Meats full of Wellness

Sun, 07/08/2012 - 18:47 -- webmaster

OK, so I've procrastinated long enough on a full report. As you might know, a couple of months ago I won a contest and the prize was a $100 gift certificate to be used at U.S. Wellness Meats. I've been wanting to try their products since I found out about them, and this was the big chance, so I took it. After some careful planning I was able to get a nice selection of varying products. When I was working on the order, I also got a 15% discount, which was a nice bonus.

I did take my time trying out my order. That's partly why its taken me so long to write up this review.

Better, Stronger, Faster - Vitamins?

Fri, 05/18/2012 - 17:35 -- webmaster

For a long time now I've been taking vitamin supplements. I've always considered them as a sort of insurance. If the stuff I was eating didn't quite give me everything I needed, the pills would fill it out. Or so I thought.

Ever since my late twenties I've been a pretty conscientious eater, and have eaten healthier than most people. But after 17 years as a thoughtful vegetarian, taking vitamins regularly, I ended up with a shortage. A blood test confirmed that I was short of vitamin B12. I hadn't been doing as good a job as I'd thought.

Using Less with Omega

Sun, 05/06/2012 - 00:21 -- webmaster

So I'm working on a website and I finally got time to look into using Less. Its a cool tool that allows you to write CSS like a computer language instead of just a bunch of weirdly disconnected styling statements. It looks like it could increase productivity and make editing significantly easier. And of course there's a Drupal module to make it easy.

My afternoon in Manch

Mon, 03/26/2012 - 21:13 -- webmaster

In the last few weeks, I've been having really bad cramps in my calves that last for days. I initially figured they were mostly a symptom of the stress I've been dealing with. I've noticed that when I'm around people I tense up, and have only been able to relax completely after a good night's sleep in a room where I'm alone.

My Silver Story

Fri, 03/09/2012 - 12:53 -- webmaster

I've had lots of people ask me how I got involved in precious metals. Its not the most exciting story, but people seem to like it so here it is.

How it should have started

Back when I was in the army, I once went with a friend to a pawn shop. As he drove, he explained that every paycheck he went and bought one ounce of silver. I don't remember a lot of the details, but I do remember thinking the piece he picked up was interesting, but I really didn't "get it".

Weather and moods

Fri, 02/17/2012 - 22:46 -- webmaster

Two days ago I had a gloriously productive day (compared to recent history anyway). I went for a jog, made a great breakfast, and got a lot of work done. But yesterday sucked. It started out OK with another good jog and a nice breakfast, but the rest of the day I was unable to get into gear. Pretty much the entire day was a waste and I was certainly more irritable.

Its been a while since I wrote anything for this blog. Its about time I tried getting in the habit of more frequent postings. Today's post will be a general health update.

The Good News

I recently got entered into the VA health care system, and have been checking things out. I have full coverage (but no dental) so I can afford it.

Now on Drupal 7

Wed, 11/02/2011 - 20:02 -- webmaster

Well I finally got around to upgrading this site to Drupal 7.

It went better than I thought it would. My test run took a few hours to do, and it kinda failed. But I went ahead anyway, using the lessons learned, and it came out pretty well.

Now I can move on to making some of the changes I had been planning. If I have time. There's always something else that needs doing.
