Welp, someone has WAY too much time on their hands and, of course, a webcam...
So I'm headed to a data center in Colorado Springs for the next ten days (Dec 11-20). During that time, I'll be staying at a nice hotel with a gym, but I gotta ask: what do you do to stay in shape while traveling? In particular, how do you handle all the eating out?
I think my suite has a kitchen. If it doesn't, wow, this is going to be a rough week for sticking to my eating plan :)
So this picture captures the feeling of the average American citizen toward the Big 3 auto-maker bailout (note: language alert!):
The Supreme Court rejected an appeal that Barack Obama was not a natural-born citizen due to his dual British-American citizenship at the time of his birth. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/12/08/scotus-rejects-appeal-qu... . In sum, he was born on American soil, to an American mother, despite a father who was a British subject.
Say Congratulations to the new IT Manager at Tiny-But-Growing-Corp!
I feel dumber already ;)
The combination of 'online' and 'misrepresentation' hasn't reached standard household, or geek-hold, term status. But it might soon. Real soon.
One of the really annoying things that happens is the constant revival of 'My Pictures'. This thing will not die. No matter how many times I manually delete this folder continues to return. Help on putting this thing in the grave once and for all?
Happy Thanksgiving from me to you! I know it's been a bit quiet around here lately. I have a whole boatload of blog ideas that I plan to unleash this coming Monday. Think of this as the calm before the storm...
We all know THOSE kind of Christians. Yeah. This lady lets us know in no uncertain terms that she's not one of THOSE kinds of Chrisians.
A well-known side-effect of a low-carbohydrate way of eating is the production of "ketone bodies" by the liver as a by-product of metabolizing fat to fuel the process of converting proteins into glucose to provide the body's daily carbohydrate needs. Muscles, organs, and the brain all lap up the ketones as an energy source, and even function more efficiently on ketones than glucose. In fact, the human heart functions much more efficiently on ketones than on glucose, and this increase in efficiency is part of the reason a low-carbohydrate diet can be successfully used to treat those with heart problems.
