The rains have stopped, and even though a significant portion of the expensive reclaim from my driveway is now across the street in my neighbors driveway, I’m pretty happy to see the sun.
The heat has been a challenge, tho. Moreso than last summer. It has me thinking about a cooling vest. I don’t really want to walk around wearing an ice chest, but I would like to be able to be outside for more than 20 minutes at a time.
A business associate of my wife suggested I look into Reliv, which is some sort of nutritional suppliment, supposedly very good for people with MS, fibromyalgia, etc. Anything that offers to “aid in healing” a scattershot of ailments gets a little red flag from me, but when the first seven or so Google hits were about the MLM corporation that sells the stuff, and not about what it is or what it does, that pretty much turned me completely off. And then what little I could find about the actual product hinted that it was very expensive. A no-go for me.
Not to mention that, aside from the needle part, something like this is really no different than the Rebif. Someone is making a lot of money from it, no one can promise me any kind of results, and it is – for lack of a better word – an unnatural solution to the problem. The Swank diet doesn’t make any promises either, but no one is making any money from it, it places the responsibility squarely on me, it’s cheap and I’ll never run out, it is exceedingly healthy, etc., etc. It’s not easy (I’m about 80% compliant), but nothing good ever is.
So enjoy the sun, and happy solstice! I’ll be out on the beach at 4 am on Saturday to watch the sunrise.
