Blog Update

Thought maybe it was time to make some changes.

The Telegram RSS feed hasn’t updated for a long time, so I deleted it from the blog. Also took out some of the features that only occupy space and don’t serve much of a purpose. They’re neat “gadgets” in Blogger’s menu, but that’s about it.

Added a few things at the bottom of the page that you might want to check out – more RSS feeds. Three (Globe & Mail, New York Times and Al Jazeera English) provide news headlines of the big stories they’re covering. The other six deal with health & fitness stuff. It’s an area of interest for me although like way too many others, I read a lot about it, but don’t DO much about it.

That’s going to be changing soon. A lot of people have talked to me about Tai Chi and I saw a show about it on TV earlier today while eating lunch. I hope to get started on a Tai Chi class in the fall. Same for overall fitness. I’ve visited a few of the gyms around town and have been most impressed with New World Fitness on Topsail Rd. Their prices are very reasonable and they don’t expect you to sign up for lengthy contracts.

So, some new stuff going on.

I'm also thinking of changing the direction - or at least what I post - on my blog. Right now, in the dogs days of summer, I'm not too motivated to write. I'll post links to other sites with little substantive writing - something I didn’t intend to do when I stated the blog.

I do however, have a post in the works that is somewhat personal and I am hesitate to post it. It was become much longer than I anticipated and much more difficult to do than I thought. I also hope to post more on all levels of politics – as I’m a news junkie.

I may also try some other "creative" posts but that is somewhat intimidating. It also takes a lot of time. But alas, I’ll still post the occasional YouTube link, which is okay.

And good luck with the gym. Great for the body and the soul.

I know what you mean about changing gears … summer is sort of a mental health break for me in many ways although work keeps on going. Getting the energy to write in the blog is a challenge.

Personal reflective pieces can be difficult – trying to strike a balance between ‘too much’ and ‘enough’. I wish you well in that journey.

I’m looking forward to the health stuff although there’s always that long uphill climb to get back into action after a year and a half of couch potato-ness. Thanks for posting.
