It all about the content.
April 1, 2013. Happy April Fool’s Day everyone. Hope that your day is as beautiful as mine. After rain and chilly weather all Easter, today dawned with a nice clear sky, and some warm temps to take the chill away.
One month closer to taking my annual trip down to North Carolina for vacation. I can hardly wait…
I have been following the Paleo Diet for the past week. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this, the Paleo Diet or way of eating where you stop eating sugar, grains, flours, dairy, and all processed foods. So what does that leave you to eat, you might ask? Beef, seafood, pork, poultry are all fair game, so to say, as long as they are not processed and pumped full of chemicals. As are nuts, fruits, and vegetables.
Anything that could have been found by our Paleolithic fore fathers. Also means that you use sea salt instead of iodized salt.
I have struggled with my weight, like millions of others, for years. I have had success with food plans, and I have also have had setbacks. I liked atkins a whole lot, but didn’t like that I couldn’t eat vegetables like I wanted. And fruit? I love fruit, but you can’t eat fruit on Atkins. And that sucks.
I have recently started hearing about a way of eating called the Paleo Diet. The concept around this is eating unprocessed foods, no sugar, no dairy, no flour. This leaves nuts, meat, vegetables, and fruit. Now this is a food program I can get down with.
On top of that, I am in the market for a new bed. And it is making me crazy. This is the first time that I have had the opportunity to choose my own stuff. Up until now, I have been married and my wife always was given the responsibility of choosing what furniture she wanted. I had very little input. Now, it is all me and I am frozen in place trying to make a choice.
I know I want a rustic bed. Other than that, I don’t know if I want pine, aspen, or cedar. A 4-poster, or some other style. Gah!! This is insane.
Or rather the beginning of 2013.
How ya been? Me, I have been getting used to being single, and living around that.
I started thinking about this forum a couple of days ago. Started with wondering what the heck I was going to do with this site. Was I going to shut it down? Or am I going to keep going? Pros and cons to both sides.
When I first started blogging it was as a way to get some of the craziness out of my head. To give me a fairly safe audience for my writing. And then I started monetizing it. Did very well with that, and I really think that I am going to get back to that part of the whole process real soon. And then the marriage broke down and I quit my blogging.
Jump ahead three years and we are here.
Guess I am going to give it another try.
Feels good to be back. Thanks for waiting.
Well, not really…but with the growth of the lower class, the near annihilation of the middle class, and the upper class sitting around eating cake as they decide the fate of those of us who don’t fit into that economic group I have an idea.
Kick out all of the criminals from their prisons. Put them back into society. Open the prisons to our elderly. Every old person who is in need should be given a prison cell. Take off the bars, because you aren’t going to need them any longer. Give our parents, grandparents, and those who no longer have children a safe place to live. A place where they will have adequate medical care, three meals a day, and a safe, sheltered place to live.
That is the warm and fuzzy part of the equation. What the heck do we do with the criminals who we just turned out onto the street? There are approximately 311,000,000 people living in the US, according to the 2011 census. There are estimated 260,000,000 guns in American households. So, now, what do you do with all of those criminals out on the street? Allow our law-abiding gun owners carte blanc to shoot if they see criminals in the act.
Can you see bands of gun-toting vigilates roaming our streets at all hours of the day and night looking for the bad guys? And all the while this is going on, our elders are eating lunch, while watching tv. Or playing mah-jong, or canasta, dominos, or whatever the heck they want to do. Because they don’t have to worry about anything.
I like this kind of world…..
Time to start talking again. To lay out my thoughts. Time to peel back the layers of my soul and reveal it to the world.
Or at least to whoever reads this other than myself.
I don’t know why I do it, but every time I drink coffee on an empty stomach it sends my blood sugar level racing down to zero. I understand this. I know what it feels like, and yet I still do it. And why? Because I don’t always eat breakfast, and I do so love coffee. Just the thought of grinding the beans, and then plugging in the coffee maker so that the water can heat up and start its journey to the final destination of the carafe. That is a pleasant thought.
But if I don’t eat with the coffee, then the crap starts. And that is where I am right now. What the heck do I want to eat? Do I want to go get dressed and go out in public to purchase some food, or do I just make something from what I have here in the house? Such confusion, such angst over a little twinge of hunger….
What is a guy to do?
Yes kids….it looks like spring has finally sprung here in Pennsylvania. Today is is going to be in the 70′s with clear skies and just the hint of a breeze caressing your cheek.
I love spring. But then again, who doesn’t? Even with the mild winter we had this year, the cold rain and the sleet were just too much to bear if you ask me. I just do not enjoy being cold. Time now to wake up the gardens and let the sun warm up the soil. Of course I do know that there is the distinct possibility of an onion snow yet. Though I am truly hoping that we have already received that. The idea of nothing but sunshine and a warm spring rain makes me a lot happier….
Love the spring….
Hi. The title has nothing to do with anything. I just wanted to have that as a title. And this seemed to be the time to do it. So what have you been up to? Me? Well, I have been wasting inordinate amounts of time on FaceCrack doing absolutely nothing but wasting inordinate amounts of time.
And not being here other than the lame videos that I put up. Before I found out that you could add a video to FaceCrack through the YouTube site.
Well. I think that that is quite enough for today, don’t you?
