I am challenging you to solve these 6 Brain Teasers! What can be seen once in a minute, twice in a moment and never in a thousand years? Which tire on a car does not turn? What gets wet when drying? Two men tried to cross a river in a boat that can only transport one person. However both men successfully got across the river. How is this possible? On the way to the city I met a man and two women. Each woman was carrying a pet carrier with a cat. Each cat had 4 kittens. How many legs were on those going to the city? Laura is standing by Katey, and Katey is standing behind Laura. How is this possible? GO AHEAD AND EMAIL ME YOUR ANSWERS AT: Kpepin@eskymos.com

Good day!! What have you been doing to stay active? If your bed or couch is where you' ve spent most of your time you may want to check out these reasons to exercise! If getting the motivation to exercise is a challenge for you-- as it is for me-- set small goals for yourself. Like a 15 min. walk outside, or 5 sit ups. No doubt, once you start you will fill good and do more than your original goal. No matter what you do praise yourself for achieving your small goal and set out to do it daily.
Watch the weather and make plans for exercising while social distancing- go for a bike ride with a friend, play baseball, go golfing, or fishing. Enjoy!!
