Doing Fine In Baja

See? Hair tied back in a man-bun, back of head, cool like. …My newest friend, a Canadian expat, just 200 yards away, drives a Harley, has 3 enormous Dobermans, plays Pink Floyd loud, and has a sign on his gate that proclaims: NO SNIVELLING Whenever I snivel? I go down to the beach—5-minute walk away—so…Read More

Sorry Blog, But I’m Living for a Living

 Long story short: Bro and I crossed the border in Tijuana on 6:30 am Wednesday morning. Goal was about 750 miles down the road at Loreto. We made it to Santa Rosalia, a Mexican New Orleans. Check it out. Stayed in Hotel Frances, the former French administration building for the copper mining and smelting operation,…Read More

Good Morning Mexico

  And remember, no looking back, just forward. Trip began Monday at noon from San Jose where I hit the 101 south to Santa Barbara, stopping off in Montecito for the evening at the invitation of Drs Mike & Mary Dan Eades. She had amazing sous vide ribeye steak at the waiting, accompanied by roasted…Read More

The Fall Of The Jimmy Moore “Webpire”

That last word in the title is tongue in cheek, of course. For years—before I got tired and banned her—I had this commenter—Eat Less Move Moore (get it?)—who literally made reference to jimmy moore in each and every of several hundred comments, and was the one who first used “webpire” to describe his online activities.…Read More

Moving Beyond “One Trick Pony” Paleo

In many ways the Paleo playbook in retrospect—back to when I got involved in 2008—models a tendency in humans to have easy, formulaic answers and solutions to complex problems—rather like church and state as just-so solutions to complex philosophical and social problems. At various times and places, the predominant emphasis was on one of these…Read More

Rare Newsletter Update

Haven’t done one in months, but as a lot is changing in life, thought I might toy with putting one out there every few weeks to a month and see how it goes. Latest Issue. Topics covered: Everything has changed I love paleo but I’m not really Paleo I’ve embraced lots of starch in the…Read More

Post-Op Recovery Notes: Sugar Water as Medicine

 I’m no good at this. I was quite euphoric the day after the spine surgery. I even told you all about it. Ideally, that post would have been just an intro to some future videos of me deciding to take up some new physical activity like ballet, or something. In more retrospective awareness, the wonder…Read More

Serendipitous Righteousness

Beatrice was away for a girls’ weekend. In itself, rather hubristic, but I can man up for it and house sit the doggies. The new Fitbit made them happy and they got more walks than average. …That Bea did a girls’ weekend just two weeks ago with a different set of girls is no matter…Read More

Uber Lyfts

I don’t have a dog in the competitive race, but I initially used Lyft because of free rydes whyle I was getting Lyft, Tyre and Whyyl work done on the Beemer. Airport dropoffs for my trips to Baja, car stuff…it’s all been great and I don’t have to annoy friends and family (…a friend in need is…a…Read More

Bitten By The Fitbit Bug

Yep, got it yesterday early afternoon and pretty soon became quite intrigued and even motivated by the little gizmo. I was only peripherally aware of Fitbit and a few wearable data loggers—probably by means of a walk by at Best Buy kiosk or something. First impression: how ridiculously obsessive. Then a commenter in a post a…Read More

Giordano Bruno is not Running for President

When I finally began thinking for myself—fuck everyone else—at the age of 20, finally separating from the religious indoctrination my parents never escaped from—and still have not—I read a lot about Galileo and Copernicus as visionary revolutionary types. It took a while before I learned of someone who went further.Read More

Home Battery and Solar Leapfrog Point of Order: TESLA is now a player

I understand it is very, very difficult for 99.99999999999% of you to even imagine living off grid. People are generally NOT interested in this revolutionary, earth changing disruption. They just want to pay their power-comany, municipal-monopoly by-grace-of-state-force bill and be done with it, just like their grandparents did. But, 0.000000001% of people change the world and…Read More
