What I’ve learned from Cats (and Women)

My pets are unique. They’re unique because I’m always home – which means they get to see “me” all the time. They’ve learned a lot from a human being. My cats eat like me. I’ll get to that in a moment.

I have this one cat – a Blue Russian – she’s an eating MACHINE. I’m pretty sure this is just in her nature – but watching me eat over the years probably hasn’t helped. In any event – I need to feed my cats manually throughout the day – as opposed to what you’d normally do: fill a bowl with food for each one every morning.

I could have five cats all with a bowl full of food in the morning – and they’d ALL be empty after their first meal because the Blue Russian would eat everything the other cats didn’t finish. So that’s that. I feed my cats 4-5 times per day – depending on how many hours I’m awake.

Hair Loss and How I Beat It

The Secret Of My (Hair) Success – Fighting Hair Loss – That was originally the title of this post – and it sounded ridiculous to me since I’ve never been one of those guys with “cool” hair. But I don’t care. I’m going on 45 and I still have it – most of it, anyway. And that’s all I ever wanted (hair-wise). I really don’t care about having a perfect hair style. I’m just glad my head is covered with hair. I’m NOT one of those guys that would look good bald. So hair loss has always been a concern of mine…

I first noticed my hair loss right before high school. It was kind of off to the left side and back of my head. It felt thin – and I freaked out. When I turned 18 I got my first Rogaine prescription. It was about $80 per month back in 1989. Yes, you had to see a doctor to get it. I couldn’t afford any more than one month’s supply – so that didn’t last. I started supplementing and using special shampoos, hair thickeners and various other over the counter preparations to keep my hair and maybe grow some back.

I made my own Avocado Mayonnaise. My way…

So I made my own avocado mayonnaise. But don’t be too proud of me – I made it “my way”. My way actually includes a little real mayonnaise. My main objective wasn’t to have the healthiest “stuff” on Earth. It was to make something I really like (and eat often) a little less unhealthy. Here’s the deal…

Just about every night I have a grilled chicken wrap using ridiculously psychotically awesome “Joseph’s Super Soft Flax, Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Lavash Bread”. It’s so stupidly awesome that I’m not even going to talk about it anymore – other than the fact that if you’re trying to be healthy and you want a really good “wrap” – this is it…
