He, he, he, he...

This is Leia does when she's in front of the camera these days.



Both Leia and Alisa have their own visual art interest.

For Alisa, she likes to draw. Today her medium of choice was Etch-a-Sketch. Here's a picture of her first recognizable face drawing that I've seen.


For Leia, she's more interested in the camera. Here's a photo from her today of her favorite teddy bear, Scruffy.

Yet Again, PZ Is Spot On

If you don't regularly read Professor Myers, you should. His rhetoric is sometimes overly colorful; but, it would be a drab world without color now, wouldn't it?

What we have here is an attempted assassination of a politician by an insane crank at a political event, in a state where the political discourse has been an unrelenting howl of eliminationist rhetoric and characterization of anyone to the left of Genghis Khan as a traitor and enemy of the state…and now, when six (including a nine year old girl) lie dead and another fourteen are wounded, now suddenly we're concerned that it is rude and politicizing a tragedy to point out that the right wing has produced a toxic atmosphere that pollutes our politics with hatred and the rhetoric of violence?

Screw that...

Rob's Still Right

It's amazing that after all these years, Rob Fagain's still correct in his dietary prescriptions. Yet more people are coming out in favor of what NHE described so many years ago.

I was on NHE for many years (10 or so) until the girls were born. Taking care of twin infants and toddlers has kept me from eating correctly or exercising regularly. I'm finally back on NHE as my New Year's Resolution. It is day 3 of the induction period and going strong. It is far and above the most effective diet for fat loss and muscle gain I've ever seen. Heartily recommended; but, you really don't need special clubs or programs beyond understanding the science and putting in the effort yourself.

Cheers and Happy New Year to you all.
