Jack 3.0


Long-time readers of these posts will remember the legendary SoBeDi diet era. When I managed to lose 30 pounds by more-or-less following the South Beach Diet and getting lots of exercise. As expected, many of those lost pounds found their way home, and it's now long past time to do something about it. Permanently this time, I hope.

Driving around the area, I'm seeing progress, slow progress, but progress in the process of restoring power. But it's a little surprising how many places are still dark. Right now I'm sitting in the public library, using their free wifi (and heat), to do some work, and wait until the power returns. If it doesn't come back I'll head back down to my parent's house in Epping for the night, which is where I (and two other siblings) spent last night....
