It had been three weeks since I last went for a run. All that illness intervened, and I was determined to fully recover. Thursday was my first day with no headaches and no pills to suppress them. Friday I did my first strength training. I ne... Read more

No free lunch

Yesterday after work I was half-listening to the TV while some ad blared about "free" this or that. Yeah, free... for only $29.95 a month. When I was young I encountered an acronym in a science fiction novel... I think it was Robert Hein... Read more

As the cabbage soup simmers
Sunday, March 12, 2017      28 comments

Sunday is the classic soup making day, for me. I chop up what's available, simmer and stir and let it sit on low for quite some time, filling the house with scrumptious aromas. Yes, I am feeling better today, not that I didn't have a bit... Read more
