I received this email this morning:
I recently discovered your blog and I’ve become addicted to your insights, intelligence, humanity, humor and excellent writing style. I have a request: Will you please abandon your revenue producing job, your labor-of-love side projects, and your wife and children should it become necessary, to devote yourself full time to your blog so there is something new every single day when I log on? I know this sounds selfish on my part but I can’t describe the disappointment I experience when I see the same lead story. I’ve now taken to trolling YouTube to catch bits and pieces of your work (love the how to read clinical studies from the low carb cruise).
This request may be due to my heightened predatory nature now that I’ve gone primal. Nevertheless I sincerely thank you for your efforts to inform us about the disastrous nutritional path most Americans are wandering down, unaware, due to their grain fogged brains, that there is a better way to health and well being.
Heh-heh-heh. I thought that would make a good introduction to a post explaining that I’m taking the rest of the week off. I’ll be watching the fireworks with Chareva and the girls (I hope — the forecast is for thunderstorms), taping another episode of Fat Head Kids’ Club, and finishing (again, I hope) a side programming project.
I agree with the writer that this whole making-a-living thing is annoying, but that’s life as a middle-aged husband/father/provider. Perhaps someday a book or film project take care of that situation.
While I’m on my mini-vacation, you might enjoy watching this lecture by a doctor with diabetes who saw the light on diet and health.
Happy Fourth of July
