominis is the most superficial of the abdominal muscles. It is this muscle which forms the six-pack shape! It is a paired muscle running vertically on each side of the anterior wall of the abdomen. There are two parallel muscles, separated by a midline band of connective tissue called the linea alba.


The External Oblique is situated on the lateral and anterior parts of the abdomen. It is broad, thin, and irregularly quadrilateral. It is the largest and the most superficial (outermost) of the three flat muscles of the lateral anterior abdomen. 


The gluteal muscles are a group of three muscles which make up the buttocks: the gluteus maximus, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. The three muscles originate from the ilium and sacrum and insert on the femur. The functions of the muscles include extension, abduction, external rotation, and internal rotation of the hip joint.

Rest 40 seconds



The Quadriceps Femoris is the knee extensor muscle.  As a group, the quadriceps femoris is crucial in walking, running, jumping and squatting. It´s subdivided into four separate “heads”.


A hamstring is any one of the three posterior thigh muscles in between the hip and the knee (from medial to lateral: semimembranosus, semitendinosus and biceps femoris). The hamstrings are quite susceptible to injury.

Lower Leg

The gastrocnemius and the soleus form what we know as calf. They are involved in activities such as walking, running, jumping… 

Rest 120 seconds


Rest 90 seconds


Rest 60 seconds



The trapezius is a broad, flat and triangular muscle. The muscles on each side form a trapezoid shape. It is the most superficial of all the back muscles.
