My name is Greg Seltzer, and I live in Pittsburgh, PA, with my strong, capable, and confident wife and my senior citizen Shih Tzu who is, well, not a good example of the aforementioned attributes. Trained as a historian,  I enjoy doing research and sharing my findings through writing and conversation. I’m also enthusiastic about fitness, mindfulness, healthy cooking, and sustainability. More generally, I enjoy reading and continuing to learn about the world around me–as it exists now and as it existed in the past–and about myself. Part of this learning entails dealing with challenges, which I also intend to address in this blog. Thus what we have here is an assortment, “a little of this, a little of that, probably more about fitness and history.” I hope you enjoy, and, just maybe, learn a few interesting things and gain some insight.
