Waist Reduction: Ketogenesis

70-75% percent of my diet comes from fat, and I lost more weight in the first month than on any other diet. The Mrs and I have been on a ketogenic diet since right after Thanksgiving. Our weights have been in a free fall for the whole month. Nothing I’ve ever done before has been…

Waste Reduction

“People are always amazed when I tell them we only put out a bag of trash every couple of weeks,” said my friend Lora Frost. What? How’s that even possible? You’re full of crap. Hippie. You’re pulling my leg aren’t you? Sometimes my inner voice is an ass. These we some of the thoughts in…

5 Bullet Fridays

Tim Ferris is my virtual mentor right now. I’ve read all of his books and am an avid listener to his podcast. I’ve also made a resolution to try and write something everyday. Nominally this would be on my book, but today I’m traveling and probably won’t get that kind of opportunity. So I’m taking…

Cocktails

It’s been a busy start of the year for me and I’m going to blog about the big changes soon. But first let’s talk cocktails. This month I’ve traveled quite a bit with a trip to Houston and one to Vegas. Both of these involved some good eats at nice restaurants and some time at…

River Song’s Screwdriver Epihany

This morning I was doing some stuff in my home workshop/office and saw the box for my River Song Sonic Screwdriver and it got me to thinking, which lead to a really cool epiphany. Rather than jump to the cool part straight away I’ll give you some of my internal dialog. In HTML Screenplay format….
