Easily Program Your Amateur Radio

It is more fun to use a handheld ham radio when you can tell it to scan different frequencies and stop there if it hears anyone. Whatever your location there are places to hang out on certain frequencies. For example here are some of them around Milwaukee Wisconsin. The trouble is that wherever you go those places will change and it is hassle to program your handheld to know about them. Fortunately it can be done easily:

CHIRP makes it easy to program your handheld radios.

Yoga Pants That Men Will Actually Wear

Men like wearing blue jeans or dress slacks. I do. Do they have them for Hatha Yoga? Probably not. I couldn’t find any. I found the next best thing: Thai Fisherman Pants.

Do Thai fisherman really wear these or not. It doesn’t matter because they work. They work fine for me. I can do Hatha in them. My test subjects: these and these. Not the worlds thickest material but it is still cotton and you can’t see through any of the areas that count. Good for you and everyone else in class.

Are they the same as the $100USD version? Probably not but I don’t care. I’ll worry about that later. You probably can too.

They cost less than $20USD. You don’t have to make any stressful commitments because you spent tons of money on your Yoga clothes. Why wait?

A Yoga International Membership is Awesome

It is worth sharing.

The normal membership is free and it gives you limited access to tons of stuff. Great way to figure out whether you want to see more or not.

There is something for everyone from teachers to parents to you name it.

For example the classes on brain health and yoga for TBI recovery are awesome and you might want to watch them more than once :).
