What’s new (June 25, 2017)
If you’ve been following along with me recently, the latest changes are:
Mama always told me not to look into the eye’s of the Sun ... sunrise in Virginia Beach, April, 2017.
I made it eight minutes on the elliptical trainer yesterday. That’s pretty much a record since all of this mast cell disease stuff started becoming a problem in 2011/2012.
April 24, 2015: I don’t know how you spend your mornings, but these days I spend 40 minutes each morning administering intravenous medicine to myself via a PICC Line that has been inserted/installed in my arm and chest. You can read about the whole experience in my diverticulitis diary if you’d like.
(April 24, 2017: Today marks the 11th consecutive month that I haven’t required a trip to the ER, which is pretty much a record for my last four years.)
Here’s a link to Jeff Bezos’ letter to Amazon shareholders, circa April, 2017. Possibly one of the most important phrases to me personally is his concept of, “Disagree and commit.”
I was driving in western Kentucky around four o’clock on Friday morning, and I was able to get in radio stations from Arkansas, Iowa, Chicago, Cleveland, and Atlanta. That was pretty cool.
While this photo looks like a sunset, it was actually a sunrise. I took it in Virginia Beach on April 17, 2017.
I call it, “Up With the Sun, Gone With the Wind.”
Per this tweet, this is what the gas prices look like on Alaska’s north slope on April 10, 2015.
Here’s another photo of the Moon rising over the Atlantic Ocean, Virginia Beach, Virginia.
