20 Jul Yeah. No. Maybe. Thanks for asking!
For several years people have been asking me to write a blog. I don’t think those people had the slightest idea how much work a blog is.
But I like those people. I trust them and I appreciate that they trust me.
I also wanted to see if blogs would go away eventually and save myself some work through inaction. Unfortunately for me, blogs are more prevalent than ever today. And even more unfortunately for all of us, they are regularly full of misinformation, misrepresentation, and (more often than not) straight up fraud.
But there are also some great ones. We hope to be a great one too.
So today we are launching our blog in conjunction with the RE-LAUNCH of our website and podcast. We have been doing tons of work behind the scenes for the past year and our efforts are finally beginning to come to fruition. So we will be sharing everything we have learned, and continue to learn, with you.
Much like how nobody wants homework on the first day of school, there will be no heavy reading today. Just some of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite people. Take from them what you will.
“A fool knows everything except their own ignorance.” – African Probverb
This is our over-riding philosophy. Come in humble, open-minded, and ready to learn. Naysayers lack substance. More important than that they add nothing to the party and don’t even bring a side to share.
“The Food & Drug Administration announced today that saliva causes stomach cancer. But only when swallowed in small amounts over a long period of time.” – George Carlin
Every day a new study comes out saying this or that and each new one contradicts the one before it. We will do our best to help you make sense of it all while keeping it entertaining. Because nothing is learned from screaming matches. And they make both sides make weird faces.
“Health nuts are going to feel stupid one day, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.” – Redd Foxx
Yup. I would much rather die of “nothing” than cancer or dementia.
“Hope for the best, expect the worst. Some drink champagne, some die of thirst. The world’s a stage, we’re unrehearsed. The rich are blessed, the poor are cursed. That is a fact, friends. The deck is stacked, friends. There’s no way of knowing, which way it’s going. So hope for the best but expect the worst.” – Mel Brooks
When in doubt, always ask “What Would Mel Brooks Do?”
That’s all I’ve got.
