    Hahahahahaha ... talking about "slapping" ...

    I noticed a lot of old folks like to clap hands in the morning, but not the usual clapping with the palms, but the back of their hands, and the side of their wrists ... my wife actually does that too, and it is supposed to improve circulation or something that I dont understand ... but I enjoy interrupting her count .. heehee

    haha, those are great ideas. thanks.

    actually i do want to a show featuring Chinese aged people. The do morning exercises, do chorus in the park, play mahjong, poker, chess outdoors, show birds they raise, dance in the evening....

    and other topic i find interesting is the games for kids in the past time which seem to have disappeared now.

    Men like to spit and shake leg.

    Women whom have weired fashion taste like to wear sandals with flesh colored stockings in summer. I thought it's kind of fashion style when I took a trip to China in 2000.
