so, i’m diggin’ this vegetarian thing. of course, it’s only been a few days, but i’ve been reading things about how animal protien is carcinogenic, and on and on – weight-loss, disease prevention, etc. not too hard to find. like this. anyway, it’s got me all fired up, part of my 50th birthday gift to myself. seems a pretty easy way to improve my overall health. came across the phrase, “you are what you eat eats.” think about it.
i made my first career-change networking call last night, which felt good. i hope the guy really does come thru with some people for me to talk to. gotta make more calls tonight, and keep making them. i told this guy it was sort of like dating – if you get your name out to enough people, eventually one of them will agree to go out with you.
and my meds dillema is between tyabri or nothing. i’ll need to talk to my neuro about it before i make a final decision.
and someone should sit john mccain down and educate him about the middle east. he keeps making “gaffes,” i guess they are called – the latest talking about a sunni leader who would have been killed were it not for the surge that he was for, and obama was against, a leader who was a key element in making anbar a safer place. except that this leader was killed in anbar, during the surge, which was not even announced until after the so-called “anbar awakening.” what is this man talking about? he makes himself out to be an expert in middle east policies, and in warfare, etc., but he seems to have no grasp of the facts or what is really going on. someone should stop him. and yet, his campaign complains about the free ride obama has been given – i don’t see any front page stories on mccain’s apparent lack of understanding of the basics of the middle east. argh.
