    Time to break out my Beach Boys records.Hmm was there once a surfing record called Break Out?There I go again with my pop music history

    Where are Jan and Dean when you want them?On a more serious note.Could we have something about another aspect of beach culture-namely Muscle Beach and those Californian bodybuilders such as Dave Draper and Steve Reeves.There is also a link with the world of film via cod historical epics and all those sword and sandels type films.Now I dont think many{if any} of the films were great cinema, but they are a bit of history and have in my opinion curiosity value at least and no doubt sold an awful lot of pop corn at Drive In theatures.We had nothing that over here like that it goes without saying.

    How can I forget- Beach Party-type movies as well.I have seen a few bits and pieces of that type of film on Youtube.

    It also goes without saying that I should read more carefully what I have written.I am sure you will forgive me Vickie.

    In passing did and whilst talking in and around bodybuilding does anyone know that in his early days Arnold S spent some time in Londons East End where he was less than charming?I have at least one story.

    Dearest V
    How unusual and pleasant to see natural healthy beach bodies as opposed to those pneumatic numbers that sully the shores these days.

      Well the pneumatic numbers are largely the products of drugs if you have in mind what have when I read your words.They were around to a degree in the period I have mentioned above.They produce bodies that cannot possibly be sustained.Professional bodybuildings and those that would imitale them usually develop a range of health issues and that should surprise absolutely no one.I once read a rather grim autopsy report on am Austrian bodybuilder who wished the same fame as Arnold S and it was astounding the amount of damage done prior to his death.Had he not died of what he had it was clear that he would have had a very,very short life.He had frankly doomed himself with his obsession.

    “So, this is Surfing, is it?”, said Mary Ann “I don’t like it!”

    I love the look of surfing.I cannot swim and am frightened of water,yet love the sea.Make that out.
