Happy New Year

Well, it’s 2019. I remember when I thought maybe the world would end by the year 2000 because of Y2K. I have long since given up on trying to know when the world will end. I think there are more important things in life.

Friends, family, and love are what life is all about. To love is to live. In fact, there is no real life without love. You are missing out on life without love.

I have spent the last week with family and friends in Texas and I have had a blast. And back in South Carolina where I live I have even more friends and family.

Friends are a must, and so is being a friend. I learned a long time ago that if you don’t show yourself to be a friend it is likely you wont have friends. And I have some great friends. I am surrounded by them. I can only hope that I will eventually be as good at being a friend as they are. I would not have survived 2018 without them.

And I don’t know what to tell you what you should do about love interest. I am mostly clueless. I am, however, starting the 2019 with someone I think is special. I have known her for nearly 30 years. She is one of the nicest people I know, and a really good friend.

So this year has the potential to be one of the best of my life. It is certainly one of the best beginnings. I am looking forward to seeing it unfold.

I hope everyone has a great year in 2019. We all need something good in our lives. The world in general needs something good to happen. May blessings and good fortune follow you all.

Happy New Year!

Into The New Year

IMG_0298I am beginning the year with a very bad cold. It started with a very sore throat 3 days ago. Then last night, it just exploded into snot, phlegm, and stuffiness. I feel awful. Forgive the picture. I had trouble stopping the flow of yuck.

Last year, as far as eating healthy and sticking to an eating plan, I failed. That is not my plan this year. The plan is a simple one. It is the same as before; low carbs, high fat, and moderate protein.

It is the Ketogenic diet. It works well. It is easy. High carb foods are hard to resist though, almost like an addiction. Two years ago I managed to go a long time without cheating. I lost nearly 40 pounds. But I get bored sometimes. And when I get bored I start looking for a treat, a sweet treat. Not good if you are a baker.

I guess it will require a little discipline. Sometimes its like I don’t know the concept. Anyway, it has been a rough start. I’ll be glad when I get over this cold.

A new year and new challenges and hopes of new successes abound in 2018. I will keep you posted.
