This is a fancy version of "I only tell lies". Well if that is true, then that sentence is also a lie, so one does tell some things that are true, and then that sentence is false because some things that one says are true, ... oh dear. In m... Read more
Surgery or drugs ... getting younger
Tuesday, September 12, 2017      5 comments

Oh another catchy title ... now for the mundane stuff ... Clearly we all get older with time, yet in some sense our effective age can be measured by what we can do. When you get older, and loose some strength or flexibility, or health, one ... Read more
Coffee calculations
Wednesday, September 06, 2017      10 comments

This is all in Canadian dollars. I've never been one for buying my coffee at Starbucks (or similar) A morning cup of coffee there is about $5. I drink about 2 cups each morning, so across the month that would be $300. A ridiculous amount ju... Read more
Herding instinct
Monday, August 07, 2017      6 comments

A friend of our daughter brought her dog with when visiting. A border collie. It is strange how herding instincts are bred into them. Luna went round and round the main floor. The staircase is in the middle surrounded connected rooms, by di... Read more
Drugs are never the answer
Tuesday, July 11, 2017      8 comments

OK, you may have noticed ... recently my blog titles catch your attention. Sadly the blog itself is perhaps not so interesting. In this case though, drugs are the answer. In general I don't like prescription medication. Recently though... Read more
Wot's that?

I'm renovating a country house. One of the things I'm doing is putting LED bulbs everywhere, and they come in different hues, so less blue, more yellow, whatever you like. I was thinking those LED bulbs are expensive. It is going to take ma... Read more
Took off my watch and glasses ... and I made it.
Tuesday, July 04, 2017      7 comments

I started drinking my morning coffee without thinking. I should have weighed myself first. So I got on the scale in my birthday suit, 175.1 pounds, I wanted 175.0. Then I realized that I still had my glasses and watch on, so I took them off... Read more

When I started my weight loss journey I was wearing pants with a 40 inch waist. When I got down to 36 I kept the 38-s, just in case, but donated the good 40-s and threw out the others. This kept going. I've been at 32 now for over 2 years, ... Read more

Subject: curing type-2 diabetes with fasting and bulletproof coffee Well, I've been thinking of going on a fast for a while. Why? Because I've read that fasting can reverse type-2 diabetes (which I have). I've read online about this... Read more
