The Immunization Initiative and the rest of it.

The Immunization Initiative and the rest of it.

I’ve been working on two causes at causes.com.  The first one was The Anti-Anti-Vaccine Campaign.  The intention was and is to encourage people to challenge anti-vaccine propaganda that shows up on their Facebook newsfeed.  It’s still alive but I haven’t worked out how to promote it very effectively.  The people at causes.com said it was too negative and appealed to too small a segment of the population for them to add it...

Once a beach ball. Now a mere football.

Once a beach ball. Now a mere football.

  Depending on your persuasion it could be a soccer ball, a gridiron ball but I’m actually thinking of an Aussie Rules ball.  I don’t follow Aussie Rules.  They probably have a name for their ball that isn’t just “football”, but I don’t know it.  And I’m not about to ask Dr. Google.  At least not today.  The point being that it is no longer a beach ball and no longer a basketball. This morning...

Another weighty matter

Another weighty matter

Pretty much everyone who is reading this has likely seen some of the vaccination stuff I’ve been doing.  I don’t want to write about that again, at least for now, because this is not a vaccination blog.  That wouldn’t be sufficiently chaotic.   However, I will ask that you go to http://redd.it/wd18j and vote up my article.  It’s getting a fair bit of attention, but a bit more won’t go astray. This post is just...

Still a diet seven days later.

Still a diet seven days later.

  Been away for a couple of day.  I suppose it’s time to catch up. First off I thought it would be good to mention that the morning after writing my post about starting a diet I weighed myself. I weighed 81.6kg, which was down around a kilo from the day before. My weight varies that much on a daily basis, depending on what I ate the night before or my exercise decisions or something.  I know it means nothing. However. I’m...

My first diet. Really.

My first diet. Really.

My BMI (Body Mass Index) is 25.2. Overweight starts at 25. So I’m now on a diet. I like to claim that I have always been thin. Mostly that’s because I was thin for a very long time. But little by little I’ve progressed from not thin through normal through the higher end of normal and finally to being officially overweight at 64 years of age. It’s clear to me that my idea of overweight is a non-event to most people....

Don’t suffer anti-vaccination propaganda gladly

Don’t suffer anti-vaccination propaganda gladly

My wife teaches yoga. I practice yoga. I make it clear that I’m a consumer of yoga and not a yogi. I don’t pay attention to the philosophy or spiritual side, but I like the fact that at 64 I can touch my toes and do a few other things that I might not otherwise be able to do. As the spouse of a member of the community I know lots of other teachers. Yesterday I saw a post on Facebook by a senior yoga teacher who I’ve known...
