I go to Planet Fitness 2 or 3 times and week and yes, it's now full of New Year's resolution folks. They normally drop out by the end of March.
Indeed. That's part of why I spent ages 18-20 buying them at a true hole in the wall called Barney's. Joint had been there since before The War and was just big enough for a short bar, 3 booths, and a shuffleboard table. There was an Episcopal priest who came in every night for a 'near beer' - he was a true minister among the flocksom. They never did ask my age.
Was just reading something that my mother sent me about our family. Seems that we arrived in Philadelphia in 1766 from Germany and Johann (the first of our family to arrive) served in the Revolutionary War and fathered 10 children. Pretty cool stuff to learn.
