- I hope your Christmas was wonderful. We had a good time with friends and family. All of our time was spent in San Diego, so we didn't have any travel woes.
- I love putting up Christmas lights. I have decided that the three pronged power cord is the enemy of good electrical distribution. I am moving to 6 or more outlets on every power cord in 2020.
- I had a good number of Christmas beers (both brewed for the Holidays or gifts) this year. Here are three of the more recent ones:
I need to do this more, but alternating COLD with HEAT on sore muscles has proven to me over and over again that I need to make the time to do this. SO HARD TO DO! But worth the time.
I have been experimenting since the beginning of November with intermittent fasting. Basically I only eat between 12 noon and 8 p.m. It has really worked well for me from a couple of standpoints: (1) no negative impacts; (2) I feel better overall; and (3) I think the long-term benefits are promising. The one interesting thing that I can't really explain is that even though I'm eating less I did before intermittent fasting that I have not lost any weight. My weight has stayed steady.

All is basically good with my Bulged Disc. My solution - daily Pilates-based stretching, using a roller (legs, back, & shoulders), heat then cold, and alternating workouts (run, swim, bike, repeat).
TECHNOLOGY AND TIPS
My Zoom audio recorder was having a screen issue (the LCD was getting blurry and hard to read). I contacted their tech support and they replaced the unit for $165 since it was out of warranty. I thought that was a fair transaction.
FUTURE STUFF THAT I AM EXCITED ABOUT
- Happy New Year 2020! Don't forget that 2019 was the "future" year of Blade Runner.
- Christy and I are heading to Yuma at the end of January to see one of my favorite 80's cover bands - Checker'd Past.
- Family vacation planning for 2020.
