I'm meeting a friend today to do a long lake walk. I'm eager to see how much the recent rainfall has replenished this lake that was dwindling due to the long drought period. My Kindle died a few days ago, and I have to say that I've miss... Read more

Monday, March 13, 2017      11 comments

I read on the internet that you shouldn't feed the birds (which I've recently started to do) because it disrupts their natural foraging patterns and can be harmful in that regard. Not sure that's true; I enjoy seeing them so much. If I stop, I... Read more

"Eating Is All Psychological"
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      12 comments

Yesterday I heard this casual remark on a radio show about health and dieting. Although I didn't hear the entire show, this comment has stayed with me. I don't think this point is made strongly enough in the weight loss world, especially when... Read more

The opening five minutes of this film are something no one will soon forget. It is something that no one has ever seen before. And it capitalizes on how society feels toward immense-sized humans. In this case, the women are dancing wildly... Read more

Another rainy day makes me happy after an eight-year long drought in SoCal. Makes everything green instead of brown. Refills the diminishing lakes. Hooray hooray for rain. About a month ago, I started putting feed out daily. No one woul... Read more
