September 30, 2020 – The 2020 Wave……

When I was in my twenties I worked, briefly, on a fishing boat in Alaska. I was going through one of those times where I didn’t know what I wanted to do in my life, that is not an unusual phase for me to be in. Anyway, there was this one specific day when it …

Ugh – no more cheat days

I checked my blood sugar before bed last night. I wanted to end the week on a good note. My blood sugar had skyrocketed to a number that I’m too embarrassed even to tell you all. Let’s say it was way higher than 200mg, to the point where Jean Valjean wanted me to go to …

I call myself the Self Made Diabetic because I know that I had something to do this. In the last 46 years of my life, I’ve not taken care of myself, which caused this illness. This morning Jean Valjean was in the bedroom watching a zoom funeral. He was sniffing and then laughing. It made …

A friend of ours told us about a DoorDash deal, you get an entree and a slice of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory for $15. We talked about it yesterday, but for whatever reason, it didn’t work out. Today was the day! Honestly, I was going to be really good, just get the Cobb Salad …

Work Week Sous Vide Brisket

Last Thursday my mother in-law invited us over to her house for a happy hour. At the end of the happy hour she handed me a fourteen pound beef brisket, ‘Ronald, can you cook this for us?’ She asked. There are times in life when it’s better to not ask that many questions. I’ve got …

That makes sense, right? This morning I was listening to an audible program by Mel Robbins. She is one of my …

September 19-20 – Cheat Day

Saturday is supposed to be cheat day, and boy, did I cheat! I thought I’d be good and wait until 3:30 pm to eat. We were ordering tacos from this place in LA called Kraken Tacos. I dreamt about these taco’s all week; they are a real treat. They were supposed to arrive at 3:30 …

September 18, 2020 – RBG and Earthquakes

I started this post yesterday, on the 18th and then a bunch of things started happening, RBG passed away, and then we had an earthquake. The earth was quaking with sadness. You all, it was the weirdest thing. I was on the phone with a great friend who lives in Burbank; he said; we’re having …

September 17, 2020 – Lettuce eat sandwiches.

lunch I love sandwiches, the kind with lots of meat, just like I used to get at the deli when I lived on Long Island. The thing about sandwiches is that they have bread, duh. Many places say that they do lettuce wraps, but none like Mike’s Deli here in Los Angeles. It’s the only …
