Five years ago today ... Max took the trash out.

"Thanks MAX!!! for taking the trash out of the trash can and spreading it all thru the house after I left.... yeah...thanks for that! ^%$#$ :))
.... you can see him on the right ... he's trying to be "invisible"...."

Max was my first 'wing man' post diabetes diagnosis. His legal name is Cooksey's King Maximus.

RIP MAX! You will never be forgotten my friend.

Funny that you posted this today. I ran across some 2001 "baby" pictures of Fenris, the last dog I had before Snoopy. She died in 2006. It's never easy losing a dog, but invariably, another one shows up.

Welcome to my world.

Today I was asked to leave my place of residence. This is the third time in less than twelve months.  The reason I was asked to leave my residence? Was I a disturbance? Did I cause trouble? Did I hurt anyone? Did I fail to ...

Day 1 - This post and the next two will cover a recent three-day trip to Folly Beach, James Island, SC.

I’ll also discuss my strategies for traveling and remaining ‘low carb’ … and primal. :)

A successful day at Folly Beach. I ate clean and spent quality time with my sons. Day 2 and Day 3 are the days the Folly Beach area really shines.

I make liver pate' in my mouth, but this looks offally good. :) 

I eat it fried, grilled etc... but for those who need help, this looks excellent. 

Liver is a nutrient dense powerhouse. In fact, any 'superfood' list that doesn't include liver ... is a joke.

You can also simmer livers down, for long enough, and they'll turn into a brown gravy that's great over a stir fry of various things. I found this out quite by accident. I was like, where did my livers all go?! Well, they broke up. Low heat, of course... Funny, when I was a kid, I hated liver with a passion. Now I have it several times a week.

Who will win? The people, who obviously want the right to know?

... or Big Food and their lackeys in government? via @nntaleb on twitter 
This week, the House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill that would take unprecedented steps to deny us all the right to know basic information about what we eat.

The bill is a serious attack on transparency and presents a dubious one-size-fits-all approach to federal policy making. Most importantly, it presents a potentially serious threat to our long-term health.
