On the third of July, I did what I always do in the morning. Bathroom, step on scale in the minimum, write it down. I write my weight on the calendar. I walked back into my bedroom to mark it. I am writing about this because I had a Freudian... Read more

Obese 90 plus year olds?
Friday, July 15, 2011      18 comments

The radio was playing in the background as I went through my morning routine and at some point I heard one of the speakers say, "You just don't see obese 90 year olds." Hmmm. The point, I'm sure, was to emphasize the link between longevity and... Read more

Now I've done it. Unleashed my brother on the SparkVerse. I've warned him to pace himself... like me, he can be sucked into online things and get burnt to a crisp. Spark is such a rich environment, one has to carefully manage the time we spen... Read more

Chatting with my brother over breakfast... I cooked us a nice, healthy veggie omelet, and the topic of how good it is to see one another is never far away. He gets out here (1100 mile distance) only every couple of years. His comment was that ... Read more
