TEAMS OF FIVE STRIVE TO SURVIVE! (Yea, I know there's six of us, but @fitlegittraining is like, our manager)

#SurvivorSeries weekend workout, and I couldn't ask for a better group of guys and gals to have on my team.

When we lift together, none of us ever get eliminated. Even when the workouts are incredibly challenging, there's always someone at Fit Legit to inspire and motivate you to keep pushing.

Remember-- you don't have to go on this journey alone.

We got this.

Took @carriebot ‘s cabinet she was using for our letterpress instruments , sanded , and repainted it. Used #montanagold #ironcurtain for the top. Used regular #krylon black and painted the rest. #homeinprovement #reclaimedfurniture #ghostsharklabs

@lynaegrant sizing up the Berlin Wall. It’s still hard to realize that this all took place not too long ago. One thing that was said only weeks before the Wall was erected was “no one has the intention of building a wall...” and overnight it went up. I️ hope that history is not repeated any time soon. #history #learnfrommistakes #ironcurtain #berlinwall #memorial #germany

At the Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin which was manned by American allies during the Cold War. As you can see, it's now a huge tourist attraction 😀. #checkpointcharlie #checkpoint #usarmysoldier #berlino #berlijn #berlinwall #coldwar #thecoldwar #ironcurtain #deutschland #germany🇩🇪 #berlinattractions #usarmy #berline #berlinerdom #berliner #iloveberlin #berlincity #berlintrip

When we thought our trip couldn’t get geekier, we found a Winston Churchill museum in a 17th c Christopher Wren church - & the Berlin Wall because why not!

We kept seeing highway signs for the National Churchill Museum and thought there was no way there could be a museum honoring *the* Winston Churchill in the middle of Missouri. (Plus our enthusiasm was heightened as we'd all watched The Crown.) But there is! And it’s spectacular! Westminster College in Fulton, MO is where Winston Churchill gave his famous speech in 1946 predicting the rise of the Iron Curtain. In the 1960s, the school decided to mark the 20th anniversary of Churchill’s iconic speech by buying a London Church that had been destroyed two times – once in the London fire and once in WWII – and reconstructing it stone by stone on its campus. The Berlin Wall arrived in 1990 as part of a sculpture by artist Edwina Sandys, Churchill’s granddaughter.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Always pull over for random roadside attractions. You could find the world's largest ball of twine or the world's largest political personality.

K téme komunizmu nie je veľa ozaj dobrých detských kníh, Múr od Petra Sísa je preto výnimočný témou aj spracovaním. O tom, ako sa vyrastalo za Železnou oponou a čo všetko zmenila Nežná revolúcia sa dá rozprávať už s 8 - 9 ročnými. .

Today, on November 17th, us, Czechs&Slovaks should find a time to say how grateful we're for the freedom that was given to us by our parents in 1989. The freedom is a permanent work and a gift that should be shared. Let's be more willing to share and don't take the world around us for granted, since it's not* #velvetrevolution #vaclavhavel #havel #havelforpresident #freedom #politics #takecare #notforgranted #migration #ironcurtain #dikyzemuzem

17.november je najväčší sviatok, aký máme. Len vďaka nemu žijeme slobodne. To, do akej miery vieme tú slobodu užiť zodpovedne, je na nás. Sloboda je aj v tom, čím si môžeme dnes pripiť. Nazdravie! 17 November is the most important public holiday in Slovakia, for it brought back #freedom to this part of Europe divided by the Iron curtain.

Day 7 of 20 - November 15th
“Berlin Wall Shadows”, the upcoming short stories book by Ralph Hänel

The Mighty Telephone
Having a telephone in East Germany was extremely rare. The public phone network was basically left-over from the 1920’s. Even in 1989 only an estimated 11 out of 100 East German citizens owned a home phone. Many waited 10 to 25 years. Typically, only directors of companies, doctors, high level members of party and government, police, military and naturally secret service, doctors, important artists had a home phone. Some had a number, shared during the day with a business, only privately available in the evening. Some phone numbers were shared between two independent households. When the other household was talking, you heard a busy signal, and had to wait. Military, Police, Secret Service, the Government, the Soviet Union army, they all had their independent phone networks.
Until 1989 only 216 phone lines existed across the border from East to West Germany.
The phrase: “I better don’t tell you about “that” on the phone.” was very common.

Sad to hear that #WarpedTour will be coming to an end in 2018.

Had one of my favorite life moments at Warped with AIW when I wrestled against Facade and Every Time I Die's Andy Williams in 2015, and gained a great friendship out of it.

I just love to quote Lenin's genius, comrades. «Капиталисты будут продавать нам веревку, с которой мы их повесим». - Владимир Ленин.

Мне просто нравится цитировать ленинский гений, товарищи.

The workout @fitlegittraining last night had me-- shell shocked-- get it?

My body was killing me during four rounds of burpees, kettlebell swings, barbell floor presses, and 75 pound medicine ball squats-- which was the WORST.

Notice how my left hand grips my cerebral palsy wrist tightly to hold the ball.

It took 22 minutes, but when you start something, it's important to endure the challenge and finish the job.

Day 6 of 20 - November 14th
“Berlin Wall Shadows”, the upcoming short stories book by Ralph Hänel

Innocent Times
With childhood friends in front of our apartments, during Fasching, Germany's carnival season

Recently I talked to my kids about a documentary from the early 1980’s. A West German camera team asked in East Berlin people on the street about the rent they are paying. Quite often the answer was: “I don’t even know.” or “I am not sure. It just comes out of the account.” I paid in the 1980’s 23 East German Marks per month for a 2-room apartment with a 5-liter hot water boiler and coal ovens, no bath or shower, in an old apartment building. The same rent my parents paid already at the end of the 60’s.
Young families, lucky enough to get a 3-room apartment in a brand-new building, with bath tub and running hot water and central heating, paid around 60 to 80 Mark per month in rent. This is one of the reasons why some older people wish for a comeback of Communist times

Also, sorry for my week absence. I'll be back to regular posting from now.

