Nope…  my streak ending is not on the same level as …. Cal Ripken’s 2,632 consecutive games played nor Byron Nelson’s 11 consecutive PGA tour wins… Background For breakfast yesterday, I ate nothing as I normally do, those in the primal/paleo community generally call this intermittent fasting, click here for more […]

A Streak Ends! … say it ain’t so Joe!



Two days ago I discovered that the high school had left me a couple of toys to play with … I had never noticed these before… I was ELATED!  both are in the picture above! NO! Not my wife Tammy!! … the toys are (1) the sled and (2) the […]

There is a growing epidemic of misery. The obesity/diabetes epidemic is growing daily.  Here is a recent report, “Diabetes Doubles”.

Low Carb Paleo, Diabetic Birthday Dinner




I saw this today and just had to post about it.   How can anyone see this and not become outraged??? JDRF = Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Some are so blinded by the ‘Influence Peddlers’, even some diabetics support this ‘bovine feces’….. How are companies such as PepsiCo and KFC […]

“Bovine Feces” Good for Diabetes?


My wife uses a slightly different form of reverse psychology almost every week when she buys Cheetos, Gatorade, Doritos, or some other very tasty non-nutritious food or drink that she knows I can’t consume.

Primal 50th Birthday, New Personal Record

Roast and Creamed Cauliflower w/ Gravy


Growing up… we ate a lot of meat. London Broil was not a ‘cut’ that I can ever remember eating in my youth. In fact it is a cut that I never had (that I recall) until I went ‘low carb paleo’. Since my diabetes diagnosis I have become much […]
