    I've had people ask me for my advice. Most of the time it's "read these books. It's where I got my info. Here's what generally works, again, based on the books. Here's the tweaks I've made for ME, they may not do anything for you. I'm not a doc, though, so your mileage may vary." If they wade through that and start asking relevant questions, as opposed to trying to make me think for them, I answer as best I can while gently nudging them towards the books. If they start whining about how it'd be so hard, I dust them off with "you asked, I told, now you hafta decide if you want to make the leap. It'll be worth it, though."
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    I love it when friends come to me and say "I made some changes based on your Facebook posts and now my family has experienced XYZ as a result and we're so happy. Someone truly does read what you post, so please keep it coming." Ok, so only two people have done that, but still. It's a start. I put the bug into two people's ears and now with some luck, and determination and hard work of course, they'll start to experience amazing changes as well and their friends will ask and they'll share. It's refreshing to know I'm not being completely ignored.

    Ramblings, Ravings and Rants.: I’d like to say goodbye to a complicated mind

    I had a friend tell me they like reading my blog once and it made my day. I've also had people say they find the links I post on FB really interesting, even if they don't subscribe to a paleo lifestyle. Those little things are enough for me, but when introduced to a situation where there's clearly a lot of potential for having a positive impact on someone's life or health... it's tempting, but frankly, scary.

    Why does it have to be so scary? It's just food. It's not like we're suggesting they take up bull fighting or skydiving to fix their problems... just eat something FRESH instead of boxed...

    I tend to shy away from posting paleo/ primal stuff on fb. I should probably post more, because I know that at least a handful of my nonpaleo folks are GF. I just try to stay away from war zone posts.

    I don't really like romancey stuff, even paranormal. YA romance is near and dear to my heart though. Vampire Hunter D is hard to describe. It takes place about 10,000 years in the future, after the nobility (vampires) took over the Earth for a while. Humans are trying to take it back, but it's a very futuristic frontier like environment with all kinds of hybrid creatures. D is half-vampire, half-human, super powerful if he drinks blood, but he can survive just fine without it and chooses to. There are a lot of heaving bodices, but not a lot of sex, as I recall. He's really old, but looks like a young man in his late teens or early 20s and has a sexy aura that makes "women want him and men want to be him". It's just awesome.

    Hahahaha if only they had left some so I could make a mess of our ugly chandelier. I've decided that, if nothing else, I will always drape something on that awful faux-brass thing to dress it up for a holiday.

    Thanks!

    That's what I was thinking too. If you see someone taking out a couple plastic bags dripping red stuff out of them, you might want to call the authorities.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
