8/31/2017 - I SURVIVED or did I

Greetings Family and Friends,

My Spirits and up and I have no cravings for carbs! Yes, a Blast from the Past..........Hmmm sounds like a good title for a series of future posts :-) 

If anyone has been following the news they would have noticed that Texas has got their butt handed to them (us) by the Late Great Hurricane Harvey. Jeez what a name for a Hurricane. 

I live just north of Houston in an area called The Woodlands Township better know just as The Woodlands. We got tons and tons of rain, More than any Hurricane in recent or past history. 

I have a lot of Family and Friends in the surrounding area. Some did better than others. My bosses house and vehicles were a total loss, his neighbor drowned in his own house. I believe he was an older gentleman that was wheelchair bond and was not able to get off the floor. 

How about Dave??? Well, I have to say that I, by the Grace of God, fared very well. Although at times I thought we were going to flood because of the non stop heavy rains, we were fortunate to stay dry. A couple of doors down from me a rather large tree toppled into the street. A crew came by and chopped it up pretty fast. I have some oh so giant pine trees in my backyard and was weary that one might fall over onto my house. I was very fortunate that they stood in place. I did not lose power. The subdivision south of me was under an evacuation notice and I thought we would be next. Then finally yesterday we got a much needed break in the rain. 

Before the storm I stocked up on eggs and assorted meats. I ate well during that time. I cooked up some chicken thighs, hamburger patties, pork spareribs, meatloaf, lots of bacon among other things. 

So, did I survive.............yes, Yes I did. 

Have a great day my Family and Friends. Be Strong, Live Long and Always Battle On!!!

8/21/2017 - Good Day Sunshine..........

Greetings Friends,

Wow, I was on a rooftop of a parking garage with my special glasses and to look at the eclipse. It was blocked by 66%, not too shabby. My (DW) was all excited about the whole deal and asked me to buy some Solar shades for the event. I got an OK deal on amazon. 

So, what does this have to do with (ZC)???? Well........ the sun blinded me because I did not read the instructions and the rays went past my eyes and strait to my brain and now I have a craving for doughnuts. Damned malfunctioning solar shades!!! Yeah right! Yes, another oh so weak attempt to make a funny. Sad!

Well, I did manage to get the "Before" and "After" pictures of myself back up on the homepage of the blog. I am just not ready to tackle the rest of the blog. I did notice here and there the pics are still there. I must have uploaded them directly. I am just not in the mood to go page by page to find all the pics that need to be replaced right now. I have lots on my plate at the moment. No I am not talking about a yummy Rib eye lol!!! 

Just lots of issues on the home front. It can be real consuming. Hey, I am really not complaining. All in all things are good if not great! I  just have some changes that I am getting used to and tons of home projects that need to be started let alone completed. 

All is well on the (ZC) front. I made some really great burgers on my new "GrillGrates". They are just heaven on gas grills. No flare ups and the taste is from out of the world!!! I can use them both on my mini grill and my larger grill. Best investment in a long time.

I can't wait til it cools down so I can  go fishing with my buddy. It is way too hot for me to be out there. My buddy is trying to talk me into an overnight trip, but that will have to wait for at least another month or so. It is a bit too muggy at night for me. 

Be Strong, Live Long and Always Battle On!!!

For a good laugh!!!

Hi all!!!

If you have not watch this video available on YouTube and you want to have a good laugh, it is a must.



When I realised the only result of all the medical test they could show us HAD NOTHING TO DO with eating meat, I got really mad.

The "anti-gliadin sigA" (a FECAL immunology test) result shown is for detecting celiac disease / gluten intolerance. It is in no way related to risk of cardiac disease.

They probably couldn't show the lipid profile because I am sure it was 100% NORMAL... 

This guy looks healthy like an horse and is certainly not overweight!!!

I will not make further comments...

8/11/2017 - Held for Ransom.......

Greetings all,

I feel good if not Great! No cravings for carbs and my Spirits are Soaring!!!

OK, so I noticed last month that all if not most of my pics are gone. Jeez, WTF, or Wheres the Fruit!!!! 

Yes, in all it's wisdom Photobucket decided to start charging for hosting pics. OK, so after years and years of providing a free service they decided to charge??? 

What a scam. Like me, thousands of users of this formerly free service are stuck like chuck. They well know it would be oh so hard for me and others to go back and reinsert hundreds if not thousands of photos in various pages on someones blog or website. 

I am sure as to Hell, oops sorry for the language but I am mad, am not going to pay any ransom for my pictures to be hosted there. I will have to find an alternative. It will take a long, long time for me to go all the way back to page one of my blog and reinsert all the pics. I may not even know exactly what was there. 

What a fine mess INDEED!!!

Well, I know that at the start of this post I said I was fine, but I did have an accident last month that I am almost fully recovered. I was changing the U-Joints on one of my vehicles and smashed my thumb with a 4 lb sledge hammer by accident. It could have been much worse, but by the Grace of God I did minimal, yet painful damage. It still hurts, but the pain is almost gone.

OK: so now I am the hunt for a Photobucket alternative, one day this blog will back to as close to 100% as possible. I don't post much now a days, but it is the only full Journal still available from the former original Zeroing In On Health Forum. So, I will make an effort to do what I can to give back to those who inspired me so much when I started to change my Lifestyle to Zero Carb.

Have a wonderful day! Fight the Good Fight and Always Battle On!!
