Judy has been keeping all of you informed daily about our progress on a number of fronts, so I will just highlight and give the Vince perspective on a few of things you already know about.
Healthy living is moving along well. I am losing weight, feeling pretty good, and I even have more energy to get a few more Judy dos done each day. Since we are getting good results, the viewing of new health information has decreased a bit and more effort is being placed in other areas. If we hit a wall or stumbling block, I we will spend the time to figure out what is going on and get it corrected so we can stay on track. I feel much better about what we are doing now than anything we have tried in the past.
Our focus on growing things is still getting attention. We decided to replace some fruit trees that have died and I am getting more garden spots ready to plant. The weather has been highly variable this week so I have been taking advantage of the warmer times to be work outside and the minimizing continues inside when it’s chilly. I received notice that my mushroom plugs have been shipped so that will be high on the list of things to get done once they arrive.
One thing I did accomplished was getting rid of no longer needed or wanted emails and facebook groups. I was getting so much email each day, the good stuff was hidden by the junk. It’s amazing that, over time, how much junk comes in that never was requested. Even more amazing is how hard it can be to unsubscribe from some senders. There seems to be a direct correlation between the more useless the email the harder they make it to unsubscribe. And why does it take days to get your address off their mailing list?
I mostly only use facebook to see information from groups associated with my hobbies. Some of the groups, as you can guess, include: 3d printing, mushroom growing, writing, woodworking, etc. I realized that many groups post so much junk that, just like email, their information was hiding post from groups which had posts I really was interested in reading. We are truly overwhelmed with information and much of it is pure garbage. This week I received a couple of unsolicited emails advertising free websteams that would teach us to do things of interest to us. I should have known better but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. So we tuned in and both just ended up being mostly sales pitches. It’s pretty obvious when presenter says nothing of use for the first twenty minutes or so. Oh well, we chalked it up to a learning experience and we were doing other things while they were playing in the background so it was not a complete waste of time. One never knows because sometimes you can pick up a useful tidbit that at least gets you thinking.
With all that is on my plate, I am debating whether or not to undertake a new hobby of sorts and that is to write an ebook. I have been considering a number of helpful topics that I believe would be of interest to an audience of mature readers just like you. Please let me know if there is a topic that we have touched upon that you would like us to explore in more detail. It would have to be something that we are qualified to address and that we can feel comfortable writing about. Just put your ideas in the comment section under this post and I will let you know which ones we agree are good candidates for the ebook.
That’s about it for this week. Stay healthy and don’t forget to leave me your thoughts about the ebook. V
