Did you know? World sit up record day?

Therapy Bits

Did you know?
that today is World Sit-Up Record Day? In 2002, Edmar Freitas, a Brazilian weight-training instructor, completed 111,000 sit-ups in 24 hours to break the former record of 103,000 set by American champion Bill Evans. In 2003, he reportedly broke his own record by 6 hours and nearly 23,000 sit-ups, for a total of 133,986 in 30 hours. Wow!

FOWC with Fandango — Percolate

This, That, and The Other

FOWCWelcome to March 6, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “percolate.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
