My Vacation Home in the California Gold Country is Officially up for Grabs

Thanks for the emails. I love the love. What follows is the story and I’ll endeavor to make it an interesting story. It begins when we originally entered into a sales contract around October of 2001. Problems ensued. The seller had built the cabin too close to the property line and there’s a setback requirement. OK, so we abide, as the R/E agent submits a “variance” request to the county (let is slide). This takes…Read More

Don’t Expect Much; Then Rock a Bit

I can’t even recall my last post. I know it was while in SoCal last week, and its end, then we went home and within a couple of days, departed — to convert our long time personal and private use mountain cabin into a vacation rental. Many reasons for that and, no fucking need of being boring. Why should you care? But while I continue to structure and refine the rental listing on the world’s…Read More

Idle Thoughts About Blogging: Relevance is Irrelevant

…But first, some idle food porn. My youngest brother is accomplished as well, though I chastised him for not using a white plate for contrast. Flank Steak Click on the image for the hi-res. He describes: Tagliata of Flank Steak with Arugula and Shaved Parmesan and Grilled Glazed Sweet Potatoes. So there you go. A very edible dish, I would say. I’d also say that Mike is a great cook. He’s also an accomplished brewmeister…Read More

A Couple Of Noteworthy Videos for Paleos: Whole Foods and Religion

So what first, the funny or the serious? Coin toss? How about that the funny is shorter and relates to paleo a bit more, and if I might suggest, makes a bit fun of the Whole Foods fetish, and especially so for the super environmentally conscious. I give you “Whole Foods Parking Lot.” It’s gettin’ real. Laf. Now on to those who take evolution seriously top to bottom, to include neolithic power structures, including religious…Read More

The Book and What I’m Up To; Nothing Should Go As Planned

It’s no secret that my blogging is decidedly “off.” There are paleo bloggers out there kicking my ass in terms of much that matters: diet lifestyle, published studies, and even considering quotidian news media bullshit — my own forte. I remain resolute, in that I have done this long enough; and its time to do something else while only blogging about the stuff & shit I really care about (…and I have to blog about…Read More

All’s quiet around here now. But stay tuned for tomorrow when something pretty interesting will be unveiled for the first time, exclusively on Free the Animal.

Sunday Rock – Friday’s Furthur Concert & Jingo

A week or so ago my brother rang me up. “Hey, I’ve got four VIP box tickets for a concert next Friday at Shoreline. You and Bea wanna go with Dawn & I?” I really didn’t pay any attention to who it was — with all the balls I’ve been juggling, lately — and I still hadn’t by the time we drove into the VIP parking lot just adjacent to the exclusive bar and food…Read More

The Individually Optimal Diet: Piss Everyone Off

My last post on fruit consumption pissed some people off. Good. My previous posts from way back on including potatoes in your plan pissed some people off. Good. A previous post that mentioned using rice as a hypoalergenic source of starch in the diet pissed some people off. Good. I piss off vegetarians and vegans all the time. Good. Diets are like blogging. If you’re not pissing anyone off, then you’re not doing anything interesting…Read More
