I had a blog already done for today with lots of pictures and sad words, and after all the hours of work I put into it, I deleted it. Linda had literally once again talked herself into believing that her mother’s absence was the cause of her past unhappy life.
Of course it's not easy living without a mother, but to blame a poor woman who died way too early was wrong. So there will be no Hitchcock childhood tales of woe from me today, as this is exactly the…

Over the past decade, nutritional advice on how much and what kind of fat to eat to keep our weight in check has shifted much like the colors and shapes in a revolving kaleidoscope.
Ten years ago, most of us thought that eating fat would make us fat. Based on this belief, consumers sought to eliminate all fat from their food. In response to the demand, food manufacturers rushed to fill grocery stores with hundreds of reduced or fat-free products, from fat-free ice cream to reduced…

Do you have characteristics associated with metabolic syndrome? If your answer is yes, you are at increased risk for several chronic and potentially life-threatening conditions, including heart disease.
Statistics on the prevalence of heart disease in the United States are grim. Every 20 seconds, a person suffers a heart attack. Every 34 seconds, a person dies from heart disease. And although women are aware of…
Time for another rant.
Some of the elliptical trainers at the gym face a television. The sound is off, so I usually ignore it. But, I’ve been doing Interval Training.

To eliminate the evil of sugar, hundreds of sugar-free products were introduced to American diets over the past several decades. Nonetheless, Americans continued to gain weight.
Fats were the next nutrient to be demonized; consequently, a ubiquitous spate of low or nonfat products appeared on grocery shelves. Once again, Americans continued to gain weight.
Carbohydrates, especially pasta, rice and bread, became the next sinful indulgence, especially as the Atkins’ diet…
We took a morning off yesterday for a long walk (or maybe a short hike) through the woods along the south shore of Sly Park Reservoir in the Sierra foothills near Pollock Pines, CA. This was a very ordinary walk on well-maintained trails through the non-wilderness woods. Sometimes ordinary is good.
The lake was just an ordinary foothills…Continue

A few months back my buddy had a heart attack. It was pretty serious and it was touch and go for a while there. He has always been a hard worker, with a bit of a short fuse, but all in all a great friend.
What I’m getting at is that for years he was completely focused on his immediate goals and needs. Rarely had time to visit his kids; worked hard dawn til dusk and pushed himself intensely.
Well, I had the opportunity to spend time with him over the past week…Continue
