Before the Plow Comes

What do Socrates, sildenafil Rosa Parks, internist Al Yankovic, Pamela Anderson and Wiley Miller Have in Common?

This is the time of year for making changes.  Since we are what we eat (among other things) that seems like a good place to start.  Influenced by the need to reduce arterial plaque, trim up physically, and two books: Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease (Esselstyn) and The China Study (Campbell.)  And, yet…

vegetablesWho cares?  Vegetarians can be so annoying.  They can’t stop talking about all the benefits and the evils of eating meat.  When they visit, I always forget and feel like doo doo for not accommodating their simple regimen.  Like converts to anything, ex-smokers, Prius owners, and Apple fan boys, vegetarians can be a pain in the ass.  Wait, I’ll love being that.

Washington, cheapest DC.  We had a great blizzard for the last two days.  Many Facebook posts of pictures of snowy backyards and decks and yummy casseroles and hot toddies.  Nature has shown who’s in charge.  Easy to talk when you’re retired and not part of the work-a-day world.
