Although I’m ten months away from 60 and riddled with arthritis, I plan my gym workouts the same as when I was 17. The politician is to lying as to what I am to fitness discipline. My exercise has evolved over the years, but I continue to work all the muscle groups with constantly changing exercise variations. I’m planning the next workout while in the process of completing the current one.
Though I may dread what I have in store for myself the same way Congressman Weiner must have hated having to fess up for his unsavory language and lewd photo tweeting, there are ways I can push myself to fulfill my health and fitness obligations. When I am desperately sucking wind and feel like capitulating, I think about the special lunch waiting for me at N.Y. Pizza off of Highway 55 and Highhouse Road in Cary, N.C.
The photos of Yankee greats, the Sopranos, the Broadway Subway, and Marlon Brando bring back fantastic memories, while the clean, cool atmosphere and spacious tables surrounding the big screen T.V. keeps me occupied for the short wait before devouring the best pizza in town.
I normally show for the lunch special thrice a week (two slices with toppings and a soft drink for $5.60), but I must warn you to call ahead on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings for your pizza because the wait is long, but worth it.
When gym members question me where I go to eat, they are stunned when I recommend N.Y. Pizza. They couldn’t be more misinformed. The fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and perfectly cooked dough replenishes my muscle cells and provides me the incentive to exercise intensely so I can enjoy it more. I’ll take it over a lean grilled chicken breast with a protein shake any time. I feel my best after a great workout and my lunch at N.Y. Pizza. Don’t ever doubt me.
Yours in Health,
The Fighting Fireman
They’re the real deal!!

I recently lived in South Florida for six years and went back & forth with auto machanics and service centers. Like politicians, you can never believe a word they say. If you are unfamiliar with the machinations of autos, you are stymied because you can’t survive without a car. You bring your sick car in and they explain how they will take care of you and your car. They mean that in a bad way for you and some extra cash for them. In 2009, I moved to Cary, North Carolina and had the same problems with the first three repair centers I took my car to. One luxury I have is to confer with my brother, Pat, in N.Y.C. where he is a heavy equipment mechanic and car restoration provider. He is able to inform me if I have been ripped off and is privy to all the deception that goes on in this world. Most times I know it’s a scam, flim-flam, whatever else you may call it; but you are at the smiling station manager’s mercy.
This was my sad reality until we were referred to Matt of Express Oil Change and Service Center in Apex. They are friendly, courteous, and provide prompt response. There has been no wait time when my wife and I bring our vehicles in for an oil change and tune-up. However, this is not why we go there. The local bozo will be kind and courteous as he robs you blind, and an oil change is not that difficult. We might receive a smile, but not a phony political one. This station is out of our way. I must pass about ten between my home and their establishment, but I’ve found them to be honest, forthright, and their ace mechanic, Matt, is exceptional. The manager, Steve Shields, is sincere and forthright. Steve and his family moved from Utah to North Carolina a few years ago to pursue his dream of one day owning his own auto mechanic shop. Today he’s living that dream.
My wife told her cousin about Express Oil Change – Apex. She was having a hard time finding a good, honest mechanic in her area, so she drove to Apex. She was so impressed with the service she received, she now travels from Greenville, NC for her automobile maintenance.
Cindy will tell you, I’m hard to please. I’ve also entered the ring to spar with Evander Holyfield, so I know the “Real Deal” when I see it. Try Express Oil Change and Service Center – Apex. “If you don’t like their work, they’ll clean your house for a week.”
