I would like a shirt like this, but then I am big enough that I might be mistaken for a thug.  A real old thug, anyway.

The focus of MELO is the large class, but this should be useful in the smaller class, too.  I need to look into the LO concept more.

My "Life After Carbs" blog finished July with 60 posts and over 70 comments; it's averaging 50 visits a day.

I'm scaling back from blogging every day, though. That wouldn't be a realistic pace going into the fall semester. My plan is to post a minimum of three days a week: Tuesday, Thursday and on the weekend. But I'm not ruling out more posts.

As for my weight loss itself -- which is the main point -- I have stalled at 222 pounds. My goal is to weigh 215 on Labor Day. Could be a nail-biter.

The Great Phony Debt Ceiling Crisis of 2011 is now over. Are you relieved? Was any thing useful accomplished? I can't see that anything was. The deal kicks any real debt cutting down the road. If it is done, it will be done by a future Congress, not this gang of bickering children.

So maybe something was accomplished!

Games on G+, huh? There goes the neighborhood!

Don't get me wrong, I like games. But one thing I hated about Facebook was getting notices about a friend's progress collecting imaginary cabbages or delivering imaginary pizzas. I was never moved to help my friends with any of these tasks, or to play any games myself.

(Notice how I write about FB in the past tense? Interesting. It wasn't a deliberate choice, but somehow it seems right.)

I like complex strategy and war games. I like history based games. I like to play against the computer, mostly, because then I can go back and try a different plan and see how it works. I also like to design levels and scenarios. In fact, I like that as much as playing the game.

Oh, well. At least with G+, I can stick all the game players in one circle, and give it a disparaging name.

That'll fix 'em!
