We’re headed off to SoCal shortly to pick up some family, drop off the dogs with other family, and then head on over to Las Vegas for a few days. Reno is my hometown so I’m not really much into the gambling scene, although I finally played some poker on a cruise ship last June, enjoyed it, so might give that a shot. Otherwise, it’ll be a time to eat, enjoy the lights, maybe take in some movies, and I’ll be seeing Carlos Santana live. Beatrice got me tickets for my birthday.
Here’s some around the Interwebs stuff.
~ Dr. Eades delivers on a long awaited post dissecting Anthony Colpo‘s rabid insistence that the quantity of calories is the only thing that counts and not the quality. I’ve promised my own post about Colpo on a related but different matter. I hope to get to it soon.
~ Jamie Oliver at TED: “Teach every child about food.” I only got a chance to see part of it yesterday but it has been highly enough recommended out & about that I’m not going to delay sharing it.
~ I’ve posted a lot on Vitamin K2 (MK-4) going back. I’ve also linked to Chris Masterjohn’s must-read Activator X article a bunch of times. Now he has out another article on Price’s Activator X / K2 (MK-4): Cure for Cancer: Activator X May Be the Missing Link. This is why my core supplementation is a bit of omega-3 in a combo of fish, cod liver, and krill oil (about 2.5g total per day), vitamin k2, vitamin d, and now iodine.
~ Regular readers and commenters Aaron Blaisdell and Brent Pottenger, along with Seth Roberts (who has also commented here and linked from his blog) are up to something pretty big: In Summer 2011, The Ancestral Health Movement Will Converge on UCLA for a (Pre) Historic Event… Go take a look at the tentative list of panelists, of which I’m proud to have been included.
Finally, find at least one restaurant where you can have things your way, all the way. One thing that weighs on my mind is that I eat out fairly often, especially for late breakfast or lunch. I typically ask for my eggs to be done in butter, and I pass on potatoes almost always because of the frankenoils they use. However, Gunther is always willing to do it my way. My eggs get cooked in real butter and the German style potatoes (boiled, sliced and then fried with onion) get done in bacon drippings. Just this morning
Probably light blogging next week, but we’ll see. Depends on what strikes my fancy.
