Quiet End To The Year

I have not blogged for a while.

Have been recovering from a fractured scapula which I self inflicted by falling over playing hockey.

Bit of a shame as I was getting pretty fit and strong having made a comeback from a torn calf muscle in August.

So for the last part of the year I have been hobbling around so to speak.

The silver lining – still figuring it out – but it did slow me down somewhat which is not a bad thing. I remembered what a fantastic life I am . The gifts I have received in life and the good people I share life with.

School holidays are here! I’m not doing Christmas presents this year. A good feed and some Christmas songs and family time will do quite nicely!

I have quoted Seth Godin before – the man is a genius – here is a list from a few days ago. Brilliant. Don’t you just love the era we live in!

Assorted tips, hope they help

  1. No stranger or unknown company will ever contact you by mail or by phone with an actual method for making money easily or in your spare time. And if the person or company contacting you asserts that they are someone you know, double check before taking action.
  2. Don’t have back surgery. See a physiatrist first, then exhaust all other options before wondering if you should have back surgery.
  3. Borrow money to buy things that go up in value, but never to get something that decays over time.
  4. Placebos are underrated by almost everyone.
  5. It’s almost never necessary to use a semicolon.
  6. Seek out habits that help you overcome fear or inertia. Destroy those that do the opposite.
  7. Cognitive behavorial therapy is generally considered both the quickest and most effective form of addressing many common psychological problems.
  8. Backup your hard drive.
  9. Get a magnetic key hider, put a copy of your house key in it and hide it really well, unlabeled, two blocks from your house.
  10. rice cooker will save you time and money and improve your diet, particularly if you come to like brown rice.
  11. Consider not eating wheat for an entire week. The results might surprise you.
  12. Taking your dog for a walk is usually better than whatever alternative use of your time you were considering.

Told you they were assorted.
