A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Just got this notification at work:

"Question all emails originating from WDFW (Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife), even if you know the sender. WDFW has informed us that they have been infected by a viscous cyber attack that is actively affecting their email. Malicious emails are being sent from known WDFW employees, containing a malicious attachment. The WDFW Cyber Security team is aggressively working to combat this malicious attack and is asking all party's to be very cautious when opening emails until the all clear is given."