Day 5 of 20 - November 13th
“Berlin Wall Shadows”, the upcoming short stories book by Ralph Hänel

Family Vacation in Prague
With my father in the early 70’s on the Charles bridge (its construction started in 1357)

East Germans couldn’t just pack a suitcase, grab their passport, go to an airport and pick a destination. First of all, the majority didn’t have passports, only a national ID. Secondly, when I grew up in the 1970’s only Czechoslovakia and Poland were freely accessible.
Under Lech Walesa, striking Polish workers won in August of 1980 a sweeping victory in a two-month battle with their Communist rulers for the right to independent trade unions and the right to strike (BBC). This ended free travel for us to Poland. Now, one country was left.

We needed a permit or campground or hotel booking, to travel to Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, the Soviet Union and Mongolia. Individual, not preplanned travel to the Soviet Union was not encouraged. Strangely enough, since it was our “big brother”. Facebook page: www.facebook.com/BerlinWallShadowsBOOK

It's true. In the gym. In life.

If you want to rise to the pinnacle of anything, you've gotta work your way from the ground up.

No shortcuts. Doing half reps only gets you so far. Work hard and give 200% to build a solid foundation beneath you. With the right tools and a positive outlook, success will follow you to the top.

You've endured today. Now fight tomorrow.

Sleep on that.

Day 4 of 20 - November 12th “Berlin Wall Shadows”, the upcoming short stories book by Ralph Hänel

Business Casual, when I was (very) young

Clothes, trendy clothes, were just like many other things hard to come by in East Germany. When entering any store, phrases like: “By any chance, do you have …?” or “You wouldn’t happen to carry …?”, were typically followed by the answer: “Check back in four weeks.” Or “Maybe we get some by next Friday.” Everybody was trying to organize something for themselves or their family. If you saw something special being sold, even though you didn’t need it or didn’t want it, you bought it anyway. There was always an opportunity to exchange it against something else. East Germans very much were gatherers and dealers. A newspaper ad, promising “blue tiles” in exchange for particular goods, meant that that person was willing and capable of paying in hard currency, West German Mark. The West German 100 Mark note was blue. The money came from two sources, exchange on the black market via friends or coworkers, or from West German relatives who had just visited. The West German Mark was the unofficial underground currency. Which was particularly bad for people, who did not have any relatives in the West.

But East Germans were also inventors and fixers. Due to an ongoing shortage of just about everything, people became very creative in their homemade solutions.

If you saw something special being sold, even though you didn’t need it or didn’t want it, you bought it anyway. There was always an opportunity to exchange it against something else. East Germans very much were gatherers and dealers. A newspaper ad, promising “blue tiles” in exchange for particular goods, meant that that person was willing and capable of paying in hard currency, West German Mark. The West German 100 Mark note was blue. The money came from two sources, exchange on the black market via friends or coworkers, or from West German relatives who had just visited. The West German Mark was the unofficial underground currency. Which was particularly bad for people, who did not have any relatives in the West. But East Germans were also inventors and fixers. Due to an ongoing shortage of just about everything, people became very creative in their homemade solutions.

Reminders of the past. Visit the Memento Park (or Statue Park) and you’ll have a fairly good impression what life was like in Hungary during the communist regime. It was so amazing!

It’s hard to imagine that the Iron Curtain actually split the Danube separating Bratislava from Petržalka!

Hold up—

Part of what ended the Cold War and tore down the Iron Curtain in the first place was communist countries’ EXPOSURE to the west: to free radio, hippie culture, rock and roll music, fashion trends in capitalist countries, all educating and inspiring citizens to want internal change. People in soviet countries risked their lives to listen to Elvis and play electric guitar, and brought regimes down to have the freedom to express themselves. The US held concerts in West Berlin and turned speakers to face East Berlin, where soviet citizens risked arrest to stand and hear rock and roll. 
Cutting Cubans and Americans off from each other serves only to deepen the divide. We already know this.

One very ‘North Korea’ photo and one to show that even though the military is uncomfortably large, there are still 24 million people not in active service.

Took a stroll through Berlin, ran into some stone dudes, traveled through times good and bad, and got a glimpse of the future. 🇩🇪🏰⏳ #bismarck #realhistory #ironcurtain #thetimeisnigh #marxandengles
Day 3 of 20 - November 11th
“Berlin Wall Shadows”, the upcoming short stories book by Ralph Hänel

V is for Victory
Choosing some photos for the book. Not as bad as today’s insane political correctness, though some things were frowned upon in East Germany. I got the “Victory” T-shirt on a flea market in Poland. Here I am wearing it during a vacation in Karlovy Vary, then Czechoslovakia.

Wearing the US flag T-shirt at school would have caused quite the lash-back. One would have been called to see the director, take off the shirt, get reprimanded, call to the parents’ employer, likely a sit-down for the parents with their work-team, discussing how they could allow this display of an enemy’s flag.

By many seen as the origin, on 19 July 1941, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill referred approvingly to the V for Victory campaign in a speech, from which point he started using the V hand sign (Wikipedia). #berlinwallshadows #berlinwall #eastgermany #coldwar #rostock #eastberlin #ironcurtain #memories @luludotcom #luludotcom #luluauthors #bookoftheday #starsandstripes #visign #karlsbad #karlovyvary #grandhotelpupp #minigolf #shortstories #vancouverisawesome #vancouver #vancitybuzz #vancityfeed #vancitylife #vancityhype #storytelling
