I had hoped and planned to have laid the whole thing out for you, by now. But later today I'm headed to San Antonio, TX for a family visit. My wife's brother retired as a air traffic controller to SA and she's been vying for a visit for a while. I had the free miles, she made the arrangements to stay in a property along the River Walk through Friday, then onto New Braunfels for a couple of days, and then returning early Sunday.
So, I decided a couple of days ago to just wait to dive full force into this until I get back. In the meantime, I'll serve up some light blogging, maybe some photos (the on-the-fly pics typically get published to my Facebook page and to Twitter).
This will give me time to consider some of the input I've received through comments and email. And, I'm still trying to work on a name for the overall lifestyle and philosophy (diet, exercise, fasting). Surprisingly, I have received, save one comment, nothing but encouragement. That one commenter said it smacked of a "Scientology scam." While Scientology is indeed a scam, I deleted the comment for being such a stupid "argument." The commenter also said there are better blogs out there for free, which is stupid and non-sequitur. I have repeatedly emphasized that the blog won't change. It will always have relevant and current content, and will always be free and open, with no registration requirement. It's the hub, central to everything, and it is absolutely essential that it remain free and open. As it strands now, the comment content of this blog dwarfs what I write, in terms of quantity. It would be unbelievably stupid of me to throw that away.
Also, I agree there are better blogs out there. I hope there always will be. I'm quite well aware of most of them, read them regularly, and they always drive me to improve this one. I hope you see that.
I know there are a lot of people out there who support all or most of what I'm doing. Frankly, however, I would love nothing more than to get a rigorous, well-thought-out argument as to how I may be off base, missing something, taking the wrong approach, and so on. That would help me to make sure all my ducks are in a row.
It would be nice, but I simply can't take the absence of any such arguments against me as evidence that there simply aren't any. So, here's the chance to help improve things: what am I doing wrong? I need and want your help, if there's anything you can think of.
Chew on it, will yooz? Until then, onward.
