  1. I am glad that I popped by today. I saw something about the model of what office workers will look like in passing on the national news on TV, but it was only a glimpse that caught my eye and the story was over before I could tell what was going on. Thanks to your link, I was able to check it out properly. I’m a health addict and it even motivated me to recheck my posture and exercise more!
