The last two days I worked on grafting Bartlett pear scions onto our Asian pear tree. This is more difficult than you can imagine and I will try to spare you the details, but complications include birds and cats....
I've lost some weight lately, now that I've gotten hooked up with Metabolic Prime and The Metabolic Factor. 5 lbs in two weeks. I took getting off carbs and sugar rather slowly, but that part of their program seems to be true. I only get inordinately hungry when I eat sugary things, and carb-laden stuff, so I'm on my way to losing mega pounds, eventually.
Before sleep, now that I've made my way through the two metabolic books, I'm reading what seems to be my favorite book. My favorite for decades was William Gibson's Neuromancer (1986), but I'm on my fourth reading of Tom Harper's The Lost Temple (2007, St Martin's Paperbacks). Neuromancer struck a chord with me because I'd been majoring in computer science 1980-83 and doing programming and research into artificial intelligence, epistemology, etc. The Lost Temple brings cultural history and pre-history into a fast-paced, visceral tale, pitting good and bad people against each other. I also enjoy it for its spelunking episodes, besides its history of early Western religion, myth, archaeology, and philology. Decoding is also in there. I guess my research into Shakespeare set me up to appreciate this book.
I have to go now. Br-r-r-r. It's quite windy right now, and getting colder. We had 60 degrees for two days, but that's ending tonight.... Ta-Ta For Now, mes amies.
