No jump for me this time. The fibromyalgia is really, really bad just now and if I mess it up and fall it will ruin me for a month or better. I'll be cheering everyone else on though!

And yeah, that is a great jump and a great hat! :)

nice photo...great flat, incredible jump! But this time I am going to decline......hurt myself last time, so this time I will sit back and enjoy watching everyone else :-)

The apartment is a bit messy so it's not at it's best by any means. Surprised that you guys like it!

Hehe, so we have a few who are ducking out early already, huh? Well, perhaps it's worth finding another way to participate. I'm not averse to seeing pictures of jumping frogs, fleas and jelly beans...or anything else that can get some temporary air for that matter. Expanding the jump club universe is good and none of us want mobloggers to hurt themselves.

That's messy? Seriously, you're joking, right? :P

WOOP! - TBK is having a sleep over for his birthday this year - you know what were going to be doing!!

nige says:

I know, I sound like an idiot saying that, right? I'm the messiest person I know, so in order to keep things tidy, I sold and got rid of as many of my possessions as I could. I figured the less I owned, the less stuff I'd have to leave around. I found it so liberating that I just kept on doing it, and now I deliberate over buying ANYTHING. This is what the front room looks like when it's messy ; )

Essitam, INDEED!

bethmadethis says:

Yeah, I'll the second the 'you don't know messy' statement. MAN, I don't think my flat could ever look this neat.

Maybe I'll try to get a shot of Bandit jumping...even at 13 he can still jump higher than any dachshund ought to be capable of on those wee legs. :) I'll have to give it some thought.

Factotum says:

"In the meantime, the current state-of-the-science message about exercise and bone building may be that, silly as it sounds, the best exercise is to simply jump up and down, for as long as the downstairs neighbor will tolerate. “Jumping is great, if your bones are strong enough to begin with,” Dr. Barry says. “You probably don’t need to do a lot either.” (If you have any history of fractures or a family history of osteoporosis, check with a physician before jumping.) In studies in Japan, having mice jump up and land 40 times during a week increased their bone density significantly after 24 weeks, a gain they maintained by hopping up and down only about 20 or 30 times each week after that.

If hopping seems an undignified exercise regimen, bear in mind that it has one additional benefit: It tends to aid in balance, which may be as important as bone strength in keeping fractures at bay. Most of the time, Dr. Barry says, “fragile bones don’t matter, from a clinical standpoint, if you don’t fall down.”

Were you stuck on the ceiling ;). Jum season... will have to convince Hari to a "big" excuse to decline (she jumps a lot but is very camera shy...) Have fun
